I did not noticed beware of broken Magisk module and updated to 2.3. Now I do not have root. How to fix that?

Magisk can only survive if you use a recovery that can decrypt data, which is not possible with lineage and derivate-based recoveries (and even with twrp, often does not work on samsung devices). You mus t reflash magisk after each update, or switch to Lygisk which stores Magisk files in an unencrypted part of /data.

I want to reflash Magisk, but I lost TWRP after upgrade too. I have now some basic recovery tool. What is wrong?

Maybe you ticked "Update recovery" in the Updater ? An ota should not change the recovery if this is not selected... I think you'll have to reflash twrp then, if you want to install Magisk.
Ok, it works now. Update recovery in updater is off by default? It was on on my device and I don't remember to switch that on.

Hello,
I'm interested in this ROM (coming from lineageOS 18.1) and wanted to know more about it.
First, I saw the alert about play store magisk module, what is the goal of this module ? what impact if not working?
Are there some apps not working with microG ? such as waze/gMaps ? or notifications not working, for signal/telegram/whatsapp ?
Is there a way to use android Auto with it ?
Can we use apps with google play subscription, and apps with in-app purchase ?

Thanks in advance !

Answering to myself :)

Everything works like a charm (and thanks for this !)
Except android Auto.

Has anyone managed to use android auto connected to their car?
I tried this from this thread but not working for me...


EDIT : don't know why but now it's working thanks to the thread linked !

After 2.4 update (I'm now on 2.5 ver) I noticed massive battery drain in stand by (screen off). Curve of battery drain is linear down, no matter if screen is on or off. I even change new battery, but it wont help. Anyone has similar issue?

Thanks for this. Fortunately it will helps a bit with battery consumption.

I don't think linear curve for batter drain (no matter if screen is on or off) is normal.

After update to 2.6 I cannot open device. After I set my pattern to unlock, screen goes off and lock-screen shows again. Menu works fine, I just cannot open launcher (KISS launcher). What could be wrong?

EDIT: Deleting /data/system/locksettings.db in TWRP allowed me to pass locksreen, however when I try to re-set new gesture/PIN/pass for login, android settings crash. So... Everything works except locksreen.

EDIT2: Now I have bootloop after Magisk upgrade. OMG.

    Introduction

    iodéOS is a privacy-focused operating system powered by LineageOS and based on the Android mobile platform. iodéOS aims at protecting the user's privacy with a built-in adblocker and by freeing the smartphone from snitches.

    The objectives in the conception of this ROM are threefold:

    1. To keep the stability and security level of LineageOS, by minimizing the modifications made to the system. Apart the system modifications required by the adblocker, we mainly only added a few useful options commonly found in other custom ROMs, made some cosmetic changes, modified a few default settings to prevent data leaks to Google servers.
    2. To ease a quick adoption of this ROM by new users. We especially target users that are concerned by the protection of their privacy, but are not reluctant to still use inquisitive apps like Google ones. We thus included MicroG as well as a coherent set of default apps, and simplified the initial setup of the system. Particularly, an initialization of MicroG has been made with GCM notifications allowed by default, a privacy-friendly network location provider (DéjàVu) pre-selected, as well as Nominatim Geocoder.
    3. To provide a new and powerful way of blocking ads, malwares, data leaks of all kinds to many intrusive servers. We are developing an analyzer, tightly integrated into the system, that captures all DNS requests and network traffic, as well as a user interface (the iodé app). Compared to some other well-known adblockers, this has the advantages of:
      • Avoiding to lock the VPN for that use. You can even use another adblocker that uses VPN technology alongside our blocker.
      • Being independent of the kind of DNS server used by the system or set by an independent app: classical DNS on UDP port 53 or any other one, DNS over TLS (DoT), DNS over HTTPS (DoH), ..., as we capture the DNS requests before they are transmitted to the system function that emits the DNS request. What we do not support, is DoH when it is natively built into applications, i.e. when an app communicates directly with a DoH server, without asking name resolution to the system. It would require to decrypt HTTPS packets between such an app and the DoH server, which may create a big security hole.
      • Precisely mapping DNS requests and network packets to the Android apps that emitted (or received) them.
      • Deciding which apps have a filtered network usage (by default, all apps), and which ones can communicate with blacklisted servers.
      Since its first versions, we added many features to the iodé blocker: several levels of protection, fine-grained control over the hosts that should be blocked or authorized, displaying statistics on a map to see the quantity of data exchanged to which countries, clearing statistics... We are actively developing the blocker, and new functionalities will be regularly added.

    Features

    Changes in LineageOS to prevent data leaks:

    • Default DNS server: Google's DNS replaced by Quad9's 'unblocked' servers in all parts of the system.
    • A-GPS: patches to avoid leaking personnal information like IMSI to supl server.
    • Captive portal login: connectivitycheck.gstatic.com replaced by captiveportal.kuketz.de for connectivity check.
    • Dialer: Google default option replaced by OpenStreetMap for phone number lookup.

    Pre-installed apps:

    We included many useful default apps, but our choice cannot suit everyone; so we added the possibility to remove them. It can be done at the end of the phone setup, or at any time by going to Parameters -> Apps & Notifications -> Preinstalled apps.

    • MicroG core apps: GmsCore, GsfProxy, FakeStore.
    • NLP backends for MicroG : DejaVuNLPBackend (default), MozillaNLPBackend, AppleNLPBackend, RadioCellsNLPBackend, Nominatim Geocoder.
    • App stores : FDroid (with F-Droid Privileged Extension) and Aurora Store.
    • Browser: our own fork of Firefox (with Qwant as default search engine, many other ones added, telemetry disabled, parts of telemetry code removed) instead of Lineage’s default browser Jelly.
    • SMS: QKSMS instead of Lineage's default SMS app.
    • Email: p≡p (Pretty Easy Privacy).
    • Camera: our own fork of Open Camera, with a few tweaks.
    • Maps/navigation: Magic Earth GPS & Navigation (the only one free but not open source).
    • Keyboard: OpenBoard instead of AOSP keyboard.
    • PDF: Pdf Viewer Plus.
    • Personnal notes: Carnet.
    • {Ad/Malware/Data leak}-blocker: iodé.
    • News: to keep users informed about our developments, as well as a FAQ.
    • Meteo: Geometric Weather.

    Pre-included FDroid repository:

    The apps that we tweak or develop (microG services, the browser based on Firefox, the News app, Open Camera ...) are available through a repository that we included in FDroid (check the "Apps for iodéOS" category). For this purpose and to avoid name conflicts of some apps, we also had to make a few changes in FDroid.

    Useful options from other custom ROMs:
    • Smart charging (disables charging when a given level is reached, to protect battery health).
    • Fingerprint vibration toggle.
    • Swipe down to clear all in recent apps (Android 10 only).
