Could Sony Xperia XZ1 (lilac) be made official?

Please :wink:

A few reasons why I think this would be a great idea, and why it would not be hard to do:

  1. XZ1 (poplar) is already officially supported
  2. XZ1 Compact (lilac) uses much of the same code
  3. lilac device tree and vendor blobs also come from the same developer as poplar, who is very active in fixing and updating the code
  4. IodéOS 4 seems to run very well on lilac. The problems I have with my unofficial builds are mostly caused by the fact my builds are unofficial.
  5. lilac is the last of Sony’s waterproof, dustproof ‘compact’ phones that has a headphone socket and is a really great device.

I would be happy to help with this. I have a couple of spare devices that I could use for testing, and for debugging any device-specific problems that may crop up.


Is it a cursory error missing the Compact in the title?

It is - sorry!

Sadly, I don;t think this will happen - see point 1. in this post:

No problem, just caught my eye. And yes, it’s a shame. But I understand the reasoning. IIt’s not just getting it released once, but maintain it! Still would like to see it happen :wink:
