Android Oreo 8.x Discussion

Oreo

So... Before one year, we were excited about getting "Nougat" and now we're talking about "Oreo" Isn't amazing?
I decided, again lol, to make a new thread about the new version of Android. I read the last few comments in nougat thread but I think will be more organized and clear if there is a new thread about it. For now, we only have one rom - Unofficial version of LineageOS but I have a good feeling about this. Soon, when everything becomes, one idea more stable, the rest will follow . I will try to keep updated this thread with everything around Oreo

PS:
Currently, I'm completely stock so I didn't test any of the stuff below. As always, do a backup before you try anything.

Notes:


I see google play and service not working? Why?
Quote:

Flash gapps right away you flash the ROM. Then you shouldn't have any problems.

I have a problem with gapps. What should I flash?
Quote:

Use ONLY pico or nano and you won't have any problems.

What about PiP (Picture in Picture)? How do I use it?
How to remove the annoying notification about running in background apps?
Quote:

Simply install the app Hide "running in the background" Notification from play store.

My system partition is 1GB instead of 3GB How to fix it?
Quote:

Go to recovery TWRP - Wipe - Advanced Wipe - select System - Repair or Change File System -Repair.

After Oreo rom my M8 longer detects my sim card, What could be the problem?
Bugs you may meet in Oreo: Some users report that those things don't work, or may happen to you:

-Video recording ---> Works ONLY with Footej Camera
-Memory Card Bug
Each time restart phone it asks for setting up memory card which never goes away. The simple solution for this headache is to pause the notification for 2 hours by swiping notification.
PS:
Advice 1:
This may help CLICK
Advice 2:
Format your SD Card as Internal memory and you won't see any notification.

-Black screen while listening to music and trying to unlock the phone or simply when to try to unlock it
-HTC Duo Camera. Don't ask about this feature.It doesn't work on any LineageOS/AOSP based rom. Stock rom and GPE only.


PS:
Make a backup before you try anything.Need to be on the last version of the firmware (Marshmallow), and use the last version of twrp recovery - 3.2.1.0 to avoid any issues.

When I bought this phone I knew perfectly well about spending too much money but today after more than 3 years I continue to be convinced I have spent my money well. In part I have this to this great community and to these wonderful developers .... welcome Oreo.

Last night I tested LOS 15. I can't belive how fast is it and smooth. It's even faster than Nougat. I even was wondering to try to stay with it xD But then random reboots start happening so ... I guess we will wait a litte bit xD Anyway my point was it's look very promising and its very good for alpha .

I wanted to try oreo, but I'm a bit worried about system partition resize.
https://forum.xda-developers.com/htc...t3669070/page2 - posts #11 to #13

So I wanted to ask - If I get bored of oreo then I have to just flash my current rom(ice 8.2.2.) and then restore the nandroid backup or else restore will fail?

In TWRP go to WIPE then advance, select only SYSTEM then select repair or change file system menu. In this menu select resize partition, swipe to resize. Completed, main menu reboot - recovery

Your system partition back to normal .. you can restore your backup or install ROM

You also can do this right after you installed Oreo & gapps before you reboot. Later once you get bored, no need to repeat the process, simply restore backup or install other ROM
