Credits​


https://github.com/8890q/ for LineageOS 18.1 device tree, kernel, hardware support, blobs
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/treble-aosp-g930x-g935x-project_pizza-trebleport-v2-0.3956076/ for libsensor blobs
https://github.com/NotKit for giving me very helpful hints about ubports/halium specifics
https://github.com/ExpressLuke for testing the edge on my behalf

these awesome people gave me useful pointers for https://github.com/Kethen/herolte_treble to come to fruition, and is used in this port:

Status​


The following are tested working:
Manual brightness
Automatic brightness
Vibration
Camera
SMS
Phone calls in/out
SD card detection and access
Fingerprint reader (viper only, /dev/vfsspi, s7 seems to ship another reader too, /dev/esfp0, but I can't test it without one)
GPS
Proximity sensor
Auto rotation
Touchscreen
Audio
MTP access
WiFi
Hotspot
Bluetooth
Online charging
Offline charging
Wireless charging
Hardware video playback
Notification light

Known issues:
A/V desync on the camcorder, but it seems to be a ubports issue
Bluetooth audio could be a bit finicky and might require using `pactl` on terminal depending on the bluetooth audio device

There might be other instabilities that I do not know of, use at your own risk

OTA does not work with twrp

I installed this again and on the setup the device did not find any wifi connection. I had to skip the setup and turn on and off wifi several times until it started to show any wifi connections.

Edit:
I just saw new build is up. I will test another day.

I installed an hour ago and stopped the ota update since you warned about it, after reading the linked thread I installed the Ubports recovery in the assets for the 23 July release and finished the ota upgrade without any trouble.
Thank you for the outstanding work, everything seems to be running smoothly.
