Please do. I'll be happy to use it..
Well, you can build AOSP, there is a guide on the Sony developer world website, but you have to have Ubuntu on your PC. But also @Sjll has a great starting point with his config file. I did find some guides, but for a normal user it's probably way too much. TWRP is easier though.
Can you give me more detailed information about your problem? I might run into it as well.
No, you select the device XQ-AU52 (or 51) at i think step 5.
Is it feasible to use a virtual machine for compilation considering ram limitations? I am likely going to screw up dependencies on my main PC since i'm using arch-based and my laptop doesn't have enough ram
Yeah, it should be fine the compile speed will be a little bit slower, but you can pass the -j flag.
i ended up hosting an ec2 instance on aws and built 12.0 however i forgot AOSP has very little features out of the box
i will upload it to sourceforge
There is a guide on fat-tire.github.io, but you can take a look at Sjll's version of the manifests and see if there are any differences (it's in the main thread at the botton).i will upload it to sourceforge
is there a ""known good"" guide for building unofficial los devices? i found a few on google and my current plan is to sync the 19.1 branch for the los repo and combine it with device sources found in sonyxperiadev/local_manifests. i'm unsure if it's going to work.
