LollipopExperimental Android 5.0 Lollipop AOSP builds are currently available for the Xperia L and Xperia Z. The whizz kids over at XDA have Lollipop custom ROMs for both devices. The Xperia Z has most features working for it, whereas the Xperia L port does not have working Wifi, Bluetooth, RIL and GPS right now. Both are early builds, so expect don’t expect everything to run smoothly. If you want to give them a try hit the source links below.

    I won’t for
    my Xperia ARC S
    and for my father Xperia S

  • Chris

    I really hate that lollipop look…. Look at that wifi and gsm/data logo… f-ing ugly…

  • In a similar fashion, the Xperia Z1 has a Lollipop ROM as well:

    The catch is that it’s by far not functional for daily use. I’m sure there are more high-end Sony devices with these kinds of ROMs, and not just the two in the article.

    @Sony Xperia

    Please bring Android 5.0 for T2 Ultra

  • Sony will customize the looks to match their own UI, for sure. Don’t worry (:

  • Edrei Ramírez

    Hopefully Sony will add in 4k video and other latest camera app for xperia z1 after upgrade to android 5.0

  • MChega

    Because AOSP is faster to make, while Xperia UI is harder, better and stronger.

  • Huntesh Kumar

    will sony bring new UI for z?

  • Eduardo Otero

    Jaja for Xperia Z is on Spanish xD

  • TrustfulPanda

    Trust me, they have it in the works. It’s just not leaked yet.
    Of course if you whana go Mission Impossible into Sony’s Software Development and Design department, be my guest ;P

  • AsadMulla

    yeh they always do.I am with chris on the icons. I hate android stock icons.

  • roeshak

    I really can’t think about android L right now. Don’t expect it for 4 to 5 months on z2 and that’s just too far away to consider right now.
    Who knows maybe the fact that other manufacturers are striving hard to get it out ASAP might push Sony intro rolling it out before March next year.
    History tells us they’ll wait to launch z4 first before updating older devices but that’ll put them at least 3 months behind other vendors.
    I think they’ll have to bite the bullet and release it much earlier. Don’t think Sony can afford to be months behind the competition, it’ll do much damage to their already ailing reputation.

  • Ulla

    Whats the point in this kind of stuff? Features that dont work and lots of bugs expected. Why do this why Sony will release a real version later on? I dont understand why people put work in this thing.

  • jak

    need some love for SP too…

  • Ritwij

    Why the hell would they create the old UI based on lollipop?

  • Ritwij

    Motorola? Lol. They have the stock UI.

  • Matt

    There is already an experimental build for the Z2 over at XDA

  • luqman_98

    They need to adapt the AOSP first and make it stable (or nearly stable) before they implement their custom UI.

  • RealityCheck2014

    If ‘Lollipop’ looks like the New version of Gmail i got on my phone last week then i really am not looking forward to it really :-/ Looks like a little Kid designed it :-/ Oh well.

  • Guest

    They look so ugly, but the three icons at the bottom, like the back, home, etc button look like the Playstation symbols, which would look so cool.

    it is good for owners of Sony xperia to know that Sony not surrendering its old model and continue to update them, samsung update the latest galaxy s5 and samsung galaxy note 4 but nor galaxy s3 nor note 2
