i am also now having no issues using repo sync. i agree with you that there was likely a temporary server failure.

i am attempting to build on a debian 11 machine with 32GB of memory, Threadripper 1950x, Linux 5.14.
adding -j 1 to repo sync changes the error to

fatal: missing blob object '556a1d6d9a8b7e78201c41b353020202da431890'
error: remote did not send all necessary objects
error: Cannot fetch platform/prebuilts/misc from https://android.googlesource.com/platform/prebuilts/misc
Fetching: 68% (582/855) platform/external/google-fonts/dancing-scriptfatal: missing blob object '556a1d6d9a8b7e78201c41b353020202da431890'
error: remote did not send all necessary objects

is there a way i can make the github website create me a massive .zip file i can download with my web browser?
guide works fine - the accusatory tone won't get you anywhere.

Delete the build tree, check your internet connection, and restart the guide.

Those errors mean you've been rate limited by google's site for some reason, and the latter one means the .git folder of that repo is corrupted. Like I said, just restart.

after simply waiting a day or two, it just started working. repo sync gives me no issues now. mustve been a temporary server problem.
only problem now is getting the fingerprint scanner to work.

ok i flashed another h910 and h990

once you get the hang of it it's pretty easy

for h910, check out this thread https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/root-howto-at-t-h910-up-to-v20g-fully-tested.3664500/
for h990, check out this thread https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/root-dirtysanta-comes-for-the-h990.3624296/

basically the process is pretty much the same. use patched lgup to backup full firmware. downgrade firmware which has vulnerability. use dirtysanta to flash engineer bootloader. wipe. update twrp. flash los + mindthegapps.

That's great! Glad to see there are still a few people interested in messing with those devices, they can be used as almost anything thanks to the extensive feature set they have.

im from g5, which i cannot find a new battery when the old one is gone. but v20 battery still available, i'm so glad the dev is making this work. the v20 i got was like [email protected] which is a bargain imo and i love the flexibility los give u

THANK YOU DEV!!!

If I were to flash the nightly, would I be able to update from within LOS? Or would I have to reflash and start all over each time? (would dirty flashing effect anything?)

Small bug... When connect to PC, H990 says LG-H990

H910 says LG-h910, the H is not capitzlied

BTW, is it possible to rename the sd card, like showing "SD Card" instead of "android" under files?

Every time there's an update and I flash it with OrangeFox the phone won't boot anymore. I have to do a clean flash everytime. Could it be a recovery problem?

I mean, you can if you really want to. But do a backup first, as you will have to format it because the label is used for the sdcard's UUID within the Filesystem, so just renaming it on a PC through Windows or whatever won't work (at least it didn't here).

I have no vibration from my H990 after flashing the newest build.

Does anyone getting something similar? Idk if it's hardware failure or not

p.s. I don't get vibration even in recovery&boot up

    Does anyone know if LOS 19.1 will be available for the LG V20?

    Nope. Kernel is 3.18 which can't ever properly work with android S.

    18 is bad. does not work correctly. i was stupid and jumped the gun & made my edc 18. now i am dieing to get back to what worked correctly (17 works) . but 17 just reboots back to the os over and over since i put 18 on it
    Then you're doing something wrong. It works for everyone else. Follow the guide from 0 and it will work.

    Just got an urgent text notification from my carrier Metro By T-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS):


    Does anyone recommend a good carrier in the USA that doesn't require VoLTE?
    if you haven't noticed by now, everyone will be requiring VoLTE but that and VoWiFi both are industry hot messes for the last decade (this has been causing so many problems for me through supporting my parents in the last couple months).

    my recommendation is move your phone number to a voip service, like google voice (for americans), then you can at least avoid some of the hassles, but still may potentially be issues calling 911 as that is not really clear (and likely also broken by ATT whitelist crap).

    On my LG v20 H910 with LOS 18.1 lineage-18.1-20210722-nightly-h910-signed.zip
    (nothing else installed, no gapps, no mods, no root, etc...) the "LOS SNAP CAMERA" VIDEO record sound volume is almost 0%

    SAME ISSUE ON Lg v20 H918 !!!!!!! I have that phone also.

    After days of research and playing with mixer_paths_tasha.xml settings I gave up..... PROBLEM VERIFIED: its a LOS snap camera apk issue.

    Then I installed ROM [android 11] UNOFFICIAL SuperiorOS-Xcalibur

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...96-11-unofficial-superioros-xcalibur.4248255/

    COMING FROM LINEAGE/RR:

    1. Boot into twrp
    2. Do a regular wipe (not format)
    3. Flash Superior zip
    4. Flash magisk (optional but recommended)
    5. Wipe dalvik
    6. Reboot

    CAMERA VIEDO WORKS PERFECT !!!!
    PERFECT SOUND !!!



    To LOS maintainers: Fix the LOS SNAP CAMERA apk or quit screwing around with programming android ROMs. Simple as that. I am a MSEE engineering manager and if I cant do my job right I don't do it at all.


    The LOS snap camera has been broken for a very long time (years) and many people have had to use GCAM or Open Camera and all these people including myself are sick that LOS maintainers can't fix a simple but very important apk in LOS (CAMERA video sound issue). This is well documented all over LOS wiki and github etc.....

    "Hi @npjohnson
    Open Camera (and BSG GCam 8.1) uses unprocessed-mic by default to get audio while recording video."


    I am done with LOS until this is fixed. YOU ARE WASTING MY TIME
    Yeah, considering h910/h918 are near identical, makes sense that they both suffer.

    By your own statement, you're an engineer, and should be able to discern based on the info you gave me that it is _not_ an issue with the "Snap Camera apk", instead that we are using compressed audio path, and clearly it isn't processing right (likely a codec issue like I mentioned several posts ago). We could swap it to unprocessed mic input, but that will be garbled and awful - only using that as a last resort as opposed to actually fixing the compressed audio route.

    As for the insults launched - k, stop using lineage then. I literally have not a care in the world whether you use it. I'm doing hard work for free, which, as an engineer, you should understand is often thankless, and your naggy/attacking comments only make me want to never touch the device again :)

    I'll be looking at it sometime this week, but for everyone else on this thread who has been kind and supportive lol.

    Maybe you should go back to stock? You do realize we do this for free and on our own time? If there are any issues we try to fix them ASAP but with your comments I doubt @npjohnson is going to want to support the device anymore. If there is any issue I would recommend reporting it in a less-hostile way and it might be a simple fix rather than insulting the primary dev for LOS on the device who may now not want to support the device anymore...

    Thread slightly cleaned!

    This is a development site and people contribute work as a fun hobby, NOT A JOB! They don't owe you anything but you owe the developers respect!
    If a ROM does not work for you, what did you do to contribute? Did you clean flash? More important, did you run a log of errors to help the developer? Just remember what you would expect in your profession. Or were you just too lazy to help and prefer to leech and complain?
    This world will only get better if we all learn to give instead of always taking! Please do not comment on rude posts, please report and a moderator will help.
    Thank you all for your cooperation.

    Will you working on Lineage OS 19?
    Lineage OS 19 is based on Android 12, so the chance of it even booting on the current 3.18 kernel is very slim, we'll need to update a lot of things including a major kernel version bump to reach a reasonable state to port anything Android 12 so it will likely take a while. Even kernel 4.4 still requires a ton of patching to be able to boot android 12
