Aroma compatible twrp (recovery.img) : https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=6006931924117889478
(tested on latest April Xperia Pie : 47.2.A.10.45)

BASIC guidance :

Be sure to read NewFlasher thread carefully first (Widevine L3 instead of L1 for locked bootloader).

0) recovery download
1) fastboot mode blueLight :$ fastboot flash recovery 270recovery9omni8-1FBEkeymaster3-twrp3_3_1.img
2) reboot STRAIGHT to twrp and always backup /boot only before Magisk-ified (needed with /system only in case of complete re-initialization or format, and for Treble roms)
3) flash magisk (min 17.3)
4) boot Pie (SafetyNet and Playstore certified should be ok with latest Magisk app after few mn)
Note: don't force remove bloatware: just disable them, so they won't reappear after future ota.

Once done, with your original /boot backup ( plus complete/full Magiskified backup), you can switch, without format /data, to my (xz1 enhanced) aosp Treble /system image: https://forum.xda-developers.com/pr...arm64aosp-9-0-0r21-microg-ufofficial-t3878115 , and restore back SonyXperia later with your full backup.

Future upgrade(ota):
-XperiFirm new firmware download + move away fotaKernel..sin & userdata..sin & simlock.ta + newflasher(with greenLight!)
-reboot STRAIGHT to recovery (and backup /boot only, before Magisk-ified)
-flash latest Magisk (min 17.3)
-boot Pie (SafetyNet and Playstore certified should be ok with latest Magisk app after few mn)

Optionally:
(-install Magisk Screen recorder or Snapdragon gallery, or aospEmail-SnapExchange free of analytics... )
-For better battery use KernelAdiutor with [conservative]highCpu & [ondemand]lowCpu (Adaway...)
Note: with or without su/hack, NightLight dim brightness is actually broken (wip)

Supplement:
This edition includes latest Aroma File Manager and TA partition backup: saves copies in sdcard/TWRP/ of TA, modemst1&2, boot.img plus some /vendor files like the identification build.prop ( default.prop fstab.qcom gps.conf uevent.rc). Every backup proceeds a copy of previous sdcard/TWRP/ TA.bin modemst1&2.bin and Id. build.prop in sdcard/TWRP/BACKUPS/.

with : TW_TARGET_USES_QCOM_BSP := false & Busybox v1.22.1

Thank you, working fine. How i change ui color? Flash the attached zips?

No, just re-create (sdcard)/TWRP/theme/ui.zip exactly, and then launch Advanced§ReloadTheme from twrp recovery . Since I didn't include languages/*xml in them, you can only select Settings§Language without my uploaded themes (ui.zip) first. (Advanced§AromaFM & backupTA lines are also missing in regular uiBlueClassic.zip xml).
They are many twrp themes on xda, just be sure to use 3.3.0 ui.zip compatible edition.

Thank you for this fine version of twrp.
I am getting this error when making a full backup (ticked all partitions)
"error backing up system image, cleaning up folder"
I am running stock 47.2.A. 10.45 and j4nn kernel. Ric is off (i can write in system) and twrp are flashed.
i press "cancel" when asking for a password.
Normally the twrp just backup everything without any issues, so i must do something wrong??
Kind regards torben5247
