I have sony Xperia zx3. Model SOV39 (japanies rom) updated to official android 10.
Kindly help me with the following things.
Please give me step by step. How to proceed with to install a custom rom which is very stable(everything working) because i will do it only once. I need a pixel based custom rom because i want to have the unlimited storage option in it... . To store my photos... And also working gcam for best photos.. and a stable room with good performance and battery life.
Also kindly tell me which custom recovery will be best for my phone and best safe way to flash it to my phone and also safe way to unlock my phone's bootloader.... Kindly provide step by step procedure according to my requirements... I will be very thankful to you...
There's no official way to unlock bootloader. You can only rely on third party seller to unlock it for you (can't guarantee safety). There are online merchants who does this service but often expensive (almost half the price of xz3). I paid around 40 usd to unlock it.
I can't guarantee the safety of these merchants so you'll have to search for yourself.
As far I can see there's only two roms that are still actively support xz3, SonyAOSP by Martin and LineageOS if you are aiming for stability. Both are not Pixel-customed and you'll need to flash those modules urself via magisk (not recommended). Guide for SonyAOSP is provided in the first thread and as for LineageOS just go their site and search for xz3. They provide a guide that is more clearer than my future.
LineageOS provide in-house recovery if you flashing their rom, as for others I'm not very familiar.
Ahh, how I wish I didn't get a Japan model, it's a pain in the a*s to get it work with custom rom.
P.S yea i bricked it :')
