Thanks! However, I can't even get through the first boot gapps setup process. It crashes when asking me to sign in, and then I'm stuck in a loop. Are you saying I should flash LineageOS first, install the APK, switch webview via developer options, then flash gapps?

Hey now that the camera HAL is back in mainline Linux, is there any chance of getting a rom with working Camera?

Hello, I too have two issues. First as reported, crashing when trying to sign into the google account. Installing and selecting correct webview apk as mentioned before, sorted this. However, second issue also reported is that the whole device is not smooth, its like refresh rate around 15 fps. So I decided to try older LOS 14, this makes the device smooth too. Weird.

Hi everyone, I'm not a full newb just super rusty...Need some guidance please.
I followed the instructions and got lineage-16.0-20191213-UNOFFICIAL-me176c-signed installed on my K013C but it just boots to the green Android symbol then the Lineageos boot animation then to the Android, Charger, Fastboot, Recovery, Reboot Into Firmware Interface , Reboot Into Rescue Mode, and Power Off menu. I booted back into twrp-3-3-1 and reset, then advanced wipe everything except the APD (ASUS Product Demo)" partition and my ext sdcard and installed lineage-16.0-20190922-UNOFFICIAL-me176c-signed only to be brought to the same Lineageos option menu as stated above. What have I done incorrectly? Much appreciate the support and help.

Thank you for you reply @ruchri I was under the impression that the (X) in the OP was for all variants of the ME176C(X) what ever they may be A-Z.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    About this project

    This is not a regular ROM. Usually, ROMs are based on certain components provided by the vendor (e.g. the heavily modified kernel and certain proprietary components). In contrast, this ROM makes use of a largely unmodified mainline Linux kernel together with many open-source components. Only a tiny bit of firmware is taken from the stock ROM.

    This has many advantages for security and maintainability, but also means that certain hardware features (e.g. Camera, GPS) are difficult to implement because they require significant effort and a lot of reverse engineering. Nevertheless, this ROM has reached a state where it is very much usable with the majority of functionality implemented.

    (See "Development" in the GitHub README for a more technical introduction...)

    New features
    • Android 9 (LineageOS 16.0) with latest security patches
    • Linux 4.19 kernel
    • Meltdown, Spectre, RIDL, Fallout, ... fixes
    • Vulkan graphics (experimental)
    • Less/no bloatware
    • Full backlight control (allows much lower brightness)
    • F2FS (with a compatible recovery)
    • Signature spoofing (allows using MicroG instead of proprietary Google Play Services)
    • WireGuard
    Tested features
    • Display, Backlight control
    • Graphics (OpenGL etc)
    • Touchscreen
    • WiFi, Bluetooth
    • Audio: Speaker, Headphones, Microphone
    • Battery, Charging
    • Sensors: Accelerometer, Magnetometer
    • Internal Storage/External Storage (SD Card)
    • USB, USB-OTG
    • Hardware video accelerated codecs
    Planned features (not working yet)
    • Suspend/Deep sleep states
    Not planned
    FAQ
    • How is the battery live? Screen-on time is probably similar if not longer, but there is a lot of battery drain in standby mode (even worse than on the ASUS system). I recommend that you turn off the tablet when you're not using it.
    • How do I obtain root access? There are various ways, but the recommended way for LineageOS is to flash addonsu. (Available below.) However, note that this will break SafetyNet. Use Magisk alternatively.
    • Can I use Netflix with this ROM? Yes, although you will need to build and flash the Widevine DRM addon manually (see below).
    Installation

    Preparation

    1. Make sure you are running Android Lollipop (5.0).
    2. You need an unlocked bootloader. LineageOS 16.0 requires me176c-bootstrap 0.3.0, included in me176c-boot 0.3.0. (The old "Intel" bootloader is no longer supported.)
    3. Install TWRP
    4. Make a full backup of the ASUS system. You may want to go back to it.
    5. Do a full factory reset. Wipe data and cache partitions.
    6. Install the main system using the flashable ZIP below.
    7. If needed, install additional addons not included with the main system (see below).
    Download
    Addons

    There are various packages you can flash for additional functionality. Most of them are proprietary. All addons persist during LineageOS updates, so you do not need to flash them again after updating.
    *Houdini/Widevine: I do not provide pre-built ZIPs for those two addons. (See this post for more information.)
    They can be built easily on any Linux distribution using android_vendor_google_chromeos-x86. Takes just a few minutes (depending on your download speed). No development experience or Android source code required.

    If you are unable to build it, someone else may share a build with you. In that case, you can verify its integrity using the SHA-1 checksums available in the release notes.
