Reading the comment about the guy getting audio files from stock rom to improve sound on LOS16, it made me wonder why can't we just get all the drivers from stock rom as well for camera, wifi, bluetooth etc and everything else?


Dosent work like that especially with samsungs camera frameworks, talks a different language as to what lineage OS does, however ive found not all frameworks,binaries & libs use samsung source as some are able to interact with lineageOS.

Bt and wifi ive not checked for driver compat but ill see if switching out drivers will and libs as such will make any difference.

Hi,
I have another issue. I just installed this ROM with Root and GApps pico, everything seems to run great. But when I receive a call, the screens stays black and only the title bar shows up. No buttons to accept the call and nothing to see whos calling me. As soon as the caller hangs up, the home screen shows up and I can see for a short time that the buttons for the call where there, but hidden behind that black screen. When the display is already on I get the little window with the caller's name and the buttons. The problem only shows up if the screen was off at the time of the call.

I wiped everything before the install except the external SD using TWRP 3.3.1-0. I even tried to only install the ROM withour Root or GApps, but the problem persists. Any idea how I can fix this? Thanks for your time!
Maybe something to do with screen overlay?
As for me I don't seem to be having this issue.

I was running it for 1 month on my G930F just fine until my screen went black (I noticed as I got called), couldn't do anything but to reboot the phone. When I did it went into a bootloop. Am now reinstalling it via TWRP. The same thing happened to me on the day I first installed it. Is there any fix/solution to this?
I am using a SM-G930W8 and I don't seem to be having this problem I reinstalled the ROM yesterday

Hi there,

Thanks a lot!

This ROM works great on G930F! Fast, good battery drain and until now no crashes or bugs noticed.

I do noticed one thing: bad camera quality. I read almost every topic about it, tried many camera apps from playstore and also a lot of different apk's, like GCamMod (IDan). Even the newest Google Camera v8.2 keeps crashing. Changed the settings like they advised. Problem: I am used the the 4K60mod and now pictures are very noisy at night. At daylight it is acceptable, but not as good as 4K60mod with Android 8. For daylight pictures the Footej camera app works the best for me.

I think I read almost everything about it, and tried everything. Am I right, or is there a solution? Or do I really need to downgrade back to Android 8 to get the most out of the S7 camera?


Please use a new version of GCam like UniXcam or IDan.

With LineageOS 16 and Android 9, Wifi via WPS is not been provided anymore due to security matters/issues.


Yup. You should definitely disable WPS on your router.



-The WiFi alliance really messed that one up. They have a bad reputation. Theyve even screwed up the latest WPA3 WiFi security after WPA2 aes was cracked back in 2017. Check this out:

I have the latest Build installed, and enabled extended boot menu in developer options.
Unfortunately Reboot to Bootloader does not work.
I expected this will reboot to Download Mode, but it will restart System.
From TWRP, this works as expected.
Is this a (known) bug in LOS?

Are there any sound modifications for the Galaxy S7 that may give more power to the sound output?

A notification alert sounds on maximum like the same alert on medium at stock rom.

By the way, I have installed the module for stock modifications (e. g. dual spekar sound mod, see few posts before).

    New build is up, making this a first exynos device to have working hwc on aosp pie. build has been tested against previous hwc issues which were present last time it was enabled and such issues werent present in this build,

    Also gotta say im really dissapointed at this comunity at this point, Some of you clearly dont understand i do this in my free time which i might not have sometimes due to work and other stuff i have to deal with in personal life and i do this for free just to help comunity (Hell i even cover server cost), so you cant demand anything i said i would post build when i get time which is right now, and worst of all im only person working on this device so if i wasnt working there wouldnt be aosp pie or oreo for that matter so if any of you feel like complaining again you can just go and use any other rom from here

    anyway here is an short changelog
    12.05.2019.
    - Fixed HWC
    - Updated kernel to 3.18.139
    - Updated vendor security patch to match (Latest at the moment samsung decided to drop support for monthly patches on s7 so they update it every 3 months now, we dont use a lot of blobs from stock anyway so this is non issue)
    - Updated system security patch to may
    - Enabled quota support on /data (Make sure you are on latest twrp)
    - Misc performance and stability improvements
    - Synced with LOS source
    59
    new builds are up, here is a brief changelog

    - Updated kernel to 3.18.140
    - Updated rom to June security update
    - Updated prop. binaries to May security updated
    - Removed unused gralloc usage bits flag
    - Misc performance and stability changes (bsp side)

    new 15.1 builds will be out soon (Well as soon as june security update gets merged into lineage-15.1 branch)
    thanks again for being grat and supportive comunity (for the most part haha) and i hope you enjoy this new release

    And here is a little behind the scenes of whats going on with development right now
    I managed to get 4.14 kernel to boot on the s7 (serial console as of right now so it didnt boot to gui)
    what does this mean? this means longer support for the device, performance improvements and better security
    When will this be available for others to test?, Unfortunately not so soon as i said it only goes to serial console (thru uart) right now
    and pretty much everything is broken just getting it to boot was a big step and ill try to get thing with that kernel sorted during summer

    Also i would like to thank everyone who donated as it helps with the server costs which also helped with progress that will hapen, this rom will never
    have exclusive group for donators like some roms and it will never become one of those paid roms a lot of people started releasing
    But as stated previously donations are greatly appreciated as they help with keeping everything running
    59
    So a progress update on Q, I have booting build i got done earlier today but i want to finish up few things before posting it, as for lack updates i got sick of this comunity as some group of users are really disrespectful and well being only person that worked on aosp while others just take work and do it for profit while i spend time and money on build server expensses and reverse engineering stuff and stuff just didnt sit fine for me (I cant really build on other peoples servers either as i have parts of bsp source that is private and i dont want to leak as i could get in legal trouble, and thats the reason why rom has fully working hwc amongst other things) As for surprise i decided to postpone it until i release q because it would be picked by others minute i post it anyway

    And well thanks to everyone who donated earlier as i do this non profit (Unlike some projects on these forums) in my free time and those donations help offset server cost a bit, ill try to post q builds in a coming week
    58
    Got a new screen for my s7 egde yesterday so here are new builds (Oreo builds are coming in few days)
    And here is a brief changelog,
    - Updated rom to July security update
    - Updated prop. binaries to June security updated
    - More hwc improvements UI should be even smoother now
    - Source code side cleanup
    - Improved reliability of nfc
    - Misc performance and stability improvements

    As of camera ive isolated the issue and i am working on fixing it right now its related in handling of hal1 in some apps like facebook messenger and most of apps under facebook (instagram whatsapp ) and few other social media apps, there is a way to force those apps to use hal1 to stop lag but that has its own issues as of now so i didnt include it in this build, should be included with next one together with a big surprise for a lot of people here

    Once again i would like to thank everyone who donated in past as it really helps to keep build servers running, I do this in my free time free of charge so any donations to project are welcome and help to keep servers running , Also expect a big surprise in a few days because something big is on its way that you probably wouldnt expect on s7 just yet
