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

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. If you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Wiki for more details.


IMPORTANT NOTES
1. lineage-18.1 comes with adb root that you can enable in developer options, but if you want root for apps, you can install the magisk manager apk, then follow these boot.img patching instructions.



Downloads
pixel 3 - blueline: https://sourceforge.net/projects/razorloves-lineage/files/blueline/

pixel 3 xl - crosshatch: https://sourceforge.net/projects/razorloves-lineage/files/crosshatch/


gapps zip: (optional): https://sourceforge.net/projects/ra...n_gapps-arm64-11.0-nano-20201121.zip/download
Google Fi addon: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ra...-gapps-addon-arm64-11.0-20201103.zip/download (if you're on Google Fi, install this zip right after installing gapps zip.)
Android Auto addon: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ra...-gapps-addon-arm64-11.0-20201121.zip/download (if you want android auto, install this after installing gapps zip)


Instructions
1. boot into lineage recovery. (if initial lineage install or upgrading from lineage-17.1, do this: fastboot flash --slot all boot boot.img, then select Recovery Mode)
2. if initial lineage install, factory reset to format data.
3. install rom zip.
4. if you want gapps, select 'Advanced', then select 'Reboot into recovery', then install the gapps zips.
5. you're done... select 'Reboot system now'.



Known issues
1. when you format data in lineage recovery, you might see "cant send spi message". you can ignore it.
2. if you don't install gapps, the esim manager app and carrier services app will crash because they need gapps, so just disable them with these commands:
adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.google.android.euicc
adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.google.android.ims

On crosshatch alternate build it's working very smooth and incredible well for first build, so far the only problem it's that gaming heats faster than usual.

New build with November security patch level. :good:


crosshatch - i still dont know if the crosshatch builds even work. no reports on it yet, so no new builds. waiting on you guys. lol
Thank you so much, it works fine on crosshatch, any updates are highly appreciated!
For me, it is an exclusion criteria if there is no root and no lineageos available for a device.
____

The only problem for me was to use the wrong version of Magisk ending up in a non booting device.
So if you update to lineage-18 and want to get root, you will want to take the canary version of magisk manager to patch the boot.img.

Can anyone confirm if Android Auto works with this? A lot of the Android 10 roms did not, and that was a huge deal breaker for me, as I use Android auto daily.

lineage recovery won't boot.

Hi razorloves. Thanks for all your hard work. But I'm having serious issues booting into any lineage recovery (I've tried multiple nightly builds from 17.1 and multiple boot.img from this thread). All are failing. I do fastboot flash boot boot.img (I've also tried both boot_a and boot_b) but once i reboot it goes back into fastboot and give me an error with the boot img. Yet when I do htis with twrp-3.3.0-0-blueline.img i boot into twrp fine. (only issue there being that the zip files for lineage os fail to flash when installing from twrp. I've also tried with stock recovery and that give the same error as twrp).

I should also note that when i do fastboot boot boot.img the boot just hangs and never goes through.

Any suggestions?

Razorloves contacted me directly and help me sort out the issue. My problem is I first needed to flash to the CORRECT stock rom. (I was using the oldest android 9 rom. for 17.1 I needed newest 10 rom, for this I needed newest 11 rom).

Thanks,

Is this a step that everyone needs to follow when upgradeing from LineageOS 17.1 to 18, or only if your still on OEM?

the migration changes are still in-work, so something might go wrong if you don't wipe data. you can follow the progress here: https://review.lineageos.org/q/topic:"eleven-db-migration"


Android Auto is not working for me. Crashes immediately after opening. I attached a logcat that should contain three failures right in a row.
thx for log. will look into it.

only when you're on stock rom
