The Sony Xperia TX is the slightly taller and thinner sibling of the late 2012 flagship device from Sony, the Xperia T, albeit lesser known. And like the Xperia T and the rest of the 2012 lineup, the Xperia TX was unfortunately given the no-go on any future updates after Jelly Bean 4.3. But as seen with unofficial Android 5.0 builds popping up for Xperia devices of similar age, such as the Xperia S and Ion, aftermarket developers always have these things covered, and the Xperia TX is no exception.

Android 5.0 on the Xperia TX comes in the form of an unofficial CyanogenMod 12 build courtesy of XDA Senior Member updateing, however it is still in a highly experimental state. This means that it may well be quite unstable in usage, with some features missing, and you may experience failures to boot up the device. On the other hand, features which are functional include:

  • NFC
  • Bluetooth
  • Google Apps
  • GPS
  • Camera
  • Calls

Despite the instability of the ROM, fixes for bugs are continuously being sought, and this progress as well as remedies for bugs can be seen and are provided in the forum post.
