Thanks SK_007
SK_OO7 posted a new thread with the stock Sony 2.1 2.0.2.A.0.24 rooted and with JIT. Unlike the previous method this is much easier and is all done with xRecovery.

Rom Specs
1.It is based on the latest 2.0.2.A.0.24 Rom
(Firmware version 2.1-rooted-zdz)
(Baseband version
(Kernel version 2.6.29
2.Off course it is rooted
3.it is latest JIT v2 enabled(previously it was JIT v1 enabled)now you can get a score of upto 35 Mflops in linpack
4.latest market

He posted 3 different methods of installation and recommends the last 2 since they work "all the time". 

1.Copy the zip file[SK_007(Stock)Rom_final-JIT-v2.zip] to the root of your sd card,then reboot into xRecovery and click intall custom zip,then select SK_007(Stock)Rom_final-JIT-v2.zip ,it will start installing it,when finished reboot your device and Voila! its done,Enjoy.....

2.After downloading [SK_007(Stock)Rom_final-JIT-v2.zip] extract it,you will find a folder named "2010-12-".Copy the following folder in xrecovery/backup folder in your sd card,after that reboot your X10 into xrecovery mod and restore "2010-12-",and Voila.its done,Enjoy....

3.Go in xrecovery/backup folder(u can use root explorer or u can simply plug in your X10 to your pc with sd card mounted),there will be atleast one folder in it(if u have created a any backup(if not then first reboot into xrecovery and create a backup),replace all the 4 files,i.e cache,data,nandroid,system(img) with the 4 files u find in the extracted filer(2010-12-,after that reboot your X10 in xrecovery and restore that folder,and yeah it will start restoring,enjoy.

NEW JIT Version 2

Here is a new and improved version of the JIT Enabler. It is reported that it doubles the Linpack score and improves the X10's performance overall. I would recommended installing. The instructions are the same as before. You save the JIT zip on the root of your SD card and then reboot into xRecovery. Install as custom zip and then reboot.


So  I installed this and I have no problems so far. My WiFi is working like normal as well. After I reboot my phone it took some time to get to my home screen, I would say that it took like 2 minutes. So do not panic just give it some time. Now for the numbers,..... I did a Quadrant test right away and my result was 753, which is surprising for me because my phone is packed and fully modded. So download quick and install this mod before 2011, LOL

Xperia 2.1/Gingerbread Hybrid Theme ??

I was bored one day downloaded a framework-res.apk over at XDA one day and pushed it to my phone. The outcome......a hybrid X10 2.1/Gingerbread look. Personally I like it, its like a black theme with hints of dark blue here and there. Check it out

As you can see there is tints of black in the lockscreen, status bar (gingerbread style), and now playing in MediaScape. Also check box's have a new style as well. Phone book is still the same as well as contacts. The black version of the phone dialer and phone book kinda "blah". The font is not included with this mod you will have to change separately. Honestly it is best you guys try it your self. I will upload the "Hybrid" style and the stock X10 style with the battery mod. So check it out. 

How to Install
Download the file that you want and place the framework-res.apk on the ROOT of your SD card. Now you can do this with a terminal on your phone or you can do it with a terminal on your pc both use the same line of code. I did it on my PC, just remember to enable USB Debugging and connect your phone.

Enter this (mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock2 /system) without the ( )

Hit Enter

Then enter this (dd if=/sdcard/framework-res.apk of=/system/framework/framework-res.apk) without the ( )

Hit Enter

You will see some lines of code then your phone will reboot

JIT Through xRecovery

Here is another and more easier method of getting JIT. 

Download the file and place it on the root of your SD Card. Then reboot your phone and get into recovery mode. 

-Scroll down to "Install custom zip" the select it
-Scroll down to "Choose custom zip from sdcard" then select it 
-Find the JIT_enabler.zip on your SD card. Select it then confirm to install
-Reboot your phone


Hey guys here are some cool wallpapers that I found around, Looks nice on the X10. For the dark blue one I highly recommend that you use Wallpaper Set and Save, check it out here.

Personally I like the dark blue one it matches the X10's 2.1 firmware completely. Also click on the wallpapers to enlarge them.

Increase Head Phone Volume For X10

Here is a quick fix to increase the headphone volume on the X10, and this will work on other Android devices as well. So go to your market and install a application called "Louder Volume Hack", "hint google is your friend.

