I do this in my free time so bear that in mind when you notice I didn't fix known bug in next available build, Currently i work on this alone and i am not one of those kangers that just copy source and claim it as their own work,
if you want to support the project feel free to buy me some coffee paypal.me/ivanmeler




Feel free to join telegram group with early builds progress updates and some off topic stuff Join

Due to requests from some users I added signature spoofing support to the rom which allows usage of MicroG
you can simply install MinMicroG and grant it needed permissions for signature spoofing to make it work as intended

Keep in mind this is early build and many los features are not merged yet do not report those as bugs as they are not device specific and will be resolved
Also here are some screenshots

Also big thanks to everyone who supported this and other projects since lineageos 15.1 since i do this in my free time and donations help offset server cost and get me coffee

Well it works pretty good no reboots that I had happen. I was able to root it with magisk v21 manager v8. All the modules I use worked and to my shock edxposed Android R 5.06 Yafha worked perfectly. We have never had xposed work when android updates to the latest that is mind blowing. However you know I got 1 complaint. SDcard would not read I wasnt about to reformat a 400gb sdcard with everything on it for a rom I wasnt going to stay on. All in all excellent I had to flash rom, than flash gapps and reboot than flash maigsk v21 after opening up developer options other wise if you just line 1,2,3 zips up it wont work. I want to say I used niks gapps but I downloaded both bit and niks and cant remember.

Thanks for the ROM so early. I don't know if what I'm about to mention is a bug or just an error for me, but has anyone else had an issue with the brightness slider? That's my only problem so far :c

KeepassDX biometric issue still exists (issue present in 17.1 as well). In 18, the issue is worse: when I go to enable biometric, a pop-up appears stating "Could not start this feature".

Hoping you can update the security patch and vendor patch to LOS16 version, as that was last version that had no issues

The other guy is right you flash rom, flash gapps , and finally flash v21. I use SHRPS recovery 2.3.2 ltehero 2 and hero 1 actaully I have both phones. Maybe thats different. It wont work if you hit plus zip , plus zip , plus zip. You have to do 1 flash let it finish than flash the other I dont know why. For the first release Its super impressive just the sdcard thing otherwise it would be a daily driver except I didnt check sim card.

ROM wants to format mSD card, even tho the same mSD card works fine in 16 and 17.1

that normal?

edit: even after formatting, 18 won't recognise the mSD card - instead, a notification shows, saying there is a error with mSD card and to fix it, it needs to format... which I did.... and then it showed the error again, saying it needs to format again..... so a useless cycle :(

    New builds are up, Here is a brief changelog

    - Merged September 2021. Security Update
    - Merged September 2021. Security update to kernel
    - Fixed WiFi Display (Screen mirroring)
    - Resolved few sepolicy issues
    - Synced with LOS source

    Builds were delied a bit this month due to google pushing source and security update itself later than usual but there are a few extra fixes that apply to s7 that are also included like working Wireless display
    Updated builds of 17.1 will be posted in a few days too

    Also Android 12 is around the corner and once source for that is out I will start working on getting it up and running on s7 thats at this point over a 5 years old device but still can handle new android releases perfectly

    Big thanks to everyone who supported this project in past as their donations help cover the build server cost and get me a coffee (I do this on a hobby in my free time)
    Because of those people this project and device is still alive
    Enjoy new build and stay safe

    Gcam For LOS 18.1

    Thank you Ivan, it is your work that keeps me from buying new phone and in doing so save me money, also keeps my love for this phone.

    Can I donate a gift via paypal to you?
    sure thing, im glad to keep this phone alive as it really still is powerful enough (i just wish it had a bit more ram) but other than that its still perfectly capable daily haha

    Exciting ROM! Works quite well with great battery life!

    Only problem that annoys me is that the camera does not work great. It's behaving rather sluggish and buggy.

    Also, I can not find a Gcam that would work. I've tried a few newer and older builds, but all of them crash right after opening. Does anyone know how to get one to work?

    I have a great one and works very well i will uploaded it

    hi, i´ve a question.
    don´t you delete wipe cache and dalvik before ( updating to the latest rom) flashing the rom?
    hope to hear from you soon . best regards!
    On a new install I wipe everything, plus I format data. As I''m not a great lover of Google I try to configure gapps (opengapps, nikgapps, ...) to install the minimum possible. The only Google app that I consider necessary is Maps.
