@T1mb3 Thanks for your efforts, very much appreciated! One more question though: Are you and Georg even monitoring the issue tracker over at GitHub? I'm just asking, cause none of the open issues for Dumpling are getting commented by or assigned to a dev. Is it the best option to always report here in the forum?
I can only speak for myself, but I do check it periodically. Reason there's multiple open ones is that it's very difficult to fix issues that aren't reproducible on my devices (because I can't test the possible fix).

Anyone got google pay working? Even though my device is not rooted and BL is locked, i cannot add any cards to google pay.
Search this thread for exact instructions. To use Google Pay, you need to get SafetyNet to pass and sadly that will need use Magisk (yeah root) and use a fake fingerprint. I have not had any issues with Google Pay since moving to LOS 18.1

Did anyone ever find a fix for the issue of touch events sometimes not registering? I remember plenty of people reporting it when 18.1 first came out, and it still happens for me. It seems to mainly affect the home app. I use Nova, but there were no problems in 16.1, which I ran for a long time. I think the touch misses started with LOS 17, which I used only briefly before 18.1 came out.

and this morning, the battery is so depleted it won't turn on - had ~ 30% at bed time and no open apps, but on switching it on there was the lightning icon and zero residual; the circle of charging is still hard at work well over half an hour later which i presume means the battery is really empty - it still won't turn on yet

that's a new experience for me - why the rudely rapid drain ?

it's a bit of a worry as this is my alarm clock on the days i work - but not if it's not charged

is the 2nd latest version of los (i think, i can't read it on the phone) :(

edit : forced reboot shows 80% battery after ~ 1hr on charge... no idea why this all occurred, but will report back if it recurs

meanwhile, updated to the latest nightly 20211012, so watch this space !

This rom's dialer has call recording feature but you have to manually start recording every time you have a call.

Is there a way to automate it so it automatically starts recording whenever a call starts?

Hi, I'd like to use this rom with oxygenos stock apps. What changes needed to be made in build.prop to make them available on play store?

@T1mb3 :
Hi

I've always had a problem with the camera app with this rom: on the first shot the app freezes for a few seconds and then runs smoothly.
The problem occurs with both the stock app and other apps.

I've done many tests and hard resets but... I always get the same results.

What could be the problem?

Thanks

thanks

I have understood that it's a bug in the cameral blobs provided by vendor, so nothing to do about it.

on the latest iteration of 18.1 (20211026) and the previous iteration, i don't get any ring tone for duo calls, although the messaging function makes the default notification sound for that ap

i can't see anything set to silence it, and normal calls ring with the selected ring tone

the actual calls work fine; being aware of them incoming is problematic

is this the same for others, or do i need to allow the ring tone fro duo somehow that i haven't (con)figured ?

thanks for any clarification

Hello,

I'd like to use custom ROM for the first time on my OP5T. Can some good soul tell me if LOS 18.1 meet my requirements?

I hope I don't have exaggerated needs:

- functional Google Pay and NFC (I've never used Magisk to fix SaftyNet and I don't know if it's easy to set up without troubles)
- same photos quality or better than stock ROM - is there a stable GCam build for LOS 18.1 that doesn't crash all the time?
- battery life close to stock ROM or better,
- high security - is it possible that with unlocked ROM and root (for Magisk), someone steal my data by accessing TWRP? I mean without knowing my phone's passcode/password? In general is it easier to hack phone's data with unlocked bootloader and LOS 18.1 installed on it?

Thanks,
Maciej

i'm using the latest version at 18.1 and the camera is faultless wrt function - i have the stock camera that comes with lineage, and also procam (which i prefer) and open camera; there is no issue with any of them in my experience, noting i have the 8gb ram model of 5T in case that has some influence on reliability

battery life predicted on light use is ~ 4 days; standard work day with lots of calls uses under 50% but i am not a constant browse /text / game user, so ymmv

how that compares to stiock i can't say; my phone was brand new old stock, and i jailbroke it within a few days of receiving it, as i prefer lineage to any other flavour and have done for over half a decade now i think

nfc and google pay aren't on my agenda, so sorry, no info there

you can password lock twrp, but my paranoia (and poor memory) makes it easier to leave it as is and concentrate on not losing my phone - there's nothing on it that would be useful really, as i don't use mobile devices for anything critical like fund transfer / banking

hope that helps

beware that you will need to fiddle with windows to get the bootloader to work for fastboot to perform the initial jailbreak:

    FYI:

    1
    I performed a factory reset/wipe of data, and then in LOS recovery it has an option to wipe the system partition and one to wipe the cache. The cache is done when I choose the factory reset/wipe of data. Would doing the wipe of system data mean I need to reflash a recovery?

    I did try MindTheGapps but sadly I get the same result. Currently, I'm running the last build of 17.1 and a PICO version of GApps that was released before the OS.

    system partition is where as name suggests system files (what LOS would be going to put up) are. Cleaning this might remove any problematic files. Wiping system will not remove recovery (recovery gets its own partition). Also I'm sure you know this but you do need to flash gapps before booting the system.

    So I would suggest doing this.
    1. Boot to recovery
    2. Wipe data + system
    3. Sideload LOS zip file
    4. Sideload MindTheGapps
    5. Now reboot to system

    In case you somehow remove recovery, you can boot recovery temporarily using the img file from fastboot.

    Hello,

    I'm wondering why you recommend specifically MindTheGapps ?
    Is there any advice against https://bitgapps.github.io/ for instance ?

    Thanks!
    Most of the early LOS18.1 builds were tested against MindTheGapps as opengapps was not ready at that time. First time heard about bitgapps. Is there something really special about those that MindTheGapps or Open Gapps don't offer? Those are system applications that have higher permissions, you should only get those from very trusted sources which MTG and OpenGapps that LOS recommends and tests against. Will BitGapps work? Maybe. Should you download low level system apps from random or new sources? Probably not.

    U sure? Even if it's not rooted it won't pass "basicIntegrity" to use GooglePay with NFC? I think I don't need to pass ctsProfile to use GooglePay. Correct me please if I'm wrong.
    Some roms make modifications to pass safteynet without Magisk, LineageOS doesn't do this.

    For Google Pay to work you need to spoof your device fingerprint to that of an official Android 11 rom. I'm using a fingerprint from the official Android 11 OnePlus 6T rom on my 5T. (The Magisk Hide Props Config module has a database of fingerprints you can choose from).

    Google Pay will not work for me without doing this, however you are welcome to try for yourself. Without passing safteynet and having an official Android 11 fingerprint Google Pay will fail when adding a card, or making a payment if you already have a card setup.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review.

    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
