Well I installed this and it works perfectly. It's absolutely the best Android 11 ROM for the S7. Everything is working face unlock I didn't think we would ever have face unlock. Thank you to the developer. I use the open gapps beta because it sets it exactly like android 11 is supposed to be. You get the select option and screenshot at the bottom of the screen. Great feature for tracking numbers.

hello, first time I try this ROM, and I have found it excellent, in customization, battery, performance in both pubg and cod, and what has surprised me the most is the official maintenance. I hope this project has a long way to go, for me to provide the statistical data.

This ROM is great and super stable. Only 3 things so far I have to complain about.

1. There does not seem to be an option to change the Short press action for any of the on-screen navigation bar buttons.
2. Seems like aptX HD is not working, but aptX does.
3. Edge lightning won't work for me (could be because I have the normal S7 ?)

Anyway I am looking forward to the next update
Thanks for the ROM and keeping the device alive

Wow that's weird I didn't see you responded I just happened to click on the page and see the comment. There are other gapps packages but if you want the select text feature the test130 packages from open gapps is the only one. They all work fine I don't have a problem with them sometimes the select feature still doesn't work on the latest version of the rom.

You accidentally sent the wrong link (arm instead of arm64) also there are newer version of the test gapps , I recommend the nano version from the link below.

Yes I thought this was crdroid rom for Shamu nexus 6 I didn't look. I would have given you the right link. To be honest though I still use the 130 test arm64 package on the s7 to. It doesn't have the select text feature on the new package and the old package works perfectly I use micro so I have microphone on the apps pico doesn't.

Thanks, but I'm having various bugs on my exynos G930F and it's getting annoying.
1- The wifi is disconnected, I have to turn wifi off and on to reconnect.
2- The camera sometimes does not work.
3- When I want to send audio from WhatsApp I get the error: "Can't set up the recorder now, please try again later."
4- The battery is consumed too fast.

I want to clarify that before flashing this rom I flashed the firmware G930FXXU8ETI2 from Germany.

The rom is excellent! super customizable, I love it! Too bad I'm having these bugs, I'll try to flash it again and use gapps nano, if I still have the same bugs I'll have to switch to another one, thank you very much.

All of those you listed are problems with every single custom ROM for the S7 and Edge along with a lot of other devices. The wifi stops working is extremely common and you just have to shut it off and on again the camera stopping means it needs rebooting. I'm surprised you haven't had this happen before. The camera one sucks because if forget to reboot my phone and I need to take a picture it seems like it does everytime I actually need the camera lol.

I forgot the battery life is awful period. I would estimate that 4 to 5 hours is all you could get at best with actually screen on use but on Floyd rom I would say you probably wouldn't get even 3 hours. That rom would eat 30 percent or more in an hour. Phones have finally gotten good now. With the snapdragon 855 and new you get performance and good battery life. My s10 lite goes for at least 8 to 10 hours of on screen time. But than it's 45 watt charging it'll be less than an hour to full again. 3nm CPUs should be out in 3 years or so and that will be another huge boost in performance and battery. Even more impressive is Intel has plans to release 1.4nm chips in 2029 that's insane they already know 10 years ahead. If we had those and graphene batteries in are phones we could go all day and do a full charge in 5 minutes

    Hello,
    I've got the same problem on this device on any custom rom (samsung original rom doesn't have this effect).
    The caller hears the echo...
    I've lowered the volume of my speaker, and that seems to solve the problem. This is obviously not an solution, just workaround.
    BUT... it makes me think that this have something to do with the microphone usage. In fact this device has two microphones, to record the stereo sound in movies. But what if during the call, device uses both microphones as well ?
    Logically, the second microphone is near next to speaker, so when volume is up, the microphone can "catch" the sound from it, and this makes the echo.

    Is there any solution to override this ? to force to use only one microphone on the bottom of the device?

    I think so too, top mic in stock rom is used to analyzes and cut off background noise, but in custom rom both mics are used to voice call. noise reduction app is not open samsung software, probably that's why the developer has a problem with it and do not know how to turn off second mic.
    I already sell my S7, bought google pixel and flash lineageos, now everything work fine.

    Seems you are right about secondary mic and echo. There is new build of LOS and this is in changelog:
    06.21.2021

    - Audio: Reworked incall audio handling in mixer paths to disable 2nd mic that was picking up noise


    So i hope for new crDroid build soon ;-)
