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. 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.

-- bit more friendly stock -> lineage instructions --

1. Unlock the bootloader
- Connect to WiFi network
- Enable OEM Unlock in developer options
- Turn off the tablet
- Boot to download mode manually by plugging in USB and holding all the buttons for few seconds
- Follow instructions on the screen
2. Connect to WiFi network and make sure OEM Unlock in developer options is still checked
3. Flash custom VBMeta image ( https://dl.twrp.me/gts4lvwifi/vbmeta.tar.html ) in Odin ( use AP slot )
4. After flashing VBMeta, boot to stock. It'll likely ask you to wipe data, if so do that
5. Connect to WiFi network and make sure OEM Unlock in developer options is still checked
6. Now you can flash TWRP ( https://dl.twrp.me/gts4lvwifi ) in Odin ( use AP slot once again ), for convenience you can hold volume up while flashing it so that you boot to recovery right after it's flashed
7. Install Lineage × whatever else you need ( gapps, addon-su, ... )
8. Format data
9. Reboot ( make sure to not install TWRP app when TWRP asks you to )

---

Also Odin download for those who can't find it on their own https://build.nethunter.com/samsung-tools/Odin_3.13.1.zip

Builds 20200824+ depend on Android 10 firmware, and thus from now on the recovery will abort the installation if you're still on Android 9 one.

You can update the firmware by flashing following Odin package: https://github.com/luk1337/gts4lv-fw/releases/tag/T720XXS2CUA3.

After the firmware update you should be able to flash newer builds.

You can update the firmware by flashing following Odin package:
- https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=8889791610682890115
AP -> AP_T720XXU1BTF7_CL18864194_QB32199498_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT_meta_OS10.tar.md5
BL -> BL_T720XXU1BTF7_CL18864194_QB32199498_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5

I have a new tablet running Android 10. I want to double check what I need to do. First I need to enable Dev mode and OEM and then unlock the bootloader, boot and enable wifi but don't create a google or samsung account or install any apps. Just enable Dev mode again. Then boot to download mode and flash vbmeta from AP. Boot to system and if it request a factory reset, do that. Again wifi and dev mode and back to download to flash TWRP. Now I can flash the LOS 18 build.
Question. Does the build include gapps? I don't see a gapps for LOS 18.

First of all, I want to thank you for your great work. Second, I want to ask how to root, because flashing latest Magisk canary leads to download mode and ROM doesn't boot with it

Which gapps you use?

I flashed full package and it worked for me. However, before flashing it I edited nikgapps.config inside of the file to change SetupWizard from 1 to 0 to disable it because they say it's buggy.

Got it working. Without setup, I'm having to install my apps one by one but no big deal. Starting from BTFN didn't help. I still had to flash the AP and BL files from post #3.

    How to see change log for every new version?
    Can't see something that does not exist.

    Hi,
    Just wanted to share my experience.
    I had 17.1 installed, and didn't want to test unofficial 18, because I knew I'd have to wipe at some point.
    So yesterday, when official 18.1 came, I downloaded it along with MindTheGapss, and flashed those in TWRP.
    Everything went fine :)
    By the way, 18.1 fixed the GPS problem I (and I guess some other) had: no need to restart android to get a GPS fix, now it works fine right after a reboot.
    1
    Upgraded from unofficial 18.1 to official 18.1 without issues. FWIW I have a very basic install; no gapps or magisk.

    Thanks @LuK1337 for keeping this updated. Sent a small donation to say thanks.

    Upgrade for me did not went well. That "not enough space" problem with MindTheGapps-11.0.0-arm64-20210328_143848.zip. Thanks for the warning, I run TWRP backup before.
    In first attempt I restored too many partitions, so ended with ugly loop. Reverted to stock, fresh install of 17.1, and then TWRP restore of *images only + Data. And I'm back to starting point.
    I will run update next weekend or so - please share your experiences and recommended gapps. Does previously installed gapps version matters? Would running some install/update of gapps on 17.1 via TWRP help with that mindthegapps problem while installing? It works on some devices, so I wonder what is difference or how one could catch it.

    ...maybe just use opengapps for now?

    Same here, with Magisk but no Gapps, upgrade went smoothly!
    Also noticed that the tablet is now running a lot faster (open apps, minimize, scroll etc.), not sure if that is indeed the case or just me though..
    Definitely feels more fluid. Good stuff 👍

    I downloaded the bleeding-edge canary, not sure if that's necessary.

    Its not necessary anymore. 21.2 works fine with Android 11, at least on all the devices I've tried so far. This one included. No need to run the canary builds.

    Regular Magisk Releases Here. (GitHub Link)

    Good to know!
    Could you write a quick guide of the steps you followed, along with some links to the software?
    Link to TWRP is in post 2, step 6. There are a few ways to flash TWRP, but my preferred way (since I've already got it and am just upgrading) is to download the .img file, flash it from within TWRP.

    For magisk, here's the link. I downloaded the bleeding-edge canary, not sure if that's necessary. https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk Install the apk, open the Magisk Manager app and download Magisk, flash it in TWRP.
