One of these is Sony who, with their program Open Devices, going to open up the devices included in it to the developers, they will be able to create ROMs thanks to that will be able to have access to the files of the supported models. Had still to include some of the latest mobile, but the japanese manufacturer has put on the batteries by adding to the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact.

The inclusion of the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact in the Open Devices opens doors to the development of ROMs based on Android Oreo.

Today the blog of developers of Sony Mobile has announced that Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact, presented at the IFA in Berlin, have been added to the program Open Devices, so that developers will be able, hereafter, to create their own ROMs based on Android Oreo and flaseharlas in these two models.

of course, this opens the door to the ‘ports’ to other models of Sony smartphones (Xperia XZ Premium, because of its similarity in specifications, it would be the simplest in theory). Even, if some developer is brave enough and skilled, might behave to some mobile phones from other brands.
