How do this version LineageOS 18.1 and the previous version (LineageOS 17.1) compare with respect to performance, battery drain, memory usage ... any opinions on this?

I've read the whole thread and collected some relevant quotes below. They're somewhat conflicting.

#5
I'm using this ROM since some hours now and I have to say, that it's working very good. Better that expected. The device is not getting warm (or hot) and the battery comsumption is very low.
---
#10
Animations are not as smooth as in Android 10, such as:
---
#173
It's fascinating to see Android 11 running THIS smooth on a 6 year old device.
---
#219
It is running very smooth (in my opinion faster than stock 7.1.1) and with a remarkable battery life (my Mi A2 drains about two times faster with stock android one).
---
#480
it still lasts for about a day on a full battery
---
#679
Never thought that it would run so smooth, almost considered getting another phone, but now I'm sure I'll keep this one for much longer
---
#845
Since I also had problems with the restrictive memory policy on A11, I downgraded to Berni's LiOS 17.1. Unfortunately, after booting, the phone always hung and rebooted shortly after. I already wanted to give up and took out the external SD card in preparation for flashing the Stock Rom again, but then the system was suddenly stable. After having changed the partition of the external SD card from exFAT to FAT32, everything now runs stable and smoothly.

dirty flashing over 17.1 is working. (I've never tried it before though.)

After flashing the 18.1 ROM, remember to reflash magisk before rebooting, in order to preserve Magisk environment.

For signature spoofing, just follow what you did on your previous device, so that microG could work.

Do I understand this correctly?

In order to get signature spoofing in 18.1 (to be able to install microG) I must:
  • first flash 17.1 and activate signature spoofing
  • then (dirty) flash 18.1 so signature spoofing will be carried over to 18.1
Right?

Hi,

First of all, welcome onto the boat! Hope you enjoy your stay :)

The ROM was under active development and optimization, so older comments do not reflect the current state of the ROMs. Currently both the 17.1 and 18.1 ROMs are very stable and smooth.

As for the spoofing I forgot the exact procedure I did then, but as of now I believe you can flash a package from MinMicroG[1] and call it a day. Everything works after flashing (presumably).

BTW my Z5C completely died so I can't do any testing, sorry for that :-/

Cheers,
ltlnx

Signature spoofing (It is required for installing microG, if you're planning to use microG) is part of my ROM's. You only need to flash the ROM you want to use.
The only prerequisite may be that you're coming from the latest Sony stock ROM (32.4.A.1.54). Without that some required stuff (baseband, modem, partitions) may not be present.
If you're planning to use GApps instead (they can't coexist!), you should flash a GApps package of your choice after fully installing the ROM.

You can also just install FakeGapps (Whew version) from github as LSPosed Module and activate it for MicroG and all other apps, which normally need gapps installed.

Oumph! The latest mentioned Android version is 5.0! That's what I'm calling quite old... ;)
Edit: I've just seen that he simply doesn't update the file Readme.md...
And, sorry, but I can't see any benefit in comparison with my way (gms, gsf, FakeStore and DroidGuard Helper; see my post above).
Nevertheless: Everyone should do what he wants to do...
 
I just revived my dear suzeran, for a later handover to my mother. Anyway, I am surprised that somebody is keeping dev things alive here, fantastic job, @Berni-0815!!!

So I wiped everything (old 14.1 setup) and installed the 18.1 LOS and it runs smoothly, brilliant! One thing though, the preview in the camera is not working, it is just black, but I can take pictures. Any hints what to do with the non working cam preview?

Just a quick one: THANK YOU, Berni!
Edit: I feel tempted to use the phone again. Now that I have a recent version of Android running it feels better than my (newer) XZ2 Compact.

Has anyone had issues with using the lineageOS calendar app?

org.lineageos.etar (version 11)

When I try to create an event, there's a lag of up to 20 seconds with any action (keyboard popping up, activating a different text field, entering event name, modifying time/date, ...).

Message pops up "Calendar isn't responding .. Close app / Wait"

I'm using DAVx5 and have a calendar account synced.

I'm still on the los 20220413 build.

logcat doesn't look like there's anything interesting/useful.

    Hi all:

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

    Download 2022-08-15

    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.

    • This ROM is NOT pre-rooted. For rooting you can use Magisk.
    • It is highly recommended that your device is running (or HAS RUN in the past!) the latest stock ROM from Sony (32.4.A.1.54) before flashing this ROM.
      Otherwise the baseband files may not match.
    Working:
    • Audio
    • Bluetooth
    • Camera; both built-in camera (Snap) and 3-rd party camera apps.

    • VoLTE
    Maybe some more things are not working.Please tell me...

    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 Aurora-Store, 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.
