Our mission is to offer the maximum possible stability and security, along with essential and useful features for the proper functioning of the device

This build does not use Sony Open Device sources, but it's built using stock sources (like Lineage OS 17.1, BlissRom and other ROM) hence it's stable

Based on Android 10.0

RIL

GPS
Camera (memory leak fixed)

Some tips
How to pass SafetyNet Check that is, hide root permissions from apps that detect it

Magisk 20.4 does his work pretty well, so often just flash Magisk zip directly after flashing the ROM, then reboot.

If you already flashed and booted ROM, don't wipe anything, but try this.

• Flash Magisk;
• Reboot to system;
• Open Magisk, enable Magisk Hide from settings, then go to Magisk Hide section and hide:
- PlayStore
- PlayService
- Google Pay (if installed)
• Go to Settings > Apps and wipe data of:
- PlayStore
- PlayService
- Google Pay (if installed)
• Open PlayStore and wait ~1 min. Then go to settings section and scroll down. There should be: Certified Device.

After this, from Magisk hide all apps that you don't want to detect root permissions and they shouldn't detect it anymore.

How to fix camera crash

Camera crash occurs because of cache optimization that isn't present anymore when you dirty flash and wipe cache/ART. You'll need to recompile it opening a terminal emulator (Termux) and using:
Code:
cmd package compile  -f -m speed com.sonyericsson.android.camera
(Thanks to derf elot)

Why GCam doesn't works?

Modded GCams need full RAW support, that is locked on ROM based on Sony Stack (like this). So GCam will simply crash if installed. Anyway there is one version that doesn't use API2 and works almost well, you can download it directly from PlayStore. Obviously it won't support HDR+ (and currently I don't plan to add it, it is far beyond my skills).

But Google camera is working, good enough for me
It is not high customisable but very stable, you wouldn't feel the difference between stock and this ROM

Yeah, Arnova's modded GCam does not work because of lack of raw support.

You can install GCam from PlayStore though. It hasn't HDR+, but photo sphere works.

The good: Very stable ROM, almost everything tested seems to be working, stable network signal, the most stable so far. I hope it gets updates at some point. Good work.
Anyone wishing for a close to stock stable Android 10 should try it.
The bad: the stock camera is crashing but that's already said.
It would be great if you could bring Sony sound settings but that is a little harder I think

Thanks for feedback. There is a fix in the second post. Starting from next build it shouldn't crash anymore on clean flash though. Do you have a XZ1 single sim or dual?
