Hi all,

I'm happy to share with you my new TWRP recovery 3.1.0-0 built from sources. It works for Single Sim XA only.
As before you can't wipe /cache because it is used by TWRP and I don't know how to force unmount, decryption of /data doesn't work so if you want a full backup or explore files use an unencrypted data partition.

Download link:

Flash it with fastboot.

Have a nice day

backup
When I do backup with 3.1 TWRP and when I choose partitions to backup, it says: Data (excluding data stored in internal storage) - when backup is in progress info pop-ups that data will be backed up without eg. pictures or downloaded items.
My internal memory is not encrypted (was formatted) so why is that ?
This is not a case with previous 3.0.2 TWRP. ALL was included in backup.
regards,

Feature request
Hi rrvuhpg,
Is it possible for you to add complete DATA partition backup option in your recovery ?
I mean something like Data-image, so nothing would be excluded in backup.
Also if you could add phone battery charging when working in recovery, that would be very useful, please.
I know it sounds like "feature request", but maybe you could consider adding these items.
regards,

Hi, sorry but I will not add the possibility to add complete DATA partition backup. I will verify on the old TWRP but it should not too, it's a decision taken by the TWRP dev team.
If you want the official answer look here: https://twrp.me/faq/backupexclusions.html
For the battery charging I don't need to add the feature, you phone is charging well throug TWRP (look at the recovery logs) it only doesn't show the battery level, it's more aesthetic than usefull but if I release an updated TWRP I will try to show it. A golden rule to know is to charge the battery before playing with backup/restore/update.

Hi, ok I read this,and They say: "You may want to backup the internal storage as well but this is not possible in the TWRP GUI. You have to do it manually (e.g. with "tar" when your internal storage is mounted in TWRP".
Could you please explain how to do it manually using "tar", I mean how to backup Data partition manually ?
I am just curious why it is not recommnded to do full backup of Data including user data ?

Hi rrvuhpg,
Is it possible for you to make a tutorial how to make recovery TWRP for xperia xa single sim ?
What is configuration file for it and where it can be found? , how to compile it from sources ?
Which sources should one use ?
There are some tutorials about how to compile it, but not specifically related to xperia xa f3111.
What kind of tools should one use ?
You have an experience with it so based on it can you share your observations.
regards,

I don't need to make a tutorial, you can find all you need on Xda: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=1943625

and some very useful threads here : https://forum.xda-developers.com/general/xda-university

Hi, I read those tutorials and I am learning at present a lot of new things, but it leaves me still with many to read and acquire.
I found your files on github: https://github.com/search?utf8=%E2%9...ony_tuba&type=
and I was wondering if there were xperia xa configuration files. I figured those are for dual sim xa. So I would like to kindly ask you if you could put xperia xa single sim configuration files as when you do TWRP recovery for this phone (for which I am very grateful) anybody could use it and learn from it. Especially it is difficult to make boardconfig.mk correctly and not too many people write about xperia xa single sim building, compiling, etc. It is a not very popular smartphone I wonder.
I hope that it would be OK with you,
regards,

You can use the same device tree for single and dual (you can change all "tubads" by "tubass") , I will push changes to Github so you will have the correct Boardconfig. You will have to download the kernel tree from Sony or modify the Boardconfig to use a prebuilt kernel extracted from the modified boot or TWRP for your device.
If you want to learn I recommend you to try to build TWRP for a device who have a lot of documentation first, after it will be easy for you to do the same for XA.

Hi, rrvuhpg
Once again thank you for prompt reply, help and understanding.
Thank you very much indeed. Of course as my knowledge will progress please expect a lot of questions from my side.
