No problem and sorry! Didn't mean to be rude! Just want to make sure that people know how easy it is to get this phone unlocked and install Lineage :)

Thanks for the correction. You might have saved me a bit of time 😊.
Which version of Lineage are you running and how is it compared to the stock rom?
Where did you find the instructions for unlocking? 😊

Hope it is ok that I'm asking all these questions 😊.

Which version of Lineage are you running and how is it compared to the stock rom?
I am running the latest 18.1 as I figure by the build dates of 18.0 and 17.1 that @Raghu varma only builds the latest lineage version.
I use it without play services, and installed the microg framework. I like it a lot so far.

I do also notice occasional screen INPUT freezes (you only loose touch input) as pointed out by @amarendramshr but wouldn't call them frequent. They can be easily overcome by pressing the power button and unlocking again via finger print. I can imagine that when you are playing games this would be annoying. But for me its fine. Also I don't have any random reboots as of yet.
@Raghu varma: is this freezing something you are aware of already or would you need a logcat for that?

A few minor things I noticed that you should be aware of before proceeding:
  • dual camera is not supported, so you can't use the "optical zoom" by switching to the second camera. I also tried sideloading the gcam but this also doesn't find the second cam and crashes if you try to point it towards cam ID 2 (ID0= back-cam, ID1=front-cam, ID2 would be the secondary zoom back-cam) so I guess it is not implemented in the rom
  • assigning different ringtones to the two simcards is not a feature lineageOS 18.1 seem to have implemented yet
  • The OP is wrong in a few points. I think Raghu made a copy paste mistake from one of the other roms he supports:
    • The lineageOS rom does NOT contain gapps (which is GREAT for me!). So you would have to flash those after the rom
    • I would always get a bootloop when following the instructions, until I downloded the vendor image as linked in the OP and followed the third guide for roms without vendor image from here (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/RaghuVarma331/changelogs/master/crossdevelopment/abcrins.txt). Then it worked.
    • Also (not concerning this rom in particular but the TWRP preparation in general) I couldn't find a twrp.zip to make TWRP permanent. But it is no problem to not flash it at all and just always use the fastboot command to boot TWRP for the two times you need it during rom installation.
    • make sure to also directly flash Magisk right after the gapps before you boot the system for the first time. This is important because after booting into system and configuring encryption, I could not decrypt in TWRP again. It just doesn't accept the password. (if anyone knows how to overcome this, I'd be glad for hints!)
You might have saved me a bit of time 😊.

I hope I saved you some more time with my remarks! :)

Not sure if I should provide a link here but I guess stating the name so you can find him is ok, as I have already read it a couple of times on the forum: the website is called techmesto and is run by a very helpful and friendly guy. I can really recommend his service.

However I should note that if you follow the download links of in the OP, that the rom dev also seems to offer unlocking service, so you could check if he can also do this service-bootloader-to-evade-downgrading-magic and this way support his development. Unfortunately I only noticed this when I was already unlocked.

Thanks a lot for taking your time. This means a lot for me :).

Anyone on lineage os 18.1 latest build can confirm, whether low mic volume in calls and video calls in fixed or still exist.
Also, is the overall performance smooth and can it be used as daily driver without issue?

Looking forward to replies.

Thank you in advance.

Other than what I described in my post above, I am super happy with this ROM and I am using it as my daily driver.

It is smooth.
I haven't had any complaint about conversation partners during phone calls.

However I cannot judge video calls as I don't use that.

LineageOS 18.1 is very smooth and faster than the official Android 10 ROM from NOKIA.

Unfortunately, NFC does not work, but it doesn't matter if you don't use it normally.

There is another issue.I have two SIM card in my NOKIA 7 Plus,both is working on VOLTE,I don't want to give up using VOLTE.
now the icon shows "SIM1 is HD Capable"and "SIM2 is HD Capable" from notifications,please remove it,Thank You!

HI,

Does Lineageos 18.1 supports island or shelter app because I'm trying to install both the app on lineageos 18.1 (N7P) from last 2 days but could succeed.

The same app was working on lineageos 18.0.

I have already installing niksgapps full, am I missing something.

Just installed this on my newly unlocked 7 plus. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this. Battery life is okay, Bluetooth works fine, and photo quality is good with a Gcam app. It's not super smooth all the time, but I've found that turning off animations in the Developer Settings has made it considerably smoother. Thanks to the developer for their hard work.

I found that the vendor zip is NOT required (and it will actually use it) and Gapps have to be installed separately.

    Quick question: If you want to stay up to date on security patches, do you have to flash every month or so to stay up to date? Or is there a auto-update function within LineageOS? :)

      Getting error like:

      Error applying update: 28(ErrorCode: kDownloadOperationExecuationError)

      while flashing the latest lineage version.

      Any help?
      First make sure your cable/ports are working properly and the file is not damaged. If those are OK, then you probably need to resize the S/V partitions.

      does the procedure requires me to downgrade my phone to Android 8?
      No. But the procedure will wipe your phone.

      About LineageOS


      LineageOS is a free and open-source operating system for set-top boxes, smartphones and tablet computers, based on the Android mobile platform. It is the successor to the custom ROM CyanogenMod, from which it was forked in December 2016 when Cyanogen Inc. announced it was discontinuing development and shut down the infrastructure behind the project. Since Cyanogen Inc. retained the rights to the Cyanogen name, the project rebranded its fork as LineageOS.

      LineageOS was officially launched on December 24, 2016, with the source code available on GitHub. Since that time, LineageOS development builds now cover more than 185 phone models with over 1.9 million active installs,having doubled its user base in the month February–March 2017 And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review.



      Installation procedure

      Note - Gapps already included & I don't recommend you people to flash any other custom kernels on this ROM untill Nokia release Q kernel sources. Because this ROM supports only stock kernel .

      without gapps

      Hi,

      Would it be possible to publish an image without the gapps?

      The reason I am using LineageOS is privacy and gapps kind of ruin that, thanks.
