Hi all:

Here is a LineageOS 15.1 ROM for Z5 compact.

Download 2020-10-22

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 zip verification and md5sum checking.

Kernel sources
Tree sources

Features:

  • OS Version: 8.1.0 Oreo
  • Kernel: Linux 3.10
  • Android security patch level: 5 October 2020 (see attached picture)
  • 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!!!) There is a version 3.2.3 out there, but with that version I had problems to restore my backups. 3.2.1 is just working perfect for me!
  • This ROM needs a clean install, old /data may cause problems!
  • This ROM is pre-rooted.
  • This ROM comes with F-Droid and UnifiedNLP.

Working:
  • Phone calls
  • SMS
  • Manual mobile network search
  • WIFI
  • Bluetooth
  • Fingerprint
  • GPS
  • Location services
  • LiveDisplay (see attached pictures)
  • Enforced SELinux support (see attached picture)
  • New: Camera; built-in app (Snap) and 3rd-party apps (Thanks to @torukk) *)
    *) Snap is only working with main camera! If you switch to the so called "selfie" camera, the app crashes and can't be restarted any more. If that happens, you have to clear the app storage (long press app -> app info -> clear storage). OpenCamera is working in both modes.

These things are NOT working (don't ask!)
  • Encryption
  • FM-Radio (not included)
Maybe some more things are not working.

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.

Im having troubles with TWRP too
TWRP installation:
  1. Shutdown the device completely and wait about 10 seconds.
  2. Press volume up and connect usb cable until led becomes blue.
  3. Enter this command in a terminal window:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    (Where "recovery.img" is the real name of the TWRP image file)
  4. Disconnect usb cable
  5. Press power and volume down to enter TWRP.
    Please don't ask how TWRP works, this is not the right place for questions like this!
All this is only working if your devices bootloader is unlocked.
If not or if you don't know what this is and how to do that, please search the web for how-to's, this is not the right place for questions like this!

Are you sure that you've installed los15.1? Because this version IS rooted! Every newer version (los17.1 or los18.1) is NOT rooted.
Thanks for getting back, reinstalled several times - it is 15.1. I have chosen this version because of stability declared and root needed.. Any more clues, please?..

Hi, first and most important: Thank you very much for making this possible, I kept monitoring the progress of this rom from beginning, I was so desperate for an oreo rom for my little z5c. Second: I'm sorry if this was asked before but is the camera the same as the stock one? in terms of quality? and should I restore the TA partition after flashing your rom or can I "live" without that? Thanks again for your effort with this rom, still a good phone :)

Cheers.

No. The original Sony stock ROM uses some secret stuff in TA partition that can't be used by a custom ROM.
and should I restore the TA partition after flashing your rom or can I "live" without that?
You can live without that, because restoring the TA partition is useless for custom ROM's.

Thanks for answering , I really do appreciate the effort you and your team put into making this rom, I remember it was bothering you for a long time to make the camera and sms work. I'm super glad to see all that work paid off. Also Oreo seems to me to be more than enough for anything one might need ( functionality - performance - design ) so I'm perfectly satisfied. I'll keep testing with it and if some issues occur, I'll report here :)

Thanks again and cheers.

No problem, I don't mind being on older version ( security patch + older android ). I have different philosophy for updates and such but I won't bore you ( or anyone ) with the details. Again, thanks very much for the rom and for replies. Cheers.

P.S. also thanks for the alternative builds ( 7.1.1 thread ), really appreciate that too.

Have you had any progress with this?

No; I had to set it down for a while, and haven't had time yet to pick it back up. In the meantime I've been happily using stock Sony firmware with both VoLTE + VoWiFi. But I want to find time to start poking at this again. I will probably have to start over from scratch using the notes I wrote here, because I honestly can't remember at this point (after all the time that has gone by) where I left off, or what my workflow was that I came up with to produce a build of 15.1 that has at least working VoLTE. (Though I probably still have a copy kicking around of the 15.1 build I came up with that has working VoLTE, if that would be useful/helpful to you.)

Yes, if you read my other posts, you'll see that I called out how previous builds of LOS for Z3+/Z5 family could never have had working IMS/VoLTE. Kang-ing of Qualcomm IMS userland blobs from Sony ROMs was woefully incomplete.

I realize that at this point Oreo is too old to be attractive to users as a third-party ROM, at least as long as usable Android 10/11 builds exist. Still, I think it is important that the IMS puzzle gets solved on Oreo first, because from what I've gathered, Oreo is the last version of Android that supports the older IMS service APIs without any changes. To continue to use these blobs in Android 9/10/11, shims will likely need to be written. (Either that, or IMS blobs from other phone model stock ROMs that are written for Android 9+ and are also compatible with the MSM8994 modem will need to be substituted in.) But before we get to writing shims, we should make sure there isn't anything else we have missed...making sure it runs in Oreo correctly is a good way of doing that.

    Aren't you spreading yourself thin by also trying to maintain the Oreo version, along with Nougat & Android 10?
    The answer is quite simple:
    • los14.1 (N) is as stable as possible and development seems to be stopped.
    • los17.1 (Q) does not work stable enough at this device and I don't know how to fix that. And the memory issue (running out of memory) is still not fixed.
    • The sources of los15.1 (O) are as stable as possible. Why shouldn't I try to make this build better than before (camera)?
    7
    I'm now focussing on the network and outgoing call problem
    After some weeks trying to fix one of these problems I have to say that I'm not able to do so!

    I don't know enough about object orientated programming (c++ and java) to even know where to search and I don't want to end every day frustrated by that.

    So I've decided to stop every development on LineageOS 15.1 (and higher)!

    I'm sorry about that... :(
    6
    This is still a good device. I don't want another one. :)
    Same here!

    I've been at some phone dealers the past week to have a look to other/newer devices and I talked with many people about that and what I want and need!
    ;)
    The first idea was a xz2c (or much cheaper!) a xz1c. But everybody told me not to buy one of these devices! They aren't as good as older devices, like our z5c!
    The second idea was (don't laugh!) an iPhone 8! A friend of mine gave me his used iPhone 6 to play around with it.
    But, that's not my world!
    • I can't get access to the filesystem!
    • I can't copy a file from/to my computer simply by connecting the device via usb cable. I always have to use this fuc*** piece of malware named iTunes to copy something (only pictures i.e.)
    So I decided to stay with my z5c as long as it will live! :good:
