Heyyo, so the latest official build includes a fix I merged for those who were on LinwageOS 18.1 then downgraded to stock Oreo ZenUI then came back to LOS 18.1, as there was an issue with sehash of persist partition which didn't exist in pre-Android 10 ROMs so meow all sensors (including fingerprint) will guaranteed work.

Also, I'm requesting a new official build of TWRP for our device that has support for FBE decryption and is rebased on Android 10 as our current TWRP is only Android 9. (y)

Heyyo @prabuddhadg , yes NFC works and I've tested it multiple times with an NFC card that I have and my speaker that can use NFC to connect bluetooth. We switched from NQ NFC to AOSP NFC since in some cases NQ NFC was causing issues and AOSP NFC was working fine. It also seems some other ROMs based on LOS Z01R trees were also failing to work with NQ NFC so it wasn't worth trying to maintain as also future versions of Android can also break NQ NFC for us just as it did LeEco Le Pro3 (zl1) which also had to switch to AOSP NFC since Android 9 pie. The only part of NFC I haven't tested is Google Pay which maybe others familiar with it could give an answer as to wether it works or not

Hi.

My mobile data does not work on roaming. I use two sim cards and I tried to remove one sim, then the other, use both but nothing works. It works when I am not on roaming, it also works on another phone even on roaming. What can I try to set? I have the latest lineage os 18.1, mindthegapps and magisk with pixel 5 fingerprint.

Thanks..

Hello, even following all the steps, lineage 18.1 recovery seems to be having problems here, every time i try to record the gapps, or magisk via adb sideload, it gets stuck at 0% checking the update package.
I ended up going back to stock rom. :(

Edit: I was able to install with another method using TWRP, but Los Recovery cannot flash.

The rom is very fluid and stable, with only the CTS missing.
could you let me know how you flashed the GApps with TWRP because after installing Lineage OS whenever I try flashing the TWRP recovery my phone goes into a bootloop and I cannot reach Recovery Mode.

Heyyo, a new test build is going up! Link as always for test builds are in the first post. lineage-18.1-20210814-UNOFFICIAL-Z01R contains some changes to hopefully get WiFi Calling working on all Indian carriers that support it, but since I can't test it? I cannot guarantee it works... so I need people to test and please report back

@whatever271 that is a system ROM change which tbh is something I don't touch since I don't know enough about that lol... I only modify the device/vendor trees and sometimes kernel

    Heyyo @h1ghn3zZ I'm super glad you're enjoying this! This is just a fun hobby for me since I have a family and I don't have time to sit down and play video games for hours on end lol... but achieving things on AOSP is definitely more rewarding as others get to enjoy the result of my hobby too. :)

    Tbh vendor security patch number is fluff lol... technically? It encompasses device firmware as well, but there isn't a good way to test vendor security patch level like there is for system security patch level as a lot of vendor portions have proprietary code (especially the bootloader), so there's no way to determine if vendors are outright lying about their vendor security patch level and missing security patches. o_O

    The only serious security flaw I remember with vendor was long ago where qseecomd could be exploited if a rogue apk was granted root permissions and it could bypass security passwords... but our device is so new that it doesn't apply to us... but still, root is a major security flaw anyways, as the whole idea behind it is administrative access and bypassing selinux (Security Enhanced Linux), so not having root on your device and keeping up to date on system security patches and proper selinux enforcing are great ways to keep your device secure, afterwards? It's pretty much avoiding sketchy downloads and apk's (as sometimes pirate modded apks can carry the risk of security exploits too). That's why all I do with my devices is LineageOS and GApps. If I need root for testing changes to my devices? I only use adb root from my PC and then when I'm done I reboot my device.

    Heyyo @tartutic07 , it was confirmed working here by decentguy49

    1
    He was saying it was working for him both banking and GPay. If by chance GPay isn't working for you? You might need to use Magisk and mods, but decentguy49 said he never had to though

    Cool. I will check it out when I install the OS.

    Thanks to @ThE_MarD for continuing this wonderful work. I was on the 17.1 ROM and was about to give up using this phone at the beginning of the year when Asus stopped giving out vendor security patches. Then, this ROM gives new life to my phone.

    So far, i did not experience any problems. Banking apps (where i have accounts) and Gpay are also working fine.

    I use Gcam which is also working fine. Battery drain is minimal.

    Thanks for the reply and comments @ThE_MarD , specially the in-depth info on security.

    In my previous years, i was naïve and foolishly install pirate modded apk's. Of course, in those days, i used my phone for gaming, mostly, so security was of little concern.

    But now, i use my phone for important business work as well as financial matters. So, security is a top priority. That is why, i never root my phone even if i use custom roms. Although i test different roms, i always decided to use LOS for my daily driver, as soon as it becomes Official. I made sure that the phones i bought receive LOS and never settle for those high-specs, but low cost devices which flooded the market nowadays.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restores the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.



    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.



    Code:

    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    I'm using my banking app no problems.

    Google pay is NOT working though. YMMV, I guess if your bank is as strict as google pay is it will not work

    Ah well I guess have to use online banking if it doesnt workout :)
    Thanks for the reply


    Hey i am using Banking apps and Google Pay, all work pretty much fine and i dont have any issue with any of them
