Hey Guys,

Welcome to my next project . At last, finally able to boot Android Lollipop in our little device. For now nothing works, but I'm sure we can make it stable at some point. Any help would be appreciated.

Note: Please don't say "This doesn't work or is it stable for daily use". It's just a preview release so that you can try out lollipop.

INSTALLATION
- Extract boot.img from the zip and flash it via fastboot
- Copy the zip to your SDCard
- Boot into recovery
- Wipe System, Data, Cache, Dalvik Cache
- Go to Mount and uncheck system
- Flash the zip
- Reboot your device

First boot takes some minutes. Wait patiently.


BUGS
- No Wifi (working)
- No Bluetooth (working)
- No RIL (still buggy)
- Audio doesn't work (working)
- SdCard not being recognised (Fixed)
- Camera doesn't work
- OMX not working
- No HW acceleration (working)
- Video playback (working)
- Many things, don't ask

Cool

What about RAM usage / free RAM after boot compared to KitKat?
Cant test myself since the XperiaU is my only phone.

It's too early to talk about this...Let the dev build a working ROM first and then we can care about RAM usage
