[ info ]

ok guys so I was testing few things... saw that the Sony ZU GPE was released and then saw the disk dumps in this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2570197


since sony was kind enough to release the kernel sources for the ZU GPE.. i just corrected the kernel sources to support Z1 (as both devices have same board) and managed to get a bootable kernel..

I think this is now clear for public testing!

so far:
  • kernel boots
  • device boots in OS
  • phone calls work
  • bluetooth works
  • audio playback works
  • video playback works
  • 3G data works
  • GPS works
  • NFC works
  • camera doesnt work [for now ]
  • wifi now works [WiFi FIX]

i invite all interested devs to help with fixing the broken stuff!



[ proof ]



dont bother about model number in screenshot


[ WARNING ]


THIS IS A PORT FROM ANOTHER DEVICE!

some things will not work! that is expected!



[ requirements ]
  • Xperia Z1 - i am testing on C6902 & C6903 (users need to flash additional package for C6903!)
  • unlocked bootloader




[ how to install ] {NEW - ONLY FOR v2}
  • you will need a recovery kernel (use my DooMKernel)
  • reboot into bootloader
  • hotboot into the recovery kernel
  • Code:
    fastboot boot DooMKernel.img
  • the device will start booting my old kernel
  • keep pressing volume UP keys to enter recovery
  • you can flash the ROM zip in recovery
  • no need to wipe data!
  • ONLY for C6903 users: while still in recovery flash Z1-Stock_C6903_FW_4.3_Files << THIS IS CRUCIAL OR YOU WILL GET BOOTLOOPS!
  • NOW reboot from recovery
  • thats it!
  • device will start booting into Sony 4.4.2 GPE




[ how to install ] {OLD - ONLY FOR v1}
  • you will need a recovery kernel (use my DooMKernel)

Very nice... Is it using ZU camera drivers (that's why camera don't works)?

Should be great to run Android 4.4 ROMs based on AOSP for Z1.

Well, Sony took 1 month to release sources for .257 FW, hopefully they won't take longer to release .290 sources!
