April Showers


As I still don’t have a decent interent connection at home I’ve not been able to post during the month so here’s a collection of news items from the month.

It’s no Joke!

At the start of the month there was a post over on the CyanogenMod Blog announcing a new mascot, Cid.  I didn’t post about it as I was convinced it was an April Fools prank and am still waiting for the ‘fooled you!’ follow up post; Yes, you can tell I’m not a fan of the new mascot but to be honest I’m not a fan of Andy the bugdroid either.  Perhaps I’ll come to like it…

2011 Xperia official ICS updates

It’s taken taking longer than was originally announced but Sony are pushing out the official ICS update to the 2011 Xperia range of devices.  It all started near the middle of the month with releases in Nordic countries.  The Mini/Mini/Pro/Active updates are expected from late May and into June.  Over on Xperia Blog you can read some first impressions of the ICS update on an Arc S and already there are guides out there to get root access on the ICS firmware.  The last word on the Sony Mobile Blog doesn’t really tell us anything new..

Xperia Active’s successor

If you’re a fan of the Active (I certainly am and would love to get one if it were available on contract in the UK) then you’ll be interested in the rumoured ST27.  Predictably the screen size had grown but only to 3.5″ so hopefully bucking the huge screen trend!  Again, more details over on Xperia Blog.

Sony ST21i ‘Tapioca’

It seems that Sony have throw all their sleek designs out of the window and gone for a budget phone with a budget look as the pictures of the chunky ST21i/Tapioca have recently leaked.  With a 3.2″ display it’s a pretty small device although there’s quite a bit of bulk added to the phone with a large bezel.  It will be launching with ICS and the specs, while modest, aren’t too shabby!

Other news

Retro gaming fans might be looking forward to a slew of Prince of Persia (PoP) variants as the source code for the original PoP on the AppleII has been recovered and released.

For those with no shame or sense you can now pick up an Android Hoodie over on the Google store, I’d be more than happy to post pictures of anyone brave enough to buy one and wear it in public!

It’s the last day of April, in the UK it’s been really wet with heavy rain to get us to the end of the month, I hope the weather’s been better wherever you are!

The State of All Things Mini(Android)


If a large phone isn’t your thing then recently there’s not been much going on as far as new android tech goes.

Now, what constitues a small phone is somewhat subjective, i.e. for some people a 3.5 inch screen is tiny, and something I’ve pondered over in the past when considering what to cover on this blog so decided to ignore anything over the 3 inch display size.  Well after months of watching (and waiting for Sony Ericsson to announce a continuation of the mini series) there has only been one phone of note, the Galaxy Pocket by Samsung; a low end device more in line with the specs of the original 2010 SE kit.  Hardly inspiring…

To be fair this is reflected in many of the surveys out there; most people are after a device just short of tablet proportions.

Obviously this leaves the mini Android phone space that the Xperia devices occupy open; not to forget that the 2011 devices, (the mini, mini pro and active), are pretty decent bits of kit and, in the UK at least, can be found with decent contract deals.

Custom firmware updates

Due to a number of reasons there haven’t been updates to the blog for a while which gave me an opportunity to look at the stats and rethink things.  There’s been a lot going on with lots of ICS/Android 4 builds for all devices; just to remind anyone the devices (with links to the XDA forums) include:

2010 devices

At the moment the scene for the 2010 devices is much like it was in the early Froyo and Gingerbread days; there lots of different builds of Ice Cream Sandwich with a number of bugs but running pretty well.  For a lot of seasoned users the ICS ports are fine for use but for those looking for a seamless experience and fully functioning hardware it’s not for them; yet!

The most accomplished release is MiniCM9 for the X8 by NobodyAtAll, the most notable missing functionality is the camera.  It’s now only a matter of time for nAa to bring his work across to the LDPI X10 Mini/Pro.

Lots of other builds are out too, helped by a lot of work by paul-xxx of both ports of ICS/CM9 and guides to get others building ICS from source.

2011 devices

After a slow start the scene is now really active; a combination of builds based on modified Sony stock firmware, the FreeXperia builds of CM7/CM9 and AOSP (or AOKP if you like) are available.  Of course the official Sony ICS firmware is around the corner.

