Any of you using the built in AOSP dialer? If so, is there a way for the call screen to be a different colour apart from the default blue (attached)? Personally I would prefer a blackish tone or maybe the material you theming

Note to those with Essential 360 Cam... it works fine with this rom. I have to have my phone fully charged for it to work but it does work. I am not sure if it just the battery in my PH-1 is just so old and weak it can not handle the strain on the battery when the 360 Cam is attached or something else but it does work when I have the phone charged to 100%.

It is actually a combination - this happens to me as well. Even on stock.

I have dug my old Essential out of the attic (greatest phone ever) and thought I would get it up and running again since it had stopped working years ago.

I arrived armed with a replacement screen from Amazon and it sprung into life.

I have installed the latest nightly and everything was going well, until I locked the phone because as soon as I did this the screen became unresponsive.

The only way to recover things are a hard reboot where it will work again until I lock it again.

Issue #2 is the camera app crashes for me, is anyone else having issues with the latest nightly?

Camera app works for me.

And I can wake from sleep - is your panel OEM or random china model?

Does NFC work well for everyone else on the UNOFFICIAL version? I just upgdated from the official LinageOS 18, should I have installed from scratch instead of 'updating to a higher version of LinageOS'?

Not using that app but both the stock dialler (white on official build) & Google one go black if you set display to dark theme in settings, might work for yours (though this will apply to everything)

What do you mean the stock dialer? In lineageos, the aosp dialer is the stock dialer. I am aware of the google phone app, but the only advantage it offers is identifying caller id for businesses which I don't need.

Yes, I know they are both ASOP but as yours is blue I assumed you must be on unofficial version of this ROM as mine is white, anyhow turning on system wider dark mode may be something you could consider

For me it crashes when taking hdr and sometimes don't save for the regular ones

Crashes for me too - but only if HDR is on.

I've had a couple of crashes too (with auto HDR setting on)
Known issue - I'm looking into it. Fixing it won't be easy, but I promise I will try hard :)

    Appreciate the concise reply(s).
    Thanks,

    EDIT:
    Klik Portrait Mode crashes device (from just selecting the mode).
    On reboot, initial A12 lock screen only covers lower 3/4 of screen (upper 1/4 black).
    Secondary reboot, device back and working fine.
    Klik Portrait Mode repeats same result.

    Known issue, or likely related to auxiliary app (something I did) ?

    Anyone know why the attached option is not available in the lineageos I.e. option to choose theme colours extracted from the wallpaper? Is it a pixel exclusive thing?

    I have been running this build for 4 days (today is the 5th day), and it has been very stable & smooth... thanks Nolen and Lineage.
    The one bug that I have encountered is not a Lineage bug, but a Google bug that received a lot of comments during the 12 Betas. It is "Android System Intelligence keeps stopping". ASI used to be known as ‘Device Personalization Services’. 'Google uses Android System Intelligence to send updates for features like ‘Now Playing’, ‘Live Caption’, ... etc.

    MindTheGapps has been notified of this bug, so hopefully it will be taken care of.
    In the mean time, I just disabled it Settings/Apps/All Apps and select Show System from the 3-dot menu.
    The build has run happily without it.

    Really grateful to Nolen, Lineage, and for other builds Tommaso
    I fixed this. Next build will be fine.
