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.

Stupid question: If I'm already running LOS i have to clean install the new firmware and LOS again?
Thanks
No need for a clean install. Just flash the firmware directly before flashing a new LOS version
Sorry, it was a misleading question... I mean now that the new firmware 12.5 is out, is it recommended to flash this firmware? And If so, do I have to clean install then? Thanks
Since 12.5 is the chinese version, I will wait for the global version.
And no, you don't have to clean install. Just flash it in TWRP. But since it is not really important to have the latest fw immediately I normally do that when I update LOS anyway (I always do it manually in TWRP).

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)

which version of TWRP are you using? I'm have been trying all day to install TWRP but the MI-Recovery always persist. Have last global version installed, fresh restore
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot boot recovery.img

All looks well but after that it goes directly to MIUI and the MI-Recovery persist.

Have you unlocked the bootloader?
Following the instructions should work without any problems: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/dipper/install

I'm experiencing problems with push notifications.
When i leave the phone in standby for some time it will stop notifying. When i pick it up again, i'm getting push notifications that are several hours old.

And when not in standby push notifications are inconsistent. Especially for all facebook related apps like whatsapp, messenger and Facebook itself. Maybe Zuckerberg related but my old Android 5 Asus tablet is always reliable receiving the same messages instantly.

    After using it for a few days I noticed GPS is not working at all.

    It works with all other Roms except this one. There are no error messages, just doesnt works.
    This happens due to denial location permission of com.google.android.gms.
    This can be fixed by grant the location permission using adb shell

    Code:
    adb shell pm grant com.google.android.gms android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION
    adb shell pm grant com.google.android.gms android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION

    PS. this sometimes happens on my devices (Tissot, Dipper, Vayu) with LineageOS 18.1 and OpenGapps

    I installed Nano.
    I have tried 2 times already with lineage 18.1, lastest nightly and opengapps nano. Are you in last LOS nightly?

    I'm trying tp figure out what the heck is happening... I can enable Voice Match but It won't just work when I say it...

    I'll try now reflashing LOS and flashing inmediately opengapps without any kind of reboot, so I fresh boot for first time with both packages installed... Hope does the trick...

    EDIT: Never mind, started to work as soon as I opened "Google" app again, there was some kind of permission not given until then. It works now.

    LOS goes as smooth as the phone can go, so I'll stick to LOS from now since Havox/Zeus/ZenxOS is practically abandoned

    Thank you very much buddy

    Which package of opengapps did you installed?

    I thought opengapps was over in Android 11.
    I installed Nano.

    Sorry if offtopic: Can I install OpenGapps over NikGapps? Or do I have to clean install everything?
    These apps are meant to be flashed after a clean install of a rom, as they leave remnants and its easy to have problems.

    Do you happen to have logs for this?

    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.

    Edit: Uploaded the correct build now. Also added in gps fix

    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. :|
