Lineage 17.1

Custom ROM for the LG G7 ThinQ

WARNING: Discontinued
No more Updates from me


This is Lineage 17.1 (Android 10) ROM designed for the LG G7 ThinQ. It was designed with the help of @thenotonly and @SGCMarkus and without them this would not have been possible. Thank you guys for all your help!

Supported models:
  • Anything that can go into Fastboot
    (exept T-Mobile model G710TM and Korean users will have a hard time following the guide)
Warning: You need to have Android 9.0 Stock pre-installed.

Warranty Void:

I am not responsible if you are late for work, missed an important call, got yourself stuck under a rock or break your TV with a wii remote. That also includes turtles. Make sure everything important is working for you before you decide to use this ROM as a daily driver.


What is working:

  • Auto-brightness
  • Camera
  • Calls
  • DAC Controls
  • FM Radio
  • NFC
  • Bluetooth
  • WiFi
  • SDCard
  • Always on Display
  • Vibration
  • Most stuff i haven't mentioned


What are the Bugs:

  • Hotspot Fixed
  • Bluetooth Audio (Workaround)
  • USB Hotspot
  • The ones that are still hidden
Download link:
  • There are 2 Versions. One with Google apps (Gapps) pre-installed and one without Google apps (Gapp-less) witch is for people who dont like Gapps and want an alternative like Nanodroid (Not included).


Installation:
Step 1: TWRP
  1. Backup any data you have (including music, photos, etc)!
    - You cannot do that in TWRP!
  2. FIrst you need to boot TWRP. You can refer to the Guide right here
    TWRP Guide for the LG G7 ThinQ < -- Link
  3. Once you meet all the requirements boot into TWRP and proceed to step 2

Step 2: Installing
  1. In TWRP go to Wipe -> Format Data. ( This will wipe absolutely everything on the phone.)
  2. Connect your phone to your PC.
  3. Download Lineage 17.1 Installation zip file from Google Drive and copy it to your phone
  4. In TWRP go to Install -> Find your zip file -> Install it
  5. Once done reboot the phone
  6. Done

Step 3. Install Magisk (Optional)
  1. Make soure you have successfully booted into LineageOS
  2. Reboot to bootloader
  3. Boot into TWRP using "fastboot boot"
  4. Download Magisk zip file from the official Magisk XDA thread (Google it) to your phone
  5. Install Magisk zip
  6. Reboot to system
  7. Done.
Congratulations! Now You have LineageOS installed on your device! WooHoo! :victory:

First Thank You for such great ROM!
I think for now there is no way to root this ROM on korean version. I tried to Install this Rom, next I changed with LGUP only boot_a using partition.dl for flash boot from ULM 11g ROM to unlock fastboot, flashed twrp (after this step I was able to boot stock ROM from slot a) and installed magisk from TWRP to boot_b which is used by LineageOS (select slot b in TWRP) after magisk install bootloop. Tried also flash only boot_b with ULM 11g boot same result.

I think there is problem with booting this with any other boot installed.
