Sony's new new smaller-than-average smartphone is getting a bit more appealing for the DIY crowd with official support for CynaogenMod, courtesy of the FXP dev group. Nightly builds for this device are now listed in the CM download portal.

As most flagship smartphones creep up in size, the Z1 Compact (codename Amami) is a 4.3-inch device with a 720p screen. That's almost tiny by today's standards. It has the same Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 20.7-megapixel camera found in the regular Z1, though.

The Z1 Compact is supported on CM 11, which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat. Since these are nightly builds, there are likely to be bugs, but not as many as the experimental build, which is still listed on the download page. At any rate, flash at your own risk.
