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 restores 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 our Gerrit Code Review.

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */

Frequently Asked Questions
  • I've been asked to provide logcat, how do I do that?
    You can either root and use an app like MatLog, or if boot logcat is required? You will need adb logcat from a PC. Here's a simple guide from the LineageOS Wiki https://wiki.lineageos.org/logcat.html
  • My lockscreen crashes on reboot, what should I do to fix it?
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/le-...crash-t3918911
  • I don't see an option for call recording, what's going on?
    Only the stock dialer app supports it. If you install a Gapps package that overwrites the stock dialer app? It won't have call recording as well. Only the included dialer app of LineageOS is compatible to call recording since it needs to be a ROM implementation and I haven't seen a Play store app that adds support for custom ROM call recording. Please also note that call recording is blocked for countries and carriers that have laws against any form of call recording.
  • What is Power-off Alarm?
    This feature allows you to set an alarm clock with the stock clock app included with LineageOS and then turn off the phone, and it will boot up a minute before the designated alarm time and then properly alarm. It works with the device either powered off and also offline charging.
    Using a clock app from OpenGapps Stock or from the Play store is not compatible to custom ROM implementations of power-off alarm... So consider this your heads up if you didn't know that already... As I am not responsible for anyone being late for their wedding/work/school/vacation if you tried a non-stock clock app with your LeEco msm8996 device powered off.
  • What apps are recommended with the Open Source ConsumerIR?
    (WIP! Was dropped from builds until selinux neverallow policy compatibility is fixed)
    Zaza Remote and Mi Remote work great. Smart Remote for Sharp TV also works. I'd recommend avoiding Peel Universal Smart Remote as it hijacks the lockscreen with ads...
  • Pls sir, I can't connect to my network or IMS/VoLTE doesn't work! What can I try?
    Please try my TWRP flashable zip for APN settings update from Google. It's not easy to get APN updates pushed to LineageOS, so this is the easiest way for me to get network fixes out to users. After flashing it? Please reboot to system and then go into Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile Internet > Advanced > Access Point Names > "..." menu button > reset to default.
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/lin...0and%20Tweaks/
  • What is the difference between the official LineageOS builds and unofficial?
    Unofficial test builds are builds I put out to test changes before I push them to the Official builds... So please stick with Official builds if you want to play it safe... But if you wish to help test and provide feedback on changes before they go official? Unofficial test builds are the best way to do so.
  • Where is the QuickCharge toggle?
    Settings > System > Advanced > LeEco Settings
  • The rear facing camera won't focus, what should I try?
    Please go into Settings > System > Advanced > LeEco Settings, and then enable the focus fix. You may need to restart any open camera app or potentially reboot the system in order for the focus fix values to work.... If that doesn't resolve it? Please try EUI ROM... If it still won't focus? I'm sorry, but your hardware camera actuator is defective and you either need to try the Le Max 2 rear camera magnet trick (please Google it) or replace the rear camera hardware.
  • Why is our widevine level only L3?
    Unfortunately Widevine L1 failed to work correctly on X2 and zl1/0... It would report we have L1 hardware support but vp9.secure and avc.secure codecs were failing to render, thus apps that used L1 like Amazon Prime would error out and revert to L3 and worst case scenario apps like Vudu would crash.
    I haven't seen any fixes for those codec issues, so I gave up on it as L3 works fine.
    Also, Netflix HD will never work on LeEco devices as they never got them "Netflix certified" which sounds like a money-grab move since L1 is all they should need. For example, Asus Zenfone 5z is L1 certified but not "Netflix certified" just like us and they don't get the option to stream in HD.
    This explains it a lot better
    https://androidpcreview.com/netflix-hd-android-tv-box/
  • My device doesn't show any apps in the Play Store what should I do?
    https://lineageos.org/Google-Play-Certification/
  • exfat does not work on LineageOS, what is up with that?
    LeEco Le Max 2 does not ship with exfat licensing so we are not allowed to incorporate it in LineageOS Le Max 2 builds. This was tested by both CrisBalGreece and I. If by chance there is an OFFICIAL EUI ROM build that includes exfat? Please let me know so I can test it as well... Here is the LineageOS device charter requirements on exfat
    https://github.com/LineageOS/charter...#exfat-support

KNOWN BUGS
  • WiFi calling does not work (waiting on official OP3 pie RIL to fix)
  • Dual-role USB does not work (our Type-C port can't detect if it should offer the option to host data transfer, charge the other device, or charge while using Aux out).
  • Taking a photo during 4K UHD video recording produces a photo with green static instead of a photo. This bug only happens in Snap camera... Google Camera Mod and Open Camera (with Camera API v2 enabled) produces pictures without issue.
  • Screen on Time is usually only around four to five hours (VERY hard to diagnose battery drain issues... Any logcat with references to battery drain or kernel wakelocks will help resolve this)
  • CDLA cell calling has crackling/popping sounds
  • When starting video recording audio crackles for a second
  • Infinity focus not working (for panoramas, AR and some QR code scanners. Infinity focus also doesn't work in EUI ROM hmm...)

