so after flashing recovery?
Not technical enough to follow 4 easy steps...
Luk the problem is not following the tutorial. The problem is it's not very well written. For instance. It's not told clearly that after flashing recovery, can you boot in Oxygen OS or do what?

It's says Flash recovery. Ok then what?

After flashing do you power of your device and directly boot into recovery with volume down + power ??? Or you can BOOT to oxygen OS and then power off and boot to recovery?

Do you perform adb sideload copy-partitions.zip in recovery? or you can boot to oxygen OS and perform adb sideload

It says ON the Device, select "Apply Update", them "Apply from ADB" to being sideload
Where? In Recovery Mode? Or Download/fastboot Mode?

The documetation is not welcoming for new comers. Maybe next time let me write it. Allow Github users to pull request documentation

Then reboot to recovery; past that everything else should make sense.

>Allow Github users to pull request documentation
I don't control that. https://wiki.lineageos.org/contributing_wiki.html

I agree it's not the most self explanatory but then again, flashing custom ROM to device isn't your average day either. You need to have background information to do these and what to do if something fails.

Also as an answer, if you let oxygenos or any other stock rom on other phones to boot in middle of installation good chances are that it will replace custom recovery with stock one.

Take a look at this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...odlep-11-lineageos-18-1.4192827/post-84630617

It should give you more information and more steps (some are unnecessary depending what you want). I myself combined this and lineageos page to make the initial installation. Your results may vary.

ALSO! Big ALSO: Read both installation instructions couple of times through so you fully understand what happens and when and why. This is important so you don't need to focus on instructions 100% when things are moving forward. Don't start unless you have full battery, you know what you are doing and sometimes things fails and you might (soft or hard)brick your device. Have an exit or instructions for that too.

Don't forget to read warnings.

I won't reply to them anymore. Got it.
I was little scared as it was my first expensive device after 3-4 years. I have always been a samsung user with ODIN and other trash(KNOX count). YES the installation instructions are SMOOTH as FOOK. Sorry I was asking too many questions without trying them. Sorry again :(

Even a 10 years old kid can install this ROM. Sorry again

Hi eveyone!

I am trying to get lineage working on my just bought 8 pro, I have been following the guide on lineages website but I am stuck at "fastboot devices", when I type "adb devices" it will show up connected, after rebooting the bootloader and entering fastboot mode, none of the fast boot commands work. "Fastboot devices" brings up nothing. It seems to be that the drivers are not set up correctly. So I have been trying to fix that by following this guide:


But unfortunately my phone is not showing up in "other devices" (although it was yesterday) so I am unable to manually install the driver. Since I have been following a number of guides and trying numerous things to get it working im not even sure now if i have set something up incorrectly so that the device no longer shows up in device manager. "Fastboot oem unlock" doesnt do anything either obviously. I have not set up custom ROMs before so this is a bit daunting (and im clueless to be honest) but I really want to get Lineage up and running.

I have tried different USB ports and 2 different cables, one of which I use to transfer photos to my PC so I assume its not just a charging cable and since it can detect the device I dont think thats the problem. I have reboot my PC multiple times, not sure what else to try at this point, so any help or ideas would be much appreciated!

Im trying to do this on windows 10.

Did you enable developer options and enabled usb debugging?

What steps did you make?
Yes, I updated to Android 11 before I started, followed everything in the lineage guide. I think I will try uninstalling the universal ADB driver, maybe thats why I cant see the device anymore as I think windows will only show it if a driver is not installed.

    I am sorry that you feel I am not giving you enough info to help me and might be following the wrong device model? I can assure you I am. 5. In the instructions wiki it says to flash recovery-recovery.img to your phone before proceeding and that is what I am trying to do. If you don't want to help me this is fine but please give me the exact cmd to get recovery on my device for the 8 pro though I am pretty sure I am already. Thx, Kevin
    Dear sir, please take a look at the attached image.

    I had same? issue for not having contacts at all in the beginning. I had to flash mindthegapps package and reset phone once so I would start using the phone on google way, not lineage.

    There was no contact syncing under google account without me doing that. Then again, my contacts ARE under google account.

