Hello too all the "legacy and low activity devices" users :)



I'd like to share you something that will allow x10 to live a little bit longer ...


So here it is ... Kitkat is here !

The bug list is quite long but I wanted to share with you this preview ...

DOWNLOAD it here


What is working and not ?


Working : hmmmm it boots ;) that's the most important


Not working :
  • sd Mount : problem in kernel compilation against rom
  • recovery access : same reason as above
  • wifi : kernel / device tree to fix
  • camera
  • sound : kernel to fix
  • ...

The ftf file I share comes with 3.0.8 kernel BUT Ion memory manager is not working ...have boot problems with it ..


Hope you"ll enjoy it even if it's just a pre-alpha version but I promise to do much better.

Thanks to Evervolv team for their amazing work, CM Team, Scritch007 for his 4.3 device tree I used and avoid me days of work :) and of course Achotjan and Feravolt for their advices :)

Note : Flash this file only if you know what you're doing ...

The sources will be available asap, once I fixed some few stuff (repo sync etc ...)

SOURCES

To compile with PMEM memory management :
android_device_semc_es209ra-pmem-version

To compile with ION memory management (not booting yet)
android_device_semc_es209ra-ion

KitKat is known to run on lower-end devices, but X10 don't have the required 512MB* of RAM.
Anyway, good job.

AnTuTu, Android 4.4.2 and X10i

I installed SetCPU, ES File Explorer, Root Explorer, Business Calendar, FSP2D and even started to install Google Play Store.

Didn't notice any apps outright failed. Google play probably needs correct infrastructure in place to work.
I was trying to be slack and install an old Google play and then have it detect it was old and re-install all the new correct stuff. Failed

Root Explorer and ES File Explorer are very usable with Alpha Android 4.4.2.
Didn't change or save any files so not absolutely sure on that part but root access is supported.

I can confirm 3G and HSDPA are functional at some level.

AnTuTu runs and returned 3045 clocked at 1190MHz.
Both 2D and 3D graphics are a long way from supporting high level applications.

FSP2D returns 32FPS stdev=4.77

But, all this may be taking the mickey out of the Alpha phase as there is still much work to be done on the core drivers before noob users should be even allowed to touch it.

Top marks to @Tof37 and those supporting him, as this is one small step for Tof37...but a giant leap for the XPERIA X10i

good job mate! its good to see that 4.4 booted perfectly on X10.
there are a little problems in rom. clock, settings, launcher works fine(launcher gives fc on walpaper change)
phone dials up fine, but there's no audio neither the mic works.
browser gives black screen but i am sure it is connected to internet and loads stuff.

sd card, camera doesnt work as stated in OP
