Phew! I thought I was nuts but you are bananas.
JK.
Okay that saves me the hassle of formatting the internal storage and then giving it a shot
No way to install without bootloop. Global, EU, Chinese, russian/17.1 line age 18/1 lineage. using the latest official twrp, the latest non official twrp, wiping before, formatin before, wiping after, formating after.
Always the same. Bootloop.

Just a thought which gapps package are you flashing? Have you tried stock or full nikgapps?
I tried NickGapps, FlameGapps and no Gapps but it always bootloops.
And to further emphasize I am a flash-a-holic and flash everything the internet throws at me. Even GSI's and if you remember the Multi-Rom recovery you built like two years ago, I was rocking that also.
Needless to say I have a lot of experience in this stuff so can't really understand what is going on here.

Did you try the full build or stock build of the gapps package?
I believe the problem is to do with the hotword (screen off OK google) package that I included in the last build. I can build without it and see if that fixes things with you. I'll see if I can upload this tomorrow.

I think the stock or full gapps package may include different permissions which allows the phone to boot. I havent tested this though and I also havent clean flashed in a while.

Thanks man. You are the best.
BTW can it be something to do with encryption? As I'm not encrypted and the other dude was and he was able to boot it fine

This build boots fine without any GAPPS. Now trying with Gapps.
Great job Sir

Edit: Works with Gapps too. Used Flame Gapps Full
So it seems the new hotword .apk i bundled requires extra permissions which you only get when you flash a stock or full version of Gapps. Which is why it works for me as I flash Stock version of Nikgapps.

I'll see if I can fix it in the next build(s)

Can somebody tell what is a good replacement for the camera? Because the standard LOS Camera isn't the best choice for this hardware.
I don't use Google and the PlayStore, so only apps without Google are welcome.
