u already tried to use headset while calling?

the echo problem paired with the lack of the volte implementation will mean the end of this kind of roms in the near future. volte will be absolutely necessary when the 2g/3g technology is dismantled at the same time. there is probably nothing left (if u want to use a non-stock rom) but to buy a newer smartphone and not a samsung.

but anyway...thanks to the developers for their spending time to keep this old phone alive.
yep already tried and tested and can confirm echo is present.

I agree, volte will become absolutely necessary. Fortunately we have the likes of floyd rom and others with android 10, so it wont be the end of the world if we are just stuck on that forever.

who knows though, maybe someone will work out how to fix the echo problems and it'll get back-dated. I'm sure someone with kernel experience will be able to fix it, if they feel the motivation to dev. floyd rom was a very poor performer with its original stock kernel but once morokernel was made compatible it fixed a ton of issues, as well as massively increased performance.

The s7 edge is just far too much end of life now i think and most devs have moved away from doing proper support for the device, its now more like what low hanging fruit is available that can easily be back ported.

I really miss the automation quick panel where you can control smart lights / other devices by pressing the power button. Thats an awesome feature of android 11 and will likely mean I have to upgrade in the future to get it.

I just tested both calling and answering on google telephone/whatsapp : no echo at all...
Just for information, my provider doesn't use volte for now, and the test was on the same french provider.

as far as i know none of these android 11 roms support VoLTE and wont ever do.

As I said its the receiver (the person who accepts the call on the other end) is the one who hears the echo. Its present in all the android 11 roms. Its not about you personally hearing an echo, nor about you hearing an echo from the receiver.

The point of view is the person who is receiving the call, go get a second phone and have a buddy call you. They will be the ones who hear it, not you. It occurs whenever they speak, they will hear themselves back (echo).

I have tested multiple dialers, multiple roms, multiple alternative kernels - none of which have resolved the problem.

3g, 4g make no difference. I've tested both and both result in the echo.

-



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: c6cf6703b57f71466ca8297db2111312

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

As I said its the receiver (the person who accepts the call on the other end) is the one who hears the echo. Its present in all the android 11 roms. Its not about you personally hearing an echo, nor about you hearing an echo from the receiver.

The point of view is the person who is receiving the call, go get a second phone and have a buddy call you. They will be the ones who hear it, not you. It occurs whenever they speak, they will hear themselves back (echo).

That's what i did, of course !
who would i call, if it's not someone else ?? Myself ?

And the other human being told me there was no echo...

It wouldn't be my daily driver if i can't use my phone...to phone.


I'm saying that there are multiple cases/behaviour depending MAYBE from the provider, hardware, settings or else..

For everybody interested NEW MASCOT and... VOLTE :
lol im guessing you didn't read it or look at the date it was posted?

6fdd1a2a6c80701086867ad18d51881b.png


i dont know what it is then, many of us are reporting the call echo. it is very surprising that there exists some who are not.

i've tried everything i can think of, and nothing i can think of fixes it.

perhaps if you have the time, can you provide information on your device?
i.e. what bootloader / AP/ CP / CSC you are using?

maybe that can shed some light into it, but i doubt it.
we kinda need to isolate what the difference between your device and mine is and what a known working 'good' config looks like.

i'm using the latest available from sammobile, using UK BTU

That's crual ! i was so happy ! 😢

You're right : i guess my baseband would be 8EUE1.

I'm not using any specific kernel and i didn't change much in the phone settings..

I installed once this rom : https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...vbase-v7-4-encryption-support-jul-10.3591647/

ora è sorto un nuovo problema con la fotocamera. Stavo facendo una videochiamata con whatsapp e ad un certo punto l'immagine è scomparsa, ora se apro la fotocamera si chiude subito e esce quella scritta in fondo allo schermo. come risolvo?

Translated by GT: now a new problem with the camera has arisen. I was making a video call with whatsapp and at a certain point the image disappeared, now if I open the camera it closes immediately and that written at the bottom of the screen comes out. how do i solve?

Another progress update on 12, (we are getting closer and closer)
I figured out a way to boot 12 with current kernel with not that many updates, so expect a build hopefully next week due to my busy schedule, Build should be as functional as current 11 builds, Big thanks to everyone who supported this project as i do this in my free time and coffee keeps me up at times haha

Really this is ridiculous, 25 pages of jargon of which 90% makes no sense to me, no disrespect to anyone within these 25 pages of course, but why don't Lineage just make a version that has signature spoofing built in, or at the very least make it easier to incorporate?

Why would anyone install a cumstom rom other than to be able to minimise corporate scum from tracking our every move, that's pretty much the only reason I use Lineage. I just want a phone that has no samsung or google malware on but be able to use apps that require signature spoofing such as eBay too, is that too much to ask?

So frustrating having to try and decypher all this. Many drunken hours tonight wasted trying to comprehend jargon, I'm done, wishing you all better luck than I've had :)

I don't understand what's your rant is about, but since you mentioned signature spoofing you probably looking for microg, providing instructions here on how to install microg is not the developer's or anyone else's job, you have to look for it in it's appropriate place which is microg support, if you know how to search on Google you'll find what you're looking for and even find a whole lineage os rom with microg built-in which is on pare with the rom provided here.

What are some good apps to use for Gallery and for File Manager? I'm currently using Gallery app by Photo Gallery Tools and File Manager by Xiaomi, but they function quite slow on my phone and have ads. The UI is nice on those though.

    November security update build is up here is a brief changelog
    - Merged upstream wireguard kernel changes
    - Merged November 2021. Security update
    - Synced with LOS source
    Not too many changes in this one as you can see as i spent most of the time focusing on LOS 19 build (Android 12)
    which is coming along great (Just some gralloc work left to do and sensor hal needs some attention before first public builds)
    Big thanks to everyone who supported this project as always as its thanks to them that this project is still up and running, Enjoy new build and stay safe

    Another progress update on 12, (we are getting closer and closer)
    I figured out a way to boot 12 with current kernel with not that many updates, so expect a build hopefully next week due to my busy schedule, Build should be as functional as current 11 builds, Big thanks to everyone who supported this project as i do this in my free time and coffee keeps me up at times haha

    Really looking forward to android 12 Mr.Meler. Almost feel like a kid just before xmas lol :D

    Just a heads up Ivan. I installed the latest build ( wiping everything ) did not install any apps, and left it over night, the battery drain is very bad even though I had battery saver on, so went back to lineage-18.1-20210621, which is excellent, almost no battery drain in standby.

    Not sure what is doing this, maybe the updated kernal?

    I hope you are making steady progress on 12, me like many others really appreciate your hard work as you bring much joy to many of us keeping our beloved s7e alive and thriving :)

    That is where i downloaded from, and my device is Exynos G935F
    Uh there is a chance you didnt update your twrp since like 2016/2017 which would show an error saying that device is not supported, Make sure you are running latest official twrp from twrp.me

    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,

    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
