Although the Sony Xperia T LT30p and the Sony Xperia TX LT29i don’t have a flood of ROMs like the Samsung or Google smartphones do, their ROM builds are pretty strong and stable. When newer ROMs don’t seem to come packed with the features you want, you can always count on custom kernels. To get you started, you can try the simple stock-based kernel known as the gregkernel.
XDA Developers member gregbradley introduces this rooted kernel based on stock software from the LT30p and LT29i. If you want to keep your phone fast and snappy, this is the best kernel to flash. The gregkernel also comes with ClockworkMod Recovery.
Also, if you’re an XDA [...]
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. Now every Xperia T user and developer can take advantage of this fast and optimized kernel. This kernel comes with autoroot, I/O schedulers, optimized governors, custom ClockworkMod-based recovery with touch gestures, and STweaks support. The kernel also has undervolting and overclocking support with fast-dormancy disabled by default.
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 [...]

Both the Xperia T LT30p (Xperia TL LT30at) and the Xperia TX LT29i are gorgeously designed, standing out from the competition — thanks to their curved backs, 13 MP shooters, and gorgeous displays.
Both of these phones, however, also stand out for another reason. While a lot of competitors are producing quad-core beasts, these two Sony devices are equipped with dual-core processors. Does this mean that these phones have been left behind? The Xperia T is best known as the Bond phone, complete with a cameo appearance in Bond’s latest movie [...]
The Sony Xperia T LT30p (Xperia TL LT30at on AT&T in the U.S.) is a gorgeous device bearing Sony’s unique design, but Sony isn’t the only smartphone manufacturer out there that knows how to design a phone. The LG Optimus G was LG’s latest offering to the market, and it certainly did not disappoint either. Not only was it a powerful phone, it was quite attractive, as well, especially with its glittering backpanel.
With Google and LG’s collaboration to produce the Nexus 4 E960, you can now find a similarly beautiful glittering backpanel on the latest phone in the Nexus series. The Nexus 4 is a truly attractive phone, enough to match the Xperia [...]
