Hi,

I will release here my updated "boot.img" files for the Xperia XA Ultra Dual 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:


12/28/2016: From 36.0.B.2.109 kernel sources and Ramdisk from 36.0.B.2.109 firmware.
https://mega.nz/#!cxI3SJaC!o-aqc2gUZ...B1bIDB3ROxyd7Y

04/01/2017: From 36.0.B.2.146 kernel sources and Ramdisk from 36.0.B.2.146 firmware.

Hi, it's not a Rom just a boot.img for unlocked bootloaders with stock kernel built from Sony open source archive.
36.2.B.2.109 boot should fix the front camera not focusing after root.

After testing I found out that the boot does have problems
Which are:
1-Screen doesn't turn off completely, it stays at a very dark state which can be noticed in extreme low light conditions and if u turn the screen back on u will notice a a static on the screen and then it functions normally.
2-system brightness level meter doesn't work but third party apps can be used to change that.

Hope that helps and u come with even better boot in the future and thank u in advance.

Hi, thank you for the feedback. I don't have any unlocked Ultra (only have a unlocked XA F3112) so I can't test new releases or try to debug anything. I don't make any changes to the kernel source code, only build the kernel and repack it in a stock ramdisk with very small changes for root, nothing more. I hope that an user will be able to fix bugs.

For those who are struggling with the front facing camera, I finally solved it without installing any kernel or modify anything from the system. Downgrade to 36.0.A.1.111 (should be the one one with service unit exchange or smth like that). Had installed gapps stock (but I suggest u don't delete the Sony camera app - Instagram and Snapchat work perfectly fine) + xposed + adoptable storage.
As a final mention my devie is F3211

Here's step by step what I did, I hope it will work for your device too:
1. Go to xperifirm and download the 36.0.A.1.111 firmware (service unit exchange)
2. Create a bundle on the flashtool within the firmware folder
3. Flash it
4. Happy rooting!

There is however something I have to mention about this fw: you'll probably not receive any system updates

IF U ARE A SNAPCHAT USER install Snapchat before messing the system up with xposed
