Made a move from AICP oreo to this ROM some days ago (mainly to see whether battery consumption is better here, and yes - it's much better, esp after I ran the mid December ota update I hardly reach 50% deep sleep time under AICP, whereas here I usually get well over 95%!).

Yesterday and today I did some GPS tests. Yesterday I started with resetting / reloading agps data, then started GPS Locker app. Out in the street it took several minutes until first fix. So today I tried again but still the same amount of time until a fix.

Back home I tried to find GPS.conf, but couldn't find it. Looked in /system/etc/ as well as in system/vendor/etc/ (according to several posts here at xda as well as Lineage's own forum that's where this conf should be. But not in my installation.

Could someone please have a look if this file exists? Or is it for some reason moved to a different location?

You'll find it under system/vendor/etc/gps_debug.conf
I don't know why it's copied there under a different name. Maybe it was a temporary debug thing...

Anyway - tweaking gps.conf is kind of snakeoil ;)

Probably you're right, but at least I'd like to try.

It's working for me. The thread was established in a wrong subforum and moved afterwards by an admin. Maybe there are some outdated caches?
You'll also find the thread under https://forum.xda-developers.com/sony-xperia-z1-compact/development It should be on top ;)

That is a known bug inregards to the XDA APP and XDA Forums. Once the 1st regular post appears, you will be able to access from the app. I am not at home right now, so can't access from my app either... :)

    FAQ
    What about device encryption?
    Device encryption is working. You only have to keep in mind that you need a PC with adb to install systemupdates.
    Flashing via recovery isn't working until now, because there isn't a recovery capable of decrypting Oreo /data partitions at the moment. But an easy "adb sideload" should do the job. Or installing from the external SD card.
    What about reboot to recovery?
    Reboot to recovery is only working with magisk installed. Investigating this...
    Reboot to recovery is working as it should now (and of course also without magisk).
    What about GPS?
    GPS apps like GPS Status&Toolbox or SatStat don't get location fixes. Nevertheless navigating with Osmand or googleMaps should work. Positionfinding is also slow. Got better :)
    I found a bug. What should I do?
    We need your feedback for optimization. But your feedback is only useful in connection with logs --> see section Bugreports
    What about root access?
    Root isn't included per default (except root over adb, but it's off by default).
    If you want to gain root access to your apps use one of these (depending on your taste/needs):

    Great! Could You explain what was wrong? Looks like at end of Oreo's life we got fully working rom :)

    During Oreo bringup sdm845 gps libs were used due to compiling errors (AFAIK...). We now switched back to msm8974 ones and they work properly :)

    • fixed GPS 3D fix
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=1322778262904028247

    I'm going to upload it also on a different site (AFH is soo slow sometimes.) Please be patient.

    Can anyone please post/link to pics from lineageos Camera app? Is it reasonable like a moto G level. I do not need fantastic pics like original blob sony binary. I am interested in buying this device as it is one of the few compact devices.
    And if I understood GPS is poor at the moment.
    Thx

    GPS is in a usable state. 3D fix is working since today's build. The pictures taken by the camera are really okay. But taking photos in bad light situations is always a problem (also for Stock ROM).
    I can really recommend the Z1 compact. I'll take some pictures and share them later on ;)
