LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, 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. LineageOS does still include various proprietary hardware-specific code.

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.

Informations :
  • This ROM uses source built kernel, kernel modules, boot kernel modules (vendor_boot) and vendor image.
  • This ROM bundles the latest firmware so you don't have to worry about updating firmware beforehand.
  • To use the eSIM you need to install GApps
Instructions :
  • Download the latest boot.img and rom zip
  • Boot to bootloader
  • fastboot flash boot boot.img
  • Boot to recovery
  • Format data
  • Flash LineageOS zip
  • Optionally flash any addons:
    • Advanced > Reboot to recovery
    • Flash the addons
  • Reboot
See https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/redfin/install for more detailed instructions​

Downloads :
Reporting Bugs
  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/* (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
  • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved.

Known Issues
  • On the first boot, you might be presented the message "SIM Manager has crashed". You can safely ignore it.

Great work @aleasto!

Can't wait to try this Rom, I was waiting for it.

Just a quick question: maybe I'm just a noob, but how can I install the zip without a dedicated recovery? I mean, I'm stuck at point 4 in your instructions.

Thanks a lot!
You can't.
Where exactly are you stuck? To reboot into recovery simply select "Recovery Mode" from the bootloader screen.
The previous steps installed Lineage Recovery.

Hey everyone, I wanna give an update on my experience with this Rom!

First of all: great job @aleasto!
This Lineage is definitely smoother than stock rom. Seriously, my Pixel 5 feels like a true flagship now, finally the 765 is working like a charm.

_

Now, some little features I do really enjoy:

- percentage only in the status bar (no battery icon needed)
- you can hide the navigation bar (the one at the bottom of the screen) but use the phone as if it was visible
- FINALLY no google assistant swipe-up from the bottom of the screen!

There are also some little bugs, nothing serious:

- with google camera, changing from portrait mode to standard mode (and viceversa) usually slows down a little bit. Maybe it's just my gcam version.
- vocal messages: recording vocal audio messages often does not work. The recording is muted, I haven't figure out how am I able to fix it, but sometimes I am able to do it.

_

A quick guide on how to install this ROM (for lineage os newbies like me):
  1. Unlock the bootloader (here you can read how)
  2. Download all the files from the first post and put them in the "platform tools" folder
  3. Put the Pixel 5 in fastboot mode and connect it to the computer
  4. Open a prompt window in the platform tools folder
  5. Digit these commands:
    - fastboot flash boot boot.img
    - fastboot flash vendor_boot vendor_boot.img
    - fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
  6. Now you have to reboot into the recovery from the fastboot menu, just use the volume buttons to search the recovery option and select it with the power button.
  7. You will enter the Lineage Recovery, then select "apply update" -> "apply from ADB"
  8. Go back to your cmd window on your computer and write:
    "ADB sideload xxxxxxxxx.zip" where the "x part" is the name of the ROM zip file (remember to put .zip at the end of the command)
  9. Just wait until the end of the installation (around 5-8 minutes) and then reboot the phone from Lineage OS recovery.
  10. Enjoy!

Personally I wasn't able to install magisk correctly, if anyone got it working just let me know!

Again, thanks Ale for the awesome rom, can't wait to see it becoming official!

there was a problem with the microphone, they didn't hear me, but earlier on the proton firmware it was like that too, the solution: to flash another core. Here I also decided to replace the kernel

That's a pity. I came from Galaxy S8 to Pixel 5 because I LineageOS on S8 had the same problem and I felt that switching to Pixel 5 I would be less likely to encounter problems with basic phone functions. The progress so far is incredible at such an early stage so hopefully this microphone issue can be ironed out eventually.

    We got assigned a faultly build slave, it has now been removed from the roster and the build rescheduled.

    The build will notably include:
    Fix for screen off loop with no lockscreen
    Reverse wireless charging / Wireless PowerShare functionality (available as a QuickSettings toggle only for now)
    4
    after you have installed the official build: Upcoming updates will be downloaded and installed directly on the device? what about gapps, do i still need a pc to install via adb?
    You just use Updater app: Settings > System > Updater.
    Gapps will persist.

    installed the new OTA update (20210407) and everything works well, thank you.

    Just one thing, the update process took about one hour (the download itself was fast) is this normal ?
    Yes A/B updates are engineered to run quietly in the background.
    You can force priority mode for faster updates in the updater app preferences

    Good evening. I haven't used Lineage before, so I have a couple of questions.
    1. Do I need to lock the bootloader back after the firmware update? I don't really need root, I'm more worried about the stability of the firmware - so that if necessary, the bootloop can be flashed.
    2. Are there any updates over OTA, or only through the ADB command? Is the data erased after this update?
    3. Can I install a Google camera from the Google store? Are there any problems with Gapps?
    Thanks
    Hello kowfeed,
    1. There is no need for relocking the bootloader. I am using linage since very beginning and I can tell that is stable for daily usage. You have a Pixel, so if anything gets wrong simply flash factory image from google.
    But if you follow instructions on lineage for redfin everything will be fine
    2. Because Lineage OS 18.1 hits official you will receive ota´s from Lineage server as weekly builds. Your Data will stay as is like Stock OTA Update
    3. I used open Gapps pico which has google camera baked into it.

    Correct me if I am wrong
    Cheers!

    New build out
    • Feb 2021 security patch
    • Update modem firmware from the T-Mobile factory images to enable 5G Standalone.
      Google only did this for T-Mobile images (RQ1C.210205.006), but it doesn't seem to negatively affect non T-Mobile users, thus I'm including it in the generic build (RQ1A.210205.004 based).

    New build out
    The final checkups before official rolls out.
    We've also managed to remove the need for flashing vendor_boot.img so now the install instructions are back in line with other pixels.
    10
    New build out
    Enable Adaptive Sound, Live Captions, Now Playing, Screen Attention pixel features.
    These all work without gapps, and all process data offline.

    Source code will be uploaded to LineageOS repos soon.
