LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

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.

This is an unofficial LineageOS 18.1 build for the international Galaxy S4 LTE-A (GT-I9506).
The korean Galaxy S4 LTE-A (SHV-E330S/K/L) is NOT tested by the developer.

Do you think a dirty flash over 17.1 might work with this Rom?
I'd like to give it a try but would not want to reinstall all apps and data.

On LOS16 before dirty flashing to LOS17 it was helpful to delete folders like below in /data/data beforehand in TWRP. But they are mostly empty now here. I'm not sure where LOS17 saves that data now.
It actually removed the global rom system settings to prevent invalid settings. This has reset the rom but not the apps.
com.android.providers.settings
com.android.settings
org.lineageos.settings.device

Thank You Kyasu for your excellent work and for keeping this phone up-to-date!
Everything works fine for me after flashing 18.1 over 17.1.

After clean upgrade, if I am downloading a file and screen turns off, my download stops (default download manager) until I turn the screen on. Few seconds later, my download resumes.
I checked battery saver, it's off. I checked restricted background, it's off. Nothing that I can think of to fix the problem.
I have not installed anything after the upgrade, so it is a clean fresh upgrade without changing any settings or installing any apps.
If anyone can think of something, please let me know how to fix it.
Thanks

You call it a "clean upgrade". What did you upgrade from?

I'm not sure what to call it anymore :)
I wiped the system, data, cache and dalvil partitions through twrp, restarted and then installed lineage. Before installing lineage 18, I was using lineage 17. I had the same issue with that one too.
Now that I am using the phone again, it is getting under my nerves because I have to constantly turn the screen on to let the downloads finish.
Do you think it has something to do with modem/bootloader file? I am using the recommended bootloader version from the first post and I don't have any other issues with lineage.
Thanks

Hello All,
How is your feeling with this new update?
I'm still on version 16 and wondering if I should upgrade or not?
Thanks
