Heyo, I was wondering if this change is really necessary?
I think it is best to leave it as is (to have Widevine L1 out of the box)
With universal safetynet fix and a few workarounds you can get working Netflix HD playback (in my experience, back in the day)

If any user wishes to downgrade to L3 they can just use a magisk module or delete the file themselves
yeah thing is l1 doesn't work on custom roms anymore and you would get black screen instead of app kicking back to l3

Sony Xperia M
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
Oh boy I missed this one bro , Happy belated birthday !!!

I have a galaxy s8. Why do you suggest sakura project? Project sakura is an EOL ROM and has many bugs {e.g. HWC).
I have used sakura for a long time. I never knew that it has hwc problem. Because the phone would never heat up. Everything was very fluid plus great battery. I am not recommending a12 because of ram problem. When i tried a12 phone would use 3.4 gb ram when idle plus 1.5 gb swap. That is why phone would become hot app would restart when switching... At least give sakura a10 a try.
 
Hey !
As I said many times incredible work on this bring a new life to my Note8.
But there is a big issue with notification...
I already report it but when I'm on mobile data the notification are just not working...
My subscription to my provider is unlimited in terms of data.
I don't understand what is going on because on wifi there is any problem.

Anyone using this rom in area where 2G & 3G signals have been switched off? Wonder how usable it is.... As the only option to call out is with Volte... And there is no custom rom supporting Volte?

Thanks for the answer!

No=(

unfortunately I installed all this modules and its does not help, all banks apps work well, only crypto apps like binance or crypto com dont login -(



I got the exact same problem and I can't find any solution for now.
I asked the Binance support for help but they found nothing. They told that they are still searching.

If you find any solution please tell me.
🙏🏼


do you guys found the solution to this in the meantime? I have the same problem on S7 at the moment with binance app.

Hello sir,
The qr scanner in the notification panel doesn't appear to me even looking for it in the editing pencil. Could you re-ad the feature cause I find it important.

Got this installed on my note 8, checked it was running, rebooted to twrp, installed gapps64 stock for 12L, cleared cache/davilek, rebooted.

"Password required after Device restarts" but no on screen keyboard to enter the password to unlock the device.

Don't "check if it was running". Install Gapps immediately after ROM. It's also mentioned on the instructions (1st page):

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)

LineageOS 19.1 for Exynos 8895 devices



ROM OS Version: Android 12
ROM Kernel: Linux 4.4.x

Installed this yesterday. Works fine except for anything related to facebook giving a login error. I have logged in on other apps such as instagram, tiktok, what's app etc. It's just anything that needs a facebook login that fails.

EDIT: FIXED! All I had to do was long-press on the facebook app icon and clear the cache. After that I was able login on all apps connected to facebook.

Missed that thanks for pointing it out, got distracted by a dodgy USB cable causing some flash issues.

Seems no matter how I try to install this on my note 8 during first boot to set up the system 9/10 with or without gapps loaded before first boot it falls over during First set up. Maybe I am not patient enough but it just hangs right after Googles privacy options, I think at the point where the next thing is to enter Google account details.
Lineage is always my go to. However on this device once past the dodgy USB cable issue PixelExperience 12.1 unofficial has gone flawlessly in comparrison.
The purpose is to see how viable my old note 8 which was already rooted anyway is at being a 'Home Assistantant' host, not that I think it is necessary to be rooted for the purpose as I got it running on an nvidia shield Pro without root.

I would suggest to reflash stock and redownload ROM and try another Google Apps package than the one u used now. A new cable could be a good idea as well.

If it fails again I'm out of options.. I don't own a Note 8, so I cannot confirm that it's working for me with latest build. Maybe someone else can?

    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)
    (Im still waiting for a properly working s8/n8 listing to show up on ebay thats not overpriced so i can use it for testing as my s8 has messed up display and unfortunately import from UK turned out to be more expensive than s8 would be worth)


    In other news android 13 should be released next month and since there were no major changes s8 and note8 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.

