I'm thinking of buying the phone (it's old I know, but I'm budget-constrained

Gabe, you seem to be something of an expert in this field, so maybe you have some good ideas?
I am no expert. I have been hacking my Xperia X8 thru trial and error ever since I bought the X8. I have been using my Xperia X8 for about 11 months now. I bought the Xperia X8 because I knew there was custom rom software support for it beyond Android Eclair 2.1.1 (2.1.1 is really primitive stuff).
I would highly recommend the Xperia X8 E15i to you (not all Xperia X8 are the same - E15a models are fussy and need baseband mods) because it is easy to mod and almost impossible to "brick" (unless you have a hardware problem).
I am currently using GingerXperia V13 on my Xperia X8. I didn't like the newer versions as it runs better with custom kernels.
I know some devs over at XDA Developers are now developing a custom Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 for the Xperia X8. I hope they will be successful.
