I am not having XA1 Plus anymore. This kernel is development discontinued. Sorry for that.

Hello Xperia lovers :mad: , Today i am going to present you Xperia XA1 Plus Stock kernel with more usefull features :D :D . Since Xperia xa1 plus is not added into XDA yet, Project device is selected temporarily. Will move it later when form Moderators will add this device. ;)
No need to tell about what is kernel and what it do :confused: . because almost everyone know these days about kernel and its working process.
So with this kernel you will get twrp 3.2.1 (Latest build) which i have moded to work with MTP devices.
More ever in some devices Data in encrypted automatically. Forcefully data encryption is disabled in this kernel.




Just simply turn on your device, wait for viberation and white led. then press Vol+ OR Vol- button to enter recovery mood Both will work.
This is intial release of this kernel, will update it with more features time by time.
wait for next release with more useful mods and features
To flash this kernel simply install Fastboot and ADB drivers and use flashtool in fastboot mood OR
install ADB and Fastboot drivers,

Then put boot.img in adb and fastboot home path and Or switch off your device and press Vol+ button and attach usb cable


Code:
Fastboot flash boot boot.img

Fastboot reboot
Warning :
Code:
This kernel needs unlocked bootloader
Your Warrenty is void.
i am not responsible if something goes wrong with flashing.
Attaching Stock Boot.img also in case if anyone want to move to stock kernel again.
Many Thanks to developers who inspired us and created tools to work smoothly.

It's for latest firmware only? .117 one?
Does it support MAGISK or only SuperSU?
What about DRM fix/patch?

Sorry for so many questions, but probably some other user would ask them anyway :)
Yes , it support systemless magisk and supersu. I did'not checked with the other versions, may be supporting them or may be not.
DRM patch will be also in next releases of this kernel..

Hi!
I tried to change the frequency of the cpu with the app "kernel audiutor" and many other apps, but none of them managed to change the frequency of the cpu. I think the problem may be SONY ric

SuperSu is also working very well on it, but if you will flash systemless zip from Here . System mode Supersu will cause bootloops or stuck at boot animation. And magisk works without any error, tested by me.

Still busy with DRM patch, ric is enabled therefore you are facing this problem, will update it now.
