Sony's bootloader unlock page added the xperia 10 II to the list.
It's wrongly listed as "Xperia X10 II", so it's near the middle of the list, but gives the code with the IMEI

Edit:
Can't post link yet, the unlock page is:
https://developer.sony.com/develop/open-devices/get-started/unlock-bootloader/​

As long as BL is unlocked, you may be able to root your device using XperiFirm, UnSIN and Magisk.

- XperiFirm > Download fw
- UnSIN > Get the boot_XXXX.sin file from the downloaded fw folder, and drop it over unsin.exe (you'll get boot_XXXX.img file).
- Move the boot_XXXX.img file to the device's internal storage (or sdcard).
- Install Magisk Manager app
- Magisk Manager app > Install > Uncheck 'Keep AVB 2.0/dm-verity' > Next > Select and patch a file > Choose the boot_XXXX.img (you'll get /Download/magisk_patched.img)
- Flash magisk_patched.img with fastboot with command:
Code:
fastboot flash boot magisk_patched.img
- Reboot

If something goes wrong, you'll need to flash original stock boot img file (boot_XXXX.img) with fastboot (or even flash whole fw again).
Try it at your own risk.

You're welcome. Xperia devices are not provided with a recovery, you need a custom one (by the way not yet available for this model).

Glad to know that.

Sure you are! You can flash EdExposed and, for e.g., install my xposed modules ( Home Xposed for Q and Call Recording ).
Also any other hack you want to (my debloat script >> here << may also work).

Just a warning: due the lack of a recovery, if you face a bootloop after mess with something, you'll need to disable all the installed magisk modules to be able to boot up device, and to do so, you'll need to create a Core Mode Only magisk (google it) and fastboot it.

First of all ensure all your installed magisk modules are disabled (disable them all and reboot).
Magisk bind-mounts /system/* (specific modules folders) to do its initial mount logic, so changes into those system folders at runtime won't be allowed (if that specific system folder is used by a magisk module).
I don't know if this is your case, but I drop here this warning.

adb commands to mount system (rootfs)
rw:
Code:
mount -orw,remount /
ro:
Code:
mount -oro,remount /

You could try also to disable the vbmeta params by fastbooting vbmeta*_.img (vbmeta_*.sin > unsin.exe > vbmeta*_.img) with command:
Code:
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta*_.img

hi everyone,

after rooting with the boot.img patch method is there a good way to de-google the stock rom? i've seen twrp scripts for this but obviously those don't apply here, and i'm not exactly sure what is safe to remove and what is not, as a few days ago when i did this (via the /d/gapps app from f-droid) the system got stuck in a bootloop.

any ideas?

Hi, is possible flash custom Rom without recovery? I saw that it is already available for download Pixel Experience for our device. Thanks for replay.

I have no idea (I've never played with custom roms - stock only).
Pay attention to the 2020/08/19 build, it has a recovery image file available (as per I could see).

The only custom ROM for our device I found Pixel Experience here ... But unfortunately I failed to flash the their recovery and twrp is not yet.

:( That doesn't sound great. I'm looking for ways to de-google it, remove tracking apps, etc. Looks like now only way is to remove apps manually via `adb`. But I'm not sure what apps to remove.

Will installing AOSP for Android 11 with Sony image be without Google apps (like Google Play and other bloat)? Did anyone try installing this? Sony has added Xperia 10 II to Open devices program recently.
