in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 series


Xperia_Z3_LollipopSony recently showed off Android 5.0 Lollipop AOSP (Android Open Source Project) on a number of Xperia Z flagship devices including the Xperia Z3. Today, Sony has made the Android 5.0 Lollipop AOSP source code, pre-built software binaries and build instructions available for a number of handsets which includes the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1 Compact.

This gives developers a chance to develop custom ROMs based on Android Lollipop AOSP for these devices. Don’t expect this software to replace your daily driver, for example the camera and modem is not working. If you want to find out more, including instructions and download links, head over to Sony Developer World.

    The camera is not working.. so its normal and perfect for daily use. Nothing different from kit kat! xD

  • Michael

    What does this mean for Z1s piece of crap you sold me Sony the GM of phones,incapable engineers and ignoring the faults.

  • dan

    you bought it, nobody forced you to take it

  • Michael

    Fuck you dan!

  • WilliamTell13

    Sony included the Z1S in the list of devices getting Lollipop.

  • zerocools

    There is always a person who complains about a fault a device has, but never states what the faults are.

  • Michael

    mine is supposed to be up to date.

  • priest

    Sony Xperia maximum of shit`s smartphone forever

  • Michael

    how was I to know that Sony is incapable of engineering a good product until a couple of months later.Than Sony acted like GM ignoring a problem.

  • Michael

    have told the incapable at Sony many times what the trouble is,they will not recognize that they produce products engineered by cretins.

    Why are you bitching about it here, no one from Sony will see it here. Contact customer support if you want answers. Also my Z1 works fine

  • Raj Singh

    Buy something else and then you won’t have to talk so much shtt. Plus, you’ll be happier with your new device since you find this one so vexatious.

  • Michael

    that is stupid already gave money for the crap Sony produces with their totally incompetent engineering and management staff. Will by another as soon as Sony refunds.Why spend more money because Sony has a staff of incompetents.

  • Michael

    I’ve been through that route. Sony makes GM look like a pillar of corporate responsibility.

  • Raj Singh

    Because you willingly chose and bought that device.
    Why did you buy it in the first place?

  • Iucidium

    /system/vendor for proprietary stuff…PLEASE!

  • Michael

    how stupid a comment,obviously I did not realize what a wretched company Sony is and what incompetents their engineers are. Buyers typically don’t think that a recognized name is a by word for shoddiness

  • Raj Singh

    Well, now you’ve formed your opinion so you won’t need to buy from said manufacturer again…
    Sucks to pay hundreds of dollars for a device you’re not happy with.
    Learn your lesson…
    Having said that, I’m very happy with my Xperia Z Ultra, one of my favorite gadgets.

  • Sony Insider

    You would be surprised what we at Sony actually read… that said, Michael, if you could voice your specific concern, maybe something could be done about it, instead of disparaging the thousands of people who designed and developed your Z1s.

  • Michael

    I have done that. Most recently at support forum.Alias neveragain The thousands of people did a bad job which usually is the result of incompetence.

  • Michael

    Learn my lesson? That would be to stay away from Sony,thanks but I already figured that out.

  • Dan Vafidis

    you’re just an olf fucking faggot, we don’t need to read your problems here, go get a doctor for this.
    Als I have sony since years, never had to blame them, never disappointed

  • ash

    If you head over to any manufacturer’s forum you will find number of people complaining. There are small number of people who have issues with there device.

    I have Z1 compact and I have no issues, what so ever with my device. And my next device would definitely be Sony for sure.

  • ash

    Yes, I too had no issues with my Sony. Has xperia ray and now z1 compact. No issues, lucky me

  • Michael

    so what you like your phone mine is crap. Ignorant engineering from incompetent boobs employed by a company that is decidedly down the list of being an ethical responsible company

    .

  • Michael

    used to have sony back when they were respectable,that’s how I got sucked into this p.o.s.

    Your name calling is suggestive of your weak mind. That would explain your liking Sony Xperia.

  • Michael

    yes lucky you mine is a p.o.s.from a wretched company called Sony

  • Michael Bay

    Grow up and grow some hair, it will cool you down.

  • Michael

    your insults mean nothing curious why would you care? Have you an interest in Sony or are you just some sort fan of crappy phones like Xperia. Either way if you want me to go away quit sending me messages-dolt.

  • Hope It Happens.

    Xperia crap, Samsung crap, LG crap, Xiaomi crap, Lenovo crap, OnePlus crap, Motorola crap, Nokia crap, well everything is crap, either way I’m happy with my Z, though it’s having few issues

  • Hope It Happens

    You wouldn’t know till you have met the engineers directly

  • Hope It Happens.

    Great!!… Mind lending some money to Michael?
    so he could buy another phone or at least tell him how to make those money

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    You still haven’t shared the problem you’re facing and which device.

    But how to get e.g. the camara working? What have ROM-developers to do? Build own drivers? O_o

  • Jim

    Well, guess what.. You are a minority in the matter. The vast majority are very happy with their Z1 devices.

  • Hope It Happens.

