The task killer myth! Battery and memory saving options.

I am sure you have heard once in your X10 life that you should use a decent task killer to kill apps running on background. After all, you have a 1GHz phone that behaves like a dumbphone (if not worse) in terms of speed. Some say killing apps saves battery and memory.

Don't be fooled!

Multi-touch on Xperia X10!

Good morning!

I realized not all of us have multi-touch (dual-touch + pinch to zoom) enabled on our X10. Some carriers blocked Android upgrades, other people have old custom ROMs, some have problems with Sony Ericsson Update Service or PC Companion. Don't worry, you'll learn here how to enable it; it requires root access, but it won't wipe any personal data or files!

Android 2.2 Froyo on Xperia X10!

Good morning!

Yes, I have Froyo (Android 2.2) running on my Xperia X10! It feels really great! Awesome speed, great performance! While Sony Ericsson doesn't take us officially to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, its possible to use a very nice Android 2.2 Froyo ROM developed at the XDA Forums. Everything works nicely, including HD recording and dual-touch. Its free and easy!

Before starting, know the risks involved and give credits to the ROM creator at XDA.

What is this blog and what it's not!


Before we begin, let me explain what is this blog to ensure you are in the right place and we don't waste each other's time!

This is the international version of the Minha Vida com X10 blog. It's meant to show a little bit of my daily experience with the Xperia X10 smartphone. We'll talk about the good stuff and also the bad things about it.

I'm not supported by Sony Ericsson nor any other company. It's a personal blog, an open space to share feelings, find out solutions, to suggest and to learn; an test environment for apps, sounds and images.

I made the original blog in portuguese because it was my first blog and I wanted to hit it's target audience: brazillian owners of the Xperia X10 (you might guess smartphones aren't that popular here, and those who have it usually don't have a clue about their devices' powers or features). Now I wanna make this whole thing international because I realized not to many people around the Xperia X10 world really know how to improve their experience with this handset.

I'm not an expert. I'm a regular user trying to help. Maybe sharing some tips in english will allow more people around the world to become happy after all. And maybe I can learn new things here, so I can "spread the Xperia X10 word". I will try to keep the tutorials as simple as possible, after all it's meant to be read by the regular Xperia X10 owner: you and me!

I  invite you to join this discussion and make your X10 experience more pleasant, always. Be welcome!
