android top 10 apps
Xperia T (LT30a)

If you are the proud owner of the Xperia T

I have some good news for you!

I have made a rom for our Xperia T that has better battery life, Plus a little more responsive.

Why I did this

android gingerbread 2.3

I loved the phone but the first thing i noticed was the poor battery life, I chalked this up to all the apps my carrier (rogers) decided I needed (8 apps from my carrier). I figured if I could remove them from my Xperia T the phone would be more like what Sony intended it to be.

So what started out on a quest to remove carrier apps has turned out to be a project on making Android run better on our Xperia T.

All Carrier apps Removed

So Rogers put 8 apps on my phone, now there is none from rogers. The good news is if you want any of the Rogers apps you can install them from Google Play Store. In my opinion all carrier apps should be allowed to be uninstalled by the user, maybe Google and it's vendors could be more pro active on what carriers are allowed to add on devices.

Here's a list of the rogers app's that we're on the Xperia T

  • Rogers My Account
  • Rogers Anyplace TV Live
  • Rogers One Number
  • Visual Voicemail Plus
  • Rogers Shop
  • Rogers Ringtones
  • Rogers Ringbacks
  • Rogers Games

  • Other App's removed that can still be added from Google Play Store if Needed.
  • EnchantedForest
  • mcafeesuite
  • neoreader
  • officesuite

  • Improved power management

    Added some tweaks to manage the battery better and improve performance.

  • build.prop tweaks
  • Added use of init.d tweaks
  • Tweaked the installer-script

  • Excited Yet?

    if you are unsure on how to flash a rom, root a phone, answer a text or use an android phone you may want to do a little reading before you begin.. If by chance you mess up or I upload a rom that messes up your phone you ultimately are on your own and take full responsibility for anything that happens to your phone. So all jokes aside take care and read if your unsure, Have fun.


    If you are new to the whole android scene, please spand the time to understand what you are doing and what is at stake. If you take the time to read and understand the lingo you should be ok.

    All the info you need to be able to install this ROM is avaiable at the XDA.

    Feel free to leave some comments.

    So many new apps are coming!!

    It has been reported that android just hit 30,000 apps. Yeah i know it's still way behind the iphone, but I do suspect that this number will double by christmas. The way I look at it is you can install an application from bluetooth, usb, download from your phone and more, so it will make other sites pop up as time goes on to sell apps.

    Just read an article that even AOL is getting in on the android app business and has developed 2 apps already. ;-) Yeah I know who is still using AOL. L0L
