    CyanogenMod easily takes the crown in the Android ROM world. The custom ROM is the most popular around, supporting a plethora of smartphones and tablets all over the spectrum. It may take a little while for some devices to get support, though, which is a major source of frustration for the true Android geek.

    Sony Xperia Z2 users have been pulling their hair enough, and today they can rest assured that their smartphone is officially supported by CyanogenMod 11. Sony’s flagship handset gets added to the list with the first CyanogenMod 11 nightly, which the team has named “Sirius”.

    The Xperia Z2 is one hell of a smartphone. It fared amazingly in our review and walked away from our drop test without a problem. But we do know software is one huge factor in user experience, and sometimes the official UI and other ROMs simply don’t cut it.

    Do keep in mind there is always a level of danger to tinkering with your smartphone. Rooting your device, flashing custom ROMs, unlocking your boot loader and the like can all be the cause of your warranty being voided. Damaging your device is also a possibility, so be sure to know what you are doing before you get flashing.

    If you do feel confident enough to flash this CyanogenMod 11 nightly, you can go ahead and get the 260.66 MB file straight from CyanogenMod’s download page. Enjoy, and don’t forget to let us know how it’s working for you.

            There are flashable zips which will make you able to restore most of the Sony apps that we’ve all come to love, yes. :d
