Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has been ported to the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 by the wizards over at xda-developers. Recognised developer zdzihu says that this is a “very early build” where “most of the stuff does not work”. What does work is the radio, calls, SMS, bluetooth, GPS and wireless is “almost working”. Mobile data is also kind of working but seems to disconnect when it gets the IP address.
This alpha ROM certainly is not stable enough to be used on a daily basis (that’s the whole point of an alpha release), however if you want to test it out and leave some feedback then there’s no harm in giving it a try. Either way this is great work from the devs. Sony Ericsson is unlikely to release ICS for the Xperia X10, so this is the first step on the path to a stable ICS custom ROM.
