Default [Q] Kernel for CM 7.1

Hi friends,

1.I have an Xperia X8.I have recently unlocked the bootloader and rooted the phone.I wanted to install CM 7.1(shakira).So,I downloaded the ROM from the official cyanogenmod website.I read in one of the post that it works only with the kernel FXP30.After searching for a long time(because most of the links are dead) ,i finally found one.I flashed the kernel by using the flashtool provided by androxyde.Through the recovery mode,i flashed the cm7.1.It said flashing was successful.But after rebooting,it shows only "free xperia project" and nothing else happens...I tried cleaning the dalvik cahe,wiped the partition,did a factory reset.But no use...Is there any way to get it working? or am i doing anything wrong?

2.is MINI JB 4.2 better than CM 7.1?since i failed installing CM,i have flashed mini jb 4.2...but i want to install CM7.1 so badly...

Thanks in advance ....

1. FXP30 Kernel??? LOL never heard of that one before.
Any way since I have never heard of that kernel before it probably is pretty old and unsupported. Try using this ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1362585 with this kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1350484 .
2. Do you mean JB Mini Project ROM? Because that ROM is Android 4.1.2 and not 4.2. Witch one is better depends on what you want. JB Mini Project has a lot more features and a lot more apps are compatible with it since it is a JB ROM, and any CM7 based ROM would be faster but there would be less apps compatible with it.
