Steps you had already given
1.copy the rom to sd card
2.flash it with cwm

Thanks in advance.
I can say it's a really great rom for our little android, it run smooth and have a good battery life.

Hi Suninside,

From which version of ROM you upgraded to Gingerxperiav19 ? I am currently having Gingerdxv17

Can you brief the steps here ( although it is given earlier by gabe and others), i would like to hear from you(if possible) as you have upgraded it recently and there might be some steps not needed or essentially needed.

It will also be useful to others.

In this weekend, as Gabe and others recommended, wanted to test out the Gingerxperia v19, I was already on GingerDxv17, I was sceptic whether i could simply do the v19 upgrade without big work, anyway took courage.
The following are the steps i followed
1.Took CWM Backup of my phone and transferred it to the pc
2.Took Contact backup and copied to pc
3.downloaded the v19 rom(104MB) from the link given here(Istpage) by Gabe, my v17 is only 84MB in size.
4.copied it from pc to sd card
5.rebooted phone to cwm -> install custom zip -> pointed to v19.zip
took 5 mins to finish everything and i rebooted the phone.
Did not do <factory reset> full wipe or whatever
6. after install rebooted the phone found the gingerxperia logo
7.Checked and found that the menus and the icons were all similar to the stock(2.1) interface, I wondered for a minute if i had gone to 2.1
as there was no major change except walkman,walkmate, a few dev apps.

I tried to tweak some interface settings and the phone hanged, so i had to take the battery out and put it again.
Once it came up , i was able to connect to wifi, mobile data and seems like it had all the things necessary.
On sunday i did a battery charge ( below 20% ) to full charge and by sunday evening, it dropped 30% , i switched it off as usual in the night and monday morning, it has discharged another 20% :-(
I feel the phone has slowed now ( not sure if that is because of the v19 )

My observation
1. I feel the gingerdxv17 has far better batterylife and superb interface compared to the gingerxperiav19 which is following the stock rom interface.

I would like to have this for a week and then probably will want to go back to v17.

I believe it would be again straightforward download v17 ( oh i already have it ) and do custom install zip from cwm.

Cheers to everyone and Have a great christmans and new year.

Hi,

Android applications running in the background does not use a lot of battery.
You cannot kill all running apps as some run services that are required for the phone to function properly.

Alternatively install Titanium Backup to freezing Apps that you do not use but are constantly running in the background.

The best way to preserve battery life is to charge fully and use your phone normally for a day and check your battery usage in <settings> to see what is the battery consumption and try to adjust using that stats.

The common way is as follows:
1) Display screen set to lowest brightness settings
2) Switch off - Wifi, GPS and 3G
3) Turn off all notifications (e.g. Facebook, Twitter and Gmail Notifications)
4) Freeze apps that you don't use (e.g. What's App Messenger)

cheers

Hi,

Whenever I change ROM I usually format my SD Card.
Old data on the SD Card might cause problems with the newer ROM

example: if old data is present in /sd card/Android folder & /sd card .Android_secure folder - Android Market app stops working or starts but eventually stalls and forced close. Also all installed apps on your SD Card will not work as well.

Walkman scans your SD Card's media folder for music mp3 files so there might be issues with your SD Card.

cheers

I have the same problem with my 8GB SD card. I tried formatting the card and erase option from the phone, still not working.

I put my 4GB SD card and it works!

@gabeyong:
Is there any limitation on the size of SD Card?
My SD cards both use FAT32 btw.

Thanks for your work.

Hi,

I don't know much about W8.

Did you do a factory reset full wipe before you install the rom?
Always do a factory reset full wipe & wipe cache partition when you install a new rom. And reformat your sd card after you install a new rom. Hope that helps.

cheers

Hi,

If you are using Froyo or Gingerbread the max SD Card support is 32GB.
I think your 8GB SD Card is corrupted (happened to me once )
You might want to re-partition and reformat to FAT32

No my 8GB sd card is fine, I can use it on my other devices.
And I think this has been broken since v14.
Also the Location (GPS, WIFI) functionality is not working either.
It's almost perfect but unfortunately the GPS functionality is a deal-breaker for me. I'm thinking of going back to SE original ROM.
Thanks.

Hi,

Yes, your contacts are linked to the Google gmail account you have signed in.
Yes, you can sign out and not use your Google Gmail account... that really means that you have no access to Google Mail, Contacts and Calendar services from your Google Account (i.e stand alone phone).

