LineageOS 14.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1. (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *
 */

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.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

Requirements

* You must read this post completely
* You must have flashed a stock MM update to update the firmware to a version that is compatible with these builds. Search XDA for the best way to do so for your device.
* You must use the search first and make sure your question has not been answered yet!
* Do NOT ask for the availability of features or if any specific app works - we implement / announce new features when we want to
* Use the latest TWRP available (3.0.2.0), else expect issues
* If you have a problem, do not ask if someone else has it. Post with logs or don't post at all!


Code:
[COLOR=RED][B]Important note:[/B][/COLOR]
Stock Firmware B360 and B370 are known to cause bootloops!
(Generally: if your stock ROM supports VoLTE it is likely that it is also affected!)
All others might work, please do not ask in here how to up- or downgrade!

Known Issues / NOT working / "Bugs"

* Search the thread!
* Anything running VoLTE firmware
* You tell me! (See "Other Issues")

Everything else WORKS, do NOT ask if anything (feature, function, ...) specific is working or not (Search the thread if you want to make sure and if you don't find it: test it yourself)


Other Issues?

Before posting on this thread, make sure of a few things:
You've utilized the search function of the forums. Nothing irritates us more than lazy people who do not search for an answer before asking or ask the same question over and over again.
If you are the only one having a problem: boot into recovery, wipe data/factory reset, reflash the rom/gapps and nothing else. Boot up and see if the problem persists.

LOGS LOGS LOGS!!!!
Press BOTH volume keys + power key - it will vibrate very short. Wait until a notification appears that the bugreport is ready, send it to your mail and post it.
Alternatively go to dev options (press "build number" in "About phone" 7 times to activate it), activate the switch "Shortcut for bugreport", then go to Settings->Keys->Power key and activate it there as well. Long press power-key and then use the new menu item.

Only if rooted:
Use this: SysLog by Tortel

If you have a hard reboot (to the vendor boot logo, not the LineageOS boot logo), use adb or any other file explorer tool to pull a copy of "console-ramoops" after the reboot and provide that.

Code:
adb pull /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops

Note: We will not support any kind of modification on the ROM not done by our sources. If you are running XPosed, Kernel Booster or whatever occurs to you, we won't support you in any way. The problem will in every case be treated as the additional softwares' fault (because often it is!)


Changelog (for both, official and unofficial builds!)

* Changelog

Alternatively: (this is the real source, so if you have issues with the link above, check those below)
* Gerrit (All)
* Device tree
* Kernel


Download Links

Again: if you need Google-Apps, install them after flashing the ROM and BEFORE the first reboot

ROM:
Official download site

Google apps addon:
(Note: Not required to run the ROM)
We are using Open GApps (Link) Arm64 version. (make sure to use 64bit when using other packages), others might also be working

Note: In case you want to use any gapps, YOU MUST install the right gapps the first time that you flash a marshmallow ROM. Do not boot with an older gapps or without one and then try to install it later.
Note: If you install a package which replaces the default dialer (mostly "Stock Gapps") you have to go to Settings->Apps->Gear-Icon and set the new dialer as a default telephony app to prevent force closing of apps

Root addon:
Official download site - our device is ARM64

Don't use SuperSU or other tools, otherwise expect bootloops!

Coming from unofficial 14.1 or CM13?

When you already had an unofficial (pre-official) build installed (or are about to upgrade from CM13 the first time), feel free to install the " experimental" build. As we have tightened security, this build is meant to preserve your data during migration. After you have booted it once, please install the next official nightly to complete the procedure (and get rid of the watermark). Please note that this might fail so always take a backup first!
For more info visit this LINK

Update: The experimental builds are gone, you have to clean flash (full wipe) to install LineageOS


Important note

This is a development thread. This means it is NOT your personal support thread.
Questions about anything not related to LineageOS on kiwi will not be accepted nor be answered.
This includes topics like going back to stock, problems with third-party apps (e.g. Snapchat), ...
Also do not encourage people with such questions by answering them but report them to keep the thread clean!

We have tested the upgrade from CM-13.0 (official / unofficial) and a clean install.
It is possible to install LineageOS 14.1 over an existing installation of CM-13.0 by following those steps:

* Download the zip from the link
(* If you have Google Apps installed, you will need to update those as well, download a package for Android 7.1 ARM64 from OpenGApps for example)
* Push zip(s) to device
* Reboot to recovery
* Do a Backup of Boot, System, Data (optional but recommended)
* Choose Install and select the zip of LineageOS 14.1 and read next step before proceeding
* If you want Google Apps, it is required to install them BEFORE you boot into LineageOS the first time
* Install
* Clear cache / dalvik
* Reboot

Please make sure you are aware of the known and the possibility of unknown issues before considering installation!

Thanks OP. Have been running it since this morning and it's smooth. I installed both "previous" versions (the 498MB one still with CM and the first 496MB one).

You don't want to be running something that was randomly sitting on my download server earlier today. If your build date is before 3pm est then please download and install what is there now.

Earlier builds had problems.

General LineageOS issue, not only on our device. (Have reported it)
Please note that requesting something for any update (especially the "next") is not required, we priorize our work items without that ;)

About the fingerprint sensor, is it a safe guess that unless Huawei releases Nougat for our device, the fingerprint sensor won't work? Or is it something else?

    At this point all that is safe to assume is that it doesn't work and neither BadDaemon nor I have had a chance to investigate why.
    Well so happy, sometimes it's worth to wait for something. Both of you guys are awesome. This will now be going to a new era of awesomeness under new name. I hope you guys will be the same. ???

      The next build should fix the fingerprint sensor. Let me know if you have problems with that.

      As far as the audio goes, I personally am not seeing any problems with audio. BadDaemon does though and we haven't figured out why having him play the same audio file with the same app is different from me playing the same audio file with the same tool.

      Other than audio (which may or may not be a blocker for official builds), all I know of which is block official builds is that we are in permissive mode.

      Let me know if you know of something else that is broken.

      BIG UPDATE

      Hey guys,
      after a while without too much new stuff here is some big new thing:
      Thanks to Dobrosław Kijowski (@_dobo)we are now using an open-source version of our camera HAL.

      What does that mean?
      All of the scene modes are now available in our camera app which were previously not working and therefore not available.
      This includes Longshot and HDR!

      When do I get these cool features?
      a) If you are building for yourself just sync now and build away
      b) If not - wait for the next official build (unfortunately this means another week of waiting)

      What does it cost?
      Nothing, as usual.

      Anything else?
      With the last update you already got something new on camera as well (general LineageOS feature):
      A QR code and Barcode reader. Just tap the symbol which you also use to switch between picture and video to see it.

      Again, thanks to Dobrosław Kijowski for his work :)
      Best regards
      Michael

      Update

      Audio issues fixed
      After some testing (thanks @narangkunal) and intensive debugging, we chose to increase the idle frequencies a little bit.
      The additional power used is very little (we tested), the gain is huge (no more audio cracking when the screen is off)

      Wait for the next nightly and be happy :)
