I don't like custom with hotfix... it shows that something is not working properly.

I will wait for a better version without hotfix...

Hi,

Assuming you have successfully ROOTed your phone...

1. to install xRecovery properly you have to make sure you copy and paste the three files using Root Explorer
a) copy all three files to SD Card
b) launch Root Explorer and select <Mount R/W> (the button is at the top)
c) copy the three files one by one into /system/bin folder

that's it...

cheers

Thumbs up

I have also upgraded to 2.3.7(v017) last week and it's all working fine.

I even downloaded a app called apps2sd with the help of which i can move the apps to sd card easily.

As of my observation, the ROM is stable and offers all the features and also offers great camera and music ( default )

Are you downloading lot of apps ? then do check those downloaded recently to see if they are causing any issues.

Hi,

"All versions will preserve your DATA partition, so don't worry about losing apps/setting"

thats Doixanh say. Its mean, you can flash v018. Its just update your data partition. If you do full wipe after flash v018, ur setting,apps will lose.

if you have any bug, try full wipe.

p/s : sory if wrong..

Question GingerDX mobile data problem

Hi gabeyong,

I installed GingerDX weeks ago.

I was quite happy with the results and I rarely found glitches with the software. Overall, the experience was great and I forgot the I am using an unofficial software for my Xperia X8. Great job!

But one problem bugs me. It is about my internet connection through my mobile network.

My Carrier is Globe Telecom, and I happened to call (customer service) them for about 5-8 times by now, and they manually configured my internet account for my phone. All the APN and necessary information has been configured, and my simcard is ready to be used for the internet. I have extra load (I'm using prepaid); but I can't connect to the internet. My "Data Enabled" is checked and so is the Power Control icon on my homescreen.

Globe said that it would be a problem in my phone and not from theirs.

I'm just asking...how can I fix this kind of problem. I always restart my phone and it does nothing. The E logo (with the arrows pointing up and down) doesn't appear in the notification area, even though I am getting a decent phone signal and clicking on the browser.

Please help me. Please. Thank you!

@se_kaitou26

I have also upgraded to gingerdx v17 ( 2.3.7 ) 3 weeks back and my phone works great.

But i have faced this interenet problem intermittently and then it works fine again.

Internet is connecting for me at home through wifi ( wireless router ) and also mobile network.

Not had a chance to try on an wifi unsecured network outside.

Gabe , thanks for the clarification between GingerDx and GingerXperia, just checking if you have any info on this.

Comparing the GingerDx (v17,V18,V19 )with GingerXperia( whatever the latest versions), which one is very stable and has lot of features ( sorry i know the list is exhaustible , but till )

Would you suggest to upgrade the GingerDx v17 to GingerXperia , if the latter is very good ?

Waiting for your valuable feedback

Cheers

Hi,

After using both GingerXperia and GingerDX for a while
I can't say which is better... I am currently using GingerXperia v10
I experience better battery life with it.

GingerDX is getting too complicated for me with the Linux Kernel which may be experimental at the moment.

cheers

Thanks for the info Gabe,

I understand that you would be only running a stable version ( gingerXperia v10 ) as you have seen GingerDx too.

So, if i am planning order to upgrade to GingerXperia v10 from GingerDx v17, what are the brief steps and relevant links(download ROM) that you could help with.

Cheers and thanks in advance .

Hi,

You have to flash Linux Kernel to get "fake" multi-touch.
SONY Xperia X8 is hardware limited to a single touch LCD screen

You can use titanium Backup to backup all your apps and restore after you change roms.

why?? please answer if you know and give me solution
the so-called "multi-touch" functionality is moved to Linux DX Kernel
you have to flash Linux DX Kernel if you want fake "multi-touch"

Hi, gabe..
reconfirm the steps with you one more time....

1) Update the baseband from 006 to 015
1) Root
2) install xRecovery (copy & paste 3 files into /system/bin)
3) download custom rom to SD card
4) use xRecovery to flash custom rom


but if i wan to flash the rom v018.. then the step is..
1) Update the baseband from 006 to 015
2) Root
3) install xRecovery (copy & paste 3 files into /system/bin)
4) download ClockworkMod Recovery
5) flash the ClockworkMod Recovery zip file using xRecovery
6) download [V018 ROM] GingerDX 2.3 rom to SD card
7) use ClockworkMod to flash the [V018 ROM] GingerDX 2.3 rom NOT using xRecovery to flash..

Am I right? or I got miss out some step??

Hi,

Just follow the same steps...
copy ROM to SD Card
use CWM to flash.
Since you are using the same CM7 ROM you do not need to reset.

cheers

hi,

if you are happy with v17 stick with it...
usually only small tweaks are made with subsequent updates.

If you get "(bad) installation aborted" error while install from zip file, rename the ROM file to "update.zip" and sign it using this method.

And it works.

I have v 0.17 as well. I find it amazing. There's just one thing I'm not happy with: the sound with headphones. I find it too low. Is it just me?

Post The most stable rom for X8?

Hello fellows!

From your experience, what's the most stable rom for the X8 with everything including camera functional?

I'm thinking of buying the phone (it's old I know, but I'm budget-constrained ) and really don't want to be stuck with SE's eclair forever, but I'm concerned abt running into a lot of trouble with custom roms, being a newbie to Android.

Gabe, you seem to be something of an expert in this field, so maybe you have some good ideas?

Thanks!

Hi,

I am no expert. I have been hacking my Xperia X8 thru trial and error ever since I bought the X8. I have been using my Xperia X8 for about 11 months now. I bought the Xperia X8 because I knew there was custom rom software support for it beyond Android Eclair 2.1.1 (2.1.1 is really primitive stuff).

I would highly recommend the Xperia X8 E15i to you (not all Xperia X8 are the same - E15a models are fussy and need baseband mods) because it is easy to mod and almost impossible to "brick" (unless you have a hardware problem).

I am currently using GingerXperia V13 on my Xperia X8. I didn't like the newer versions as it runs better with custom kernels.

I know some devs over at XDA Developers are now developing a custom Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 for the Xperia X8. I hope they will be successful.

cheers

Thanks Gabe That tip about E15i is useful..I'm assuming this will be specified on a box label.

hi,

if you are playing games on your Xperia X8 it is recommended to flash LinuxDX kernel by Doxianh.

so check it out here <--- here


after you flash the custom kernel you can play the majority of the popular games (highly recommended). but be warned you might brick your phone if you do this wrongly.

cheers
