XDA Developer member gokhanmoral, the well-known developer of one of the best custom kernels in town, has released the SiyahKernel for the Sony Xperia T LT30p.

Currently, the latest version has a 2- to 3-minute lag when you apply settings. Some STweaks settings are also not very effective. Unfortunately for JellyBean ROM users, the [...]
