6. (Optionally): If you want to install any add-ons, click Advanced, then Reboot to Recovery, then when your device reboots, click Apply Update, then Apply from ADB, then adb sideload filename.zip those packages in sequence.I was stuck, but thanks to your message I was finally able to install LOS and OpenGapps.
In my case the installation of OpenGapps failed due to a lack of space when installing these versions:
It worked with:
Note that in the first case I didn't reboot before trying to install OpenGapps (as required according to the wiki: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/redfin/install).
I did look at the Wiki page. What's not included is the portion on how to pass SafetyNet.Did you check the LOS wiki? All instructions are very clear. i dont use a Pixel5 but a S5klte, a Pixel2 and a Pixel3, and i use only the LOS wiki for any work on these phones.
I personally do not recommend YT as a source for a ROM flash. Everything you need is in the wiki and for further questions you can use this forum.

Hi could you tell me how to get EfsTools working with LOS18.1? I'm always getting Critical Error. Timeout..Hi, thanks for your work on redfin! I've been trying various builds of Lineage till the 4th August build and they had a common issue of not being able to load a mbn file via EfsTools. The changes simply refused to write and they used to error out.
However, to my surprise, the 25th August build was finally able to load my carrier's mbn file allowing me to gain access to 5G along with VoLTE/VoWifi so thanks once again for whatever changes made!
A query I had; is there any plan to add exFAT support to the ROM? I vaguely remember official Lineage not supporting it previously but one of my other devices with official does support it (zippo) hence my confusion.
In my job i try to avoid giving ETA's since decades now.
NOO! Don't lock the Bootloader if you are running a custom rom. You will end in a bootloop. Relock Bootloader on Pixel devices only if you are on a stock Rom.Thanks.
In the installation instructions the first thing written in red is that you should be on the latest version of Android 11 for LAOS 18.1, so a downgrade A12 -> A11 seems to be mandatory ^^
did it and everything worked fine on the first try
One last question:
After unlocking the bootloader and installing LAOS, can I re-lock it again (since it's an official ROM version)?
With unofficial ROMs this led either to bootloops or that e.g. Google Pay no longer worked
I think you had no chance to update to the lastest stock A11, so in worst case your phone was on a patchlevel as of last year when the Pixel5 comes out. The procedure in general is to update to the latest level of the stock firmware (A11 in this case) and then flash the actual A11 based LOS which is 18.1. It is not recommended to upgrade to A12 and then flash LOS18.1. If you are on A12 you have 2 options:I just unboxed my new Pixel 5 and installed Lineage OS 18.1. But I didnt update from Android 11 to Android 12. So am I expected to have any driver issues or sth. else? I remember on some devices they say update to newest stock software and then install Lineage as for some modem / framework software......
