further security updates?

I don't see any security updates for the past couple of months. Has this project been abandoned?

I see that a Lineage 17.1 build exists, but UnifiedNlp apparently doesn't work yet on that one, and I would rather not cripple my phone's location/navigation capabilities.

I am in the same position and am interested in whether new security updates are integrated into this ROM.

modpunk and @"darf erlot" made it clear that they would move to 17.1

I don't think that's clear at all, since there is nothing about that in the main post of this thread.

and then end support by the end of the year

The post I found says "provide monthly updates at least till the end of the year", which is not at all the same as definitely ending support by the end of the year. Maybe they'll end up deciding they love us enough to keep applying security patches for a while longer. :D

Hint: Following the instructions it'll build just fine with latest patches included :fingers-crossed:

Do you know how to build TWRP from those sources? The instructions don't include that part.

The current release works for me.

Do you need a lot of disk space to build it on your own ?
I have a slow internet connection and not much space, it would be really awesome if you could share your builds publicly

Lineage repo sync is about 40 GByte. Have been building for the past four month and the build directory is currently at 182 GByte. So yeah, it's not a lot but it's not nothing.

As for sharing. My current builds aren't intended for that, but I might look into it :fingers-crossed:

I also use this as a daily driver and have been wondering about future updates. It's a great rom and would be great to see additional security updates for it this year.

hello,
I don't know why, but I can't edit permission: on internal memory
trying mix, this failed
trying on a terminal under my phone, this seems to work, but no.
the only way I managed to get it working is by change file permission under TWRP :/
edit: I managed to get it working y using adb root on my laptop

Regarding the security updates status: If you compile the ROM by yourself you will still have the security updates in part of LineageOS which is used on many devices (LineageOS's applications, libs, etc.) as LineageOS 16.0 is still being updated. As far as I can see the lineage-16.0 branch of the XZ1 Compact's kernel does not have any commits (~changes) since the last published build so that is where you would lack of security updates unless you also port/merge them by yourself.

Guys! I have this ROM and i want to watch on TV videos from phone via USB-C - HDMI cable. Does the MHL work?? It is a must for me.
I installed an app to check, and it said ""Sorry your mobile cant support MHL (HDMI)"".

how to create system.new.dat?

It seems like the system.new.dat isnt a sparse image?

original system.new.dat / converted system.new.img:
Code:
gentoo-mfu /tmp/los # file system.new.dat 
system.new.dat: Linux rev 1.0 ext2 filesystem data, UUID=77a9ea36-f364-526d-8af4-eabfd5e0a014, volume name "system" (extents) (large files) (huge files)
gentoo-mfu /tmp/los # file system.new.img 
system.new.img: Linux rev 1.0 ext2 filesystem data, UUID=77a9ea36-f364-526d-8af4-eabfd5e0a014, volume name "system" (extents) (large files) (huge files)

after img2simg & img2sdat.py:
Code:
gentoo-mfu /tmp/los # file system.new.simg 
system.new.simg: Android sparse image, version: 1.0, Total of 1280000 4096-byte output blocks in 2216 input chunks.
gentoo-mfu /tmp/los # file out/system.new.dat 
out/system.new.dat: data

The question for me is.. how do you create the system.new.dat from a existing (without make_ext4) ext4-non-sparsed-image?
Did i miss something?

    RELEASE

    This is an alternative ROM for the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact. It offers several privacy features and F-Droid App Store preinstalled. If you're coming from LineageOS 15.1 you can simply update! No need to wipe anything.

    FEATURES
    • Signed with dev keys
    • FDroid preinstalled

    • Well tested but some bugs maybe included

    DOWNLOAD

    You can download the latest release here. Check the ChangeLog below for firmware requirements!

    INSTALLATION

    Put the zip file of the ROM on you sdcard or internal store and boot into recovery. If you use my TWRP recovery, you should use that one to flash the ROM.

    Make sure you select Zip signature verification.

    This will make sure the zip file has not been altered!

    SECURITY ADVICE

    Don't flash ROMs or Magisk modules which set SELinux to permissive or you welcome malware on your device!


    UPGRADE LINEAGEOS

    If you're running LineageOS 15.1 you can simply flash LineageOS 16.0, upgrade the firmware for modem etc. and be done. There is no need to wipe the data partition, just clean dalvik and cache after updating LineageOS.

    UPGRADE FIRMWARE

    • Grab the Sony Stock firmware using e.g. XPeriFrim. You should always flash the firmware matching the LOS build.
    • Grab newflasher and put it in the same folder as the firmware files.
    • Read the newflasher original post on XDA for general instructions!
    • Remove the follwing from the folder so they won't get flashed:
      • all *.ta files (keep the one in the boot/ directory)
      • cache*.sin
      • fotakernel*.sin
      • kernel*.sin
      • persist*.sin
      • system*.sin
      • userdata*.sin
      • vendor*.sin
    • Turn off your phone
    • Hold the volume down button and attach it via USB to your system till you see LED turning green
    • Run newflasher from within this directory to flash the remaining files
      You can say yes to the first optional step, in case you dont have working drivers installed.
      Skip the second optional step (dumping of trim area), it's useless if your bootloader is unlocked already and takes a long time.

    How to get root?

    Flash the su addon from LineageOS you can find here: https://download.lineageos.org/extras

    Google Apps

    You can download and install the Google Apps from opengapps.org. You need ARM64 and 9.x. I suggest to *always* use the pico package. If you need additional apps you find them in the Play Store.

    Privacy Guard for GApps

    I wouldn't run GApps without Privcy Guard. Here is what you need to do:

    Go to: Settings -> Security & location -> Privacy Guard

    Open the advanced menu (3 dots) and select: Enable by default and Show built-in apps.

    Search for Google Play Services and turn it on by tapping the entry. A long press will give additional options. There are more Google Apps you should turn it on and revoke permissions like the syncing stuff.

    FDroid

    This ROM comes with FDroid and the Privilege Extension pre-installed.

    MicroG

    This ROM doesn't support Signature Spoofing. However we are watching MicroG and check if they provide newer builds e.g. for Android Pie.

    Simple Mobile Tools

    This is a collection of really awesome Open Source and AD-free Apps! Don't get confused by the name! Especially the Calendar and Gallery app are really good! If you like his stuff, support him by buying the Simple Thanks app.

    You can find them in FDroid and the Play Store.

    Known Issues

    Some apps don't work (Gardenscapes, Die Zeit, ...)

    When an app is installed then it should ask for Permissions on the first startup. However for some apps this doesn't happen. To fix it you need to go to Settings -> Apps & Notifications -> See all apps -> Select the App -> Permissions. Now manually activate the required permission, normally the Storage Permission is missing in that case!
