    AOKP JB is not downloading plz help me give me download jb link for tipo

    • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

      The download link works for me.Try downloading from some other browser

  • Max

    Does the above procedures work with a tipo dual with 11.0.A.6.5 firmware?

    Thanks.

    • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

      yes. But the gsm and sim wont work.

  • Bart

    Is it normal if the first boot takes longer than 5-10 minutes? I just flashed it, and it’s taking a very long time. Still not loaded. I’m starting to hate that unicorn lol.

    • Bart

      It’s Miro btw, forgot to add.

      • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

        Yes, it’s normal. Did it boot?

        • Bart

          Yes, it did. But I can’t get past the phone.apk error when the SIM unlock menu opens. It pops up maybe 6-7 times, and then it disappears (rebooting doesn’t fix anything). And when I put in my SIM pin code, it just goes back to the unicorn loading logo.
          Please help.

          • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

            Check if you have downloaded the zip for MESONA only and then try a completely clean install.

          • Bart

            Yep man, I did it 3 times.
            No change.

  • Devel

    I installed milestone1-r3 on my tipo but it doesn’t boot. Only the LED flashes but no progress from there on. I wiped everything before installation. I had CM10 installed before. help plz!!

    • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

      Did you wipe data and follow the instructions carefuuly?

      • Bart

        I installed it on my Mesona after having a stock ROM, rooted and unlocked bootloader. Followed the instructions to the letter, and it stucks on flashing red LED randomly. I’m afraid it’s the rom man.

        • Benjamin Moughton

  • Benjamin Moughton

  • Benjamin Moughton

    WHAT THE HELL HAVE YOU DONE TO MY PHONE?!?!?!?!?! IT WONT START UP!

    • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

      I have read loads of comments that you have posted. Did it boot? If not, then restore the backup that you made earlier. It will all be same again

      • Bart

        It doesn’t work on Miro/Mesona.
        That is all.

        • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

          Use r2. Maybe that will work

          • Bart

            It bootloops on the “phone.apk has crashed” error. And the error doesn’t go away after rebooting.

          • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

            Okay

  • KAYA

    How do i instal AOKP JB with twrp? Cant i just install the zip file?

    • KAYA

      On my xperia tipo

      • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

        Yes you can but I strongly recommend you to use clockworkmod recovery.

  • Bart

    So Tech, any updates on when or if the r2 and/or r3 version will work on Miro?

    • http://www.techgeekal.com Tech Geekal

      Hopefully soon.

      • Bart

        Okay, thanks for the response.

    • Techgeekal

      You have to go into recovery mode. Press vol + button
