Info 2 ★[FAQ][CM10.1/10.2][All Xperia 2011]★

Hi people,
I hope this can help those who ask some common questions in all threads or just don't read the OP or the OP hasn't Q&A, so let's start.

Q: How to enable the developer options on CM10.1/10.2?
A: Settings>About phone> click 7 times on Build number.

Q: Where I can find gapps?
A: Here.

Q: The call volume is too low, why?
A: This’s a known issue not only in Xperia phones but in the most 4.1.x & 4.2.x roms on other phones. Anyway, check your baseband. If you are not using the newest, update it here: How to Install JB, ICS or GB on Xperia™ Smartphones, as well as root them.
Or/And: Decreases the volume and increase it during a call.( this tip works for me, I'm using BB.77 but should work with other basebands too).

Q: My camera doesn’t work properly, 720p still has low quality, blablabla… why?
A: Because Sony doesn’t release JB camera libs for Sony Xperia 2011 phones, so you can wait till any developer make some kind of magic or sign this petition: "JB Camera libs for all Sony Xperia 2011 Phones".

Q: Why my Wi-Fi doesn't work?
A: Before reporting that it doesn't work, use the kernel (boot.img) inside the rom (.zip).

Q: How to enable the pie controls & navigation bar?
A: First you need a file explorer, then add this line qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 to /system/build.prop & reboot the phone to activate the on screen buttons (Navigation Bar). Then go to Settings>System>Power menu>Expanded desktop & activate it & then you will see pie control in the Settings>System menu.

Q: How to enable lockscreen rotation?
A: First you need a file explorer, then add this line lockscreen.rot_override=true to /system/build.prop & reboot the phone to take effect.

Q: How to disable buttons backlight? (This's only for JB 4.2.2 old releases)
A: First you need a file explorer, then go to /system/etc & edit the hw_config.sh file like that:

# LMU AS3676 Configuration
dev=/sys/devices/i2c-0/0-0040/leds
echo 500 > $dev/button-backlight/max_current

Change the value to:

# LMU AS3676 Configuration
dev=/sys/devices/i2c-0/0-0040/leds
echo 1 > $dev/button-backlight/max_current

After editing, save the file & restart your phone to take effect.

This new method is for Mike's CM10.1 rom (04/06/2013 & 17/06/2013 builds) or other roms based on his rom:
First download this file & then, using a file explorer, copy the file to /system/etc/init.d & set permission to rwxr-xr-x (0755), then restart your phone to take effect.
Thanks to AndyYan

Q: While flashing a rom I get "status 7" error, how to fix it?
A: This happens because you have probably wiped the system. See here how to fix it.

Q: My compass doesn't work correctly with Google Maps, Google Earth, etc. How to fix it?
A: Try this. First you need a file explorer, then go to /system/etc/sensors.conf. If by default is like that:

#Setup AKM897x axis
ak897xorientation_axis_map = 0,1,2
ak897xorientation_axis_sign = 1,1,-1
ak897xmagnetic_axis_map = 1,0,2
ak897xmagnetic_axis_sign = -1,1,1


Then change the values to:

#Setup AKM897x axis
ak897xorientation_axis_map = 0,1,2
ak897xorientation_axis_sign = 1,1,-1
ak897xmagnetic_axis_map = 0,1,2
ak897xmagnetic_axis_sign = -1,-1,1


Caution: Create a backup of your default sensors.conf file & after editing, restart your phone to take effect.
Thanks to mmhasanovee

Q: How I can help the development of any ROM?
A: Not with, "+1", "FC", "me too", "same bug here", blablabla. These comments are useless.

Q: So, how I can really help?
A: Simple. Remember doing this you're helping the developer & yourself, you're intelligent, so you understand what I'm saying, right!?!

Do that in the right ROM thread:

Phone model:
Baseband version:
ROM version:
Did you?
wipe:
restore with titanium backup:
reboot after having the issue:
Are you using?
a task killer:
the kernel (boot.img) in the zip or other:
Settings/Performance settings (other than default):
What steps will reproduce the problem?
But the most important thing is this: attach a LOGCAT of the problem.

Q: Ok nice, but I’m noob & I don’t know how to LOGCAT, where I can learn?
A: Here, here or stop being lazy & search in XDA forums.
