Has anyone had success with the built-in OTA updater?

I tried with TWRP 3.4.0-HH-R7 (twrp-3.4.0-HH.R.7.img) as recovery but it fails to update with an error about a recovery.img in the TWRP log (though I did uncheck the "Update recovery" from within the updater Preferences.

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.

LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

The source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

Known bugs:
Screen mirroring via slimport HDMI adapter doesn't work.
PMF aka 802.11w doesn't work.
Wi-Fi display doesn't work
Encryption doesn't work

Wifi display is fix it ???
I already answered this question. Most likely Wi-Fi Display will not be fixed. I'll remove it from UI in the next build.

please put the gapps compatible with the rom
Right now there is no release version of gapps for Android 11. Links in the first post will start work once opengapps will be released. For now u can use unofficial builds of opengapps or test versions from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/opengapps/files/arm/test/ Also read the second post of this thread about gapps installation...

I have installed your Version 17.1 on my Nexus 5 and I am incredibly happy with it. It´s crazy that a 7.5 year old phone can run so well. The only problem is that after about 55h of runtime apps start freezing and force closing randomly and the phone gets a lot more sluggish. It seems like it has a problem clearing the RAM? Has anyone with v18.1 experienced the same behaviour? If not I will update and give it a try. Rebooting your phone every 3 days isn´t fun.

Well, Android 11 consumes more memory than Android 10. So i guess you will see the same problems on LOS 18.1

Try new build 2020-01-21

I try clean install version 2021/16 google map is not working navigate is freez....I try another app it's still same.... navigate not working
Try new build 2020-01-21. Clean flash is recommended. Google Maps works fine for me

Hey @z3DD3r, I was reading on Google's AOSP docs on encryption, and found this memo:

Apparently FDE is supported only on Android 5.0 to 9, and the new model uses a File based encryption model instead. Do you have any info on this topic? Thanks!
This is only for new devices. FDE worked fine on Android 10 on hammerhead. Moreover maintainer of G2 told me that FDE encryption works on his device. So i need to find what is wrong on hammerhead. I can't give u any timelines because i'm out of free time :(

Notification bubble is not included in last build ????
Maybe it was disabled. Can't say. I didn't change anything. Each version was built from LOS sources without any changes...
