@NeoArian are you aware of the sound issues with latest build :confused: Cheers

Yes, i'm aware of it.
I have had much stuff to do, hence i couldn't reply earlier.
tl;dr: There was an issue with the build server, which somehow synced an old state of the vendor/sony repository and hence the audio HAL was completely missing. The broken build will be deleted as soon as possible and we are working on a solution.
Sorry for the inconvenience! :(

@NeoArian thank you for your feedback. For my information, do you think there will be a new build today or tomorrow? I hesitate to flash 0610 from scratch so I could decide to wait for or not.

No, the build won't be rebuilt. The next build will be there 7 days after the latest build.
Best would be to go with the older build for now.
However, if I find some time for it, I will provide a hotfix zip for the users who already updated to the new build.
Greeting, Arian.

Quick update: I have created a flashable hotfix!
It is attached to this post.
This can be used on Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact.
It is only tested in lineagerecovery so far, TWRP mounts system at a different point. I didn't confirm that also works.

EDIT:// I have added hotfix3, it fixes the file path for one lib. In the first version I accidentally derped this.
You don't have to flash the first two hotfixes for hotfix3 to work

I can confirm that with installed hotfixes #1 - #3 via TWRP sound came back on my device (calls, music, headset, bluetooth). Big thank to NeoArian for his immeadiate help.

Thank you @NeoArian.

1) Is the encryption working correctly?

2) The delay time when you lock the screen, works incorrectly. The time you have not set before locking the screen is immediately locked after you turn off the screen. Could you fix this bug? I would like to set the time before auto-locking.

Mine has the same issue. Everything works fine except the rear camera (It is still useful as daily driver for my use cases).

Is it known if there are different hardware variants of the camera built into the Z3C?

I bought my Z3C from Aliexpress as refurbished. Seems more that it is new-old-stock. Came with original box, accessories and on all of them where still the protection plastic foils like it was never touched. Also first Android 4.4 was installed and I followed the official installation guide (well written, I found everything I needed to know in there, thx!) to flash the latest stock and after that the Lineage OS installation incl. bootloader unlock.


After a fresh boot I can use the flashlight. When I use FreeDcam I can use the front camera and afterwards the flashlight still works. When I use the Android Camera app sometime the app crashes, sometimes it remains black but afterwards always the flashlight also stops working (Button is greyed out. Hardware disappears? Driver crash?).

What kind of logs would be helpful for you to dig into this?

I also bought my Z3 Compact from AliExpress and was having the same issue until I restored the stock 23.5.A.1.291 firmware with the official flashing tool Emma (instead of Flashtool as the installation guide suggests) then did a clean flash back to LOS 17.1 afterwards.

Audio again isn't working in the 1027 update. At least hotfix3 from some posts above can still repair it. The calendar widget is missing as well.

2 annoying but manageable issues found

Hello NeoArian,

I have used your LOS 17 build for a while now on my z3c and it has been a treat and I could not thank you enough already for bringing android 10 to our precious (small formfactor) devices, however I have 2 annoying issues.

The touchscreen bottom and upper part of the screen are not responsive unless I am in the in the initial set-up screen, the next and back button work responsively and they are at the exact same place as where the navigation buttons are placed, it seems to be triggered when the navigation bar comes up (after the intial android set-up screen) I have this on video. I am using the simulate screen cutout option in the developer menu as a workaround atm, but maybe you could look into this?

The second issue I have encountered is with Bluetooth. When trying to use the sixaxis controller app.
The app can establish a bluetooth network on a rooted version of the .291 os However, it does not work on your rom.
I have made a adb logcat but since I'm a junior member here on XDA I'm not able to post with an attachment.

If you have any questions I am happy to help/answer and try to fix these issues.

is there time for you to look into these issues, If not I totally understand that there is more to life than these kind of minor bugs.

Greatz,

ShadowCOD

The broken build server got in again :/
It will be fixed again with the next build, sorry for the inconvenience.

lineage-17.1-20201027 no sound :crying:
You can flash the hotfix I have provided here a few posts ago for now. You can find it here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/z3...cial-lineageos-17-1-z3c-t4160347/post83713969

I would normally say that the first issue you mentioned is caused by damaged digitizer (common point of failture on z3c, I was also affected by this). After some time it stops recognizing touches in some areas of the screen, even if the phone was never dropped and glass on display isn't cracked. You say that it is sometimes working, sometimes not, so given that, it is possible that your digitizer is slowly dying.

Speaking of sixaxsis controller app. If I am not mistaken it wasn't updated for ages and it isn't even available for download from play store. The last android version that is supported by the app is IIRC android 6 or 7. You can easly find people complaining about it online, from back the android 7/8 era.

