I tried (foolish) experiment to upgrade the OEM partition binary blob to newer version "SW_binaries_for_Xperia_AOSP_N_MR1_3.10_v13_loire" . This wasn't a good idea: At startup the graphics system seems to crash and restart once, and the camera stopped working (shows black screen). Reflashing original/working SW binaries back to the OEM partition did not fix the issue.

On positive note I found that I got EMMA to recognize the phone and reflashed back to android... I had to press the volume down button while inserting the USB cable, and it comes up with green light... Normally to get to fastboot mode the volume up key needs to be pressed and it comes up with blue light.

I'm kind of back to square one now but the issues in this sailfish image are preventing it be be a daily driver. I'm waiting on a new image, or somehow get a hold onto the official sailfish image.

Off-topic (sort of) but things like that are exactly why I can't bring myself to use Windows in any capacity in my day-to-day. Those rare occassions (admittedly not very often at all) I absolutely require Windows, it feels foreign, and accomplishing basic tasks feels like a chore.

I don't even really do that anymore. I have a slick GPU passthrough setup, RX480 as host adapter and RX Vega 64 as the passthrough to a KVM windows 10 LTSB VM. Been able to max everything out without dual booting. Then there's Vulkan stuff, which is the future. I just finished playing Mad Max in full detail, natively, in Linux with the fully open-source AMD stack. No proprietary bits at all.

It's crazy!

Finally I managed to purchase the official Sailfish X image... Credit to Firefox and SetupVPN plugin...

Most things I have tried yet work in this but the Samba app (Windows share) still have a problem.

Also the windows flasher script (BAT) worked fine. Even the large userdata partition did flash fine. (The SW package includes its own fastboot.exe binary that maybe works better than what I used before?)
