The developer community has been busy and has ported CyanogenMod over to these “older” Xperia devices. These unofficial versions of CM 11 still run relatively stable but there are a few issues that are known about and that should be highlighted: On the Xperia S, there is no stereo sound, the headphones won’t work, and the FM Radio isn’t functional. On the Xperia Ion, a bug inhibits the LED notification to work while charging.

Although the Xperia Dual M has already received the official KitKat update from Sony, the Xperia M has been left in the dust with Android 4.1.2. No big issues are noted with the CM 11 version for the Xperia M with even the GPS functions working properly.

Instructions on how to download and install the proper files for CM 11 can be found over at the XDA Developers Forum:
