Hi all!
Happy to share a workaround for root and successful DRM fix.
If you lose your drm key, that's okay, this fix will restore all function which depends on it (picture quality, super vivid mode, etc.....). There's nothing satisfying than using your phone at its full potential with your own custom. Spot the difference!!!!

1. Unlock bootloader
2. Flash boot.img (Patched to be compatible with the drmfix)
>>> fastboot flash boot boot.img
3. Flash recovery.img
>>> fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
4. Boot to recovery by holding vol - and power; then swipe to allow modification and Format data (mandatory)
5. Flash drmfix.zip
6. Flash Magisk 14.0
7. Boot to android, you're done!!!

Type *#*#7378423#*#* then >>Service info>>Configuration or >>Service tests>>Security to check if all your keys are active.

F3311? You mean Xperia XA or Xperia E5?

Unfortunately, it's flashed well, no error.
Before i flash the drmfix, just 2 first lines are [Unknow Error] and the other lines are all [Active], Number or something like that
After i flash the drmfix, all of them are [Unknow Error]

That means the drmfix you've flashed has deleted your credential which is located at /data/credmgr/ . For sure the linked drmfix here will not delete anything in your system.

Note: This drmfix will not be compatible with another boot.img different from the O.P. You have to do some mod in your boot.img to make this working. If you want to, let me know.

Post here your boot.img then, I will try to mod it. But make sure you still have your credmgr.db file which is located at /data/credmgr, this Fix won't work without it.
