Hi everyone,

I just installed on my SM-N950N/F (not sure, however, it is a dual sim phone). After the successful installed, I noticed my phone is no more connected to my cellular network. It is showing "Emergency Calls Only - network name" - phone cannot make or receive calls, however, the phone is picking up the correct network name.

Also, no more dual IMEI's are showing only 1 IMEI is listed in the phone.

I reverted back to LamLazy ROM, and both sims are working. Is it me or anyone else is also having the same issue?

Can you provide the link for lamlazy rom? I can't find it

I tried to install dual speaker mod and replaced Mixer_paths file
but after reboot lost all sounds (calls, stereo)

How do I get it back? I had the stock mixer_paths backed up but it isn't working even after replacing the file

@sauudmir I use es file explorer pro, which as far as I can remember has the older interface. However, from my experience it is important that the permissions are actually 755 (so read/write/execute for user, read/execute for others).
If that doesn't help then I don't really have any idea of why that wouldn't work.

I installed solid explorer and set the root permissions to 755

Can you guide me towards the safest way to increase the volime?

I reflashed os and my volume is back for now but it's low hence trying to increase it

I am not daily-driving a Note 8 anymore, but last time I checked this post was still valid. Also my apologies, I wrote 755 instead of 664 our of habits for web servers.

Fingerprint service randomly hangs causing soft reboot

I would do a bug report to @Stricted. I am on Note 8, I installed nano GApps and many applications. The ROM is overall stable but I am experiencing random soft reboots (device boots then bootanimation indefinitely) that are very annoying. I have experience on building roms so I managed to grab the logcat exactly during a reboot and I think that the problem is the following:
Code:

Why the fingerprint service hangs?

I am also using Lawnchair alpha that crashes very often but I do not think that the problem depends on that, in any case I would be happy to contribute to solving issues but I am starting from scratch for this device, so it will take some time for me to downloading sources and so on. I hope to fix this because I want to use this rom as a daily driver.

I also attach last_kmsg and logcat to this post here. Thank you for your work! :good:

I tried flashing this ROM to my Note 8 but had lots of black screen during initial boot, crashing during setup, and then crashing in operation (every couple of minutes). Oddly, I get worse black screen issues with 16.0 but on a beta version of 18.1 I stumbled across everything works well besides a couple of security messages (SELinux and Build signature). However, I was concerned that using it in anger might not be a great idea for that reason?!

Any ideas what the problem with 17.1 might be? Or when we might see a publicly released version of 18.1 for greatlte?

Thanks for your efforts!

Have you tried clean install of 17.1? Have been using it without any problems

Can you share the link for 18.1?
Also why did you remove 18.1? Did you encounter some issues in the rom?

Found newer builds at https://lineage.stricted.net/greatlte
(last one dated 2021-02-15)
I would like to make a build myself. (I am not completely new to this, did one for my older note3 before)

Hence I have the following questions:
  • Is that built from the official lineage repo?
  • Are there any patches applied?
  • Maybe to answer both: Are the build scripts and repos used by the above inofficial page accessible somewhere?
  • Is there any progress on a LinageOS for MicroG build?
Many thanks.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10 (Q), 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.


    Bugs :
    • Signal bar is broken, it's like empty most of the time
    • Screen Cast
    • Selinux permissive


    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.

    What is your--
