There is someone on XDA, his name is Munjeni, who gave up in porting CM11 aka android kitkat due to Bluetooth issue, video recording, wifi tethering(I think), Youtube compatibility issue. It was so troublesome and he gave up because it was really hard to fix. You can check XDA and type CM11 on Xperia SOLA in the search engine box

Simply great mobile set. Camera performance is really good and Battery performance is also in satisfactory level. It would be best if the RAM size is 1GB. Considering the price, it's a great smartphone designed by Sony.

This phone is gorgeous and is very beautifully designed. This is a piece of art. The photos displayed on this phone is incredibly gorgeous and elegant that even the top-end Samsung phones can't compare with it. If this phone has 2g ram, it will be perfect.

For me sola is perfect phone, small but not too small, perfect pocket size, fast and responsive, very stable software, great camera and picture quality, timeless design.
My current software: GB 2.3.7 (6.0.B.3.184)

There are few things with it's use.

First, stick with GB and not upgrade to ICS. ICS had few bugs in my case, brake up during calls, when receiving call after answering phone would still ring, sloooow at opening programs, especially phone app, SMS led notification not working, simple terrible. With GB all above works fine.

Second. I'm using phone just for calls few times a day. Sometimes GPS and internet also. Battery lasts in standby 7-10 days! On heavy use 2-3 days. How is that possible?
Well, there are few things to consider: you need new and latest SIM card, sola doesn't like microSD cards so if you don't need it get it out cause some SD cards do draw battery, in network setting set it to work in GSM mode only, turn off animations, last and important, before putting the phone on charger to fill up the battery, TURN IT OFF AND THAN CHARGE IT or IF LEAVING PHONE ON, AFTER CHARGING TURN IT OFF, WAIT A MINUTE OR TWO THAN TURN ON.

That's it. Before battery would last 3 days tops, on heavy use just 1 day! It took me 2 months of experimenting and reading comments to solve battery drain problem.
I have all other usual apps and of course wifi, GPS turn off.
Forget all task killers, battery calibrations, rooting and God knows what else. Stock GB works just fine.
