Does this mean that GPS is working again on pollux_windy devices? If I find the time I definitely will give this a try over the weekend!

Which repos did you use to build 0425? Is the nougat kernel you linked the one that works for pie? This roomservice cooks a pollux build that is stuck on the boot animation.

Hi, just a quick first report:
did a complete wipe then installed this ROM >> reboot into recovery >> flash openGapps Pico build 20190426 + Magisk 18.1 >> reboot to system
did basic setup (Google + Lineage) without restoring anything from cloud etc.
installed some GPS testing app >> did a complete A-GPS delete / refresh cycle
Got a GPS fix after approx 6 minutes (yippiiiieee!!! Finally)
Switch off GPS, shut down GPS Test, then repeated GPS Test >> fix 10 seconds!!
So this is great.
Then tested a few other things. Here's what works for me and what doesn't:

Code:
- Boot : Ok
- GApps : OpenGApps Nano Ok
- FOTA Recovery : Ok
- WiFi : Ok
- Bluetooth : Ok
- WiFi Hotspot : n/a
- RIL - Phone - Data : n/a
- GPS : Ok (Yessss!)
- Camera : NO (see below)
- Camcorder : didn't test
- MicroSD : Ok
- Accelerometer : NO
- Compass : NO
- Gyroscope : NO
- AOSP sensors : ??
- FM Radio : NO (I'm aware you wrote that)
- Microphone : didn't test
- Audio & external audio : Ok
- Bluetooth audio : didn't test
- NFC : didn't test
- Kernel : ??
- Graphics : Ok
- 3D Rendering : didn't test
- Clock : Ok
- Offline Charging : Ok
- SEPolicies : didn't test
What else is not working is display rotation: it is fixed to landscape mode (with one exception, see below). This probably is due to the fact that most sensors apparently don't work here: no compass, no gyroskope etc. I'm using "Smart Tools" app. All tools that are using the device's sensors are dead. Tried to calibrate, but no result.
Camera isn't working either: it immediately crashes as soon as I click the shutter (no matter whether I use front or back camera). Tried to get a logcat (using catlog app), hope it contains what's needed to look into this.
Regarding the camera there are two more issues:
1 - the camera shutter button is halfway hidden behind the navigation bar (see screenshot) (see update below)
2 - if I start the camera the tablet's display changes to portrait mode, and then it stays there until I shut down the tablet
-----
sorry for not mentioning earlier that apart from those issues this ROM makes a very good impression: very fast and responsive. Thanks a lot for taking care of this!!!

Will return now to LOS 15.1 as I need a fully working device this afternoon. Let me know if you need more info, probably can do some more testnig tomorrow

Update (after being back at 15.1 official):
All sensors working again, incl. display rotation, compass, water level etc. ;
Also Camera is working fine again, but I just realized that also in this version the shutter button is halfway hidden, as can be seen in the screenshot. So this apparently is a generic (minor) flaw...

Hello, first of all I feel bad for not being able to try and give my feedback of this ROM right now (I use the tablet for college and right now it is not convenient to "experiment" with it) however I would sincerely congratulate the developer of it, I never thought to see another ROM on this Tablet that I liked since I bought. Sorry for my bad English, I will be closely following the development of the ROM and when possible I'll try it

[OT?] Need help installing this ROM.
I'm currently using Official Lineage OS 15.1 build on pollux, and want to try this ROM.

But I just noticed that I dont have TWRP installed (its missing) on my tablet. I had TWRP installed in FOTA partition, but now its missing. Using Reboot to recovery option gives black screen after sony logo. Same results when manually rebooted after power off using vol buttons.

I don't know what happened, I've been using Lineage builds both unofficial and official from years on this tablet. And twrp in fota partition too, but never encountered this issue.

Don't have access to pc rn to try fastboot boot recovery.img, is there anything else i can try?

Tried Xperia Recovery app from play store which can flash recovery to fota using root but no help (used to work earlier) and dd if=/temp/rec.img of=/dev/block/...... In terminal, but didn't worked
