Browse to folder: /data/data/org.lineageos.updater/app_updates edit: per comments below, this is outdated and the top answer is correct.

I'll supplement the answer of @beeshyams: since Android O is still in Dev Preview phase, the source code is still incomplete, and no custom ROM (LineageOS, etc.) could even base their work off it. LineageOS (back in their CyanogenMod days) also stated time and again that they will not touch Dev Preview code. To reinforce the fact: until Android O is ...

These /data-related errors are likely because TWRP can't decrypt the current /data partition. This often happens with stock ROMs, since TWRP is only made to handle the encryption method of AOSP. To work around it, in TWRP, choose Wipe - Format Data. This will wipe all data from the device, but at the same time remove encryption and allow you to start off ...

Some basics first: NoGAPPS is deprecated and got replaced by its successor, µG (read: microG). µG includes the core (basically, GServices) and also UnifiedNlp. No GService replacements will support the Google License API. That's much too hot an area. While we all love dentists, we better not see them working on us (replace "dentists" by "lawyers" in this ...

Pardon me if I fail to sum up the vast subject in a brief answer :) SELINUX AND AVC DENIALS Android is based on Linux kernel that makes use of Discretionary and Mandatory Access Controls (DAC, MAC) to restrict access to system resources such as files on a certain filesystem. DAC includes classic UNIX RWX file modes, owner/group or UID/GID, Extended ...

You normally don't need to re-flash GApps as most GApps installers will install an addon.d script which restores GApps automatically after flashing a new ROM that supports addon.d (LineageOS does so). If you are using Open GApps (http://opengapps.org/) you are on the safe side.

LineageOS is Open Source OS. Google apps like Play Store, Gmail, Maps etc are proprietary Google products and cannot be bundled with LineageOS due to licencing issues. However, you can always download these Google Apps Packages (Gapps) to run with LineageOS. These come in different flavors, starting with minimal Google services to full fledged suite of ...

I had this problem. I'd half installed Pinyin so continual prompting for a login account. Go to Google play store and search for Google Pinyin Input. When that appeared there was an option to uninstall it (because it had already been installed).

Impossible If Moto themselves did not update your device, there is no way you can obtain an authentic system image. Even when your device is updated, Motorola is very slow to update the latest image on it's website, and you would have to depend on images obtained through unofficial means hosted on sites like XDA Related Security Patch level old on Moto G5

in TWRP go to advanced > terminal, then create /cache/recovery with mkdir /cache/recovery solved the problem for me

If the auto install doesn't work you can go to /data/lineageos_updates and install the update manually. Remember to wipe dalvik cache after flash ends. Updated (thanks to Sup3rHugh): LOS changed the OTA folder from /data/data/org.lineageos.update/app_updates to /data/lineageos_updates.

Every update would fully overwrite /system and carry all history changes, therefore just installing the latest build would sync you up to progress. There will be (rare) occasions where the developer pushed patches that negatively affects the build (e.g. wrong CPU governor causing the phone to lag or heat up). On top of that, Android security patches, which ...

You can download Gapps package for your lineage from this website source opengapps.org. Site contains several fields such as : 1.Platforms: ARM64 - For 64-bit devices ARM64 means the devices that are running 64 bit operating system/processor. ARM - For 32-bit Devices ARM means the device that are running 32 bit operating system/processor. x86 for Intel ...

I rebooted into TWRP and edited /data/system/packages.xml. Under <package name="com.google.android.apps.nexuslauncher" and <perms>, I added the following lines: <item name="android.permission.STATUS_BAR" granted="true" flags="0" /> <item name="android.permission.MANAGE_ACTIVITY_STACKS" granted="true" flags="0" /> When I rebooted back ...

