Thanks! Now that you mention this, I see mounted partitions on my XPeria M2 (like /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modem mounted on /firmware), and there are many more. Also, the Sony binaries include etc/firmware files.
I was confused because this "requirement" of 4.4.2 was not mentioned on "developer.sonymobile.com/knowledge-base/open-source/open-devices/aosp-build-instructions/how-to-buil..."
Is there somewhere more info on this subject? Can you use fastboot to write a file to another partition? (e.g. on my XPeria M2 the modem partition is /dev/block/mmcblk0p19). With this, I could try to flash other partitions without always using flashtool.

Forget my previous question.
I don't want to waste your time by keeping asking questions all the time :-)
I understand the work you do on AOSP. Because of this, I've bought myself a Sony.
I hope to be able to contribute as well, but I've got some learning to do....

this kind of practice is not recomanded
is always better to flash the whole ony firmware to update all partitions

It seems battery drain is high on 5.0.2 (even with all consumers disabled).
I would like to help more on these issues (loke camera and battery), but I'm too inexperienced in the kernel-Sony interaction.
(or for that matter, Android itself :-)
It seems for other XPeria devices, the camera works (www.blinkenlights.ch/ccms/android/yuga-l.html). Has this user figured it out himself or is the Sony github branch just more updated for these devices?
Keep up the good work! If you are the person responsable for making AOSP possible on Sony, you already have a place to stay if you ever want to visit Belgium :-)
