I have a problem with the swap partition on my device, Xperia arc. I flashed my device to "LT15i 4.1.B.0.431 Generic Global World" follow by this post. I found that lacking in memory so I tried to use swap partition and created 256 Linux swap partition on my SD card. But "free" commend still shows swap=0 However, I decided to use swapper 2. Still no effect and I couldn't get swap although swapper did its job without fail! After few days search I found that the kernel doesn't support the swap, So, I tried to use "Kernel.sin unpacked and added CWM options" form here. It also didn't work, neither "init.d zram scripts from wedgess" from the same page.
I flashed a THL W100 with sp tool and stupidly left the preloader checked, it finished all good and show me the green circle, but now it wont boot up and when i try to flash with any w100 rom it says the rom is not compatible with this device..
I used insecure boot and root trying to root my phone, which was a huge mistake as i noticed a few minutes later since i cant startup anymore and only get into bootloader.
Now I'm trying to flash my stock rom back.
My CID is VODAP102 and my Version is 126.96.36.199 so i downloaded the rom and tried "fastboot flash boot boot.img" the result is: sending 'boot' <8192 KB>... FAILED <data transfer failure <Unknown error>> finished. total time: 0.158s
I was just listening to some music and browsing FaceBook when my Xperia PLAY phone suddenly shut off last night I tried everything to make it start again, but nothing happends! I tried simply booting it up, removing the battery, tried Sony PC Companion and I even tried to flash it with FlashTool, but not even that would recognice it When I connect it to my PC while holding the BACK button, the phone actually shows up on my PC, but I still can't get it to work Ill try flashing it with FlashTool again, since I'm on a different PC now, but I think I'm going to have som trouble finding the drivers for QHUSB_LOAD

im new in android and a couple hours ago i try to instal beanstalk - legacy kitkat 4.4 and they suggest to download kernel from dark raven "dark kernel cm11.0" 11DarkUrushi20131130 after that im flash the kernel and something happen....
my phone dont boot up and the logo dont appear
im try to connect to flash tool but still dont get it...
last night i rooted my phone and it was perfect but today i saw an video on youtube showing how to make status bar transperent like android 4.4 in that video he said it is a app runs on rooted device .the app name was framework some thing like that i opened that app and clicked on frame work it ask me to grant root access i gave it and clicked on install/update and first time it restarted after restarting it once again i opened that app and did the same process .then thhe output was successfully created new partition and restarted and got stuck on boot loop and i cannot do any thing when i connect it to pc for pc companion the pc is not recognising the device.
I unlocked my bootloader a month before and I didn't know how to relock it back so I searched and found this website >>androidgadgematic I followed everything it mentioned and after finished installation, I hold on the boot button, the green light indicator blinked once and vibrated once but after that gave no respond. I didn't unroot my phone before doing the relock procedure. Now, I really don't know what to do because I searched google but none. I indeed need a step by step procedure to save my phone. How to boot my phone now, or else it is dead. I don't have if any method to reinstall ALL system files, no matter kernel, firmwares via my pc as long as it can helo my phone to boot up.
i am not able enter flash mode in my X10i device i wanted to flash kernel.
I followed all the procedure: 1) by holding back button & plugged in USB cable. 2) my phone got recognized in the flash tool. Got a message stating "Device connected in flash mode" 3) then my device did not stay much longer in flash mode (less then 10 sec). After that it automatically booted to phone charging screen.
below is log generated in flash tool, when i tried to flash the kernel:
26/026/2013 07:26:07 - INFO - Selected kCernel-CM9-v03.ftf 26/026/2013 07:26:07 - INFO - Preparing files for flashing 26/026/2013 07:26:07 - INFO - Please connect your device into flashmode.
I am currently running BH2 1.6 no twiz. I was thinking on trying the galazy 1.6 but on the BH2 1.6 no twiz thread. It says that flash boot and phone only once, why? I want to go back to 1.5. should I only flash PDA? Why BH_MAN says only flash boot, phone once?
I try to understand android boot sequence on my JB (under CM10). I found some docs and there should be specific partitions (boot, recovery, system, cache, data).
My understanding of the boot sequence is now:
A) normal boot: 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) boot-partition where i flashed the kernel aka boot.img -> 4a) system-partition with the OS (libs, UI, etc) where i unpacked over CWM my customROM.zip -> 4b) data-partition, where i unpacked google-apps.zip and installed all the apps -> 4c) cache-partition with user data
B) recovery boot (adb reboot recovery): 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) recovery-partition with CWM where i may unpack all the .zip stuff to proper partitions, or restore from sdcard, etc.
Is this correct? I wonder, because i didn't installed CWM into recovery-partition. It cames from install of CM10 (fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img), so it must be in boot-partition and not in recovery?
So, next confusion: i looked up to /proc/mtd and i don't see neither boot nor recovery partition here:
I did a backup with CWM and loocked the data. There aren't boot, and recovery backups:
# ls -lha /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-10-04.18.49.55/ d---rwxr-x 2 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:56 . d---rwxr-x 3 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:49 .. ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 1.6K Oct 4 18:54 .android_secure.vfat.dup ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 54.6M Oct 4 18:55 cache.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 360.2M Oct 4 18:53 data.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 212 Oct 4 18:56 nandroid.md5 ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 214.6M Oct 4 18:51 system.yaffs2.img #
So, i think i didn't understand the boot sequence and partition schema corectly.
Instead of seeing the boring old Android logo or my service provider's logo, I'd love to see the standard text-based Linux boot screen that shows the status of all the hardware and configuration info as my phone boots. My current phone is an HTC EVO 3D running Cool ICS with Sense 3.6 and Revolutionary CWM.
Installed flash 10.1 today and since then...won't boot up at times, screen orientation won't switch, lock-ups, pages hang, multiple reboots etc. How do I uninstall this? I've looked on the phone and tried to research online without any luck so I have turned to to the real experts. Help! Thanks in advance.
I got my x10 yesterday and played all day long. Everything was fine untill I try to upgrade the software.I used Sony Update Service software and it give error at the middle of the process.Now, I got explanation point on my screen when I turn it on. I can't do anything.Any ideas, how to fix?
Just upgraded my wifes X10 mini (unbranded UK version) using the SE PC Compaion. Followed all instructions etc, but its now stuck in a boot loop, restarting just after the full screen coloured animation "spins" into the SE logo and text.
I'm really struggling with the camera on the x10. I was expecting going from tocca ultra to SE, (both 8.1) to be quite similar in quality, but this ain't the case. Picture is half the size of the screen and pics during night are awful!! Cant even seem to find the flash.
