As when many Xperia devices all from 2011 to 2013 lineup are getting unofficial CyanogenMod 11 android 4.4 KitKat builds from many Xperia developers, Xperia S users were asking when a ROM will come for their devices. Here it comes, HoloUI team has created an Unofficial CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4 KitKat for Xperia S exclusively though in alpha stage working smooth.

Previously we have seen Unofficial CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4 KitKat build coming for Xperia 2011 Devices from LegacyXperia Project and for Xperia Z1, Z,  ZL, ZR, Z Ultra, T, V, Go, P, Sola, U, SP, Tablet Z; many builds from which coming from FreeXperiaTeam. Now almost every Xperia device have got Unofficial CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4 KitKat build except for Xperia Ion.

As per HoloUI team, ROM is still in alpha stage, if you want to try it you can. Installing such ROMs require you to unlock the bootloader of phone. Keep in mind to have  a backup of the DRM keys before unlocking the bootloader for safety.

ROM Details

  • Android – 4.4 KitKat
  • Kernel – 3.4.0
  • Version Number – HoloUI-4.4-Alpha_1


Video playback is still an issue and Force close error on many games.

What is working ?

Camera, Sound, Mobile Data, W-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Voice calls etc are working fine.

If you are interested in installing this ROM, have a look into developer thread for more details.

Xperia S Unofficial CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4 KitKat Dev Thread


P.S. There is a slight dispute going on this ROM as it is built from RaymanFX 4.4 source so the XDA dev has asked Xperia S users to wait for a bit for his Unofficial CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4 KitKat build for Xperia S and consider this ROM as temporary OpenSEMC pre-pre-preview, it’s you wish to got with which dev.

If you have installed this ROM, let us know how was your experience…
