[EDIT 2]
Tweaking the Linkkeys file wasn't stbale.

I'm still seaking for the optimal solution, and I stumbled upon another thread which I'm gong to follow:
[HOW-TO][APP] Make the SE liveview work on ICS
It contains a complete list of possible solutions you can try. Tested on GB, ICS, CM7, CM9 and more!

Kind regards!
[EDIT 2/]

The connection seemed stable but wasn't. All the usual problems were still there
So today i tweaked the linkkey file (need root) and that seems to do the trick!
This tweak doesn't solve the real problem, but it makes a good work-around. The liveview device still looses connection, but when it tries to reconnect, you don't need to accept the connection. The phone simply accepts the connection.

So, recently I bought a second hand LiveView.
I had the connection drops), but with Livecharm installed it was a bit better.

This morning I updated the firmware on my liveView an now this thing rocks!
I don't need LiveCharm anymore and it just dropped connection one time during the day (fingers crossed). So I'm using a pretty basic setup without any hacks or tricks.

I'm using a custom ROM on my SE Xperia X10i.
(both Mokee and Champs x10s port are able to work with liveview).
They are both CM7 based.
If I can contribute (eg. by giving insight in details of my working setup) then just let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

Nonetheless I'm hoping that developers wont abandon their OpenView project.
LiveView has much potential. Since I've got mine working, I'm reading all tweets, facebook updates en news (RSS) on the LiveView.
It even becomes annoying that i need my phone to post updates myself

So if you can get it to work, it';s a great toy.

To everybody that is interested: Sony updated their liveview app. The stability has heen improved a lot! You really schould try it.

Also, there is a thread about reverse engineering the liveview. Just Google: openliveview, or go to
This app is in beta, but does a really good job and never had connection issues.

Liveview has become a usefull and working device!

LiveView Application has been updated! Now it works in background withs shown info in notification bar.

Despite that I think that OpenLiveView project is worth to lookup. It uses less memory and bring more notifications like GTalk and so on.
