LineageOS is a free, community-built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 6, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

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 restore 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 out Gerrit Code Review.

  • Audio
  • Bluetooth

  • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
  • Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues.

Thanks, two issues for me XT1921-1 (Comcast)
1. fingerprint sensor is not found
2. face unlock use the back camera instead of the front one
other than those all other works fine.

did try to rebuild lineage using OPs GitHub source, but kept getting this error:
FAILED: ninja: 'out/target/product/james/kernel', needed by 'out/target/product/james/boot.img', missing and no known rule to make it

Thanks for this! No issues installing on the XT1921-3. So far I'm really pleased with the performance over stock, so much snappier, and this is much better than the unofficial 15.1 build from a couple years ago. Using gapps-pico.

XT1921-3 (T-mobile)
Issues:

The Camera works, with some issues. Not dealbreakers for me, because if you care about cameras this is absolutely not the phone to be using anyway.

Overall, I believe the front a rear cameras and lights are reversed, which is why the face unlock is the rear camera. Camera shows this as well - prior to taking a photo, selfie mode will show the actual photo (i.e. not mirrored), and the rear camera will always show a mirrored photo. On both stock and open camera, mirroring selfies will only mirror photos taken from the rear camera.

The camera also does not rotate correctly. If you rotate the photo 90 degrees, the image will rotate 180 degrees.

Flashlight only works on the front light.

Issue I ran into:

- Camera is reversed. It is difficult to get past the initial setup that really wants to use face unlock and getting it to work when you have to use the rear camera is difficult. It also uses the wrong camera when you pull up the camera app. I don't see a way to get it to use the opposite camera.

    you *MUST* use the recovery i provided and NOT any OTHERS as they are only 32bit

    32bit recovery CANNOT flash 64bit ROM!

    Still using the 11/24 build, perfect except for the camera bug. The recent build causes the system UI to crash a lot and feels overall slower, on top of the sound and other bugs.

    I have newer builds I've been trying to get testers to flash but jamss has hardly any volunteers to test..
    I'm not experiencing camera bug nor system ui crashing.. sounds like improper flash, or didnt wipe before flashing.. Follow instructions in main post , just updated it
    I'll provide the links here aswell
