Instructions :

SECURITY ADVICE

Don't flash ROMs or Magisk modules which set SELinux to permissive or you welcome malware on your device!


Install Latest Firmware

  • Grab the Sony Stock firmware using e.g. XPeriFrim. You should always flash the firmware matching the LOS build.
  • Grab newflasher and put it in the same folder as the firmware files.
  • Read the newflasher original post on XDA for general instructions!
  • Remove the following from the folder so they won't get flashed:
    • all *.ta files (keep the one in the boot/ directory)
  • Turn off your phone
  • Hold the volume down button and attach it via USB to your system till you see LED turning green
  • Run newflasher from within this directory to flash the remaining files
  • Skip the second optional step (dumping of trim area), it's useless if your bootloader is unlocked already and takes a long time.
  • Hit Yes for all the next questions asked in Newflasher(Only dumpin of trim area should be selected no and rest all questions should be selected as yes.
  • Once Newflasher flashes the Stock rom, boot into it and make sure volte is available.(VOLTE WILL NOT WORK ON BLISS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE IT IN STOCK ROM.
  • Incase you are not able to see volte icon in stock either your carrier does not support it or there is an issue with the stock rom(Try flashing it again).
  • Once you confirm Volte is available in stock, Flash the TWRP recovery and follow below instructions carefully.
  • Boot into recovery >> Format Data >> Power off the Phone.
  • Again boot into recovery >> Format Data >> Power off the Phone.
  • This time boot into recovery >> Wipe Internal Storage.
  • Flash ROM, Gapps, Magisk.
  • In the setup wizard select SIM 1 as the default sim for calls data and message.
  • Once Boot is complete, wait patiently for few mins.
  • Gto *#*#4363#*#* >> Phone Information >> IMS status.
  • Voilllaa you should have volte and dual sim both enabled.


Google Apps

Gapps are already included in the ROM and no need to flash it again.

Is dual card normal?
Is the SIM card reading speed normal?
I used the following version before and found that reading the SIM is very slow, more than 5 minutes, and the signal is a bit poor.

True, since I'm using the XZP as first phone, that's essential for me... Didn't try this new ROM yet but signal reception in the rcmiku Pixel Experience one was very poor... Except that, most stuff works fine... But you know, if you have an emergency you can't wait 5 or more minutes for the signal to kick in :eek:
Any feedback on SIM card reading in this ROM?

For Dual sim users its taking about 2-5 mins for sim detection and second sim is not getting detected for.
Till now I have not experienced any network issues, as this uses the same source as Bliss there should not be any issue with signal reception.
