Hey guys, i'm wondering if theres is any specific method or build to install LOS version to F800L model? i tried install the H910 verion which is nice for LOS 15.1. but when i upgraded to 16.0 or 17.1 the camera didn't work. i have tried dirty and clean flash, nothing is working. is there any way to make the LOS 17.1 worked on F800 series?

Thank you very much for that information.

Someone is using the vs995 los 17.1 for F800s and it's working well

Thank you very much for that information. I will test it out as soon as I get the F800. Due to the ...... virus (closed borders) it is stuck in postal warehouse for many weeks now.

F800s won't boot to bootloader/fastboot

Someone is using the vs995 los 17.1 for F800s and it's working well
I have just got factory refurbished F800S and it has no fastboot (either manually vol down+ connect to PC or through ADB command; ADB identifies it fine.)

Have been tying Dirty Santa (but missing out "fastboot flash boot bootbackup.img") as per a video guide for the Korean variants; but even after managing to flash TWRP and get into TWRP and delete data, it then wouldn't reboot to bootloader and the screen is just permanently messed up until I re-UP a stock ROM with LGUP (as I can at least get the phone into download mode..just won't go into recovery).
EDIT: Finally managed to do it after adapting various versions of dirty santa method plus other fix's.
Will maybe post back later.

you need to open the zip file.
edit the update-script
remove the assert line then save & flash it

Thank you. i managed to edit and flash the zip. but now i get a static screen on boot after the lg logo

I have F8OOK LineageOs 17.1 official nightly installed . Everything works including quad-hifi and this is what i did.

I was in rooted oreo.

downgraded to stock Nougat kdz(F800K10e_00_0914.kdz) by using LGUP

after going back to stock, make sure to factory reset before booting to system

Root and install TWRP using Dirtysanta method

reboot into recovery(Now Twrp) and format data to remove encryption.

reboot to recovery and flash supersu or magisk provided in the dirtySanta method.

reboot to system and check for root.

if rooted; download and copy to SDCARD or device ;
Latest Twrp(I used Vs995)
tox86.zip
lineage-15.1-20200506-X86CPU-vs995.zip
lineage-17.1-20200506-X86CPU-vs995.zip
lineage-17.1-20201201-nightly-vs995-signed.zip
selinux-permissive-boot-patcher.zip
Magisk-v20.4.zip (incase you are flashing LOS17) and or Magisk-v18.0.zip (Incase you are flashing LOS15.1)
Gapps

make sure to open each LOS zip file.
edit the updater-script with notepad++ (located at "lineage-15.1-20200506-X86CPU-vs995.zip\META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script)

assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "vs995" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "vs995" ||
getprop("ro.product.device") == "us996" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "us996" ||
getprop("ro.product.device") == "elsa" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "elsa" || abort("E3004: This package is for device: vs995,us996,elsa; this device is " + getprop("ro.product.device") + "."););

remove the above assert line then save it as zip before flashing it

Lets Start.

Boot into Recovery

install new and latest TWRP

Reboot into recovery

factory reset

flash tox86.zip

format data(if needed)

advanced wide(system,dalvik,data,cache) you can wipe also internal storage but you'll have to mount to pc to copy over your flash files(if you dont have a SDcard)

go to install

flash lineage-15.1-20200506-X86CPU-vs995.zip

wipe cache/dalvik

reboot to system.

make sure everything works(i.e Fingerprint, flash, camera)

reboot into recovery

advanced wipe(system,dalvik,data,cache)

clean flash lineage-17.1-20200506-X86CPU-vs995.zip , wipe dalvik/cache, flash Gapps, Flash Magisk-v20.4.zip , Flash selinux-permissive-boot-patcher.zip, Reboot into system.

Profit? Let me know how it goes.

if you want to move from unoffical to official build , follow these steps:

Backup data partition using TWRP
Factory reset phone using TWRP (option is under the Wipe menu)
Install lineage-17.1-20201201-nightly-vs995-signed.zip
Install Magisk 20.4 if you wish
Flash selinux-permissive-boot-patcher.zip,
reboot and wait for about 10 minutes until Welcome screen shows on your phone
Power down the phone, and go back into TWRP using the manual method
Once in TWRP, restore the data partition you had just backed up
reboot and wait for another 10 minutes

4. Reboot to TWRP recovery
5. Wipe phone then format data
6. Install the modified Lineage 17.1 then wipe dalvik cache
7. Reboot to system
**Camera, Flashlight, Fingerprint Torch are working
**SELINUX = Enforcing
5. Wipe phone then format data => Do you mean "Wipe all partitions then Format Data"?
I flashed Lineage 17.1 and 18.1 on F800K (F800K30h as base). Fingerprint doesn't work on both version.

FRP works, flash and camera won't work. Moreover, factory reset will make flashing tox86 useless be cause tox86 uses user data.

Anyone had any luck with this?

All hardware seems to work for the F800K (V20 Korean KT (Korea Telecom) version of the phone) on the lineage-15.1-20200506-X86CPU-vs995 build linked above (3x cameras rear, rear telephoto, front OK, accelerometer OK - rotation OK).
The notch / "second screen" is not supported, and obviously there are unpatched security issues with a build that old.

Any newer build of LineageOS, whether the x86cpu variants above, or official vs995 builds, the camera and accellerometer don't work. I tried the above steps without any luck, the 17.1 x86CPU build lost the camera and accellerometer. GPS not tested.

For now, I think I'll take this phone back to the LG official Pie image before starting to use it, although I'm sure a working combination must be possible, with LineageOS 17.1 also being Pie.

Anyone had any better luck than me for the F800K?

    I have the LG V20 F800 model too and it would be very nice to upgrade to Lineage OS 17.1. :)
