I saw that post, but that's not the issue I'm having. I'm not losing pairing, it seems more like a weak signal or connection problem. The lost pairing issue was something I did encounter when I was still on the stock firmware though.
Oh whoops, already posted the required files to the dev. Oh well!

It seems the Bluetooth isn't a high priority to the CPU or something. When you wake the phone from sleep the connection often messes up for a second.

Can this BT problem be a result of changing the BT HAL since last update?

Btw.
Can't enter setup for tracing because app crashes.
Can't set wlan mac to fixed. Every time I get a new one.
Several notifications are in Russian not in English.

Help I got stuck in the setup screen. I got to the Google Assistant setup but the setup does not response to my "OK Google" voice (The void indicator still react when i speak).
If I choose to skip it, it go back to the Fingerprint setup screen.

Hello.
I've been using this ROM for about 5 days now and I've only encountered a few issues, hopefully these are fixable as I really like this ROM and love not dealing with Samsung's bloat and whatever else they shove in people's phones.
Anyway, this is what I've encountered and I'll try to explain it in the best detail I can:

-Unable to record video on Snapchat or Facebook Messenger
When I go to hold down the shutter button or volume button to record, it records for maybe a split second and will either crash or take a still. I've reinstalled the apps and even installed older versions to zero out the possibility of a compatibility issue, but nothing resolved it. I sent a log in the telegram regarding it, but it was likely lost in the chat history. I can get a new log and post it here if necessary.

-Youtube will freeze and crash upon opening a video randomly (uncommon)
As this explains the just of it, here's a more in depth explanation. When I go to watch a video, it will start buffering, but right as it's about to load suggested videos and comments, the app will freeze. But the spinning wheel on the video will keep going. Not sure if the video will ever play because it will force close the app soon after the freeze. I can retrieve a log for this if it happens again, so far I've gone 2 days without it occuring so it may just be an anomaly. Which I can deal with.

-Cast to TV is not working (common, but doesn't need to be fixed)
My phone picks up my Android TV just fine, which does have built in chromecast, but when I go to cast, it's just a black screen. However, audio is going through just fine with minimal delay (better than Samsung's stock firmware). It may be because the resolution doesn't match up but I can't be entirely sure. If there's a way I can get a log for this, please let me know and I'll provide it.

Side note about video recording: video recording in camera apps such as Gcam, Open Camera and the stock camera app work just fine. Only problem is the 4K60 option is missing. I've ran into this before on other lineage ROMs but forgot how to fix it.

Other than these few hiccups, this is an amazing ROM and I'll continue to use it and recommend it to my friends who have an exynos note 9 (which isnt a lot).
Thanks and I hope we can get these hiccups sorted out.

Good Evening,

Thinking of upgrading the wife's S7 Edge to an S9. Will run a custom ROM on it, Likely Lineage with MicroG.

Before I commit to this what is the call quality like. The S7 suffered terribly with caller echo on all Lineage and AOSP builds and WhatsApp video chat had no sound at all.

The camera was buggy and picture quality poor on S7, how does the S9 compare?

TIA,

This ROM hasn't been updated for a year and I don't plan on getting back in to it. Look for Synt4x's LOS18. Call quality is no different to stock.

    What's working:
    • Wi-Fi
    • Bluetooth
    • Mobile Network (Calling, Data, etc.)
    • Audio (Stereo Speakers)
    • Camera
    • Fingerprint Sensor
    • S-Pen Basics
    • Call Recording
    • HWC
    • Signal Indicator
    • GPS
    • HDMI
    • NFC
    • MTP

    What's not working:
    • Iris sensor does not work because AOSP upstream does not support that yet.
    • IMS services (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc). Samsung has their own proprietary implementation. It is not really possible to easily port that to LineageOS.

    Bugs:
    • S-Pen/Mouse will cause small graphical glitches during button animations sometimes.

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

    THE VENDOR.IMG IS PROVIDED AS PART OF THE ROM. FLASHING ANOTHER VENDOR WILL CAUSE A BOOTLOOP.

    How to update builds?
    • Do not wipe anything unless stated in the changelog
    • Flash only the rom.zip and it will automatically reinstall your gapps, magisk, vendor etc
    • use /system/addon.d if you would like to keep system mods after an update