    Thank you very much Ivan
    glad to keep 8 series alive, and well next few updates will be more exciting

    Morning all,
    I am coming from the PixelExperience ROM, because it does not meet some of my basic requirements:
    • SafetyNet passed, by default (without using Magisk)
    • Battery draining too fast
    • Heating issue in some occasion

    I would like your feedback / comment, on any of these points, please?
    Cheers
    Good day,

    It is a stable and good rom and I use LineageOS as my daily driver , for your questions:

    1 Safetynet is NOT passed by default, you still need Magisk. I am not aware of any Android 11 or 12 rom for the S8 that does this have this function out of the box without Magisk (with Magisk it is working great by the way).
    2 My battery is good and I do not have any issues, there are still some major improvements expected like HWC support. But I have better battery life on Lineage than on Stock.
    3 Haven't had any heat issues.

    For me LinaeageOS 19.1 for S8 is the perfect rom, but I do not know if this is the case for you, as mentioned by requirement 1. I hope this helps making a decision for you.

    And Thanks Ivan for your continued development for our (old) phones.

    Anyone else having issues with not finding certain apps in play store / getting error with not compatible? Like revolut
    Also, am I missing some settings, as the camera is capped to 1080p and many options missing, like format, codec(hevc) jpeg quality etc
    No, I have Revolut installed and working. It showed up just fine in the Play Store for me. No apps have complained about anything actually. I installed it via TWRP along with the GApps package from the OP. Other than missing a few options from the stock ROM (like screen resolution and flashlight brightness), I've had zero problems. The phone is also way snappier than it was with the stock ROM. Firefox in particular ran like a two-legged dog before I switched. It's still not quite as buttery smooth as it is on my Poco F3, but it's not far off now. As for the camera, I chose to install IDan's GCam build. Works like a charm.

    Thanks to Ivan for the hard work.

    Thank you very much for this rom Ivan. The battery life on my S8 G950F is astonishing really. I was previously using an /e/ rom with ~3 days of battery life if left idle. With this rom my battery only drains 10-15% per day if my phone isn't used much, giving me around 6 days before really needing to charge my phone. This is great for someone like me who doesn't use it much. Cheers!

    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)

    Since most gapps didnt update for 12L yet (SDK bumped from 31 to 32) i edited falmegapps and uploaded them here use them if you cant find gapps that work on 12L https://mega.nz/folder/FFoS1IIK#XunGRNTViQY7-OZ8oQr0sg
    Make sure gapps you decide to use support android 12L/12.1/Are targetting api level 32

    Make sure you are using latest official TWRP before installing rom older versions do not have proper android 12 support

    As prommised here it is Android 12, Big thanks to everyone who supported project with donations that helped cover the build server cost and get me coffee
    If you want to turn off auto live display (Yellow tint) type "Live" in settings search and go to LiveDisplay
    28
    I havent posted an actual progress update in quite some time so here is some behind the scenes.
    • First of all selinux, that is actually being worked on and it should be supported in near future (Tho it needs some testing to make sure things dont break)
    • Kernel upstream and full eBPF support, thats on its way too so we wont need any hacks to make bpf work anymore which is a nice bonus + we will be able to use some nice new features like gpu monitoring which requires eBPF
    • HWC This is a big one, without revealing too much there is big progress on this behind the scenes and while it does require quite a bit of work once this is sorted we will have much better battery life and UI will be waaay smoother (2x increase at least), this and few other hals will be open sourced too once this is nearly finished so no more proprietary blobs for it
    • 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 8895 devices will be in perfect condition and once android 13 source is out it wont take too long to get it working.

    Some other small notes since s8 i use to develop this rom on has broken screen (i use scrcpy to mirror screen on pc) im actually still looking into getting 8895 device, Someone offered to send one from UK but since im in EU ill have to look into import tax and stuff caused by brexit which is not fun to deal with.

    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.

    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

    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)
    (Im still waiting for a properly working s8/n8 listing to show up on ebay thats not overpriced so i can use it for testing as my s8 has messed up display and unfortunately import from UK turned out to be more expensive than s8 would be worth)


    In other news android 13 should be released next month and since there were no major changes s8 and note8 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.
