    Xperia Mini Pro (active) interesting in further development…

    • Ah, you were always the go to man for info on the X8. I’d really like an active but wonder if there’ll be a 2012 version coming along soon (some more months to go on my contract!)

  2. am always willing to help.

    cannot stay the same, I like to look forward and improve. x8 was good for his times
    with my new handset is this possible…

  3. what if you add “Xperia’s 2011” mini/mini pro in common issue CyanogenMod let me know what you think….

    it’s just an idea… ;)

    sorry for many comments.

    • I’ve depreciated the old pages (including common issues) and am in the process of writing new pages. I will do my best to keep up to date on the 2011 Xperia’s!
