Updated : 23 March 2010 v1

9) Reboot problem because of superusers apps

It has been determined that this reboot problem happen when superusers enabled apps like root explorer, barnacle, titanium back up and etc is shutted down either by users or the android system. To avoid this, exclude these kind of apps from your task killer if you use one. Don’t exit these apps, just press home button and suspend it. The reboot will happen when android system kill this apps to free up resources. This issues is currently being investigate by the amazing developers of this rom.

And skype may be the subject of this problem as well for unknown reason.

10) Auto focus is not working

No fix yet, owain is looking into it

11) Xrecovery is not working

from terminal (linux) or console (windows) cd to platform-tools

adb pull /system/bin/chargemon %localpath%\chargemon

where localpath in the path where you want it to be on your computer
then edit the following line in chargemon

/dev/input/event0 to /dev/input/event1


adb push %localpath%\chargemon /system/bin/chargemon

12) - If You've got SD card error, you DON'T need to perform a FORMAT!

Just reboot to recovery, go to "Partition tools", plug phone to PC via USB cable, press "Mount USB storage" and delete 4 folders 
"data", "Android",".android_secure" and "Lost.dir" viola! Unmount, and reboot Your phone... 
(You can remove those folders directly in SDCARD reader in PC/Laptop, if You've got one... It's faster, and easier... ^^ ) Fix info thanks to lamenomore

13) - Data connection error

Open theme chooser, pick one and reboot. (a problem with framework thing) fix info thanks to lamenomore

15) Can’t find sd card in root explorer

sdcard is mounted to: /dev/sdcard

If you need, then you can add a symlink:
open terminalor emulator
ls /sdcard (this must not show any content!)
rm /sdcard -r
ln -s /mnt/sdcard /sdcard

then you can find your sdc card at /mnt

15) Applications stuck at SD card or phone, can’t move them

acknowledge, no fix yet

fix thx to finswimmer

16)FM radio don’t work

No fixes yet. This is due to kernel problem

17) Every buttons wake the phone (draining battery due to accidental presses)

that’s quite easy to change. use root explorer to go to /system/usr/keylayout and open shakira_keypad.kl and x10mini-keypad.kl with text editor.
Change the lines in both files:
key 158 BACK Wake_DROPPED
key 139 MENU Wake_DROPPED

key 139 MENU
key 102 HOME

  1. I download v5 and
    When i turning wifi on
    Its just reboot, i did that 5 times and its just reboot again?

    What happen?

    • Try clean dalvik cache, if don’t work, full wipe, if don’t work, reflash the rom, if don’t work, be sure to use the firmware that owain gave you

  2. Ok thanks

    But what is reflash the rom and
    What you mean “firmware that owain gave you?”

    • In the v1 download link, there’s a flashtool attach with previous firmware that would work smoother

    • Later, when I get a new that damn mini CD for my videocam. My old one is lost. Part of reason I have to put a halt to my plan on recording a hand on with the new cyanogen 6

  3. HI All

    i’m running mod7 in my xperia x10 mini,
    my superb 5MP camera doesnt work.any help will be appreciated.

    • again, camera is still working in low quality for gingerbread. It’s not a bug, it’s just a thing in the list of things that the dev is working on. Just be patient

  6. hello im running v15 in mini pro everything seems very good but 2 issuess:1.when i am going to search in android market there always no results.And 2:when taking a picture doesnt store it

  7. What is the best way to upgrade an SD card?

    I’ve read a lot of different posts about what the best way to do this is. Some say just copy and paste, some say you need to go into recovery mode and Format the SD to Fat32+ext2+swap first and then convert ext2 to ext3, and some say to use Titanium Backup, and there are other opinions too.

    I’m really quite happy with the way the phone is set up at the moment and don’t want to mess things up. I’m running a rooted SonyEriccson X10 mini, with cyanogen mod 7, and clockwork mod. Some of the apps have been moved to the SD card.

    Can anyone tell me the current best method?
