What Sony has done is to publish both the binaries and the device trees and the kernel for users of the Xperia Open Devices program. All these files are accompanied by the compilation instructions, a step-by-step guide for more experienced developers and users They can create their AOSP version of Android 12 compatible with their devices.

The build instructions for this Android 12 AOSP for Xperia phones indicate that the ideal would be to have a Linux PC (Sony recommends Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, in fact) although the compilation process can also be carried out on Winows 10. Sony indicates that the compilation environment must be configured, a suitable version of the Java SDK must be installed and the repo tool to be able to work with multiple repositories.

Once we have all this in order, Sony indicates that you can download all the Android 12 source code and follow the step-by-step instructions to do away with an Android 12 AOSP ROM installable on Xperia phones of the Open Devices program. You have to unlock the phone’s bootloader before updating, by the way, so it is recommended that this process be carried out only by users who know how to handle themselves in these environments so as not to end up with the phone turned into a paperweight.
