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.



What's working :

  • Audio
  • Bluetooth
  • Camera
  • Display
  • Encryption (Along with slow boot issues, 40s for normal boot)
  • Face unlock
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • GPS
  • RIL (VoLTE calls, SMS, Data)
  • Safetynet (Without magisk)
  • Sensors
  • Video Playback
  • Wi-Fi



Device specific features:
  • Gestures
  • Keydisabler



Known issues:
  • Nothing critical as of now



Report bugs:
  • 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.

Thank you for the rom. So far it is working great since I did the install 2 days ago. I jumped from stock rom directly to this and I can't comment for the other LOS releases. I am using Basic NikGApps.

Something really weird when I first install the rom is Nik's wont install directly after rom install. Something about /system cannot be mounted. I had to reboot after rom install to be able to install the GApps.

Boot up is super quick (I wiped /data). Home/task manager animation is jittery but expected. Overall compatibility is great, although Find Device shows this device as Google Pixel 5. Dual sim is working as expected, but I only use the other sim as gsm exclusive recipient. The stock rom sometimes restart both sim (like no signal followed by searcing for network) after/during phone call, so it is much better now. The stock's built in browser & webview was flaky and now it is so much better.

My device's power button is faulty and I wake up my device with the FP sensor/screen double tap. When the screen is timed out, sometimes, if not often, the FP and 2-tap cannot wake up the screen. Not a big deal for me, but I thought I should share anyway.

My question is any help/tutorial on rooting?

So far the one I found is by using Magisk, and the magisk manager shows no ramdisk for this device. I don't really want to do the recovery dance considering the status of the device's hw buttons.

Hi Everyone, just two questions

The install instructions don't mention deleting /system, do i have to be using a stock ROM and then flash this? or whatever ROM i'm using when installing the OS will overwrite everything?

I'm also using the standard K6, is there any difference in the installation process? the phones have identical specs but just asking anyway

Thank you for that awesome ROM, it works really well so far for me. The only issue that I have is that apps running in the bakground crash almost every time. For example: i'm listening to spotify (or and other media player, really) and actively use any other app at the same time. In 9 of 10 cases the media player will stop running.
I reckon this issue has been solved for pixel phones using the "Suspend Execution for Cached Apps" option in the developer options, but this feature is not available in this ROM. Also disabling the battery optimization for the crashing apps didn't help either.
Do you guys too have this problem?
Is there a workaround?

Hello everyone!
Firstly, very thanks to Karthick for the hard work. I'm new in this forum but I use LineageOS 16 on my k33b36 about 1 year Nothing to say about, it works fine to me!

I'm here because I wanted to know if this build works on my k33b36. I'm excited to test it and hope I can help somehow, but my knowledge in this area is very weak...
Anyway, thanks since now!

    Why is SELinux disabled in this version? It was enforcing in the previous ones.

    To enter recovery after instalation rom, Only form ABD or root?
    *Solved* After the first startup in LineageOS, uncheck something like LineageOS recovery.
