This is an Unofficial builds for Xperia Tablet Z LTE/Wi-Fi.
About ROM
LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.x (Oreo), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed.

LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Thanks for this ROM, amazing that I now have android 8.1 on this device. Only issue I can see is that OpenGapps doesn't yet support 8.1 so flashing older versions (at least when I tried 8.0) results in an error
This GApps pkg is for Android 8.0.x only, Please download the correct version for your ROM 8.1.0 (SDK 27)

Activate and open the Developer Settings, tick on the Terminal. Then type into the Terminal "reboot recovery", maybe you need before to type in "su". Then you hopefully can boot into your Recovery and get SuperSU.

I also cannot boot to Recovery by pressing Vol down and Power. After i flashed SU, i installed a Root App for booting to Recovery. This Solution is actually the best.

First thanks a lot for the effort!
I tried the new 15.1 build, it looks great, the only bug I recognized is ghost touches. So if I use the screen keyboard suddenly it's gone because of a ghost touch to a different screen region.
There's a developer option to show fingertipps on the screen so I can see that there's touches on parts of the screen where there are in fact none.
I don't have this behavior with lineage 14.1. on the same device (flashed back and forth between the versions).
Also there's an option to set the touch reaction time to "long" but that didn't fully solve the problem.

I don't have this issue, Pollux Windy ROM.

hi guys, I'm new here ...great forum, great knowledge
i would ask, if that is a general problem with the recovery.

i had an crash, don't know why, and had to reflash the tablet. so recovery via terminal was not possible.

is power +volume down now working? i would like to test that image.

thanks for help and answer ...
