Samsung Galaxy A71
The most recent releases of opengapps have problems like you are reporting. As a PSA for anyone else looking, use an older build (the 17th?) or mindthegapps.
Personally, I've been having a lot of issues somewhat recently with opengapps causing a failure to boot on several devices.

It works with mindthegap. Now I can run this with Google Services! While microg is great and I got most of the things running, some things didn't work quite well. My banking Apps, App from provider and not to the last, I use Tasker and AutoTools excessively, but I couldn't pay the subscription on the playstore. And I really like Tasker so..

Thank you kind stranger!

Thanks for the amazing ROM. I've a bug with network (it's gone) and to make it work again I have to do a reset.

? re: Encryption and TWRP backup

Device is encrypted. In this state, TWRP cannot back up /data partition.

In an effort to decrypt the phone, I removed the screen lock password. But I could not find an option for decrypting the phone.

question 1:
is there a way to decrypt the phone? I don't see any option for it.

question 2:
is there an alternate way to back up the phone without decrypting it?

both the unofficial havoc releases have terrible internet connection speeds can other people please test their internet connection speeds and see if they're having the same issue so I know its not just me I tested mine with speedtest.net app and got not even half the speed I got in my stock rom

by default when u flash any of havoc os (android 9 or 10) the internet connection (mobile data) is on 3G.. make sure u switch it to 4g (select LTE/WCDMA/GSM in case of havoc 2.x) and for wifi it works normally without any issues and give the usual speed.

in my case i get 21MB/s in wifi and 15MB/s in 4g network (India)

really nice rom but that one thing..
the always on display just shows up if you wave over the sensor or pull it out of the pocket. but not always. the option seems to be without any function.

is there any way to get that option working or replacing it with a full funktional 3rd party app? i couldn''t find a proper one

Working 100% in SM-G950FD? I have a brazilian, stock rom, I'm searching for something cleaner, similar with pure android, and maybe that improves my battery daily lifetime.

Any known issue?

    Can you please list all the "minor issues" you're facing with this rom? plus, tell us about the camera performance, native, as well as in instagram, snapchat, whatsapp and other social media apps. Also if you could tell us the gaming performance with this rom. We'll be very thankful. :good::good::good:

    I have issues with sound volume for regular calls. It seems that the other party does not hear me well, the level of microphone seems to be set to too low (I had the same issue with other non-Samsung based ROMs, as well). With headset (bluetooth or wired) it works perfectly.

    I also have problems with sound listening with a wired headset. Using most of sound players right speaker does not work. It is a workaround if you
    use for example Poweramp (it may have some own libraries).

    The latest (and a really minor) bug is that, after restart in some, rare cases touchscreen does not work at all so you have to force restart the device with buttons.

    I hope these can help you in decision of trying this ROM. Sorry for the late answer.
    Wait... there's an working android 10 for s8?! Link please!!!

    Netflix for some reason shows not compatible with this device....any fix?

    Yes there is.
    One have to convert to treble with help of a zip file one use in twrp so you get the vendor folder.

    All arm64 A partition should work. Don't think we are allowed to share link but will send pm if you want

    hahaha....yeaah i dont really get why so many people ask about fast charging oltions (not just on this thread)

    whats the deal about it? use a charger with fast charging support and it will fast charge, use a normal one and it will charge with regular speed.
