the short characters is new .... hahaha, it has been when selecting the English language or when recovering the nandroid without wipe.
I will do a format before trying again.

I know it was not necessary but, install clean, all wipes and the result is the same.
the bluetooth switch is dark, I have limited the permissions of the application and the result is the same as all the permits granted or denied.:(

I have recovered the boot.img of lineageos 14.1 and I have flashed it on AEX, the result is a nice animation of endless AEX.
Personally AEX is the rom development that I have used in all my devices for its smoothness and custom settings.
Do not stop trying, Suzuran is a great device that is being forgotten by all developers. I'm waiting for Mokee to work on 8.1 for Z5 compact, but I have no hope that it will happen.

Why did you flash the lineage 14.1 boot.img? my AEX build is based on that one.

I'm trying to fix the Bluetooth issue right now. Is there any more errors?

I just dropped the z5 compact ... I know you do not care, but I say goodbye to the forum :( is the third z3-z5 that bursts the screen with a slight fall.

I don't know how many who are using my ROM. But I would say that this ROM in performance is like the official lineage build but with out Bluetooth and latest security patch( I'm working on it right now I'm on 2018-08-05 but I am not going to realise it untill its 2019-02-05).

Lineage is often better than stock ROM in performance. But I can't live without bluetooth. Gonna wait for the next build, then...

Does it have voltage control? Snap 810 needs it.
What about temps?

Thanks for your work, with proper development the Z5c can live well. Better then most new low/mid devices.

The ROM is based on Lineage OS kernel and it keeps the phone in the same temperature as if you would use lineage(much cooler then stock).

Thx, me my self I own a OnePlus 6. But sometimes I miss my Z5C(I use it as a backup phone). It's a really good phone. And it's really hard to find something that good in that form factor.

I don't know when Bluetooth would be fixed beacuse I don't know how to fix it.

That's great, Snap 810 were really bad with temps. Unfotunately I use BT daily with speaker and car stereo. Then I'm gonna wait.
I have a Mi 5s with broken screen, so bought the Z5 Compact. Once a fix my Xaomi gonna keep the Z5c as backup and play around.

Whoe!!! OP6 from a Z5c is a great upgrade in hardware and size. I can't have big phones, doesn't work for me. The limit is 150x70 mm, always try bigger ones from friends with no success.

Have you considered a XZ1 Compact or XZ2 Compact at the time you bought the OP6? I like both of them...

Back then when I bought my OP6 did I not think about the Sony phones. Somehow did they go under my radar. So I did not do much research about the Sony phones. But I think they are pretty good, I hear alot of good reviews.

But actually do I not see so much difference in the OP6 and Z5C performance. I know that the OP6 is much faster on paper. But in regular use googling, watching yt, scrolling through apps and even light gaming are there almost no difference. The only downsides I can see is the ram and battery life (and Android version, I really would like to have 9.0 on it but I know that it's hard to build).

I hear you, Sony phones have gone under the radar for many people. It's hard to get back on the radar, now with new devices in 2019 it seems Sony is gonna make it and I really hope so. Xperia 1 is very beautiful. Pity it does not have a Compact device of it's own...

Here in Brazil Sony phones are hard to find, pretty expensive with no discounts. Hard to buy in these conditions.

    Changelog:
    -No major changes, I've only upstreamed some patches from lineage os sources.
    Rom file can be found as usual

    I've also managed to get bluetooth working on this rom:), but it's in BETA stage. To make bluetooth work I had to change many files in the android source and I am using the STOCK AOSP sony device trees slightly modified. The stock sony kernel is also used. This rom is UNTESTED but I know that bluetooth does work with speakers. But unfortunately does the internal speakers on the phone not work. I appreciate further reports like if calling/messaging is working. (sound will not work if you don't use a bluetooth device)
    The bluetooth working rom file can be found in "Beta (bt)" folder in both mega and Gdrive
