This weekend I had the pleasure of testing a new build of MiniCM9 for the developer nobodyAtall on my X10 Mini Pro. I’d already been using the first release of MiniCM9 (3.0.1) but decided it wasn’t there yet to use as my daily driver; I even worried if the 2010 devices were just too old for ICS so reverted to MiniCM7 (which is rock solid and fast).
I was really surprised when flashing 3.0.2; The speed and responsiveness of it struck me straight away. I used it quite heavily and had no noticeable lag and even after installing a number of apps didn’t notice any slow down. Pretty impressive for 3 year old hardware.
I’ve now got a Class 10 SD card so partitioned it to have 256Mb swap and 512Mb for apps2sd and then ran the a2sd install script from terminal. There are, as there always is on the ldpi screens of the x10 mini/mini pro, times when things don’t fit quite right but ICS wasn’t designed for ldpi at all so a real achievement by nobodyAtall.
The XDA threads for the X8, X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro are as follows, respectively;
