Hey @razorloves !
As I noticed, you are a member of the LineageOS core team. So you are a pro. :)

Is it possible to build LOS 18.1 for the angler? I learned how to set up a build machine, but it seems you need developer skills to migrate the 15.1 code base (kernel and device specific code) to a newer version of LineageOS. Is this possible and are you maybe working on it?

sure, it's possible to build it, with some dev work.
but i'm not working on it.
ims (volte, wifi calling, hd voice, rcs texting, video calling) is broken on all angler custom roms newer than oreo. No one has figured out how to fix it. That's why i continue updating 15.1.

I just wanted to drop in and thank @razorloves for maintaining such an awesome ROM for this device. I have bounced around with the others; Bliss, Havoc, as well as 16, 17, and 18 LOS roms. None of them have the stability or battery life that this build delivers. Again, thank you @razorloves, you rock!

    @razorloves - updated my N6P from the April 2021 build to the newest, May 2021 with a simple dirty flash, with the last step flashing the 4 core patch from within TWRP. Boot up nicely & butterly smooth. Everything just works and I see no reasons to find another daily with any of the newer custom roms, including LOS - been there & came back here. Thank you for keeping the device "live" - had a brand new OEM battery installed last year so going to have lots of fun for a while.

    That's exactly my experience too, tried pretty much everything out there and ended where I once started for the sake of reliability, stability and performance combined with incredible battery life, I got a great replacement battery 6 month ago with fast charging working and according to AccuBattery 99% of it's design capacity remaining! Actually managed to replace the battery without breaking anything (talking to you damn rear camera glass!) and now I feel like I'm having a perfect spare device to tinker a little with Magisk and stuff...

    I had many android devices but the last nexus has a special place in my heart, I like it's design and the feel of it! It's part of the important android history!

    tl; dr
    It's absolutely incredible this ROM, it's the perfect daily driver material!

    Many thanks to everyone involved with developing it...

      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. If you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Wiki.




      Important Info
      To flash this rom you need TWRP 3.2.0-0 or newer. https://twrp.me/huawei/huaweinexus6p.html

      Make sure you have the radio & bootloader img's installed from the stock oreo 8.1 OPM7.181205.001 Dec 2018 factory image.
      They can be extracted from the factory image on google's site here. Or you can use the ones linked below that I already extracted:
      radio & bootloader img's: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=286833
      Those img's can be flashed with fastboot command.

      Note: There's an issue happening to some angler users on custom oreo roms. The first boot after flashing rom your sim card might not be detected. It's easy to fix. Just go to lockscreen security settings and change it to 'none' and then reboot. Then you can change it back to whatever you want. This only happens one time when you first flash oreo.

      Download Links
      rom: https://download.lineageos.org/angler
      Note: LineageOS servers no longer make 15.1 builds for any devices. You can use my unofficial builds here. My older builds are here.
      Note#2: if you want to switch from an official build to my unofficial builds, follow instructions here.
      google apps (optional): https://wiki.lineageos.org/gapps.html (Use arm64 / 8.1)
      root su addon (optional): https://download.lineageos.org/extras Note: Use arm64 15.1 zip. After installing the su addon, you can enable root in developer options.

      Instructions
      If updating from old unofficial to newer unofficial, follow the steps below:
      1. if you don't already have them installed, flash the newest radio and bootloader img's linked above.
      2. boot into twrp and flash the rom zip.
      Reboot & enjoy.
      NOTE: if you previously flashed gapps and/or the su addon, there's no need to flash them again. They will be automatically re-installed during rom zip installation.
      NOTE2: if you want to switch from an official build to my unofficial builds, follow instructions here.

      If coming from a different rom:
      1. if you don't already have them installed, flash the newest radio & bootloader img's linked above. also make sure you have the newest twrp, linked above.
      2. boot into twrp and wipe system & data & cache.
      3. flash rom & gapps & su addon zips (gapps & su zips are optional).
      Reboot & enjoy.



      Weather Provider Addon (Optional)
      For those that like the lineage cLock widget, here's the OpenWeather apk you need to get weather info.
      https://download.lineageos.org/extras
      Grab the one for version 16.0. It also works with 15.1.
      Note: You'll need an api key from OpenWeather.

      The changes for august security update have been merged. :D

      https://review.lineageos.org/#/q/topic:o_asb_2018-08

      So, you'll need the new august vendor img for the next lineage build.
      The radio and bootloader img's are the same as in last month's update from google, so no need to flash them.
      I extracted the img's from the august OPM6.171019.030.H1 factory image. You can get them here:
      https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=280376

      time for new build :good:
      lineage-15.1-20180115-UNOFFICIAL-angler.zip

      if updating from my previous 15.1 build:
      just reboot into twrp recovery, flash the rom zip, then reboot.

      major changes since last build:
      1. you can now have separate notification and ring volume controls
      2. the power menu is fixed and working 100%
      3. increased range of display size setting (screen density)
      4. downloads show speed and able to pause/resume
      5. bluetooth battery level was added to the status bar
      6. shake and flip actions were added for snoozing or dismissing alarm
      7. a new dark theme setting was added in settings->display (note: still a work-in-progress)
      24
      Build breakage is fixed :good: https://review.lineageos.org/211131
      So the next scheduled build on Monday shouldn't have any issues.

      And all repos have been updated with April security patches and changes.
      So when you flash the next build you'll need to update your vendor img to the newest one in the April OPM3.171019.019 factory image.
      I've already extracted it so you can have it ready to flash on monday, here https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=261872
      The bootloader and radio img's are the same as what was in last months factory image, so no need to flash them if you already have them.

      The changes from google's september security update have been merged. :D

      So, you'll need the new september vendor img for the next lineage build, which should come out tomorrow, like normal..
      The radio and bootloader img's are the same as in last month's update from google, so no need to flash them.
      I extracted the img's from the september OPM6.171019.030.K1 factory image. You can get them here:
