I can't install gapps, help!

Only pico gapps can be installed, if you still unable to install pico gapps
create a .txt file named gapps-config.txt with the following contents:
Code:
Exclude

GoogleTTS

and copy that file to the root of your /sdcard, after that install pico gapps.

Recommended gapps-config for opengapps nano (with faceunlock support):
Code:
Exclude

GoogleTTS

Upgrading from 14.1? Read this!

Android 8.1 is noticably bigger than previous version and directly flashing 15.1 over 14.1
is only possible when you got no gapps or pico gapps installed. If you used for example nano gapps
the correct steps of upgrading would be:

- Boot into Recovery
- Wipe system and cache
- Flash LineageOS zip
- Flash Gapps Pico
- Reboot

FIRST to comment at this legendary thread! Thanks to the developers who initially made unofficial build, changed it to official, and opted to maintain this old device!
By the way, will the build be posted on the LinageOS official website soon? I still can't see it...

Hm, automatic LiveDisplay doesn't seem to be working for me, I'm fairly sure it did on unofficial builds. I'll have to check back on this.

Almost Berlin :)
I did a clean flash today with the first official LOS15.1 including pico gapps and magisk 16.0 and everything went without a glitch.
The only issue I have is installing Adaway (Fdroid installed just fine): Adaway is greyed out in the Fdroid app whereas I could install it on my Nexus 6.
What is the trick to be able to install Adaway? :confused:

I get an FC when I try to open settings, system, buttons...

Log attached
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FUKefen_oyVxjBQCOuS1lvGLHZ1H-G_s/view?usp=drivesdk

Edit: I do use magisk, so I totally understand when you choose to ignore this...

Edit2: just checked and it also FC's without magisk being present, just couldn't take a log as Matlog needs root and I'm not near a computer, I however didn't clean flash, I updated as suggested by OP (wipe all but internal storage & data)

Edit3: from my observations, when changing overlays in settings, display, advanced the buttons page starts to appear for a second and then crashes - I assume it's an overlay issue, as seen so many times by substratum... Even though the log complains about lineage parts right before the fatal exception but anyway I'm terrible at reading logs..

Have a problem now with Sberbank Online app - it now detects this ROM as modified or rooted (didnt install su addon) and works in restricted mode. With previous builds of 14.1 (inc. the last one) it works normally like with stock rom.

Upd: I've send them an e-mail asking to add this rom in the whitelist.

Also, now phones wi-fi can't detect my 5Ghz network for some reason. Didnt change any settings on my router since 14.1 builds.

    Just wait for today's build. I was able to free some megabytes and gapps pico installs fine again and even some megabytes are free for future updates.

    Does anyone have a problem adding new wifi hotspots that are hidden ? I have a hidden and a regular hotspot from the same router with the encryption same settings (AES, WPA2, 2.4GHz and 5GHz), but this firmware isn't able to find the hidden one. I previously had NitrogenOS 7.1 installed and there was no problem.

    If anyone still cares, this should be fixed in upcoming nightly.

    Hi, first of all, I want to thank the many developers that make such a great ROM possible for mako! I'm having difficulties when using the CallRecording feature that was (re-)introduced in the dialer since a few releases. Tried the 30.10. and the 6.11. release. Enabled call recording via the Xposed XCallRecordingSettings Module.
    CallRecodring is then available (and legal in Austria) in the dialer. Also the record audio file is written. But the file only contains my own voice and not the voice of my call partner. Has anyone made the same discovery?

    Thats why call recording is disabled for this device, because it doesn't work properly.

    Because some devices are no longer maintained by LOS Team (and Milaq for Mako), I built several unofficial LineageOS-based ROM (LOS 14.1 and 15.1).
    I followed the instructions on the official link (https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/) without adding anything more.
    For the buildings, I added (if necessary):
    <project name="TheMuppets/proprietary_vendor_XXXX" path="vendor/XXXX" remote="github" revision="cm-14.1 or los-15.1" />
    at the bottom of ~/android/lineage/.repo/local_manifests/roomservice.xml .... before </manifest>

    Note my unofficial builds are not signed (but SELinux status is enforcing) and require a clean flash if you come from the official one.

    You can use Migrate app (Migrate - custom ROM migration tool - Google play) for the migration:
