LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Working
Everything, but
Known issues
  • VoLTE/VoWifi not working
  • Camera only shows up to 8MP
  • NFC is enabled on all models, even on the ones without it (please report device model)
  • Dualsim is enabled on all models, even on the ones without it (please report device model)
  • Screen flickering when using fingerprint (That's normal and how optical fingerprint sensors work. Flickering doesn't happen on stock I know, but that's due to poor UI implement from lineage site)

Reporting Bugs
  • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
  • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

FAQ
  • Can I use this ROM to boot other GSIs?
    You can but I won't provide any support. If you are stuck in a bootloop or something does not work, you have to look for a fix yourself. Here is a list of things that will probably be broken when using a GSI:
    • Fingerprint
    • Radio (you can fix this by extracting /system/bin/bootstrap/linker64 and /system/bin/bootstrap/linker from lineage and put them in your new system)
    • Phone calls (you can fix this by replacing /vendor/lib/hw/audio.primary.sm6150.so from stock rom, this will break calling on second sim)
  • Fingerprint doesn't work anymore after flashing a new build/installing magisk/etc.!
    Redo your fingerprints.
  • I can't enroll any fingerprints!
    Turn off night mode/lower night mode intensity.

Dears,

I have couple of questions about [BETA][UNOFFICIAL] LineageOS 16.0:
Since it is Beta:
1- Does it mean that if I install it, I won't be able to use Lineage's OTA Updater to update to newer releases ?
2- Does it mean that I would need to wipe my device each time I need to install a Lineage new version ? let's say 17.0, ......
3- If I am on Beta, can I simply flash the Official stable release once it comes out ? on top of the installed Beta ? without having to wipe my data ?

The reason I am asking these questions is because I would like to install Lineage OS but at the same time I don't want to suffer and setup up everything again from scratch once the Stable Official Lineage 16.0 gets released. So can someone tell me what are the downsides of installing a Beta Lineage? and where does the most hassle reside ?(From a day to day phone user point of view, and not from a tester or developer point of view), because the data backup / restore process takes a lot of time for me since it's huge and valuable so before switching to Lineage Beta, I am trying to understand how hard it is to migrate between Beta and Stable releases of Lineage afterwards ?

Thank You,
Wael

I am super damn thankful, finally after 4 months of this One UI ,I can finally have a fresh breeze of stock <3
Just a small note to some people if they get error "Zip Combatibility error" while flashing the ROM cause it took me 3 hours to figure it out (yea i had TWRP latest version)
The fix : Use 7zip to remove "Compatibility.zip" from the archive and then flash it normally.
Thank you Garak for your immense work for our device, we are lucky as heck that we have a developer like u in our device forum.
lots of love from Egypt <3
Also, Auto brightness doesn't work for me sadly, is there is any fix for that ? i also noticed that when i use indispaly fingerprint, the WHOLE screen go to max brightness, not only the sensor, i dont think it will help the battery life so i turned my FP off and used normal pattern.
Can confirm there are no bugs at all in FN edition, just the auto brightness
