This mean rooted device would not get support here?

when you start doing non-standard things with your phone, people aren't going to be able to help you troubleshoot problems as well. The more you deviate, the less likely people will be willing to help you. That's to be expected. It's the reason I keep things pretty vanilla (LOS + opengapps pico)...

OK but should we grab the latest MOTO stock ROM, and copy the same partitions over as outlined in the 6T guide? If we do not do that, will it make latest LOS 19 buggy? Out of curiosity, what does *your* vendor patch level date say?

nope - Just as long as you're on latest Android version - say lake, you should be on android 10, doesn't matter which sub version.

Vendor SPL is dependent on lineage, not stock - we build vendor - the 6T didn't used to - so they had to have users flash vendor themselves.

I looked for version 19.1 on the official website and didn't find anything to download. A few hours ago it was available. What happened?

There is a new version built this night ( 20220427) now online. This worked now for me and even the first boot was really fast (~2 min). https://download.lineageos.org/lake

Had issues the whole night with the 20220426 build. I was always in a boot loop after sideloading the 26 version.
Later, I tried to go to Stock Rom first with the Lenovo Rescue and Smart Assistance (to my XT1965-3 (EU) ).
Sideloaded Recovery and Lineage 19.1 again -> bootloop.
Went to bed late, saw a new version right after getting up -> works as expected


First, Thank you @npjohnson for your work!
Do you have a personal donation link?

Version 27 hasn't bootloop

Do you have any problems installing gapps? I can't add google account after installation. i get application error. Wipe doesnt change anything

After installing 27.04 LOS, system updates info shows it is version 26. I can update to 27 but after reboot nothing happens and it still shows 26 with the option to install 27 again.

Can TWRP be used to flash this? If yes, any special version of TWRP needed?

I boot to TWRP using fastboot and not installing it on the phone.

I installed it with the latest TWRP. It bootlooped with flamegapps but installed successfully with mindthegapps.
I install twrp on the system and it has a handy choice to reflash itself after installing the rom. You then must reboot to twrp to add the gapps zip or it will not work.
For anyone else interested I also installed magisk and it works perfectly but be aware of @npjohnson's point re loss of support.

Thank you for your answer. Did you do a fresh install/wipe the data partition?

I have currently installed Lineageos 18.1 + Open Gapps for Android 11 (nano). Can I do a dirty flash/install with Lineageos 19 and MindTheGapps?

Which version of Magisk do you use? And which version of TRWP?

I did a format data AND wipe with twrp-3.6.1. Make sure you follow the install instructions on twrp for motorola g7+. You need the img file and the zip.
I don't use open gapps- too mush bloat - but I got a bootloop with flamegapps so I followed npj's advice and used mindthegapps.
I didn't try a dirty flash so I don't know but I would go for the full wipe.
Good luck but if you do it properly you shouldn't need it.

    Same here. I always have to use my ancient dell with usb2.0 ports (also it's linux now). It won't work on my modern asus laptop with usb3 or usb2 ports.

    IMO mindthegapps, which only offers one package (stock) is gonna be far more bloated than the projects which offer minimal package installs (pico/nano for OpenGapps, core for NikGapps, basic for FlameGapps). I too am frustrated that opengapps seems way behind the curve here, but I don't want to wipe my phone to switch to one of the others...

    Good news. Flashing to stock enabled VoLTE and calls over wifi. Then I reflashed to LOS 19.1 (with NikGapps core) . At first I got no mobile data connection to tmobile, but a restart fixed that problem. Now it shows the phone as registered and it's doing "HD" calls and wifi calls. Interestingly, my vendor security patch level still shows as Feb 2021. I expected it to be later.

    Stressful process, especially since I flashed the stock ROM entirely by hand with fastboot flash commands (I wasn't sure the 5-part sparse system image would copy correctly). But I'm so happy now that it all worked. Thanks so much npjohnson. I really appreciate your guidance here.
