Hi,

Whilst waiting for ICS 4.0+ to be ported to the Xperia X8, I thought you guys might want to try another fast and stable Gingerbread ROM. I have been using this ROM for a few weeks now, I must say this ROM is slick, fast, stable and light on battery usage.

This is a new Gingerbread 2.3 port is based on GingerXperia v22 by xperiafan13, modified by kopbem37. It incorporates fully working SONY Bravia Engine and xLoud modules on stock kernel.

PREREQUISITES <-- IMPORTANT!!!

METHOD
A) BACKUP STOCK ANDROID ECLAIR 2.1.1
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 CUSTOM ROM
Step 2: Download GingerFast v2 ROM
- <mount> your Xpedia X8 and copy this file <gingerfast v.2.zip> into SD card
- <unmount> and shutdown your Xpedia X8

C) CUSTOM ROM INSTALL
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)>
- <select><wipe cache partition>
- scroll down and hit <install custom zip>
- select <gingerfast v.3.zip> from your SD card & hit <yes>
- xRecovery will start to install the 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

hi gabe,

i have installed gingerxperia v23 using xrecovery, but it seems my battery drains faster than the original stock eclair. now i am thinking of going for gingerfast v2. should i flash the stock eclair and then flash the gingerfast or can i flash it with existing gingerxperia v23.

also kernel version is blank after installing gingerxperia v23 when you check in settings>about phone> and android version says 2.3.7

HI Gabeyong,

I recently installed gingerfast v2 on my x8, This is the first time I am using any custom ROM and i am really happy till now.

Although I have few issues on which you may be able to help..

1. Not able to add any account for sync in account & sync apart from the default email client which came with the ROM which is little bit crappy to use and i really want to use the gmail clien from google.

2. Not able to sync my contacts with facebook frnds.. I had previously many contacts synced with facebook before and now they are not coming.

Please tell me if i am doing anything wrong or should i try any different custom rom..

thnx in advance

PS: i already installed facebook and gmail apps from the market and they are working fine individually but are not automatically syncing.

Try doing a factory restore. If that dont help reinstall the rom and do a factory restore in xRecovery before you boot the first time. I used that rom for a little bit. It was buggy. But over all it was ok. Alot better with some tweaks.

Hi,

GingerFast V2 is based on GingerXperia V22+SONY Bravia Engine and xLoud.
If you decide to change...

you need to do...
factory reset full wipe
wipe cache partition
wipe battery stats

flash GingerDX v24 ROM instead

cheers

Mean that GingerFast V2 is modeled on the system GingerXperia V22 with some modifications Is this what you mean You can see that good GingerXperia V23 the best it can be used Or scroll down the best system GingerFast V2 Please give me the advantage of these systems

Hi gabeyong,

As I am new to custom ROMs i have a small query...I have currently gingerfast v2 installed on my phone and want to upgrade to v3..so now I have to just flash the new ROM on current one or should i do all the steps again i.e.

factory reset full wipe
wipe cache partition
wipe battery stats

and then flash the rom

In case i have to use the second option will the messages and current contact list will be erased too?? if yes, what is the method for retaining them?

Thnx in advance

Hi,

It is quite safe to just flash and not do a factory reset and the rest of the stuff.
I am quite sure you will retain your messages and other stuff.

Hi,

I tried <X8 Shakira E15i_2.1.1.A.0.6_generic.ftf> and got 3G working.
I am not sure about E15a_X8a_2.1.1.A.0.6_Baseband_015.7z
Is your phone E15a or E15i?
Mine is E15i

Hi,

To do a factory reset...
- shut down phone (wait 5 seconds)
- power up phone and when you see the words "SONY ERICSSON" appear press the <back> button a few times.
- then hit your <volume> buttons to look for <factory reset (full wipe)> hit the home button.
- after that reboot phone

cheers

Hi,

This version custom roms does not appear to support photos for contacts.
Have you looked at third party apps like GO Contacts EX and GO Contact Widgets?
It is free on Google Play.

Hey Gabe...
It's the sexiest x8 ROM yet..but im getting loads of FC's. Any advice?
Did a factory wipe, wiped everything really. Did fix permissions in ROM manager. Anything else I can do?
I am customising my friends X8 and need to return it tomorrow, so i need a solution fast! This, is the only ROM i would choose other than ClockWorkMod latest...and i have NEVER preferred another ROM!
Please...a solution! Thanks...

After two whole days of trying to upgrade my phone, from the very beginning learning how to root phone, about xrecovery, following instructions, and resetting my phone back to éclair countless times. I finally managed to install the GingerFast v3 on my phone.
Just when I was about to feel today was not a waste, I find that my wifi cannot connect to my home wifi, it keeps connecting, scanning, disconnecting.......
If there's no solution to this problem, I will have to admit this entire day futile, and reset my phone back to éclair again...I'm about to give this up altogether.

Thanks for the reply. I'm still contemplating whether or not it's worth all the work. Since I've already reset it back to éclair.

By the way, what exactly is "stock kernel"? Is it the original kernel of éclair?

Cheers.

Hi,

Yes, Stock Kernel is the original kernel by SONY Ericsson.
There sare lots of custom kernels out there to flash for the X8.
And some custom roms are developed to run with custom kernels.

I installed Gingerfast v2, instead of v3. And the Wifi is working now.
So I think the Wifi setting in v3 has bugs.

Cheers.

Hi,

You just do what you did the first time.
1) download custom rom and copy to sd card
2) reboot and launch recovery app
3) factory reset and clear cache using recovery app
4) install custom rom using recovery app
5) reboot phone

cheers
