I managed to build CM 13 for this device. I'll make my builds available here and try to update regularly. I take no dev credit, I'm just a builder.

I build straight from the Cyanogenmod source on Github, minus the kernel, which comes from the Sony AOSP project.

Thanks especially to derf elot for the build manifest and the CyanogenMod, FreeXperia, and Sony AOSP contributors.

Instructions
  1. Unlock bootloader and install a custom recovery (suggest TWRP 3)
  2. Wipe system, data, cache
  3. Flash update ZIP
  4. Flash Gapps (optional)

Known Issues
  • AudioFX crashes constantly
  • Charging battery not always reflected in UI
  • Fullscreen video playback sometimes results in black screen
  • FM radio nonfunctional

Misc Info

Motivation: Most of the AOSP and other MM ROMs for this device have some deal-breaking bug for me, such as sleep of death or echoes when making phone calls, with the exception of the pure CM 13 ROMs. However, nobody's built one in some time, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

Patches: Most of the code was ready to build as is. I ran into one problem: the 3.10 kernel's device tree lacks some Qualcomm-specific board information, so boot.img fails to build. I copied it from the CM 12 branch and all was well. Patch against CyanogenMod/kernel_sony_msm: Attachment 3872045

Very cool. I am guessing no call echo here? That was always annoying. How is the camera (especially in the dark)?

Nope, no call echo, as long as you don't turn the volume too high. That ruled out all of the AOSP ROMs for me; have to be able to use my phone as a phone. Camera is exactly like the other CM-based ROMs, focus is kinda inaccurate, and video recording doesn't work. I haven't tried any low-light photos but I suspect they won't be very good.

Please do a factory reset, too. Sorry, all I know is that it works here.
