AICP
Android Ice Cold Project
for Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (scorpion/scorpion_windy) Unofficial

AICP is known by everyone as the "Ice Cold Project" that started on a Desire HD years ago (2012) and since then evolved into a mature ROM with the BEST community you can find!!!

Until Lollipop, the Rom has always been based on AOKP. Unfortunately, since AOKP stopped development (but made a comeback later), we changed our base to CM when it comes to hardware, drivers and some features.
With the re-brand of CM to LineageOS (LOS) we are now actually LOS based with some tweaks from AOSP.

If there are any bugs, either we will sort them out or the LOS team will if it concerns their code base. This rom isn't LOS supported, so no need to report errors/bugs to them!!


Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Hard & a lot.

FAQ:
Before using the ROM:
Q. Can I have an ETA for the next build?
A. Yes, just look in the OP to see, if your device is build on a nightly or weekly schedule.

Q. Does this ROM support custom kernels?
A. No. You can still use them (as long as they are LOS based), but discussion should go in the thread of the respective kernel. We don't offer support for bugs you might encounter using them!

Q. Why doesn't this ROM support Xposed?
A. Xposed is a hack that is geared towards AOSP, custom ROM's modify the framework a lot, so Xposed can cause a ton of issues on custom ROM's. Now it might work for you, however it is not to be discussed in this thread, and you should refrain from posting bug reports.

Q. Alright, but I still want to flash Xposed, so which version do I need to install?
A. Xposed is not yet available for Oreo.

Flashing the ROM:
Q. What do I need to know before flashing?
A. Check the install instructions in the first post...

Q. Can the builds be dirty flashed over each other?
A. Yes, however make a nandroid first as there is a chance of getting a bootloop or encountering bugs. Also bugs may only be reported on a clean flash.

Q. How do I dirty flash builds?
A. Wipe the System, Cache and ART/Dalvik cache. Flash the ROM, GApps (only needed if you wipe the system), your preferred root solution and reboot. Or you might just use the OTA app to preform that task for you.

Q. How do I flash kernel builds?
A1. If it's a .img file, boot into TWRP and go to the install page in TWRP, in the bottom right corner select "install image", select the desired kernel, then select "boot", then swipe to flash, then go back to the install screen and install your root method again, if you don't want to loose root and reboot.
A2. If it's a flashable ZIP, you can flash it together with a ROM update or separately. Go to the install page in TWRP, choose the kernel zip (or add it to the flash queue right after the ROM zip). Then add your root method to the queue if you don't want to loose root. Now swipe to flash, and then reboot.

Using the ROM:
Q. How do I enable software buttons?
A. Until the navbar enabler is added, add the line qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 to the build.prop and then reboot, set it to 1 to disable it if you want. You can use an App like Kernel Audiutor for that.

Q. I installed a bad theme and now I'm getting a bootloop, how do I fix it?
A. In TWRP, flash the substratum rescue zip that's in the substratum folder on the internal storage.

Q. I keep losing root with Magisk, how do I fix it?
A. Check this out. If that doesn't work for you, ask for help in this thread, read or ask in the Magisk thread on XDA or just re-flash Magisk!

Q. I'm having issues with WhatsApp, how do I fix it?
A. Read this

Q. Do I need to provide a logcat if I'm reporting a bug?
A. If you want it to be fixed faster (or at all) then yes, you should definitely provide a logcat. (Note: Please just link the logcat from your GDrive, Dropbox, etc. and do not post the content here. Thanks.

Q. How do I get a logcat, what type should I get and more questions that can conveniently be answered by my pre-determined answer?
A1. Read this thoroughly. Also, here's a good app for getting logs: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tortel.syslog (Root needed).
A2. If you are already rooted, you can use the built-in feature to make a logcat and provide that. Just look into the root section in the AICP Extras menu.


instructions.png

The ROM should contain everything you need to enjoy Android Oreo. You don't need to install any Add-on's, simply download the latest ROM, GApps, flash it and go!
If you want the device to run the ROM "rooted", you can flash a root solution of your choice after the ROM Zipfile.

It is STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing and please avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup as this can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug.
If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience any strange behavior.
How to flash:
(Again: Don't do it if you don't know it!)

1. Download the ROM and GApps and transfer them to your device internal storage.
2. Boot to recovery (TWRP recommended).
3. Wipe System, Cache, Data and ART/Dalvik cache.
4. Flash ROM Zipfile.
5. Flash/Install GApps (optional, needed for e.g. Google Playstore to work).
6. Flash/Install the root solution of your choice (optional).
7. Reboot your device.
The ROM has GApps persistence in between dirty flashes, so you only have to flash them once!
The root solution should be flashed together with every OTA update (= ROM Update) as long as the instructions of your
root solution do not state something else (="persistence on dirty flashing") !



Currently Supported Root Solutions:

Magisk v14.0


KERNEL:
The kernel in this ROM follows LOS source with custom additions.

