Pixel 2/2xl Lineage OS Installation

So I’ve watched the YouTube video of max about installing gsi roms on the pixel 2 line and there he install havocrom. I was just wondering if I could follow that guide but instead of installing havoc I would install Lineageos additional tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks to whoever answers as it’s my first time doing anything like this.

I’m not sure what is included with Havoc but one thing I could say might be different is GAPPS are required as a separate flash install as Lineage does not include it.

Here’s the Link to lineage Install for Pixel 2 (WALLEYE)

Hope this helps! Also the instructions include links to all downloads needed.

Hey mate thank you for your response, so follow up question I’m on the most recent version of stock android would that matter? Should I go ahead and follow the instructions you sent?, Thank you…

Depends. I know currently LineageOS is running off Android 11 build. So if your on Android 11 I think you’ll be perfectly fine. Just makes sure to not skip any steps! Maybe read the whole Install process 2 times before starting?
