For me doesnt works SIM card, revert back to Xperia X.

After revert back to Xperia X I have just 17Gb free space on Internal storage, but I dont have any data there.
Well, that is charm of Alphas... In My case, no problem at all. Sim work. After revert to original Sony's firmware with twrp backup, everything same.... Space as before flash.
Quick question, how did You revert it back? Twrp backup and restore or what?

Yes TWRP Backup/Restore. I have on Internal storage photos, music etc, maybe about 5Gb. Myabe they are still there, I see all folders which I have there before installing Android 7, but all are empty.

I installed it and it ran perfect but when I tried to go back to stock rom with AndroPlus kernel my phone won't boot any kernel except when I flash the stock one using flash tool. it will only vibrate once when the power button is pressed then nothing (No led or Sony logo). and now when I try to flash this rom again, booting recovery via flash tool gives error "dtb not found".

Basically I can't run any custom kernel or modified system, I can only run a flashed ftf.

Any help?

    So you've solved the problem?

    I'd also like to know what the ROM like so far? I'm using LLJY's Xperia X ROM and I'm sick of it crashing once a day. I'm interested in the stability of the rom.

    It's sunkernel fault which isn't stable yet .. not @_LLJY the guy he has already done a great work to create that ROM and optimize it :cowboy:

    awesome and too early!! may i ask what does the -S256 thing do?

    -S option automatically sparse files greater than size. Sure, it is not necessary to use it for boot or userdata images but for system image as it is large (anyway, Sony recommend to use -S)

    Nice, how it works? Fine? Its stable?
    Looks awesome i will try in a couple of days.
    Thanks!
    It is stable but it is not for everyday use because at the moment You don't have camera. In other hand, it is stable.
