Reflash Xperia XA2 to Android (Lineage)

Since I have a new Xperia 10 III now, my good old XA2 will go back to Android (here: Lineage) soon.

I could only find these instructions:

which require a Windows PC and Emma. But I actually want to install Lineage on my device.
Is there anything I should keep in mind flashing my device or will:

minus unlocking the bootloader cover my needs?

Hey there , saw ur post and i did the same ,using the wiki lineage for my xa2 ultra , i got it running with android 12 and lineage 19.1 now, had to do this exactly according to the wiki , i had sfos in a bootloop and emma not recognized my phone.

Thank you very much for your good wishes. Yes, I flashed my XA2 back to Android with 19.1 and MindTheGapps. I used

  • lineage-19.1-20220804-nightly-pioneer-signed
  • lineage-19.1-20220804-recovery-pioneer
  • MindTheGapps-12.1.0-arm64-20220605_112439

I tried the build from August 11 but that got me into a boot loop. I could not get a suitable Opengapp version for any 19.1 Lineage.

Fun fact: Reflashing your system to Sailfish when you have semi bricked your device is so easy compared to the PITA flashing Lineage. :smiley:
