Installing Android 2.2 on Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

Orange Pi Development Boards

XDA recently released a ROM with Android 2.2.1 (Froyo) for Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.

Bear in mind that this is still a BETA version with the following known bugs and limitations:

  • Closing certain apps will cause the ROM to crash or reboot
  • Youtube / Adobe Flash status uncertain
  • No camcorder recording
  • No native wifi/usb tethering
  • You’ll need to log into the old market at least once before installing the new one
  • Maybe more.

All sort of bad things may happen to your phone, but if xRecovery is correctly setup you should be able to recover. If you still want to go forward, following the “simple” steps below.

First download the following files:

Here’s what you’ll need before installing Android 2.2:

  1. Rooted 2.1 ROM. Instructions for doing so are available at Dualtouch for all ROMS [GUIDE]
  2. Working xRecovery – Instructions are available at xRecovery 0.2-release

Installation Instructions:

  1. Flash the zip package via xRecovery
  2. After the first boot, flash Google Apps via xRecovery

If you want to play around with the source code, you can download X10_2.2_Froyo_sources.tar.bz2

I installed Android 2.1 on my brand new Sony Ericsson Xperia 10 and it completed successfully. I’m happy with this installation and also recommend everyone to update immediately.
