Question to the admins: I can’t edit/update my first post anymore? Can someone make this a Wiki article if this is still possible? Thanks for that. Everybody can edit the post now. Please feel free and invited to extend and improve it.
I created branches with recent changes from the /e/ device tree (also not merged yet) and created PRs for it. It removes some audio blobs and it fixes the screen lag issue. Scrolling is very smooth and nice now.
I made a build together with the recent changes from @dk1978 which should solve the NFC issue. Of course it also includes general updates in LOS.
As it is not merged yet I called it “Intermediate pre-merge build”
I couldn’t test the clean build without microG because I have my FP3 already in daily use and didn’t want to restore backup etc. If someone tries it, please give feedback if it works.
I faced it at some time in the past. But I can’t remember what I did. Maybe it’s processed after fresh repo init. I guess it only works with LineageOS repositories. We need to get official repos for that. However I didn’t check what is required for that so far. Maybe we’d simply need to ask for it.
Thought I just started trying to build it with a container, according to the README from github. As I’m not really experienced here (ha! ;-)), just for clarifying. When I look at the *.img, for flashing with fastboot, these are way larger than the payload in the twrp flashable zip. Is this correct, or did my build stumble somewhere?
And, as I’m on 0120 actually, do I have to do something with vbmeta.img? I don’t understand whether this is implied by " With generated vbmeta.img it shouldn’t be required to have both slots in successful state anymore" from the README
I will answer with “yes”.
This project is time-consuming, but worth it, and I don’t plan to give it up. By joining the official LineageOS community I expect that we would gain feedback and advice from other experienced devels, so it seems to me like a clear win.
Thank you for your answer, dk!
I’d like to go on testing LOS (because it is the best Android out there).
Is there any backup tool (on FDroid) that might help me restoring the installed apps or their configuration?
Great idea! I never thoght of the backup-functions of TWRP. I only used it to flash.
Well … the only problem I found out was, that I am unable to launch TWRP from fastboot with locked bootloader.
Maybe it works with the installed version …
