Just wanted to report back, the device does empty relatively quickly. I was attributing it to me testing it in the basement with bad reception, but this time it was in the middle of a larger city. Battery usage in standby/flight mode is very good.
It never got its battery replaced, that could also be the cause.

Are there going to be any changes in regards to battery usage in the new release? Any tests you can recommend me to debug this further?
I dirty flashed lineage-19.1-20221006-UNOFFICIAL-zerofltexx.zip over the previous version lineage-19.1-20220827-UNOFFICIAL-zerofltexx.zip without any wipes or reinstallation of Gapps (could that have been a mistake?)

Everything looked fine. Phone was at 90% charge, I used it very little (maybe 15 minutes) and it suddenly turned off. After starting it up again, it reported 0% but ran just fine in recovery mode.

Take this report with a grain of salt because this battery was previously discharging quickly as well, but it has never had this "jumpy" behaviour. I will search for guide on how to debug this but LineageOS-specific suggestions are welcome.

Hi all
Those on the S6 edge, here is a new release:

This should fix the issues you were having
This is on the EQ1 kernel with the necessary additions, so I recommend using that over the temporary boot.zip.

There is also a small modification to the powerhints.json file for regular S6 users.

it is likely that your battery is no longer good and needs replacing. I have also had that issue and replaced my battery, it is not particularly expensive or difficult to do.

If you want to replace your battery, consider doing an S7e mod, which is documented well on these forums and here:

Did you use the S7E mod yourself? Is the code for it in the kernel shipped with this phone or do I need to use one of the custom kernels provided on the site you linked?

Also, I found someone with a very similar issue, his phone goes to 0% quickly and then he can spend a lot of time in the recovery menu (as can I).
I'm open to trying the mod but I wanted to check first if it is a calibration issue, your link might also be helpful for that.

Never mind, just saw that a custom kernel is no longer needed.

How did you pass the Safetynet check? I've tried Magisk Hide Props as well as Riru but none of them works. The CTS Profile is always broken.

Speaking about the Pixel Launcher,
Well... There is no one. The default launcher is QuickStep.
I don't know if you got your answer but this is how I did it for future reference:

* Enable Zygisk on 25.2
* Enforce DenyList
* Configure DenyList: {Play Store; Google Wallet; BankApp}
* Hide Magisk from apps. (Not needed for later versions)
* Install Universal SafetyNet Fix & MagiskProps Hide Config zips
* Temp enable SU access
* Type `su` -> `props` -> `1` -> `f` -> `26` -> `55` to change fingerprint
* Reboot and check device certification in PlayStore and YASNAC

    Seems not possible to install smartthings app on this rom. Is it possible to install it on custom roms at all? I want to use a smarttag with this phone, if possible. Thanks! : )
    not possible, it does show up in Play Store, but crash and won't work

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 12 (S), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    After a long wait, here is Android 12L for the Samsung Galaxy S6! Though it is a beta with some issues, I figure I release it.

    Based on the Exynos7420 source code.

    What's working:
    • Bluetooth
    • Telephony (Calls, SMS, Mobile Data)
    • WiFi/Hotspot
    • NFC
    • GPS
    • Camera
    • Fingerprint
    • HWC
    What's not working:
    • VoLTE and other proprietary Samsung stuff
    • SELinux Permissive
    • You tell me
    Download Link:
    LineageOS Releases on my GitHub

    Source Code:

    ROM OS Version: 12.x S
    ROM Kernel: Linux 3.10.x
    Based On: LineageOS

    Version Information:
    Beta/Testing

    ROM creation date: 23/08/2022
    Last release: 12/12/2022

    Anyone else NOT getting any GPS signal?

    Network location works fine, but even after letting the phone in clear view of the sky for more than 30 minutes, I'll still seeing NO satellite at all (using SatStat and GPSTest).

    I've found the following in logcat though:
    thanks for the report and uploading a logcat. I will look into what is causing that.

    Regarding the vulkan issue, not sure. I didn't do anything to break it, so not sure whats going on there. I will see what I can do.

    Currently I am attempting to fix up the BSP so I can build HWC components from source. Will be nice to do that, also is kind of required to get the newer driver working.

    I am redoing a lot of parts of the tree. That will take time though. That being said I will still release security update releases, and maybe if I get around to it, I will build crDroid or something. The future is bright for 7420 users!

    I have echo in phone calls!
    Echoing in calls has been a problem for Samsung devices for a long time. Not aware of a fix as of yet. But using some old mixer_paths tweaks, the problem can be mitigated somewhat

    My banking/other apps arent working!
    Chances are this is due to SafetyNet failing. In order to get SafetyNet to pass, you need to root your device with magisk, and install several magisk modules. This should fix the issue. However, SafetyNet will not natively pass due to invalid build fingerprints and SELinux permissive. It has been this way for a long time on the S6, and I might be able to get it working again, but it will take time. Use the above workaround for the time being

    My camera wont flash properly when taking a picture
    This is a bug on a lot of samsung devices. The native AOSP camera app does not properly sync the flash, however using third party camera applications does not have this issue, so until this problem is resolved use third party camera app, like GCam.

    I have a problem not on this list!
    Post relevant problem and debugging information (ie logcat, last_kmesg, syslog etc) here or on github
    Use an app like Syslog and attach logs. If I don't have logs, the chances of me fixing it is low.

    What devices are currently supported?
    Currently the G920F and G925F are supported.
    ROMs for the Canadian and Sprint models will come later
