Hi, I have Sailfish on my Xperia X right now, and is has a serious issue that makes it unusable.
I want to go back to Android, and I have found several questions about it on TJC, but several differing approaches are proposed there as well as in other sources. My particular situation is different from what I’ve found:
- I have only Linux computers (can’t use Emma)
- I don’t want to flash Android 6, 7 (my device came with this, bought it refurbished) or 8 - unless it’s an unavoidable step for getting to 10.
I want to flash Android 10, provided @xda-devs
It is suggested that you can flash any ROM from a Linux box using Flashtool, but instructions are meager, and I can’t tell whether they also apply to my case, where there’s Sailfish on the device.
Also, it says to flash an *.ftf file, but there isn’t one included in the downloads from xda.
There is, however this SW_BINARIES_FOR_XPERIA_ANDROID_9.0_2.3.2_V9_LOIRE.img file (as opposed to SW_binaries_for_Xperia_AOSP_M_MR1_3.10_v13_loire.img found on Jolla’s site), but this isn’t mentioned anywhere in the instructions for Flashtool.
So, I’m quite lost… Anyone has done this?
Do you think I need to install an older Android AOSP first (which one?) and then upgrade to 10 (but all just with Linux), or is there a way to flash the Android 10 directly?
