Yeah me too. i formatted "system, cache, dalvik" and reflashed "rom, magisk, gapps"

this time i tried "flamegapps - not worked, mindthegapps - not worked" only nikgapps works for me. i flashed "NikGapps-core-arm64-12.1-20220813-signed.zip" from Canary-Releases, the problem is same.

When i try other gapps, phone will not boot, loop in lineageos animation then reboot or boot into twrp itself.

Edit: i flashed "NikGapps-core-arm64-12.1-20220709-signed.zip" steable release but problem is the same,

Rom not recognise the fingerprint sensor, it identifies the sensor as rear sensor i think. my rear (heartbeat sensor) maybe faulty, because i can not use it in lineageos for a long time, i dont know if the rear sensor defected or lineage os not recognise it!

but the rom not gets my fingerprint sensor (front middle button) get to work.

anyway, we need to @Ivan_Meler 's suggessions. any possible fix will make me really happy.

couse i have to draw pattern every wake up the screen. 😢🤦‍♀️

bye.

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

@Mad Bob Thank you for reply soon.
Here is the error screenshot; NikGApps can install, but BitGapps still crashes. tried one time again. also i removed NikGapps with "NikGapps Remover.zip" via twrp then tried to flash the Bitgapps. No luck for me 😢

Bitgapps:

NikGapps:

Edit; i mount "system" manually in twrp, but error is the same.

Edit-2: in this website, https://www.androidsage.com/2022/05/01/download-gapps-for-android-12l-or-android-12-1/ it says, Mind the gapps 12 should work in 12L sdk32. but it gives similar error. here is the screenshot:

Screenshot_2022-08-16-15-35-12.png


i think; install script still has some compatibility issues.

Try Format instead of Wipe data and try do a clean flash again. Also use the latest TWRP from the official website. Before that make an EFS backup (IMEI backup) with TWRP and store it on an external media just in case things go wrong.

Maybe too late to share my excitement, but i will:
1. EVERYTHING works, from fingerprint sensor, keys backlight, sensors, to banking apps, all without errors of any kind;

2. Battery, my battery life is insane! I have all accounts that any user nowadays has - from 3 emails to eBay and whatsapp, Google and all - but i get at least 30h with 5h SOT with every charge!

No battery saver on, all radios always on, from wifi to nfc, everything on auto sync, push;

3. Speed is crazy, i expected this anyway, but to see a phone that's been in my drawer for 3 years now coming back to such life, is incredible!

4. All goodies available work as they should, from nearby share, to the way my Samsung buds or my car connect to the bluetooth automatically.


Now, all of these things represent my experience, which i am thankful to the developer for.

I have been using my S7 edge as a daily driver for the past 2 months, since i bought a new screen for it (accidentally i bought an Olympian edition screen, which now makes my phone stand out aesthetically as well, not only softwarewise).


I don't take professional pictures, therefore my experience with HedgeCam 2 is absolutely fantastic, considering how old this phone is.

Flash the Gapps along with the ROM. DO NOT flash the ROM, reboot and flash the Gapps. Flash Magisk AFTER installing the ROM and gapps, boot and configuring the system. You can also try using the Gapps recommended by the official LineageOS: https://wiki.lineageos.org/gapps

Mind the gapps Screenshot_2022-08-16-15-35-12.png

This Package is recommended on LineageOS url that you have published. but see the ss it returns error.
Thank you for your reply. best regards.

Update: I wiped system, data, and tried again.

Mind the Gapps: "Could not mount /mnt/system! Aborting" error.
BitGApps: "Cannot mount /system" error.

Not working at all except NikGapps.

waiting for any fix.

Reflash the original Samsung ROM with Odin and try to setup fingerprint. If it doesn't work it must be a hardware problem. If it works, try installing LineageOS again.

Thats not easy way, just noob suggestion. sorry.

my fingerprint sensor was perfectly fine and working just before the flash 19.1 rom. (previous 17.1 by Ivan_Meler) so, its so far possibility that fingerprint sensor should be defected just in time when i flash the 19.1. N/A

i dont think so. i think, @Ivan_Meler friend, will fix these possible issues in future builds.
waiting impatiently.!! 😯😯😯

BitGapps still crashes
Use 12.1.0 version 1.0, 1.1 seems to be buggy for some users

Fingerprint not worked
It would be great to have logcat in addition for video.

8 - Flashed the ROM, (without error)
9. Wipe data and reboot to recovery
10. Flash magisk and reboot to the system
11. Properly setup the magisk and reboot
12. make config file for the bitgapps to install it systemless
13. install bitgapps in the magisk
14. reboot and grant network access for Play Store and Google Play Services in app settings

Well, it worked for me just last week with the latest LineageOS 19.1, bitgapps, magisk and twrp.

    Builds with September security update are out, here is a brief changelog
    - Merged September 2022. Security update
    - Updated chromium webview to 105.0.5195.79
    - Synced with LineageOS source

    Not too many changes as you can see as most of work went towards 20.0 builds which are quite stable already.

    18.1, 17.1 and 20.0 builds will be updated with september security update once security patches have been merged to those branches

    Huge thanks to everyone who supported this project with donations that help cover the build server cost and get me coffee.
    Enjoy new builds and stay safe

    Hello.

    I installed this ROM to my Sm-G935FD ,it seems work wells.

    But there's problem with Drivedroid app https://www.drivedroid.io/#images
    It works well with internal memory.
    But when i try to use external microSD as image directory (ISO folder) it seems Android refuse access.
    probably an issue with the app and the tighter security in this android version.

    there's problem with Drivedroid app

    And won`t work, until they update the app to support Android 11+ security storage policy \ storage framework access \ etc...
    --
    Kind of workaround is to put your files to /storage/SD_CARD_ID/Android/data/com.XXX.YYY/files
    In my case it works only after moving files to:
    "/mnt/media_rw/82F3-1D20/Android/media/com.softwarebakery.drivedroid.paid"

    - 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)

    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

    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
