INSTALL INSTRUCTION FROM FRESH STOCK ROM

SOME APP CRASH, WHY?
Try to delete all the data of the app from the application menu.
Try to uninstall and reinstall the app.
Sometimes you need a fresh SEUS flash...Try to discover if your app not work only for you or all the people...
SOME APP DON'T INSTALL (like angry birds), AND NOW?
Try to Wipe Dalvik Cache using xRecovery
In case, if any app doesn't install even after cleaning Dalvik Cache via xRecovery for some reason.. Try this command:
Or simply navigate to /mnt/secure/asec/ using root explorer, find smdl2tmp1.asec and delete it. It will solve the problem.

MY X10 SOMETIMES REBOOT, WHY?
Reboots? -> Flash non overclocked version or try to remove undervolt option.

CAN'T USE OLD APP2SD and ext2/3/4 PARTIOTION, WHY?
Some custom roms use the native Froyo app2sd, go in the app menu and move from here to the sd, the old app2sd is born for Enclair rom, on this roms not work.

IN THIS ROM WE SHOULD HAVE JIT ENABLEAD OR DISABLED?
Leave jit enabled, it gives you the best overall performance. If you play a lot of games its ok to turn it off. I leave it on all the time. If you need to save battery you can also try to turn jit off. Resizing jit heap takes a bit of battery
HOW I CAN SET AN APP AS THE DEFAULT APP?
Go to the application menu ---> manage application ---> find the old default app and remove the default. Next time android make you the question of the new default app.
HOW I CAN REMOVE SYSTEM APP?
IS Dangerous but if you want try use an app like TITANIUM BACKUP.
MY PHONE STAYS AT SONY LOGO OR IS IN BOOT LOOP
Check baseband version ends with xxxxxxxxx015 if not you WILL need to flash to newest Sony Firmware with SEUS ( 2.1.1.A.06)

Goto Settings -> Display : turn off automatic brightness
Now goto Settings-> Cyanogen Mod -> User Interface -> Automatic Backlight:
Enable the Checkbox "Enable"
Length of Timewindow : 30 seconds
Timeintervall : 5 seconds

SMILEY PAGE ON SYM KEY IS FREEZED EVERYTIME SCROLLED TO THE END,HOW TO FIX?
Enable desktop overscrolling in cm setting > user interface. It only works for Sym Key page while keyboard is opened, not for the portrait style touch keyboard.
I CAN'T FIND OR USE MP3 RINGTONES OR RINGTONES ON FROYOCOMB
put ringtones or mp3's on /sdcard/ringtones and reboot
MY AUDIO LAGS WHEN PLAYING MUSIC
Set MINIMUM cpu speed to at least 245 MHz or 320 MHz instead of 122 MHz
PROBLEMS WITH WIFI?
through xrecovery, thanks to bitmovel
I DISABLED WLAN AND ENABLED BLUETOOTH BUT I STILL HAVE PROBLEMS WITH BLUETOOTH
settings - apps (all) - "bluetooth forwarding" - clear data
- reboot to xrec:
- clear dalvik cache, clear cache data
- reboot, enter pin, wait (wait until system is booted completely
- reboot again
- have fun
( lazy people can try if just clearing app data in first step helps, otherwise go through the described process)
