I flashed the 18/08 build over 14/07 build and it's still on 14/07. Am I doing the flashing right? Please help me.

I faced a similar problem too, posted it on Nokia 7 plus subreddit, and a helpful redditor named (u/shubham412302) helped me out. Link to thread.

Here's how I did it
How to flash an updated build over current build (via ADB sideload):
=========================
[NOTE] I had installed this TWRP on my phone beforehand.

Have the updated build .zip, gapps .zip, and TWRP img file ready your on your PC (put them in the platform-tools folder alongside adb.exe and other files)

On your phone with current build:
1. Remove encryption by removing PIN (if you've set any, if you don't, skip to 2)
2. Enable Developer Options and toggle on ADB debugging
3. Connect phone to PC. (on phone, trust your computer if prompted)
4. On PC, make sure you can see your connected device in adb devices
5. Perform adb reboot recovery command
6. Your phone should reboot to TWRP
7. Tap Reboot
8. Look at the partition you're in. If it's on slot B, switch to slot A. If on slot A, switch to slot B
9. After switching the slot, choose reboot to System.
10. Your phone might then boot to LOS recovery instead. (my case)
11. Take a look at the partition indicator on the LOS recovery, it should indicate to the slot you're switching to.
11. Press the Back button at the corner, go to Settings, Enable ADB
12. Go back to main menu. choose Apply update
13. In my case I chose Install zip via ADB (ADB sideload).
14. On PC, perform
adb sideload <name of zip file>.zip e.g. adb sideload lineage-18.1-20210816-UNOFFICIAL-Onyx.zip
15. Wait for it to transfer and install the update, be careful not to disconnect the phone cable.
16. After the update, do not reboot to system yet, reboot to bootloader and perform
fastboot boot twrp.img to go to TWRP
17. On TWRP, go to Reboot and you should see that you're on the partition slot that you are on before as in Step 8.
18. Go back to main menu, proceed to install the gapps.zip.
19. After flashed gapps, Reboot to System
20. You should boot to the updated build.


Hope this helps. If there's some wrong steps, or extra steps that's needed, please quote and reply and I'll update this.

While on TWRP, connect your phone to PC, and try flashing the ROM using ADB sideload from your PC.

So far it's running good.... here are some issues that I'm experiencing so far.

- Ambient Display not working, no Ambient Display settings in Display>Lock screen as suggested by the search bar in Settings. Ambient Display does work, it's just missing that "lift up phone to see notifications".

- Some apps that usually couldn't utilize fingerprint scan to log in feature, not sure whether it's Android 11-only bug, or ROM bug. Works on stock Android 10.

- Duplicate ringtones in Pixel Sounds.

- FM Radio app? Wish it worked but I don't remember N7P having FM Radio feature 😂.
It is not an android 11 only bug i have seen oneplus devices running in android 11,there apps utilise fingerprint scan.Only in this custom rom apps doesn't show biometrics authentication.I have used it in stock rom and worked perfectly.I hope developer fixes this issue in the upcoming update.

Iam glad to know that you are using my work..

Unfortunately I don't own any of the nokia phones except Nokia 6.1 plus.

So whatever development for Nokia 7 plus is just based on my experience and with the help of testers. most importantly Android 11 support is end from my side.

Iam tired towards fixing bugs and as well as busy with my regular schedule.


Note - the bug which you mentioned towards biometric is already fixed just make sure to flash gapps & magisk & pass safety net.

Ok, the main issue I found on this version was the battery drain. Even in standby mode, the battery was draining way quickly. On full usage, I got Screen on time of around 2-3 hours, where I used to get 6-7 hours on-screen on time on my stock ROM.

Because of this battery issue I moved to my stock ROM.

That you very much for bringing 11 to Nokia 7plus @ RagHu Varma been using as daily only issues I've found so far is touch is sometimes unresponsive till locking and unlocking again and network switching is sometimes slow. Also Google maps sometimes struggles to get a GPS lock.
But really love your work haven't noticed any battery drain on my end loving the media controls etc that 11 brings.
 
Regarding battery drain: this happens because certain activities peg all the active CPU cores to the highest frequency (2208 MHz for the big cores, 1843 MHz for the LITTLE cores) until reboot. I have noticed it happening after using the Camera app, or using certain in-app cameras of other apps, for example.
This bug has been present on LineageOS 18.1 at least since the first builds I tried in early April 2021, perhaps even in earlier ones. It is not present on Android 10-based custom ROMs (e.g. Aosip Derpfest 10).

    Ok and hey to you all.
    At first I´m searching my english words... I try.

    I`m owner of a Nokia 7+, till now it has Android Stock 10.0, Security Patch from 03.2021.
    I maybe whant to tryout to Unlock my Phone and to flash Lineagos OS Android 11.
    But I´m undecided...
    I dont want Admin rights, because "Problems" with Banking Apps and so on.
    And I think, after flashing the new Rom, Wiping Cache and Data,
    maybe a "Regulation Rule"(?) I start after flashing a "new" Phone? Am I right???
    In the Startpost I have seen, there is needet, after Unlock Bootloader and flashing the new Rom, that I have to flash "Gapps"?
    In later posts I had read, Google Apps is integratet. Right?
    And at least, what is about Security Patshes? Has Lineagos such an Update Mode for that integratet?
    Upps one last Post... For Unlock Bootloader I have to use a link for Telegram?
    TWRP I also is a nice to have...

    So, I wish you all a nice Weekend, have a great Day. Mark.
    Hi Mark,

    LineageOS does not comes with Google apps. You have to flash Google apps package (gapps). For this ROM you should use the one that's recommended that is the NikGapps (linked in the first post).

    Update Mode or OTA update is not working for me. I was on the previous July build, and when the August build uploaded and announced, the updater didn't prompt any new update notification and when refreshed, nothing happens. I had to manually download the new updated build, go to TWRP, swap the partition, flash the update AND gapps. New updates usually comes with security patches.

    However, bear in mind that this ROM is unofficial, meaning that it is maintained by individual dev and not by LineageOS' team, so any bugfixes and updates are not as regular as an official ROM and it's up to the dev's discretion.

    Cheers.

    I also stucked within a bootloop, but without seeing the linage logo, but maybe this would help:
    It was totally important to do following steps:
    In TWRP: Hit the button "Reboot" an check that SlotA is selected
    Install the LineageOS ROM Zip
    Hit the "Reboot" Button on TWRP main screen again and select SlotB (VERY important)
    after reboot into TWRP again wipe as in manual and
    install GAPPS (into SlotB!!!).
    Reboot.
    I also have to use the repair tool: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...okia-repartition-tool-drg-2020-11-21.4193039/
    I also installed the vendor.zip (maybe not necessary for you)

    Tried reinstalling only Lineage again and sure enough the gcam (?) app in there crashes the moment I click on it. Tried the gcam at the end of the thread you suggested but no such luck. Cannot even load the XML cos it crashes so fast. Tried to look for alternative camera apps and got Open Camera, works fine enough...

    Noob question: should I lock the bootloader for any reason, other than someone being able to install anything on the phone?
    Glad to hear, that open camera works ( as i thought it would/should be in my first reply)
    No, do not lock the bootloader, otherwise you have to get another "slot" and waiting time, because maybe you are going to install an update or other ROM later.

    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.

    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.
