    What do you mean by "manage the ROM"?

    well you can do some things by using adb which basically establishes communication to the phone by using a command window on your pc. it really depends on what you want to do.

    can you be more specific on what you are looking for or want to do on your phone via your pc?

    The trouble is that this stuff depends on the phone - ROM Manager itself is a perfect example of that, as it works on some handsets, causes problems on others, and is lethal on some. PC-based flashing tools that work for one manufacturer won't work for another, so there won't be a universal solution.

    If you can't install a custom recovery (which would let you just reflash the ROM) then you need device-specific help to reflash the phone. I think the best bet would be if we move this thread to X8 All Things Root.

    ADB is the "android debug bridge". It's part of the software development kit.

    What it does is it allows you do push files to the phone, copy files from, perform a set of linux shell commands on the phone, all over usb. So if your problem is that you removed a vital file, you have a copy of that file, and you could get adb running, then you could in principle push the file to the phone via adb.

    Why do I say "in principle"? Because you need the adb_daemon running on your phone for this to be possible. When running android this means enabling usb debugging. If you can't get into android, most custom recoveries will also do this, so you can run adb if the phone is in a custom recovery (but not, in my experience, the stock recovery that comes with the phone). But if part of your problem is that you haven't been able to install a custom recovery that might not help you (and if you had a custom recovery there are other ways of fixing it).

    Edit: Just seen in another thread that you have formatted your phone's storage. Which storage partitions? If it was a formatting then I don't think adb is your answer, as it's not a matter of installing individual files to fix that.

    What did you actually format?

    I think you either need to get xrecovery installed again, or possibly reflash the phone completely with stock software and start again. But I don't know Sony Ericsson androids, so have no idea how to do either for this handset. That's why I moved the thread, in the hope that someone who does know this stuff will find it (and maybe be able to offer other solutions?).

    I formated from factory _:/

    Not sure I understand that.

    A factory data reset would erase all user apps and data, but would not generally stop a phone booting (though I've heard of some specific models where after rooting you need to be careful). Of course if something vital had been moved from /system to /data that would be a different matter.

    But otherwise I don't know what "formatted from factory" means. Could you explain exactly what you did? Don't worry about giving too much detail, much better than too little. As I say, I don't know this phone, so may well be unable to help, but the information may help somebody else who does know.

    ok sry, I will explain everything.

    I had android 2.1.1 on my xperia x8, but it was giving me some problems on sms etc.
    So i decided to install android 2.3.7, on my phone..
    I searched on forums and saw tuturials.. There I saw how to do that update.
    I folowed all the steps but the finall one (the install) it was giving me an error, so I decided to change that last process and do it another way... Apperently it was installing, but when my phone rebooted, after install, it stooped at gingerbread logo.... So I decided to do "factory reset (full wipe)", on xrecovery, and the phone after that just didnt boot and now I cannot acces to xrecovery anymore.

    so you have recovery that is good. do you have a nandroid backup? if so you can just restore it from there. if not (i'm not familiar with this recovery or your phone) maybe in the advanced options there should be an option to mount the usb as storage and then you can just transfer a custom rom of your choice.

    just remember as long as you have recovery you are good to go.

    yeah I've done a recovery but I dont know how can I use it without xrecovery
     
  16. ocnbrze

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    oh ok i see. so when you did a factory reset, it only wipes data. it does not do a full wipe.

    so you are saying that you can't get into recovery? (and just an fyi a nandroid backup is when you do a backup in recovery. xrecovery is just a custom recovery that is based off of clockwork mod.)

    and to be sure you do know how to get recovery? by hitting the back button right after the text 'Sony Ericsson' appears on the screen, and not when the logo appears.
