This page is reserved for known bugs and issues and if possible fixes for xperia x8

1) My battery drain so fast

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

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

If that fail, go to last resort. Reboot to xrecovery and commit a 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

long press and click input method and click default input

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

fixed in the latest version

14) Can’t transfer via bluetooth

Use third party apps like this

15) Can’t find any screenshot apps that works

Use this one.

16)Market problem, battery drain problem, app2sd problem

Full wipe via xrecovery

17) Can’t install apps like angry bird

clean dalvik cache via xrecovery it don’t work, go to cyanogenmod setting/applicationg setting and set new apps installation location to internal

18) 3G or data don’t work

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

  1. I’m using CM6 beta 1 for my X8. I got problem when I played radio. The app seems not working, it keeps says “stopped unexpectedly”.

    Could you tell me why? and how to fix it?

    • Oh yeah, I forgot to add that. FM radio don’t work on all rom. It’s due to SE stupid kernel that stop the radio from working. (even the big x10 had this problem)
