FXP309 brings CyanogenMod 11 support to Sony Xperia M
The FreeXperia Project is happy to announce the first new supported device for 2014, Sony Xperia M!
First revealed in June 2013, Sony Xperia M is one of Sony Mobile’s devices designed for the lower mid-range market. It sits at the bottom of the Qualcomm Krait 200 Family (2nd Gen) and features Qualcomm MSM8x27 SoC. This has dual-core Krait 200 CPUs at 1.0GHz and Adreno 305 GPU, with that you also get 1GB Ram, 4GB storage, a 4.0 inch 854×480 screen, and a 5MPx camera.
Support will start at FXP309 with CyanogenMod 11.
The codename for Xperia M is Nicki, so make sure you download the correct ROM!
Big thanks to Ron Gokhale who did most of the work for this device. Since this is his first contribution to FreeXperia Project we asked him a couple of questions:
FXP: Why did you choose a device from Sony Mobile?
Ron: Sony was the only OEM at that time making a device with MSM8x27 chipset. I wanted a good mid-range phone with Qualcomm chipset for daily use, Xperia M best matched my requirements.
FXP: What difficulties did you have while working on CyanogenMod?
Ron: Frankly speaking no difficulties. All my other devices that I worked on were legacy but no major problems to bring CyanogenMod to Xperia M.
