Aww man, it's on! Just be careful and don't brick it though (not that it'll happen). Keep us posted!

To the mods: Please move if this is posted in the wrong section, or remove it entirely if it breaks any rules.

Will it not work out of the box since it is the same hardware of the c6802?

No, this is only for devs so they can use it in their own ROMs, or if they want to use this on its own. It is not possible to flash this as it is right now, so you'll have to wait

It's the system folder. So you'd need to create a series of instructions on where everything goes, permissions, root, and recovery reflashed... (i.e. flashable zip)

48 hours and I bet someone will have it working. I'm not able to at the moment. I think most of you know why..

Would it work to flash the system.img thru fastboot? (And boot.img if necessary)

On the Galaxy S4, we flashed the GE rom, but had to use a touchwiz kernel. Not sure how it would work on the Ultra..

Inside a system.img will usually be 3 different compressed files. (depending on the phone)
Only one of these files will contain all the folders that we are usually familiar with:

app
bin
etc
fonts
lib
media
...


Its best to wait and see what Sony have done with the GPe devices. Probably nothing has changed, and partition info will be the same... but there could be a couple of changes that may brick your device. It's very unlikely, however I'd recommend not flashing the system.img without know exactly whats in there.

If no one tries anything nothing will be gained

Now then. I got the GPe to boot on my Xperia. Too see what works and what not

edit: Well its buggy... and i think it has to do with me using krabappel's 4.4 kernel. Not sure how much i dare goof around with this Playing away...