2020-10-20 - same sound issue for me.

I'm sticking to 2020-10-06 since it's the most stable.

I do have a slight inconvenience whereas after a reboot, the SD card takes some time to activate the apps on it. It generally requires a reinsertion, even thought the storage applet reads it properly and all.

Thank you for your continued effort.

I can confirm encryption issue same as here
I set password before encrypting phone. After encrypting, during boot I'm asked for password, after I enter the password I stuck at LOS loading screen. I hope donating will help solve this problem :)
Thank you!

A common issue with encryption would be that you formatted data with an old recovery. Have you definitely used lineage recovery or the latest TWRP which can be found in the main post in this thread? If not, please use one of these recommended recoveries and format data again in order to get encryption working.

I used both Recovery and Lineage with same version 20201103. But now I tried as you suggested: with TWRP from main post in this thread. Exactly same result LOS loading screen.
This time I tried with pin instead of password.
I'm doing something wrong or there is some issue indeed.

    Good Evening!

    It's the time again, you might have already noticed that lineage 18.1 is official for some devices now. We, the sony shinano maintainers, were not sleeping and have also prepared our device for 18.1. I have uploaded a test build here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ep...18.1/lineage-18.1-20210406-UNOFFICIAL-z3c.zip
    I would appreciate some testing/feedback on this build. There shouldn't be major issues on the test build, from my own testing it should be on-par with 17.1.
    I am optimistic that we can also achieve an official release of 18.1 for the z3c.

    All source codes can be found on the lineageos github in lineage-18.1 branches + additional patches for sony msm8974 are up on gerrit: https://review.lineageos.org/q/status:open+-is:wip

    Happy flashing!

    Thanks to everyone for the really detailed testing :) I really appreciate it.
    Since yesterday (still on 18.1), I have two kernel wakelocks preventing deep sleep:
    - msm_serial_hs_dma
    - BTLowPower

    I used BBS with the adb shell settings put global hidden_api_policy 1 fix to check the wakelocks.
    Regarding the BTLowPower wakelock, @J_C_D has fixed that on lineage-17.1 recently and at this time the lineage-18.1 branch was already forked. I will make sure to include the fix for lineage-18.1 with the next update.

    It's been a while since last time I did test a new Android version on this smartphone.
    First of all, I'd like to thank you all maintainers for your effort and to congratulate for the great work done with this first build of lineage 18.1.
    I did some basic testing (don't expect anything too accurate, since this is not my main device for a while) which I'll resume below:
    • Booting was fine and time is quite comparable with previous lineage versions
    • I succesfully installed a test build of OpenGapps (micro configuration of 20210130), which seems to work pretty well
    • account setup and sync works
    • WiFi working at both 2.4/5 GHz
    • Bluetooth working fine, I had no problems connecting to my bluetooth earbuds and listen to some music
    • NearbySharing is working like a charm and quite fast too
    • online charging is working at full speed (about 1800 mA with a quickcharge 3.0 wall charger)
    • MTP working
    • OTG works for both input devices (mouse, keyboard, etc..) or mass storage
    • camera is fully working (taking pictures with both front/rear cameras, taking videos, flash)
    • phone calls are working, but I believe that microphones are swapped, using the upper one as main, resulting in a low volume during calls
    • mobile data is stuck at EDGE for me, I couldn't get it to use LTE instead
    • audio is fine
    • video playback also seems to be fine (tested on youtube at 1080p)
    • chromecast works, in fact I did cast screen and youtube to a Google Nest Hub without any problem
    • the OS is overall responsive and snappy, even with gapps installed
    • screen rotation, accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, etc.. all fine
    • double tap to wake and other classic gestures are fine
    • I couldn't test hotspot since, as I said, I was stuck at 2G connection which was quite unresponsive
    • unfortunately I cannot test GPS or NFC neither
    I hope I did not forget something important.
    I'm going to keep this installed since it's really stable, so feel free to ask me for some other testing and I'll for sure try to do that as soon as I have some spare time :)

    Thank you NeoArian and all other developers!
    Your LineageOS 17.1 build really revived this small phone!
    My previous experiences with installing unofficial builds were not as great as this one.
    The only things I miss compared to stock Android 6 are the camera button full press to open the camera app (which by the way starts slower than on stock Android 6), the secondary mic noise suppression (which wasn't working anymore on mine anyway) and the service tests opened with the *#*#SERVICE#*#* code.

