Tried without Gapps?Rebuilt phone after complete wipe with format today. Thought I'd try my luck one last time...
TWRP (updated to 3.6.1) + Lineage 18.1 (latest nightly) + OpenGapps pico + Magisk (updated to 24.2)
Also, unlike previously, I only flashed Magisk after the first boot to system. And things initially looked quite proming. However, since installing Magisk, boot hangs on the LG screen (never seen that before), rescued usually by long press of power button. But now phone has already become unstable again, and has crashed repeatedly - each time getting caught in a bootloop of sorts. Nightmare.
Anyone using Lineage 18.1 with Magisk?? I need root... I'm close to binning this handset at this point. Any final suggestions?
You use ARM64 don't you?
Older Magisk (I usually take 21) and updating later?
Mine is rooted but I took NikGapps64 instead.
