FreeXperia brings Xperia M CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4.2 FXP309 build

Sony recently certified 15.4.A.0.21 firmware for Xperia M which is speculated as Android 4.3 update but the chances of getting official Sony Android 4.4.2 KitKat update on Xperia M is very less and in the meantime FreeXperia Team has decided to support Xperia M CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4.2 development and first FXP309 build has come up now.

Xperia M  CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4.2 FXP309 build is now available for download and Xperia M users can test it if they want to taste the android 4.4.2 KitKat flavor on their device. You need to unlock the bootloader to install CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4.2 FXP309 build on Xperia M. Unlocking bootloader voids the warranty.

XDA Dev PecanCM started a lot ago on bringing CyanogenMod to Xperia M and now here it comes.

Xperia M FXP309 Build

Download Xperia M CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4.2 FXP309 build from below. It is especially for Xperia M ( Nicki ) , not for Xperia M Dual.

Download FXP309-cm-11-20140302-UNOFFICIAL-nicki.zip

We hope to see some more low end Sony devices like Xperia E to get support from FreeXperia Team so that they can also enjoy the CyanogenMod on their devices.

Check the official thread by XDA dev here.

Let us know Xperia M users, if you have tried this CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4.2 FXP309 build on your device. Drop your comments below.




Xperia M 15.4.A.0.21 firmware, Xperia M Dual 15.5.A.0.16 firmware certified – Is it Android 4.3 ?

Xperia M which at present features android 4.1.2 version and Xperia M Dual features android 4.2.2 version, just now for both phones a major firmware is certified on PTCRB which seems as an upgrade to android version. Xperia M 15.4.A.0.21 firmware and Xperia M Dual 15.5.A.0.16 firmware is spotted on PTCRB besides some other firmwares which were certified a day before.

15.4.A.0.21 firmware is certified for Xperia M C1904 and C1905 which also saw 15.1.C.2.9 firmware and 15.1.C.2.8 firmware getting certified for it a day earlier. 15.5.A.0.16 firmware is certified for Xperia M Dual C2004 and C2005 which also saw 15.2.A.2.14 firmware getting certified a day earlier.

At present Xperia M is on 15.1.C.2.8 firmware which means a jump from 15.1.C.x.x to 15.4.A.x.xx firmware is huge update. Check below the 15.4.A.0.21 firmware certification for Xperia M on PTCRB page.

Xperia M 15.4.A.0.21 firmware Xperia M Dual is on 15.2.A.2.5 firmware which means it will be moved from 15.2.A.x.x to 15.5.a.x.xx, which again indicates a major update. Check below the 15.5.A.0.16  firmware certification for Xperia M Dual on PTCRB page.

Xperia M Dual 15.5.A.0.16 firmware

Rumors which these firmware certifications for Xperia M and Xperia M Dual has started that they might bring Android 4.3 update for them, though Sony didn’t mention about them in their android 4.3 update plan but a few days back we saw Vodafone Australia confirming that android 4.3 for Xperia M is in testing and it may come if everything goes right.

We hope if it is android 4.3 update anyhow, Sony should also roll it for Xperia L and Xperia C. Excited Xperia M and Xperia M Dual users, let us know. Drop your comments below.

Xperia M Android 4.3 testing scheduled says Vodafone Australia

Sony rolled Android 4.2.2 on Xperia M Dual but it left Xperia M on android 4.1.2, the then Xperia M users are asking us when they will get android 4.2.2 update. As per Sony’s earlier plan for android 4.3 update, only a few phones will be getting android 4.3 for now and the ones which are left are Xperia M, Xperia L, Xperia E, Xperia C.

We just noticed on Vodafone Australia blog where they have posted a software update schedule for some handsets, it seems Xperia M will directly be updated to android 4.3 from android 4.1.2, at present status of Xperia M android 4.3 is “testing scheduled”. Besides Xperia M, Xperia SP and TX are also seen with android 4.3 status as in “testing”.

Check the Xperia M android 4.3 software update plan of Vodafone Australia.

Xperia M Android 4.3 Update - Vodafone Australia

When we asked concerned Vodafone Australia support that are they sure that Xperia M will get android 4.3 as Sony clearly mentioned on their blog that Xperia M will not get android 4.3 so in return we got a reply that “As soon as everything runs smoothly in testing phase, Xperia M will get android 4.3 update”.

Check below the copy of our conversation with the Vodafone Australia support on Xperia M Android 4.3 update confirmation.

Xperia M Android 4.3 testingIf somehow Xperia M gets Android 4.3 update by chance then it will be a big surprise for us as Xperia L left out with android 4.2.2 update and Xperia M getting Android 4.3. Kindly note that it may or may not come, as Sony has not come up with any official word on Android 4.3 for Xperia M till now.

Last night Xperia SP got new 12.1.A.0.266 firmware certified and Xperia T, V getting  9.2.A.0.295 firmware certified on PTCRB, it can be the case that it is the firmware which Vodafone Australia has put up on their blog.

How do you feel Xperia L users, if Android 4.3 is rolled on Xperia M in future and nothing for Xperia L. What do you think Xperia M users, excited about android 4.3 huh ? Drop your comments below.
