Sony Xperia X F5121 - suzu

Device brand : Sony

Supported Android versions : Nougat, Oreo, Pie (?) including Sony AOSP

Custom rom supported :
LineageOS 14.1 and 15.1 : unofficial and not maintained
Others :

OmniROM 8.1 : official and not maintained

Sony AOSP 7.1.2, 8.1 : official and partially maintained

So far, I would recommend porting /e/ for this device to Oreo as Sony AOSP 8.1, OmniROM 8.1 and unofficial LineageOS 15.1 versions are already available.

Thanks !

I’m very interested in having this phone working on /e/. The Sony Xperia Compact line of phones is amazing in my opinion!

Reading the different xda threads related to different Android custom roms, it appears two of them have quit good users feedback : OmniROM 7.1.2 and Unofficial LOS 15.1
Ports on kernel 4.4 and 4.9 are mentioned to show lack of stability.

I am also very interested on having this phone supported by /e/.
Personally owner of a X compact (loire platform)

No official LineageOS support for this device

Yes, we already know this.
I think some /e/ phones supported today are not officially supported by LineageOS.

When i builded my unofficial roms for this Unofficial /e/ Builds for Lineage Supported Phones I found only Google Pixel XL 2 - “taimen” and HTC One A9 (International GSM) - “hiaeuhl” supported by /e/ but not supported by LineageOS, maybe more of them, but this 2 100%.

The Xperia X (suzu) is still actively supported by other operating systems:

Sailfish OS:

Ubuntu Touch:

Having /e/ support might be a nice, strategic move. it could strengthen the /e/ community by connecting to other communities interested in privacy conscious phones. And some capable developers.


Since September 2nd, Suzu and Kugo are officially supported by LOS :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Last but not least, could you please re-format this request to look like this one ? Thanks !

I had to test a new thermal setup, nothing better than an Android build :smile_cat:

:warning: I don’t own this device and couldn’t test this ROM! Please consider it is for experimental testing only! :warning:

Please post back, if everything is OK I might consider publishing a dedicated thread.

Hello, I am terribly confused to have taken so much time to try to install your build on my suzu.

But I have tried yesterday and it seems to work basically.

Would it be possible for you to build a new UNOFFICIAL build based on tag 1.9 ?

I will be in position to perform more tests to see what is working or not.

Thanks for your feedback!
I will attempt a new build, expect it in a couple of weeks.

Thanks @smu44 !

I will install it and perform some tests before the end of this week.

If booting succesful, should we open a new thread in Unofficial Builds ?

Please perform some basic tests first (telephony, camera, GPS, …).
Then, yes, I’ll be happy to open a new thread for this device :slight_smile:

Hi, I have performed a few tests. Basically, it is working :
Phone call: OK
Camera: NOK but was working on 1.3, Open Camera is OK
WiFi: OK
Audio via jack: OK (after Parameters \ Sound \ Volume of multimedia contents)
GPS: can work

Tested with TWRP version 3.3.1-0

Thanks @christophe14 ! :smiley_cat:
I think that the Camera problem it with the app itself, as it is untouched from /e/ I don’t know how to make it work :frowning:

I cannot tell for sure but this bug affected cameras on e-1.9 only and was device specific.

The bug is reported fixed in e-1.10.

I suggest @christophe14 that if you install the proposed fix 'app-debug_pixel_fix.apk` mentioned here

you could confirm / dismiss my suggestion, and possibly have a working /e/OS Camera.
