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

nobodyAtall for the original Custom ROM

Hi,

Well... most android phones have gone from Froyo 2.2 to Gingerbread 2.3 - Xperia X8 will be stuck on Eclair 2.1.

To put it in perspective. It is like saying most computers have gone from Windows Vista to Windows 7 - Xperia X8 users are using Windows XP.

Have a look at this article from Android Community Website for the major upgrades from Froyo to Gingerbread.

ANDROID 2.3 GINGERBREAD FEATURES AND LIST OF WHAT’S NEW

But... just take note the 2.3.3 CM Hackdroid ROM is custom-recoded to be compatibile to the Xperia X8

So... A few things to note.
Limitations
1) NO Multi-touch for Xperia X8 forever [Xperia X8 has Capacitive (single touch) Screen]
2) Xperia X8 only has an Accelerometer

I don't want to list all the limitations of the Xperia X8.
It will make me want go out and buy a Nexus S

Xperia X8 is still a very good mid-size android phone.
It is still quite highly rated in most decent mobile websites.



cheers!

This >2.2 custom roms are garbage ! Nothing works perfectly, still there are reboot problems on each of them after you close an app which uses root acces -.- and also random reboots are pretty annoying to me o.O Also I heard some guys complaining about the overheating of the mobile while browsing internet via wi-fi o.O
Will take a long time to find something stable for our devices

Hi,

I agree with you, nothing will work decently on the Xperia X8 not even the Eclair 2.1.1 ROM from Sony Ericsson. The phone has a 600 MHz Qualcomm processor but its under-clocked (quadrant score = 440). So users must Root and JIT (quadrant score = 550) for a 25% increase in performance.

Begs the Question: What is wrong here? Hardware? Software?
[want a hint? (thinking outside-the-box) -> iPhone 3G (circa 2008) only has a 412 MHz processor - more on that later ]
Answer: Optimized operating software!

The >2.2? I tried the 2.2 CM Froyo 0.15 and all the earlier ROMS - they are faulty. And the hackware developers openly announce their ROM faults - too many reboots and too much battery usage etc...

BUT

I tried the latest 2.3.3-CM Legend (16 March 2011 build). Now this build is solid! (no camera and no compass) but everything else works. This build is what I am using for 2 days now... only one reboot when I tried to crash it with multiple tap access to app functions and their settings.

One has to also take into consideration that Gingerbread 2.3 is built to showcase the Nexus S and later Honeycomb 3.0 is for Android Tablets. But let's not forget that Android OS is generic, it is only purpose built (modified-to-suit) by individual mobile by phone manufacturing companies.

[Note: iOS for iPhone is considered as custom-build since iOS does not run in any other brand phones - by the way, my iPhone 3G (412 MHz) can run dual boot iOS and Android Froyo 2.2 - quadrant score = 800 (hacked by PlanetBeing-DevTeam). And I consider my newly acquired Xperia X8 [Revision 3 (circa late 2010)] as an upgrade... but I digress]

The Xperia X8's hardware is not the most advanced. In fact it is lacking a few important components:

New Technology - required
1) Multi-touch - high resolution screen (X8's captive single touch screen was invented in 1995)
2) 802.11n - with at least WEP2 (X8's 802.11g was invented in 1997)
3) Dual Camera (X8's 3.2MP Cam invented 2003)

New Technology - never intended for the Xperia X8
1) Multi-core processor (Dual-core is going to be the norm now [e.g. iPhone 5 - June 2011])
2) Three-axis Accelerometer and Three-axis Gyroscope (better user & gaming experience)
3) Inductive charging of phones [e.g. Palm]
4) OTA Sync and Streaming technologies [e.g. iPhones and Nexus S]
5) SIP Internet Calling protocol technology - (Fring/Skype/Messenger/Xbox Live)
6) NFC Near Field Communication technology - (Credit Card purchases)

X8's Android Eclair 2.1.1 software's keyboard is rubbish
And Eclair 2.1.1 is too slow in rendering movies
And Eclair 2.1.1 lags when playing games (quadrant score = 440)
And Eclair 2.1.1 does not install apps to SD Card (bummer with a X8 phone)

At the moment my X8's using Android Gingerbread 2.3.3 it's fast, stable and it's quadrant score = 1039! Woot Hoo! (Hi-5! hack developers and a sucker-punch to the big corporation).

The 2.3.3 Hackdroid ROM is currently the best alternative ROM compared to the stock SONY Eclair 2.1.1 ROM for my Xperia X8 imho

It is too bad SONY Ericsson is not developing any more software upgrades for the Xperia X8.
The Xperia X8 phone hardware is certainly capable of performing better with Gingerbread 2.3.

