In which version are the monthly Google updates integrated? Background. I don't want to install an update every week. But only the Android security updates.

One does still not simple: QS pulling down area is still not working well if cutout display hidden or changed. But u make weekly updates.
Why is it so hard to fix a serious problem which is not existed before 2021 Juni? The kernel not changed, hardware not changed...
Now I spent months in miui 2.5 and it's far more worse than Lineage. But I had to stay on it bc nobody cares about this error (its not a bug).

Switch update search in the settings to "monthly". Mid of the month should fit.

Pls stop posting this nonsense everywhere on XDA! There is no problem! The only problem here sits in front of the device. 🙄 Cleanflash LOS 18.1 with this TWRP and everything will be fine. It seems that you belong to those clever people who still don't get it right with the two TWRP branches. And by the way - if there was a problem outside your own imagination with that TWRP 3.6 (which I use too) and LOS 18.1, you could easily flash back to 3.5.2.

I'm not rude, I'm helping you. But I'm just tired of people who are too lazy to read and uncapable to understand simple things.

i dont understand your behavior, i was searching for hours before i post this kind like question. You wrote down 8 lines and the 7 of them were no reason against me. And you are not helping me actually since im asking why TWRP 3.6.0.9-0 stucks on logo screen , and how can i enter to flash a new rom.Also not understanding is not a crime. Disrespectful answer, you can simply ignore instead of being so noisy and toxic. You dont know me and i dont know you, stay on your eggs pls.

Hi to all, I would need your advice / help

after installing lineage 18 on xiaom mi8 i saw that i have big problems with the battery.
it lasts much, much less than the original rom. in a very particular way when I use the navigator with gps. the battery in that case lasts a few hours while before the duration was much greater.
is there anything i can do to restore some battery life?

or if I decide to go back to the original rom now that I have unlocked, I have noticed that GooglePay does not accept unlocked devices. how can i get it back to working?
thank you

I'm having troubles again and need your help.
As so often before, I did an update.
Now the system only boots into recovery. TWRP 3.6.0
I downloaded the latest version of LOS and opengapps and installed it in recovery.

How do I get out of there now?

If anyone wants to try an early lineage-19 build for dipper:
Please note it definitely has bugs. I havent fully tested everything so please report back with your findings.
This build does not have gapss included. I may do further builds with gapps included. Please dont install this build expecting it to be stable! (and no a downgrade to lineage-18.1 is not possible without a wipe)

Great! But I'll stick with 18.1 atm on my daily driver. 😉

Hi infrag, good to see that there will be a LOS 19 rom for dipper. But I would like to ask you if you please could open a new thread for this version. It is often quite confusing when postings for different versions get mixed up in one thread.

    Not a waste of time! But if you are able to make normal phone calls without your ear starting to bleed, you don't have the same problem that I (and others) have. I think the mic was always very sensitive, I had people complaining until I changed my phone case. But this time it's different, it's absolutely unbearable!
    Indeed, it must be a different thing, there's no need to move a finger against the mic, any sort of sound seems to be able to trigger this and the noise is unbearable and headache inducing. Calling someone is impossible without an external mic.
    Big thanks @infrag for spending time and effort on this. Any way we can buy you a beer? :)

    Yes so we've narrowed it down to a kernel problem. However I havent got enough testers to find out exactly which commit yet causes the problem.

    The mic problem here since months. (3 months maybe im not sure). Its discussed other roms topics as well. Not discovered and mentioned today. The problem is basically: when you in a call, you can hear your own voice. You can hear the sound capturing by your own phone's mic. And for me its there in every phone call. Not just sometimes. (no problem in speaker mode btw.)

    I just switched to PE12 and the problem exist there too.

    So can someone report back with GPS info whether or not they can pick up Beidou satellites etc or only GPS and Glonass type ones? If not I can also apply to GPS fix to 18.1 as I've needed for 19.1
    For me, i can connect to all types

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, 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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    so the newest build 04/11/2019 uses Xiaomi Q blobs.
    Therefore it has some bugs:
    I havent got bluetooth audio working yet. Bluetooth calls seem to work fine though.
    Sound: Speaker works if you make a phone call first and switch to speaker during the call. After that everything else starts working.
    Edit: fixed. - GPS all satellites should show up now.
    Android Auto fixes probably havent been added yet to lineage but when anything shows up I'll add it.

    The reason this build took so long to be released is that Q radio blobs kept causing a reboot when data was used and switched to low power mode. I believe I have fixed this.

    Edit: Uploaded the correct build now. Also added in gps fix

    Also fyi I'd hoped to have anther build up by now but since lineage has changed to 17.1 branches instead of 17.0 my build system is a bit of a mess. Waiting for all the repos to be updated to 17.1 before releasing anything. Hopefully it wont be too long...

    18/12/2019 finally a working q build with q blobs and working audio.
    havent tested it a lot so any bugs let me know. There will be a v2 of the audio fix/change. This fix was just to make it work. :)

    new build in OP.
    For android auto users unless I say otherwise I have not fixed your problem yet. :|
