Can someone upload the Indian Firmware 41.3.A.2.107? I'm in desperate need of it, because flashing other firmwares doesn't let me use VoLTE, thus barring me from making or receiving calls... Thanks in advance.
PS. Xperifirm has the updated version, which isn't yet compatible with the rooted kernels so far... Correct me if I'm wrong.

I have also tried with the combination of Power button + volume Up. I cannot access TWRP but the flashing of twrp was successfully via fastboot.

Power off phone. Wait 10 seconds as after the screen turns off it still takes a while to fully shutdown.
Push and hold vol down.
While holding down, power on the phone and continue holding down until in recovery.

You can let go off vol down after the Sony screen shows.

@twistedddx Thanks! That worked!
It is funny how this information it is hard to find - using Google I have found a description on how to enter recovery on Xperia XZ using Power key+Volume+Home (?!?). But Home key is a soft key so whenever the phone is off, this key is unavailable.

Hi guys, may i know do the boot.img will cause F8332 device unable to detect sim card?

I follow the guide to root my Sony Xperia XZ Dual - Singapore and i install Omni rom with clean install. but unable to detect Sim card.

Before i root my Sony phone i was using stock sony rom without issue.

For Singapore latest firmware is 41.3.A.2.128, but i flash the latest 157 boot.img

I had that issue too. You need to boot into TWRP and wipe your user partition. Then, when you reboot, you should see 64 GB but it does reset all your data and apps etc. so backup before you do that.

after wiped the usder partition? how to flash drmfix and magisk? I think both of them are wiped too

    NOTES
    BASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH SONY DEVICES
    1. ITS ALWAYS BEST TO REBOOT THE DEVICE SIGN IN TO GOOGLE ETC AND THEN SHUT DOWN DEVICE BEFORE FLASHING ANY KERNEL & RECOVERY
    2. ALL KERNELS PROVIDED ARE PATCHED USING SCRIPT BY SIR @serajr
    3. FLASHTOOL MUST BE LASTEST AND ALL DRIVERS MUST BE INSTALLED
    4. IF FOR ANY REASON YOU HAVE A BRICK DEVICE AND / OR BOOTLOOPS THEN PRESSING POWER+VOLUMEUP KEYS FOR 15SECONDS, SHUTS THE DEVICE DOWN FOR YOU TO CONNECT THE DEVICE IN FASHMODE AND FLASH THE FTF AGAIN.
    5. FOR DETAILED PRETEXT PLEASE CHECK THIS POST
    6. AND FOR FLASHING PLEASE CHECK THIS POST ALSO

    STANDARD DISLAIMER STATMENT APPLIES

    hey can you please update to support firmware .75
    done sir

    This is a great guide, thank you.

    I am stuck in a bootloop and I believe it is because the kernel KERNEL_F8331_41.3.A.2.192_CLEAN.img may not be matching the version of Oreo that I am on (41.3.A.2.192-R8E). If I skip flashing the kernel via FlashTool then the phone boots fine and I can also flash TWRP via adb fastboot.

    I used Emma to flash 1305-1010 Customized NOBA 41.3.A.2.192-R8E and the FTF for this file is the third link from the top here: https://xpericheck.com/device/F8331. I want to use the version of Oreo from Emma because it enables the fingerprint reader while having a strong mobile signal in the US and I would like to use this kernel so I can install Magisk via TWRP as well as drmfix (I do not have a TA.img backup).

    Any ideas on why I get stuck on a bootloop when flashing this kernel?

    Thanks!

    please tell me (step by step) what exactly you did?
    1. flashed twrp
    2. flashed kernel
    3. FLASHED DRMFIX.ZIP ?
    4. ...
    5. ...

    moreover you can always ditch EMMA and use FLASHTOOL (recomended) and within flashtool there is Xperifirm to download chunks of data from sony servers and to REPACK THEM (as you close xperifirm after download is finished - flashtool will trigger itself in repacking the ftf file with FCS script) .
    this newly created ftf file ( by you) can be flashed with CHERRY PICK options , you can always flash selective partitions using flashtool (not sure about emma, never used)

    now if you have lets say GERMANY/ EU / RUSSIA / SAUDIARABIA / INDIA build(S) of 41.3.A.2.192, and you flash it on your F8331 (which was on USA build having finger sensor disabled) , the finger sensor WILL WORK!