    My contacts are in a csv file, available for importing into any contacts app.

    Luk1337 , is it possible to repair the manual network search, unfortunately i cannot search the networks in manual mode, even is have both sim cards even when 1 single sim card... i use lineageOS 18.1 instantnoodlep (oneplus 8 pro)

    New issue with latest build. Sometimes last used application shows up for a brief moment when i unlock the phone. When that happens, you don't get rid of it until you close the app from recently used (multitask view). Even if you launch other application -> lock phone -> unlock the previously shown app will be visible again for a moment. Short video of this happening:

    It does this maybe twice per day or so, can't recall if i had this issue on first build.

    EDIT: I do have Nova Launcher installed, forgot to test if i switch it to original launcher.
    That only happens with third party launcher and it's definitely not a *new* issue. You can repro it very easily with system dialogs in apps but it's probably AOSP issue anyway.

    @williamshockley I use this ROM without gapps. It works just fine. It's been my daily driver for a month now.

    This is probably for my own reference more than anyone else but this is the process I followed (step by step) for successful safety net attestation, MindTheGapps (for those that want to get away from google), and Location services provider:
    1) Download Latest L18.1 build from Luk1337 (https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=320828)
    1a) Unzip the build to some folder-DON'T DELETE THE ZIP FILE (probably be good to rename that Zip file "LineageOS18.zip")
    2) Download ADB/platform tools on computer (https://www.xda-developers.com/install-adb-windows-macos-linux/)
    3) Start phone and make sure it is on the appropriate Android OS version (for this version of lineage it should be 11)
    3a) If you are not on the correct version of android you need to update through your standard (Stock Rom) to the latest version (for oneplus 8 pro OxygenOS you can just click through the update prompts in settings and then you should be updated to Android 11)
    4) Enable developer settings (read the article on how to install ADB-it shows you how to enable dev settings)
    4a) Allow USB debugging (again refer to the guide above)
    4b) Allow OEM unlock (
    )
    5) connect usb to phone/computer and ensure device is recognized by typing "adb devices" in the command prompt of the computer
    6) Type "adb reboot bootloader"
    6a) Verify that your computer recognizes your fastboot device-type "fastboot devices"
    6b) If your computer doesn't recognize then you need to manually select the driver for the android device in your device manager->universal serial bus device (https://visualgdb.com/KB/usbdebug-manual/) sorry if you run a mac
    7) Unlock the bootloader-type "fastboot oem unlock" (
    )

    **Probably should reboot here if you want just to be safe and make sure you didn't mess up the bootloader unlock process/android version update**

    8) In the bootloader, you need to flash the LOS recovery.img found in that unzipped folder from step 1a-make sure you have the path to the recovery.img file correct! (if you need to get back to bootloader cause you rebooted just fire up that powershell/command line, connect the phone, and type "adb reboot bootloader") type "fastboot boot 'some/folderpath/tofile/recovery.img'"
    9) From the recovery menu you use the volume buttons to navigate (and power button to select) Factory reset -> Format data/factory reset -> Format data
    10) Then navigate and select Advanced -> Enter fastboot
    11) TIME TO INSTALL THE ROM!! Remember that ZIP file you downloaded way back in step 1? You'll need to grab that zip file path and use it for this command-type "fastboot update 'some/folderpath/tofile/LineageOs18.zip'"

    ***The phone will reboot at this point automatically IF YOU DON'T WANT/NEED SAFETY ATTESTATION/MIND THE GAPPS/LOCATION SERVICES YOU CAN STOP HERE***

    12) Should you choose to continue you will have to go through the setup(I recommend skipping through all the setup stuff if you can) on the phone and make sure you have MindTheGapps downloaded (http://downloads.codefi.re/jdcteam/javelinanddart/gapps)
    13) On the phone reenable developer settings and USB debugging. open powershell, connect phone and type " adb reboot recovery"
    13) Once in recovery use your volume/power keys to navigate to Apply update->Apply from ADB (this activates ADB Sideload)
    14) Once in sideload mode simply type "adb sideload 'some/folderpath/tofile/MindTheGapps.zip'"
    15) Once mindthegapps is installed then you can back out of the adb update menu and select "Reboot System now"

