Default Android AOSP 4.3 Compiled for Xperia Z

Since everyone always loves MOAR VERSION NUMBAH...

Android 4.3 for the Xperia Z. With a BIG shout out to Sony Mobile for hosting their own git repository for their deviceshttps://github.com/sonyxperiadev/device-sony-c6603.

This is compiled from AOSP, and has nothing done beyond that. Simply added the Sony repo to Android 4.3 AOSP, and built. As per the Sony AOSP releases, this does not have functional Radio (no phone calls or SMS!!!) or indeed any connectivity.

Working:
Wifi

Not Working:
Mobile network
Bluetooth

I will not tell you how to make mobile network work, but it is not difficult and just involves some binary blobs from memory... Sony don't have the right to distribute those officially, so I won't do it either

In light of this not being a working build, I will not post it as a zip, but as fastboot flashable images. Unlocked bootloader only. C6603 was used to test, other models entirely at your risk (ie. don't bother).

Links:

All files needed are in
http://goo.im/devs/pulser/XperiaZ/4.3AOSP

and will appear there shortly (upload done, it's still propogating)

Feel free to mirror, share, modify, edit, tweak, fix, etc etc etc. I am not like certain individuals who go ZOMG NO MIRRORS PLEASE... Go on, mirror, make a torrent if you want, and share it if anyone actually cares about this It's really not that good, but hey...
Top secret information:
 
Yes, you are also permitted to use this... Yes... that's right, you can use it!


To install:

fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img

(optionally, I did it, shouldn't be needed)
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
fastboot flash cache cache.img


Build instructions to replicate :

Get android 4.3 sources.
Get sony c6603 information on repositories and add to local_manifests for 4.3
Get latest v3 blobs for phone and tablet Z
Put them into vendor/sony/
Repo sync
Make

Lmao... They might be, I'm not... I just typed a few commands, tweaked a couple of stupid errors I made, and it was done.

You are also missing the Camera and getting RIL to work requires more than dropping in some blobs.

I already merged 4.3 in my repo: https://github.com/adrian-bl-yuga
I do not reply to tech questions via PM.

Yeah, camera blobs are not "officially" made available by sony.

I had just spotted your repo actually and was going to see if it had the RIL etc
