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?The ROM is fantastic, thanks devs.
I use assistant often though, and find that it takes up to 10 seconds to activate. Does anybody have this issue? Is there a fix? I used the new "mind the gaps" for Android 11
I am only guessing here (becuae I am not in the UAE or any way to replicate your setup) so take it with a grain of salt. That being said, if its allowed on the mobile side (which I have no clue if it is or not), but if it is, and its only locked by the OS, then you might be able to get around the lock with a custom OS and ROOT. I would say its definitely worth the effort to try it, because I have VoLTE and it works great, BUT I am in the US using verizon.Just wondering, volte isn't working in uae on stock rom. Hence planning to install lineage os. Is it worth a try. I am not sure if volte will start working as it's enabled from carrier but google stock rom has the feature locked for countries outside usa.
I ran the OTA this morning and it worked without issue. Granted I was not rooted, although I did not have problems with GApps.Got a notification that a new LineageOS update was available. Is it safe to just do an OTA update through the built-in updater, or will this cause issues with Magisk and GApps?
Used to routinely flash ROMs on my Nexus 5 back in the day, haven't been dabbling in this world again after much time till the last week or so.
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.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?

Exactly what I came to this thread to find, you are a life saver! Got sick of using keyboard controls because voice control wasn't working. Thank you!
No, and as I stated in the A11 PixiDust/LOS/Scorpion forum(s) where you asked the same thing, its proprietary code by Google. Its also listed as not working in all forum threads so why are you asking this same thing over and over in the forums for multiple ROMs? What are you looking to do?Does the motion sense work now?
Here is the URL to report bugs in LOS, but make sure you do it right or it wont help. I would read through this first:where is the best place to submit bug reports?
mine is a SanDisk SDDDC2 - The one that can switch between USB-A & USB-C to easily plug into your phone. on 18.1 it wants to format the drive, all older versions of lineage/stock read the drive fine (various phones tested including another pixel 4 xl). maybe an issue with android 11, i haven't tried stock.

What was the point to this? I am not putting this down, but to really help others, you should clarify what this is regarding. For example, what does this post fix? OR at least explain the post for the newbs reading it so they do not follow it and think this is the install process for LOS (its more than needed for LOS).In case this might help someone... This details the steps I just took
to get 18.1 into a used Pixel 4. I'm not sure if I should cross-post this into the Pixel 4 forum as well.
1. Latest adb/fastboot here: https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-linux.zip
Copied to a new folder in my PC.
Reset PATH to see this folder.
2. Turn on phone. Settings->"About phone", tap "Build Number" 7 times.
3. Settings->System->"Developer Options", enable OEM unlocking & USB debugging.
4. Charged phone...It was at 34%.
5. Get latest Android 11 firmware here: https://developers.google.com/android/images
Extracted latest firmware: radio-flame-g8150-00082-210106-b-7065218.img
Extracted latest bootloader: bootloader-flame-c2f2-0.3-7062597.img
Settings->"About phone"->"Android version"
I verified my phone's firmware (baseband) was an older version.
6. Plugged fully-charged phone to PC
type: adb devices
If this returns "unauthorized", your phone should be asking you to authorize it.
On your phone, check “always allow”, and choose “OK”.
7. Unlock phone
type: adb reboot bootloader
Once phone restarts in fastboot mode, type: fastboot devices
You should see your phone listed
type: fastboot flashing unlock
Warning message on phone. This erases all data on the target phone.
Use volume keys to select "Unlock the bootloader" & press power button.
When phone returns, bootloader status says "unlocked" in red letters.
8. Update Android firmware
type: fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-flame-c2f2-0.3-7062597.img
Should see OKAY message
type: fastboot reboot-bootloader
Should see OKAY message
fastboot flash radio radio-flame-g8150-00082-210106-b-7065218.img
Should see OKAY message... I got "Writing radio_a" and "Flashing partition modem_a" OKAY
Should see OKAY message
I skipped loading the latest OS: fastboot -w update image-flame-rq2a.210405.005.zip
Use power button to restart phone. I saw the unlocked bootloader warning screen at bootup.
9. Since the phone was reset, I had to go through initial settings again.
Steps 2 & 3 again. I turned on USB debugging again.
I went to Settings->"About phone"->"Android version".
I verified that the latest firmware is installed.
10. I wanted to install TWRP. However, it says it needs a custom kernel installed.
I couldn't figure out how to install the "Kirisakura 7.4.0" that the instructions linked.
11. Flashed Lineage recovery
Got latest Lineage recovery here: https://download.lineageos.org/flame
type: adb reboot bootloader
type: fastboot devices
You should see your device
type: fastboot flash boot lineage-18.1-20210425-recovery-flame.img
I got "Sending 'boot_a' OKAY" message
Used volume keys to set "Recovery Mode" and pressed power button to go to recovery.
12. Flashed LineageOS from Lineage recovery
Got latest LineageOS here: https://download.lineageos.org/flame
Your phone should now be in the purple-themed Lineage recovery.
Mine said "Active slot: a"
"Factory Reset"->"Format data / factory reset"->"Format data"
My phone said:
Wiping Titan M...
E:can't send spi message: try again
Data wipe complete
Well, that's an error. ???????????????? Couldn't figure it out, so I just kept going.
Back to main menu: "Apply Update"->"Apply from ADB"->"ADB Sideload"
type: adb sideload lineage-18.1-20210425-nightly-flame-signed.zip
My PC screen showed:
"serving: 'lineage-18.1-20210425-nightly-flame-signed.zip' (~47%)
It stayed like that for a long time (minutes?) before coming back with:
"adb: failed to read command: Success"
My phone said "Step 1/2", then, "Step 2/2".
Back to main menu: "Reboot system now"
LineageOS started rather quickly, maybe 30 seconds.
I got an error, at first boot, that SIM manager keeps stopping (the phone has no SIM in it yet).
I also get an error when I try to use USB OTG. LOS 18.1 wants to format
any USB drive I insert. I got an empty drive and let it format. That drive is working fine.
13. Install Magisk
Instructions here: https://topjohnwu.github.io/Magisk/install.html
Copy lineage-18.1-20210425-recovery-flame.img to Download folder in phone
Install Magisk.22.1.apk. Get it here: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases/tag/v22.1
Run Magisk App
Click "Select and Patch a File"
Select lineage-18.1-20210425-recovery-flame.img file in your Download folder
Click "Let's Go"
Magisk creates a file "magisk_patched-22100_xxxxx.img" in Download
Copy magisk_patched-22100_xxxxx.img file to PC as "magiskpatched.img".
Restart phone in fastboot.
type: fastboot flash boot magiskpatched.img
Got "Sending 'boot_b'.....OKAY" messages
Restart phone to system