    It’s mostly your fault for not gathering information before making decision, also every decision has its own risk, you’re just not accepting the risk, be glad that yours not as expensive as i-phone series

  • Ediz I

    Just shut the fuck up Pls, don’t you see? Instead of spamming this forum why not go to Sony official website forum and complain there

    See Z1 on the web. Be amazed by it . Buy it. Subscribe to xperiablog for desperate update infos. See a psychiatrist frequently. Join a anger management group. Shave your head, you will be losing your hair anyway. Buy a notebook and always keep with you as your cursing skills will be improving drasticly and you might wanna write some of it down as it is good stuff and you might have other things anoying you as much as your phone (though i find it very likely).

    SONY. Puts the joke on you.

  • Rob

    Because he doesn’t have one, he’s a troll!

  • Michael

    quit giving me opportunities to respond to you Sony butt boy

  • Michael

    Sony did not put joke on me Sony just proved what a crap company they are and how incompetent their staff is.

  • Michael

    I’m not happy with mine.

  • Michael

    I can see their handiwork and it is not good.

  • Michael

    Buying a product from a company that purports to be reputable should not be a risk

  • Jim

    You both need to be institutionalized.

  • Michael

    Headphone icon comes on of it’s own accord when this happens the phone will not ring. Constantly having to power on and off not to mention the missed phone calls. When I put headphone in it is not recognized. Missing calls is most disturbing.

  • Michael

    with the number of responses,the tone of the responses makes me think that a lot of these posts are from the incompetent engineers of sony

  • Jim

    The tone of the responses match your own.. And you have yet to mention what problems you’ve actually had, making your statements seem like whining with no substance.

  • Michael

    I am the one stuck with the handiwork of incompetent Sony engineers. That said the problem as listed here and at other places that have sony name attached. Problem headset icon comes on sometimes on it’s own sometimes when a notice comes in like when sony sends updates for the ridiculous xperia lounge. When the icon comes on the phone does not ring making the investment in the phone worthless. When headset(from sony) is plugged in like to listen to FM which requires the headset as antenna there is no recognition of headset,using diagnosis only says indeed it is not working.
    Do you think this represents capable engineering?
    Reminder every time someone posts to me I appreciate it because it gives an opportunity to respond.

  • Raj Singh

    Send it in for repair. If the warranty doesn’t cover it, pay for it to get fixed or buy a new phone.
    Stop trolling.

  • fuck

    obviously your headset port is broken, go get it repaired and stop spamming the thread you old fuck…

  • Fiiliip Fillip

    Where can i buy screen protector with sony logo for sony xperia z??

  • Michael

    every time you send to me I respond fuck you fuck sony and their shit products.

  • Michael

    everytime you post to me I respond got it. You seem so ignorant that you must be a sony engineer yes I am upset perhaps not to the extent that your picture would suggest but yes I take a dim view of paying money thinking I will get a good product and end up with shit from sony who won’t address the problem

  • Raj Singh

    This is what I get for feeding a troll…

  • Michael

    not a troll just someone very dissatisfied with sony and the badly designed xperia,but thanks for the opportunity to once again express my feelings towards sony

  • John

    Sony, like apple, has been cashing in on their brand. Both sony and apple used to make excellent products. They still both make some good products, but too many of their products are inferior but they still set the price really high – because too many people are willing to pay for the brand.

  • nopunintended

    ^Dude.
    He meant something else with the camera “not working”.

  • Hope It Happens.

    If so…, why not sell yours, and order the japan version, tends to be better

  • Hope It Happens.

    Still your fault for not gathering information, well a company cannot guarantee something being 100%, so what are your problems with your Z1s? not stating the problem means insulting

  • Michael

    Moron, what you are saying is that the brand name Sony should never be purchased,or trusted. Well I did learn that but that is not the way commerce works. Companies should have competent people that can produce a product of quality obviously the engineers and all others at Sony are incompetent and should not have their jobs if they cannot produce a product to live up to company claims. You are just too ignorant to bother with.

  • Michael

    That’s absolutely ridiculous. To do that would make me as much of a shit person as the people of sony are,all I would be doing is passing on a product designed and made by incompetents

  • Xperia Z1s

    Omfg Michael YOU’RE SO DAMN ANNOYING!!!!!!! JFC

  • Xperia Z1s

    STFU PLEASE MICHAEL YOURE SO DAMN ANNOYING JFC

  • Hope It Happens.

    well.. I am a moron, I acknowledge it, I also tend to be ignorant with almost everything, what is quality, what is being competent, until you can specify those I can’t accept your arguments, also what company you adore with?

  • Hope It Happens.

    well.. I’m planning to buy Z2 japan next year, why would that be ridiculous if you can something better, what is good design according to your taste, why would people of sony be shit when they are trying to satisfy us xperia users?

  • Michael

    Ridiculous because I would be selling something that is problematic to someone else. Just foisting a bad product onto someone else,like sony sold me a bad product. I have more integrity than that and apparently more integrity than you.

  • Michael

    I will continue responding every time you sony sympathizers gives me an opportunity to state what ignorant incompetent people are at sony making it a totally shit company.

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    Uninstall smart connect or disable it in the apps. Problem solved.

    Are you using a Z series device by any chance?

  • Michael

    Zx1s now that you ask. followed instructions will now disappear thank you for a solution and all others thank you for the spirited banter.

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    Glad it got sorted. ;)

  • me

    I’m running AOSP 5.0 on my Z, everything working but it is ugly and bright as hell, google is joking on us releasing such unfinished UI. Hope sony will release something better for our eyes like they did before.
