    Thanks!!!!!! I’m looking to finally have a smoother xperia x10 and with fast android (2.2.1)
    I’m going to try it now!

  • Deckard Cain

    Ok, I did it! Since it’s the first time I change for a custom ROM, I had a common problem that is the BOOTLOOP problem because the baseband version. For somehow, the baseband version I had in my mobile (although old) was x10i and not the x10a (written in the stick behind the mobile). To stop the booloop, I needed to reinstall a generic firmware to x10a, then reinstalled xrecovery and then the custom rom. That way the bootloop has gone ;)

    Weird because the custom rom went back to x10i, but no more reboots.

    Anyway, everything abou installation is also updated in the post of the rom:

    and they already have a newer version!

    Anyway, I feel so happy to have 2.2.1 and blazzing fast interface :D

    Thanks so much

    Does the camera and video work?

  • Rhys

    It works :D the camera is a beauty and the video works flawlessly. One problem I have is that it wiped my APNs and Network Settings. Its no big deal because I can reinstate them easily, but it is a bit of an annoying thing. Anyone else experiance this, or is it just me?
