Hello, This is off topic,
Is there a way to support the work you do - Berni ?
Or at least to show some gratitude ?
I'm thinking of gifting 10-20 Euro, to be clear.

Has anyone tested this version? Have you seen any weird behaviour?

I didn't taste it, i actually use rooted version of the previous version of your rom (Magisk + NikGapps core) and it work great
(only one thing : mms service work randomly but i don't know why)

I plan to taste the microG version next week-end

After few days of use (lineage-20.0-20221115 with NikGapps + Root) I have encoutered weird thing :
After boot (<1 minute) the phone just reboot, again and again (Another member have the same issue on lineage 19)

setenforce 0 solve definitively the problem, after that I can boot without using that command again.

No, I haven't tried it yet, but I liked your post because I use MicroG on an older tablet which made it run smoother. The Z5 is the only phone I have, so I'm a bit hesitant to try the beta. But I think MicroG is the right way forward to keep the Z5 run smooth.

Tested during seven hour yesterday, the ROM work great !

I can't sync with google without google app, for example : i have to use google agenda to sync the calendar.

I didn't try microG in the past so, It is normal ?

I for myself have seen a weird behaviour: From time to time the battery drains extremely fast and the device gets quite warm in this time. After a reboot this is gone.
I can't find any reason for it.
That's the reason why I asked if the ROM works for you.

If you refer to my little issue, I ultimately fixed it by formatting /system and re-flashing it. I might have done that a couple of times, so no idea what actually solved it. But now it works nicely again :)

Weird.. I probably don't have to tell you, but I found that "htop" in a root shell (adb or onboard) is quite helpful to check what actually uses the Cpu

I tried the beta with MicroG today without luck. The camera app kept crashing. I then tried 19 with MicroG and now the Z5 runs very smooth again! Maybe even smoother than when it was new? Many thanks Berni!! (y)

What do you want to say with the words "without luck"? Is the ROM booting and working?
Then everything is as it should be.
Otherwise please tell me what's going on.
The camera app kept crashing.
Ironic mode ON:
Whoops! That's completely new to me! How comes that?
Ironic mode OFF!

Have you seen my 1st post? There you can read under the part "These things are NOT working (or badly working):"
  • Camera

"These things are NOT working (or badly working):"
Camera
Exactly that, I was not lucky enough to get the camera to work, at all. The camera is needed for my ID app. Otherwise, everything else seemed fine. (y)

That has nothing to do with luck!
The camera-sources we're using for los19.1 aren't compilable anymore for los20.0. We don't know why and we have currently no idea how to fix that!

The same with Bluetooth! It basically starts and works, but any attempt to connect results in an instant disconnect. This is so frustrating.

    Hi all:

    Here is a LineageOS 20.0 BETA ROM for Z5 compact (suzuran).

    New: ROM with microG apk's included in priv-app:
    Download 2023-01-09

    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 command 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.

    Kernel sources
    Tree sources

    Features:

    • OS Version: 13 (T)
    • Kernel: Linux 3.10
    • Kernel 3.10.108
    • New: Android security patch level: 5 January 2023
    • Using Sony blob's from stock version 32.4.A.1.54

    Important informations:
    • You should be familiar with general installation of custom ROMs.
    • Required for installation: TWRP 3.2.1 (pick the version from 2018-02-23!!!)
      OR use my self built TWRP-version 3.7.0!
    • This ROM needs a clean install, old /data may cause problems!
    • This ROM is NOT pre-rooted. For rooting you can use Magisk.
    • It is highly recommended that your device is running (or HAS RUN in the past!) the latest stock ROM from Sony (32.4.A.1.54) before flashing this ROM.
      Otherwise the baseband files may not match.
    Working:
    • Audio
    • Enforced SELinux support
    • Fingerprint (sometimes crashes)
    • GApps (tested: MindTheGApps)
    • German App AusweisApp2

    • Notification LED
    • Offline charging
    • Phone calls
    • Reboot into recovery and bootloader
    • Sensors
    • Signed build
    • SMS
    • Sounds
    • WiFi
    • ...please tell me...
    These things are NOT (or badly) working:
    • Bluetooth
    • Camera
    • Encryption
    • FM-Radio (removed; causes crashes of bluetooth!)
    • Headset
    • Network Traffic Monitoring
    • Payment
    • Streaming (mirroring)
    • Torch
    • VoLTE
    Maybe some more things are not working. Please tell me...

    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.

    Please keep in mind, that this is a BETA version and there are some things not or not fully working. The ROM feels a little bit sluggish too! Please don't expect miracles...

    ...but it WORKS!


    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.

    Awesome, thanks for the constant support to z5c!

    Oh! I've forgotten: Signature spoofing is now working!

    Haven`t tested your new release on my old Xperia Z5C yet, but I installed unofficial LOS 20.0 in my Xperia XZ2, by @dtrunk90, and with his ROM, bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP profiles work pretty fine. Don`t know if the kernel plays a critical part on this matter. For Z5C it`s still in version 3.10, whereas for the Tama platform, it`s 4.9. Maybe you guys could chat a little about it. Thanks for giving our old little beast a new life, anyway!
