Hi all,

Just a huge *THANK YOU* to Yvan for keeping these Lineage ports to our good old S8. Just a couple of notes based on my fresh experience (with 5 tries before having something that was 100% what I wanted) :
  • Every time I tried to install pixel launcher (via Full or Stock packages), the "Recent apps" screen was empty. I also got the "search" tool in parameters not working with the same packages
  • If you're like me and want to have Android Auto (I can't imagine commuting without it) without having the full NikGapps package, just choose the core package + dedicated AndroidAuto plugin. It works very well.
  • Don't hesitate to wipe internal storage (once everything is backuped) in addition to just data : I have the feeling the end result is more reliable.
  • When you unlock the bootloader in S8 parameters for the first time, don't reboot directly in download mode to install TWRP right away. Please let the phone reboot normally and then flash TWRP. In my case, not doing this led me to bootloop (and brought tears to my eyes)
I still have to find a way to have a better camera app than the stock one : every port of Gcam I tried until now are utterly unstable and / or not working at all.

But so far so good. Again : thanks to the maintainer, that's surely a hell of a job to keep this up to date.

I am using the open camera app and zgcam. Open camera for fast and reliable pictures and zgcam for better quality. Here's a download link for the zgcam mod: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/changelog1340/

Hi guys, here's my experience, in case anyone get the same issues:
Installed the update via internal updater, and got stuck in a bootloop. Luckily I had a nandroid backup, so I could restore and try again (and again).
Then I tried to dirty flash from twrp, but had the same issue (kinda expected, it is more or less what the updater did).
Eventually, had to wipe system, cache and davlik (but not data) and flash it via twrp, along with nikgapps. After boot I had to delete the cache of google play, restore network permissions for Google store (!), and reflash magisk.
So far everything is working, with the same apps I had before the update, even token apps like Okta, and finicky stuff like Samsung Health, Galaxy Watch and Google Wallet.
Now I wonder, could the initial bootloop have happened due to root?
Kind of unrelated, but the updater seems to think I'm on the November 2022 version, even though the system itself knows I'm on 20230321 version. This has happened even before the update. Anyone else having the same issue?

Thanks for the zgcam port, i didn't see it before. But i've just tried it and it also isn't stable on my phone. I dont understand why, given that many others are using such ports.
I'll give open camera another try, to see if i can deal with its slowness on my phone. Or just keep the camera app that comes with lineageos 20, that is a lot better than before.

Hi all,

This may be dumb questions about the 'Trust' page in parameters, but I'll ask them anyway :

  • Why is SELinux disabled (and is it really baaaad ?)
  • Why does Trust complain about my vendor image being obsolete (and is it really baaaad ?)
  • Why is encryption disabled and is there a way to enable it ? I found various answers to this one, but I didn't really understand (and this is really baaaad!)
Thanks in advance for your patience...

Hi all,

Another day, another question :)

I can't get Seedvault to work: it always fail to initialize the backup destination (phone, sd card or OTG). I tried various format for the OTG USB key, to no avail. I'm not alone according to other messages last year in this thread.

I didn't delve into logcat yet, but I guess it's related to https://github.com/seedvault-app/seedvault/issues/448 : a non official Lineage and Seedvault refusing to work. Or did I miss something ?

I never managed to make it work, but it was causing me some kind of wake lock, so I disabled it with a packet manager...

@Ivan_Meler a suggestion.
Why don't you encourage people install core Gapps instead of any other package on op. People end up installing more "complete" Gapps which includes google dialer which gives microphone problems
Hello Badstuber87,
I am trying to understand if the google dialer could be responsible for the problem I am seeing with not being able to hear the called person. Would it be possible for you to share more details on your experience? E.g. about what Gapps are problematic more specifically, and what core Gapps are okay to use.
Kind regards

Please read the thread first. A lot of issues including available solutions are shared here already.

And otherwise go back to stock as you seem very demanding. It's all free what you get here

Any Gapps that replace the stock phone app with Google phone app Google dialer or whatever it's called breaks it. However ,the problem occurs only if you put the call on the loud speaker . Then you'll have to reboot to fix it.

If you install core Gapps youll have no problem installing google dialer later from PlayStore. It seems that the stock app needs to be just present and everything works , at least for me . The problem is 1. Some Gapps replace the stock dialer with the Google one. 2. If you put the call on the speaker .
Cheers !

    Does anyone know if the sound in call bug has been fixed?
    Not for me unfortunately. I can make a call or two (with or without bluetooth) and everything works fine. After that when I place or receive a call, i cannot hear the other person. Apparently they can hear me. Even if i disconnect my bluetooth or change headphones, it does not fix the problem.

    The only fix i've found is rebooting.

    Would really appreciate your help on this @Ivan_Meler . Please let me know if i can provide logs or something to help debug.

    Other than that, this rom is rock solid.

    Phone suppose to be for calling and yes bluetooth handset is also important to answer calls during drive.
    I think this is quite important bug (sound in call, volume adjust and mute function are affected)!
    So don't hesitate and post logs and detailed description how you reproduce issue.


    I kindly ask if there is any possibilty to elevate the priority of this bug. Thanks to very active developer @Ivan_Meler
    Here is my contribution and I will continue collaboration according to my abilities and knowledge (but I'm not any kind of programmer).

    Hey there, I tried to re-flash Gapps and lineage as a clean flash , and while I wiped it, I was stoopid so I forgot that it would wipe the lineage and nikgapps files as well. Now I have no os and I have rooted my device. I think I can get it to work but I need to get the files to flash with twrp.
    First of all, rooting your phone won't make a difference. If you want to keep it rooted, flash magisk after you revive the phone. Your best attempt would be to sideload the files through adb on a different computer. If that doesn't work (although it probably will) you may want to download the files onto an SD card or OTG USB stick and insert it into your phone. If it is formatted correctly, (just use Windows/Mac's default filesystem) then TWRP should recognise it.

    Hope this helped!

    Hey will you port android 14 for this phone?

    Not Working
    - Storage Encryption (WIP switching to FBE from FDE since FDE was removed in 13)


    Keep in mind that some LineageOS features have not been completed yet this is not a device bug and please do not report those

    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)

    NikGapps have been updated to 13, you might need to clean flash if you used other gapps in past including nikgapps 12.1 version

    Make sure you are using latest official TWRP before installing rom older versions do not have proper android 12/13 support

    Do note you might need to clean flash if you used 12.1 gapps that replace default webview and use 13 gapps instead

    Im aware of curent camera issues affecting Note 8 and im working on a fix right now, it will be out ASAP
    tho it might take some time since i dont have note 8 or properly working s8/s8+ for that matter so it takes a bit of time to debug everything

    Huge thanks to everyone who donated and helped cover the build server cost and got me coffee
