Your warranty is now void.

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it!
YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

FlokoROM v2.0 is based on crDroid, but we have some differences like:
  • OmniSwitch included

  • Lockscreen customization
  • Switch "Recents" style
  • HW button configurations
  • Expanded desktop

  2. (First time) Extact boot.img from ROM zip
  3. (First time) Reboot to bootloader

First of all, thank you koron and 1ndwurm for this beautiful ROM.I hope this ROM will stay updated. It is amazing, but I already discovered few problems on sgp611.
1. There is no sound in games (youtube works fine)
2. Fells a little bit slower, than oreo. Already disabled all animations but I didn't helped a lot.

Do you need dmesg or logcat for these problems?

I noticed first problem. This is sound mixer (Ultra Low Latency) problem. I will check this weekend.
(Probably kernel miss merge)

Second problem is... :crying:


-----

Audio fixed at 20190511 version . Could you try new version?

Thank you for fast fix. In this new version, sound is working fine in games but latency is very big.

To make this tab faster I also tried to change governors, hotplugs and i/o schedulers but neither of them made a lot of difference.

Do you have pixel-style gesture navigation enabled?

On my tablet there is significant difference in the smootheness between button navigation and gestures. With buttons enabled the tablet is on par, if not a bit smoother than Koron's AICP rom. Gesture navigation - constant lagging.
 
TWRP 3.3.0-0

New TWRP is ready. Now our TWRP can pie decrypt.

Ver. 3.3.0-0 is built with newer kernel.
It's not compatible with old oreo ROM. FAT (VFAT/exFAT) driver is changed to SDFAT.

If you use this new TWRP with oreo ROM, tablet will crash because of FAT driver kernel panic.
Please be careful.

Download link is HERE.

Z3 series in Pie (and Oreo), Wi-Fi region code is probablity firmware related.
And unfortunately firmware is proprietary and not maintained for now...

Hello!
In trying to install this firmware i've failed.
Device: SGP621
I tryied it with locked and unlocked bootloader - it's all the same.
After flashing kernel and TWRP via fastboot device doesn't start and I don't know how to boot into new recovery.
Perhaps something wrong with the kernel? Or what?

You should get into recovery if you first power off the device, and then hold power and vol down (or maybe up?) until you see the Sony logo, release power button and hold vol button until you see the twrp logo.

I know that, but when I turning device on, Sony logo doesn't appear. When I push power button it became one short vibro and nothing happening.

If I trying to install other custom, it works, but here it doesn't.

    I'm sorry, but can someone send me a link to a download of the Floko 2.0 rom...i'm unable to find any download links.

    Nooo! Don't stop this ROM, koron393!
    You are my life line to keep my Z3 Tab Compact going. For most of your followers, almost everything works very well. Pre-Floko, AICP one worked very well too.
    To me it looks like recent complaints regarding installation issues are coming from people not following the process carefully enough, or not read the whole forums before taking the plunge.
    Please reconsider, and continue. Please.
