In last couple of days, we’ve seen so many ports were designed to work with flagship-level devices. Now, another non-flagship (yet highly regarded) device has been added to the Lollipop family: The Sony Xperia L (Taoshan).

AOSP Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM for Xperia L (Taoshan)

The AOSP was ported by a well Recognized Developer and Contributor at XDA varun.chitre15. The release is pretty stable for an initial build, but because of some serious issues, it can’t yet be considered a daily driver ROM. Issues are with RIL and general connectivity, which are obviously quite vital in a smartphone. Instead of general connectivity issues, rest works pretty well already, so it’s kind of impressive to see such fast progress in an alpha release.

To flash AOSP onto your Xperia L, your device must be unlocked. The archive isn’t flashable, so you must also make sure that you have Fastboot properly configured. You can find instructions regarding unlocking on the official Sony pages.
