HOWTO

to flash cm7 rom you have to take 3 steps (after unpacking the 7z archive)

step 1 - copy update.zip and GAPPS ADDON to sdcard

step 2 - flash new kernel (always use the kernel provided in CM7 / it is incompatible with stock ROM)

ON PC - run fastboot flash boot boot.img (an black window will open and will stay open untill kernel is flashed)
ON PHONE - put phone in fastboot mode (power off then press lower right key and plug usb cable) and phone LED will light BLUE

step 3
- when phone is booting (FreeXperia Logo) press volume down key several times to enter recovery
- choose apply update from sdcard and select rom
- choose apply update from sdcard and select GAPPS
- wipe device
- reboot


DOWNLOAD
Look in my signature !
please don't mirror (we want to have download conunt)

Just flashed this ROM, everything looks good and working except:

- the hardware keyboard mapping is out. Alphabets are fine, it is the numbers and punctuations that is a mess. w=1 e=2 r=3 s=4 etc tried using the build-in keyboard changer but didnt help

- if I go to landscape and then back to portrait, the call, application drawer and browser shortcut which is at the bottom of the desktop will disappear. it takes a reboot to bring it back

- Tried to get the battery icon to change using UOT kitchen by uploading the apk file from the zip package but it doesn't seem to work.

so far that's it.

thanks for the effort

Thank You freeXperia!!

This is awesome! Thanks for your hard work on the Xperia Pro :D

Donation coming your way from me
(edit: donation away!)

I have 2 questions:
1) does nandroid work in this recover?

2) My phone's a stock phone from Fido in Canada. I've unlocked the bootloader and rooted the phone. When I go to Settings > About Phone, my Build Number at the very bottom says "4.0.A.2.335"

How do I get SEMC 4.0.1.A.0.283?? I'd really like to use CM7!

upgrade to 4.0.2.A.0.42 released

FXP044 rom will come monday

Thanks for posting the link to 4.0.2.A.0.42. The previous rom link was missing.

Will this ROM work on my phone even though I've got an MK16a, and not an MK16i? I'm from Canada using a Fido phone, so I want to make sure my phone's Radio will work properly...this ROM is from the UK, so I'm not sure.

Just asking because on the Motorola Milestone, which I upgraded from, you had to select a different radio depending on which country you lived in.


Why do we even need to flash 4.0.2.A.0.42? Is CM7 not a complete ROM replacement? It is on the Milestone - doesn't matter what version you're coming from since CM7 replaced everything.

And FYI, the 10EUR donation was from me ;)
Hope it goes to good use!

That would be great if you could post an SEMC update for the mk16a. One that will work in Canada ;)


One final question: Is it possible to do a full nandroid backup prior to applying these updates, so that if I want to return to stock, I can?

I was thinking hotboot a recovery via fastboot, then take the nandroid, and then flash the SEMC update, and finally flash CM7.

The nandroid backup makes backup only of the TDs(/system,/data,etc), but it doesn't backups the kernel. As it's the same android & kernel version, it's mos probable the FXP kernel will work with the stock ROM, but I'm not sure.

Edit: I saw the Bi4ry post, and it says the stock ROM is not compatible with FreeXperia kernel.

Tried to use this instead of the official CM7 from cyanogenmod site but after boot.img it doesn't boot anymore and I can't enter CWM recovery....

You said you'd post the link for the SEMC 'a' update....still waiting ;)
Any idea when that will be? Sorry for being impatient. I just miss CM7 and can't wait to get it on this phone

Not to be rude, but... When will the FXP044 will be ready? I'm waiting for it. I used a unofficial port of CM7 on my old U20a, and it was really good, so I can't wait to try something better on my MK16a.

Also, will the update to 4.0.2.A.0.42 will be necessary anyway? Which part does the ROM would depend on it?

If I have the rom up and running without radio issues even tho I flashed from the latest lt15i fw and not from the "required" lt18i Rom, is there then any reason to do the extra effort and flash the lt18i one?

This thread is about the Xperia Pro MK16a/i. Not the lt18 or lt15. It's only here because us Pro users don't have a forum of our own yet.
