DISCLAIMER: Please use the info below at your own risk with no warranty of any kind.

Here is how you can try Gingerbread 2.3 safely and revert back to your stock Android Eclair 2.1.1 if you don't like the Android Gingerbread 2.3.5 ROM

PREREQUISITES <-- IMPORTANT!!!
1) Make sure you have Rooted and xRecovery installed on your Xperia X8.
2) Make sure you have new baseband xxxxxxx15 - check <settings><About phone>
If you don't have baseband xxxx015 your phone will end up in a boot loop




METHOD:

A) BACKUP STOCK ANDROID ECLAIR 2.1

Step 1: Make a backup copy of your Android Eclair 2.1 using xRecovery
- check that your phone's SD Card has at least 650MB of free space
[SD card free space is to hold both your phone original backup ROM and the 2.3 ROM]
- shutdown your X8 and wait 5 seconds -> <reboot> your phone.
- when you see the words [Sony Ericsson] on the phone screen -> start pressing the back button on your phone multiple times and you will enter the xRecovery Menu.
- select <backup and restore><backup> from the menu

NOTE:

- This will create a backup file in your SD Card <SD/xRecovery/backup>
- After you have completed the backup using xRecovery, it will return to the menu screen.
- Now choose <reboot> - your X8 phone should restart

B) DOWNLOADING 2.3.3 ROM

Step 2: Download GingerXperia ROM
- <mount> your Xpedia X8 and copy this file <GingerXperiaV8.zip> into SD card
- <unmount> and shutdown your Xpedia X8

C) Custom install THE 2.3.5 ROM

Step 3: Installing the 2.3.5 ROM on your Xpedia X8
- <boot> Xpedia X8
- when you see the words [Sony Ericsson] on the phone screen -> start pressing the back button on your phone multiple times and you will enter the xRecovery Menu.
- <select><factory reset (full wipe)>
- scroll down and hit <install custom zip>
- select <GingerXperiaV8.zip> from your SD card & hit <yes>
- xRecovery will start to install the 2.3.5 ROM on your phone.
- when it is done, xRecovey will go back to the startup menu
- <click><reboot>

Now you can start using your phone - Isn't Gingerbread 2.3.5 great!!!


DON'T WANT TO USE THE 2.3.5 ROM ANYMORE?
Well it was fun visiting and touring the Gingerbread 2.3.5 ROM, now let's go back to Eclair 2.1.1

D) RESTORING THE Official Android Eclair 2.1.1 ROM

Step 4: Reinstalling your original Eclair 2.1.1 ROM
- <shutdown> wait 5 seconds <reboot> Xpedia X8
- when you see the words [Sony Ericsson] on the phone screen -> start pressing the back button on your phone multiple times and you will enter the xRecovery Menu.
- <select><factory reset (full wipe)>
- scroll down and hit <backup/restore><restore>
- you should see your original 2.1 backup ROM
- <select> <2011-10-xx.xx.xx.xx.ROM><restore> [it should look something like 2011-05-06.21.01.23]
- xRecovery will start to install the original 2.1.1 ROM [the ROM you've backed up in Step 1] from your phone's SD Card.
