I will make efforts to become official again with the release of LineageOS 19.
I will start working on porting LineageOS 19 to the Nord once it reached stable state.
Right now it is in experimental state.
LineageOS core team did not give an ETA but I expect it to be released in April or shortly afterwards.
Hi,
Would it be possible to have an official ROM without any of the google spyware (so vanilla only please)?
Thanks

Thanks for the new version, unfortunately Webview seems broken and Apps using it are crashing. (Tested with the vanilla version)

Edit1: As a quick workaround I disabled webview and installed this version: (Edit2: problem fixed)

Thanks for reporting!
I uploaded a fixed version of the vanilla ROM.
The download link can be found in the first post of this thread (main link updated).

This issue is solved now.

Hi!
Yes, you can flash this ROM when you are running OOS 11.1.6.6.
@MajorP93 First, thanks for your hard work! Very much appreciated!

Regarding your answer above: Is there a suggested vendor firmware version to flash before installing your ROM? If not, which vendor firmware version are you using on the Oneplus Nord you are testing your builds on? Couldn't find any info in the OP.

LOS 18.1 is based on Android 11, so the best choice should be an 11-based firmware/modem/baseband/RIL.
In my opinion, the latest one if possible. ;)

Since the vendor blobs / firmware is baked into the ROM it is not required to flash a specific version before installing the ROM.
You can even install the ROM when coming from OOS 10 or 12 (beta).

Please do note that if you experience issues (rare case) after coming from an Android 10 or 12 based ROM it can be required to flash the ROM to the second slot of the phone aswell. (Slot A and B should get flashed in that case).

In most cases it should work just fine.

Hi. Regarding to your answer @MajorP93 : i tried /e/ OS from the e Foundation, but i don't like the look and feel. For this rom downgrade to Android 10 was a must. Now, if i want to flash LOS 18.1, do i have to upgrade first to Android 11 again (because of firmware and vendors stuff)? I think it would be safer than with old firmware. How will i do this best?
Thanks for your answers.

Edit: i figured it out, did first update via fastboot and then installed this LineageOS. Works great but i also installed GCam Mod because pictures with build-in camera are not that good.

Thank you very much for your work! I will try to replace my official LOS 17.1 by this ROM this week. Does anybody have a suggestion about which GCam version might work well with this ROM?

First experience, managed to flash just fine. However the flame gapps keeps crashing on my Nord during the "Google services" settings stage. After choosing "Backup and storage" options and location settings and scanning etc. it asks for a PIN and then shows the same screen again. After that I am stuck in a loop between the settings screen and PIN confirmation.

What is the exact version of the FlameGapps you have used?

New major release LineageOS 19.1
First of all, thank you.
Even though it is not recommended and yes, I know it can cause problems, I tried to install the vanilla version 19 dirty over version 18. But it does not work, neither with PE recovery, nor with Orange Fox. The update process ends pretty quickly after entering step 2. With v18 it takes quite a while here until the update is finished.
So my question, does data need to be unencrypted (i.e. wiped) to install v19?

Did you perform clean flash and exactly follow the steps of the second post of this thread?

I did the following, which I think follows your instructions :

1. Boot to bootloader
2. installation PE recovery
3. factory reset
4. ROM sideload
5. Reboot to bootloader
6. installation PE recovery again (because it was overwritten by LOS recovery)
7. boot to recovery
8. FlameGapps sideload
9. Boot to LOS

Will try the MicroG version, but there are a few use cases which I think won't work (Google FamilyLink is one I use a lot for my kids and I think it won't work with MicroG or chromecast from the Netflix app).

1) it is not only not recommended, it is not supported
2) if you wipe data and install ROM, data will be encrypted as this is the default setting of LOS
3) like mentioned in the update post, clean flash (wipe data and then sideload ROM) is required for this. Most people I talked to backup their data on 18.1 using their app of choice and re-import data in 19.1

    @MajorP93 Upstream LOS provides a 'dirty' upgrade path from 18.1 to 19.1 because data structure is basically the same. Why is wiping data necessary when upgrading from 18.1 to 19.1 using the builds you are providing? Did the build/signing keys change?

    Edit: Ah, found the info in the telegram group. So, the signing keys changed between builds. Wouldn't it be possible to export the new keys and provide a migration.zip for people switching from 18.1 to 19.1 as proposed here: https://lineageosroms.com/signing-builds/#changing-keys

    Would be possible.
    I do not plan to do so though.
    There are other things regarding this ROM that are more important while my time is limited.

    Also backing up your data and migrating really isn't that hard.
    Takes 1-2 hours max. and having a backup is important anyway.

    Great update - thank you for your continued work on this.

    Working well for me - I didn't have any trouble with the install of vanilla+gapps by following the instructions in the second post.

    I actually tried NikGapps Full (NikGapps-full-arm64-12.1-20220501-signed.zip) instead of Omni. It worked first time. I wanted Android Auto to work, which is only in NikGapps Full. It wasn't working with FlameGapps for me. With NikGapps Full I have Android Auto working
    I've finally switched to LOS19 too, doing a clean install and reinstalling all apps manually. Backing up and restoring has always been fairly hit and miss for me over the years so I tend to avoid that.

    19.1 is working very nicely for me, thank you @MajorP93, @Keertesh and @KakatkarAkshay for the great work!

    I noticed too late that Android Auto won't work with NikGapps-omni. Is there a recommended way of switching to NikGapps-full without wiping and starting over?

    I'm asking mainly because Gapps has to be flashed before booting LOS for the first time - suggesting that flashing Gapps might fail after LOS has already been booted.

    Can I just flash NikGapps-full on top of a working LOS install with NikGapps-omni, or could I dirty flash LOS19.1-20220518 again on top of itself, as if I'm dirty flashing for an update, and then install NikGapps-full?

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.

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

    Follow these steps:
    -Download GApps from here: *Link* (NikGapps SL, Canary, Omni Edition)
    -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 bootloader: click advanced --> reboot to bootloader (!important do not start LineageOS yet)
    -Flash the recovery image again: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    -Enter recovery mode again and choose apply update, apply from adb
    -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
