Thanks, log file is attached.

I will take a look ASAP.

Ok, used v4 for install too. Seems like hell broke loose without purpose(and with all necessary wipes).
I'll just try clean install tomorrow, without SuperSU install this time.

Very Strange Indeed...
Are you using a SGP611 or SGP621?
I did a normal upgrade from V3 through flashing boot, system -> reboot recovery -> gapps, Magisk V8, PHH Superuser.
I am using a SGP621 and sadly cannot test the SGP611 builds, because I do not have the device, but they should be okay.

SGP611 user here, I just did the -> reboot recovery -> opengapps, PHH Superuser. -> wipe caches and reboot no problem. Gapps worked fine, I just didn't log into google with it because I prefer fdroid. No errors expect NFC, which lowtraxx already is looking into. It could possibly be because I didn't upgrade from v3 to v4, because of NFC crashes I did full wipe & install for v4 instead.

Restricted user settings?

Just installed V4 rom on my 611. It has only been running for a couple of hours, but no problems so far. The only thing I'm missing is the 'restricted user' features while making user accounts. I'm not sure, but after some short googling I guess this is a feature which should be enabled in the ROM. Am I right? And if so, could this feature be added?

Had a quick look, but have found nothing out of the ordinary so far. Will keep investigating.

Will have a look. If it is easy to enable I will do so for the next version, if not, we'll see ;)

I'm complete n00b when it comes to Android builds etc, but the 'Implementing Device Administration' AOSP page seems like a good starting point. Since I'm a new user, I'm not allowed to post any links to it :)

As of Android 5.0, the multi-user feature is disabled by default. To enable it, device manufacturers must define a resource overlay that replaces the following values in frameworks/base/core/res/res/values/config.xml:

<!-- Maximum number of supported users -->
<integer name="config_multiuserMaximumUsers">1</integer>
<!-- Whether Multiuser UI should be shown -->
<bool name="config_enableMultiUserUI">false</bool>

One day after clean install.

I'm using SGP621 too.
After clean install Wi-Fi problems(5GHz, transfer speed stuck on 2.1MB) still here, split window started glitch in after some app installs, probably.
Good news, Firefox alright now!

So, on my way to logcat:
Tried 5GHz channels: 161,157,153,149,48,44,40,36. iPhone works fine, Sony can't find anything. How can I log this bug?
P.S. Tablet doesn't sleep at all. I'll post some info after root+gsam.

CyanogenMod 14.1 BETA is here

With the foundation I built over the last few weeks and a little help, I was able to build a working cm-14.1 for our device. Most (I think everything, but you can never be sure and it is a BETA after all) of the stuff that works on V4 here, works there as well. If you dare, give it a try and report back. SGP621 images are already here and I am using them ATM. SGP611 is building and will be available after I wake up again (in around 8 hours). So, here you go, have fun -> Link

Thanks for the ROM. I've been using it as a daily driver for a few days and not hit any major issues.

I have run into camera problems as mentioned in the OP. It will take pictures, but the quality is terrible. Looks like the auto-focus is also not working. Not a deal breaker for me, as I'm unlikely to use the camera.

Additionally, I also noticed some micro-stuttering/frame drops when scrolling. It's not a major issue and probably something that most people won't notice, but it is a little annoying. I did some research and it looks like this type of problem can be caused by the governor being slightly too aggressive. I'm not rooted, so have not been able to tweak the kernel to try out a different governor.

I was also hoping to be able to run Pokemon Go on the device (hence why I didn't root it), but unfortunately it will not run claiming compatibility problems as sometimes happens with non stock ROMs.

Bro, lowtraxx noughat solution in another topic.
He migrates from AOSP=>CM=> linage OS.
So if you interested in 7.1 on your z3 compact tablet with lastest Sony and security patches - use this topic:

    This ROM is no longer maintained. Sadly the last provided zip files got deleted by accident. If anyone can provide them, I will re-upload.

    Disclaimer: Flash at your own risk! Backup your data before flashing! I am not responsible for bricked devices, World War III or your exploding cats!
    Warning: The SGP611 images are not tested, but just built by me, as I do not own the device. But as the two devices are the same except for the 4G Modem, it should work. If not, please let me know.

    About:
    As my beloved SGP621 was just collecting dust, I decided to try porting Android 7.1 AOSP onto it.
    And voila, with a few tweaks here and there, it works (for the most part).

