CM12.1Official Sony support for the Xperia M (C1904, C1905) might have ended a while back, but the handset lives on thanks to the developer community. Well if you own the handset you might be pleased to hear that official CM 12.1 nightly builds have landed for the device – this means Android 5.1 support. This is down to XDA developer PecanCM who has done the hard graft in getting these builds live. Head over to the CyanogenMod website and look for code name “nicki” to download the latest CM12.1 nightly build.

    Good to read.
    Fingers crossed for Dual SIM activation in CM12.1 at some stage.

    Xperia M – Last Sony pocket-able phone with good usable features at a reasonable price.
    The only Sony phone you can get now in this size format, is the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact…

    would be better news if they gave all m series official support…and if timel gets banned.

  • Andre Lemard

    I doubt he would get banned. I think he creates multiple accounts over and over again.

  • Naail Zahid

  • Kenneth F

    Well, I can’t make it work, the posted guide doesn’t work for this, and there is no help to be found on this, so I think this is ’empty news’.
