[AOSP] Xperia M Marshmallow ROM

The Sony Xperia M, which released in 2013 is now a 2-year-old device. You wouldn’t expect it to receive the latest Android Marshmallow update officially, heck, the device didn’t even receive Android 5.0 Lollipop update.

However, that doesn’t mean you won’t be sporting the freshest release of Android on your Xperia M. Developer PecanCM over at xda has just released an AOSP based Android 6.0 Marshmallow ROM for Xperia M, and by the looks of things, it seems promising.

The Xperia M Marshmallow ROM has most things working, the only major things that are broken on the ROM are NFC, GPS, MTP and Dual SIM (on Xperia M Dual). Other than that, it’s a pretty good ROM.

The ROM uses baseband from Android 4.3 update for Xperia M, so if you’re running 4.1 or 4.2, make sure you first update to Android 4.3. Also, it’s recommended that you use the TWRP FOTA recovery for installing AOSP based ROMs on Xperia devices.

You can grab the Xperia M Marshmallow ROM from the download link below, simply flash it via TWRP recovery with a Factory reset + Wipe cache & Dalvik cache.

Since this is an AOSP based ROM, you won’t get Google services pre-installed with it. You need to flash a Marshmallow compatible Gapps package separately via TWRP recovery to get Google services like Play Store back. Grab a Marshmallow Gapps package from the link below:
