Search This thread


Nov 23, 2008
Thank you very much for your comments Spaceoid and PislickB3. For possible future issues with that I'll save the hints PislickB3 gave in his or her comment though in this case it turned out to be caused purely by a bug in the app I was using.

@PislickB3 Unfortunately I can't help with that apart from that browsers should be able to use Widewine DRM and possibly also Kodi (at least it does on Windows and Linux).

    About LineageOS
    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9.x (Pie),
    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 Gerrit Code Review.

    Important Information
    1. This ROM has nothing related to ODM images! So you don't need to ask/install anything like that, just follow the instructions.
    2. This ROM will never work fully with newer versions of Google Camera (GCam)!
    3. The device trees (which were used to build this ROM) will not be published until they are in WIP state or I consider them ready for public release.

    The new build is available!

    It was decided to release another final build.
    The main reason for this was to solve an issue with the fingerprint scanner, when it could become unavailable after a while.
    As a bonus, this build also includes July security patches.
