Xperia L

Xperia™ L added to our AOSP for Xperia project on GitHub [open source]

Today we’ve added Xperia L to our growing Android™ Open Source Project (AOSP) for Xperia devices, letting you build and flash Android 4.4 (KitKat) on your unlocked Xperia L. This is the first time we’ve added support for a device with the 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM8230 dual-core chip. Read more about the project and how to participate after the jump!

Current status of the AOSP for Xperia L project
Even though the software is not suited for everyday use, and important functions like Bluetooth™ and GPS are still disabled, there are actually a lot of things working already. It is possible to make phone calls, send and receive messages, surf the Internet through either the mobile network or Wi-Fi® connection, take photos and shoot video clips. The LED light, NFC and sensors are also working (at least partially).

Want to participate?
As for all of our AOSP for Xperia devices, all collaboration and contributions are handled through the GitHub tool. In the readme files, you’ll find all the instructions and information required to get started. Make yourself familiar with the code, and feel free to take a look at the ‘issue list’ to see where you might be able to help out and possibly add your own contributions to the code. And don’t forget to check out our other devices included in the AOSP for Xperia devices project.

    Kindly update Sony Xperia L to Android 4.4 (KitKat) as soon as possible , because it has not received Android 4.3 which rest of Xperia phones received , and also now its very late to provide Android 4.3 update so please carry forward this request and update the Sony Xperia L to Android 4.4 , and please be quick enough as it is fast approaching its 18 month update period’s end. Even if update period ends at least update the device to Android 4.4

      If you check care fully the light keeps on when you have the screen unlocked. The light is proximity sensor which senses if you are answering using the phone itself, so that it can turn of screen light to save battery. You can test this with following steps:
      1- make a call
      2- while the call is in progress, move your finger above the red light; here you can see that the screen light goes out.
