Slightly off topic but couldn't find an answer. Does this rom or the Z5C in general support raw image capture for the camera? I have an X Compact, which can run GCam 8.x mods with HDR and NightSight, can the Z5C do the same?

Not as far as i know. Due to the camera quality on this rom and no working gcam so far you can barely take snapshots with it. What would raw be a use for?

But the phone is supporting camera2api, so theoretically it is possible to use gcam. If you figure out how to run gcam on this rom let us now.

If I remember correctly, there was no raw support, not even on stock rom. In fact, the camera (or rather, the bad software/drivers) are one of my main issues with this phone.

Thanks. Raw capture is used for HDR processing, and is required to run most GCam mods after version 6. I was mostly interested to see if Camera2 API was supported. Looks like the X Compact (kugo) is the only compact device that supports it, which is a shame because the hardware/kernel support is the pits and the Z5C actually has better hardware than it despite being the older model. Sony also locked Camera2 API and raw capture on the entire XZ1-3 lineup.

Nope. Just tested:

Camera 2 API is fully suported, RAW is not. Screenshot_20210325-011809_Trebuchet.pngScreenshot_20210325-011736_Trebuchet.png

First of all I want to thank you for the great job you did with you ROM's!
I use 14.1 now for a while and wanted to upgrade today.
So far everything worked but one app: Traderepublic. It always complains about the missing Play Services, but I installed and updated them. Do you have any hint what to do about such an issue issue?

Used Gapps: NikGapps-core-arm64-10-20210130-signed.zip

Sorry I'm an idiot! If I use NikGapps-core-arm64-11-20210130-signed.zip it works ;-)

hello

i just installed this rom today and performance is good
but charging off not showing after powering off in usb charger connected,isn't bug?
1 more,android 11 use 11 gb in system?

There are several discussions about charging while powered off in this thread. I don't know what is the actual state of development there.

On my device the android system uses ~8GB.Screenshot_20210406-100150_Trebuchet.png

Hi Berni,
again many, many thanks for your work and spare time!
I have still the following issues (even using your latest ROM from march 24th):
  • Charging only to 75% if Android is running, if the phone is off it charges to 100%, but it seems to over charge or the CPU is running at its highest clock speed. If I load the device during the night, it is still warm next morning.
  • Low sd-card speed (this avoids recording video directly to sd-card, I assume this is the reason for choppy video)
  • I use OSMAND+ for navigation and it takes very long until this app can find my position (several minutes). I have no experience with other apps that require my location. Perhaps others here can also report on their experiences with the GPS positioning.
  • I miss the auto focus at low distances with the camera.
Berni, do work on one of these items?

Best regards, ... and greetings from Saxony :)

    This update was able to be updated smoothly by installing gapps and magisk at the same time.

    Thanks a lot, Bernie! Both A2DP and AVRCP are working fine with the 0531 build. Almost forgot to tell you that file transfer via Bluetooth is working as well.

    This is a 7z archive with the zip'ed ROM and the md5 file in it. Please unpack this archive, copy the included two files somewhere to your device, reboot into TWRP and flash this zip file. Enable zip verification and md5sum checking.

      OR use my self built TWRP-version 3.5.2!

    Maybe some more things are not working.

    Use this ROM at your own risk! It comes without any warranty! I'm not responsible for any damage! If you don't agree with that, don't try to flash this ROM in any way.

    Benefits:

    • Added F-Droid and UnifiedNLP! If you don't want this, simply de-install it.
    • I've set maximum speaker volume to a higher value.
    • I've increased microphone gain.
    • I've changed the microfone gain to avoid echo in phone calls.
    Changelog

    Troubleshooting:


    • If you're running into an error, please search in this thread if this error is already posted, before you post it again!
      If not, I need a LOG to see what went wrong. Without a LOG I can't help you!
      A LOG can be fetched by connecting the device with an USB cable to your PC and then by typing these commands line by line:
      Code:
      adb root
      adb shell logcat -b all -d > logcat
      Send my this LOG file via PM.
    • If you think this could be a SELinux related issue, please try to set the device to permissive mode first.
      If the issue is gone, I need the policy file too (plus LOG). Fetch it by typing this line in a terminal:
      Code:
      adb pull /sys/fs/selinux/policy
    • If you stuck in a bootloop you can fetch a LOG with this trick:
      • Press the power button and the volume up button together until the device shuts down.
      • HOLD the power button.
      • Release the volume up button and press the volume down button immediately after releasing the volmue up button.
      • The device should start into TWRP recovery.
      • Tap on "Advanced", then on "Terminal" and enter these commands line by line:
        Code:
        cd sys/fs/pstore
        cp * /sdcard
      • Send me the copied file(s), if any, via PM.


    One last request:

    Please, do not ask about problems for which my ROM is not responsible.
    From now on I will only react to problems that I can reproduce and that are caused by my ROM.


    I'm sorry for that, but I'm developing this ROM in my spare time and I still have a normal life.
