Unofficial CM10 Builds for the One S, X10 Mini, and X8

The march of Jelly Bean 2012 has been a massive success. With dozens of devices getting ports that at least boot and even more scheduled to get them, Jelly Bean has been like a party that everyone is invited to. Well, the fun hasn’t stopped yet. In fact, it hasn’t even appeared to have slowed down, as even more devices are getting Jelly Bean one way or another. The most recent legion of devices include the HTC One S, the Sony Xperia X10 Mini and the Sony Xperia X8.

XDA Senior Member fipsib, posted CM10 running on XDA for the One S which was developed by XDA Senior Member xkonni with help from XDA Forum Member intervigil. For the Xperia X10 Mini and X8, the JBMiniProject lays claim and includes XDA Recognized Developer stelios97, XDA Senior Member Daveee10, and XDA Senior Member Xmaster8, with the help of a few others.

The One S CM10 is quite functionally complete, with only a few features not working. These include the camera, USB Tethering, and a few quirky issues like echos during phone calls. Many of the issues have hotfixes that haven’t been merged into the ROM yet. But aside from a few little glitches, the ROM is actually quite usable.

It’s much the same on the X10 Mini, with WiFi, Camera, and Mic being the biggest issues. The X8 is a little behind, missing features like data, WiFi, Mic, Camera, and several more. These Xperia builds probably can’t yet be used as daily drivers, at least not until a few more things are fixed. However, they are certainly off to a great start. While we don’t normally write about tales from the grapevine, the word around is that the X10 Mini Pro is also getting a CM10 port pretty soon.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
