Me too! 6.0.1 / 23.5.A.1.291
Hey Guys, dont know whats going on. I got my third z2 Tablet device (spg521), all Z2 & Z4 Tablets running on cm13, but
now adb allways "waiting for device" when i try to install boot.img
... z2 turned off, i press volume up, connected usb to pc ... but fastboot wont run but blue led is on (unlocked bootloader enabled).
Maybee the reason is that im on unrooted original firmware 6.0.1 / 23.5.A.1.291?

thx
Right click on my computer and device manager then device management and see if your PC detects your tablet in faat boot mode if it doesn't you will need to install the drivers for your device

Hey guys, is xposed working for Nougat? thx
there is no xposed Version for nougat

Is it possible to update from recovery? Flash is a must?

yes update via twrp


btw new build is up and fix some things and adds fm radio
Fm radio was added and works with out problems
the only thing is that bluetooth needs to be disabled before start fm

sony uses a combi fm and bluetooth chip amd this is the reason for disable bt for fm

Still charging issues

Charging the tablet is veeeery sloooow. It takes for ages to load it. It seems to be a bit better even when the tablet is powered on.

I can start playstore, enter my credentials and then the Playstore crashes and starts from beginning with entering my credentials :(

I read somewhere in this thread you need the full gapps

I hope you did clean flash, if no, please do, after that try again, otherwise test this DELTA gapps package, always works for me... gapps-711-base-20161125-1-signed.zip (yes, I'm currently running this ROM with DELTA gapps base (only playstore and some necessary files included) installed, no problems at all...)

No way

before updating the ROM all was running fine :(

Now the differential GAPPS make no difference

What the heck happened with the new ROM?
