CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.

Code:

* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/
Known issues being worked on:
* The recovery on first attempt fail to mount /system

HOWTO

Install instructions:
first time
- power off the phone:
- hold vol+ and plug usb to boot into fastboot (blu led)
- fastboot flash boot boot.img (from cm10 zip)
- fastboot reboot
- enter recovery, on boot led will be violet for 3'', during this period press vol+
- flash rom zip
- flash gapps zip
- wipe
- reboot

for update just flash rom zip from recovery
Google Apps are not included in this ROM. You'll need to find those yourself if you want them.

Not going past bootscreen

I have followed the instructions above for the CM9 lt26w hikari but the device is stuck at the Free Xperia logo at bootup. Really not sure if I´ve done anything wrong. The boot.img (kernel) is supposed to be found in the zip-file I suppose, anyway that´s what I used for the fastboot flash.

----

I have now made the procedure from start and it works this time! I really don´t know why it didn´t work the first time. But now I am real glad to finally have CM9 on my Xperia device. Thank you!

I don't even know how to download.
The latest FXP will work on all devices?? There's no downloads for specific device.

ANT+

I have installed CM9 on my Acro S, and the only thing so far that doesn´t work is ANT+. I have installed the ANT+ radio service but ANT+-enabled apps does not recognize the service.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

I am very happy with your FM Radio application, but I noticed that it not supports the media keys (play / next / prev) of the headset.
Can you add this function to the radio .

Thanks! but can I flash it back to stock rom?:p I afraid that if it would void warranty even flashed back to stock rom/kernel:rolleyes:

Probably the warranty is void. Sonymobile says the following: "Please note that you may void the warranty of your phone" when looking at the information for unlocking the bootloader. But this is absolutely a risk that is worth taking.

Once u unlock bootloader, most probably void. :(
EDIT: But you must relock bootloader, unroot and remove any recovery when u want service. Maybe it works.

Worth taking? :silly:

I would suggest u continue to use stock rom/kernal.
Since this phone just released, we still don't know whether this phone is perfect.
