Known issues
  • Selecting a Mobile network manually will cause the 'Please wait...' dialog to stay even after the phone registered to the network. Just hit the 'home' button to make the dialog vanish.

Version 3.2 from 5. Nov. 2013 (download)
  • Again - New gapps package: http://android.eqmx.net/android/xperia/gapps_44_yuga_3.tgz. (Place it on /sdcard/ before flashing the update)
  • Nexus5-Style lockscreen
  • Include Launcher3 (AOSP Version of the new KitKat launcher)

  • New gapps package: http://android.eqmx.net/android/xperia/gapps_44_yuga_2.tgz. (Place it on /sdcard/ before flashing the update)

  • Support for USB-Mass storage / USB-OTG

Version 3.0 from 2. Nov. 2013 (download)
  • First release based on Android 4.4 - note that you must wipe your phone (eg: flashing userdata.img) before upgrading!
  • All Hardware (camera, audio, etc) seems to work OK, but there are still a few quirks (eg: shaky gapps package, sdcard issus). You should wait for 3.1 (and stay with 2.7) if you need a stable phone

Version 2.1 from 27. Jul. 2013 (download)

  • Added Nexus boot animation
  • Enabled UINPUT in kernel config (support for bt keyboards/mice)

Version 2.0 from 26. Jul. 2013 (download)
  • First build based on Android 4.3. Everything seems to work OK so far, but you should probably stick with 1.5 (4.2.2) for now if you really depend on your phone (the release only had a few hours of testing so far)
  • You are STRONGLY advised to do a full wipe if you are coming from 4.2.2 (fastboot flash userdata userdata.img)
  • You also need to update your gapps package to 'gapps.yuga43_shaky.tgz'. This gapps build is still based on 4.2.2 but was patched to not crash on 4.3

Version 1.5 from 18. Jul. 2013 (download)
  • This is the last (and most stable) release based on 4.2.2
  • Security: Fixed the 2 'master key' bugs
  • Option to finetune the screen brightness in Settings -> Xperia Z Settings


Installation / Upgrade

  • Extract the archive (unzip pabx_aosp_yuga*.zip)
  • adb reboot-bootloader
  • fastboot flash boot boot.img ; fastboot flash system system.img
  • If this is an initial installation, also run: fastboot flash userdata userdata.img # NOTE: THIS WILL WIPE YOUR /data - only do this on first-install
  • fastboot reboot


Please note that the system.img file does NOT include gapps - you can either install them manually or use my handy .tgz file to do it automatically:


Your phone will now reboot twice: 1x to install gapps and 1x to finish the installation.
The gapps package is based on the 20130813 release from goo.im. And no: There is no need to upgrade the .tgz after a new gapps release as all included applications will update themselfes via google play.

Building from source

Everything you need is on github at: https://github.com/adrian-bl-yuga/device-sony-c6603

Code:
$ repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b android-4.3_r2.x
# copy-n-paste the local-manifest from: https://github.com/adrian-bl-yuga/device-sony-c6603
$ repo sync
# Download the v3 blobs from sony and extract them
$ ( cd kernel/sony/k253 && ./_build.sh )
$ lunch full_c6603-userdebug
$ make -j 8

How do you install gapps without a recovery? Through adb somehow? Instructions?
Changing the animations to .5 instead of 1x and forcing 2d animations made it much faster.

Thanks!
Edit: tried to do fastboot flash zip gapps.zip, and it succesfully flashed, but it didn't work.
Edit again: Never mind, the command wasn't allowed, I guess it didn't work.
Last edit: Manually installing .APK's resulted in quitting as soon as opened. I kind of suck..

Convert the gapps into a tgz, push it to /sdcard. Then run adb shell and do:

mount -o remount,rw /system
cd /
tar -xvf /sdcard/gapps.tgz
...and reboot

I know that the gpu is somewhat laggy. Anyway: there are more serious bugs - this is just an early release.

What's the camera quality like? Same as the sony firmware that comes with the phone? or more like CM10.1?

Edit: Nevermind; gonna try it myself. always better idea.

No Idea: My phone was running Stock for less than 5 minutes :)

But i'm using the blobs from the 1.253 release - so the quality should be the same as in the latest stock release.


Btw: I'll be on holiday for about 10 days, so don't expect any releases/updates in the next few days.

Coming from your AOSP build for the One X, I was holding out on a possible upgrade to the Xperia Z.
I might just have found a compelling reason to upgrade after all!

You took the words right out of my mouth..... I too used to run pabx's rom on my One X.
I am really looking forward to the development of this ROM. Good to see you on the XZ scene pabx!

Nice rom, hope to see a new version soon, getting another Z (probably) so I can help out developers in this forum on testing ;)

Big thanks for your hard work. I`ve tested your previous version about 1 hour, but was not satisfied with youtube. Also complained about the missing recovery for flashing the gapps. Don`t get me wrong. I love Linux, adb and the command line, but flashing the gapps is so comfortable. Will test your new version soon, but for now I will stay with CM-10.1 where I`m complaining about the 2 seconds delay after you hit the power button :D