Go to Settings. Click on About phone and then tap 7 times on the Build number. Navigate back, open Developer Options. Tap Root Access. Select Apps or Apps and ADB. Now you have root and Titanium Backup finds it:

OK, so this means that you have an outdated version of TWRP which, apparently, does not correctly report the device model name (it's empty). -- Updating TWRP from 3.1.0-0 to latest is 3.2.2-0 solved this problem!

Eventually, I found a workaround (which is not a fix but it allowed me to continue the installation). Since my device was detected in discovery, I did not used sideload. I just pushed the image to the sdcard with: adb push xxxxx.zip /sdcard/ and then I installed the image from the sdcard directly in TWRP.

Back in 2012, /proc/last_kmsg (1) used to be a dump of kernel console messages, exported after reboots by Android's ram_console functionality (CONFIG_ANDROID_RAM_CONSOLE), which used persistent_ram (CONFIG_ANDROID_PERSISTENT_RAM) to handle a block of RAM that wasn't erased across reboots (2). persistent_ram was based on Linux upstream RAMOOPS code which ...

The right-most way (bootctl) The command to provide this information is bootctl. As root (having run adb root), you can use this like this, $ adb shell bootctl get-current-slot Note this is the slot's number, you resolve that to the letter with, $ adb shell 'bootctl get-suffix $(bootctl get-current-slot)' See also: How can I boot to a specific partition ...

For future reference, choosing repair for /data in TWRP seems to solve bootloops right after encryption. The device stays encrypted. This worked on two of my devices and I didn't notice any data loss.

On a rooted device, it is possible to disable/enable user apps using a terminal emulator. To do so, open a terminal of your choice, enter su to acquire root privileges and then enter pm disable <packagename> Take care to replace <packagename> with the package name of the app you wish to disable (for example, if you wish to disable WhatsApp, ...

S Note is tightly integrated with Samsung's framework and thus can't be ported to non-stock-based ROMs. In the meantime, try Squid as an alternative. Lots of available pre-defined notes, export to PDF, and best of all it makes use of the spare button on the pen that LineageOS doesn't use.

As far as I can tell, Android OS (sometimes called OS + others) is not actually a real application to say. Basing this on one data application I've used it is explained; It is a "catch all" pseudo-application accounting for the difference between global usage (displayed in the main screen) and the sum of all installed applications usages. Initially ...

You should. That is a "clean flash" and is normally recommended in installation instructions. This ensures that the ROM is written on a clean slate At times, like in the case of "nightly" ROMs or some mods to ROM, /system is not wiped but written over the existing system called "dirty flash" (not even /data or cache is wiped) As a thumb rule, switching ...

Even since LineageOS was known as CyanogenMod, it offered a deeper way to manage apps' permissions than the one introduced by Google from Marshmallow onwards. This feature, known as Privacy Guard, can be accessed from within Settings -> Privacy. To restrict it from starting on boot, hold on the target app in the list that's displayed, then find the Start at ...

To answer the question (getting old builds) directly - there are people who foresaw the need and stashed some of the builds elsewhere: 1, 2. As for the reason to it, it's right in their FAQ. The main reason would be to save bandwidth/storage, since the project is a non-profit.

Though you did not (yet) confirm both devices are rooted, this solution might be of interest for those where they are: Following up to our adoptable-storage tag-wiki, you will find a link to How to decrypt adopted storage? Based on that, the following approach seems feasible: From the original device, extract the encryption key file located in /data/misc/...

If you install CyanogenMod 13 then you cannot install lineage OS 14 without wiping the device. If you install CyanogenMod 14 then you can directly install Linage OS 14 without wiping the device, but it is not guaranteed. If you install CyanogenMod 13 then you may install Lineage OS 13 without wiping the device, but it is not guaranteed. Lineage OS web site ...

@timoschwarzer already described the persist function of (most) GAPPS packages, so I'd approach this from a different side: You are still advised to update GAPPS from time to time (in orders of months), due to Google introducing new functions, APIs, etc. in updated versions of their apps, but not doing this usually doesn't affect working aspects of your ...