Special Thanks
@codeworkx for his major contributions to the LeEco msm8996-common code and kernel and the awesome open source camera HAL
@mosimchah for his contributions to the LeEco msm8996-common code and kernel
@moto999999 for helping the x2 get LAOS 15.1 working. When others left LAOS he helped get the momentum started again.
@infrag for his contributions to x2 such as the multiple audio fixes, LEDs and sorting out the open source camera HAL blobs and assisting with QS Torch
@shivatejapeddi for his contributions to x2 such as finding the fix for QS Torch and the regularly requested VoLTE support XD
@KuranKaname for his contributions to x2 such as helping get Dalvik VM and HWUI sorted out when 14.1 settings didn't work on 15.1, plus his never-ending mission to finding the most optimized code.
@Tortel1210 for his contributions to x2 and helping out with gerrit.
@andr68rus for everything he has contributed to x2. He may have moved to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 (sexy device!) but will be fondly remembered for everything he did for the x2 to make Nougat great. We will finish what you started.
@GalaticStryder for his fix for truly display panel that is better than my fix and his other awesome kernel improvements.
ViSi0Naryy for his contributions to LeEco msm9996-common with testing and contributions with Gerrit
@jabashque for helping fine-tune performance for LeEco msm8996-common devices! LeEco has never been so smooth!
@Lucchetto00 for converting Tortel's devicesettings into LeEco settings and adding QC toggle, plus his method of detecting if a setting exists and whether to display it or not.

...and finally the community. This is for the community, by the community. Give yourselves a pat on the back.

If I missed anyone? Please let me know and I can add them.

Donations
@popeye13 for helping cover my replacement motherboard costs
@Bollex for also helping cover my replacement motherboard costs
@kurtn for also also helping cover my replacement motherboard costs
@xlcashlx for also also also helping cover my replacement motherboard costs
@rbergiex (Robin Vd Berg since I'm unsure on username) for also also also also helping cover my replacement motherboard costs

(If I got your XDA forum usernames wrong please let me know)


Please donate to anyone mentioned above. Note that I do NOT accept donations (only exception to that was to help cover my replacement motherboard costs). I do alright with my full-time job and am financially stable for my family and I do this as a hobby, and receiving donations for my hobby would feel like I'm pressured to deliver more than I can with my limited spare time.

Heyyo, so for the lineage-16.0-20181005-UNOFFICIAL-x2 build? Noteworthy changes:
  • Kernel is rebased on CAF Pie and has reworked Quick Charge code (no more QC bugs) and audio (no more Type-C to 3.5mm headphones orientation bug) from @GalaticStryder and his awesome kernel (we don't have a lot of optimizations on top as we are keeping our kernel as simple as possible, so if you want a fine-tuned kernel? I'd recommend checking out GS's thread)
  • Audio is kanged from gemini (Xiaomi Mi5) and brings with it a lot of changes which should improve audio quality a little
  • Autofocus fix will now be a build.prop implementation. Just need to use the focus fix zips in TWRP for an automatic method, or edit /vendor/build.prop and change/add persist.camera.focus_fix=1 (this change will hopefully be coming to 15.1 as well as I cherry-picked it for Oreo as well)
  • msm_irqbalance to help with the smoothness of the ROM (Google recommends it and even uses it on the Pixel as noted in their
    Identifying Jitter-Related Jank
    article.
  • thermal-engine config from pure marlin (we have had too many complaints about heat, so we will be dropping from the current thermal-engine.conf which allowed the CPU to go up to 79°c at around 75% CPU clock speeds, but now with pure marlin it will cap out around 72°c at 50% clock speeds)
  • CNE, DPM and GPS are rebased on pie blobs (unfortunately, IMS, RIL and QMI are not as we haven't found a pie device with CAP pie blobs that have a compatible modem x12 device stack for us... we may be stuck waiting on OnePlus3 or Mi5 or Zuk2 because Google reworked how IMS/VoLTE works on Pie and that is causing issues for us...)

Testing rom now. Ok for daily driver so far. High cpu usage apps may cause heat though so can just avoid using those for now. Thanks for all your hard work!
