i have a strange problem

when i use built-in updater to update the phone

the download process will often stall/stop

but during this time i can still use internet, e.g. chrome browsing normally

i have to turn off and on wifi again, then resume download

usually i have to do this 2-3 times for the update to completely download

do you have the same problem?

i will find a way to fix the problem. i always do.
you may have run into whatever issue i had that required switching from TWRP to LOS recovery a few months ago due to bootloop.

basically had to flash latest LOS recovery, use that to reflashing LOS plus noticed updated MtG, then had to reinstall several google apps over themselves to fix permissions errors.

i posted in thorough detail about my troubleshooting method and all that fun stuff on reddit, since i use that regularly.

Just got an urgent text notification from my carrier Metro By T-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS):


Does anyone recommend a good carrier in the USA that doesn't require VoLTE?
if you haven't noticed by now, everyone will be requiring VoLTE but that and VoWiFi both are industry hot messes for the last decade (this has been causing so many problems for me through supporting my parents in the last couple months).

my recommendation is move your phone number to a voip service, like google voice (for americans), then you can at least avoid some of the hassles, but still may potentially be issues calling 911 as that is not really clear (and likely also broken by ATT whitelist crap).

I have broken navigation in V20 h990n.
GPS test shows no satellites no any information.
I can try download all apk from original firmware install something related to navigation.

Any other suggestions what else can I take from stock rom?

Consider Line 2 service/app. Over ten years ago, I was already on that data only plan hack for mobile on my OG Galaxy Note 1 with Line 2.

Is there any hope for LineageOS to support VoLTE soon? I really want to avoid having to switch carriers this summer, but T-Mobile is discontinuing HSPA and UMTS. it seems EDGE, and HSPA+ will remain online.

LG us996.

None. LGE built IMS into the frameworks/java side, and it can't be reversed in any meaningful way.

Thank @AShiningRay and @askermk2000,they're the ones doing the heavy lifting, I'm handling the device tree side conflicts and issues
Is it okay if I ask how you guys are getting along? I see there's always some work done on your Linux 4.4 repositories on Github but since this reply I get the impression that you talk about support for newer Android in this thread pessimistically nonetheless for some reason.

Is it possible to give a rough judgement on the chances of us having Lineage 19 (or preferably above, wouldn't mind seeing Android 12 skipped) by the time Android 11 stops receiving security patches from Google?

I only recently moved to the V20 (might be a bad idea in the long run but even if that's the case I'll at least have experienced the swansong of old-style phones in terms of batteries, etc :D It's been great so far) and just want to have those security updates for more than ca. 1.5 years if possible.

Also thank you so much for the work on LOS, at least to @npjohnson (idk how much work anyone else put in lol). As things are LOS 18 is serving me well, I don't have any meaningful complaints.

Well this is getting a bit off-topic given what this thread is about, but i think i can answer that briefly.

The short answer for the 4.4 kernel is: So far, it's working reasonably fine. Most things work and in theory we can get Android 12 running on it as of now. However, what doesn't yet work is pretty critical to the phone, namely USB, Audio and Camera (there's probably something else, but i'm not home to look at the local docs right now). Every single one of those is pretty complicated to fix due to the lack of documentation, and none of us being well-versed in low-level stuff like i2c calls and etc. but we're trying to get more help though.

As for the rough judgment... well, the chance is 100% now, the V20 can get Lineage 19-19.1 running on the 4.4 kernel with some work, but those problems above will render it basically unusable for most. The overall negativity surrounding the newer android versions is because we don't even know if we'll be able to get the newer kernel working 100% with the phone since we've been stuck with those three key difficulties for a while, hence we don't think there will be a perfectly functional A12 build for the V20 very soon and are refraining from bringing it up all that much.

The latest version of LOS is installed. If the battery level is less than 50%, then OpenCamera and even the Camera from the LOS firmware begin to freeze and slow down, as if there is not enough energy for the processor or something else. How to fix this and does anyone else experience this too?
For me camera is slow and freezes (usually when quickly zooming) often, didn't pay attention when it was less than 50% or not. Currently using an original battery (about a week old) H990DS

Edit:
Unfortunately, Open Camera just froze me while being at 50% and plugged in. I think it can always freeze for me. But I opened it quickly after restarting my phone. Not sure how would it go under normal conditions.

    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...

    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.

    If someone could figure out how to get VoLTE working on LineageOS for this phone then it would solve a lot of problems. This is the fastest battery phone on the market that supports custom ROMs. There is no replacement for it.
