UART on Sony Xperia X F5121

Hi,

I would like to be sure to about the UART connector on a Sony Xperia X (F5121). This model is not documented on the uart page. Nevertheless, looking into the Xperia X seems to be very similar to the Z1. I identified a connector which seems to be the right one (see the photo below). Is there anybody that can confirm that this is the right connector ? (and eventually where is the GND/RX/TX) ?

best regards,

JFL

Re: UART on Sony Xperia X F5121

Hi,

we are working on an updated UART page

 

All devices that have the same UART connector use the same pinout that can be identified according to the guide we provided

I have found the updated pages about UART. Do you plan to include instructions about the pinout for the Xperia X ?

Re: UART on Sony Xperia X F5121

Thank you very much @devjerpelea, I just spent a lot of time searching the one on the Xperia T3, I am impatient to finally find out where it is (I had prepared a stackoverflow question, but decided to check this forum first).

 

Here are some other devices I will probably be interested in shortly:

  • Xperia T3 (obviously)
  • Xperia SP
  • Xperia E1
  • Xperia M2 Aqua

 

Do you have an ETA on the page?

 

Thank you so much for your great policies on opensource and open devices! It makes buying Sony a no-brainer compared to others.

unfortunately I can not provide UART data for legacy devices

We will add all devices that are supported in the Open Devices to the webpage
