    Hi,

    I ve got an S4 I9505. I ve installed LineageOS-20170120-jfltexx-UNOFFICIAL, open_gapps-arm-7.1-pico-20170127.
    It is working great so far. I ve tried to root the device following your procedure. I have got only 2 options fr Root Access : Disabled, ADB only.

    So why am I missing the 2 others (Apps only / Apps and ADB) ?

    Cheers
    Steph

    ehi! this rom is great!
    however the GPS doesn’t work and google Allo makes a strange white noise when I send a message.
    Thanks for your work!

    Same problem of stephane, 2 options for root. Good but there is a big issue about proximity sensor, it doesn’t work, even if you’re listening to recording on whatsapp or if you’re calling.

    sorry
    after a reboot the GPS began to work perfectly. The only issue is the strange sound in google allo.

    You might know that the SU binary is not accessible on the Lineage ROM by default (at least for user access) from now onwards. Lineage team has decided not to put this onto the ROM but a developer can make it to be there in the ROM out-of-box by building the Lineage ROM with WITH_SU=true environment variable.

    See the Lineage 14.1 ROOT enable guide for more info. Recently I have updated the page.

    Please follow the SuperSU flashing for Lineage 14.1 and see if that helps you to enable ROOT or not.

    I love this ROM but its terrible for battery life.. Not even 10 mins and I’m down to 88% from a full charge. Any ideas if this is going to be fixed in a update soon? Don’t want to go back to my old ROM.. Please fix pleeease!?
