Add-ons & Extras for FroyoPro
ADD-ONS & EXTRAS:
Android Market not showing all apps:
Settings->applications->manage applications->all->
Force stop+clear data for "market" & "google services framework"
Reboot.


Install custom kernels on FroyoPro: Follow this link!
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1437913
New: Please use the "x8FroyoPro-Alfsv8+AllFixv3.zip" for Alfs >v7ICS/v8+.
Old: Please use the V2 "x8AlfsKernelAllin1FixV2.zip" for Alfs <v7/6/5.
No need to flash any other zips.


Enable Swap on Custom Kernels:
Follow this guide here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1446164


Themes, themes & more themes for this rom:
Visit the XDA CM Theme Chooser Sticky. Many, many themes to choose from. For best compatibility choose the MDPI themes as we have a MDPI resolution device. You can also check out ICS themes AChep's ICS, SonnySekhon's ICS and ICS Lockscreen. You may also want to check out this thread from zhuhang.
Please note: Some themes are 'heavy' or 'fat' and may slow down our little phone.


Stock Lockscreens:
Don't like the lockscreens in FroyoPro?
Follow this link to find a flashable zip that will change them back to looking like stock: StockLockscreens 4 FroyoPro.


Flash Player for FroyoPro:
Download "x8Flash4FroyoPro.apk" from Here or Here.
Install it as a normal apk from your sd-card, using filebrowser or any apk installer.


Wireless Tether for FroyoPro:
Download "wireless_tether_2_0_7_for_X8_X10mini.apk" from Here or attached to this post.
Install it as a normal apk from your sd-card, using filebrowser or any apk installer.
WiFi+Data must be on for wireless tethering to work!
This works on stock kernel!!! I have tested it myself! After you have finished tethering, remember to reboot! (Otherwise can have problems with normal Wifi.)


Disable apps2sd for FroyoPro:
Want to use Link2sd instead of app2sd? Just follow this link and flash the file attached.
NoApps2sd.

'Walkman' Music Player for FroyoPro:
This is actually a MIUI music player mod, just install the apk normally. It really suits the stock theme of this ROM.
Download from XDA Here.
Thanks goes to Bakabon19, Paul-XXX, & Frogy Furnetal.


Connect to VPN networks for FroyoPro: Download "VPN_Connections_v099.apk
From Here or attached to the bottom of this post.


Bravia Tweak: XRecovery or ClockWorkMod
Bravia Tweak (x8FP_bravia_tweak.zip) is attached to the bottom of this post!


GoogleAppsRemoved: XRecovery or ClockWorkMod
These are a few apps I removed since FroyoProv1.1.
Included is googlemaps/street, etc. This is if you can't download it from the market.
Download Here or Here.


How do I enable these modules & remove .bak extension??
Click on their names (the modules names) in the first post to learn more about them and how to enable them.
To remove the .bak extension rename the files with any root file browser.
Root Explorer, Root Browser, ES File Explorer, Ghost File Manager, etc.


Partition sdcard for Data2Ext or Apps2SD
The easiest way to create sd-ext/2nd SDcard partition is to follow this simple guide:

FroyoBread is MiniCM6 with Doixanh settings and added Gingerbread goodness, FroyoPro is based on FroyoBread, this rom is based on FroyoPro v1.1.

If you already have FroyoPro then you already have ClockWorkMod, enter it by repeatedly tapping the touch-screen while the Sony Ericsson logo is displaying at boot-up.

Uploading to another mirror now.
