The awesome developers over at XDA Developers have done it again! A developer with the username TripNRaVeR has managed to port the Xperia Arc ROM to the Xperia X10.
The Xperia Arc ROM for the X10 is based on Android 2.3.1 Gingerbread with Sony Ericsson’s proprietary MediaScape and Timescape UI running on top of it. The ROM is still in its early stages so some bugs are to be expected.
Most of the stuffs including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Network, Data and Timescape/Mediascape work just fine. One major gripe with the ROM is that the sound output of the phone does not work at all i.e. users won’t be able to hear what the other caller is saying while on a call.
Nevertheless, the developer TripNRaVeR has promised to fix the sound output bug in the next release. He has already warned that fixing the sound output bug may result in other stuffs not working.
Xperia X10 owners who don’t mind tinkering around with their phone, and want to taste the Gingerbread ROM on their handset, can visit this thread over at XDA forums.
