Hello everybody,
I just tried to update to last varotone's version from *very first* varotone's version (which I considered adequate all this time).
Anyway, after upgrading twrp to v.3.2.1.0 (no problem), I did what is described in the changelog :
- wipe dalvik/cache/system
- flash last version
- flash gapps
- reboot

And now my Z2 freezes after the Lineage boot animation. Either after I enter my SIM card pincode (if I enter it fast enough) or while the system waits for this pincode.
Screen freezes, then turns black and the LED is lit (dimmed but on).
Restoring my backup doesn't work (Lineage boot animation never stops).

Are their known ways to recover a working phone?
Thanks in advance.

This must be a kernel panic due to old baseband. Try removing the Sim card, not connecting to WiFi or Bluetooth when first booting. If it successfully boots with all radios off, it is the old baseband causing trouble.

Try updating the baseband.

Thanks a lot.
Fast reply, and good reply.
After updating the baseband things are in a mess (I've tried reflashing, without and without gapps, in the meantime) but at least the phone doesn't freeze anymore.

I think all start over.

Just a short followup.
Everything works nicely now.
Almost all my Google apps crashed (perhaps due to a change from stock to micro -just a guess) but Uninstall/Install on each crashing app solved it.
Still a nice ROM.

I'm running Harsha's LineageOS build and decided to come back here to see updates in ROMs. Is this considered the latest/most popular ROM to use despite the DISCONTINUED status? Major improvements on harsha's work?
Thanks.

If there's interest, I could share my build from yesterday.
January patches included as well as all general upstream updates from LineageOS.

Image upload is not working for me, so I can only post here two screenshots:
Sure there is interest. I would like to see someone continue @varotone s work. May be you can continue the GitHub repository.
