Yeah gapps can cause this issue. We are official-official not official-unofficial

Hi, I'm using the unofficial version of COS with full Gapps package (except for a few apps). Is there any way to update to official with a "dirty" flash without getting stuck with a bootloop? What I'm trying to avoid is all the hassle of having to setup all my apps and preferences over again.

I got bootloop but after reflashing also gapps it boots normally and all my apps and settings were kept.

    Great rom Alibei, thanks a lot!
    Only bug for me so far is microphone when on speaker phone. It sound like I'm under water according to the persons I talk to. Normal mic and Bluetooth mic works great.
    Do you think this is firmware, gapps or ROM related? Full disclosure: I use full nikgapps with tweaked nikgapps.config to enable Android Auto and Google backups during initial setup. Any chance this could be solved if I flash latest weekly Chinese firmware? 🤔
    The mic should be and the offline charging is fixed in the next update. At least the testers said the mic quality in speaker mode is now good.

    I got bootloop but after reflashing also gapps it boots normally and all my apps and settings were kept.
    So let me check if I got everything straight. To update I must:

    1. Download the latest ROM (.zip) to my phone's storage.
    2. Reboot to Recovery.
    3. Flash the new ROM.
    4. Wipe Dalvik.
    5. Re-flash GApps.
    6. Reboot.
    PS: I have Magisk installed, do I need to follow the steps below as well?
    1. Open the Lineage zip
    2. Copy the boot.img from the zip to your phone
    3. Flash the boot.img in the recovery
    4. Flash Magisk
    5. Reboot

    Hi!
    I've got some problems with the gapps, this is what i've done step by step:
    >followed description 3-11, tried OS, looked good
    >went back to twrp, flashed core apps, worked ok but realized i have no restore function from google drive
    >3-11 again, downloaded gapps full, forced to /system
    //.config is in the afzc folder, the commented line is literally in the 4th row, but you won't find it with ctrl+f, i've spent 40 minutes with this step help me im dying//
    >installed gapps with default values
    >got my restore screen, apps and data back, but the system was crashed: home and switch app button didn't worked, I had no system navigation option in the gesture settings, the nav bar was stuck
    >clean reinstall, modified the .config and skipped pixelize, pixellauncher, chrome and corego packages and all addons except the 3 vanced ones (yt music and books also weren't installed, but these shouldn't matter)

    Now I have the gesture navigation back, buttons, nav bar also ok. Although google services need permissions to restore data. If i don't give it, the screen stucks with the data transfer logo. The system even asks for it (sms, phone and contacts maybe), went for the permissions, tried to allow all of them (lol), but sms and call logs stuck in the denied option. Clock is bugged, as alibei said.

    Also my gestures menu is kinda strange, I think I should have more options here.

    I will play with the .config tomorrow, but if anyone has a clue, how to solve this, please help :D

    [edit]
    factory reset solved the most of it, clock and restore is ok, but no gesture options (e.g. 3-finger-swipe for screenschot)

    Whatever I do, fod does not work reliably. it saves my finger all right but when it comes unlock it says not recognized all the time.

    Interestingly it was working okayish last night when I installed the new Rom but early this morning, I couldn't unlock, whatever I do I got the error :(

    I just came from the latest miui weekly and fod was calibrated before I installed ciperos

    Besides turbo charging doesn't work reliably, it stays slowly charging until like %80 then it says turbo charging. Is it normal?

    I had same issue with the permissions for Google play services. I finally managed to allow SMS permission and then I could restore all my apps and settings. I'm not fully sure what did it in the end but I forced stop google play services, cleared storage on g. play service and tried approving SMS permissions several times. I also did a reboot and finally it worked... My guesture menu also seems to lack some options now when you mention it but nothing I really miss

    I understand that if I have an EU Rom installed, I must first install a MIUI Rom and then flash this Rom?

    Thanks, after a single factory reset it worked. I have also flashed back the clean cipher and it seems like, we don't have Swipe to screenshot at all.

    I just came from the latest miui weekly and fod was calibrated before I installed ciperos

    Besides turbo charging doesn't work reliably, it stays slowly charging until like %80 then it says turbo charging. Is it normal?
    Do you use the stock cable and stock charger?

    Do you know how to make a logcat? If yes please send me one in a PM. But maybe I have an Idea now. Tucana uses two types of fod sensors. Maybe the other one is making some problems. I will look into that

    There was an app for it I think I will download it ans will try to get a logcat for you, I presume you need a logcat while charging an one when I am trying to unlock screen with fod?

      An update following the latest release; fod is better than before, somehow it is snappy and failure free atm. Recognition is faster and it fails only if I don't put my finger right.

      I ordered 33watt charger, it should arrive today. I don't feel like I need to install miui again lol :D

      Maybe camera, i can't use gcam that good, mi camera app is stupid proof for me lol :D
      The mi camera app is currently not working on cipher (Lineage hal's)

      Yep pin in the middle and red-orange headed on both USB a and usb c ends of the cable.
      How full is your battery? Because fast charge does deactivate when it is higher than 82~85%

      So the new update is out. And yes it comes with face unlock and third party fod unlock is working too. FW is for now on included.

      If you want to switch to the gapps variant, then a clean flash is advised.

      New update is out! With better battery life and I removed the yellow tint from the display colors. Maybe you have to revert your changes to the colors.

      3'rd party fod is fixed in the next CipherOS update

      Is there a way for getting rid of the warning message:
      "Trust: This build was signed with public keys" ?

      It pops up everytime when starting the system. Sorry for asking so many questions.
      Yes go to settings -> privacy -> trust -> Click on Build Signature
      3
      is there a way to install stock miui camera app on this rom? thanks
      ANX cam is currently not working well with A11. @Chemuski1 is working on a port.

      Only bug for me so far is microphone when on speaker phone. It sound like I'm under water according to the persons I talk to. Normal mic and Bluetooth mic works great.

      No it's a problem on my side. I already working on this
