Hi guys, I just read:
Google allows custom ROM users to register their Google Services Framework (GSF) ID on their certification page in order to continue using Google Play Services on their LineageOS device.

- I want to install LOS but don't know if this certification will make you pass SafetyNet and be able to use banking apps and Netflix? Has anyone tried this?
AFAIK, that will not allow you to pass SafetyNet. However, you can currently pass SafetyNet on LOS by installing Magisk, MagiskHide Props Config module, and Universal SafetyNet Fix module. I'm using Magisk V23.0, Universal SafetyNet Fix V1.2.0, and the latest MagiskHide Props Config.

This is the changelog from

17/12/20
  • December ASB
  • Rebased on r19 tags
  • Added Active Edge support (credits to kdrag0n)
  • Added battery light / notification LED customisation
  • Added new Styles customisation from AOSP
  • Lots of bug fixes and general improvements

Can anyone tell me what the text in Red means. Does the notification LED customization mean that the LED notifies(blinks) when there is a call/text etc ?

I am looking of this feature. Light flow worked till yesterday and today it does not work. Not sure what chnaged overnight.

TIA.

With LOS 18.1 for the Pixel 2 & 2 XL, there’s an option to have the notification LED illuminate with custom colors for specific apps and their notifications. This can be setup by a user for any installed apps on their phone, a very useful option.

Hi,

I'm having some issues installing LineageOS on my taimen. I've done it before but it doesn't seem to want to work now. I initially tried to use TWRP but i could sideload or access any zips on the device so I flashed Lineage Recovery and I can intiate Sideload but its just stuck at Verifying.. any advice?

EDIT: ok figured it out. Had to place the zip on an external drive, make sure my phone was in Slot A, boot TWRP, mount the external drive and flash from there, I got a few errors saying it couldn't mount /Vendor but it seems to work

This is exactly what I'm trying to do. Which props signature did you use?

Do you really have to wipe internal storage to install Lineage? I see some guides saying to just wipe data, cache, system, and dalvik cache with TWRP, but leave internal storage alone. Other guides say to do a factory reset or wipe userdata using fastboot (which I assume wipes internal storage). What's correct?

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11.0, 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.

    What's working

    • Active Edge
    • RIL (Calls, SMS, Data)
    • Bluetooth
    • Wi-Fi
    • Camera
    • Video Recording
    • Video Playback

    Installation

    1. Download the latest supported Lineage OS build, TWRP image and optionally the TWRP installer zip.
    2. Reboot to bootloader
    3. Wipe userdata for initial install (fastboot format userdata)
    4. Fastboot into TWRP recovery (fastboot boot twrp.img)
    5. Flash the latest build of Lineage OS
    6. Reboot to bootloader and fastboot TWRP again
    7. (Optional) Flash gapps of choice (MindTheGapps are recommended)
    8. Reboot to system and don't install the TWRP app
    9. (Optional) Flash custom kernel / TWRP / Magisk

    A more detailed installation guide can be found on the wiki.

    Updates

    Simply repeat steps 4 - 7. You shouldn't need to flash factory images as all partitions (firmware, vendor etc.) are updated with the lineage zip.

    Official builds are now available for downloading. The migration process from my unofficial builds is as follows:

    1. Download the latest version of Lineage OS and the lineage recovery image for your device from here.
    2. Reboot to bootloader
    3. Flash the recovery image to your boot partition (fastboot flash --slot all boot /path/to/recovery.img)
    4. Reboot into recovery
    5. Flash the official build of Lineage OS (adb sideload lineage.zip)
    6. If you have gapps installed, reboot to recovery again and ensure you flash gapps again before booting into Lineage OS
    7. Reboot your phone and enjoy!
    Or if you use TWRP you can just follow the normal updating steps and skip flashing the new recovery image.

    If you are coming from a previous version of Lineage OS, please refer to the wiki.

    I've uploaded a slightly updated build to amend the missing live captions button when adjusting volume. Apologies for the inconvenience.
