Encountering a Bootloop Following the Installation of GApps in Lineage OS

I acquired Raspbian Wheezy by downloading it from this source. I then proceeded to extract the Raspbian Wheezy image and utilized Win32DiskImager to install it. Once completed, I inserted it into the Raspberry Pi and connected the power source. Following numerous discussions highlighting the power supply as a potential issue, I measured the voltage on the 5v pin, which read 4.38V. Given that I was utilizing a 5Amp 0-30V adjustable Lab power supply, I was aware that the power supply itself was not the problem.


After successfully installing Lineage OS 16.0 on my Moto x4 using TWRP, I proceeded to install GApps. Surprisingly, there were no errors during the installation process. However, upon restarting the phone, it gets stuck in the start sequence and after approximately 10 minutes, it reverts back to TWRP. Interestingly, when I only install Lineage OS without GApps, everything works fine. Consequently, I attempted different combinations of these versions in an effort to resolve the issue.

The versions mentioned are
TWRP: twrp
-3.3.1-0-payton and twrp-3.3.0-1-payton.

The builds for Lineage OS are named lineage-16.0-20200219-nightly-payton-signed and lineage-16.0-20200223-nightly-payton-signed.

The following GApps versions are available: open_gapps-arm64-9.0-pico-2020019, open_gapps-arm64-9.0-pico-2020028, and open_gapps-arm64-9.0-pico-20191017.

Could you assist me? Is there anyone aware of what I might be overlooking or misjudging?


Upon initial installation, I discovered that I began in Slot A and successfully installed Lineage. However, after rebooting, I found myself in Slot B. Despite this change, the installation of GApps proceeded without any errors, except for the main issue at hand. When I attempted to revert back to Slot A and install GApps there, I encountered a problem marked as
error code 64


Every time I utilized LineageOS 16, I had to resort to the alternative GApps package suggested by LineageOS, which is commonly referred to as “MindTheGapps”.

Check out this link for more information: https://wiki.lineageos.org/gapps.html.

Please find the MindTheGapps link at http://downloads.codefi.re/jdcteam/javelinanddart/gapps. Additionally, you can access it via the mirror link provided at the same address.

While OpenGApps is also mentioned, I personally found that only MindTheGapps worked properly for me. It’s worth noting that I didn’t encounter this issue with LOS 17, which I used on my OnePlus 7 Pro.
