Hi all,

new to the forum. Recently bought an XT-2113-2 Unlocked. Installed TWRP 3.5.2_10, LineageOS 18.1 and rooted with Magisk according to the instructions here. Then noticed the lack of ability to decrypt using this version of TWRP, so no data backups. I noticed based on the recent posts here that TWRP for Android 11 is available for certain phones, but not this one yet. Backups are one of the main reasons I install a custom recovery, and are important to me, so I had two questions:

1) being that this phone is shipped with Android 10, are there plans to eventually port the TWRP 3.6 over to be installed on these devices, to be able to decrypt data and create backups?

2) There was mention that there is another way to make and restore backups, not sure what the poster was referring to. Is there another way to backup and restore encrypted data on these phones? Using the standard TWRP GUI method hasn't worked for me, I only get errors.

Thanks!

Hey guys. I've installed everything right to the letter in the OP and when I start the setup wizard keeps closing. How did I get something wrong? I've done everything flawlessly, up until I start the Rom

I tried both the OP one and the one mentioned a little further down in the thread. But I got it to work after. Lineage isn't much better/different than stock Motorola. I was trying to use a ROM to get Always-On display, but lineage doesn't have it, and Havoc has too many bugs to use it.
Back to stock I guess

When I reboot into the bootloader after step 1, I get a bunch of empty folders with scrambled numbers and letters in the sdcard directory.
I did manage to fix this by the following:
1. adb push (copy partitions, lineage, gapps zips in terminal)
2. adb reboot bootloader
3. fastboot boot twrp.img
4. install copy partitions zip in TWRP
5. install lineage in TWRP
6. reboot bootloader from TWRP
7. format data in TWRP
8. reboot bootloader in TWRP
9. adb sideload from TWRP
10. adb sideload gapps.zip (terminal)
11. reboot bootloader in TWRP
12. fastboot -w in terminal
13. start from bootloader

Hi guys, so tried installing it and flashing through twrp, 1st time i didn't do the copy partitions step(my fault i was rushing through it) and after flashing lineage it replaced twrp with a lineage recovery and would boot loop.

Reflashed twrp and now that was bootlooping, after that and turning the phone off for a while and booting it back up its booted back into Motorola's stock Os and installed twrp again.

Now doing it properly/trying to i flashed copy partitions zip and said active slot was slot b so i tapped on slot a it updated partitions and then rebooted.

Now stuck in the boot loop again with both twrp and the OS and not too sure how to go about fixing it

I was in the similar situation.

fastboot -w solved it

hey so didn't check for responses till now. it seems to be working now? i didn't do the fastboot -w

Tried the stock os flash and it failed but then booted into a previous backup i made.
Twrp started working again so i flashed the lineage OS file, i couldn't flash the gapps or magisk because all the folder names were scrambled.

Then upon rebooting got put into a boot loop, lineage recovery popped up prompting to erase all files since there was a issue so i said yes. now its booted me into lineage OS on first reboot so i think its worked?

EDIT: In addition to this it seems to have put lineages own recovery on now so i can't flash magisk onto it?

Well that twrp is very outdated for one
But LineageOS recovery can flash magisk and gapps too.

Please feel free to find us on telegram as that's where most discussion and releases happen first.. Plus many folks willing to help on the fly.

This ROM is very nice! Super debloated and smooth! I need to fine-tune the access point settings for Mint Mobile, but other than that, zero issues!

Please explain to me why my notification light never worked with the stock firmware, even after setting it to flash with notifications, but Lineage it works perfectly? LOL big RIP, Motorola!

Is there anyway to get custom colored icons and time in the status bar? I miss that from the KitKat custom ROM days!

Notification light is only used for factory debugging otherwise completely unused.

As for colored icons closest thing is likely under settings display styles / theme

Hi all! Been out of the loop for a few years and just had a few quick questions.

I just got a Motorola One 5G Ace on Tmobile and plan to flash Lineage OS 18.1.
But wanted to make sure I'm using all the correct files before I start.

Here is what I grabbed:
15_Second_ADB_Installer_v1.5.6.zip
lineage-18.1-20211209-UNOFFICIAL-kiev.zip
copy-partitions-payton.zip
Magisk-v23.0.apk
Motorola_Mobile_Drivers_64bit.msi
open_gapps-arm64-11.0-nano-20220121.zip
twrp.img

Questions:
What's the best version of TWRP for my case?
When I need to flash Magisk do I have ti rename the extension to img?
And finally what's the difference between Gapps Mini, Nano and Full?

Thanks much guys. Cheers!

So what the status on Verizon? does VoLTE work?

I can't find anything specific on telegram.

    My Review After 1 Day:

    Running Android 11 - Lineage OS 18.1 Unofficial Nightly

    Just wanted to give you all my opinion. This is a very stable rom so far.. I just bought this phone today and had the bootloader unlocked, TWRP installed, this ROM with Gapps, and Magisk (both zip and apk).. all in about 2 hours. I have been ROMing for 10 years now and this was not that bad for someone with experience. I really didnt run into a problem. I have the stock firmware unbrick tool if I needed it. I did have to reflash my twrp after the initial rom install.. lineage has its own recovery which overwrites the twrp I wanted.. I just had to fastboot flash recovery to put the correct one on. Whats with this Slot A/B thing .. thats a strange concept that I need to select a Slot.. thats a new one. also the bootloader unlock code.. i have never had to enter an unlock code before for a bootloader but was easy to submit the request and my email came in 2 minutes.. this is a great rom with many more features than the stock firmware. I was able to switch the back and recents buttons to the older way with the back button on the right. I am testing GCam for a faster camera.. lineage stock camera has a little lag (after you press the button it takes a half second for the click sound and image preview to show). GCam is a little faster so far but I need to stress-test for stability.

    enjoy this rom.. its got my approval.

    EDIT: I attached my GCam config file. Everything is working.. all functions have been tested and no freezes or issues with instability. I will report back with issues.

    = GCam likes Google Photos app to load the images from within GCam.

    = I just snapped 50 pics one right after the other, non-stop, very fast beat.... there was lag but it was totally expected.. it did not freeze up and eventually caught up fine and would continue for a couple pics then lag again.. I would expect all this to happen and its stability was very good.

    Battery Drain is 2% over 5 hours sitting on my desk with screen off on standby. Battery Drain is a little more than I like while using apps. This needs some battery management but its not that bad.
