You need it to run android 10. Go to this website:
https://developer.sony.com/develop/open-devices/downloads/software-binaries/

The PE website gave the wrong flash command. There isn't oem_a or oem_b. Just oem will do:
fastboot flash oem <file name>

And I presume you have updated your stock rom to the latest version?
i flashed my xzp with G8141_Customized CH_1308-5296_47.2.A.10.107_R4C followed the op to the letter, flashed newest magisk (No gapps) and the phone booted . sony camera worked etc.
camera and album work better than on pie rooted in my case..

but no sim signal. not even after 10 minutes. but it did recognize my phone number on sim.
I looked through this thread and read: You need it to run android 10.... well i tried it with this, and again followed op, then it was ok immediately sim connection.
Just wanted to let you know if anyone comes to this situation.

* on the other hand a question, safetynet does not pass... cts profile... is wrong.

i flashed this rom over 10.107 sony, flashed magisk (21.2) and manager 8.0.4 turned on magiskhide.
Anything i can do to remedy this?

I have a question,
The xzp has an 4k hdr10 display,

Is it at all possible to use it at that resolution? E. G. In youtube?
My question is about this rom, pixelexperience which runs welk for me.
It doesn't have 4k, but u can edit the build prop and enable 4k on YouTube. I did that and couldn't see any difference, same as with stock tho

Add these line at the end of build.prop

#4K for Youtube
sys.display-size=3840x2160
Thank you,
editing build prop in android 10 seems to not work, at least it wont stick on reboot,
magisk module MagiskHide Props Config seems to be able to make youtube think it is 4k , i can select up to 4k in youtube now..
However, when I make a screenshot, i thought, i might be able to compare the screenshots in different youtube resolutions, i get 1080 x1920 screenshots. so that won´t work. maybe youtube does 4k and the rom scales it back to full hd or the screenshot app is only able to do 1080x1920...
I had tried some resolution changing apps e.g. this one , but the thing is only the top left 1080x1920 of the display is then touch responsive... If you are not carefull you cannot get it back to normal. With a bluetooth mouse (and possibly keyboard) pre-connected you can go over the whole screen though.
of course this is all in pixelexperience + and i had not tried all of this on the stock rom, i have this phone recently and found pixelexperience + very soon to be the way to go, my experience with roms is stock , stock + magisk, and usually i used existenz on xperia z.. or xz.. series. not for this phone though..

Just use this recorder, it has 4k recording and 40 bitrate, so when zooming in u should be able to see the difference. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kimcy929.screenrecorder&hl=ru

    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.
