Sony Xperia T receives its first CyanogenMod 10 Nightlies build
The Sony Xperia T device is not even launched all over the world and it already got its first treatment from CyanogenMod team, as they announced it on their Google+ web page that the first official CM10 Jelly Bean Nightly build has been successfully launched.
This CM10 Nightly build has been launched under the codename ‘mint’ and it is destined for users of Xperia T that wish to test the latest Jelly Bean and CyanogenMod flavored custom ROM. At the moment it is only in its development stage but you should get a pretty stable build as the guy working to this project is ‘codeworkx’, who formerly used to work with Galaxy devices. He decided to work with Xperia and Sony devices because the Exynos CPU that comes with the Galaxy smartphones is not fully compatible with the Jelly Bean 4.1 firmware. That’s because Samsung decided not to release the source code for its Exynos devices, just like you’ve noticed in yesterday’s article the lack of CM10-M2 updates for the International Galaxy S2, S3 and Note.
However, this means that the best developers decided to shift their attention to other Android-based phone manufacturers rather than trying to release a fully working CM10 build for Exynos devices. This is great news for Sony Xperia T users as from now on they should get Nightly and even Monthly updates of CyanogenMod 10 which means that their device should get better and better performances.
If you want to install this CM10 Nightly build update on your Sony Xperia T smartphone, then you will need to head to Get.CM web site and download the latest ROM release. Also, after the ROM is installed you will need to flash the Google apps files and, all these actions can be applied only on rooted Xperia T devices.
