Official CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies For The Sony Xperia Ion Now Live At Get.CM

Getting tired of running the stock OS on your Xperia Ion? If so, official CyanogenMod nightlies are now available for the device (codenamed aoba). The first CM9 build hit get.cm just a bit ago, so you're only a download away from having one of the smoothest, best supported AOSP ROMs on the planet.

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.

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).

[Leak] Sony Xperia Tablet Surfaces Packing Quad-Core Tegra 3, Android 4.0, And A Slew Of Accessories

Details of Sony's newest contribution to the tablet world, rumored to be called the Xperia Tablet, showed up last night on German blog Mobiflip. The 9.4" (1280x800) slate appears to be the successor to last year's Tablet S, as it keeps the similar "folded magazine" form factor, albeit in a 42% thinner shell.

CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightlies Now Rolling Out For The Sony Xperia Z Ultra

When it comes to hardware aesthetics, Sony has some of the best industrial design around. The 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra is undeniably attractive in its glass and metal casing. The software isn't so appealing, and not just because it's Android 4.2 - Sony's custom interface leaves a lot to be desired. If you'd like to run something closer to AOSP, not to mention a latter version of Android, the indefatigable CyanogenMod team is now offering nightly builds of CM 10.2.

Sony usually leaves their hardware alone in terms of bootloaders and other anti-modding methods, so current versions of the Xperia Z Ultra should be good to go if you've got a custom recovery installed.

[The Android Police Podcast] Episode 21: Buffering You Into Purgatory

Welcome back to another week of the Android Police Podcast. I have to open this post with a bit of an apology, as our attempts to get the live show rolling this week were thwarted at every turn by technical gremlins - we should be up and running again next week, though. You can still listen to this week's episode in its full, recorded glory, though.
