Hi @Helmy José,

"hello, I have the February version, to install the March version I must delete some folders from the system or just flash it?"
If you flash Update from your installed ROM you can "dirty flashing" over your running system.

If you flash other Custom-ROM it is better to "wipe" and "format data" : this is "clean flashing"

If your Phone running with this ROM from Ivan_Meler and now is Update available (Update is the same ROM newer) then you can "dirty flashing".

I did a clean install of the ROM and the mobile data is not working, does anyone know how to fix it? Otherwise, everything looks normal and so far there has been no random restart.

I want to highlight two strengths:
- Battery: lasts more than a day, great for a cell phone with 4 years of use;
- Call quality: loud and clear.

Thanks Ivan Meler
Did you manage to solve the mobile data? I installed latest ROM yesterday, but mobile data won't work

EDIT: switch APN to only IPv4. Works now!

Already since the January release screenshots are no longer included in the gallery! They are only stored in the file system, but not shown in Google Photos or in the gallery. I thought the bug would be fixed, but it is still there in the April release.

When I read what problems some users have with the OS, I'm still well off. What bothers me the most is that the Wi-Fi is turned off after about 20 minutes of standby and then all data traffic runs via mobile data. So listening to podcasts consumes large amounts of mobile data volume quite unnecessarily. Unfortunately, there is no setting that allows WiFi to remain permanently active in standby. A huge drawback!

what about the untestet things like GPS, Fingerprint Sensor and camera? Are they working? Or is the los 18.1 the bedder choice at the moment?
GPS and fingerprint have been working for me all the time. But the camera is still a problem. When I save photos or videos to the external SD card, it is not uncommon for the smartphone to simply perform a cold boot and the photos or videos are not saved. Moreover, the file system of the SD card is increasingly destroyed as a result.

Meanwhile, I think that these are all kernel related problems, because if you change the kernel parameters with Kernel Adiutor, some problems become less. Therefore, LOS 18.1 will probably not bring any improvement to these problems. I think that the kernel would have to be fundamentally reworked to eliminate all these problems.

Best regards

That's right. But performance and battery is not everything. Stability and functionality are also very important. So this ROM is not bad but also not excellent. I would say it's ok overall. Depending on what you want to do with it and what is particularly important to you.

I installed the ROM and everything was fine for a couple of weeks until today. When I checked my phone, I pressed the power button and the only thing I could see was the clock. It goes away after a couple of seconds and I can't do anything else. Holding the power button for no matter how long doesn't do anything. I can plug in USB and the device will be detected but I can't access any files, I didn't enable ADB, so I cannot connect to reboot. Any advice? My last hope is that it will turn off at some point so I can charge it a little bit and see whether it will boot up again. Before I updated, I used the Android 9 version of this ROM and never had anything like this happening.

Edit: the background for the clock is completely black, there is really nothing else. It looks like the always on feature with only time and date visible.

Try holding Power + Volume Down for 10 seconds or so to force the power off.

NFC extended length progress

I have made a little progress with NFC extended length. Adding
Code:
ISO_DEP_MAX_TRANSCEIVE=0xFEFF
to
Code:
/system/vendor/etc/libnfc-nci.conf
did the trick for me. Could someone please test with German Ausweisapp2 or NFC-based payment?

I can confirm Ausweisapp2 works after this change :) on LineageOS 16.0 (build on 13th of April of 2021). Thanks for your hint!

You accidentally tripped Smart Cover detection. Try fiddling with a magnet on the left edge of the phone near the bottom.

    I hear your pain - unfortunately criticizing the developer/OP is probably not the most productive course.
    I don't do that kind of thing lightly. Before I do something like that, it must be really bad. I installed this OS for daily use a year ago because I assumed it had no bugs as described in the opening post. That it has so many fundamental errors could not be seen in the thread here at that time. What actually annoys me is the fact that I'm feeling duped, because the statement in the opening post is simply not true. Fundamental errors in the microphone, bluetooth or Wi-Fi are not irrelevant and should be named.

    But enough grumbling. I would really appreciate it if someone would take it into their own hands to change something for the better!

    ... When OP said basically everything works, I did not expect this!
    That is exactly the problem with this ROM and several users (also me) tried to convince Ivan_Meler to change its statement in the initial post but he is not reacting to such complains (maybe because for most users the ROM is OK and the others are not important for him).
    If someone can provide a working echo and LED fix: I offer 25 EUR (and if other users would do the same then the incentive increases).
    1
    Just for the record: I hadn't any echo issues on my S7 with Ivan's LOS 14.1 ROM.
    1
    Reading these posts about developing here get me more questions than its solve.
    Could someone please explain how this Rom get developed compared to a supported LineageOS?

    My opinion was that @Ivan_Meler has an S7, write some own kernel patches for missing drivers which went into the LineageOS repo and create his own ROM and If the phone quality has reached a certain Quality it gets official.

    As far I read until now, it seems I misunderstood something?

    Big thanks to everyone who supported project so far it really wouldnt be possible without them, Keeping this device alive is both fun and challanging fixing camera itself took over 30 hours and will greatly help other roms including oneui 2.x ports since they will be able to use lib from this rom
    So coffee and donations to help cover build/development server cost are as always welcome, Enjoy new build and new and reborn S7
