You can use heimdall, either with UI (somewhat complicated) or from console.
If your device is in download-mode type:
Code:
heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img
Replace "recovery.img" with the name (and probably path) of the image-file.
Heimdall should be available in all major distros.

I tried and it says:

Heimdall v1.4.1

Okay, I had an issue with heimdall, but I could fix it up with this post "http://www.bernaerts-nicolas.fr/linux/74-ubuntu/357-ubuntu-xenial-bionic-heimdall-compile-samsung" and I was able to install this ROM in my phone without installing Windows for that. Thanks!!

I know that the location quick settings issue was reported a page ago, since its being reported again its clearly not just an isolated incident. Try pulling the logcat on whats going on when you hit the panel?

Yes you should be able to flash 4.1 on top of your 4.2, as it will register as nothing more than an update to the system. You can, if you want, still do a wipe of your system. If you were switching from this rom to another, i'd say wipe.

Is anyone else experiencing app crashes after the SELinux update? E.g. FakeStore, F-Droid Privileged Extension... Here's the log of the last crash:

https://del.dog/uguzubemar.cs

Anyway, I was also wondering if it's safe to downgrade this ROM just one version (before the SELinux update) by flashing the zip file using TWRP (without having to lose any of my apps and files ofc).

Thanks.

Should work (not tested).
If you are rooted, you can try to run
as root in a terminal (e.g. adb shell) to switch to permissive until next reboot.

Using NanoDroid-{microg and F-Droid} modules, and have no issues with SELinux.

Oh, I had totally forgotten about setenforce. Thanks, I'll try that.

You mean Magisk modules? Unlucky me then, because I use the same NanoDroid modules. Speaking of which, do you upgrade your NanoDroid modules often (once a new version is released)? Or you do like myself and flash NanoDroid modules only once...? I'm asking because I'm on an older version (see screenshot) and I'm not sure if I flash the newer version it'd break something.

Okay, so I tried setenforce 0 and I was still getting crashes. Then I went YOLO mode and flashed the most recent NanoDroid modules on top of the ones I had installed then I prayed it would boot.

So it did boot, and the crashes are gone and SELinux is enabled again, which is just great. So no need to downgrade the ROM. :)

Thanks for helping, guys. And most importantly, thanks jenslody for this awesome ROM.

    Easily rootable with the great Magisk (stable) by @topjohnwu.

    I use it as daily driver without major issues.

    I use microG as google replacement and for push-services, signature-spoofing is already build into the rom but need to be enabled in "Settings -> Bootleg dumpster -> Miscellaneous" and granted in "Settings -> apps" and/or in microG-Settings.

    Finally it happened, the first stable Pie release of Bootleggers is out.
    Welcome the new 4.0-Stable build.
    Download links as ususal in the first post, sourceforge is currently (carefullly said) a little bit slow, estimated upload time for one device currently at 10 hours (!!!).
    So only the links to my server work.


    Many tweaks under the hood, greatest change for most users: we switched to Snap instead of the AOSP-stock cam, so using the shipped camera should give you a much better experience now.
    Sound might be a little bit louder, not really checked, it's nearly midnight now, I'm deadly tired (debugged until 4:30 last night and had only four hours of sleep) my daughter sleeps and I can not test, sorry.
    As always any feedback is welcome.


    And: no, the OTA-app is still not ready, so manual downloading is needed.

    I just uploaded a new build to my server, which fixes the home-button-does-not-wake-up-device-issue and the not reachable sim-settings.
    The rom now comes with a preinstalled browser.
    The camera/flashlight issue is not fixed: randomly the flashlight/torch does not work from quick-settings and the camera crashes, sometimes both work (mostly after a longer up-time of the device), but the camera always takes square photos, while the video-format is okay.
    Third party cameras work (at least OpenCamera a real good camera from F-Droid).

    Many optical updates: lots of the great Bootleggers themes and new real cool icons for the QuickSettings).

    Unfortunately the launcher has changed, because lawnchair (still alpha) caused massive lags on some devices, so it was (temporarily) removed in favor of a modified launcher3. Be aware, that all launcher settings have to be redone.
    But as you know (if you have read the OP) the status of this rom ist still testing, so such changes can happen, even if nobody is really happy with it.
    But still a rom, that works surprisingly stable on our old, small devices, I use it on work every day and never had any trouble with it.
