    Hi, first i want to say many thanks for bringing Gingerbread to my Xperia X8. Also thanks for the nice tutorial! It was very helpful for me!!! But a few questions are open after the update to GingerXperia_V8... Can i delete all empty folders on my device and sdcard? Many Folders are named with a number followed by a space an then the folder name. But most of them are empty?! And further: Can you please tell me how to delete the f***ing Facebook App and optionally others?! Were are the System Apps located? Thanks in advance! PS: Will there be a full localized System for German language (maybe in GingerXperia_V9)?

    first i'd like to thank you, this rom really has boosted my phones overall speed and usability.

    the net thing is, ive had this (v8) for about 5 days, and i've had an strange situation at sometimes when this really high volume white noise sounds and no volume control can make it quieter and the only way to stop it is rebooting the phone. the fisrt time it happened was when i was getting a phone call, i used the volume button to silence it but not hang it, and when the incoming call ended, the noise started playing, other time i was changing the sound from vibration to full volume with the volume button and got the sound, the next time i got it was this morning, i set up an alarm to wake me last night, and left the phone on silence (vibrate mode) and when the alarm went off, i got the alarm sound and a few seconds later the noise again. do you know what could be causing it?:confused:

    another thing, i changed my ringtone to sound like digital phone, today i noticed that when i receive a call, it sounds only once and then just keeps on vibrating instead of also looping the sound as a normal sound would..

    and third, i was wondering about the home layout... i was expecting to get the shortcuts bar at the bottom of the screen as the theme preview shows, but instead i have the 4 corners shortcuts as in eclair, how can i change this cause i like it more the "new" layout instead.

    sorry if my post is too long :eek:

    I am glad that you are happy with the custom rom.
    I don't know about the "white noise" you are experiencing on the phone.
    I have been using this custom rom for a few weeks now and I have not experienced any problems.

    I know you can customise the ring tones by copying a .ogg ringtone into the system folder

    As for the homescreen you can use a launcher like LauncherPro. Once you install it you just have to reboot and you will be asked which launcher to use. Just select the launcher you want and set it to default. Hope that helps.

    cheers :)

    I just installed the V8 ROM on my X8. Looks well and great but. If I download apps from the market my phone hangs when it starts installing. I have to remove my battery and boot the phone. Anyone else has this problem?
    I hope you guys can help me out.

    You can use clockworkMod Recovery or xRecovery to do a back up.

    1. shutdown and reboot you phone
    2. when you see the words SONY Ericsson <hit> the back button multiple times
    3. in xRecovery or ClockworkMod Recovery <hit> the backup / restore then <hit><backup>

    Once backup is done... you can find the backup (folder) in xRecovery or ClockworkMod Recovery folder

    to restore... it is the same process, except in reverse.
    1. shutdown and reboot you phone
    2. when you see the words SONY Ericsson <hit> the back button multiple times
    3. in xRecovery or ClockworkMod Recovery <hit> the backup / restore then <hit><restore>

    Reboot once restore is done...

    cheers :)

    Is it right when i do this i have the old System or not?
    By the instroduction is to read

    Well it was fun visiting and touring the Gingerbread 2.3.5 ROM, now let's go back to Eclair 2.1.1

    D) RESTORING THE Official Android Eclair 2.1.1 ROM

    Step 4: Reinstalling your original Eclair 2.1.1 ROM
    - <shutdown> wait 5 seconds <reboot> Xpedia X8
    - when you see the words [Sony Ericsson] on the phone screen -> start pressing the back button on your phone multiple times and you will enter the xRecovery Menu.
    - <select><factory reset (full wipe)>
    - scroll down and hit <backup/restore><restore>
    - you should see your original 2.1 backup ROM
    - <select> <2011-10-xx.xx.xx.xx.ROM><restore> [it should look something like 2011-05-]
    - xRecovery will start to install the original 2.1.1 ROM [the ROM you've backed up in Step 1] from your phone's SD Card.
    - when it is done xRecovey will go back to the startup menu
    - <click><reboot>

    And you are back to where you have started - Xperia X8 Android Eclair 2.1.1 <--

    There's no way I can install games like Sims 3 and Need For Speed on GingerXperiaV10? Thanks.

    Hey, I really like what you do but I didn't like the GingerXperiaV10 style and a lot of apps are missing and it's too bad.. I do not mean to be rude but you can improve the quality of the video camera? I mean The video quality is bad and very low volume compared to Version 2.1 and the quality photos isn't very pretty. And why games like Sims 3 and need for speed does not work? Sorry if I did not express myself well. My English is not good.
