Sony has just uploaded Android 6.0 Marshmallow AOSP resources and binaries to its Open Device program, allowing developers to build their own custom ROMs based on the latest version of Android for a range of Sony phones.

Sony has made its latest round of resources available to all of its Qualcomm devices that were built from 2014 onwards. So, this includes the Xperia Z3, Z3+, Z2, Z4 Tablet, and a selection of mid-range phones like the Xperia T3. The company may have only just released its Xperia Z5 into the hands of customers but binaries are available for Sony’s latest flagship too.

The Sony Open Device program also includes device configuration and build guides for eager developers, along with the software binaries. The AOSP resources can be patched up and maintained by the community through GitHub. You can check out all of the available resources here.

Although a number of Sony devices have early Android 6.0 resources ready for download, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Sony will be officially updating all of these handsets to Marshmallow. The company has not announced any update plans yet. However, it shouldn’t be too long before the custom ROM community can put something together.
