can you link a guide on how to add swap memory ?
I used the RamExpander app (https://apkcombo.com/roehsoft-ram-expander-swap/com.swapit.expander.de) to add the swap memory, you will need root to be able to add the memory and it's quite simple to do, if you click on the three dots at the top right and click on "Help" there is a tutorial on how to use each function, adding swap memory has improved a lot the rom but there are some apps like Twitter that still very laggy

I've noticed another bug.... AOD won't adjust to the environment and the lighting conditions. The display clock won't get bright enough in bright outdoor situations. The AOD's auto brightness is broken

Try reflashing the TWRP from the official TWRP website. Also, Wipe all the data including the Internal Storage. Let me know if the problem still occurs.

Thank you @fakemanoan . Thank you for your efforts on this 7 year old phone. But unfortunately the bugs in previous lineageos versions for s6 still persist I guess. Like Camera, phone calls echo, VoLTE, Fingerprint. This is very sad. I guess the problem is related to enesuzun2002 base from which all roms originate.

Also off topic. No version of Lineageos officially supports our s6 phone. Why? It supports a lot of phone models, only ours has been waiting for years. There is even an s5, there is a s7, but does anyone know why the s6 is bypassed? What's wrong with this phone that lineageos didn't give official support? Or is it an underused phone? Thank you from now.

Hello!

You said you will support Sprint models (P models) too, is it really happening??
Cause Sprints models have Qualcomm Modem and different model of LCDs. No one of devs succeeded to get RIL work on ROMs.

Expect one developer, riversky on GitHub.

So, please let me know if you built a release for G925P, thanks a lot!
we will see

What specifically is wrong with the camera? The torch-flash delay?

Echoing in phone calls is an issue in all Samsung devices running lineage. Not much to be done other than tweaking gain values as far as I am aware of.

VoLTE will most likely never work on lineage OS. Samsung has their own proprietary implemenation, that no one on any samsung device has ported afaik.

Fingerprint is an issue with LineageOS 19. Working on a fix. Weird that it's broken though

Lineage supports said devices if there are still developers whom spend time for free mantaining those devices. Do you want to invest your time for free to mantain Lineage on this device ?

What's wrong with the camera? I don't have any problems with the camera personally

Phone Echo Issues are common for Samsung devices running AOSP based ROM's. I have a S7 edge as well as a S9 and they both have the echo issues when I install AOSP based ROM's like Evolution or Pixel Experience.

VoLTE is something that has haunted Samsung Devices for years. You need to understand that Samsung device's running AOSP ROM's can't support VoLTE, no matter which Samsung device it is. From the early beginning, No-one has been able to port the Samsung RIL as it's a closed source. There have been attempts in the past to reverse engineer the RIL but none of them have been successful. You can go onto any XDA forum of an AOSP based ROM for a Samsung and they all will have the same VoLTE issue. If Samsung could just hand over the RIL sources themselves... Then maybe we could enable VoLTE.

Fingerprint is just a small bug... I'm currently working on a fix as well. I hope that i will be able to get it working soon :D

It's their choice if they want to develop ROM's for that device. In addition to that, Many of the developer's that develop official ROM's get funded by the community. S6 doesn't really have such an alive community at the moment, unfortunately.

Same for me. I just wish for the fingerprint to be working for the next update, that's it!!
Honestly guys , fingerprint is the last thing to worry about , this is Android 12 it would never come , I,m already happy that touch wifi sound phone works ,,the rest will come later :) if not proprietary from Samsung , cause then we can just forget about that.

    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

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