Official LineageOS is here!

Really great, the 14.1-20171024-NIGHTLY-FP2-LOS-version just landed smoothly at my FP2! Lots and lots of thanks to all you made it possible!!!

Edit: Meanwhile within two days I have had two spontaneous reboots at my phone, just laying around and untouched. :unamused:

Yes, but if you are coming from a recent FP(O)OS, you already have the most recent modem. No need in that case. Later on you’ll need to manually flash modem updates.

Please use the bugtracker to log your issues. I am going to change the status of old issues that are maybe fixed back to retest-state a.k.a. ‘needs info’.

Ok, the battery seems to be quite the same than before. maybe a very little higher drain. but hardly noticeable.

What i have noticed is that the telephone is in general a bit slower. specially when unlocking the screen it takes a second or so to react and turn on the screen.

just wondering what of the steps will be needed for future updates?
su arm addon will be needed every time?
Tingle patch I guess it is needed.

Would it be better to install future releases with TWRP or would it run from the system itself?

TWRP is better of course, because when you are in TWRP anyway you might as well backup the OS state before the update with TWRP, which can not be a bad idea :slight_smile: .

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).

Can I go from Android 6 to Lineage OS without losing my data and app installations?
Does it go out to a complete new installation, right?

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.

Follow these instructions.

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.

Please everyone, admire them for their new shiny LOS badge! :smiley:

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:

Do the other icons in the status bar (battery, network signal, WiFi) update/change while the clock is frozen?

Yes, they do…
It kicked in again and shows the current time. As it looks like this is only happening in the morning, maybe it’s related to my (automatically) putting the phone into airplane mode in the night, from midnight till seven workdays and nine on the weekend…

Edit: no, it happens also in the evening (right, now, for example)

We had this several times with the “unofficial” Lineage already; Reboot your Phone to get mobile data again. And before, send a dmesg to @chrmhoffmann! :wink:

Is it possible to define a preference of APs? Say I can connect to 3 APs, and there is one I prefer over another. Can I define that somewhere?

When this happens please capture logcat, dmesg and logcat -b radio. Then you can reboot :slight_smile:

Sounds like good news :wink:
–> “sounds” because I am not really sure what it means (i guess i do but still) and, more importantly, what the implications are.
It would be great if you could provide some information regarding these two points – maybe in the first post for visibility?

Specifically, people might want to understand:

  • how is the “1st official build” different from the “last unofficial build” – what makes it official?
  • who is maintaining + hosting the OS – is it now in the hands of the lineage developers? or is it still just mainly a single person?
  • is there some kind of “quality control” (not only regarding functionality but also security issues)?

I think these points are really important! – while i am sure that everybody did great work, I will not rely on an OS that is maintained by a single/very few devs. And this is for two main reasons

  • if something changes in the devs personal life (kid born, new job, illness, …) the development comes to a full stop :unamused:
  • (i am hopeful this is not an issue here ;), but still) for a tiny user base like in this case (FP2 Lineage OS Users = some 10s to few 100s tops?) the potential for undetectably pushing some malicious functions to the users phones is much higher than for something like, say, a linux distribution. or, for that matter, FP Open.

It would be great, if you could shed some light on these questions/concerns :slight_smile:


edit: shamelessly summoning @chrmhoffmann, @snevas, @Roboe :stuck_out_tongue:
