Tweak for CyanogenMod7 ROMs on the Xperia X8 Adds Faster Experience and New Features
The unspoken motto of the modification world is that there is always more work to be done. No mod is ever complete, no tweak is ever the end-all be-all and no work is perfect. That’s why mods and tweaks exist, to make it all just a little bit better.
It is with this in mind that XDA Senior Member jimdem has released a tweak package for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 that takes the insanely popular CyanogenMod and, dare we say, makes it even better. The tweak package contains a number of modifications and very easy to install. Simply place the downloaded .zip file on your SD card and flash in ClockworkMod Recovery.
The features are plentiful, and include:
More free ram (Thanks to Juwe ramscript)
Better audio quality in videos
Instant GPS lock (GR users)
XLOUD Sound Drivers
Faster screen rotation
Better battery life
Keyboard type Xperia Stock
Clock Ice Cream Sandwich
Dialer type Xperia stock
So a few nice theme elements and a few fun additions and tweaks to make the experience smoother and more fun. Additionally, there is a Lite version that does not include any visual tweaks, just the stuff under the hood so there’s no worries if someone doesn’t want to mess up their theme.
For additional information, instructions and download links, you can find everything you need in the original thread. Also, don’t forget to make a backup before flashing anything, just in case something goes wrong.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
