Thank you so much

dirty flash didn't work for me so i flashed the rom cleanly. magisk and EdXposed work so well. the default wallpaper picker is limiting me from cropping an image the way i want to so i used wallpaper picker from GApps, battery life is as good as the oreo rom you just released recently. navigation bar menu wasn't found in the setting although i can search it and it shows where it is. currently running gravitybox and greenify on EdXposed and redmi note 2 tool to optimize my battery life. instagram still stutters every time a video and or a live feed is being played

update :
instagram stutter issue is not as bad as the one in the LOS 15.1, battery life is slightly worse than LOS 15.1's, substratum doesn't work as good as in the LOS 15.1

The phone got a new life! Thank you!
But there is a serious problem - it is impossible to connect to a hidden wifi access point. In advanced settings support for a hidden access point is on.
if make AP visible SSID then phone may connected, but if make AP hidden SSID then phone not see this AP and not connect even if AP name was saved!
WiFi Analyzer application installed on this phone shows hidden APs without SSID.
I had this problem and with lineage-15.1-20200422 firmware too.
Please fix this problem! I need it very much!

want to share my experience using this rom.
previously i was using miuipro so more or less i compare these 2 roms.
PROS:
1 pretty good battery life
2 better performance
3 it's lighter
4 better than lollipop

CONS:
1 it reboots randomly (more than 10 times in a day)
2 the sim cards sometimes not detected, when detected the signal have X mark sign
3 confusing settings menu for me
4 not support non-mainstream icon app in status bar
5 can't play media (music, YouTube) from BT speaker

after all really appreciate your work
thanks ;)

it's still in beta so we may experience some bugs along the way. you might wanna try the more stable LOS 15.1 released by him as well last month. it has better battery life and it's easier to install magisk and xposed in that very rom. though i like how substratum works in this LOS 16, i still have better experience overall in LOS 15.1 as it's more stable and the only bug i encountered was some stuttering on instagram in both vanilla and modded app. i don't really use it though, so it's not a big of a deal for me

CUSTOM KERNEL: [TESTING]
It may fix some problems for some devices. Flash via TWRP.
Kernel LOS-16.0
can you tell us what problems it will be fixed?

For random reboot i tested to suitch in development option the android system web view, for now no random reboot, continue the test.
sorry i don't fully understand because i looked to development option>system webview there was only 1 option then i installed android system webview from play store so i switch to the new one and the problem was still there

Thank you so much for reviving my secondary phone.
I was searching and waiting for updates and now it is there! All problems with auto rebooting is easy to fix. Just flash kernel in thread bellow and ROM will run normally. I hope updates will rollout in future :eek:.

for those with problematic mobile data not to connect sim2:
edit build.prop change : ro.mtk_enable_md1 = 1
to
ro.mtk_enable_md2 = 1

or just add :
persist.radio.default.sim=0

What was the problem exactly ? sim2 didn't detected? no calls ? or no internet connection ? or something else?

and from where did u get this idea ?

if you use mobile data from sim 2 it can't connect often, it has to restart repeatedly, sorry master if it interferes, just delete my unnecessary post,
note: i love your incredible rom. thank you, master
