SparkOS is an AOSP based ROM, packed with many features without sacrificing stability and performance.
In short a fully functional operating system as stable and customizable as it should be.

UNOFFICIAL Spark OS

Code:
/* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/


Note: FLASH WITH A12 FW ONLY! DO NOT FLASH WITH A13 FW!

Credits to loipuru for the build.​

Notes

1. This ROM is, mainly for testing purposes only and may or may not contain unexpected bugs

2. You need to flash Stock Android 12 before flashing this ROM (61.1.X.X.XXX)

3. If you came from a SODP based ROM, you need to go back to official Android 12 firmware, and boot until you get to the Xperia Launcher

4. 120Hz & HS (renamed to Pause Charging) can be enabled from the QS Panel

5. Device may feel a little sluggish due to kernel still being WIP

6. SELinux is Enforcing

What works?​

• Wi-Fi
• Mobile Data (not on US Model)
• Bluetooth (BT Audio is dead, will be fixed in future builds)
• GPS
• LED (only while charging)
• Flashlight
• Fingerprint Sensor
• Sound
• Vibration
• 120Hz
• Battery Care
• HS Power Control
• Cameras

What's broken?​

• Camera addons like Panorama for example, can't be installed by default, but you can install them if you flash the module provided below (Libs will be added by default in future builds so that the module won't be needed)
• Regular 120FPS doesn't work in Cinema Pro, only SlowMo 120FPS does
• SDCard may or may not work (e.g it asks you to format it)
• SIM isn't detected on xx62 model (US Variant)
• Bluetooth Audio is dead for now (Also will be fixed in newer builds, for now only Speaker/3.5mm works)
• Proximity sensor makes the device freeze, (e.g putting the phone to your ear in a call) this can be fixed by adding the "Sensors Off" QS Tile and then enabling it during a call
Settings > System > Developer options > Quick settings developer tiles > Sensors Off

Clean Flash:​

fastboot flash vendor_boot [vendor_boot image]
fastboot reboot recovery
Factory Reset > Format data/factory reset
Apply update > Apply update from ADB
Code:
adb sideload <rom.zip>
Back Arrow > Reboot system now
BUT If you want to flash Magisk go to
Advanced > Reboot to bootloader
Code:
fastboot flash boot_a [magisk boot image]
fastboot flash boot_b [magisk boot image]
fastboot reboot

Updating from a older build (Dirty Flash):​

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot reboot recovery

If you've had Magisk flashed before you need to reflash it again, go to the steps below the Clean Flash and do the same again, then reboot and you should still have Magisk

Thank you for your great work!
A few feedbacks after 1 week of using your ROM
Most features work very smoothly, can use Photo Pro, Cinema Pro, RAM uses less than Stock ROM
Bugs in my device
LED light only works when charging, not when there are missed notifications or missed calls
Bluetooth Audio does not work (a Bluetooth headset device can be connected to the phone but no sound, like the Sony SP800N)
Recommended for daily use? Yes, if you are not using a bluetooth headset
