Nobody wants to do boring work, and we're not trying to sell you a product ;)
Yeah but when somebody has a $700 phone and risks it's warranty for your product, you should at least let them know what they're getting into. It's not about selling the product,. it's about informing the users. I understand where you're coming from but, listing features should only take like 5 minutes of editing the original post, if that. By reading the original post,. the only thing that you tell me and the rest of the entire world about your rom is that it's based on the AOSP Android Open Sourdce Project and can be used without Google App. I'm sure your ROM has much more than that to offer.

I'm running LineageOS and while it's nice and I recommend it, having a list of the features by the developer would make it extremely helpful as a user to understand what I'm getting and also to help spread the word and help the rom keep its livelihood. If someone were to ask me what all of the benefits of the rom are, all I have is a post by the developer saying that nobody wants to do the boring work, I have nothing to give them or reference to.

You already made the rom, you should be excited to talk about it and list it's features. I would highly recommend to take a few minutes out of you day and list all of the features of the ROM. I along with all of your other users would greatly appreciate it.

This is an open source and community project. Why don't you go ahead and write the feature list?

Also, You're not risking warranty with a Google phone.

Sure I'll glady help and write the feature list. I just need someone to tell me what the features are as I genuinely do not know them. I didn't know that flashing a custom rom wouldn't void your warranty, thanks for letting me know. @aleasto That is a big relief and should also be noted in the OP to help encourage newcomers. Warranty or not you still risk the function of a $700 phone, you get what I'm saying. If anyone wants to help put a feature list together, please help by responding with some of the ROM's features. @aleasto is there anychance of getting a web installer like the Proton ROM has?

LineageOS Features
  • Google Apps: LineageOS offers the ability to be completely free of Google Apps if you choose to do so.
  • Custom Recovery: The LineageOS Recovery is a recovery environment that comes with the ROM, and it’s the most compatible with direct integration to the system. The official LineageOS updater works with it, and all subsequent updates after installing the ROM can be installed with it, too. It has all of the barebones features that you need to manage your installation and none of the additional features that you don’t.
  • LineageOS Trust: Trust is a centralized interface within LineageOS ROMs (located in Settings > Security and Privacy) and it’s home to all of LineageOS’s security features. You can get an overview of the status of core security features like Privacy Guard and more, as well as get explanations on how to make your device secure and your data private.
  • CPU Overclock: The CPU is overclocked to increase the phone's performance.
  • Trebuchet Launcher: The stock android launcher is replaced with the Trebuchet launcher which is a fork of the AOSP launcher, Launcher 3 with added features such as icon pack support.
  • Stock Apps: While Android as an operating system is open-source, many applications that you need for a complete smartphone experience aren’t. A lot of apps that were previously maintained by Google as a part of AOSP no longer receive updates, and the company replaced them on retail devices with Google-ified versions. This results in the LineageOS project having to update, or outright replace, many system applications that Google abandoned. Not every app that you get as a part of LineageOS that you may see here will be present, as Google apps packages may replace some of them. As we opted not to install Google apps for the purposes of this hands-on, though, this is the complete out-of-the-box experience that you get with LineageOS 19.
    • Audio FX App: The AudioFX app is essentially an equalizer built right into the system, with different audio profiles too. You can enable reverb, boost the bass, and change between different audio profiles to fit what you’re listening to. It’s the same AudioFX app that’s been present on LineageOS for years, so fans will recognize it immediately.
    • Calander App: The Calendar application in LineageOS 19 is the same as what was introduced in the previous iteration. LineageOS has forked the open-source Etar Calendar (which itself is based on AOSP Calendar) and added a few changes. It displays any calendars synced to your device using Android’s built-in CalDAV provider and looks pretty good.
    • Clock App: The Clock app is more or less exactly the same as what you’ll find on a Google Pixel smartphone, and for that matter, exactly the same as Google’s own Clock app, too. You can set alarms, timers, view the time, and just, in general, do all of the time-related things you’ve come to expect from your phone.
    • Jelly Launcher App: The LineageOS Jelly Browser is a classic favorite of many, as it’s been around for a long time at this point. It’s well designed with useful features and with privacy at the heart of it.
    • Recorder App: The recorder app will serve your basic audio recording needs.
  • Status Bar: The status bar can be heavily customized, with various clock/battery styles and an optional network traffic monitor.
  • Custom Button Actions: LineageOS 19 also has more options for your phone or tablet’s buttons than stock Android (and most OEM skins). If you keep the default three-button navigation bar, you can set custom actions for holding down or double-tapping the Home button and long-pressing the Recents button. There’s also an edge long swipe action that you can enable.
    As for physical buttons, the power button can be set to turn the flashlight on or off, and the volume rocker can answer calls or control music playback. You can also enable a short press of volume down and power to take a partial screenshot, which is better than taking a screenshot and cropping after. There are a lot of options that you won’t get pretty much anywhere else.
  • Volume Slider Notification: This is actually a change in LineageOS 19, but the volume slider now not only slides out from the right-hand side, but it also has an additional two panes that can be popped out to adjust alarm and notification sound, too. In contrast, Pixel devices have an overlay that comes up from the bottom when you want to modify more audio options. This is a lot cleaner and more out of the way.
  • Brand New Wallpapers: With LineageOS, you get a brand new line of wallpapers. from you to choose from.

