Hmmm am I doing something wrong? I did the following:

1. Wipe everything
2. sysrepart
3. Wipe everything
4. Install LineageOS
5. Reboot to system

But just sits on the lineage booting logo, has been on it for an hour now.

I also tried repeating this with @ipdev 's version of the repart, same thing.

I'm using the LTE version, so trying to flash the deb package

I also tried to do this with and without the pico version of the gapps. Same thing sadly. Not sure what else I can do.

TWRP for deb unfortunately was not updated to 3.5.0_9-0 :(

TWRP 3.4.0-0 defaults to install the TWRP app.

Make sure NOT to install the TWRP app.
You can toggle the TWRP app install in TWRP settings so it will not ask each time you reboot from TWRP.

Note:
Installing the TWRP app on quite a few devices caused issues.
  • Infinite boot.
  • Bootloop.
  • Bootloop and then recovery.
    • Rescue Party

Try a clean install again.
Since you (re)partitioned you can skip that step.
Boot into TWRP and do the format and wipe steps then reboot into recovery (TWRP).
Install the rom and reboot to system.
Do not install the TWRP app..

Hopefully it is just the TWRP app getting installed.
If not, logs are needed to see what is going on..

Cheers. :cowboy:

Awesome, that was exactly it and got it all running now. Thank you!

I get a lot of connection issues on wifi but it's not the worst, I use this as a test device these days mainly.

The rom works great! The developers are awesome!
Problems I encountered with my 16GB flo:
1. /system could not be mounted after flashing the partition resize zip. I tried to format it to ext3 and back to ext4. Then the partition seemed to be back with correct space.
2. After installing LineageOS, only ~280MB free space is remaining in system partition. I had to download the pico gapps. Others could not be installed due to insufficient storage space.

EDIT:
Doh.

You need to boot into recovery and factory reset after manually flashing the partitions.
Then reboot to system.
Forgot, old version of Android.
It has been awhile since I did that..



@k23m
Can you take a look? :)

Cheers all. :cowboy:
@ipdev
Thank you again for your help with this, unfortunately no luck yet in getting the system out of a boot loop and back to stock.

@k23m
Would you happen to have any thoughts or suggestions?

I updated my REPIT port and posted a link a few posts back.

This will give you a 1.4G (1477M) system.
A little more system space for GApps and custom configuration. ;)

Cheers. :cowboy:

Yes, please go to RESTOCK and get k23m-persist-fix2.zip
Install it manually in TWRP. I will add it to the next version of Restock's scripts.

Incredible! Worked on the first try and happy to report I am back to stock with no bootloop. Thank you for this, I don't even know how many hours I spent in this thing.

I couldn't make it work. I spent the whole day trying to make this repartition do its thing and every attempt fail. I followed your steps, I try different combinations, I even went back to stock android 4.3 in case the problem was that I have a previous partition but anything work. I had to use the partition script on page 1 and go for pico gapps as it doesn't accept anything else.
Any thoughts on why it didn't work?
