    The links with roms are dead. The OTA link are *.еxe files, which downloads a lot of adware and opens a malware links.

    V2.0 is out, and ready for purchase, Using it right now on my Xperia Neo, full Z3 experience and rock stable, the only bad think is his price, 16 E is a litle bit expensive but atleast they offers good support, and my xperia neo feel fresh, and its smother then the original ICS or GB firmware

    its available on