Future updates

I’ll be following up with some firmware roundups soon and working on adding to and updating the pages on the site.  I’m waiting for my X10 Mini Pro to get repaired as it’s not charging properly; very strange, it’s stopped taking a charge from lower amp USB sockets so am just waiting for T-Mobile UK to get their act together (it’s been weeks already!).

Sony Mobile releases Ice Cream Sandwich beta for 2011 Xperia devices – unlocked bootloader required.


http://developer.sonymobile.com/wp/2012/02/23/android-ice-cream-sandwich-beta-rom-available-for-unlocked-2011-xperia-smartphone-models/

2011 Xperia Devices

I’m not sure this reflects everyone’s views but I keep an eye on the 2011 device forums and look out for new releases but every release, apart from official CM/FXP, is based on stock firmware.  I’m hoping this will change and some genuinely interesting releases will appear built from source.

Hello 2012

We’re nearly into the new calendar year; I get really bored with everyone recapping on everything that has happened so I’ll keep this concise:

  • We’ve had a new set of mini Xperia devices; the active, mini and mini pro are really super mini devices.
  • Sony Ericsson have really upped their game and gone from a failure, yes the way they moved to android in 2010 was poor, to one of the top manufacturers.
  • The development scene for the 2010 devices is really healthy and continues to give new life to the ageing hardware.
  • We had a big lift with the official addition of Xperia devices to CyanogenMod with the bitter-sweet drop of the 2010 hardware (really the hardware just isn’t any good these days).
  • Despite the ageing hardware there are ICS releases for all the 2010 mini devices.

I’ve only been the administrator of the blog for a few months but hope that everyone has enjoyed reading my posts.  You can’t please everyone so am sure that it’s not to everyone’s tastes but let me know what you think and I’ll try and improve.

It still seems that the Xperia range is the only one to be delivering mini android phones.  It’s taken me a while but I’ve decided on what Mini means and it’s simple; 3″ display or smaller and the device not being much larger (i.e. not any of the blackberry a-likes like the HTC chacha).

I’ll be out of contract in 2012 so am looking forward to the new Xperia range, there’s still no word on the specifics of any mini devices so will watch eagerly!

Happy new year .

News round-up 24 November


Hi everyone.  Sorry for the low activity on this blog of late; I’ve been very busy with work and just had a minor operation so not been able to get the updates out at the usual pace.

First off some positive news about our friends over on XperiaBlog.net and XperiaX10.net; they have come to an agreement with Sony Ericsson and can continue with the Xperia urls.

A general moan from the author ;-)

I try to report on the larger picture and even though I only have an X10 Mini Pro include news on the X10 Mini, X8 and the 2011 Xperia devices with 3″ screens.  Please stop giving posts one star just because you are bitter that the news is about 2011 devices. You are supposed to be rating the quality of the content not the topic, it’s like saying what I’m taking time to write is rubbish.

General updates

Flashtool version 0.5.3.0 – Flashtool has been updated the XDA discussion thread for the X8 can be found here and the X10 Mini Pro thread is here.  The major new features include: the Fastboot toolbox for 2011 line devices and Bootloader unlock for X10 Mini/Mini Pro and X8.  Anyone tried it out yet?

Unlock bootloader & relock bootloader | X8 | W8 | X10 mini | X10 mini pro | – For me I don’t see the urge to unlock the bootloader and but to save people asking me here’s the link to the main thread on the XDA forums.

Device news

Latest news and releases for the Xperia X8

GingerDX | v020 – Some minor improvements for the popular GingerDX. Quoting from the thread ‘The main goal is to have a fast, smooth, lightweight CM7 with special features’.

Alfs for GingerDX |v04 – A kernel for GingerDX based on the FXP work.

XPerienSe 2.3.3 v0.1 – Sense ROM (Alpha) “Operation Salsa” – Okay a crazy name for this release but it’s based on the HTC Salsa so is wonderfully good looking but at the time of writing has a number of significant bugs and performance issues.

GingerCruzt Revision 8.2 – The latest update to this popular release with an unfortunate name include some minor changes along with the keyboard from the 2011 Mini.

Froyo Pro v1.1 for X8 – based on Doixanh’s FroyoBread concentrating on fixes not new features.

Ginger CyBorg 2.3.7 | v006 – Based on GingerDX but with HoneyComb and Ice Cream Sandwich features.

