wow. i wish the xz1 will stay "updated" til android 13 🤣. don't have enough money to upgrade to xz2/3 😅
I love the XZ1 hardware wise (16:9 aspect ratio, front-firing stereo speakers) very much. Would still be using it, if it would run GCam with NightSight, which I can not live without. Is there still no custom ROM that can run GCam incl. NightSight on the XZ1?

Thanks so much for this.
Stock camera is not working anymore due to incompatibility of stock library (libimageprocessorjni.so) with new libgui
I've upgraded from your LineageOS 17 build and the camera seems to work completely fine for me. Also mobile internet now finally works for me with this build (it didn't with LOS 17). The only thing that's missing is the default app for E-Mail.

Also is there a way to support you via a small donation? Like do you have Liberapay?

The carrier profile can use the files from XZ3(oem.sin).XZ1 stop updating very early,XZ3 is constantly being updated.
The carrier which are China Unicom and China Telecom used is from XZ3(oem.sin).

This file is modified according to XZ3.(by iovf and 沙河新基金啊)
Hi,
Do you know how to enable VoLTE for China Unicom?

Using this ROM for 2 months now...
Pros:
+ Mostly stable, except for very specific case (see cons)
+ Almost no bloatware (microg, vendor-specific apps etc) - modem switcher notifications are disableable at last
+ Passes SafetyNet with minimal handwaving
+ All hardware stuff appears to be working

Cons:
- High power consumption, discharge from full to 30 percents in 10 hours (was about 16 hours on LOS 17.1)
- Sudden freezes when making partial screenshots (short-press vol down + power)
- Camera app does not actually save to SD card
- Weird recovery - had to manually patch kernel image file for Magist setup, then install (written above, pg2 or 3 of this thread), looks like recovery coming with this ROM does something wrong - autopatch via recovery kills kernel, regardless which Magisk version do I pick

中国电信的4G LTE通话正常,但无法使用数据流。我应该怎么办?

MOD EDIT: English Translation Below

China Telecom's 4G LTE calls are normal, but data streams cannot be used. How should I do?

    Youtube hdr works now. Clearly was silently broken by Google
    some time before for a number of devices. I wish XZ1 was included for official quick update. Even my old lg g2 is listed to receive official android 11 support! I felt very disappointed.

    Youtube HDR is a stuttering fest. Anything above 480p HDR is unplayable and laggy.

    On the other hand 4K normal SDR plays butterly smooth. What gives? Can you fix this on a future update someone very pretty please? Thank you!!!!!

    Hi, wanting to update my sisters phone, from derfs 17.1 to this.
    I'm slighty confused though. I thought firmware and custom rom same thing?
    So, I need to update the firmware with the options, then install this rom?
    I'm thinking I will just dirty flash from 17.1 (with a backup done ofc) but this firmware thing has thrown me.

    Ps. Is this ROM still being supported, as last was in Jan 2021?

    Thanks

    Random hang & reboot on intensive storage write (SD or internal, does not matter). May corrupt SD index. Only way to avoid is to lock and don't use phone at all when it writes much data.

    I think (might be wrong) that gcam works on SODP ROMS. No idea if it works perfectly or if there are SODP roms in good shape rightw now, tho.

      • Signed with dev keys
      • Up-to-date kernel
      • WireGuard kernel support

      DOWNLOAD

      Check the ChangeLog below for firmware requirements!

      INSTALLATION

      Put the zip file of the ROM on your sdcard or internal storage, boot into recovery and flash. When coming from stock: boot into TWRP, format data, reboot to recovery and wipe all internal partitions. Then flash the ROM, GApps (if needed) and root (if needed).

      Note: There is not going to be a LOS su addon anymore. If you need root, flash a root manager of your choice. No guaranteed support from LOS for this.

      When updating from builds, simply dirty flash the ROM.

      If coming from 17.1, please see advice below in second post ("UPGRADE LINEAGEOS").

      KNOWN ISSUES
      • WFD is not working yet (waiting for new non-BSP blobs)
      • Stock camera is not working anymore due to incompatibility of stock library (libimageprocessorjni.so) with new libgui
      • You tell me...

      SECURITY ADVICE

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


      UPGRADE LINEAGEOS


      I have not tried upgrading the device from 17.1 and cannot guarantee that it will work - you should do a backup just in case. If things go wrong, flash it as if coming from stock (see instructions in OP).

      The following steps should work though:
      • Flash new twrp and boot into it
      • Flash new rom, opengapps and any updated root solution you use
      • Optional: Clear cache
      • Reboot
      Note: When updating form Lineage 17.1, you maybe have to once change your preferred network type from 3g back to 4g/LTE.

      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 following 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
        • 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 don't 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?

      As mentioned before, there will not be an official su addon from LOS anymore. If you need root, flash an unofficial solution.

      Google Apps

      You can download and install the Google Apps from opengapps.org. You need ARM64 and 11.x. I suggest to *always* use the pico or nano package. If you need additional apps you find them in the Play Store.

      Open GApps for Android 11 is still in beta. You can download those releases here

      MicroG

      This ROM doesn't support Signature Spoofing. However we are watching MicroG and check if they provide newer builds e.g. for Android 11.

      REQUIRED FIRMWARE: 47.2.A.11.228

      Thanks @derf elot ! For all your and the rest of the Dev team's efforts.

      What can we (the community) do to help get the camera back up and running?

      Unfortunately, I am not sure there is much that we can do. The stock library that we need for the stock camera app to work properly (libimageprocessorjni.so) is not liking the new Android 11 libgui. We (also with the help of @j4nn ) tried to fix these issues in various ways, including shimming and forcing the use of the 10 libgui but haven't managed to get it working properly yet. Maybe we'll have a crack at it again at some point, but I wouldnt get my hopes up too much. It also doesn't help that the XZ2/3 series is not getting an official Android 11 update. Opencamera is a decent alternative, although it does lack some of the stock camera options.

      Ok THIS WAS THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER... I'll test it asap:)

      Happy birthday. I hope you enjoy :)
