Nice work. I'm glad to already see some custom ROMs (well, in that case, SOM).
However, this is the first time I encounter a SOM, is it just a Magisk module that can be turned on and off at will, switching between stock and Mars? Or shouldn't I do that?

Hrm guessing this isnt rdy yet? Just tried installing the base and rom in Magisk 23 as modules but it causes a bootloop. Noticed on GitHub says android 12 is required?
Sorry for the Issues! Could You try again now? I have removed the Vendor stuff for now...
Can You also try to use them seperated? I do actually not own the 1 III so i can't test Myself. Feel also free to collab. with Me on GitHub :)

I also got a bootloop after installing the zips. I tried following the instructions on your github and was able to do the device simulation with the props config module, but can't follow the next step "Download and extract the NgaResources.apk to /MARS_SOM_SYSTEM/system/product/app/NgaResources" as there's no NgaResources.apk file anywhere on the github that I can find. Could it be this missing file that's causing issues?

Xperia 1 III here.
I followed the steps on github and everything went smoothly even after I flashed the MARS_SOM_BASE zip. However, after flashing the MARS_SOM_SYSTEM , I stuck in a bootloop. I have downloaded the MARS_Product_Overlay apk and place it.
I am willing to help if you need further info.

Wow, I'm glad the BASE zip worked so far. You are getting a lot out of it. But I'm pretty sure there will be bugs around somewhere...
And thanks a ton for Your Post! I'm on the go but if You want to test around...
Move folders out of the _SYSTEM /system Folder like /product, /vendor and so on. Start with removing all except for one Folder and try if it boots up. If You can tell Me which folder causes issues or even which files will I handle it on GitHub for You.


About the Files @tardis_42 . You can find the Files on My Website / Google Drive. The link is in the Readme on GitHub

I wanna help but recovering from bootloop is a real pain in my a**. I somehow managed to disable all magisk moudules and get out of boot loop but I am not sure if I can do it again. The only two methods I knew about getting out od a bootloop is removing modules with TWRP but currently 1 iii doesn't have one, the other method is using the adb command but I am not sure how to send adb commands to the phone while it stucked in a bootloop.
Any ideas?

You can simply hold Volume down while booting to get into "Recovery Mode". It disables all Modules and most Apps. You can reboot from that into the normal state again... Should mention that somewhere I think... (It's a Magisk Feature too)

Edit: Does not work with USB Connected! Hold Volume down after You see the Bootloader Unlocked Message. Keep holding until You are in Android

Edit 2: Think Ill make Video guides too for some needs if there is enough Interest...

I tried there, but the file mentioned on the github readme (NgaResources.apk) isn't there - just these two:
