can we flash xz2(h8296) firmware to xz3(h8416)?

Hi Everybody,


i need volte support jio in my h8416, which is not there. i tried to flash several regiuons roms. but nothing worked because, volte settings in sony phones are not gloibal they are sim dependent(means each time you swap the sim new settings will be applied, thats why it resttarts the phone). coming yo the problem, since xz3 not releasded in india, can we flash xz2 rom to xz3?  ...  else sony should push a software update which makes the modem selection global (Shouldn't be non-ims one) like all other phones. feeling sad being a sony fan.........


Thanks and Regards,

Karidi Prashanth
