KILLER, 25 Dec 2011bad battery.... good running on ANDRIOD 2.3.5 how to updet andro 1.6 to 2.1 eclair?plz help me........
There's nothing illegal about upgrading to a custom android os, like to 2.3.7 with gingerxperia or any of the other builds, that's the reason why android allows the development option in settings . The only thing is that there will be a few bugs n crashes, n u will have to consider the risk b4 upgrading

lalala, 31 Dec 2011if i swap my E71 for SE X8.. Is it worth it? Will anyone tell me what is the specalities of X8... moreIMO it's not worth at all. It's like changing an old device with another outdated one. X8 is too outdated comparing it to the current android phones available in the market. It's too far behind regarding the OS version that wont be upgraded officially beyond v2.1, too many limitation on hardware's and softwares capabilities. Unless you root the phone, you can't install many applications as it has very limited internal storage and you can't install them to memory card. Talking about its specialities, as an Xperia phone X8 is a good designed phone, good in handling multi media and social media facilities, decent performance (in my experience), one complain tho perhaps is the on screen keyboard, quiet uncomfortable on its small screen also the touch responsiveness if compared with Xperia 2011 such as Xperia mini. Last thing to concern if you shift from a nokia phone is battery life: android smartphones are terribly poor at this area. So if you can add more budget you'd better go with a gingerbread android phone.
if i swap my E71 for SE X8.. Is it worth it? Will anyone tell me what is the specalities of X8? Thank you.

- search and download .apk files to your pc, example if you want to install file manager, google it by typing "file manager .apk"
- connect the phone to computer, then send/copy those apk files to the memory card. Disconnect the phone after you've sent them.
- open your phone Settings menu - Applications and tick the Unknown sources option. Back to home screen and find and open Application installer (icon). It will scan and show all .apk files that are stored in memory card, tap the application icon and install.
There are many sites to get android apk files, like from this site:
or from 4shared. Hope this helps.
I bought the SE X8 recently, i have a problem with the battery life....i have to charge like twice a day coz the battery goes flat soo fast...could there be a problem with the battery? or it's just the phone?
The Xperia X8 is a solid device, has a good battery life, GREAT when it's rooted (2.2 really speeds it up), has a dedicated GPU (That Adreno200 is good for detail) and has pretty good specs for the price. It even runs intensive OpenGL2 stuff like Raging Thunder. The only thing I do not like is the UI. Looks a bit worse than default Android since it seems designed for smaller phones, and this isn't that small like Xperia Mini. Pretty good phone for the price though, beats other offerings (Ideos X5/X6 is also a good alternative to this)
If it's not possible on android 2.1 is there any way to upgrade my x8 to 2.2 or 2.3?
