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.

2 thoughts: since I see sony is being weird about supporting US models with AOSP, can this be confirmed to work all models of XA2/XA2 ultra? since the link posted here for the ultra says it's for the XA2 it's the same twrp for both?

There's no XA2 forum which is why I posted here. If you want legit XA2 Ultra release ping me later on hangouts or IRC. Also I only tested H3113 cause I don't have 5 other XA2's and 4 XA2's Ultra.

"legit" as in, we are talking labelling issues or will there be problems on the ultra?

*edit* noticed you did say this was only tested on H3113, anyone else care to try?

I was asking to be sure if this will work for all versions both US and international as sony seems to have split support between the two.

Xperia XA2 (H3113, H4113) and Xperia XA2 Ultra (H3213, H4213) have sony AOSP support. The others Xperia XA2 (H3123, H3133, H4133) and Xperia XA2 Ultra (H3223, H4233, H3212?) do not have sony AOSP support.

I want to split support between pioneer and discovery even tho this build will probably work.

Texas ?
It says root will be gone once I flash twrp, can I reflash a patched Magisk boot.img after I install this twrp? will I then have both?
This is what I did:

It's important to note, if you want root, download magisk.zip before you fastboot boot twrp.img, then once you boot twrp, you go into TWRP and do adb sideload twrp.zip (the instructions say adb push, but in fact it's adb sideload). if you want root, after you sideload twrp.zip, go to install in twrp, and install the magisk.zip

once that's complete then reboot to partition A

then you will have both twrp, and root

First time that Sony make something like this, I didn't know that in AOSP they just mention H3113 and not the other models, hope that the differences are just the bands and not the internal hardware as it will difficult the development

Check the other thread about the (I think) H4213 aosp build someone is running... But even Sony's website confirms only select models are fully aosp supported.

so how do we flash this via adb ? fastboot flash (recovery then name.img)
"fastboot boot twrp.img" will load twrp, if you would like to permanently install, "adb sideload twrp.zip" then if you want root, go in twrp and install magisk.zip in TWRP (not sideload), then reboot to the A partition

do not fastboot flash anything for this
