cyanogenmodIf you own a Sony Xperia Android handset, you’re probably wondering when your device will receive the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The good news is that Sony announced a while back that 2011 Xperia devices will be seeing the update, although an exact date still remains unknown. However if you don’t mind flashing custom ROMs onto your Android device, and assuming you have the know-how, you might be interested to learn that thanks to XDA Recognized Developer FXP, seven Xperia devices now have access to CyanogenMod 10 Alpha builds. As expected with Alpha builds, not everything is working and there are bound to be bugs and whatnot which means that these ROMs are probably meant for testing and not meant to be used as a long-term solution. So if you own either the Sony Xperia Ray, Xperia Pro, Xperia Neo or Neo V, Xperia Arc/Arc S, or the Xperia S, head on over to the respective XDA forums for the download links and information. Once again we have to remind you to proceed at your own risk and always make sure you backup before going any further!