Hello, thanks for this great ROM. Been running as daily for a few months now. I've come across two minor yet potentially related issues:
  1. HTML Input capture attribute does not behave properly on any browser. I've tried every version of the attribute (the spec has changed over the years) on the latest Firefox, Chrome and default browser. In all cases, a file picker is opened rather than an image capture UI.
  2. App deep links and standard URL links do not open in their respective apps when linked to from a Firefox PWA. The respective apps are configured to open links by default, however I'm seeing the links open in a browser webview. App deep links from other apps (such as JustWatch) open in their respective apps as expected. It's just an issue for Firefox and default browser PWAs. Chrome browser and PWA works fine also.
My other data point for both of these issues is a Pixel 3 running LOS 18.1, so I can't say whether these issues are specific to all 19.1 or just our Pixel 5 builds. On a Pixel 3 running LOS 18.1, both of these issues are not present and the features behave as expected. The browsers are the same version on both devices.

Any hints or tips of what I should look into further are appreciated! Thanks.

Good morning,

I have since 1 week an LG C1 TV with the miracast possibility. If I try to connect my phone, the TV recognize it and ask me for permission for the phone, which I granted.
On the phone I can pick my LG TV, but it stays in connection mode and after 2 min or so the connection breaks and miracast stopped.

Has anyone successfully connected via LOS 19 and miracast to a TV?

Edit: I have tested miracast with my Desktop PC which worked fine.
Edit2: I have created a logfile. Attatch files doesn't work. Please see the gist

The VoLTE enabler is an old attempt that never worked properly. It enable the service buttons that are greyed out when you dial *#*#4636#*#*, that's all it did.
When my Pixel 5 is on the Stock Android ROM, VoLTE and VoWifi works. On the LineageOS ROM the VoLTE works but the VoWifi does not activate. The toggle button is activated in the *#*#4636#*#* app but when I attempt to activate it in the Network settings, it attempts to activate but says something like, "service unavailable right now, please try again later"

I did the same, dirty flashed over the Google ROM, but have to reboot the recovery right after flash and do a data wipe to get LOS to boot. Maybe that's causing it, who knows. If I could get QPST to connect to my phone I could probably solve the VoWifi issue in Carrier settings xml.
I even tried to alter the build.prop file, but for some reason Total Commander cannot save the edits I made, claims not enough space even after I changed the properties of the file to read/write. When I copy the file to my desktop and alter it, then try to paste it back into the /system folder, all the text in the build.prop file is suddenly erased. Not sure what's causing that.
I may try your route to see if I can dirty flash LOS over Proton.

What's strange, I can pop in my TMobile SIM and all the bells and whistles work without a hitch. There must be some carrier config file causing this with AT&T.

Might get it.. 🤞

For anyone wondering about the esim... It works... Just use proton rom or the original sw for the phone first to download the esim... After that you can just flash lineage and under *#*#4636#*#* enable dsds and the esim should just work right away...

Oh and instead of gapps you can use this

Finally managed to get AT&T Wifi Calling to work. AT&T requires Google's Location Services, while TMobile does not. So I flashed Open Gapps Pico, then AT&T's wifi calling activation worked properly.
I even tried MicroG ROM, TMobil's VoWifi works, but not AT&T.

I am trying to install LineageOS to my new Pixel 5 and am stuck at sideloading any packages in the Lineage recovery. As soon as I boot into recovery, adb no longer recognizes my phone. I found the menu option to enable adb and that had no effect.
I get an error message
adb: sideload connection failed: no devices/emulators found
If I boot back into fastboot the phone is recognized by fastboot.
When in recovery adb devices returns nothing.

Update: I installed another ROM which does not require a recovery for that process and then booted to recovery and tried ADB again. Still no access. I then opened Device Manager on my computer and updated the Device driver's while connected to my phone in recovery and boom now ADB works in recovery.
Sometimes you just have to help yourself.

    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.
    • To use the eSIM you need to install GApps
    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.

    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).
    11
    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.
    11
    New build out
    Enable Adaptive Sound, Live Captions, Now Playing, Screen Attention pixel features.
    These all work without gapps, and all process data offline.

    Bluetooth HD Audio fixed in the next build
