    Hi,

    I just did this mod for my Xperia X8 running CM7-J005 ROM and it works!

    So if you guys want IEEE 802.11N on your Xperia X8 hit the link.

    [MOD] Faster WIFI for X8 - N standard enabling <-- here

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

    Method:

    1. <Launch><Root Explorer>

    2. go to /system/etc/firmaware <check> that you have the following files:
    - fm_rx_init_1273.2.bts
    - fm_tx_init_1273.2.bts
    - fmc_init_1273.2.bts

    3. go to /system/etc/wifi and using Root Explorer <copy><tiwlan.ini> and <paste> to root of SD Card

    4a. use USB Cable <mount><copy><tiwlan.ini> file from SD Card to desktop
    4b. rename <tiwlan.ini> file on SD Card to <tiwlan.ini.1>

    5a. do the necessary modifications according to Graveir's post @ XDA-Developers using NOTEPAD --> <Save> the mods to <tiwlan.ini> file on the PC desktop
    5b. there are reports saying that "adhoc" mod is not working so I am not recommending it


    6a. use USB Cable <mount><copy> modded <tiwlan.ini> file from desktop to SD Card
    6b. <unmount> Xperia X8

    7. <Launch><Root Explorer>

    8. go to SD Card <copy><tiwlan.ini> and <paste><replace> to /system/etc/wifi

    9. Reboot

    And that's it... say goodbye to 802.11G and enjoy your 802.11N wifi!

    cheers :)

    Yea, but the improved battery drain is a big minus for this :(

    [Updated after 2 days of use]

    So far so good. I see improvement in the speed of my wifi connection (65Mbs @ 2.4Ghz) no significant battery drain issues.

    24 hours battery life - moderate usage sms, emails, phone calls, media player on the train: 3G, Wifi, Live wallpaper and 3 widgets on homescreen enabled.

    Highly recommended mod!!

    cheers :)
