Default Anyone working on GPE

Just wondering if anyone is working on the GPE of the Sony z ultra if so what's being done for it. A fully stable recovery, ta partition back up, etc.

There's already a fully working GPe ROM for the Ultra.

Excluding the TA backup, is there anything stopping you from just using the GPe ROM's recovery stuff?

I think trying for the TA is a lost cause; There's some decent debate as to whether or not it even does anything on the GPe.

I don't think it's possible to use the recovery we're using since we aren't using the same bootloader, so he might end up hardbricking it if he flashes it. Don't quote me on this though, since I'm not 100% sure.

Philz recovery might work though, but again.. I don't know. OP, Do NOT flash anything until you're 101% sure.

Well from what I read its not stable and its testing I don't like jumping into any flashing unless its a sure thing but that's really the only thing that's really stopping me from using it
