Earlier we had covered CyanogenMod 7 port for the XPERIA X10 Mini, but that was based on Android 2.3.3. This time around, CM7.0.3, which is also based on Android 2.3.3 has been tweaked up a bit by XDA-Developers forum members nobodyAtall and DaRk_dOg for the X10 Mini to include the latest Android 2.3.4 update. For more on this ROM and installation instructions, read on!
This ROM named MiniCM7-2.0.0, is a custom build of the CM7 ROM and runs atop the stock Sony Ericsson kernel. Being a port, the ROM has a few known bugs which we’ll list down before moving onto the features.
One of the most serious issues is the Camera resolution, which is limited to VGA for now. Apart from that, Audio and Radio apps are not routed correctly as of yet and lastly, proximity and light sensors may act funny.
As for the features:
- Built for LDPI.
- App2sd / Dalvik2sd compatible with 2.1 app2sd (storing to ext2/3/4 pre-existing partition is detected and mounted as such).
- Gingerbread’s native App2sd (storing to FAT).
- xRecovery installed and option to reboot into xRecovery.
- Extra CM performance Settings menus for setting overclocking and SD read cache speed.
- Extra CM settings display menu for ultra brightness.
- Fake dual touch thanks to doixanh and andrej456.
- Overclocking thanks to doixanh.
- Mddi lag fix thanks to doixanh.
