Before install the ROM I wipe almost all partitions. (excpet the sd card)

And after the install & reboot, my phone has only 8Go free disk internal space.

While checking left space in option, it says System : 20Go, which seems to be a lot....

Any idea on that ?

No. Install stock and test...

Thanks for the reply @Berni-0815 . That seems like a lot of work, especially since my phone is encrypted and IIRC the latest TWRP doesn't yet support it! So I suppose I'm stuck wiping, reinstalling, and setting up everything again if I want to test that way.

I wonder, is there anything else at all that I should be trying before I go to all that trouble? Thanks again for your thoughts.

Thanks for the data @mbgheban. I'm not completely convinced it's a hardware failure yet. For me, it definitely coincided with LineageOS installation--that doesn't mean the LOS installation caused it, but it is suggestive. If it is a hardware failure, I suppose I'm out of luck.

If it is software, I wonder: is there a way to install original camera software / firmware / drivers / crypto keys without building my own LineageOS?
I had exactly the same problem. With the installation of Los I started to have the first camera issues. Firstly, it was just bad quality, then green stripes, then drop outs, now nothing at all.
In the process, i had done a complete revert to stock just for clarity. Nothing changed. The camera was gone for good...
I did some reading and it appears the back cameras of the earlier days have issues and are to be exchanged in case of any problems, no questions asked.
However, it also occurred to me that the constant flashing of different (beta) ROMs had its role in this play. Maybe some bad driver was just giving the camera too much juice for a while?

Anyway, once i return from my travels, i will have to get a replacement camera. Good thing is, they're pretty cheap ;) and tutorials how to do it are easy enough to follow.

Update on my button press vibration problems:
It's a hardware issue, my phone is dying. If you have the same problem of the press vibration disappearing randomly, the motor or whatever is connecting it is broken.

Had the same issue. Before flashing LOS you need to boot your phone to the stock rom and wait till it asks your for pin code.

Gah, okay...I don't want to have to open it up because I'm sure it won't be waterproof after that, but if that's the only fix then I will

I have been running los on z5 compact earlier.
I am currently on stock, but i would like to try the new versions.
But after initial boot up the lineage os freezes.
This is what i have done:
flashing stock .154 using flashtool.
Installed twrp using adb fastboot commands.
Boot into twrp, wiped data,system, dalvik/cahce, cache.
Installed 20180304 and open gapps pico.
The phone boots fine, but freezes after 30 second.
Any help would be much appreciated

edit: i just tried without flashing gapps, phone freezes and the screen goes black, only the status bar is visible.

Edit: problem is gone when i remove my sd card. somehow my sd card is corrupt...

Calling troubles with LineageOS

Hello,

Running the LineageOS with MicroG build.

Aside from rear camera death, I've noticed a few problems:

  • Calls take 2-3 tries to actually go through
  • I can't receive calls at all--they all go to voicemail
  • The phone doesn't seem to be provisioned for VoLTE even though it has the capability; nothing in the settings menu, *#*#4636#*#* shows not provisioned / greyed out, reprovisioning does nothing

Any of you smart people out there have a thought as to what could be causing this?

MicroG is hackery in and of itself so I'd suggest a full wipe and testing without MicroG and with(out) GApps. If the issue persists it's a LOS issue (very unlikely), if not then it's almost sure to be from MicroG. In that case you can also write in the MicroG thread for double chance of answers.

I've had some experience with it and from what I can see - it works - but only sometimes... It can break for no reason. Hence why I just use the pico package GApps. It's very difficult to have a full-featured Google-less device.

Of course, you could always take logs and try to see what happens there and prob post them here.

Thanks! Yeah, it's all hackery at some level---not like we're getting thorough code reviews. I'm not sure how MicroG would be breaking something that doesn't have to do with google services, but I guess it's possible. I will post in the MicroG thread.

My own version has VoLTE...
Thanks for letting me know @Berni-0815 !

My phone is currently encrypted, and TWRP on Suzuran doesn't (yet) support encryption so I can't wipe the relevant caches and stuff. I've been dirty-flashing (without dalvik or cache wipes too!) new builds of LineageOS w/ MicroG and that has been (seemingly) working fine. Berni--what do you think my chances are making a move to your build w/Pico or similar? Must do a full wipe?

Thanks again!

There is no "must". Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Even when dirty updating my version sometimes a clean install is the only way that works... (Happens to me twice)
I don't know what will happen if you dirty flash my version over your existing and encrypted system.

There's two things here - the dirty flashing and encryption. Berni is right, clean flash is the surest way to have a (mostly) bugless installation. If you dirty flash you accept that some issues may/will arise that can't be "repaired" per se without a clean install.

There other thing is, well, encryption support has been a b****h for this device until now. It forces you into dirty flashing and is generally a thing that sits between you and your files, so that's another thing that can possibly go wrong... I am looking into it but it will take time with how things are going rn :)

In a nutshell, even stock(-based) roms sometimes need a good clean flashing, it's just how things are with big OS-es. PCs are the same with Linux and Windows, sometimes a reinstall is all you need.

    Additional Information: This is the FIRST ever released Z5 Compact custom AOSP ROM that is using the Stock kernel and blobs. What this means? Not much, exept for the stock like camera of cause, if that is something you care about ;)


    Now stop reading this post. Seriously. You are wasting your time. FLASH THIS AND TAKE PICTURES!

    HUGE THANKS; to all the lineage and kitakami devs who have been working on this, and continue to work hard on this to get you (and me) the best rom that they can! :)
    NOTE:This uses stock kernel and blobs - meaning NO RECOVERY. Please know how to use "fastboot boot boot.img" if you get stuck anywhere

    NOTICE:
    It has been really fun porting and Lineage and Carbonrom top the Z5C, and it has been amazing to see you guys (The community) try it out for yourselves and make your own builds. Due to my Z5C being broke I have passed it on to a recycling company - meaning I can no longer test or update builds. Please do feel free to link your own builds in the comments (As long as they do not breach the rules of course ;) )
    Thanks for the support this year - and I want to thank those who are keeping their own builds up to date! :)

    I love how https://github.com/olefb/android_kernel_sony_msm8994/commit/39fe2aaf4701a1ea81812aeaa524d2271b6d33ef

    Is literally doing nothing, because all the makefile code to actually compile the driver is commented out ;P

    So I think all that was needed was the proper bcmdhd config.

    Nice job though :)

    Hah, yeah, I haven't had time to test if it works without that whole commit. Check @zacharias.maladroit's comment here, though: https://github.com/zachariasmaladro...mmit/4ae82dfd11047aeab84dffea3deb80a4b3b0cba1

    Hoping it's fine to post a build here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B629ORx1POtQRVZXRHVYMVB0RlU

    Also included the latest changes from Gerrit that fix fingerprint and should fix Bluetooth calling. Be grateful to the people who have been maintaining these LineageOS device trees (just mentioning a few here: Olivier K., Nickolay S., Giulio C., Balázs T., Vladimir M., Evgeny P., Chirayu D., Christian O. (Myself5 here), Rohit G.). They don't get enough credit from us users!
