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
Information and installation instruction can be found on the LineageOS wiki here.

NOTE 1: The newest version Google Camera app in the play store does not fully support our camera hardware. You need to use an older version of the app if you want 100% working camera. You can download it from here and install it, then immediately go to the camera app in the play store and tap the 3 dot menu in top right corner and disable auto updates.
NOTE 2: I recommend using the newest radio and bootloader from the final factory image released by google (M4B30Z, Dec 2016). You can extract them from the factory image here, or use the ones linked below that I already extracted.
They can be flashed with fastboot.
Tip: If your device already has these versions installed, there's no need to reflash them. You can boot into fastboot mode and see the radio and bootloader version numbers.
* radio-hammerhead-m8974a-2.0.50.2.30.img
* bootloader-hammerhead-hhz20h.img

Download Links
LineageOS: https://download.lineageos.org/hammerhead
Note: Since the lineage build servers no longer make 14.1 builds, I started making them for you. Available here. My older builds here.
Google apps: (optional) http://opengapps.org/?arch=arm&api=7.1&variant=nano (Use arm / 7.1)
SU addon: (optional) https://download.lineageos.org/extras Note: Use 14.1 arm zip. After installing the su addon, you can enable root in developer options.


Weather Provider Addon (Optional)
For those that like the lineage cLock widget, here's the OpenWeather apk you need to get weather info.
https://mirrorbits.lineageos.org/WeatherProviders/OpenWeatherMapWeatherProvider.apk
Note: You'll need an api key from OpenWeather.

How is the rom for non caf? What are the bugs? Is it stable? Does it have the pixel nav bar animation?

why don't you try it for yourself instead of asking what is working or not. that's why there's a custom recovery called TWRP so you can back up and restore your data.

FEEDBACK SO FAR:
At first, most of Google made apps didn't work, had to reinstall them. CM Bug Report app keeps crashing at every restart. HDR doesn't work on Google Camera (it's there but it doesn't work). Theme Engine missing is a known fact, we'll have it in future updates. Many CM features from the settings menu, don't work, they are present and active, but no changes occur when using them. Battery charges slow as you can see from the screenshot.
The rest seems ok, after 3 hours of use.

Offtopic opinion. The Navigation dropdown with all it's quicksettings and whatever is a downgrade for me. Lollipop/Marshmallow had better looking system graphics, with floating navigation bar and notifications and nicer animations when pulling the notification bar down. Now it's just fullscreen flat thingy.
Had to take this of my chest regarding Android Nougat...but we have to blend with the evolution right? :)

What version are you using? 2.7, 3.2 or 4.X? Have you tried video recording?

Always on the latest updates. It updated by itself after booting, it's 4.2.xxx
Video recording works. Google Camera used to have a bug and it still does on CM13, but on the Nexus 4. When trying to slide to video, it force closes... Same on my tablet with an unofficial CM13, it's a Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1.
I know the HDR doesn't work because usually it deactivates the flash when it's on, or the other way around (turning on flash disables HDR), but now it's doesn't do that and the flash works with HDR on and it shouldn't...
I think something like this was happening in CM12 and it started working after a few updates of the Google Camera and CM...

1. Theme engine is missing.
2. Some setting options are not working.
3. Developer Options are enabled but not opening.
4. Charging slowing.

Some screenshots are attached.

That was the lastest version for Marshmallow, right?

Downgraded and it works. Hope to see the latest version work soon, too...

Another short feedback: Apps sometimes have no sound, so you have to restart the phone...

Hi,

Would you please check if everything's working with Google Camera 3.2 on this ROM? Mostly video recording, HDR pictures and the panoramas.

Thanks in advance.
