Workaround: turn on your flash before starting the LOS update :smiley:

EDIT: or just maintain volume up during the reboot triggered by the LOS updater…

Seems to be somewhat random. I’ve never lost them (currently running LOS+mG 2018/10/15).

Actually I wouldn’t have thought much about it, as I inexpertly consider Bluetooth a mess along with e.g. WiFi and USB, where unexpected stuff can happen at any time :slight_smile: … but I thought I’d mention it, because …

Who actually maintains LineageOS+microG?

i have the regular version!

But is there a reason why they provided three updates? Should i install the newest? im not sure because there are no changes listed on the changelog…

And me I check this other page, similar to yours but little different :wink:

https://download.lineageos.org/FP2/changes/

However I don’t understand why there were 3 updates in 3 days, as there is no new changes to incorporate…

lineageos.org gave “502 Bad Gateway” just now. Wanted to check if they announced anything about going from weeklies to actual nightlies :wink:

https://www.lineageos.org/ works, though.

Edited to add:

The changelog has a point Nightly + Monthly Builds. so this may explain the nightly builds.
