Xperia X10 Gets Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Port

by on November 22, 2011

IceCream Sandwich

Google’s release of Android Ice Cream Sandwich source code has already brought many ICS 4.0 based builds for most powerful android devices. Currently the available custom ROMs for ICS 4.0 are not 100% working on older devices which means majority of features are still not supported. Now, another Alpha build for AOSP ICS 4.0 has been released by one of the XDA Developer zdzihu Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 devices but just like other ICS ports, only few functions are reported to working properly.  Therefore, So we strongly suggest you to wait for the more stable version.

Procedure

[KERNEL]
- ol’ good 2.6.29-SEMC
- fixed touchscreen driver (now backward-compatibile with Gingerbread)

[ROM]
- partially based on drewis release (thanks!) – currently I don’t have access to PC that could handle compilation of the whole thing 
If someone could compile clean es209ra build and upload it would be awesome.

[WORKING]
- it boots 
- radio, calls, txt (sms)
- audio partially working (in-call is fine, playing mp3/ringtones leads to WLOD)
- bluetooth, GPS seem to work
- wifi almost working (“can’t find wlan0 device”)
- mobile data (it gets IP but disconects afterwards, needs investiagtion)

[NOT WORKING]
- most of the stuff does not work
- quite unstable
