Dirty flashed and everything as before, BT and battery consumption to high. Known issues.
Dirty flash only on previous signed releases !!! Not on test builds if u are slack test member.
BT auto was working on an earlier version of 16. I don't remember which. If I knew I would go back. The battery consumption was never good for me. I like 10 and hope for a working BT version.
Those of you who are still using OptLOS 16 version 11, is bluetooth 100% stable for both making phone calls and for streaming media? If not, which version do you believe has the most stable bluetooth?
Is Bluetooth still working flawlessly for you for both calls and music on version 13?
I'm testing OptLOS 17 since 5 days. Previously I was on OptLOS 16 v11, with v12 and 12.1 I lost stable BT. Never tested v13 because changelog didn't talk about BT improvements.
A few users have told me they have stable bluetooth on OptLOS 16 version 8
. I will be testing that build later today. I hope they are right!
ROM has serious battery drain. Suspect related to kernel
ROM+GAPPS battery serious drain even on standbymode (no WiFi n no data). Loss 30-40% in 8hrs. This is what we already kno but
ROM+MicroG also the same. Smth is not right when dropping >30% overnite.
Opt LS 7.1.2 has better standby. Sometime not even drain 1% better than android 9&10
Only on MicroG not Gapps definitely
Many of you know I've been a fan of @side
for many, many, many years! I also highly depend on bluetooth for 99% of my phone calls. After enjoying my S4 for many years, I gave it to my wife as I personally moved up to the OnePlus 5. Recently, my wife has been trying to use BT more for her calls especially when driving. Unfortunately, this has been a frustrating experience on OptLos 16 and 17. After personally testing many builds of OptLos 16 and 17, I can now definitively say that OptLos 16 version 8
has been performing flawlessly for me including stable bluetooth
for both audio calls and media streaming. My wife is finally
happy with her S4 which makes me super happy! :victory: Thank you everyone for your input in this thread and on Slack and a super BIG thanks goes to @side
, the master himself! :highfive:
