Sony Mobile is committed to supporting the open developer community, and one way to show this is by publishing parts of our code as well as selected tools developed by our internal developers.

For some of the Xperia™ devices, we provide Android™ Open Source Project (AOSP) device configurations on GitHub. This means that the software will be open for you as a developer to use and contribute to. This is a way for us to support the open Android community, and it is also a tool for us to facilitate and verify contributions to AOSP.

If you want to build AOSP for your unlocked Xperia device, you find all the resources you need in the sections below.

Excited to see that y'all are opening things up
As someone who has been enjoying the Xperia 10 since launch, I'm excited to see that y'all are opening things up! It'd be amazing to see a list of Sony projects used in these phones and whether they are open source, whether there's a plan to open-source them, or details on why there is a necessity for them to remain proprietary. Having roadmaps for these things feels like a simple way to maintain straight-forward communication with users.

Thanks for sharing this with everyone and striving to keep things open!

Since now the kernel and firmware are freely available, when can we expect a build of TWRP to be available for the Xperia 10?
