Sony Denies Working On Stock AOSP ROMs For Xperia DevicesBy cheatmaster 07:47 Wed, 21 Jul 2021 Comments
There have been rumors of Sony working on stock AOSP ROMs for its Xperia series of phones. This naturally excited a lot of people, as it meant you could have a stock Android experience on your Xperia device and since the Read-Only Memory (ROM) came from the manufacturer itself, it would mostly be stable and usable for everyday use.
Unfortunately, Sony has declined working on any such project as of now, although based on the feedback the company finds this concept "interesting", so there may be some hope in future.
It's easy to see why some people jumped to this conclusion. After all, Sony has always been open to developers working on custom ROMs for their devices, even going as far as to provide binaries and source code to assist create them create their own custom ROM. However, as the company clarified in its blog post, these binaries and source code are not enough to form a complete AOSP Read-Only Memory (ROM) and are intended as a base for developers to reduce their work.
Hopefully, though, Sony will change its mind in future and start providing either an optional or a built-in stock or near stock version of Android for its users.
