Razer Phone 2
So apparently, LineageOS truely does not store old versions due to bandwidth and storage. Makes sense...

So I went and looked around:
- Archive.org has a few useful links:
* https://archive.org/details/lineage-16.0-20200325-nightly-beryllium-signed
* https://web.archive.org/web/20210708061619/https://download.lineageos.org/aura (adjust the date)
* https://archive.org/details/lineageos171-20220217
* https://www.reddit.com/r/LineageOS/comments/kajf5m/_/gfbjrpt
The aforementioned FAQ: https://wiki.lineageos.org/faq.html...s-droppedits-lineageos-version-was-deprecated

Hot take: LineageOS' FAQ is worded quite rudely... o_O Anyway, I hope these help!

Thank you @IngwiePhoenix

I appreciate you sharing your research and findings! The only other thing I would like now is to find the latest Lineage 18.1 for RP1 (cheryl) as well, but I will ask for that in the appropriate forum as it is off-topic here.

For context: I actually don't have a Razer Phone for myself (yet) but I am planning on buying one soon if I can find one in good condition. Of course it will be better for me to purchase the newer RP2 but I may end up with RP1 if I happen to find a better deal. Which is why I wanted to achieve the latest Lineage 18.1 builds for both devices whilst there are still people who can re-upload them.

    Hello everyone and happy new year!

    It took a long time, but I finally found time to debug the issues, so next build should contain fixes for the following bugs:
    * Flashlight not working
    * Rear camera using telephoto lens instead of normal lens

    There will also be a new setting implemented in Display settings, where you can select refresh rate (supports switching between 30/40/48/50/60/90/120 fps)

    Next I'll be looking into integrating chroma RGB settings and continue working on android 12.

    After almost one whole year since I got the device, bringup is finally done and we can enjoy a newer android version than stock 9.0.

    Builds will be available once next weekly build cycle starts.

    Thanks to the people that donated for the device and thanks to @npjohnson for all the testing and figuring out some issues.

    So far there are five major aura-specific bugs that stand out to me that have yet to be resolved, two of which have gitlab issues created for them. I will try and capture the camera bug and logcat it, and see what I can do for the other bugs.

    For a refresher:
    • Flashlight does not work, the button in the status bar pull-down menu tray says the camera is constantly in use and is grayed out.
    • The back camera is primarily using the wrong lens, namely the zoom lens, forcing the camera to be zoomed in at all times, making it hard to take pictures that aren't blurry and distorted.
    • There is an audio bug where if audio levels are below a certain threshold, it simply will not play any audio at all.
    • The phone completely locks up when watching certain video playbacks, and has to have the power button held down for a hard reset every time it happens. For me personally, this has happened numerous times watching videos on Snapchat, but I know it happens on YouTube and other media, like Google Photos.
    • An SD card formatted as internal storage will not allow apps to be stored on it, and when attempted a prompt will appear, saying "Not enough storage space".
    These bugs are quite a major hindrance in being able to enjoy Lineage on aura properly and a major frustration point in using the phone as a daily driver. Hopefully they can be resolved soon.
    1. Aware, looking into it.
    2. Aware, looking into it.
    3. Didn't know, looking into it.
    4. Link me a video, 4k costa rica video on youtube plays fine for me...
    5. Yeah, we weren't intended to support adoptable storage afaik, I'll go disable it.

    I might have jumped the gun creating this thread, build will be probably available on Sunday :/
