How do i install custom ROM like cyanogenmod on W8???

Hi all,

I've rooted my cell using superoneclick now. Now I want to install CyanogenMod7 [CyanogenMod 7 for the Xperia X8 :: V7.1.0 (11 Oct 2011)]

I'm very new to flashing custom ROM. Please guide me in detail.

Thank you all smile happy

You will find what you seek over at the XDA forums.

But you should know that to install a custom ROM you will need to unlock your boot loader first. Info found here:

I do not recommend that you unlock the boot loader or install any custom ROM if you do not know what your doing. Unlocking your boot loader will void your warranty.
