While troubleshooting I accidentally disabled a package that casued a boot loop. I ended up having to complelety wipe the device and start over.

Good news is, no more permission issues. Still don't know the root cause.

Oddly though, with twrp, nothing I did stuck. The file, on system partition, that I needed to modify would revert on reboot. Any files I transfered disappeared on reboot. Any idea why? Basically twrp acted like I never did anything after a reboot. Because of that I had to delete data and start over (using jag recovery). Which makes twrp completely useless.


Edit -just saw you figured out the permissions issue, awesome!

Any chance for AOD fingerprint to
cont back?
System: that's because Magisk is installed with 'enable verity' flag, which means nothing could be changed in system partition except through Magisk, which actually does not change system, but rather makes system believe that Magisk layer is a part of System. So, whatever changes you make to System partition directly, will be reverted on reboot.

I know its off topic, but with enable verify, would I be able to make and flash a Magisk module in TWRP to solve my problem (needed to update a permission in a config file on the system partition)?

Several points about kernel updating and security:

For some reason, most custom rom kernels, including Lineage kernels, haven't been updated for almost 2 years. Although, Google security patches for AOSP are regularly merged, not so with kernels. Here is just one example. Lineage's latest kernel for Oneplus 8 series (whether A11, A12 or A13), all stopped being updated from upstream at 4.19.157. The current upstream code is at 4.19.261. Again, that's 2020 and we are almost in 2023. These are literally thousands of commits many including various fixes for 'overflows' and 'leaks', which constitute 'back doors' for exploitation. They are as important, if not more, than AOSP security patches.

To find out kernel update level, look into Makefile at the top. For Example:

Here is Oneplus 8 Lineage's kernel Makefile. It says 4.19.157. The last update (to .157) was merged in November 2020, two years ago. The same is true with other kernels, see the infamous Blue_Spark kernel: also 4.19.157... . Think Oneplus stock kernel is any different? Think again: also 4.19.157. Here is GrapheneOS 4.19 kernel: 4.19.239 - much better than the above, but still behind the curve.

To contrast, look at the current upstream kernel (same 4.19.x version), which is at 4.19.261 as of October 5, 2022, and this is
Jaguar kernel, also 4.19.261 as of October 6, 2022.

This is not in any way to criticize other developments: we all do what we do according to our choices and time constraints.

That is nice to know thank you. Can you think of a reason of not updating the kernel? For my understanding, if i have the latest security updates but my kernel is exploitable, security updates are not a good argument anymore.

I don't know for sure, but generally, unlike the Linux community, Android one primarily focuses on the looks, i.e., monet, accents, animations and features. Security is of no particular concern. After all, most custom roms run only on unlocked bootloaders, where many security features are disabled.

Why is that? Linux developers are adults.

You made some good points. I run on unlocked bootloaders etc. since android is a thing, i dont use anything than Windows Defender on my PC and i never had any security issue, because i know what i do. Same clearly goes for the majority of root users. Leaving quality aside apple does a good job for most people. In a closed down system you dont need to know anything to be secured.

You may know what you are doing, but what if your phone gets in someone else's hands whether by accident or force? If your system isn't locked, it is exposed to all kinds of trouble.

All roms using kernel from 2 years ago, no one really bothers to update this ever, not if its lack of knowledge or laziness.

I have never said it was the lack of knowledge or laziness. It's a matter of priorities. Folks just have no clue about security and privacy. That's why they don't bother. And by the way, this is not kernels only, the whole concept of custom roms for Android is devoid of security:

1. Most roms, Lineage included, are user-debug where security is several layers below user builds. In fact, even Google says user-debug builds are for developers only, security is mostly disabled to make the process of bug discovery easier. Google says user-debugs are not fit for production.

2. Unlocked bootloader: nothing is being enforced at all. In addition, and comically enough, Lineage also disables avb and verity in kernel on unlocked bootloader, where neither can be enforced. Do they have a clue?

In my view, if you have no clue about privacy and security, you shouldn't be developing software.

P.S. Magisk also disables verity. My kernel for 8 series is not just prepatched on the phone and then included as prebuilt in the rom zip. This would have broken avb and the ability to lock bootloader. Rom script and Magisk scripts are modified so that Magisk could run during the build and before the final signing. It actually runs right after boot.img is built, and scripts apply 'keep verity' (see attached screenshot from my build Box terminal). So, when you flash the rom, there is no flashing Magisk. You just install Magisk manager, as a regular app, and let it finish setup.

