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.

To be honest, it's not my phone, it's my dad's phone. He uses it as a daily driver. I need to ask him but I saw him talking with someone without any additional stuff.


I'll try to describe my previous problem precisely:

I came straight from LOS16 wiping all internal partitions.

Calls pop-up screen wasn't appearing when someone called.

So using flashtool I flashed stock firmware branded for my country (R4D) got bootloop and repair it using Emma. There was R12D firmware it flashed. After that did first config and flashed recovery I wiped mentioned in first post partitions and flashed LOS17. Everything is ok.

Edit: so I asked him and he said there is no echo.

@NeoArian

Unfortunately I think I found bugs:

There is no cellular data connection. Tested in different places.

Of course I checked APN, restored them, create new. Reboot. Disconnected from vpn.

Sometimes when I try to run ussd code I got attached information.

It seems that it is software problem, cause on LOS16 It worked.

The problem is I haven't been trying to connect mobile data on stock, so cannot say anything about it. Maybe branding problem? For may country it was R4D Emma flashed R12D. Actually there were some more R options not only 12. May I try another one?

Second bug is really strange - in tutanota mail app writing emails is actually impossible - phone goes down on every keyboard type (I use Xperia keyboard with Sony Device Dummy). It happens only in this app :confused:

Shall I send logs?

I really appreciate your hard work and just want to help it become better and better :) Hope you'll go through your exams without any problems. Thank you one more time!

Edit: unfortunately I had to move to carbon...
There were too many bugs. I flashed stock and check if in Emmas R12D mobile data works and yes, it worked. So flashed carbon.

On my device Bugs after stock flashed were:
-No mobile data connection
-lost time after reboot until sync with time server
-really slow experience in tutanota mail app
-sometimes Sms and calls lost

I'm really sorry that I haven't created logcat that could be useful...

Good evening,
I'm uploading a new build to https://sourceforge.net/projects/ephedraceae/files/z3c/lineage-17.1/ (should be available within 5 minutes, sourceforge needs to mirror it)
Since it has been a while i don't have a changelog but there has been many changes in lineage and also some device related stuff like fixed some selinux denials about timekeep so that the time will not reset after reboots.
The problem with RIL (calls, mobile data) from the last build has been resolved.
This build is using the stock audio HAL.
Happy flashing!

That's great! Why did you revert back to sourceforge from osdn? Wasn't it super slow before?

Yes, you can.

I also had some problems with osdn recently but figured out that it has been a problem with scp and big files, the upload is now fine.
I have switched back to sourceforge because most users said that the downloads from sourceforge are better.

Oh, so it now explains why your telegram channel was spammy recently.

Big thanks for this great rom ? - awesome work.
Did a clean install and everything works fine!

... but one little question: Is it possible to get hires playback working on wired headphones? I'm not able to get Poweramp or any other app to play in 96/24 - stuck everytime in 48/16. Is this generally a problem on Lineage or missing frameworks, drivers etc?!?

Thank you so much for this great ROM!

Everything is working fine, except Bluetooth (seems like an A2DP problem).

Playing songs from my mobile works without any problems.
But my Car is not displaying song information (title,artist,etc).
The controlling of the car audio works well (play,pause,next,etc.)
Even the song length and the time is displaying correctly while playing a song.

Anyone else with those problems?

Thanks,
Michael

@NeoArian, are you planning on further maintaining this ROM? Are there any chances that world will see 17.1 official for z3c?
Cheers

Edit1: I forgot to add that the date and time is broken inside twrp for A10.

Yeah, I do. However time is rare currently, and will be at least until end of July. Official 17.1 is pretty much ready to go but I probably have to and want to fix touch in lineagerecovery.

Hello,
WiFi 5Ghz on mode AC doesn't work, right?
and MAC randomization is not implemented in LineageOS?

MAC randomization work. ALWAYS. The current build force-enables it EVERY TIME (the off-switch is not implemented). This is very annoying due my network blocking "new" devices. After every reboot I have to unblock my phone. Terrible. And no, 5GHz is not working in AP mode correctly...

    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!

    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!
