as for echo we im trying to figure it out but its a weird proprietary mess of ril and audio effect libs hopefully this can be figured out, as for face recognition google removed it from gapps as it wasn't secure and roms that do implement it use weird and insecure implementations that hack around a lot of parts of os itself to even work

Hi Ivan, for some reason, I'm not able to use bubbles with WhatsApp, Discord, the like, and I'd really like to use them. I've tested this a bit, I've checked the settings to see if bubbles are on and they are, I've even checked them for all notifications regarding that app as well as setting a few conversations as priority. What's strange however is that it works perfectly fine with the Android 11 cat easter egg, and that's the only thing it works with. The only zip I have installed with the ROM is the MinMicroG standard package, no root. Excellent ROM btw!

Hello, the rom is amazing, the only problem i found is that while the screen is locked and Ambient Dispay is on the back and recent buttons vibrate the phone when pressed, they don't light up and they dont execute any action, they just vibrate.
But worst thing is if you set up a long press action (like kill app) and you long press it actually does that. For example if you have spotify running, you lock the phone, ambient display comes up and you long-press the back button it kills spotify.
Hopefully it can be fixed, cheers.

Congratulations this ROM is what I was looking for!! No Bugs, everything works awesome in my g935f

- Super light
- Fast
- The battery usage is much better even than the original FW
- Root & Exposed

I just had to install a phone dialer, somehow the system came without it
So, problem solved.

*HIGHLY RECOMENDED FOR DAILY USE*

In case that someone have complications with the installation, this is what i did:

From TGP Oreo 8.1 ROM (TGP_G93xx_XXS7ESL5_v2.12.0, Moro kernel) Daily user for a year without any problem.

- In TWRP (twrp-3.2.3-0-hero2lte):
-Wipe/ Data/ Reboot to TWRP again
- Wipe/ Advanced Wipe: Dalvik, Sys, Data, I. Storage, Cache/ Power off
- ODIN 3.13.1
- Load G935FTCE7ETAA firmware: BL, AP, CP, CSC and on PIT add CSC with .zip extension/ flash
-Wait to reboot system and in "Start" screen go to Download mode and flash TWRP (twrp-3.2.3-0-hero2lte)

- TWRP "new"
- Wipe/ Format Data/ Reboot to TWRP
- Wipe/ Advanced Wipe: Dalvik, Data, I. Storage, Cache/ Reboot to TWRP
- Flash via OTG lineage-18.1-20210708-UNOFFICIAL-hero2lte/ Reboot TWRP
- Flash NikGapps-core-arm64-11-20210718-signed/ Reboot System

The flashing process is really fast and Done!

Root: Magisk v.21 v8 And update
for Xpsed I prefer to use it on VM (X8 Sandbox)

I flashed my device and I'm loving it so far! I circumvented the camera flash issue with a camera app but I'm having trouble with 4g in my network. I can only get phone signal with 3G. Do I have to flash any modem to fix this? Haven't messed with my phone rom in a while.
I'm in Brazil by the way.

Hello,
on my Galaxy S7 Edge, I have a loud, annoying 50Hz hum on the receiver with the current lineageos 18.1 version. I, as the caller, do not hear any disturbing noises during the call. This problem also exists with last version of lineageos 17.1. With the original StockROM (DBT or DTM - G935FXXU8ETI2) this error does not occur. It feels like the microphone is not addressed correctly or the volume is overdriven. After I flashed the StockROM again, everything is fine again. On my Galaxy S7, on the other hand, Lineageos version 18.1 from 8.7.2021 works completely without problems.
My installation :
- flash the latest version of TWRP for hero2lte with odin 3.14.4
- formatted all partitions, rebuilt /data with ext4 because no access via TWRP
- install the latest version of lineageos 18.1 for hero2lte from 8.7.2021
- install BITGapps arm64 for android 11 / R from 21.7.2021

Here we go another motn another build, this time with a bit more than just a security updates
here is a brief changelog
- Added battery saver options (settings -> battery)
This allows you to limit phone charging to given percentage
(By default it stops on 75% and starts charging at 25%)
this can be controled by sysfs paths
module/sec_battery/parameters/store_mode_min
and
module/sec_battery/parameters/store_mode_max
In future release there will be a slider for this
- Merged August 2021. Security update
- Merged August 2021. Security update to kernel
- Misc performance and stability improvements
- Synced with LOS source

big thanks to everyone who supported this project as their donations help cover the build server cost (and coffee ) and keep this phone alive
on latest android versions, As soon as android 12 source is out ill do my best to get it up and running on s7 too
DOnt forget you can always join thelegram group for progress updates and general chat (link in the OP), enjoy the new build and stay safe

    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

    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

    Has anybody else the problem that the phone looses connectivity pretty often? Sometimes Wifi, sometimes mobile. At least every two days, sometimes several times a day. Only a reboot helps.
    This started about half a year ago and both on the 17.1 and 18.1 variants of this ROM. It seems as if the situation is deteriorating, in the beginning I could switch on/off Wifi to regain connections, now I have to reboot.

    I already upgraded the modem firmware, didn't help.

    I wonder if this is a ROM problem or some hardware malfunction.

    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

    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

    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
