Hello, I need a little bit help. Have a problem to update from lineage-18.1-20211215 to lineage-18.1-20220122 or lineage-18.1-20220316. I get an endless loop after update and new start. Wipe of Dalvik and Cache does not help. The only thing I can do – wipe Data, then the OS does start, but I get a new fresh system, all settings and apps are lost. I did not have such problems with updates lineage-18.1-2021xxxx to lineage-18.1-2021xxxx. What could you suggest? Thank you

Solid Explorer cannot access /root: it displays folders in an aberrant way. Each of these folders is empty. Mixplorer does not have this problem.
I reflashed the rom from scratch with just magisk and SE. The result is the same. Samsung S4 mini is the only device on which SE has such a bug. My tablet is Samsung tab 4 does not have this problem.

Does anyone know about this issue?

Thank you for this great ROM!

There's one annoying problem: After some time it looses mobile connection and cannot reconnect. I have to restart it to get a mobile connection again.

Switching off the SIM PIN doesn't help.

I have the same problem with LOS 17.

Does anyone use Private DNS?
I'm not able to get it work. It always states "Couldn't connect" if I configure it with dns2.dismail.de. On my other S4mini running LOS16 (also from arco! Thank you!! :)) it works properly. Can I do anything about it or is it just not supported yet?

For me it works: dns.quad9.net
Doesn't work either. Strange. I'm only using Wifi without any SIM card at the moment and the Wifi symbol has a little "x" / "No Internet" message even without Private DNS and internet working otherwise. Could that be a reason?

Never mind, it's the firewall (AFWall+). If I allow the long-named app "Dynamic System Updates, Network manager, Android System, ...etc", it works!

Also the little "x" / "No Internet" message is gone now.

It happens to me every now and then, at most a few times a months. Sometimes switch airplane on and off fixes it, sometimes I have to reboot the phone.

For my part this is how I do the update (since android 9)
I first go to the /system/product/app/webview directory and delete all the elements.

With mixplorer and the new webwiew.apk I rename it webview.zip
I open webview.zip and copy the files from the lib directory

In /system/product/app/webview I create a lib/arm folder and I paste the libs.

In the webview directory I but the webview.apk file

I restart >> ok

For information for each rom update I made a fix to make things easier for me because I have other applications that I add and delete
Hi @arco68
I just tried the TWRP method from here:

I don't get any webview in developer options. What am I missing?

I just installed April update, now my maps on external storage (SD card) in android/data folder of sygic and Magic Earth are gone, can't install them on external storage anymore, with March update I don't have these problems

I don't know if it's related, but the app AntennaPod doesn't recognize any external storage on my S4mini (it did on Android 9). With OSMAnd, the only way I found to use external storage is to manually specifiy the folder <extSD>/Android/media/net.osmand.plus. It doesn't seem to have access to the standard folders like <extSD>/Android/data/net.osmand.plus/files or <extSD>/Android/obb/net.osmand.plus. Unfortunately, AntennaPod doesn't have that option, so I cannot really use it at the moment except in pure streaming mode due to limited internal storage space on my S4mini.

I am on lineage-18.1-20220412-UNOFFICIAL-serranoltexx right now and never tried any other build of LOS18 as I recently upgraded from arco's LOS16 / Android 9, where I didn't face that issue.

Does it have something to do with Scoped Storage Permissions as discussed here on stackoverflow? Does anybody know any workarounds?

Nevertheless, big thanks again to arco, who makes our senior phones to be still running!!! 🙏

I had the same problem. Try this:

Dial *#*#4636#*#*
Select "Phone information" (the first item / I'm using a german localization and so the translation maybe wrong).
Search for "Preferred network type" and set to "LTE/UMTS auto (PLR)"

Maybe the root cause is related to the switch off of the UMTS network in Germany / Vodafone?
