LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Working
Everything, but
Known issues
  • Selinux permissive
  • VoLTE/VoWifi not working
  • Camera only shows up to 8MP
  • NFC is enabled on all models, even on the ones without it (please report device model)
  • Dualsim is enabled on all models, even on the ones without it (please report device model)
  • Screen flickering when using fingerprint (That's normal and how optical fingerprint sensors work. Flickering doesn't happen on stock I know, but that's due to poor UI implement from lineage site)
  • TWRP can't decrypt your data

Reporting Bugs
  • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

FAQ
  • Can I use this ROM to boot other GSIs?
    You can but I won't provide any support. If you are stuck in a bootloop or something does not work, you have to look for a fix yourself. Here is a list of things that will probably be broken when using a GSI:
    • Fingerprint
  • Fingerprint doesn't work anymore after flashing a new build/installing magisk/etc.!
    Redo your fingerprints.
  • I can't enroll any fingerprints!
    Turn off night mode/lower night mode intensity.

I have some question
1. TWRP can't decrypt your data: can i backup the rom? (system, recovery,boot, data,etc...)
2.Camera preview is broken for 4:3 aspect ratio: Does it affect image quality?
3.Selinux permissive: what is this? Is that important?
Wait for your stable version

Works well. Unlike v 16 it installs on my russian version of A70. Gapps installs and work well too.

Thanks for great work.

And what about GApps? Do they need to be reinstalled when upgrading? Is there even a version available for Android 10?
