    Hi, You only need one FAT32 partition for the new Gingerbread ROM.
    If you use a third party app do not name your newly formatted partition.
    After you re-partition you need to format using the X8 just to be safe.

    cheers :)

    k. thanks for the valuable replies...

    i did it and it works great... but im not satisfied with the Rom.. bit unstable..

    so, i decided to go back to floyo 0.15... xrecovery backup n restore
    now my xrecovery says md5 mismatch... really annoying me.

    what to do..

    Hi,

    a) I have just updated my post above for stability for CM7-X8-J005 if you wanna give it another try.

    b) you have a corrupted froyo-0.15 file. (i) Download again from developer's website (ii) Unzip to desktop and check unzip logs for issues during unzip.

    Note: turn off your <usb debugging> when you are copying the files to your phone.

    cheers :)

    Hi all,

    I agree with gabeyong that the J005 is the best rom.
    (I have tried floyo-15 but I think J005 is far better).

    I have also tried v006a (is also good with less apps and options that J005).

    Bluetooth does not work in all 2.3.3 (j005 and v006a) (in floyo is OK) - this problem has also been reported by others in Xda forums.

    So, I propose to focus on one version (possibly j005) try to fix the bugs and then in will be the perfect solution for X8.

    Cheers

    sorry, if I'm asking. After updating to this gingerbread ROM, my phone will stay rooted?

    HI,

    Yes, Rooted+xRecovery [JIT option can be enabled]
    ...but with Quadrant scored around 1000, I didn't bother to enable JIT.

    Hi gabeyong, you really helped me a lot, and i was able to install 2.3 custom ROM on my xperia...
    There is just one little thing i would like to know, so if u can please answer...
    Is there any way to import multitouch on my xperia x8 with 2.3 system...

    Hey,

    There is no multi-touch on the Xperia X8
    It has a single touch - TFT capacitive touchscreen.
    There is no software option to enable multi-touch because it is hardware limited.

    Sorry for the bad news dude....


    cheers :)


    p/s both Froyo 2.2 and Gingerbread 2.3 supports multi-touch if you have a phone with a multi-touch screen.

    Hi. I want to be clear about this, after reading racht's post, I'm getting confuse with multitouch thingy.

    Quoted from racht @ xda

    He sounds like multitouch is possible, because its related with its kernel. Not the touchscreen instead. just askin, because I can't get rid of this multitouch for x8 out from my mind !

    hi all

    hi gabeyong,
    im now running 2.3.3 without any trouble.. its superb..

    i hv a strange question.. im having a backup of 2.2 floyo with app2sd n all apps installed on sd card, ( probably they wud be on ext2 ).
    i formated the sd card in order to work with 2.3.3 nw if i revert back to 2.2 do i need to again go for partitioning my sdcard n will that backup installs all my apps again on sdcard???

    Hi,

    That is a good question.
    And I hope the guys in this forum can help shed some light as well.

    I hope you made a backup of your data in your 2nd ext2 partition.
    I don't think xRecovery will write data back onto the 2nd partition.

    I think the correct method is to re-partition your SD card and copy manually all the data back into the ext2 partition and then restore with xRecovery back to 2.2.

    Cheers :)

    You LL see "ghosts" of your apps but most of them will need re installation! ;-)

    Btw,since this 005 ROM is stable,
    do you guys think we could use an update.zip to make the Bluetooth work in the immediate future?
    I d hate to set up the x8 AGAIN!!!

    Pinch zoom = multitouch? Can I play games that requires multitouch with this? Or does it for zoom purpose only? sorry noob question. :p
  23. Blitzkri3g

    Single-touch pinch zoom.
    Cannot do much more since Xperia X8 has a single-touch Capacitive Screen

    cheers :)

    BTW,I downloaded the 006 version last night which has working Bt and WiFi but got confused by the files in the zip. Google Apps, Live wallpapers and a separate update.zi p file?! Why all these files?
    Seems a hassle to install compared to 005 ROM...
