Looks good, but is there any other solution which would not require flashing magisk etc? I am fed up with flashing, bootloops, backups... I mean I can do this, but I already lost too much time to make my Dipper work as a daily device. And my banking app works fine now...
Sorry, but I don't know about any other solution, and most of the Camera Apps i tried were generating garbage quality images with my phone.

Flashing Magisk is, in my opinion, worth the effort, not only for making pretty images.

If you do it the "new way" via the Magisk app and USB copy installing magisk should be done in like 5 minutes, as you don't even need TWRP or something.

If you are in a bootloop (which should not happen), you could just flash the original boot.img from the Lineage.zip and fall back to your current installation without reseting the whole phone.

No, there's no other solution. That's the reason (and the not so nice dev team) why I never used ANX. And like infrag stated before - the right GCam Mod will anyway do better for you. And you'll have just to sideload it. I can recommend you Pixelcam Dise or X from https://pixelcambrasil.com.br/.

Which file you flashed with the magisk app v23?

Hi,
Just installed 18.1 and GPS does not work. A-GPS works, but zero satellites in view.
Lot of gps related messages in log, but nothing particular:

Xiaomi Mi 8
consistent 7 hours screen mixed use and where i live 4g signal is quite poor, but my battery is pretty new.
It can manage almost 4 hours of genshin impact but the phone gets quite hot

Pretty good for me, with calls/browsing/youtube/gaming (hero hunters mostly, full 3d but not genshin impact heavy) at the end of the day i usually have 40-50% left

I need help. How do you install an update? At LOS17 I was able to download and install it. That no longer works. I have now made everything new. Wipe System and Data. Then LOS18 from 3.6 and Mindgapps installed. Then restored all of my apps. Now I wanted to install today's update. Neither OTA update works nor the installation in recovery. Boot loop. What's wrong with that? Why is it? I've been flashing different systems for years, but there are only problems with LOS18. How do you install an update?

    Is there a reason why we didn't see an update after lineage-18.1-20210624?
    Yes:

    But they are running again:

    Maybe you can see the issue with last 18.1 from 24.6.

    Thanks for update. Battery life looks very good... :)

    I see difference in color richness between LOS 17 and LOS 18. On LOS 17 colors was vivid but on 18.1 are like washed despite I set colors to 'Boosted" in Screen settings. It's only me? :oops:
    I can actually reproduce this, contrarily to others who stated it was not a ROM-related issue, but some steps are needed to trigger it (and probably it is not HDR-related)

    It's certain apps that, when viewing media content (even non-HDR content), cause the display color profile to get messed up. You can reproduce this by viewing any image on Slide for Reddit (open source Reddit client).

    It is also a problem which affected LineageOS some years ago, and now it's back. It did not affect LOS17.1.

    In the attached screenshot there are the only log lines seemingly related to this issue, which get written as soon as the app displays an image (and cause the color profile to get immediately messed up)

    With the latest build i have massive camera problems. With BSG GCam Mod i can make a piture but HDR never completes. After a while the camera app doesnt open anymore. Also the Build in camera app says "Can't connect to camera" and also the flashlight is not working. I found an older thread that describes the Problem: https://gitlab.com/LineageOS/issues/android/-/issues/1769

    I switched back to 2021-06-17 Build an now the Camera is working fine.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, 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. 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.

    Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    so the newest build 04/11/2019 uses Xiaomi Q blobs.
    Therefore it has some bugs:
    I havent got bluetooth audio working yet. Bluetooth calls seem to work fine though.
    Sound: Speaker works if you make a phone call first and switch to speaker during the call. After that everything else starts working.
    Edit: fixed. - GPS all satellites should show up now.
    Android Auto fixes probably havent been added yet to lineage but when anything shows up I'll add it.

    The reason this build took so long to be released is that Q radio blobs kept causing a reboot when data was used and switched to low power mode. I believe I have fixed this.


    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bhurP2zIyZf93jJzSN1IBbiMBhmbSd_h

    Edit: Uploaded the correct build now. Also added in gps fix
    17
    Also fyi I'd hoped to have anther build up by now but since lineage has changed to 17.1 branches instead of 17.0 my build system is a bit of a mess. Waiting for all the repos to be updated to 17.1 before releasing anything. Hopefully it wont be too long...
    15
    18/12/2019 finally a working q build with q blobs and working audio.
    havent tested it a lot so any bugs let me know. There will be a v2 of the audio fix/change. This fix was just to make it work. :)

    new build in OP.
    For android auto users unless I say otherwise I have not fixed your problem yet. :|
