The Folding@Home project, brainchild of Pande Lab and Stanford University, has a long-time partnership with Sony since the launch of its PS3 client back in 2007. Today we are proud to announce that the Folding@Home Android client along with its web server component have been released to Open Source here, in GitHub’s repo.
Today, we announce our latest addition to Sony’s Open Devices program by adding support for Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact. This means you can now build and flash your own version of Android O on these two new devices.
You can now develop Android O ROMs for selected unlocked Xperia devices via Sony’s Open Devices program. The recently released build guide gives developers the necessary tools and instructions to begin their development and the new software binaries adds support for Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZs, Xperia XZ, Xperia X Performance, Xperia X and Xperia X Compact. This means you can now build and flash your own version of Android O on all devices mentioned above.
The Xperia™ XZ Premium has now been added to Sony’s Open Devices program. This means you can now build and flash your own version of Android N on Xperia XZ Premium devices. This software is meant for developers and can be unstable due to its early stage.
The free Theme Creator tool from Sony, allows designers to easily create themes for Xperia™ devices. The latest version, Theme Creator 1.0.0 BETA comes with enhancements that include a simplified UI, clearer navigation and over 500 editable graphical resources. There’s also new tutorial videos to help you get started.
