LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1.2 (Nougat), 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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

I have included a gesture navigation system ported from CarbonRom, you will need to flash one of the following zips to disable the NavBar fully so you can get your screen back to use it fully.

Disable NavBar

Enable NavBar

Settings > Gestures > Carbon Gestures is where the configuration for it is

Thank you very much. I am just downloading. I had modified the stock installation with magisk and a module to remove the navbar.

But a lineageOS is much better for me, because no gapps.

edit: flashed it. Had a little problem that early birds may have too. I got an error 7 (device name property: gemini) because I had the first released twrp version as recovery. After flashing the up to date twrp-3.2.1 recovery, the device name was 'geminipda' and flashing works fine.

edit2: I'm using a german hw keyboard layout. The gemini keyboard driver version 1.0.7 comes with the image. Fn keys not working for me with this driver. Planet Computers released a new keyboard driver (1.0.12) that works for me in stock image. I had to root the lineageos first to be able to uninstall the old version (key signing conflict on install). After installing the new version the keyboard is working like it should, have all Fn keys now. Maybe you can integrate the newer keyboard driver into next image. Information on Planet Computers and the driver on Google Play.

For me, GPS seems to be working, but phone/SIM functions (voice/SMS/cellular data) are still not working in new build. Otherwise great!

Working great so far. Very stable and quick development. Glad I can help test :)
Can't wait for first 'stable' build (it's actually very stable already..)!

Is there anything special that has to be done to get the Function Keys working? I do have version 1.0.14 of the Gemini Keyboard from the ROM, but still cannot use Fn+[Key] to get to symbols.

I'm considering going the option of Lineage so I can remap keyboard combinations.

Has anyone done this already or have a recommendation other than Xposed + Xposed Additions? I know it's not supported with this ROM but I don't know of other options. The stock Gemini Keyboard is all sorts of messed up regarding function keys and each one matching up with printed symbols. There desperately needs to be a combo for rotating screen, IMO.

Does the function keys work at all on Lineage?

I am also interested in the very same. I'm trying to get my emacs config working well on my phone, and although the software works through termux (which one can get without needing gapps) a lot of the keybinds on the device are screwed up. I don't mind scripting the individual actions through tasker for volume and brightness etc, but I really want a fully reconfigurable keyboard + voice assist button. I would like to work on this project, but I have no idea how to get involved.

Yes, I would be interested in that too. Also, how does ti work with updates? Do they need to be customized for Gemini or would we get them from upstream automatically? And what about uppgrade to 15.1 - that would depend on porting the stock Android firmware from Planet?

Sad to see this thread has gone cold. It's quite an interesting piece of kit to play around with, particularly when it comes to custom ROMs. Who knows what we have in store for the recently funded Cosmo PDA.

Yeah. I just got my gemini PDA today and wanted to flash Lineage, but now that I see the ROM doesn't even have working phone functions I'm a little bit disappointed (not that I actually expect anything, I'm really thankful for any dev who spends their time on this). :(
Even other rare device eventually got a few fully working ROMs.

I'm still running stock rom + debian and honestly not using the gemini much due to several disappointments with the software support and some parts of the hardware design. I booted it up to use while my oneplus 3 charges and thought I'd check iin on LineageOS support. I wonder if there's a reason for the community not doing much for this thing. Stuck on old Android, old Linux, old Debian...

Factory-reset failed and Lineage-flashing also (triple-boot system)

Hello,
i am new here and not so good in english, so sorry for that :crying:
But i have since a few days the Gemini PDA only Wifi and installed a triple boot. In the first boot in took a rooted Android, in the second boot Kali and in the last one TWRP Recovery to flash Lineage. I have still a Sony Xperia E1 with Lineage, it is not the first time i used & flashed Lineage on a phone. Back to the Gemini. The first two boot-partitions are working as they should. TWRP is also working. But the factory-reset always failed, which is also the reason the the installation of Lineage still not work. Has someony an idea why the factory-reset in failing?

Thanks for your help,
mediateker
