SUPPORT FOR THIS HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED

LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.x (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are 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 us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *
 */

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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). 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. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

Instructions

First time flashing LineageOS 14.1 on your device, or coming from another ROM?
Unlock Bootloader!
Download the zip(s).
Install Appropriate FW base (STOCK MM 4.21.40.xx base is required) simple FW update package is available at my download link
Install a compatible Recovery
Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM (Optional)
Wipe data & cache partitions of your device (required when coming from stock!).
Flash LineageOS.
Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package. Open Gapps x86 7.1
Optional: Install the addon SU zip (x86 version)

Broken Features / Known Issues

  • VIDEO ENCODER/DECODER ISSUES: This results in green lines on videos/pictures taken using the Intel HW encoder/decoder and other playback issues dependent on video formats. See the list below:

    1. [*] Snapchat: thin greeen line tends to appear on recorded videos for snapchat
    2. Asus Pixelmaster Camera App: Super resolution mode does not work. Turning off "Optimizations" from settings clears up any green line issues.
    3. Some video formats do not play as expected
  • FM Radio is unsupported.
  • sim 2 cannot be disabled (this is true for all CM builds on non qualcomm hardware)
  • Other than Fugu (Nexus Player TV box) there are no Vendor released M x86/x86_64 builds in existance. You may experience some issues with GAPPS and some known apps not loading or working correctly. Below is a list of KNOWN apps that do not currently run on CM13 based x86 Zenfone 2 builds :
    Polaris Office, Chase Mobile, Showbox...
    [*] Screen recording not working Works now.
  • Chromecast screen mirroring not working, native casting works though.
    [*] factory reset from setting menu has been reported to cause recovery boot loops. Works now.

CM14 (not device specific issues)
No CMTE yet
CM file manager has trouble accessing external sdcard

Other Issues?

Before posting on this thread, make sure of a few things:
You've utilized the search function of the forums. Nothing irritates me more than lazy people who do not search for an answer before asking or ask the same question over and over again.
If you are the only one having a problem. Boot into recovery, wipe data/factory reset, reflash the rom/gapps and nothing else. Boot up and see if the problem persists.
Make sure your post is relevant to this thread. "I'm having problems rooting/unlocking" is NOT relevant here.
LOGS LOGS LOGS!!!! Use this: SysLog by Tortel

As the Zenfone2 has multiple models from multiple countries please include the following information in your report:
model #
CPU Speed / RAM Size
device state when errors occur (BT/wifi/nfc on ? On a call ? sitting idle on shelf ? )
method to reproduce if you've found something consistent

DATA MIGRATION BUILDS

"THESE BUILDS WILL TAKE A LONG TIME (~30 mins) TO BOOT"
LineageOS has moved to private key signed builds. This is something that typically requires a full data wipe to transition too. To ease this burden for users who are not accustomed to that , the initial release builds are designed "MIGRATION" to help users who do not want to clean flash from an existing CM/Lineage build. Use the data migration builds as a one time "Flash this first, and then the officials" to migrate to private key signed builds. Follow the below instructions using the admiration builds to preserve app data if so desired, Otherwise feel free to clean flash directly to the weekly release builds


Official CM-13.0 -> CM14.1 Upgrade Guide

As seen with my previous unofficial CM-13.0 builds based on the MM Stock roms, An upgrade to the MM Firmware and bootloader is required going forward.
This guide is here to assist.

1) Download ROM and 7.1 GAPPS
2) Download my Firmware Update package for Z00A or Z008 . FASTBOOT AND ADB ARE REQUIRED!
3) Follow the included instructions to update Firmware and flash the new compatible TWRP. If for some reason the new TWRP is not flashed automatically flash it manually via fastboot. "fastboot flash recovery recoverimagename.img
4) Reboot to recovery and flash CM 14 and Gapps, reboot and enjoy. Data Wipe on upgrade is not required

CM 14.1 from Stock MM

1) Unlock Bootloader
2) Flash compatible TWRP
3) Perform desired backups
4) From recovery, factory reset & install ROM & 7.1 GAPPS
5) Enjoy!

CM 14.1 from CM13 Mm based beta builds

1) Reboot to TWRP( should already have good version)
2) Flash CM14.1 and 7.1 GAPPS
3) Reboot and enjoy!!

Is the battery life really horrible? Is it worse than the MM blobs CM 13? Anyways, thanks for continuing to develop this great ROM.
No, it's actually been much better recently. I cleaned up a couple of the issues that were causing inconsistent wakelock issues a week or so ago.

Can confirm, I noticed my battery get much better recently before realizing you had updated that. I still have an issue with losing fast/quick charge, but I haven't seen others mention this so it's likely an issue on my end.

New nightly rom is amazing.... Thanks a lot guys @jrior001

---------- Post added at 04:11 AM ---------- Previous post was at 04:07 AM ----------

Ok btw can I upgrade my lollipop bootloader to MM via twrp
And also should I unroot and uninstall xposed?
No you can't do it with twrp... You need adb(comp) and unrooting is not necessary... Uninstalling xposed is also not necessary... It won't work in nougat.. It'll just be there

Just moved to the official branch. Migration tool worked perfectly, and SU optional package did its job as well.

The whole process was absolutely painless, so let's enjoy OTA updates from now on!

    FYI....

    The 1/27/18 build will be the last official nightly. I'm calling it quits on these devices. My touchscreen on my last zf2 gave out and I'm done wasting money repairing these things. My development time will now primarily be devoted to a few test devices and my new beloved Essential Phone.

    I wanted to take a moment here to thank all of those who have participated here, supported my work and the work of crpalmer early on. Also want to thank the few up and coming devs that have chipped in testing and tweaking and helping fix things along the way. It been a challenging experience supporting a unique device like this over the last few years.I also need to offer my gratitude to those of you who have made any donations to help fuel my efforts here, they were appreciated.

    None of the developers are paying attention to this issue...!!!
    Fed up with this issue.
    Going back to stock rom !!!! :(
    I swear I spent the last 2 weeks of my free time testing some changes for this issue... So has say99. I'm not so vocal on these threads as much mainly because I don't have the time or the patience for a lot of the noise here but we are working on it.

    Obviously its your device and by all means if this issue bothers you that much, absolutely go back to stock or cm13 or whatever else makes you happy. Nobody is forcing you to stick with any ROM. Just please take the hostile attitude with you.

    You guys can ignore whatever BS you read on all these stupid sites that are just redistributing out links, with ads so they can turn a quick easy profit.

    We just got a first glance at the source yesterday. There's not much changing for Intel projects specifically but there's major higher-level changes. Nobody is confident yet in what we can and can't make work yet.

    Long ago I was set on letting zf2 fade out into the sunset with N and drop supporting it for O. Right now I'm planning on letting things play out with the bringup over the next few weeks/months and see where it goes.
