Today, we’ve added Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) to all supported devices on our Open Device project. In addition, Xperia Z5 is also added to the program. As usual, you can access device configuration, software binaries and build guides through Sony’s Open Device program.
For all you open source fans, we’ve just added an AOSP Marshmallow (Android 6.0) configuration and binaries available for download, as part of Sony’s Open Device program. With these resources, you’ll be able to build AOSP Marshmallow for all Qualcomm based 2014+ Sony Xperia devices. AOSP for Xperia Z5 is included in the newest package, so that early adopters in the open source community can start experimenting now.
Through the Open Device program, we provide these resources early for the community, so that you have time to learn, build and test new Android features, or use them on your custom ROM. As usual, you can work with us to make the software better by contributing your patches upstream to GitHub. Open source is important for us and we welcome you to contact us, and give feedback on what resources you need and where can we improve.
On our AOSP List of Devices and Resources page, you’ll find links to all of Sony’s device configurations on the Sonyxperiadev Github. You’ll find everything you need on the AOSP for Xperia devices page.
