Guys, which camera pp are you using with the ROM? The standard stock one, are something else?

The camera already in the Rom is a custom one maded by Sultan, and is working good.

If you need something different you can try Arnova8G2' s GCam, with a simple search you will discover lot of links for the Google Camera Port, so you can choose which version to install(read carefully the various instructions on installation and settings).

I'm unable to make phone calls because when the network changes from LTE to 3G, it defaults to the wrong band. Is there a way to permanently set it so it'll change to the right bands?

Honestly I guess I can't help you with that, have you tried to change something in sims settings? The first thing that comes to my mind...

Yep I change the "preferred network type" to LTE/WCDMA but then it doesn't stick and it'll change to something different next time.

Same here. It is annoying how many phone calls I miss because it doesn't automatically change to 3G when I am receiving call. As said, phone calls can't also be made when on LTE.

Security Research Labs just came out with an interesting presentation about whether ROMs (they focused on vendor ROMs, of course) actually include all the patches they should, given their claimed security level. They also published an app for checking this, called SnoopSnitch:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.srlabs.snoopsnitch

So, I grabbed that and ran it on this ROM. :) It reports the claimed patch level as 2018-03-05, and reports 140 issues patched, 56 as 'test inconclusive', and 1 as 'patch missing'. That one is CVE-2017-0592: https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2017-0592 , which is rated 'critical', so seems like we'd want it to be patched.

Any idea if this is a false positive? Upstream LOS issue? Or ROM issue? Should we report it somewhere?

Thanks!

Hi, I guess is bettar if you tag the developer for this kind of things...

I'll try that and see if it sticks. When I was sleeping, it automatically changed to CDMA so no 3G connection again, meaning missed calls and text messages.

Edit: Still having the same problem. When it changes from LTE to 3G it continues to default to the incorrect network mode. Even after setting it to the same network mode as you.

After some more testing this weekend, I figured out the 3G network issue I've been having with this ROM. Running stock OxygenOS, I had no issues all day today making calls or text messages, since those functions only work on the 3G band, specifically the WCDMA band. However when I run this ROM, the SIM settings would default to a band that didn't involve WCDMA, thus giving me network issues.

This ROM is very good that I can't stop to use it.
Also, can add OMS support? I think it is a useful feature, too.
@Sultanxda Look forward to next update. Thank you to give us many good ROMs, Kernes and more.

Apologise to my poor English.

@Sultanxda As you won't be developing your LineageOS Rom with Kernel for OnePlus smartphones anymore (which is obviously sad news, but you have your reasons and thats fine).

How likely is that you will develop your LineageOS Rom with Kernel for future Pixel/Pixel XL smartphones in the future ?

I don't think I'll be building ROMs anymore. The stock ROM on the Pixel is a lot more polished than LineageOS and is very nice. I think I'll just stick to kernels in the future.

That's fair enough. Hopefully a Sultanised Kernel then to compliment its Stock Rom, would be nice if possible :)

Edit:

All the best and thanks for your efforts with your development since the OnePlus One.

    This is an unofficial LineageOS 14.1 ROM for the OnePlus 5T. This ROM comes with a highly-customized kernel, as well as some other very custom modifications.

    Custom kernels are not compatible with this ROM. I will NOT provide support if you install a custom kernel.

    Changelogs for each update can be found in the 2nd post of this thread.

    ROM features:
    • Based off latest LineageOS 14.1 sources (root access is NOT included)

      -Manual shutter speed control (1/5000th of a second up to 50 seconds)
      -Manual ISO control
      -Video HDR mode
      -Antibanding control
      -Exposure control
      -Denoise control
      -Face detection
      -HDR
      -Many other manual controls
    • Many other misc. performance and stability improvements under the hood

    Kernel features:
    • Rebuilt from the ground up using the latest Nougat Snapdragon 835 base from Qualcomm (CAF)
    • Removed lots of excessive bloat (improves security and performance)
    • Improved stability (several bugs not listed here have been fixed)
    • WireGuard, a next generation secure VPN tunnel (more info)
    • DASH charge
    • Passes SafetyNet bootloader unlock check
    • Dynamic CPU input boost driver I wrote myself (makes the phone feel smooth without destroying battery life)
    • Reduced display power consumption
    • Improved touchscreen processing latency
    • Improved audio jack detection
    • CPU underclocked to 1958 MHz by default (you can disable this; read the FAQ for more info)
    • Custom thermal control driver I wrote myself (features 9 thermal throttle steps; keeps the phone cool)
    • Westwood TCP congestion algorithm (enabled by default)
    • No placebo patches, features, or dangerous compiler "optimizations"
    • Many other misc. improvements not listed here

    Installation instructions (for first-time installation):
    First, perform a backup of your existing setup, and then perform a clean install (wipe /data and /system; TWRP is recommended). Next, try flashing the ROM and see if it installs; if it installs without any issues then congratulations! Now just flash a Google apps package, Magisk if you want root access, and then reboot.

    If you get an error when trying to install the ROM ("dumpling.verify_modem" error), then go to the Firmware link in the Downloads section and flash the firmware package. Once you flash the firmware zip file, you can install the ROM.


    Installation instructions (for updating to a newer release):
    If you are already running this ROM, then you can update to a newer version of the ROM via the built-in OTA updater or by simply dirty-flashing the new ROM build without wiping anything. HOWEVER, do NOT reinstall Google Apps after installing a new update.

    FAQ:

    1. Why did you underclock the CPU?
    Answer: At the underclocked frequency, the amount of heat generated by the CPU is quite a bit less, so the CPU is throttled less often (leading to a better user experience), and battery life is better as well. The performance difference while underclocked is also not really noticeable unless you use a benchmark application.

    New build is up with some small but important bugs fixed. The OTA updater is working now too.

    Huge props @Sultanxda, ROM is awesome, buttery smooth.

    2 minor quirks:
    1. Oily paint effect is visible on pictures taken
    2. 1080p and 4k recording is jerky...

    Van Gogh himself is in your camera, painting your images. /s

    Camera is currently not that great because OnePlus devs made a horrible mess of things and they don't want to cooperate in helping custom ROMs fully utilize the camera. EIS isn't working which is why videos seem jerky.

    I'm not very satisfied with the camera right now (and @zx2c4 is even less satisfied with it), but coming up with a solution will take time (probably months). So the camera will be a long term project.

    @Sultanxda are you considering unifying op5/op5t? loved your rom on the op3 and want to keep using your rom
    Same here, would love to use Sultans rom on OP5. We would be forever grateful if you could make this happen :D

    When I started working on the 5T, I thought about doing this. However, there are a lot of differences between the 5 and 5T that make making a unified build very ugly and painful, so I decided not to do it.

    I think he doesn't like the OP5

    He definitely does not like the OP5.

    Does it have face unlock? Just asking

    Yes, face unlock is supported and is functional.

    This rom works great. But I did find an error. When I press on Smart Lock in security settings my phone does reboot immediately.

    I don't have this issue. Did you flash some sort of mod?

    Trusted Face doesn't work either. That can be set up, but I can not unlock my phone.

    Trusted face works for me.
