This ROM build will always mainly based on Sony AOSP Code and maybe include cherry-picks.
I plan to make monthly builds, after a new security patch level and the OEM binary got fully implemented, if there is no need for a critical hotfix.
Switch the A/B slot for every monthly release to make sure you execute the same amount of write cycles on the entire flash storage. (Extends hardware lifetime)Bootloader issue needs to get fixed to make custom roms bootable on slot B.
- fastboot & adb
- Stuck at SONY logo? Maybe you need to flash the OEM binary to oem_a and oem_b, while just oem is not enough.
- For a complete security patch you have to install the newest stock firmware and boot it once.
TL;DR Flash the latest stockfirmware, boot it once, to update your baseband/mobile network drivers and then flash this ROM.
(I prefer and support only newflasher from XDA and xperifirm to download the firmware.)
Maybe this helps windows users:
for a complete security patch you have to
1. flash the stock firmware using https://developer.sony.com/develop/open-devices/get-started/flash-tool/
2. build and flash the ROM
* The security patch may affect or not the proprietary parts depending on HW and implementation
* After official support ends you can still get security updates for kernel and Android but loader and firmware will be stuck to the latest official release
- Camera is under development.
- [TAMA] [AKATSUKI] [CRITICAL??] Speakers clipping and distortion
- A bugreport needs logcat, dmesg and a way to reproduce the issue.
- A crash of the system requires the content of the /sys/fs/pstore folder as bug report
- Be aware that a second reboot erases this folder
- A crash to the recovery partition requires additionally the content of the /dev/block/by-name/misc partition
- You get the content via `cat /dev/block/by-name/misc partition > /path/to/output/file.txt`
- To rescue a not responding phone:
- VOLUP+POWER for 3 Seconds -> RESTART with one Vibration.
- VOLUP+POWER for 20 Seconds -> SHUTDOWN with 3 Vibrations.
- VOLUP+POWER+CAMERA for 30 Seconds -> HARDWARE SHUTDOWN by discharging a capacitor.
