    HOW TO INSTALL & Update
    CLEAN INSTALLATION IS NEEDED
    • Flash the latest firmware (47.2.A.10.107) with Newflasher
    • Fully boot it once and check everything is alright(skip every connection to make your way to homescreen)
    • Flash and boot the TWRP-3.5 given in this post
    • Format data and factory wipe(swipe the slider in 'wipe')
    • Flash ROM
    • Flash any addons (GApps, Magisk...)
    • Reboot and profit!
    How to update from an older ArrowOS?
    - Flash the ROM
    - Flash Nikgapps/Addons
    - Reboot
    (Seems NikGApps does support backup script. It can Backup/Restore anything installed from NikGApps zip and Addon zip, during installing ROM. Reflash them to restore.)

    You won't need to flash gapps if the new update zip name include "gapps", you can just flash it on the top of vanilla version.

    Is it possible to port stock camera or GGAM, because the current camera app is not stable and sometime is freezing ? And of course Sony album. Thank you for your hard work - for now the ROM working very smoothly and well (y)

  • Live display and stock camera should be added.

    thanks for your work
    Awesome work, everything works fine on G8142.
    The only thing I noticed is SafetyNet not pass ctsProfile with Magisk.
    I used MagiskHideProps as a workaround.
    Hello, you can do below steps to get Safety net pass
    1, Make sure Magisk hide is on, and go to modules
    2, search for 'MagiskHide Props Config' and install it, reboot when it finished
    3, Install termux in play store, go to termux and type
    su Give root permission,

    It will ask you two time,
    y enter
    y enter and it will reboot
    Then Safety net will be fine

  • Is camera2api supported?
    If you want Gcam to work, go for the SODP, but trust me that Gcam does not work a miracle (It may on some models but not on my G8141). Based on my experience with Gcam and SODP .. very bad. The camera was barely focused, more or less dead autofocus. Photos are streaked. I prefer stock thousand times over SODP.

    First of all, thank you for your work. I failed to swipe in using twrp3.2.1 on g8142 device. Is it necessary to use twrp3.5.0? If not, I don't want to update twrp3.5.0 temporarily, because my twrp3.2.1 is Chinese, my English is poor, and it's not convenient to use. Maybe I will update this ROM one day in the future, Anyway, thank you again for your work. You are the best. I hope you are happy every day

    Hello my Chinese friend, some guy told me the 3.2.1 is working, what's the issue of can't swipe? Can't flash flash after swipe or..? All you need to know is wipe-format data, wipe-swipe and format factory, and install, isn't so hard and just few things you have to do on twrp, anyway let me check if Chinese is present in twrp3.5

    Isn't it possible to take a long exposure for more than 1 second?

    Thanks to my friend. My problem has been solved. I wrote the Chinese translation of twrp on paper, updated it to version 3.5, and downloaded ROM again. I tried once, and the problem has been solved. I have encountered a similar problem before. The writing failure may be that the version of twrp is too low to boot the ROM writing device, or the network using VPN is unstable, and the breakpoint can be downloaded to The ROM file of is damaged. Thank you for your hard work in ROM. let's use Android 11 when Sony doesn't officially update. As time goes by, we will all replace new mobile phones, but we won't forget your work. During the time of using XZP, you have updated the mobile phone system, bringing a better experience
