LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), 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

 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.

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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). 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 our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

How is it working for you now?
Worked Ok for me for couple of days but now hangs very often (mostly on using browser, gmail...)
Getting System UI isn't responding and similar.
Performed clean flash and using same apps as on LOS 15

Everything still works fine and fast. But: I don't use the Lineage implemented browser (since Lineage 15). I use Google Chrome Browser (with data reduction use) and this one doesn't hang itself up !!! I don't use any E-Mail on my phone cause I used it as a reserve phone. Which app do you use for Gmail ? Google app or Lineage app ? What is the Problem with the E-Mail ? Maybe I Can test. All other apps I use are working flued 100 %. I use mostly Youtube and TomTom Car Navigation and until now no hangups. (P.S. I have sent you PN)

Thanks for reply. I am not using built in browser but Firefox, tested with Dolphin also but it is even worse (Dolphin itself had freezing issue before, not sure i fthey resolved that.)
Mail app is Gmail, no issues on 15 with it.
Facebook using Lite and no issues there.

Using SD Maid Pro to clean system, maybe that caused issues. Will see how it behaves in the next days.

You Can test opera lite or Google browser. maybe it's better. And use the Lineage Mail app I think this is the best. I have Gapps pico. There is no Google Mail App included. I think in Android 9 it is not necessary to use any cleaning apps.

Still same with Opera Mini and built in e-Mail client.
I am also using Pico gapps

Tried also Low RAM enabler but don't see any difference. Like it is not supported by LOS.

Will wait for new build and reflash

Hi,I flash on g620s but slow in game .Specially in clash of clans please help me

I don't think that playing games on this Smartphone is very useful. First You should try the original ROM first how it behaves. Don't expect better Performance.

---------- Post added at 10:34 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:27 AM ----------

Some statisctics in usage for G620S-L01 with this ROM: after display usage of 1 h 13 min. the battery Shows 47 %. Standby time 35 hours until now. Connections: Wifi on and 4G Network booked in all the time.

This is really strange, as I do not have any freezes until now, only when I use the implemented lineage browser I have this Problems. All other Apps are working perfect, also my favorite TomTom Navigaton with all downloaded Navigation maps of Europe on SD-Card.

The implemented browser works fine,faster than Chrome (may be Chrome need too much resources as this phone is outdated).both in Los 14 and 15,Chrome always crash when downloading .

    Flashed now Mokee ROM. and Iike it !!! Now I try to implement the weather service inside. It Needs an API Code which currently is not valid. Mokee seems better now because up-to-date.

    So the Mokee ROM seems the only ROM which received updates now ? Maybe that's the reason it's better.

    I agree 100% with the above. Thank you very much for the great support. I never thought I could keep this phone that long.
    Maybe @dianlujitao can tell us if he has plans to continue LineageOS support for this smartphone, or what would be the best option now.
    In any case, I reiterate my thanks for these years of support.
