Głównie mam na myśli ich sklep bo muszę zainstalować dwie identyczne aplikacje ale jedna musi być podpięta do ich konta chodzi o płatności

@Ivan_Meler
Once more, thank you for this new version delivered to our S7. (y)
I would have a specific question for you as the father of all LOS ROM for the S7:
I am not that much after the lastest version of Android, I just like having something working. Updating LOS usually means getting fixes and improvements so this is why I have always been tempted to get newer versions.
I am wondering if the latest builds of previous LOS versions (let say 18.1, 17.1, 16 and 15.1) are all supposed to have reached the same point in term of battery life or camera quality? Or could you say the 17.1 should have better battery life? Maybe you managed to tweak the camera quality more on 16 than 17.1 and 18.1, etc.
In short, could an older LOS version lead to a better overall stability? Or should we always look for the last version as it is the one most likely to gather all the fixes you came with over the years?

Well u need to OEM unlock in the first place anyway; i just dont think i did an IMEI partition backup, not sure what thats used for; but everything else ive done correctly (and even incorrectly in previous custom rom installs)
According to the instruction posted above:
"If IMEI is lost during a flash, phone won't be able to reach cellphone networks."
Not sure if that happened in your case, but as you reported your SIM not being active, this was the first thing that came to my mind.
With the second problem (no access to SD card) I have no clue so far. Is there a message in statusbar asking you to configure SD card for internal or external use? Did you remove SD card during flashing process? Are you able to access SD card through TWRP and possibly mount it there?

Are you reffering to the official playstore? Don't you have it or aren't you able to download and install through playstore?
Those are two different issues and it would be helpful if you could give some more details in case you're looking for help.
Do you have other google apps installed? Which Gapps package did you use for installation? Are you running Magisk and have it hide from system within Magisk itself?
------
Czy masz na myśli oficjalny sklep z zabawkami? Nie masz go lub nie możesz pobrać i zainstalować przez Playstore?
To są dwa różne problemy i byłoby pomocne, gdybyś mógł podać więcej szczegółów, jeśli szukasz pomocy.
Czy masz zainstalowane inne aplikacje Google? Którego pakietu Gapps użyłeś do instalacji? Czy używasz Magiska i ukrywasz go przed systemem w samym Magisku?

The access to the SD card is a weird one; the stock file manager seems to work fine, but installing the one I use and like, when it sends a message to grant access to teh sd card it complains that it cannot grant access to the root folder because of privacy. The app is called File Manager from File Manager Plus (very original, i know)

I'm using total commander. When first trying to access sd card it is asking for permission.
Did you try: App manager -> File Manger Plus -> Memory and Cache -> Empty cache & Memory Content?
Otherwise maybe take a look at the granted permissions to see if one is missing there.
There is also an option (I think it's in dev options) to allow access to sd card for other apps. Maybe check this as well.
EDIT: Yes, it is in dev options. You need to unlock access to sd for all apps.

I was roaming around the permissions options, couldnt find a way to grant it- and i completely reinstalled the app a few times, same issue

So access to sd for all apps is given in dev options?
Just in case: Enable dev options by tapping 7 times on build version in the "About phone" section.

Anybody here already tried to add a module to magisk (either by installing from magisk or from internal location)?
To get my banking app (tan generator, not banking app in general, this one is working without any issues) running I wanted to install riru. magisk said installation was successful and wants to restart. But module isn't showing up in installed modules.
Should root access be only given to apps and not adb in Magisk superSU options?
EDIT: Weird...after re-installing Magisk within Magisk itself, modules can be installed now. Safetynet still fine,

Expected you to be aware of it, but I always have others in mind who are probably reading this later and don't have that level of knowledge.
True....So if i try another install attempt and do an EFS-only backup; can i reapply this backup on the new ROM? Or will that give issues

Do you have a backup of this device when it was still working that you can restore? Otherwise doing an EFS backup now with your phone not being able to connect to the cellphone network doesn't seem to make any sense to me.
Honestly I never had to deal with restoring EFS partitions. I did a backup of this partition before flashing LOS 19 the first time. Because I messed up at a later point I repeated a clean install but without EFS backup, which also worked fine for me.
Another silly idea: Did you check the tray which contains your SIM and sd card? Maybe it is not sitting the supposed way (although the tight space doesn't seem to allow for this).

    And here we go as prommised, new build with improved in call audio quality and June security update
    - Merged June 2022. security update
    - Merged June 2022. pixel feature drop (SQ3A.220605.009.A1)
    - Improved in-call audio quality drastically
    - Addressed few more selinux denials
    - Improved general stability and performance
    - Cleaned up source
    - Synced with LineageOS source

    Once again huge thanks to everyone who supported this project, helped cover the build server cost and got me a coffee, this project wouldnt be possible without support of the comunity and s7 wouldnt still be running latest OS with latest security updates over 6 years after launch

    18.1 and 17.1 builds will be out over the coming days
    Enjoy new build and stay safe
    19
    New update will fix in call audio quality
    there was a weird bug in audio hal that was causing it.

    Big thanks to @Bujiraso for playing with props and audio configs which at the end lead me to finding bug in audio hal.

    Now im only waiting for google to push June security update source so I can start compiling builds and release them
    16
    New builds are up here and via ota
    - Fixed issues with keystore present in a lot of bank/secure apps like binance
    - Fixed issue where setupwizard would crash when adding fingerprint due to bug in keystore
    - Cleaned up patches required for build and removed unneeded ones
    - Synced with LineageOS source

    This was one of hardest things to track down and it prevented some security related apps from working, big thanks to everyone who supported this project and got me coffee (This took over a month on and off time to debug and figure out, one of weirdest error caused by googles keystore changes in android 12) and thanks to those who helped cover the build server cost

    Enjoy new build and stay safe
    11
    I havent posted an actual progress update in quite some time so here is some behind the scenes.
    • HWC And most of display hals will be updated and open sourced
    • Keystore will also be looked into a bit further to see if there are edge cases left where some secure apps break
    • OMX again without going into too much details we will see some changes on that end and it will be open sourced
    • Camera, well ill just let this one be a surprise for now since it will require most work
    There is a lot more going behind the scenes and some of those changes will take some time (Keep in mind i do this in my free time so i really cant talk about etas) but in general once most of those chanegs are up 8890 devices will be in perfect condition and once Android 13 source is out it won't take too long to get it working.

    Some other small notes since s7 i use to develop this rom on has broken screen (i use scrcpy to mirror screen on pc)
    feel free to send me message with any good deals you find on 8890 device be it s7 s7 edge or note fe

    And finally HUGE thanks to everyone who supported this project and helped cover the build server cost, thius project really wouldnt be possible without them, They also covered the coffee cost and some stuff like recent keystore fixes really took a long time to debug which indeed required a lot of coffee at night haha.

    Yes, I read the post, but I don't see you saying how to root...
    Just download magisk and flash it in recovery i didnt post guide because eevryone should know how to do that i guess, if not i dont see how one would even end up with a custom 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)

    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

    I wanted to release something as a gift from me to everyone using this rom and supporting this project throughout the years. Keeping older phones alive and up to date is really fun hobby and I don't think I would've kept doing it if it wasnt for all of the support from the comunity.

    Once again big thanks to everyone who helped cover the build serve cost and coffee.

    Enjoy new build and stay safe

    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
