Strange problem is found in latest build. The phone is hanged in runtime just like windows 10 ram crash. It is fixed through force rebooting using power+volume_down

Hi all,
I'm on Lineage 17.1 with a good experience and amazing battery life.
Is 18.1 working as stable as 17.1?
Is it worth the upgrade?
A big thank to the developer for expanding the life of my S7 edge!

Hola a todos, actualmente estoy usando FloydRom Q que va muy bien, pero me gustaría probar esta rom. Pero estoy leyendo que a algunos de vosotros le va muy bien, y a otros regular o mal. Sí ya sabemos que cada teléfono es un mundo ..... Que si el sonido es bajo, la cámara se congela y no graba en modo vídeo 4K, las llamadas tienen eco o se congelan, etc., etc. Lo único que es bueno es la batería que es excelente.
No sé que hacer .......
Saludos

Translation:
Hi everyone, I am currently using FloydRom Q which is going great, but I would like to test this rom. But I'm reading that some of you are doing very well, and others fair or poor. Yes, we already know that each phone is a world ..... If the sound is low, the camera freezes and does not record in 4K video mode, calls echo or freeze, etc., etc. The only thing that is good is the battery which is excellent.
I do not know what to do .......
Greetings

Hey Guys,

I recently clean installed LOS 18.1 on my HEROLTE after full wipe via latest TWRP:

1. lineage-18.1-20210304-UNOFFICIAL-hero2lte.zip
2. NIKGapps-core-arm64-11-20210130-signed.zip
3. Magisk-v22.zip

Everythink worked fine, but I cannot install BUSYBOX,
I tried via PlayStore or direct installation of BusyBox-1.32.0-Stericson.zip via TWRP, it always fails.
In Magiskv22 I cannot find any modules available for downloading so I cannot try this option.

Any Idea? Thank you for your suggestions

Thanks for this great opportunity to have Android 11 on my pretty old hero2lte *thumbsup*

The only thing so far i had issues with is the wifi. I couldn´t connect to my router´s wifi or even guest wifi (on same router). It´s a AVM "Fritz!Box 7590". A very popular Router over here in Germany.

After some research on the net I found the reason (maybe helpful if somebody comes across the same issue):
Wifi was set to support WPA3 which auto-enables the "PFM" feature and greyes out the checkbox, so that it´s not deselectable.
The "PMF" is called 802.11w (protected management frames) - a security feature.

On original Samsung ROM it worked with no issue, but on LOS 18.1 I had to switch back to WPA2 only and disable PMF. Then I could connect to wifi again with no issue. When switching back to WPA3/PMF, the hero2lte immediately loses wifi connection.

Maybe it will be integrated in a later stage. I guess it´s not hardware related as it worked before.

Same problem with making photos with flash (same on Crdroid. 7.2)

phone hangs or crash and goes pulpit when we try to use camera flash to photo

when using flash led with making video all is ok - only problem with photos
 

Ivan_Meler

Recognized Developer
New builds are up and as per requests of some people Signature spoofing support is added (In a way that doesnt make it a security threat as app has to be flashed to system,have proper priv-app xml permissions and user has to explictly grant permission for the given app) you can sue it with MinMicroG

Other than that there are just some performane and satbility improvements, here is a brief changelog
- Added signature spoofing support for MicroG
- Cleaned up codebase
- Misc performance and satbility improvements
- Synced with LOSsource

Big thanks to everyone who donated as their donations help cover the build server cost and keep the device alive more than 5 years after release with up to date OS and security patches

Hi guys,
Any idea if the echo issue has been solved in this version?
Nope, the issue is still there. I'm not sure if it is even possible to fix it, I've read once that the echo cancellation feature is a Samsung's proprietary, thus it could be impossible to implement such a thing in the first place. Who knows, hopefully someone comes out with a fix.

    - Fixed edge case where fast charging switch would be ignored because its chwoned too late
    - Compiled NFC hal from source (Google released samsung nfc source
    (https://android.googlesource.com/platform/hardware/samsung/nfc/), (Should improve stability)

    Want to build rom yourself? here is local manifest with up to date repos.

    this build had quite a lot of improvements that took quite a bit of time to fully test and implement and hopefully should be near perfect now.

    Big thanks to everyone who helped this project with donations as they help keep this project alive together with s7 5 years after its release on latest android version
    , Donations help cover build server cost and coffee for free time spent on project itself, Enjoy new build and stay safe

    could someone please clarify or correct latest rom update instructions?

    1.set up a downloading mode on your s7 edge
    2.open odin and connect the phone with computer
    3.upload twrp to odin and flash the phone.
    4.restart, open twrp on the phone and open advance wipe
    5.mark Dalvik / ART Catche and wipe.
    6.open install in twrp and choose new version of rom file and install.

    7.should i install also nikgapps and magisk if i already had installed them before update?
    if yes, should i install rom first, then nikgapps and finally magisk separately or all together at once?

    thanks and best of luck with your s7 edge !
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    reply from ivan_meler

    for updating the rom magisk should auto reflash after rom update so no need to manually flash it but nikgapps had broken update survival script so you will likely have to reflash them after flashing the rom itself

    another question to s7 edge lineageOS 18.1 users.

    has anyone tried to connect this phone to a car? any tips? thanks and best of luck!
    In my car it works, the only problem: *OK Google" doesn't work. I have to use the microfone button of AndroidAuto instead.
    There are two possibilitirs to run AA:
    First one:
    Use Nickgapps Full, AA is included but also all Google apps
    Second one:
    Use Nickgapps Basic plus the Addon AndroidAuto.
    Good luck trying it!

    Take a note that a lot of LineageOS features have not been completed yet this is not a device bug and please do not report those
    in this rom thread as you will be reported to moderator also do not post bug reports for known issues or bug reports without proper
    a) Logcat
    b) proc/last_kmsg (or proc/kmsg)
    c) data/tombstones
    d) dmesg

    Also do not under any circumstances post bug reports if you are using substratum themes or unsupported magisk modules or you have performed any system modifications



    Install gapps right after installing the rom itself dont try to boot to system before that if you want to use gapps
    NikGapps and BiTgapps were both tested and working

    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
