Sent for repair back then. And now, the keyboard format has changed from QWERTY to QWERTZ. Tried setting the format in input setting, but no luck.
Unfortunately, no. Based on my experience, Wi-fi off, GPS off, 3G on, brightness set to lowest, using ICS, battery drains rather quickly i had to charge it in the middle of the day. But then i'm a heavy 3G data user.
i just installed the swapper app from play store and assigned 600mb space for the swap file on my rooted xperia pro with all bloatware removed. now my device is faster. i thought of selling it but now ill keep it for a year or two may be.. thanks to the app..
Regarding the comments about ICS running awful, yes was true, for almost a year since I have this phone. It was new when I bought it, with GB, I let it to do its updates, and since then I had to wait its usual delays, almost after any command, or wait to recover from "freezing" for no reason... And I thought it couldn't get any worst, but in time because of its limited internal memory I remained under 70 mb space, & then I decided to announce all my friends that I have the most stupid smartphone every time I had this chance, with demonstration! Because of its necesary updates, I've gone under 50 mb internal storage, even if I uninstalled almost all the download apps, so I had no choice but RESETTING TO ITS FACTORY SETTINGS - SINCE THAT MOMENT, I DON'T RECOGNISE MY PHONE - IN THE GOOD SENSE! Very important - there are two kind of reset, and only the one without keeping the user data (factory reset) have effects. Even after making only necessary updates and after installing only necessary apps I remaind only with 90 mb (I guess I will pray at the next update) it's still running smoothly, almost like an ifone4 (without an S) without exagerating.
AnonD-61409, 03 Oct 2013Hey Gizmo,
I can help you and you don't need to do almost anything.
I've had this device f... moreHey GB is completely outdated with lack of so many advanced feature.
I am using JB CM10.1 on my pro & worked smoothly & perfectly, it's awesome.
I can help you and you don't need to do almost anything.
I've had this device for a year too. I rooted it and tweaked it. It runs so very nice and any app (lots of them) and GAME runs perfecly fine with good graphics.
There are some things to do to the system but are not "technical" and all is done without changing any custom ROM nor anything difficult.
The first and most important recommendation is to downgrade to stock GB... This means I will only help you (and anyone) with this version 2.3.4. No CM10, MIUI, etc. Stock is better.
Alright, I can help you. But you'll have to follow my instructions.
Contact me: email@example.com
Anyone desiring your Xperia Pro to run much better can contact me and I'll try to help but only if you follow my simple instructions and pay atention cause I don't like to repeat twice.
This is a beautiful device worth keeping.
Pd: Anyone who wants to read my reports/reviews about the Xperia Pro can put in the search box "starsky182".

2 unlock bootloader (optional)
3 download and copy Rom zip file u wish to install on SD card
4 ensure u hv CMW recovery installed after rooting. If u r using stock kernel, then u need to install,else custom kernel comes with it.
5 if you wish to use custom kernel instead of stock kernel, flash kernel by using fastboot tool. before flashing kernel, pls check compatibility of kernel with rom. if u dont know use stock kernel only, but ensure custom rom which u r going to install is supported on stock kernel.

nil, 22 Sep 2013Did u tried?
I also have proYes i have tried 4.2 & 4.3 both.
Currently i am using 4.1.2, working fine.
viraj, 13 Sep 2013i whant to buy pro but dose it gives any problem after upgrade
After update it doens't give any problem.
But considering current options available in market xperia pro now would not be best deal as it has less ram & less internal memory.
One year back it could be excellent deal.
But if you are big fan of qwerty physical keyboard, go for it. Also note one thing softkeyboard with gesture ON also gives speed as faster as physical keyboard.
