Stellar OS is an optimized LineageOS-based Android aftermarket firmware with extra features, developed by people all over the world.
Quoting the LineageOS description:
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.
We offer vanilla and gapps variants. If you install a vanilla variant, the only supported Gapps package is MindTheGapps (gapps builds are not available for a few devices due to space issues).

Download & instructions:
Build 23th September 2021
• 1.1 source update (September SP + new features)
• Fixed fast charging display

Vanilla | Gapps

Old releases:
Build 12th August 2021
  • Initial release
  • If you are coming from an older build (beta testers), clean flash is required
Vanilla | Gapps

IMPORTANT: If you are coming from another ROM, you need to format data (there where you type yes in twrp).
IMPORTANT: OTA updates require enabling recovery update in Setup Wizard (or, if you already set your device up developer options) - they do not support TWRP.

Thanks for letting us know- I'll have to try this! Will Mint 2.1 Seed vault backups be compatible with this new ROM?

In instaled it, its working perfectly. No issues at all until now. Thank you so much for keeping my moto g5 alive :)

I have one minor issue. It seems TWRP has been replaced by lineageOS recovery. I would like to keep it that way in orer to receive updates. I would like to flash and install magisk though in order to hide root so I can work with MS Oulook and such. I do not see the option in lineageOS recovery. Can I boot into TWRP recovery from adb/fastboot, and then fash it? or are there other options?

It got replaced because you enabled the checkbox in setup wizard. Disable it in developer settings and install TWRP as normally.

I missed that one. Thanks for the quick reply.

Issue solved. Sadly the microsoft company portal is aware of my device being rooted, this was also the case in android 10, but Ill work around it.

Have you hidden magisk with a random package name in its settings?

Does your device pass ctsprofile?
If not install magisk hide props module and terminal emulator. Once installed type props in terminal emulator and change the fingerprint to a pixel 4 android 11

Also hide the app that detects root with magisk hide

Yeah, I did all that, I think
- Hidden Magisk, named it Settings
- It passes SafetyNet, and ctsProfile (evalType Basic)
- I did install hide props, ran the emulator and changed the fingerprint. That was new to me.

I have hidden everything of outlook, company portal, etc, but it still I get the error doing my device check in the business portal. As I said, I can work around it. I really appreciate you helping me out but don't bother if you're too busy ;-)

Hi nift4,

awesome work!
My Moto G5 works fine - I've noticed a very long boot time (5 minutes), though.
I did a cleanup with formatting system, data and vendor, before I flashed this image. Maybe to much?

regards, Andy

This is due to a slow driver, an issue that is known and present in all Android 11 builds for Moto G5, even official Lineage OS.
Idk if kernel 4.9 will get usuable any time soon, but that will hopefully resolve that issue.

Hide props is not needed on this rom, for general information. I built it into the source.

Formatting system and data is an good idea actually. It prevents leftovers (on system, some things like Gapps packages store restore scripts). Formatting vendor is useless. No harm done, just time wasted.

Thanks for your replies and explanation!

It's amazing to see Android 11 on such an "old" device!

Flashed this to replace Mint 2.1 no problems. Even the Seedvault backup worked. Battery seems to last longer too. One strange thing I'm experiencing since I flashed Stellar is that whenever I reboot my phone I get 5 text messages within a couple of minutes from O2 (my mobile network operator) saying my number doesn't support Visual Voicemail. I've never used Visual Voicemail it in the past, wonder why I'm getting these messages?
Thanks

Hi,

Thank you for your work !
My questions may be slightly off-topic... and from a newbie but I am wondering why SafetyNet is OK on this ROM (checked with an application, without Magisk installed) BUT some applications still refuse to work or complain :
- WhatsApp just warns my device is not supported
- HID Approve (an MFA auth. app) refuses to run
- My banking app refuses to enable basic features at launch

What kind of checks have been implemented within these applications (are they well-known ?) and is there a way to workaround these issues ?

Otherwise, I could relock my bootloader and reinstall Oreo Stock but I tried many times a few months ago and never managed to do it without losing my IMEIs (I have not done EFS backups before installing MintOS...). Any suggestion to make this work without buying another phone ?

Thank you !

    Is your device rooted at all?

    If so the apps can detect you are rooted and they can detect that magisk is installed

    So in magisk settings enable magisk hide
    Also in magisk settings hide magisk with a random package name and call it something totally random (this will now be the name of the app)
    Open the app back up and go to magisk hide and tick any app that detects root eg banking app

    Force close any apps that were open and restart them

    If that doesn't work you can try RevengeOS as I don't implement safetynet patches on that rom and then read the faqs about passing safetynet then do the above

    If you are not rooted it maybe because the app can detect secure boot is not enforced. Flash magisk to patch boot.img and then do above to hide root

    hey, I installed Stellar OS on my Moto G5 today, and everything seems perfect !

    as @AndyFx12, I'm looking forward kernel update if it can reduce booting time.

    now I encountered a real issue when I ran out of battery : when I plug in my USB cable, there's 2 scenarios :
    • when the phone is turned off, it takes 2 minutes before actually charging
    • when it's on, there's the "plugged in" animation, but the phone is not charging (the battery manager settings say "not charging"), still the eco battery settings are turned off because it's plugged ...
    plus the battery is like super hot when it's charging ...

    any suggests ?

    EDIT : okay nevermind, I just activated "Smart charging" and "Smart cutoff" without understanding what it does ...

    Is there a way to configure Lineage Recovery see the phone on Windows to transfer files like with TWRP?

    And also, is there a way to use the fingerprint sensor to turn off the screen and lock it?
    nope, except about the fingerprint, you maybe have luck with this old app I made.
