need help with my xperia :$


  1. Hello everyone I'm a bit of a noob in the area of phone Modding and need some help to take it further.

    I have a Sony erricson xperia play r800i and wanted to root to put all the cool stuff like Sony bravia engine n beats audio n stuff on my phone plus sort out the problem of eternal memory n make itvrun faster. I rooted with superoneclick and it went well but I didn't know what to do then so I tried unlocking my bootloader and it says its already unlocked so I thought it was because of root , I tried unrooting wich didn't work properly a few times then it did so I tried unlocking bootloader again n said it was still unlocked . I then tried to re-root so I could see if I could install what I wanted but it wont root again .
    Any ideas on what to do if I can reset my phone to root again n if my boot loader is saying it is unlocked then will I be able to install bravia engine as such if rooted?

    Thanks for reading hope you can help me :)

    Well how did you unroot the device is the biggest problem. Now what you need to do is get a app called root checker . Boot the phone up and check to see if you rooted . Also did your root include a recovery .. should be clockworkmod .....

    Yes when you had it rooted did you see the recovery and did you make a back up with the recovery... once u made a recovery you need to have a rom to flash to your device which should be located on your sd card after you place it on it .if you have problems with superone click you can see step by step video on YouTube. Just put super one click but read doom lords rooting its easy and he put his foot in it cause it works and do the dam thang i give him all credit for that one :D:eek::what::thumbup:

    Some phoes you can is yours gb (gingerbread) if so http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=29713944

    This is your proof that you can now ics will be a problem cause you have down grade ..... i think the flash tool is better and quicker just you have to have the rom of choice to use flash tools . But if you root u can browse to see many things your device can do rooted .... :D:eek:

    Also what is your phone make and model and which carrier do you have .....

    Also when keeping roms that you like on your pc or lap top be sure to make a folder on desktop called android phone and store all your good flashable roms in it :eek: :D :rolleyes::what:

  21. cool man cheers and what i flash to my phone keep a copy on computer of just the file? so anything about like sorting it out if it goes wrong what should i do ?
  22. my phone isnt locked to anything i bought it offline sim free so any network and that so i dont think theres any restrictions or anything and yeah i will put them in a folder for safe keeping :p

    No if you get ics and see problems with it you dont need to keep it just use the flash tool to down grade back to stock roms or a custom rom also try cm7. Or cm9 if made for your device cause it would put you to 236 and cm9 is ice cream and cm10 is the latest 4.1 or jelly bean.

  24. that 4.1 or jelly bean sounds good will it work for my phone ? have you seen it does it look better than ICS just want to make my phone awesome man whatevers best lmao how would i do that find it on that site or wherever and flash it through flashtool :) ?
