LineageOS 17.1 Official Builds: Discussion


Recommended Posts

2 minutes ago, tdm said:

The first Lineage 17.1 build has been posted on the official download site.  Please note, I have not really been involved with this version and I am not running it on my device, as I prefer AICP.  I would suggest @EskeRahn create a discussion thread.  I'll probably monitor that in case any issues arise and need pointed out to the current developers.

As suggested...

I falshed mine, with no issues. Starting from LOS16.0, MindTheGapps and addonsu. Downloaded LOS17.1 https://download.lineageos.org/pro1 OpenGApps nano, ARM64, Android10.0 https://opengapps.o

Updated yesterday via sideload with nano opengapps and Magisk. No problems so far, even banking apps with nfc payments are working! 😀

Android 10 seems to present some additional challenges with the external SD card.  With Open Camera, I had to go to "more camera settings" as usual, but unlike with Android 9, I had to toggle on "Use

I was super optimistic and downloaded the two 17.1 files, flashed the loader as usual and sideloaded the zip, over the 16.0 with mindthegapps. WITHOUT wiping anything.

And well the flashing went smoothly, but it did not work.... It seems 'stuck' at the loader screen. I do see the circle move over the blue sad mouth, but it does not seem to move forward from that....

So will repeat the same with a wipe.... (and opengaps - thanks @_DW_ )

From LOS 16 is this LOS 17 a non-destructive upgrade or destructive. I.E. Do I loose my data and settings?

I am loosing mine, but this is a test device. Others will have to answer if there is a way to keep stuff....

Non-destructive, see below

I will probably earn a blacklist entry for all Lineage support but:

I did a dirty flash from LOS 16.0 with MindTheGapps to LOS 17.1 with OpenGapps Nano. And the phone still works 😄

Just had to replace the cLock widget with another clock widget (as already mentioned in post #2).

Accepting a factory reset, things seems to work, except the keyboard.... Currently useless

EDIT: FinQWERTY can make it working on qwertZ too, for the supported layouts. At the least to some degree. Some symbols like @ is inaccessible, unless you use the fake keyboard OR make a language swap with Ctrl+Space to a language supporting @, and then back.

Lineage upgrades should always succeed without wipe, even major versions. This is independent of gapps though, you are responsible for that.

 

Keep in mind that first boot after a major upgrade takes a long time. I would give at least 5 minutes before giving up.

I waited about half an hour or so... After a wipe it booted quickly.
Will try the Pre-production unit too without the wipe, as this got qwertY.

Do we need to remove the mindthegapps while still on 16.0 before the upgrade? Or should installing opengapps in the 17.1 process fix it?

If you sideload, gapps does not migrate, so you do not need to remove anything.

 

I do not believe major updates are distributed as OTA so that path is not possible.

 

I cannot say why your upgrade failed without a log, and that is no longer available I guess.

Done, went super smooth and fast 🙂

IF we got mindthegapps while on 16.0 It seems to be important instead to install opengapps during in the 17.1 process.


(That is as Mindthegapps in this version is not supported on 17.1, we can not leave it there, but have to have opengapps replacing it - as @Wheeljack did above too )

Hi all, I'm back here after about a month. I've downloaded the 17.1 image. Do I also need the 17.1 recovery? From what I read at this thread, I am thinking the answer is no, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thanks

EDIT: By the way. I am thinking of putting the LOS 17.1 image into my sdcard and flashing it from the sdcard via recovery as I'd been doing with the 16.1 updates. Will it work? Cheers

Added the install from sdcard question.

I do not know if you NEED it, but it looks substantially different, so I would suggest so, unless someone can say explicitely that they know you do not need it.

By the way. What keyboard driver is LOS 17.1 using? @tdm 's one from 16.1, the stock one, or the new one that was being developed by @tdm ?

It looks like the one @tdm made, but it seems to be without the qwertZ support...

The 16.0 recovery should be able to flash 17.1.  Give it a try.

 

The keyboard driver in 17.1 is the same as 16.0, as far as I know.  I suspect something is preventing the qwertz flag from taking effect for @EskeRahn ... logs would help with that.

The settings section where we could set the layout and other keyboards options seems omitted in the 17.1

Found it deeply buried in another menu....

Interesting.  The code is still there, and apparently still being built.  @npjohnson do you know anything about this?

Settings ► System ► Buttons ► Extra ► Additional buttons,

It is required - system mounts are handled differently, ROM will probably flash but GApps won't -- just use 17.1 recovery lol.

And yeah, we moved all button settings to, well, button settings haha.
