Sorry, I was unprecise. Does double pressing the power button to launch camera work with screenlock active ? Not life essential, but would be great to quickly shoot a pic without unlocking the screenlock. My gut feeling is that the camera becomes ready just a few millisecs later than internally expected. Because it is active behind the error message "cannot connect to camera".
I got only a vibration and the screen unlocks and the "top menu bar" is restarting. I got no camera, and no "cannot connect to camera" error.

GPS is working and better than two releases ago! I got 0 lock in the previous build, but 0913 version is good! :)

EDIT: I got plenty locked satellites, but NO gps position. I was on a plain, so no obstacles were there.
I walked a km and nothing happened: NO GPS lock. :( So I still cannot use GPS reliably.

I noticed that the sms service is slow, when the phone is left screen locked, sms doesn't come. When I open the screen, suddenly I got plenty of smses. Weird. Battery saver is off.

That some people have problems with the GPS, I can not explain.
I will today upload another rom to test (crDroidAndroid). I use the build for a few days now and GPS works fine for me.
The issue with sms reception delay is in my opinion due to the AOSP source. This is known since Android 10. I always use the sms app from google.


Edit:

crDroidAndroid-11.0-20211017-serranovelte-v7.11

After the fresh installation of the new build, the GPS lock may take some time.
After that goes quickly.

I did a full system/data format and I put up a 17.1. SNR is not so high, I have to wait a few seconds (or minutes, check photo) but then it is working.

I will test more tomorrow. I got same SNR in the 18.1 too.

I have zero problems with LOS 18, great job!
But I'm still tempted by your CRDroid version. Just for fun, I'll install it. :)

Update: I am switching OFF my phone for the night. Therefore every morning gps location searching is slow. But then it is okay in the latest version. Maybe that's why the slow initial location finding...

You don't have to reboot the system when camera hangs.
Simply go into the Settings-app info-camera or opencamera and clear storage/cache.
You can also catch a log and post it here (i have had no problems with the camera).
I can't say anything about the camera in telegram, I don't use it myself.
Maybe try with other preview resolutions.
Thanks mernurisha for the new update. :) I just flashed LinageOS Octobe build.

I still see occasional problems with camera (the weird camera signal in Telegram, sometime "crash" of camera which causes a plain dark screen on Signal or an error message in "Open Camera" (see attached screenshot). I tried your trick with clearing storage/cache of the "Open Camera" when this occurs but it seemed to not help? Reboot helps always. The crashes seem to happen randomly, at least I haven't noticed a pattern so far.

Regarding GPS: for me it works fine in your LineageOS 18 ROM. :) It takes some time to find initial signal but that has been like this in all phones I've used so far with Android OpenSource (without Google location service etc). So I think it is "normal" in this ROM. :)
I found however that the first GPS location is faster when the data connection is on (maybe the phone does an update of satelite positions or something?) so maybe this can help some people here having problems.

I used crDroid now 4 days. Works very well!
Thus, I can't contribute to the troubleshooting that some have, unfortunately, because I can't reproduce any of it.

Edit:
I don't use gapps. Maybe that makes the difference.

Does the wifi, camera, bluetooth work with this rom ???

Is there a simple way to get MicroG working properly on the CrDroid rom? Background location and SMS are not able to be checked. Would probably use it as a daily driver if this could be fixed. Thanks in advance everyone!

It says I have a GT-I9515I on the back of the device. (Engraved behind the back covering)
However, when I use
TWRP-3.4.0-0-serranovelte or
TWRP-3.5.2_9 (as linked above)

The device stays offline in adb (Linux XUbuntu 21.10, latest platform-tools), no matter how often I restart the device and/or the adb server, or which USB Port / cable I use. Using a TWRP for serranoveltexx (https://dl.twrp.me/serranoveltexx/) shows the device in recovery mode in adb when booting in TWRP, but I couldn't sideload any serranovelte images.

It says something like:
Couldn't sideload. This image is for serranovelte, serranoveltexx. This device is .

Any hints, like
- how can I find out which device I truly have?
- are there any other versions of TWRP i could try?
- are there any other ROMs known to work?

    Thanks @mernurisha for your work! With the newest (and previous) rom, there is some GPS bug. In 17.1: perfect. I got 0 usable sat in 18.1 :( Any idea?! I dirty upgraded from 17.1, but a clean 18.1 is the same as this:
