After all, LineageOS 16 is the very topic of this thread. I was hoping to keep LOS 16 on my device for a while, not expecting it to be abandoned so quickly. I worry that 17.1 will not work as a drop-in replacement for me due to the absence of AddonSU, which was a nicely integrated and low-profile root-management solution. I require permanent root access for several things (SSH server, Debian Chroot, cross-system file management), but I obviously do not want random apps to be able to su all the time. I read about magisk of course, but it is not an "official" solution and a much heavier application - two facts I worry about in such a (safety-) critical system component. Also -- from what I read at least -- it is much more tricky to install (does not work with Lineage recovery, I guess) and integrates less nicely into Lineage (does not survive OTA updates?). So ... could anyone with background knowledge comment on the future of 16.0? Do I have to prepare for the transition already? @tdm, maybe? Only 17.1 will build now, but you are free to keep 16.0 as long as you wish, and even build yourself when new security updates come in. 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
