In short, you will most likely lose all your data, because: You have to unlock your bootloader when you install a third party ROM. Unlocking the bootloader will erase all your data. The new installation might not be able to decrypt your data. Even if it would work, it is still not recommended to keep all the data when installing a different version or make ...

Maybe a bug in the ROM, a lot of ROMs come with bugs which is why you should choose well built ones, like cyanogen mod, You could always try reverting to your previous ROM is you don't get this fixed.

The IMEI is the International Mobile Equipment Identification, which you MUST have to connect to the cellphone network. If you don't have an IMEI you can't call anybody. The IMEI isn't wiped by performing a data reset because it is being held in a separate partition called /efs, modem or modemst - the Name of the partition depends on your phone's brand. ...

You should wipe the data once, when you start. This may not be necessary if you are (for example) only flashing a recovery, flashing a very similar ROM, etc. You shouldn't need to erase images/partitions before flashing over them.

If I had been in your situation, I would go for flashing stock rom onto the device and re-root it. Later, I would flash a custom recovery and do a Nandroid backup. After that, I would install apps like Link2SD (my personal favorite) to do the system apps uninstallation/moving to sd card. So the bottom line is to download the stock rom for your device (XDA ...

Unfortunately I won't be trying the OS upgrade as the phone hardware only supports Bluetooth 2.1+EDR (see page 9 here http://www-support-downloads.sonymobile.com/c1505/whitepaper_EN_c1505_xperia_e.pdf) Thanks for the advice about doing the software upgrade, hopefully it will be useful for someone else!

Nevermind guys, I've solved it. I got an XT1053 T-Mobile Retail image from internet. Flashed it with RSD Lite. Now my XT1060 is XT1053 and everything works fine.

I lost root and TWRP, but wasn't too ...

We cannot have cross-platform ROM's from other device.But We can only install the custom roms which are dedicated for our devices. For this you can follow " http://forum.xda-developers.com/ " ; by selecting your device appropriately you can get multiple Custom roms.

This is not possible. The XT1060 for Verizon is a CDMA phone with GSM world-compatible capabilities. The XT1053 is their unlocked GSM-only model. It would lack support for the Verizon-specific CDMA functionality that would allow it to work on your network. ROMs are very much, permanently, dependent on their device and can't generally be shifted to another ...

Sooooo, it's pretty late but for anyone facing the same problem: I switched the battery and everything was working. I also got another log where it said something like no battery and shutting down, the same as when removing the battery while the phone is powered on.
