This isn't really the type of questions we answer here. Might I suggest that you try http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=847 since we obviously don't recommend modifying your software as it voids the warranty.

I think you misunderstood :smileyhappy: There is no issue, I just wanted to make sure you get the best answer (and wanted to warn you about the warranty situation)!

Re: BEST custom rom for Xperia X8?

There is two roms which everything works in.

Rachts Floyo v0.20 and Elelinux for X8, the biggest difference on those two is Elelinux comes preloaded with the Pinch 2 Zoom module, Overclock,undervolt and the MDDi lag fix module.

Elelinux rom can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1070294

Rachts Floyo v0.20 can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=914513

Re: BEST custom rom for Xperia X8?

There is always risks with custom roms but so far i havent had any issues flashing a custom rom and i have tried several roms. If you follow the instructions, then it should be no problem.

If you brick your phone, there is several ways to restore it.

1. Use Xrecovery to revert to the latest backup

2. Use SEUS to restore the original rom from SE

3. Flashtool, but this is something i have rarely seen anyone using.

Re: BEST custom rom for Xperia X8?

Check: http://www.xda-developers.com , there is a thread on how to install Xrecovery on your phone. But before you are able to install Xrecovery, you need to root your phone. All information can be found at xda-developers.

PC Companion or SEUS will most likely fix your phone, but as always, you should be careful when performing root or installing a custom rom.
