127.0.0.1
I tried all of them (that let me install, most of them are +7.0 required)
Last official google cam for 6.0.1,
And the snapdragon one (attached on the aoscp #2 post of the thread)
Open camera and the WhatsApp camera
Need more logcats? Using the experimental build since then and it's smoother and a lot better. Just missing my camera.
Have a nice day steadfasterX!

well yea without camera this phone makes not much sense for many ;)
hm I will look into the kernel code and maybe try to remove the shim or something.. it must be related.
yes pls make a new logcat after using the google cam and the snapdragon cam would be nice.

Cheers

tl;dr Too Long; Didn't read
Talking about; how to getting secret codes exported to our modified phones. Speculating with OP.

LGs camera use laser-light for measuring distance for the camera, it's helpful when auto-focus-snapping spiders and insects, like worms in the nature; Just so you could log out sometimes and take lit pictures on how metal nature is! Fantastic!


:cowboy: Sir steadfasterX !

-Is the blobs- advantage to get the full camera functionality? And could you describe the method how you will extract it? Also, are the blobs are device specific? (Yes, of-course, :cyclops: after some rereading

-Is it possible to use special home-made xposed- or magisk-module to extract BLOBS? Or is it in a too high level of java? Or does it need a special lg G4 motherboard-debugging-SoC? or Jtag? Or do you completely reverse the official-camera-app?

-Will it be hard-coded? or Pointing the symbols? Or breaking the official-HAL ? Hex-editing binaries?
Also, by comparing official MM camera-HAL with Nougat-HAL, what solid structure will it give


... And the result is a fully working camera with LOS13?

-Do you/ should you, use social-networking with LG-team to help you a bit and accelerate? Could someone i Taiwan help you somehow, giving you the HAL or Binary Large OBject? Is it possible for official LG-team to provide their own SHIM to us? hehe

-This link is explaining about "shim"-method, for beginners. https://www.xda-developers.com/came...opers-make-hardware-work-without-source-code/

"-I admire you, whether you'll succeed or trying! /Datorprofessor"

:eek: Happy Christmas!

Hi @steaderfasterX!

What are the status/quality of those builds at http://droid.binbash.it:8008/lineage/nougat/experimental/. ?

I'm running one build that is getting old. It is an unofficial lineage build from tuti_something for nougat modem based on Korean model. I would like to stay updated on google security patches.

Are they safe? Couldn't find any info on them, are they automated?

I'm one of your usu customers ? on a h815 refurbished phone.


I did a small contribution to you after unlocking my H815. BTW, do you know that there is a unlock bounty for LG G4 Models? You deserve that prize, hope that you already get it.

Regards, and thanks for all your wonderful work.

No bounty I think that's too long ago.
and thx for your donation! Highly appreciated.

Never ever use experimental builds.

EXOPLAYER codec avs

Sir steadfasterX!

I have issue when "redditing" videos and even youtube app.(Sound comes out but No picture) (Funny, when I restart my phone it works,

The issue is that it can not render videos with Qualcomm codecs, and it seems to be lineageOS related. I get taos-message and logcats says

OMX.qcom.video.decoder.avc


I am using your very earlier built 13.0-20170813 unofficial stable one
Your late version, I think it did work with.


Maybe my issue is NOT you causing it, and it could be other mods. But I tried to both inactivate xposed and magisk and still the issue occur.

Hope you could give some advice¨
Thanks!


Edit: Never mind. I found my problem. It was third part app causing when flashed something in recovery.

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

    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
     *
     */

    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.
    You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps).
    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 our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

    It's my daily driver, phone doesn't get hot, really stable, latest security patches from lineageos tree (Is this right?)
    Everything but no GPS, but if you want GPS you can stay on 0813 build.
    Thanks again steadfasterX for building this!!!!

    :)

    yes as long as LineageOS members are supporting 13.0 I will build for it
    ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LineageOS#Version_history )

    When you see the security patch level changing then its true ;) ... for the ROM. The only thing is that this does not reflect the kernel as that one is completely outdated.

    I currently trying to fix that plus the GPS thing in a next experimental build (will be shared here when ready).

    Cheers


    EDIT:
    So if someone wants to try (I can not atm) download and flash this - BUT BEWARE - it may not even boot.. :eek:
    http://droid.binbash.it:8008/lineag...tal_lineage-13.0-20171208-UNOFFICIAL-h815.zip

    Lemme know how it goes :)

    After flashing several successive versions of that ROM, I discovered that version lineage-13.0-20170813-UNOFFICIAL-h815.zip seems to be the last one with satellite location working fine.

    Starting from lineage-13.0-20170814-UNOFFICIAL-h815.zip, satellite location stops working. I guess something is broken in that build.

    @steadfasterX :
    Can you look and see what's happened with 20170814 ? Thanks ! :)

    @Netsab :
    You can safely upgrade to 20170813.

    thanks for your report. btw a dmesg is very helpful in these cases but the above should be fixed on next build.
    next build will also have all proprietary stuff upgraded to v20p.

    EDIT
    new build is up

    Weekly nightlies will be build again.

    Unfortunalely I hadn't the time yet to test the new blobs (updated to 20p) so use the nightlies still with care! It may bootloop or have other issues.
