[ROM] MiniCM7-2.0.5a + MiniCM6-1.0.2 port for the X8 update for xperia x8 (3mp camera)

I did NOT make this ROM I just modified nobodyAtall’s 2.2.1 CM-6.1.3 ROM and nobodyAtall’s 2.3.5 CM-7.1-Pre ROM to work better with the X8 (and fixed WiFi and compass for the X8.)

After I flashed this ROM my phone does not boot, why?
Take out the battery and boot to CWM-Recovery and do a full wipe, if you cant boot to CWM-Recovery try the next step.

I bricked my phone, help me!
Remove your battery and put it back and use Flashtool to flash this (2.1.1.A.0.6 Nordic firmware with latest SE kernel and baseband).

I don’t like the miniCM theme, how can I change it?
You can change theme with the app theme chooser.

Does it include real dual touch?
No it is not real dual touch but it works fine for pinch-zooming.

Why doesn’t WiFi work for me?
Try to delete all remembered networks or delete /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf, if that does not work try a full wipe.

How can I change the keyboard?
Open the SMS-app and hold the “Type to compose” and select input method and select another keyboard.

Dual touch does not work.
Download the dualtouch module from here and extract it and overwite the x8gesture with the .ko file.

If you like this ROM feel free to donate to nobodyAtall.
