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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *

Thank you very much @RavnPW
Tried on Indian dualsim version (M8sd)
its working good, fast
As mentioned NFC is not working


Also camera freezes on hdr mode but takes the picture
Installed various camera app all freezes on hdr mode , All other camera mode are working fine ...

This is not a problem, but if you can tell how to or reduce vibrator intensity it would be great .

Thanks again for the rom

ROM works great, however there is no camera app despite listing that it is working fine in OP?

Also, is there any possibility to link for a gapps zip that will flash with this? I can't seem to find a compatible flashable zip.

What's your model? It seems that the camera library was not loaded correctly.



You can flash Open Gapps, but stock and super variants are not recommended.

I found the GApps, thanks!

The model is e8 single sim. I can use the double tap power button feature to access camera, but it crashes immediately. Downloading third party camera apps open, but fail to load the camera, "can not load camera, it may be in use by another app".

The camera is working on my m8sx (single sim).
Have you tried wiping and flashing it again?

If it's not working, send me a kernel log.
To get a kernel log, you need root access. Install Magisk first.
Code:
adb shell
htc_e8:/ $ su
htc_e8:/ # cd sdcard
htc_e8:/sdcard # dmesg > kernel.log

Send me the file "/sdcard/kernel.log".

What's your twrp version?
Try to insall the latest twrp (https://twrp.me/htc/htconee8.html).
If it still doesn't work, delete the first two lines(assert...) in META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script in the ROM and flash it again.

Camera is not working properly when HDR is on, it's the same with other camera apps like Retrica. They crash or make the whole system freeze!
Kernel log and a logcat while taking a photo are attached.
Thank you for your time.

It seems that the problem is solved, but I noticed a weird problem, when I copy multiple files, for example songs from internal to sd, the music files will be corrupted and the music player can't play it. Or if I copy some apps, I can't install them anymore. I checked my sd card on another device and it worked great but on my phone the problem remains. i appreciate if somebody can help me.

    Thanks for the great work.
    I have a couple of things that wanna ask before flashing this.
    I still want to use this as a daily phone so is there anyone who can comment on the stability?
    I'm coming from Lineage 14. How can I confirm whether I have M firmware? How can I get it if I don't?
    Anything that is not working except NFC? Like in Lineage 14 double tape to wake did not work and sometimes it will freeze and go into bootloop.
    Really appreciate if anyone can comment on these!

    To get to the first part, i.e. stability, the rom is fairly stable, you might find some stutter here and there sometimes, but other that that it's fine.
    Secondly, if you were on lineage 14 you have M firmware & you can definitely flash this rom.
    I've been using this rom for past 3 to 4 months & I myself didn't find anything that doesn't work except NFC of course. And, about the double tap to wake, it works perfectly fine for me. I'd also confirm that I didn't face any bootloops in the course of me using the rom. Lastly, I'll conclude by saying that you can definitely use this as a daily driver, you might find it a little slow but then again it's pie you're getting, so I wouldn't complain much.
    Overall I'm happy with it :good:
