Anyone have viper working on this?
There are 2 different ways that I was able to get V4A working on this ROM.
  1. Flash the attached zip via Magisk. This is v2.7.1.6 designed specifically for A11. Be aware that this will disable SELinux.
  2. Follow these steps:
    1. Flash Audio Modification Library module from Magisk Manager
    2. Reboot
    3. Flash the latest V4A module from Magisk Manager
    4. Reboot
    5. Open V4A app, grant root, let it install the driver and it will automatically reboot
    6. Open the V4A app and turn on Legacy Mode
    7. I got these steps from this post in the V4A thread. He says it shouldn't disable SELinux, but YMMV

I'm noob regarding android as I came from ios.
Installed lineageos, finally, after some days and I'm having a question
I saw on the first post that this rom still have some google services installed
Is it there a way to uninstall them (will this break the phone)?
Also ... is it microg is supported by default ? (as I don't want it at all... no aurora store, no play store, no google stores at all) ...

Was a bad copy-paste. microg is not supposed supported.

Thank you for the ROM! Can confirm that it's working. On top of the ROM I've done the following (not explicitly supported by the ROM and not the default of the ROM)
  1. Rooted using Magisk (patching the boot.img, which needs to be done every update), as per topjohnwu's Github repo instructions
  2. Added NanoDroid's implementation of MicroG and friends (slimmed down from the default bloated installation) with no issues
Note that under the above set-up, apps that require some GMS implementation (e.g. WhatsApp) will work, but anything that checks SafetyNet will not (SafetyNet not passing is a MicroG bug that is marked WONTFIX because of Google's move towards hardware attestation that would defeat it anyway). Altogether a great solution for a de-Googled Google phone!

Thanks once again (and dropped a tip for both yourself and the fantastic LineageOS team)!

If you are interested in trying to get SafetyNet, give this a try:


kdragon from the Proton AOSP ROM came up with it and I've got it working for that ROM without having to alter Magisk Hide Props.

Thanks for the suggestion! I think that would work for someone running GApps (I previously got SafetyNet to pass with GApps and the aforementioned module). However, it does not work with microG. This is no loss - the banking apps that I use do not require passing SafetyNet.

Hi, and thanks for posting. I'm thinking of purchasing a Pixel 5 and using this Rom with mocroG, just like you have done. One if my prerequisites is that it works with two sims. In the OP I read that the eSIM requires GApps; can you please advise if your eSIM works with microG installed? If yes, as a follow-on question, can you point me to where I can learn how to install "Nanodroid's implementation of microG and friends?" Cheers!
