Pretty sure there is no such thing. 16 was the first efforts, 17 is the latest from this developer.

Why don't you let us all know why 16 is not doing it for you?
This thread was originally a 15.1 thread. It was later updated for 16, and old download links to 15.1 were removed. That's why there's no separate 15.1 thread anywhere; this was it. Other websites linking to a 15.1 thread also link this thread. I'm not the first to ask about this here btw.

I'd rather go back to 15.1 because battery life. Android 10 gives me Bluetooth issues (stuttering), which is a problem since I use bluetooth IEMs almost exclusively. Android 9 gives me poorer battery life as compared to 8. I honestly don't care about being on the latest android with all the best features. I don't even use google apps anymore. My phone literally only has spotify, a notepad and an openstreetsmap navigation. That's it. I care about battery life and stability, not features.

I've very, very happy with this LOS 16.0 and battery life. System is also GApps-free and running with microG, signature spoofing patched by Smali. Magisk v20.4, Riru EdXposed v0.4.6.1, Riru Core v21.3.
I won't ever "upgrade" to Android 10 or higher. And we walk both the same way: Stability & battery life but features stay in the fifth row. No banking or anything else that require SafetyNet to be passed.

As I'm currently and already for a very long time very satisfied with this ROM, my system and its battery usage I only run a BBS idle dump just once a month.
Here I've shared my latest.
0.3%/hour while screen is off is very fine with me.
Conditions: WiFi enabled, mobile data disabled, GPS disabled and location mode on saving, Bluetooth disabled. My email client (FairEmail) and my messenger (Conversations) are not battery-optimised. Contacts and calendar are synchronised with my email provider (posteo.de) via DAVx5. AFWall+, Adaway and XPrivacyLua; latter the only reason for running EdXposed. Since I'm on LOS 16.0 I've removed Greenify from the system as no longer required; LOS 16.0 does a great doze job.

Sorry to hear that. I never went to 17. My S8 also without GAPPS and running just Outlook, Telegram and Plantronics BT headset all day pretty much. No such issues here. Unfortunate that the 15.1 thread was edited. Can't help further.

Edit: nevermind, I answered my own question. This rom will not work on my phone. *sad face*

I notice the title says [SM-G950F/SM-G955F] will this also work on [G950U/UI]?

This rom is a bag of poo. I run lineage 16 on 5 other devices as android 10 and especially 11 blows. Initially this rom was quick and smooth. But it's been about a week and it has massive delays when opening apps. My gallery pics are grey until I click on the image.

Anyone tried rooting it using Magisk? I can't get it to work. Neither flashing via TWRP nor patching boot.img through the magisk app and flashing it via Odin will work. Any ideas?

Edit: Nvm wrong topic

Please make a proper bug report instead of insulting the dev's work. Don't forget that this is, as well as nearly all projects on XDA, free software on which the developers work in their own free time.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), 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. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.


    What doesn't work :

    Instructions :
    • Download the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Flash the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot

    Downloads :

    Reporting Bugs
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log

    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

    Here is a little teaser of thats comming, There is no serious regression so far from what we can tell (Camera needs to be fixed again tho but not that big of a deal as i had to deal with that on s7 too)

    new build is up, synced with los source and updated security patch level, this build also has a working mobicore, and fingerprint sensor
    gatekeeper and keystore are also working now, a lot of other bsp side stuff has been updated, Button backlight has been removed from settings, Bixby button can be remaped from settings again, There are a lot more under the hood changes but next build will have even more of them (Including working HWC) Moreover next build will also move to pie kernel and mali gpu drivers, Any donations to stricted or/and me are wlecome as they help us with build server cost and maintanance anyway enjoy the build and prepare for big updates soon

    Also note8 builds with working fp are coming a bit later as im waiting for someone to test them

    there seems to be a reason as to why they are using older gpu drivers as i just compiled the kernel with gpu drivers from latest stock kernel it booted fine and even displayed 1 frame of lock screen but than went black although i could still double tap power to open camera than use volume keys to take pic and it would make a sound so the phone was still on for sure EDIT: link to the kernel if anyone wants https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zuaQIEGfF_AR4xorB8bE2q_q47upWtR0

    Looks to me like you are using same old driver r3p0 so please stop sharing misinformation (There are multiple parts to mali userspace and kernel you didnt update either and even if you updated kernel alone it wouldnt work as you didnt update userspace, if anyone wants to confirm this is same old r3p0 driver just run strings on file and grep for r3p0)

    As a quick progress update i got a device few days ago (big thanks to @marshedpotato) i already started working on a big update (Fingerprint, updated graphics drivers possibly hwc too which i just fixed few days ago on galaxy s7 making it first exynos device to have it working on pie aosp) this will be quite a big update so please dont ask for etas (Ill also probably replace back glass and display since it has missing chunk haha) in the other news while playing with the device i managed to activate IR led used for iris scanning and i could possibly reuse it for face unlock if thats anything people would like to see

    Expect release of pie on monday, I still want to look into issues with how macloader handles murata chips on stock compared to our implementation but coming from 15.1 there is no regression at all
