What does it mean to be necessary "firmware a11"?
I have to install vendor stock ROM and update to Android 11 before installing DarkJoker360's ROM?
You need only fw a11 (it is ~70mb), no ROM stock.
Flash it before or after, it doesn't matter.

What's the diiference beetween official or unofficial for an user like me ? (I'm asking me if I have to install this one or not 🤔)
Depends on how much you care about security. Official builds are verified and hosted by a big and trustworthy project, while with unofficial builds it all comes to a trust you give to a signle developer - that he didn't make any mistakes, wasn't hacked etc.

Official 18.1 would be very much appreciated.

Not because 18.1 is radically different and better than 17.1, but because everything has moved on.

If you can be an official 17.1 dev and an unoffical 18.1 dev, there is no reason you cannot be an offical 18.1 dev.

Jumping ship is for swabs, varlets and the profane. Real men stay the course.

Be your brave and make the official rom, it is very easy to give advice and do anything.

Relax. If he wants to, he will. Don't you know how many rules need to be complied so a device can be in official Lineage build? If you haven't so, here, read again, slowly and carefully. If I were him, I'd only support one, either just 17.1 or just 18.1, but not both.

Thanks for the advice guys.

The dev is a;ready an official dev for 17.1. And many of the 17.1 devs have moved on to 18.1, and left 17.1 behind. Both my other two devices have followed this pattern and it is by no means the exception.

So there is no actual problem here at all. And all I was doing was offering gentle encouragement to do what the vast majority of other 17.1 devs have already done, or are about to do.

You know, apart from a few notification things and minor /data layout tweaks, there is no real difference between 17.1 and 18.1.

My other devices - Samsung Tab s5e, Oneplus 5T.



You can clearly see that they just moved seamlessly from 17.1 to 18.1 without breaking a sweat.

And as regards the point about me becoming a dev for 18.1, well that will not be possible while 17.1 is still supported. And as regards the point about the current dev having to support both 17.1 and 18.1, nobody is doing this, and nor are they expected to.

But by all means continue to offer disparaging comments dressed as advice.

What about enabling the front camera? Official 17.1 LOS still doesn't have the front camera enabled for some reason.
Not sure if your statement there is entirely correct.

My front cam works fine with both Zoom and trCam on LOS 17.1. Not sure if the LOS cam app works or not as I never use it, given that trCam is so nice.

Thanks.
The app crashes when I switch to the front camera.
Since the firmware is updated I'd better install the vendor ROM and check if the front camera works there.

Xiaomi changed the frontcam sensor with 11-2020 batch.
It is now OV13B10 (Omnivision). The old one is OV13855.
Android 10 rom's doesn't connect to this new camera.
LOS 17.1 can't this too,
Because I found that some A11 rom's does work with OV13B10 , I think LOS 18.1 will do too.

    Hi Folks,
    thanks @DarkJoker360 for this amazing rom! Everything went fine for me on my willow! Upgrade from official LOS17.1.
    OrangeFox Recovery R11.0.1. Wipe Dalvik/Art, Cache, System, Vendor, Data. Flash latest LOS18.1 and Magisk 22.1.zip (rename apk to zip) Phone is encrypted and I can access internal storage as well. Migration from my apps, data, permissions with migrate4.0 went well! Signature Spoof from @Kingslayer9988 from this thread works very well. MicroG works!
    Thanks!

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, 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.

    What's not working :
    • You tell me
    Instructions :
    • Download the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Flash the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot
    Downloads :
    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 /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (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.

    What is your--
