Hello
First and foremost thanks for the dev for the development progress
I will be taking part in testing this as much as I can


I wanted to inquire if anyone else has their Wi-Fi disconnected at random, mostly if the phone is left laying with its screen off

I noticed it as it interferes with music streaming
But then again, it could be an issue of my S7 Edge...
Hello,
I also have random disconnection from wifi :/.

It's not very frequent but i've also noticed it...

First of all – thanks for the ROM! =)
And now some tricky questions:
1) If there is a way to add AVIF (image) system support? Because it should be already present with Android 12, but it won't work even with apps specially build to support it. Found something like this. Still can wait for A13, there are no rush =)
2) I noticed that the best camera experience can be archived with HedgeCam2. Can it be useful while tweaking the default camera app for our device? And also add some new formats to save captured images \ video (AVIF, AV1, RAW). Even if they are software transcoded afterwards.
3) Just curious, but does android have a way to add codecs into the system like Windows or Linux? Or our only way is to use apps with build in codecs like Simple Gallery, VLC, etc.?

do you get "failed to start camera preview" with hegdgecam when using the flash?

Something like that, only when the option “Pause after taking photo” is enabled.
Took photo with auto flash, it opened with mentioned option. Trying to “go back” and app just crashes.
With “Pause after taking photo” disabled – everything is just fine, in all Flash modes: auto, enabled, torch.

no, I had installed LLoydq android 10. Also camera does not work properly. If you have this rom , what is your camera app ?

Thanks for reporting it too

I wonder if a logcat would be useful for the dev?

After it disconnects I have to turn off and then on the WiFi networks as it displays that "there are no WiFi networks nearby".
I also have some WiFi issues, sometimes the wifi speed became extremly slow and sometimes it just randomly disconnect.

Did you try OpenCamera ?

Just tried another thing: swipe instead of “back”. Now got no problems with camera app =)
p.s.: I returned to stock, used the latest TWRP and only afterwards flashed ROM. Magisk 23, MicroG.
Everything survived a few OTAs from June. Can't tell the diff, except better audio quality)
AOSP was terrible. I used Google camera ( doesn't work front camera) and open camera. But it is not seem a original.
You could try Hedgecam2. Just don't forget to enable Camera2 API (Settings→Misc→Camera2 API).
It becomes WAY better in comparison with stock camera and OpenCamera.

I will try it. But ı did not like the open camera and hedge cam because of the UI. Google camera better for UI except the front camera problem.

New build is up, here is a brief changelog
- Merged July 2022. Security update
- Fixed more keystore issues
- Synced with LineageOS source

Also some important news, Exodusnick decided to provide huge help and he bought and shipped s7 to me which should be here next week, so all of exciting updates i talked about last week should be way easier to achieve and this will make testing and developement a lot easier, Once again huge thanks to him.

Also big thanks to donators that helped to cover build server cost and got me coffee which helped to keep this project up and running.

Thanks to this s7 should live for few more android releases without any major issues. and Android 12 will get even better with new hals that are curently in developement

There will be updates to 18.1 and 17.1 in a few days once july security updates have been ported to them

Enjoy new build and stay safe

Scary Story Time.

I want to raise some awareness about a bug I just saw since Lineage don't accept bug reports from unofficial builds -- the "Night Mode" is a safety liability: be very careful about using it. This is on the latest June build, not the July build, but I doubt this was fixed.

I had been using it for a few months now all well and good but there's a beyond-critical defect with it where, after reboot, the screen decides to simply fade to black and refuses to return under any user action until the Night Mode ends (and perhaps it's rebooted)? Rebooting again just repeats the bad experience.
Last night during the night mode hours, I rebooted to check if a network issue was with my phone or the service provider and suddenly it faded to black and it responds to absolutely no input at all.

It had turned my phone into, effectively, a brick.

I sort of "needed" my phone so this was a really bad time. I was forced to find another phone entirely for the moment.
When I settled down to try to fix it, I did find a solution.

For anyone that gets stuck in this situation, your options are basically:
1. Wait until your Night Mode ends (hopefully you remember when that is) (and potentially reboot then).
2. Hold Volume Up, Home, Power and reboot to recovery. Power off your home WiFi and remove your SIM or else what we're about to do will be reset immediately on boot when it connects to a network time pool. Connect an adb shell and run `date -s ${LATER}` where LATER is some time hours from now (hh:mm) and then `hwclock -w`. Reboot and it'll be "day" to your phone -- don't connect to any network and go turn off Night Mode.

One of the literal worst Android bugs I've ever seen. Stay careful and -- unrelatedly -- thanks Ivan for the latest updates!

    here it is August security update
    Nothing major in this one as i am still working behind the scenes on that huge update i talked about previously which involves rewrite of almost whole graphics and media stack (its almost finished but i still have to do a bit more testing just to make sure there is no regression)

    In other news android 13 should be released next month and since there were no major changes s7 should be running it soon after release with not too many issues and ill try to take a few days off from work to get it up and running on it once source is out

    Once again huge thanks to everyone who supported this project, helped cover build server cost and got me coffee with donations.
    This project wouldnt be alive without them as i do this in my free time as a hobby.

