You are a life saver man! I revived my old Moto G3 thanks to you! I will be waiting for the next updates, LineageOS 17.1 does not convince me much and your ROM is just great.

I had the same problem as you but I solved it much easier:

In TWRP go to advanced -> terminal, then create /cache/recovery with

mkdir /cache/recovery

And it's done, now it will let you install the ROM or updates without any problem

I'm only an occasional visitor, but I thought there were later posts to this forum... including info on @Eric_Lev builds....
but I cannot see them ... have posts been deleted?
Also, I can now longer find these 14.1 security builds... have they moved? or has @Eric_Lev stopped making them?

thanks

I have tried to install the last two updates, lineage-14.1-20210829 and lineage-14.1-20210818, but I get this error message:

Updater process ended with ERROR: 7
Error installing zip file '/external_sd/lineage-14.1-20210829-UNOFFICIAL-osprey.zip'

I had been updating the rom without any problem until now.

Should I do a clean install? or does anyone know how to fix it?

----------------------------------

UPDATE:

Let me tell you about my recent experience with this device.

I thought that I couldn't update the rom because my version of TWRP was so out of date. So I decided to install the latest version (twrp-3.5.2_9-0) and I was able to update the rom but it got me a lot of bugs.

So I decided to do a clean installation but still had a lot of bugs. So I installed previous versions of the rom, including the first one I installed, but it still had a lot of bugs (basically forced close in many processes).

So I decided to go back to the TWRP I had before (twrp-3.4.0-0) and the bugs disappeared and I was able to use the rom without problems, but no matter what I do I cannot get youtube working.

The gapps that I have been installed are open_gapps-arm-7.1-pico-xxxxxxxx and I have done all the possible combinations: old gapps with the most recent rom (lineage-14.1-20210829-UNOFFICIAL-osprey), the most recent gapps with the oldest rom I have (lineage-14.1-20201221-UNOFFICIAL-osprey), the oldest rom I have with old gapps and the most recent rom with the most recent gapps, but youtube still doesn't work

As I said before, it doesn't matter what combination I do, nor what version of YouTube I have installed, the application closes. As a possible solution I have deleted chache and data of youtube but the problem continues. The funny thing is that all the applications that I have, including other google apps (chrome, gmail, maps) work without problem.

So once again, does anyone know how to fix the problem? Honestly, although they are better alternatives, I don't want to use YT Vanced or NewPipe and I don't know what else to do.

Alright, I powered on my Moto G3 (it's no longer my daily driver phone) to see how I can help you with your YouTube app not loading problem.

Upon connecting it to my WiFi network, I performed the following experiments:

ROM: Stock, Rooted, Android version 6

Experiment #1: Run the YouTube app, the version that's on the device, without updating it. (few years obsolete):

Result: The very old YouTube app loaded without crashing, but right away it displayed a banner with the following message: "A new version of YouTube is available. Install it now from Google Play". There was no way to just acknowledge that message to continue to use the old version of YouTube, just one option: Install Now, which takes you to the Google Play store to update the app.

Experiment #2: I went ahead and updated the YouTube app through the Playstore.

Results: Once the update completed, I clicked on "Open" right from the Google Playstore, the app took like 5 seconds displaying the YouTube "Red Play" logo, then it asked me to pick one of my YouTube channel names to start the YouTube app under, it displayed the list (all of my four channels) for me to pick one. I picked one, then the YouTube app finished starting successfully.

Picking a YouTube video to play:

I searched for "HD Demo" then pressed the green magnifying glass. No problems so far...

I picked the second video on the search results titled "Samsung HD Demo - Colour Of China 1080P". There were three seconds of ad, click I clicked "Skipped Ad", then the video started playing just fine. I was still holding the phone in portrait mode.

Horizontal/Full-screen test of the same video playing:

I rotated the phone horizontally as the video was playing, nothing happened, it remained in portrait mode, and I did have screen rotation turned on in the notification bar. I manually tapped on the lower right corner full screen (square) symbol and then the video went full screen, taking the whole entire screen.

So far, no problems.

I rotated the phone in portrait mode, and the video auto-scaled itself back to portrait orientation. I flipped the phone in horizontal and the video this time went to full screen by itself, without me having to manually enter it in full screen, I once again rotated the phone in portrait mode, and the video exited full screen once again, just fine.

Power off/Restart the phone test, to see if the YouTube app will load just fine, or if I will be able to reproduce the problem that you are experiencing on your Moto G3:

After the phone restarted, I started the YouTube app it started just fine, I played another video and it played just fine, with no crashes.

I was unable to reproduce on my Moto G3 the YouTube crashing issue you are experiencing on your Moto G3.

Here's some helpful information that *MIGHT* be of help for you:

Phone: Moto G3
Android Version: 6.0 (Stock)
Android security patch level: December 1, 2015
Kernel-Version: 3.10.49-g88eb8b3
System version: 24.11.25.osprey_retla_na.retla.en.01.sprint

Rooted? Yes
Root method: SuperSU
SuperSU version: 2.78-SR1
TWRP version: 3.0.2-r5

Info: I have a total of three Moto G3 with me. All of them have their bootloader unlocked, two of them are rooted, one of them was left not rooted.

Additional info:

Moto G3 #1: The test that I just explained

Moto G3 #2: This one is running Android 7.1.1
ROM: LineageOS 14.1-20170316-NIGHTLY-osprey
LineageOS API level: Guava (7)
Baseband version: M8916_2020632.44.03.21.54R
Build date: Thu Mar 16 06:28:07 PDT 2017
Build number
lineage_osprey-userdebug 7.1.1 NOF27B
71s2961158

Test: I ran the same exact test. I didn't have the YouTube app installed previously on this phone, so I opened up the Google Playstore and I installed it freshly.

Result: When I opened the YouTube app, it opened just fine, and when I was getting ready to tap on the search magnifying glass to type the name of a test youtube video, I got a popup that said "Update Google Play services. YouTube won't run unless you update Google Play services". I tap on "update".

After Google Play Services finished updating, I tried to start the YouTube app again, and this time the app started without any further complaints.

I proceeded to play a youtube video, it played just fine. I was able to screen rotate it to full screen just fine. no issues.

So, here, on my second Moto G3 running LineageOS 14.1-20170316-NIGHTLY-osprey I had no issues running YouTube.

You said that you have run the following LineageOS versions: "lineage-14.1-20210829 and lineage-14.1-20210818".

You said that you are running TWRP version twrp-3.4.0-0 and that LineageOS was installed using that version of TWRP. You have indicated that you have used TWRP version twrp-3.5.2_9-0 before and that this particular more recent version of TWRP did not play ball with the installation of LineageOS, that's why you downgraded to TWRP version 3.4.0-0 where the installation of that rom was finally successful, albeit, with the YouTube problem you are currently having.

My take based on all the available data and my tests results ran on both: rooted and unrooted stocks and rooted LineageOS 14.1-20170316-NIGHTLY-osprey and recovery: TWRP version: 3.0.2-r5

Explanation #1: The TWRP version that you are running, version 3.4.0-0 *MAY* still be causing issues that may not be noticeable during the installation of the ROM phase, since probably no errors occurred, but something still happened that's affecting the YouTube app from loading correctly. *POSSIBLY* further downgrading your TWRP version down to my version that I am running on my test device: TWRP 3.0.2-r5 MIGHT solve the issue. So this is what I want you to do:

1. Download TWRP 3.0.2-r5 and flash that using fastboot to your Moto G3 If you are not able to find it anywhere, I MIGHT be able to supply you a copy, if I still have it on my hard drive, and I probably have it saved somewhere being a data packrat that I am.

2. After flashing this particular version of TWRP and performing a full backup of all of your important data, including important apps that you use (with titanium backup and restore) with all of its data, and Tripple checking that you are not about to lose any important unsaved information.

On TWRP, click on WIPE, then enter Advanced Wipe, check the following:
[ ] Dalvik / ART Cache
[ ] System
[ ] Data
* Only if you think you may not have enough space for the installation of the rom, then also check [ ] Internal Storage: Warning: This will erase all of your personal data off your phone's internal storage, make sure you have that info backup first ESPECIALLY the LineageOS Rom .zip that you are about to flash to your phone. Better yet, copy it over to a Micro SD card and later on flash the rom from the SD card, freeing up all that space from the already very limited 4GB internal storage.
[ ] Cache

Then swipe on the bottom (green bar) where it says "Swipe to Wipe" to wipe all those partitions you selected.

Right after the wipe is finished, go back and click on "Install" and go ahead, flash your (LineageOS) rom.

Once the rom is flashed, restart the phone, finish setting up your phone, and see if this time, the YouTube app works.

IF it still does not work, I would need you to make sure that you reproduce the same exact setup I have here: running the same exact version of LineageOS revision that I am currently running on my test Moto G3 phone: LineageOS 14.1-20170316-NIGHTLY-osprey

Download that particular EXACT version. If you are not able to source it, I MIGHT be able to provide a copy to you, provided that its still somewhere on my hard drive.

Repeat the TWRP advanced wiping and flashing procedure as before, but this time when it comes time to flash the rom, flash my version: LineageOS 14.1-20170316-NIGHTLY-osprey

Once flashing finishes, restart the phone, once the phone restart, finish setting it up, and go ahead, download and install the YouTube app and let me know if this time YouTube isn't crashing.

Oh, I forgot to mention the gapps version I am running:
The gapps that was installed on this particular setup that I used to perform these tests is: open_gapps-arm-7.1-micro-20170317.zip

Good news: since I had to hunt for these files since there was no way of knowing what gapps version I installed without looking for the source file, I was not only able to find a copy of that particular gapps on my computer but also a copy of the same exact revision of LineageOS rom I am running on this particular device.

For your reference, the original file names of both of these files are:
ROM: lineage-14.1-20170316-nightly-osprey-signed.zip file size: 355,277 KB
open_gapps-arm-7.1-micro-20170317.zip file size: 165,557 KB
TWRP: twrp-osprey-3.0.2-r5.img file size: 7,538 KB

These are the two files you would need to hunt in order to reproduce the same exact setup of mines, WITH HOPEFULLY the same exact result of me: of YouTube NOT crashing.

This is the experiment I would like you to run in order to rule out any potential issues with your device, issues that I am pretty sure could be corrected, but I first need to figure out if it's your much recent version of TWRP that you have at fault? If it's the much recent version of gapps that you flashed at fault? Is it the much recent revision of LineageOS that you flashed that has a really bad bug affecting the way the YouTube app runs? Any of the combinations of the above? By running the same exact setup as me, you are increasing the possibility of having the same exact results as me, and if this is not the case, then we can proceed with more experimentations, until, hopefully, a solution is found that would allow you to run the YouTube app just fine.

* Let me know if you would like me to provide for you those three files listed above, and if so, I will zip them and upload them somewhere on a file-sharing site for you to download later on.

Thanks for your suggestions @FNetV1 , I used this weekend for testing and long story short I can already use youtube but I have no idea how it was fixed.

But I will tell you about everything I did in case someone in the future is going through a similar situation to mine.

I followed FNetV1's indication and downgraded my TWRP version to 3.0.2-r5, then I installed the oldest rom I have (lineage-14.1-20201221) with the oldest gapps I have (open_gapps-arm-7.1-pico-20210112) but youtube was not working.

So with that same version of TWRP I installed the most recent rom available (lineage-14.1-20210829) with the most recent gapps and still youtube did not work.

So I installed the latest unofficial version that Squid2 developed for this device (twrp-osprey-3.2.3-r1) and then installed the oldest rom I have with the oldest gapps I have. The result was the same, youtube was not working.

I thought the problem was the gapps, so I installed the latest rom available with the most recent gapps but now with the Nano package. But the result was the same, youtube was not working.

So I gave up and for the last time I reinstalled the latest rom avaible with the most recent gapps, again with the pico package and as expected youtube was not working.

The funny thing is after I finished setting up my phone, I restarted it, reinstalled YouTube and voilà, I can now use YouTube without any problem.

As I said at the beginning, I have no idea how the problem was fixed, especially because I also rebooted my phone on several occasions with the previous tests.

So if anyone has an idea what I did wrong from the beginning or how the problem was fixed, feel free to comment.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1.2 (Nougat), 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. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    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.

    Installation
    Requires Unlocked Bootloader & a custom recovery

    1. Place ROM & Gapps in your virtual SD
    2. Reboot in Bootloader Mode
    3. Go to "Recovery" (Vol +/Vol -) and confirm (power)
    4. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
    5. Wipe Dalvik cache
    6. Install the ROM zip
    7. DO NOT REBOOT
    8. Install the Gapps zip (optional)
    9. Reboot

    N.B. Official LineageOS builds are unrooted, if you want this feature back flash su (arm) (available here) then enable root access from Settings -> Developer options.
    Unroot is even easier, just flash "su removal" package available at the previous linked page.

    Does it now support VoLTe? Because the aosp ROM still doesn't
    Did you really subscribe just to ask this? And you aren't the only one I see...

    How many times do you need to repeat that question? Think about that, I'm closing the thread for some days

    It does seem that the question comes mainly from clowns members with very few posts (often just 1) and from a specific region.

    Not much we can do apart from deleting as they appear. I would request that other members who enjoy the normal interaction/collaboration in this thread avoid responding to the VOLTE and ETA Spam-ish posts and let me just delete them. I know the temptation to lambast them is high!!! You can probably guess what I would LIKE to say to them...

    I'm releasing an unofficial LineageOS build which should improve GPS thanks to working Glonass. It should also have fixed the data toggling issue, let me know please. Additionally it includes updated sdcardfs, wlan drivers and fixes many security holes.
    I didn't actually want to release this because it's not yet clear if we will provide upgrading paths from CM14.1 (read dirty flash) or not but people already built it, so it doesn't matter anymore. Also I really wanted to know if the data issue is finally fixed since I wasn't able to reproduce it many times here.
    I'm going to rename the thread once official LineageOS builds starts. Hopefully it's clearer for those who still can't understand that we are just rebranding. Same people, same code but different name and infrastructures.
