    I did everything like the tutorial, but when i try to reboot on recovery mode, it shows an Android lying down with a red triangle right above it, like i don’t have any kind of TWRP on the Phone, is it possible that my z3c is not compatible with the twrp?

    Hi @fernando_bravi_trombini, to conclude if the TWRP compatibility is a problem, you have to tell me which TWRP are you using on your phone.

    I will recommend you to use nailyk’s TWRP and Lineage OS 14.1 ROM for the Z3C.

    Thank you so much for this! I use the ROM for nearly two days now and experienced now major problems until now. However I came across the issue that after the wiping in TWRP the ROM installer aborted with error 7 complaining the device name was “.”
    I found someone with the same issue and the solution here:
    http://en.miui.com/thread-334543-1-1.html
    So I unzipped the ROM, removed the line starting with “asert” and packed it again, worked after that.
    Just a last question: as this is a kind of nightly build the auto update does not work, right?
    When I try to initiate a Lineage OS Update manually an error pops up that there was trouble finding the update, check internet connection.

    @mrdobiwe-de This is an unofficial Lineage OS build from individual developer(s) and not yet an OFFICIAL NIGHTLY Lineage OS, So, you won’t get any OTA updates on this Lineage OS ROM. You need to manually download and upgrade the latest Lineage OS build if available.

    If you already have a TWRP installed then I think you don’t need to unlock the bootloader.
    You can just flash the Lineage OS ROM using the existing TWRP.

    Hello,
    I tried to upgrade to the new OS LineageOS 14.1 on the Sony Xperia Z3C with preinstalled TWRP from another source (TWRP 3.0.2-0) and with root. I have a locked bootloader.
    I met when installing with a phone versioning issue. My is the D8503 above. TWRP reports a Z3 model error. And it all ends.
    Do you advise me what to do or wait for a new version from Nailyk where will this be fixed?
    Thank you for the advice.

    Hello,
    I met when installing with a phone versioning issue. My is the D8503 above. TWRP reports a Z3 model error. And it all ends.

    When you install a ROM from TWRP it checks the model number the TWRP is built with and not the model number shown on Android OS. I will recommend you to install a TWRP built by nailyk and retry flashing the same ROM and see if you go through!!

    Hello,
    Do you advise me what to do or wait for a new version from Nailyk where will this be fixed?
    Thank you for the advice.

    This not a ROM issue and hence this may never be fixed in the upcoming versions.
    Otherwise you can modify the updater-script in the ROM zip file and install it forcibly.
