Can we safely say that the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 community is dead? I mean, there hasn't been any development activity for a LONG time. Almost over a year.
My Devices:
Primary: Google Nexus 7 (2012) 16 GB
Secondary: Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant (T-Mobile)
Tertiary: Raspberry Pi Model B Revision 2
Damaged: (Twice!) Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1i

Stuff I Did:
Code Butter ROM (Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1): Main Thread
Xperoid Toolbox: Main Thread

I agree. It's dead as far as development goes. The hardware is now outdated to make it worth taking the time to port newer versions of Android for it. I still use my X1 from time to time though.
Devices:
LG U8110 -> SE K800i -> Xperia X1i (2.3.7 NAND ROM) -> SE Live with Walkman (ICS ROM) -> Mobistel Cynus T1-> Nexus 7 2013 32GB

I must say it was a great experience working with you on the X1. I really learned a lot, and realized that writing device drivers for your own phone gives you at least 1000 Hacker points Also I didn't have to get a new phone for two years when I was more or less broke all the time.....

Now things are looking better, and I got a Sony Xperia Go a few weeks back, and yesterday I got an extra one used. I am planning to join in with the development of CM11 for that in the near future.

Maybe we meet in another FOSS project somtime in the future.

Best regards,
