*** Disclaimer This software is without warranty and I will not be held accountable if it blows up, bricks or starts a zombie apocalypse. I am a developer BUT I am not a kernel/android rom dev!
This all started because I wanted to get my wife a cheap android phone that would stay up to date with the latest android. A cheap phone with SD storage and Marshmallow seemed like a great combination hence the E3. Sony has been great at supporting the developer community by providing Marshmallow binaries and working on open source components.
I am providing this rom in my spare time and all of what I have done can be done by anyone with AOSP code. Any changes I make I will endeavour to release to github should I stop developing this rom.
Guide to flashing
fastboot flash boot boot.img fastboot flash system system.img fastboot flash userdata userdata.img --> if it doesn't work first time
you also probably want the newest recovery of TWRP or CWM
repo with all the kernel patches I added to the E3 if someone wants to build it for themselves
21/03/2016 boot image update new unified display driver with flamingo specific fixes for display not turning on (seems to affect some devices worse than others)
6.0.1 Release - updated boot image should get rid of display issues. Updated system image with security patches
New releases are in the downloads section and dated.
6.0.1 Release, thank you all for waiting, stock build first. I really need to learn how to do nice release notes..
updated blobs which should mean a more stable build. Also we are getting closer to getting a working camera.
Two new system builds
with modem files and one without
Phone has arrived in the country should receive it soon
this will mean I can continue work on this device, I cannot just take my partners phone and mess with it unfortunately ;-D
Phone arrived, have got a working system image, am uploading a backup from twrp now.
Yay I have a working system.img for you all to flash and I put some extra effort to add a nice boot animation
I have also added the stock kernel(boot.img) as it seems to be more stable than erikcas one at the moment.... possibly
I've also attached the bootanimation should you want to use it on stock or whatever. Is not mine, can't remember the person who made, it, was posted to reddit/r/android if I find it again I'll attribute it.
New boot.img with improved io performance, you should see significant improvements if you've experienced lag. Thanks goes to @vinay for his work on the flamingo kernel. One small change removes CRC checking which improves performance by up to 30%
Hi Guys am in the process of producing a new kernel and ROM with ZRAM support. Hoping to get something in your hands soon.
