Hi guys, sorry it took me forever to get back. After more then 3 months of non-booting builds I was able to get things back to work again last September.

If any of you are interested to try out the build of Lineage-17.1 I was able to work on feel free to download:


A couple of notes: about the build:

-Updated with October Security Patches

-Decrypted by default ( uses FDE rather than FBE)
*Haven't tried an FBE build as of late, as I'd rather deal with sometimes failing to unlock lockscreen (which can be solved by rebooting to TWRP->Advanced->File Manager->go to Data->System then delete locksettings.db file etc.)

-Ships with Snap Camera
*Users can then download the GoogleCamera from playstore, which is v5.1 I think, or find modded Gcams with higher versions. At this point I'm happy with being able to take photos with HDR and being able to use the camera more reliably for video calling etc.)
*If I ship it with GCam for PixelExperience HDR doesn't appear to work on regular shots (even with HDR+ enabled) though strangely NIght Sight works and processes HDR+

-A few settings/overlays have been tweaked or removed. I've removed live display for now but it can be added back
*There were some overlays (ex. Smart Pixels) which I found to cause the camera to glitch out

-A few kernel modifications
*Added wakelock blocker and powersuspend driver

-Plus other under-the-hood stuff added from AOSP as well as other ROMS (aospk, CrDroid, Pixel Experience, arrowOS to name a few

-Use TWRP 3.1.1 to flash. Also please backup your data before hand and I suggest a full factory reset/format data prior to flashing

-Tested with nikgapps (I used basic gapps package then have some add-ons)
*I just find it convenient that if you flash the SetupWizard addon you can restore backups, though I suggest not using the most recent addon (10-17)for SetupWizard as I am having a greyed-out backup now button with this)

P.S. In case you reboot then find the lockscreen does not unlock after putting your PIN, wait for a minute then unlock again. Otherwise if you get kicked to the lockscreen, reboot to recovery then delete the locksettings.db files.I really haven't gotten to find how to resolve this issue that may occassionally happen (due to using FDE), but its a better tradeoff than using FBE and ending up rebooting to recovery on your next 3-5 reboots.

Special thanks to LineageOS, PixelExperience, CrDroid, Bliss OS, AOSPK, Carbon ROM, AOSP, e tc. I have zero claim other than just putting together amazing code that has already been created by our hardworking devs thorughout the years.

Lastly, I was not able to receive any response from PixelBoot regarding posting, so if any mods feel this post violates rules please feel free to take down any time. I'm just happy to share what I have worked on for the community.
Thanks, mate. I would like to be using your build but unfortunately some changes you made on SELinux broke Viper4Android/JamesDSP when I tested. If you have any suggestion or could look at that. If you still want to work with this device, anyway.

Hi all,

so speed and stability of the ROM (with stock radio-angler-angler.img) is okay.

  • this is a "backup" nexus 6p, it sat on the shelf almost for a year
    • something is off with the battery, it drains faster than on my "old" nexus 6p
  • it crashed once when incoming call, while at the same time tried to activate camera

was able to root :) (have flashed the FBE twrp version as Rehman and it works with Magisk v20.4)

update: how to root with Magisk v20.4 and install a AFWall+ firewall:​

Code:
hostnamectrl; # tested on:
Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Kernel: Linux 4.19.0-18-amd64
Architecture: x86-64


start AFWall+ it should ask:

View attachment 5483903

but might fail:

View attachment 5483905

View attachment 5483907

it might be needed to go into settings of Magisk and explicitly select AFWall+ to grant root rights.

THANKS ALL INVOLVED!

LOVE IT!


Good afternoon:

Do you have supersu and magisk?

If so, remove supersu : https://download.lineageos.org/extras

And then on the magisk screen. On the main screen at the bottom. You will see a shield. And there is where you must activate Afwall+ (superuser permissions).

But I recommend that you have the latest version of magisk and magisk manager: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk

Magisk is at version 24.1 and from what I see you have it very outdated.

But if you want to use supersu you can, but without magisk. And it should work the same. Because I tried it once on another phone. But supersu has been without updates the strip. And better magisk without gifts.

