Go here. It has a more complete list.

This page is reserved for known bugs and issues and if possible fixes for Xperia mini pro only!

1) My battery drain so fast

Go the setting/wireless and network/ wi-fi setting/ press menu button, advance setting/set wi fi sle ep setting to never

Use root explorer go to /data/system/ delete batterystat.bin, drain battery completely, then charge as usual

Update : If it’s still not working, reboot to xrecovery and full wipe

2)Performance issues

Go to setting/cyanogenmod setting/ perfomance setting and disable JIT and reboot

3) 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.

4) Can’t use froyo native app2sd

Reflash the rom or if you have a partition on your sd card,  delete it.

5) When I plug in the headphone while music is playing, it still play on phone speakers

They are looking at that right now. In the mean time, pause, then play.

6)  Can’t find froyo native wi-fi hotspot

It’s not supported by the Sony Ericsson Kernel. Use Barnacle wi-fi from the market. It works just fine but due to reboot problem, when you exit the app, phone will reboot.

7) For xperia mini pro, the symb button is not working

Blame sony ericsson. It’s a sacrifice you have to make. In the meant time pressing the symb/blue button then space will launch a limited symbol menu.

8 ) Flash is not working

Adobe flash won’t work because our phones processor don’t support it.

9)Charging LED light up, but battery kept on draining.

Unplug it and replug it (if problem persist, unplug the connector to the phone too) The main cause is being investigated.

10)Light sensor kept on lowering the brightness

Go to setting/display/brightness. Disable automatic and set the brightness to max. The problem of this problem will be investigated

11)Music drain battery way faster

Yes, this is a serious issue and will be conveyed to the developers In the mean time, I suggest you kept battery drain minimal by either disabling data or set it to 2G when playing music.

12) My quadrant result varies

Problem being investigated. In the mean time, I don’t think that it affect overall performance that much. But, due warning, games seem to lag a bit.

13) Market got force close all the time

Flash this using xrecovery, courtesy of owain94. If after this, the market still force close, use titanium back up or other system uninstaller to delete the market on your phone. Then reflash the market zip.

If that don’t work, use between this altenative

First use delete the market on your phone (via titanium back up or others mean) then install the apk directly inside the zip.

If that don’t work, copy the apk to system/apps via root explorer. Change permission to be the same as other apps . (Check the other apps and make sure the permission are similiar

14)Clock apps has its digital clock cut off like the screen is too small

No apparent fix yet

15) Having trouble installing themes?

1. Download //whatever the name is// 
2.put it in /sdcard
3. Create CMTheme folder in sdcard zip there is file XHC.xml put that in CMTheme // for other themes this *.xml file is in zip in folder /sdcard/CMTheme/ //
5.reboot to xRecovery > install custom zip > install the zip in sdcard
7. Phone on.. go CM tweak setting
Vola its there…

16) Volume buttons don’t work when screen is off. you need to tap one of the other buttons to light up the screen, then adjust volume.
(this applies to media volume, iirc volume in phonecall works fine)

Fixed in the latest version

17) Can’t choose live wallpaper
No fix yet

18)FM radio don’t work

Fixed in the latest version

19) Headphone don’t get detected

Fixed in the latest version

20) Call is silent/no ring tone

Go to setting and set the ring tone and vibrate. It’s by default silent

21) 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 robyn_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 102 HOME Wake_DROPPED
key 158 BACK
key 139 MENU
key 102 HOME

fix thx to herrossi

22) My phone stop detecting my wi fi network

Just forget the wi fi network and readd it.

23) Compass not working

Owain is working on it

will update this post as time progressed.

23) Wi-fi connection unstable

Clear dalvik cache via xrecovery

24) Can’t find any screenshot apps that works