Just to provide my feedback about this ROM. I'm really surprised how well everything works in general in comparison with other OnePlus 8 Pro ROMs. I can keep this one as a daily driver whitout worrying about a random crash or restart, which is great. I even relocked the bootloader with the donation option and now I feel quite safe 😬
I'm happy that fingerprint unlock works very well, and camera photo quality is very good. I configured Magisk correctly and installed the required modules and now all my bank/corporate apps are working perfectly.
Even if it's close to perfection, it also has some issues I would like to point out:
Battery drain: In comparison with stock rom, battery drains much faster. Previously I could end my day with around 50-60 of battery left. With optimus I need to be careful and at the end of the day maybe I have 20-30 left. Knowing this I charge the battery more often. I don't know if this is expected, or maybe I have some misconfiguration or something.
Brightness: ROM's default screen brightness seems too high for me, I find myself lowering it very often and seems like my new values don't get stuck every time.
Camera: of course this is not the ROM's fault or anything, but camera stability and features are not at the same level as with OP camera. I installed a gcam which has lots of features and it's great (LMC v14), but sometimes it acts strange. I will try to use the default Open Camera to see if at least I get full stability. Maybe OP camera could be integrated somehow in this ROM, as it's in others?

A thing I miss is to have the fingerprint directly ready in the Always-on Display as it is with stock rom. In Jaguar I need to doubletap to enable the lockscreen and then fingerprint unlock. Also about AOD, having "burn protection" would be great (right now the date/time are static at the same place).

Even with these things I mentioned, the ROM is great and I will keep it for a long time. Thanks a lot optimumpro for your great work!

This is why I drive a Honda CRV, because its safe and reliable like Jaguar!

Thank you Optimumpro for your dedication to this spectacular rom!

Just one question, is Android 12 in your sights eventually or maybe skipping 12 and going to 13? Sorry, I had to ask as I know other users must be wondering the same. And thank you again for everything!

Hi I love this rom, but like in @woonaval case battery is the issue but more drastically. Its constantly draining and throught night battery drops from 100% to 64%.

Is it possible to find source of draining? may by some app or in some logs?

I think that it must be cause by some setting or app, bcs after clean flash without any app it lost 1% battery per night.

Second what it bothers me is not working auto brightness or if it working it is set to high.

I'll be glad for any tips guys!

You can have it regardless of AOD. Just go to Settings/Display/Lockscreen/Ambient display and enable 'pick up'. This way, each time you pick up the phone, you'll have lockscreen with fingerprint ready.

    Same here. I am also getting this randomly.
    I think it is trying to shift icons to prevent burnins, but due to various margins and camera cutout or if you have too many icons, it just doesn't look good.

    I tried several times to download but always was getting a failed partial download. (Forgot to do it in Incognito mode....) Was able to download complete only just now.

    Dirty flashed - working fine.

    Jaguar is available on locked bootloader with working root (Magisk)

    SAFETY NET IS SUCCESSFULLY PASSED WITH MAGISK 24.3 and up. See instructions here

    You can actually use alarm when the phone is shut down. It would boot 2 minutes prior to scheduled time and trigger the alarm on time

    This is official Jaguar Rom.

    I have been building Android roms since 2012 for various devices including multiple Sonys, Lenovo Zuk, Oneplus 3, Oneplus 5 and Oneplus 6. You can check my Oneplus 6 or
    Oneplus 6T threads and browse my profile.

    Jaguar rom is focused on hardening of AndroidOS and kernel. As such, the rom has hardened bionic, art, framework and tightened security.

    1 Rom control with custom Power options, Statusbar, Buttons, Navbar, Quicksettings, Lockscreen, Notifications, Gestures, Themes etc...

    2. Heavily modified Art, Bionic System/Vold and System/Security

    3. Telephony response to Type Zero sms ('silently acknowledged') disabled

    4. Toggle to disable Captive Portal logging.

    5. Speakerphone proximity sensor toggle - could be set to automatically switch to speaker when not at the ear

    6. IMEI and phone numbers hidden in About menu

    7. Built-in encrypted DNS providers, such as: Cloudflare (US); LibreDns (Germany); AdguardDns (Cyprus); and PowerDns (Netherlands)

    8. Wakelock and Alarmblocker

    9. Fully working Call recording with the button visible in Dialer

    10. A choice between the latest Bromite and Vanadium webview

    11. Deskclock app modified to work with PowerOn alarm. The app will boot the phone 2 minutes before scheduled time to trigger the alarm on time

    12. Default Dark mode

    13. All regular customizations plus. You tell me which feature is missing.

    Install instructions


    If this is your first time coming from stock, you need to have stock Android 11 in both slots. So, either update stock OTA to populate the second slot or flash stock rom with TWRP. Do not use Lineage's 'transfer' script, as this might corrupt your persist partition. In addition, that script transfers outdated files.

    1. Install Jaguar recovery from (from post #3) via fastboot: reboot in fastboot and execute the following commands on your connected PC terminal:

    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery_a recovery.img
    fastboot flash recovery_b recovery.img

    Or use TWRP

    2. Download the rom to your PC. Boot the phone into recovery, set recovery for sideloading, then type on your PC terminal (which should be opened in the same directory where you had downloaded the rom):

    Code:
    adb sideload 'name of the rom'

    3. Factory reset and reboot. You are done. If you want root, just install Magisk manager (apk) from here as a normal app. Don't flash it.

    PICO Gapps has been tested successfully with this rom

    Download rom from post #3

    All subsequent release will be in post #3.

    The rom could be used on locked bootloader with ROOT (donate feature) with or without Gapps.

    The benefits of LOCKED BOOTLOADER combined with WORKING AVB-2 protection are:


    You get your DRM L1 back (one full stock update required). Many banking applications (tested several) will work even if Magisk is not hidden: you simply get a warning, your device is rooted, but can click 'don't show again' and proceed to login.

    Nobody and nothing can modify Kernel, Recovery and Virtual Partitions without triggering a red screen of death with the message 'your device is corrupted and cannot boot'.

    At that point, the only option is to unlock bootloader. But, if a user had previously disabled OEM unlock in Developer settings, then unlocking becomes unavailable, and so does flashing via fastboot. In other words, if your phone gets into the hands of an adversary, their only option is to use MSM tool to make the phone work again, but no access to your data or any other partition.

    April 11 New release V-19, previous one removed. Should fix graphic glitch related to recovery.

    Actually, you can use any recovery you want: TWRP/Lineage or whatever. Just keep in mind that if you don't have OOS-11 firmware in both slots, you will always get problems. MSM flash takes care of one slot only. So, you need OOS-11 in the other slot either by flashing via recovery (after initial reboot) or updating OTA.

    Also, you don't need MSM, if you can't boot into recovery. You simply boot in fastboot and flash whatever recovery you want.


    This release fixes Safetynet issues. Confirmed by a Oneplus 8 user: here

    Dev should really consider dropping support for 8 pro. Clearly just because his device doesn't have the issue he thinks everyone's device should be the same 😂.
    Two people have mentioned the same issues and instead of fixing it he's showing screenshots. DFKM.
    I'M DONE
    Lol take it easy man, he's just sharing a ROM, theres no obligation here.

    As frustrating as it can be to not have working features it's still an "as is" ROM, no need for hostilities.

    I haven't personally installed this ROM so no i can't comment on features missing or not but i can on how to address them, there are ways and means to get a point across without sounding deserving of something you aren't.

    If you've clean installed and there are missing features then just mention that, if it gets fixed then great if not then that's just the way it is, no ones under any obligation here, speaking down to dev's who've put the hours / days / weeks in to share something for FREE is what makes people leave and not share their work, XDA wouldn't be a very good place to be if dev's didn't do what they do and even worse if they didn't have the support of people who flash their work, please bare that in mind.

    A very good morning to you all! Some posts have dissipated left and right but I hope we didn't cause too much (collateral) damage. I hope y'all got it out of your system and feel better. Now, let's move on and stick to a more civil way of communicating. With mutual respect and all that.

    About donation features: YES, IT'S ALLOWED! Sometimes. Shocker, I know. The moderation team may be tasked with – among many many many other things 😬 – shutting down projects that have only the goal of making money but this does not mean that donation features are forbidden. We expect that core features and most important functionality of any release remains free. We also understand that developing software is hard work which should be rewarded. Our goal is to find a balance and we do this together, as a community. To achieve this we often work with developers to find the best outcome for everyone.
    Please do not throw around accusations in someone's thread and never threaten another member with sanctions. That's just not okay. Even mods will avoid this. It may come as a surprise to you but we're not the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 designed to terminate your threads, posts and accounts followed by a taunting “Hasta la vista, baby”. We're human beings with elevated forum rights and a lot of XDA experience that interact with all its members with the goal of keeping this kickass community a pleasant experience for all.

    Thank you for your time and I sincerely hope we can show more kindness to one another. [cheesy]“Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring to change a person’s life.” – Jackie Chan[/cheesy] If you still feel the need to discuss further, please feel free to drop me a PM. And if really needed, "I'll be back" ;)

    Kind regards and stay safe!
