First thing that I must to say is "disclaimer":
  • Everything that is not originally maded by Sony is custom thing, so everything from here is modified Sony files and these files is "custom files"! So before you go to play with these modified files keep in mind that everything from here is custom thing and you installing these things on your own risk! I no want and I will not be responsible if something go wrong, if you lost your private data, if your device can not boot ...etc...etc, you doing everything on your own risk!!! If you no want to risk than skip this thread!!!

Hi, I've installed firmware before but just want to know, will this work well on the Sola? I have relocked my bootloader ahead of the ICS update, but I would like to test this if it works well on the Sola.

I have used all my thanks today, but thanks!!

This will not touch your stock Gingerbread radio, bootloader and other low level memory, this will flash only boot and system so you can try! If this not working you can easilly restore your GB backup trought recovery, just install my CWM Sola kernel.sin, reboot to recovery, and restore backup! Make surre you create backup before you go to mess with Xperia Go rom!!! Make sure wipe everything + wipe system in mounts menu!

You can give it a try. Since its only system, the worst that will happen is a bootloop

I have big problems since ive flashed tft file from the other posts. Ive tried all of them. All are laggy.

Then ive reflashed the old ginger tft file and all goes well wifi data rate. Then ive flashed your kernel with recovery and flashed your room.zip!

Performance is best! But those Wifi and Data Issues returning. Its a mess

Now I got following Baseband = u8500-49020905-P2H_EC01
