OMG, this device travelled from 4.1 to stable 9.0
Isn't it amazing?
All thanks to FXP team, mrcl1450, AdrianDC and other guys who do commits on github.
I'm on XZ1C now, but sometimes im looking on development for my old XSP, because it's still lies on my table.
Wow, just amazing...

Miracast on Android Pie

Sadly Google has removed support for Miracast in AOSP P.

An attempt to revive the abandoned code for LineageOS 16.0 is ongoing and on review.
Sorry, I mistakenly wrote the previous post to the wrong thread.

I confirm, Miracast works correctly on android 9 for OnePlus One for custom ROMs:
Arrow OS and BootleggersROM.


Maybe this information will be useful.

Official mirror.

Hello AdrianDC, i have clicked the Official downloads page some times, but basketbuild is no longer active
(maybe month).
And next question: Development page is for beta builds ? Maybe this is answer, why my Xperia SP lags.

Whats the difference between this and the official one? which one is more stable?
There is no "official" LOS 16.0 for this devices. Only 15.1. Adrian DC is the maintainer of both. When he finds the time he will probably make the required changes to the official builds, but in the meantime you can use this one.

Note that you need special migration builds if you want to switch between official and unofficial builds.

Regarding stability: the 15.1 branch has (for me, my wife and at least one other xda user) memory handling issues since September. So in general it is very stable, but might fill memory up and then freeze for a minute..
