What This Is
This is a personal project to get Lineage OS running on my Pixel 3a XL. I got the idea to build it from this thread of the Pixel 3a . It seems to suffer the same short comings of the 3a version in the link provided.

What's Been Tested
So far tested on T-Mobile (at least) with Nano OpenGAPPS and Stock OpenGAPPS. Camera, wifi, bluetooth, gps are used regularly without issue.

What Was Not Tested
Root
Squeeze sensor

Known Issues
eSIM doesn't work and has been removed
If flashing Gapps, an app downloaded at first-time setup Data Transfer Tools will crash constantly and needs to be uninstalled. This may mean you can't transfer data from an old phone to this one via setup.

Downloads
Unofficial Lineage 16 - TWRP
Unofficial Lineage 16 - FASTBOOT
GAPPS

Installation
TWRP installation: Flash via TWRP and Wipe data
Fastboot Installation:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img && fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img && fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img && fastboot flash system system.img && fastboot -w && fastboot reboot
Thanks

Great work! Can you share your repo? I'd like to keep mine up to date for bonito since that is a blind build for me.

Honestly I synced against Pipyui repos but his is from DU so I guess theirs will work as well.

Well, I tried to install Lineage OS but experienced some issues:

1) Open Gapps Aroma do not get installed, so I relied to Pico (no biggie, just to let others spare the 1.2GB download);

2) After TWRP installation the device is stuck at boot logo.

I started perfectly clean with Google' August factory images.

1) Aroma would be an issue with twrp.

2) did you perform a data wipe? Also, I think you need to be in July vendor.

Yep, I guess so.

No hurry, I'll stick to stock until LOS will be updated to August vendor.

Alright, so thanks for doing this.

I got it to boot successfully. Wiped, installed the TWRP version and Gapps.

Gapps did not stick. Everything seemed to work otherwise.

This does replace TWRP with lineages recovery FYI.

I reinstalled TWRP and attempted to root and reinstall gapps and ended up with a bootloop.

I will explore more this weekend when I have more time to mess around.

Same. Without root and the ability to use Magisk Hide, I can't use Google Pay. If I can't use Google Pay, then there's not much reason to have the Pixel 3a XL over the Moto G7 Power.

Like a few of you, I'll be sticking with stock until I get confirmation of working Magisk and Google Pay.

I can confirm Magisk is working,as well as Viper4Android. was able to get Pico Gapps to stick. I flashed Pico Gapps after first boot, not sure if it makes a difference. don't use GPay very much so not sure if it works.

FYI- lineage just merged the android-9.0.0_r46 tag. I've been cherry picking the changes into my repo, and I'm testing now. There are a few small tweaks, but I think the majority of the changes are in the vendor image.
