  • CyanogenMod 7.1 released for X8; Xperia X10 version due in a few days

    As we were expecting, CyanogenMod 7.1 has been released supporting a number of Sony Ericsson Xperia devices. So far all of the 2011 Xperia range is supported, but only the Xperia X8 from the 2010 range. Don’t worry though as head honcho Steve Kondik has confirmed that the Xperia X10 version will be coming in […]

  • Sony Ericsson re-confirms no Gingerbread for the X10 mini family and X8

    Sony Ericsson has confirmed once again that there will be no firmware update beyond Android 2.1 (Éclair) for the X10 mini family and the X8. Two reasons have been cited for the decision. The first relates to hardware and more specifically the lower RAM available compared to the X10. The company feels that they couldn’t […]

  • X10 mini pro gets unofficial dual-touch fix [Video]

    The X10 mini handsets were unfortunate not to receive the dual-touch update that its bigger brother the X10 received. Whilst some may question whether it is needed on such a small display, we would personally like to have the choice. Some keen devs (doixanh and slade87) over at xda-developers have finally managed to get dual-touch […]

  • X10 mini family and X8 will NOT receive Gingerbread update

    Whilst Xperia X10 owners are rejoicing on the news about Android Gingerbread heading to the headset, unfortunately it is not good news for the smaller Xperia models. Sony Ericsson has confirmed that as they need to “prioritise” their resources and thus there are no current plans for the X10 mini, X10 mini pro and X8 […]

  • Custom Froyo ROM hits the X10 mini and X8

    Up until now most of the custom ROM love has gravitated towards the flagship Xperia X10. However, there are now a number of xda-developer ninjas porting custom ROMs to both the X10 mini range and the Xperia X8. There are a number of different custom ROM’s currently in progress so hopefully it shouldn’t be too […]

    Sony Ericsson’s Rikard Skogberg has laid out the full details of the latest firmware update that is starting to roll out. This update is for the whole Xperia X10 family (including X8), but there are slightly different features between each. All handsets get new language support (including Arabic, Farsi, Thai and Hebrew) and bug fixes. […]

  • Official: Xperia X10 family will not receive upgrade to Froyo or beyond

    Sony Ericsson UK have officially confirmed with us this morning that the Xperia X10 family (including the X8) will not see an Android firmware revision above 2.1 (Éclair). Whilst the company’s new line of Xperia phones will launch with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), the X10 will not be supported past Android 2.1. The company instead plans […]

  • X10 mini successor snapped with Gingerbread and benchmarked

    The leaks just keep on coming. This time we have what looks like the successor to the X10 mini or X10 mini pro according to the guy that leaked them on IT168. The images clearly show the unnamed device running Android Gingerbread and will apparently come with a 3-inch (320 x 480) multi-touch display, 1GHz […]

  • New X10 update (2.0.2.A.0.24) brings bug fixes; loses ability to root

    Sony Ericsson has released a new (minor) update for the Xperia X10 family. The firmware has been updated to version 2.0.2.A.0.24 with Baseband version 2.0.49. There is no official changelog from the company so we can’t officially say what changes it brings. The main improvements appear to be better performance overall including Timescape and Mediascape, […]

This includes generic firmware in China, the Baltics, Belgium, France and India and […]

  • UK Xperia X10 update now rolling out

    Sony Ericsson UK has confirmed that the Android 2.1 update for the Xperia X10 is finally rolling out. They also went on to apologise for the wait. I imagine this is for unbranded handsets right now with the branded updates following at some point down the line. Hopefully other regions should follow shortly.

  • X10 mini gets surprise continuous autofocus in Éclair update

    A number of Sony Ericsson X10 mini and X10 mini pro users are reporting that the video functionality of the handset has been upgraded to include continuous autofocus. This functionality certainly wasn’t on the change log, which makes me wonder why SE wouldn’t want to promote such a feature. Of course, there’s no HD video […]

  • XDA to the rescue – Xperia X10a owners can now get Android 2.1

    Whilst many in Europe are rejoicing about finally getting hands-on with the Android 2.1 Xperia X10 update, spare a thought for those running X10a handsets (typically in North America) with no sign of an update on the horizon. Step forward the guys over at xda-developers who have been continuing their sterling work by releasing a […]
