yes, but why watch a 1440p video on your phone...... its about as smart as watching a 4k movie on a dinner mat.....useless

The S7's screen resolution is 1440x2560. So, it's capable of playing back 1440p content. As to you question of "yes, but why watch a 1440p video on your phone": That's not for you or me to decide. This device is capable of 1440p playback and if it's not doing that properly, something is wrong at either end. If you use that mantra, why do any of the things here on XDA? It's a complete waste of time. Your phone works just fine out of the box... see?
Besides, I can see the difference of 1440p and 1080p content on my S7 Edge. I much prefer 1440p.


Have you tried video playback at 1440p?

Hardware video playback acceleration may be the culprit. AFAIK, it hasn't been implemented yet.

    Offline charging partially broken

    phone off -> charger in -> battery icon with flash appears, but does not show charging animation and you have to hard reset device to turn phone on. Phone still charges however when off.

    I can verify this, it is such a PITA, the sensors turn the screen off, buttons still get presses. I am constantly turning on the torch, turning bluetooth on and off, turning wifi on and off, deleting things from the home screen etc with my ear while talking.

    This would probably explain why it seems my phone just randomly mutes me. My jaw bone hits the screen where mute is.

      More progress updates from Pie
      Mobile data is working now
      Gps is working
      All of the sensors are working
      Mobile calls dont drop randomly anymore
      MTP (and usb in general) is working
      OMX is working

      Camera is still broken and ill focus on fixing it before release everything else i tested so far
      was working

      Also note that im doing this in my free time and i dont get paid for this so please try not to rush me and message
      me asking me about ETAs its quite irritating and i dont care if X or Y device got aosp, As s7 is only device with this cpu
      and you cant compare it with devices that used same cpu as countless other devices, Thanks for understanding

      Also ill probbaly be releasing few more 15.1 builds before it goes official with minor bug fixes

      I would also like to thank everyone who donated in past as it helps with covering build server hosting

      Another progress update, Here is gps actually managing to find satelites without crashing a phone or stuff, But before next release i have to improve time it takes to lock onto satelites and fix tethering as something broke it and im still looking into cause

      Yet another quick progress update, Rebase on top of samsungs oreo drop is almost done, Kernel is ready I also updated BSP source, I just need to figure out few things about new blobs as samsungs implementation is kinda weird and i dont want to publis build that might be less stable than last one

      While I'm still working on new oreo blobs (New build should be out really soon now i really dont feel like
      releasing something that i consider unfinished)
      here is a new build that is still based on old source but comes with a lot of improvements and new los features + security patch

      31.05.2018.
      - Added auto build fingerprint/description fixup function (This can replace safetynet fix) (Only works with OREO bootloader)
      - Enabled SdcardFS (Improves flash memory read/write speeds, Not only sdcard)
      - Revamped audio hal (Stability imporvements with audio/bt audio)
      - Added custom livedisplay that looks better than previous one
      - Stability improvements
      - Synced with LOS source

      Also once again really sorry there has been some delay with gps fix samsung made a lot of changes in oreo and they changed how a lot of stuff works and as i said earlier i really dont want to post something that might be unfinished
