only issue for me is wifi doesn't see my hide network,i registered it but it stays on saved networks page. but it connects perfectly to normal networks
EDIT:File managers do not work properly or not open at all (ex. Xplore)
EDIT 2: How to grant root for adb? There is no option for that in Dev settings

Total commander works for me.

Run "adb root" in your Terminal

Wow. I'm speechless. Just bought Android O Substratum theme yesterday, because I thought alpha release will come a little later. I'm downloading it now!

Well anyway, congratulations for everyone! :victory:

Apologizes in advance if "alternative" sensors end up broken :p I hope they won't!
When I said 'now' I wanted to say 'later'. During my holidays, I don't know how, I lost my 16 GB SD :(. I bought a new one on eBay and it may took a month. I will find another sd card tomorrow and see if I cand test it

Now it's time for feedback. (I'll write what's work and what's not, if it's written on first post, I will still write it)

- Buggy camera (can't save video recording and no 1080p recording, I use PMSCameraNextMod and stock camera)

- Bluetooth is buggy but work, especially Settings>Bluetooth (if opened, Bluetooth keep turning on and off) you need a Bluetooth device that request to pair.
I test it with my bluetooth headphone and it's connected and working.

- a bit sluggish on transition and animation
- Files doesn't show internal SD, any downloaded file like apk needs to be "copy to" to external SD with Files in order to open it from Files My mistake, sorry. Thanks @JuniorCaesar

- longer boot time compared to los 14.1. (I counted the boot animation circle, in 14.1 it's around 7-8 round. In 15 it took more than 10 round before lineage os logo show up)

- everything else is working or not used by me.

I was going to test nfc, but it seems that there is no other people's phone being unused. :p
That's all for now I think :good:

Bad news - they are broken... All of them :'(
But it's bootable and most of the thing works (apart from BT etc.).

I can even login to Snapchat and take picture but only with front camera - cannot switch to back one.

Also - is there something added regarding "low ram" or something like that? Because Chrome browser switched itself to that simple tabs switch (without "3D tabs") and without animations...

But overall, it's super-fast for a ROM in alpha stage :D
