The bootloader unlock procedure will invalidate some extended functionality (not used by the open software) and will wipe your user data.
You can always use the FlashTool to update the firmware or return to stock SW.
so i got an older sony xperia where you provide the uart points, soldered it on and works but i only get the bootloader output. how can i make the uart output available in android? i want to build a custom kernel and set the uart output via cmdline parameter to connect to kgdb is uart exportet as a device in /dev/ or is there no driver support available?
Hi, may someone please help me clearing this issue I have? Thank you a lot.
maybe with IRCC is not possible but I've read it’s possble to call any app on the TV, maybe creating a "fake app" or a link that can drive app open url…
Thank you for you precious ideas!
The fastboot/flash mode are stored on a partition that is not available to users and should be fairly safe to assume that if you follow the guides provided on our website there will not be any issue.
The kernel (boot.img & recovery.img) is stored on separate partitions and even if you flash a broken kernel/OS you can always go to the fastboot (blue light) / flash (green light) mode to recover your device. You can always use the flashtool to flash the Sony image and recover from a bad OS update if your custom ROM does not boot.
Please note that during the unlock process the userdata is wiped.
Those files were released as a best effort for community but Android 10 is not officially supported for Xperia X
