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?
@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 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 twrp.me . EDIT: It’s actually already merged but not integrated in a build. So the next release of TWRP should include it
When I download the OTA update I often get a ‘Verification failed’ error and the update fails. A reboot usually resolves the issue and the update is installed without problems.
Is this a known issue? Am I doing something wrong?
Huge thanks again to all the people who brought this awesome OS to the Fairphone
