    Hey suhel, can I do the same thing as deleting the stock apps in 2.1? And do you mind listing out what are the app most likely delete. And is there any harm of doing so ?

    Thanks

    I havent updated my phone yet and so I havent done rooting yet..

    stock apps I've deleted are roadsync & all the 4games
    rest of the applications are quite useful and i would not advise you to delete any application atleast any google application..

    anyways if you use titanium backup u can always get them back

    and if worse you havent backed up

    you can connect your phone to pc and use pc companion to repair your phone as simple as that

    You may download No Lock from market. Just 1 press and you're good to go. As for the another one I'm not so sure cause I havent got my X8 yet :)

    You don't mention what location you are in and what carrier. The market is not available in certain locations but why you should have it and it then dissappear I don't know.

    im here in middle east. i bought the x8 1.6 and found out there's no android market. so i installed it by root. then when i updated to 2.1 the android market was gone again.
    I already have the market.apk, im just waiting for the Root for X8 2.1

    wait for the 2.1 root or else what you can do is..

    switch back to 1.6 by reading this XDA tutorial

    Going back to 1.6 - xda-developers

    root your phone

    and than change your country code and update using this tutorial

    Nice guide suhel28. Let me ask something, which do u preferred Xperia x8 1.6 (Rooted) or Xperia x8 2.1 (Unrooted)? Sorry for my curious question.

    2.1 would be my choice, for one simple reason. the improved WEB BROWSER tis really cool :)
