The Sony Xperia XZ3 now runs with iodéOS 2.0 (Android 11)!

You can also directly order a refurbished XZ3 with iodéOS preinstalled.


So do all the cameras/video, bluetooth, speakers, wifi, LTE and wireless charging work OK on Android 11? I may buy one of these to install iode’ as I live in USA and you don’t ship here.

Good evening everyone,
Bonsoir tout le monde,

Cher Monsieur Antoine,

I haven’t been on the forum for a long time. I am pleased to see the developments and a new release iodéOS 2.0 (Android 11) on a newly added device, the Sony Xperia XZ3.

Am I right in assuming that, as with the Xperia XZ2, only the Xperia XZ3 1-slot (single SIM) model H8416 for Country or Region Global, International) will be supported by iodèOS?

Accordingly, the dual-SIM models XZ3 (H9436) and XZ3 (H9493) are not supported by iodèOS?

By the way: LineageOS 18,1 supports all three models H8416, H9436, H9493.


all three models H8416-H9436-H9493 are supported by iodéOS

iodéOS 2.0 (Android 11) installation on XZ3 ‘akatsuki’


  1. fastboot flash boot_a | boot_b boot.img
  2. Unplug the phone
  3. press POWER+VOLUME DOWN until reboot in recovery
  4. From recovery => Factory reset => Format Data
  5. From recovery => Apply update => Apply from ADB => ADB Sideload iodé.zip

Hello iodèTeam,

Recovery here means Standard ‘Android Recovery’, right?

except ...

since no Custom Recovery is available (except this one as well as this one).

Sorry, new users can only put 2 links in a post.

By the way: The above quoted rule annotation is not helpful!

the ‘boot.img’ links to the recovery. Once you flash it you can reboot to the recovery by pressing altogether Power+Volume Down.
I didn’t know there was such a rule, i changed it to 4 links :slight_smile:

Hi Antoine,

thank you, and - now we both know a little bit more. It’s fun to keep learning. :slight_smile:


iodéOS 2.0 (Android 11) on Sony Xperia XZ3 ‘akatsuki’

Sony’s stock Android 10 has not been an issue for me for a while. I like to switch from ’ The LineageOS Project’ LineageOS 18.1 via ‘microG Project’ LineageOS-for-microG 18.1 to iodéOS 2.0 (Android 11). The changeover was short and painless by the way…

Rename boot-akatsuki.img to iode-2.0-20210625-akatsuki-recovery.img

I just flashed iodeOS 2.0 to a Sony Xperia XZ3 H9436. I am connected to the internet but when I go to system updates and manually check for updates the OS does not appear to be pointed to a server to check. I get a toaster saying “The update check failed. Please check your internet connection and try again later.” @Antoine does this seem right? Shouldn’t it veryify I am on the latest version?
