Very kind of you towards someone who spends his free time so you can use LineageOS on your deviceLol, what a joke these instructions are. After flashing the latest build and rebooting you'll end up into the Lineage Recovery. How am I supposed to flash gapps from there?!
Had to go home and fastboot twrp...
Thats good oos 10 already has tons of bugs which gets carried to aosp rom too like 5ghz wifi keeps disconnecting for users with tp link archer c5 router.I think the best is to stay on android 9 because even for the 17.1 upgrade, when it's due, the requirement will be to be on the latest 9 OOS flashed on both slots

Maybe a dumb question ...
I'm having issues with video playback being slow and choppy regardless of which app is viewing the video.... in reading this thread it sounds like I just need to re-flash Lineage and Gapps, as this has fixed it for other people. But where can I get a TWRP flashable version of OOS 9.0.9? The OnePlus website only lets you download version 10, and other versions of 9.0.9 I can find here are setup to be installed with Fastboot. Maybe this is fine but I'm wondering if this is why mine isn't working right, since I flashed with Fastboot, then flashed TWRP, then installed Lineage and Gapps.
Thanks in advance for the help, I've been out of the flashing community for a long time.
I've found a download link for 9.0.9 for OP6 on this site:
I cannot direct-link the download links, as it seems they're dynamically regenerated. (Yes. They're TWRP:able)
Thank you! This worked perfectly. I flashed this, Lineage, and OpenGapps, my video playback is working correctly now.

One more question ... I don't have Trusted Face option under Smart Lock settings?? So I can't configure Face unlock. Reading through this thread it looks like other people have reported the feature is working? I flashed the Nano OpenGapps, which is supposed to include Face Unlock, and all other aspects of Gapps seem to be working fine.
Any thoughts? Is it possible to flash a higher tier of OpenGapps or switch to MindTheGapps without having to wipe data?
When upgrading an OS from one build to another, but stay within the same OS it's justa matter of upgrading. Just stay with the same Gapps variant when upgrading. Upgrading Gapps to a later version do however work as long as it's the same variant, just like upgrading the OS build. Just make sure it's the same OS variant, and the same Gapps variant.
For fresh/new installs:
I've found that Open Gapps, and other variants works best when flashed directly after the intended OS without any reboot in between. Gapps works best when it's included in the initial first boot.
It seems the OS doesn't like it too much when the OS already has made the initial boot, and then after that have Gapps installed. It does work, but has its own set of issues. Mostly minor, but still. (Some cases it might not work at all)
And switching between variants of Gapps without a clean boot (factory reset / wipe data) doesn't always work well. If one is lucky it can "kinda" work somewhat, but the results may vary greatly.
Hi. Can I flash this ROM from OOS 10?
First, thank you very much for your hard work!
I'm not new to fiddling around with custom ROMs on Android phones, but with my new OP6 I just can't get it running.
Also the a/b partition thing is very confusing to me.
After trying the Havoc OS ROM which prompted processes dying all the time, I wanted to try out this LOS 16 ROM.
Then I came to a state where I could not boot into anything, even twrp.
So I made the steps described in the [GUIDE] Mega Unbrick Guide for A Hard Bricked OnePlus 6 thread.
It worked and I got a stock 8.0.1.
After that I let the OTA Update give me Android 9.
Then I followed the intruction from the official LOS page.
But when i tried to install pico Gapps (arm64 Android 9), it returns error 20 to me, stating im using Android 10. ?!
When I tapped "reboot to recovery" in twrp, it promted "no os installed" and after that i could not even boot to twrp anymore with VolUp + Power.
I think I've made a mistake somewhere, but I cant find it.
There are guides where you have to flash multiple times while others dont do this.
Should I use the latest official twrp.img or the bluespark thing?
I'm completely lost by now.
Thank you for your help!
I'll try again. I'm installing the official OxygenOS 9.0.9 Full Zip from this thread..
After reboot, I'll do it again so hopefully both slots have got the latest Android 9 stock firmware.
From there I'll start over with the official LOS guide.
OK everything works fine now except Magisk. If I install it with the LOS recovery via sideload and reboot, its not there.
I used the addonsu from LOS and it worked.
I have finally installed. Can you tell me which GCam is the best for this ROM?
And I can't block ad with AdAway for a mount problem. Any idea?
Not sure about your AdAway issue, but I tried a few versions of GCam and found 6.1 Miniflex was the one that worked with this ROM. Link here.
What is your-- LineageOS version: LineageOS Download url: Gapps version: Did you-- wipe: restore with titanium backup: reboot after having the issue: Are you using-- a task killer: a non-stock kernel: other modifications: Provide any additional information (observations/frequency of problem/last version it worked on/etc) as needed:
I think OTA updates are a challenge for a/b devices like this one. Looking at the procedure how they are flashed manually, I am looking forward to see a way how OTAs achieve the same!
