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.

    Can you give us proper detail compiling the AOSP rom?? Is this tested btw? I tried compiling AOSP for xperia L . I get system/bin/akmd8963 not found.

    The binary files has the file name in the but not available in the zip?? To be more clear, this is the error message I got

    make: *** No rule to make target `vendor/sony/c2105/proprietary/system/bin/akmd8963′, needed by `out/target/product/c2105/system/bin/akmd8963′. Stop.

      Sorry it’s my mistake, due to license issue the akmd8963 was removed from the package, but I forgot to update the mk file.

      As a workaround, please simple remove the last line from vendor/sony/c2105/ (i.e. remove the line ” vendor/sony/c2105/proprietary/system/bin/akmd8963:system/bin/akmd8963 \”), then it should be built OK by the steps introduced in the README of the github project (I also updated the README with the workaround).

      I will fix the issue and ask our DW colleagues for help to publish a new package.
