Tested for 2 days. Works great. Stable so far.
Had to come from Android 11 ArrowOS due to modem instability.
Very nice of you to include Sony Album/Music.
Too bad when saving the images taken on the MicroSD card the android.media updates very slowly and they only show up in 5-15 seconds.

To get VoLTE working on China Unicom/Telecom/Mobile upon flashing ROM:

- flash stock, flash recovery
- before 1st boot in stock, install this patch in recovery: it adds IMS profiles into /oem
- boot stock (!) and make sure VoLTE picks up, we need to let ROM set the modem and reboot
- when VoLTE is proven to work on stock, you may reboot into recovery, clean Dalvik and ART, format /data and flash this ROM.

/volte fix credits to machao44 and bbs.gfan.com - rest in peace dear chinese forum...

Hi all, installed it last night and the only issue I've encountered is with BT and it's driving me crazy. It FC with my LG buds and Amazon Echo+ . This is a big problem. It´s the dual sim model , tried disabling VoLTE, NFC, the usual stuff. Some devices work like my Flex2...haven´t tried the car yet but I suspect it will fail as it seems to be associated to media or HD audio.
Any help would be great or I need to try other rom

Sony Xperia XZ Premium
Hi, can anyone help me? I'm using this rom and it's fantastic but I have a very slow speed connection with WiFi, on my pixel 3a no problem can go at full WiFi speed but xzp can't reach 1mb/s... I don't know what to do, any tips?

Hello XDA Forum,

I just got hold of a new Sony Xperia XZ Premium phone (G8141) which I planned to load with the Pixel Experience ROM. I had selected PE because it is highly recommended and compatible with a number of Sony devices. Now I have the phone I went to download the ROM only to find that all Sony devices and links have been removed from the PE website. It was there just a week ago!

I asked the PE support channel and they said the maintainer left and suggested I try XDA for help. It seems a little extreme they would just obliterate all existing Sony devices from their website. Personally, I would have left it there with a note that it's no longer maintained with a link to an archive but, hey... what do I know?

I found the download links in this thread but note that the ROMs are labelled "unofficial". Is there any difference between this version(s) of PE ROM and what was on the PE website just a week ago?

I also note the download file is labelled as being for the G8142 model. Is the same ROM used for both single and dual SIM (G8141/G8142) models? Are there any caveats to this? TWRP is different for the two models.

has anyone succeeded encrypting their device XZ Premium device after installing the ROM? Mine goes into a boot loop when I want to encrypt it, and does not boot the OS when encryption is enabled.

I disabled it for now because I can't figure it out and I don't if I'm the only one here with the issue.

System working great, but don't working google maps. When you open this app, device go restart. Also don't working google pay and NFC as payment. And so NFC the system sees. How can this problem be solved?

    • 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).
