What's working:
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Mobile Network (Calling, Data, etc.)
  • Audio (Stereo Speakers)
  • Camera
  • Fingerprint Sensor
  • S-Pen Basics
  • Call Recording
  • HWC
  • Signal Indicator
  • GPS
  • Sensors
  • HDMI
  • NFC

What's not working:
  • Iris sensor does not work because AOSP upstream does not support that yet.
  • IMS services (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc). Samsung has their own proprietary implementation. It is not really possible to easily port that to LineageOS.

Bugs:
  • S-Pen/Mouse will cause small graphical glitches during button animations sometimes.
  • Signal Indicator

Instructions:
  • Make sure TWRP has been installed and functional
  • Reboot to recovery
  • Wipe data and cache (required if you switch from other ROMs)
  • Flash the latest build (then gapps and magisk if needed)
  • Reboot

THE VENDOR.IMG IS PROVIDED AS PART OF THE ROM. FLASHING ANOTHER VENDOR WILL CAUSE A BOOTLOOP.

How to update builds?
  • Do not wipe anything unless stated in the changelog
  • Flash only the rom.zip and it will automatically reinstall your gapps, magisk, vendor etc
  • use /system/addon.d if you would like to keep system mods after an update

Downloads:

If you get booting and or wifi issues with this new build, I would recommend a completely clean flash. It would appear some things have changed upstream in Lineage & Magisk that are causing issues.

Changelog:

  • Fixed NFC (Requires factory reset if on earlier build)

GPS is reportedly working on S9/+. Do you mind testing and confirming?
Trying it now on my SM-G960F using SatStat. Using LOS17, opengapps beta and Magisk 20.1.
I have no GPS, no compass and none of the sensors (acceleration, proximity, lux etc.) are working.

Chrome crashes all the time, no fingerprint unlock, no smart unlock, ui experience isn't as smooth as it can be, also when you try to change the battery icon in the status bar from portrait to circle or text it doesn't work.

The chrome/netflix/spotify and fingerprint bugs will be fixed today.
The battery icon not changing is a LineageOS problem, they haven't finished porting all of their features.
