First photos of official SE Gingerbread update for Xperia X10

Xperia X10 with GingerbreadSome of the first photos of the official Sony Ericsson Android Gingerbread update for the Xperia X10 have been leaked by a user over at Chinese site ePrice. The images show the X10 running a launcher similar to the Xperia arc and the settings show it is running Android 2.3.3 with a 2.1.60 baseband and 2.6.29 kernel.

The user goes on to say that the update is quite stable and could be launched sooner than expected. However, he says it won’t be as smooth as the Xperia arc with the Neocore benchmark not exceeding 30fps. This could be a fake, but we’d say it’s probably an early build of the official Gingerbread update given the baseband. Check out some photos after the jump.

3 David April 28, 2011 at 7:47 PM

Woow! 😀

stupid SE!!!! why u still keep FPS CAP? atleast take the FPS cap to 60fps like the ARC…

5 rojdag April 28, 2011 at 8:14 PM

fps cap will be dealt with by xda devs, theyve already removed it via custom kernel for existing roms, it no biggy.

6 Stan.S April 28, 2011 at 8:29 PM

I can not wait for this to be released. After giving it a try if it’s not up to the task then a custom rom on the updated kernel.

7 b50 April 28, 2011 at 9:09 PM

I don’t care. Never SE again. Samsung S2 is bettet on everything.

8 marius April 28, 2011 at 10:32 PM

fake!!! the search widget does not have voice search, and the baseband,ker nel,firmware version text can be edited in build.prop in ~2 min :)), it`s only a skin!!!

9 cody April 29, 2011 at 1:26 AM

IF this is real, why wouldn’t se update the kernal past .29? Smells fishy.

10 Damian April 29, 2011 at 1:59 AM

It looks a bit different than other gingerbread+ they keep on with the same old crap icons and the arc launcher…it does look like a fake if you look at the notif bar ,it probably is some xda stuff in development

11 ryejuan April 29, 2011 at 2:36 AM

Seen xperia arc used it almost the same as x10. Sadly but going to choose atrix over arc. 🙁

12 jake April 29, 2011 at 3:47 AM

29 kernel? why? do you know korean version motorola xt720(motoroi)? it froyo version is kernel 29, its terrible. most motoroi user give up froyo because, that is not better than eclair. i don’t wanna believe it. if it is true, i naver again to buy for sony’s phone. and i hope it is not just true.

Hi everybody,
the score in Quadrant is not too slow! This sample gets 1251 as score; look the chinese characters near this number, they mean “your device” 😉

14 Jasmin April 29, 2011 at 7:53 AM

when we get?

15 Jim April 29, 2011 at 10:14 AM

Who cares, my contract is now up for renewal and my next phone won’t be a SE!!!!!

16 john April 29, 2011 at 11:47 AM

it suck.! why SE still keep their stupid FPS LOCK? NO MORE SE @!!

17 john April 29, 2011 at 11:48 AM

I hope this is totally FAKE THING..!

18 Xperia84 April 29, 2011 at 12:43 PM

Its a fake, the signal image should be green if it is a real gingerbread.
This is only 2.1 with ARC theme and modded build.prop
Or the ARC ROM ported to X10 with modded build.prop..

19 rami April 29, 2011 at 4:00 PM

Hope tha gingerbread is good for xperia 🙂 if it ruins camera like roms at xda, that is bad thing.

20 RaDi April 29, 2011 at 5:29 PM

i think its only TMR arc Rom !

you can See kernal , its only 2.6.29 !

any officil Ging. will be with 2.6.32 at least !

21 x10 warrior April 29, 2011 at 8:44 PM

22 Fat Mother Fucker April 30, 2011 at 6:17 PM

Warrior, if se sucks and you have a dreadful galaxy then why the fuck do you whore this website? You truly are a complete retard with a pathetic little brain.

23 Kang May 1, 2011 at 12:30 AM

Xperia84// Even Arc looks exactly same.

24 lukesjeans May 1, 2011 at 1:57 AM

I am pretty sure its a fake with 2.1 theme:

1. Quadrant needs data to get results
2. Settings background is 2.1
3. Second picture looks badly cropped where dock is

only my opinion but can be an early build 🙂

25 bondo May 1, 2011 at 9:53 AM


26 Gab May 1, 2011 at 10:42 PM

weird the arc and play are only 2.3.2

27 tbc May 2, 2011 at 11:57 AM

Shouldn’t they make the touchscreen buttons to match the x10?
Unlike the new xperia range the menu and return keys are reversed on the x10.

28 greggins May 2, 2011 at 6:13 PM

what happened to the 2.1 multitouch update?? im on orange uk and still havnt got it.

29 WTF May 3, 2011 at 1:55 PM

definitely a fake…. no real leaker would run quadrant jus to prove he’s running gingerbread…. its more like he would show the features rather than showing off benchmarks which is pretty much useless in real world situations…. its prob a custom rom screen which there are like tons of these out there…..

30 Lex May 4, 2011 at 12:28 AM

It has been released… Try checking by plugging into your PC and using SE companion. If it still doesn’t update then it may be that orange haven’t released it and you will have to go to a generic ROM.

31 Phillip Smith May 4, 2011 at 8:12 AM

Erm, they still using kernel 2.6.29 ? WTF!!!

I will be truly pissed if SE releases this version without a current kernel.

32 Ian May 4, 2011 at 9:29 PM

oh god here we go again…

33 andrei May 8, 2011 at 6:42 AM

AOSP gingerbread photos, 2.1 kernel, chinese language. Those photos are not from SE, they’re from a chinese user who installed an arc theme/launcher and AOSP GB.

34 chaussures mbt May 9, 2011 at 8:38 AM

très bon site et j’aime beaucoup i viendra la prochaine fois.

35 Taxation May 9, 2011 at 1:12 PM

do not really care, tired of SE, my contract is up in 2 months, and I am definitely not getting an SE phone.

Arc should have been released last year and compete with Galaxy S and Desire HD. SE is a hopeless company. I’ve been a dedicated fan, I can post pics of my SE collection if anyone is interested. They’ve let me down for the last time, X10 is probably going to be the last SE phone I ever own.

SE hardware design is top notch and unrivalled in my opinion, Arc is the best looking smartphone ever, but their software is way to buggy, slow and crap. The nightmares I went through with X1 and X10 will never be forgotten. They just cant get their act together.

36 sexy x10 May 12, 2011 at 6:25 AM

does it hav video calling option???

37 sexy x10 May 12, 2011 at 12:22 PM

Realy, guys, my parent were 2 guys, dont mind my bullshit.

38 Amy Richards May 13, 2011 at 9:27 PM

@sexy x10 How can it have the video calling option since it doesn’t have a 2nd camera. You’d be flipping your phone constantly.

39 Amy Richards May 15, 2011 at 12:47 PM

And I am a little idiot to explain how you would need to flip your phone constantly, when in a first place it DOESNT EVEN HAVE A FRONT CAMERA!!! Shitheads

40 Rioc May 25, 2011 at 4:20 AM

When is the actual Android 2.3 be released? Come on SE, we tired of waiting now !!
