App2SDZdzihu from xda-developers continues to make great progress on the Custom Android 2.2 (Froyo) ROM for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. In the latest hotfix, he has now included native APP2SD functionality, which enables you to move your apps to your memory card.

However, it’s worth remembering this is still a beta release and there are still plenty of bugs that are being worked on. If you’re feeling brave to test this out, there’s a good step-by-step tutorial here to get it working.

Thanks @saltorio!

Great progress.. Now lets get the camera fixed and the x10 might be one of the front runners again

Excellent! This is great news.

does anybody know when the custom 2.2 rom will be stable enough for dauly use and with camera finctions??

6 se1 January 11, 2011 at 4:24 PM

might aswel just buy the arc by the time they achieve anything like a decent version of 2.2 on the x10 at xda the arc will be oon 2.4. lets face it the x10 was a learning curve

how to install 2.2 rom?

8 saltorio January 11, 2011 at 4:41 PM

Zdzihu has stated that the camera functions are a work in progress, but no idea when it’ll be fixed. As it’s the only feature missing from the 2.2 ROM at this point, I’d assume it’s what he’s working on (in addition to the FC fixes).

There’s a link to a how-to in the second paragraph of the article. Just follow the instructions there.

The X10 was indeed a learning curve… for both SE and it’s customers. However, as this 2.2 ROM is quite stable from the comments and only missing camera functionality, it’s likely to hit release before the Arc hits retailers, even if it’s on-time with the March estimated release date. Zdzihu has already stated that 2.3 will be next as soon as he gets 2.2 to a release quality.

Nope. I beat you! ;p

Thanks a lot Saltorio…not only you are a great communicator , you are funny at it too!

Thanks Zdzihu…make this camera work with 2.2 and I will definitely contribute $ for all your hard work!

11 Radzie January 11, 2011 at 5:29 PM

Great news. Can’t wait to use this ROM. I really love my X10 and won’t sell to get another phone, even Arc. Keep great working bro… 🙂

12 Robert January 11, 2011 at 5:48 PM

leave it to the SE guys to turn up a great phone, screw with the software, give customer false hopes and promises, and leave loyal SE customers in the dark after just one update.

the Gods at XDA sure knows how to save the day. these people deserves more royalties than the devs SE hires to screw their androids for us!

13 thuddis January 11, 2011 at 6:34 PM

THIS SYSTEM BROKE MY PHONE, IT’S JUST STAND SE LOGO IN 16 HOURS NOW?! i can’t go in to xrecovery or something! what i’m gonna do?:(

14 Ani January 11, 2011 at 6:51 PM

@thuddis , use the SE update software to reflash ur device to generic ROM

15 andrei January 11, 2011 at 6:54 PM

hey bro. Try to remove ur battery, wait 3-4-5 sec then insert it back
press the power button, then wait a lil` . When se logo pops up, just press lots of times on usb mngmnt or smth like that and MOUNT usb. on ur computer, open pc companion and repair ur software, and it will reinstall shipped 2.1 by S.E.

100000000000 of hugs & kiss to XDA dev

17 Kerrigan January 11, 2011 at 7:08 PM

Been using this ROM for a week now. (Now with Hotfix 4a)
It’s really stable, fast and awesome.
There are some really nice Themes at xda for this ROM too.

I recommend this to everyone who can live without the Camera.

18 thuddis January 11, 2011 at 7:21 PM

my screen is flashing and it’s no service, i’m not good at english, i culd not follow the instruktions

19 goku January 11, 2011 at 8:17 PM

@saltorio thanks for the reply, hopefully it will be soon, cant wait for the custom 2.2 rom, will XDA be able to knock up a custom 2.3 perhaps??

