OmniROM device roster grows by six

The Android world is definitely not lacking in custom ROMs but a few, like CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, and AOKP, have risen to become the more popular ones. One new contender, OmniROM, is slowly but surely building up its army by adding six more smartphones to its list of supported devices.

Aside from giving users a more vanilla and more liberated Android experience, one of the side benefits of CyanogenMod is bringing Android to devices no manufacturer, or even Google, would dare go. In particular, the popular custom ROM has been the savior of many older devices that are relatively capable of running more recent Android versions, such as some of Sony's Xperia smartphones from 2011.
