    This ROM update process requires few guides to be followed and few files to be downloaded. Everything referred in the below guide is provided in the above downloads section.

    1. Make sure the phone is running on stock Oreo or Pie firmware.
    2. If the phone running on Pie formware, flash the DSP img zip file using existing TWRP

      – By now your phone must have an unlocked bootloader to proceed with other steps. If not, unlock the bootloader first and proceed ahead.
      Make sure to use the TWRP provided in above downloads section or any system-as-root configured TWRP for HTC U11
    3. Download and Copy the LineageOS 17.1 zip file and the LineageOS 17.1 GApps to your phone.
    4. Boot into the TWRP custom Recovery to install this LineageOS 17.1 custom ROM build.
    5. Format data from TWRP (this is required when coming from stock firmware!)
      If running on HTC Sense UI, then format the data partition to decrypt it. THIS IS IMPORTANT. DON'T SKIP!

      This will delete all your data on your phone. You may consider taking a complete backup of your phone data or take a backup of all relevant partitions.

    Hello and a big thank you for this work!

    But I have a problem, my phone loops on the lineageos start screen.
    I formatted the data well.
    What can I do?
    For information I come from lineageos 16.1 and I made a backup. So no problem for that. But I would like to go to 17.1 :)


    Have you installed on Oreo or Pie firmware and flashed the DSP patch before flashing LineageOS 17.1 on your HTC U11?


    Thank you for your response, and forgive me for my English.

    I installed this version LineageOS17.1 on LineageOS16.1
    I put the lineageos17.1 zip file on my SD card. And after wipe data I installed lineageos with twrp. Should we still do ADB with the same file but from the pc?
    Thank you !
