Hi there,
everything works fine with this version.
Concerning Magisk i have the problem that i can't update it. I must use the provided version from the telegram group (MagiskR.zip). Why? i can't use 21.0 (21000) or the latest 21005 from canary - it ends up with booting into fastboot mode. I thought from 21.0 Android 11 is supported?

For the time being, only that Magisk version works (MagiskR.zip). Just stick to it and don't update.

1 - Turn your phone into fastboot mode (run adb reboot bootloader or shutdown the phone and turn it on again while pressing Power + Vol- keys)

  • By doing this procedure you will have LineageOS 18 system installed only on slot A and with Stock ROM hardware encryption enabled!
  • Noticed that you didn't preformed any wipe! This was intentional. By doing this, not only, you'll keep stock hardware encryption, but as well, you don't need to flash dtbo.img
  • If your device fails to boot, you should just start all over again! Trust me, it's easier than trying other flashing methods.
  • You can now install a different Recovery if you like, for example, SHRP Recvoery. Simply go to TWRP and flash SHRP installer zip.
  • You can, also, install a different Kernel. Check the Telegram support group, there are other kernels compatible with this ROM (I'm using No. 192 OSS Batt version, for instance).
  • All files mentioned on this post can be found on the Telegram support group (including latest ROM build and MagiskR version)


Cheers!

Thank you mate for the procedure!! Could you please post the link of this Kernel that you are using? Thanks again!! :)

i'm experiencing a bug that's quite annoying when using gesture based navigation, my "home button" stays in the screen blocking acess for some elements behind it, it's like a leftover from the ui that requires me to "move the button" somewhere else by opening a portrait app to redraw the layout just to make it disappear of my fullscreen app, i've flashed an android 9 rom before installing LOS18 (think that's my problem)

additional info: i'm using CPL as my homescreen launcher, this bug is only experienced in the launcher home screen and mobile legends, maybe it's happening in another apps but i'm dumb and can't memorize

System crashes randomly, i get a restart randomly but other than that no bugs noted. Also while playing a game if i drag down notifications, the notification bar stays on and does not go away

Hey guys, with FireHound I can't install the official Magisk v21 because otherwise the phone bootloops into Fastboot, does anybody knows why? Also with this ROM happens the same? Do I have to flash a custom Magisk?

    Step by step install procedure for LOS18

    1 - Turn your phone into fastboot mode (run adb reboot bootloader or shutdown the phone and turn it on again while pressing Power + Vol- keys)

    2 - On fastboot mode set a as the active slot by running the command:
    Code:
    fastboot set_active a

    3 - Now, flash latest STOCK FASTBOOT ROM using flash_all.bat (or flash_all.sh if you're using Linux)

    4 - Wait for the installation to finish and, after seeing the welcome screen, go to fastboot mode again

    5 - Now run these commands:
    Code:
    fastboot set_active b
    Code:
    fastboot erase boot
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot twrp-3.3.1-17-laurel_sprout_Android_10_mauronofrio.img
    Code:
    fastboot reboot
    (keep pressing Vol+ key to force the phone into recovery mode)

    6 - We're on TWRP Recovery using slot B. Do this:
    Install twrp-3.3.1-17-laurel_sprout-Installer-mauronofrio.zip
    Reboot to Recovery
    Format Data with "yes"
    Install lineage ROM zip
    Install twrp-3.3.1-17-laurel_sprout-Installer-mauronofrio.zip (yes, again...)
    Reboot to Recovery​

    7 - Now we're on TWRP Recovery using slot A. Do this:
    Install NikGApps Core version. (This is optional! The ROM works fine without any GApps but if you want them, use CORE version!)
    Install Magisk (This is also optional! The ROM works fine without it but if you want it, get the MagiskR zip you'll find on the telegram support group!)
    Reboot to fastboot and run:
    Code:
    fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
    Code:
    fastboot reboot
    Your device will now reboot to System and you may enjoy LineageOS 18!


    NOTES:

    • By doing this procedure you will have LineageOS 18 system installed only on slot A!
    • If your device fails to boot, you should just start all over again! Trust me, it's easier than trying other flashing methods.
    • You can now install a different Recovery if you like, for example, SHRP Recovery. Simply go to TWRP and flash SHRP installer zip.

    LineageOS 18.0 based on Android 11.0

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, 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.
