    I assume its "GSI" in your first post because it's not running Samsung's OneUI.

    Google Camera 8.3.252.381773168.02 (arm64-v8a) (nodpi) (Android 11+) doesn't open. It just crashes (common with it on random Roms). Google Go camera app: just black and after 7 seconds I hear the camera focus mechanism make a small physical pop sound and the phone starts rebooting.

    What firmware version are you on? I can try using the same version if u had a link and I can report back. To replicate the problem: -Call anyone (or just the answer phone). - while your head is by the earpiece and so the screen is switched off, use your finger to swipe from the top of the phone...

    I tried the new recent version after having tried the original version of this OS. It's a lot better - takes up around 1.6GB of RAM (with NikGApps Core) and boots fast. Issue thtat keeps me from using it as my daily driver is the in-call phone issue - when you're in a call, you can still...

    haha. Yup, I've been with the A40 for a while just wishing there would be some development on it and suddenly like 10 ROMs come from one developer all around the same time! :) Good to have you working on ROMs. What variant would you recommend from the ones you manage (which one you most happy with)?

    All seems to work except an odd issue with the phone app. The UI doesn't appear if someone rings me or if I make a phone call (incomming calls do ring but I can't see the UI to answer for example!). I fixed this by going into the settings for the "phone app->advanced->Select as default phone app"

    The developer can't replicate the issue and not many of us (myself included) haven't provided error logs and such to help them out in all honestly. It's curious what's different to his phone to ours though. Maybe it's something to do where the phone was sold (different variants for different...
