Installed 20210415 version on H918 (previously unofficial 18.1 and official 17.1) after factory reset via TWRP. Runs great! Added Gamma kernel and Magisk. No problems with BT or GPS or camera (both stock and gcam cstark27_GCam_5.1.018_24_v4.2t3.apk).

Great job developers!

If you have success or problems please include the LG V20 version in your post. Often the difficulties are version dependent.
 
On 04-01, I updated to TWRP 3.5.1 and did a clean install of this ROM (04-01). I wiped & formatted, after making a copy of my internal storage to a PC. The install went great. I reinstalled my apps and then flashed Magisk 22.0. Everything I tried worked well (BT, GPS, quad DAC).

Today, I updated to TWRP 3.5.2 and Magisk 22.1. Then, I dirty flashed the 04-15 nightly. Magisk patched new boot.img automatically and everything is working well.

Thanks to npjohnson and x86cpu for keeping my travel device up-to-date. :)
it was almost all aleasto this cycle!

Hallo, as there is now an offical LOS 18.1, i am asking here again.

Does encryption and mounting encrypted volume in LOS 18 work now, or is LOS 16 still the last version, were it works?
I would try myself but doing an upgrade and than downgrade again, if it still doesnt work, is a big hassle.
Somebody have encryption on and can mount and decrypt the DATA Volume in TWRP?

maybe make latest available version firmware? maybe 2019... i not know what is last version, my phone vendor security is 2017... how i upgrade to 2018 or 2019 if possible to make? thx :) soryr for bad engglish
we support the G5/v20/G6 all in one common tree. This means we can use most Oreo blobs (and do) on v20.

But we have to use a few Nougat blobs for the G5 as it never got Oreo.

I'll be updating the vendor date for the v20 to reflect the latest Oreo build, and G5 for Nougat soon.

Bootstacks/firmware will remain whatever you're on. I'm not touching that, as each variant is different and there are too many to account for.

Is fingerprint scanner supposed to be working? I'm on us996 with Verizon and I just flashed this coming from stock oreo + twrp. Everything seems to be working fine except the fingerprint scanner.

ya'll need to start searching, this has been going on for years. If you want the fingerprint sensor to work you need to have nougat firmware.

Hi,

I've been away for a while and want to install Lineage OS on my H-910. I'm using:

Bootloader unlocked via Dirty Santa Method?
Twrp installed.
H910_20h_Oreo_full_rooted zip
H910_v2.1-mk2000
LG Add Ons like rctd disabler and the hide warning from AT&T.
Magisk

I want to make sure that all of my phones features work properly like fingerprint sensors, wireless charging, etc. Are there any additional steps I would need to make to install the latest LineageOS with full functionality or just follow the install guide? Let me know, thanks!

    On LOS >16, u cant mount DATA in TWRP. Causing not being able to do a nandroid backup.
    This is caused by the DATA Partition cant be decrypted in TWRP, when using 17=>. In LOS 16, this still works fine.

    This is causing TWRP to be useless, when encrypted and a recent LOS. Ofcourse not everybody does a backup through
    TWRP but when moving to another LGV20, its the most time inentensive option.

    But thanks for the reply. Good to know, it work fine in LOS Recovery and OTA

      Спасибо за новую версию ОС Android Linegae!
      В настоящее время я использую Lineage OS 17.1, нужно ли мне вернуться к стандартной прошивке LG перед прошивкой этого ПЗУ?
      Нет. Но нужно удалить гаппсы 17.1. Протрите систему.
