Just an addition for New Year's Day.

Since the last firmware, is not yet been rooted, i followed zdzihu's method and made a rooted firmware with xrecovery already installed.

I haven't tested this one (as i only own an X10 mini) but it should work.

It is based on 1238-3147 Generic from Phillipines.




In order to install this firmware, you need to install xrecovery first.
Also if you have already flashed with 2.0.2.A.0.24 through SEUS, please downgrade!




Requirements:

DOWNLOAD>>X10 mini flasher

DOWNLOAD>>mini pro.tar.bz2

You will also need an X10 mini pro rooted with xrecovery installed :D

Instructions:

1. Download and unpack mini pro.tar.bz2. It contains 2 files: update.zip and 2.0.2.A.0.24FlasherFiles folder
2. Copy update.zip to SD Card
3. Copy 2.0.2.A.0.24FlasherFiles folder inside the flasher's folder.
4. Boot into xRecovery and install update.zip
5. After finish flashing update.zip, pull the battery off the phone for 20 seconds and then put it back (in order to turn-off phone without rebooting it).
5. Open flasher and press "Flash" tab
6. Choose "2.0.2.A.0.24FlasherFiles" and flasher will show "Searching for Xperia..."
7. Keep the "back button pressed, while plug the phone on usb, until you see the green led on.


Make sure you understand the installation process before you try!

No worries at all. System sin and dsp1.sin are meant to be missing.

Unplug and turn on!

Cheers mate, Works fine :)

I've noticed a bit of an improvement, will reply with a quadrant score aswell, and again with JIT when i enable it :)

Busybox 1.15.3 is the version installed according to Titanium Backup if anyone's interested.
Now i'm just restoring all my apps :)

Not entirely sure what the Application Installer app is though...?

Thanks again mate

    or could we do the normal reflash through SE's PC Companion?

    I haven't tried it and therefore i don't know. But you can try reflashing with SEUS (if something goes wrong) and if it doesn't reflash then try Bin4ry's tool.

    JiT already installed??..

    No mate, this is just full, clean 2.0.2.A.0.24 plus root and xrecovery.

    if ever that i need to do a 'repair' on my phone, do i have to downgrade my phone again? Or do i just simply re-do the steps, ie, update thru xrecovery then flash again via Flasher Tool, without downgrading to the previous build?

    Just back your phone up via xrecovery..

    #1 i got 3g working.

    #2 This doesn't work, i had to replace the mimmi_keypad.kcm.bin with a Danish/Norwegian version.

    It surely works, as it is tested in many many mini pro's.

    You may have not, edited the keyprint.xml properly.
