It was at the end of last month/beginning of this month that Sony Ericsson had started rolling out the Android 2.1 (Ã‰clair) update for the Xperia X10. The update came at a point when most of the high-end phones are already running on Android 2.2 or are scheduled to get their Froyo love sometime this year. It is also unclear whether Sony Ericsson will officially update the X10 to Android 2.2 or not.
However, unofficially the X10 is hopefully weeks away from a clean Android 2.2 ROM. The folks over at XDA have somehow managed to bypass the X10’s boot loader and are working on a clean, stock Android 2.2.1 based Custom ROM for the handset. Right now, the ROM is in pre-alpha testing and the developers will try to squish all the bugs found during the testing phase by the users.
As of now, video playback and camera along with few other stuff are not working. The best part about this ROM is that it will allow users to dual boot between Android 2.1 and the Custom ROM. Users who are interested in trying out this ROM can check out this thread on XDA.
