Hi guys,
as the title says, I managed to port the Hero/Legend/Gratia/Aria ROMs with Sense to our X8.

To install use xRecovery, busybox+xrecovery preinstalled in rom so you can restore backups after.
If upgrading from my previous rom to newer version, do Advanced Restore and restore only /system partition, all your data will be preserved.

These roms REQUIRE latest baseband version xxx15
Take the new baseband and flasher from my server here
or just the firmware if you have the flash tool already, here
Check if u need update by typing "busybox uname -a", u need this (notice date) :
Linux localhost 2.6.29 #1 PREEMPT Fri Dec 17 18:35:45 2010 armv6l GNU/Linux
blagus - thanks a lot !

Thanks go to J&Z and Erasmux!
Enjoy !

Updated 06-June-2011 :
Thanks again for all who donated, you have covered my weekend beer expenses
I was asked to do new releases to donators first for testing, and official release once bugs are solved.
This sounds like a good idea, if you have donated to me, you will receive an email with password to access to latest updates once its setup.
I believe this is the only way to both show my appreciation and not impact the rest of community.
Once again, no modaco-style, all roms will be shared with everybody in the end.

Updated 10-Feb-2011 :
Cookers only

Here is the tool to check library dependencies in roms.
It is arm-compiled, to setup do these steps :

adb push ld-linux /system/bin/
adb shell
chmod 04755 /system/bin/ld-linux

To see library dependencies run ld-linux on any .so file and it will give u the list.

To install your cooked Floyo rom built from sources, put this script update-script
/META-INF/com/google/android/ directory inside, delete both update-binary and updater-script from it and copy to SDcard.
Now use xRecovery to install it normally.
Once installed, and BEFORE REBOOT reinstall xRecovery files into /system/bin/ directory.
You should also extract original boot.img files into /system/bin/ramdisk.tar and install chargemon from one of my Floyo roms.
To enable adb root and debug mode, put property.tar to /system/bin/ - take it from Floyo rom.
Now it should boot.
If you don't see boot animation of Floyo, try replacing /system/lib/
To fix sound, replace
To fix Vibra and Leds :
make sure these programs start fine before going further :
If one of these 3 fails, it won't boot.
The following are for network and gsm :
wpa_supplicant - make sure if you run it manually, reported interface is wlan0 and not tiwlan0

The fixes required for ramdisk.tar :
init.rc file should have 2 parts from original sony init.rc that are marked as #SEMC
add original and from sony or one of my ramdisks, those are responsible for service declarations.

Rom patching modifications :
/system/etc/firmware/ dir
/system/etc/sensors* files
/system/etc/*.sh files
/system/lib/hw/ dir
/system/lib/modules/ dir
Those are probably required for every rom..

yes you make sure make back up of the current firmware and files and you can get to your previous condition if you are worried about bugs by using xrecovery restore feature.
