Alright, will do. I'm using gcam 5.1 by cstark, but it happens in all apps that use the camera (Snapchat, Whatsapp, Google Lens) but in these somehow slightly less often. What happens is basically I open the app, camera turns on, works smooth for a few frames, starts to stutter, and finally freezes without even having taken a picture.
Edit: wow when simultaneously screen recording it's even worse.
Edit 2: This behaviour has been similar on almost all lineage versions I've used up until now (from LOS 15 onward). I've clean flashed more than often, which does not seem to help. Also, it's not always like this; there are moments where the camera works but it is just laggy.
Edit 3: The attached video shows worst case scenario. Most of the time it shows a few frames for a second and only then freezes.
Somehow the performance of Camera GO is a lot better. In general it has a very responsive and smooth viewfinder, and when 1) I open another camera app 2) it freezes after a few seconds 3) open Camera GO, Camera GO is still smooth. Missing out on the features that make pictures look great tho (HDR).

I was able to install it via the liniage os recovery (wasn't able to re-install TWRP)

I did the mistake of choosing the version with google apps, i am not able to use the play store due to "authentication required" (which i havn't found any way to fix).

I guess i should just install the version of lighthouse without google apps.

Im using the vs995 vanilla ROM but after installing CPUfloat and then AuroraStore trought APK, I became unable to instal any apps as the "instal" button on the pop-up simply stopped working. @xxseva44

(and does/will lighthouse include the ability to reduce fps/resolution on games like the stock can? It's pretty essential for me to run some games with reduced graphics to manage heat)

I found a solution to the issue with google play not working.

I just wiped the phone and installed the vanilla version of lighthouse without google apps. Unfortunatily no browser or app-store was included to i had to download F-droid to my computer and then transfer it to the phone.

I installed the amazon store and F-droid for now.

I tried these things first but it didn't work:

for google apps, you can use Aurora store. It's a middleman for playstore, let you browser and download anymously.

One issue with lighthouse/lineage is that the second screen area isn't being utilized particularly well. It's just black in landscape mode when it could be used for notification area or software buttons.

Yeah, shame we loose the functionality of the second screen. And same with the FPS/resolution we had on stock, without it, I can't quite run the games as cool as even stock, that might push me toward a LG based ROM like superROM/SuperV20.

Thank you so much for this wonderful ROM. The gaming performance and the battery efficiency is great. My H990DS runs much cooler too. This is 100% without a doubt better than lineage. I've been using it for a few days and there's only 1 thing I noticed. The gaming mode doesn't block notifications. Notification from Skype Lite still goes through and obstructs the screen while gaming mode is on. I'm playing Mobile Legends.

Took the dive and reset to Lighthouse and it kicks ass! I shoulda read the main description regarding the thermal control updates on 7/27/21 for CPU+GPU undervolting... the phone is a few degrees cooler during high usage... while staying more responsive than it was on LOS 17.

Pixel reduction in battery saver mode may help keep the phone even cooler, too. But there are bugs with that feature where if it is enabled:
--we cannot click on permission prompts (for media, voice, etc.), click the toggle buttons on app notifications, or even install/update Play apps while it is on (something about apps drawing over). Have to disable it first. Would be great if this could be fixed.

I was planning on going to LOS 18 due which has more features and minor customizations and have more updates, but the changelog is just fixes instead of real improvements. Plus, I'd have to figure out how to undervolt and stuff on it.

The other thing I like is that it comes packaged with a minimal google package so I don't have to worry about which GAPPS package to flash.
After resetting from LOS 17... all I did was flash LH and then the latest Magisk.
No errors or permissive needed or flashing the stock Nougat and all (since I already did that going to LOS 17). Camera is responsive and even better than it was on stock or LOS 17 which is cool.

The only other thing at this point I miss is the System UI tuner so I can remove annoying status bar icons (I disable DND, airplane, alarm and move the clock to the right). Not sure if there is an app I can install for that since Custom Navigation Bar isn't supported.

Oh and as vintologi says above regarding more options for the software buttons would be great (like reversing their order and having them always stay and actions if button is held).

Anyone else have issues with Titanium Backup and OandbackupX?
I'm rooted and every time I initiate a backup of apps+data, it crashes and corrupts the SD card.
  • It didn't do this before on LOS 17.1.
  • I tried different SD cards with formatting.
  • It happens even when I backup normal user apps.
  • Pixel reduction and battery saver is turned off
  • TWRP backup works fine
This was one of the main things I was looking for being rooted, to be able to easily backup individual apps and data.

Edit: As mentioned here: I had to **disable the default "STOP-CONT pre- and postprocessing"** option in OAndBackupX and then batch backup and restore worked (at least for user apps). I guess I will have to deal with some data corruption.

    Lte should work assuming your carrier doesn't require volte, and second display works as an extension of the main, not as a standalone display
    Telus dosen't require VoLTE iirc. They don't even support the LG V20 for VoLTE and Wifi-calling anyway. And my previous phone was LTE and ran fine.

    definitely very outdated. Are you talking about this app? Last update was a year ago but I'll take whatever I can get.
    Yes, it is fully compatible with Android 11, Titanium didn't get any update for A11... it seems to be abandoned...

    Did you ever try the sdcard Magisk module with Migrate? Seems like I will have to backup to internal SD otherwise. I don't wanna get my SD card wiped again for the like 5th time lol.
    This sdcard issue be the root of the issue of why TB and OandbackupX are crashing too when I try to batch backup to sd.
    Yes I use the ExtSD access enabler module
