CyanogenMod and FreeXperia Team, United to Enhance The Custom ROM for The Range Xperia

The creator and head of CyanogenMod, Steve Kondik, we were surprised by a good morning announcing on his Facebook that was going to work at Samsung Mobile. All seemed a great news, though with double-edged, since that probably would leave helpless the Custom ROM most required within the platform Android.

Days later, releasing a statement to encourage supporters, where he clarified that the project of CyanogenMod He would not die, and would in fact move forward thanks to the other members, but not promise anything since all had a life and work performed. Back on the subject, recently informed us that the new Sony Ericsson Xperia 2011 they would also receive their version of CyanogenMod, but we were not having much information on the subject, until today.

The Group CyanogenMod It had planned a new version of its Custom ROM to adapt it to 3 models of the new range Sony Ericsson Xperia 2011, namely, the Xperia Play, Xperia Arc y Xperia Neo. On the other hand also was the Group FreeXperia Team, that is one ‘ faction ’ within XDA Developers rooted to the manufacturer Sony Ericsson, to deliver Custom ROMs free to their terminals. The news today is that they have decided to join forces to thus included in the future revision of CyanogenMod more terminals of the Xperia range, expanding it to a total of 10 South.

  • Xperia Arc
  • Xperia Neo
  • Xperia Mini
  • Xperia Mini Pro
  • Xperia Play
  • Xperia Ray
  • Xperia X 10
  • Xperia X 8
  • Xperia X 10 Mini
  • Xperia X 10 Mini Pro

In addition, they have made public that, from now, FreeXperia Team will be part of the CyanogenMod group, so development of this Custom ROM on Sony Ericsson handsets will greatly benefit in the future. Great news if, like me, you are holder of a terminal of the Xperia 2011 range and were waiting for this customization.

For the final version of the 3 terminals planned for CyanogenMod before this news should not be too much, but with this new presentation will have to see if they decide to delay it further to include all the pack terminals. We must also bear in mind that the official update for Gingerbread 2.3.4 via OTA It is being received in many of the terminals of the Xperia range, so it is possible that they are waiting for more hairs to present a more complete upgrade. We will keep you informed as soon let us know more.
