Unlocking the bootloader

Installing LineageOS from recovery

  1. Download the LineageOS installation package that you would like to install or build the package yourself.

    • Optionally, download additional application packages such as Google Apps (use the arm architecture).
  2. If you are not in recovery, reboot into recovery:
    • With the device powered off, hold Volume Up + Power.
  3. Now tap Wipe.
  4. Now tap Format Data and continue with the formatting process. This will remove encryption and delete all files stored in the internal storage.

  5. Return to the previous menu and tap Advanced Wipe, then select the Cache and System partitions and then Swipe to Wipe.

  6. Sideload the LineageOS .zip package:
    • On the device, select “Advanced”, “ADB Sideload”, then swipe to begin sideload.
    • On the host machine, sideload the package using: adb sideload filename.zip
  7. (Optionally): If you want to install any additional add-ons, adb sideload filename.zip those packages in sequence.

  8. (Optional): Root your device by installing LineageOS’ AddonSU, (use the arm package) or by using any other method you prefer.
  9. Once you have installed everything successfully, run ‘adb reboot’.
