TWRP FOR Xperia XA1 Series
Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
*
* We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
*
*/

Install guide:
1. Install fastboot tools from google's sdk on your PC
2. Enter fastboot mode
3. Unlock your bootloader
4. Run "fastboot flash recovery recoveryimgfilename.img" in command line
6. Run "fastboot reboot" in command line
7. Boot into recovery

I am working at customs ROMs for XA1 series right now, I am trying to fix RIL (That's why i didn't push it still since i would like to try somethings before pushing it hehe)
Thanks

Hi,
The XA1 arrived but it was SIM Locked (Network Locked to Vodafone) :(
I did notice something interesting though.
The sim unlock code entry box appears very very early in the boot process so I think maybe this sim check needs to be satisfied.
Hopefully the LK is not responsible for this checking.
The Phone is getting unlocked but it takes a few days seemingly so I left the phone with the shop until the code is received.

If you mean custom in term of clean stock (debloated, deodexed) rom then I have my home made Rom for you, if it mean Lineage OS or a like then we still need to wait :D

Please could I request the debloated deodexed rom? I have my Xperia Xa1 unlocked with kernel, twrp and rooted but when I have tried to debloat I somehow remove something to make it not work again so have to install the ROM again

Do you know how to remove encryption from this phone. Whenever I go into TWRP it asks for password but I've never set a password
you could as OP of this thread more about this. Afaik this phone come with encryption by default (kernel level) which can be disable though not recommended since privacy and stuff, Adding decryption onto twrp is challenging since sony add some of there own encrypt mechanic iirc and till now I still don't know how to add decryption support for this device :(

Ah its OK. I added the files onto the phone storage then went into twrp but then realised I have to wipe internal storage to modify new ROM lol. Tomorrow I'll have to access files by OTG or laptop or micro SD
