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.
You're right

The custom ROM landscape is a wonderful development

Unfortunately this landscape is not professionalist

So they can't afford to optimize these elements

Either by lack of knowledge/experience or by lack of money

I follow the development of custom roms for over 13 years

I also used different custom roms on a variety of different smarthones throughout the years

And all the different custom roms just worked fine

So the custom ROM landscape is not adjusting to the new digital age

An age where there is a high Demand of optimized OS software

The requirement this new digital market is:

The custom ROM software needs to be Perfect

This means easy entry

This means as close as possible to a 1 click installation process to install the custom ROM

But also every piece of hardware inside the phone needs to work, optimized

So the user experience will improve significantly in comparison to the stock ROM software Experience

There is a lot of room to improve the ROM U.X by optimizing the ROM to the hardware instead of all the unnecessary apps

Apps which Smartphone organizations 2021 are implementing inside their ROM

These apps causes unnecessary battery drain and a unnecessary negative high load on the hardware of the smartphone

Then the fact Smartphone organizations 2021 don't care about ROM development because it costs money

So their business model is High Quality Technology with low quality software, O.S

With the right resources the custom ROM landscape can be professionalist and be profitable at the same time

Then create Digital marketing 2021 around The custom ROM Landscape to generate attention towards the custom ROM landscape

So Humans 2021 will start using the product

Simply because the custom ROM will increase their User Experience in relation to their smartphone

The smartphone Will be quicker

The smartphone will have more, significantly longer and better security patches

Their smartphone will run on the newest Android versions with the most recent security patches for A minimum of 5+ years

Not only the Smartphone experience will increase by a significant because of the custom ROM landscape

But also the overal lifecycle of the Smartphone will increase by a significant

Which will minimize E-waste, significantly positive

The custom ROM community cares About Optimization but they are significantly limited because and/or limited financial resources and/or because of new interests and/or because of lack of marketing knowledge and/or how to create a digital organization, entity

This Phenomenon causes the problem that all roms just work fine and that there is a somewhat of a steep learning curve to successfully install the software

The steep learning curve the custom ROM software requires is of significant negative influence on the usage of custom ROM, this because the lack of knowledge about Technology among Humans 2021

But in order to create a successful product you need to adjust to the new digital market 2021

With the right (amount) resources and knowledge how to create a Digital organization, the custom ROM landscape will be a succes and significantly profitable

With an Optimized digital strategy this market will explode, significantly positive

2021 is the perfect moment in Time to professionalize the custom ROM landscape

I know how to professionalize it, how to create a digital organization with the right digital marketing, but unfortunately I don't have the right amount of financial resources in this moment in Time to make this happen, a reality.

A group of like minded Humans 2021 can create succes

Especially like minded Humans 2021 who create optimized O.S software for everyone to Use for Free

I'm eager to see Creators of Lineage O.S, Black Diamond, Floyd Q etc to get the financial backing to Fully optimize their ROM experience so Humans 2021 will install their ROM on their smartphones and if the experience is significantly high to perfect, they will blindly buy these new O.S products seen this point in time within the digital age

Until then we will have custom roms who just work fine

Sincerely,

Eric

I've installed the July image on my Galaxy S7.

Regarding the Echo Call, I have heard from callers that still everything they say can be heard 2x. On my side, everything is fine.

Has anyone already had experience ? I ask because apparently something has been changed recently.

I have some issues with my battery in the last couple of days not long after updating to the latest version and it seems to be getting worse each day. The phone powers off way before the battery is at 0%. Yesterday I heard the 15% alarm sound and then the phone powered off immediately. Today, I took it out and it was already off and I'm quite sure there was way more than 15% left. Anyone else experiencing this? Have there been any changes related to battery/charging?

Installed this ROM, so far so good, but a pretty significant deal breaker for me is this bug where calls dont show up for me, it just vibrates and i cant pick up. it also doesnt show me the call controls when i call someone.


is this a known bug?

edit: setting the phones app as default fixed this for me

Anyone still having no microphone issues in VoIP applications?

I uninstalled this rom because of this, but I don't remember if I enabled mic permissions prior to uninstalling.

Trying to find a new daily driver. Currently using Black diamond for 9.0

I used my S7, last ROM version, with the parkrun volunteer app. There you have to scan the tokens and ids, which are barcodes, of runners . But just after scanning of 6 runners the app froze. No further scanning and the device got hot. A boot cleared it, but I can´t wait fort that if 100 runners are finishing.
The S7 is my only device for daily work, so I sadly will have to abandon it . All the other 100 apps are doing well!!!!
Annoying!

Hi, I installed this rom with NikGapps Core and rooted with Magisk v23. Rom is pretty good but my problem is phone is heating up in normal usage. Its first rom I tried on S7 and i can try any other roms like Crdroid and Pixel Experience. Could you tell me if you know a rom that does not heat the phone in daily use? Not have to be Android 11. Thanks

Are these temperatures normal tho? My former phone was getting hot like hell so i cant be sure which degrees are acceptable. Of course its summer but i dont know
Just checked after the phone was on the side doing nothing and the temperatures are lower...were you using any particular apps or games etc.

    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

    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.
    2
    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 !

    thanks for your work!

    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
    MD5: 2c7861984f859a12a990500f56af45bb

    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
