This is a community port of SailfishOS to Moto Z Play (addison), based on LineageOS 13.0.

Status
Version: alpha
Works: graphics, sound, mobile data and calls, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, camera (only photos)
Known not to work yet: video recording and playing
Unsupported: fingerprint sensor, Moto Mods software (but I will try to support keyboard mod when it's out)

Installation
Since there are no LineageOS 13.0 builds for the device, I currently embedded stripped custom build into Sailfish OS zip, so Lineage OS doesn't need to be installed separately. You can have any other ROM installed and switch between Sailfish OS/that ROM by flashing boot partition backup. Beware that the stock ROM has forced encryption for /data partition, so you either need to install LineageOS or modified stock firmware if you want to boot to Android as well.
  1. Make sure your data partition is decrypted (may require formating userdata partition from fastboot)
  2. Boot TWRP recovery
  3. Backup your current boot partition
  4. Flash sailfishos-addison-release-2.1.0.11-test.zip

Contributors:
  • mosen - thanks for helping me to get the device
  • Alberto97 - LineageOS 13.0 device tree
  • piggz - Xiaomi Redmi 4 port (used as reference for many things, as device has the same SoC)
Also thanks to mal, #sailfishos-porters and Sailfish OS community.

Yes, able to attach BT keyboard and send files to another phone, connecting other devices is untested though.

flashing old boot partition image and it booted up lineageos as expected

TheKit:

I am following this as I also have a Moto Z Play.
I would like to help as much as I can, but I do not have much programming skills.
