Xperia X10, legendary Sony Ericsson device which seems forgotten by the developers and discontinued by the manufacturer has come back with a bang, guess what AOSP Android 4.4.2 KitKat ROM is now available for it. Xperia X10 features 384 MB total RAM in system which disregards the essential requirement of running KitKat 4.4.2 version, as it needs atleast 512 MB RAM for perfect installtion.
XDA user Tof37 has come up with the first of its kind Xperia X10 AOSP Kitkat 4.4.2 ROM which has successfully booted on many users handset, though it is still pre-alpha 1 stage so it has a lot many bugs and some essential features are obviously not working.
