I don't want to use A12 and its hideous quick settings tiles.
How can one continue maintaining this 18.1 build? Like backporting the security fixes of the later builds?

If you build 18.1 yourself, you don't need to backport security patches, as the LineageOS team still do that monthly for 18.1, so just sync the source monthly after the backported patches merged, then you'll be good.

Hi, does someone know where can I get a copy of the latest available nightly LOS 18.1 for the Redmi 7? I don't want to switch to LOS 19.1 (because of the Android 12 and the Recovery) and I don't have a good PC to build 18.1 myself :( thanks if someone can help me.

Hi, I know this version is not supported anymore, but is there a way to "blur" the apps preview when you open the recent apps (square button)?

Hi there, I'm trying to use Magisk for the safetynet issue, I've renamed the magisk apk into zip, flashed using the recovery (adb sideload magisk.zip), the phone installed the magisk app but when I open the app, still says "ramdisk No" and can't use magisk functions... Is there any other step I've to follow? Thanks.
PS: I'm using LineageOS recovery.

Edit: nvm, I sorted it out. Looks like the latest magisk doesn't include the safetynet checker, that's why I tought it was not working. I've installed safetynet universal fix + hideprops and everything works good.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11 (R), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    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.

    Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    Device sources:
    Thanks for all your suggestions. I will move to 19.1.
    Guys I have seen a lot of guys are discussing about magisk. Actually magisk is not a important thing to make the rom to boot. Just flash lineage 18.1 zip and a11 gapps to upgrade from lineage 17.1.

    If you really want magisk, flash it after first boot (best case).
    and you can use latest magisk 22.0 . It works well.

    and for update bootloops, You guys may be used someother recoveries which is not recommended. Follow the steps as per lineage wiki . (may be my twrp works well but I don't even recommend. just follow as per lineage wiki if you are a normal user)
    Hey thank you for your patience. It will take sometime for me. Really busy these days + lack of resources (like internet connection, server). Thank you for your understanding.
    Fix SafetyNet without magisk modules.

    Flash this and reboot.

    New Update. :cool:

    Now you do not need to reflash it after every ota update that rom receives, just flash it only once
