IMPORTANT: IT IS TEST VERSION. I CAN'T PROMISE ALL FUNCTION WORKS.
BUT EXTHM UI IS BASED ON LINEAGE OS, SO I THINK IT CAN WORK.

IF YOU FIND ANY PROBLEMS, DON'T HESITATE TO TELL ME.
NEW FUNCTION:FACE UNLOCK

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

  • exTHmUI is an open source Android project with Touhou element, based LineageOS.
Important Information
1. This ROM has nothing related to ODM images! So you don't need to ask/install anything like that, just follow the instructions.
2. This ROM will never work with any versions of Google Camera (GCam)!
3. You need to flash Stock Android 10 or Lineage OS 17.1 before flashing this ROM.
4. For VoLTE, you need to boot into stock firmware and enable it before flashing this ROM!
5.If you cam from SODP ROMs, you need to go back to official Android 10 firmware, and boot into launcher.
6. I don't allow anyone put my ROMs to other forum, especially China Coolapk.

Downloads Links

Unofficial-build: Link (Upload in MEGA)

Sorry, I don't have AFH account :(

Flashing and updating
How to flash

Make sure you upgraded to Official Android 10.0 from Sony
【If you flash any other Unoffical Android 10.0, you don't need to flash the Stock ROM :)
Unlock bootloader is necessary.
Download latest platform-tools from google

1. Install fastbootd drivers, guidance
2. Put your device into fastboot by volume up key.
3. Enter fastbootd:
Code:
fastboot reboot fastboot
【Use Sony's Recovery and thank you. TWRP and Lineage Recovery not work in fastbootd :(
4. Flash Exthm UI

But you need to erase data】

5. If you are first time to flash Exthm UI, Wipe the old userdata:

Flash Magisk in recovery.

Yeah I know, he's on the same discord server as me ^^
Thank you anyway :)
May I ask you to send me in dm the link to the given discord server if it is public? I would like to follow the development for xperia 5 ii. If if is private, then don't worry I understand ;).

@ShionKagurazaka Interesting project. From the OP it seems that our (OpenGApps) SetupWizard is replacing your custom installer? Could you elaborate on that? Maybe we could work on that and make it stick instead of removing.
Thanks for your reply. Yep I have said that don't use opengapps :(
But I think you can replace the PackageInstaller. I will upload it
And another important thing. The Rom Source is updated. I will build it again for Xperia 5 II
But first I should release it for Xperia 1 II :(
And I wanna know if this ROM have some bugs

You misunderstand it my bro.
I mean OpenGapps use Google PackageInstaller.apk replace Exthm Custom Packageinstaller.apk :)
But no matter what, Thanks for your replay

I ask from Exthm UI Project Developers and he told me a way to solve it:
use Getprop, If find " ro.exthm.version ", escape Replace Package Installer:)
