So it’s been a rough start for me, stepping into the modern world with a modern phone that has a/b partitioning and was Android 8.0+. I’ve built dozens of roms for dozens of phones, some that were even unsupported, and to God be the glory, I was moderately successful, but these modern phones have been a different story. My first attempt with the Xperia XA2 Ultra ended up hard bricked. Then, I built a pie version of AOKP, which did boot, but would immediately crash after getting to the home screen.
Today, however, was off to a much better start. I successfully tested my engineering build of LineageOS 16.0 (pie) for my XA2 Ultra (discovery). Everything seems to work well, and you are welcome to try it out. Keep in mind, though, it is an engineering build as opposed to a user build. Also note that this is for the 50.1.x firmware variants.
Granted, a lineage build is already available, and most of the work was done by Luke. I like to compile a build on my own, though, to make sure my system is set up properly and that the source material does work before I get started on my own roms.
Now to get back to that AOKP build…. Or should I start on a Resurrection Remix build instead?
Linux – keep it simple.
