Here is Pure AOSP 5.1.1 r.8. Just a proof of concept. Camera is NOT working. Everything else does. Kernel includes all latest camera commits, but despite their claims "Welcome Sony Camera", it does not work. By the way, all my hardened features are included. Also, wide selection of networks, volte, et all....

I built this rom yesterday with Sony vendor branch and obviously, there was no baseband, but today, I switched vendor to that of FXP and there is a fully working GSM/Data.

Fox! With the exception of a quicker boot (because boot animation is really light), there is NOTHING that makes this rom stand out or any better than Dirty Unicorn or Paranoid Android. The rom isn't lighter, isn't faster + a lack of features. Granted, there is no CM bloat, but there isn't any CM bloat in DU or PA. This is my opinion, of course...


Instructions:

1. Don't flash this in recovery, it is not a flashable zip
2. Unzip the file, you will get boot.img, system.img and userdata.img
3. Flash in fastboot: fastboot flash system system.img, then fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
4. Don't flash boot.img If you want to have Supersu or a file manger (as Documents does not show in UI), instead, reboot in recovery, (your old kernel) and flash Supersu and CM file manager, then reboot in fastboot again
5. In fastboot: fastboot flash boot boot.img
6. Reboot and enjoy

To return to your regular rom, you will have to fastboot your old kernel with recovery and then restore...

Hi, I'm new here (and I don't have my phone rooted and unlocked bl. I have it only for one month :D ), but I watch sony's repo on github and today I saw this: https://github.com/sonyxperiadev/device-sony-rhine/commit/46364f36bcefda1c838f28ac7c586826d394577c I think it may fix the camera, but I'm not sure. Can you build a new build ? Thank you.

They are slowly moving towards enabling camera. But I think once it fully works, they will announce that and with a big bang. Last time I tried after they screamed "welcome Sony camera", and then when it didn't work, they said: What, did you expect the camera to work based on kernel driver only? LOL. No, I expected the camera to work because they said "welcome Sony camera." So, because it takes time, I'll wait until the camera is really there...

Again, don't worry, when it really works, they'll say so...
