First build of Marshmallow for our loved Ultra :)

Working:
-Boots
-Screen
-Brightness
-Orientation sensor
-Ambient light sensor
-Wifi
-Bluetooth
-IMEI shows up, still have to test with SIM

Not working:
-Camera
-NFC
-GPS (haven´t tested yet)
-Internal SD doesn´t mount right - As pointed out by tgascoigne, if you´re playing around with the mount points and Android asks you to format it, DON´T. You will wipe the boot and system partitions.

Changelog:

Alpha 3:
-New device files

Alpha 2:
-Fixed modem
-Fixed libperipheral_client

Alpha 1
Initial release

GApps:
Most GApps currently don´t work because of the missing sdcard links.

Okay, so you can confirm that the radio/modem does not work? You can make calls or anything.
Fixes for both modem and in call audio here: https://github.com/tg-togari-marshmallow

Feel free to merge into this build.

Key changes are:
  • Add modem firmware (/system/etc/firmware/modem.*)
  • Replace libaudcal.so (for some reason the one in the qcom vendor dir posted by sony doesn't work)
Should work for other rhine/rhine-like devices, also

Thanks! I'll merge and test modem tomorrow, and add Sony's new vendor blob which should fix libperipheral_client.

Where did you guys get the modem files from ?
I'm trying to build it for the Z3Compact. Should I extract them from the current 5.1.1 build ?
Yep, the best way is extracting them from the current firmware; these blobs work (at least on the Rhine devices, but it should be the same for Z2/Z3). There are some GitHub repo's that have the blobs but I spoke to jerpelea and these are illegal.

You got that part wrong, my friend.
They are illegal to share for Alin, that is Sony.
Let me quote "What community does is on a gray line".
Its fine for someone in the community to share them, but not for Alin/Sony.
