「また、Xperia XZ3以前のモデルはAndroid 11へのアップデートはなし(まあ予想通りですが)ということになります。」

If I'm getting stuck in Android 10, I presume that also means no more security upgrades. Hmmmmmmm.

@quad @xerz lol just a way to say "hey you have no more security updates on the XZ3"

@espectalll @xerz Pretty sure that Japanese says "Prior to the XZ3". In other words XZ2 and before.

But I plan to dump my XZ3 anyways once Linux phones become semi-usable. Already tempted to switch to sailfish, but it lacking Android notification support capable of handling NewPipe's background player is one of the main things keeping me away atm

@quad @xerz I mean, on context and using multiple translators, it seems it excludes the XZ3 from upgrades. You might consider using (Treble/custom) LineageOS if you have to :blobcatthink:

@espectalll @xerz I haven't even upgraded to Android 10.

I've got Android 9. Because I put an AOSP ROM on it. When Android 10 was released you can't just flash the ROM because Android firmware bullshit. So you flash the stock Android 9 ROM and update it to 10 to get the firmware, then flash your custom Android 10 ROM.

Problem is Sony seem to have stopped providing downloads for my region's XZ3 ROM. Software like XperiFirm will only give me the Android 10 ROM for my region. I tried flashing other region's Android 9 ROMs for the XZ3 that I found, but none of those seem to get me the Android 10 update.

So until I somehow figure out how to get a Nordic Android 9 stock ROM for my XZ3 I'm stuck here.
@espectalll @xerz Just classic Android flashing bullshit for any model less popular than a Pixel or Xiaomi where your options of getting both custom and stock ROMs tend to suck.

Yet another reason I play to use the Pinephone once I can.
