In Havoc Settings section Lock Screen try to turn off Pocket detection and Allow FP in pocket mode. I had very similar problem.

thanks for your helping. Sometimes it work, but most it's still delayed. Anyway thanks so much. This problem exists since AOSP Pie 32bit rom for Samsung devices, I think this is a hard problem to solve

I do not know exactly that information.
First - read the OP carefully -

You can find more detailed information on what is a GSI and how to flash it on phhusson treble wiki. You will also find there user feedback about GSI flashing and usage for many devices.

Or read the next topic:
Which variant do I pick
To know which variant to download, use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tk.hack5.treblecheck . Don't use other Treble Check apps, they'll give erroneous informations.
And then, you're free to choose between vanilla and gapps variant.

You're welcome. Also, please let me know if you're able to get Bluetooth in-call sound to work..

I had to revert to Pie because of that issue.
I'll see what i can do in that regard. I use ViPER4Android on my dailys and I've found that bluetooth wouldn't work when i tried to connect to my car radio. I'm guessing now that was a HavokOS issue and not with v4a, I'll see if i can capture a logcat when i try again after upgrading.

    You can find more detailed information on what is a GSI and how to flash it on phhusson treble wiki. You will also find there user feedback about GSI flashing and usage for many devices.
    The basic steps for flashing a GSI are:

    1. Download the GSI from the links above, and uncompress it.
    2. Wipe Data, Dalvik, and Cache.
    3. Remove Magisk if it was previously installed, by using its uninstaller script. Magisk files are stored in the kernel image, and in the /data/adb folder, which are left untouched when wiping data and flashing the GSI. Another option is to flash your stock rom and manually delete the content of the /data/adb folder.
    4. Flash the GSI to system partition (AB devices : flashing a vbmeta.img file for your device may also be required).
    5. Boot and perform a factory reset.
    6. (Optional) Reboot and flash GApps, Magisk, and maybe additional files (see below, GSI Specific Information). If you don't flash GApps with the MagicGapps Magisk module, you may have to resize your system partition in TWRP.
    7. Reboot and Enjoy.

    If you want to update a previous installation of the Havoc-OS GSI, you can also always try to dirty flash, i.e. wipe Dalvik and Cache (not Data) and flash System image. But if you experience a strange behavior, a clean flash may be required.

    @phhusson for its tremendous work on GSIs
    And all the other Developers, Testers, Donators and Users.


    GSI Specific Information

    • SELinux issues: You can try to use this patch, or any other that could work, in order to make your kernel boot in permissive mode. Custom kernels for your device may also help. Incompatibilities exist between ROMs and vendor SELinux policies, that can cause bootloops. Some progress has been made since old builds with improving Havoc's sepolicy (big thanks to @phhusson for giving explanations and pointing me out with the good tools), but some problems may remain.
    • Bootanimation issues: In some devices, the bootanimation itself may cause a bootloop. I don't want to remove the bootanimation for everyone as I find it pretty nice, so please remove yourself the file /system/media/bootanimation.zip.
    • Send logs: this may help me to understand the problem, help you to boot, and perhaps improve the GSI for everyone. To get logs:
      • Do not use TWRP built-in "Copy Log" or "Save Log" function: It saves logs of the kernel running the recovery, not the logs of the kernel running the previous GSI boot.
      • Kernel log: After a trial, reboot directly to TWRP, plug your device, and issue the following command on your computer:
        adb shell cat /proc/last_kmsg > kmsg.txt
        If you cannot plug your phone and/or use adb, you can use the Terminal in TWRP, and issue the following command:
        cat /proc/last_kmsg > /sdcard/kmsg.txt
        The file will be in your home storage place. If you don't have the sdcard folder, you may save the file in /data instead.
      • Logcat: As soon as you see the bootanimation or have succesfully booted, you may get a logcat. Plug your device and issue the command:
        adb shell logcat -b all > logcat.txt
        It will register everything that happens in your phone. When you want to stop the record, type Ctrl-C.
        If you have booted, you can also use an app, like Logcat Reader from the Play Store.

    Bug fixes: Some fixes for long-lasting bugs, or specific version bugs

    Goodies: A few specific improvements, not guaranteed to work for everyone...

    • Automatic Brightness: Flash View attachment enableAutoBrightness-twrp.zip in TWRP. A specific overlay for your device may be missing in Phh overlay collection, for automatic brightness or other features. I encourage you to submit new ones for missing devices. This flashable zip will install the file treble-overlay-auto-brightness.apk in /vendor/overlay.
    • Always On Display (AOD): If you have an AMOLED screen and your device never triggers doze (deep sleep) while in AOD, flash View attachment enableAOD-twrp.zip in TWRP. The reason is the same as above, a missing overlay for your device. This flashable zip will install the file treble-overlay-aod.apk in /vendor/overlay.
    • Hide notch: If your display has a notch, you can enable the cutout controller which will permit to hide it or leave its foreground black (Havoc settings -> Screen -> Display Cutout) by flashing View attachment enableCutoutController-twrp.zip in TWRP. This property is Havoc dependent, so do not submit an overlay that enables it to Phh overlay collection. This flashable zip will install the file treble-overlay-cutout.apk in /vendor/overlay.
    • Smart Charging: If Smart Charging does not work for you, look in the directory /sys/class/power_supply/battery/, and if you see a file named:

    • VoLTE: For Qualcomm based devices (not mtk, not exynos...), you may enable VoLTE by installing the file View attachment ims.apk as a normal application. You may also need to flash View attachment enableVoLTE-twrp.zip in TWRP. This flashable zip will install the file treble-overlay-volte.apk in /vendor/overlay.

    Magisk modules:
    • Bluetooth incall / A2DP issues: If BT incall does not work and your device has a Qualcomm SOC, you may try the Magisk module View attachment GSIBtFix.zip. It implements the method described here and here. A2DP should still work.
      ===> this module should be no more needed since v2.8 thanks to this commit
    • ViPER4Android FX Magisk module: if your device belongs to the following list, you will not be able to install the driver: ali, beryllium, cepheus, cereus, dipper, equuleus, grus, hannah, james, nitrogen, nora, perseus, pettyl, platina, polaris, raphael, sirius, ursa. You can try to install the Magisk module View attachment GSIV4AEnabler.zip which will permit V4A driver to be installed (ViPER4Android FX required).

    ROM OS VERSION: 9.x Pie
    ROM TYPE: Generic System Image (GSI)

    After retributing all contributors listed above, if you still have a few bucks and want to support my work on building that GSI, you can pay me a coffee, I appreciate! Or just drop an enthusiastic comment, I appreciate too...
