I assume you've read the instructions and are flashing the GApps package right after flashing the ROM zip?
I've got the same model, I'm using NikGApps which are working fine.

Flash the ROM zip, and flash the GApps package. After that, reboot to system. You can flash Magisk after the first successful boot if you need it.

I am using NikGapps for Android 12L and had no issues for the 4 months I've been using this rom. Even Android Auto works after I flashed the NikGapps Android Auto add-on.

Hi im having a major issue when switching on my phone ,the brightness drops to 0, cannot be increased. Cannot see anything on the screen yet i know it works cause i can still unlock it and i have no problem with brightness in twrp .
Using an s8
If theres anybody who knows a solution to this it would be a huge help.

Edit:upon startup up im able to see my lock screen but then the brightness drops to absolute 0 for no reason, the screen is still responsive as i tap and feel the vibrations and even unlock my phone but tying to raise the brightness does nothing. This issue only appeared after updating to the latest version

I never encountered a similar problem when I updated from the July build to the September build. Sounds like an isolated problem and the only solution I can think of is a fresh install.

October security update is out, here is a brief changelog
- Merged october 2022. Security update
- Fixed samsungs bug with gps where it would start acting up over time due to time rollover bug
- Adressed missing symbol in advanced camera effects lib that wouldnt launch without them
- Performance and stability improvements
- Switched to Generic FunctionFS usb backend (We used legacy functionfs in past)
- Synced with LineageOS source

Big thanks to everyone who supported this project and helped cover the build server cost which kept the project running throughout the years.

There are quite a few stability changes that have been backported in this build from Android 13 builds and they should improve overall experience

Thank you for the amazing work Ivan, thanks to you I can still use my phone and not hate every second of it.

I have one question though. Will there ever be a fix to the NFC? It seems like it kinda works but it actually doesn't. I will send you logs when I have time to reproduce the same issue again.

I recently commented on LineageOS 20.0 thread regarding HDMI mirroring. I just tried it on Lineage 19.1 but it fails here too. The previous time I tried I think it was LineageOS 19.0 (Android 12, not 12L) and it worked somewhat.

Great ROM, second life for my oldtime galaxy s8... but i faced some problems...
the biggest was google pay and sparkasse-banking... so far i got the pay via paypal to run with magisk and an module. but pushtan wont work. tried everything and then i switched back to my chiptan device... ok... it is like it is..

but the other things i miss:
- Fingerprint-unlock on lockscreen doesnt work looks like it fixes itself... a bug
- iris-scanner not available anymore
- No add button in VPN? Really restrictive to me... :(

    Here we go, november security update is out
    - Merged November 2022. Security update
    - Switched to hidl usb hal from hw/samsung

    Some of you might have noticed that there were not any updates after security update, I had a lot going on in personal life and havent had time for android unfortunately hopefully that changes soon so i can finish up few more things that need to be sorted on n8/s8.
    On another note updated 18.1 builds will likely be out tomorrow

    Hello XDA S8 community! New to to this stuff, since I'm kind of irritated with the stock Samsung firmware and stuff, I'm leaning towards flashing my first custom ROM on my Samsung S8.

    Just thought I'd ask here first for some pointers/thoughts on this ROM? Is it stable? Working nicely? No lags/stutters and bloat and stuff? Sorry for noob questions please bare with me a little thank you!
    Hi
    I'm using this ROM on my Note8 for many months as daily driver and anything to complain about it. Except the fact that when I'm on mobile network (LTE/4G/3G...) I'm receiving any notifications.
    The ROM is really stable and less laggy than stock one.
    Some times it crash (once a month not more), it reboot and here we go again !
    This is a custom unofficial ROM, it is not perfect but clearly better than Samsung's one and the most important, it's up to date !

    I have installed and successfully used LineageOS19.1 : 19-20220707-UNOFFICAL-dreamlte. The system suggests me to downlaod and install more recent versions of LineageOS19.1. What is you advice ? Does is worth it ? Any risk to lose data/app ?
    If you download the OTA update package and install it then there shouldn't be any issues with losing your data. I have been using this rom for over 6 months now and I updated to every single monthly update from the OTA update channel.

    Thank you very much for your clear answer. I have done it : nothing worse than before, works like a charm.

    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)

    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

    Here are some progress update
    Here is android 13 working with new kernel that has BPF backport which took me days to properly backport, but it will help us get better overall experience in both 12 and 13 and future android versions
    I just have to resolve some wifi issues and after those are done builds will be uploaded

    Huge thanks to everyone who supported this project, helped cover the build server cost and got me coffee/pizzaa for time spent working on this.

    See you soon with Android 13 on S8/Note8 that are 5 years old this year

    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
    30
    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.

    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.
