The same applies to the LED. After a restart the LED works for a while. I think it comes from an active rule from "please don't disturb".

IMHO this is the biggest issue of that ROM, as I can't fully rely on the notification LED.
my assumption is, that the issue is caused by loading to 100% and leaving it on the charger for a longer time. and the other situation causing it seems to be when the charge goes below 15% and the low battery warning starts to notify, then also after a while the LED stops working.

I made a little investigation around battery drain. Battery drain causes GPS, in betterbatterystats app is kernel bcm4773_wake_lock, which after use eg. gps navigation still running and the system cannot go into deepsleep mode. if i turn off location in settings problem is gone.
Btw thanks enesuzun2002 for this LOS builds.

I always have location off. Battery depletes very fast.

I've been testing this ROM for a week now.
Unfortunately I have a big issues with the camera.. I always have to reboot if I want to take photos, tried several camera apps still the same.
And just like other users the battery drains very quickly.

Hope there is a quick fix! Thx a lot to the developers for working on this ROM I'm so glad having LOS16 on my S6 !!

(G920F, microG, last update)

Call disconnects

The ROM itself is very good and I have no issues with the new update 20191215 so far.

However, the line disconnects after a few seconds when I am in a call. Seems like the touchscreen is still sensitive and I might hang off with my face?

I always have location off. Battery depletes very fast.
Following up on the hint you were referring to, I turned location into "energy-saving" mode (so GPS off). That seemed to help a bit, but sometimes the battery still drains out very fast for no apparent reason, sometimes it's lasting really long time. For example last night, before I went to bed, battery was down to 50% after a full day of use (not too much, only a bit of email, messaging, weather app plus some random apps). Then in the morning, after not using the phone for around 7 hours, it was a bit warm when I first grabbed the phone, battery down to 8% with "Sleep mode" being the thing which consumed the most energy during the past 18 hours. And you could see the battery curve being relatively stable in the beginning and then during the last few hours, there was a big change and it went down fast. The 8% left were prognosed to last for another 20mins when I checked.

So, unfortunately, I still don't have a solution to these funky behavior...any ideas from anyone? Thanks!

What should i do before to install the rom in TWRP

1) Put the "ROM", the "OpenGapps" package of your interest and the "Extras" file in the SD;
2) If you want a clean installation, make a swipe of Dalvik/ART Cache, System, Data and Cache from TWRP;
3) Then proceed the sequential installation of ROM, OpenGapps and finally the Extras file.

ROM LAOS16: https://github.com/enesuzun2002/lineageos-ota/releases (download file with over 600Mb);
OpenGapps: https://opengapps.org/ (ARM64>9.0>pico or micro);
File Extras: https://download.lineageos.org/extras (you must download "su [arm64]" Version 16.0).

guys, how to fix the battery on lineageOS, not enough even for 4 hours. the screen is off 50% of the time, but still quickly drains the battery. battery wear is 96%. heating up to 60 degrees Celsius, I sit only in the browser on the forums.

guys, how to fix the battery on lineageOS...

Hello derverOR, if you read a few posts back I had given my own solution. I play half an hour/an hour a day, a bit of social etcetera and the charge lasts me a day.

However, you definitely need a bit of cunning during the day. The Galaxy S6 is not actively supported. When there is luck, there is an update every one or two months. You have to succeed with what you have available right now.


Nov 21, 2019
can you quote the post where you explained how to fix the battery?

It's not a real fix but only advices. At first, disable "Double tape to wake" in the display options could help. In addition to increase efficiency I use the Greenify + Donation package app (by Oasis Feng) with administrator permissions (root, the App must be optimally set). Last, in the battery settings I use "Performance Profile: Power Saving". The phone remains fluid even in video games.

    nice to meet you
    I own Galaxy in Japan.
    So, the product code is SM-G925J ZKAKDI.
    Tell me TWRP and lineage ROM for my Galaxy.
    Please take care of me.
    SM-G925 is Galaxy S6 edge, this is not the topic or ROM for it.
    This is TWRP but J model might not support

    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 9 (Pie), 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.

    Custom Features Overview:
    • Hyper - 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)
    • HWC

    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.

    • 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


    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)

    It is a good idea to read here before asking same question

    1- Q: How can i report a bug?
    A: Download Syslog app from Google Play Store and send me all log types and explain the bug clearly please.

    2- Q: I have a tmobile device and can't connect LTE what should i do?
    A: Try this workaround (till i find a real fix for that) by @bohica888: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=81732753&postcount=602
    Hi everyone! I took the liberty of fixing the build errors in the hardware samsung_slsi official repos to be able to build zerofltecan, zerofltexx, zeroltecan, and zeroltexx, with the standard lineage codebase.

    With enusuzun2002's permission, here are my roomservices:


    and my builds:


    Build 0716 for all 4 variants (link in my signature)
    * Partial HWC fix that I had mistakenly overlooked in my previous builds, but I am familiar with these changes because I use them in my S7 builds, from Ivan_Meler's sources. PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT something new! enesuzun2002 had included these changes in his own builds.

    surfaceflinger: check for unreliable retire-fences before invalidating
    [TEMP] graphics: libhwc2on1adapter: fix up layer handles

    Once Ivan_Meler pushes his finalized HWC fix, I will be sure to cherry-pick it into my forks of enesuzun2002's S6 sources.

    * Synced with LineageOS sources.

    You should be able to dirty flash my builds overtop of enesuzun2002's lineage-16.0 builds. However, if in doubt, do a clean flash.

    Q: Why don't you make use of the Lineage OTA Updater in your builds?
    A: Because I upload to Google Drive, it is impossible to use Lineage's OTA updater because the download URL of the build would have to be predicted prior to building and merged into the OTA updater's settings. Because Google Drive only assigns a file ID once a file is finished uploading, it is impossible to predict the file ID ahead of time to insert it into the OTA updater. I use Google Drive because of virtually zero downtime and generally fast download speeds. I have used Android File Host and BasketBuild in the past, as well as Mega, and all these services had let me down at one point or another. Not that Google Drive is perfect, but it has been the most reliable for me. However, for those unfamiliar, the easiest way to be able to download my updated builds straight to your phone is to add your variant's folder from my account to your account as a shared folder.
