Xperia X10 Camera Mod Brings Camera Improvements and More
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:
– AudioShutter Fix
– FPS Uncap
– Enchanced Bass
– Init.d autorunner
– Updated Busybox
– One init.d tweak:
– Increased JPEG quality
– Enabled support of Bravia Engine
– Misc encoder tweaks
– Vm CacheDrop
– Panorama tweaks
– Modified Camera App:
– Changed all res images to newer ones
– Decreased camera wait delay
– Decreased Video service delay
– Increased Sound Quality
– Increased Image capturing speed
– Decreased Face Detection delay
– App Opening speed increased
– Video Capturing quality increased
– Audio Codec quality increased
– DoubleChannel audio recording (but mono sound)
– Image quality increase
– Decreased all possible UI delays
– Decreased all possible HW-SW i/o relation delays
– Audio quality set to original in apk (was causing problems)
– Recent media thumbnail quality increased
– Fixed init.d tweak
– Added another Panorama capturing app
– Added NeoReader app
– Raised Video capturing fps limit from 24 to 30
It’s a really long feature list for a simple camera mod, and many will find the increased camera quality and panorama mods to be especially pleasing. If you’re still on a stock Xperia X10 ROM and want to improve camera performance, as well as apply some additional tweaks, this is a good mod to try out.

The lockscreen is a part of the OS that we see hundreds of times every day, whether we're using Android or iOS. The look of the lockscreen depends on the Android version, device manufacturer or ROM chef. In short, it differs for almost every user. Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989.

Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
