Thank you very much for all the effort you have put to make this.
I want to ask if there is any way to upgrade from lineageOS 17 to this one without having to format my phone.
thank you again

Thank you Apokopower.. I tried to do the same and it helped.. Just to summarize it if some else has a similar problem: installed update, wiped carche and dalvik cache, installed nikigapps.
You can install nikgapps right after the update with multiple zip option and then wipe cache and dalvik if you want, it will work too.

Hello, Any idea how to make Viper4AndroidFX work? It used to work fine in Los 17.1. Since 18, it doesn't work. The app always shows as not processing. Tried installing via Magisk and as an api. It seems to work in Legacy Mode.. but the audio isn't clear and distorts when using legacy mode.

Hello,
thanks all for your wonderfull input and above all Ivan for the amazing developement. I have been using Lineage for ages, and I recently upgraded to 18.1
Most is working wonderfull, exept for experiencing a FRP lock the first time I flashed this image, probably due to my own incompetence. :)
There is one app I cannot get to work propperly, I do use Liberty Global's Ziggo go app for streaming television, this app works perfect on LOS 16 but on 18.1 it does not. Could someone give me some pointers in how to diagnose app crash/error logs on Android. I am familiar with debugging in windows/linux, but not very experienced in Android.
Thanks in advance!

It's very easy use NOT the latest version, only use Ziggo GO 2.3.44..
Good luck.and don't update.

Yes I was able to get viper 2.3.4 to work but it took like an hour. I had to have selinux switcher to make sure it was permissive on boot, busybox magisk installed than I installed busybox pro stericson on top of it and itll stay installed if you leave the magisk version installed and go into setting and turn on reinstall on reboot. That version of busybox is the best with viper. I had to play around with music apps and viper for a while but it did finally work. So now im updating my s10 lite to lineage 18.1

Yes no problem I love viper and cant live without it so I get you. I did install it on my s10 lite lineage 18.1 also and it works great except you cant use lock effect anymore and that was a feature I liked a lot. But at least it works. Let me know Ive walked a 100 people through getting it to work because it can be tricky. Poweramp has to shut off DVC direct volume control.

Need some help here, every time I clean install 18.1 and add google acount and some apps the phone goes into Factory Reset Protection after reboot. Does anybody know what's causing this??

No I had zero problems with this rom. It was so smooth I almost was going to switch from floyd. FRP are you using the same google account you did before you installed it? I really dont understand do you use SHRPS recovery for s7 edge? That is better than twrp.

    Hello and thank you for the great ROM.

    I'd like to raise an issue regarding mobile data. I don't know if it's related to my configuration or not, but sometimes after using 3g mobile data, it goes back to 2g E and then gets disconnected. I have the dual SIM version and it has happened to both SIMs.

    I used TWRP for recovery, just like every other LOS build I ever installed. I used the same google acount as before. Install goes perfectly, but after logging into google account and a reboot after that kicks the phone into Firwmare Reset Protection.
    Tried procedure 3 times now, every single time same result. I'm completely puzzeled....

      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!

      Hello
      I can't install nikGapps. Twrp shows error:
      updater process ended with ERROR: 2
      Error installing zip file '/external_sd/Lineage 18.1/NikGapps-omni-arm64-11-20210130-signed.zip'

      Which nikgapps should I download for my phone? https://sourceforge.net/projects/nikgapps/files/ ->Releases->NikGapps-R->30-Jan-2021->NikGapps-omni-arm64-11-20210130-signed.zip??
      My version of twrp is 3.5.2_9-0


      Problem solved.

      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

      Google Drive
      Mega.nz

      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
