Announcement from npjohnson: LineageOS 17.1 Nightlies for the Moto g7!
LineageOS logo
Moto g7

- Your warrenty is now void.
- You have been warned.
- Use at your own risk.

This is the Official Lineage OS 17.1 thread for the Motorola Moto g7, codename river.

How to Install:
Please follow the instructions on our Official LineageOS Wiki page here.

If you don't follow these instructions, please don't expect support here. We also don't support 3rd party addons (Magisk/XPosed/Dolby/Viper/etc.), so please don't seek support if you use these.

Known Bugs:
  • None.

  • Official Lineage OS builds for river ship with full Project Treble compatibility! Flash GSI's to your heart's content after flashing Lineage. Please don't report GSI bugs here, report them instead to the GSI's maker.
    Technical details on our Treble implementation:
    Treble is enabled with VNDK29, and VNDK runtime enforcement. VNDK runtime enforcement means that unlike most "ported treble" you'll see, ours is just as it would be from the OEM, and can run GSIs. without need for hacks or additional flashable zips. We relabeled /oem to /vendor (as /oem isn't wasn't used in custom ROMs anyway). To use a GSI, flash official Lineage, then flash your GSI, it's that simple! Flashing a factory image will likely write over /oem and remove the mock vendor image.

VoLTE working?

Edit 4/3: Like the unofficial releases, still no Wifi calling on Fi. Would be great if we could get that working.

Just an imporant FYI - ICYDK Community

At the time of this writing - there are some signing issues related to LineageOS 10 Roms (including river), so the link provided will take you to only version 16. Rest assured though, the team is working on it. The above link to android police, explained it all for me, hopefully for you as well. A screenshot is included in case the above link with the reference points disappear. Thank you for npjohnson for taking the time to support this. At last the river gets Android 10

LineageOS 17.1 works wonderfully however the Trebuchet Launcher does not seem to work as it crashes even upon first boot but any other launcher works perfectly.
The FM Radio does not work at all unfortunately, neither on LineageOS 16 nor 17.1, I hope that gets resolved soon.
Other than that, great work!

Very great to see this release. I have 2 questions:
- 1. Does this pass safetynet by just installing? I mean I don't want to install Magisk and Magisk hide
- 2. Does it work without any risks with the Februrary 2020 security update? I heard that if you are in that security update and then make a wrong move with formatting a partition there is no way to recover a brick / no blankflash available?

Thank you in advance!

Almost full Pixel Experience
No issues so far, running smooth and fast. I feel that this device is running faster than my Stock Pixel 3a XL. Magisk is working, so I'm using it as a daily driver from now on. Thanks a lot

This sounds nuts but this actually boots on the Moto G7 Play too. This tells me that 64bit builds can be ported to our device. The only thing that would need to be changed (I think) are touchscreen drivers, and gpio keys. I was able to boot into LOS recovery by changing river to channel in the default prop and flashing it. The screen is split and mostly unreadable but it is recognized by adb. Flashing the dtbo allows the boot logo to display properly with some flickering. Everything after that is still split however.

Given this info; Would you have any interest in trying to build for us too?

Also, would you have any idea how to resize a vendor partition? I think if I flash the vendor.img, it might fix the touchscreen. Right now twrp says it's bigger than my target device. (Which is a load of crap, I have 22gb free.)

Phone calls on Google Fi do not work when connected to T-Mobile, only Sprint

Is the upgrade procedure from 16.0 to 17.1 supposed to erase my data ?

Is there any specific procedure to install magisk?

So from what I've experienced so far, calling doesn't work when using Google Fi on T-Mobile and location also doesn't work either on any app. OTAs also fail via the LineageOS Updater and the FM Radio is broken too
