Here is one from the OTA Updater:

EDIT: It is on purpose that it identifies itself as LineageOS. If I could I would post it as Lineage here; but 2 different Lineages would confuse users; so I called it "Mint-OS" (like my old Mint Kernel)

This ROM works great! This is the first custom ROM I put on the Moto G5 and it is already way better (and more up to date) than stock Android 8. Have been using it for a couple of hours and I must say it is very stable and smooth.
Only thing I noticed is that the mobile network setting is set to GSM/WCDMA by default. I was not getting LTE but switching the setting to GSM/WCDMA/LTE worked as expected. I'm not sure if this is intended or not, but LTE works as it should after changing the setting.

Okay, that bug is a strange one. I never had issues with that and was not able to reproduce... Well, as long as it works after changing the setting - fine

EDIT: Thanks for the kind words about this ROM :) Don't forget that is not all my work but I just put everything great together and added a few things - thanks to every person who made this ROM possible

You can test it if you turn on the airplane mode and wait until all radio interfaces are disabled. Then turn on WiFi manually.
Are you able to do normal SIM-based phone calls?

Thanks for testing :)
No. It shows "Disable airplane mode or connect to a WiFi network." It could be my hosts file for adblocking but probably it's just broken.

EDIT: I just informed CodeZero about this issue

This looks very promising, thanks. I am installing now to test it.
Regarding "Gapps"... is there a workaround for apps "need" the Playstore to function? (An example is MercadoPago, that sadly is needed now a days)
Edit: If it helps anyone; when an APP gives you a warning regarding the missing PlayStore, just tap "Back" and it will ignore the warning and enter the app.

I've been using this for a bit. So far, so good.
One question… what's the deal with updates? Usually there will be one ~30MB and another ~600+MB. I tried the smaller update and it would fail outright. The text screen of the installer would flash for a second (too quick to read) and just switch to the TWRP main screen. The bigger update (full ROM, I assume) works OK.
On the topic of updates, there is no changelog, I guess because the G5 doesn't exist as a LineageOS device. Will this be fixed? Having daily builds aren't much use to me if I can't see what's new - honestly I'm only interested in major bug fixes and security updates.

Cheers

Hello :D
Sorry for the late reply - I didn't look into XDA for some time :angel:
Okay, point for point:
- The small updates were a test for incremental updates. They did not work as you noticed and are disabled now.
- You're right, the big update is the full ROM
- About Changelog: For Mint- and Device-specific and important changes I have https://t.me/s/MintOS_News and the Lineage Changelog doesn't exist but it just is what got merged into Lineage since the last build. When a new security patch arises I will normally (when I notice it ;)) announce it in the Telegram Channel linked above.

    congrats to all devs and thank you for all the hard work, time and effort you guys have put in!
    Just keep in mind it doesn't have the Mint tweaks ;)
