Ok, thank you very much for your replies.

By the way, those of you who are having problems with rotation, can you confirm that this bug has appeared with the latest version? If so, it may be related to the camera sensor library (since I'm building a little wrapper now).

Thanks.

Thanks but I can't reproduce the issue, could you elaborate how to reproduce it?

EDIT: you have giza or douglas?
Sorry, to clarify: we're using douglas. And haven't seen the issue return recently, though my wife typically saw it when watching a Youtube (Vanced) video and multitasking with it playing in a popup window.

Do you guys use the "Shared Storage" (use external sd card as internal storage) option? This thing depends on sdcardFS and I'm planning to disable sdcardFS since it's causing weird issues with internal storages. Just asking to see if I should try to fix sdcardFS or I should just drop it.
Thank you so much for developing these roms!! they are amazing!
I am not sure what "shared storage" is but if you are talking about the ability to install apps on the sd card please do not remove it... I use google play books and kindle to download a ton of books that end up using more than 15 GB of space. the only way I can download that much content from an app is to install it in the SD card. Please don't remove it :)

*sigh* I guess I'll need to keep it only for you. I'm joking, don't worry, I'm already working on it ;)

Hi rortiz2,

Thank you very much for your awesome work and this Rom. Are there any news about the deep sleep topic?

I'll just like to chime in on the rotation issue. I only encountered it one time on the 12 Sep build.
Roughly what happened was, douglas was in landscape mode, douglas was put to sleep. The next day when I woke it up, it was still in landscape mode, I couldn't rotate it portrait until after I rebooted it.

Thanks @Rortiz2 for great work, i just tried to rom today. Most of the time work great with minor problem such as default browser keep crashing. It was fast and the camera works! Love it.

Normally i prefer de-google apps so i used APKPure for all my apps in this device. However, iam not sure what is the problem.
1. APKPure can't manage to install the apps, the download progress is so slow 2 kb/s. So i tried download manually from browser, it way faster.
2. XAPK file can't be opened by APKPure. I tried opening it from Files apps and try checking apk file from inside the APKPure, nothing works.

Things that i did,
1. reformatted the OS, still same problem
2. Use other apk installer, works

could you take a look at it? Lastly, i used microsoft edge to download file but it wont allow me to save the file in the internal memory, it said not detected.

Thanks. Yeah, those issues that you mentioned are related to the sdcardfs issue (which I still need to fix). I'll probably release a new update that fixes this (+ the sensor issues) during the next days.

no actually, ive been having the rotation issue since the first lineage 15 build (im very sure abt this and the problem comes randomly) , rebooting the device fixes it.

    Just wanted to take a moment to thank the OP, this ROM has breathed new life into my douglas.

    Not sure what's wrong with MicroG then. The patch is there (and applied, I double checked it). Can't do anything else, sorry. As for giza camera, try to grab boot logs, they should be different now.

    @Rortiz2
    I'm enjoying LineageOS 15.1 so far (Douglas). I see that deep sleep is a known issue. Is there a way to manually force a deep sleep? And do you think the deep sleep problem is something that could be fixed in the near term, or is it more a long term, to probably can't be fixed sort of issue?
    Unfortunately, I'm still not sure of what's causing deep sleep to not work at all (even though I tried to debug it a lot of times). So yeah, I can't give you an exact date (or estimated) of when I'll fix that issue.

    @Rortiz2 This may be an unpopular opinion, but I hate the default typing sounds on LineageOS. I'm not sure if it's kosher to replace them in the distribution image? If so here is a copy of the iOS typing sounds:

    They just need to be placed in /system/media/audio/ui
    I would prefer to keep the LineageOS sources as stock as possible. You might hate the default sounds, but other people might like them. So yeah I think it's best to just leave them as is and let users change them afterwards if they don't like the defaults (like you did). As a side note, since these will be overwritten every time you update the ROM, I would recommend you to create a ZIP that replaces the sounds (so you can just flash it after every update) or set up some kind of addon.d script.​

    • Fixed camera.
    • Fixed internal storage (OBB) issues.
    NOTE: Video recording isn't working at all, it crashes with the stock camera app but it works with some third-party apps (such as Telegram).
    NOTE: Let me know if obb issues are fully gone (I basically reverted the sdcardfs squash update). Try to clean flash the ROM as well before reporting if the bug it's still present.
