There are many good Roms for our Xperia x8 in xda, But it is hard to determine which one is right for you,, when i first started i faced a lot of problems deciding on which rom to use,, eventually i found out that it depends on the user on what he wants in his rom and chose the appropriate rom accordingly, SO i am going to include all the roms i have used and give detailed information , so you can choose according to your needs

If your having a hard time finding the best kernel for your X8 as well , Check out my Guide To Kernels
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1469464

But first Read these up if you don't know how to install a custom Rom also i have included a guide on how to install a custom kernel

#Custom Kernel Guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=17384177&postcount=3


#1. Froyobread : This Rom is a great choice for beginners, its stable and fast. it's core cm6. Android 2.2, a great upgrade if you are still using the 2.1 stock eclair this is the best upgrade,, many hail this as the best stable ROM there is, its full of features, it delivers smooth performance, and i have found it to be very stable. so if your new just use this, you will be satisfied
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1079463

Pros : Still considered the most stable Rom, Fast and Smooth Performance, Good app Performance, android 2.2 has greater app support, most features work without any problems, little or no bugs, one of the most famous rom so if you have any problem lot of people out there to help you

Cons: Android 2.2 has become old many people prefer Android 2.3 over it. Not as Smooth as gdx when it comes to scrooling, according to some people Wifi does not work(it worked for me though)

#2.Hackdroid: A decent rom, flashy and stylish, sometimes laggy. but overall a very good room. great for starters, however many people stated this one to be a little unstable , but it really depends on what apps you run if you are looking for a good looking rom with visual features this one is a pretty good choice
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=914513

Pros: Very Customizable, Decent Performance, Stable if you stick to normal apps, Has more features than most Roms

Cons: A little Laggy, Sometimes Unstable, Many people have Reported bugs in this rom. Other Roms Offer Superior Performance


#3.KuyaDroid: This one is an awesome rom, solid and stable, fast performance smooth menu and everything is decent. Its a good rom if your into gaming as it has built in Overclock, Undervolt, and gesture.(note these features can be manually added on other roms too). One more noticable thing about this rom is that it's core is cm7, and android version 2.3( a big update from the stock 2.1)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1109563

Pros: Very fast app performance, Smooth Scrooling, Android 2.3, Wide Range of Users so you will easily find solutions if you face any problems, Overall Solid CM7 Rom.

Cons: Lacks Features that are available on Gingerdx, Some Reported Bugs, some apps force closes

#4.GingerDX: This is A cm6 - cm7 update of the Famous Froyobread, So far its fast and stable although a few bugs have been reported but its one of the most stable and working cm7 , android 2.3 roms around. its definitely worth a try if you want a fast and smooth working rom. also it has some pretty good features more than most roms out there to exact. Many people state this is the best Cm7 rom out there

Pros: One of the Smoothest CM7 Rom i have used, Full of features, Customizable, Most apps work without any problem, Regularly Updater, Wide range of users so you will easily find solutions if you do face any problem, Upgraded Camera

Cons: People claim it to be stable but not fast(A custom kernel helps in that case), Some minor bugs still needs to be fixed, Some features and still needs to be more polished and stable, updates have recently slowed down

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1188486

#5.BehradGH: this one is a light and simple rom, not a bad choice for newbies but it does not have as much customizable features as the other roms, its a good rom for starters,, so if your looking for a simple rom and an upgrade from your stock rom you should try this one
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=955467

Pros: Light Rom, Good for Average Daily apps, Simple rom without complications. Simple Upgrade from the Stock Rom

Cons: Powerful Games Such As Nova, MC Sandstorm often Force closes, Some Reported Bugs, A little unstable while Performing Certain Operations

#6.GingerCruzt: Just tested this Rom Recently , And boy was i surprised :), good performance and good looks, which is something very hard to get in one rom. in some cases better than GDX, but not as stable when running apps, but for normal daily use this one beats most of the roms out there. also it has a very similar look to the stock android. so if your into stock looks, try this out. also its android 2.3 /Cm7.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1101691

Pros: New and fresh, Decent Performance and Features, Not bad for daily use, most apps work without problem, Android 2.3. the new look is unique(gc 8.1 and after)

Cons: The Creator of the Rom is not really Co operative since he is not really active on XDA, Minor bugs, Is not updated as regularly as other Roms, Lacks advanced Features that available on other Cm7 Roms

#7.Krauser-SROM: Recently Tested this Rom, this uses a lot of Froyobreads Features, Its fast and stable , not a bad choice if you want try something other than those famous roms, i found it to be really decent rom. Not bad for daily normal usage

Pros: Simple Lightweight Rom, Most apps work, Stable and Smooth

Cons: Some FC on apps, Community of its users is not as big as Froyobread, Android 2.2, Doesn't have much features as some of the other roms
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1184735

#8.GingerXperia: This rom is pretty good, and i actually find it to be even faster than gdx,Yes it lacks the features which gdx offers but if you can make do without those advanced features this is the rom for you, its also reported to be stable and smooth , its not bugfree though but hopefully it will be fixed on future updates

Pros: Very fast, Simple Rom, Light weight, Good app performance, Stable Rom,

Cons: Lacks some Features, some bugs, New so the community is still small, got worse with recent updates,the rom's creator used a lot of contents from other roms without taking permission from them(The issue seems to be resolved after V017)

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1373679

#9.Fd xperience: One of the better new roms, it has a stock look which is sure to attract many people, if you want to upgrade but do not want tolose your stock looks and yet have a stable upgraded rom this is the rom for you, its smooth and fast better than most roms out there, But it has some bugs and support issues, and i got some fc when playing games on it , other than that its very stable and fast

Pros:Fast,Stock look, Stock apps, good app performance, Smooth scrooling,

Cons: The contacts app is very slow, The music player lacks features, Some 3d games FC, the new updates boasted looks but slowed down performance

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1089690

#10.Stornmix: This is a very recent rom, It has the looks. The framework is beautiful, However the visuals in my opinion has been given more importance than speed in this which makes it slow, and many people i asked said that it really lags when playing hd games. Otherwise the rom is reported to be stable soo far. very few bugs, and if your not into gaming this rom may be a good choice

Pros: Looks Awesome, Fresh Look, Unique framework, Stable, Not many Bugs, Pretty Fast for daily use

Cons: laggy for gaming, Very small community of people using, not as much customization as other famous roms, Still needs more work, camera doesnt work properly, Contact numbers are not visible

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1339823

#11.GingerXperiaRay: Another recent edition to X8 roms, Frankly i like this rom, stable, good performance, not many bugs, It's a good rom for gaming soo far i was able to run some hd games pretty well in it. The rom is smooth and maybe a good choice if your into gaming

Pros: Fast and stable, Built in ICS TRANSITIONS, Good app performance, Light

Cons: Needs custom kernel to fully work(Hopefully will be fixed soon), Needs more testing, Very new and very little users

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1393520

#12:LinuXperia: This is a good rom, the creator has worked a lot and improved it from what it was, however many people have reported some problems and bugs. and there are some doubt about it being fully compatible with the stock kernel

Pros:Fast rom. good gaming performance, Stable(Many said that previous versions are more stable)

Cons: According to many people the update affected its overall performance, Not as customizable as Famous roms, Needs Custom kernel to work well

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1363033
If anyone wants their Rom added in this thread just let me know

#13.AtiFroyo: This is Based On Minicm6,,so yeah it uses a little older version. As with all froyo roms, this one provides good gaming performance. But again as it uses older version you won't get as much functionality as Gingerbread roms

Pros: Fast Gaming Performance, Light weight smooth Ui, Stable, One of the few Froyo roms that are still updated (Mainly because it fairly new)

Cons:Quite a few bugs, According to some there are better froyo roms, lets face it Froyo is oudated

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1447607


#14.Mini CM: This is another Classic Xperia X8 rom , Similiar to gingerdx its very Good. One of the fastest rom out there. It provides a pretty good performance when combined with Its own custom kernel. In my opinion it provides one of the best gingerbread Experience

Pros: Fast and Smoot, Great Gaming Peformance, All apps work without any problem, Light Framework, Huge community of people to discuss probs with

Cons: Needs Custom kernel, Some people claim it to be unstable

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1362585

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1222348
#15. Android Prime HD: Created By Haka(Who had a great amount of influence when it comes to improving Our X8) This rom is pretty good so far, the 2d and 3d performance is really good, Its new and so far it seems to be pretty stable, whatever bugs it used to have Haka is working hard and have fixed most of it, a must try for those want a clean rom

Pros: Simple and Light, Decent Fps In Games, Clean interface, improved performance, Regularly updated

Cons: OC Bug, Doesn't work with stock kernel anymore, Led notification bug, FC when multitasking

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1480404

###
Thinks To consider Before Flashing A custom Rom: If you have doubts about anything gain more knowledge about it by asking people in Xda. If you want to install roms that requiere Custom Kernels Make sure you know how to unlock your bootloader



Warning: If you do anything without being sure about it you might end up with a bricked phone, and Hard bricks cannot be fixed on your own

What would be useful is a list of pros and cons (or a list of what doesn't work) for each one.

For instance - i really like GingerCruzt, but can't get MMS to work on it.

GingerDX is an all rounder - but maybe has some battery drain issues (although Doixanh is really really improving it).

Just a thought

(and if anyone knows why MMS won't work on GingerCruzt, but works on my phone in GingerDX, please let me know!)

I have two propositions:
- tomek3pl H_Stock ROM. Has bloatware removed and contains good additions (App2SD e.g.) and a lot of people like stock :D
- HAKA's GingerFroyo, which is very careful with the battery.

No ROM will beat GingerDX

Fast Stable. No bugs for me . no wifi bugs no battery drain.

i use'd this since v003 and now im running v013 it's fast run's great game's like NFS SHIFT and PES 2011 great customisation;

only thing i dont like is stock launcher (launcher pro) i much more like Go Launcher more customisations more fun bit faster and more stable

Please listen

if you got an x8. get GingerDX v013 Get OCv004 put the module in

Overclock to 729Mhz

You Will NEVER be happy with another rom once you try GDX ! ! !

I was using gdx till v14. Agree with many - a great rom overall.
But since last 7 days I have used Fd v1.0.0 It has been an absolutely amazing experience. Fast, zippy, stable and I love the active launcher. I have not found a single bug, except one inconvenience that when you open contacts, sometimes it can take a little lag before opening; gardly a deal breaker !
Other than that my congrats and kudos to the developer on this amazing achievement.
P.S,: I have used maps while walking navigation last night in central london, phone was searching for signal in underground trains for 1 hour, used wi-fi and web browsing for 45 mins or so, fiddled with settings (ultrabrightness ticked), and still have got 40% left after 24 hours !

well you should make a backup before flashing you phone with a custom rom, that ensures that if nedded you can go back to its default rom,, Use Xrecovery to do that, Just in case you havent backed up your previous data but want the default rom and kernel back, just download the newest se kernel and flash it using flashtool..

If you just wanna try a different ROM, yes you can use xrecovery to make a back up of your actual ROM and install a new one, but
1.- it is not necessary that you flash any kernel, since there are already a lot of roms to try with no risk involved, such as unlocking bootloader etc.....
2.- at any given moment that you want to return to a brand new factory stock ROM, you just plug your phone with PC companion or SEUS and choose repair and you are done, this will unroot your phone and reset it at factory settings, any doubt just let me know

    Pros : Still considered the most stable Rom, Fast and Smooth Performance, Good app Performance, android 2.2 has greater app support, most features work without any problems, little or no bugs, one of the most famous rom so if you have any problem lot of people out there to help you

    Cons: Android 2.2 has become old many people prefer Android 2.3 over it. Not as Smooth as gdx when it comes to scrooling, according to some people Wifi does not work(it worked for me though)

    #2.Hackdroid: A decent rom, flashy and stylish, sometimes laggy. but overall a very good room. great for starters, however many people stated this one to be a little unstable , but it really depends on what apps you run if you are looking for a good looking rom with visual features this one is a pretty good choice

    Pros: Very Customizable, Decent Performance, Stable if you stick to normal apps, Has more features than most Roms

    Cons: A little Laggy, Sometimes Unstable, Many people have Reported bugs in this rom. Other Roms Offer Superior Performance


    #3.KuyaDroid: This one is an awesome rom, solid and stable, fast performance smooth menu and everything is decent. Its a good rom if your into gaming as it has built in Overclock, Undervolt, and gesture.(note these features can be manually added on other roms too). One more noticable thing about this rom is that it's core is cm7, and android version 2.3( a big update from the stock 2.1)

    #4.GingerDX: This is A cm6 - cm7 update of the Famous Froyobread, So far its fast and stable although a few bugs have been reported but its one of the most stable and working cm7 , android 2.3 roms around. its definitely worth a try if you want a fast and smooth working rom. also it has some pretty good features more than most roms out there to exact.

    #5.BehradGH: this one is a light and simple rom, not a bad choice for newbies but it does not have as much customizable features as the other roms, its a good rom for starters,, so if your looking for a simple rom and an upgrade from your stock rom you should try this one
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=955467

    Pros: Light Rom, Good for Average Daily apps, Simple rom without complications. Simple Upgrade from the Stock Rom

    Cons: Powerful Games Such As Nova, MC Sandstorm often Force closes, Some Reported Bugs, A little unstable while Performing Certain Operations

    #6.GingerCruzt: Just tested this Rom Recently , And boy was i surprised :), good performance and good looks, which is something very hard to get in one rom. in some cases better than GDX, but not as stable when running apps, but for normal daily use this one beats most of the roms out there. also it has a very similar look to the stock android. so if your into stock looks, try this out. also its android 2.3 /Cm7.

    Pros: New and fresh, Decent Performance and Features, Not bad for daily use, most apps work without problem, Android 2.3. the new look is unique(gc 8.1 and after)

    #8.GingerXperia: This rom is pretty good, and i actually find it to be even faster than gdx,Yes it lacks the features which gdx offers but if you can make do without those advanced features this is the rom for you, its also reported to be stable and smooth , its not bugfree though but hopefully it will be fixed on future updates

    Pros: Very fast, Simple Rom, Light weight, Good app performance, Stable Rom,

    Cons: Lacks some Features, some bugs, New so the community is still small, got worse with recent updates,the rom's creator used a lot of contents from other roms without taking permission from them(The issue seems to be resolved after V017)

    #9.Fd xperience: One of the better new roms, it has a stock look which is sure to attract many people, if you want to upgrade but do not want tolose your stock looks and yet have a stable upgraded rom this is the rom for you, its smooth and fast better than most roms out there, But it has some bugs and support issues, and i got some fc when playing games on it , other than that its very stable and fast

    Pros:Fast,Stock look, Stock apps, good app performance, Smooth scrooling,

    #10.Stornmix: This is a very recent rom, It has the looks. The framework is beautiful, However the visuals in my opinion has been given more importance than speed in this which makes it slow, and many people i asked said that it really lags when playing hd games. Otherwise the rom is reported to be stable soo far. very few bugs, and if your not into gaming this rom may be a good choice

    Pros: Looks Awesome, Fresh Look, Unique framework, Stable, Not many Bugs, Pretty Fast for daily use

    Cons: laggy for gaming, Very small community of people using, not as much customization as other famous roms, Still needs more work, camera doesnt work properly, Contact numbers are not visible

    Pros: Fast and stable, Built in ICS TRANSITIONS, Good app performance, Light

    Cons: Needs custom kernel to fully work(Hopefully will be fixed soon), Needs more testing, Very new and very little users

    #12:LinuXperia: This is a good rom, the creator has worked a lot and improved it from what it was, however many people have reported some problems and bugs. and there are some doubt about it being fully compatible with the stock kernel

    #13.AtiFroyo: This is Based On Minicm6,,so yeah it uses a little older version. As with all froyo roms, this one provides good gaming performance. But again as it uses older version you won't get as much functionality as Gingerbread roms

    Pros: Fast Gaming Performance, Light weight smooth Ui, Stable, One of the few Froyo roms that are still updated (Mainly because it fairly new)

    Cons:Quite a few bugs, According to some there are better froyo roms, lets face it Froyo is oudated

    ###
    Thinks To consider Before Flashing A custom Rom: If you have doubts about anything gain more knowledge about it by asking people in Xda. If you want to install roms that requiere Custom Kernels Make sure you know how to unlock your bootloader



    Warning: If you do anything without being sure about it you might end up with a bricked phone, and Hard bricks cannot be fixed on your own
