Camera Fix for ICS ROMs on the Xperia X10

Xperia X10

Some may have noticed that often times, many source-built ROMs seem to have that one annoying issue that keeps them from being perfect. Solving this issue can take months and include a number of developers, testers, and contributors. However, when that fix finally does come, it’s awesome. In most cases, the annoying issue is usually something like Bluetooth, Camera, or in the case of Sprint phones, WiMAX. For the Sony Xperia X10, the camera was the issue. Now, there’s a fix.

XDA Forum Member scritch007 has released a fix that should help the camera start working on AOSP-derived ICS builds. As scritch007 explains:

All-in-One Xperia S Experience for the Xperia X10 Mini

X10

If you own a Sony Xperia device, there’s a good chance you can run the software from many other Xperia devices. In fact, we’ve written about it a number of times. There is now a way for Xperia X10 owners to run pretty much the entire interface from the Sony Xperia S.

Sony Xperia X10 Gets New Life From Xperia S Port

se-xperia-x10-new-1

The Sony Xperia X10 was one of Sony Ericsson’s first forays into the Android smartphone world, and it’s been a solid product over the years. It originally shipped with Android 1.6 Donut and has since been updated to Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread as recently as Fall 2009. That’s almost 2 full years from when the device was originally released.