If there are SONY Ericsson development staff out there reading this post - listen up!
We want Official 2.3.3 for Xperia X8 coz I love using my Xperia X8 phone.

I say no more... coz I might just convince myself go out and buy a Nexus S when my contract runs out next month.

cheers

I am using 2.3.3 CM HACKDROID Legend for the past 2 days.
I am not going back to Eclair 2.1.1

Xperia X8 using the Gingerbread 2.3.3 ROM is fast and relative stable (only reboot once so far).

Caution: Camera and Compass NOT working

I don't need a compass - I use Nav & Maps when I drive
I don't need a camera - I use my Canon EOS 5D when I take pictures

Batt life is good: 50% left from - 2 albums of music play - 1 hour driving to work and back home using 3G-Nav - 1 hour gameplay -1 hour on emails - 5 hours on standby (have not re-charged my batt yet).

So far so good! Hi-5!

cheers

Sorry no camera for now.

There are efforts to resolve the camera and compass issues by others trying to port over the modules from the Xperia X10 project (J&Z and Erasmux).

But they are not as fast as racht because he is coding every night.

I am "listening" to that webpage everyday now

I will keep you guys posted on the developments.

Hi,

2.3.3 Gingerbread ROM can install all applications (that are not system installed) into SD Card. There is no longer the need for additional partitions on the SD Card.

I used a 2GB SD Card - 1 partition - set to primary - reformatted (I kept a backup on my PC).
APPS2SD and Link2SD was a work around for 2.1 ROMs which did not have the capability to install apps to SD Card. From Froyo 2.2+ ROMs onwards APPS2SD/Link2SD functions were incroporated into its operating framework - to check (after you have successfully installed 2.3.3 ROM) <click>

<settings><applications><manage applications>

just tap any application you have installed (NOT system installed) to see the following functions
<Force stop> - to force app to stop
<uninstall> - to uninstall the app
<clear data> - to clear data input from using the app
<move to phone> - to move the app to phone memory
<move to SD card> - to move app to SD Card
<clear cache> - to clear cache made by the app

you will also see system <permissions info> the app is allowed to access

Some things you MUST have BEFORE you install the ROM:
1) Rooted phone and xRecovery installed on your Xperia X8.
2) Baseband MUST be xxxxxxx15 - check <settings><About phone>
3) MUST have the latest BusyBox v1.1.7
- if not go to Android Market <install> BusyBox Installer <exit> Market
- <launch><install> BusyBox 1.1.7

QUOTE (from racht @ XDA Developers)

To install use xRecovery, busybox+xrecovery preinstalled in rom so you can restore backups after.
If upgrading from old Floyo to newer, do custom backup/restore and restore only /system partition, all your data will be preserved.

These roms REQUIRE latest baseband version xxx15
Take the new baseband and flasher from my server <here>
or just the firmware if you have the flash tool already, <here>
Check if u need update by typing "busybox uname -a", u need this (notice date) :
Linux localhost 2.6.29 #1 PREEMPT Fri Dec 17 18:35:45 2010 armv6l GNU/Linux
blagus - thanks a lot !

Thanks go to J&Z and Erasmux!
Enjoy !

Maybe I ll just have to re Flash the ROm and install apks one by one again...
Who knows?!? Maybe I ll give 2.3.2 CM HACKDROID v0.9 a try.
Seems to be less buggy judging by the user comments.
My phone is stuck in an endless hackdroid loop at start up for like 5-6 minutes now.
I guess you could say it s an epic fail in the end...

Hi,

Old ROMs do not work.
I have tried every single one on that webpage including Froyo 0.15. Hangs + Reboot too many times A lot of people says Froyo 0.15 is the most stable but my phone not stable.

If you are using the 2.2.3 CM-Legend [23:59 16 March 2011 build]

Root + xRecovery + Baseband Version - xxxxxxxxxxx15 + Busybox 1.1.7

SD Card should have 1 partition - FAT32 - Primary
If you are using an old SD Card -> recommended to re-partition -> FAT32 - 1 partition
Then copy <cm7-Legend> folder into <SD Card><xRecovery><backup>

<restore> using xRecovery
<skip setup>
<settings><privacy><factory data reset>

<reboot>

And that's it...

cheers

Default X8 latest 2.3.3 rom

Hi,

this may be the first ROM that is stable in X8.
Issues:
Video playback (tried many players - embedded player practically not working) not smooth
Bluetooth problem: It seems to be activated (icon appears) but no bluetooth device can be identified (headset can not be found either).

Also battery seems to drain fast


So please comment on the above (+possible / alternative solutions).

Hi,

I am sorry to hear that you have some problems with the 2.3.3 CM legend ROM

Video Player:
Currently the best alternative video player is VPlayer Advanced v1.0.1
It has been updated for Gingerbread 2.3
Just create a folder <video> on your SD Card and <copy> your videos to the folder.
The VPlayer Advanced app will auto scan on startup and you can then <click> the video to watch.

