I cannot pay with Google Pay. Magisk hide is on, Safetynet passes, and google Pay reports good configuration, however when I put Phone near terminal nothing happens. I'm using latest version. NFC tags are readed well, so nfc works.
Also, I tried using my bank app which support nfc payments and also nothing was happening.
H870, Magisk 22
Nvm, other terminals work fine. Gpay is working ok

    Hi,
    I see that the build update list is almost identical to Havoc 4.2.
    are these two roms identical, except for the skin?
    is there any difference performance wise?
    feature wise?

    Cheers,
    M

    Hi. Havoc and Lineage share the same trees and kernel, hence performance is similar (if not the same).
    Then each ROM has different features. While Lineage is closer to a pure stock Android experience, Havoc is more customization oriented.
    It's up to your preference and the best way is to give it a try.

    The ROM works smoothly, in the car I have to connect to the bloutooth manually, but the battery drains very quickly ... about 6 hours. What can I do with this?

    The new kernel needs tunning, flash the latest beta build, it should help a little with that.


    You can also use a kernel manager to underclock applying your settings on boot.


    These are my settings. I don't use games, so I don't notice any difference in performance:

    CPU
    Little cpu's to max clock of 1056
    Big cpu's to max clock of 1670)
    Power saving (wq_power_saving) Enabled

    Virtual memory
    Zram set to lz4 compression, 2048Mb size
    Virtual memory options, VFS Pressure cache to 200

    I/O scheduler
    I ensure i'm using CFQ scheduler for I/O
    Readhead on internal 128kb and on external 1024

    With those settings I have no drain or overheat. And hopefully we will keep improving this new kernel.

    Clean flash of March 11th on H870 and NFC does not appear to work. I flashed the rom, then the trash remover, but I am trying to de-google so no Gapps. No idea if that affects it.

    I'd recommend you to try using build 20210224. Fast charge and Google Recorder won't work but battery drain, wakelocks and temps will be much better. That way you can wait until battery issues are fixed in the next builds.

    If you still want to get back to 17.1 you don't need to flash any other recovery. In fact, this is the recommended recovery for A10 and A11 roms.

    Thank you for answering.
    I will back for a while on 17.1.
    My problems with 18.1 was the battery, but I also had a problem with slow data transfer over the network and wifi. bluetooth did not connect to the car itself, but I had to connect manually each time. Good luck at work, you are doing a good job, thank you.

      Is it normal that my device appears as not rooted for apps after flashing this rom? I have to install magisk and only then apps like Smartpack Kernel Manager works well.

      Yes, it's normal. The rom is not pre rooted.

      LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

      Code:
      #include <std_disclaimer.h>
      /*
      * Your warranty is now void.
      *
      * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
      * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
      * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
      * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
      * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
      *
      */

      What's working?
      WiFi
      RIL
      Mobile data
      GPS
      Camera
      Flashlight
      Camcorder
      Bluetooth
      Fingerprint reader
      NFC
      Flashlight
      Sound
      Vibration
      microG support

      Known issues
      - VoLTE doesn't work. LG uses a proprietary implementation of VoLTE that is not compliant with AOSP. Fixable? Probably not.
      - Encryption doesn't work

      Bug reporting
      If you want to report bugs, please always indicate device variant, Gapps package, Magisk version and Magisk modules installed.

      Prerequisites
      Your device must be unlocked and running a custom recovery. Click here if your variant is H870 or US997 and here for H872.

      Oreo or Pie bootloader required
      H870: if you are running the latest Stock Pie, there's no need to update your bootloader.
      US997 and H872: if you are running the latest Stock Oreo, there's no need to update your bootloader.
      In case you aren't running those stock versions, you'll need to update your bootloader by flashing the right one for your variant.
      Bootloaders for all LG G6 variants

      Android 11 recovery required
      After you unlocked your bootloader and flashed the suggested TWRP version, you'll need to upgrade your recovery to have A11 support. Old recoveries will not work with Android 11. OrangeFox and SkyHawk are both TWRP based and are fully compatible with this rom. You can flash them like any other ZIP (no need to unzip). Once flashed, you can use the "reboot to recovery" option to start flashing the rest of the packages.
      OrangeFox Recovery
      SkyHawk Recovery

      Instructions
      - Clean flash is mandatory
      - Backup everything
      - Unlock your device and install TWRP following the prerequisites guides above
      - Update your recovery to the latest OrangeFox or SkyHawk (otherwise flashing Android 11 based roms will fail). They are flasheable ZIPs, no need to unzip
      - Update your bootloader if needed (fingerprint reader doesn't work with old bootloaders)
      - Download the latest build and Roar Gapps (Mini Me package is mandatory, other packages will cause issues)
      - Reboot to recovery
      - Wipe system, data, cache, dalvik
      - Flash the latest build and Roar Gapps Mini Me
      - Magisk (optional)
      - Reboot and enjoy
