Unfortunately didnt help, as I mentioned it was showing up under "other devices" as "Android" but its not now. There is "unknown USB device (Device Descriptor request failed). Im starting to thing there is something wrong with the USB on my system, I also have an SDR I have been trying to get working but it also seems to have driver issues, the zadig driver did not work. But for general usage the USB has been working just fine so im not really sure.

Also check if windows update gives you any driver updates when phone is connected on adb screen. That worked for me.
When you say on ADB screen, do you mean cmd promtp or something else? I have only used ADB via cmd prompt. Sorry as I said im pretty new to ROMs and dont quite get all the jargon lol

After you started your device on fastboot/recovery while plugged on computer so windows can recognize devices.
The only way I can get the phone into fastboot is by using "adb reboot bootloader" in cmd, holding volume up and down and power doesnt do it for some reason? When I plug the phone in it already has gone through setting up the device if thats what you mean?

I have one question. Is it possible to get dolby atmos and the original camera app working on this rom? I just got my oneplus 8 pro and want to know so I don't get worse audio through speakers and worse pictures.

Also can you tell how to revert back to stock with fast boot? All the YouTube tutorials are with msm ...

I believe you shouldn't need msm for reverting back right?
I can say for sure that MSMDownloader works for this phone and brought me back to stock when I had a qualcomm issue when I I thought I knew better than the instructions.. stupid me.
Lineage OS's UI is very bad & lacks tons for functionality and customisation. I would much rather use de-googled Oxygen OS
its de-googled to a point? Google still tracks you and collects data about you. I went with the microG version of LOS and am quite happy. some apps (google nest and google home and gpay dont work but F google.) MicroG blocks info back to google and I dont want them to sell my data. getting off google drive and photos is the painful part.

Installed latest version that came yesterday and I lost safetynet, it does not pass anymore. I ran props on root terminal and chose correct device and it still fails.

Has anyone else managed to keep or restore safetynet to pass condition?

Or so I need to flash that modified boot image once again?
Yes I have all working in the microG image. I had to
turn off device registration and cloud messaging and safety net.
reboot.
turn on device registration
reboot
then turn on cloud messaging
reboot and back up all should be able to be turned on.. but this is for microG

Indeed..I tried that as well but I got errors for unable to flash to locked partition or some weird errors like that
anyone can assist me in this question of mine? hows this os compared to stock one battery wise? with and without gapps? also does it worth to change stock to this camera wise? i feel this stock camera is really good... any help/assist would be appreciated
dont use GAAPS. use microG. why give your data to google to sell and use to pump products to you?
Just use the microG image that has lineage OS https://lineage.microg.org/

Just MSMDownloader your phone to put back to stock then follow the lineageOS instructions. takes a little time but it will be the cleanest way.

the name "OpenGApps" is misleading. While OpenGApps uses free software to retrieve and bundle the GApps, the apps themselves are not free software, they are in fact the same Google Apps you find on a new phone.

Ok im going to clarify this step thats stumped me in the hopes I can help others in the same position as me.

If you are unable to see your device listed when you type "fastboot devices", it means the driver is not installed properly.

Connect your phone to your PC via USB and then follow this guide:


BUT, when you get to the part where you manually install the driver, you will find the driver you need in the zipped folder thats linked, not the installation directory thats in the guide

android-sdk_r24.4.1-windows\android-sdk-windows\extras\google\usb_driver

Also make sure your device is in fastboot mode before installing the driver and it will show up under "other devices" as "Android", you want to update this driver.

Hopefully thats clear and helps other noobs like me.

@LuK1337 or whoever can solve this issue though rare of mine. I am having a difficult time connecting to my home network and it can only be one of two things since have been able to reproduce this error 3 times now before asking for help. My wifi won't even turn on even though I literally turn it on and it automatically goes back to off and the odd part is it does see my saved network under settings but refuses to connect even with my password etc. Frustrating to say the least and it either has to be Luk's Rom or the latest version of Magisk Canary. I say this for like earlier the only solution and what I did to try and solve the issue was to reinstall the Rom. I am hoping I don't have to do it a 3rd time and I am running the latest ROM of his April 18th. In trying to solve this issue I have read most of this thread seeing if others have had this issue as well and the obligatory Google search which has very little information or it is very dated. Also attached to this post is the latest Magisk patched img file for Luk's April 18th ROM if you are on Global or from the USA. Model number IN2025. There was a fair amount of discussion earlier in this thread about people's frustration with getting magisk and root working properly but the problem was for those of us in the USA it was the the wrong patch for our phones and was also very outdated. I know for like many I did try this file and the result was another bootloop. So I decided to do it myself and hopefully it helps people out. Before using delete the 2nd img word. Thanks, Kevin