And that the afwall you have before you uninstall it. Download the fdroid application and download it from it. If you don't have it in the github https://github.com/ukanth/afwall

A hug

Hello, can anyone help me with this issue please.
I flashed the stock 8.1. This was the latest version that I was able to find.
I flashed twrp 3.2.1.0
I flashed the magisk 2.4
Booted the phone
Went back to twrp.
Flashed the lineage os and it was going good until it failed on some failed to mount vendor, see image attached . I read some posts where it said to flash the vendor image that goes with the rom. In this case lineage os but the stock rom already had all that. I had even flashed the vendor separately and then flashed the lineage and ran into same issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated

read the last 10x pages of this forum's threat.

have you rebooted? the phone should STILL work :)

it is because the device is using "full disk encryption" and not "file based encryption"

either ignore the message or flash newer version of twrp get twrp-3.3.1.0-FBE-10+-angler.img

https://tmp.androidfilehost.com/?fid=4349826312261825206

as the older twrp version does not have support for "file based encryption" (FBE)

Thank you for the help. i had actually flashed twrp 3.4 before as well and it did not help thinking 3.4 should have the FBE as well? Flashing twrp that you mentioned with FBE helped regardless. Thanks again

Huawei Nexus 6P
I would like to share my personal builds. Maybe I will update every few months, maybe not...

thank you so much! for about 100 dollars, just bought another brand new, sealed 128gb nexus 6p from Taobao. Looking forward to trying this ROM.
 
I followed this guide, installed microg and only things not working are wifi calling (phone dialer app tells me to connect to wifi to make call but i already am), can't send images/vids/audio via text, and no wifi screen casting. I'm on mint mobile btw and have enabled wifi calling in their app. Any ideas?

I'm getting a black screen when I try to play any video on Amazon Prime Video or Disney. The audio comes in without issue. Happens on streaming and downloaded videos. Yet YouTube is fine. Any way to fix those two apps? Perhaps are DRM or codec support issue?

Thanks for you great work sir! would you like to share the code: device_tree, vendor_tree and kernel tree
 
So here's what I've got, a Nexus 6p on this lineage 17.1. I followed the guide exactly, and what is happening is that whenever I use the dialer it drops LTE to 3G and sometimes will refuse to make or receive phone calls at all. However if I use Google Voice whether I'm on Wi-Fi or off Wi-Fi it switches and makes the call successfully has anyone else been experiencing this? Or possibly knows a fix? Thanks. Also I would like to note that if I'm just using data like texting or web browsing or streaming it actually holds the LTE

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, 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.

    Important Info:
    To flash this rom you need TWRP 3.3.1.0 or newer.


    Make sure you have the vendor, 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:
    vendor, radio, bootloader img's: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=286833
    The vendor img is flashable with twrp or fastboot. For the radio and bootloader img, use fastboot.

    Instructions:
    If updating from an unofficial lineage-17.1 build, follow the steps below:
    1. If you don't already have them installed, flash the newest vendor, radio, and bootloader img's linked above.
    2. Boot into TWRP.
    3. Flash the ROM zip.
    4. 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.

    If coming from a different ROM:
    1. If you don't already have them installed, flash the newest vendor, radio, and bootloader img's linked above. also make sure you have the newest twrp, linked above.
    2. Boot into TWRP.
    3. Wipe system & data & cache partitions.
    4. Format data.
    5. Flash rom & GApps & su zips (GApps & su zips are optional).
    6. Reboot & enjoy.

    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.

    Install Instructions

    • Grab our recovery from the peripherals section and install it.
      Through TWRP Recovery:
      Install Zip > Install Image > Choose ‘recovery.img‘ > Select partition ‘Recovery’ > Swipe to confirm flash
      Through Fastboot:
      Code:
      fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    • Install the ROM and then wipe your internal data partition.
      Through TWRP Recovery:
      Wipe > Format data
      Through Fastboot:
      Code:
      fastboot -w
    • Reboot into system and wait until the process finishes, it could take a little bit. After the installation is done, I suggest waiting before using the phone because it usually goes into thermal throttling after installing a ROM.
