Or here Lineage Root Binary Flashable zip
Use su arm64 zip file.

A. No, if you attempt to do so you'll be kissing your device goodbye!
Ok, so there is no way back. But, why we would be bricking the device if we try to do so? I thought EDL bootstrap would allow to flash the boot and recovery. And using TWRP we could flash the complete 2017U bootstack. Does this mean that LOS 14.1 is modifying the EDL mode? Just curious about this.

Flashing the bootstack from B29 is what will brick you. We are giving you all the updated N stack from N from ZTE. It changes the structure of booting and no zip on XDA and from ZTE will restore the changes it does. Just hold off until I can test downgrading my device.

GREAT!
I did not think this would be released until official N was out.
THANKS to all that made this possible.

I understand that your kernel requires that new bootstack in order to boot properly. The previous unofficial alpha version of LOS 14.1 was able to boot using the current B29 bootstack. However that old version had many non functional features.

    Just because we're quiet doesn't mean we aren't working. We want something stable and we're pretty darn close.Screenshot_Settings_20180504-044915.jpg
