Thanks a lot @reujea0
i had quite some problems with installing the rom but i think there were on my side. managed it finally with flashing stock rom from xiaomi with miflash and then flashing lineage afterwards and it worked.

its running stable and smooth. coming from lineage with android 8.1 (yea i know...) i notice differences and miss some things:
-battery consumption is higher. just a thing to accept or is there a possibility to tweak with different kernal etc?

-i miss wakeup display when receiving a notification? is there no implemented solution for it? android 8 had it? i bypassed it with a 3rd party app...

-my notification LED is not working properly. battery notification works fine but with messengers at the beginning i had no led and now its turned on all the time instead of blinking. also with email i get no led notification (k9 mail).
i saw there is lokal settings and app specific settings. but the only effect i get is no led or turned on led but no blinking?

-bluetooth connection is laggy, when watching a video or listening to musik with sound pairing over bluetooth i have leggs and moments where it seems like my internet connection is leggy or the mobile is out of reach for signal but its only 1m to the receiver and the internet connection is good.



thanks for your time!
Will look into it, thanks for the feedback.

Also for any people wanting a microG version, here is a preview https://transfer.sh/nHBYS9/lineage-18.1-20220122-UNOFFICIAL-daisy.zip . Test it too and tell me if works.

FOR REGULAR USERS IF YOU DO NOT KNO WHAT MICROG IS, then this is not for you, feel free to use the normal rom, it will fit your needs better.
I downloaded both the microg and beta versions and hoping to inform you in a few days after regularly testing. Thanks for your efforts.

I want to install this ROM, but it dont start after install.
I came from Stock.
Is something to consider?
I wipe in TWRP all, then go to install and take the zip.
But it doesnt start, i only see the blue circle runinng on the blue line.

Some ideas?

EDIT: Ok, now the ROM works, after 3rd install.
Now i get Error 70 installing stock opengapps, now i test it with mini.

EDIT2: stock and mini aren't working, nano did it for me

Hi @reujea0
Thanks for this, i've been searching all through the forum for the best rom and i'm wanting to install yours.
Is the TWRP 3.5.2_9-2 still good to use ? as i see there's 3.6.0_9-dees_troy-daisy.zip available.
Also i've seen people talking about encryption but can't tell what they mean by it and do i need it ?
And lastly how do you or others find the ram management with this ? as that's the main reason i'm wanting to change as i can't have 2 apps open at all now as it just reloads wheb i swap.
Cheers
EDIT.
So i went ahead and flashed it and used the twrp above and it seemed to have gone ok and i've rebooted the system and i'm getting what looks like your loading screen with the curved bar, how long should the intial load last as it's been nearly 5 minutes.

Hey reujea0,
Thanks for your work, it is highly appreciated.

I might have a minor finding in the current release (first post). I can't get the notification light to pulse. It is either on, or it is off, no matter what I try to adjust for pulse speed and frequency (I tried all combinations).

Maybe you feel like having a check on it.

Greetings

Yes, either twrp should be fine, ad for encryption, you can enablk/disable it, it doesn't really matter. RAM maangemenet is better I believe. After 5 minutes, it should boot fine for sure, try and do a factory reset in twrp, and then only boot the rom(also install gaaps after having booted into the rom).

Thanks for the reply.
I managed to work it out I think I forgot to format data.
It's so much faster then stock so thanks for that.
One small thing I've noticed is the media volume from the speaker when playing YouTube is not as loud when on maximum, I've looked through all the settings to see if there's a restriction on it but I can't find any.
Any idea ?
Thanks again.

    Sorry, I realised that I forgot about the april update, anyhow, I'm working on the May one. Could someone test the May update out? The link is here: https://transfer.sh/5BPBgm/lineage-18.1-20220517-UNOFFICIAL-daisy.zip . It it works fine, you can keep on using it as it will get June's OTA when that comes around. Again, thanks in advance for anyone who is willing to test this build and provide feedback.

    I read about all the pages (lots of info inside) and now I would like to install Lineage 18.1 (the 19.1 not for the moment) on an outdated CrDroid. I ask if the procedure is that, or should I then do some passage (ex. switch the A / B partition on installation or OTA update)?! The stock rom needs to be updated? However, I first proceed to back up the data on the phone on the PC and then reinsert them via USB. No need to install Gapps, Magisk etc. Thanks
    This method worked for me. You cna update or not, it doesn't really make a difference. All in all backup in all cases to be sure.

    LineageOS 18.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11/R, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the changelog for a full list of changes & features.

    What's working:
    Boots
    RIL
    Fingerprint
    Wi-Fi
    Bluetooth
    Camera
    Audio
    Sensors
    Flash
    LED
    GPS

    Known issues:
    You tell me

    Installation:
    1. Download the latest build from here
    2. Download LinkBoi00's version of TWRP here
    3. Reboot to bootloader (adb reboot bootloader)
    4. Fastboot into TWRP recovery (fastboot boot twrp*.img)
    5. Do a factory reset in TWRP
    6. Flash the latest build of Lineage OS
    7. Boot into your new phone
    Optional:
    Most of us will want the basic functionality like Google Play, Maps and others, therefore I recommend downloading Gapps. You choose your own, but I recommend OpenGapps. They are among the few that can survive OTA updates.
    If you do this, I recommend booting into the new LineageOS first, then reboot to recovery, do a factory reset and then only flash the gapps. If you don't do this, the gapps won't install properly

    Ending words:
    This is a follow-up to the Lineage 17.1 ROM that I was working on. You cannot just upgrade from it to this via the system updater, you have to go through the process above. As said before, this is mostly possible due to Lyceris-chan, go support him. If you have any errors or questions feel free to ask in the thread. As for official status, might happen, probably not, I don't have enough time to make the push. As for MicroG, I plan to publish a build too, keep an eye out on xda. If I failed to credit you, make yourself known.

    Old builds:
    If for some reason you need older builds, they can be found here: https://github.com/a-huk/otaserver/releases

    Donate:
    By no means is it mandatory, I do this because I find it interesting. But it takes a lot of time and also requires me to have a powerful server, so if you could spare some change, I would be grateful.
    Donate

    MicroG:
    If you know what this is, then feel free to install it. This is the same ROM as above, but "debloated" of Google Services that are replaced with open-source alternatives. It mainly works the same, but most daily users will prefer the "normal version". This ROM has its own separate OTA engine, so it should receive updates over it too. You can download it here. The install process is very similar, just don't install Gapps at the end.

    Sorry, for leaving the rom broken and being away for so long. I had important deadlines at school and could no work on this rom. Sorry, from now on things should be much smoother, probably microg build coming in the next month.

    Depending on the results, new build with February OTA might be out today or tomorrow.
