flash instructions? i think twrp is needed and we currently don't have it
Detailed instructions on Pixel site. There are ROMs for many models, including 8314 and 8324. Yes, it seems that TWRP is needed, and it also seems that someone somewhere has managed to develop one for Q...


********** IMPORTANT: README **********
### Be sure to have the latest ODM, even when you get a OTA!!! ###
To get this ROM and the OTA updater to work fine, you NEED TO follow a few steps:
1. Download Androxyde's FlashTool
2. Flash the latest STOCK firmware for your device, in order to get a
bootloader bugfix for unlocked A/B
3. Before flashing this ROM through your favorite recovery environment,
you *HAVE TO* flash the latest Sony Open Devices binaries for
your device through fastboot. They cannot be distributed in this
zip package because you have to accept their EULA.
** Make sure you flash the Sony ODM image to both slots:
fastboot flash oem_a SW_binaries_for_Xperia_Android_(blahblah)
fastboot flash oem_b SW_binaries_for_Xperia_Android_(blahblah)
P.S.: If you get signature verification errors on TWRP, remember to
disable package signature verification in the TWRP settings!!!

Hey there ! On the previous -beta ish- builds, you have to decompile the zip and all to get the bootimage to flash the zip

Starting monday, I'll distribute a bootimage where you can go to aosp recovery, and flash the rom via sideload.

Thank you! I am using Pixel ROM for my OP5, after trying all possible ROMS (there's many) and all possible kernels (there's many) and all possible cameras (there's many), and I can say that its simplicity and smoothness and speed are second to none! My battery drain when idle is 0.12% etc. etc. Let's hope that something similar is cooked for us here!

My XZ2C (H8314) is running android 9, it is rooted but without TWRP, since one has not been available for this phone, debloated, and running without the slightest problem. But, I would try the Pixel! (if you make it available also for the XZ2C).

Hey !

Well you have many ROMs available for your OP5 because people is using the same base for builds and it's very easy.

On sod we have an OSS tree.
Which gets constant upgrades and changes, this means that I'll build more than once a month.
Also there's special stuff to do, I'll write them on Monday when the needed oem release come out.

The advantage of this tree is that you can build any ROM pretty much very easily with minimal differences, just like other devices and it's with this process that I decided to settle for PE and maintain it

It happened for the second time for the phone to charge normally without being disconnected regularly. I took logs this time maybe it's helpful to you.

Hi !

Thanks for the report, although, if you're using a Quick Charge 1/2/3 charger, it's normal because the charger tries to ramp up the voltage but the device refuses because those chargers aren't supported and it may damage your battery.
I recommend you using a standard 5V1A/1.5A charger or a USB Power Delivery charger.

Cheers !

It's working. But I also have a trouble with a wireless charger. It just didn't charge. Phone says "Pluged, didn't charging". I'm using Sony official qc charger and mi wireless charger pad. Type c in is broken.
Charging working when phone is completely off or just boot up placed on wireless charger pad. But when charging pad disabled - charge stop and didn't work till reboot (it may work, but very-very rare, after many enable/disable wireless pad).

Also, sometimes image didn't smooth and kinda laggy. On stock it was normal.

Offtop: google pay also broken on PE. Magisk hide and props didn't working.

Added: Seems, google pay start working, but battery dissappearing before our eyes. Audio also Is interrupting on YouTube when screen is off.

You have to unzip the payload.bin and get the various .img files that you will then flash through fastboot following the steps of any other android 10 aosp rom. Keep in mind that you'll have to flash the 17th of jenuary's oem files as the most recent ones do not work with this rom and you will end stucked in the sony logo

1)flash latest stock firmware
2)install twrp (SODP or STOCK version?)
3)with fastboot flash newest oem binary for our phone on slot a and b
4)reboot to twrp and flash the pixel experience zip without any wipe
5)reboot
