Hello Berni,

I have a problem with the camera since the last update. I can start video recording, but when I try to stop video recording the camera app freezes and crashes afterwards. (Snap camera)

After a reboot of the phone video recording works as expected. But when I try after some minutes again, the same problem as I described occurs again. I also tried it with open camera, with the same result.

Been running this rom for 24 hours, its certainly better then the ancient stock nougat rom.
Some notes, gestures can be quircky when swiping upwards on the homescreen. Makes the phone more modern.
PIP doesnt seem to funktion (anyone else tested?)

I can confirm this bug!
Is this occurring only in the latest build? Or it this a general bug?
To be honest, I've never recorded a video, so I can't be sure if this bug is already present in earlier build....

Hi Berni,
thank you for your amazing work, it is amazing how you singlehandely keep our phones up to date!
I do have a small problem with the current ROM, though. I have been using "Neutron Music Player" with your release of LineageOS 17.1 without any problems. Unfortunately, it does not work with the current 18.1 release:
At first I had thought that the app crashes immediately after opening: it shows the "Neutron" logo and the progress bar at the top of the screen, but then the screen turns black. However, clicking on the back button a couple of times, the Neutron logo comes back and by increasing screen brightness, one can see that part of the UI has been drawn.
The developer of the app assumes that there is something wrong with the OpenGL driver in your ROM and has pointed me to a previous version (2.11.1) of Neutron MP which does indeed run without problems.
Do you have any idea what could trigger this behavior or what I could do to narrow down the underlying problem?

Thank you - Matthias

Sorry to bother you again, but I have just discovered another problem: while trying to import a backup into the NewPipe-App, I realized that at least on my phone there is something wrong with handling of zip files. I can reproduce this in a terminal window like this:
echo "This is text" > 1.txt zip test.zip 1.txt unzip -l test.zip
I have tried this a couple of times and always get the error message "unzip: couldn't open test.zip: File mapping failed". Could someone try this out on their phone to check if it is only a problem with my phone or something more general?

I just tried another sd on my device and it is definitely the old sd. I will look for some way to repair or make it work since it is 128GB.
I have a similar problem. When I try to insert my 128 gb sandisk ultra sd card into the phone and use it as phone memory, the phone reboots itself over and over again until you remove the jewelry card or exit the menu. Before that, I was using the original ROM, the card was working without any problems. I wonder if 128 gb sounds too big?

Not, at all! I have a Samsung 128GB SD card inserted all the time. I faced constant reboots only when I used part of that card as adoptable storage.

I understand, then I will format and use the card with the old type "Use SD for file transfer" option (translated like this in my language). Are there any downsides to using it this way over the other?

Hi guys,

Sorry this may be basic question,
I flashed the phone and everything seems great, fast and flashy but I am having issue to synchronize all my contacts details from google.
I have installed NikGapps-core and even thou the contact app recognizes my google account within settings it does not download-synchronize the data.
Does anyone know what the issue might be or should I upgrade to NikGapps-basic or download different contacts app?
Similar goes for calendar.
Many thanks

    Maybe some more things are not working.

    Use this ROM at your own risk! It comes without any warranty! I'm not responsible for any damage! If you don't agree with that, don't try to flash this ROM in any way.

    Benefits:

    • Added F-Droid and UnifiedNLP! If you don't want this, simply de-install it.
    • I've set maximum speaker volume to a higher value.
    • I've increased microphone gain.
    • I've changed the microfone gain to avoid echo in phone calls.
    Changelog

    Troubleshooting:


    • If you're running into an error, please search in this thread if this error is already posted, before you post it again!
      If not, I need a LOG to see what went wrong. Without a LOG I can't help you!
      A LOG can be fetched by connecting the device with an USB cable to your PC and then by typing these commands line by line:
      Code:
      adb root
      adb shell logcat -b all -d > logcat
      Send my this LOG file via PM.
    • If you think this could be a SELinux related issue, please try to set the device to permissive mode first.
      If the issue is gone, I need the policy file too (plus LOG). Fetch it by typing this line in a terminal:
      Code:
      adb pull /sys/fs/selinux/policy
    • If you stuck in a bootloop you can fetch a LOG with this trick:
      • Press the power button and the volume up button together until the device shuts down.
      • HOLD the power button.
      • Release the volume up button and press the volume down button immediately after releasing the volmue up button.
      • The device should start into TWRP recovery.
      • Tap on "Advanced", then on "Terminal" and enter these commands line by line:
        Code:
        cd sys/fs/pstore
        cp * /sdcard
      • Send me the copied file(s), if any, via PM.


    One last request:

    Please, do not ask about problems for which my ROM is not responsible.
    From now on I will only react to problems that I can reproduce and that are caused by my ROM.


    I'm sorry for that, but I'm developing this ROM in my spare time and I still have a normal life.
