KitKat Ported Over to Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-X10

Some devices are simply legendary. This isn’t a matter of age, tech specs, size, and so on. Rather, they are great devices with tons of development support that are still used after many have moved on to newer devices. Obviously there’s the legendary HTC HD2, but another such device is the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, the company’s first “real” flagship.

Despite having a locked bootloader, the X10 received some serious love from developers. Needless to say that XDA Recognized Developer FXP (known back then as jerpelea) started rewriting system libraries. As a result, FreeXperia started to support more and more devices. And now, almost every Sony phone has a custom versio. . . READ ON »

Xperia X10 Camera Mod Brings Camera Improvements and More

yjyqu5em

On many older devices, most developers focus on updating the device to the latest version of Android. As we’ve seen before, really old devices are still getting updates. Does that mean that development comes to a halt for those stuck on stock ROMs? Not at all. Sony Xperia X10 users now have a camera mod for their stock ROM to help make the most of the device’s 8MP shooter and Zeiss glass.

The mod was released by XDA Senior Member FeraVolt. It adds several fun features to the camera, while improving the overall camera experience. In addition, there are some mods to try to help improve general phone performance as well. The feature list includes:

- BraviaEngine
– AudioShutter Fix
– FPS U

Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 Hits the Sony Xperia X10

Xperia X10

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 owners can start to get excited, as the device now has a CyanogenMod 10 ROM, albeit in a very pre-alpha state. With only 384 MB of RAM and a single core 1 GHz CPU, the Xperia X10 is one of those devices you just don’t expect to see running Android’s latest 4.1 Jelly Bean.

XDA Senior Member scritch007 is the developer responsible for the ROM. Having previously released CyanogenMod 9 for the X10, he is using the same knowledge in order to get the CM10 ROM up and running.

The ROM is in a beta state, so it’s safe to assume it’s not ready for every day use quite yet. There are a number of main issues listed:

  • HotSpot
  • CamCorder
  • Native Camera Glitches in display

How To Download and Compile ICS From Source

android ice cream sandwich

One of the coolest things about guides and tutorials on XDA is that many of them can be used on multiple Android devices. Usually, it’s a modification or a script that can be installed on devices with similar hardware and software but sometimes a truly fun guide or tutorial is compatible for pretty much everyone.

This is the case with a method posted by paul-xxx, who originally posted the process to allow users of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 to compile ICS from source using a method originally posted by Dastin1015. The first half of the process, however, can be extrapolated for just about anyone who wants to give compiling Android Ice Cream Sandwich a shot. For aspiring developers, compiling AOSP is alwa. . . READ ON »

Get the Xperia Play Gaming Experience on the Xperia X10

Xperia X10

As virtually everyone knows, one of the coolest features of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is, without a doubt, it’s ability to play Playstation games. The capacity to play old favorites on an Android phone and have that nifty controller just sounded like such a good idea. The sad part being that not many other phones can share in the Playstation love.

For users of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, you can kiss those days of incompatibility goodbye. XDA Senior Member DiKeJ has been able to successfully port the Playstation certifications and the Xperia Play launcher to the X10, allowing users the same look, feel and access to Playstation games that the Xperia Play has.

The modification is pretty straightforwa. . . READ ON »

Xperia X10 Gets ICS Port

ICS X10

Looks like the end of the year is not coming without joy for thousands of people and members of the xda community. In this particular case, we see that the Xperia X10 owners are getting their hands on the future of Android a little early in the game. Sony devices getting unofficial updates is particularly a joyous occasion as they are normally, along with Motorola device owners, among the last to normally get their hands on any kind of useful ports, mainly due to the ridiculous locks placed on these devices by manufacturers. Despite all this, the great devs on the X10 are able to bring you the best of the latest from Google. XDA Recognized Developer zdzihu has just released an alpha port of AOSP ICS, and as such it ha. . . READ ON »

Sony Gets Some ICS (SDK) Love As Well On The X10

ICS on Xperia

Ports of the much anticipated ICS are popping up across xda-developers. However, the Sorrow owners were feeling a bit left out, particularly the X10 owners. Well, if you were feeling a bit blue about this, worry no more because thanks to XDA member erenz1202 as well as several other devs, this OS was finally ported to the Xperia X10. Now, there are a few caveats like the fact that the touchscreen doesn’t work. You have to keep in mind that this is from the SDK and as such, the ports are less than perfect at this point in time. Once the real thing hits the streets, we will likely see far better development not just for the X10, but for every device out there.

The dev has posted a video as proof that the OS actually boot. . . READ ON »

Re-Lock Your XPERIA X10 Bootloader!

Cellular phone locked illustrating security, privacy and safety

Yesterday we wrote about how the XPERIA X8 and X10 bootloaders had been unlocked by XDA forum member the_laser. Now from the same developer, we present a treat to those who unlocked their bootloaders a bit too hastily.

This tool allows users to re-lock their bootloaders for warranty purposes. The only requirements are flash-mode USB drivers and, of course, yesterday’s unlocked bootloader. In the words of the developer:

Greetings.
