Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 Hits the Sony 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

But to counter that, there is also a large list of working features:

  • Gallery (only pictures)
  • Airplane mode (When leaving airplane mode, it asks for sim code. Just click on reject button)
  • halt and reboot
  • Bluetooth
  • GSM/Data
  • Wifi
  • Default Camera with glitches

Due to the fact that scritch007 is still in fact working on the CM9 ROM, development on the CM10 ROM may take time, so don’t expect it to be fully functional anytime soon.

If you want to try the ROM in it’s alpha state, or feel you can help develop it further, check out the ROM thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
