I just installed busybox and then my phone is rebooting again and again!!

What can I do to stop it?

I don't know how to boot it into recovery. I did it once (before I installed busybox) by clicking the back button when it's starting, but it's not working now.

I tried to do it from quick boot (while my phone stays on for a minute or less) but it doesn't work.

I have xperia x10 rooted to android 2.2 with cyanogenmod 6

    Yup man. SEUS is Sony Ericsson Update Service. You must have a PC with internet to do this. Download that software from sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/detailed/…. Install it and follow the steps.

    After installation just follow the steps. But before even doing that back up all your data. You will loose everything with this installation.

    I guess the following are the steps.Turn off the phone, run SEUS until you are asked to connect the phone Now connect the phone to your PC do not turn the phone on Hold the back key and insert the USB do not let go of the back key until told to do so SEUS will auto detect your phone at this point.

    Follow the steps here. Check the step no-6. It shows the install option even your phone has the updated software. guidingtech.com/mobiles/…

Try holding the "Back" key while turning the phone on.

It sounds as if the phone is in a boot loop. Why did you need to install Busybox in the first place? CyanogenMod (and most other custom ROMs) already has it included. I would recommend re-flashing CM6 again.

  • i was/am trying to reinstall the rom cause its not working properly,followed a thread,that was the first step. holding the back button doesnt work!!
