I've made bundles for FlashTool, for X8i and X8a, with basebands 006 and 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.
If you try to flash latest kernel to phone with baseband 006, you'll get infinite boot loops. This can be fixed by simply flashing correct bundle (kernel/baseband).

This will NOT wipe userdata!

All basebands are in Xperia X8 folder on Mediafire.
Currently, these basebands are available:
X8i - E15i
Baseband 006 - kernel 2.0.2.A.0.24
Baseband 015 - kernel 2.1.1.A.0.6

X8a - E15a
Baseband 006 - kernel 2.0.2.A.0.24
Baseband 015 - kernel 2.1.1.A.0.6

Every baseband version is: M76XX-TSNCJOLYM-534040xy where xy is either 06 or 15, depending on which baseband you flash.

Update: jerpelea's CM7, racht's ports, as-mario's MIUI and ponanovn's MiniCM port are all made for latest kernel and baseband 015. Nice to see that, thanks

Enjoy, and be careful, don't brick the phone, and if you do, don't blame me, you're doing this on your own risk!

It's for X8i version ONLY! If anyone has got 2.x flash files for X8a, give them to me and I'll make baseband bundle

X8i
Baseband 006 - X8i_2.1.1.A.0.6_Baseband_006.7z
Baseband 015 - X8i_2.1.1.A.0.6_Baseband_015.7z

Don't forget to update 7-Zip to latest version if you have problems with opening archive.
(Note: 7-Zip gives me best compression ratio - about 38% for these files - which is required due to my slow upload)

Enjoy, and be careful, don't brick the phone, and if you do, don't blame me, you're doing this on your own risk!

what is the advantage of this?? not meaning to be rude

The advantage is that you can change baseband as it please you. Why you'd want to I have no clue

He said "If you try to flash latest kernel to phone with baseband 006"

not to flash latest baseband to phone with old kernel. this is your status, you flash the latest baseband to old kernel.

what blagus said about infinite bootloops is when you flash the latest kernel (2.1.1) to phone with baseband 006, your case is the opposite. understand?

Does PC Companion get your device into flash mode? If so, then redownload flashtool. If not - get your X8 connected and go into hardware manager of your computer, find your connected phone and erase all the drivers, then reinstall PC Companion for new drivers.