    About this new LineageOS 18.1 (I used MindTheGapps-11.0.0-arm-20210412_124103), I didn't notice any problem compared to 17.1.
    In fact, using Migrate to restore all apps and settings, I almost thought the update didn't work since it booted like usual.

    For the other users, in addition to Migrate, I of course reinstalled Magisk, which doesn't work natively (even with the workaround of installing 20.4 first) on this new 18.1 build. The boot_patch.sh file has to be modified, I've attached a version of Magisk 22.1 with that file already modified (works at least on Z3C). NeoArian: is there any way to modify the builds so that they use init instead of init.real?

    I did some basic testing
    Pretty extensive "basic testing"!

    • phone calls are working, but I believe that microphones are swapped, using the upper one as main, resulting in a low volume during calls
    • mobile data is stuck at EDGE for me, I couldn't get it to use LTE instead
    • double tap to wake and other classic gestures are fine
    • unfortunately I cannot test GPS or NFC neither
    - Phone calls were fine on 17.1, haven't checked yet on 18.1. UPDATE: still fine on 18.1
    - LTE works here (at least band 1). I'll see if I can connect to different bands.
    I don't know if it helps, but here's what modemcaps says:

    - Double tap to wake didn't work for me on stock Android 6 (at least when on deep sleep). It seems to work now which is an improvement.
    - GPS works fine.

    I'm using it from now on, so I'll report any problem.

    First thank you NeoArian and all other developers involved for your great work! I also did some short tests and found nothing which was not working. I worked with OpenGapps test build of 20210130. I tested:

    - WLAN
    - Bluethooth
    - Mobil date
    - phone call
    - Camera/Video/flash light
    - Audio and video playback
    - normal usage like my los 17.1 daily driver

    I used some configuration like i did on my los 17.1 daily driver and it looks really good! Unfortunately I cannot test GPS as my test device had an hardware problem here.

    So really fine from my side here, only the test with Magisk to root the device didn't work. But this shouldn't be related to los 18.1. Hopefully Magisk will be functional sometimes later.

    Thanks again!

    Features
    Individuality
    Customization is paramount to productivity.
    That’s why LineageOS promises to push for user personalization and preference.
    Everyone is unique and your device should be too.
    Security
    Your data, your rules. With powerful tools such as Privacy Guard, you are in control of what your apps can do whenever you want.

    Longevity
    LineageOS extends the functionality and lifespan of mobile devices from more than 20 different manufacturers thanks to our open-source community of contributors from all around the world.

    Installation:
    If you are on stock OS, you need a custom recovery first. You can get the recommended recovery in the official installation instructions link below.
    If you are coming from stock or other ROMs, you need to make a factory reset.
    As always, make sure to backup before installing this ROM.

    More detailed instructions at:

    Hello @NeoArian , hello community. I'am very happy to see that the "BTLowPower" wakelock issue was fixed by @J_C_D and that it was merged into the android_kernel_sony_msm8974 repository last week. Thanks to all of you that spend your time supporting the Z3C and other older devices until now.
    5
    Yes, that's right.
    When Safe Start is turned on, the accelerometer does not work. Therefore, screen rotation, light sensor does not work.
    Thanks for the report. We were able to reproduce it and have fixed it. We will merge the fix within some days so that it will be fixed in the upcoming releases.
    Greetings, arian.

    GOOD NEWS EVERYBODY!!!
    I managed to finally fix the persistent "BTLowPower" wakelock
    which caused the CPU to no longer enter Deep Sleep state and thus resulted in high battery drain once Bluetooth had been enabled! 🍻

    UPDATE: I just found a much simpler solution that does the trick! The real culprit was a #ifdef in BT Power Management that was introduced by a commit in July 2019 and then has fallen into oblivion :ROFLMAO:.
    Fixed! -> Version 3.
    @tblr0ne , @L.Lmar : can you please also test this version?



    *** TESTERS NEEDED! ***

    Find attached the modified boot.img. USE AT OWN RISK!

    Installation:
    - reboot Z3C into Bootloader (Vol+)
    - flash new boot image over current LineageOS17.1 installation using fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot-BTLowPower-fix-3.img
    - reboot
    Code:
    fastboot reboot

    NOTE for Magisk users:

    After flashing the new boot image, it is required to re-install Magisk. Do this by immediately booting into TWRP after the new boot image is flashed.
    Also note that you need Magisk v20.4 for this! Later versions won't work.
    Anyway, you will be able to upgrade Magisk to up-to-date versions using Magisk Manager after the system has booted.

    @NeoArian when everything seems ok, I will create a merge request in LineageOS/android_kernel_sony_msm8974. Is this the correct place / way to go?
