Background:
Made by Zenith, Sony Apps Enabler is a ported version of Sony devices' framework files for any Android device. This tricks Play Store into recognizing your Android as a Sony device and therefore, allowing you to install and update Sony devices specific apps directly from Play Store.
For more info, please check the original thread here.

By using this module, you're able to use the following Sony apps:
  • Music
  • Album
  • Xperia Keyboard
  • Calendar
  • Weather
  • Sketch
  • Other apps by Sony Mobile Communications

Downloads:

You can download it from Magisk Manager or find versions for Magisk v12 and v13 here.
Note: The original version for Magisk v12 has a higher versionCode than the one on Magisk Manager for Magisk v13, so you'll need to reinstall it to make Magisk Manager keep track of it. I did this mostly for easier updating on the repo and to avoid breaking Magisk v12 installs as the v4 template is incompatible with pre-v13 Magisk.

Installation:
  • Download and flash the Sony Apps Enabler file through TWRP or Magisk Manager.
  • Reboot.
  • Clear Play Store's data.
  • Open Play Store and install your preferred Sony apps.
Bugs:
None so far.

Credits:
Sony for providing the apps.
A.R.I.S.E. Sound Systems and XOSP Community for essential files.

I believe that Bravia Engine is a camera related feature, I messed around with the Sony Album app and didn't find any Bravia Engine related setting in either videos or photos.

For Magisk v13.x, I need to update the template to v4. I'm going to do this between today and tomorrow and maybe push it on the Magisk Modules repo.

For features and enhancements, check the original thread, I'm only repacking it for Magisk.

@matpower64 I tried flashing your module, both, for magisk 13.3 and both gave the same error, something like not a valid zip file. I figured out what was the issue and repacked your zip file. Then it flashed just fine but it gave me bootloop. I confirmed it after clean flashing everything from scratch. Without this module, my phone booted just fine but after flashing it, again bootloop.

Rom - PA 7.1.3 unofficial
Device - Falcon
Gapps - Pico
Magisk - 13.3

Hmm, could you get the magisk.log in /cache after a bootloop? The .zips were working last time I tested them, just wondering, do you get the same problem if you download it directly from Magisk Manager?

Sorry for the wait, but you should be able to uninstall the apps as if they were normal applications after removing Magisk. (Unless I misunderstood you, then I am sorry)

Sorry, i couldn't get back to you as i did clean flash and manually moved the sony apps in system which i use. As you suggested, this time i downloaded the module from magisk manager and it works just fine. Thanks for this awesome module.
