CM-14.0 Install Guide
Note: LineageOS for Galaxy Express is provided with no warranty. You are installing this software at your own risk. You may be violating your warranty.
Download LOS-14.1 and OpenGapps zips and put in /sdcard
Before you install LOS-14.1: Preparation (First three are optional. If you want to start fresh, these can be skipped)
- Install AppBak from Market, run it and save a list of all your apps.
- Install SMS Backup and Restore from Market, run it and backup your SMS history.
- Install Call Logs Backup and Restore from Market, run it and backup your call log history.
- Boot into TWRP recovery. Make a full backup. You will need this backup later if you decide to go back to your previous ROM and data.
- Use TWRP Recovery from the attachments for now!!
- Warning: Only use the recovery from the attachments to flash LOS-14.1. Otherwise, you risk bricking your phone!
- Wipe system, data, dalvik and cache. (For clean installation)
- Flash lineage-14*.zip.
- Flash gapps*.zip.
- Reboot phone.
- After you setup your Google account, reinstall the three apps from Market in order to restore most of your apps, call log and SMS history.
- Warning: Do not restore backup data of system apps!
- If you restore a bad backup with cached settings in telephony.db in data/data/com.*.*.telephony it can break MMS.
- It seems that restoring backups can also break Calendar sync.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EVERYONE HERE : PICO GAPPS IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR EVERY ROM , DO NOT USE NANO, MICRO AND OTHER VARIANTS OF GAPPS TO AVOID ANY ISSUES LIKE CRASHES AND DPI INCOMPATIBILITY ***
Upgrades from previous versions of LOS-14.1 are the same process as install, except you do not need to wipe anything. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to even wipe cache and dalvik-cache when upgrading between LOS-14.1 versions. You only need to wipe if you are doing a major upgrade, switching to a different ROM entirely, or attempting to fix bugs caused by bad backups or corrupt app data.