PREREQUISITE FOR OTA:
To be able to flash using the buildin OTA app, TWRP recovery is needed.
You can still use the LOS recovery and OTA app, but you will need to download the zip file and flash it manually from within your recovery. The Zipfile gets saved in the "aicp_ota" folder on your internal storage.
Please be sure that you are on the latest TWRP recovery. Keep im ind that this could also be an unofficial version!

Nice job Koron393, all is working fine on the scorpion_windy except for NFC but that's expected. It's exactly the same on the other Nougat rom for scorpion_windy, NFC is flaky/unusable on first boot then vanishes altogether on next boot. I'm an Fdroid user but I installed opengapps pico and the google play app launched without issue.

Add logcat.

NFC works fine my SGP621 and friend (tester)'s SGP612.
 
I've tried AOSP 7.0, 7.1 and CM14.1, but none of them can go right with my 64GB SD card.:crying:
So that this and you are the last hope for my old SGP 611.
THX anyway:good:
May the force be with you!

I think 3.10 kernel has bug in UHS class high speed sd card definitions.
Shutdown -> Remove SD card -> Boot -> Fully Boots Up -> Insert SD card
and please send me these logs

  • dmesg
  • logcat

and this

Code:
$ su
# cat /sys/kernel/debug/mmc2/ios

Thanks.

I don't understand why my and friend's work fine but yours does not works.
I will try update configs for NFC and update zip this weekend.

I thought it was maybe because I don't use gapps but it's the same story with opengapps installed. It is exactly the same with lowtraxx's Android 7.1 Nougat AOSP rom, version 1 and 2 were fine, whatever happened in his version 3 may apply to your rom.

Hi koron393, I just got my tablet's dmesg.log Is it any use to you in this NFC puzzle?

Amazing! This is realy amazing!
I've had a little hope but not much, and I've almost given up the solution for SD card issue with N (AOSP, CM for SGP6xx).
And I installed this ROM to get error logs last night....but, it works; works without any issue with my damned Sony UHS Speed Class 1 64GB SD card!
I can't believe it, 'cause AICP might be based on CM 14.1 for SGP6xx which is faulty with this SD.
(I'm pretty sure that my SD itself has no problem, 'cause it works fine with stock MM based SGP611 and Zenfone2 with CM14.1.
And I also tried New 64GB SD.)

Anyway, ROM gets laggy sometime, but have no major issue so far.:good:
Great work koron393, you're the man dude!
THX so much and please keep up good work.:eek:

Regards;

Hi koron393, a NFC fix from lowtraxx for his CM14 rom works also for me with your AICP rom. It's only enough of a fix to allow me to turnoff NFC but it will do me. It took an older version of NFC to at least halfway solve the problem.

AICP n7.1 on SGP611

Logcat and dmesg.log

I did a blank state install, nothing added to rom except superuser and catlog. Partial fix I mentioned in prior message is not installed either.

map apps with AICP7.1 on sgp611

This is my very first post, though I have been a long time viewer of the forum.
And thanks for the great rom for the aging z3tc, koron.
This AICP 7.1 works great on my sgp611, especially with my 128GB ext SD card. Like michael-hamada said, this rom is the only one recognizes ext sd card properly without a hitch.
However, I found some of the maps/navigation apps can not access the ext sd card. At least Sygic, OSMAND+, Maps.Me all fail to access. They are all offline map apps. CM14.1 running on sgp311 (pollux-windy) has no problem at all. It can read/write ext sd card with these apps. I wonder what makes the difference. Anyone any idea? Once I can clear this hurdle this rom will be definitely a daily driver!
Thanks again for the great work!

Well, I've never used those apps, so this is just a hunch, but have you tried to give the permission to the app?
In my case, I couldn't download any file with Opera browser unless I gave it the permission to access my storage.
Maybe as you already knew, go to Settings -> Apps -> "The App" -> Permissions -> Storage; vice versa...

This ROM runs fast and pretty stable.
I'm impressed ?
Thank you for your effort!

Thanks for the tip, Hamada-san. That was the first thing I have done when I noticed the problem. Installation makes allowed storage permission as default. But when tried to select the storage path, it simply refuses the access. I think I should reinstall ACIP with internal sd wipe and see the difference if any.

Dude, I'm so sorry that I can't help you after all.
I've also tried Maps and Sygic but I couldn't find any clue...hmm...

I updated to 27/11 version with open GApps pico 30/11.
I flashed them after wiped except data.
But I got FCs with Youtube, Keep, Maps and Opera.
Reinstalling fixed them but Opera wasn't fixed.
Hmmm...I once wondered new GApps did some tricks, but how about Opera?
Anyway I restored Opera and it's data with Titanium backup, and it seems to be fine.
Overall 27/11 is little more snappy than 23/11 I think.
Thanks a lot, koron393!
