Hi, I'm really sorry to bother with an issue that's probably not related to the ROM (though this defo doesn't happen on stock) I found that the SD card always says it's missing on boot. This is a real problem because it trips up Spotify every reboot, so it doesn't detect it and tries to redownload my playlists every time. I tried moving Spotify itself to the card and it didn't work. I read in other places online that this has been a problem forever across Lineage and it can't be solved. Is it true? I can't really use the phone if that's the case cause 16GB isn't enough for everything+spotify :( Thanks for the awesome work on supporting this device.

Edit : further research indicates this is just lineage so yeah.... I'm running 14.1 now, without this issue. It's because SD card is not mounting before first unlock (only with lock method) and I can't run a phone without a lock obviously :) Would be great to see this fixed at some point.

Hello NeoArian,
Seems that LineageOS team start to roll out OFFICIAL 17.1 releases for some devices.
Do you still plan to build LOS 17.1 for Z3C? and do you think it will be possible to update OFFICIAL 16 to OFFICIAL 17.1 without losing data?

Many thanks in advance!

Yes I plan to but currently my sister is using my z3c because her phone broke. Now she destroyed the touch screen partially already, we will see what remains from the phone when I get it back.
Migration from official 16.0 to official 17.1 will be possible.

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.

Hi,

I just update to the last build using the last TWRP (no Wipe cache, dalvik cache, data and system).

The system is booting and I have to enter the pattern to unlock the phone.
After entering the pattern, the screen turn black like the phone will be unlocked and unfortunately the phone comes back to the screen where I have to swipe and enter the pattern.
No error that tells me the patter is wrong (and I know it's not wrong !)...

Did someone had this problem ??

Hi all,

sad to report it seems that Google Maps is not keeping a lock on my position when navigating. It finds my position (slowly), but then any further movement is not recognised until restarting Maps.

Anyone else here using Google Maps navigation successfully in a car on their Z3C with this Rom? If so, which GApps package are you using? What are your GPS settings? (I currently am using Pico GApps and I have precise GPS with wifi and BT scanning switched on, and Maps has permission to access location always).

I am experiencing two remaining issues at this point in time (using latest 17.1 from this thread):

- GPS won't keep a lock. Tried many different settings after installing GApps Pico, but I just can't seem to get it to work reliably.
- Echo during calls (traditional calls). Telegram / Skype / Whatsapp calls are all fine. But just calling someone the old-fashioned way is not usable currently.

It seems that the Z5C guys are also experiencing a call-echo problem, which they may have found a fix for, but I am not sure that has any relevance for Z3C development?

I've set maximum speaker volume to a higher value.
I've increased microphone gain.
I've changed the microfone gain to avoid echo in phone calls.

I flashed Los17 after wiping all partitions.

I experienced strange bug - when someone was calling, phone was ringing but nothing appeared... And second - after encryption system apps crashed and system became unusable

Wiped and Flashed once again and "calls issue" appeared

Decided to flash stock.

I used flashtool and xperifirm and finally got bootloop.

I'd be very grateful if someone help me.
Here is my thread (created it, to not spam here): https://forum.xda-developers.com/z3-compact/help/how-to-to-stock-black-rear-camera-t4045215

Edit:

I got really fast help and rescued device using Emma. Now I'll test if everything is ok with calls (but don't want to check once again encryption).

Edit2:
Calls works properly :good: thank you for that great rom!

So you can make and receive calls (via normal means, not whatsapp or telegram or skype etc) and they sound just right for you? No echo or any other issues? Without a headset / microphone?

I'd be interested to know about this, as I can't seem to get that sorted 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!

    Hi there!

    I have built an update for z3c.
    This build includes latest lineageos sources and a few device side fixes. It would be cool if you can specifically test GPS, audio and the time after a reboot.
    At all this build should be release quality. Please report back if there are any further issues.
    You can download it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ephedraceae/files/z3c/lineage-17.1/
    If nothing goes wrong i plan to go official 17.1 within the next days.

    Happy flashing!
