Hi guys, I've found a custom rom that seems to work for our XA ultra. I'm using an other phones rom as base.
I don't want to steal someone elses credits and/or work.
I haven't spoken with the author and I'm not aware of all the rules. I fell of the motorcycle when a dog tried to attack me so my hands(palms) are wounded. Feel free to help me on this journey. Finally no more sickening bloated sony rom.

Kernel used: https://forum.xda-developers.com/xa-...urces-t3639725
System image ROM: AOSP? 7.0 Need to contact author first.

Bugs:
- Battery shows as 1%
- No sound from speaker, MIC works
- Settings System app crashes when opening about phone
- Camera with weird blueish greenish hue/tint
- Share image upload doesn't show file browser

What's working:
- Touchscreen
- Keyboard
- WIFI
- Camera front and rear
- Auto rotate
- SD card
- Vibrations

No clue I contacted the author of the rom if it is okay to link his rom in this thread, will ask him if he replies. Not sure if it is an aosp or 7.0 modified to look like one.
I'm just happy we found a non sony rom to work as expected with our phone with minor issues. I did not port the rom just flashed system.img and it seemed to work. No major crashes overheating or anything like that. I know we can replace some files like camera libs so charger to get stuff working properly and maybe fix the settings crash when trying to open about phone with logcat? I know most fixes are listed in porting guide topics so hopefully it will be a piece of cake.
I prefer slim roms over any sony roms. TBH i debloated stock 6.0 rom but the phone was overheating and minor issues so I tried some other roms, i removed the backplate of my phone so I can test and remove thr battery cable to quickly reboot when it's stuck or looping. I have no problem with it since my screen broke I also took twrp backups incase it's needed. The sony threads are just too empty

As said by @Tahsin88 he have forwarded sources code links to me, very big thanks to him . Until now I worked with Elephone P9000 sources code as base and it was good on Marshmallow but for Nougat it uses a lot of files from MM and it's not good. New sources are even better to build Nougat based roms, I have to port them to XA and start building. It will takes some time but it's on the good way
