(indetail plz cause i'm not so good at this stuff)
1- what is wolfbreak? and what is cm6?
2- how can i download this on my phone?
3- what would that do to my existing settings and apps?
4- how can i back up my apps and contacts?
5- is it ok to upgrade while the upgrade isn't officialy released?
6- whould that be harmful to the phone?
7- if i don't like it .. can i restore my old system back?
8- is it better to wait until the official release?
I know this is too much .. but i'd really love if i can figure this stuff out .. thank u so much in advance
Oh god. That is alot of questions.
Don't know what wolfbreak is. CM6 and a ton of other custom ROMs are here
XPERIA X10 Android Development - xda-developers
It is a process to install a custom ROM. You need to:
-root and flash phone by following instructions here:
[FLASHTOOL GUIDE] HOW TO for n00bies
-then root again just in case
-make sure you can boot into xRecovery then copy a custom ROM on your SDCard and install the custom ROM in xRecovery
It would completely wipe the phone clean. (maybe not some stuff on the SDcard)
Do a backup using Android software. Using your gmail account it backs up contacts and whatever else you set. For backing up apps, either just reinstall or use Titanium Backup....which you might need to root your phone first to fully back everything up.
As for the other questions....It is up to you. You will have to do some more reading to answer the other questions for yourself.
What you might be looking for might be a different loader....that changes a little without having to do any of that stuff.
