Hi! Thank you very much for this awesome rom.
Please, can anyone tell me if the Picture in Picture mode works when trying to play a youtube video in whatsapp? In my case the picture is absolutely green. I can hear the audio of the video though. Thanks!
It's also slow for me after installing Gapps. I think the rom is the problem and probably rom use lineageos kernel. @millosr I Build android 10 rom for Xperia S. What are the steps I need to follow? Can you enlighten me?
This build must be flashed from the latest version of TWRP (3.2.3).
It also needs to be clean flashed or you have to delete /system/addon.d/70-gapps.sh and flash nAOSP and gapps together (I did the second option).
The reason for this is Superuser permission change, which is in PackageInstaller. By default gapps replaces installer with it's own and when you dirty flash rom addon restore override PackageInstaller from the rom. Removing gapps addon script prevents overriding of PackageInstaller, but you have to flash the gapps manually.
This version has gapps-config.txt which will prevent PackageInstaller override.
Jack detection can be set in nAOSProm options. When it is on it means Manual, so you have to toggle jack QS tile to turn earphones on. When it is off it is automatic, so phone will try to automatically detect earphones. In my case phone can auto detect Sony original earphones but when I use some others I have to use jack toggle.
I tried to fix the bluetooth crashes but they still occur sometimes for me. Generally I can use bluetooth and when I turn it on and start playing music it works fine. But sometimes crash occurs when I turn it on or when start to play music. I didn't have problems when I played some youtube videos with bluetooth earphones.
I succeeded to fix force closes during Setup Wizard, so I have enabled it again.
When clean flashing nAOSP and OpenGapps micro first boot takes around 15-20 minutes, and setup wizard process takes 5-10 minutes.
I've tried to optimize battery usage but I haven't succeeded. For me when device is idle around 4% per hour is drained. After clean install without gapps around idle usage is 1%/h and after clean install with gapps and nothing else usage is around 2.5% per hour.
P.S. Sorry for not answering emails. I was busy lately, so I didn't followed xda forum. I'm glad others answered. Thanks.
I have found the reason for not booting to charging mode when connecting charger while phone is off. Charger daemon was renamed in android 8 from healthd to charger.
I've found the commit in xperia sp device tree, and applied it to nozomi / hikari. I had also to bring back chargemon rules from nougat.
For the Bluetooth I found the reason for not showing pairing dialog and fixed that, but after that I found that receiving files with bluetooth also doesn't work, so I had to cherry pick another 17 commits to fix that.
In b08 I switched to nougat Bluetooth stack - because oreo bt changes caused bt / fm radio to crash and I couldn't found what was the main reason for that. That switch caused some things to fail, like bt pairing, so I fixed that now. Also, some Bluetooth options in developer settings have no effect because they are not implemented in nougat bt stack.
Btw. there is no July security patch for oreo in android source. June patch might be the last one.
