A few things to “iron out” when going throug the flashing of the device:

  • Providing IMEI of sim card 2 is not working (it needs sim card 1 on a dual sim device)

  • I have updated to Android 11 (as per suggestion), yet the script wants AOSP for Android 10.
    Is this expected?

  • Write down which AOSP file needs to be downloaded; there is many to be chosen from; and finding the right one takes time. Plus : get the script to download it?

  • After booting into android (right after flashing), one has to re-enable developer options & usb debugging again

This is made clear in instruction step 6.

Many people seems to be confused by it, so i guess it could do with a clarification. But ultimately the instructions are correct, the two are only loosely related. But the actual port is AOSP10-based.

This is stated in instruction step 5. Sony probably doesn’t allow automated downloads (EULA and crap like that). And the link is seemingly to a specific version.

About the actual AOSP file; the script is mentioning the generic name of the file to download, i.e. the version is missing. Given there are many versions, it would be very handy to have it
