ugh... that sucks. ive had more than a handful of times almost blown my ear drums out after forgetting how loud the volume is with the dac/amp toggled on. i did find a volume limiter app to work around it.
If you plug in your headphone then turn off the DAC with Lineage's toggle it should remain off even if you replug the headphone.

Using 18.1, version 210902 on a US996. I have a 512GB SD card. For some reason, I *cannot* see the filenames of almost any of the files on the SD card - either on the phone or on a computer (either under Linux or Windows 10). The card is more than half full; the directory tree is visible but the only files I can see are the Nandroid backups generated by TWRP. Anyone know why I don't see any filenames?? Thanks very much.

20210912 and earlier work fine. I could not install the new version. I stitched it three times. lineage-18.1-20210926 won't load. waited 25 minutes. installed 23 magisk. open gapps 11 nano 20210925. and tried the last one. still does not load.

20210912 and earlier work well with this configuration. 20210926 could not boot. Please correct. A very good system!

No clue man. Boots here. Try it with a newer OpenGapps and without magisk.
what the difference inbetween LOS 17.1 and 18.1?
Android 11, bug fixes, DAC support - upgrade.

the DAC toggle button is seeable in the drawer when customising. But this button, and only this is greyed and untouchable. So is there some further step to enable DAC? I have the h990ds.

Downloaded the latest Sept. 30th build this morning for h918, and it errored out, had to do a factory reset. Come to find out, it also replaced my TWRP with it's own LineageOS recovery (thought I had that disabled). Was not expecting that, and it's pretty clunky and awful. Not happy.

Edit: So I'm still using the Sept. 30th build and my phone really seems to be struggling to get location data, and my net speeds seem to be on the slow side. I have 1Gbps fiber, and typically get about 450 down on 5 Ghz, I'm pulling about 130 currently. In Google Maps, it puts me in the middle of the ocean, GPS errors in Pokemon Go and GasBuddy (which I use to find the cheapest fuel around me). Never had any issues like this until this build. I may go back to the one I had from about 2 weeks ago and see if my issues persist now; that one seemed perfectly fine then.

    Thread slightly cleaned!

    This is a development site and people contribute work as a fun hobby, NOT A JOB! They don't owe you anything but you owe the developers respect!
    If a ROM does not work for you, what did you do to contribute? Did you clean flash? More important, did you run a log of errors to help the developer? Just remember what you would expect in your profession. Or were you just too lazy to help and prefer to leech and complain?
    This world will only get better if we all learn to give instead of always taking! Please do not comment on rude posts, please report and a moderator will help.
    Thank you all for your cooperation.

    is there a way to get stereo while recording video?

    gamma kernel will allow IR blaster for both emitting and receiving? It should be mentioned that this device also records IR codes from other remote controls.

    Is there any feature that will be lost with gamma kernel? greater power draining?
    I'll say it again, if anyone just links me the changes needed, I can get them put into the official kernel.

    Speakerphone mode while in a phone call:

    Solution for LOS ( it worked for camera audio apk )

    reference:
    reddit.com/r/lgv20/comments/dqfskw/i_finally_found_how_to_record_clean_stereo_audio/

    1) Verify speakerphone in LOS uses TOP MIC
    I just verified speakerphone is using all 3 MICs. Thats a problem = Lots of NOISE ! Make changes to use TOP MIC only.

    2) SET PHONE/DIALER apk to use UNPROCESSED mode for TOP MIC when using speakerphone mode. ALL Programs (in this case phone DIALER) "which use the UNPROCESSED mode (MIC input) give superior audio quality. Note that this mode is pretty quiet, as the other modes do some adjustable gain. Since the V20's mic has a wider dynamic range than usual, and it doesn't actually let you capture at 24-bit, you would get a higher noise floor than on another phone with 16-bit recording, assuming the same quality of mic, amp, etc. just a different gain before the ADC."
    Feel free to push up a patch, the wiki has great detail on how to do so.

    ButI was referring to the IR changes in Gamma kernel.

    Yes, I have had same issue on H910
    and
    - speakerphone not working
    - phone getting too warm / hot
    - phone reboots randomly (not often but once in a while)
    - other issues

    So I flashed stock US99620f_00_1120 on my H910 and now very happy with no ATT garbage apks and everything on phone works perfect.

    LOS is not even close to being ready for daily use. Some Devs maintaining LOS for V20 phones are just not able to make BASIC features work. Some dont even own a H910. Its a hobby to play with. And I understand that some orrigional source code is not available which I being an engineer understand is a huge problem.

    Only reason why I have 5 LG v20 phones (H910 and H918) is because I like the ability to change battery to larger size and I dont need or want the "newer phones".
    1. It works on my h918, and on another developers h910 (yes, we do have one!) - not sure why you're hitting this - a bug report and logs (as I've said x^n times to you) would be helpful.
    2. What are you doing with it? It's an old phone - thermal throttling is to be expected - it's like running Win10 on an XP built PC - can you? Yes, will it throttle and slow down? Also yes.
    3. I haven't seen these - do you have any mods? If no - next time it happens pull /sys/fs/pstore and post the logs here - I'll solve it ASAP. Random reboots can and often are hardware related in one way or another.
    4. "indescriptive" - file bugs if you want help, if not, please just go away.

    You persistently insult the devs for lge-8996 and act high and mighty - either contribute, file proper bugs, or just go away tbh - it's a free time project that you seem to enjoy making not fun for the devs.

    And the speakerphone sucks. Not usable

    THE LG V20 is my favorite phone
    Fun! The 20-something'th time you've said this?

    For the love of god then either fix it, provide logs on a a freaking bug ticket (which I'll say for the 8th time, but you refuse to do), or just don't post!

    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.
