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.

Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github Repo

Instructions:

  • TWRP or LineageOS Recovery
  • Make sure you flash any stock OneUI 2.1 ROM. This is mandatory otherwise several errors are expected.
  • Download your phone build. S20 - x1q, S20U - z3q
  • In TWRP wipe data and flash the ROM
  • Additionally you might flash OpenGapps

What's working:

  • Wifi
  • Camera
  • Audio
  • Bluetooth
  • NFC
  • FingerPrint
  • High Refresh Rate (120hz)
  • GPS
  • Video Playback
  • RIL

Known issues:

You tell me

Downloads:

Thanks to:
@chongodroid for testing the changes for x1q and building for s20.
@jesec for all of his work. The ROM is based completely off Jese's trees and kernels with modifications made to force it run in [email protected] Go ahead and thank him, donate to him because none of this would have been possible without his work.

If you also want to run LOS with a Custom Kernel, you may also install the Custom Kernel below:

JimboK-LOS KERNEL

Features:

  • Several EAS commits for balancing power+efficiency
  • Fsync On/Off Toggle
  • Dynamic Sync Control
  • SLIMBUS OC to improve the Audio Mods
  • BBR2 TCP Congestion algorithm by Default
  • Added IO-SCHED drivers like: ZEN, FIOPS, MAPLE etc...
  • KLAPSE Driver (check out https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...odule-t3907025)
  • KCAL Color Control Driver (Up to date)
  • Boeffla Wakelock Blocker Driver
  • Adreno Boost
  • Enabled a few drivers inside of Kernel: CDC, NTFS, CIFS and some native gaming devices as well
  • Added and Enabled HID: NINTENDO SWITCH controllers support
  • Enabled ZSTD Compression, it is recommended to enable this for ZRAM moving forward
  • Disabled LZO, updated LZ4 compression algorithms
  • Several Upstreams to NET/TCP in order to improve Network Connectivity and Speed.
  • Added a fix to hide Magisk Mount for Isolated Processes. This is a critical leak in MagiskHide that can be exploited by apps trying to determine if the device is rooted. I had an issue with two payment apps that after applying this fix, they work. Not sure if they were finding magisk with this method lol.

Yes we just need a tester. Neither @ChongoDroid or I own a S20+ so the support in kernel is there but need testers
I own the s20+ G986U1. I think i can help.

It should work though on s20+, I wonder if FHD density is the same as ultra. Also finger print placement might need testing.
You mean i can try the ultra version on my plus?

No no, I mean you could build lineage with our code for S20+ and it'd flash and work fine.

We've only been building for our devices but the trees from lineage have support for S20+.

We'll think about it, maybe I'll build an alpha build for S20+ and see if how it is.

No. That's not gonna work, it won't boot. What he says is we can build with the same parameters since we are forcing [email protected] the resolution and assets need to be adjusted.

Jesse's trees are configured to build at [email protected] so we need yo move stuff around to make it work at FHD+

    New build would be nice to try out.

    @jimbo77 If you have some spare time, could you make one please? :)

    Just wanted to confirm this is working great on my Galaxy S20 (SM-G981U1). Everything including fingerprint reader and cameras work great, after I followed these steps.
    • Unlock bootloader
    • Reboot into download mode (vol up + vol down + power)
    • Flash stock OneUI 2.1 firmware (from mid 2020) using Odin to have a clean base, include vbmeta_disabled in USERDATA slot
    • Boot and skip through initial setup
    • Reboot back into download mode
    • Flash TWRP using Odin, in AP slot
    • Immediately press and hold vol up + power to boot into TWRP recovery
    • Wipe -> format data to get rid of disk encryption
    • Install this rom, Open GApps nano, multidisabler (see twrp thread), and Magisk
    • Boot and do initial setup
    • Pass SafetyNet: Use MagiskHide props config to edit device fingerprint and force basic key attestation - I used the "S20 FE 5G" device for both
    • Install GCam (Wichaya's version, with the samsung package name)
    Thanks @jimbo77 for providing this rom, and everyone else who worked on it.

    I've noticed that battery life isn't as good as the stock firmware, but I haven't identified exactly what is causing it. I've disabled always on display and it helps.

    Thanks @jimbo77, in case others find it useful, I flashed LineageOS on my G986U1 using this sequence:
    • Flashed stock firmware from samfw version G986U1UEU1ATG2 to go back to OneUI 2.1. My phone was on G986U1UES1BTIG. Pay attention to the CSC shown on Download mode. My System showed LRA but Download mode showed XAA and I used XAA.
    • Unlocked bootloader and flashed TWRP as I described here.
    • Boot to recovery, moved lineage zip file from OP to sdcard and moved pico opengapps.
    • Flashed lineage zip file followed by opengapps from TWRP.
    • Wipe cache, data and dalvik
    • Reboot
    Things look good as of now, I will use this as daily driver and report if I notice any issues.
    Following are the issues I noticed:
    1. My Voice call quality is not great. First few seconds of the call I am not able to hear the other side and vice versa, then it gets better but still randomly flaky. I have tried using LTE network type rather than 5G but no noticeable difference. Has any one run into this and fixed it ?
      1. Worth mentioning that Wifi calls (whatsapp, signal) work fine and worth mentioning that I installed Lineage as soon as I got the phone, did not try Stock at all. So not sure if the issue is hardware or software.
      2. I tried building the latest sources hoping that it might solve the issue, but ran into build errors. Not sure what I am doing wrong (this is the first time I am building an unofficial device). I did the following
        1. repo init
        2. repo sync
        3. breakfast y2q
        4. updated the .repo/local_manifests/roomservice.xml to point to Jimbo77/android_device_samsung_y2q, Jimbo77/[email protected], Jimbo77/android_device_samsung_sm8250-common
        5. repo sync
        6. breakfast y2q
        7. brunch y2q
    2. Screen keeps flashing and jumping at times. More often than not, I get flashing and jumping when I use Firefox, so it could be how Firefox uses graphics layer. Anyone ran into this and fixed it ?
      1. If I close Firefox and reopen, then it works for some time.

    It does. There is a build ready for S20+
