Camera

This is amazing!
I have been using different ROMs for a long while (Cyan, Lineage, RR, AOSIP.......), jumping android version as soon as there was a new one, just to prove that this phone still can handle all of it (and that it's basically manufacturers that don't want to update perfectly capable phones).
You were the first to offer Pie to us, and it worked pretty damn well. I have used it since you have published it, and recently I thought I could try this one.
To my surprise, I got a notification about a system update!
I don't think I have ever had an OTA update - this was just an amazing feeling.

I've got a K-30W and everything works lovely.

You are a true magician! Excellent work!

What about your camera? I've got blurry camera, in default camera app and especially when making video call on whatsapp

Hi
Camera works perfectly.

Are you on Wi-Fi when making whatsapp video calls? What's your signal strength? 3G - 4G?

Usually it's all about data speeds - if your speed is low, whatsapp (and skype) will lower the quality of the video, just to have response times better.
In simple terms - you can't push bricks through a garden hose, but the bricks are replaced with pebbles.

I've been shipping stock camera libraries apart from 2 that I had to build again for oreo because of new android libc changes because of which a few atomic symbols went missing, however those changes have nothing to do with the camera quality "The quality is comparable to stock LP S031" and when it comes to video calls its upto the providers and network quality based on which these apps compress the image stream for fluent and seamless video calls if the data speeds are less, then for sure the compression of image stream would be high resulting in blurry stream on video calls and make sure your camera lens are intact, unscratched and original, Try google duo on some high speed network that works well for me, At last all falls upon the application and network quality.

Whatsapp video call too loud

I have a problem with Whatsapp video calls, the volume of the conversation on the earpiece or headset is too loud even on the lowest setting, I have to put the phone away from my ear in order to hear.
This is only on Whatsapp Video Calls. In regular phone calls and Whatsapp voice calls it is normal and I can lower the earpiece volume normally.
Anything I can do to fix this? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling a different version of Whatsapp but it didn't fix the problem.
Any app that can lower the volume even more?
Thank you kindly in advance.

Sorry noob question here. I am new to modifying phones, and I have read some of your posts. I don't seem to fully understand on how to safely implement F2FS on A6000.
May you or someone help me about this? Please do. :( :(

Side note, my sim card can't be detected, and my phone model (Philippines btw) only support ONE sim. Is there something that I should modify before flashing this ROM, or this ROM isn't just compatible with my device?

Kind regards.

no need for F2FS

i don't recommend using F2FS
i tried this rom using both F2FS and EXT4 and i didn't notice any difference in speed
F2FS is not stable as EXT4
watch this video of a comparison between F2FS and EXT4 on an (LG device ) and you will understand what i mean

I just installed this ROM, boots great and everything seems to be fine. Any idea why the device doesn't recognise that a SIM card is in place?


EDIT: I re-installed the ROM, with gapps nano and everything works wonders now

    Didn't work for me, the volume still low and cracking so bad :(
    But sometimes the sound came back normally just a few seconds, then it's back again. It came so randomly
    Maybe caused by hardware problem?

    Storage space Automatically decreasing

    Ive Installed this ROM on my LenA6K plus and it went fine . but when i started using it the internal storage get filled up so fast without any good reason (the 5 - 10 GB space is occupied within one or two hours) and it shows Internal storage Full ) bytes left . and when i restart the phone i get all these space back.

    in the settings it shows the space is occupied by android System Files

    now after using for a while i got only 2 or 3 GB left so it gets filled up so frequently and i have to restart it again and again in minutes for using it
    please help me out

      Frequently asked questions.

      Q : I get error 255/7 while flashing from recovery
      A : Flash using correct TWRP.

      Q : How do i flash rom?
      A : No rocket science Just wipe /system /cache /dalvik's cache & internal storage from twrp, Then simply flash the rom package and reboot.

      Q : Can I dirty flash the next build?
      A : If you are upgrading from previous builds of this rom to the current builds then O'course you can dirty flash by just flashing the new rom package , gapps package and wiping both the cache partition however i advice you to refrain from doing dirty flash. Follow the instructions if posted after a build drop and flash the package accordingly if instructions explicitly mention about clean flashing.

      Q : Where do i get compatible gapps/ I can't signIn into google play?
      A : Get your Gapps from OpenGapps.org, only use Pico or nano! If you want my support.

      A : No it is not. Some testers have had success with Magisk though.

      Q : Can I flash ABC mod? Does the ROM support it?

      Time for update.
      • August kernel & Android Security Bulletin Patches merged
      • Past kernel changes & optimizations of last 2 month
      • Completely Shifted to arm optimized routines
      • Update android math libraries from freebsd OSS
      • Fixed Dalvik's value not being applied sometimes.
      • Initial sepolicies

      Note:- Dirty Flash from previous lineage build is fine but after boot give device time to settle down, might take 2-3 cycles for phone, Clean flash is recommended if you are migrating from other rom that includes wiping even the internal storage.

      If you are on the last stable build you should be getting ota for the current build and you can update directly from there.

      Download:- lineage-16.0-20190808-UNOFFICIAL-a6000.zip

      Time for update(More perf bump!!! Enjoy!)

      Read the changelog:- here!

      Downloads?
      Method 1:-
      -> People on the previous build should be getting a OTA notification or can manually check for update via the updater app and can update from there.

      Method 2:
      Those who want to update manually can download the build from my basketbuild folder (Linked in the first post of this thread) flash it from recovery and reboot.

      Clean flash?
      If you are upgrading from previous build to the current build then there is no need of doing clean flash, Just simply flash the new package and reboot. If you are coming from some other rom you have to do a clean flash that includes wiping your internal storage else your bug reports would be ignored.
