Anyone know the benefits/differences between the Gapps packs. NikGapps/MindTheGapps/etc... which one would be recommended now since MindTheGapps hasn't been updated in a while now.
I installed NikGapps with this recent install (cause updating stuck me in a boot loop) so was wondering if there was any benefit to other packages or not.
Which version did you use? I flashed the basic version arm64 and its working fine soo far.

My test was simply moving the LOS18 rom from internal to external and it happens every time time... Start transfer... Gets to about 70-80%... Shows crash screen... Reboot and sd card needs fixed... Instead of android fixing its way since it just thinks "oh let's just delete all content that fixes stuff" I stick SD card in pc and run chkdisk on it and fixes the Los file partial copy to not read as corrupt but not complete for me to delete it and try again with same result :p

Known that copying through twrp in recovery works just fine

Hello everyone,

Please can anyone here install this app [Quick Video Recorder (by Kimcy929) on Play Store] and see if it can record in 4K (the app says it does but the developer says it depends on OEM implementation of camera framework). I'm running stock Nougat so I can't check myself, so I'd be grateful if someone on LOS 18.1 can help check. 4k recording on this app doesn't work on stock (it comes out as 1080p even when 4k is selected in the app).

Sorry this post is off topic for this thread.

Thanks alot in advance!

You also having that with an custom kernel? It also may be SDCard timing related but with using gamma, fixes this issue for me, giving me other issues ;)

I ran into this problem as well. Android 11 seems to have this strange issue where the obb folder becomes completely invisible from the system. I ran into this issue on both LighthouseOS and SuperiorOS on my LG V20 H918.

Clean install from stock Nougat to A11 rom to get the fingerprint sensor working. Apparently hopping from stock Oreo to A11 borks the fingerprint sensor. Could not install any games with .obb files. The obb folder still exists when booting into TWRP and then mounting the internal storage to a PC to check it out, but when A11 boots up on the phone the obb folder disappears from all file explorers. Trying to create another obb folder with any file explorer won't work since it technically exists already. It'll just be named obb(1) automatically. I also tried sideloading the .apks and then copying the required .obb files from the PC to the obb folder on the phone while in TWRP but they still won't be detected by the games because the obb folder is invisible. The data folder IS visible but can't be accessed by file explorers.

I strongly suspect it's because of Android 11's dumb scoped storage restrictions that's become mandatory thanks to Google.

Unfortunately since I do game a lot on my phone and I also ran into the stupid A11 navigational bar bug as well I went back to the final Lineage 17.1 release for H918 which fixed all my gaming issues. Plus I was able to update the GPU drivers from another xda thread since the flashable zips don't seem to work in A11 yet anyways.

If you want to play big games with .obb files again, you might have to get back onto Lineage 17.1 to avoid the scoped storage nonsense.
I have also faced this issue and went back to Lineage 17.1 still hoping someday it might get fixed. it's really disappointing!

Yay! Thanks! So, should I consider the feature "tested and working/reliable"? Or what is its state? I'm not sure if it was hard for you to implement or not.

This really is an important feature to me, thanks! :D
Not hard to implement, just built our common solution for it - it should work fine.

If it doesn't though, probably means we'll have to use the proximity sensor which would suck.

Guys!! Finally I was able to download play store apps with obb and also install manually! just used x-plore. recently tried July 25, 2021 bulid and it worked!! Currently using it as a daily driver. I have flashed the MindTheGapps. Everything works!! one issue I am having is it drans a little more battery drain then LOS17. I am hoping to fix this problem using Ex Kernel Manager. I am trying out different settings to see what works best. if you guys have any suggestions please do let me know.

Like others, I am on latest 18.1 build, no root, no magestic, no alternative kernal just LOS kernal. LG v20 H910 and H918. 4 phones. Problem: LOS camera has no volume on video record. Using Open Camera on app store I can get volume because apk has setting choices on which mic to use. see attached. Is it possible to fix this issue so as to use LOS camera?

I think hundreds of LOS users have logged this mic issue over several years and no fix is done. Here is a perfect example:
https://gitlab.com/LineageOS/issues/android/-/issues/2209

The problem is simple to verify on many different devices. No logs needed.
Hate to be like this, but you clearly don't understand the issue if you're saying that.

Devices selecting the wrong microphone in the camera app are very much, device specific bugs, that are almost all different.

Some related to microphone input arrays, such as tri-mic setups that aren't being properly utillized, some are incorrect ACDB tables/ID, some are hardware issues where people have stuck paperclips in the microphone thinking it was the SIM tray (WAY more common than your think), some devices have issues with source built audio HALs due to framework side additions by the OEM - there are x^n more possibilities.

And all of them are different.

So, again, if you'd like help on this, I need logs of the _specific_ situation you've hit.

    Any way to get by without having to install Gamma Kernel, or pull a questionable patched kernel from telegram?

    I've had issues with various camera apps (and IR, albeit a low priority) unless I use a rather outdated kernel with its own set of issues.

