LineageOS with microG for RS988


Your warranty is now void.

I am neither responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
thermonuclear war, nor you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
before flashing it! You alone are choosing to make these modifications.

If you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I won't laugh at you, but I'll try to work with you to fix it.


Thank you Rashed97 for your RS988 device tree!


Old unofficial LineageOS thread content said:
I am happy to introduce Lineage 15.1 Oreo to the RS988. It turned out much better than I expected!

Yesterday I was reading @SkippyDream 's thread for his Lineage 15.1 build for the H850, and I saw @TheForgottenKing 's request for an RS988 build. So I decided to take the plunge and see what would happen.

I was quite surprised. I've never used Oreo, and the UI looks fantastic! I was very happy to find that LiveDisplay works and camera focus in Snap (Camera) works as well! Without a doubt, this will be my daily driver.

One thing did carry over, though--that obnoxious kernel bug. This means no MTP for now... but at least charging works. Make sure to keep USB Debugging enabled for it to work. MTP works now.

Be fully aware of this bug before flashing this ROM!


Working:

  • Connectivities (Bluetooth, RIL, WiFi, etc.)
  • Camera (focus works with Snap!)
  • LiveDisplay
  • GPS
  • Everything else that isn't on the Not Working list.

Issues/Not Working:

  • NFC, which includes Google Pay, etc.
  • MTP
  • Expanded Desktop — causes SystemUI to slow/freeze, crash, etc.
  • Calling with BT — when using a BT device while calling, loud distortion can be heard from the receiver's end.

All issues will be the same as the unofficial LineageOS builds unless they are specific to microG.


Requirements:


Instructions:

  • Download the latest release and MAKE SURE TO VERIFY THE MD5 CHECKSUM.
  • Boot into TWRP, perform a factory reset (unless upgrading from an older release), and flash.
  • To enable signature spoofing, go to Settings / Apps & Notifications / App Permissions / Spoof package signature / Overflow Menu ( ) / Show system / enable for FakeStore, microG Services, etc. Thanks to @OverkillTASF for suggesting to include instructions.

Happy flashing! I believe this definitely will suffice until we get official Oreo in... hopefully this spring!

But, until then, let's not shilly-shally, as Skippy says ;) Let's see how well we can get this to work.

No Bluetooth (audio, anyways) has been the only reason I'm not on 15.1 – Does anyone have any fixes/workarounds for this issue yet?

Cheers and thanks for the LOS build! [emoji16]

Frame rate a tad choppy. Oreo hits a snag every now and then. I did dirty flash it though. Otherwise handles as expected, and it's wonderful to have 8.1 on this phone.

Actually, I think I just copied that issue from my LOS 14.1 thread without thinking (which is why @goast is tagged in there). I'm using BT audio right now, and it's beautiful.

I noticed one extra thing, too—Oreo supports Qualcomm aptX HD Audio, and we can use it with BT !

EDIT: In fact, I mis-titled that issue as well. The loud static issue is not related to audio playback. I'll fix that in a minute.

Excellent work!! Substratum works with this as well! Found my daily driver!! Thank you!

Only if gps worked like in pa!!!
I did test GPS on Monday with one of my typical routes on Google Maps, and I didn't have any location drops. A long-distance drive would be a much better test, but I can't do that right now...

For now, it seems that there are no GPS problems.

Also, I think I spoke too soon on the audio being fine. Static occurs with audio/video playback.

GPS works fine here too. Listening to my bt headphones I'm not noticing really any static. I'm very pleased with this rom overall.

Anyone have the wide angle lens working or was that left out? Other than that, great initial build!
Yeah the wide angle works, just not with the default camera or the opengapps camera. You need to install open camera or one of the ported Google hdr+ cameras with wide angle support.

Edit:. My bad, that was the case with nougat. At the moment I don't have any luck on the Oreo version of his rom. Guess we need to wait for the dev to fix that.
