I can confirm u guys that ril is fully functional with calls audio SMS and LTE. Also incall audio is working unlike last build.

That's fantastic progress, great to hear!
Is camera something that will realistically be fixed? And who should I donate to to support the development? Would love to just show some appreciacion for picking this up again :)

I agree that asking for ETA should be banned cause is not polite. I disagree that developers are going to delay the development because some misfits don't follow rules. On the other hand, faith belong to religion. Thousands of users follow developers cause we trust them; they know thing we don't. besides, we want a new look and better performance of our phones, So we should donate more often to encourage developers. For god sake, I open this thread twice a day, I cross my fingers. To be able to follow any progress should be in the same book of politeness.

I'd like to donate to whoever is working on this and making progress, but since there are four people working on this, and not all working on the same thing, it's hard for me to judge who to donate to. More transparency on the side of the developers (repos, what's being worked on, perhaps even test builds though I understand it might bring spam/hassle) would help me and others who want to support in seeing who is actively engaged in this and would give us an opportunity of knowing who and what we are supporting.

I do not mean this as dev bashing because I am genuinely thankful that this has been picked up by people again; rather see it as a suggestion for better engagement :)

At the moment neither Stricted or I accept donations, we will post something quite soon for s8,s8+ and Note8 another thing is that neither of us has the device so testing is quite a bit cumbersome so Thargorsson and Vaughnn are helping out there which while not perfect due to not having device to ttest with somewaht works for now and they also help out with things along the way, Source (Kernel source which is under gpl) will be posted upon rom release

Let's keep the comments related to the development of this Rom.

Not arguing, insulting others, asking for ETAs, or anything else that doesn't help develop this Rom.

1,000 users can say "I'm excited for this Rom, where can I download it" and all you have is a development thread filled with useless banter, none of which assists in development.

Please, take the off-topic discussion to the GENERAL/DISCUSSION section and leave the development thread less cluttered for development.

This will be the only courtesy warning given. Please re-read Forum Rules if you need a refresher on what is acceptable when posting in Xda.

Thanks for your cooperation.

is this rom compilable? if so how can i compile it, in the safest way possible, if possible, could you post the exact compilation environment used to compile the stable working

example:
OS version
toolchain and toolchain version used
any applications or programs used to compile or aid in the development of the ROM, and their versions, if specific versions are required

I already know about that one, and I already asked there but they said no or something, I can't remember

I'm hoping the devs of this ROM would let me because this ROM is older and has less working features, making 15.1 desirable as more stuff work on it, not that I'm saying no one cares about this ROM, I just want a ROM that can be compiled with minimal risk of hard bricking if compiled correctly

Don't quote OP.
Just follow the lineageos wiki and replace the device specific repos with the op ones. If you don't know how to do this google.

are you just assuming this will work or have you actually successfully built a working image for the S8 using the method you just mentioned

as i have no idea what the devs needed to do in order to make this ROM compile as it is UNOFFICIAL and thus UNSTABLE

for all i know it could immediately hard brick the device unless modifications are made that are not mentioned in the LOS wiki nor device specific repos

I build images for the S5 from haggertk in the past but not for the S8. I don't have time or motivation to walk you trough it.

so your just assuming it will work, like i said, for all i know it could immediately hard brick the device unless modifications are made that are not mentioned in the LOS wiki nor device specific repos

    IThis ends now. If people are not happy with this rom. Either make your own or find another one.
    As such this thread is closed to clean up everyones negative comments......

    Now that the thread is cleaned... To every one who thinks its ok...
    It is rude to ask for ETAs,deal with it.... It is rude to say Oh this dont work fix it, Post some logs and maybe work with the devs to fix it, Every expierenced modder knows there are bugs, Knows there are bugs in lineage,If you dont like it find another rom As such No more of this behavior will be tollerated!!!!!
