"Manual" flashing through FKU has the exact same effect. SU seems to also need flashing the Kernel. What am I missing? Flash a different Kernel beforehand somehow??


EDIT: Nexus 6, latest Patches, never tempered with it in any way.

EDIT2: I managed to get into recovery mode and when I try to "apply update from SD card" it just says its unable to mount sdcard... Guess its not gonna happen ^^

What TWRP version, and what root?
Also what ROM and it's version.

Guess I'll give up for now. Errors everywhere. In 6 hours I havent encountered any tutorial that was working exactly as described. Apparently with 7.1.1 a bit has changed and I cant get fastboot to flash anything - I can neither get TWRP running nor install the Kernel that way. Some suggest it can be a cable, USB port or Win 10 issue - the first 2 I tried switching but I can't do much about my OS right now

I'm gonna first post in other threads before I might come back. Sry but for now I'll have to get rid of the app...

Try minimal fastboot/adb. The N6 is no long supported and I suspect the new versions will no longer work with this device.

Thanks I gave it one more try and it actually worked. For anyone else trying this on a Nexus 6:

I downloaded the 1.0 version from here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=2317790
(didnt need extra drivers)
Set usb debugging mode on the phone

adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock (this will ask you to wipe your phone, so restart the phone afterwards, let it reinstall everything and set debugging mode again)
download zip on the phone

adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

and then go into recovery mode(no restart after flashing) and flash the previously downloaded zip

I have a problem with NightShift. A couple last kernel versions, the NightShift does not turn OFF in the morning, whether it's "Auto Sunrise/Sunset" or "Manual times". The feature turns on perfectly, but doesn't turn OFF

Anyone have an ETA on a Franco kernel for Nexus 6 that can replace the LineageOS 15.1 kernel? I assume/hope one will be available?

Currently no custom kernels are supported for 15.1 so there is no ETA.

It not true that we (LineageOS) don't support custom kernels. It's just that there aren't any compatible ones available.

Would have quoted you from the LOS thread but I guess I misinterpreted what you said. It sounded much like it is a lot harder to make a custom kernel for 15.1 (than 14) and thus almost impossible.

@Elektroschmock correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the reason there aren't custom kernels for 15.1 isn't as much a matter of difficulty as a matter of instability as changes are made to LOS base, and therefore LOS-based ROMs, which affect kernel compatibility. Not intentionally breaking compatibility, but being unable to avoid doing so to make needed or desired changes. I think as get further into development, kernel compatibility will stabilize. Or I could be missing the whole thing entirely.
