Hi Berni,

Thank you for your effort on this build! Been using it on my Z5C for probably a week now.

I just wanted to confirm payment does indeed work (I’m in the UK) as I managed to use contactless yesterday.

Regards

This latest ROM for the Z5C is more stable and compleet than Apples latest IOS15 for my 6S. Battery drain, lagging apps, bug & glitches while browsing in safari..... and more. Yes first iteration and all, but hey its a trillion dollar company official release with vertical software/hardware integration.

A question, i tried to download and install Digial Wellbeing (a google llc app), using the playstore, but it says my device isn't supported.
Sideloading the apk, i can install it but the app never appears anywhere on the phone.

Does installing a custom rom like linegeOS18.1 enable the Z5C to run apps that require a higher android version than Nougat?

I really don't know what you're talking about. I neither have nor can download an app that is named so.
Maybe it is only available in some regions?

here's the link to the Playstore app:


It has somewhat a function like IOS15's focus modes, hence i was intrested in Digital Wellbeing from google. It requires Android 9 as minimum, so officially the Z5C wouldnt be supported. I wonder if the playstore somehow detects it as a Z5C and assumes im running Nougat?

Im from sweden, should be the same region?

but you can replace mindthegapps with opengapps stock version
  1. It is not trivial to replace MindTheGApps with OpenGApps. MindTheGApps is somehow stored in regions that aren't easy to remove. The best way is to perform a clean install (with FULL wipe of /data and /system!) of LineageOS 18.1 and OpenGApps in one step.
  2. There are only "pico" and "nano" flavours of OpenGApps available (see screenshot).

Ok thanks for the information, now i know its all due to what gapps one installs. Il try and test around with opengapps/nikgapps etc.

Still, i wonder why i cant install say genshin impact, or some other apps that require a certain version of android. I guess they see its a for slow hardware, too low memory etc? Im not wanting to play genshin impact on a 6 year old Z5C, just for general intrest :)

    Hmmm, I'm out. I don't give support for Google's stuff.

    I've tried to download this app and I failed too.
    I don't know how they recognize the device, but it really seems to be.

    Hi all:

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

    Download 2021-10-10

    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 md5sum checking. The zip file itself is not signed, so you have to disable zip verification.

    Kernel sources
    Tree sources

    Features:

    • OS Version: 11 (R)
    • Kernel: Linux 3.10
    • Kernel 3.10.108
    • New: Android security patch level: 1 October 2021
    • Using Sony blob's from stock version 32.4.A.1.54

    Important informations:
    • You should be familiar with general installation of custom ROMs.
    • Required for installation: TWRP 3.2.1 (pick the version from 2018-02-23!!!)
      OR use my self built TWRP-version 3.5.2!
    • This ROM needs a clean install, old /data may cause problems!
    • This ROM is NOT pre-rooted. For rooting you can use Magisk.
    Working:
    • Phone calls
    • SMS
    • WiFi
    • Bluetooth (WIP)
    • Fingerprint
    • GPS
    • Location services
    • Headset
    • LiveDisplay
    • Enforced SELinux support
    • Torch
    • German app AusweisApp2
    • Offline charging
    • Notification LED
    • GApps (MindTheGApps 11 arm64)
    • Camera; both built-in camera (Snap) and 3-rd party camera apps.
      Camera2 may be a little bit laggy, please use 3-rd party camera app instead; for example OpenCamera. If you're running into errors, please report.
    • FM-Radio (maybe it needs a few restarts before it's working)
    • SafetyNet test passed successfully
    • Hotspot
    • Restart into recovery
    • New: Bluetooth voice calls
    • New: Full speed on /sdcard partition
    These things are NOT working (or badly working):
    • Encryption
    • Camera focus at low distances.
    • Streaming (mirroring)
    • Payment
    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.

    I finally managed to increase the write speed on /sdcard partition dramatically:
    Code:

    65536+0 records in
    65536+0 records out
