    47.1.A.12.205. I do not really need to update. Given that I do not have access to a computer, can I ignore Sony? If I update, do I lose the DRM patch till I apply XperiFIX again? Could I delete the update from my mobile?

      You can ignore the Sony update message. If you flash a firmware, you have to run XperiFIX again.

    So unlock the BL means no OTA right? But can I update my device by flashing the firmware with computer(newflasher etc.) without loss of all the data?

    Updated on XZ1 Compact and camera is not working, doesn’t make shots at all.

      The only possible reason is a problem with TWRP. Maybe there was a problem mounting the storage or something like that. Please open a ticket and we will check this together. 🙂

    @Storm, just a quick one as the Magisk V16.0 safety net is failing all the time. Is there anything I need to do or worry about? I read something about Google changed something in their configuration? How can I fix this issue?

    Working perfectly!
    Waiting for Magisk V17 as it seems there is still no way for Xposed :-/

      The next update will support latest Magisk versions. I fixed the compatibility issues. 🙂

    hi. my windows its 64bit and the app its for 32bit,keeps freezing and won’t connect

    • XperiFIX Post authorReply

      XperiFIX is for 32+64bit Windows. Please check if your firewall is blocking XperiFIX, that could freeze the application. Also make sure you are in fastboot mode (blue LED). Please use the ticket system if you have still problems.

    Hi St0rm. Nice Job vou have done. Before i give It a try, i would like to know if xperifix will do a ta backup. I am Not sure how to Backup with LB and no root.

    Nabend Heiko. Schöner scoop mit xperifix. Kompliment. Ich bin auch schon ein paar Jahre bei xda unterwegs, aber beim xzp muss ich zugeben das ich super verunsichert bin. Das liegt aber auch am thread bei xda. Selten so ein Chaos und so dreiste leecher erlebt. Naja das hat alles dazu geführt das ich den Ãœberblick verloren habe und mein xzp noch komplett jungfräulich ist. Nun aber zu meiner frage: macht xperifix auch ein ta backup im Falle eines unberührten drm’s? Ich trau mir das irgendwie nicht zu, zu rooten, drm zu sichern. Wenn ich roote geht das drm doch schon verloren oder? Aber soweit ich gelesen habe brauche ich doch vollen root um drm überhaupt sichern zu können oder nicht? Bin echt froh das du deutsch verstehst, an dem Text hätte ich mir auf englisch sicher einen abgebrochen. 🙂

      Moin Sven, danke dir! Also bisher war es nicht möglich ein TA Backup zu machen, denn dafür würde man temporär Root benötigen (also einen Hack im laufenden System). Im Grunde ist es total einfach mit XperiFIX. Du musst lediglich die Entwickleroptionen öffnen, dort OEM Freischaltung (Bootloader unlock) erlauben. Danach auf der Sony Entwickler Website den Entsperrcode anfordern und den Bootloader damit entsperren (via fastboot). Achtung: Sobald du den Bootloader entsperrt hast, setzt sich das Gerät automatisch auf Werkseinstellungen zurück (kompletter Datenverlust – also vorher alles extern sichern). Sobald der Bootloader offen ist, einfach in Fastboot booten und XperiFIX drüber laufen lassen. Danach hast du TWRP, Root und DRM patch hinter dir. Cheers! 🙂

    Same issue here with the camera, did you ever get it figured out? My camera app just hangs, not taking any pictures at all.


    • XperiFIX Post authorReply

      There were users reporting the same issue. They were able to fix it. The reason was using “Flashtool” to flash the firmware. After using “Newflasher” instead, XperiFIX worked smooth without any problems. So it could be a bug in Flashtool that is causing errors with the fix.

    Dear administrator,i have buy the exprifix .but the system appears ::
    please wait
    waiting vor adb access….
    i have correct mounted twrp3.2.1.0 version in my G8142 .why the softeware appear the metions?

    • XperiFIX Post authorReply

      That can only be due to two things. Either your firewall is blocking XperiFIX / adb or you have not installed the correct Sony device drivers. It must be recognized as “Sony XXXXX ADB Interface” in your Windows device manager, while TWRP is running.

    • XperiFIX Post authorReply

      It’s supported since weeks 🙂 German: Die Firmware wird bereits seit einiger Zeit unterstützt. Es gab nur keinen offiziellen Blogeintrag dazu. Die Gerätelisten werden auf dem Server aktualisiert und von der Software automatisch beim Start heruntergeladen.

    • XperiFIX Post authorReply

      It does! You have to use the manual mode in XperiFIX and select the related TWRP and Magisk, then start the fix.

    Can you explain me how it works:
    Now I’m using 47.1.A. 12.270 with XperiFix patch.
    Today an update 47.1.A.16.20 is available from OTA.
    If I install update then XperiFix will still works or I should again patch my phone with XperiFix by computer after I will install the update ?

    Hi I am currently running
    everything works fine but phone keeps wanting to update.

    xperifirm says latest firmware for my phone is

    is this new firmware safe to flash? or do I need to wait until android pie is working with xperifix?


    • XperiFIX Post authorReply

      The fix will NOT work with Android Pie. If you want to keep the fix, please don’t upgrade.
