LineageOS 14.1 with OTA updates for FP2

OTA update (20170615) available with Chris’ latest kernel patches:

(use Lineage updater in stead of the above link)


My questions about this might to be more suited on the dummy post but because I already have OpenGapps installed, does your comment mean I would be reinstalling it? Also, what does that mean for app data for apps downloaded from the play store?


When updating this release it’ll preserve OpenGapps, so no need to re-flash anything. Only the updater is necessary. Also all app data is preserved. (This is because OpenGapps adds a addon.d-script which LineageOS runs during updates)

When installing this release for the first time, you do need to queue Gapps when you want it.


The OTA update went smooth.
This is really great work.
Thank you so much!

Wow, great! Update went smoothly :grinning:

I can confirm that WiFi Hotspot does actually work now!

I have installed LineageOS 14.1 today following the steps in the first post and so far I am quite impressed. Thanks to all who made this happen!

Since I used an encrypted data partition on FP Open I had to do an additional step: A factory reset and wiping the data partition wasn’t sufficient. Only after formatting the data partition I was able to boot into the new system. @snevas Maybe it makes sense to add this info to the first post?

Changed it :slight_smile: thanks!

@snevas I would format the data partition only in case the data partition was encrypted before (because the current LineageOS version is not able to decrypt the data partition). In all other cases a factory reset may be sufficient (and has the advantage that the data on that partition will not be deleted).

I have installed the latest build OTA. But the automatic (daily) check of the updater notifies me of a new version, that is already installed.
Do you have the same behaviour?

I get the same behaviour on official LineageOS devices like Moto G and Moto E (I’m still running FP Open in my FP2).

Amazing job, thanks a lot :smiley:

If there are new developments regarding OTA updates, you can contact me and I will open the topic again. Otherwise the topic will open automatically by the start of next week.

@snevas better contact me via forum (PM) for open requests. :slight_smile:

I have fixed the issue with the new update available, I needed to change the timestamp of the zips to the builddate for it to not register as a new update. I fixed this for the last release and every upcoming one that will be built.


I have a question regarding porting Lineage to FP (I want to try the OTA-Method coming from FP Open. Why do I have to update TWRP? Can’t I just wipe and flash using the existing TWRP? As I have root, can I use the app, or do I have to flash aswell?

The patch for TWRP is only useful for OTA updates, if you don’t use that patched version, the updater will be rebooting to recovery, but not applying the update automatically. It should hopefully be soon™ be integrated into the normal build at . EDIT: It’s actually already merged but not integrated in a build. So the next release of TWRP should include it :slight_smile:


I just installed Lineage! Thanks to all who realised this. How:

  • Flashed TWRP .img through TWPR and said reboot to recovery

  • Noticed that TWRP hat noch updated. Re-flashed TWRP.img and just shut down system. Rebooted into TWRP directly - TWRP hat updated.

  • Then flashed

Now I just have to “install” the FP ringtone. :slight_smile:
