LineageOS 18.1

lineage-18.1-20210910-UNOFFICIAL-flo.zip
lineage-18.1-20210910-UNOFFICIAL-deb.zip



Known issues:

- Encryption has not been tested .. pls test on your own risk.
- We are still Permissive (SELinux)
- And maybe more issues .. ?

Installation:
1.) Do factory reset in TWRP - keep internal storage this way.
2.) Format /system partition in TWRP
3.) Install ROM
4.) Install Gapps (optional)
5.) Install Magisk 21.x (optional)
6.) Reboot into system and start to setup your device.

Android 11 Partition sizes: Flo and Deb device -> 1100 MB -> both devices needs reparition !
Pls check below for more details.

Gapps:
@ipdev made some opengapps test packages.
https://www.mediafire.com/folder/qxo023zef5chm/unofficial
Or use BITGapps or other packags for ARM.

MicroG:
The ROM have been patched to support microG !

Magisk:
Tested with Magisk 21.2
If Safety.net check does not work just disable and re-enable "Magisk Hide" in Magisk settings menu.

System repartitioning / Opengapps: Error 70
The current system partition is (getting) full !
You need to do repartition your system partition .. either via TWRP package or manually via shell.
It's an one time task.

But the filesystem of the system.img inside the ROM will keep always the same size .. approx. 880mb.
The filesystem does not know the "real" size of the actual partition.
In general .. If you install an image into a partition the filesystem will have the size of the image (in our case 880mb).
The free space we got thru repartitioning needs to be allocated again.

For this reason we need to enlarge/resize the filesystem after each ROM update and/or clean install.
Only the filesystem .. the partition itself will stay untouched.
The automatic enlarge/resize of the filesystem is part of the ROM installer.

There are repartition solutions from @ipdev @Clamor @k23m .. and maybe more.

Made new sysrepart.zip based on the original from @k23m
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=76278047&postcount=19
The original code is changing to 1140MB (system) and 260MB (cache).
These days /cache is not used anymore .. a few MB only.
For this reason I have changed the values to 1280 (system) and 120MB (cache) now.

Thanks will download when I get home
Cool .. go for it :)

It seems there are some download issues using mobile devices.
Google Mobile version wants to redirected to some ...mobile... link, which is not working.
At least for me.
Also the import into Google Drive App seems not to work.

If you choose "request desktop version" in Chrome mobile settings it should work.

On normal desktop browsers there are no problems.

This issue occurs since a few days .. for "all" my Google Drive projects :(

Hi I downloaded in Windows 10 and all working atm. More after I test.

ROM seems fully functional. Working well with data and dalvik formatted f2fs.
Your recovery is also functioning well, with the the exception that it takes over a minute to load. Not a problem for me though.

After installation, does not go into the recovery (3.0.2)
On version 3.0.3-3, such a problem will not exist?
Which sections have the format f2fs ?, and whether it is possible to add a night mode? :)

/system/bin/install-recovery.sh

You loose recovery .. this is normal ... if not rooted ..(SuperSU.zip)
The easiest solution is to install SuperSU.zip via TWRP.

Maybe I can remove it for next build .. not sure.

F2FS .. via TWRP
Wipe - Repair/Change file-system ...

Jus install the ROM and test and play yourself :)

Cheers

Does micro gapps work with this ROM, or only nano?

Reason I ask is that some things (Face Unlock) don't come with nano and there is no easy way to add that back in that I've found.

Enough space is available for micro. I managed to install it after a few reboots (no clue how). However, having converted data to f2fs, I now cannot write to data from within the ROM (play store crashes on install of any app, webview cannot start a download and camera cannot save photos). Latest rom from yesterday, haven't installed any fstab patches (thought this rom being the next release would not need any patches, am I correct?). Any suggestions?

Keep in mind that all Open GApps installs can be customized so if you want FaceLock you would chose the lowest package with it and them use the config file to remove the rest of the differences.

Also Face Unlock DOES come with Nano BTW, only package without it is Pico.

(Disclaimer: I'm a former Open GApps team member.)

Did you fix your problems ?

The fstab has been changed ... you can verify yourself.

Open terminal app ..
Code:
su -
cat fstab.flo

To see the current partitons and there used/mounted filesystems ..
Code:
mount

Pls have a look here ..

F2FS seems to work fine on data - I still use it on cache only.

If you face strange issues, pls start with a fresh TWRP factory reset first.

Cheers

I have the rom flashed and everything looks good with cache and data converted to F2FS. However I am experiencing an odd issue. When i first set up the tablet I sign in with my gmail account and everything looks good. I do a clean setup so nothing restores and download the official gmail from the play store. Once it installs and opens it does not seem to notice that my google account is configured. It asks me to add a mail account and if i put the same account in it says the account already exists. I've factory reset this 3 times trying something different each time thinking maybe I did something dumb. Flashed many roms before and never seen this, any ideas?

You can try to resize file system of system partition inside TWRP to get full partition size.
Or use the Update.zip_resizefs_flo.zip inside the download folder.
Works for deb too.

Cheers

dumb question but what does the partition resize change it to? I was looking to find a stock partitioning sizes vs this script chart or explanation.
