Hi JFK1975,
I have deleted the download link because there was an issue (sms) with the last build.
The new fixed build will be ready for download again in about an hour.

Nice weekend

Thanks mernurisha for your work. I am downloading and plan to upgrade from the July build to the current september build.

GPS worked for me but I also noticed that the first localization takes long time.

There is a bug that I noticed, that is maybe connected to this issue from @msbln . The camera seems to lose the connection from time to time. When the camera connection is lost (in random manner?), in Singal, only a black image is shown, my campera app (OpenCamera) will show an message "camera cannot be connected". etc. The only solution to resolve the issue of not-connected camera is a reboot of the entire system.

Another problem is about the camera in the Telegram app. "In app preview of the picture" in Telegram, the camera shows a green edge and blurry lines, however after taking the photo, it is just fine. See the attached images (first the preview in the app and then the photo that is actually taken).

So I suppose there is a driver problem with the camera somehow?

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.
 
Hello there!
I have a few small issues with this ROM.
First, if I launch the camera from the lockscreen with the shortcut (double tap the on/off-button) the camera can't connect. I don't know whether this is known or can be fixed, but it'd be nice if you could look at it.
Second, the mobile network menu is kinda unreliable and freezes often. I'm from Germany, my internet provider is Telekom.
I don't want to sound demanding, this is mostly for documentation.
Thanks for all the effort with this ROM!

Did your previous build work well on Telekom "mobile network menu" ? I provided an issue previously about telekom: https://gitlab.com/LineageOS/issues/android/-/issues/2206

Update: Tried the newest version (lineage-18.1-20210918-UNOFFICIAL-serranovelte.zip, dirty flashed it) and GPS isn't working! :(
I got multiple satellites in view, but 0 in use! :( There are no SNR.
The previous build was better (lineage-18.1-20210913-UNOFFICIAL-serranovelte.zip), I got many "in use", and had SNR.
For sure: Cleared the AGPS data, with https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.chartcross.gpstest
@mernurisha: Please fix that GPS issue! Thanks for your work.

GPS is working for me. However, I can't turn on the flashlight. It says "camera in use", which is not true. The camera itself works fine. Anyone else with that issue?

Yeah, same here:
Cannot connect to camera issue (from screenlock on double press on power button)

Opening camera by double pressing the power button works.
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".

This is not because of the ROM, I would say. GPS works fine and fast for me.
Hello,
I found the previous version (lineage-18.1-20210822-UNOFFICIAL-serranovelte) and the GPS works. I then updated to the current version (lineage-18.1-20210918-UNOFFICIAL-serranovelte) and the GPS works too! I now have battery drain problems that I cannot explain to myself. Fully charged in the evening, it only has 40% in the morning. I need to investigate. At this time I will not be installing this version on my second i9195i until I get better performance and reliability.
Thank you again for your help

    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.

    Thank you mernurisha for your work. The ROM is almost perfect.
    Camera has bugs. Installing OpenCamera solves the problem.
    OpenGApps slows down the system. BiTGApps makes the system very fast.
    I hope my comments will be useful.

    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.
