Feeling down about the FreeXperia team dropping support for the 2010 Xperia ARMv6 range? Fear not, the development scene is as busy as ever:
The latest X10 Mini Pro firmware news and releases from the XDA forums are as follows:
GinTonic.SE | v2.5.1 – revival of GinTonic, Gingerbread 2.3.7 with lots of tweaks and fixes from Slade87
MiniCM7 Pro – V20-Final (Stable) (STOPPED) – MiniCM7 for the X10 Mini Pro! When I read that development for this has stopped I was gutted but then I updated to this release and found it to be a super release and a great place to leave the development. Also the developer paul-xxx has stated that he’ll continue to release hotfixes!
KrSH 0.2.1 (beta) works with CM7.1 – this is a rather basic kernel, it seems the main aim was a kernel to support official CM. It includes CMW recovery v5. This development has been stopped by the developer but, good news, it has been passed on to paul-xxx (the developer of MiniCM Pro, SonyStyle and many more great releases!)
Flame.E v0.4[beta] CM 188.8.131.52 – this brings in elements of a number of releases but seems mainly based on GinTonic.SE
Re-Birth Of ArcMini [V8 Coming Soon] – ArcMini returns! A SE styled release based on GingerDX
[Module] X8MDDI – no more MDDI lags! | X8 | X10 mini | X10 mini pro | v001 – This isn’t a custom firmware but a module for developers to cook into their releases, hopefully this will give us all better performance in future releases.
If you’re not up to date, or starting out from scratch 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.
If you’ve tested or use any of the firmware listed please give feedback to other users via the comments.
