Hey guys, let me introduce the full list of all working ROMs for the Sony Xperia Z5. Each ROM's section will have its basic information, instruction, features and EXCLUSIVE zMARK™ score, a benchmark base on ROM's features, battery life, performance, customization and stability, carefully ranked by my teams. In this list, there are 5 sections, equivalent to 5 types of ROMs for the Z5, including:
  • AOSP Nougat
  • Stock Nougat
  • AOSP Marshmallow
  • Stock Marshmallow
  • Stock Lolipop

INFO
I've seen some of threads in the Z5 XDA forum with the same purpose as mine but most of these threads are outdated and quite difficult to read, especially for Junior Members and "Noobs" so I create one.

Here some updates about issues (all tested on E6683 Dual SIM):

CarbonROM | cr-5.1 | @Myself5
ISSUES: Video Recording can't handle more than 28 seconds.

1.) [FIXED] With recent builds I am able to record more than 28 seconds (in 4k)
2.) 4k Video Recording and 23MP photos are only possible with the stock camera. (According to Myself5 this is a Sony issue)
2.) All videos are recorded without sound. This is the same for all video recording also in snapchat and whatsapp.
3.) When you are in call the volume can not be changed. You see the volume slider go up and down, but the volume does not change.
4.) FM-Radio does not work. No sound and no autotune.

LineageOS | 7.1.2 | @Myself5
ISSUES: All Camera related issues have been fixed!

1.) 4k Video Recording and 23MP photos are only possible with the stock camera. (According to Myself5 this is a Sony issue)
2.) Music Streaming to car-stereo (bluetooth handsfree) is buggy. Audio output often stops. (Music streaming to Bluetooth speaker is okay)
3.) Autotune in FM-Radio does not work. Manual searching for stations works but is a pain...

Great Great idea to make that kind of topic !
I just "updated" mine from stock rooted Marshmallow to the stock based Rom eXistenZ. I'm really satisfied until now, but if i could find a Rom under Nougat which is at least, as much efficient and improved as this one, i'd pretty love to update to 7.0/7.1 =)
Looking forward for news here !!
