Another quick device update as our maintainers continue to improve the CM11 code branch. First the Sony fusion3 family of devices – Z, ZL ZR, Tablet Z – have all been updated to 4.4 Sony guts (10.5.A.0.230) and the latest from Sony’s GPL kernel source. This brings along with it a boost in performance over previous builds as things become optimized for Android 4.4.4.
The Motorola ‘moto_msm8960dt’ device variant is getting a rebranding to be simply known as ‘ghost’ – encompassing all previously supported variants of the Moto X (1st gen) device. Notably, however, we are officially dropping support for the ‘obake’ device (Moto Droid Maxx Dev Edition) moving forward. This change is in effect starting tonight. Existing Moto X users on the former ‘moto_msm8960dt’ device can update to ‘ghost’ builds without wiping. The obake support is officially being retired due to lack of a maintainer (and poor sales of the platform in general).
The CM11 M10 release is approaching this weekend and another device status refresh will be posted to our Device Status wiki page to make note of all recent developments and announcements after its release.
