I am not able to install LineageOS updates with LineageOS updater any more. Download works but when I hit install, it just gives me "Install error" with no further information. The updater worked until I did some modifications to the device which might cause that error:
  1. Installed TWRP.
  2. Installed Aurora Services as system app using adb root, remount and push.
  3. Installed vendor firmware update as described here.
I went back to Lineage Recovery and was able to install an update of LineageOS through recovery but the LineageOS updater is still corrupt. I use LineageOS for microG. Any ideas how to get the LineageOS updater working again?
You can't OTA if you use adb remount. You have to do adb enable-verity+adb reboot to be able to do OTA again.

So after doing adb enable-verity I lost the Aurora Services installation. Is there a way to enable varity and keep the installation of a system app?

Guys, I'm new to LOS in the OnePlus 8T but have used a lot in the past with TWRP... is there any difference between Lineage Recovery and TWRP in this case? Is there a "more recommended" one? Thanks!

Remount / as RW manually, without adb remount or adb shell remount.
I tried mount --remount / -w over adb shell (with adb root). When I try to create directories or copy files with mkdir, cp, install or dd they create just empty files instead of copying or they tell me that my device has no space left when directories have to be created. Same with adb push. I guess I have to use Magisk or stuff like that?

First of all you need to know that you can't keep TWRP permanently when you use LineageOS updater since it overwrites your recovery with Lineage Recovery. Before I had my OnePlus 8T I used TWRP because it has more features. But I don't use recovery that much so I decided to keep Lineage Recovery for now.

If you want to keep TWRP permanently, you'll have to flash LineageOS updates with TWRP. You can also boot an TWRP image temporarily using fastboot while having Lineage Recovery installed on your 8T.

These are my experiences with recovery so far. Please correct me, if something is wrong.

Cool! That's what I needed to know. I was used to flashing everything through TWRP (LOS 14-15 era). I was away from the custom ROM scene for quite a while so it's good to check whether things are still the same or they have changed...
I'll just follow the official guide and use Lineage Recovery... I don't use the recovery for anything else and the updater is a great feature.

AFAIK the LineageOS updater has an option (a toggle under the three dots menu --> preferences) that allows you to disable flashing the recovery with each update.

In general this is true. But you can't disable this option on OnePlus 8T for some reason.

Is there any news for Android 12 based Lineage ? Will it come after the official release of OOS12 ?

In the guide you mentioned in step 3, what is DDR type 0 and type 1? Which to choose?

Hi @Nixsuki , is this still valid? I am looking for a guide to update LOS while keeping twrp and root. Los updates include LOS recovery which will overwrite the TWRP. So do I have to flash the TWRP A/B retention script by osm0sis somewhere in the middle of your steps?

Basically I have 4 possible files to flash:
  1. lineageos latest version zip (or install with the lineage updater app, not sure)
  2. magisk.zip,
  3. copy_partitions.zip
  4. twrp_retention script zip
Which is the order of flashing those and how to proceed?
Hi there, I quote my previous post to ask if someone has managed to update the ROM while keeping twrp and magisk? Maybe a mini-guide for newbies would be great: like joining the guide of LOS to update Oxygen Os firmware and then update LineageOs while keeping twrp and magisk

Lineage 18.1 was working perfectly until the most recent weekly update 123021 (Oneplus 8T). I'm not sure what you guys messed with but I am now having wifi connectivity issues, lost LTE Wifi Calling, and lost my Google Chrome bookmarks. :( I made no changes to anything on the phone, I just did the routine weekly update.

The downloads page also shows recent changes.

For the 8t: https://download.lineageos.org/kebab/changes/

Security patch will be listed there when merged. It will read as something with ASB (Android security bulletin) or just as security patch

OK thanks so the file turns out to be build/make/core/version_defaults.mk

Code:
$ grep 'PLATFORM_SECURITY_PATCH := ' ./build/make/core/version_defaults.mk
      PLATFORM_SECURITY_PATCH := 2021-12-05

I've had the Oneplus 8T for about a month and am loving it so far.

I've run into one painful issue though, and I haven't been able to troubleshoot it properly.

When listening to a podcast on the speaker the volume seems to go down and back up. I've noticed this on several podcasts, with two different apps (Antennapod and Podverse). I haven't noticed it when using a bluetooth headset, only when using the speaker.

I've kept an eye on the volume slider, and it doesn't seem to move, even though the volume is noticeably going down.

I've looked for volume limiter settings, I've disabled AudioFX but I can't figure this one out. Is anyone else having the same problem? Any clues what a solution might be?

    Yea this is interesting. Maybe we can try to pinpoint things we have in common. What is your 8T device model, firmware model and version, etc? I downgraded my YouTube version to the last v16 version and it seems to have helped somewhat, although it's not completely gone (and this could be placebo effect, I'm not sure).

    I tried rewinding and replaying the video/audio when these drops/boosts occur, and it seems like it is occurring with the same pattern each listen, so I don't think this is some semi-random effect of another installed app interfering with the audio.
    I'm currently on a KB2000 on 11.0.13.13.KB05AA, but I wouldn't pay too much attention to that since this has been an issue for me since this ROM was first released. I've been back to it 3 times in the hope the issue was magically fixed, but alas no. So long story short, it's not firmware specific.

    It's also not Youtube specific for me, so I'm convinced you're right about the placebo effect. If I download a video from Youtube (using an external program) I experience the exact same issue when playing that video in VLC (or MXPlayer) and for me that points to something in the audio signal path. It's definitely something related to either auto-volume leveling or audio compression. Something designed to prevent sudden loud noises that's overcompensating.

    But yeah, it is really annoying and a dealbreaker for me. It's such a hassle to return to stock that I'm not going down the road of installing this again. Just wanted to add a +1 to your comment in the hope it helped it get noticed.

    Don't try Lineage Microg or CalyxOS builds either in the hope it'll be better-- They have the exact same issue. Just giving you a heads-up there.
    i had the same problem. I read somewhere that Dynamic Range Control could couse these issues and confirmed that it was active on the build for oneplus 8t. After i flashed this : https://github.com/Magisk-Modules-Alt-Repo/drc-remover which set drc to disabled, my issues with speaker volume is gone!

    Are you saying some (or all?) OOS12 firmware image files can still be used to be applied as upgrade? That would be great (but perhaps needs some documentation).
    I don't think you really understand what you're talking about...

    @LuK1337 : I wonder : OOS 12 changed partition layout ... is LOS for 1+8T going to do so as well? I ask because 1+8T has some bright years and upgrades to come, so I wonder how LOS will keep up to date with specific OOS firmware partitions. Thanks for your amazing work.
    GPT is still the same and super partition layout doesn't matter.

    I had not checked layout but obviously the block devices are the ones to upgrade and I see, for example, imagefv.img 11.0.13.13.KB05BA has size 20480 and imagefv.img KB2003_11.C.16 has size 1191936 so I am hesitant to fastboot flash a bigger one ...
    Let's just defer that discussion until builds that require Android 12 firmware are out, otherwise you'll just hurt yourself.

    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.

    How do you do backups? What would be a good way to keep backups if I wanted to flash this ROM on a semi daily basis? I noticed after flashing the ROM it asks if I want to restore from a backup.

    Another observation as I flashed the GMS version last night is there was no gallery app. Maybe this is normal.

    I would suggest Swift Backup. Was a titanium user, but I find Swift Backup to be better performing on Android 11.

    You could try to run fastboot --version and ./fastboot --version in your platform-tools directory and compare the output.

    Adding ./ did it. Thanks! :cool:
