Sony adds Xperia 10 II to the Open Devices program

Peter, 16 June 2020

The Sony Xperia 10 II has been added to the company’s Open Device program, which is a great resource for ROM developers looking to build AOSP software for the phone or to port custom ROMs.

There’s one hurdle to clear first – Sony is yet to enable bootloaded unlocking for the Xperia 10 II. That can’t be far off, however, as without unlocking the bootloader, there's no way to flash a custom ROM.

Anyway, Sony also updated the Android 10 binaries for the old Xperia 10 and 10 Plus models, the Xperia 1 and 5 flagships (again, the 2019 versions) as well as several older devices.

2020-06-15: Updated AOSP Android 10.0 binaries (Kernel 4.14) for:

  • Xperia 10II (Seine)
  • Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact (Yoshino)
  • Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra (Nile)
  • Xperia XZ2, Xperia XZ2 Compact and Xperia XZ3 (Tama)
  • Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus (Ganges)
  • Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 (Kumano)

For all devices: Various cleanup and improvements to reduce the used space.

It means Sony recognize its poor track record in giving updates, so by open-sourcing the phone, it hopes independent developers will pick up the task

Lol please, no it isn't. It's as relevant as water, you definitely need that.

Security updates are overrated.
