Sony rolled out Android Pie 9 50.2.A.0.352 for Xperia XA2 Ultra 2 days ago. I was wondering if I proceed with the update from my rooted Oreo, will I have any working Root for Android 9 for my phone?:confused::silly:

Only a few regions has gotten Pie so far. Makes it hard to work on getting root when most of us are still waiting.

Edit: XA2 Ultra H3223 USA just got Pie today.

You're rightly afraid. Steer clerar of magisk. Wait for a proper rooting method, or perhaps don't root at all.
This update is already a danger (see the previous brick wave), I would wait until things calm down.

XA2 Ultra owner, not updating. Staying on Android 8 for a good while.st

Strange! I was thinking exactly the same process would've been as you've mentioned but then I intended to wait for some expert reviews or suggestions. So you are saying that you did the root exactly the way Android 8 Oreo was rooted as in the process you mentioned? So how far has it been with Android 9 with Root access with you ?

Easy-Peasy Interactive root

i have conjured up a simple tool for rooting the xa2 ultra. nothing special, all you do is download the zip, extract it, and run the .bat file, and follow along in the cmd prompt window. its interactive so you will have to select a few options while in recovery. its really easy. bootloader must be unlocked. make sure to read the read me files, and also follow along with the command prompt.
hope someone tries it out. i would like some opinions. im not new to computers, but im new to scripting.
any feedback would be appreciated. go to the ftp site listed below and download Also stock android 9.0 is included, its seperate from the tool. extract the zip open folder and double click newflasher.exe its all set up. just select no on the 2 options that come up before the flashing, put your device in flashmode

strange that when I unzip a 1.8GB or so zip it just ends up with 2 small files (bat and readme) (even tried pulling the constituent files out from the zip independently). Also the batch file won't run due to windows security (understand running .bat is always risky no matter how good one's intentions might be)

hey, thanks man, im new to this so i really apprecite it. i unzipped the 1.8gb zip, left it for download, and also left the unzipped folder and unhid everything. i left a NOTE to do explain a little better, not much, but its a little more than i am now. i changed permissions on my end, so it should be ok. as long as everything stays together in the same directory, for example the desktop,...... it doent have to be that folder, but it cant be in any other folder either, as long its all on the desktop, its good. i figure you already know that, but it makes me feel better to let you know. the .bat extracts 3 other .zip, one .zip is a usb driver and it installs it also. you can hit no, cmd will read access denied, but in this script its not considered an error, so it will continue. it will also connect to adb automatically and push 2 files, .img, .zip, to the device. if there is a problem with adb connecting, it will give notice, prompt, and when hit enter it will kill adb server and exit cmd. if everything is ok,it will boot the recovery .img automatically, given you press enter to give it permission. once in recovery it prompts instructions for the user, and a new instruction will show after every enter. well, i guess i did explain it better than i did in that NOTE.
hope i dont sound to retarded and noobish, and i hope you give it another go.

again thank you, much appreciated

noticed your bat file has the zip file in system32 directory

the bat file does not work due to the paths I am guessing. Why would the zip want to be in system 32 windows directory?

There only seems to be Magisk root for up to 50.1.A.13.83 (Oreo)... Which is a massive pain because there have been tons of updates since, including Android Pie. I check this site loads and still nothing towards rooting for Pie.

So, not sure if this helps, but magisk seems to install fine in pie, but so far I'm having a ton of issues regarding freezes and reboots. Will search for a kernal fix, anyone have a clue to this? Just thought I'd inset my 2¢ into this and see if anyone has any insight to this. Thanks guys you do great work ?
