Obviously, but that would only be relevant if official status would fix broken features, not the other way around. In other words, in order for a device to become official, work already has to be done to fix all those features. When that work is done those features are already fixed in unofficial builds, so official status is just a distinction saying that all these features work. Being unofficial is not why they're broken -- no one being able to fix them is why they're broken.

I see. I think you're looking at it from the perspective of realistically assessing the situation we're already in. From that perspective, the official status that we'd had up until this point is actually misleading, because of the very set of deficiencies which is currently disqualifying it from 15.1 support.

I was thinking in more of a general case: If there was a hypothetical possibility of having an official build of 15.1 or newer, and we were asked to compare that hypothetical possibility against the alternative of another build that was unofficial, I would have preferred the official build because of the assurances of quality control which accompany that status.

Refer back to my last couple of posts. The LineageOS project's requirements for what it takes to label a device as officially supported changed when they released 15.1 and created a project charter. With the charter, they became more strict about requiring that certain features which would have been supported in the manufacturer's stock OS must also work in LineageOS.

If those charter requirements are not met, then the device will not be granted official status, and no download links for the device will be available from the official webpage.

The efforts to-date to port LineageOS 15.1 (or newer) to the LG G5 currently has some broken features which make it ineligible for official status. Quickly scanning the last few pages of this thread, it looks like there are problems with the FM radio, with Bluetooth audio, and with NFC.

However, if you don't need those features, then the unofficial builds are probably good enough for many people's day-to-day use.

I've been using 15.1 (self build) for some time now. I don't use NFC or FM radio, so those are no problem. It would be nice to have BT microphone, but no big deal. So, everything that I actually use (or really want) works fine and everything is reasonably stable. The only problem that I have is occasionally on boot my storage (256GB) SD card isn't recognized, requiring a reboot, and even that hasn't been a problem lately.

Since I build and sign my own, I wouldn't be using an official build, even if there were one. So, I don't worry much about builds being official or not. If 16 was available, even unofficially, and worked at least as well as 15.1, I would be happy. Actually, I would be happy if 15.1 continued to get Android security updates, as I don't see anything in 16 that I really care about.

Of course, it might be even better if the H850 were treblized (set my phone free!).

Best wishes,
Bob

These are more than stable enough
Yes they r pretty stable...I tried the RR ROM and was quite pleased with it used it for a couple of weeks...but the screen stayed blank when I tried to unlock it so had to switch back to XenonHD ROM which is pretty much rock stable..but the security patch is way out of date

You should try using Pico gapps. That solved my issues with the device becoming unresponsive under LOS 15.1.

Yes it's over. No more builds and G5 support is dropped. Time to say good bye, unless it gets any maintainer (which I don't think is going to happen).

The best we can do is to install stock Oreo.

Anyway, this thread should be closed, because LineageOS has been discontinued on G5.

    Power to XDA!

    After only a few hours of me posting about my G5 dying you guys racked up enough donations that I'm on my way to my nearest phone shop (Carphonewarehouse) to pick up another LG G5!

    I guess my work on CyanogenMod starts again as of today guys, massive thanks to everyone on this thread you guys are epic!

    Massive Thanks,

    What I've been up to, Project updates and WEN ETA OREO!!

    Hello friends, I haven't died, just been very inactive due my beautiful girlfriend falling pregnant :)

    So I'm back and have a bit of spare time.

    So what's next? Well 14.1 will be unsupported in the coming weeks (not sure on a timescale but can't imagine it being too long now) I've started work on the official lineage 15.1 update and most stuff is working in early tests, including our beloved NFC and a few other things I never got round to on 14.1, this thread will just be updated with new links when I decide to make my new work public, a new thread WON'T be created so keep your eyes peeled in this thread.

    Thanks for the ongoing support, I've missed you guys!

    Thanks,
    King

    So, what's next?

    You've probably heard the news that CyanogenMod will end on the 31st December.
    Check: https://review.cyanogenmod.org/#/c/178955/

    Do not worry though, work for CyanogenMod on the G5 will continue as normal until the new ROM base (LineageOS) is ready.
    Our tree's a long with most other CM devices are already present on LineageOS's GitHub.

    I will continue to update my cm-14.1 builds until LineageOS is fully up and running then I'll rename this thread in accordance to LineageOS and start working on that.

    Rest in peace CyanogenMod, you'll be missed by a LOT of people, I can't wait to see how LineageOS turns out though!


    Happy holidays to all of you on XDA!

    I'll be back in a couple of days.

    Thanks!
