    do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM

    Yeah I am totally aware of the Exynos nightmare, I was just wondering how they dealt with previous CM versions. Were there an official support for CM13,14,... for S6 and S7 (both missing from lineage offficial) or was it always based on unofficial built?
    Official builds will come the next week ;)
    Weekly builds have been re-enabled and I have joined official herolte/hero2lte LineageOS maintainers.

    The following device-specific things are fixed in today's build:
    • BUGBASH-1270 OTA updater (thanks @fabwu for doing most of the work). Ota updates will start to work AFTER manually installing this build and TWRP version 3.2.1-1 (or newer). CC: @Blato @pluto123 @gnarf49
    • BUGBASH-840 Low microfone recording volume
    • BUGBASH-1169 Inability to play videos and phone overheating + draining battery, after playing some/many videos (this is fixed by workaround, proper fix will be included in one of further builds)
    Samsung releases kernel source with almost all major update, so we have sources, and (on Google git) it's available the exynos5 userspace source (deprecated, but modified to work with new devices by cm staff)

    So, it's true, we doesn't have "proper and specific" source for every device like qcom has, but we have a great group of people working every day to make this happen, backtracing, decompiling apps and lib, researching how the weird Sammy works...
