CyanogenMod 7 (Gingerbread) hits the Xperia X8The devs over at xda have been hard at work on getting CyanogenMod 7 (which includes Android 2.3.3) working on the Xperia X8. It has moved on from an alpha release earlier in the month to an RC2 (Release Candidate) release.

The latest v005 custom Rom includes a Wi-Fi fix that was missing on previous ROMs, but camera issues remain (limited to VGA). Also the light and proximity sensors are not working right now. If you want to try this for yourself, check out the xda thread here.

you guys are really lacking with posting worthy information …
this is just an other post like, go check it out it @ bla bla.
nobody cares about a mod that lacks in everything and if they do, they will get it from xda
not from this blog …

Why is this on the X10 blog?

I like that they give info about progress of some good roms, because I do not check xda forums and find it useful to keep myself up to date whats going on in that section via this blog.

Gingerbread also has come to mini and mini pro with froyo for all devices (mini, mini pro and x8) hitting a quite stable pace.

and by the way, they have updated this x8 gingerbread days ago.

I think this is a great blog post. Personally I’m always at a loss when it comes to finding a good ROM for my X10 mini pro, there are just so many alternatives.

And this is on the X10 blog because the X8 is part of the X10 series, believe it or not.

This ROM is great. Visualy Gingerbread is jusy awsome. I had only one problem with this ROM, Skype is not working. It throw an error and then even reboot the phone. But I guess it is not exactly problem of this ROM, it is probably problem of Skype and its gingerbread compatibility.
