[UNOFFICIAL] CarbonROM for the Z5 Compact [Suzuran]

From the CarbonROM team
"CarbonROM is an aftermarket firmware based on the Android Open Source Project. We are dedicated to fast, stable, and feature-filled roms, honesty and communication with our users, and openness with our code. We like frequent builds, with the very latest and greatest hardware support and fixes. We strive to not only provide you with the best rom we can build, but also to give back to the Android community and our fellow developers.

Please feel free to look, build, and use the code at CarbonROM's GitHub... and at CarbonROM Gerrit.

Code:
#include 
/*
* 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

* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

1) Search. Search, search, search. Yes, you. I don't care how unique or important your question is, it's very likely someone has adressed it already. Especially if you're even close to new at this.
2) Read the FAQ, which can be found on the carbonrom website. Carbon FAQ
3) Ask a question in your device forum. Someone will no doubt try to help you. Warning: this help may come in the form of telling you it's a dumb question that has been asked before. See step 1 - such are the perils of asking questions when you haven't done the research yourself. Android is about helping yourself.
4) Ask a question on the official IRC channel. Connect to #teamcarbon on irc.freenode.net or click here. You'll find several other Carbon fans and usually one or more devs as well. Please be polite.

HUGE Shoutout to @myself5 for all the help in porting this rom!
If you enjoy this rom why not Donate to support future releases

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! :)

nzzane, great to see another ROM for our Z5c :good:
Any specific suzuran bugs? Would this classify as a daily driver?

Are there some Screenshots of the ROM?

The Website shows an Error at clicking Screenshots.

What's working and what's not working? Can someone post it??

Just fixing some small things up since the first release (which had some small bugs that stopped it installing)
It is a port based off the Z5 version, fingerprint works but can be buggy at times (don't quote me on this) camera can also be buggy but is usable

More to come as I make sure it is fit for release :)

Can I dowload this build now, or wait?

Is this one using the stock kernel and vendor blobs just as with the 7.x.x roms myself5 has done on the z5 thread?
How difficult would it be to integrate them? Apparently it really boosts camera performance and quality as well as calling volume...
Thanks, mate

Once this gets released and is in working order I will be working with myself5 (more like asking him how to do it ;) ) to get the stock blobs into this rom
He and the CarbonROM team are already trying to impliment stock blobs so it shouldn't be too hard :)

IF ANYONE wants to help out https://paste.myself5.de/hGO2cED9w4.rb this is the point at which the rom starts to no longer boot

Couldn't we just copy the z5 device tree from lineage repo and use the suzuran diffconfig script which is already included there?

    As well as some bluetooth issues

    -Camera service runs better
    -Phone app smoother
    -Fingerprint unlock speed is better and more reliable

    Next update I will be adding it so that the fingerprint only activates after screen is on so that pocket useage is minimal :p + less battery

    Update from me: over the weekend I will be compiling new builds of lineage and carbon (there will still be no WiFi sadly), mainly just a bug fix update, nothing big. I am working alongside some great developers and hoping to get WiFi working soon (For those that don't know, it's the kernel that isn't working, as it doesn't have the suzuran drivers, sadly they are different drivers from most other Xperia's)