    ***The phone will reboot at this point-IF YOU DON'T WANT SAFETY ATTESTATION/LOCATION SERVICES YOU CAN STOP HERE***

    16) For safety attestation (the ability to use google service framework required apps like Banking or Pokemon go) you can install Magisk (I am sure there are other ways but I did it this way). From your phone browser-download Magisk-v22.apk (https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases) and install (you should be prompted if you want to install from unknown sources-just click yes and install)
    17) I will now just follow the installation guide from magisk (https://topjohnwu.github.io/Magisk/install.html)
    18) Connect phone and copy the boot image to your device. This is found in that unzipped folder from step 1a-the file is boot.img
    19) Press the Install button in the Magisk card
    20) Choose “Select and Patch a File” in method, and select the stock boot.img that you just copied
    21) The Magisk app will patch the image to [Internal Storage]/Download/magisk_patched_[random_strings].img
    22) Copy the patched image to your PC with ADB "adb pull /sdcard/Download/magisk_patched_[random_strings].img" (or you can just navigate to the file from your computer and place it somewhere you can find-you'll need to use this soon)
    23) Reboot to fastboot "adb reboot bootloader"
    24) Flash the patched boot.img file you copied to your computer "fastboot flash boot /path/to/magisk_patched.img"
    25) Reboot
    26) Open the magisk manager app that now has root access and click settings->enable magisk hide
    27) From your phone browser download the magisk module "Universal SafetyNet Fix" to force SafetyNet to use basic evaluation (https://github.com/kdrag0n/safetynet-fix)
    27a) In the magisk app go to modules (looks like a puzzle piece)->install from storage and select the Zip file you just downloaded (don't reboot just yet-simply use your back button at this point)
    27b) Add the magisk module "MagiskHide Props Config" from the Magisk repo (click the little magnifying glass)
    27c) Install some command line interface on the phone (I used Termux-https://termux.com/)
    28) Reboot ->open termux and follow the instructions from MagiskHide Props Config
    28a) in termux type "su" then "props"
    28b) edit the device fingerprint (1)->pick a certified fingerprint (f)->Oneplus(21)->Oneplus 8 pro europe IN2023 (40)->Android version 11 (2)->confirm (y) and then reboot
    29) Once your device restarts open the Magisk manager. There should be a button for "Check safetynet". Click it. You should see a "success" message

    ***At this point you have installed a custom rom with a minimal Gapps package, rooted your phone, and configured it to pass safetynet. This means you can now use all apps without restriction. I recommend installing Amazon App store, Aurora App store/Aurora services magisk module, and FDroid app store to get all the apps you need without providing a google account. IF YOU DON'T WANT LOCATION SERVICES YOU CAN STOP HERE***

    30) On your phone-download UnifiedNlp.apk from microg (https://microg.org/download.html). Do not install!
    31) In the magisk app module repository you can search and add the "App systemizer (terminal emulator)"
    31a) I also added the Magisk Module "Busybox for Android NDK" but I am not sure if this is required
    32) From Fdroid (or wherever) install (at a minimum) the MozillaNlpBackend, NominatimNlpBackend
    32a) you can optionally install SatStat (to check all your location data)
    33) In termux type "su" and then "systemize". Select "Systemize given APK (3)"
    34) If your browser default download location is the download folder then simply type /sdcard/download/unifiednlp.apk
    35) restart your phone
    36) Open the unifiednlp app and select "configure backends". You should see Mozilla locations service here. Check it
    37) Select "configure address lookup backends" and select "Nominatim"
    38) Select "self check" and Allow permission to access approximate location (I would suggest all the time but that is your choice).
    39) In phone settings->location make sure "use location" is on.
    40) Open sat stat (and give location permission). You should se a bunch of red and blue dots on a compass. You should now have location services. If you don't....sorry....

    Hey is this rom maintained by official Lineage OS team?
    Yeah, a team of one person - me.

    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 /proc/last_kmsg. (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.
