Great, very nice! Would it be possible to release the ROM with SELinux enforcing and without sensors?

There are ROMs having a developer option to disable the sensors. I tried it - the prone remains pretty much usable without them. The only difficulty was a missing option to rotate the screen. It would be helpful to replace the switch auto-portrait with landscape-portrait... There might be an app for this out there.
I already did... until I found kernel which made all sensors work with permissive, the ROM was enforcing but only 1/2 sensor worked and camera app was not able to record videos and many had reported that GPS wasnt precise

Try flashing Feb 2022 build and check if that suits you, But I don't think anyone would select enforcing over sensors/gps/video fix

Thanks! Tried. Could not locate Feb 2022 build, flashed lineage-14.1-20220515-UNOFFICIAL-n7100 without Gapps. It is quite good, both encryption and SELinux work, the essential sensors work (except temperature and orientation), quite stable.

Someone complained about rapid battery drain, but it seems to be OK. A complaint about Magisk - not using it. Someone mentioned the camera - both stills and video can be taken, did not test for long-term reliability. Work profile in Insular works, GPS and video are OK.

I tried running the device at idle with all interfaces off - it predicts 21 days. Of course, the battery will discharge quicker when doing anything useful. When playing 720p video in Brave browser over WiFi the battery life is about 3h 20m, no overheating, which was a concern due to the temperature sensor not working.
Excellent work!

November 2022 Security Patch


Updated link in first post

Note: Uploaded to Sourceforge as I waited for 1 week after opening Issue/Ticket with AFH regarding Upload issues but didn't got any reply/resolution.

TEST Builds

I have also built 2 additional builds, one which use Boeffla Kernel but with Enforcing status and another with stock LOS kernel.

When I tested LOS build, Proximity, Barometer and Gyro were not working. Do give boeffla_enforcing build a try as everything worked for me just like permissive build... so if everything looks good, I will start building with enforcing set to true.

Suggest which build works the most for you so that I can start building that either (can't build 3 versions everytime)

Thank you for all the work!

I clean flashed Boeffla lineage-14.1-20221115-UNOFFICIAL-n7100_enforcing.zip and everything is working well!

I came from Los 19.1 that had occasional crashes/reboots. It was a bit laggy also probably due to higher requirements on hardware.

This rom is alot quicker and no crashes or reboots. The only little thing i noticed was network restriction for apps dont work. It was solved by installing Netguard from F-droid (i dont use Google whatsoever on my devices).

My phones Sd card reader is probably broken, because the card was not detected in Los 19.1 either despite formatting in Fat32 or Exfat.

Battery life seems good!

I do like the LOS build, because of the longer battery life.
Automatic screen rotation & camera dows work - so its fine for me ;)

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.

Code:
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

What's working :

Everything that worked in last OFFICIAL build.

Instructions :
  • Download build and copy it to Internal Memory
  • Reboot to TWRP recovery
  • Create TWRP Backup (Recommended)
  • Flash the latest build (Clean Flash if coming from any other build)
  • Flash Magisk/LineageSU zip (Optional)
  • Flash GApps/MicroG (Optional)
  • Reboot

Now I have the video working. I did a clean flash instead of a dirty one and restored some apps from backup (oandbackup/titanium backup).

GPS works for me fine with the old and the new security patches.

Thanks for sharing the ROM with use M4Master96 and that you put the work into it just for a backup phone.
Great news !

Hello, as soon as the screen was turned on, the processor frequency was 1600 mhz and you made the necessary explanation. So, can boeffla kernel do 200 mhz idle speed and core shutdown events like in stock rom? Are the sensors working? I may have overlooked my bad English.
Proximity sensor is a must for gravity screen.

Yeah, LOS kernel somehow runs cool but most sensors don't work... Boeffla runs at higher side... can you try some opensource kernel manager to limit it ?

Sorry, I'm not that experienced, my english is bad too. I'm on whatever software Gravityscreen runs. Unfortunately I am using 4.4. It didn't work with Android 12 beta rom. It works in your software, but since the processor is at 1600 mhz, I came back again. :)

Use 3rd party kernel manager like SmartPack-Kernel Manager, EX Kernel Manager, France Kernel Manager or some other which might work with Boeffla kernel

I dont think Android 7 had Dark mode, some custom ROMs (like XenonHD) had added it but I dont think LOS has it..

You may try to install Substratum + theme to make everything dark

Possible not sd reader problem. I buy new sd card (16Gb) and the card was never detected in phone reader (note2 & two S4 devices), but this sd card works fine with OTG adapted and PC.

Then i buy another sd (different manufactorer) and this cards works fine with phone sd reader.

    March 2022 Security Patches


    Link updated in first post.

    Guys, Updated Build with March Security Patches.

    NOTE: I have changed device trees so clean install is recommended!

    Also, SELinux Status is Permissive for this build due to Boeffla Kernel.

    I got my device to boot and so, I tested these things personally:
    - 3G Network
    - Wifi
    - Bluetooth
    - Adaptive Brightness
    - Camera (Photo and video both, Video recording has audio when I played it via default gallery app)
    - GPS (Checked with Google Maps and GPS Test App)
    - Video in browser and App (Tested YT on Brave browser and PureTuber App)
    - Sensors work (Tested with "Sensor Box for Android" app) - Acceleration Sensor, Light Sensor, Orientation Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Gyroscope Sensor, Sound Sensor, Magnetic Sensor, Pressure Sensor)



    Replying to most (if not all) people who had mentioned bugs which I tested in this build:

    @AbdAbd10 , @konzi , @iokullu , @test.hazi : I have tested Video playback on Browser and PureTuber app and it worked on both. Please try again with Latest build if you still have the device with you.

    @buyukbang : Can you please check the call issue again with latest build if you still have the device with you ?

    @ibrahimefsane17 , @cBirdR I have tested GPS via Google Map and GPS Test app and it worked on both. Please try again with Latest build if you still have the device with you.

    @sid2109 Can you test the newest build in general if you still have the device ?

    @Fix3dll , @afroll can you try 3g with this build ? I just checked whether the device was receiving signal or not. Didn't had any data plan and so was not able to test.

    @gedo0087 Kindly use Bitgapps arm with latest LOS 14.1 build

    @Winshy , @siegfred101 I have tested and Wifi works. Can you please install latest Modem and then clean install the latest build and check ?

    @esysfound new build added with Security Patches upto March 2022

    @ntvampire , @Scorpionea : Sorry for the trouble but Please clean flash new Build from 16th March 2022.
