Current firmware works much better, and you need to perform System Repair to sort out some problems (or just Factory reset your phone and do clean install.
Alternative is to install Honami MoonWalker v 8.0 (rooting and CWM Recovery is mandatory, but easy to perform even for newbies, all you need is to follow instructions on xda-devolpers forum.

It's the most stupid phone ever bought by me. It is very slow, the Instagram or the Skype applications have the camera covered in black more than a half, if I want to answer to someone I can't answer because it's not responding, all other applications work slow and the phone is not responding some times. This is happening with the 4.04 Android. Upgrading it makes it even worse. I can't answer most of the calls or if I want to close a phone call it doesn't do it at all. I want to smash it!

To solve your problems you probably need System Repair or clean installation (which will probably remove 'root' but that wouldn't be the problem now that you know how to do it.
I recommend you to go to xda-developers forum and search for Honami MoonWalker v8.0 and install this custom ROM on your Xperia P for full eXperience. ;-)

I's easy and simple (no need to flash pre-rooted ROM like on other smartphones).
I downloaded and rooted my xperia p using the same Doomlord. But some the problems that were there before are still there:
- the speaker stops working (no incoming caller tones, no alarms, no notification sounds)
- the Sony's Album is not showing any images or videos!
Is there anything more that I can do?
Thanks in advance

I have this phone. But most of the time its loud speaker does not work. I have shown the phone to their service centre but no proper response/action. Their service to the customer is very poor.
