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.

Texas ?
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

    I wonder where the inbuilt Sony recovery is stored then ?
    In /boot.

    Hello. I'd like to root my Xperia XA2 Ultra, and I would like to backup TA partition (Sony DRM etc.) so I can restore it after rooting. If someone can tell me how to do it, I would appreciate it.
    Thanks.
    You can't back them up, you don't really need them though. The camera works fine without them on tue XA2

    ---------- Post added at 08:09 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:01 PM ----------

    Wait what. I've held off on rooting until the kinks get worked out. That and I haven't ever done it with a Sony device before. My understanding is that Sony DRM can be lost forever if not done correctly. What exact functionality would I lose?

    So how would I go about keeping (saving for later) the drm if possible? I'm assuming unlocking bootloader, twrp, rooting and installing xposed is normal.

    I just don't want to mess up to the point of no return. Sony drm, tremble, a/b system and google pay are anomalies I haven't dealt with before. My device is the XA2 Ultra H3223 on build 50.1.A.5.59 (latest), which means I should hold off on xposed :(. It automatically updated on me.
    Google Pay works as long as Xposed isn't installed which would be the case given the firmware you've updated to.

    Basically, you lose absolutely no functionality... Camera, Google Pay are working.

    On older Sony devices the Camera functionality was lost with the DRM info, but not on this device.

    How do I install 3.2.1-1 if there is only 3.2.1-0 install zip available?
    I'm in process of getting new installer package so you just got to wait.

    @LuK1337
    How does it work then, since it's an a/b device (first for Sony) i mean will twrp be booted in slot _b or how? And the Same fastboot flash, will it also flash to slot _b, meaning the inbuilt Sony recovery won't be touched (vol- + power on bootup)
    Anyway interesting, I will try it on my spare H4313
    BTW the xposed issue is related to March sec patch https://github.com/rovo89/Xposed/issues/339
    1. Fastboot boot boots as your current slot
    2. You can't fastboot flash it as there is no recovery partition.
