Thanks for this, however using the lastest build, TWRP gives an ERROR 7 when trying to flash. I don’t want to force it and possibly brick my phone.February 28, 2019 at 8:48 AM #74101
I cannot add any kind of security lock not even finger. When I click to enable them nothing happens it just stays right where it is. Please fix this , this is major security feature of a device. Also Google play store not working after flashing from your recommended package. It is just stuck on Download pending.February 28, 2019 at 10:50 AM #74103
Okay now I know why the jio internet network is not working. Seems like the ROM is detecting the sim in slot 2 but I cannot change it to slot one as this phone has only a single slot for sim card and other for SD card. Please if you could do anything.February 28, 2019 at 8:02 PM #74162
Update: Seems like everything I stated in bugs in working now. The problem WS that after booting up it wasn’t prompting me in setup wizard. Also when I first booted , there was this message stuck that ‘Pixel setup has stopped working’. I tried to force close it and all but it didn’t work. So I had to remove Setup wizard.apk from system->priv-apps. After flashing like 3-4 times again and again after some time. On the fourth try after I removed the setup wizard.apk , it prompted me to lineage os setup and then everything starts working. I don’t know why it wasn’t prompting me in setup earlier even if I was following the same steps. Please loom into this if you can.March 4, 2019 at 5:50 PM #74610March 11, 2019 at 2:17 AM #75063
@siba Yes I was doing a full clean wipe everytime. Also I had flashed once more also and followed the same steps I mentioned earlier , removed the setup.apk and it prompted me to setup wizard the 5th time also. I can’t get it why it didn’t prompt me to setup a couple of times in the starting. Right now everything is working fine no issue. Also When can we expect a new update or maybe official tag?March 12, 2019 at 3:41 PM #75194
You cannot expect new builds in a periodic time or so because it all depends on the developer’s time and interest unlike an official Lineage os 16 build.
For an official update you can check the OFFICIAL Lineage OS 16 download page.
I am updating the page as per the support available from Lineage OS team.
