Use the latest Open GApps "nano".
Are you sure, that it's a GApps problem?

Hi @PeterCxy.

I've compiled lineageos 18.1 up to the latest commit 318535: TvSettings: use dark color for Wifi SUW (at the time of writing this) as you can see here: https://download.lineageos.org/sunfish/changes/.

No custom modification, no google apps. Plain repo sync and compile.

Unfortunately patching and flashing boot.img with Magisk 23.0 (or latest canary version 23014) result in a bootloop.

Is this a known issue in the LOS community?

On the other hand, I've tried manually checking out all the commits since the latest nightly lineage-18.1-20211104-nightly with a very simple script, but compilation of ninja crashed complaining of a missing dependecy. Do you have experience on rollback willing to kindly share?

Regards!

I'm using latest LineageOS, stock Google camera and stock Google photos. Long pressing the shutter to take a video, and motion photos, are not working. The bottom right gallary section flashes as if a recording has been made, but none appears.

Is anyone else facing the same issue?

Hi @All,

could anyone please do me a huge favor?
I would need the stock boot.img (please see attachment, extraced from lineage-18.1-20211104-nightly-sunfish-signed.zip) patched with the latest magisk canry (23014).
I would do it by myself, but unfortunately I'm unable to do so at the moment.

Thank you in advance
kafisc

4a LineageOS 18.1 Update 2021-11-18 - Security Bump

Using the built-in Updater, I OTA-updated Pixel 4a (Google Ed) LineageOS 18.1 sunfish build 2021-10-14 + lineage-18.1-20211014-recovery-sunfish to build 2021-11-18. I have no GApps, no custom-kernel, and Magisk is not installed. Everything went smoothly.

There are a bunch of changes as you can see here: https://download.lineageos.org/sunfish/changes/

After the reboot, I went to Settings->About phone->"Android version". The "Android security update" now shows "November 5, 2021".
The Vendor security patch level (just below) is now "October 1, 2021".
The Build number at the bottom is "RQ3A.211001.001 10036888".
This appears to be the last Vendor security patch for Android 11. The 1105 firmware is for Android 12.

See Android Security Bulletin - November 2021 for details about the security fixes.

I rebooted to recovery to verify that it was also updated. It now shows version "20211118" and active slot 'b'.

Thank you to the Lineage Team, PeterCxy & cdesai for their work.

You know, I always come to this thread to have a look at this kind of report, before I do the upgrade. Much appreciated, thanks!

Hey everyone, I finally flashed this beauty of a ROM to my 4a and it reminds me of the good old days. Everything seems to be working well and performing better than stock, however I am having one compromising issue. I use strictly eSIM (no physical SIM card at all) with a data-only plan, and I cannot seem to get any data connectivity with LOS. It was working on stock Android 12, but not after flashing to this ROM.
It sometimes can see available mobile networks, and the phone will sometimes connect to them, but I still have no mobile data of any kind.

I am using the latest ROM (18.1-20211202-nightly) as well as latest Nik-GAPPS core (NikGapps-core-arm64-11-20210130-signed).
Any help would be very much appreciated as I am now currently only able to have any use of my phone while on WiFi.
Thank you all!

Long-pressing the shutter button for a short video does not work at all. Why not? It's been broken for months and there aren't any suggestions on how to fix it.

Yes, this is a sim manager. Now I removed the update and esim was activated. I have use mindthegapps.
That is why the esim setting is activated after a new installation of the gapps package - the sim manager simply does not have time to update)
Sorry mate, I gave you not the easiest solution)
It was broken again after PlayStore updated the SIM-Manager to D.2.1.407613264, downgrading to D.2.0.395335607 fixed it again. I'm wondering what they are doing. :)

    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 our Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

    Notes
    • Before the initial installation, please make sure your Pixel 4a has already been updated to Android 11 official firmware so that the recovery can function correctly.
    • This ROM comes with latest firmware bundled, so after the initial flash you don't need to worry about updating firmware manually.
    • This ROM comes with source-built kernel and modules
    • eSIM functions without GAPPS, but to manage (add / erase) eSIMs you will need to have GAPPS installed
    Installation
    • Update your Pixel 4a to official Android 11
    • 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
    Updating
    • Boot to recovery
    • Flash LineageOS zip
    • Flash the same addons you had previously installed:
      • Advanced > Reboot to recovery
      • Flash the addons
    • Reboot
    Downloads

    Official: https://download.lineageos.org/sunfish

    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.

    There is no hope, the quality of the asocial media is as bad as with stock ROM.

    In a poor man's homage to @curiousrom, I have used his postings as a template for mine.
    They have been very helpful with my daily driver (S5) for a loooong time. :geek:

    please tell us what method worked for you

    please tell us what method worked for you!
    1. extract the boot from LOS payload.bin
    2. install Magisk 22 by patching the extracted boot image
    3. hide the magisk from: google play store, play services, gpay, clear data for all these apps.
    4. install magisk module safetynet-fix-v1.1.1.zip
    5. reboot
