LineageOS 15.1 for Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact

BETA RELEASE

This release is a beta release. It works very well and can be used as a daily driver. Please check the lists about what works or not below and check what needs testing and feedback.

FEATURES
  • Signed with dev keys
  • FDroid preinstalled
  • FDroid Privilege Extension
  • Bugs included

DOWNLOAD

You can download the latest release here. Check the ChangeLog below for firmware requirements!

INSTALLATION

Put the zip file of the ROM on you sdcard or internal store and boot into recovery. If you use my TWRP recovery, you should use that one to flash the ROM.

Make sure you select Zip signature verification.

This will make sure the zip file has not been altered!

KNOWN ISSUES
  • IMS support is missing (we are working on it, but it isn't trivial)

HARDWARE
  • Phone doesn't work well with Mifare NFC tokens
  • IMS does not fully work for some carriers yet

UPGRADE FIRMWARE
  • Grab the Sony Stock firmware using e.g. XPeriFrim. You should always flash the firmware matching the LOS build.
  • Grab newflasher and put it in the same folder as the firmware files.
  • Read the newflasher original post on XDA for general instructions!
  • Remove the follwing from the folder so they won't get flashed:
    • all *.ta files (keep the one in the boot/ directory)
    • cache*.sin
    • fotakernel*.sin
    • kernel*.sin
    • system*.sin
    • userdata*.sin
    • vendor*.sin
  • Turn off your phone
  • Hold the volume down button and attach it via USB to your system till you see LED turning green
  • Run newflasher from within this directory to flash the remaining files
    You can say yes to the first optional step, in case you dont have working drivers installed.
    Skip the second optional step (dumping of trim area), it's useless if your bootloader is unlocked already and takes a long time.

Google Apps

You can download and install the Google Apps from opengapps.org. You need ARM64 and 8.x. I suggest to *always* use the pico package. If you need additional apps you find them in the Play Store.

Privacy Guard for GApps

I wouldn't run GApps without Privcy Guard. Here is what you need to do:

Go to: Settings -> Security & location -> Privacy Guard

Open the advanced menu (3 dots) and select: Enable by default and Show built-in apps.

Search for Google Play Services and turn it on by tapping the entry. A long press will give additional options. There are more Google Apps you should turn it on and revoke permissions like the syncing stuff.

FDroid

This ROM comes with FDroid and the Privilege Extension pre-installed.

MicroG

Doesn't provide API level 27 builds yet ... will probably available in future with signature spoofing.

Simple Mobile Tools

This is a collection of really awesome Open Source and AD-free Apps! Don't get confused by the name! Especially the Calendar and Gallery app are really good! If you like his stuff, support him by buying the Simple Thanks app.

You can find them in FDroid and the Play Store.

Known Issues

Some apps don't work (Gardenscapes, Die Zeit, ...)

When an app is installed then it should ask for Permissions on the first startup. However for some apps this doesn't happen. To fix it you need to go to Settings -> Apps & Notifications -> See all apps -> Select the App -> Permissions. Now manually activate the required permission, normally the Storage Permission is missing in that case!

Thank you so much man. I heard you mention micro g on the other thread. Do you know if I'll work with LineageOS 15.1? I really don't want to use GApps.

I will provide a ROM with MicroG, but not on the first release. MicroG needs to compile their stuff with API level 27 first ...

I think it would be preferrable to not ship any version of GApps with the ROM. This way, everyone can install what they want.
