Don't install this, Doesn't work and now I must flash stock ROM again with flashtool and then custom recovery again and root from there, Developer please fix!!

I've done careful testing and spent quite a while on dora to get things working. Your error report is certainly not helpful. If you update it and be more explicit about *what* is not working, I will gladly try to provide help.

Also make sure that you flashed the ODM image.

How do i make it work? I cant flash this rom.
Says its invalid and error flashing zip

Have you updated TWRP? I had a couple of versions old, and I was getting an error similar to this

---------- Post added at 12:50 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:46 AM ----------

I am a little confused. So, I need to build and flash an ODM image - an android open source project image - before I flash carbonrom? If so, why do I need carbonrom when I've already got android installed?

You only need the "Flash the Vendor Image" part (Step 7). There's no need to build anything.

https://developer.sony.com/develop/...ild-aosp-nougat-8-1-oreo-4-4/#tutorial-step-7

Edit, I noticed the link in the OP pointed to step 4 instead of step 7. I fixed that now, sorry for the confusion.

So, I tried but it failed. My OEM partition is 10MB with the oem binaries are 230MB - is this correct?

Code:
[email protected]:~/Downloads$ fastboot flash oem SW_binaries_for_Xperia_Android_8.1.6.4_r1_v11_tone.img 
target reported max download size of 268435456 bytes
sending 'oem' (226174 KB)...
OKAY [  5.889s]
writing 'oem'...
FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)
finished. total time: 5.903s

I think you need to update your bootloader. Use Sonys Emma to install the very latest Stock update. Watch out though Emma will format your internal storage.

Hello, thank you for the tips and ROM! Finally was able to flash it successfully.

Had a question though, can the debloat script from

https://forum.xda-developers.com/xp...lopment/mm-n-oem-debloat-script-v1-0-t3527866

be used with this ROM? In case the link gets deleted, the title of the script is [MM / N / O] [UB] [COMBINED] System/OEM Debloat Script - v1.8

Thank you again for the ROM!

@Myself5 i've been away from sony for a while, got this error message "your vendor image does not match the system. Please flash the OPM2.171019.029.B1 vendor image for your device", can't find anything about it related to Sony, downloaded and flashed latest vendor image from Sony:confused:

Yeah sorry. It's just a display issue that got introduced by some commits we merged recently. We're working on a fix.

Hello. I found a bunch of used Xperia X Performance selling for 130usd in the market. Since i have no experience at all with *modern sony phones, i'm wondering if it's a good deal. Asking here specifically for the camera, does this rom/phone supports camera2 api? and is anyone using Google Camera? Sorry if it's the wrong place to ask, it's just i think this is the only recently updated thread here.

    dora is going on a halt, possibly forever.

    Some of you might've seen it already. There is no new weekly for kagura this week. The reason is because I decided to drop support for it. Due to constantly reoccurring issues with devicetrees from Sony (the sonyxperiadev github) and the stubbornness of other developers involved as well as their unwillingness to accept/see obvious issues paired with the lack of time I am suffering from which makes it impossible for me to fix things at the moment I decided to make a cut and stop it here.
    I couldn't longer justify the terrible performance and issues the official builds had, especially given that there is no light visible at the end of the tunnel.

    I am sorry for the few people that liked the ROM and were willing to live with the ROM.

    Also I've been told that "All the performance issues will be fixed on the 4.9 Kernel". Honestly that's been an ongoing theme and I don't think it will be anywhere near stock performance. If however hell freezes over and 4.9 will magically fix all issues, I'll make the devices rejoin the official roaster. Realistically that won't happen before P though.

    I might attempt a stock bringup based on the perfectly working yoshino one at some point, however I have no clue if that would work, nor how long that might take.

    If you're looking for an alternative for now, I'd recommend OmniROM. Great devs and I enjoy working with them on various things.

    I will keep you updated on the potential stock bringup, just don't expect anything to happen anytime soon and PLEASE don't be mad if nothing happens at all, it's really just an experiment for now.
