Hi there!

I'm currently running "Pixel Experience" on my Pixel C...looking to move to Lineage and try it out. It looks like Magisk and GApps isn't included in this ROM, correct?

If so, can you please provide links where I can download them from?

Thanks!

BJ

LineageOS does not include GApps or Magisk.
It does include adbd (run an adb shell as root).

It is not a good idea or recommended to include Magisk in a custom rom build.

Use the Patching Images or Custom Recovery option.​

Notes:

John removed all the MagiskHide goodies going forward.
Magisk v23 is the last official release that will contain what was MagiskHide.

Does this ROM support Widevine L1? If not is there any ROM that does support it or anyway to watch netflix in HD?
I honestly don''t believe does but I really don't know. However keep in mind this is a 5-year old device.

When I want to watch Netflix in HD I look at my 55 inch Samsung 4K Smart TV and I get really beautiful hd picture. I don't watch HD on my tablet as although it was wonderful technology in 2016, by today's standard it is old, slow and ancient.

Lol I don't use my TV at all I prefer watchin on handheld devices like my Pixel C that has a very crisp 2560x1800 screen :)

Well enjoy my friend! But with a small amount of RAM that we have with a pixel c and the circa 2016 processor, your your picture quality and ability to stream are limited. I love this device but it is near the end of the line for my trusty pixel C.

I Just clean installed latest 18.1 and having some strange Wifi signal strength issues that I've never had before my WIfI signal strength is fluctuating all over the place even right next to the router internet is unusable. Note I'm not having this issue on my Nexus 6 running 18.1

Anyone else having this issue any fix ?

I have not had the issue you described. Try downloading the ROM again and dirty flash it over your setup.

    Google Drive Security Update

    Google Drive applied security updates on September 13th.
    For this reason the access links for my shared folders have been changed.

    The links on the first page and for the last build have been already updated.

    Pls find new link below ..

    Have you tried to reinstall Gapps after flashing the ROM?
    Yes, that's exactly what I tried a few hrs after my post. It worked! Thanks. Good suggestion!
    This has happened to me with every Lineage 18 build, dirty flashing never works here. I usually wipe the system partition then install ROM, Gapps and Magisk.

    Hi. :)

    Was Magisk still installed after dirty-flashing Gapps?

    If it is only OpenGApps, then the problem is probably with OpenGApps.
    If no backup/restore/install (addon.d) scripts are running then it is a problem with the device build, lineageOS or recovery used.


    Cheers. :cowboy:

    PS.
    There was a permission error in OpenGApps the last couple of weeks and was fixed today.
    Also the full build of official OpenGApps Android 11 (SDK30) is on deck for building.
    No more test builds. ;)

    Are there any solutions for the super buggy slow loading and freezing Chrome issues ?
    If I had any Android dev chops I'd be looking into it. Lots of us want this, but I'm just happy anyone is still paying development attention to this device *at all*. Long live the Pixel C!

    - Encryption seems not to work - and has not been tested. -> Pls do not encrypt your data partition yet !
