Hello,
I've recently purchased this device and I requested to unlock boot-loader.It stills in process. It will unlock next week.
I am going to flash LOS when unlocking process is finished.

My firmware version is 12.5.2.0(RJUTRXM). Can I flash LOS recovery and do adb sideload without any issue with this firmware? Because I don't have the V12.5.5.0 yet.
up to 12.5.x.x is good to go, personally i prefer the lineage's method than twrp... (more clean to me)
you can follow the official tutorial
< https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/vayu/install >
i have been using it since mi a1, mi a2

Hi.

I installed lineagos 18.1 and have been very impressed.

The recovery was swapped to TWRP and it's rooted with Magisk.

No updates have been applied yet. I'm confused about if update will break the root.

Is the magisk root affected by LOS 18.1 update??

hello, excuse me, did you root it or the rom is prerooted?
Thanks for responding. I followed vayu instructions and ended up with all working great except no root

I couldn't do root with LOS recovery, so then followed instruction to swap the LOS recovery to TWRP. That all works, and installed magisk with it for root which also works fine.

No GAPPS installed except a patch to get GCAM working

Being a noob, I'm trying not to brick it in an update

that's nice, i don't know if you can brick it if you update lineage (a dirty flash) i always preach and performe clean flash to avoid unnecesary bugs (which i learn it throught time) and this device is my only one, so thanks for the info.

You can root with LOS recovery, I did it personally but LOS recovery does not support OTA decryption thus the survival script will not run. Therefore, in the end you still have to use TWRP or OrangeFox. You still however have to make sure decryption is enabled in those recovery settings.

Hi.
We can create a full backup on TWRP to overcome any potential brick issues by the looks of it. Titanium backup app doesn't seem to have stayed up to date to handle split APKs, plus some other issues

Both TWRP and OrangeFox are BROKEN for backup/restore on Poco X3 PRO.
Do NOT trust them for that.

The best alternatives are the apps:
Migrate
Swift Backup
OAndBackupX
App Manager

so the video recording issue is still not fixed? I'm very sad now
I'm on 18.1-20211015-NIGHTLY-vayu (with lineage recovery, open gapps pico, magisk root) and video recording does not work in stock camera.
With gcam it works, so that's a workaround for now.


Anyone else have an issue where the phone reports "charging slowly" even though charging works fine?
The phone charged from 10% to 100% in ~70 minutes, and all along the lock screen said charging slowly.

The GPS location data is very patchy and unreliable... The location data is not passing through correctly to browsers and OsmAnd

There's an issue. The location icon appears then vanishes. It shows occasionally when called by app. Sometimes it stays on and the apps work, but mostly it doesn't function. Tried disabled apps too, makes no difference

Not sure why??

Other than that it's great especially the GCAM

Suggestion to maintainer @SebaUbuntu .
Please retain the previous media controls which were changed in the 22nd October build. The new one may be optimised for bigger displays like tablets and in annoying on this phone as it takes up lots of space.

After the update there is a lot of space wasted and notifications are cluttered.

All those are backup apps.

Migrate is free and closed source, available on Play Store, official support thread here on XDA.

Swift Backup is free/paid, closed source, a Google account is mandatory, available on Play Store, official thread on XDA.

OAndBackupX and App Manager are free and open source, available on F-Droid and on Github.

All them need root to backup / restore and do local backups.
Migrate and Swift Backup have more features, do more complete backups.
All helps a lot for both ROM switching and routine backups.

    in my case i use the official lineage method with the 12.5.5 firmware. but lineage is not a google play certificated device rom... but arrow os is. hope you make it!
    i will make a permanent safetynet fix very soon (in a few days) ... stay tuned guys !

    Hi All,

    The Permanent SafetyNet Fix is Here. (Only for LineageOS 18.1)

    Enjoy !

    Hello, everyone! I bought POCO X3 Pro recently, so now I am choosing a good ROM for it.
    My priorities are security, privacy and stability.
    From my experience on other smartphones, I love the concept of projects like LineageOS and MicroG, but I'm not really familiar with other popular ROM's here.
    I want to ask a few questions about official version of LineageOS. Maybe some users here can help me find answers to them.
    1. Are everything more or less stable these days? Is every function of our device works correctly, or some of them not yet? What exactly are not work or work bad/not really good at the moment? I don't need NFC support and SafetyNet certification features at all, so I'm fine with that if these two are not working.
    2. How about camera? I read here in this topic that Google Camera should work fine on Lineage, but how good is it exactly? What modes and lenses works, what not? How many megapixels we can get with GCam? Maybe, there are also some good MIUI camera ports or OpenCamera versions, that I should know about?
    3. Are answers on the questions above fit also for LineageOS for MicroG project? I understand, that you can not guarantee it at all, but should it be the same at least in theory on same versions of Lineage build?
    Great thanks for any answers and help in advance! Just want to know few details before actually flashing the ROM =)
    Call recording is not enabled.

    The stock camera app is partially broken but on gcam with custom configs, there are 3 camera modules so I assume all the lenses are working. I don't really know much about this camera stuffs.

    I don't use microg but I assume it should work.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11.0 (R), 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.

    Thanks for finally releasing LineageOS, but you devs are 3 months too late... ArrowOS has inadvertently stolen my heart in your absence, lol.
