Just bought one as a back up for around USD218 in Hong Kong. Immediately ran all the updates (to Oreo) and security patches, and then a factory reset before setting up the phone.
For this price it is a good device especially it's got a finger print sensor ON THE POWER BUTTON.
The screen is a bit dull for my liking but for this price it's acceptable.

Download it on pc It is hard reset so you will loose all data on your mobile storage and it will completely eliminate all bugs. This often happens not only with sony mobiles mainly because you were turned on some services and etc and during update something didnt get right..
After Oreo update my phone hangs a lot. After 10 seconds I get an error " process cant be completed" Model G3416 /Build number 48.1.A.2.21
Iam seeing that other regions got the latest software version, but ce1 still stuck at nougat, but I think it will get the update very soon. Sony is amazing never tought that mtk processor can be optimized so good because oreo version is way more faster.. the reason I bought this phone because I think its the last generation of "boxy" design but more importantly very handy power button with fast finger print reader...amazing. My friend has XA2 Ultra and its just amazing too but he says my device is more comfy tu use, the weight of both devices is not a standart, but this is quality... Sony devices are always completely done in all aspects, audio, cameras, battery care and so on.. True love..
oorvashe, 07 Jun 2018Can you please share some information on RU ROM. Any link will be helpful. Hi just install xperifirm in pc and look for xa1 plus line, mine is G3412 model and there you have some countries software involved including ru, ce1, greece and etc.. I reccomend to pick RU / KZ/ or Greece they are almost the same but I think greece have spotify when other is not, double press on your choice and download. Second step is to download flash tool. Also look for a fsc script file for XA1 plus (all versions) xda devs forum its required when flashing the phone, you will get ant auto message that flash tool found fsc file before flash..
Ftf file tutorial http://www.xperiablog.net/2014/08/16/create-your-own-ftf-firmware-files-using-xperifirm-and-flashtool-guide/
When you get to the step when you press tools>create>fileset decrypt or create, you choose create this tutorial was with old soft versions which has filesets so then you choose decrypt option but XA1 plus only create..
This is tutorial how to flash your ftf via flashtool
, just make sure in sin field (wipe) you tick all boxes for xa1 plus there will be 3 or 4 boxes just cant remember so your phone will go from the scratch
Fsc file from xda
I need some help please my phone can not sense the touch,can not draw the pattern.
