Hi I just got repaired my broken Xperia f5122, and this is my first time coming back to this thread for the last 1 and half year. I just want to ask, can I flash this ROM directly in recovery?
My version is Nougat (Stock-ROM,rooted).
I can't catch up with the instructions. Can you shed a light please? Thanks

Sorry for the long absence. We will release an update soon with some cool (maybe not) fixes.
Stay tuned. Thanks!

Thank you sir, my f5122 is in Nougat stock rom and rooted. Can I proceed or directly follow these steps?

How to Install:
1) Copy ROM to SD card and flash with recovery
2) Download SW_BINARIES_FOR_XPERIA_ANDROID_9.0_2.3.2_V9_LOIRE.ZIP, unzip and copy image to sdcard too
3) Flash Binaries with recovery to OEM/ODM partition
4) reboot
5) After reboot we need to flash/format userdata partition. So, download it and flash with ADB: fastboot flash userdata userdata.img or fastboot erase userdata
6) reboot.

"This ROM bring us Treble support ( ARM64 A/B ) structure for all GSI images based on 11 Android. Just flash any GSI at System partition after it. "

And I don't have idea where to start about this GSI. I'm willing to relearn from scratch about flashing. Thank you sir.

Download rom zip file and Xperia vendor zip file and place thme on sd card. Take backup of your data.

Then upgrade your rom to oreo either using official update or with Xperia Emma and boot up the phone too home screen and enable use debugging. Firmware needs to be updated so that custom roms can work with gps, Bluetooth etc.

Install the rom using recovery. Install Magick for root and open gapps for Google apps. Test performance for yourself.

I am researching on a good gsi myself so cannot advise you on that.

Auto Brightness with other GSIs isn't working.
EDIT: Also, with the latest build (without other GSI installed), device randomly freezes on a screen. Interactions do happen(I can lock the screen and swipe up to unlock-it makes locking and unlocking sounds) but screen remains frozen.

With a fresh install of Explosive_Lobster_F5121-06022021-R.suzu.zip I get a bootloop. And yes, I followed the instructions.
Edit: Successful boot when flashing the older build first.

Is it Android 11 related, that I cannot disable the music player any more? I always replace it with Vanilla music, which provides more features and supports replaygain.

What is the minimum CPU freq in this ROM? Since I went back to the default 883MHz in Lineage, I no longer have freezes (until now). I enabled 400MHz before.

    3) Flash Binaries with recovery to OEM/ODM partition
    4) reboot
    5) After reboot we need to flash/format userdata partition. So, download it and flash with ADB: fastboot flash userdata userdata.img or fastboot erase userdata
