thank you for all your hard work and painstaking efforts.
@techminati and team
precisely what are the Bluetooth bugs for you please specify
I use Havoc GSI ROM for 2 years and just went back to stock and I am looking for another ROM with VoLTE & Bluetooth working . the problem with the previous ROM was certain bluetooth devices could not connect properly. they would show up as fully connected but doing phone call there was no voice export to headset. Audio worked well. and certain other headsets connected normally without any issues. the headsets that had issues would connect normally to other phones.
I'm not good at flashing a rom.
For my phone I use orange fox official recovery and I also tested with TWRP. But when I try to flash the rom I always get a 255 error.
Can anyone help me on what is a 255 error and how not to get it.

to install the recovery I used the commands: fastboot flash recovery.img then I flashed orange-fox with adb sideload

then I tested to put this lineage os.zip on my SD card then flach it put 255 error and I also tested via adb sideload and it did not work

in the instructions to install it says to flach 64Bits Vendor but I'm supposed to find it where?

I'm sorry for my english which can have problems I'm not english and I use a translator (deepl.com)
bro go to telegram and search for our device group their u will get a recovery.img flash that recovery as that is 64 bit and u r using a 32 bit recovery that is why u got this error

    LineageOS is a free, community-built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review.

    * Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    Reporting Bugs
    DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed any root implementation
    Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless). Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

    • Have custom recovery installed
    • Flash 64Bits Vendor
    • Download the latest LineageOS Build and GApps(Optional)
    • Wipe Data
    • Flash the ROM and GApps(Optional)
    • Enjoy the rom
