Hi all, I went from standard LOS to this LOS ROM. All works perfect except one thing: the default email app dissapeared from my phone. I really want that one back because there arent many email apps which works with all emailproviders (outlook, gmail r most important) and dont have alot of trackers. Does any1 know how i can get the default email app back? I did a full backup with titanium backup but for some reason it freezes up when i tell it to restore the email app.
The email app was removed from official LineageOS 18.1 because of security concerns. There is a large list of alternatives

Do you use test keys? Heck, no! We sign all our builds with our own private keys.

Hi! I installed lineage for microg and it's great. I was wondering though why I'm on Dev keys. According to the FAQ, Lineage for MicroG should use his own signing keys.

Android experience relies heavily on Google's Play Services. The microG project creates an alternative to installing Gapps, which install and execute closed-source blobs on our phones. MicroG however requires a patch called "signature spoofing", which allows microG's apps to spoof themselves as Google Apps. LineageOS currently does not include the patch due to different opinions among the developers. (further information can be found here)

This makes microG installation difficult on LineageOS and other ROMs. Our ROM is a fork of LineageOS with just the necessary changes to have microG built-in. We ship weekly builds for all the LineageOS supported devices..

You could answer questions 1)&2) yourself if you'd carefully read at https://lineageos.microg.org
3) Banking apps are generally known to be tricky. Mine works (ING, Germany), but I've heard of several others that theirs doesn't.
4) There's none I know of. But you could easily open one yourself and post the link...
Apart from the technical side, XDA rules are a little bit picky about support via telegram instead of this forum.

Hi,
I have read I'd say all of the info on https://lineage.microg.org/ and struggling to find more information if I can install that OS on my Umidigi Bison Pro. I really want to give it a go and I'll appreciate if someone can advise me how I can get it installed on the above phone. I have tried to navigate through the list of devices/downloads on https://download.lineageos.org/ but clearly my device is not listed and not sure if any of those can be used for the Umidigi Bison Pro. There are various tutorials on how to create a custom ROM but once I get to the device specific information I am not sure what exactly needs to be added since there is nothing specific for my device in the repository.

Clearly I haven't created a ROM so far but I am willing to try that and volunteer to the point where I can indeed help. I am comfortable flashing ROMS, have done that and rooted plenty of devices if that might be of any help.

My current issue with the Imidigi's Bison Pro stock ROM is that the phone constantly restarts without any specific/obvious reason it might be during phone call or while browsing etc. I have managed to limit those restarts by force stopping and disabling google specific apps and services but still I think there are left overs which are trying to do something in the background. I'd accept any advice or information that can help me understand and build that from scratch - I am not expecting someone to devote their time to specifically create that ROM

Thanks in advance

I doubt, you will ever come to the point, where your custom ROM is more stable than the stock ROM. In your case i would factory reset and start again with disabing bloatware.

Hi kurtn, I am afraid you haven't read my post in full. I have already flashed again and again the stock rom probably 20 times. After all those tries I have clearly removed all the bloatware but as I mentioned in my post I find that the phone is only working to an extent like restarts twice for 24 hrs when I block google play and google play services. With the stock rom I am freezing/disabling stopping those but cannot remove them in full. This is why I want to try LineageOS for microG as it is meant to not use any of Google specific apps. So I'd appreciate if someone can provide some advise and where should I start. Thank you

Maybe you should try GSI.

    Just to give a small heads up. As you may noticed some of the project members the priorities have shifted to other projects.

    I was and am still willing to take over some of the tasks, but as microG lacked some bugfixes and support for LineageOS 17.1 i was not sure whether its worth it to spend more time into LineageOS for microG. Once marvin released the new microG update, we still had to check with our team, how we'll proceed.

    For now i've taken over the responsibility of the Android Build process, merged some of the fixes and integrated LineageOS 17.1 support. New builds are on their way, both LineageOS 16 and 17.1 based.


    Best

    Hey guys. You are right with your findings. We were testing yesterday LineageOS 15.1. But we rolled it back. Now we have almost everything ready for Lineage 15.1 - In fact there is one minor change outstanding before we're going to release. After release we'll start building the complete LineageOS weekly build roster again.

    today i got my weekly(?) update with november security patches via ota notification.
    thanks for that!

    Yes they are rolling out new builds again :) Thank you everyone who is contributing to this :good:

    Oops. They only build Oreo right now.

    We have decided to build every device weekly (like before), as we don't have the capacity to build for ~75 devices daily and nightlies are quite useless to the end users. We will build for all the ~200 devices, ~30 devices per day, from top to bottom of the usual hudson devices list (which means that 15.1 builds will appear in the first part of the week and 14.1 in the second one).

    As usual, new devices will be automatically added to the build list, no need to ask for them, just wait some days.
