    It may and may not you have to see if its a rom made for it and if not they working on it . But lets take it slow try those out and when you learn enough u can try to make your own roms...:eek::rolleyes::what:

    Well if you wipe your phone clean you may wipe sd card clean now you in clockworkmod with out anything to flash ... remember the sd card is clean and the phone is on and in flash mode ...the only way to put a rom on the phone is through the sd card so u can flash ..... so you power off the phone by pulling the battery and next you pull your sd card out place in the adapter and put it into the sd slot on your laptop .....

    FlashTool can only be used to flash stock ROMs .
    Rooting is not needed for using flashtool .

    There are two types of CWM recoveries depending upon the status of Bootloader (Sony phones by default dont have a separate recovery partition )
    Via custom Kernel(unlocked BL) or via chargemon nAA mod (locked BL)

    this is the updated ROM list

    [WIP] ROM List For All Devices/Firmwares - xda-developers

    R800i is GSM device so dont flash CDMA ROM .

    and you have better chance of getting reply if this thread is in Xperia play section (or XDA )

    Well someone told me i could flash a rom and kernel if i had both with the flash tool . So the flash tool is only to downgrade back to stock roms .or to place just stock roms of choice back on the sony xperia ..

    usually flashtool is primarily used to flash ftf files via flash mode .
    ftf files are SEUS upgrade/repair dumps .

    you can also use it to install kernels via fastboot mode .
    But If you are rooting ,it's better to learn fastboot commands .

    Custom ROMs are installed by CWM only .

    He said cwm didn't work on his phone so i told him he had to reflash to get the recovery .

  17. i have an unlocked bootloader but i flashed a stock rom with flashtool i think build number now ends in .62 but now i cant root and cwm wont install on my phone so i dont no how to install custom kernels or roms really cos you need cwm and not sure bowt fastbooting and stuff its not really clear on xda ive read loads but dont really get a simple way to do it but i cant root again now tried flashtool superoneclick and doomlords but they wont root now lol

    As you see what he told me that you can only flash stock with the flash tool and you don't need to be rooted

    Also as you see he left you some goodies for you some roms and basic directions you need to drop some thanks on him and he told you about the app to install that can unlock the bl which is good
  20. yeah but i dont want to install a stock rom unless i can install doomlords advanced stock rom lol i dont no how to install kernel or rom with the methods described like in fastboot folders and stuff theres no simple way lol

    Check to see if the bl are unlocked and try to install the recovery you may need the app cause it may be hard to unlock try both methods
  22. i have unlocked bootloader ive tried a few times n it says its already unlocked i have read a tutorial for using flashtool for kernals and stock things understand more now if i install a kernal with cwm or recovery in it then i should be able to install the corisponding roms? because cwm wont manually install but i think its included in some kernels ?

    It might not be you it may be the phone also cause you brought the device on line they may have had something already on it ... and as i said that play 800i . I always had a xperia 10 no game console like that ...if u think about it the 800i already has a rom and emulators .

    Maybe flash the stock rom back to the phone and try and restart maybe you missed something the first time you rooted

    .62 is Patched system .It cant be rooted w/o custom kernel
    .42 and .58 are can be easily manipulated using doomlord's rooting method (I prefer .58 but some prefer .42)

    As I said ,for unlocked Bootloaders custom kernels come with CWM in kernel itself ..
    For Locked BL's you use X-parts Recovery ..

    Fastboot is not meant to be easy because it can screw your device hard ..

    You have to start with flashing a custom kernel .

    if you are going to start to modify device ,start with CyanogenMod
