XDark ICS custom ROM brings full touchpad support to Xperia PLAY

in Firmware, Xperia PLAY

Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY users shouldn’t feel too dejected on the lack of official Android 4.0 ICS support given the continued support from devs who are working on the device. For example, the XDark ICS custom ROM was released late last month and is based on Android 4.0.3 but importantly brings full touchpad support.

Many users are reporting it as a very stable ICS ROM and it includes all of the appropriate framework files for the touchpad. A number of games have been tested successfully including 9mm, Assassins Creed, Dead Space and NOVA 3. The touchpads also work in FPSE (PSone emulator). The XDark ROM is currently on version 0.1, but developer xdarkmario is promising v0.2 very soon. You can find out more details on the ROM here, but remember you will need an unlocked bootloader on your Xperia PLAY to install it.

Thanks Theo!
