@jrior001 Thats great news. Thanks for all your hard work! Much appreciated.

Can you say some words about the encryption problem? What was wrong with LOS' 15.1 way of doing it?
I saw you reverted the GPS blobs. Does that mean GPS fixing is faster now?

Edit: As to my question that I posted initially: Seems the problem is in front of the screen, found the answer already... ;)

We missed a change in 15.1 prior to it shipping that pretty much put every legacy device using he encryption in a bad place that can't be recovered from.

For gps, yes it does seem to be locking faster and tracking better while driving.

Patiently waiting for feedback before I update the phone of my wife. She's still using LOS 14.1, is it possible to update to LOS 16 (the phone is encrypted)?
Its possible that may work, but it is not a tested and supported upgrade scenario. I would highly advise taking every necessary backup precaution should you attempt that.

What is the latest bootloader LineageOS works with?
I can confirm that it doesn't boot when coming from the last stock firmware:
Code:
ro.build.display.id=TOS373K - N2G48B

Regarding TWRP

Thanks a lot @jrior001 for giving us LineageOS 16!

Before I update, I have a few questions regarding TWRP:
  1. What's the difference between the TWRP version linked in the wiki and the official one? When upgrading to 15.1, the official version did not work
  2. Will TWRP be able to read encrypted partitions or does it still suffer form the problem you mentioned here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=77967754&postcount=111

Regards,
Zapp

The one from the wiki decrypts 16.0 and 14.1 but nothing will decrypt 15.1.

Keep in mind the big red note in the OP if you are encrypted on 15.1, a full wipe/format will be requited to move to 16.0.

Awesome guys. Finally we have gps again. Thanks thanks thanks. :D

I did run into an issue today. I was making videos and photos of hawaiian hula performance and after that of my girlfriend with a beautiful hawaiian sunset in the background. It turned out to be to much beauty for the phone as it rebooted when trying to make a photo. ;) After the phone turned on again all the videos and photos where nowhere to be found. That is all the info i can give at this moment. When i find out more i will give an update.

Update: The reboots occur very frequently when using the photo app. I have to say that I flashed over LOS 15.1. Am I the only one with these issues or can other people confirm the bug?
Update2: Just saw that I had HDR enabled. That might have been the problem.

I got a similar problem:

after upgrading from 15.1 to 16.0 following the howto under - removed - I get sometimes - it doesn't seem to be correlated with the use of a certain app - a very annoying crash:

The display goes black, then it shows the Lock Screen for one second, then it goes dark again... and so on.
There is no other solution than opening the case, removing the battery, putting the battery back again and then starting the phone.

This is a really really annoying bug, much more annoying then the occasional reboots of LineageOS 15.1.

Please fix that. I am willing to support the develpers with any informations, if somebody tells me what to do.

I followed the instructions from the link exactly and now I have spent the long weekend looking to fix:
"Failed to mount '/system' (No such device)"

I installed TWRP (3.3.0-0) per this post (https://forum.xda-developers.com/wil...1/post72537703) and I am trying to install lineage os, which fails with:
"Updater process ended with ERROR: 7"

And then the above in response to "Updating partition details".

The latest recommended twrp is linked on the lineage wiki, https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/crackling/install

If you still get errors, please post the entire message. "ERROR 7” is a general assert failure but if you read the rest of the message it usually tells you why it failed. If it doesn't make sense post it here or pull the recovery.log and post that here for me.

"adb pull /tmp/recovery.log" will pull the log.

Thanks! I did "fix" it in the meantime...

For the record, the version of TWRP is the latest (at current time of writing). But for anyone else stumbling on the thread for a fix..


I took the heavy-handed approach, not only wiped the /system partition, but reformatted as ext4 (it was previously splashfs)

Flashed Lineageos 16, GApps-9-arm64.nano, and the root add-in, wiped Dalvik and Cache, reboot to System.

But it only rebooted to Bootloader, no matter how I did it. So then I flashed crDroid4.7 just because it was in the folder even though I knew nothing about it. Wipe Dalvik&Cache, reboot to system and happy days, it chugged for a while before giving me a new set-up experience.

So, I flashed the Pie crDroid (5.3) and I am off to the races. crDroid is LineageOS based, so do not ask me why one boots and the other does not, but my Crackling Wileyfox has life again. So, I am somewhat using LineageOS and very grateful for all the people who put the work in.

I can't get it working, it always fails at 47%. I tried different builds and it's always the same problem. I format the data and wiped cache & system before I did the sideload. TWRP version is the one from the lineageos wiki.
Any idea what could be the problem?

Thanks!

Code:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>adb sideload lineage-16.0-20190429-nightly-crackling-signed.zip
serving: 'lineage-16.0-20190429-nightly-crackling-signed.zip' (~47%) adb: failed to read command: No error


Edit: found this link https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=69648733&postcount=47 and I'll try it tomorrow again.

Edit2: didn't work. Copied the build and opengapps Pico to the SD card and flashed it via TWRP. Worked and the phone runs again.

Persistent mobile network issue

I upgraded from 15.1 to 16.0 at the first opportunity. Upon returning to France from a trip to neighbouring Switzerland I saw that my French mobile service had automatically switched to piggy-backing on it's Swiss roaming partner. This has cost implications and so I've now restored my previous installation of 15.1.

The problem I have with ver. 16 is that I cannot manually select the mobile network. Has this affected anyone else?

    Where is the download for the lineage recovery? I notice for other devices it is on the download page together with the updates but not for crackling. Have updated with TWRP and all went smoothlly am happy with it so far. Installation instructions required for the recovery as well.

    Lineage recovery shows up correctly on the download page since this morning. Instructions in the wiki also have been updated.
