Update Sony Xperia P To Android 4.1.2 JB MoonBreaker v3.5 Custom ROM

I’ve always been a fan of stock based custom ROMs, the only reason is, stock firmware based custom ROMs are modified for the best performance results at an extremely great level. These ROMs are usually bug free and also loaded with tons of features and mods that make your device fly high having the greatly modified firmware running on-board. While spending some time in the development threads for Xperia P, I collected several custom ROMs, and the one sitting atop is JB MoonBreaker.
