Xiaomi changed the frontcam sensor with 11-2020 batch.
It is now OV13B10 (Omnivision). The old one is OV13855.
Android 10 rom's doesn't connect to this new camera.
LOS 17.1 can't this too,
Because I found that some A11 rom's does work with OV13B10 , I think LOS 18.1 will do too.
So that's why! Thanks a lot for clearing things out!

Hi to everyone,

Thank you for your work @DarkJoker360 !

How to flash upgrade onto your previous 18.1 unofficial Lineage OS?

Presently, twrp doesn't allow me to decrypt...

My phone's protected with password. I know it but I don't know how to force twrp to ask it since I've installed your Lineage a few days ago. Is there a solution for this. I've formatted data before installing this ROM, and before I had your official 17.1 Lineage OS one.

Is it advsable to only format data after flashing the ROM?

Thanks for any input on this.

Cheers!

Hi,

1. Can you please confirm that you can access your internal storage when you boot hellas twrp recovery?

2. Is your phone encrypted?

3. Do you have any lock protection set up in there? (pin, password, pattern...)?

Thanks in advance.
1. I can access the internal storage through twrp
2. No. I'm not encrypted. I always flash DFE zip after a rom install
3. No. Once i got a screen to set a password. I got to know that it was due to the storage being encrypted. That occured after a LOS update. As i was changing roms at the time, i formatted the internal storage and the problem was fixed

Thanks for this amazing ROM!
Almost everything works (Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T):
Camera - Working (I'm using this app: Camera App)
Microphone - Working (For some reason in 17.1 it wasn't working)
Mouse and keyboard works perfectly (MIUI had a problem with this)
However some AR applications do not work, I think it can be a problem with the unity engine, because some Google Ar (that don't use unity engine) applications are working.

Hi Folks,
thanks @DarkJoker360 for this amazing rom! Everything went fine for me on my willow! Upgrade from official LOS17.1.
OrangeFox Recovery R11.0.1. Wipe Dalvik/Art, Cache, System, Vendor, Data. Flash latest LOS18.1 and Magisk 22.1.zip (rename apk to zip) Phone is encrypted and I can access internal storage as well. Migration from my apps, data, permissions with migrate4.0 went well! Signature Spoof from @Kingslayer9988 from this thread works very well. MicroG works!
Thanks!

This is not only a problem with the 11-2020 batch. I bought my Willow in 04-2020 and the camera doesn't work on LOS 17.1. Multiple other users also reported this bug in the LOS 17.1 thread much earlier. My camera is called "ov13855_sunny_ii_ginko" (I have willow/ Note 8T bought from huge EU store).
In supported cameras HWinfo lists: ov13855_ofilm_i_ginko and ov13855_sunny_ii_ginko. So it seems like only the first one of those works on LOS 17.1, the second and your ov13b10 don't. (or the output on the HWinfo app is wrong and I have a different sensor?)


Also, which Firmware should I install on Willow (Note 8T)? And does the front camera work guys? (If it didn't work for you in 17.1)?

Bugs:

* When receiving a call, the incoming call screen does not appear.
* The system does not ask for permission to install apks from unknown sources, even though this permission has not been given to any application. It simply installs.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, 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's not working :
    • You tell me
    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 /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (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.
