Sony Ericsson X10 Joins The Honeycomb Club
It looks like the beedroid has been setting up hives in devices other than tabs because we have seen ports left and right for devices going back as far as the Vogue! Even if it is just a port for an SDK, some of our devs have done wonders when it came to making this into a quasi functional port of Honeycomb. This time, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 receives the gift of the port thanks to the efforts of XDA member Chumby_666. The dev has done a fantastic job for this pre-Alpha release that has been put out for consumption. Again, please note that the build is a pre-Alpha, so a lot of the main, basic components that you may use as a daily tool are likely not functional. However, the dev has gone leaps and bounds by enabling some key functionality such as experimental Wifi, touchscreen, GPS, keyboard, lockscreen, and much more. The only caveat at this point is that the device will likely reboot every 10 seconds or so due to an issue with the sensor’s libs.
If you would like to see how the blue bee can give a neon touch to your device, please take it for a spin and leave some feedback. Also, bug reports accompanied by logcats are highly appreciated!
So this is pre-Alpha of HoneyComb SDK port for X10 …
Reboots every 5-6 seconds due problems with lights or sensors lib.
Till now [ seen in that short gui mode ] working:
- wifi [ i’m to slow to enter in menu ] [ so needs testing ]
- touch screen
- sdcard [ doesn’t mount need correct vold binary ]
- gsm [ should work after few lib replacements ]
You can find more information in the port thread.