    Would be awesome to have these things work long term without much intervention. Happy to sponsor assuming it's not an incredible undertaking.

    Shoutout to the devs, they have done a wonderful job! I've daily driven LineageOS on this phone for about 3 years now and its working spectacularly, 18.1 has been relatively stable for me.

    I just had the bug that corrupts your SD card. My phone had a Kenel crash and after I restarted the SD had to be formatted.
    Is there any way I can get this log from my Kernel so I can help the devs to fix the issue?

    EDIT: Ok, I used Syslog and got everything except the modem logs, hope this helps. And I hope it got the log from the Kernel crash.
    Wohooo! No crashes so far since the update from today!
    Was this the cause: https://review.lineageos.org/c/LineageOS/android_kernel_lge_msm8996/+/314811/ ??

    Thanks Electrolite for the logs and the devs for the quick implementation!!

    On my LG v20 H910 with LOS 18.1 lineage-18.1-20210722-nightly-h910-signed.zip
    (nothing else installed, no gapps, no mods, no root, etc...) the "LOS SNAP CAMERA" VIDEO record sound volume is almost 0%

    SAME ISSUE ON Lg v20 H918 !!!!!!! I have that phone also.

    After days of research and playing with mixer_paths_tasha.xml settings I gave up..... PROBLEM VERIFIED: its a LOS snap camera apk issue.

    Then I installed ROM [android 11] UNOFFICIAL SuperiorOS-Xcalibur

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...96-11-unofficial-superioros-xcalibur.4248255/

    COMING FROM LINEAGE/RR:

    1. Boot into twrp
    2. Do a regular wipe (not format)
    3. Flash Superior zip
    4. Flash magisk (optional but recommended)
    5. Wipe dalvik
    6. Reboot

    CAMERA VIEDO WORKS PERFECT !!!!
    PERFECT SOUND !!!



    To LOS maintainers: Fix the LOS SNAP CAMERA apk or quit screwing around with programming android ROMs. Simple as that. I am a MSEE engineering manager and if I cant do my job right I don't do it at all.


    The LOS snap camera has been broken for a very long time (years) and many people have had to use GCAM or Open Camera and all these people including myself are sick that LOS maintainers can't fix a simple but very important apk in LOS (CAMERA video sound issue). This is well documented all over LOS wiki and github etc.....

    "Hi @npjohnson
    Open Camera (and BSG GCam 8.1) uses unprocessed-mic by default to get audio while recording video."


    I am done with LOS until this is fixed. YOU ARE WASTING MY TIME
    Yeah, considering h910/h918 are near identical, makes sense that they both suffer.

    By your own statement, you're an engineer, and should be able to discern based on the info you gave me that it is _not_ an issue with the "Snap Camera apk", instead that we are using compressed audio path, and clearly it isn't processing right (likely a codec issue like I mentioned several posts ago). We could swap it to unprocessed mic input, but that will be garbled and awful - only using that as a last resort as opposed to actually fixing the compressed audio route.

    As for the insults launched - k, stop using lineage then. I literally have not a care in the world whether you use it. I'm doing hard work for free, which, as an engineer, you should understand is often thankless, and your naggy/attacking comments only make me want to never touch the device again :)

    I'll be looking at it sometime this week, but for everyone else on this thread who has been kind and supportive lol.

    Maybe you should go back to stock? You do realize we do this for free and on our own time? If there are any issues we try to fix them ASAP but with your comments I doubt @npjohnson is going to want to support the device anymore. If there is any issue I would recommend reporting it in a less-hostile way and it might be a simple fix rather than insulting the primary dev for LOS on the device who may now not want to support the device anymore...

    So, my girlfriend is at home, asked her to try it - and surprise surprise, Snap Camera's video recorded audio works just fine lol. Front and rear camera.

    I did pick the patchset we merged on g5-common though afterwards, and merged it - it sounds to loud to me tbh, but enough people seem to like it better, lets go with it.

    I am running LOS 18.1 for h910 on a h910 (unlocked via dirtySanta). Since i have reproducable kernel panics when searching for a carrier/mobile provider (don't know the exact english phrase), my questions are
    1. What modem do you use, the original h915 or us996?
    2. Would you say this modem would be worth a try on a h910 with kernel panics and LOS 18.1 (for h910)?
    3. Would cross flashing h910 to us996 be an option?
    answer to both your questions.

    1st you need to go back to stock ver US96610f_00_1205.kdz.

    Why? My understanding is that partition structure and certain opcodes changed after that point and all this is tied into ARB0 to ARB1. This affects custom ROMs

    When your all done you MUST USE h910 modem so flash that when your done and don't use a ver 20x modem.

    If you follow all the correct steps and rules everything works perfect, no kernal panics and no performance issues.

    If you want more tech explanation, go googling. It's out there.

    Here is some good reading on other topics. https://lineageos.org/engineering/Qualcomm-Firmware/
