How to enter flash mode

With device powered off, hold [VOLUME +] and plug USB cable in. Device's LED will turn blue, meaning it has entered fastboot mode. You will need an unlocked bootloader. To unlock it follow the official guide by Sony.


Model list

E2303 (European) - 8GB storage, LTE

E2306 - 16GB storage, LTE

E2312 - 8GB storage, 3G, Dual-SIM

E2353 - 8GB storage, LTE

E2363 - 16GB storage, LTE, Dual-SIM

Additional notes

- Camera will NOT work for now, it's broken kernel-side.

- This device has not been made by Sony, it's been manufactured by FIH hence kernel needed (and still needs some) cleanup

- There are a lot, and by that i mean a LOT of variants of this device, varying mainly by baseband and storage size

- In Pavel's kernel_kanuti repo you can find some work on caf's 4.9, 4.4, and 3.18 kernels, the higher the version the less things will work, but hey, there is hope

- The device can probably be mainlined since 8936/8939 is a 8916-class soc

- If camera ever gets fixed, it will need Sony's proprietary blobs to run

Installation

Fastboot and TWRP zips work fine.
