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!
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
There is a new version of the TeamWinRrecoveryProject(TWRP) you should use for installing LineageOS.
Xprivacy is a modul of the framework, you can download and install it over the Xposedinstaller app.
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…
I was happy to see that the world uses my download link of CyanogenMod 13 latest version over 230 times since December 2016
I will keep it there for you need, but for daily you are recomeded to install LineageOS it’s the successor and up-to-date!
