Official LineageOS 14.1 build arrives on Xperia Z5 (Android 7.1.1 Nougat)

The official LineageOS 14.1 custom ROM is now available to download for the Sony Xperia Z5. LineageOS 14.1 is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and provides a close to stock experience, for those that don’t like the official Sony software. If you want to find out more information, head over to XDA. Hopefully, this is a good sign that the Xperia Z5 will receive official LineageOS 15, which is based on Android Oreo, especially as the handset won’t get any Oreo love officially from Sony.

Thanks Phil G!

    I will switch to lineage when they roll out Oreo for Xperia Z5. Right now, all they have done is achieve parity with Sony.

  • Can someone tell me how to root my Z5. With my Z2 i dind´t have to face that DRM keys problem. And please, be kind! Nor everyone have time to search every forum topic and belive me, i´ve done all of that but can´t fine anything about backup the DRM keys!
    Thanks a lot!

  • Ther9reatSkull I used this to root mine * I know this is for XZ5C but it’s the same steps .

  • Thanks :)

    I’ve been using Lineage on my Z5 for a few days now. It works well and having the latest security patch is a nice touch too. Official Lineage builds are also available for the Z3 Plus.

  • Ther9reatSkull

    Just flashed it and booting :D

  • JC

    Does this work for Z5 Premium too?

  • Ziggy

    Is Z5 Compact also supported by this?

  • phil g

    Yes. They have official builds for the Z5 compact.

  • Alex Schwarz

    Why nobody wants to port or make MIUI9 for Xperia Z5? To be honest, I’m pretty sick of Sony’s near-stock UI, I want a nice gimmicky UI like one of those chinese phone makers…

  • phil g

    There are no official builds for the Z5 premium. Though there might be unofficial ones floating around somewhere. I would check the XDA forums.

    how install?

  • Pixelado

    Exactly. Official nougat is pretty good on my Z5P, though I always root my phones to get rid of bloatware.

    I’ve heard 6.0 was better on the Z5 series. Is that true?

  • Pixelado

    As far as I know, backing up your TA partition is the way to save your unique DRM keys, and it’s a pretty straightforward procedure with Flashtool.

  • This is embarassing if you ask me

    version 32.4.A.1.54. not available for any Z5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
