I am aware of the GCAm bug when the special features are turned on and I tried to fix it but I can't as the blobs needed to fix it is under DMCA takedown so if I add those back, then the ROM might be taken out that's why I had to sacrifice it. I will try to fix it in the later builds but if you want, you can use this zip to fix it for the time being.
Will this ZIP fix the general camera issues on Redmi Note 7, which are also found on LineageOS or is it fixing some bug which is specific to gcam and RevengeOS only?

As far as I am concerned, the issue has been fixed in the latest update. Are you using the latest build?
I am currently on the 11 days old lineage-18.1-20210907-nightly-lavender-signed and the camera freezes in gcam's night mode after some time. I just saw the latest 20210914 build includes many changes related to android_device_xiaomi_sdm660-common. I will flash it and will report back.

Do you know which commit is supposed to fix the camera - is it this one?

Okay, let me know.

No, this isn't the commit.

Result:
The camera still freezes after some time in gcam's night mode on lineage-18.1-20210914-nightly-lavender-signed.

Some more details:
While in night mode it is still possible to take pictures as long as you do it before the camera picture freezes (which happens after 10 - 60 seconds), the astrophotography mode produces solid black pictures. (Edit: This is the same behavior as I have observed in earlier LineageOS 18.1 versions)
Tested with BSG's newest stable gcam MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV1r_MGC.

It is happening because of some missing blobs. You can flash the zip and it should be fixed. Let me know, buddy.

The zip didn't help - camera is still freezing in gcam's night mode after some time on LineageOS.

* ROM: lineage-18.1-20210914-nightly-lavender-signed
* Firmware: V12.5.1.0.QFGMIXM
* Vendor: V11.0.1.0.QFGMIXM (not 100% sure, but there is no newer vendor image available on https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/archive/vendor/lavender/ for lavender)
* gcam: MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV1r_MGC

Understood. It will be better if you could ask the LineageOS maintainer to fix it, buddy.

So, this is because the ROM is using File Based Encryption system which is not supported by OrangeFox recovery at the moment. There is an unofficial TWRP by Ratoriku which supports that. You can find it on Telegram, by using that particular recovery the spam will be gone completely. You didn't make any mistakes so, don't worry. If you still want to use the OrangeFox recovery, you can ignore such spam for the time being. Thank you.

    Hi thanks for the great ROM, I haven't tried yet but looks awesome based on comments.
    So, I have few doubts before trying this ROM. I am on stock MIUI Global_12.0.2, kernel_4.4.192-perf+, Android_10, Redmi Note 7s. Yet too root and install custom recovery.

    So after rooting and flashing OrangeFox recovery (device is not encrypted so wont prefer to go for other custom recovery).
    1. Do I need to flash any specific OS/kernel version before flashing this ROM?
    2. In the main post you suggest FlameGApps but in the comments you suggest NikGApps, which one to prefer?
    3. When you say Banking Apps works by default, (I am not gonna root this ROM) does this also apply to GPay as it is pretty good at detecting root/custom OS?
    4. Anything else you would suggest as this is gonna be the first ROM I am gonna install?

    Thanks again for the awesome ROM and support.
    Hi, try it. I hope you'll like it. So, that's not a big problem. You don't need root beforehand, just install a custom recovery to install the ROM.

    1. If you want to flash any custom kernel on this ROM, you'll have to flash 4.19 kernels. But you won't need to flash anything before flashing the ROM.
    2. It's not a big deal, all of them are just fine. You can use any one of them.
    3. Yep, banking apps work by default. As far as I am concerned, it is applicable for GPay as well.
    4. I don't think, you'll need anything else. By the way, I suggest you use a different TWRP that is specific to this ROM so that you won't face any problems. Here is the link to the TWRP. https://dl.akr-developers.com/?file=lavender/twrp-4.19/twrp-3.5.2_9-0-4.19-lavender.img

    Let me know if you face any more problems. I will try my best to help you and I hope you will love this ROM. Thank you.

    Hello.

    I've been using this Rom for about a week and it's great! Very slick, well done.

    Just found one strange little issue; I can only take screenshots of the launcher. Screenshot in any app fails.

    The screenshot noise happens, but no image is saved (and no error popup)

    I've tried with and without the three finger gesture disabled, its the same either way.

    Screenshots work fine from the homescreen (revengelauncher) but nowhere else.

    Do I have some permission set wrong?

    Any clues appreciated.
    Thank you so much for the wonderful review.

    So, basically, we changed the screenshot implementation and that broke it. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon. Also, you are not doing it wrong so, don't worry.

    ok so i flashed this rom on my redmi note 7 yea works fine but its for my fiance she wants a different rom now BUT every time i go into recovery and try to wipe data or format anything it says operation not permitted also im assuming its encrypted i know it is but orangefox dose not prompt me to put in a passcode ive tryed making it a simple passcode pattern and i jsut dont know how to fix it ive tried everything is this an android 11 thing what can i do.
    Hey! So, I understood your point. Basically, OrangeFox cannot decrypt a 4.19 FBE ROM successfully. We have to use a different recovery for it. I hope, if you use https://dl.akr-developers.com/?file=lavender/twrp-4.19/twrp-3.5.2_9-0-4.19-lavender.img this recovery, then your problem will be fixed, and if you can please, format your data once. Let me know, thank you.

    Update: Around 20% battery drop over a night in idle state, pretty bad. Any settings need to be tweaked? I went through all Settings but could not find anything that would help.
    You can try changing the kernel.

    Can you point the exact version I need to flash ? OldCam or NewCam version ? I'm a bit lost. I miss the ability to charge my phone since your latest update.

    Also this is my daily driver, very snappy, I really like it, amazing job.
    Thank you so much. No worries, can you wait for some more hours, please? I am planning to release an update today in some hours.
