[ROM][10] LineageOS 17.1 [ABANDONED]

Search This thread
Good news: As announced in the XZ2 thread, I've managed to port the stock camera (SemcCamera) - you can find it in the OP ("add-ons").
Hello Olivier,

Is there any chance you'll fix stock camera for 17.1? I see you have plans to fix it for LOS 18.1 but this ROM is officially abandoned. I would love to update to 18.1 but some of my health releated apps are not working properly on android 11.

Thanks for your work!

p.s. Also I see that 17.1 has a build from May. Does it mean that automatic official 17.1 updates will still be available for 17.1 (sec patches at least)?

    [ROM][10] LineageOS 17.1 [OFFICIAL]


    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    * 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.

    Should you ever face any issues, capture logs. I also need to know what build you're on (build number or at least a date).
    Hint: "It doesn't work" is not a bug report and posts like this will be ignored.

    • The Sony stock camera does not work at the moment.

    This ROM does not use the device trees/kernel from sonyxperiadev (aka SODP). The device tree was made from scratch, and the stock kernel (based off 52.1.A.x.y) has been used.

    Successful installation

    Thorough reading resulted in a successful installation.
    1. For XZ2 Compact Dual Sim (H8324) (H8314 single will work probably also)
    2. Used Rom 2020-05-25 by Olivier
    3. Used boot image from Olivier
    a. This has “Lineage Recovery” not “TWRP”.
    b. Functions better for A/B devices, less bricked devices expected
    4. Installed zips by adb sideload:
    a. https://opengapps.org arm64, android 10, nano
    b. SuperSu
    5. Download and install adb + fastboot (version from platform google, not the old 15 second installer)
    6. Download and install Sony XZ2 compact drivers for fastboot situation
    7. Enable USB debugging at phone
    8. Unlock bootloader
    9. To get into fastboot mode: Press + hold volume down when connect usb cable in phone (and pc)
    10. In Windows cmd:
    a. adb devices –> use at every use of adb to check connection with phone (winusb drivers needed)
    b. adb reboot bootloader
    c. fastboot devices –> use at every use of fastboot to check connection with phone (sony drivers needed)
    d. fastboot flash boot boot.img
    11. Installing LineageOS from recovery:
    a. If you are not in recovery, reboot into recovery:
    1. With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Power and choose Recovery Mode.
    b. Now tap Factory Reset, then Format data / factory reset and continue with the formatting process. This will remove encryption and delete all files stored in the internal storage, as well as format your cache partition (if you have one).
    c. Return to the main menu.
    d. Sideload the LineageOS .zip package:
    1. On the device, select “Apply Update”, then “Apply from ADB” to begin sideload.
    2. On the host machine, sideload the package using: adb sideload filename.zip
    (takes a while after counter stops at 47%...)
    3. (Optionally): If you want to install any additional add-ons, click Advanced, then Reboot to Recovery, then when your device reboots, click Apply Update, then Apply from ADB, then adb sideload filename.zip those packages in sequence.
    4. Note: If you want Google Apps on your device, you must follow this step before booting into LineageOS for the first time!
    12. Once you have installed everything successfully, click the back arrow in the top left of the screen, then “Reboot system now”.
    13. (Warning: Depending on which recovery you use, you may be prompted to install additional apps and services. We strongly advise you to opt out of installing these, as they may cause your device to bootloop, as well as attempt to access or corrupt your data.)

    The first official build is up, please check the OP.

    NOTE: Since the official builds are signed, you shouldn't upgrade from my unofficial builds -- you can either migrate to an official build using a script or do a clean install.
    I've uploaded a new build -- all critical SELinux denials should be addressed now.
