Unfortunately as reported by CarlosSprekeslen , Bluetooth fails. as one file went missing probably during compilation or during zipping the rom.

To fix bluetooth

1. Download the attached zip file "Bluetooth_fix.zip" on you sdcard
2. Reboot to TWRP recovery
3. Install the zip
4. Reboot

Follow instructions step 1 to 3 on the first post.
Step 3 is important as it will backup your starOS rom.

And follow modified step 4 below

4: Installation of recovery.

* Run the SP_FLASH tool from the folder you have extract the files by double clicking "flash_tool.exe"
* You will automaically shown the screen tab for Downloads. For "Scatter-loading File" Choose "MT6737M_Android_scatter.txt" in your backup folder "RRemix".
* Make sure the only recovery is ticked for download on the phone .
* Now Power off your lava R1s. Disconnect Mobile from Laptop/PC if connect using USB.
* Click on "Download" button.

!!! IMPORTANT Step.!!!

It will boot into TWRP recovery. Install magisk.zip

!! NOTE !!
After flashing using SP tool in step 4, If you do not boot in recovery the first time, and/or if you do not install magisk, It will make your phone not bootable. And you might have to restore all partition that you backed in step 3 which is very time consuming