Stornmix V2.0.0 – A new release based on MiniCM.  Based on the screenshots it’s heavily styled with the Xperia launcher and the geometric sans serif font seen in other custom firmwares (that I don’t think is well suited to GUIs, but that’s just my opinion).

2.1.1.Clean.0.0 V5 – pfonck’s Eclair release gets a minor update.

If you’re not up to date, or starting out from scratch try using the new flashtool listed above.  Alternatively here’s some links to get your device rooted and a recovery installed:

Latest news and releases for the Xperia X10 Mini

Now I don’t know why but there hasn’t been much activity on the X10 Mini for some time.  I don’t know why this is, it’s never as active as the X10 Mini Pro or X8 but it’s really gone quiet.  At least there’s one major update in the shape of MiniCM!

MiniCM7-2.1.4 – Gingerbread 2.3.7/CM7.1 unofficial port for the x10mini ‘The true CyanogenMod7 Experience!’

MiniCM7-2.1.4 Tweaks – A collection of tweaks for MiniCM7

nAa-06 Custom Gingerbread kernel + CWM Recovery - NobodyAtall’s GB kernel

X10mini S(ense) [sense 2.1 rom] [android 2.3.3] – a new release still in dev stages.  Based on senseonfire rom, resized to 240×320. Sense 2.1 on android 2.3.3

Latest news and releases for the Xperia X10 Mini Pro

Some unfortunate news; one of the major X10 Mini Pro devs paul-xxx has burned his X10 Mini Pro; obviously without a phone he can’t continue developing his releases.

MiniCM7Pro – V21 + Lite Versions – a port of MiniCM7 to the Mini Pro.  This is my daily driver, it does have some minor issues but is a superb release.

SonyStyle – V1.1 – MiniCM7Pro SonyStyle is no more; long live SonyStyle ;) well that was until paul-xxx broke his X10 Mini Pro and development stopped…

SimpleKernel – 1.4 Final – This was paul-xxx’s development on the Kamarush kernel which works with the official CM7 release but with no Wifi.  Since burning his X10 Mini Pro paul-xxx has handed source code to XxLordxX and naw3x.

CyanoCream Sandwich (v2.0) – An ICS styled release based on Flame.E.  This looks fantastic, anyone using it let us know how it goes!  A fiddly install so read the instructions carefully!

Ice Cream Sandwich AOSP Port? – for those of you who’ve read this thread already you’ll know that Slade87 is working on porting ICS to the X10 Mini Pro; don’t hold your breath but let’s hope for the best!

2.1.1.Clean.0.0 V5 – pfonck’s Eclair release gets a minor update in line with the X8 release.

If you’re not up to date, or starting out from scratch try using the new flashtool listed above.  Alternatively  here’s the best place to get your device rooted and a recovery installed:

ClockWorkMod Installer – Windows v4, Linux v4 – for Windows users it’s all self contained in the zip file, Linux users need to root first; there are links to the Linux Rooter in the thread.

Latest news and releases for the Xperia 2011 Mini devices

As you’ve all seen the 2011 devices will be well looked after; both Sony Ericsson will be releasing ICS/android 4.0 and CyanogenMod 9 will be making it’s way to your hands.  Who would have thought, after the mess that SE made of their first foray into Android in 2010, that things could go so well for the 2011 Xperia range!

Over on the XDA forums there’s plenty going on:

KRsH Kernel v2.0 (Mini) – KRsH Kernel v2.0 (MiniPro) – our loss is your gain, kamarush’s development has moved to the 2011 mini and mini pro with his excellent kernel.  Featuring: CWM 5.0.2.7, CPU Governors, I/O Schedulers, EXT2/3/4/NTFS FS support, Cifs support, Tun / Tap, Prerooting, IPtables / Netfilter, Overclock up to 2Ghz and Swap support.  Full details in the link.

CM7.2.0 – FXP047 – FreeXperia Project – Yep the thread for the FXP project.

5.0.2.7-nAa-r2 ClockworkMod for Stock Xperia Mini/Pro/Active/Arc – This is ClockworkMod Recovery (v.5.0.2.7) ported to work on Xperia mini / Xperia mini pro / Xperia Active / Xperia Arc.  It does not require an unlocked bootloader so warranty’s aren’t at risk!

4.0.2.A.0.42 (1254-2724) (Android 2.3.4) with CWM and Root – A custom kernel for the Active.

Phew, this took a while to put together….  time to get myself a cuppa!
