So... I'll try here then. Does anyone know how to get WiFi calling on on the TMo klte variant? When I search it in the options panel it comes up but stuff is greyed out. Should be baked in and it appears to be but can't enable it for some reason. If I look for it via normal methods in the options it can't be found. Only by searching.


Anyone on TMo get it working?

Thanks haggertk

I'm unable to make vpn (in my case TOR) work with 15.1 - for me this is a major show stopper and I stuck on 14.1 (G900W8).
Has anyone managed to get vpn to work, tor or otherwise?

WiFi calling
I don't think you are going to get much joy with WiFi calling, many have tried and failed. I think it's quite specific to the carrier.

I have tried and failed to get Netguard to work on the unofficial build which is also a VPN solution. I couldn't log a Jira against the unofficial build. Just haven't got around to doing so now it's official. It's odd because it worked on vanilla Oreo on my old Nexus.

I just tested

Connect to tor with vpn via tor app - connected but couldn't load web page (only did very quick test)
Connect to tor without vpn using tor app - works
Using a 3rd party vpn app (turbo vpn) - works

I tested NetGuard from playstore
I found it blocked all traffic regardless of the rules that were set

I don't know if it's an app issue or rom issue

Thanks @haggertk for this good work. I flashed on my wife's S5-DUOS.
Only 2 issues:
- Battery life is poor compared with LOS14.1 => I think is normal at this moment.
- I need to switch off WiFi before to start or restart the phone, if not, SIM isn't be recognized or don't connect to network.

For the rest, it works really well.

For people having issues with mic gain, the problem came from anti-dust / water protection. 3 years ago I suffered it and the solution was to make a hole trough the protection (of course you will loose the protection but at least the other person can hear you :) ).

Hi everybody,

I just wanted to say here that thanks to DanteGGs post in the lineageos 14.1 thread I upgraded my encrypted klte from LOS 14 -> 15.1

1) Manually download the 23072018 nightly, Oreo Gapps, and SUaddon.
2) Upgrade TWRP to latest (3.2.2-0), boot to recovery
3) Backup in TWRP
4) Wipe - Advanced Wipe - System (leave Data untouched)
5) Flash LOS, Gapps, SUaddon wipe Cache&Dalvik, reboot to system

That's it, this way I got to keep all the apps and settings and haven't experienced any strange behavior, errors, or reboots.

So the whole process also works if the phone is encrypted.


Yesterday i uninstalled suaddon and installed Magisk instead -- works as well together with titanium backup. ( I tried to hide su to enable some apps )
