I want to install LOS 16.0 on my Samsung S5 SM-G901F. According to the LOS installation wiki, I did from an ArchLinux OS:

  • installation of TWRP 3.2.3-0 with heimdall
  • wipe -> format data
  • wipe -> advanced wipe (all partitions were wiped)
  • advanced ADB sideload: adb sideload lineage-16.0-20200106-nightly-kccat6-signed.zip (I tried the 3 last build)

I checked all the hashes and they are Ok.

I observed a progress-bar difference between the TWRP and the terminal: the TWRP announced a 100% progress, while the adb command stopped at 47%. However, after debugging it, I realized the installation script runs entirely.

Finally, when I wish to reboot on the system partition, I get the error message "No OS flashed are you sure you wish to reboot?".

Have you any idea to truly flash LOS? Thank you!

  • wiping ALL partitions is a very bad idea, especially for unofficial TWRP builds where critical partitions like nvdata, nvram, aboot, ... left in fstab. for LineageOS wipe System only

if you wiped all partitions under TWRP advanced wipe. You need to flash Samsung factory firmware because you wiped the framework that the ROM is built over.

  • Thank you for your tips, I was able to install LOS
