How to fix GPS? I will be must come back to miui
i did clean flash and problem still exist
On miui gps works good
As already mentioned I never had issues with GPS, thus I have no experience how to fix it. I would try flashing the latest fw and then a clean install of the rom. But starting again from a working MIUI (which will also provide you with an updated firmware) might be a good choice.

Is the scrolling on web browsers really laggy for anyone else? On Chrome, Brave and Samsung Internet, with different webviews, it's really choppy.

The past 2 updates haven't been installing for me, download update via OTA > install > restart... and update still isn't applied

Any help?

Hi everybody.
Faced a problem when using vpn (l2tp ipsec psk). The connection is established, but there is no Internet access.
If private dns is registered, then a message appears that there is no access to private dns.
Gapps, magisk and the quicksilver kernel are installed.
The same connection worked on miui.
Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem?

Are there users lineage-18.1-20220704-nightly-ginkgo-signed?

Please confirm the problem.

The camera in horizontal orientation in sunlight of the subject very much lowers the brightness of the screen, and you have to photograph almost blindly. Screen auto-brightness is off.

When you return to vertical orientation, the screen brightness returns to normal.

In electric illumination of the subject with an incandescent lamp, I do not observe this problem.

Есть ли пользователи lineage-18.1-20220704-nightly-ginkgo-signed?

Пожалуйста, подтвердите проблему.

Камера в горизонтальной ориентации при солнечном свете объекта очень сильно понижает яркость экрана, и фотографировать приходится практически вслепую. Автоматическая яркость экрана выключена.

При возврате к вертикальной ориентации яркость экрана возвращается к норме.

При электрическом освещении предмета лампой накаливания я не наблюдаю эту проблему.
Я не подтверждаю

Question to the developers: The brightness of the screen depends on the protective film glued to the lenses? Automatic brightness is turned off.

Let me remind you that the defense mode of the USB does not affect access to the phone memory from the computer

Can we expect version 19.1 or will our phone stay on version 18.1?

I tested unofficial version 19.1 in the past, but this version got a bug and I changed it to 18.1 and I'm really happy with this version (with other roms, for example android auto maybe more things didn't work, but with Lineage 18.1 everything works fine).
The new version brings some new stuff so I'm just wondering if anyone is working on it or not?

Thank you for your hard work.

    Are you using it with Gapps or Magisk with banking apps?
    If yes, is everything working?
    Poland, stock LOS, Gapps mini (IIRC) and one banking app, Poland. No GPS problems. I used to have problems with VoIP apps (no sound) but it seems to be fixed now.
    This is a file to bypass safetynet without Magisk.
    Are you using Magisk then?
    No I don't use magisk. Maybe it's just that my banking app doesn't care.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    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. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. 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 out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

    What's not working :
    • You tell me
    Instructions :
    • Download the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Format data (if it is first time installation)
    • Flash the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot
    Downloads :
    Reporting Bugs
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.
