Final notice: Since my Z5 died (it's broken into pieces, glass shattered) - development is effectively halted - NO more updates - sorry
This is a Stock (Sony) ROM Kernel and WILL NOT work on AOSP, CM, etc.
aka SunKernel for Z5 + Z5 Dual - Stock ROM (for now only stock)
this is my intermediate result on working on the Kernel for the Z5 (e6653, sumire
), which I'm currently using
There's now also
a Kernel for the dsds (Dual Slot/Sim)
), but I can't test if it works due to lack of that very device - Enjoy !
Keep in mind that building for the Z5 "Stock" ROMs and "Stock" Kernels, you're constantly facing the following tradeoff:
- compatibility with pre-built "core" kernel modules (e.g. texfat [proprietary exfat microSD fs driver])
compatibility with pre-built "goodies" kernel modules (e.g. video and other acceleration, hwcodecs, ...)
losing features that can NOT be replaced by similar ones (e.g. ecryptfs, wlan, exfat, etc.)
- when going too far the device doesn't boot or simply hangs on bootanimation
this resulted in a couple branches (at least several dozen) that are partially or totally broken

All other features, things should
work - no guarantees
Before starting to test/use keep in mind that this is WIP (work in progress)
that means - NO guarantees
backups before flashing are a MUST
(especially your microSD card content !)
stability, speed, improved battery and satisfaction are a great side-effect to have
You have been WARNED !

thanks for your great kernel base and support for all of the Sony Xperia devices - you definitely are a Sensei in that area !
another Sensei on the Xperia devices
Thanks for your great ROM + Kernel !
You are da man ! God's Kernel - there's truly no kernel like it ! @faux123
thanks for intelli_plug and Dynamic Fsync and all the other goodies - they are awesome !
Your kernels really inspire that there is more to be achieved
You (and all other devs I might have forgotten) truly push progress forward !
Linus Torvalds - you started it all !
