Hi!

I was wondering, is it possible in some way to download the latest Android version from Google servers and somehow install the Nexus image on Z1?

I love my Z1, but I really, really, don't need the Sony stuff on it (Yeah, I'm a purist). All i need to function is the camera (and of course the necesseties like WLAN, BT, making a phonecall etc, but I assume these are "standard" drivers that will work?)

There's no way to cross flash other devices firmware. What you can do is root your phone and just delete the sony stuff you don't need.

You could always flash Cyanogenmod or Omni Rom, they're both very close to stock Android
