    Thanks for a great build!
    The only thing I'm struggling with is the sd card. It is readable by Sky Hawk recovery, however Lineage just keeps rebooting with inserted sd card. So far formatting it in different file system or leaving it blank didn't change anything. Tested with a 64GB and a 256GB SanDisk card. Both cards don't seem corrupted.
    When I get around to I'll try to find some logs.

    I'd like to get involved and I'm only half stupid. The telegram channels are the best way?

    Sure, send your logs to the TG channel. Strange tho... My sd card is working fine here but we can check what's going on.

    Hello everyone,
    I tested the last build, and so far everything is working great but the safety net doesn't pass.
    (Clean flash from orangeFox + Nikk Gapp core + Magisk)

    No issue with my SD card.

    The only real trouble I have is that Disney + won't install, neither from apk pure nor from the play store.

    Thank you for the ROM :)
    Have a great day!

    You need to enable magisk hide option and hide manager. You'll find both in manager conf.

    Great release of 18.1 (Android 11). Real smooth and responsive so far. Magisk also just updated to 22.0.

    Barclays banking app (version 2.34.7) now throws an error (T0009) re the fingerprint reader. Had been working in Build 20210112. Not observed a similar issue in other apps making use of the fingerprint. All other functionality in the banking app otherwise seems to be OK and it fully passes their internal security.

    Tried reinstall and renew fingerprint. Directly messaged the bank. Will update with any developments.

    EDIT: On reinstall of Hypercam and trCamera I reproduced this error with Hypercam. Tried refresh of txt file.

    I've just updated this post about GCam. The new one is working fine here and may be the best choice for Android 11.

    CC @4138

    EDIT: I added a new GCam option (BSG)

    Hello,

    I'm testing the new version and it's really good :) The ROM is super smooth (resolution down to 1080p). I finally think I can keep this phone one more year :D

    For the Gcam,
    BSG GCam 8.1
    - Wide OK
    - MainOK
    - Front OK
    Wichaya's GCam 7.3
    - Wide OK
    - MainOK
    - Front KO - > BSG seams better for Android 11

    Trash_remover is a real plus, thank you for sharing this with us!
    What I have not tested:
    - Bluetooth + Waze (was buggy on my older ROM Havos 3.9)

    I have a question related to Proshot camera app, since the dirty flash (Lineage 18 -> 18.1), I cannont switch anymore to wide / front camera on this specific app.
    Have you encountered this issue already?

    I have tried to clear cache, uninstall, reinstall without success.

    Thanks for the work :D

    Yeah, BSG seems better for A11. Just make sure to fix low volume in videos: go to BSG GCam config > Developer Settings and enable camcorder.stereo.

    Waze is buggy itself... Anyway, I guess Google will most likely shut it down once they finish merging everything into Maps. So don't get too attached to it.

    I really don't know Proshot camera app, and as it's a paid app I can't test it. Try to see if you can find a setting where you can define each cam number.

    Android Auto seems to work on the latest internal test build. Please, test again after the next release and let me know what happens.

      There hasn't been significant changes that could be overheating or draining the battey.

      Could be due to an app you installed lately.
      You may be right, probably it's caused by Microsoft Edge as it causes processor to run at 100% even when running in background. Closing the app manually solves this problem, but I have to test it for some time to be sure.

      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.

      Code:
      #include <std_disclaimer.h>
      /*
      * Your warranty is now void.
      *
      * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
      * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
      * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
      * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
      * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
      *
      */

      What's working?
      WiFi
      RIL
      Mobile data
      GPS
      Camera
      Flashlight
      Camcorder
      Bluetooth
      Fingerprint reader
      NFC
      Flashlight
      Sound
      Vibration
      microG support

      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

      Downloads
      LineageOS for all LG G6 variants

      Debloated builds

      The order for flashing is: ROM + Gapps & Trash Remover + Gapps + Magisk.
