I installed LineageOS last night because I had the option to go back if I prefer (with a backup).
It works very well!
Not sure yet on the battery usage but its also partly on me.
I had some issues with the Privacy Guard. Although it is a nice feature I had multiple applications spamming for permission even though I already gave permission. Couldn’t exit the dialogues without keeping clicking.
Some issues I stumbled upon. Not sure where to report.
Auto-rotate works in apps (all?), but not Android itself.
Unable to disable either 2,4 GHz or 5 GHz WiFi (possible in FPOS not possible in LOS?).
When changing brightness from the drop-down menu there is a one line artifact of whatever app is in the background. If that’s the settings screen, its likely a white line because the quick settings from the menu remain. If its an application like Firefox or WhatsApp, those quick toggles aren’t there so there is no artifact.
First post here. I would like to join the club. Do I need to install the modem.zip like in the unofficial builds, if I’m coming from FPOOS? Or is this integrated in the LineageOS image somehow?
Thank you all for your effort. It is great that that our phone is now officially supported.
System can be updated just by using the updater (OTA). Su addon is a one-time thing and will surive the update. Same thing goes for Google Apps. Not sure about tingle, but I thing that is also a one time thing (@Roboe).
But as @AnotherElk says, backups are always good, and you’ll need to update modem when there is a update and / or a Google Apps updated zip from time to time doesn’t hurt either. (I only backup my system and update Gapps when a new modem is available e.g. once every other month).
Yep, you need to factory reset. If you backup your data, you won’t lose data. Titanium backup is good for apps + appdata. Don’t forget pictures and such are not in a backup and should be backuped manually. TWRP is only good if you want your whole system back.
Tingle patches the framework.jar file (or framework-res.jar, excuse my memory right now) to inject the signature spoofing feature and permission. That system core library is overwritten on each system upgrade. For obvious reasons (core lib), it cannot be marked to survive OTAs, so the Tingle patch needs to be executed per-installation.
I’m again having the effect that the clock in the status bar does not update. Only after rotating the screen. If i pull down from the bar, the clock in the settings date is correct. This seems to only happen if the phone is running for somewhat longer. Mine’s running for more than 40 hours now
Edit: here’s a screenshot, showing the clock app and the status bar:
