Hello,
I've recently purchased this device and I requested to unlock boot-loader.It stills in process. It will unlock next week.
I am going to flash LOS when unlocking process is finished.

My firmware version is 12.5.2.0(RJUTRXM). Can I flash LOS recovery and do adb sideload without any issue with this firmware? Because I don't have the V12.5.5.0 yet.
up to 12.5.x.x is good to go, personally i prefer the lineage's method than twrp... (more clean to me)
you can follow the official tutorial

i have been using it since mi a1, mi a2

Hi.

I installed lineagos 18.1 and have been very impressed.

The recovery was swapped to TWRP and it's rooted with Magisk.

No updates have been applied yet. I'm confused about if update will break the root.

Is the magisk root affected by LOS 18.1 update??

hello, excuse me, did you root it or the rom is prerooted?
Thanks for responding. I followed vayu instructions and ended up with all working great except no root

I couldn't do root with LOS recovery, so then followed instruction to swap the LOS recovery to TWRP. That all works, and installed magisk with it for root which also works fine.

No GAPPS installed except a patch to get GCAM working

Being a noob, I'm trying not to brick it in an update

that's nice, i don't know if you can brick it if you update lineage (a dirty flash) i always preach and performe clean flash to avoid unnecesary bugs (which i learn it throught time) and this device is my only one, so thanks for the info.

You can root with LOS recovery, I did it personally but LOS recovery does not support OTA decryption thus the survival script will not run. Therefore, in the end you still have to use TWRP or OrangeFox. You still however have to make sure decryption is enabled in those recovery settings.

Hi.
We can create a full backup on TWRP to overcome any potential brick issues by the looks of it. Titanium backup app doesn't seem to have stayed up to date to handle split APKs, plus some other issues

Both TWRP and OrangeFox are BROKEN for backup/restore on Poco X3 PRO.
Do NOT trust them for that.

The best alternatives are the apps:
Migrate
Swift Backup
OAndBackupX
App Manager

so the video recording issue is still not fixed? I'm very sad now
I'm on 18.1-20211015-NIGHTLY-vayu (with lineage recovery, open gapps pico, magisk root) and video recording does not work in stock camera.
With gcam it works, so that's a workaround for now.


Anyone else have an issue where the phone reports "charging slowly" even though charging works fine?
The phone charged from 10% to 100% in ~70 minutes, and all along the lock screen said charging slowly.

The GPS location data is very patchy and unreliable... The location data is not passing through correctly to browsers and OsmAnd

There's an issue. The location icon appears then vanishes. It shows occasionally when called by app. Sometimes it stays on and the apps work, but mostly it doesn't function. Tried disabled apps too, makes no difference

Not sure why??

Other than that it's great especially the GCAM

Suggestion to maintainer @SebaUbuntu .
Please retain the previous media controls which were changed in the 22nd October build. The new one may be optimised for bigger displays like tablets and in annoying on this phone as it takes up lots of space.

After the update there is a lot of space wasted and notifications are cluttered.

All those are backup apps.

Migrate is free and closed source, available on Play Store, official support thread here on XDA.

Swift Backup is free/paid, closed source, a Google account is mandatory, available on Play Store, official thread on XDA.

OAndBackupX and App Manager are free and open source, available on F-Droid and on Github.

All them need root to backup / restore and do local backups.
Migrate and Swift Backup have more features, do more complete backups.
All helps a lot for both ROM switching and routine backups.

    Exactly! For me, that is a serious issue, as anyone standing near me can hear everything being spoken on the other side. And call volume is quite loud, even on lowest setting.

    How come ArrowOS 11 got that fixed, but not LineageOS? It's been reported quite a while back...
    I will repost the full audio fix again here, (posted months ago ... i don't remember wich page to link !)

    Here are the features :

    - fix "Earpiece" volume
    - fix voice over handset (Telegram, Duo & Signal)
    - Audio recording : use HQ mic (no more muffled sound / loud & crystal clear)
    - Video recording : use high audio bitrate
    - Speakers : use true 24-bit stereo playback
    - Bluetooth : aptX™ HD [up to 48KHz/24-bit]
    - SoundFX : use them corretcly with AudioFX app (effects were inverted when switched ON !)
    - audio daemons : lower CPU usage in background

    I stronlgy recommend to use my TWRP version wich allows flashing MODS "corretcly" ... LOS recovery is not recommended !

    If you are interested to my full LineageOS 18.1 MOD for [vayu/bhima], go here ... but read the features.txt before !
    2
    Then use my TWRP version as it allows flashing MOD "properly" and manage everything in /data. It has been already mentionned Up. I did that 1 billion times with no issue.

    OrangeFox is may be bugged now ... who knows, i don't use it !

    If you feel that flashing is too hard for you, take your time to learn from google step by step everything you need before !

    Edit :
    the errors you got are because you didn't read the features.txt
    You must reboot to TWRP again after flashing your nightly build, then you can flash the whole MOD ... it's mentionned.

    Next time read the instructions !

    (y)
    Well I'm flashing devices a long time now, clearly, that doesn't make me a professional.

    I appreciate the solution you propose but its something that I couldn't get to work and I'm not prepared to spend more time on. Just to add, I did actually read your instructions in the text file, this is how I knew there were 3 folders to be deleted after flashing your mod. As Tomo123 noted, I'm sure somebody will find your solution helpful. Thanks for sharing.
    So.. latest build did the job well. Why not try Fork Lineage 19 ? Please ..
    I just noticed this is sebaubuntu telegram

    Thx. So not format Data at the end ? You are on Official 18.1 ? Or Fork Los 19 ?

    Can you post your batterystats later on ? I'm hesitating between Los and Crdroid.

    You should format Data after flashing ROM before booting for first time.

    Had the devil up my ass for the last few hours, so I decided to flash ArrowOS 11 and see if the same problem exists in there.

    Nope, ArrowOS has no issues with high call volume, even on the lowest setting. In fact, on the lowest setting you can barely hear the call.

    I am staying on ArrowOS until this is solved. Sad thing is that I really, REALLY wanted to use LineageOS, but having NO PRIVACY during calls is no-go for me...

    Really hoping dev @SebaUbuntu looks into the issue.

    Tried this mod from gringo80 on latest lineageos 18.1 build and latest orange fox recovery. It did install but not without errors.. Also I could not delete the folders advised due to a similar error. This then caused my phone to bootloop. Well, phone loaded in and worked for about 15 seconds and then it froze up.

    I reflashed latest lineage nightly and it seems to have fixed everything. Probably won't try this mod again! I should mention too, I am using no gravity kernel 2.2.1 so maybe that caused issues with this mod? Not sure.

    Was thinking to try arrowos 12.1 or crdroid 12.1 to resolve small sound bug but I don't think its worth the PITA of backing up everything and starting fresh. Imagine lineageos 19.1 will appear soon

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11.0 (R), 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.

    Thanks for finally releasing LineageOS, but you devs are 3 months too late... ArrowOS has inadvertently stolen my heart in your absence, lol.
