¯\_(ツ)_/¯
For anyone who's been using MindtheGapps from OP and having trouble with the assistant crashing or not registering your voice using English then there is a fairly simple fix I didn't know about until now. Go to:

1. Settings > Apps and Notifications > Default Apps --> Select Google as your digital assistant app
2. (Optional: Assistant on Squeeze) Settings > System > Gestures > Active Edge --> Select, "On Squeeze Assistant"
3. Settings > Google > Settings for Google Apps > Search Assistant and Voice > Google Assistant > Languages
4. Click the + language button to add something like Deutsch. This will warn you the new assistant isn't available on this language and you can then acknowledge it and the Google Assistant will be the old working version. This fixes screen off, "Hey Google" for me and the Squeeze for Assistant gesture. Hope this helps someone else using LOS 18.1!

That's why I try to only use opengapps, I find they work pretty much solid every time. Didn't crash using OG when I tested LOS.

I did try to use Opengapps however Android Auto immediately locks up my device when connected to my car. So I have to use Mindthegapps since it works better with Android Auto.
This is good to know, my 2006 Jeep is a bit to old for AA, but my wife's buggy isn't. I will test a few things in her buggy with AA and see if I can get it working with OG. I prefer OG because its more recent with the latest Google framework (I found over years of testing) but it doesn't take AA into account.

    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
    • Face unlock
    • Screen attention
    • RIL (Calls, SMS, Data)
    • Bluetooth
    • Wi-Fi
    • Camera
    • Video Recording
    • Video Playback
    • Audio ( Record and Playback )
    • Sensors
    • Flash

    What's not working

    • Soli motion sense (proprietary)
    • 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 recovery (boot) image, 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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
