Unfortunately I broke the phone via flashtool and choosing the simlock option :(
I bought a Samsung Galaxy S7
I greet everyone...

I have never tried that, but is it really bricked? Can't you erase the flash where the setting is stored? Just out of curiosity..

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean. Do you mean something like a fuse?
My guess is that it just writes a value in one of these normally hidden partitions. Then the modem processor would read that and only accept sim cards with that value. So, if it is somewhere on the storage, you can erase and re-write it.

I searched for a solution, but to no avail - in the end I gave up. After flashing and selecting the simlock option, the phone does not read SIM cards.

Well, I never managed to do it :D
Usually, you can always go into flash mode (green led) and reflash a stock rom, including the bootloader and all that hidden stuff.

Yeah ive managed to do really strange things and have it 'bricked' with xperia phones but somehow always managed to load a rom again using flashtool (for xperia).
Cant try with samsung yet (odin) since the charger port is broken, which seems the only way to flash :p

Allright then ☺️
Hello to all of you ! I have a tiny little problem after installing that ROM (which seems very nice !)

Mmmm.... I don't know if anyone could do or from itself to his phone, but, my downside of the screen (not the part with menu buttons, just over it) do not work at all after flashing it.
To validate any information, it's just impossible.

I wiped my XZ5C completly before flashing the rom and the Gapps (Mindthegapps), and wiped cache after that... Soooo... Sorry if the problem is not findable for you, i'm gonna try to flash original ROM and hope that solve my problem 🤗😉

PS: sorry for the horrible english, i'm a frog 😅
PS2: sorry my autocorrection from my Nexus 4 make it even worse 😌

Hi again, Berni!
I just noticed on my other devices, which already run 18.1, that there it is not possible to spoof signatures, so microg is not able to work.
While on a third device, where 17.1 was running before together with Magisk, after sideload upgrad to 18.1 the recent configuration was still active and microg working, I wonder, if it is also that easy to just sideload 18.1 over 17.1. (here it is more critical because of lots of data and much work to reinstall everything manually in the case of failure).

And another question: after exchanging the battery (with 17.1) I experience the new draining much faster, then the old already degraded one. (I even exchanged the battery one more time to be sure).
The electronic guy said, that sometimes it is helpful to reinstall the system from scratch after battery exchange. Is this somehow reasonable?

Hi, please ask your question to the relevant topic or do your own research. I think this is not the appropriate forum topic to ask such.

    I finally managed to increase the write speed on /sdcard partition dramatically:
    Code:
    suzuran:/ $ dd if=/dev/zero of=/sdcard/output count=65536
    65536+0 records in
    65536+0 records out
    33554432 bytes (32 M) copied, 0.706444 s, 45 M/s

    New version out; see 1st post.
    • Android security patch level: 5 July 2021
    • Minor changes in the devices' fingerprint; hopefully GPay payment is working now.
    • Major changes regarding ims. But unfortunately VoLTE is still not working.

    I'm hopeful this can be fixed for the Z5 compact as well
    Issue is fixed! The fix will be published in my next version as soon as the "Android security patch level" has been updated.
    Please be patient.

    Since today there is a "pico" and a "nano" flavour of OpenGApps for Android 11 available.
    Please pay attention, that these versions are NOT compatible with a previour installed MindTheGApps oder NikGApps version. There are inconsistences in /data that causes the device NOT to boot!

    Edit: I'm therefore not responsible for a no longer working device and I will therefore not answer any error message regarding GApps!

    Thank you Berni for updating this rom regularly and still improving it. I wish big smartphone manufacturer would update their software so steady and quick and would react as fast as you do when problems occur . (y)

    Hi all:

    Here is a LineageOS 18.1 ROM for Z5 compact (suzuran).

    Download 2021-07-19

    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!

    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.
