CyanogenMod 7 for Sony Ericsson Arc

After a long wait Sony Ericsson Arc finally gets CyanogenMod 7. It’s still in early beta stage but most of the functions are working. FreeXperia Team jerpelea is the one who is developing it. CyanogenMod is an aftermarket firmware for over thirty cell phones and tablets based on the open-source Android operating system. It offers features not found in the official Android-based firmwares of vendors of these devices, including native theming support.

They have made a custom Kernel and Custom Recovery as well. Since Sony Ericsson Arc doesn’t have or support recovery partition they had build the Recovery into the Kernel i.e. in boot.img file so the Recovery will be only available for CyanogenMod ROM.

We need to have the Bootloader unlocked in order for the flash the ROM. Keep in mind that once you unlock bootloader you might void your warranty. Flash ROM could brick your device so do it on your own risk.
