BETA2 coming. Fixed all Bugs on Stock. Optimized a lot under the hood. Added Audio functions such as Monitor Rotation (Channels change on base of the actual rotation state), Google Pixel UI with Black Dark Mode, Audio Recorder, Pixel Launcher, Theme Manager and so on. Hope You will enjoy it! A Video Preview is also incoming!

(PS: Please avoid using the Gesture Navigation since it's broken with the Pixel Launcher. QuickSwitch for Magisk may fix that, or you can try to install a third Launcher from the Play Store. Sorry for that!)

Hi,

For the gesture navigation, you will be able to fix it with a framework-res overlay ?

Decompile stock framework-res, look inside strings.xml for everything with com.sonymobile.launcher and replace it with com.google.android.app.nexuslauncher with an overlay.

If you've got an abstract method issue, let me know with a logcat, I know how to fix it.

It should work, I've added nexus launcher inside eXistenZ.

I mean no disrespect to anyone especially non for the developer. The only thing that is stopping me to try this is gcam support. If we could get proper gcam support I will flash it right away.

Xperia 5 SOV41

I am using Xperia 5 from au one, with the code SOV41. Can I use this ROM without brick it? From my own experience, I used to brick an au Z5 once. I learned that Japanese carrier model of Xperias are easier to be bricked without save. Can I flash and use this ROM without be bricked or I have to get an International one, which cost me some more money?

Stock will never get real GCAM Support. I tried my best which is beyond just porting apks, but SONY screwed up the Sensor support Levels. Some of our Sensors are not even having full Camera API 2 support or even have LEVEL_3 access. Inpossible to make GCAMs work like that. We need to use AOSP with the SODP Trees to get that. 0% Chance on Stock!
Hi
Is TWRP still in Chinese?
Yes. Think we will not get a new one that soon :/

In theory it should work. You just need to patch Your SD Card with the Second SIM on it.

Yes, You will be able to restore Your device by just locking the Bootloader and using Xperia Companion for repair. Besides that is my work Systemless, means Your Device will remain untouched after de-installing the MARS_SOM :) Happy flashing!

BTW: Update is out on GitHub and Google Drive / My Website! Enjoy <3

Today i jumped the hoop and unlocked the bootloader of my Xperia 5 and ended up installing the MarsSom. But for some unclear reason the notification sound wont chime at all. The reat of all aound settings work. I can choose another notification sound but cant hear it . All volumes are up.
Any ideas?

    It's really crazy to see almost no Development at all anymore... After doing that so many Years and after trying to create something new with My Patches, since back in the Nexus 6 Days am i hoping this one here will lasts for a long Time! We will see how the future of Android will look like...

    One Thing You could Me support with: Google Camera! Thats what a Pixel like Projects needs to be complete...
