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 restores 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.

Downloads
ROM Download: here
GApps Download (BitGapps): here


Installation
Install the latest OrangeFox(recommended, available here) or TWRP 3.3.1 or later
Make a full backup (just in case something goes wrong)
Make a full wipe(System, Data, Cache)
* Dirty flash may work, try and tell me.
Download the latest build and transfer it to your phone
Flash the zip
If you are installing GApps do it before booting to the ROM. Make sure to flash the correct architecture and version(arm 11.0)
And finally boot, the first boot can take several minutes as it optimizes all the apps

There are still quite a few features that are not yet completed for LineageOS 18.0, these are not bugs, this is a beta release.
You should provide logs when reporting any hardware-related issue.

How to provide logcats

Under Windows:


Code:
[B]* Install Samsung device drivers and then
 the ADB utils from here:[/B]

[url]https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979[/url]

[b]* Then enable developer mode, connect your phone to usb,
 and from [B]cmd[/B] paste this command:[/b]

[I]adb logcat > %userprofile%/Desktop/logcat.txt[/I]

[b]then try to reproduce the bug.[/b]

[b]* The logcat file will be on your desktop.[/b]



Under Linux:


Code:
[b]* Install the ADB utils from your distribution's
 package manager and execute the command:[/b]

[I]adb logcat > ~/logcat.txt[/I]

[b]then try to reproduce the bug.[/b]

[b]* The logcat file will be in your home directory.[/b]

* Submit the logcat here on the forums, or on the Telegram group.

* If you can't connect the device through ADB on Windows because of the drivers, connect the device over wifi, enable ADB over Network in developer options, and type:

Code:
adb connect [ip address here]

And then the adb logcat command for windows.
[/HIDE]

Also do not under any circumstances post bug reports if you are using substratum themes or unsupported Magisk modules or you have performed any system modifications.

As some of you may know, Google has been recently making AOSP build system require more and more RAM, to the point that building with 8GB of RAM is more or less impossible (dirty builds with no changes take 5-6 hours with lots of hacks and modifications). Clean builds take days and sometimes weeks to build. My PC currently has 8GB RAM, and I have used it to build most of my ROMs. I have got a server from itexpert.120 (Zeeshan Ahmad) today, and I am very thankful to him for it, but I would prefer to have a more permanent solution. Building locally is easier for testing, but it is very tedious and time-consuming, so I am planning to upgrade my RAM.

I have never asked for any kind of donations for any of my work before, but right now I think it's time I do so, most probably for the only time. My country is in a bit of a tight situation right now, and I also don't have the 'usual' means of asking for donations (a la PayPal and such). As I am going to buy RAM from Amazon, I have decided to accept donations in form of Amazon.com Gift Cards. I am planning to buy 16GB DDR4 RAM from Amazon, which is currently $59.99 USD. I will be paying the remaining cost myself after the donation. Every amount will help! Remember, the Gift Card needs to be for Amazon.com. If you are interested in donating, please drop a PM on XDA or Telegram (@Zakaryan2004). I will help you through the process if there are any doubts. Thank you so much for reading and understanding.

This ROM is awesome having even close to android 11 is just mindblowing for our beloved device but after installing it I would like to report some problems/ bugs :

1). The battery life is so little with this ROM
2). After logging in to a Google account in the setup and after opening chrome it again asks for login and takes to the same setup but I have found it is okay with play store and YouTube
3). It is also a little bit laggy not severe but little bit

At last I would like to say that the developers are so amazing to put android 11 in this device. God bless you and keep the fantastic work going
 
Use Magisk 21, that's the version which will work on Android 11. I have been using Magisk and it works just fine
I see now, thats the prob. I use magisk 20.4(20400)
Thanks a lot for ur time.

---------- Post added at 05:19 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:17 PM ----------

Typically anything over 20.422 should work. Which magisk package are you using?
I use magisk 20.4(20400), i'll try again. Thanks a lot for ur help :cowboy:
