You can use the Aurora Store store to download the app. As far as I am aware, you cannot switch between the vanilla and micrg via a dirty flash. The Aurora Store should be able to handle Google Play request handles from apps.

How are the haptics ? the nord is the first phone that I've used that has moderately good haptics and I wanted to know if its the same in this rom before trying it.

edit: haptics work well, I've flashed the vanilla version with pico gapps. Good rom!

Hi @MajorP93, awesome ROM! Thanks for your job I will for sure donate a few bucks, just keep this good work up.

With the microg version, the only thing I couldn't do so far is to install an apk to `/system/priv-app`. I tried to copy an apk from recovery, but on next reboot the apk is not installed. Is there a special way to do it? (magisk systemizer works, but don't want to root my phone for now)

Extracting boot.img from ROM zip (by dumping the payload), patching it with magisk and flashing it using fastboot is the recommended method for installing magisk.

The ROM itself is working great so thanks for all your hard work! However, when I try to boot my patched boot.img, or install magisk using the zip through recovery flashing method, the system UI crashes and WiFi stops working.

I used https://github.com/vm03/payload_dumper to extract the boot image and then the Magisk APK to patch it.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here but fairly new to all of this so not sure what information you need from me. I have tried with both Magisk v23.0 and v22.1 but get the same outcome.

I managed to install magisk by sideloading the apk (don't even need to rename it to *.zip), it worked properly.

Many thanks for this @MajorP93 - it's buttery smooth and for the first time in a year since I bought my Nord the fingerprint reader works properly!

I've one oddity to report. My device is an AC2003, but when I mount it on my laptop over MTP it appears as an AC2001. I believe that's a variant for another region with support for different 5G bands. Could this mean that the rom isn't supporting the right 5G bands for my device?

PS. I'd love to buy you a beer but can't see a donate link anywhere. Mind reposting it?

Edit: nvm, found it on the Telegram channel announcement. Enjoy a beer or two on me.

Thanks for advice, but this solution doesn't work for me :/
Maybe you're running into the same issue as me. My laptop has a usb-c port on it, and that's the cable I was using. I was getting a weird BAR 13 error (no space for..., failed to assign...).

On a whim, I decided to try a USB-A to USB-C cable and everything was fine after that. Something about the USB-C/C connection that my computer didn't like.

I hope that helps.

I'm getting a lot of screen stutter and lag when I use picture in picture - Google Maps, Video Chat, doesn't matter. Sometimes it's smooth despite PiP, most of the time it's extremely laggy.

Activating Profile HWUI rendering in the developer options shows some graphs that correllate with the stuttering/lag:

The first screenshot shows smooth rendering, the second one shows laggy rendering with Google Maps Navigation PiP (with the pixelation added by myself for privacy reasons).

Does anyone else have this issue?

    You care a lot about privacy and security? You want an up to date LineageOS build that will not hold you back in regards of user experience?
    Then LineageOS 18.1 microG edition is right for you! (Non-microG vanilla LineageOS version also available).​
    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, 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.

    HOW TO GET GAPPS IN THE VANILLA VERSION OF THIS ROM:
    Reference: *Link*

    Follow these steps:
    -Download GApps from here: *Link* (OpenGApps Pico, Android 11, ARM64)
    -Boot into bootloader: adb reboot bootloader
    -Flash the recovery image: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    -Format data / do a factory reset in recovery
    -Reboot into recovery: click advanced --> reboot to recovery
    -Go to Apply update and choose Apply from ADB
    -Sideload the vanilla version of the rom: adb sideload rom.zip
    -Reboot into recovery again (!important do not start LineageOS yet)
    -Sideload the GApps package you just downloaded: adb sideload gapps.zip



    UPDATING THE ROM:

    Unless I say the opposite in the update announcement, this ROM can be updated using the dirty flash method.

    In order to do so, follow these steps:
    -Download the new version of the ROM you are using (microG/vanilla)
    -Reboot into recovery: adb reboot recovery
    -DO NOT CLICK ON FACTORY RESET / WIPE DATA
    -Flash the Zip-File of the new ROM: adb sideload rom.zip

    Important: if you are using the vanilla version of the ROM,
    you have to re-flash GApps after updating and before starting LineageOS:
    -Reboot into recovery: click advanced --> reboot to recovery
    -Download GApps from the link above
    -Sideload the GApps package you just downloaded: adb sideload gapps.zip



    PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE:

    - I might apply as official LineageOS 18.1 avicii maintainer, in the meantime I will keep this unofficial port updated, include security patches and fix issues.
    - Updates on a monthly basis
    - avb_custom_key (Re-Lock Bootloader) and OTA updates might get set up later on.​
