 * I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed (like it did for me...). 
 * Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in the products you find here 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. 
 * Your warranty will be void if you tamper with any part of your device / software.
 * Same statement for XDA.

LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

LineageOS 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. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review.

What's working :
  • Boots
  • RIL (Calls, SMS,)
  • Fingerprint
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Front camera
  • Camera
  • Camcorder
  • Video Playback
  • Audio
  • Sensors
  • Flash
  • LED
  • GPS
  • Volte

Known issues:
  • let me know!

Instructions :
  • Download the latest build and GApps
  • Download TWRP and flash it.
  • Reboot to recovery
  • Format Data if coming from stock as stock encrypts data and hence if not formatted you will end up in bootloop!
  • Flash the latest build (Do Remember that if current slot while flashing is Slot A then Lineage will be flashed Automatically to Slot B and vice versa. While pressing Reboot in Recovery it will automatically switch to Slot B/A where LOS is installed :) )
  • Flash TWRP Zip
  • Reboot to Recovery
  • Flash Gapps :D
  • Reboot

This thread really made my day.

I cannot use it as a daily driver if data is not working but I will flash it and use it for a day just to appreciate the effort you all have put in it.

Hope to see bugs being killed soon.

Thank you.

This is the best thing I have heard about Z5Z in a while. A push was what we needed for custom roms and that is here.

Not yet daily driver but still it looks like it'll soon be.
Kudos to the devs.

I am really happy to see some actual development taking place for this device. I will surely try this rom as soon as the mobile data problem is solved.
Thanks and Good Luck!

A big thanks to both devs

Guys 5z is almost dead in market cz of its poor support at xda & github. You guys released los for 5z , is a good sign that other roms may come out in sometime.

However, your efforts are definitely appreciable. Please keep working on 5z.
