Xperia Acro S Receives CM9 and CM10

Just a short time ago we brought you news that the Acro S was rooted. As the only Android phone out there that can swim, that’s great news. However, that is not all that developers had in store.

With the device rooted, developers could get started on creating the things that make XDA go ’round, including ROMs, kernels, hacks, mods, and others. As a result, the Sony Xperia Acro S now has CyanogenMod 9. Not impressed? Okay, it also received CyanogenMod 10 on the same day.

XDA Recognized Developer FXP, who regularly brings CM goodness to Xperia devices, released both builds. There are some issues with the unofficial CM10 build related to the camera, and the known issues on the CM9 build include:

Known issues being worked on:
* The recovery on first attempt fail to mount /system
* ALS is disabled (broke PowerManager)

To better keep track of issues, FXP has provided a bug tracker. Aside from the issues reported, users have predominantly good things to say. And for many, the ROMs can be used as daily drivers. For more info, check out the CM9 thread or the CM10 thread.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
