I just updated the Top Post and provided links to download the lastest UNOFFICIAL build (from today) with May 2021 security bulletins included
Installed it. Looks great. Thanks a lot!

Sorry, didn't mean to post this twice. I can't figure out how to delete it.

I'm not positive, but it seems to me I've seen several posts saying that WiFi calling for the Nexus 6 (shamu) will stop working soon, regardless of what ROM you use
Yes, at the end of this month but only for T-Mobile (as far as I'm aware). Since Google Fi uses T-Mobile I assume WiFi calling will no longer be supported.

I don't know if it is related, but on Android 11, the Google Camera app is broken. However the camera works fine in other apps. Also, the old 3.2.045 version of gcam works.
I don't use google camera. Just the stock one that comes with lineage. It works in the 03/21 update but after that no go. Dirty flash. Only wiped /system, kept data. I'm wondering if it needs clean install. Not sure. I haven't tried to debug since my daily driver atm, need camera.

Both cameras work just fine for me, and I'm on the latest 15.1, from 05/12

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of android, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock android for your device.

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

    Important Info
    DON'T USE TWRP 3.0.2-0 OR OLDER WITH LINEAGEOS. IT DOES NOT WORK CORRECTLY. USE VERSION 3.2.1.0 HERE

    Current lineage 15.1 shamu nightlies are based on the N6F27M October 2017 update from google.
    So you should be using the radio and bootloader img from that update.
    If you already have those you don't need to flash them again.
    They can be extracted from the factory image on google's site here.
    Or you can use the ones linked below that I already extracted:

    radio-shamu-d4.01-9625-05.45+fsg-9625-02.117.img
    bootloader-shamu-moto-apq8084-72.04.img

    IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VERIZON USERS: Google released a separate October 2017 security update (NGI77B) just for verizon users that has a different radio. So you'll want to flash it. I repeat, THIS RADIO IS JUST FOR VERIZON USERS.

    radio-shamu-d4.01-9625-05.51+fsg-9625-02.118.img

    You can use fastboot to flash the bootloader and radio.

    More information and installation instructions can be found on the LineageOS wiki here.

    Download Links
    LineageOS OFFICIAL: https://download.lineageos.org/shamu
    As you will see it is no longer available and there will be no new OFFICIAL builds as shamu has been promoted to LineageOS 18.1.
    Seems an archive of the official 15.1 builds is here. To check official signature you can follow this guide

    LineageOS UNOFFICIAL: lineage-15.1-20220301-UNOFFICIAL-shamu.zip
    Includes the now (no longer official from now on as per comments here) non official February 2022 security bulletins.
    Here is its md5sum.

    Google apps: MindTheGapps or OpenGAPPS <= nano


    HEADS UP:
    • When you initially install LineageOS, be sure you flash the gapps package with your ROM. If you boot your ROM, then go back and try to flash gapps after, you're gonna have a bad time.
    • If you are migrating from an OFFICIAL build to the UNOFFICIAL build you have 2 options:
      1. Wipe data and do a clean install of UNOFFICIAL build
      2. Dirty flash thanks to an intermediate MIGRATION build
        First flash the MIGRATION build (lineage-15.1-20200501-MIGRATION-shamu.zip md5sum), boot to it and then flash the UNOFFICIAL build and boot to it.

    SU addon zip: Addon Install zip / Addon Removal zip
    NOTE: LineageOS does not come with root, so this is now provided for those that want it.
    The install zip is a one time flash, like gapps.
    Meaning, it persists when updating to a new LineageOS nightly.

    Just a small heads up for those of you who wait for LineageOS 16.0.
    It seems like I have fixed the encryption issue. :D
    So there's one blocker less on our road to 16.0.
    37
    Just a quick heads up:

    I'll be away the next 3 weeks and will only have limited internet access.
    So no need to worry that I have abandoned our beloved shamu.

    Shamu for Elektroschmok getting ready for shipping :)

    Sent from my taimen using XDA Labs

    PS
    Shipped, should reach Elektro by Saturday or Monday.

    Anyway, just a quick one, is there any chance that the prevent accidental wake up feature could be added to this rom? I know the LG G3 lineage 15.1 rom supports it, so assume it's already built in lineage os. It uses the proximity sensor to prevent the phone from waking if it is covered.

    I find with double tap to wake and also lift to check phone features on, the phone likes to open in my pocket and start calling people at random .

    The sensor can be enabled with the screen off. Whenever I want to pick up my phone without having "lift to wake" kick in I'll do so with my thumb covering the sensor... Works every time. :) However, DTTW is a different story, proximity will prevent it occasionally, but often won't (it actually doesn't work more than it does). This is not a LOS thing or even an Oreo thing, it has always been like this.

    Bottom line, the proximity sensor does work with the screen off, but not reliably enough to prevent bum dialing when DTTW is set.

    Good news! I managed to fix our proximity check on wake.
    The main problem was that our touchscreen driver was sending a KEY_POWER instead of KEY_WAKEUP event. That is the equivalent of a power key press.
    Of course the proximity sensor shouldn't block a power key press. :D

    I fixed it with this commit:
    https://review.lineageos.org/#/c/LineageOS/android_kernel_moto_shamu/+/216440/

    and enabled the feature with this commit:
    https://review.lineageos.org/#/c/LineageOS/android_device_moto_shamu/+/216439/

    I need some testing, but I hope I can get it in for today's build.
