Hi,

I will release here my updated "boot.img" files for the Xperia XA Ultra Single Sim.
You must have an unlocked bootloader to flash with Fastboot.
You don't need to be on the same firmware as the boot image that you want to flash.
You have to flash SuperSu again from TWRP just after flashed new boot to avoid bootloop.
All boot images have "ro.secure=0" and "ro.debuggable=1" in default.prop file
and "forcencrypt" of internal memory switched to "encryptable" in fstab.mt6755 file.

Quote:

The Fastboot command is:

fastboot flash boot NAMEOFIMAGE.img

Follow the guide from @Yooooomi to flash new firmware on your Ultra to avoid bugs and brick: https://forum.xda-developers.com/xa-...htool-t3551319

Releases:

24/01/2017: From 36.0.A.2.109 kernel sources and Ramdisk from 36.0.A.2.109 firmware.

What else is included in this kernel. Battery or sound tweaks?

Nothing. I made it for rooted users and because you can't repack the kernel from "ftf" firmware. (usefull if you want to play with the ramdisk)
You can ask Sony for a kernel changelog

Thank you for your updated kernels, I'll try them when I have a chance.

Out of interest have you seen the development being done for the Z5 kernels on this thread...

https://forum.xda-developers.com/xpe...el-dm-t3301605

Do you think we could ever have such a tool working for the XA Ultra?

Maybe yes, porting some tools is possible but as you can see we don't have any dev or power users for our devices and I will not try to do all alone, I don't have enough coffee.

Yes I can but you will have to wait some days, can you send me the boot.sin from the ftf firmware?

Hi, there is no modified boot for 36.0.A.2.146 firmware that's probably why you have a bootloop. Download 36.0.A.2.123 firmware with Xperifirm included in Flashtool.

I didn't find .123 firmware, probably because its in older SONY server ;
thank you.
