Xperia X8

Update : 18 March 2011 v1
This thread reserved for common issues and possible fixes for cyanogen mod 7 for Xperia X8

1) Wi-fi is not working

No, it’s not. Devs are working on it. Be patient

note : Racht’s rom is working fine

2)Games lags and some games won’t even starts (emulators)

Yes, the performance in that area is not maximized yet. Dev’s still working on it

3) Camera suck

Again, dev’s working on it.

4)Data don’t work

Go to setting/wireless and network/mobile network and enable data

If it’s still not working, check access name, make sure you get the right one.

Not working again, reflash your entire rom.

5)  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.

I will update this as time progressed.

6)Video streaming not working

Dev are working on it.

7)  Can’t find any screenshot apps that works

Use this one.

8) Battery drain problem

Full wipe via xrecovery and clear battery stat

9) Market problem, battery drain problem, app2sd problem

Full wipe via xrecovery?

10) 3G or data don’t work

Go to setting/wireless and network/ mobile network and enable data

  1. Hi again,
    I am going to purchase “Xperia X10i” handset from my friend. but before that I want to study about Rooting, Unlock Bootloader and install custom kernel & Gingerbread to X10. Where i can find all this information?
    And one more thing ,I want your opinion about X10i
    >>>Many Thanks…..

  2. Hi

    XDA is best source for information.

    What i think about X10, it comes with 8.1 MP camera, it has 384 MB RAM, 1 GHz Scorpion, and Adreno 200 GPU, its covered to run Android 4.0(CM9) and works stable with Gingerbread(CM7) since X10 have official gingerbread there are a lot custom roms too, without to unlock the boot loader etc…
    it is a good decision to change. there are a lot of development and blogs for X10

    As long FreeXperia keep development for that device then it’s good.
    I guess 2 a 3 weeks ago someone on xda made a Xperia S port to X10, crazy or not but everything is working also the camera.

    I hope this help a bit.

  3. Yeah, i was really excited, i guess x10 mini & x10 mini pro will be next too.

    Keep an eye on

  4. Hello,
    I want to request to the developer of the GingerDX Rom, to add Devanagari Font. As I am from India I cant read ‘Hindi’ and ‘Marathi’ Language on my X8.
    (“HINDI” is the national language of INDIA.)
    So how can I request them???

    >>>> Thanks <<<<

      • Thanks…
        I am also using 2G data. N I don’t know how to comment in xda discussion thread. Just tell me if you find anything.

      • You too,

        I use older version of Root Explorer, i’ve downloaded from APKTOP is free,
        Yea ES File Explorer, is indeed a good app. won’t say anyting bad about it, has its functions.
        Ive used before, the only problem is, when i try to install APK’s i have “parse error”

        Since CyanogenMod has a Filemanager based on/is OpenIntends (OI), i really like to use this as default, install APK’s from there is working fine, also i want to keep Filemanager and a Root Filemanager apart.


  5. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well
    as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did
    you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
