Hello,

You're lucky ))) During initial settings my phone found my local 5ggz network, I tried to connect but it disappeared suddenly and from that moment the phone can't find any 5ggz access points. And I can connect only to 2,4ggz APs.
Returning to "aospextended rom" 5ggz wifi works well.

Everyone who has trouble with WiFi (5ghz).
I solved this problem with installation magisk mogule - "wifi bolding (Qualcomm) by simonsmh"
Now wifi works good as stock rom (sry for bad eng).
Just tested v1.11. Does not work...
"- Installation FAILED. Your device didn't support WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini."

Also reinstall "lineage-16.0-20191007-UNOFFICIAL-z3c.zip" without any Gapps and Magisk but with Wipe Data, Cash, System. No result. WiFi 5ghz does not work...

    I can't reproduce it, 5GHz is and always was working on my device. Same for hotspot.

    No problems with my local 5GHz WiFi network.
    Same. As long as I neither get logs or a way to reproduce I can't do anything on this anyway.

    I wonder whether the issue of not being able to connect to 5GHz WiFi hotspots might be associated with the D5803 variant or not? Mine is the D5833 model, and I don't face that problem. Anyone could either confirm or reject such scenario?

    I doubt this. I think that it is related to the country where the z3c is used. I see that CarbonROM applied this: https://github.com/CarbonROM/android_device_sony_z3c/commit/c3b51f51f8715c4214bd6ef3af35c8791336ac33

    Since I am in Germany anyway it didn't matter for me so I didn't pick this. Can someone with the problem please try to apply the change on his device manually? The file is available in /system/vendor/firmware/bcmdhd.cal

    It work but just with open SSID network. If wifi 5ghz network have Hide SSID, phone does not see net (of course, network was added before).

    Yes, our shinano platform device has 5GHz Wi-Fi problem. Some countrycode is wrong.
    It's broadcom firmware related maybe.

    But!

    "Unset ccode" or "Fix to US" in the framework are too bad method.
    We should look for other ways, like kernel CRDA etc.
    this is super method!!!

    I just want to state that the sound volume is good now (or at least with an effort can now be adjusted to be good). When I have a volume at the max while calling and then change it to minimum it will in fact be at minimal level, which doesn't make my ears blood. The problem steps in when i change to loud speaker mode, an then set the volume to the max. When i quit loudspeaker mode volume at minimal level is sooooooo loud, and can't be turned down. I have to set it to the max and only then i can start turning it down to minimum which make it quiet again. Sometimes I have to go back and forth from normal mode to loudspeaker mode adjusting volume levels in both to minimum, so at the end the normal mode is quiet.

    Wait what, I had some success yesterday evening with this, now the volume in the top speaker changes significant more but I didn't push the build yet XD
    I will upload it in a few hours (1-3 probably). Please test this build again :)
    Delayed to tomorrow, my upload speed went close to zero... Sorry :rolleyes:

    Coming from CarbonROM, I can't install the latest LOS16:
    - got twrp 3.2.3 installed, as I get remote dtb errors when using higher versions (3.3. etc)
    - able to install LOS16 from february or CR7.0

    twrp 3.2.3 gives me error 7 when trying to install latest. fastboot boot latest twrp doesn't work, flashing it and it's not working either (for the reasons explained in post 2 of this thread), but no path to upgrade is given.
    So what should I do to upgrade the twrp and move to newer versions? Do I have to install all LOS16 old versions until one of them solves the issue and I can install the new twrp? Should I flash a specific kernel (FOTA?) or something? Honestly I'm at a loss...

    Edit 1: added more info, clarified the above.

    Edit 2: wanted to dig the thread to find solutions. Here's what I tried (and failed):
    - edited install script from within total commander on the phone to remove error 7. successfully installed an april version that gave error 7.
    - flashed recommended TWRP to FOTA, using fastboot flash FOTAKernel A9_twrp.img (renamed the twrp obviously first). Recovery still doesn't work.

    I think I tried every idea I had in mind and I'm still stuck. What can I do?

    You should just flash my twrp-3.3.1-0.4 from post #2 as described there (fastboot flash recovery twrp.img). You just have to be in fastboot mode, it doesn't matter on which ROM you were previously. After you flashed it you can hold power and volume down button from powered off device to boot into twrp. If you can't flash it with fastboot somehow I would need the output from your Terminal if possible.
    Good luck!

      Good evening, i guess it's time to share an Android 10 build.

      It is uploading to: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ephedraceae/files/z3c/testing/

      currently bluetooth doesn't work.
      Huge thanks to @koron393 who updated the camera shim to Q sources that fast.

      I wouldn't recommend to use it yet if you actually use your phone, there could be some bugs but it's a great proof of concept for now :D

      Have fun tasting Android 10 on z3c!
      13
      Good evening everyone!

      So i have been doing this LineageOS 16 for Z3 Compact since the 5th of january and it's already more then the half of a year. I think it's time to say thank you to you all. Working on this device is so much fun (it repressed my Xiaomi Mi 6 in my spare time) and also the communication is working just great through XDA at this point. Thanks that you help with testing, contribute with fixing bugs or just listing them or even donating some money to me. We really have a community here i enjoy to work with :) I have spent too many nights while doing stuff here but i never regretted it or had the feeling it wasn't worth.
      I hope that we can continue this project in future and keep this five years old device alive as long as possible. This also motivates me to get a new screen for my 2nd device. I guess i will go with the one @StarGeneral shared.
      In the near future i will also sharea new twrp compiled within an android-9.0 environment as already mentioned here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=79892993&postcount=3
      Right now i am stuck on the decryption but i am pretty optimistic that we can get this work, apart from this it seems to work fine. If anyone wants to look at the minimal tree, here it is: https://github.com/z3c-pie/twrp_device_sony_z3c

      However i can tell that there won't be any updates within the next two weeks because i am going on holidays finally :)

      Have a nice time
      13
      Short update about Android 10/LineageOS 17 for Xperia Z3 Compact: Bluetooth and the camera after a reboot has been fixed. I will go through a checklist tomorrow and see about remaining problems, it seems pretty good already so I guess that I can share another build tomorrow.
      Good night!

      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
