Before proceeding to build Android M preview for your device, it’s important to note that the AOSP software is not certified or intended for regular use and it’s only available for devices with an unlocked boot loader and comes with some limitations, for example, the modem and the camera are not implemented.
If your Xperia device is listed above as part of the Open Device program, you can use the easy-to-follow guide to get instructions on building AOSP M Developer Preview and download the necessary software binaries. You can then create your test image, and taste the Android M preview for your Xperia device.