After installing it press on the speaker and you will get the following screen. 

Note - Do not play anything and have headphones plugged in when doing this 

Now in order from top to bottom hit the circled buttons. After you press a button it will apply the mod to your phone and then on the bottom of your screen you will get a message saying "successfully applied to phone" or something. If you get a error message just try it again until you get the successfully applied message. Once you are done hit exit and you are done. 

I tried this method when I was on the bus to see if it works, and surprisingly it did. I noticed a significant increase in headphone volume. I am not sure about the head set volume thou. 

Xperia X10 Update 2.0.2A.024 UPDATED

Recently SE has released a new firmware for the X10. It has been reported it "fixes" the dreadful in call volume. Great timing now I can hear my friends and family when they wish me for the holidays and new years lol. On XperiaX10Blog it was reported that there is a new keyboard, improvements in TimeScape and MediaScape, and overall phone functions. Some say that SE just released this to patch rageagainstthecage, since there is a new baseband and kernal.

But it was also noted that there is no root, which is a big blow.

BUT zdzihu over at XDA posted a new generic firmware that is pre-rooted AND comes preinstalled with xRecovery. Which is great and is a big time saver.

Generic 2.0.2A.024
Sin Loader
Latest Flasher

Normally I would write a step by step process of a mod but this mod does have a few quirks at the moment. So I am going to wait for it to get a solid and a more easier method of installation. You can still do it and I have linked all the necessary files to save you some time. I have also linked some of the posts in the thread that might be helpful.  

JIT  Note that it is reported that WiFi does not work after JIT was enabled 
Instructions 4


The Changelog soo far, doesn't really seem worth it in my opinion. 
Changelog List:
1- Incall volume is the same as previous
2-Fells faster overall
3-Nothing about Multitouch.
4-Unlock animation is more fluid and more responsive
5-the keyboard is now white and grey, like to HTC

Gingerbread Keyboard on X10

Title says it all. The keyboard works well. It is surprisingly accurate, not a bit fan of the color scheme but what ever. All the functions work, and some functions only work it certain areas. For example the emotions button only appears when your texting, pretty smart. Only minor issue, is that the key letter are kind of small. This is the X10 version so there is no scaling issue I will update this post when never versions come on. 

Must have Root
Need to install xRecovery, check out my previous posts to find out how. 

Download this file and place it on the root of your SD card.

-Scroll down to "Install custom zip" the select it
-Scroll down to "Choose custom zip from sdcard" then select it 
-Find the keyboard zip on your SD card Select it then confirm to install

Then reboot your phone, now you have the GingerBread Keyboard on your phone.


Alternative Method to get JIT (Less Work)

After seeing alot of questions and frustration here is a alternative method of getting JIT. It is nothing new it is the latest customizer made by ttxdragon.

You will need to have root and BusyBox installed. Just download enable usb debugging on your phone then connect via USB.

Then run RunMeWindows.bat and the rest is all self explained. Thanks to cmd interface it is easy to get done and its mess proof.

Download Here

Hope It Helps

Windows Phone 7 Launcher Icons

As I was searching for icons I found this great files that has circular Windows Phone 7 icons. I find them pretty cool and there is alot of from from the typical call, contacts, web to Acrobat reader and weather. So download the zip extract then place it on your SD card and depending on your launcher just select custom icons and choose the ones that you like.

I am using launcher pro so I can only change the dock icons and that was easy to do, long press a dock icon then select change icon/custom icon/for me it open my gallery and then I select the icon that I like. 

This is how my home screen looks like. I have weather, phone dialer, app drawer, text messages, then email.

-The time widget is called TypoClock check out my previous post on it for full info

Hope it helps and enjoy. 


I will try to make this app review quick and straight forward as I can, lol. MiuiMusic  is a great application has a alot of function and looks nice as well. It has a cool visualizer feature and a widget as well. It basically builds on top of the default 2.1 music application but is a bit better. The only problem with the application is a little bit of lag here and there, besides that it works great. 

Its best if you try it out for your selves if you care about looks then this is a good app, if you mind a little lag here and there then I guess this wouldn't really be your music application. 

Install xRecovery After Custom 2.1

After I installed the AOSP rom I was unable to install the recovery apk, I kept on getting some error stating that my memory card was full or not inserted properly. Here is how to fix that.

You need to have root, and root explorer as well. (Like I said before it makes your life easier)

Now download the latest recovery apk, then rename it as a zip.

Now open it and go to res/raw in this folder you will find 3 files busybox, chargemon, and xrecovery.tar

Now copy the raw folder to the root of your SD card

With file explorer find the folder then "multi select" the three files and then move them to system/bin, also before you move just make sure to have r/w selected before and after you select the files.

Paste the files then reboot your phone, after the 1st Sony Ericsson logo keep on pressing the back button and you should get the recovery menu.

-Just remember to have r/w selected

X10 AOSP 007 Final 2.1

Okay guys this is the "final rom" for the AOSP 2.1 project. Since the process was soo easy and quick I was unable to get screen shots of it. But I am confident that anyone can do this rom flash it is that easy and simple. Once again thanks to the developers over at XDA.

Recovery Post

Download the Following. Both of the recoveries are the same, the second one is a direct download link for those who are lazy to make a new account etc etc lol. 

Must Do
You must have a Rooted Phone and you need to have BusyBox installed on your phone. To get root on your phone install this on your phone and select the root button. Then install the latest BusyBox, run it then press install. Also have at least 50% battery on your phone.

Step One
Extract the Rom file
Copy the apps, HTC_IME, and the Black----.zip from the rom folder to the root of your phones SD card.
At the same time place the xRecovery on your SD card as well, a place that you will remember to find later on.

Step 2
With a file manager find and install the recovery apk. Open the apk then hit "Install xRecovery".
The program will install the components on your phone, if you get a error please check the post for more information. This is the new version and it works, I had problems with the first version. 

Now Reboot Your Phone

When the 1st Sony Ericsson Logo appears keep on pressing the back button (works for me this way). You should now be in the recovery menu. To scroll up and down you use the volume keys. To select you use the middle (home button). To go back you use the (right) back button. 

Step 3
-Scroll down to "Install custom zip" the select it
-Scroll down to "Choose custom zip from sdcard" then select it 
-Find the rom zip on your SD card Select it then confirm to install

The flashing process was surprisingly quick. Mines took a few minutes to complete and the phone rebooted and I got the custom 2.1 firmware. As you can see this process is really really simple. 

Hope it helps, have fun.

Great news the 2.1 custom rom is now no longer a beta and everything is reported to work well. Great great great great news. Even better the code is now being ported to the 2.2 rom code as well.

Also I am sorry for the lack of posts in the last couple of days, I have been a bit busy with school and stuff. I am going to make some new posts regarding customization, and for sure once this rom is released I will make a post one it. I was going to get the 006 installed on my phone but for some reason I was unable to install the recovery on my phone, I wonder why. Once again sorry for the lack of posts.

Just to let you guys know that dial out loop issue with the X10 2.1 AOSP custom rom has been fixed. It is part of the new b006 firmware.

 Here is the Post


Besides Video Playback and Camera Settings everything else seems to be working. I think that this rom is ready for daily use since the dial out loop if fixed.

-JIT is already applied to the ROM

Hubble Galaxy Wallpapers

A while while back XperiaX10iUser at XDA posted a link of some Hubble galaxy pictures. All resized to fit the X10 perfectly. All of the pictures are great to look at and are really cool as well, there is 48 in total. Not all of them are clear "HD", so I organized them and named the "HD" ones HDxxxxxxxxx.png. I am no super HD expert and I do not have superman vision but I rounded up the pictures that look clear and have the colors popping.

Here are some of my favourite = )

Xperia X10 Custom Recovery

The X10 XDA community and developers are churning out new mods and improvements every week. Recently "ZDZIHU" posted a custom recovery for the X10. Personally I am not a major expert on this stuff, but from all the videos I have seen on YouTube and all the threads I read online I think that this is another major step for the X10 community. Check it out at the link below. If you have a friend or if you are interested in buying a X10 I would recommended purchasing one, at the moment. I believe you can find them for cheap, here in Canada its around $250-ish, online (kijiji). With the custom roms available, good hardware, CONFIRMED MULTI TOUCH, screen, and much more its a great device.

-It was noted that the bootloader is still not cracked = (, but this is better than nothing = ) 
-Also if you guys have any knowledge in this development please comment ThAnKs AlOt
