As I cleaned the los installation, from nightly 0224. The gapps pack from 1# post is no longer available. Google play services keep crashing and I can't set up the phone. Then I downloaded a gms v15 manually. It stopped crashing and play store worked fine. But contacts couldn't sync anymore.
I wiped all then use open gapps nano, it still crashed, but after installing the gms apk manually, everything normal.

So no way to get 20180911 build again? I want it because u mentioned it as bug free....any way thanks for ur quick response
Awww ya OK um ya I was looking for a different build number but as far as I know I could not find it except from another alternative website. You'll have to search for it I guess on the web.Anyway I can't confirm weather bug free or not cuase I am using the Pixel xl. I just was read through the tread about sailfish from other posts. You'll have to read this thread fully to really find a good starting point.

How is performance and battery life on 16.0 versus 15.1 on these devices? If I'm choosing which to install on that basis?

Can i follow these instructions from stock 9.0?
When I installed LineageOS 15.1 I did install in place of stock 9.0. That was several months ago though.
I believe that there will be no more releases of LOS 15.1 for Pixel/Pixel XL so you need to be sure you want to use it. There will be no more security fixes etc. LOS 16.0 is now the official supported version.

Thanks for the reply, sir!
I'm looking for performance and stability, which do you prefer between 15.1 and 16?

Does anyone else have problems with the autofocus (on sailfish)? Around 2 out of 3 shots come out blurred for me. I never had any problems on 15.1.

Sorry, wrong thread.

Lineage will continue to support Oreo for a while, they don't stop support for older versions just because a new one is out, in fact, they usually support 2-3 cycles at a time IIRC. They have a very large team with lots of maintainers for various devices.

Both 15.1 and 16 have been working well for me.
But for security I want to keep getting the security fixes released with 16.

Yes you are partially right. The source code does get updates from Android security bulletins etc. But in most cases the official builds are done only for the most recent version. If you look at the LOS downloads for Pixel and Pixel XL there are builds for only 16 for the last month.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. If you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Wiki.



    Important Info
    Make sure you have the vendor, radio, & bootloader img's installed, from the stock oreo 8.1 OPM4.171019.021.P1 July 2018 factory image. More info below.

    Download Links
    marlin rom: https://download.lineageos.org/marlin
    marlin vendor, radio, & bootloader img's: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=278595
    marlin twrp: https://twrp.me/google/googlepixelxl.html

    sailfish rom: https://download.lineageos.org/sailfish
    sailfish vendor, radio, & bootloader img's: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=278596

    google apps (Optional): https://wiki.lineageos.org/gapps.html
    root su addon (Optional): https://download.lineageos.org/extras Note: Use arm64 zip. After installing the su addon, you can enable root in developer options.

    Instructions
    Initial Install
    • NOTE#1: Make sure you have the correct vendor, radio, & bootloader img's installed in BOTH slots before installing lineage. They can be extracted from the oreo 8.1 OPM4.171019.021.P1 July 2018 factory image or use the ones in the download section above that I already extracted for you. You can flash them using the following commands:
      fastboot flash --slot all vendor VendorFileName.img
      fastboot flash --slot all radio RadioFileName.img
      fastboot flash --slot all bootloader BootloaderFileName.img
    • NOTE#2: The official mindthegapps build that's linked in the wiki are very minimal (like opengapps pico), so i made my own mindthegapps build that is pretty much the same as opengapps nano. download link
    • NOTE#3: If you're a Project Fi or Sprint customer, you need some extra gapps, so use this one instead. download link
    • NOTE#4: If you want to update from my unofficial 15.1 build to official without wiping, you can follow the "How to dirty flash an official weekly over an unofficial build" steps here.
    1. boot into twrp and wipe data and system
    2. flash rom zip
    3. flash twrp zip
    4. in twrp main menu, select reboot then recovery (this will reboot you into the other slot)
    5. flash gapps zip (optional)
    6. flash su addon zip for root (optional)
    Reboot & enjoy.

    Updating
    If you've already done the initial install, then you can use the LineageOS Updater to install new builds. It's in settings->system->about phone->lineageos updates.
    It will give you a notification when a new build is available.



    Weather Provider Addons (Optional)
    For those that like to use the lineage cLock widget, here are some weather provider apk's you can use that i compiled.

    New build with January security patches. :good:
    That also means a new vendor img is needed from the January security update released by google 2 days ago. OPM1.171019.012
    The bootloader img is also new, so you should also flash it. The radio is the same as what was in last month's security update from google, so no need to flash it.
    You can extract them from the OPM1.171019.012 factory img on google's site, or use the one's here that I already extracted:
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=239134


    If coming for another rom, follow steps in the first post.


    If you're updating from my previous build:

    1. Reboot to recovery.
    Note: When you do that you will be in the slot in twrp that has your current lineageOS installed. When you flash a custom rom on the marlin, it goes to the other slot from which you're currently in, so you want to reboot into the other slot because you want to get into the habit of always doing the rom install while in the same slot. That way you don't get mixed up flashing things to wrong slot or booting into wrong slot. So, go to 'Reboot' then look at the "Current Slot" and select the slot button for the other slot. Then select the "Back" button and look at the "Current Slot" to confirm you're in the other slot. Now, we need to go into bootloader mode to flash the new bootloader img, so select "Bootloader".
    2. Flash the new bootloader img.
    Note: make sure you use the '--slot all' option so that you flash both bootloader slots. Like this:
    fastboot flash --slot all bootloader bootloader-marlin-8996-012001-1711091153.img
    3. Using the volume buttons select 'restart bootloader'. Or do the 'fastboot reboot-bootloader' command.
    4. Flash the new vendor img.
    Note: make sure you use the '--slot all' option so that you flash both vendor slots. Like this:
    fastboot flash --slot all vendor vendor-opm1.171019.012.img
    5. Using the volume buttons select 'recovery mode'.
    6. Now you can flash the new rom lineage-15.1-20180105-UNOFFICIAL-marlin.zip
    7. When that's finished, flash the twrp 3.2.0-0 zip.
    8. Then go to 'Reboot' and select 'Recovery'. This will reboot you into the other slot, where the new rom was installed.
    9. Since you flashed a new vendor img earlier, you will once again have that /vendor/overlay folder that you have to delete. So, mount the vendor partition and open the file manager and delete the /vendor/overlay folder.
    10. Flash the new updated gapps zip open_gapps-marlin-8.1-nano-20180105.zip
    11. When that's finished, flash the latest stable magisk zip (currently v15.2).
    12. You're done. Select 'reboot system'

    Major changes since last release:
    january security patches
    added advanced restart (the power menu setting still crashes, but advanced restart is working. you can enable in dev options.)
    added long press back to kill app
    fixed battery charging led notification
    enabled unlimited storage in google photos on full res pics
    fixed some (all?) sprint, verizon, and project fi issues
    LiveDisplay is now implemented and working properly
