CyanogenMod 12 Beta 6 For Sony Xperia L Brings Much Awaited Screen Scan Fix and A Bunch of Other Stuff

  One of the most annoying things in CM/CM based ROMs for Sony Xperia L was the infamous screen scan effect after a fresh boot of the device. The bug floods all CM11 / CM12 builds and all other ROMs based on it before this. But no more, I have managed to fix the issue right to it’s cause, which was the kernel. Device specific changes:
– Fixed Screen scan effect after every boot – Fixed Blue screen crashes on various occasions – Reverted MAC-address fixes in order to diagnose WiFi issues by users – Fixed Music control play/pause through headset buttons – Provide initial vibration feedback when phone starts. – FM radio is back, which was missed out in last beta – CPU clocked back to Sony’s default stable freq 1026Mhz
[adblockingdetector id=”2″] CM Specific changes:
– New Bootanimation – New Tiles: ADB over Network, NFC, AudioFX, LTE,, Lockscreen, System Profiles, Compass, Performance profiles. – Optimizations to Theme Engine – Brand new wallpapers – Voice dialer is now removed – New CM Setup Wizard – New Ringtones && Notification sounds – ‘Accept all Files’ option when receiving multiple files over Bluetooth.

    Hey varun,

    I tried flashing beta 6 from. beta 5 through cm recovery and it failed due to some /misc not able to mount. Should I flash thunderzap 4.12 and then upgrade to beta 6?


    p.s. keep up the splendid work.

    Hey Varun, this is really nice work. Keep it up!
    One question: when do you plan to release a new cm11 with all the fixes you putted on cm12? It’d be really nice to have it, since cm12 is not that stable as cm11… Hope you can build and release it.

    • Varun Chitre says:

      Update your kernel to ThunderZap 4.13, that should fix the issue.

      • Marcos Vinícius Saints says:

        Hi , I’m having trouble with the machine restarting all the time. Should I install the kernel with FlashTool ? ThunderZap 4.13 is compatible ?

    Hay Varun, thanks before, but my wifi and bluetooth canot detect 🙁
    can you give solution?

  21. Dave says:

    Great work here, one problem though is with the latest beta (6 as of writing) and latest ThunderZap installed (4.13 as of writing) the device AAC codec seems to be either broken or missing. A result of this is that the device video camera will not be able to write files as it cannot encode the audio. A workaround to get video recording to work is to change the audio codec away from AAC, this will allow you to save video files now, but the audio will not play, so you can record video but not audio via the camera app. Would be great to see this fixed.

    My installation process: I performed a full device wipe/cache clear, installed the latest ROM via ClockworkMod directly (this was not an upgrade or dirty flash), rebooted. Allowed phone to boot. Powered off, flashed ThunderZap via fastboot, then rebooted.
