@chrmhoffmann : Thank you very much for your many years of continued work on Lineage for the FP2! For me, this has been a critical factor to achieve the objective of a phone that stays alive as long as (reasonably) possible and, thus, contribute to a (more) sustainable environment.
Regarding compatibility between LOS 18.1 and TWRP: Does the need to work on this currently lie with Lineage or with TWRP? Both? Or Unspecified?
And could you tell if it’s being actively worked on right now?
(Reason why I’m asking: I’ve used TWRP quite often, for a long time and rather liked it. So I try to estimate how likely it is that it will return…)
Hi, when I try to flash LOS recovery and reboot into recovery I’ll get the Android “no command” screen. When holding power button + pressing volume up at this screen again I’ll end up at Android recovery.
Yesterday I switched to LineageOS 18.1 for microG and I know this is for the official one without microG, but they share a large amount of code and I hope to get some help :).
@chrmhoffmann Are you aware of any VPN issues with LOS 18.1? With 17.1 I was able to connect from my FP2 to my FRITZ!Box just fine. This is currently NOT working with LOS 18.1. Any ideas or recent fixes that are not yet integrated in the microG version (which is at 2021-09-15 currently)?
I think I would try to flash TWRP permanent, just to see what happens and/or try last LOS 17.1 build with LOS recovery and then when it works 18.1 afterwards and/or upgrade to FPOS latest Build, therefore you might need to update the updated App first….
Hi, thank you for all the work and the instructions.
It is, however, not quite working for me.
I did flash the lineage recovery as instructed, did the data wipe and installed lineage 18.1 via adb sideload.
There was no error message, but it seems to get stuck upon booting. It reboots into the lineage recovery, telling me to wipe/format my data again, which leads to again getting stuck in booting.
I don’t know what could be the problem, as I don’t get any error messages and the adb sideload tells me that the installation finished.
Tried with and without OpenGApps and with different versions of lineage 18.1, but get always the same result: super long boot and reboot into lineage recovery.
Did anyone try to encrypt their FP2? @chrmhoffmann I get the error Cryptfs : Orig filesystem overlaps crypto footer region. Cannot encrypt in place. I found some comments on this in the forum about resizing data partition, but is there any current documentation what are the most recent and correct stepts/values to do this?
@yvmuell you were right. Looks like I didn’t boot into recovery directly after flashing the LOS recovery. I tried again directly after flashing and used power button + vol up to boot into recovery and it worked.
I think I used shell commands before to boot into recovery.
Thank you very much for the hint and sorry for my mistake here. I must say it was not clear to me how to do it correctly, neither after reading LOS installation guide nor after your post. My bad, but maybe it might help others to be more specific in this case
