XZ Premium G8141 - AOSP non-boot

My problem: Phone is stuck at the "android" screen part of the boot-up process.

 

What I've done:

I have downloaded AOSP and followed the build instructions here

I have downloaded the SW Binaries from here

I have flashed boot, recovery, system, userdata, and oem. 

I have tried TWRP to clean the installation and try again.

I have rebuilt AOSP in both aosp_g8141-eng and aosp_g8141-userdebug

 

I don't know what else to try. Any suggestions?

Re: XZ Premium G8141 - AOSP non-boot

Gave up and went back to stock. Shame I can never use the Camera, Fingerprint unlock, or Android Pay, again though. That'll teach me for buying into proprietary systems Slightly smiling Face - Edit. Just keep receiving warning after warning after warning about the root. Phone is unusable.

 

Disappointed in both myself (for thinking I could revert back to the original ROM) and Sony (for not providing the ability to re-lock, like all their other devices)

 

Most expensive brick I ever did buy Grinning Face

Hi,

i just built a clean AOSP build following the instructions

1. remove your old Android folder

2. start from the begining using the latest instructions from our website

 

Please note:

that there are changes in the instructions and new vendor binaries

on the AOSP build fingerprint and camera work

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I've followed the new instructions on a new install of Linux, but still no-go unfortunately Slightly frowning Face

 

It gets to the point it says "android" whilst changing colour and sits at that point forever.

 

Once I get a replacement phone, I'll spend more time debugging and developing with this one, but for now I need to be able to use it ^.^

Re: XZ Premium G8141 - AOSP non-boot

Hi,

please flash the latest Sony Sw using flashtool then flash AOSP again

https://developer.sony.com/develop/open-devices/get-started/flash-tool/

I suspect that you have issues with the firmware (the firmware is too old)

Regards

Alin
