AOKP, the popular ROM for women and for men who are secure enough in their manhood to use a ROM with pink unicorns in it, has merged the necessary code to support Sony's Xperia Z and ZL flagships into its github. This means official nightly support begins with the next automatically-built nightly, scheduled for tomorrow. Of course, if you don't want to wait until then and wish to build it for yourself, you might be interested to know that the official guide to building AOKP was also recently updated.

Cid has found a pair of new friends on the DNA, as unofficial alpha builds of AOKP and PAC have now joined CyanogenMod 10.1's unofficial alpha build on HTC's latest and greatest Verizon phone. While some key functions on the phone are still being worked on, you can test these builds with functional phone, radios, GPS, WiFi and mostly functional audio. The ROMs are based on the unofficial CyanogenMod device tree currently being developed.

The Cyanogenmod team hasn't used the term "release candidate" since the Ice Cream Sandwich days of CM9, but today the team has seen fit to use it to label the latest build that has begun rolling out to supported devices. This might be the last milestone release before the 10.1.x builds start rolling out, according to the team's blog post.

Within a day of its availability online, the T-Mobile Galaxy S IV already has an unofficial build of CyanogenMod on it. Steve Kondik (Cyanogen) posted a screenshot providing proof just over an hour ago (as of the time of this writing) on Google Plus.

Sony’s recent openness is paying off for its devices as another one joins the Xperia Z & ZL with CyanogenMod support. The CyanogenMod ROM has officially made its way to the Sony Xperia TX. CyanogenMod took to Google+ to announce that the Experimental build for the Xperia TX (hayabusa) is now live.

Sony has had my attention since they announced the Xperia Z. I am still intrigued even after having read many negative reviews. As much as I love Xperia Z's design, the software was a cause of concern even though the skin is not that heavy. To allay my concerns, though, today CyanogenMod has released CM 10.1 nightlies for the Xperia Z & the Xperia ZL. CyanogenMod support is almost always a harbinger of good things to come from the development community. It not only is the most popular custom ROM, but most other popular AOSP-based ROMs run on CM's device tree.
