Sony Xperia Z2 gets official CyanogenMod 11 nightlies


Over the last couple of years, Sony has opened up its stance and devices to developers, allowing the modding community around its devices to thrive. However, since most of the Xperia devices are not sold in the United States, the development community takes its own sweet time to reach its peak for the device.

The Xperia Z2, however, is looking to be an exception to this rule. Just over a month after it went on sale in most regions of the world, the handset has started receiving official CyanogenMod 11 nightlies, based on Android 4.4.3 KitKat.

The first build of CM11 for the handset, codenamed sirius, does have some issues including the camera and NFC not working properly. So, until and unless you are desperate to try out CM11 on your Xperia Z2, it is recommended that you wait for a couple of weeks so that the CM team irons out all the bugs.

Also, keep in mind that installing CyanogenMod on your Z2 will require users to unlock the bootloader of their handset, which in turn will void its warranty.
