In the process of performing a nandroid right now, will let you know when I've actually tested.

Will need to continue to use Fsync...

Is there something official that says Facebook sync works out are you going off of my post saying it worked? Facebook accounts now appear in the accounts section of settings and in the contacts app and you can even set it to sync all contacts but the Facebook app still is not giving the option which i'm sure is needed for Facebook contact sync to work

You will lose root when you flash the new ftf file. Once rooted again and as long as after you root you don't touch anything at all just do the update, rootkeeper is not needed.

I tried using rootkeeper before i went this route and it did not do anything mainly because the update would not complete. But you don't need it anyway.

I don't know of one, I would say its unlikely

I noticed your post saying it worked, and now it does show up under "Accounts" which it didn't in the past (which is why I said it "says it works"), but it just doesn't do anything. I also noticed under settings in the Fb app it doesn't show up. Very strange issue, but easily bypassed by downloading FSync.

Is anyone having problems transferring files over usb? For some reason, making a folder and transferring files isn't working for me. I'm going through dropbox right now, which shows me that it isn't a problem with the phone's filesystem, but perhaps it's because I have USB debugging on while I'm transferring files? Any ideas or input?

Edit to add my test results:

After applying the notification toggles found in this thread, I can confirm that it works, haven't tested all of the toggles, but they appear, and it doesn't break data.

I then tested the theme in this thread, and found that while the theme was applied, data was broken.

I tried the CRT Screen off animation from this thread, which was confirmed to work on some Xperia Play devices. I didn't notice any difference, even with all animations turned on and such.

Finally, I tested the reboot options from this thread, and found that it also broke data.

That's all I tested, so long as you have a nandroid, you should be fine on testing other things. Have fun, I'm off to bed.

If anyone already has, you'd better warn me before I start, otherwise I'll be just another guinea pig!



Any luck? Do current 2.3.4 themes work now on the R800x?

Nice. I didn't want to double post, but nobody had posted before I finished my preliminary tests. My updated post above has my results.
