I’m happy to see that rovo89 did a lot of work in the past six month,

and finally upgraded my Galaxy S5 SM-G900F form CyanogenMod 13.1 to LineageOS 14.1.

I was still waiting for the Xposed Framework, to get a really specific control over my apps with Xprivacy…

All you need is to check out your actual device-os version and the Xposed Framework, thanks so far to rovo89!

Root LineageOS

The LineageOS Team decide to have an extra ‘addon’ zip-file to flash for those who needs to root thier phone…

have a look in

TWRP update

There is a new version of the TeamWinRrecoveryProject(TWRP) you should use for installing LineageOS.

Xposed Framework

Xprivacy

Xprivacy is a modul of the framework, you can download and install it over the Xposedinstaller app.

Boeffla Kernel

I’m still using this… cause it’s nice !

User experience Lineage OS and Xprivacy

Turn Linage OS app power management off for those apps who have strange crashes after going in to a “sleep” state.

To get out of this situation you have to wipe cache and dalvik/cache in twrp, that was helpful to get those apps start again…
