    @Ivan_Meler
    After installing lineage-18.1-20210505 only the loading screen appears and after 2-3 minutes the phone starts up in TWRP mode.
    Currently I have installed:
    lineage-18.1-20210407
    Nikgapps-omni-20210124
    Magisk 22.1
    What could be wrong?

    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

    I have been trying this rom for quite some time now, and all of the things I thought was bugs perhaps are just something that Android 11 do, except for one thing. NFC seems pretty bugged. I tested the stock Touchwiz Android 8.1 rom and it works fine, yet now with this rom, NFC seems to be in a somewhat unfunctioning state. Has anyone else had this issue with the newest May 5th version?


    EDIT: I re-tested multiple ROMs and my conclusion is that Android 11 seems to be breaking the NFC in some way. All Android 11 ROMs that I tested (LineageOS, CrDroid, Evolution X) seems to have broken NFC. On the other hand, older LineageOS and Evolution X that are based on Android 10 seems to have their NFC working fine. So, if NFC is a feature that you use a lot, try sticking with Android 10 (Q) based ROMs for now.

    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!

    Hello Ivan. Just bought an old s7 edge on ebay in nice condition and I have just installed your rom, everything working really smooth so far, looking forward to testing over the next few days. Hope to use this as my daily.

    Thank you very much for your hard work and kindness to share. :)

      Same as some reported camera just stops working and have to reboot to fix. Sometimes I can use it few times and sometimes it crashes after first try. Tried few different apps and same results (including footej 2 aop). Other than that everything seems fine.

      Hi excellent rom to play with. But as reported many times, terrible sound on phone calls. Probable cause being lineage itself but why not state this clearly? We all waste time expecting a different outcome. Thx

      * Your warranty is now void.
      *
      * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
      * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
      * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
      * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
      * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
      */

      Working:
      - Wifi
      - Sound
      - mali drivers
      - USB tethering
      - HW Backed video Playback
      - Ril (Mobile data,calls, sms and stuff)
      - Sensors
      - Buttons and their backlight
      - Bluetooth

      - Stuff I didn't test yet

      - Mobicore
      - SW codecs

      Not Working
      -



      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

      Downloads:
      Google Drive
      Mega.nz
      MD5: 6b15dac509288359d4abc612cf2b4ead

      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
