LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.0.0 (Oreo), 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.
- RIL (Calls, SMS, Data)
- Mp3 Playback
- Video Playback
Camera VoLTE is currently unimplemented as it breaks RIL MP3 playback (for some reason) | Use poweramp/vlc or set mono audio from accesibility settings.
- Permissive SELinux
Requires Unlocked Bootloader & a custom recovery. Also, use opengapps nano/pico: http://opengapps.org/
- Place ROM & Gapps in your virtual SD
- Reboot in Bootloader Mode
- Go to "Recovery" (Vol +/Vol -) and confirm (power)
- Wipe Data/Factory Reset
- Wipe Dalvik cache
- Install the ROM zip
- DO NOT REBOOT
- Install the Gapps zip (optional)
Unroot is even easier, just flash "su removal" package available at the previous linked page.