Oh... be sure to switch off your screen time out feature so it doe not interfere with your movie viewing pleasure.

VPlayer Advanced v1.0.1 <-- here


Bluetooth:
I don't use the bluetooth feature - I use the speaker phone function when I am driving to pick up calls. So I can't troubleshoot the blutooth function for you. Sorry.

Battery Issues:
As for the battery drain... I am not sure.
The first time I installed the 2.3.3 CM ROM my battery only lasted 1 day.
After reading the XDA forums I discovered that after the install I had to <factory reset> the phone before I can start to use the phone.

<restore> again... using xRecovery
<skip setup> go to
<settings><privacy><factory data reset>
<reboot>

So I re-installed and factory reset the phone... I have been using the phone with 2.3.3 CM Legend ROM for the past 2 days it had no problems.

My Battery lasted 1.5 days moderate use with wifi connected (games, phone calls, sms, email and movie watching) before I had to recharge.

Hope that helps

Ok,after 2-3 days trying various ROMS,I think its safe to say that the CM07 2.3.3 is still too buggy to use.
Apps2SD doesn't fully work,lots of crashes with SU apps,camera no go,random rebooted and FCs,WIFI stops working after a while etc but its really really fast.But that's it!

I m on Floyo 0.15 now.Still fast but SU still makes the ROM to reboot,plus MOVE2SD still doesn't work for me.Maybe its cost I don't have an ext3 partition on my SD anymore,but still its an issue.

The bottom line: Use Floyo if you like Android 2.2 and don't bother with any 2.3.3 ROM for now, unless you have too much time on your hands...

Hi,

i) You may have to restore the CM.ROM again... Market is pre-installed.

<extract> put <folder> into [/sdcard/xrecovery/backup] and <restore>

ii) You can change ringtone by going to <settings><sound><phone ringtone>

cheers

Hi gabeyong,
Thank you for your reply and assistance.

I have installed CM7.X8.J005 and is much better:

Battery is OK
Video Playback OK

Problems:

It reboots in some cases
Camera

And again Bluetooth does not work (OK we can live without camera but bluetooth is a communication component and is more important).

Since I am new to the forum, how and where I can address bluetooth problem (and other issues)?

Also, others state that Floyo 0.15 is still the best working solution. I have also tried to install it but I have a checksum error at xrecovery. Doess this happen because I have the latest firmware (baseband ..15) for X8 (i have the latest update from Sony ericsson).

Thank you again

Hi,

After extensively using the new ROM for a couple of days, I have solved some of the issues...

Rebooting problem:
a) Rebooting after installing applications:
b) Rebooting after moving apps to SD Card:

go to <settings><CyanogenMod settings><Application> select <Allow application moving>
go to <settings><CyanogenMod settings><Application><Install location><external>

c) Camera usage causing reboot:
go to <SD Card> create directory <100ANDRO> & <Camera> folders

d) VideoPlayer usage causing reboot:
go to <SD Card> created directory <media> & in <media> folder create a <video> folder and put all your video files in there

Current issues that I am working on:
a) Widgets installed do not work...
b) updating apps that have been installed by system ROM


I don't have any other problems - [ p/s my camera is working!!! ]

as for Bluetooth... so sorry I don't own a bluetooth device... but your bluetooth device should be v1.2 to v2.0+EDR compliant

have a look...

SONY Xperia X8 Bluetooth Support <-- here

OR

XPERIA X8 Android Development <-- here

OR

[ROM] X8 | Sense | 2.1 | 2.2 | 2.3 | xRecovery [WiP] <-- here

Hey man thanks for all the info you provide for us in the forum! :-)

So,when using the 005 ROM you don't get SU apps related reboots anymore?! Also can anyone else confirm the Bluetooth bug?!

Floyo 015 is running fine ATM.
Only bugs I had to deal with are reboots after exiting su apps.
Bluetooth,cam, wifi -> OK!
I m still reluctant to update to 233.

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.

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

HI,

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

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

Quote:
ALERT!
The guys at X10 thread have found a way to load a custom kernel !
So, our hopes for Multitouch,BFS,Overclock,etc can soon be real!
Freedom is so near!
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 !

Ok guys...

One-Finger-Gesture Pinch Zoom

XDA - X8 Gesture - One Finger Pinch Zoom

One Finger Pinch Zoom Demo working on X8

They guys at XDA have done it...
A bit of skill and a bit of practice required...

X8 Gesture - One Finger Pinch Zoom

You can download the appropriate ROM update.zip file and use xrecovery to flash.

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!!!
