I have seen that runninghamster0 has rebased the kernel. In the new kernel source the patches until ASB 2020-08 seem to be included. Therefore I have compled the most recent build using his kernel.

I also swapped the soft buttons that no 3rd party app is needed to have the soft keys as
If you don't like, you could just use the patch from @raystef66.

It would have been nice to ask me before including my kernel in a build and posting it publicly. It has some issues that I'm aware of such as USB options not being accessible and random DFUs. I did not mention anywhere that it was 100% stable, but sure feel free to use it since it's already been posted..

Hello, is it possible to make dirty flash over crDROID? And I have also one problem. I have installed the newest TWRP but cannot mount /data drive (0 size) so there is no possibility to backup the whole phone. Is there any solution to backup my phone? Thanks standal

I could never get that patch thing to work for me anyway and had to use a kludgy root app to get them in this order, so great news for me! 😁

I would not recommend to make a dirty flash like this. However, it could work, but you´ll never know what issues you get.
You can use EDL mode to make a full backup.

    About Lineage OS:

    Lin·e·age
    /ˈlinēij/
    noun
    lineal descent from an ancestor; ancestry or pedigree.
    a sequence of species each of which is considered to have evolved from its predecessor.


    Disclaimer:
    LineageOS (Lineage Android Distribution) members or anyone else on this website is not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in the products you find here before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Your warranty will be void if you tamper with any part of your device / software.


    Warning:
    This ROM will not work on devices that have not installed the O bootloader and appropriate modem package below. Also does any build from now on require a vendor partition, by doing this you will lose the ability to flash official builds provided by ZTE. Any failure in this process of flashing or repartitioning could lead to an unrecoverable bricked device.

    What's not working:
    SELinux is permissive

    Instructions:
    Attention! The bootloader needs to be unlocked!
    Attention! You'll need a vendor partition!
    1. Install the Universal bootloader and your model specific modem. Download
    2. Flash vendor creation tool. Download (unnecessary, if done already)
    * On first flash the device will reboot, just reboot to recovery and reflash the zip.
    3. Update your version of TWRP. Download
    4. Perform a backup of your current ROM. (optional)
    5. Wipe system,data and cache (optional) [Needed if coming from another rom!; always good to avoid bugs]
    6. Install the ROM. Download
    7. Install GApps. (optional) [Recommended -> Open GApps (arm64) (9.0)]
    8. Reboot.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, didn't notes that LineageOS pushed the new CAF display,media and audio HALs to github. Since our display/media blobs are still based on an Oreo CAF tag, these cause issues with newer P CAF HALs. Next build scheduled for today.
