Open source

Sony Mobile is committed to supporting the open developer community, and one way to show this is by publishing parts of our code as well as selected tools developed by our internal developers. We have four different open source categories: AOSP for Xperia™ devices, GitHub projectsCode examples and code modules and Xperia open source archives.


One of the things we like the most is to share knowledge and tips aiming to help and assist you as a developer. In this section you will find everything from concrete coding tutorials, to tips on app promotion and legal advices – here you can tips and tutorials for all the angles of being a developer.

Sony developer tools

We’ve made a number of valuable developer tools available to help you in many stages of app development. You can use these to help you with troubleshoot issues, debug code, analyse files in your APK file, and more.  Some of the tools are even open sourced!
