    WHAT’S WORKING:
    – Camera
    – Phone
    – LTE
    – WiFi
    – Fingerprint scanner
    – Double SIM card (menu’s – can’t test as I have only 1 SIM)
    – NFC
    – GPS
    KNOWN ISSUES:
    – Not Known

    A couple of remarks though:
    – I can’t set the button actions properly, as there is no menu item for the “Back” button. I like to have “Back” on the left, and “Menu” on the right of the “Home” button.
    Am I missing something here?
    – There are no “Quick Settings” tiles (buttons) for NFC on/off or GPS on/off

    Besides these small issues, Lineage 14.1 seems to be working perfectly.
    Excellent work! Exactly what I was looking for!

    One more remark:
    – Root access in Developer options is limited to “Disabled” and “ADB only”

    Hi Albert, 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.
