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.

  • Face unlock
  • Screen attention
  • RIL (Calls, SMS, Data)
  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi
  • Camera
  • Video Recording

What's not working

  • New Google Assistant (proprietary)
  • Adaptive charging & extreme battery saver (proprietary)
  • Pixel Stand features (proprietary)
  • Feel free to report any issues you may encounter with relevant logs

Installation

  1. Download the latest supported Lineage OS build and boot.img, and ensure you are on Lineage OS 17.1 or Android 11 already.
  2. Reboot to bootloader
  3. Flash the provided boot.img to both slots (fastboot flash --slot all boot boot.img)
  4. Reboot into recovery and factory reset for initial install
  5. Sideload the latest build of Lineage OS (adb sideload lineage.zip)
  6. (Optional) Reboot to recovery again and flash gapps of choice (MindTheGapps are recommended)
  7. Reboot to system
  8. (Optional) Flash custom kernel / Magisk

Updates

Simply repeat steps 5 - 7. You shouldn't need to flash factory images as all partitions (firmware, vendor etc.) are updated with the lineage zip.

Nice with a solid new android 11 rom. Cant get get assistans to work with squezee. And hänt found "now playing "
Some Pixel exclusive features like Now Playing or Live Captions require a device personalisation services priv-app that is only installed with micro opengapps or larger. You may have to wait until fixed gapps packages are provided by OpenGapps.

    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!

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

    The March release of this ROM has been absolutely outstanding. Android Auto works with my vehicle using Mindthegapps OOTB, face unlock is fast and battery life is spectacular. This is all I run on my phone now and I appreciate the builds. I hope other users are trying it out!

    Actually, upon further investigation the assistant is activated in the background, but there is no pop up on the screen. Is this because of the gaps package I chose? Could I flash a different one to have some sort of visual cue that the assistant is running?
    Go into settings, apps and notifications, assistant, all settings, languages, and add a language that Google doesn't support with the new UI. It'll use the old UI instead. Screenshot_20210415-192007_Google.pngScreenshot_20210415-191717_Google.png

    Does it have the Google call screening?
    It does. I just installed Google Phone from the Play Store, go to Settings > Apps > Default Apps and assign phone to Google Phone. Launch the app and it asked immediately if I wanted to turn it on or it can be found in the Google Phone settings. Using Mindthegapps linked in the OP as the base Gapps install, I don't know if it will work using other Gapps packages.

    Updated from the unofficial builds and all running smoothly.

    Thanks for all your work. 👌

    Lineage OS 18.1 (20/1/21)

    • January ASB
    • Fixed inconsistent gapps install behaviour due to virtual a/b
    • Added the ability to reboot to fastbootd from advanced restart options
    • Various bug fixes and improvements
    Thank you for tolerating the frustrating gapps installation issues on the last build. This substantially delayed this months update but I'm pleased to finally be able to provide one with this fixed. Gapps installation should consistently work now.

    EDIT: stock opengapps seems to not work, as it is too big despite OpenGapps thinking it will fit. Packages up to full in size should work fine however.
