    Can you explain to us what's so "updated" about this one compared to the one that's been on xda for months now?

    I fixed usb-otg, added the correct power profile from stock to the overlays since what was there was way off, and a couple other things I think I'm forgetting right now. The security patch is also up to date with the latest of April 5th 2018.

    Some ROMs build and function perfectly with one tool chain while another may give problems.. Sometimes the only reason a bug exists is due to the specific toolchain used

    Thank you, @amarc78! Are you aware of any efforts to build unofficial LineageOS 15.1 for Owens?

    Thread cleaned up. Please report any further instances of troll-like behaviour. But I don't think any more should occur. Thanks.

    Np. Last I knew, seanstar on XDA was working on Lineage 15.1. I was a little, but right now I can't do anything. My wife kicked me out so I'm kinda broke and homeless right now. Unfortunately, I can't plug my PC into my car and my laptop screen is broken until I can replace it, so development from me is at a pause right now.

    Strange how we just assume that anyone with the technical skills to build custom ROMs is working for some Silicon Valley company and contributing to the open source community in their copious spare time. That you could be broke and homeless I would never have thought possible. A PayPal donation is headed your way, as well as all the positive karma I can muster.

    I'm relatively new to LineageOS builds, and I've got a couple of other devices in the queue before Owens, but I'll see what I can do if SeanStar doesn't get there first.

    The XT1776 (Sprint/Boost Mobile) is pretty clearly the best bang for the buck right now when carrier unlocked with a custom ROM like LineageOS. It's a lot of phone for $79.99USD.

    I've never even been to Cali. I'm a redneck heavy equipment operator from NY, with very little college education. I had to stop working recently due to degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I have a couple vertebrae with no disc between anymore, so they are bone-on-bone and I'm in a lot of pain and can't move so we'll anymore. I'm really hoping doctors can do something to get me back to work soon. Anyway, thank you very much for the first donation anyone has ever given me in 4 years of doing this. I did not expect that at all. As soon as I have enough, I'll get the screen from Amazon and get that up and running. Luckily, I'm a self taught PC repairman also.

    You want the 14.1 arm zip. I would recommend using Magisk though.
    Edit: I would wipe data and do a clean install also.

    Install went great... running VERY smooth. Seams to be a big improvement over February's build. Thanks for all the hard work on this.

    Hello - I'm having trouble getting the WIFI-Hotspot working on this build. I can't seem to get it un-greyed out. Is it disabled on the may build?

    Thanks

    I didn't think it was disabled, it was working for me when I had it installed and it works on AEX. Try adding this to the end your build.prop and rebooting:

    net.tethering.noprovisioning=true
    ro.mot.tether_dun_required=false
    persist.sys.dun.override=0

    What carrier do you have?

    SO I have at&t it was working on the Feb build.
    in my buildprop
    I did have the first line

    net.tethering.noprovisioning=true

    The second line, i followed a guide that said to input it with a root cmd prompt. I did that and it did nothing.

    Now when I try to input it using build prop editor on my phone, it wont let me save.

    ???

    Thanks for the response

    I take that back, I seem to be missing

    ro.mot.tether_dun_required=false

    and it will not let me insert it into build prop using buildprop editor
