Sony Xperia T Joins CyanogenMod 10 Roster, First Experimental Nightly Build Already Live

Moments ago, CyanogenMod's Google+ page announced that Sony's Xperia T, the flagship device we first covered during IFA 2012, is joining the CyanogenMod device roster, offering a link to the device's Gerrit code review page and a quick James Bond reference.

What's more, the Xperia T's first (experimental) nightly build is already live in CyanogenMod's download center.

If you've got an Xperia T and have been itching for CM goodness "shaken, not stirred," keep a close watch on get.cm (linked below) for the latest nightly builds.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

[Updated: Now In Nightlies] CyanogenMod Dropping ROM Manager For Its Own OTA Update System

Update: The new updater should be available in the latest nightlies (rolling out tonight). Once you flash, head into Settings > About to set your update preferences! via arcee

1[1]

If you've ever used CyanogenMod, then you already know it comes bundled with ROM Manager. That's the case for one reason: so users can quickly and easily pull updates to the ROM. However, this presents a problem of sorts. CyanogenMod is completely open source, but ROM Manager isn't. Therefore, the team wanted an update solution that will allow CM users to pull the latest builds to their devices, but is still open source.

Hands-On: How CyanogenMod 10 Fixed My EVO 4G LTE

You likely noticed our coverage regarding the arrival of official CyanogenMod (experimental) nightly builds for, among other devices,  HTC's EVO 4G LTE. As someone who's lived with the EVO LTE for several months now, this was big news.

Normally, we steer clear of covering the majority of custom ROMs, as development for many Android devices runs at a fast and furious pace, and coverage can quickly become dated. The improvements CyanogenMod 10 offers, though, especially over Sense on the EVO LTE, are certainly worth coverage. In this post, we'll take a quick look at CM10 for the EVO, how it changes the device's overall experience, and why, if your EVO is not running Jelly Bean yet, you're missing out.

Cyanogen Mod 9.0 Stable Released For 21 Devices And Counting

CyanogenMod is a pretty big deal in the Android modding world, and there's a good reason for that: it's fast, lean, well-featured, and supports a ton of devices that manufacturers have abandoned. When Android 4.0 was released, the CM team made it clear that CM9 (based on ICS) would be a long time in the making, as they were going to focus on doing everything properly and cleaning up the code. And now, as promised yesterday, CM9 stable is rolling out en masse.

So far, the supported devices:

  • LG Nitro HD/Optimus LTE
  • Samsung Galaxy Tabs
  • Samsung Galaxy Note (Intl)
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus (GSM/CDMA)
  • Sony Ericson Xperia Mini Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy S II (Intl/AT&T/GSM)
  • Sony Ericson Xperia Neo
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • Samsung Epic 4G
  • LG Optimus Sol
  • Samsung Nexus S (+/- 4G)
  • Sony Ericson Xperia Arc
  • Sony Ericson Live With Walkman

Clearly the list so far is dominated by Samsung and Sony Ericson, but builds are still going up every 20 minutes or so - the build bot is just churnin' them out.

Motorola Xoom, ASUS Transformer, Transformer Prime Get CyanogenMod 10 Test/Preview Builds

With the level of anticipation surrounding Jelly Bean and CyanogenMod 10, pretty much any news of a working build is good news. Today, test/preview builds of CM10 have surfaced for Motorola's Xoom as well as the ASUS Transformer and Transformer Prime (tf101 and 201).

Of course, since these are preview builds, they aren't perfectly stable. It's also worth noting that unofficial builds carry no guarantee of support or update.

That being said, the Transformer builds are surprisingly functional with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, sound, camera, video acceleration, some dock functionality, and most sensors functional. GPS and light sensor functionality isn't quite there yet, but most of the device's critical functionality is present.

With everyone anticipating the introduction of fabled CM10 builds, the CyanogenMod team is still hard at work bringing official CM9 support to even more devices.

It's worth noting, of course, that since these devices are just receiving their first nightlies, you may run into a bug here or there. But that's part of the fun of staying on the cutting edge of CM support, right? To grab your device's nightly build, just hit the appropriate link below.

[Update: Q&A Added] Video: Steve Kondik's I/O Meetup Presentation On CyanogenMod Now Available On YouTube

For those who missed it, Steve Kondik, the founder and lead developer of CyanogenMod, along with several other members of the CM team gave a compelling talk in San Francisco at the start of Google I/O. Delivered during the SF Android User Group Meetup (hosted at Yelp), Kondik's talk took a look at CyanogenMod's role in the Android world, some of the project's goals, solutions, and the challenges the CM team faces in getting CM to new devices, explaining everything from conflicts with proprietary drivers to locked bootloaders and more.

Thanks to Marakana, the talk is now available to watch via YouTube, with the subsequent Q&A session coming "as soon as it's available." Without further ado, here's the video:

Update: Here's the Q&A from that same session:

The Android development community couldn't be more on fire today now that Android 4.1 has been fully open sourced.

CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies Drop For Sony Xperia Arc And Neo

CyanogenMod (CM) has long been the modding community's custom ROM of choice, and for good reason: it takes the goodness that is basic Android (AOSP) and adds a hearty dose of all-around improvement. The list of devices supported by CM is quite a long and impressive one (truth be told, they do a better job of supporting devices than the manufacturers do), and last night, cutting-edge nightly CM9 releases dropped for the Sony Xperia Arc (Anzu) and Xperia Neo (Hallon).

[Download] First CM9 Builds Released For LG Optimus 2x And G2x – Get Them While They're Hot

Earlier today, Ricardo Cerqueira (aka RC of the CM team) posted on Google+, teasing that a CM9 build for LG's Optimus 2x (P990) would be available soon. For some time now, the CM team has been keeping a spreadsheet on Google Docs, tracking the P990 build's progress, which indicates that, as of 2/9, ICS for the Optimus 2x is all but fully functional, carrying only "partial" functionality for the phone's camera and video playback capabilities.

About an hour ago, RC followed up with another post, linking users to download mirrors of the first CM9 builds for both LG's Optimus 2x and G2x (P999).
