Hi, I'm still running a stock rooted OOS 10 (I know... I got really lazy!). It's high time for an OS upgrade, and I'm looking to Lineage as the custom OS of choice. I wanna run it rooted, so I'll need to use Magisk to get SafetyNet working. I will also use vanilla version of LOS. I have a couple questions accordingly:

- Does Magisk play well with this LOS 19.1 build on the Nord?
- Is it still the case that you can't flash Magisk with the recovery included in the OP?
- If so, am I best off extracting the payload file and flashing it otherwise?
- And can I use another custom recovery after installing LOS for backup/restore purposes?

Thanks!

Magisk works well with LOS 19.1. It´s a perfect ROM, my daily driver for months now.
I flashed the newest version of LOS and Magisk via the sideload function of Pitchblack recovery without problems. Can recommend this.

Nice to see there's active development to get Official status again for our Nord phones. I'm starting to get fed up with the stock rom ever since the switch to Android 12, and although I hate wiping my phone and reinstalling it (that's why I gave up on non-stock roms), the state of OOS 12 is so crappy nowadays that I'm willing to put in the work to reinstall everything.
So far I still haven't found a foolproof (yeah I know myself very well 😉) to backup apps and their settings in an easy way, so reinstalling seems to be the way to go.
Thus far what I've read is very promising, as I'm quite depandent on the use of my banking apps (including Google Pay / NFC), Android Auto and good BT support (I've had so many issues with BT in the past when using custom roms).
I can stretch using OOS 12 for a while, but will keep my eyes on the topic to follow the progression. Thx for all the work so far guys.

Does Titanium no longer work? I've always used that. I haven't updated in a while (I'm on Android 10 still lol), but that's my plan after I flash LOS and Magisk etc.

Non rooted phone, so I didn't even try it tbh.
As I don't really need root on my phone atm, and I like the experience of getting easy ota updates I didn't bother looking at titanium. If rooting is the only solution then titanium is prob the way to go, but I hoped that something after all these years something easy would've popped up that didn't need root.

You won't be able to do a backup without root. I just moved from Redmi Note 4 (Lineage 18) to 1+ Nord (Lineage 19.1) and transferred all my apps (including data) with Swift Backup. Backed up on old phone, moved account folder of Swift Backup to new phone and restored all my apps.

Ah non rooted, yeah I hear you. I recall an app that some used to use that didn't require root – think it was called Helium, but no idea if still active.

I've just discovered an open source app that looks decent (root required), Neo Backup, available on F-droid and Github (formerly called OAndBackupx). Nicer interface than Titanium, which I know used to have issue with split apks (dunno if still does), while Neo reportedly has no such issues. The filtering options are still the best on Titanium though.

Do you (/anyone else) have any idea the best way to do a whole device backup in a recovery (i.e. Nandroid) these days? It's the main thing putting me off flashing a new ROM. The top post in the thread with custom TWRP here still lists backup as non functioning. Any of the other custom recoveries do this?

If you are rooted you can also use SwiftBackup, available on Playstore. It does its job nicely. Sorry, overlooked that someone already recommended it.

Hi @MajorP93 I was wondering if support will be extended to LOS20 for the Nord device, or you don't have any plans towards that. Thanks in advance for your answer

I finally flashed this ROM (vanilla, with Magisk) and I'm loving it. So much smoother, and I'm even giving gesture navigation a go this time (previously I used a combination of navbar and LMT, which I honestly do still miss).

I only have one problem right now though, and that's my fingerprint scanner being very temperamental. It seems to be worst with my right thumb (i.e. the main fingerprint I need haha!).

I've searched the thread but can't see quite the same issue – it isn't that it becomes unresponsive or fails to work for certain apps. It's that even after registering it anew, trying it out several times, it still only works for some fingers about 30% of the time. I can't work out what I'm doing wrong.

Alla fine ho flashato questa ROM (vanilla, con Magisk) e la adoro. Molto più fluido, e questa volta sto anche provando la navigazione gestuale (in precedenza usavo una combinazione di barra di navigazione e LMT, che onestamente mi manca ancora).

Ho solo un problema in questo momento, e questo è il mio scanner di impronte digitali che è molto capriccioso. Sembra essere peggiore con il mio pollice destro (cioè l'impronta digitale principale di cui ho bisogno ahah!).

Ho cercato nel thread ma non riesco a vedere lo stesso problema: non è che non risponde o non funziona per determinate app. È che anche dopo averlo registrato di nuovo, provandolo più volte, funziona ancora solo per alcune dita circa il 30% delle volte. Non riesco a capire cosa sto facendo male.
Se hai magisk potrebbe essere la correzione safetynet , prova questo https://github.com/Displax/safetynet-fix/releases/tag/v2.3.1-MOD_2.0

    UPDATE 2023-01-22

    New major release LineageOS 20.0


    Changelog:

    Both versions:
    - Initial release
    - Android 13

    Download links to the new versions have been added to the original post.

    Please note:
    While upgrading from our latest LineageOS 19.1 release to this LineageOS 20.0 release using the dirty flash method worked in our tests it is strongly recommended to backup your important data before doing so.
    If possible do a clean flash instead as it can prevent issues when upgrading to a new major release / new version of Android.

    Just made an account to say thanks for all the hard work maintaining this!

    The upgrade from 19.1 to 20.0 using the dirty flash method went flawless and I've had 0 issues with the ROM.

    Fyi for people on the forum, but not in the Telegram group.

    Quote from Phillip (Telegram group):
    > All the bugs you guys reported in the last few days won't be processed right now.
    > A build based on OOS12 sources will follow soon.
    > Then we go from there and see if the bugs are fixed.

    About the bugs, I'm only aware of two:
    - Media playback sometimes stops working (confirmed by 4 people, can be fixed by reboot)
    - screencasting is broken

    Nothing serious, you can absolutely live with that.
