I've the same problem, reboot to recovery from boot menu isn't possible, after sony boot logo appear a black screen and nothing else; if I try to reboot, system doesn't start and go in the previous black screen.
I have the latest twrp-3.5.0-0-20210117-poplar.img
have you tried just reflashing the recovery?

i was referring to the issue of not being able to boot into recovery.

as for why the system isn't booting, obviously something during the flash was not done right, seeing as I myself upgraded 2 different devices from los17.1 without a problem and a clean flash also works without issues both for me and at least 10+ people that have tested before I posted the rom here

Okay now it seems to work, but is a strange thing that appear sometimes, because I had this also on 3.4 version more than one time

did you by any chance select the option to update the built-in recovery with system updates? it might be tgatbwhat you are seeing there is the LOS recovery, which is currently broken, that replaced twrp.

i have also fixed los recovery since then, so that black screen at least shouldn't happen anymore with newer builds.

yes first time with you rom I without thinking select that option, and I sincerly think that was the problem, but I've already hit on it in lineage 17, and I don't remember there was this option... Maybe is the installation process, even if it goes well without any error

How are people coping without the stock Sony camera? I'm looking to migrate from PixelExperience to something else (this rom, most likely), but I'm sceptical about the camera issues and other issues with this rom.

Tried dirty-flash over 17.1 with dalvik/cache wipe - looks like it's crashing on boot, 2-3 mins of showing LOS logo, and then reboots into TWRP.

Upd: it's caused by Magisk 21.4, patched bootimage is unbootable. Any other rooting solution?
Upd2: tried Magisk 21.2, 21.3 - also breaking boot image
Upd3, final: looks like it's something in how recovery processes Magisk installer zip, I've managed to extract boot, manually patch and flash via fastboot.
Debug info: dsds twrp version from top post.

Btw, the first post contains incorrect info on bugs: WFD works at least for purposes of screen mirroring - checked via miracast to Samsung TV

Working in my XZ1. It seems to work perfectly. Nothing strange except....
It's normal in those ROM that the google play doesn't work with my credit card? I tried also putting magisk and some changes but I can't solve it. Sorry if it's not the place. Someone knows a solution for XZ1? I use a lot NFC payment.
