SIM cards are recognized on Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) only in about 50% of reboots. No LTE, only 3G (the sign "E" next to the signal indicator).
The phone turns off from time to time. Sometimes keeps up for few days, sometimes shuts off multiple times per day and needs few reboots to see both SIM cards.
Clean flash used when installed.

This is all I did:
Full wipe in TWRP
Install the latest unofficial unified S6/S6 Edge Lineage 15.1 ROM (4th September)
Install latest Stock 8.1 ARM64 GApps
Boot the phone to Android
Sign in with my Google account and let it finish setup (I said no to restoring my apps)
Modify the fingerprint in the build.prop file via TWRP
Install Google Pay and add my card to GPay that was already added to my Google account

It worked first time.

I have never had much luck with Magisk, even after following the various guides to the letter, however it is supposed to work around SafetyNet.

Still works for me - I paid in Aldi last night. S6 SM-G920F, Latest LOS 14.1, latest OpenGApps Super package. Modified build.prop fingerprint (included in Official zerofltexx LineageOS 14.1 now - although this 'fix' hasn't been added to S6 Edge SM-G925F Official Lineage 14.1 but editing the build.prop with a valid 7.0 string fixes this).

Cheers
Andy

Sorry - Just read what I wrote there... You are talking about unofficial LOS15.1.... If you have installed a newer version then check whether root is installed. Enes includes root in his unofficial builds based on his trees. You should be able to remove root using the .zip here - https://download.lineageos.org/extras

Hi, this is really good Rom. Smooth and nice ... but I don`t know why driving mode doesn`t work in google maps??? Is this only my device`s problem? Please help. On map I can see wright positon but when I hit "drive to...somewere" - the blue dot does not turn into a triangle and it`s useless :(. I tried all possible settings and nothing...

SM-920F

Just tried on a S6 and a S6 Edge both running Lineage 15.1 and the driving mode where the blue arrow appears doesn't work on either. Bizarrely the S6 Edge has been wiped and it was the 1st time I have opened Google Maps on it. When I initially clicked 'Start driving' it flipped into the 3D map with the blue arrow for a couple of seconds before going back to the birds eye view and blue dot.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 T310 with unofficial lineage 14.1 and I have just tried it on here and its the same.

However I did a bit of a search and found this - https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/6us9f3/google_maps_now_shows_an_aerial_view_when_you/

Seems its a feature of Google maps...

Just been out in my car and I can confirm this is how it behaves - make sure 'Keep map north up' is NOT checked in the navigation settings as the map won't flip into 3D view - the blue arrow is displayed once its happy it knows the direction you are travelling, but it will display the birds eye 2D view. I also have an Android 8.0 head unit and the behaviour with Google Maps is the same with this.

    I have the G920L and want to try this ROM on my phone. Has anyone installed it on the G920L yet? Is there any specific bugs or problems to watch out for with this specific model?

    Thanks in advance.

    I answered this previously. There is nothing wrong - its a feature of Google Maps. The driving view only kicks in when Maps works out what direction you are travelling in. If it doesn't know then it shows the birds eye view with the blue dot. As soon as it works out that you are moving and the direction it flips into 3D with the blue arrow (make sure 'Keep map north up' is not checked in the Navigation settings or it won't flip into 3D mode).
    Older versions of Google Maps didn't behave like this. It seems to be a new(ish) feature.

    Hey i installed the rom on my g920f. The rom is very fast and beautiful but i have only one weird reason. Magisk is not fully compatible (Maybe a kernel incompatibility?) Magiskhide and root works perfect but every module that install it installs it with success but it does not load it at the startup and therefore i see no module apks on my drawer. Can you help me understand whats wrong? Thanks!

    Please help me !!
    He shows error 7...my device is g920f ..
    Is that mean my device is not supported ????
    Your device is definetely supported i use this exact rom as my daily driver on my sm-g920f. However your error 7 might be related to an outdated recovery version. Have tried installing the latest twrp from here? (https://dl.twrp.me/zeroflte/twrp-3.2.3-0-zeroflte.img.tar.html). Also before you flash the rom you need to wipe dalvik cache/data/system/cache (not the internal storage tho). If you have the latest twrp installed have you followed the installation instructions properly from the post?

    By the way this rom is lacking the audio_submix file that is required for miracast to work. :(
    @enesuzun2002 can you give a look at this pleasee

    Really enjoying this ROM, but dual sim on G920F seems unstable

    Hi,

    Thanks for this great ROM. I first tried LineageOS 14.1 on my G920F dual sim Samsung Galaxy S6, but it wouldn't detect the sim cards. After installing this 15.1 ROM the dual sim works... mostly. I've had it installed for about 5 hours now, and rebooted the phone about four times. Of that, it wouldn't detect any sim card twice, it only detected one sim card one of the times, and the last reboot it detected both sim cards. So it seems a bit of lottery.

    What can I do to help improve dual sim support? Would you like any logs?

      Note: This is not a ROM based on the ROM shipped with your device.

      LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1 (Oreo), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

      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. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. 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 out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

      Features Overview:
      https://www.xda-developers.com/lineageos-15-feature-list-overview-screenshots-video/

      Custom Features Overview:
      • Custom Kernel
      • Custom Power Hal by TeamNexus
      • Many More

      What's working:
      • Telephony (Calls, SMS, Mobile Data)
      • WiFi
      • Bluetooth
      • NFC
      • GPS (Plain Device Mode Works)
      • Fingerprint
      • Camera (Needs Improvements)

      What's not working:
      • Obviously Samsung's own features such as Samsung Pay, KNOX, Theme Center, Game Launcher, etc. won't be ported to LineageOS. We may have our own implementation to similar functions, though.
      • IMS services (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc). Samsung has their own proprietary implementation. It is not really possible to easily port that to LineageOS.

      Instructions:
      • Make sure TWRP has been installed and functional.
      • Download the latest build (and optionally gapps).
      • Reboot to recovery
      • Wipe data and cache (required if you switch from other ROMs)
      • Flash the latest build (and gapps)
      • Reboot

      Downloads:

      Reporting Bugs:

      • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
      • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
      • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)

      Can You put also S6 flat stock ROM build.propfingerprint code?
      Regards.

      See here in the Official Lineage 14.1 thread - https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=77273097&postcount=608

      The last two updates have included the fingerprint:
      Code:
      samsung/zerofltexx/zeroflte:7.0/NRD90M/G920FXXU5EQG3:user/release-keys
      which allows Lineage 14.1 to pass the CTS profile check.
