Since the Xperia M aka nicki is no longer maintained I decided to start my own build and I thought I share it with the community.

Full Disclosure: I am not a developer. If there are bugs in any build, I cannot solve them. So always do a backup before flashing.
Also if you do not know how to flash: leave it be. I will not help with flashing problems.

I will try to keep it up-to-date.

You can download it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7J...ew?usp=sharing

Android: 7.1.2
Security Patches: May 2017

I intentionally posted not in the development section, since I am not developing but only building.

Bro you shouldn't post it in original development but you can post it in Android development as you are building the rom for the device and many of the people port roms they also don't develop nor fix bugs but post it in Android development as they are building the rom for the device

Hi,
I don't understand your request. I pulled the sources from LinOS Git. There is nothing done on the source.

So basically you're keeping the ROM updated with latest changes from lineage OS source code , I mean bug fixes and security patches etc.

Yes. As a courtesy to the people who cannot compile their own ROM and to give s.th. back to the community who helped me a lot of times.

Hi @Komapatient,

Glad to see you once again around here, think we last talked when you were using the Xperia V on LineageOS.

Happy to see nicki is not fully dead and that its users can benefit from newer builds.
However there's a big concern here, I pushed the Nicki official removal for two important reasons :

- Device sources are no longer updated. If there's no real issue it's fine, but might appear.
> Issues like autobrightness flashing in a weird way upon device wake/unlock is among the biggest issue fixed / wip since the changes stopped.
> Checked in my huashan sources to find common relevant things for nicki, I just pushed an overlay cleanup and fix for MMS non-Data use.

- Kernel sources are highly outdated. To put this in a easy way, we can judge the security status
> to be around December 2016 and February 2017. Therefore the security version you share here is only the ROM sources,
> though a good portion of the security patches are actually to be worked upon for each kernel.

You can find our internal CVEs vulnerabilities tracker concerning the nicki 8x27 kernel here : https://cve.lineageos.org/android_kernel_sony_msm8x27
Someone should at some point stand up and start looking at them one by one,
fixing the ones related to the kernel version by cherry-picking, testing then pushing to gerrit.

You can take my sony_msm8960t kernel as reference if you wish, only the most recent CVEs are a work in progress,
and you should therefore easily see which CVEs concern your 3.4 kernel and find the commits in my history.

I'd gladly merge commits uploaded to gerrit if they are valid and properly authored / clean.

Hope this makes the current status of Nicki a bit more clear.

Bye.

@AdrianDC
Thank you for your clarification. The kernel sources are indeed a bummer, but as my coding skills are below zero. Sadly I am not able to help here out.
