What is it?
An unofficial CyanogenMod 11 build for the Xperia Z3.
Status
  • Device Config: GOOD - Device config is pretty good at this point
  • Vendor Libs: OK - Needs some minor tweaking once we have a decent kernel to work with.
  • Kernel: NOT OK - Needs merging with Sony's kernel sources.

What works in current build
Not much to be honest. It boots. Bluetooth works I think.
Known Issues
  • Camera
  • Audio
  • RILD
  • Probably a lot more...

Installation
  1. Download the .zip file
  2. Unzip the .zip file and flash the boot.img with Fastboot
  3. Backup your current ROM
  4. Install the .zip from recovery

Hopefully Ill be able to iron out issues quite swiftly, but I felt like releasing this for the curious forward leaning users out there

Changelog
  • 20141001 v2 - Fixed touch screen
  • 20141001 - Initial Release

Coming soon...
  • RILD (Fixed, just need a new build)
  • Mobile data (Hopefully)
  • Audio
  • New kernel might bring functioning WiFi, deep sleep and more.

Thanks all. Sony hinted to the fact that I should probably wait for the new common kernel for MSM8974 to be released before putting too much effort into porting CM to the Z3, but we will see how it goes.

That's already done. However after Sony has explicitly stated that they will be adding device configurations as well as a new kernel platform it's probably a good idea to wait for that.

Thanks. Im certainly looking forward to it as well. The stock Sony firmware is such a mess of adware and bloat.
