I really like this rom. Battery life is impressive compared to the stock. I had a Floyd rom installed before but had problems with the sound bug. This problem does not occur here. The only problem I had was syncing the S3 Frontier watch with the wearable app, but I got it right. If this rom were on android 10 and worked as it is currently it would be perfect.

Hi!
Good work on this ROM!
Maybe someone can help out with echo during a loudspeaker call. For example, call in Wire app has terrible echo problem. I know its a consequence of the Dual Speaker mod, but it seems it is better or worse in some ROMs. Is there a way to fix it without removing the mod, maybe limit it to only Youtube and Video viewer?

And this one is weird and maybe not even related to this ROM, but still - has anyone used OneHandedOperations+ (from patched GoodLock)? On the right side the touch area is not reacting above the middle of the screen, even though the touch sensing works everywhere. I do not have any Edge programs which could conflict.

I'm considering moving away from LineageOS 16 on my S7 because of the following :

- Hearth-rate sensor doesn't work (ok no big deal)
- The phone is randomly rebooting at least twice a week
- The camera flash doesn't work, it kinda works with OpenCamera, but the app is hanging for seconds before taking a single picture.
- The noise cancellation isn't working with speaker enabled, the other person is hearing its voice.

I don't have the time to try different roms so I need to be sure I will not get the same issues or other ones not mentioned in the FAQ.

Anyone using this ROM can give me some feedback on features/stability ?

    I just came back to this ROM again after 3 months using DotOS. Maybe I will stay on this ROM until v11 or stable DotOS release. BD is my fav ROM period.
    I have tried other ROMS just to see if they offer anything different, not because I was unhappy or had issues with this ROM. Always come back because it is a great ROM, the best out there IMHO. The dev is really helpful too, which makes a big difference.

    Using this amazing rom almost a year and it's the best custom rom I have ever tested (v9-v10) and this morning I flashed v10 again but I could not find the blackdiamond tweak app and the HKTweaks app which I was previously had (No Viper in Aroma installer too) but found HKTweaks app from the mentioned source but I cannot find that blackdiamond tweak app.

    Also the face unlock feature is missing too and I know google had taken away that but I had that feature(and those tweak apps) in your ROM before I flashed it again till this morning.
    Any fixes please?

    Thanks
    Face unlock (Trusted Face) can be found under Settings/Lock screen/ Smart lock. However, you must set up your pin/pattern and ALL of your fingerprints during the initial setup. If you skip this step (the default is Swipe) then you will not find Trusted Face anywhere.

    If you forget to do the above and require Trusted Face then you will need to factory reset and start again.

    Before you post : READ everything, and especially the install steps and F.A.Q, the rom has been tested thoroughly for a long time, so if you have an critical issue like not booting or something major, you missed the instructions, posts that are irrelevant to this project will be ignored(Constructive criticism is welcomed). If you do face a new bug however, don't just say "hey bug here fix now" provide more information, and a LOGCAT, bug reports without log-cats will most likely be ignored.

    • AOD Tap to Wake( Can't be fixed because our panel drivers needs to be updated and we can't use NFE drivers)
    • Gear Watch Connection(I still don't know why it can't work + I don't own a gear watch)

    Read this F.A.Q While the rom is Downloading.

    Q: Not passing SafteyNet.

    A : Not sure what went wrong, you could flash SafteyNet Magisk module to fix it.

    Q: How to use face unlock ?
    A : Unfortunately face unlock feature is removed officially by Google.

    Q: Can I dirty flash over Version Z.X.Y ??
    A : You can give it a shot but I'm not responsible for any errors.

    Q: How to use Samsung-Pay ?
    A : If you are here you should know already, Once you trip Knox, You cant, Forever.

    Q: Why Phone volume is too high ?
    A : Maybe because you choose dual speaker mod in aroma, Re-flash ROM and don't tick dual speaker option.

    Q: How to Get VoLte/Wifi calling ?
    A : Make sure you ticked correct OMC option in Aroma.
