+1 to the idea but i think the problems with backlight should be top priority

Not yet, because many things are not working and for example now you can restart device and use WM for gps. This would not be possible with rom.

But when most things are sorted out, ROM would be a great option.

I agree with you matejdro, android is working okay now but not good enough. A couple of things aren't working which are important to use.

i think before a ROM can even be considered, android needs to be able to recognise all hardware and then it needs to be able to work with all hardware. once android is at this stage, it could then be made into a ROM.

Yes, I would very much like to see an Android ROM for the Xperia, for the following reasons:

1. I don't like WinMo that much, and I would be happy to replace it on my Xperia altogether in favor of my favorite OS.
2. It's over a year since I last used the Xperia as my main device, and I mainly use it for experimentation now, so I wouldn't mind an Android ROM even if the port still is a bit buggy.
3. You wouldn't have to launch Haret in order to run it.
4. Correct me if I'm wrong, but when you launch Android through Haret, it isn't run concurrently with Windows Mobile, right? But still, having a dedicated ROM ought to speed up Android a bit, when it's not launched through WinMo.
5. The internal storage is faster than memory cards, so that would speed up things a bit as well.

I'm really looking forward to an Android ROM, just wish I could do more to help making it

Yes, but, it is needed a working screen light/bluetooth/gps/headphones
it is still not working in android.
But, i wouldn't rewrite ROM to android. For me is better to use heater.exe. 2 minutes(just like windows) and android is ready!
