We are happy to announce that two new devices, Xperia 1 IV and 5 IV, have now been added to Sony’s Open Devices program. This means that developers are now able to build and flash their own versions of Android on these devices.
The Open Devices program is our way to provide access and tools to build and test your custom software on a range of Sony devices. You can access all the resources you need through our Open Devices page, which can be found on Developer World. We value our Open Source community and welcome you to participate in our projects via GitHub. Feel free to provide feedback on further resources you may need and comment about how we can improve our program.
To get started on how to build AOSP for your device, use our build guides for instructions. Please note that this software is meant for developers and can be unstable due to its early stage.
Note: Both devices are in their early stage of development and there are still multiple functions that need to be implemented.
