Hi there,

first thank you for this fine release. I am interested in installing this rom but have a few questions which could also be interesting for other users.

1. I am currently using LineageOS 15.1, can I flash this rom directly after a clean wipe or do I need to flash the stock firmware first? I have read that flashing stock firmware could be dangerous regarding loosing the IMEI.
2. I have installed TWRP 3.2.1 and was trying to do a backup of EFS and persist partions. Only the EFS partition is selectable for backup, persist seems to be missing.
3. Is the stock camera working fine or is there a long delay when starting like in other 15.1 roms?

After that follow the instructions in the thread.
Good luck!

So wasn't a waste of time trying out the crappy Stock Oreo after all. Thanks

It's recommended to backup fully working EFS/persist before messing with 64bit TWRP/ROMs.
For the unknown reason, reverting to stock (using fastboot) with anything 64bit at least once installed (even TWRP) wipes the IMEI.

Idk about the camera, but I'd like to ask the same as I'm also interested in trying LOS based on Pie.

SafetyCheck is certified? No lags and stuttering?

At first I thought the camera was working fine. There is no big startup delay when starting the camera app (just the normal second). Flashlight, front camera and video recording also worked for me.

But when I am trying to take a picture from within a messenger app my phone crashes or something. The same thing happens If a take more than one picture. The camera app seems to crash and the whole phone becomes unusable. I only can see a black screen or my lock screen.

Have you looked at the backup options of TWRP recovery? There is a checkbox for each partition you want to backup. Just check EFS and include it in your backup (I assume you also want to backup some other partitions)
