LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of android, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock android for your device.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Wiki.





Important Info
DON'T USE TWRP 3.0.2-0 OR OLDER WITH LINEAGEOS. IT DOES NOT WORK CORRECTLY. USE NEWEST VERSION HERE

Current lineage 14.1 shamu nightlies are based on the N6F27M October 2017 update from google. So you should be using the radio and bootloader img from that update. They can be extracted from the factory image on google's site here. Or you can use the ones linked below that I already extracted:
Note: The radio and bootloader img is the same as the ones in last month's google update (NGI55D), so if your phone already has them you don't need to flash them.
radio-shamu-d4.01-9625-05.45+fsg-9625-02.117.img
bootloader-shamu-moto-apq8084-72.04.img
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VERIZON USERS: Google released a separate October 2017 security update (NGI77B) just for verizon users that has a different radio. So you'll want to flash it. I repeat, THIS RADIO IS JUST FOR VERIZON USERS.
radio-shamu-d4.01-9625-05.51+fsg-9625-02.118.img
You can use fastboot to flash the bootloader and radio.

More information and installation instructions can be found on the LineageOS wiki here.

Download Links
LineageOS: https://download.lineageos.org/shamu
Google apps: Beans GApps (recommend mini)
HEADS UP: When you initially install lineage, be sure you flash the gapps package with your ROM. If you boot your ROM, then go back and try to flash gapps after the fact, you're gonna have a bad time.
SU addon zip: Addon Install zip / Addon Removal zip NOTE: LineageOS does not come with root, so this is now provided for those that want it. The install zip is a one time flash, like gapps. Meaning, it persists when updating to a new LineageOS nightly. REF: https://download.lineageos.org/extras

is f2fs supported in the latest (12-07) nightly build? if it is supported, can you build the latest twrp version with f2fs support?

thanks for the answer and the device support

F2FS is supported since the first CM-14.1 nightly. I'm not maintaining TWRP right now.
Perhaps I will do that in the future but right now I have to less time to do that.

USB tethering seems to be broken in the 20161207 build. When you toggle it on, it immediately turns back off. I went back to 20161206 and it works again.

i am using these nighlys since ~11.24. (maybe), they are stable for dialy usage, only facebook likes to crash to desktop, but who cares :)

Elektroschmock:

have you got info about the direct boot feature? is it included in this version? cm recovery supports it?
i upgraded from 6.0.1 without wiping /data/media folder, so i have the older full disk encryption

Hurray for official cm14.1!!! And, just a reminder, the latest bootloader and radio are also available as flashable zips here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-6/development/fxz-nexus-6-recovery-flashable-fastboot-t3066052

What's the current best practices for flashing gapps? I remember we used to flash gapps with each new nightly. Then in cm13, that was no longer necessary, and, in fact, seemed to mess things up. I've been flashing the latest opengapps with each new cm14.1 nightly, but am not sure if that's necessary or recommended

I have more-or-less the same problem: if I go into settings / tethering & portable hotspot and toggle portable wf-fi hotspot on, it looks like it's trying, but after about a second it says "error"

i have flashed gapps two weeks ago and just installed nighlies over them, gapps backup / restore is working flawlessly

Noticing some additional weirdness on 12/7. Double pull-down on the notification shade doesn't work and neither does the home button or the task switcher. Even rolling back to 12/6, it is still broken. Something didn't upgrade correctly when going to 7.1.1.

Maybe I don't understand what you mean, but those all seem to be working just fine for me

Hello,
sorry for the noobness :)
i've been using cyano 13 on my nexus 6 for a while and i'm quite sure i never flashed anything about bootloader or radio :)
do i need to flash them to use cm14? is this something will wipe all my data? (i'd like to try with a dirty flash..)

Yes you need the new bootloader and radio for CM-14.1 to work properly.
It won't touch your data.

USB tethering seems to be broken in the 20161207 build. When you toggle it on, it immediately turns back off. I went back to 20161206 and it works again.

Tethering was broken by the 7.1.1 platform merge. Hopefully it'll be fixed with this:

Please test with the next nightly.

I did read the post.
Any specific reason why the kernels must be force encrypted? The earlier post didn't state why

The reason is security is more important than performance. In the case of encryption the gain by not encrypting is negligible.
There are better ways to improve performance of the device.
