You need to make the phone boot into the recovery first after flashing twrp with odin without booting normally iirc.
So.... disable "auto reboot" in odin and after flashing it, hold power+home+vol DOWN, then immediately after the screen flashes, swap to holding power+home+vol UP.
Thanks for the reply. The issue I'm having is that I can't get TWRP onto the phone in the first place.

Thanks for the reply. The issue I'm having is that I can't get TWRP onto the phone in the first place.
I suggest to first wipe phone completely by flashing stock factory image via Odin.
If that doesn't work, phone has FRP issue.
If it works, you may follow
Here a detailed Instruction:
========================================================
1. In your ROM, go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.

2. Now go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device)
You need to enable OEM unlock, otherwise you might end up with boot problems or be unable to flash later on.

3. Extract Odin to your computer.

4. Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.

5. Download a .tar image of TWRP for herolte.

6. Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] buttons while your device reboots.
Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.

7. [Optional] Install latest Bootloader / Modem firmware:
Open Odin and place the Bootloader in the [AP] and Modem in the [CP] slot.
Disable Auto-Reboot Option, then press [Start].

8. Open Odin and place that TWRP tar file in the [AP] slot.
Disable Auto-Reboot Option, then press [Start].

9. Hold [Volume Down] + [Home] + [Power] to get out of Download mode and immediately swap [Volume Down] to [Volume Up] (continuing to hold [Home] + [Power]) when the screen blanks.
If you don't see then TWRP boot splash try again from step 6.

10. At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
By swiping right, you will trigger dm-verity, and if you don't follow the next step you will be unable to boot!

11. After allowing modifications, go into Wipe and choose Format Data option
(no need to format differently and then format back again)

12. REBOOT back into TWRP recovery again using the option in the reboot menu

13. Download the latest ROM for your device.
Without exiting TWRP, transfer the ROM zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.

14. [Optional] Download the latest GAPPS for your device.
Without exiting TWRP, transfer the GAPPS zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
Important: Flash Gapps and Mods right after Rom Installation, no reboot in between!

15. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].

12. Wait 2-5 minutes for your device to finish setting itself up.

Thanks for the reply... That guide looks good. As for the wipe, a factory wipe is not sufficient then?

Hi all. I've tried a few times to install this along with gapps MindTheGapps-12.1.0-arm64-20220605_112439.zip. I've by uploading the 2 files to the phones sd card and using WRTP to do the install and also using adb to sideload through TWRP. In the both cases LineageOS installed fine but in the 1st case there was a error installing gapps and in the 2nd case everything *appeared* to install ok but when the phone boots there are no Google apps so I have no way to install apps. Is this normal or have I been doing something wrong?

I used Odin to flash TWRP but the very latest version fail so I had to use the next version down on the TWRP downlaod page. The LineageOS file I'm using is;
lineage-19.1-20221109-UNOFFICIAL-herolte.zip
and Gapps is;
MindTheGapps-12.1.0-arm64-20220605_112439.zip

Hopefully somebosy will be able to help me sort this out as Lineage 19 looks nice :)

I used bitgapps. Worked perfectly for me.
Thanks for that Snype :) Did you manage to get TWRP 3.7 onto your phone from the link on here? I've tried but I'm not sure how to do it lol. I have 3.6.2_9-0 on my phone at the moment and extracted the 3.7 version from the zip and uploaded it to the phone then tried to use TWRP to install it but it doesn't see the image using the install option. Then I uploaded the whole zip and tried to install it but I get an "invalid zip file format" error. I'm probably doing it all wrong lol. What process did you use to get the correct TWRP onto you phone?

I used Odin 3, and not the latest TWRP, but the previous one. Latest one failed with odin

I'm not sure if this is a bug or just my phone being old and decrepit like its' owner but in the status bar the battery always shows as being at 0% but in both the settings and settings/battery screens I can see the correct level of charge. When I first booted the phone for the 1st time after installation I changed the status bar settings to show the battery percentage in text next to the icon and it *did* display to correct percentage then. However the following day it was showing the battery as 0% in the status bar and has done ever since even while on charge. It's not a big issue and I can certainly live with it but I thought I should mention it here just in case the info is useful to somebody :)

Apart from that little issue I'm loving it, the phone seems more responsive and I *think* the battery life is a little better althoug my battery is fubar so it's hard to tell lol. My thanks to the creator for a job well done :)

Thanks a lot @Ivan_Meler for you relentless and fine work!

I have ordered now a second Samsung Galaxy S7 as used, to have a testing system to be more safier when upgrading my main S7.
So, when this works, I will change in two weeks or so to your LOS 20.0...

    Unfortunately I confirm I have phone echo issues with this Rom since I installed it (fews months ago), and with every following update.

    The echo is not on my side, my caller can hear it's own echo on his side. Seems like my mic is recording sound from my speaker (at low level but still)

    Is there mixer_path tweaks to try, or something else to flash ?
    Or is it possible to check another Rom mixer path file ?

    I'm having this same issue. It seems that apps that don't rely on some form of phone call service/voIP (like the Google Recorder app) work just fine with the microphone. I can't hear anything that seems out of the blue, only the fact that the microphone (at least from what it seems) records audio a lot quieter than it use too.

    The quiet microphone sensitivity seems to also carry over to the VoIP / Regular Calling apps as well. The Interlocutor can hear their voice briefly for a small amount of time shortly after they speak.

    I think the reason why this happens is because the S7 has 2 microphones on the top and bottom. I noticed that the top microphone (at least from my findings with settings pages, and different apps) cannot be configured for use. The default microphone the phone uses is the one at the bottom, located close to the speaker.

    I tried looking around many places (including XDA) in different places from Magisk Modules to Lineage updates, but it appears that this is a known issue with very minimal knowledge as to what is causing it for some people.

    I hope this gives insight to anyone actively investigating the issue, though I do admit it's pretty surface level observations.

    Thanks to everyone for making this possible, especially Ivan Meler.

    (I'm using the Canadian G930W8 variant of the S7 in case anyone was wondering)



    Edit: I forgot to mention that I tried installing different Microphone mixer_path patches, alongside having AML (Audio Modification Library) installed, but it seemed to not resolve anything. I will likely continue my own digging with this as I'm not too accustomed to what it fully does yet.

    Have the same problem with my girlfriend's Galaxy S7 with lineage OS onboard. SInce installation, I hear (on my Xiaomi 9T) terrible echo and hissing distortion of her voice. Can anybody help me?

    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

    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

    Since my birthday is tomorrow I decided to release a little surprise build. Here is a brief changelog:
    - Updated libexynosdisplay from BSP to comply with some android 12 changes
    - Removed unused build.prop entries
    - Fixed few selinux denials related to hwc props
    - Improved UI performance and stability
    - Cleaned up source
    - Removed more unneeded patches for device support
    - Synced with LineageOS source

    Im aware of Seedvault issue curently present and im working on a fix for it.
    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

    - 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
