[FTF Available] Sony Xperia M Dual Now Also Receives Android 4.3

About a week ago, the Sony Xperia M started receiving its official update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. While not KitKat, it at least proves that Sony still wants to show its mid-range device  some official firmware lovin'. Naturally, many Xperia M Dual (C2005) owners wondered when the dual-sim variant would receive the update. Thankfully, that time is now. XDA Forum Member navidhz first shared the news early yesterday, and it was later confirmed by Sony on the Xperia M Dual's official firmware page....

Sony Xperia M Receives Android 4.3, Update Captured and Converted to FTF!

Although Android 4.4.3 is already undergoing internal testing, most devices other than modern flagships have yet to receive an official taste of any version of KitKat. In fact, it's not uncommon for older or less powerful devices to be prematurely forgotten in update limbo. But rather than complain that they're not running the latest and greatest firmware, we can at least be happy when they do receive some official firmware love from their OEMs. The Sony Xperia M is one such device....

Official CyanogenMod Available for the Xperia M

Android is an amazing OS because OEMs can offer their users devices that suits everyone's individual needs. A high-end flagship is not the best choice for everyone, hence why there are quite a few mid-tier and low-end devices released to the market. One OEM that releases cheaper, but still nice devices is Sony. One of their devices intended for the mid/low-range market is Xperia M, code named Nicki. The device features some decent technical specification consisting of a dual-core 1 GHz Krait...

Boot Multiple Roms on Your Sony Xperia M with MultiROM Xperia

MultiROM is probably a name that many on XDA will recognize, especially if you're an owner of one of the officially supported devices, such as the Nexus 7, for which MultiROM was originally developed by XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar. As you may have guessed from the name, MultiROM is a tool that enables one to boot multiple different ROMs on a supported device, without going through all the hoops such as wiping a ROM or performing backups. Well, it seems like...

Functional Android 4.4.2 KitKat Arrives on the Sony Xperia M

Although only released last year, one wouldn't really say that the Sony Xperia M is a very distinguishable device, especially in the vast sea of Android phones. With some middle of the road specs including a 4-inch screen with 480 x 854 resolution, a dual-core 1 GHz CPU and 1 GB of ram, one will probably be forgiven to think that it's simply 'just' another Android device. But despite this, it's still great to see it receive attention from developers,...
