    HELP ME!

    HI :3
    a request, could use the same kernel of the Latin American version of the model 6603? since I use that version, and this device and has the fingerprint sensor, please, I currently use the kernel of the US version and I do not have the fingerprint sensor enabled, or is there any way to reactivate this sensor with the American kernel?

    First of all I would like to thank you for creating such an amazing and detailed guide. It worked perfectly for me.

    I have a question though....

    I have been facing the issue like thousands of other with my fingerprint scanner. Even after flashing this ROM, Patched Kernal and Rooting my device, I could not find finger print scanner.

    It used to work perfectly before I updated to Android 7.1.1.

    My Question is...

    Is it possible to have only a flash able zip file dedicated to fingerprint only where I don't have to install the whole ROM again because I'm very happy with the .ftf file you provided.

    Is there any possibility that I could flash only a small fraction of software that include FingerPrint functionality for my Xperia Z5?

    Thank You

    For your Time.

    I dont know the reason to lose fingerprint, so If you want to try, flash your stock version via XperiFirm then send to me kernel.sin file, then I will patch your kernel for you..
