    won’t install zip in TWRP for sprint GS6 Error 7, any way to change device identity or release a working sprint (zerofltespr zip file since yours is only for: zeroltrexx,zerolte,zerolteskt)

    This rom is impressive just needs to cover more device models/carriers

    It is risky but you can remove the assert line from the updater-script of the ROM and forcibly flash the ROM on your SPRINT variant of Galaxy S6, if and only if you know that the hardware specification of the compatible devices (for which the ROM is built) are same with the sprint variant.

    I had flashed the Galaxy NOTE 3 CyanogenMod 14.1 ROM on Galaxy NOTE 3 SPRINT variant without any issues by doing the same way. Here is the review of the Galaxy NOTE 3 ROM, which you can checkout for proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8-BAv1K9HY

    Again I am telling you this is risky to do this, it may brick your device permanently.

    About to try this on my S6.. It says above to get GApps. Do I installed Gapps for the S6 with this or the S7 verion of Gapps? ie: Should the Gapps match the phone or the OS?

    The GApps should match the current version of Android you are running on your device. As this Lineage 14.1 ROM is based on Android Nougat 7.1, you need to install GApps for Nougat 7.1 after flashing this Galaxy S6 Lineage 14.1 ROM.

    I have added the Nougat GApps link which should be enough fr you to go but download Nougat 7.1 GApps from the link.

    Will not install on my S6. Tried it from Team Win Recovery v2.8.7.2.

    The errors I get are:

    E:unknown command [log]
    E:Updater process ended with error=7

    Hi Dobly, 2.8.7.2 TWRP version seems to be an older one. Can you try once more with the latest TWRP and see if you can get through ?

    I noticed this release is not on the Lineage Site, is this release stable enough for a daily driver? Or should I wait till its released on the Lineage site as official

    yes, this is an UNOFFICIAL build but the latest build has been downloaded almost 4k times as of placing this comment. You can try at own risk or wait for someone to comment on the working status before flashing this on your phone.

    is this build any good? I updated my s6 920 to 7.0 stock but it feels slow… anyone know when there will be an official version of lineage 14.1 to s6?
