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

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

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

Keep in mind this is early build and many los features are not merged yet do not report those as bugs as they are not device specific and will be resolved
Also here are some screenshots

Also big thanks to everyone who supported this and other projects since lineageos 15.1 since i do this in my free time and donations help offset server cost and get me coffee

Holy moly, that was real quick. Thanks for this ROM! Do you think you could fix the microstuttering that sometimes appears on LOS 17.1? I see you have an EAS implementation in the works but only you know the real status of your tree.

Alternatively, could you provide a no-op performance profile so we can tweak the interactive governor through a kernel manager? When I change my governor settings for my custom ones microstuttering goes away until they reset to default after a while even if I enable apply on boot, and the default performance option is janky when doing anything more intensive than scrolling a webpage or through the system UI. Sometimes playing games is impossible because it runs smoothly but randomly jumps.

Again, thanks for your ROM. We are blessed to have a dev like you working on this old horse

So far ROM is awesome smooth and fast ,only problems for me at least:
1-brightness slider
2-calls problem can't hear or talk and can't record in such apps like WhatsApp
Thx for ur awesome works so much appreciated

Hi,

Did anybody try to dirtyflash from 17.1? I had no luck so far...:D
And again, big thank to Ivan, for the rom and keeping device alive!!!!!

I don't think it will be possible to dirty flash from 17.1, you can use oandbackup

I don't know if you mean the same thing, but at least Pokemon Go "jerkiness" can be completely fixed by changing GPU powersave mode from "coarse demand" to "always on".. But you need some adjustable kernel like Morokernel to be able to do this, and Moro is not very good with recent LOS versions. 😭

I don't know what the issue with "coarse demand* is.. it turns off GPU power after 100ms of idle. That certainly shouldn't happen during gameplay when there's constant movement on screen?

Thanks for responding. Changing to always_on does help a little but it makes the phone MUCH hotter...or is it my idea?
The phone is hotter and it still stutters, I tried changing the I/O schedulers to less intensive noop and tweaking the interactive governor helps but then it resets itself back to stock settings no matter what I do. But no matter what, there is always at least a bit of microstuttering. It is ruining the experience on this otherwise perfect ROM.

Also the custom kernels are using a different kernel/binary blob base that doesn't work with this ROM family anymore. I personally don't want to delve in the headache of merging commits and fixing build failures, it means downloading yet another kernel for yet another SoC and my space is kinda limited right now because I already maintain a device.

Hmm. I'm actually currently on FloydQ rom. It is very smooth with Moro and this "always on" mode. Battery use is very minimal, phone does not get hot.

FloydQ is using the older code base so Moro works. But earlier I was using some older LOS 17.1 beta with Morokernel and it was smooth. The later versions (with newer code base) stuttered..

Hmm.. perhaps there is some bug causing entire device to halt for over 100ms? Then coarse_demand mistakes this as idling and powers off the GPU, making things even worse.

I am switching to another ROM and flashing echofix

Does this ROM have all the bugs and instability older Lineage ROMs had, or it works as a daily driver? Apart from the fixable echo problem, do calls work well? I am considering switching ROMs to instal ThundeRStorms Kernel if I can't solve this issue from userspace. as a bonus I get EAS.

Well.. I'm probably the wrong person to answer, as I have never encountered the echo or volume problems on LOS either. And I use this as my work phone so I call quite a lot.

But still yeah, FloydQ feels very stable. I think it's mostly binaries moved from the S9+ rom, as it has all Samsung proprietaries working (like VoLTE calls).. I assume echo cancellation as well. And it passes SafetyNet out of the box, you don't necessarily need Magisk to run bank apps etc.

Well, I flashed Resurrection Remix and indeed, the microstuttering is gone! Thanks for the recommendation.

EDIT: The culprit seems to be the N935KKKU4CTH1 rebase, running a ROM previous to their inclusion makes the problems disappear

    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

    What's your mood, can you not wait? ;)
    We have a wonderfully smooth running LOS18.1 with current security patch. A reason to be happy! (y)
    There is no need to hurry. Thanks @Ivan_Meler !

    for all who have the same problem I had the same, my sim was old i just replaced it with a new one I went local office of my mobile operator for only 3 euro I got a new one sim(the same phone number of course) and I no longer have a echo problem.
    but that would not explain why the echo is not available for some with a headset.

    sorry to ask but when is the "android 12 S7" ready? just want to know wait for week/month/months?

    thanks for your work!
