[ROM][12][ARM64] Android 12 Beta 4.1 Port for J7 2016

a12 beta 4.1.png


Android 12 Beta 4.1 Port from Google Pixel 5
For Galaxy J7 2016


Notes:
This is a full firmware port, I will not accept any inquiries if you flash it on another device and brick it
I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, broken alarm, or your being stuck on TWRP/Ofox OS forever.
YOU chose to make the modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh and ignore.


Downloads:

Changelog:
Dark Google boot animation is used
Gapps are added by default
Removed Google Velvet
TrebleApp added to disable HW Overlays
Home button fixed
Dual SIM is now working

Bugs:
Rotation (HW Composer - Read below)
Bluetooth
Lockscreen lock
Video camera
NFC

More notes:
Hardware Composer - HWC is not working on anything newer than Android 11 for Exynos7870, so you have to rely on a workaround, by going to Settings > Phh Treble Settings > Misc Settings > Disable HW Overlays, this will fix every issues related to random reboots (like roation, DPI change, dark mode toggle, ...) and HWC temporarily
If you see gitches, it's due to HWC, let the phone calm down
This is purely for educational, experimental and testing purposes. It is safe to use but since Android 12 is still in beta stage, bugs are expected

How to install:
1. Download the ROM.zip and Addon.zip
2. Install and boot to OrangeFox Recovery r11.0 (not r11.0-1 or r11.1)
3. Flash Create Partition or Repartition if you haven't, skip this step if you already did
4. Wipe Cache, System, Vendor, Data
5. Flash the ROM.zip then Addon.zip
6. Reboot and enjoy
