Be more clear please. Did you follow the instructions? Are you on stock ROM without any kind of modifications. Otherwise it doesn't work.

Yes , after hard reset.
Phone boot without rooting.
After flashing 1 boot.img i got boot loop.
I follow system mount and same problem can't glash 2-patching also.

Here is a new build. for G8142 Dual SIM. Follow the steps from 1st post.
https://mega.nz/#!wpRyzSQB!HsqTpJIEozjd85DLXHHWO3LjTo0d4dkYdRA8RimRn4M

Please let me know, if there is something. It should work for XZ premium too (works fine with XZ1 and XZ1 compact. NO issue there)

    Good News for all Xperia Users getting/having official Android 9 from SONY. THE CAMERA WORKS WITH UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER! No need to fix DRMs anymore on Android 9 Xperia Devices! Looks like SONY doesn't Support Things like XperiFix (Making Money with a DRM Workaround). Hopefully do we now get many more Users and Developers on Xperia Devices again! HAIL SONY lol

    Anyways. Many Thanks to @janjan for giving us a great and free fix for on the Go! The last Months would be Hard without You! We still appreciate Your nice Kernels and i would be glad to help You out with AROMA installers for Multi Device Support (Single/Dual Sim)
