Hi

I know this isnt the right place to post but I'd like to install this ROM but I really messed up. I was running LOS 14.1 and I wiped all data and cant flash a ROM because ADB is unauthorized. I cant flash a ROM.

So right now all I've got is TWRP and this:

C:\bin\pollux_windy>adb devices
List of devices attached
CB5A1R2CQW unauthorized

Do I need to go to stock? On that note I cant find a good link for the flashtool for the life of me.

I figured with some OS on it I could enable debugging...

I tried doing something with the keys but I dont have a /data/misc/adb folder when using the explorer in TWRP using this guide:


Any help direction or the best forum to post this is greatly appreciated.

Is anyone seeing display lag issue when setting / selecting wallpaper on the home screen? (Using latest build on pollux_windy, completely wiped and flashed)

Hello @Chatbox,

Yes, I also noticed lags, when changing wallpapers (via holding your finger on Home Screen and selecting Wallpapers).

I did my first ever Lineage OS install recently. I used lineage-16.0-20210608-UNOFFICIAL-pollux_windy.zip build and followed all the instructions from https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...-or-wifi-any-version-to-android-9-pie.3392831 for Sony Xperia Tablet Z Wi-Fi.

Everything works fine, including the camera and 5GHz Wi-Fi network. The only thing that bothered me, were lags while setting / selecting / scrolling default wallpapers. I noticed they were not scaling (or fitting) nicely, too. The workaround, was to create my own squared wallpapers (1920x1920), so that they match the native width of the display while in horizontal or vertical position.

Now I have a few custom wallpapers in the Gallery. They fit much better than the stock ones. You can set them without lags, if you do it via the Settings -> Display -> Advanced -> Wallpaper -> Gallery -> Select item -> SET WALLPEPER. It's a lot of tapping, but going directly to Gallery bypasses displaying stock wallpapers, hence there are no lags.

UPDATE: The fastest way is to select Gallery from your Home Screen -> Choose a picture and tap on options (...) -> Set picture as -> SET WALLPAPER. It sets both Home & lock screen backgrounds at once.

If you find any better solution, please let me know. I attach a couple of my squared wallpapers, if you want to test them out. Cheers!
