Today we’ve added Xperia E3 and Xperia T3 to our open device project, which means that developers can now build their own version of AOSP for most* Qualcomm®-based Xperia devices released during 2014. We’ve also updated the source code for Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia M2 to improve stability.
To get started building AOSP, head over to the AOSP for Xperia section here on Developer World. Download software binaries for KitKat, and follow the AOSP build instructions to download, configure, build and finally flash the source code onto your device. The source code and binaries released today can be used as a base for developing your own version of Android for unlocked Xperia E3, Xperia T3, Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia M2 devices.
As usual, you should be aware of that this software is not intended for daily use as there are important limitations. For example, the camera is not working and the modem is not enabled, which means you cannot take photos or make phone calls.
If you are eager to get your development underway, head over to our AOSP for Xperia section, where you’ll find all resources you need. And don’t forget to stay tuned to the latest AOSP updates from Sony!
