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 x8 firmware news and releases from the XDA forums are as follows:
GingerDX | v018 – lightweight based on Gingerbread from the CM nightlies with optimised DX libraries
GingerCyBorg 2.3.5 | v005 – Based on GingerDX but with HoneyComb features
Gingerbread 2.3.5 for X8 | Based on MiniCM7 – a build based on MiniCM7 to look like an official SE release
Ice Cream Sandwich <- GingerDX – GingerDX made to look like Android 4.0/ICS
[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.
