WARNING:

i tried flashing back Lineage OS 9 from backup but it would not boot up and is soft-bricked

i can only boot into download mode and only twrp-3.1.1-2-dreamlte.img works, all other's fail to boot (just freezes on TWRP logo and sometimes flickers black as it re-trying)

when i try to manually flash Lineage 9 it sais "error: this package is for dreamlte. this device is ."

i tried restoring TWRP 3.6 and Lineage OS 19 from backup but it still wont boot (just freezes again)

IT IS NOT BOOTLOOPING

restoring the stock S8 rom that i backed up a year ago with TWRP seemed to fix it, not sure if it has something to do with EFS and/or Baseband partition or some other partition (i has every partition backed up) so i am not sure what fixed it
Yes you have this problem because you have installed the dream2lte version of the rom and your twrp is dreamlte, you ahve to flash both with dreamlte!

I had the same problem with chrome. Now i'm using opera mini, its working without freezes.
Eu também tenho um problema para jogar a impressão de que está congelando, mas não acho que seja isso !, O miracast assim que se conecta à TV, o aparelho reinicia. no entanto, o sistema é bastante fluido.

Translated by GT: I also have a problem to play the impression that it's freezing, but I don't think that's it!, The miracast as soon as it connects to the TV, the device restarts. however, the system is quite fluid.

Amazing work, I know some of this aren't implemented but here is my initial testing of the ROM:

  • Wifi on restart doesn't auto connects, I had to restart wifi for it to work.
  • "Cast screen" doesn't work. It detects my "chromecast" but it stops after I select it.
  • "Heart Rate sensor" doesn't work. Tested with known working app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.macropinch.hydra.android
  • "Iris scanner" doesn't work, not implemented?
  • CONFIGURATION -> SYSTEM -> DEVELOPER -> "Disable HW Overlays" always on by default, otherwise UI lags like hell.
  • CONFIGURATION -> SYSTEM -> GESTURES -> Press and hold power button, to turn on flashlight. doesn't work.
  • CONFIGURATION -> SYSTEM -> STATUS BAR -> Brightness options don't do anything.
  • CONFIGURATION -> SYSTEM -> "Quick pull down" doesn't work
  • Random System UI freezes for a few seconds, ¿oom killer? ¿ram related? I have no idea how to debug this as logcat spams too much info.
  • Video playing at "1080p60fps HDR" doesn't work, freezes video. Tested on Youtube.

edit:
  • NFC not working Snowers96 my mistake, NFC is working.

Hello @Ivan_Meler,

Rom is amazing, it is responsive and fast.
Has said in previous post NFC is not working.

It is the only think that i use the most, mainly for my public transport metro Card.
Without NFC not possible to get into the metro with my phone.

Thx.

I'm super excited to try this soon! Even though I just put the A11 Lineage rom on a G950F. Thank you very much for this cool christmas gift and your hard work. It is highly appreciated.

I have often had a freezing problem when using Google Chrome on the S8+ model. In between, there are instant lags in the interface. Overall it's a pretty good ROM, but since it's newer, I hope there will be an update.

NFC works fine for me by the way.

Hi, someone have news about GPS please ? It don't work to my S8 dreamlte.
It works for me.
I have to enable Location-> Location services -> Wi-Fi scanning. to make it better (in official Samsungs roms it is enabled by default )
you can also check if you have enable Location-> Location services -> Google Location Accuracy

    Is there anyone here who can tell me if the german Bank/Sparkassen app works? It did not work in the LineageOS 18. There was always a message that the phone was rooted. Also the installation of Magisk did not work. And before I flash this Rom I would like to know.
    Thanks for the effort.
    This video helped me for that problem

    @Ivan_Meler any chance of supporting encryption? I've tried to encrypt the phone on fresh install, but it ends up in a boot loop.
    yeah likely will fix it in one of future updates i didnt have time to test it earlier as its real inconvenience to do so while a lot of other stuff was in development

    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM

    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
