Just wanted to report that I installed OmniROM 8 (10 Dec. version) on my Z3 Dual and everything I need (2 SIMs, WLAN-Hotspot, ...) seems to work well so far. Thanks.

2018-01-01 release

New release added to the OP.
It should not require a full wipe but as the version changed for 8.1 it could be required in some case.
* Lot of code cleaning,
* some fixes about audio, & gps.
* New issue about 4G connection: you need to connect to a wifi network before it became available (if you do not have nearly trusted wifi, turning on AP works too. )
* Dual SIM swap problem not tested on this release but should still be present. Logs welcomed :) (actual workaround is full wipe)

So as usual, take a backup before installing ;)

Happy new year :cowboy:

Thanks goes to @Diewi , @mcgi5sr2 , @rcstar6696 , @derfelot , @devil188 , @davze , @Dobsgw !

This is incredible, i wanted to get a new smartphone for 08/2018, because I gave up hope. Now you come with Project Treble, I kiss you for the feet, my headphone jack is broken for a long time. But now I'm not buying a new smartphone because I use my headphones with dongle via Bluetooth. THANK YOU

See #2 it is a known issue. You need to connect then disconnect to a wifi network then mobile data will work.

well i found why my games a re crashing. Temps raising like crazy here. I suspect some bugs in the thermal settings. Guess the Kernel is just still trash. If Shadowelite would help on the kernel things would go so easy....

Does "full treble device" mean that we have Project Treble support now?

To avoid any confusion early enough: The shinanos are NOT treble-enabled devices with the latest release! Treble requires more than just the definition of hardware services. It also requires a separate vendor partition and that ALL device-specific files are placed in this partition (the latter is WIP). We use a trick to simulate the vendor partition: "/vendor" is symlinked to "/system/vendor". Hence all treble files also reside within the "/system" partition.

If and when this would be done cannot be said atm, as changing the partition is RISKY and probably breaks the table detection of the bootloader that is passed to the kernel. Hence, repartitioning might require hard-coding the partition table might be a workaround, but it is a no-go for a release as it would break easily. As you see, there are several stones in this path. And those are just thought experiments up to now, so the real issues would come in additionally...

Hence, we MIGHT experiment with it one day (when we have time (TM)), but do not hope for it. Realistically, we will be busy enough to get our devices to run correctly with recent android releases.

Cya!

    How to install

    %= Only needed at first flash
    1. % Update ROM to .291 with emma (or Flashtools)
    2. % When install is done go into fastboot mode (plug usb + vol down key = blue led)
    3. % Flash TWRP / If you already are in .291 and have a working TWRP (modded rom/kernel/adv kernel) you can use the flashable zips below instead.
    4. Shutdown the device
    5. Unplug the usb cable
    6. Maintain volume down & power until you see twrp splash screen
    7. % Wipe system, cache and data (factory-reset)
    8. Install rom zip (+
      % gapps if you need it, any size is ok
      %Install root from @phhusson )​
    9. Reboot

    Rolling back to stock
    Flash stock rom with emma or flashtool
    If you flash with flashtool remember to check wipe apps_log and userdata partitions to get a clean install
    Stock compatible TWRP

    Sources
    Manifest file.
    Everything else is omnirom.
    Contribute gerrit.
    This rom is not pure OmniRom, but close to, for convenience purpose. Roms are build from this script and can contain some lightweight modifications (like mkshrc, or TWRP app disabling, @nailyk certificate authority included, etc...) but will never have heavy changes like replacing an app by another, etc...​

    OTA Coming.
    There is a bug with TWRP booting.
    Ensure you are on the latest bootloader (search this thread or see https://forum.xda-developers.com/z3/general/guide-xperia-z-boot-process-explained-t3359510 )

    Partial Changelog
    • Lot of audio changes,
    • Video record fixed (some problems remain, like format, green bar, etc),
    • Some not-fully-tested power patches.

    Many thanks to @Diewi (he is totally working alone on shinano as I have no time) and the whole OmniRom team.
    Thanks to @mickybart, @AdrianDC, @rcstar6696, @demon000, @Diewi and everyone else who worked on the video record fixes.

    As usual take a backup before flashing (full /system wipe required here),
    Post useful reports (see #3) and enjoy their hard work and countless hours spent on our devices.

    How to post
    • Reports without logs or step to reproduce are useless (read contribute).
    • You are welcome to post your review: what is working, not working, etc... Check into know issues before.
    • You are welcome to report any typo, error, etc...
    Try to keep thread clean as a dev reference. Thanks in advance.​

    How to report problems
    cat1-1-.jpg
    To report problem, please provide logs.
    It is always better to include reference to the Installed version. This guide is really detailed and explained everything about bug reports.
    If you have any doubts, take the most logs. There is never enough logs ;)

    How to get logs
    • If your device is not booting at all, we need information about how you flash and all the handling you do, the display status, light status, and if available a dump of /proc/last_kmesg*
    • If you have a non working peripheral (non-working radio/wifi/etc...) please provide a full logcat and full dmesg, example:
      Code:
      adb reboot
      adb wait-for-device
      adb shell dmesg > dmesg.log
      adb logcat -d > logcat.log
    • If you have a non working app please provide a partial logcat:
      Code:
      adb reboot
      adb wait-for-device
      adb logcat -c
      <launch your app>
      adb logcat -d > logcat.log
    • On this rom, there is a script who detect device at install time and provide the right functions for single or dual sim. If you have modem problems (like data not working or no signal) please also provide the /tmp/recovery.log.:
      If you have ADB access to your device in twrp just use
      Code:
      adb pull /tmp/recovery.log .
      after flashing omnirom.
      If you do not have ADB access use the 'copy to SD' button in the advanced tab, then transfer it the way you like.
    • then upload your files to a service like pastebin.com / paste.omnirom.org

    How to contribute
    • Code is like hieroglyphs for me:
    No worries you can contribute anyway! Install the rom, do tests, read failure logs, look at internet for potential fix/similar users experience, is the biggest part of debugging. Then collect all of this and write your results here.
    • Code is like hieroglyphs for me and logs are worst:
    No problem, collects logs the right way if you can, explain how you encounter the problem: detailed step to reproduce could be enough: explain exactly how you encounter the error/problem, it should produce each time someone repeat your steps. Then we will be able to fix it.
