Tambourine dancing with rooted Sony device in the morning

Disclaimer: Maybe this problem is solved, maybe not. I’m watching it and try to keep it updated if something follows. The solution is in the end of this post and my tambourine dancing with all this crap is after this disclaimer.

About my phone
