    Hello, I just got my Xperia Ray ST18i, so basically, I'm new to the Android scene. I followed the instructions here Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray: Full Update Guide - CyanogenMod Wiki except for the optional backup. After installing CM7.1, I got stucked in the "touch the android..." I followed the instructions here Troubleshooting - CyanogenMod Wiki But when I selected the zip in the clockwork mod recovery, some assertion error appeared. I tried using other versions of CM but still the assertion error appears. In short, I am stucked in the Clockwork mod recovery. I am thinking of using the Flashtool and downloading the stock official firmware. Do you know any solution to this before I revert back to the original firmware? Thanks, I'm really frustrated right now. I've been doing this for around 8 hours :(

    Usually assert fails when you dont have the ROM for the relevant device .

    If the first firmware worked(the one with touch the android) ,then flash the firmware again and dont flash Gapps .
    You should automatically Boot into CM android

    Did you download the files from here ?

    Yes I did use the I also use this one for troubleshooting the bootloop but then the assert error came. I don't see why when I first install the worked and when fixing the bootloop with the same CM didn't work.

    Sorry I cant help you much .

    its funny it worked for the first time and not the other :(.

    Just in case do one thing .
    Do a factory reset and try flashing the ROM again .
    I cant think of anything else .

    Finally got it to work. It seems that is the problem. I installed and it worked. Thanks everyone.

    Glad you got things worked out. I've moved this to the Xperia Ray - All Things Root sub-forum so that it can be of help to others who may run into the same issue.
