Very keen to finally install a custom rom on my ageing stock standard s7...

I had the same Problem after the first reboot. Just flash twrp again using heimdall, then everything works fine again

There seems to be an issue with build.prop. I increased volume steps there, restarted and nothing has changed. The same method is working in LineageOS 18.1.

Samsung Galaxy S7
Upgrade was smooth from 18.1 with Nikgapps R and Action Launcher.
Flashed latest TWRP - 3.6.latest;
Wiped system, cache, Dalvik but not data;
Installed zips lineageos 19, Nikgapps S full, Magisk 23, all in a row, reboot system took about as long as expected.

All apps data, wi-fi passwords app PINs, hotspot and launcher settings kept, although permissions for all apps seem to be reset to default, but Magisk SU permitted apps kept.

Nice and smooth phone calls are fine but I hate, HATE that wi-fi and mobile internet are in one quick settings now requiring and extra step to get wi-fi networks list.
Haven't tested music with The Good Headphones yet but will :)
Thanks to @Ivan_Meier as always

PS any f2fs support for cache or system and exFAT for ext_sdcard?

    Not constantly on my device, so that it's really difficult to say which factor causes the echoes in a specific situation.

    Well here we go first build of the year, andquite a big one while at it
    Here is a brief changelogbut there are a lot more changes you will discover in this build

    - Merged most of previously missing LineageOS features
    - Misc performance and stability improvements
    - Synced with LOS source

    Updates for Android 11 and 10 should be out next week

    About camera, As some of you might be aware camera tends to crash afterprolongued use, Im investigatinga fix for it but due to nature of issue itself it might take time
    to figure this out completely and what the best way to deal with it is.

    Andfinally huge thanks toeveryonewho supported this and other projects of mine so far as they help me cover the build server cost and get me a coffee with their donations, 2022 marks 5 years since release of s7 and im glad i can help in keeping them alive on latest android version with latest security updates
    Hope you all had great holidays, Enjoy new build and stay safe in 2022

    Just wipe Cache and Dalvik. TWRP offers that automatically after install is finished.

    I always install rom+gapps+magisk, but I think gapps and magisk actually have addon scripts so they will survive updating and reflash is not actually necessary? But it's so easy to add the zips to queue and that method has always worked. :)

    @Ivan_Meler this is an excellent ROM. You should push this to official status, I can't see how this ROM is any worse than the official LineageOS versions? And enjoy your coffee. :)
    There are some issues preventing it from going official mainly the fact we are using some hals compiled from Samsungs Exynos 8890 BSP source which is not public, and lineageos doesnt allow use of non public bsp source officially sadly
    3
    So, after two weeks of running my S7 with LOS 19 as a daily driver here are some thoughts:
    1. The OS is smooth as butter. No glitches no problems with UI, phone doesn't hang.
    2. Battery life is awesome given it's not a new phone (1,5 days on one charge! That's better than my iPhone SE 2020 on iOS 15.3)
    3. Phone calls quality is great, no echoing, sound is clear both on my end and on the caller's
    4. The camera app seems to be quite laggy, but I installed another one and all is fine (not a big issue given I don't shoot with phone that often)
    5. One drawback is that I can't configure GPay (rooted/modified phone but maybe someone has a solution for that) but still I do carry my wallet with me so...
    6. Apart from the one above all apps run perfectly fine no problems with notifications.

    All in all thanks to this update I really start to think about ditching iPhone as a daily driver, and keep it as a device for testing iOS apps at work, and coming back to Android. Thank you very much @Ivan_Meler for this ROM.
