Installing ROM, Gapps & Magisk on the VS980

I compiled some steps below to hopefully help others. (Assuming you have already rooted your phone and have TWRP recovery installed)

Current ROM & Gapps installed on the VS980 (coming from previous 18.1 build)
* lineage-18.1-20220627-UNOFFICIAL-vs980
* BiTGApps-arm-11.0.0-R26_signed
* Magisk 25.2(25200) (I flashed this in recovery then rebooted and installed the Magisk app to get to the latest version
* Does not Pass Safety Net (Known Issue)

Enter Recovery / TWRP


1. Take your phone and press the power button; then select “power off”.

2. Wait while your phone is shutting down, wait a few seconds and then proceed.

3. Now, press the volume down and power button at the same time for 2 or 3 seconds until the LG logo appears on the display.

4. Then release the buttons and then press and hold them again.

5. Keep pressing the buttons until the recovery mode menu will be displayed on your LG G2. You should see "Rooted" at the top left of screen.


wipe > advanced wipe = (advanced wipe is not necessary but I use this method)

Davlik / ART Cache
*** Do Not Wipe "Internal Storage" ***

* Flash ROM - lineage-18.1-20220627-UNOFFICIAL-vs980

* Wipe Cache / Davlik

* Flash Gapps - BiTGApps-arm-11.0.0-R26_signed

* Wipe Cache / Davlik

* Flash Magisk 22

* Wipe Cache / Davlik

Reboot System

Install Magisk App 25.2(25200) Open app and update it to latest version. Reboot

Phone Rooted. Does not Pass Safety Net (Known Issue)

This is what I installed additionally but not necessary:
Install Google Messages from the Play Store

Install Google GBoard from the Play Store

Install Google Chrome from the Play Store

Hello @aleasto,

It has been a while. Hope all is well!

I recently installed lineage-18.1-20220627-UNOFFICIAL-vs980 (working well (y) ).
I also have a Samsung tablet running Android 12 ( big shout out to @html6405 (y)). However, I was testing and tried to use my banking app from both devices. The banking app does not function properly, so I called the bank and they told me I needed to update my both devices to the latest OS, so I am guessing security updates?

I am saddened to find out our device has been dropped from support.

I hope the last 4 builds are the best builds since I deleted all the previous builds from 20220112 - 20220921 but kept md5/sha256 sums for both the rom/recovery which comes out to 37.

I'm curious if anyone will make unofficial builds.

A stable custom kernel would be awesome. I have been fiddling with kernel tweaking magisk modules with only minor improvements and sometimes a couple issues. Some of those modules require payments to unlock all the features.

We will see soon if /e/OS and LineageOS for microG will continue to make new builds for our device as those are the only other roms I know that have current builds being made.

Edit: Looks like maintainers @aleasto can readd devices as monthly builds. That's a relief.

I think its time to let old grandpa rest...

Thank you too much..so much..very much?!!

And folks,..hello..

Time to faced the reality,..Im so mad n obsessed with G2 with it most affordable n comfortable touch on my palm of my hands?!

However.. LG optimus G2 and Samsung galaxy S7 is THE BEST in DECADE .. hope U agreed with?! What I hate from nowtime mobile phone is their stupid cam. hole on front and back..make me sick..

Now I used only LG G2 and S7 with latest custom modified ROM until the last..the end..next 2 years is a MAX!! I can use both for my daily driver..still ok and being good?!!

Im proud with it,..no shame?! Goodbye everyone..we've wonderfull time almost 10 years..

yes, thanks - it works now :)

for everyone else with the same "issue" (in English):
1. go to Windows 10 device manager (right click "This PC" > Properties > Device Manager)
2. you'll see "Android Phone" there (on top), and under it - "LG Android Interface"
3. double click "LG Android Interface", select update driver
4. select "Browse my computer for driver software" and on the next page
5. select "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer" and on the next page
6. select "MTP USB Device" > click "next"
7. driver should be updated and installed

now the phone is visible under "Portable devices" in device manager as "LG-D80x" and you can browse its internal storage with Windows Explorer

thanks to @theelderstatesman for the guide and screenshots he sent via PM :)
I just deleted driver , then Connected my redmi note 7 pro and it can now transfer files to amd from pc.
Ty very much

Thank you @nixchecka for this, really appreciate :)
How long are you going to add the security patches?

As for everybody else, did someone tried it?
Is everything else exactly the same as with @aleasto build?

    LineageOS 18.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11 (R), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    * Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    * Submitting bug reports on nightly builds is the leading
    * cause of male impotence.

    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.

    The source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features

    • Please follow the instructions at lineageos wiki
    • Clean flash if coming from UNOFFICIAL LineageOS or a different ROM

    Unofficial builds: sourceforge
    Thank y'all for the feedback. Enjoy.
    Hi folks, this is my first post in several years. My Huawei P30pro is under warranty in repair and so I took my LG G2 out of the drawer and installed this ROM. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for keeping the LG G2 alive and for developing this great ROM. With the Stock Lollipop ROM I didn't get very far with my apps because they don't run on Android 5. Many, many thanks to you 👍🏻
