Xperia™ open source archives

Sony is pleased to provide the open source archives for all Xperia™ devices that are based on Google’s Android™ OS. We provide source code of the software licensed under the GPL or LGPL, and some other open source licenses allowing source code distribution.

All of our open source archives are available for download directly from this website, in the Xperia open source archives section. The code is typically provided in a compressed archive, such as a tarball (tar file).

We can also make these files available on CD-ROM for a charge covering the cost of performing such distribution, such as the cost of media, shipping and handling, upon written request to Sony Mobile Communications AB, Open Source Software Management, Nya Vattentornet, SE-221 88 Lund, Sweden. This offer is valid for a period of three (3) years from the date of the distribution of this product by Sony Mobile. We will provide the latest release unless a specific Release ID is requested.

If you encounter any problems while accessing or downloading the open source archives, feel free to contact us at
