The camera is bad, I have to install another one?
Seems to work well. But the battery life is pretty bad. While being idle, Omni dies when stock is still +45% battery left.
Same for me. Just installed omnirom 2 weeks ago and battery drain is terrible. It consuming so much power that i cant normal charge battery (it charge 1% per 4 minutes - if I switch off phone then charging is much faster)
Have not noticed that. But battery drain is horrible.
I can confirm, up to 50% higher than Omni 7.1.2.
Had asked in February Fred #130 - no answer back then.
Hey guys. I'm about to install my first android costum rom on a smartphone. Having a Xperia X currentlly operating with Sailfish X (excellent OS but due to work related **** need some apps blabla). Ok, so i've decided upon installing the one that looked the most stable, official, secure and uptodate, Omnirom. Can I please, please have a detailed explanation on how to install Omnirom, or at least guide me to a video/post explaining all the steps that I need to go through as I am a complete newbie.
I've tried using Sony Companion Tool to revert to the original stock situation but that didn't work.
can you please post some numbers of the drain? how much battery% drains in an hour while the device is in deep sleep? betterbatterstats should be able to show this
As I guess, your bootloader is unlocked.
Then you need 'Emma' from Sony or Sony 'FlashTool'.
For both Google has good instructions.
So if Stockrom is reinstalled, you need recovery.
Enable developer options and adb.
Then flash a Custom-ROM Kernel (eg Oreo), followed by TWRP 3.2.1.
After that, go to Recovery and follow the installation steps on page 1.
I wish you success! :highfive:

What is the problem with a boot crash? Do you reboot that often? If I can successfully boot my device after some attempts, it is not such a critical issue. The old security level is more critical. Sidechannel updates are problematic, because of the different signatures. I don't want to wipe my device every time.
How many boot attempts are needed in average?
