CyanogenMod 13 for the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact E5823 and E5803​

CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Before you start

This ROM is only for the E5823 and the E5803

Code:
 *
 * Your warranty may be voided !
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 *

Q&A

Q&A

Q: Does this work on the Z5/Z5 Premium
A: No, this ROM is for the Z5 Compact only. Please visit the appropriate forum for your device as the appropriate CM version for your device is located there

Q: Does this work on E58XX
A: This ROM was build for the E5823 and E5803, flash it on a different Z5C model at your own risk! If it works, please report it to me so I can update the thread

Q: How long until <insert issue here> gets fixed
A: ETA's (Short for Estimated Time of Arrival) aren't tolerated well on XDA. Please remember that this is only a hobby

Q: CM becomes really laggy after a few minutes (Should not happen anymore, however if it does then follow the answer)
A: Please check the "How to disable the Thermal Manager" guide in the thread

my last phone was a oneplus one. I couldn't get used to its size so I switched to the z5c. I kinda started regretting my decision but this makes me really happy.

Not sure if you already know or not, but here's a list of stuff you could do to fix the various issues:
1. RIL: you need this repo
2. Sensors: you need https://gerrit.omnirom.org/#/c/16961/ and this
3. Camera: you need this repo

I assume those are the reasons for the issues you listed, since I stumbled upon them myself before ;)

Oh and could you please tell me what you exactly mean when you list "Full brightness" and "Dex preoptimization" under non-functional?

Hey, thanks allot for the links. This will definitely give you credit once i've tried them out. Any help in such kind is extremely apriciated as it makes development quicker!

Dex preoptinization is ensuring that the boot up takes less time and apps are optimized for the 64 bit architecture. I've had to remove it completely at first from my build environment after experiencing memory related crashes. However, now I changed the vm config to a working one, meaning that I will try to build with dex preopt enabled again.

Brightness isn't at it's max when turned up, I believe the kernel is the reason to this, however I am quite sure where and what to do to fix that.

Huge thanks from me, this could get us a stable ROM in a very short time sir!

Feel free to join our developer organization since you have some experience with AOSP builds for the device I guess

thanks for the nice words :angel:, but I'm just a script kiddy (at least according to @someone755 :rolleyes: ) when it comes to these stuff.
Just happened to find these fixes :silly:
My main interest is PAC-rom, and sadly I don't have enough space on my system to also accomodate CM and try it out :(
Although I guess there's not that much difference because device trees originate from the same place (aosp) ;)

Wups, out of thanks... Reached the limit

Anyways, like I said feel free to join our organization, you can work on PAC-ROM there if you want.

he was just kidding. we both have a weird sense of humor :angel:

oh and to get back on topic, you might be interested in the following repos, as they contain the commits required to reboot to recovery, like on other xperia devices ;)
https://github.com/SonyCM

it also might be worth it to rebase your work on top of them, as they're maintained by a CM member ;)

I'll see if i can get the stuff i have on my personal github sorted in a good way so they can be easily merged into your repos :D

    Ok before you guys think I'm dead, I'm not. I've just been busy like always. I've spend the majority of free time on C++ practice and turns out debian got corrupted, so I'm finally here again with Arch (Ima post a screenshot of my new flashy high-tek hacker desktop soon). Now this doesn't mean I'll just Straight into Z5C development. I've got some work to do with my Galaxy tab s2 and now that my friends Xperia X arrived (cool phone guys, gj sony), i'll get my S5 mini back and will run some Security patch updates for CM. Then we can start talking about the Z5C again. The next issue will be keeping track of Upstream again :/

    Okay, i'm gonna give you a sneak peak on what you can expect in the next release

    - Full brightness
    - Double Tap 2 Wake
    - USB gadgets support
    - Better core performance

    The reason why I haven't released it yet is due to a small misunderstanding about Sony's sensor related commits, meaning i've accidentally disabled the sensors. Tough a new build is coming today so no panic
