Hi,

Assuming your SD card is functional (not dead)...

factory reset full wipe
Clear cache
Re-flash custom rom

Smile Which latest one to upgrade from GingerDxv017

Dear Gabe,

It's been a very long time that i upgraded to GingerDX V017 and i am much happy with it ( meaning, i am able to install and use all the features available on the phone ) Only thing is it is sluggish at times and takes time to boot and while operating internet.

However, Thought i could ask your advise for an upgrade .

Which one you would recommend me to upgrade from GingerDX v017.
Also if may pls provide the appropriate thread links..

Hi,

I have 2 Xperia X8:
I am using GingerDX v022 on one and Gingerfast v2 on the other.
Both works well. I would recommend both for everyday use.

Thumbs up Hi Gabe, you are a hero.

I upgraded from eclaire to your gingerxperia 2.3.7 ver 1. the first download it was because I was confused which one to download as there is like 23 of them, so I chose the 1st to be on the safe side ,Im a noob lol. So far I am loving it, it defo goes the same speed as the old eclair if not faster. Found some tiny issues -theme chooser has only 1 theme and nothing I can do,,-the calendar is kinda messed up. Would you recommend to download v23 and wipe all and flash the rom,or should I keep my current version also is there anyway to zave my contacts and app perhaps. Thank you

Default Problem with Wifi

Hello
i have a problem, where the WiFi will connect to the network and once disconnected it's able to connect again on the same or other networks. I know there was a way to fix this, erase a file containing the networks SSID and passwords, sort of like a text file which you find with root explorer, i just can't remember the path. Could you help me please.
Thanks in advance

Hi,

I don't know what is going on with your phone.
I recommend you re-flash your backup and go back to v22.

Hi,
I do not have a Ipro i3s Tablet so I would not know.
Did you try SuperOneClick? It might work.

Hi,

Nope. ROMs are built to specific smartphone. X8 rom is useless to Xperia Mini Pro

DISCLAIMER: Please use the info below at your own risk with no warranty of any kind.

PREREQUISITES <-- IMPORTANT!!!
1) Make sure you have Rooted and xRecovery installed on your Xperia X8.
2) Make sure you have new baseband xxxxxxx15 - check <settings><About phone>
If you don't have baseband xxxx015 your phone will end up in a boot loop
3) SONY ERICSSON Stock Kernel

If not... see the my post below:
Root, Install & Use xRecovery on Xperia X8 <-- here

AND

Using FlashTool to Root and Update Baseband 015 for X8 <-- here


INSTALL METHOD:

A) BACKUP STOCK ANDROID ECLAIR 2.1

Step 1: Make a backup copy of your Android Eclair 2.1 using xRecovery
- check that your phone's SD Card has at least 650MB of free space
[SD card free space is to hold both your phone original backup ROM and the 2.3 ROM]
- shutdown your X8 and wait 5 seconds -> <reboot> your phone.
- 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 <backup and restore><backup> from the menu

NOTE:

- This will create a backup file in your SD Card <SD/xRecovery/backup>
- After you have completed the backup using xRecovery, it will return to the menu screen.
- Now choose <reboot> - your X8 phone should restart

B) DOWNLOADING 2.3.3 ROM

Step 2: Download GingerXperia ROM
- <mount> your Xpedia X8 and copy this file <GingerXperiaV8.zip> into SD card
- <unmount> and shutdown your Xpedia X8

C) Custom install the 2.3.5 ROM

Step 3: Installing the 2.3.5 ROM on your Xpedia X8
- <boot> 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 <install custom zip>
- select <GingerXperiaV8.zip> from your SD card & hit <yes>
- xRecovery will start to install the 2.3.5 ROM on your phone.
- when it is done, xRecovey will go back to the startup menu
- <click><reboot>

Now you can start using your phone - Isn't Gingerbread 2.3.5 great!!!


DON'T WANT TO USE THE 2.3.5 ROM ANYMORE?
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 2011-05-06.21.01.23]
- 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

If you have decided to keep and use the Gingerbread 2.3.5 ROM... like I did

DO send a big THANK YOU to the developers @ XDA for their hard work building this custom 2.3.5 Gingerbread ROM

Happy new year to you.
As said earlier, I am still on GingerDXv17, Now, can you suggest which one to go for Gingerxperia Revolution v23 or to go with GingerDXv22.

Kindly also provide the links to download the GingerDXv22

this is the xda page of gingerdx. the links to download all versions of gingerdx are in the 2nd post. the steps are mentioned very clearly.

if you are already using gingerdx, it is possible that you can install the new/desired version of gingerdx rom without losing any of your data (and most of your settings) so you dont need to do a wipe from cwm recovery. i have done this while upgrading from v28 to v29 and from v29 to v30 and no data was lost, but not sure if the same works if you jump more than one version, or go back to older versions. safe bet is to take backup from cwm recovery before you attempt this, and then install custom zip straight away.

also, gingerdx was started by doixanh and developed by him till v22, after which TeamFun is developing the newer versions and the latest is v30. thought i should mention it as you said you want to upgrade to v22.

cheers!

I have installed Gingerexperia v22 on my phone which was running Gingerdx v17 earlier.
Had lot of issues to get the gingerexperiav22 working as i bricked the phone and had to send it to sony service to get it back with stock rom.
post that i installed gingerexperia v22 , but it more or less is functioning like stock rom, except i could move the apps to SD Card.
I loved the GingerDX as it was much faster .

Now i have a question, Can i upgrade it to GingerxperiaV23 without losing any data and apps that i have downloaded now ?
Is there a latest version after Gingerxperia V23 ?

I also have the same problem, the phone has slowed down at times it just crawls and seems like crashing after installing the Gingerxperiav22, with Gingerdx v17 it was excellent.
not sure if V23 is any better, as per update from tamerelturky, looks like no good.

the only way i think is to go to GingerDX, for that we'll lose all the data and settings, that's the one i am hesitating to do, otherwise i would have switched over to GingerDx.
