This works beautifully and is really smooth. Never thought I'd see another rom for the XC again.

Can confirm that GCam 8.x with HDR actually works! (No crashes, or stuttering) Unlike previous roms with the most recent kernel before this new one. I don't know what magic you pulled to make this happen but thank you!

Thanks for this rom! It is very fast.... Only Chrome browser is laggy...
I haven't experienced this. For me normal browsing was pretty smooth.
Have you also flashed the kernel from the .zip?

I must say that for now everything seems to work fine for me (incl. Gapps).

Tested fingerprint reader, 4G, DRM with Tidal, smooth and responsive Maps / Android Auto, smooth Chrome. No sudden reboot for now.

You won't need to flash the kernel separately, it's included in the zip:

1. Boot to TWRP.
2. Install the Lineage zip file.
3. Reboot to recovery.
4. Optional: In TWRP, install/flash Magisk 24.1 and/or MindThe GApps.

That's it. No issues with Chrome lag either. I've tried a few browsers and they all work well.

I've tested a few GCams, I find these two work best so far:



In the Advanced Settings, make sure to change AI White Balance to "Pixel 3 XL" for best colour accuracy.

Note: For the front selfie cam to work, you'll need to disable HDR first.

Please post here if you find any other good ones!

It works great! Very fast boot time. Everything is smooth, so far haven't noticed any bugs. Fingerprint unlock is faster than on stock and LOS 16.
Camera quality with the first GCam is also the best out of all custom ROMs I've tested. Great job! A new life for my old Xperia.

First , thanks for this Rom I'm very happy to See Android 12 on my phone.
I have tried Encryption and it doesn't work for me. I have a bootloop.
Has anyone else tested it?
And on the Encrypt page , I had astrange bug : I wasn't able to access to the"Encrypt" button at the bottom of the page . I had to set the police size at the smallest size to see it.

Agree, fingerprint detection and unlocking is incredibly fast, didn't think it could ever be improved this much.

Not sure what you're asking but NFC is located under:
Settings > Connected Devices > Connection Preferences > NFC

If it doesn't turn on, you might have to flash the last Sony stock firmware first then install this rom.

Someone with the JA model might be able to help.
thanks for the answer sir

I have ex japan status bootloader yes, now position in custom rom lineage 16.0 android pie, this rom very smooth in my old device , i try turn on nfc in this rom, nfc doesnt turn on , but nfc working fine in ex global

Maybe hardware nfc ex japan different with ex global , so that maybe build tree and config specific for ex japan , correct me if i wrong sir 😁

That's Android 12. I wouldn't hold my breath that someone could port an older System UI over. You would have to get used to it I'm afraid.
