New LineageOS 18.1 (A11) build available for H870 - H870DS - H872 - US997

Build date

20/08/2021

Hi Bernardo, I just dirty-flashed this update and am wondering about the security patch level.

Under Settings > About phone > Android version, it says
- Android security update: July 1, 2018
- Vendor security patch level: February 1, 2019

Shouldn't one of them say August 1, 2021? Or am I looking in the wrong place?

Thanks!

I've no idea where that comes from. Maybe you're using a module or somehow modified your build.prop.

No, I performed a standard dirty flash per your instructions (including Magisk). I believe the previous version from early July did show the correct July 1, 2021, Android security patch level.

Maybe it'll go away with your next update. I'll keep an eye on it.

Thanks!

dear gents,
maybe one of you has a clue for me, I can't find any solution:
Since the day I changed from another, older rom to lineage 18, I got issues with the bluetooth connection, but only in the car.
Playing music over bluetooth on a small speaker works for hours, but when I connect the mobile to the car for hands-free calls etc, the connection is getting lost. Always about 2 minutes after the screen times out. When I force the screen on, the connection stays stable.
Also it doesn't connect automatically to the car anymore.

I checked power saving options, disabled bluetooth from power saving menu, cleared bluetooth cache, deleted the phone and the car vice versa, ...dunno what else to do.

My guess is that since no data is transferred, since the connection ison standby, waiting for phone calls, the connection is getting cut from some powersaving option or something like that. But I can't find anything.
Worked flawlessly with android 10 and an other rom before.

Any ideas or a hint maybe, someone?
I can confirm that this issue happens also on other android 11 roms. No idea if those I tried were lineage-based or not, though.
I' ll try with changing some bluetooth protocols and /or enabling gabeldorsche stack, maybe it'll help...

BT works fine here in every possible situation I tested it.
Try to get a log and join the TG group to share it and we'll see if we can find the reason.

Hi, two quick questions.
#1: How's the batterylife compared to latest stock rom?
and #2: Is Linage pre-rooted / will safety-net pass out of the box? (Don't need root on my phone, but I use some apps that have safety-net checks.)

It depends on which stock rom, some variants got stock Oreo while h870 got Pie update. Anyway, battery life is good enough.

Lineage is not pre rooted and will pass SafetyNet.

You can join the Telegram group to get more information. Link is in the first post of this thread.

@bernardobas FYI, this issue went away without me making any changes. It's showing the Android security update as August 5, 2021. Thanks again!

What's required for being officially built by LineageOS servers? How come this H870 LOS18.1 ROM isn't? It would be nice with an automatic updater.

It's required that we comply with some standards that we don't, like fixing our tree for camera, encryption and so on. And also to adapt that tree/kernel to the official LG msm8996 common sources that are being used for official G5 Lineage.

That's a hard, time consuming task that we cannnot tackle right now.

Fair enough, thanks for the answer!

I installed version 18.1 almost a week ago on my H870 and it was a really tiresome process because my phone would not read my sdxc.
I did a clean flash. Wiped everything.
I tried to repair card on Windows but even after all having been fixed my phone would not read it and it suggested a full format. I tried to return to a previous backup of Android 10 (Havoc) but TWRP failed to restore it. I clean flashed Havoc A10 and it would read the sd card just fine.
I reinstalled 18.1 (after full wipe) and it would still not read the card. I copied all data (100 gb) to my pc and then i formatted the card with my phone. After that it recognized my card. I tried to transfer the data from my pc to my phone but it wouldn't move more than 2 gb (give or take). i took the card out and placed to my pc with an adapter and transferred the data (finally). After that my phone would read all the content of my card.

Sorry for the long version. Just wanted to help anyone with the same problem. I guess there is some difference in sd card format from previous version.

I use no GAPPS. I use microg. I works perfectly if apps are installed after microg. if not they rarely connect to cloud etc.

Please fix screen time out. It always returns to 1 min no matter what you select.

IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY. THANK YOU

    Hi, thanks for your report.
    Are you sure screen timeout doesn't work?
    Just tested it with 15 sec, 30 sec and 1 minute. All of them worked fine.
    1
    Not for me at least. I select 15 seconds, I return to home page and it simply doesn't work. It resets to 1 min. Sometimes it keeps my selection until screen is locked but it resets to 1 min afterwards.
    Thank you for your time.
    Sorry for that. I found that it was my Keepscreenon app that was messing everything up. i uninstalled it and sleep timer works fine.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    thank you so much for your work, highly appreciated! It took me a while to figure out how to flash TWRP as well as getting through the LG recovery "paywall" but after all it's running smooth as silk.
    What made me curious is your release notes hint calling miracast: I cannot figure out how to connect lineageos ever since 17.x releases to connect to my displays disregarding any kind of hardware (LG G6 of course, Nexus 7 Wifi, Lenovo Yoga Pad). Stock Android Pie still works. Is this somehow a general issue or did you do any changes that makes it work but not with my very TV?

    Thanks,
    siyman
    It works for me, check the attached vídeo to see how to enable it.

    does H870DS unlock bootloader available?

    How is It possible to install this ROM on H870DS? Is It possible to unlock its bootloader now?

    Some users got the bin file for unlocking directly from LG. You should join this TG group to get the exact procedure: https://t.me/LGG6BootloaderExploit
