CM7 Gingerbread Available For the Sony Xperia X8

Most manufacturers will likely not offer a Gingerbread update for their devices (with a few high-end device exceptions), and Sony is not the exception. This is the motivation for people like XDA member jerpelea, to start looking into porting the OS onto other devices. In this case, the dev managed to get a rather good and stable build of CM7 running on the Sony Xperia X8. Of course, as with any ports, there are things that are still being worked on by the dev such as camera, some of the sensors, as well as a few other things. However, all basic functionality should be good for daily use.

If you have any feedback for the dev, find any bugs, or simply would like to help in the porting process, please let him know.

DEVELOPMENT (we need to write sources for)
-libril (done)
-bt (done)
-wifi (done)
-libaudio (almost ready – audio not routed corectly)
-fm (almost ready – now roking corectly due to libaudio)
-camera (almost ready – VGA LIMITED)
-lights (almost ready – not working backlight)
-sensors (almost ready – not working lightsensor and proximity)

You can find more information in the rom thread.