    Enjoy new builds and stay safe

    Another quick progress update since im back from my trip
    One of bigger issues with new rebased hwc source has been fixed (I fixed it and tested fix 2 days ago actually but didnt post anything about it) and rest of the issues have been logged

    This just leaves 2 issues related to scudo in new OMX stack and 2 or 3 edge cases in hwc stack
    after that new and improved source will be ready and it should bring quite a bit of improvements to s7 on aosp

    Big thanks to everyone who is helping to cover the build server cost and coffee spent on this project.

    Hi, friends @Mad Bob @Ivan_Meler,
    A little Update from my experiences;

    Here is screenshot which package flashed or not;

    Note: (also the last one "BiTGApps-arm64-12.0.0-v1.1_signed.zip" not able to flash. it gives error) i just forgot to mark it with cross

    View attachment 5686643

    Before i begin the flashing nothing, i flahsed latest twrp 3.6.0 and updated recovery.

    I downloaded OpenGapps from: https://sourceforge.net/projects/opengapps/files/arm64/test/

    and BitGapps from: https://www.pling.com/p/1864363/

    non of them worked for me. maybe i am wrong or not. (dont know, excuse me if i was wrong)

    I downloaded "NikGapps-core-arm64-12 (www.droidthunder.com).zip" From: https://www.droidthunder.com/gapps/

    And Only that worked for me (After Format Data - Clean Install).

    What a happiness to see my hero2lte runs with Android 12. :giggle:
    :giggle: Thank you @Ivan_Meler and thank you all. 👏👏👏👏
    It`s mandatory for bitgapps 12.1 arm64 (others won`t work on our device) to be flashed only after a clean install, as said in it`s Documentation)
    p.s.: i use systemless install via magisk (with formating DATA after LineageOS installation) and got zero problems)

    couse i have to draw pattern every wake up the screen
    Start with pin + fingerprint. It should work fine. Than add the Pattern and check again.
    Got zero problem with fingerprint with pin on this ROM.
    p.s.: hero2lte, S7 EDGE

    can i upgrade from lineage os 17.1 (by ivan_meler) to this version ?
    Honestly, you could make backup and try, but…
    if i came from 17.1 am i going to format "data" or not ?
    If you are performing clear install – it's best to format Data. Otherwise – try a dirty flash After making a backup.

    1) Make backup to SD card and logout from everything on phone (especially google account)
    2) flash the latest stable official ROM and update it (if possible)
    3) flash the latest TWRP ⇒ format data ⇒ reboot TWRP ⇒ wipe everything except External storage
    4) put the Latest: Lineage OS 19.1 ROM and Magisk to your SD card
    5) Flash Lineage OS ⇒ wipe Data ⇒ reboot TWRP ⇒ install Magisk (rename “magisk.apk” to “magisk.apk.zip”)
    6) boot into the system (better without the SIM card and any internet connection)
    7) make some basic settings to suit you
    8) reboot ⇒ rename magisk.apk.zip to magisk.apk and install ⇒ reboot
    9) now you should be choosing between: gapps\microg and system\systemless installation.
    1) get the app
    2) choose: 12.1 version; arm64; configuration file – check only “Enable systemless” – ok.
    3) download config file and only After that – the BiTGApps
    4) BiTGApps should be flashed via Magisk
    5) reboot and have fun)
    0) click “Hide the Magisk app” in the Magisk settings
    1) open Magisk ⇒ enable Zygisk ⇒ reboot
    2) install this and this Latest modules
    3) reboot

    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)

    Make sure gapps you decide to use support android 12L/12.1/Are targetting api level 32
    Also make sure you are using latest official TWRP before installing rom older versions do not have proper android 12 support

    If you want to use Magisk use latest Magisk Beta (25.0) or Magisk 24.1, there is bug in 24.3 that was fixed after its release that prevents zygisk from working on some devices with 3.18 kernel

    Well here are some progress update of whats happening behind the scenes.
    Ive given 4.4 kernel from 8895 another go and got even further in porting it to 8890 devices this time around.
    Mali drivers are ported so is decon (display and graphics stack is up)
    I also managed to port audio drivers, buttons and their backlight.
    UFS storage drivers were somewhat pain but i got them to work too
    and there is tons of small stuff like fp sensor,thermal driver and misc

    Tho im not sure it makes too much sense to do this as 4.4 kernel is eol too at least it has full bpf support which i got working on 8895 devices
    Other than that there is not too much going on right now, There are few selinux policies that will have to be dealt with and im still dealing with audio config
    tho i could only notice echo and not robotic voice some people noticed so that leads me to believe it could be related to weird modem missmatches

    I might release another quick build this month with few audio related improvements
    No etas as i do this in my free time, And as always thanks to everyone who supported this project so fat as thanks to them this project and device are still alive on latest android version even 6 years after its release (fun fact s7 series was announced on 21. feb. 2016.) so this is somewhat of a s7 birthday update on progress

    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