Not sure why it didn't download my img. file earlier but here is the link to it on Google drive. https://drive.google.com/drive/recent. P.S. Now that I know how to due this if anyone hear needs an global img file for a different version of this ROM I could do it for you.

I have this weird issue randomly since current and last build where apps just flashes on the screen after unlocking phone and i cant select anything, even top bar disappears and screen is almost blank. Today when receiving phone call (whatsapp) it flashed couple of times and disappeared for a while until came back and i was able to answer to it. Reboot does not change situation and it does not appear all the time and i'm using original launcher. I think this issue does not require unlocking phone but just switching to different app.... any idea?

I try to record this when it comes back again.

    You are not doing it right. When you reboot or start up your phone, push VU&VD after the first vibration that it does and you will go to the Bootloader. Do the same thing with VD only and you will be in Recovery.

    I have one question. Is it possible to get dolby atmos and the original camera app working on this rom? I just got my oneplus 8 pro and want to know so I don't get worse audio through speakers and worse pictures.
    I use the GCAM which is similiar to stock. I don't think this ROM has Dolby Atmos built in.

      I'm giving my phone to a family member and need to restore stock. I tried flashing the stock ROM in LineageOS recovery and flashing the fastboot stock ROM in fastboot...neither worked.


      My question is just that, how do I restore the stock ROM?

      Thanks!
      Ive found the easiest way through the Qualcomm tool.


      Restores to stock & locks bootloader. Been using this method as the goto for years on oneplus phones and always works like a charm. No hassle besides plugging it in and running it.

      Is it possible to flash this Rom without gapps? But use microg for Google services ?
      It already exist preinstalled on https://download.lineage.microg.org/instantnoodlep/ so no need to flash microg later. It is the latest version from here but with microg and signature spoofing enabled.

      I have rooted my oneplus 8 pro Indian version. Can you guide me how to install Lineage OS and then Microg?

      Step by Step. Any tutorial or anything? I'm new to this ???

      Do I need to install a custom recovery and flash this? -> lineage-18.1-20210403-microG-instantnoodlep-recovery.img

      There are so many files here: https://download.lineage.microg.org/instantnoodlep/

      How to install them?

      I know how to install Lineage OS from this tutorial:

      telling to do this commands:

      Code:
      fastboot -w (this will wipe your data)
      fastboot flash recovery
      fastboot reboot fastboot
      fastboot flash boot
      fastboot reboot fastboot
      fastboot flash dtbo
      fastboot reboot fastboot
      fastboot flash system
      fastboot reboot fastboot
      fastboot flash system_ext
      fastboot reboot fastboot
      fastboot flash product
      fastboot reboot fastboot
      fastboot flash vbmeta
      fastboot reboot fastboot
      fastboot flash vbmeta_system
      fastboot reboot
      You shouldn't follow youtube tutorials. That one, in particular, is like 2 installation guide revisions behind lmao.
      ( also for some reason they really like rebooting for no reason? )

      thankyou. I think I'll read these 25 pages on this thread for all my doubts before rooting and installing Lineage OS. I'll ask if anything is missing that has already not been answered
      Or just read the official installation guide.

      yaa I'm reading that. I have two questions :-

      1) LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway :- can you explain this more. What hardware part is being open sourced? And what does it mean for power users vs Oxygen OS users?

      2) Why lineage have it's own custom recovery? Why not TWRP or CWM?
      1) Pretty much every hardware feature depends on closed source code. Sorry but don't expect me reverse engineering stock ROM blobs.
      2) Because it's easier to maintain something simple enough to do the bare minimum and nothing more without depending on external projects. I'd very much hope to not maintain yet another TWRP port especially because I don't really need or want to use it. CWM is dead FYI, it hasn't been a thing since CyanogenMod 11 or so.

      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.