    What works:
    - Display
    - Sound
    - WiFi
    - 4G Data
    - Bluetooth
    - NFC (somewhat flakey, but much better with fixes in V4)
    - LED
    - Magnetic Cover Sleep/Wake
    - WideVine DRM
    - Double-Tap to wake

    What doesn't work:
    - FM Radio (working on it)
    - Camera (Taking Pictures works, but sometimes the camera is not able to connect. Taking a video crashes the mediaserver.)
    - You tell me

    I have used it for the last few weeks. Battery life near optimal now and I had no crashes up until now. If your battery depletes rapidly, please disable NFC and check if it betters things. Then comment here, so I can look into it.

    Keeping your data:
    If you come from an earlier version of this ROM it should suffice to only flash boot.img and system.img. Coming from Stock or another ROM you could try to not flash userdata and see if it would keep your data, but I think it will not work in most cases.

    Flashing:
    Flashing userdata it is like doing a wipe. So BACKUP your data! You have been warned!
    To flash it, you need to put your tablet into fastboot mode (VolUp + plugging in USB-Cable) and then flash the three image files from the zip file in the provided link like:
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot flash userdata userdata.img

    gapps and/or root:
    If you want Google Apps and/or root you need to download official twrp for scorpion windy (or inofficial for scorpion) from here and flash it to the FOTAKernel partition with the following command:
    Code:
    fastboot flash FOTAKernel twrp-3.0.2-0-scorpion_windy.img
    After that you can boot into recovery by hitting VolUp multiple times once the LED flashes purple until it turns orange.
    From there you are able to flash
    - gapps for Nougat 7.1 arm (nano confirmed working, others could be problematic)
    - Magisk-V8 and phh-SuperUser (confirmed working)

    Tips for better battery life:
    I installed Naptime to trigger deep doze as soon as the tablet goes to sleep. I also enabled zzmoove cpu gov and noop scheduler in the kernel options. Because of the high display brightness, I installed Lux Lite, to dim the screen if it is darker. This leads to me getting standby battery consumption of around 1.2% per hour (measured with GSam Battery Monitor) which is nearly the same amount I got with stock.

    Changelog:
    18.11.2016 - V4:
    - Integrated newest Android Patches from Sony and Google.
    - New binaries from qcom (camera, sensors, display, ...)
    - Custom kernel with additional fixes, FMRadio patches (not working yet) and zen I/O scheduler
    - Fixes and Enhancements here and there
    08.11.2016 - V3:
    - Integrated newest Android Version NDE63X from earlier today.
    - Integrated and enabled WideVine DRM, so that Google Play Movies is now working.
    - Custom kernel with additional zzmoove governer and adreno_idler patches to lengthen battery life
    - Fixes and Enhancements here and there
    04.11.2016 - V2:
    - switched the Camera subsystem to HAL1 after discussion with the sony camera guys
    - fixed most of the camera related crashes and hangs. Quality of the preview is poor, but pictures are okay.
    - Taking a Video crashes the mediaserver and yields no playable result as of now.
    - added build for SGP611, which is untested as I do not own the device. But it should work.
    02.11.2016 - V1:
    - Initial release: Everything except Camera is working. Camera uses HAL3.

    Thanks:
    - Sony, for providing awesome AOSP support on github

    Added build for SGP611, but the following Warning applies
    Warning: The SGP611 images are not tested, but just built by me, as I do not own the device. But as the two devices are the same except for the 4G Modem, it should work. If not, please let me know.
    Have fun testing ;)

    New V3 build is here.

    If you come from an earlier version of this ROM it should suffice to only flash boot.img and system.img. Afterwards you need to reflash Superuser as well as GApps again (There are new opengapps available for today!).

    Changelog:
    08.11.2016 - V3:
    - Integrated newest Android Version NDE63X from earlier today.
    - Integrated and enabled WideVine DRM, so that Google Play Movies is now working.

    Tried with many different samples from mplayerhq with many different codecs. In VLC with hardware and software decoding as well as with firefoxes internal playback. They all played back fine and without color distortion. Maybe your player app is not yet compatible with 7.1?

    my fault I only tried playing with the gallery. other apps work well and I forgot to mention that I've installed this rom on my SGP611. thanks!

    @lowtraxx

    Is this also for the WiFi only Z3 Tablet? (Scorpion Windy)

    Gesendet von meinem SM-G930F mit Tapatalk
    Well this is a surprise. Since I never used NFC and the Cameras with the tablet and always got rid of the corresponding apks in /system this would actually be a daily runner for me right now :D
    Sadly I only have a SGP611, so no love for me right now...

    Anyway, top notch work, keep it up!

    I've installed this rom on my SGP611 and it works well. Give it a try, everything is working fine :D
