New CyanogenMod 10 release for Xperia devices brings camera fix

by XB on 04/11/2012

in Firmware


The latest release of CyanogenMod 10 (CM10), based on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, has been updated to include a fix for the camera. The FXP145 release from the FreeXperia team brings camera support for the first time and should mean that most can use this ROM for daily use. The camera will now work for all 2011 Xperia devices and for the Xperia acro S, Xperia ion and Xperia S. You can download it here.

There are a few compromises though, there is no 1080p video recording and only 5MP resolutions will work in the default camera application. There also seems to be an issue with Facebook crashing on some phones. However, patches are already available for the camera here and Facebook here. These will be rolled into the next FXP146 release. Seems like a great achievement by the FreeXperia team and brings a stable enough Jelly Bean ROM to those willing to try it.

Thanks Andy!

    I’ve installed this on my arc S. It’s the ICS camera app and only supports up to 5MP, plus regular Gallery FCs make it unreliable. I’ve replaced it with Camera ICS+ and Gallery ICS from Google Play – which is the same “fix” available on the arc XDA forum. Camera ICS is the same UI but with more options (up to 8MP for me plus JPEG quality settings, etc.) Panorama mode doesn’t work though. I haven’t had any issues with Facebook. This is now good enough for daily use IMHO and will only get better. Congratulations to the FXP/CyanogenMod team.

    installed and it runs smoothly, for 5mp problem, can try use other camera app such as camera zoom which can set up to 12mp..

    but few problems faced like purple-ish image when the image captured with flash on..this doesn’t happen on official ICS build, tho..probably due to the beta libs they’re using..

    but great news anyway..hope to see it fixed :)

    if u flash this rom in xperia s and a new update from them come is it updated from any update menu or i need to reflash new rom?

  • XperiaBlog

    Sorry we misunderstood you, we thought you were referring to the patches. We don’t know where the FreeXperia team sourced the beta camera lib files, so it would be inappropriate for us to comment on this.

  • Marvic Fenech

    Can someone please confirm if the front camera is working?
    Thanks.

  • Mehdi Solamannejad

    Still willing to stick to the stable “official” CM9.1. It’s amazing.

  • gonyex

    did CM 10 will work normaly on xperia active?

  • reptile64

    Στις ρυθμίσεις πηγαίνεις εκεί που λέει “σχετικά με το τηλέφωνο” (η τελευταία επιλογή) και εκεί θα βρεις το “CyanogenMod updates”

  • reptile64

    Try before you buy! :P
    It’s stable as hell for me! :)

  • reptile64

    workin’

  • Mehdi Solamannejad

    I tried FXP 144 :D wasn’t that good. I’ll give it another try once they actually upload FXP146 files.

    I have an Xperia pro (MK16i) and I would like to try CyanogenMod 10 out but I have 4 questions (more or less):

    1. HDMI is working or not?
    2. Physical keyboard and back light is working or not?
    3. Is there any way to use may camera at 8Mpx and not 5?
    The most important and complex question since I’m new to this:
    4. How can I install it on my phone (4.0.4 stock ROM, not rooted, nothing) and can I go back to official ICS soft version and how?
    Thanks for the help! :)

    1. Not sure about this because I don’t use it anymore since stock GB . But I don’t think so . Correct me if I mistaken .

    2. Physical keyboard working like usual . If the backlight is not working , try use KeyboardLED apps . Search on Google .

    3. Use Camera ICS from playstore . It’s basically same with stock camera plus more options .

    4. First of all , you need to unlock your bootloader . Flash the kernel inside the ROM (boot.img) , wipe data , cache etc and flash the ROM using CWM recovery . You can always back to stock ROM by flashing it back using flashtool .

    But I suggest you try AOKP by KangXperiaProject !

    much faster than CM10 IMO !

    does this work on xperia SL?

  • Igneel

    Nope. Still not working. FC and had to clear the camera’s data to stop it from going FC again.

  • Igneel

    FXP144 was a lil’ buggy. You’ll have reboots from time to time. FXP145 fixed it and running perfectly well. Except a little bug with the camera and wifi hotspot. Based on the changelog, FXP146 will have the wifi hotspot fixed :D

  • Avery Navas

    such great news! These developers are truly the best… we’re getting closer to a real android experience, thanks to them!

    Use 4.2 camera app. There works.

  • xlynez

    what are you talking about…the fix was provided with the beta camera libs from sony. it has nothing to do with the extremely buggy fix that was created by phantasm.

  • fpdesign
