Log: LineageOS on the Essential PH-1 phone


Upgraded desktop to Ubuntu 18.10. No issues building LineageOS 15.1.


I am hoping to get this bug sorted out as soon as possible, and I think it will come to 18.10 faster than 18.04. I suspect it is why I have to plug/unplug phone during install/upgrade.


Added build instructions for LineageOS 16.0 and successfully built LineageOS 16.0


Was unable to upgrade from 15.1 to 16.0 through LineageOS recovery but using TWRP worked.

The Essential camera app crashed when attempting to use the black and white camera sensor. It was possible to launch shortcuts to the video and selfie cams with no issues. Crash logs indicated a confusion in the OS with the availability of the camera. Other camera apps worked fine as they did not attempt to use the black and white camera.

I also had an issue with my USB headset controls failing to always control an app (but I did not investigate that further since the camera issue was a showstopper for me).

To downgrade back to 15.1 I had to wipe my data partition.

Not ready to post this for downloading.
