This is not my build. Credit ny-hardcore for all the hard work on this. I'm just posting it.

Screen call is broken.

This is Lineage 18, Android 11 custom rom for the Pixel 4a Sunfish

If you do not want root, you can stop after step 6

1. Reboot to bootloader

2. fastboot flash --slot all boot recovery.img https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Hh7D_UbnnoTRr1XbC9i0-dvtFgbuFqrP/view?usp=sharing

3. Reboot to recovery

4. factory reset

5. adb sideload lineage-18.0-20201209-UNOFFICIAL-sunfish.zip
https://mega.nz/file/cUlVXApI#NbzUJ6UlyQvyPTitKnW7uJG_tHrsfYor9O0dH4yIiWc

6. Reboot to system

7. Install Magisk Manager https://raw.githubusercontent.com/topjohnwu/magisk_files/canary/app-debug.apk

8. Reboot to bootloader

9. fastboot flash boot magisk_patched.img https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cONN9Ev0jdAHaRSeOeYyeRTONJ-yO_8-/view?usp=sharing

10. Reboot to system

Could you please provide a kernel and device source tree for this? I have an in-progress diff which I am working to get 18 running fully on the device. It doesn't boot yet, and I would like to know what I messed up.

Based on the fact that this is NOT my work as stated above, I'm NOT at liberty to tell you. No offense. I would contact xda member edmontonchef and ask him. He's the one who sent it to me. I would like to think this wouldn't be a issue because if it was mine, I wouldn't care, but it's not.

New build updated in OP. Thank Senior Member ny-hardcore for this.
Changes: Lineage sources and kernel updated with latest google update. The boot.img was updated in the payload to eliminate a second boot flash after sideloading rom for working WiFi. Please report any bugs that I may have missed. Also, I never dirty flash over anything. They more than likely cause problems. I did a clean install of this. If you are on the previous build of this, I DO NOT recommend dirty flashing it.

Flashed and running well. WiFi worked right away. I noticed the boot.IMG in the op has stock recovery so I used the derpfest boot.IMG for flashing instead.
Also it's still November ASB?

I haven't been able to check everything out. One thing I just noticed is that I am unable to pass safetynet with it but not a big deal for me.

The boot in OP will work as well so take your pick and yes I did notice its still November. He's working on another build though.
