OTA and TWRP recovery

Over the Air Updates
My upload script automatically pushed OTA updates to my GitHub.
If you want to make them visible through the Updater you can flash the attached magisk module LineageOS-17.1_z3c-OTA-v1.zip or add the line
Code:
lineage.updater.uri=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ArianK16a/OTA/lineage-17.1/z3c.json
manually to your build.prop. You should use the recommended TWRP so that the updates flash fine.

TWRP recovery

TWRP 3.3.1 for our z3c with Android 10!
The TWRP for Android 10 is attached to this post.
Source is available at: https://github.com/z3c-pie/twrp_device_sony_z3c/tree/android-10.0

Changelog for twrp-3.3.1-1-z3c-20191212-sar.img
  • Improved System as root support, /system is a symlink to /system_root/system now

Changelog for twrp-3.3.1-1-A10.0-z3c.img
  • Added Bootlogo, booting from offline state will display the original sony logo now instead of nothing
  • Fixed fastboot boot
  • Updated kernel cmdline from 23.5.A.1.291

How to install this build:
  • Reboot to fastboot by holding volume up while connecting your device to your computer
  • Open a terminal and move to the directory with TWRP in it
  • Rename the downloaded image to twrp.img
  • Type
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
  • Boot into TWRP while the device is powered off press the power and volume down button

Feel free to ask questions or give feedback about TWRP here .

Have a nice day!

Additional information about the recovery on this device:
First of all we should make the basics clear: On our Z3 Compact we have got a bootloader update which can boot a recovery from powered off state by pressing volume down and the power button. Because we haven't ever had this updated bootloader and not all sony devices received the update, there have been some intelligent people who brought a special init binary which can handle recovery boots during a normal boot. This means when using advanced reboot from the ROM or pressing a volume key while the sony logo appears at boot. https://github.com/LineageOS/android_device_sony_common/commits/lineage-16.0

To make this work there is this method to extract the ramdisk: https://github.com/LineageOS/androi...eage-16.0/extract_ramdisk/extract_ramdisk.cpp which uses zlib to decompress it. So far so good, zlib can decompress the default compression for recovery ramdisk which is gzip. However LZMA is more effective to reduce the size so we took it's advantage: https://github.com/omnirom/android_...mmit/885b01223a460d3f2500155ea415bdc8573679bc in order to fit recoverys compiled from recent environments (android-9.0 in my case) into our small FOTAKernel partition.

According to this change the init_sony can't handle the recovery boot anymore because it can't decompress the recovery's ramdisk so nailyk and Diewi (as far as i know) added support to decompress LZMA compressed ramdisk's with this chain: https://github.com/sonyxperiadev/device-sony-common-init/pull/20/commits
However these commits have never been merged into the LineageOS/android_device_sony_common nor the sonyxperiadev/device-sony-common-init. Since your ROM, CarbonROM, is using a fork of LineageOS/android_device_sony_common is missing these commits the recovery boot fails with a kernel panic, like this: https://del.dog/egawososux.htm

So you can either use a recovery which doesn't compress the ramdisk with LZMA (for example the one from here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/z3-compact/development/recovery-twrp-3-2-3-0-aries-t3837192 or ask your ROM developer to pick the according commits into the sony_common tree/use my fork of LineageOS's one https://github.com/z3c-pie/android_...mits/fa85dfcc07f42d73f9a1abf1f4c82d8bf0486a93 which would enable you to use recent TWRP builds with a LZMA compressed ramdisk.

I hope i presented it clearly and in the right way,
Have a nice day!

EDIT: Minimized patch for LZMA is available here: https://review.lineageos.org/c/LineageOS/android_device_sony_common/+/252923

The new build is up!
Get it from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ep...age-17.0-20191002-UNOFFICIAL-z3c.zip/download
Make sure to use the new TWRP from Post #2 because Android 10 introduces System-as-Root which can lead to weird behaviour in the old TWRP.
Note that there are not all features from LineageOS 16.0 ported over yet and there can be unexpected, yet unlisted bugs.

MY personal hardware support list can be found here: https://gist.github.com/ArianK16a/1e46c463a5c910efb322d9cf0e16c3c0 but as always, i can't guarantee you anything!

Happy flashing!

I don't understand what you are doing after you flashed stock. Can you also format data within my twrp? I have recognised that the /data partition size has been set wrong in most older TWRP's.
I will try, thx :>

but there are no opengapps for 10,
what about this? will be good?

There are GApps: https://sourceforge.net/projects/opengapps/files/arm/beta/20190928/

Format is not wipe. Make sure that twrp asks you to confirm by typing yes.

Camera and Bluetooth are fine.
Flashing the only gapps for Android 10 I found made the navbar buttons not to work.
I guess we should wait for better gapps build.
Great anyway, thanks

I've experienced the same issue after installing gapps - only back button works. Gesture navigation is working fine.

Other bugs I've noticed:
-battery icon style cannot be changed
-launching camera app with hardware button doesn't work
-system accent color cannot be changed (there is only one option listed)

You must read 1st to 3rd post.
LOS17 is just getting started.

Note that there are not all features from LineageOS 16.0 ported over yet and there can be unexpected
