Where most Android OEM’s tend to shy away from Android developers looking to tinker around with their code, Sony has long been known to welcome devs with open arms, allowing those — with the proper know how — to tinker around with their devices at their leisure.
Keeping with their current track record, Sony has given developers the green light to access their open source archives for the Sony Xperia S with complete instructions on building custom ROMs and kernels for use on that device.
I’m curious to know if any of you guys find Sony’s stance on Android development refreshing? Could it influence a future smartphone purchase form any of you? I know, we don’t typically hear from OEM’s going this far to support the Android modding community but Sony seems to be going that extra mile.
