Ice Cream Sandwich Running on Sony X8, X10 Mini & X10 Mini Pro

Sony’s Xperia range of devices are incredibly popular. While some of them may be considered as older devices, they still see a good amount of development activity. Since the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich, users have been patiently awaiting the delivery of stable ROMs suitable for daily use. Enter XDA Senior Member paul-xxx, who has managed to port CM9 to the X8, X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro.

Although the X10 Mini has already been graced with Android 4.0 in the form a very alpha AOSP ROM and a build of MIUI4 by XDA Senior Member stelios97, the X8 and Mini Pro are only now receiving their first taste of Ice Cream Sandwich which is stable enough for daily use.

Functionality seems to be pretty complete across all three devices. It is always nice when it’s easier list what’s not working as opposed to what is. That list of currently known issues is as follows:

  • Camera
  • Hardware / Software Video Decoder
  • FM Radio
  • DHCP over WiFi

Although there is a slight issue with the WiFi, paul has provided a link to a YouTube video explaining exactly how to overcome this and installation of the ROM is as simple as flashing the zip via recovery. After that, you’re all set for the 4.0 experience.

Those looking to get started should make their way to the X8X10 Mini, and X10 Mini Pro threads.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
