No logs, no detailed descriptions, no support. I've asked for someone to test the build on the DualSIM variant a few days ago. You were among those who answered but didn't provide any feedback. So i went ahead and released a version that is tested on the SingleSIM Variant and now there's 4 people complaining about DualSIM support?

less than 12 Hours of creating this thread I already regret touching Sony devices again...

Also, did you really have to quote all of the OP...?

It was 3 days ago and all you ask was how did it work regarding the dual sim, in your other thread, but with all do respect not to many are willing to or for that matter going to down grade to Android 8 , I guess that's the last version to test something that is a bit vague in detail.. so that alone pretty much kill your lack of feedback..
Now take a second and look at where most of your so called issues and questions are coming from ..our newer members due to many a lack of details on how to flash, which gapps to use ect.
which to be honest should be in the op but mainly their lack of experience and an allergic reaction to the search button..
Sony may have it's faults and nobody here twisted your are to release the rom but your lack of information is more than likely the reason for half ass answers and or problems.

Your post is an in depth explanation of what is wrong with the Sony community. The OP design is the exact same used on ALL CarbonROM XDA Threads, yet the Xperia XZ Premium and XZ1 community are the ONLY people complaining about it. Surely this is a me issue. Perfectly outlined by your assumption that the builds I released were Oreo. Heck, I even attached a picture of the XZ1 and XZP running those VERY builds I linked that said Android 9. I'm not obliged to do anything. I release those builds because it's a fun hobby. Constantly spoon feeding people because they refuse to do their research is not on that list.

There is no such thing as "which gapps to use". Ever. On any device. Go to any stupid GApps website and download the GApps that match YOUR taste. If you need advice on arm vs arm64 and which android version then you're wrong in this forum.

less than 24 hours into the thread creation and I consider closing it again. Thats gotta be a new high.

sorry man if i bothered you but i really dont know how to take logs

Check out https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-take-logs-in-android/.
Though, you could've found that with a Google search. First link when looking for "xda get logs".

Also can you check which device name is shown in Settings? G8341 or G8342?

Pictures.. where as there aren't any posted on the but the logo for the rom on the lab app.. I personally haven't look at the rom on other various devices but have glanced at it here, as you said and posted the format is the same simple copy and paste, no screenshots, no flashing instructions no mention of a bug list if there are any.. so maybe the format may need a tweak or two for us slow xz1 and xz premium folks..and if the lack of info in the op causes a few questions to be asked ..then feel to take you ball and go home..

Yah I believe lack of info cause some issues. Like if you came from lineage 16 dsds and have the dsds twrp you can't flash this rom. You need to flash the single sim xz1twrp in the lineage16 thread.

It's not only this one, but in my case I run a stock rom with existenz patch, with one twrp, then to flash beetle84 ( excuse the spelling) add on, I need the aroma trwp version , then to flash j4nn's kernel you need to flash the DS twrp.. but that's another story.. but the only.point I was trying to get across lack of info in the op , your going to get questions...

Screenshots can be found on our website on this thing called Gallery. Cool huh?

Theres no buglist because theres no need for any. Our official builds have to pass fairly strong criteria before going official and are tested on the devices before going official. I never announced or claimed the Dual SIM variant would be supported.

As for flash instructions I expect users to be capable enough to use Google and do their research. If they are unable to do that, they shouldn't bother messing with Custom ROMs to begin with.

Literally the first Google result for the query "flash Android ROM" is a detailed guide from XDA which would work just fine.

However, thanks for pointing out yet again how fitting your username is. Seeing you're not interested in using Carbon nor are using it right now I'd kindly ask you to refrain from further posts in this thread.

Thanks.

Here's a random thought. What if a zip that doesn't install on the Dual SIM TWRP with an error saying its for the Single SIM variant, is actually for the Single SIM variant?



My offer still stands. I'm willing to look into Dual SIM support of someone with a Dual SIM device volunteers testing. Until then and from now on I'm either going to ignore each and every complaint about the Dual SIM support or value it with some kind of sarcastic reply depending on how I feel.

I spent countless hours working on these devices in my own free time using my own Money to pay for PC Hardware and other expenses. Yet, instead of some kind of appreciation, even if its just the simplest "thank you" post, I get people like @lilbrat bitching at me for not spoon-feeding people with results from Google queries or worse. Too sad the Sony community hasn't changed in the last two years.

Thankfully, due to multiple reasons, the XZ1 and XZP were my last Sony phones ever, with the community being one of the biggest factors. Shame how the old Sony community turned into this.

I knew I should've left the phones in that dusty corner on my desk instead of putting any time into it.

    Is there version for G8342? Or this one will work but without dual sim?

    The next weekly build will work on on both the G8341 and the G8342, including Dual SIM support.
    5
    @Myself5 Thanks again for the hard work! Please ignore the trolls and delight us with a thread about CR 8.0, Sony modding community (the good part of us, those that make logs and complain about nothing) is anxious to see it ;D (if im allowed, i can create if for you, but idk if this is uh...right).

    q.e.d. as below.

    The author himself is silent and there are no instructions here in the topic on installing and supporting 2 sim. And to sit on a discord and wait a week to answer 1 question, this one is already tin. I have not seen this, only in this topic.

    Poor you not getting support in a timeframe you expect to be fair. Please absolutely distract that from the wage you're apparently paying me given you're already acting like you're my boss. Maybe you also should consider using other ROMs. Maybe those labled explicitly for a DualSIM device. I checked Discord, the only person talking about the XZ1 DualSIM is Ruslan (STALKER__RU)#1988. You brought up DualSIM issues twice. You have yet to answer my response from the 23rd of May which, btw, was within a few hours.

    Every person reporting DualSIM issues has been asked to report logs or provide additional information that had been requested. Everyone failed to do so. I can't fix what I don't know.

    TL;DR: Logs or GTFO.

    The latest builds released yesterday contain a fix for the SDCard permission issues. That should mean all the problems with apps like RealRacing 3 or Gardenscapes should be fixed now.

    Credits to @derf elot for spending countless hours on finding the fix.

    Hello
    how i can get my device model if G8342 or G8341? all i can see in model info in settings or in hidden menu is SOV36.
    could someone help please?

    SOV36 is a special japanese version of the XZ1, so neither G8342 nor G8341. No idea if the builds work on that, but feel free to try and report.
