Ok so the Xperia X10 community has had it hard and there’s a lot of anger and resentment in the forums and all over the net. I know I’ve voiced my views with many degrees of hurt till I’m blue in the face but it doesn’t change much and generally puts everyone in a bad and defeated mood.

So I was thinking that while the amazing developers are hard at work trying to open the bootloader which would in turn bring the dawn of custom roms to the X10 what could I do to help them and the community look forward and do something positive.

So I thought rather than hug trees and kiss your neighbour why not start a thread with the sole purpose of designing a Rom in preparation for the day when the bootloader is cracked open.

I’m no coder but I can create graphic assets for UI’s and then I got to thinking what if we took a look at all the Roms out there that looked good or have excellent features that we would want in an X10 rom and from those ideas and new ones we could start the look and feel of a Rom with us in mind.

Now that would cheer everyone up surely. It could be something for us all to be proud of and for the other kitchens to take cues from as well.

So firstly lets post screen shots of things we think are ace, features we love or want, animation styles that are to die for even if they are scanned pencil sketches on paper. It would keep us occupied and give the developers some breathing space.

Just an idea :)

I love the idiea that sounds great wat ik would like to see are a few standard apps in the rom as rainy days titanium back up silent mode a good agenda msn talk pingchat and a good working alternitive internet browser.

if they could be put in the rom then we dont have to download them from the market.

Having particular apps included is always a bonus but i'm thinking about the Rom features them selves and how it works to make using the phone better or at least different.

See the link for an example (Not that i want my phone to look like an iPhone copy BTW)

A great idea. I hope this will lead to some great rom's. I'm new to android and xda and I only know Python and Free pascal, so I cannot help with programming, but I will surely post it here if I come up with something.

If i remember correctly jerpelea has already compiled CM6 for X10..

I would like to see the Desire HD ROM to be ported . As it has already been ported to Nexus One and the Desire running the same Snapdragon QSD8250 it should not be much of a trouble..

I was thinking that a site just like Slax builder http://www.slax.org/build.php would be amazing.

If people could choose what apps, themes etc etc then download the custom rom I think it would be a hit...

If I knew more about rom dev I would love to have a go at seeing if this kind of thing would possible for x10 android roms. I'd be up for the dev of the site.

A Rom with user selectable options sounds great, also sounds like a lot of work for the Dev's as essentially the rom would be compiled by the user via a gui then installed.

I think we should face the facts of the past events and give up on SE changing their direction on the X10's software lifecycle.

In all their statements not once do they apologise for not meeting the dates they set or not be close to the expectations of the X10 owners. In truth i sense an air of annoyance that they have to make statements on their own blog at all.

Future devices will be better and not so lacking on smart phone hardware standards but that will be based on associated developer requests rather than us or the general publics want and wishes.
That’s why I thought of this thread so we can end the disappoints because we’ll create what we want.

I'm not sure this is the right place to put this, and please don't freak out, you Windows Mobile haters, but I would like to see the X10 be able to dual boot Android and Windows Mobile.

I'd suggest a clean ROM :) Apps can be installed later..

I'm with you. A nice clean, stock ROM would be the best. Everybody can install apps for themselves (heard of AppBrain? ;)). Designing a ROM with pre-installed apps will be very difficult, since everybody has other tastes/likes. (For example: I hate everything pre-installed. I want to be able to choose what to install on my phone. I also hate that the pre-installed apps that come with a phone can't be uninstalled. They're just taking up precious space...)

Could be cool with duel boot on the x10i. But i would say, focus on getting a clean room first, for when the bootloader is cracked. Just with standard stuff like the browser, etc.

I just need a clean n OPTIMIZED for our snap dragon and GPU and memory ...thats enough ...

really news on bootloader has dried up... and lock screen in x10 is killing me and making me break the phone...

i simply wish we had a better ROM with all those resource hogging apps out of the system.

also i simply wish we had the first key in the bottom to answer calls .. instead of lock screen... that would be really great ...

720 P recording and better audio drivers with optimized and improved bass would be a real addition...

also wish dev somehow enable 16m color...

I am tired of SE .. had been a seriuos SE fan for nealry 5 yrs now

t610-k700-k750-k800-k850-w995 all major phones from them... but those days we had se-nse for custom tunning the drivers and it was fun... but now with this bootloader [email protected] i am missing the real fun..

if SE cant do anything ... they should atleast open up the bootloader to dev`s...

    it is alredy done...but in my test it was laggy,and slow..maybe im wrong, but it is only my opinion..
    It is far from done since the rom provided here is just a preview and nothing works (yet). Check out YouTube to see how fast this rom is! ;)
