Default (Help needed) A few questions before buy it...

Hello XDA

I'm going to buy a Xperia C Dual, but, here is a few questions...

1. Did Sony release the open source for Xperia C?

2. Is the CPU and GPU open source / Drivers released?

3. Can we have a stable CyanogenMod, AOKP, Paranoid Android... ? (Read question 2)

4. If the answer for questions 1, 2 and 3 is yes, why this device still doesn't have any custom ROM?

5. Will the device receive any Android upgrade?

6. Does the screen resolution (540x960) support the Themer app (by MyColorScreen)?

Reply me please
I want to buy this device or the Moto G
Motorola Moto G (XT1033):
Stock ROM

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (SM-T210):

Okay....time for the .......

Answers !!

1.Nope

2.Not sure

3.Locked bootloader, so custom roms still in the air

4.Read no 3

5.The ultimate question for any xperia C users, although it recieved a small upgrade which is hardly superb

6.I havent tried the themer app mate so, no clue there


Moto G is a good bang for buck sure, but will only 8 GB of total memory be enough for you ?