20 se1 January 11, 2011 at 8:23 PM


Even if some how xda manages to get 2.3 running on the x10 i highly douubt it will be stable and saying 2.2 is stable on the x10 2.1 isnt exactly lightening speed. I dont really see the point its not the same having a dodgy version as official will always risk killing your phone totally. Can’t see the point myself technology evolves x10 has gone as far as it can

21 Andy January 11, 2011 at 10:23 PM


This rom is fast, very fast. Have a look at the specs of the new se arc they are very close to the x10. What it can do the x10 can do. Now check out what lg & samsung are bringing out (dual core) the arc will flounder badly this year. 2010 tech in 2011 = Bad business. Xda will make the x10 suceed where se have failed.

22 Sliganslogan January 11, 2011 at 10:24 PM

Can’t wait for this to get the camera implemented xda is so much better than SE

23 Attila BArdi January 11, 2011 at 10:40 PM


download Android SDK
find adb in cmd or bash:
./adb shell
killall servicemanager

24 Mattd January 12, 2011 at 2:17 AM

I’m also getting the screen flashing and having trouble getting ADB to work. This guide I’m following (Mainly the link for the android SDK) isn’t working how it’s saying. Anyone have any tips

25 Kevin January 12, 2011 at 4:34 AM

This is great! No camera, but the speed difference between this and the stock branded 2.1 is night and day – flash too!

To people with flashing screen prob. If you’re having trouble with fixing with ADB, try download PDANet – Plug ur phone in, run setup. And the end of setup it will ask you to install a usb driver, click Yes. Wait. Check your phone and see if it’s fixed it worked for me

26 Leah January 12, 2011 at 8:04 AM

Zdzihu – Marry me! 🙂

27 t-rex January 12, 2011 at 8:42 AM

Does anybody know about 2.2-progress for the x10 mini?

28 android development company January 12, 2011 at 9:31 AM

Is there a word yet on X10 Android Update for AT & T users? The last one I saw on this was posted in December, and now he seems to get news out. Have we forgotten? I know SE are launching new phones, they decided to forget them, which was bought last year with the promise of an update soon that never came

29 TylerDurden January 12, 2011 at 10:49 AM

Hey all, anyone that gets the problem of the phone flashing, just whip the battery out, pop back in and switch on, worked for me 🙂 this is a nice rom still needs a bit of work tho, and compatibility for the apps we used in the se 2.1 would be wicked i.e backup and restore and mediascape I use em both. I downloaded a pack with all the apps in it but they wouldnt install 🙁 not to worry tho there are other apps and ways and means to work round stuff. If the xda boys can get the cam working and recording in hd and make it more stable then I for one say job very VERY well done!

30 Jamie T January 12, 2011 at 2:54 PM

Guys, the playstation app has launched on iPhone and android

31 x10 warrior January 13, 2011 at 8:39 AM

32 Amazing JOB!!! January 14, 2011 at 10:24 AM

Zdzihu you are incredible. All power be with you! Dont worry about junk apps most of just dont need

se=monkeys kingdom

@tyler why did you stick to mediashit there are large amount of apps which are 200% better that mediashit power amp , and titanium backup
poweramp=equalizer and better sound!
titanium backup is a proffessional app for buckup
2.2= fully loaded website

Something I demand lol

Don’t worry tho when the 2.2 is stable enough and has a working cam ill be there!

35 Bob January 22, 2011 at 10:11 PM

If I were to root/flash my phone, would I be able to keep stuff like the timescape or mediascape? and will anyone be able to copy the xperia x12 software, and re-shell it onto the x10?

36 Nik January 28, 2011 at 8:10 AM

Does this custom android 2.2 support adobe flash 10.1 and also be able to tether? Would be awesome if anyone can confirm.

37 Tyler February 5, 2011 at 6:14 PM

I got a SE Xperia x10 i have a problem in it the camera was working fine till the phone gets upgraded to 2.1, i just upgraded the firmware myself directly from the internet from 1.6 to 2.1 from that when i try to turn on the camera automatically the screen goes very dim and its going worst, if i exit and come out of the camera option also the brightness remains same but if i switch off the phone and turn it on again then the phone goes to it original condition and the screen has the perfect brightness and it looks fine, i just want to know does anyone got this same problem,if yes plz help me out of this issue
Thank you
