CyanogenMod for the Sony Xperia T in Three Different Flavors
The Sony Xperia T is the device maker’s latest international flagship. Finally bringing its flagship’s hardware up to par with other top notch devices, the Xperia T looks like it may actually be able to compete successfully on a global scale. To speed that effort along, XDA Recognized Developer FXP and the team at the FreeXperia Project have built not just one CyanogenMod ROM for the T, but three.
You might recognize the FreeXperia Project from our article on the topic when they released CM10 on seven different Xperia devices.

Below this is the start of a standard...
