Thank you very much! Installed it yesterday in combination with MindTheGapps and working great.

Only thing that I'm missing is the 'focus mode' which is part of 'digital wellbeing'. Could you tell me how I can get it? Couldn't find it in the Play store. I did install a separate APK but that doesn't make a difference. If I'm not mistaken, it is supposed to add an entry to the Settings section.

Has anyone done an upgrade from 17.1 to 18.1? Any issues when upgrading?

Why does the upgrade require sideloading, why cant it be done OTA?

The G7plus has a new maintainer with 18.1? Jleeblanch no longer?

I did that. No issues for the moment. But I'm not using GAPs.

Can't be sure why sideload is mandatory for major version upgrade, but I suspect it might be due to kernel change or some other major component that is incompatible with old system.

Upgraded using adb sideload, everything working fine, except for Wi-Fi that won't connect. Got this in the logs, any ideas?

UPDATE: my router was offering WPA2 and WPA3. I disabled WPA3 and phone is able to connect.
UPDATE #2: Problem is fixed with April 6th release.

Still no long press functionality on back button. :(
Flash a rom that does...and copy the overlay pertaining to the function you need from /system/product/overlay/ directory to external card flash next rom then use twrp file manager to place the overlay in the same directory then set permissions 755 in twrp.... Boot run su terminal #cmd overlay list this will list all overlays on phone with stars next to what's currently used... Then to enable/disable type from su terminal #cmd overlay enable nameofoverlay.apk
Use disable instead of enable for disabling... Sometimes a reboot is needed to apply.....that's low level intro easy just follow the steps and as always back up first...this will modify system...if you don't want it permanent create a magisk module to inject the overlay systemlessly....

    But the diference from stock to Lineage? How much?
    Didn't notice any difference. Check stock yourself if possible, on lineageos 18.1 it is 2.1 from 3.9 GB on average.
    Hope that this helps

    I think I found a problem but not sure if it is build problem or A11.
    There us no option to kill app with long press of back button.
    We removed that feature for a number of development based reasons, sorry.

    Does this reasons apply to mere mortals? ;)

    Let's hope no, because I find it quite useful.
