Here we go, april 2022. builds are up, here is a brief changelog
- Drastically speed up app launch time (more info about that here)
- Merged April 2022. Security update
- Imrpoved performance and battery life by disabling some unnecessary logging
- Removed AudioFX which was causing audio issues
- Synced with LOS source

Some performance changes have been backported from my 19.1 builds and you can read more about them in that thread, Larger apps hould launch much quicker now and smaller ones will see some improvements too.

As always big thanks to everyone who supported this project and helped me cover the build server cost and got me coffee

Also as previously stated if somebody finds good ebay listings for s7/s7 edge from eu feel free to forward them as ill be replacing my s7 edge with a new one (or with normal s7) because my screen is sort of messed up so i relay on scrcpy to see whats going on with it while testing stuff

Also a reminder that you can install builds via OTA updates from settings menu.

Enjoy new build and stay safe

Thanks for this 💕🤟 I rescued a handful of S7s that were going to e-waste recycling, and have installed this ROM to breathe new life into them!

Hi all, this might be a stupid question, but after upgrading to the latest UNOFFICAL release, I realized that my S7 shows me "Vendor Image: expired / veraltet".
What do I have to do to fix this. Do I need to fix this at all?

You still have Samsung software on your phone (boot loader/download mode) which is old software since the S7 very likely wouldn't get updates anymore if you still had the stock ROM Android installed. You could check if there are updates for the original Samsung software by installing Android Stock with SamFirmTool (https://samfirmtool.com/samfirm-v0-5-0), updating it (if there's anything to update) and then going back to the custom ROM.

That's what I assume and what I would do but maybe there are other options.

Thanks a lot for your work. The App SnoopSnitch, when letting it do a patch level analysis, claims CVE-2021-0314 missing the corresponding patch in this build. Is this a false positive or maybe intentional for some reason?

that cve is definitely patched
ref: https://github.com/LineageOS/android_frameworks_base/commit/90cfe17643aa4ecbe7cbfb1c787217456f764e08


tho since this is sec vulnerability in packageinstaller if you use 3rd party one like one from larger google apps package your gapps might have outdated package installer

or it might just be false positive

Thanks for the infos. Update history on the device tells me that there is no lack of updates - a lot of apps got updated recently, including the Google ones. So, seeing the commit you linked to and regularly incoming updates, I chose not to worry (and on top, the CVE mentions that the exploit needs user interaction anyway).

My S7 has the same echo problem with 18.1 as currenty discussed in the 19.1 thread. The speaker at the other end hears a huge echo. This problem is gone if i use an external micro/earbud.
How can I check the hardware version with 18.1 ?
Thanks

I'm finally back from 19.1 to 18.1.
Couldn't stand few stupid things baked in Android 12(L). Thanks Google...😅

Hope 18.1 will keep enjoying Ivan's awesome findings (from 19.1) on our beloved S7's. :love:

And what would those be?
- No option to choose a specific Android accent color, it's supposed to be based on wallpaper but does it really badly.
- Don't like the massive quick toogles
- On lockscreen the music/media controls to skip or pause the trick have undersized hitbox which means I regularly press 2 or 3 time with no effect before finally managing to click at the exact precise location Android wants me to click.
- Always On Display (AOD) works but it lights the screen at a brightness under what you could set the brightness when sliding it to 0%, it looks almost black at day time. This makes it totaly useless. Even with the phone near you, you have almost no chance to see it. That's annoying, AOD being one of the only alternative way to get notified when the notification LED stops working after few days of uptime (known but unfixable bug, just need to reboot).

On to of that my Signal notification sometimes make my phone freeze so badly I have to force reboot by holding physical buttons. That's not really an Android 12 issue but it finishes to make me prefer 18.1.
