    Hello,
    I’m new to the forum. If I install this ROM, will I have OTA updates?

    Does this ROM have the same problem as the official one having APPs with malware/virus?

    Thanks and good job.

    It is possible that the ROM might be a test build and might not be booting at all.

    Hi @ All,

    Unfortunately I have the same problem as above.
    I have successfully flashed TWRP 3.1.1.
    Everything was fine until flashing Lineageos 14.1 from above link.
    TWRP started the flashing procedure, but then stopped soon, throwing an error: could not find Digest file.
    Error: 255.
    As shibaa987 posted above, I flashed x64 TWRP: https://www.needrom.com/download/twrp-15/. This is a previous version, but if it works, no problem with that…
    So again I tried flashing Lineageos 14.1 anf´d again the same thing…
    X32 TWRP didnt start at all. After a few seconds, the device bootet into stock recovery.

    Does anyone know what Error 255 means and what about that Digest file???

    Hope we get this problem resolved…

    Regards, Benny
