but how do you install OS 2.3 gingerbread because in X8 you can ... moreyou 1st have to root your phone with oneclick root. then put xrecovery in the phone and nd install busybox+ chargemon in it via root explorer. Download a mod (gingerxperia v23 i've) put it in your sd card and install it wiping the 2.1. It works, u just need 2 read some posts and watch videos for it.
*rooting voids your phone warrenty. Do evrything at your own risk.

but how do you install OS 2.3 gingerbread because in X8 you can only upgrade it to 2.1 eclair, right?
phonefinder, 21 Feb 2012hey guys.. can you please tell me if whether the third party apps(apps from android market and... moreits installed on the phone internal memory as weলl as ram.. nd it hampers your smooth operation later on.. use apps2sd or latest OS Gingerbread 2.3.7.. u'll be able to transfer them to Sdcard even if they are installed on the phone memory initially. :)
been using it for 6 months only and now it is not working properly.. touchscreen is pressing on its own without me touching anything. it is going crazy even making a call on its own.. tried pulling out the battery while it is on and also doing a master clear/factory data reset but the same thing is happening.. good thing it still has warranty left to it.. just not a good phone to have!!!
hey guys.. can you please tell me if whether the third party apps(apps from android market and etc) on Xperia X8 are stored inside the SD memory card or the internal phone memory? because if it is stored inside the internal memory, which isn't really all that much, you can't have many apps in it.. :/
Dave, 21 Feb 2012it's because galaxy y has 800 mhz processor and x8 has 600 mhz, but if you've rooted galaxy y ... morehiii guyz i want to know about battery backup in standby mode and on normal usage . i txt alot and i am a music lover to i txt150 messages everyday , 5-10calls daily about 2-4hours daily and music via handset 2hours everyday and 1-2hour net... on this usage can x8 stands for 2 days??????
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2012galaxy y is faster than x8 but the battery back up of x8 is much better than galaxy y. it's because galaxy y has 800 mhz processor and x8 has 600 mhz, but if you've rooted galaxy y and use cpu speed manager, you can make it to 600 mhz too, and of course, the battery backup is more longer.
i saw in Youtube that this phone is updated to 2.2 version (froyo) is this true?pls reply.. thank you

KING.Dhodz, 14 Feb 2012for those who experience the xperia x8 and SGY in actual, pls tell me what is a better phone?w... moreI have had the x8 a year now and it is quite good. The camera is ok, love android market and awesome design. It also comes with a built in programme called timescape. Its pretty nifty! The only cons is the battery which only lasts a day and of using internet and apps only 2 hours. Also some apps force close. Overall i think its good smartphone for the price, okay it aint perfect but what is? Hope this helps
best smartphone. do not compare it to galaxy y. galaxy y sucks big time!!!
