I just installed the rom. Works great but I'm not able to access to my external SD card. I'm not able to format my SD card as internal or external storage too, I obtain an error during formatting. How to fix it? Re-flashing the rom?

    My phone makes a random buzzing noise and the flash light is not working and camera crashes.

    Check a couple of posts before yours. Some users went through the same and they were able to fix it quite easily.

    Other way to solve it would be to flash Pie KDZ (with LG software) and then upgrade to the latest KDZ to start over and flash a new recovery, ROM, and all the rest. This fix is a sure thing but takes longer, the one done by other users may be easier but may not 100% effective.

    As I mentioned before, this is due to some LG crap. I even had this issue while being on Stock Oreo (once with camera and some other time with proximity sensor).

    Good luck

    Why on 18.1 the charging rate is too slow (780mA) while on the 17.1 was quite fast (1800 mA)? I tryed also the USB fast charging option on different power adapter but nothing, the maximum remain to 780mA. How to fix?

    Hello. Are you using the latest build? Some previous builds had fast charging disabled.
    I've tested here and fast charging is working as intended, measured 2600mA average from 25% to 50% (see pic below for more details )

    Having pretty good luck with the ROM so far, thanks guys. Just one thing I'm looking for is I can't find the setting for Wi-Fi calling. I'm using mint mobile and it was always there on the stock ROM can't seem to find it on Android 11?

    Hello,

    I'm just testing the last release and it fixes the Proshot camera app on my device 🙂

    I still have my weird issue on some Instagram Reels, it's may be due to some driver update I did some time ago 😅

    I will do a feedback of the temps and battery life in a few days

    Thank you for your work!

    Glad that new camera blobs fixed your app issue.

    Just clean flashed my second G6 and I can confirm IG reels are working fine.

    Clean flashing is also recommended to get the best possible battery life. Takes a couple of days to reach the best performance tho.

    Hello,

    I just installed the lastest rom on my LG G6 H870 and everything seems to be ok. It's just when I want to install magisk from recovery, it says it cannot mount /vendor partition. Any idea where this can come from ?

      Is it normal that my device appears as not rooted for apps after flashing this rom? I have to install magisk and only then apps like Smartpack Kernel Manager works well.

      Yes, it's normal. The rom is not pre rooted.

      LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

      #include <std_disclaimer.h>
      /*

      Known issues
      - VoLTE doesn't work. LG uses a proprietary implementation of VoLTE that is not compliant with AOSP. Fixable? Probably not.
      - Encryption doesn't work

      Bug reporting
      If you want to report bugs, please always indicate device variant, Gapps package, Magisk version and Magisk modules installed.

      Prerequisites
      Your device must be unlocked and running a custom recovery. Click here if your variant is H870 or US997 and here for H872.

      Oreo or Pie bootloader required
      H870: if you are running the latest Stock Pie, there's no need to update your bootloader.
      US997 and H872: if you are running the latest Stock Oreo, there's no need to update your bootloader.
      In case you aren't running those stock versions, you'll need to update your bootloader by flashing the right one for your variant.
      Bootloaders for all LG G6 variants

      Android 11 recovery required
      After you unlocked your bootloader and flashed the suggested TWRP version, you'll need to upgrade your recovery to have A11 support. Old recoveries will not work with Android 11. OrangeFox and SkyHawk are both TWRP based and are fully compatible with this rom. You can flash them like any other ZIP (no need to unzip). Once flashed, you can use the "reboot to recovery" option to start flashing the rest of the packages.
      OrangeFox Recovery
      SkyHawk Recovery

      Instructions
      - Clean flash is mandatory
      - Backup everything
      - Unlock your device and install TWRP following the prerequisites guides above
      - Update your recovery to the latest OrangeFox or SkyHawk (otherwise flashing Android 11 based roms will fail). They are flasheable ZIPs, no need to unzip
      - Update your bootloader if needed (fingerprint reader doesn't work with old bootloaders)
      - Download the latest build and Roar Gapps (Mini Me package is mandatory, other packages will cause issues)
      - Reboot to recovery
      - Wipe system, data, cache, dalvik
      - Flash the latest build and Roar Gapps Mini Me
      - Magisk (optional)
      - Reboot and enjoy
