Hi All,

First of all, I'm a newbie on Android, I just Install Cyano 11 a couple of time on Samsung phone and nothing else.

Now, I want to install Viper V8 ROM on a Sony Live With Walkman, but I'm freezed XD

I already unlock my phone using Sony official procedure for developer, then I install CWM as described in this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2253405

Now ???

I have 3 issue/question:

1 - When I power up the phone and continuosly press Volume Downa after Sony logo , phone start in Safe Mode and not in Recovery mode
2 - Everytime I turno off and on the phone it ask me to choose language
3 - How damn I must do to install Viper V8????

PS: Flashtool doesn't recognize the phone.

Please, let me know how to install Viper V8 step by step if You can.

Thanks

Luca

since you have unlock your phone bootloader, why dont you flash MESA kernel just like recommended in Viper V8. beside flashtool, you also can use kernel flasher by danist727.

one more suggestion, you also can flash 4.1.B.0.587 in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1837398 ..

hope i help.

Thanks ahmadshuib,

I'll try to check Your link, I'm trying with Viper V8 because I need to use this phone just as MP3 player for my car (connecting it with AUX cable), and in another forum some user suggest me Viper ROM because is the best for music.

But my problem is not which ROM I can use, but how I can install them...

Finally... IT WORKS!!!! I must mix some guide to acquire Root permission to install CWM, but now works (using eroot)
