Do we need to flash "no-verity-no-encrypt_ashyx.zip" also? Because i don't see it in instructions.

If you use stock Samsung ROM with Magisk it will lag your phone!
check my thread and you don't need to flash no-verity-no-encrypt_ashyx.zip

No. Im not planing to use samsung stock. Im waiting official LOS for our device. So i need it to flash rom and after to use it on LOS. So there should be no lag or problems with this TWRP on LOS?

Disagree - It does NOT lag the phone. Never has done with mine...not with stock firmware or LOS and it's variants.

Your TWRP is not working without "no-verity-no-encrypt_ashyx.zip". Iflashed it through odin. Made backup and now im stuck with samsung logo. Just so i can use Lineage OS. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for this version! :victory:

    All seems in good working order. On my SM-A520W (Canada) 2017, Lineage OS 14.1 updates 20180418 and 20180425 have successfully installed themselves via system -> your trwp -> system process..

    Any thoughts of getting to the twrp.me gang for "Official" inclusion and status? :good:

    Encrypted /data partition

    From the factory, my A5 2017 was encrypted. In order to be able to install lineageOS, I had to first format the /data partition. After that, everything went okay.
