Hi all:

Here is a LineageOS 19.1 ROM for Z5 compact (suzuran).

New: ROM with microG apk's included in priv-app:
Download 2023-09-19

Please pay attention: microG can't coexist with GApps! So decide whether to install microG OR GApps!

If you want to remove microG, enter these commands line by line in a terminal:
Code:
adb root
adb shell

mount -o remount,rw /

rm /system/priv-app/DroidGuard/DroidGuard.apk
rm /system/priv-app/FakeStore/FakeStore.apk
rm /system/priv-app/GmsCore/GmsCore.apk
rm /system/priv-app/GsfProxy/GsfProxy.apk

exit

Reboot!


Or flash this microG-remover.

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.

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.

After installing this TWRP was changed to the one from Lineage. It no longer picks up my mounts. Must I use ADB to recover from this? How do I revert to TWRP? I can no longer use fastboot.

I performed a cache/dalvik/system and data wipe and installed the latest 19.1 release but it never boots up past the swirling animation. It does not reboot either. I added a zip containing pmsg-ramoops-0

New version out; see 1st post.
  • New values for vibration strengths set.
  • Fixed Fingerprint location hint animation while enrolling.
  • Screen density reduced because all of the UI elements of Android 12L (Lineage 19.1) are too large for our little screen.

Hey friends,
New z5c, had sony stock on it.

I installed TWRP latest using adb/fastboot on ubuntu 20.04
All good
I flashed Lineage 19
On reboot I just get a boot loop, going between Sony logo and swirly android animation

adb recgnises the device but says "offline"
No commands work

I have tried every button combo I could find suggested everywhere, including above
But the phone will not boot into TWRP

Any suggestions, please?

Ok. Which version of TWRP have you flashed? My own?

You can flash the latest stock ROM with the flashtool. If you're installing this tool at windows, you can use the integrated XPeriFirm tool to download the latest stock ROM.
Or you install this XPeriFirm version.
If you're not in a hurry: In a few minutes my upload of my latest LineageOS 19.1 boot and system image will be completed.

    Dear Bernie-0815,

    Your ROM 19.1 works like a charm. Had it installed two weeks ago and tried all kinds of stuff; nothing failed so far. I just wanted to give you a very huge Thank You! for your efforts and your great work.

    I used the old official Lineage 14.1 until now because I was hesitant to try an 'unofficial' version. But your ROM has breathed new life into this smartphone which I attempt to keep for a number of reasons (small size, headphone jack, not interested in fancy new hardware etc.).

    So, I just wanted to reach out and thank you for making it possible to use older, yet absolutely functional smartphones longer. I recommended your ROM to a friend also using a Z5 compact (still with the stock Sony ROM) and think she'll soon go for it as well.

    Keep up the good work, and be assured that there are people out there still using the Z5 Compact on a daily base and in productive mode!
