Please read what I have said in the OP Its literally in bold red text..
Oh, sorry. I just never use the stock android OS on any of my phone since the very first one. Always have been on Cyanogen/LineageOS. I don't know what feature is specific to Lineage or not. My bad.

BTW, great job man for keeping this phone up to date :)

Hello, thank you for the nice rom.

But there are some bugs in settings.
- Pure black switcher doesn't work.
- In the Brightness slider settings "show always" doesn't work

OK..I have Google Play, Google Play Devices and Google Play Services for AR all fully selected so that all sub elements are ticked and the bar (at the top of each if the Google's...) is fully across...I also have the Magisk App hidden...
Don't forget to add Google Play Services (without AR).
Clear Cache (for all of those) and Data (at least for Play Services) and restart the phone.

:( Stuck on Lineage boot screen, keeps reinitializing. (wiped and installed everything as it should)
Lineage 17 didn't work for me either. Lineage 18.1 worked.
EDIT: After a complete wipe, including DATA, finally instaled 19.0
You need to install TWRP 3.5, version 3.6 is buggy on Android 10

I have made this account, just to comment on this rom and thank Ivan for all the work. It was a bit slow the first couple of days, but now it's working really smooth and I love it. Feels really good to be up to date with an older device.

For me personally the only thing that it would made it perfect is a working status bar brightness slider, because it's a bit cumbersome to double expand the menu to get to the brightness slider. Other than that, flawless experience so far.

Let's get this man some more coffee. I will donate on 15th when I get payed. Ivan, do you maybe have Revolut QR code or something like that, because I'm locked out of my paypal and cannot use it? An alternative would be great.

Thank you for all the great work.

    There might be few more updates in the coming days if i find anything device side that needs improvements as i have to stay home anyway so might as well do something productive

    enjoy new build and stay safe

    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

    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.

    - SW codecs

    Not Working
    -


    Keep in mind that some LineageOS features have not been completed yet this is not a device bug and please do not report those
    in this rom thread, also do not post bug reports for known issues or bug reports without proper
    a) Logcat
    b) proc/last_kmsg (or proc/kmsg)
    c) data/tombstones
    d) dmesg



    Install gapps right after installing the rom itself don't try to boot to system before that if you want to use gapps (Or wipe data before installing them)
    NikGapps, BiTgapps and FlameGapps were tested and working tho BitGapps and FlameGapps performed better due to more up to date packages

    Make sure you are using latest official TWRP before installing rom older versions do not have proper android 12 support
