Google Pixel 5a
I tried building TWRP with these sources in hopes it could produce a working product, but I got arcane errors that seemed to originate from the build system trying to build both the normal Lineage recovery and the TWRP. Any ideas what that's about? I've deleted the files but can try again.

Thanks for all your hard work Aleasto, I just ordered my pixel 5a yesterday and I am looking forward to installing Lineage on it!

I'm coming to the Pixel 5a from an LG V30 running SGCMarkus' 17.1 unofficial build as it does not and never will have VoLTE and...CDMA service here is "usable" - in the sense of you can make a call...eventually and maybe, if you're lucky you'll be able to talk long enough to finish your conversation without the call dropping

I do have a few questions (not specifically for anyone, they're general questions):

- I hadn't been able to find this specific question answered, but does VoLTE work on Verizon with this build?

- I know "Ol' Faithful" Titanium Backup has been defunct for awhile now but it was what I'd always used. Does it still work for moving data? Specifically SMS/MMS messages, call logs, bluetooth pairings, remembered wireless networks, and I know you can't restore apps anymore, but restoring data was still working when I moved to my V30 as long as you installed the app first. Is this still accurate or should I not even try?

- What do people use for backups these days? Since the Pixel has no micro sd slot (another phone, another feature that I had to trade off) I concerned about being able to backup my device, automatically on a schedule. I read that SeedVault was being adopted by Lineage as the "official" backup, but no new information on that front seems to have surfaced in almost a year.

Yes we do support VoLTE.

I don't know about titanium backup.
If you're looking to transfer data from your V30 running LineageOS just use Seedvault, assuming that your unofficial build is recent enough to have that on 17.1.
It supports SMS, call logs, apps and their data.
Also if you use google services, their backup provider does the job as well.

Works like a charm! Thanks for your hard work on this. Any recommendations on a replacement for GCam, as the one on the Play Store is so old? I downloaded the latest Camera PX from the GCamMod hub and seems to work well enough -- just want to make sure I'm not missing any other obvious options.

Oh just get the official apk from apkmirror or similar. Latest stable version is 8.2.400

I successfully flashed recovery but when I try to flash LineageOS I get the "device offline" error. adb devices shows no devices attached. Fastboot works and I can flash both recovery builds on the Lineage website, but again can't flash Lineage from ADB inside recovery.

adb.exe sideload lineage-18.1-20210930-nightly-barbet-signed.zip
adb: sideload connection failed: device offline
adb: trying pre-KitKat sideload method...
adb: pre-KitKat sideload connection failed: device offline

adb.exe devices

    Two update questions:

    - I just got notice for OTA update. For the OTA updates, do we need to disable/uninstall Magisk before applying the update?

    - Is there a way to do a Nandroid (or similar) backup in recovery before applying an update so we can roll back if it goes wrong?
    If you installed Magisk by sideloading in recovery it will persist the update. Otherwise you'll need to reinstall it after the update if you want to keep root.

    Built from source last week (using bramble instructions at the time) with no issues, and tried the nightly build today. Seamless both times, thank you!

    So if I have the previous unofficial build installed, can I dirty flash the official nightly with no issues?
    no

    @aleasto I just wanted to say thank you as this rom is so clean fluid, and fast. Much faster than stock Android. Camera quality is unreal. I was having a great experience on the Android 12 beta, but this is an even better experience. It's been a long time since I've had an Android device on lineage (or any custom OS), but your builds and the updates (as far as 10-14-21) have given me no issues whatsoever. I've retained root through every update and I'm still passing safetynet checks. Thanks again for all your hard work... For anyone curious, this is the best you can run on the Pixel 5a yet. 👍👍

    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. LineageOS does still include various proprietary hardware-specific code.

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

    Informations :
    • This ROM uses source built kernel, kernel modules, boot kernel modules (vendor_boot) and vendor image.
    • This ROM bundles the latest firmware so you don't have to worry about updating firmware beforehand.
    • To use the eSIM you need to have GApps
    Instructions :
    • Download the latest recovery image and rom zip
    • Boot to bootloader
    • fastboot flash boot lineage-recovery.img
    • Boot to recovery
    • Format data
    • Sideload LineageOS zip
    • Optionally flash any addons:
      • Advanced > Reboot to recovery
      • Sideload the addons
    • Reboot
    See https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/redfin/install for more detailed instructions (that's for Pixel 5 but the procedure is the same)​
    Downloads :
    Reporting Bugs
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/*
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved.

    Known Issues
    • Google Play Store provides a very out of date version of Google Camera
