LineageOS 15.1 builds broken on Nexus 5 (hammerhead)

It looks like a commit last week to the 15.1 branch broke builds for hammerhead:

ERROR: /mnt/second/android/lineage15/packages/apps/LineageParts/src/org/lineageos/lineageparts/livedisplay/ config_enableLiveDisplay cannot be resolved or is not a field

I’m seeing discussion about this on other devices (, for example) that indicates that this isn’t isolated to hammerhead. It seems that devices that don’t have active maintainers weren’t updated to handle a feature change.

15.1 on hammerhead builds are going to fail until this is fixed.

    I have the same problem to build 15.1 for Galaxy S9+.

    I just rolled back the following changes.

    Now it seems to compile ok. If it really works I will know later and report on it.

    Best regards

    just installed it and all seems to work as before.
    I just reverted the changes manually in the affected files.

    in the end I have deleted the out folder, reverted the changes I commented above and then compiled again. Then it compiled nicely and all worked again 🙂

    Thanks very much for your excellent provision of LOS 14.1 and 15.1 builds, am using my old nexus 5 mostly as a mobile wifi hotspot. Just updated from 14.1 to 15.1 (dirty flash using TWRP) – working fine so far, keeping me connected at 69N 15E.
