[UNOFFICIAL] LineageOS 18.1 for the Google Pixel XL

Google Pixel XL

Code:
- Your warranty is now void.
- You have been warned.
- Use at your own risk.

Introduction:
This is my unofficial Lineage OS 18.1 thread for the Google Pixel XL.

Downloads:
Please follow the install instructions in your device's Wiki page linked below exactly, and make sure your device's firmware matches the required firmware listed.
If you don't follow these instructions, or use 3rd party add-ons (like Magisk) please don't expect support here.

Known Bugs:
  • IMS (VoLTE/ViLTE/WFC) is nonfunctional due to incompatibilities with older proprietary binaries
  • Sound Trigger (Screen-off "Hey Google" detection) is nonfunctional due to incompatibilities with older proprietary binaries.
  • Find any? Report them on this thread, and make sure to include logcat/dmesg as applicable.
Notes:
  • GApps are baked in, alongside other Pixel goodies - No, I will not be building without GApps included for this device. These builds are built, packaged, and signed by me, and not affiliated with LineageOS whatsoever. OTA is provided the same way officials would have them.
  • This will likely never be official. At minimum, IMS would need to be fixed, and I haven't cracked it (yet). If you can get IMS working, please contact me, and we can work together!
  • Firmware is shipped in the ROM package for this device, so no need to worry about updating it on your own!

Hello.

Is it possible to update from Lineage 17.1 Official to this build without losing any data and settings? If so, what steps should I follow?

Thank you for keeping Pixels alive.

where the download? I dont see it.
Click the `marlin` link and it's in the wiki page contained in the instructions you should follow ;p
Does this rom show device as a pixel 1? Need it for Google photos unlimited back up at original quality, if it shows a later pixel model it will affect backup
Of course! Like all ROMs should - backup works fine on LineageOS.
What Android Security Patch level does the latest version have?
I build every month within 5 days of the ASB usually. June as of typing this.

Hi. Does this rom have the apn issue that other pixel1 a11 roms have? Basically, apn settings don't persist after reboot.
Also, is there a telegram channel for this rom?

Hi. I didn't understand the issue mentioned by Trebor97. And is that now rectified? I am thinking of jumping onto Android 11 and wanted to be sure before I go ahead. This is my daily driver and it takes about a couple of hours to set up from scratch. Thanks

No that specific issue, but that's no reason to wait, I can just issue an update to fix it when I have time.

Flashed the 0714 build yesterday, everything seems great so far. Thank you @npjohnson for your efforts. I'm going to daily drive this :D

Thanks for your response. But what exactly is the issue? I couldn't understand.
I guess they're talking about the overview selection feature, where you can select text from recent apps. That doesn't seem to be working atm.

    No, you'll need to format data.
