Been using this ROM for 2 days now and I'm loving it. I missed a lot LOS on my phone, THANKS FOR YOUR WORK!!! Loving loving this build. Thank for your hard work building this ROM and working to make it always better. I will continue to use LOS in my daily basis :)

Also, I would like to report minor things that I found on the ROM, so maybe you and any other users can check/confirm them, and if you have time you could look into them too:
1. Sound quality (and I think volume too) are a little but lower than the previous ROMs I've used for J7P.
2. Camera is sometimes unstable when using it from apps to record videos (record a video from Whatsapp or Telegram to send it to someone, video gets frozen on an image and is unplayable, and it says a wrong duration, like 9hrs of video when it's only 10secs).
3. "Lift to check phone" under Ambient Display settings doesn't work, at least on my phone, and I confirmed that my phone sensors are working with an app.
4. There is some UI lag when pulling down the status bar, but it's minor.

I appreciate all your work in this ROM, thanks you a lot again.

Yea all these are minor bugs i noticed after release. I'll try to fix em soon.

i love this lineage OS rom but the screen delay has gotten worse for me in this latest release i want to use it as a day to day rom but until that bug gets fixed i can't cause i need my phone for emergencies and can't risk having to fiddle with my phone for a few minutes to get it to come back on :(

none the less i appreciate your work on this lineage os for J7 Prime it really is a great rom from the time i've installed it to try it out i look forward to when it's stable and no more screen delay bugs....thanks again :)

It works, which is awesome, but unfortunately I can't keep using this ROM because the screen delay bug is waaaaaaay too severe, I don't know how many reboots it takes to fix this, I don't know why it happens, but when it does, my phone's screen just blacks out and it doesn't come back on. I'll install this again once the screen delay bug is fixed. But still, you're doing great work OP! I wish you luck in developing the ROM further :D

Hi I've used this rom for week but when I changed between LTE/3G/2G but nothing changed ( H+ on signal icon, internet speed, etc) and i think i'm using 2G instead 3G ( because my internet speed is super slow.. ). Am i right or not? Pls rep and fix it. Sorry for my bad English.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

Known Issues
- Sometimes screen on delay once after a reboot

Installation:
  1. Download the zip
  2. Wipe data/factory reset (Needed on first install)
  3. Flash LineageOS
  4. Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package
  5. Reboot

Downloads:
Latest LineageOS Build 4

Old Versions:

GAPPS: MindTheGapps (recommended)

NOTE:
- A clean flash is always recommended. Make sure you format /data and /system before flashing
- If you face video recording problems or poor camera quality then use Footej Camera app
- Make sure you flash gapps before first boot to prevert FC
- If you face any FC then its probably due to GAPPS, so don't blame me because Lineage doesn't support them in any way.

Rom is very nice, but there are minor problems.

1.Camera sometimes does not work
2. It opens late when it locks up.
3.When restarted, the screen becomes dark and is recovering too late

Is it? when i lock my phone, delay too much in turn on, like 3 minutes....
Hi there, in this version that bug still not fixed so don't restart your phone :eek:
Set screen timeout to 30m and when you restart it by mistake, you just have to wait 2-3m to wake your phone only onetime and then that bug will disappear until you restar your phone again.
P/s: this work for me lol

    If you are facing some bugs other than the ones mentioned in the thread i recommend you to make a clean install with no additional addons you may have installed, and check if those bugs persist because many a times people use some scripts or tweaks for performance/battery tuning and end up with some things broken

    New build in 3 days with screen recording, bt calls and incall audio cutoff fixed.

    Sorry for being too late, i was busy with college stuff.

    Also note that voLTE is bit tricky to be fixed. I've worked on it a few times but couldn't fix it. I'll enable volte services in next build so that you'll can try to fix it your way(tw devs), maybe by pushing ims apks, libs, jars, csc and other stuff. That's too much :eek:
    Also if anyone can find a samsung device with volte working on AOSP(non treble) It'll be great:mad:
