Bug report from my side as an app developer who also uses the Vulkan graphics API:

Vulkan-based apps still crash. for example https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.saschawillems.vulkancapsviewer among others.

which, however, works flawlessly with the Samsung Stock ROM. Thus, there seems to be something wrong with the Mali T760 MP8 graphics driver as well.

Edit: Kernel version is 3.10.108fmA810-g99e9140fc88 #3 Tue Nov 22 11:13:16 GMT 2022

Hi and thank you fakemanoan for this wonderful ROM.

I was playing around and found two strange apps named 10120 and 10124 in WiFi usage data consuming about 3-4% of bandwidth.
When I clicked on them there was no more information and even data usage was hided in one of them (10120).

Do you have any idea about them?

Hi all, sorry for my bad english.
My S6 has a broken home button, I wanted to ask if it was possible to activate the virtual keys on the screen at the bottom with this rom.
Is it also possible to enter recovery directly on reboot without pressing the middle button?
Thanks to whoever can answer me and to fakemanoan for continuing the development of S6.

I have a SM-G925L and installed the Nov 22 update. Then the setup screen was fine, but when the setup was finished and the home screen appeared, touch operation was impossible...

Might be because you had enabled "Navigation Gestures" during the setup process. There is a bug where the keydisabler will completely break the Entire ROM in the Edge varaints

I tried the last update for a couple of days. So, here are my notes:
- System interface is a bit laggy although this is the smallest problem.
- When I make a call, sometimes I have to hang up and call again 3 or 4 times in order to hear the other persons voice.
- Some apps like Twitter takes long to load and they are a bit laggy as well but after loading lagginess is at a usable level.
- Like you mentioned on the notes, videos have low quality.
- Speaker sound can be improved but works fine.
- Bluetooth sound, in my opinion is at least as good as stock rom if not better. Excellent work here well done.
- Cameras and in app cameras like whatsapp and instagram work just fine.
- I think that Wifi can be a bit improved in terms of range.
- The user interface is very beautiful. Great job here also.
- Vpn apps work for me but i didn't try the built-in Vpn.
- Heavy apps like Tiktok and Reddit works fine.

- Biggest problem is the calling problem. Other than that it is a usable rom.

Great job overall in my opinion. Thank you for your efforts. You are trying to resurrect a 7.5 year old and that alone worths admiring. I will be looking forward to see the next updates.

Good Luck

Hey @fakemanoan I noticed the GPS location doesn't update while using Google Maps or Magic Earth for navigation. It gets stuck at one point and makes it impossible to use for navigation.

Thanks so much for your hard work! I don't know what you did, but even SW decoding uses less battery; but it seems now VP9 isn't using HW decoding. Otherwise, amazing!

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!

Thanks @fakemanoan !

A few words of context:
This devices is brand new, most likely coming from a warehouse in China where it must have slept for years before being eventually switched on in Europe.

IIRC the original ROM was Android 7, and I installed all updates from within the phone, then flashed the latest stock firmware with Odin (just to be REALLY sure that it was up-to-date).

I then flashed TWRP, your LineageOS ROM, Magisk, then RiRu/LSposed to spoof signature to use MicroG and its location backends (they work fine).

It’s only when I tested precise/approximate locations that I noticed the former didn’t work.

I’ve read that in some conditions (like being switched on after years?), a device may take up to 24 hours to re-sync with the (GPS ? No idea about GloNASS/etc.) satellites, but unfortunately I’ve been unable to keep the phone powered on and in clean view of the sky for more than one hour at a time. I’ll keep trying though.

Also:
I mainly use Satstat (https://mvglasow.gitlab.io/satstat/index.html) to test location. The main screen should display the different GNSS satellites constellations, but with that S6, the bottom graph only displays GPS, not GloNASS (nor Beidou), with 0/0 satellites in use. I can provide a screenshot if needed.

    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

    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

    If you want to see the project improve, help by contributing code on GitHub!