I am really happy with the upgrade, my phone is so much faster!!!
The only thing I'm having a problem with, is linking Facebook, Linkedin, etc to my contacts. I click <add account> they are all there, but when I click eg.<Facebook>, it goes back, but only my Google account is there.
Any ideas??

Hey Gabe,
First, I would like to offer you a BIG thank you for this fantastic ROM. However, I seem to have run unto some difficulties, and would really like your help... (I am using v14 presently).

I am not sure if others have noticed, but I am not able to change my battery status style to "percentage". Also, I am unable to see any album art as well as the name of the song on my lockscreen when any song is playing even after enabling both in "settings".

Another thing I wish to ask you is whether uninstalling any pre-installed apps (such as the e-mail app, google voice etc) using "titanium backup" could cause me to lose any functionality in my phone, due to any app being linked to a library or something (I am just guessing, I have negligible knowledge of Android's inner workings...)

I would be really grateful if you could answer my queries. Thanks in advance.

Hi

I just recently upgraded my X8 ROM to v21b and...I have some questions here I'd like to ask...

  1. My battery drains twice as before! I had 2.1.1 Eclair on my handset before, and the battery usage is normal...but after I root and install the ROM, the battery usage is somewhat fastens up...I have tried clearing the battery stat like the first post told me, and I'm still looking forward its progress...or should I replace my battery?
  2. before, I installed Easy battery saver+task killer, with scheduling option enabled, but after I installed v21b, it seems like the app isn't working...the scheduling doesn't start, just doesn't feel like it works. should I replace it with another batt saver apps?
I really appreciate any help

P.S: I just realized that v22 has been released. If I want to upgrade my v21b to v22, is it necessary to factory reset like when I installed v21b for the first time?

Hi,

So sorry to hear that your battery is draining too quickly.
I think you can go ahead and update to V22.

I always do a factory reset full wipe before I install any custom rom.
It just helps me to remember what went wrong with the install by eliminating doubt.

btw... I am still using v14... It works fine.

cheers

v21b was great...but the batt just drained too much I can't tolerate anymore
I'm backing up now using Titanium Backup.

thx Gabe

Hi Gabe,

First of all, thank you for giving value to this wonderful phone. I have recently installed v22.

I'm just encountering a problem connecting to our company's wifi since I started using GingerXperia. Settings are: PEAP->MSCHAP, using AD account for username/password. It was working well using the original firmware.

Hope you can help me with this as I am synching my company email with this phone.

Thanks,
Ian

I reverted back to v21b. It seems I am not getting HSPDA/3G signal on the new update, only Edge. Also, the GPS is always on even though its switched off.

I just updated my x8 from v21b to v23 last night and now I have noticed a sharp decrease in battery life

I turn off my wifi / mobile data / sync / GPS at night and at work. In the last 18hrs (from midnight) my phone has dropped to 17% battery!!! The stats show that the top 3 for battery consumption were Display 39%, Mobile Standby 20% and Phone Idle 18%.

Mobile Standby & Phone Idle used to make up about 5-6% together on v21b !!!

Can anyone help me track down the cause please, or confirm the issue?

Thanks

my review on v23:

still no sign of improvement on battery life...I had 2G only mobile network, with JuiceDefender as battery management tool...but still no better than v21b or v22 I installed the other day

also, I keep on getting constant crashes from calllogplugin or so...

and to sum things up, USB tethering fails.

did I do anything wrong?

v23:can't use multitouch
v21b:too many energy used by the system
v12:so good for anything but the video recording stop in every 3 seconds
now i'm using v19, and so far so beautiful n' nice srom.
Thank You a lot of good hard job.

Hey,

since i updated to vers. 21b AND now 23, i have Problems with the Notifications. When i`m using Apps, that should give me notification when an Event arrives, it doesn`t work. For Example: When I`m using Messenger from Facebook, it gets the new Massages, but don`t show me any notification....

Hi gabeyong

i'v got some problem after installed GingerXperia v23
1. My facebook app won't sync with my contacts.
2. i got this error randomly - The application Call log extension (process com.sonyericsson.eventstream.calllogplugin)has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Everytime i need to force close and it annoyed me
3. Okay this is pretty dumb question... is multi touch aka pinch to zoom function in GingerXperia v23? Because i cannot multi touch...

Thx for reading my post and hope u can guide me a way out of this
