Sorry if its too noob question.

I was wondering, Sony have released some AOSP Sources for Xperia. Now, I was thinking, if it is possible to build one KitKat For XV/XT by modifying those, and as we already have the binary drivers from stock FTF dump.

If it is possible (not just theoretically, also practically)

I am downloading BBQ Linux now and planning to do this. Any guidelines will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Its possible, but you'll get nothing but a plain AOSP rom without custom rom features.

Thanks for assuring I don't need the Custom features, I just need to be able to run all the Sony Software (I miss CyberShot ) with KitKat on my XV

My BBQ download is finished, tonight I'm going to setup the whole thing and start Studying on this Let's hope it's not too tough for me to complete

Nope, that's just a bad dream

Sony Released AOSP for XL and they gave some propitiatory binary. I Will first try to compile for XL (Planning to get my brother's set)
Try to run Cybershot for L. Then, if it works, I will try to find the same/similar binary files from my XV Stock dump and then try to build one AOSP for XV.

So far this is my plan. Even if Cybershot porting is not possible, I could learn something New, that's the real goal here
