LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, 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.

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.

Reporting Bugs
  • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
  • 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/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
  • 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. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

FAQ.
Q. The rom can't pass cts, why?
A. We don't use hacks to bypass safetynet attestation, we just use our fingerprint, so cts won't pass by default. You should install magisk and use magisk hide props module with pixel 4 fingerprint.

Thanks for the awesome rom - it has transformed my device (8T)

I'm having a problem (since installing) whereby the phone is stuck on "slow charging" no matter which cable/charger I use. I've tried cleaning out the port, but it really wasn't the issue.

Is there some different firmware I can try installing?

NB: The device isn't hot (or even warm)

Also, could be my imagination but it seems to charge properly if I turn it completely off...

    No problem with charging here, slow and fast is working.

    Would be fine if you write a faq with most common questions (like the ones you answered), just a suggestion.

    Wow, this ROM doesn't have a call log bug when using VoLTE.
    (Other AOSP based ROMs had an issue for me, caller's number always showing with my number when incoming call)

    Thank you so much to the dev.

    If you want safety net to pass. Download Magisk Hide Props from Magisk Manager and set the props from 8T European (MIUI10 fingerprint)

    Thank you for your work OP, being a LOS official mantainer is a hard and often unrewarded job. I hope you can find solution for those non-fatal bugs with the camera and mic whenever you and erfanoabdi have spare time.

    Any recommended gapps package variant?? I've heard the full package causes problems with LOS

      Front camera is not working :(
      ...
      It looks this issue isn't important enough, because the majority of users hasn't this problem.
      Xiaomi changed the frontcam sensor with 11-2020 batch.
      It is now OV13B10 (Omnivision). The old one is OV13855. (you can check this with "device info HW" app)
      Custom A10 rom's doesn't connect to this new camera, because the HW vendor image isn't updated in these rom's, so there isn't a driver for it.

      I found some A11 rom's does work with OV13B10 ,so I think LOS 18.1 will too.

      Hello!

      My SDcard from a few days disappears from file management app.
      I need to reboot the devices to see the memory again.
      is it my problem? (the card starts to be broken) or is it a LOS' bug?

      Have a nice day
      Happens for me too from time to time and on several roms (more on A11 then on A10). So this doesn't indicate your sdcard is going to break. Hint: after reboot let it settle for a few seconds and/or if you see the indicator for sdcard in the statusbar appearing shortly everything should went fine. Cheers

      if it helps with anything:

      BUG REPORT - front camera not detected in any app including the stock camera app and Camera2 API Probe, normally causes apps that require camera to stop working.
      Flashing ANXCamera doesn't fix it but based on people's comments, it should work out of the box.

      What is your--
      LineageOS version: 17.1
      LineageOS Download url: https://mirrorbits.lineageos.org/fu...neage-17.1-20210125-nightly-ginkgo-signed.zip (also updated to 20210201 but doesn't matter)

      Did you--

      Provide any additional information (observations/frequency of problem/last version it worked on/etc) as needed:
      before flashing,
      updated to the latest MIUI Global 12.0.3 Stable (QCOMIXM)
      kernel version 4.24.227-perf+
      Model: M1908C3JG, the 4GB 128GB model

      Stock camera: doesn't show the camera switch button, logcat: https://file.io/NGERieHfjn63
      Google camera (installed from Play Store): stops/crashes on switching, logcat: https://file.io/6yFQ7KyVRmpX
      OpenCamera: no front camera
      Most apps: crash

      Bump!
      I have the same issue. Phone mfg batch 2020.11
      On the original MIUI 12.0.1.0 (QCOEUXM) ROM, the kernel (QKQ1.200114.002) reports the front camera linux module as being an OmniVIsion OV13B10 (ov13b10_ginkgo) in Device Info HW App. Also "Supported" is listed as 20 (maybe the number of bundled camera kernel driver modules).

      On LOS17.1 the entry is missing, and "Supported" is 17

      Maybe the missing kernel driver can be included in the LOS17.1 kenel tree.

      You have China version? My phone PCOCNXM - China version and fastcharge doesn't work!
      I have the China version too. Fast charge works only in recovery (orangefox). I've had this problem for months now.
      2
      Is there a way to disable the charging led?

      When I trigger a search for updates it lists the weeklies since I flashed LOS 2 weeks ago but it also says "no new updates". Is this normal? The automatic check is set to Weekly, but never does a thing, and since this is my first time installing a ROM I wonder if maybe I should wait an "official" update (maybe monthly?).
      Settings > "battery light" (type this in the search box).
