Sony adds Android 6.0 AOSP binaries, including files for Xperia Z5

Oct 15, 2015 | News, Updates/Software

Sony recently released the AOSP Android Marshmallow binaries for the open devices and Xperia Z5 is included. Unlike other OEMs, Sony recently decided to empower its devices with unlockable bootloaders and if you do own one of these smartphones or tablets, you will find it easier to flash AOSP ROMs on your device. The Marshmallow-based AOSP binaries for almost all Sony devices are out now and you will be able to find them via the source link below.

 

Sony Marshmallow binaries

 

The most important of all devices is Sony Xperia Z5, one of the better smartphones out there. It is distinct from the previous Sony smartphones like Xperia Z3+/ Z4, mainly because it is free from the previous devices’ overheating issues. Its design is much improved as well, making it one of the slimmest and most beautiful smartphones of 2015. This smartphone is now open to tweaking, modding and after-marketing too. If you own one of the Xperia devices that can be unlocked, then you too can start flashing Android 6.0 AOSP on your smartphone.

Even if the older devices will not be as fast and smooth-running, they will still run the software, which is more than what we can say about other OEMs (LG, HTC, Samsung for example).
