Sony plays around with Lollipop AOSP on Xperia Z3

Everybody’s riding the Android 5.0 wave, and today, it’s Sony’s turn to show what they’ve been doing with Android Lollipop. Sony has traditionally been more friendly with ROMs and versions of Android based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project), especially with their unlocked Xperia devices. So here’s Sony sharing what they’re doing with Google’s recently released source code for Android 5.0.

Ready, get set, go! Android Lollipop added to AOSP

The Nexus 9 has launched and so has the Nexus Player. While the Nexus 6 is still on its way, currently still marked as out of stock, there is no stopping the inertia of Android 5.0's debut in the market. And as if on cue, Android Lollipop has also landed in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) code repository, marking the start of the availability of the source code for the latest Android version and giving developers and OEMs the go signal to start porting their ROMs and versions to Lollipop.

OnePlus One gets its own Stock Android ROM

OnePlus promised to be different and, to some extent, they are. That desire to be unique and to never settle shows up once again today as OnePlus revealed a gift for lovers of a 100 percent, pure, vanilla Android experience: A stock Android ROM just for the OnePlus One, complete with a gapps download, and instructions for flashing, all without voiding your warranty.

Android source code says goodbye to Dalvik

Google has finally done it! It has completely flipped the switch and has removed Dalvik from Android's master source code. This will pave the way for only one Android runtime, and that will be ART, which is expected to be pushed in the next major Android version, whenever that is.
