Note: I need my daily driver phone in this working 15.1 state for the coming week at least, so no such 16.0 tests just yet :wink: .

Updating LineageOS 15.1 for microG via TWRP + feature test

So, if I want to update to 16.0. Is this possible with twrp 3.2.3-0 ? or do I have to use twrp 3.3.0-0 ?

does encryption with lineage 14 + twrp3.2.3 work in lineage 16?


So far I only installed 16.0 from scratch … no problem with TWRP 3.2.3-0.

Currently not. You can install LineageOS 16.0 on 14.1 encryption, but it doesn’t boot afterwards and only offers to reset the phone.

Details are here … behaviour is the same with the first 16.0 build for microG.


I installed LOS 16.0 over LOS 15.1 via recovery (from the MicroSD-Card) without any problems yesterday.
So far I haven’t experienced any troubles. Is there anything specific I should check?


thanks for this clarification :slight_smile: So I’ll try to make a backup and install from scratch. maybe anyway not the worst idea to have a new clean install.


Definitely. Amen to that :wink: .


Upgrade from 15.1 without any problem (installation via twrp recovery, system, data and cache deleted). Many thanks to the developer section! :+1:


Just to understand well: What happens or is it working with the following steps:
I come from lineage15.1+microg

  • Saved my pictures etc on computer
  • Backup data partition
  • Wipe everything
  • Install Lineage16+microg
    -restore data partition

Do I have all my apps etc back in this case or will they be broken or cause any other headache?


after upgrade from 15 to 16 Sim Card does not work. :slightly_frowning_face:

Edit: Battery was at 12% and despite the power saving mode, the battery was down to 0% after 6 hours. After switching the phone on while charging, I was able to activate my SIM card again. Maybe the phone was too hot after the upgrade and led to these malfunctions?

Otherwise great work @chrmhoffmann :slight_smile:


here everything works fine :slight_smile: just that restoring the backup doesnt work … :frowning:

And: It’s no longer possible to adjust vibration intensity… very annoying. In 15.1 it was at least possible for typing.
