Has anyone successfully flashed a custom kernel on this ROM? Anyway anyone can dump payload and pull vb meta file so we can turn of verify and such please?
Thought I saw somewhere it said not to use a custom one. Can't find it now so may have been looking at something else.

Edit: Never mind that was for another ROM not this one.

LineageOS 20.0 for the Pixel 7 Pro (cheetah) and Pixel 7 (panther).

Known issues:
  • NOTE: This is an early-stage build, and may not be the most stable. It works fine for me as a daily driver on a Pixel 7 (panther), however.
  • The status bar is mis-aligned to the left by a few pixels, but this does not cause any usability issues, fortunately.
  • Dual eSIM doesn't work (yet), but stock is probably affected too until the feature drop
  • You tell me.
Install Instructions:

  1. Be sure you're on the latest stock 13 build and have an unlocked bootloader. You may also be able to flash from GrapheneOS, CalyxOS, or another ROM.
  2. Go into fastboot mode (turn off phone and then Power + Volume down)
  3. Make sure you have the adb/fastboot tools
  4. Run fastboot flash --slot all boot boot.img
  5. Run fastboot flash --slot all init_boot init_boot.img
  6. Run fastboot flash --slot all vendor_boot vendor_boot.img
  7. Run fastboot flash --slot all vendor_kernel_boot vendor_kernel_boot.img
  8. Boot into recovery
  9. Press Factory Reset and confirm
  10. Go to Apply Update -> Apply from ADB
  11. Run adb sideload LOS_BUILD (Replace LOS_BUILD with your LOS ZIP file)
  12. To add GApps, go to Advanced -> Reboot to Recovery -> Apply Update -> Apply from ADB
  13. Run adb sideload GAPPS_BUILD (Replace GAPPS_BUILD with your GApps ZIP file, repeat this step if you want Magisk)
  14. Press Reboot System Now

Update Instructions:

  1. Download the latest ZIP
  2. Reboot to recovery
  3. Flash the latest ZIP
  4. Reboot to recovery
  5. If you previously installed it, flash GApps and Magisk
  6. Reboot to system

Passing SafetyNet/Play Integrity:

For some reason, this ROM only needs the Displax SafetyNet Fix and Shamiko (or DenyList) on top of Magisk in order to pass SafetyNet/Play Integrity, which is a nice bonus. As of 11/17, I was able to use GPay with this ROM if you use Magisk, Shamiko, and Displax SafetyNet Fix.

I still maintain this build for the fun of it, and for anyone who wants it. I use it mainly since the Pixel stock ROM is a bit bloated for me.

Yes, the Pixel stock ROM is still excellent, even better than many other custom ROMs IMHO, and definitely when compared to something "stock" like OnePlus OxygenOS <=11 (yes, even pre-ColorOS OOS was trash IMHO) or Motorola's stock ROM.

I did run Pixel 3/6/7 with both stock and custom ROMs but only ran OP/Moto devices with custom ROMs.

And even if LOS isn't needed on a Pixel 6/7 now, it will be 3 years down the line when you only get security updates, and especially 5 years post-release when Google stops updating.

I don't need LOS on a Pixel the way I need it on a OnePlus (or a Motorola), but it's still nice to have just in case.

    Sorry for the delay, I was really busy the past three months or so. I plan to release new builds of P7 LOS later today.

    EDIT: There are experimental LOS builds here: https://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/lineageos/exp/

    I'm using those above builds now.

    here goes nothing: https://review.lineageos.org/c/LineageOS/hudson/+/341794/24

    commit for building lineageos-20 was abandoned: "sad but signing is as signing does."
    I see an experimental Lineage build was just uploaded 👀

    Can you d

    Can you do a micro g one with signature spoofing
    I'm using microG on the experimental build,
    I installed Magisk + LSPosed + Fakegapps (signature spoofing xposed mod) and they works fine!

    In the future, I hope that we'll get official builds so we could get microG/signature spoofing builds done by lineageos for microG team.

    Anyway, I'm so glad we managed to get a new build, I can finally start to pet my panther.

    I made a dirty flash with lineage-20.0-20230125-experimental-panther-signed.zip and MindTheGapps-13.0.0-arm64-20221025_100653.zip. I installed all .img-files bevor with fastboot except the super_empty.img - file. I come from the November-build.
    The rom works fine with my Pixel 7. Only two bugs I found:
    1. You can only add 4 instead of 5 fingers (with November the same).
    2. The Face Match-App does not work. The App say's I need a Wi-Fi, but I'm tried with Wi-Fi. After updating the Google-App, the App does not start anymore. Also the whole Google-Assistance-App seems not to work.

    I think the second bug is a problem of MindTheGapps.

    But thank you for this build!!! I only still miss the Face Unlock-App. But the finger-print works more reliable :)
    I also used the same MindTheGapps Gapps. No issues with the Google App and Google Assistant. Try clearing their caches.

    Does this mean we will see official builds soon? I love lineage over the stock any day. I find the scrolling on my phone a lot faster too.

    UPDATE: LineageOS has "experimental" builds for Pixel 7 (and 6) here. They aren't technically mine, but I'm also the reason Google Tensor GKI kernels build there 😁. Fortunately GPay still works with the experimental builds.
