Open Devices

For some of the Xperia™ devices, we provide Android™ Open Source Project (AOSP) device configurations on GitHub. This means that the software will be open for you as a developer to use and contribute to. This is a way for us to support the open Android community, and it is also a tool for us to facilitate and verify contributions to AOSP.

We hope this tutorial will help you get started building your own version of Android for Xperia devices. Feel free to contribute your work back to our repositories on our Sonyxperiadev GitHub account. We will review and merge your code as soon as possible.
