Okay. :slight_smile:

Update Installed via custom TWRP 3.2.3 … although currently no luck with encryption.
TWRP 3.3.1-0 (Releases) seems to have trouble with encryption in general.

  • lineage-16.0-20190708-microG-FP2.zip (Changelog)
    • Security patch level:
      up to date (Settings - Security & location - Trust)
      5 July 2019 (Settings - About phone - tap on Android version)
    • Vendor security patch level:
      out of date (Settings - Security & location - Trust)
      1 April 2019 (Settings - About phone - tap on Android version)

The following things work for me so far:

  • call / be called
  • send SMS / receive SMS
  • internet via WiFi
  • internet via mobile network
  • location
  • compass
  • screenshot
  • main camera (new module) works correctly with Open Camera, stock camera App not checked, didn’t operate the flash correctly last time I checked.
  • main camera (new module) video recording
  • selfie camera (new module)
  • selfie camera (new module) video recording with stock camera App not checked, worked correctly last time I checked, Open Camera records only black if surrounding light is too dark or changes into too dark while you move.
  • USB connection to PC / MTP
  • alarm (no alarm sounding with volume set too low.)
  • MyPhoneExplorer 1.8.12
  • Root access (Settings - System - Advanced - Developer options - Root access)
  • USB OTG
  • WiFi hotspot
  • Bluetooth (data connection, music playback … pairings survived the update)
  • FM radio
  • weather (Yorecast with my own OpenWeatherMap API Key, Weather Widget)

Just a FYI. With LOS 16 + microG + latest TWRP I did a clean install without encryption. Then I enabled encryption. LOS updates work, flawless (not in the very beginning). The only issue I got is that I need to mount from terminal + OTG + USB key if I want to install say Magisk. Cause for the life of me I can’t find the sdcard mount point (if it even exists). In the past I needed to do the same for the LOS update.
