Installing Custom Rom And Updating Baseband
HI Friends again I am here to help u out for installing custom rom in Ur X8 or W8, I am also a W8 user and tried hard to root and install custom rom in my mobile without damaging my mobile. Everybody said that there is a risk in rooting and installing custom ROM, but it seems there is no fear (for me).
Ok let’s start, So U will need a USB cable, Flash Tool 0.2.9.1, Xperia X8 Driver(included in Flash Tool), Java JDK 6.
So start preparing Ur mobile for Installation of custom ROM, first of all back up all the data for example contacts, messages, notes etc. If u have not rooted the mobile yet then U can do it with the help of the tutorial. Go to Application>development and activate USB debugging by touching on that. Install all the above mentioned software to Ur Pc; you can see my rooting tutorial here.
After rooting U have to update to the latest Baseband which will allow u installing custom ROM s.
Update your phone to latest baseband before installing new ROMs.[current for W8 - 015]
Kernel and baseband are related to each other, so if you have baseband 006, you'll have 2.0.2.A.0.24 kernel, and with baseband 015 you'll get 2.1.1.A.0.6 kernel.
To check baseband - Settings > About Phone > Baseband version.
To update Baseband download the latest baseband here.
To upgrade the baseband open Extract the downloaded Baseband file and copy the .ftf file to the firmware folder of Flash Tool. After that open Flashtool.exe and click on Flash and select the .ftf file firmware and click OK. Wait for some time a pop up will appear when the process will be started as shown below. But don’t click on that cancel button.
Unplug the USB cable from the phone . turn off the phone . after turning off press and hold the back key of ur phone and insert the usb cable in the mean time . The Green LED will appear , and on the pop up message click on Ok button.
It will show a message that “Found at USB/……..” , just wait for some time.
If the “Start Flashing” message appear everything is ok …
When last message appears unplug /plug USB cable. Restart the phone and after the restart the baseband must have been upgraded.
Connect the phone after the phone starts and click on the Xrecovery , it will start installing Xrecovery , and it will show a message that successfully installed Xrecovery , after the installation click on optimize . the phone will restart and will be optimized for xrecovery.
Then download custom ROMS from here .
