[STABLE] LineageOS 17.1 for Galaxy S7 build 29

Search This thread
Can you open (unzip) the ZIP file via TotalCommander??

My Problem with this ROM:

The only bug at this time, is the not working Flash Light on Cam and Echo Hall of Calling.

Cam i use the GCam_5.1.018.177470874.41362666__SG7Exy_V8.2.apk this Cam is working.

But has someone reduce the echo of calling?

Hey folks, since two days I am also on 17.1!:D
No Problems at all !!! (Besides the echo problem, but this was already in 16)
I made a clean installation, and added magisk and nano gapps. the apps google did not backup were restored by Buggy Backup. All went smooth, even my car started itself the bluetooth pairing... Several apps (Banking, insurance), which complained before because of "modified android" now work properly!
Actually there was one problem, I noticed today: mobile data is not working. Simply there are no APNs!! I had to create one.
hint: The APN must be stored extra. (open menü again :rolleyes:)
As sophisticated cam I use Mod8.3b_IDan_v4.7_test2_fixlos17. But panorama setting crashes.

Does anybody have the final version of this built?

For downloading via mega.nz I need an app plus account (I only like to use foss apps) and Googledrive (besides I switched to Lineage to avoid google) says I should come back in the next 24h or contact the domain admin because too many people downloaded the file?!

That's a shame because using the OS is a nice experience and now the updating is such a pain...
For my other Lineage devices its always androidfilehost wouldn't that be an easier (and much more privacy respecting) choice?

Just a question no big criticism I really appreciate your work (and am donating frequently)!

Google sometimes limits traffic / quota. No more than waiting is possible.
For Mega, regular download is possible without any app or account. Maybe an issue with your browser...

With Mega its possible to download via desktop but not via mobile browser on my device, so if I would like to circumvent downloading it to my pc first, transfer it to the phone and then flash it (instead of just download it to the phone directly) the only option without an account/app seems to force switch my useragent on the phones browser...

Apart from the download-portal issue -
while everything works fine and smooth with the newest update. I never had issue with hearing myself as an echo or sth BUT others calling me are hearing themselves very frequently... With the same SIM in another phone (also Lineage 17) there is no echo. If I understood it correctly the echo-fix.zip in this thread is for when I hear myself right? Or does it fix both directions?

Mobile data not working

Multiple days after upgrading to LineageOS 17, I only now realized that mobile data isn't working :/

Could this be due to an outdated modem firmware? Which one is everyone using? The latest one I found was from September 2019 and for Android 8...

Any other ideas why my mobile data might not be working? Telephone, SMS and Wifi all work fine...

Thanks in advance!

Edit: I'm on a G930F, by the way.

Im on nougat 7.0; i can install this rom or it must upgrade to oreo?
Tell me quiqly please :rolleyes:

The recommendation is to upgrade to the latest stock ROM before flashing a custom ROM. That way you have the latest modem, radio, etc.

Have you checked your APN settings against what's recommended by your carrier?

Thanks for your quick reply!

My APN settings say "Access Point Name settings are not available for this user". I'll do some research to see if I can find settings for my provider.

It's weird though, since everything worked out-of-the-box on LineageOS 16 and previous...

Edit: I also just realized that I can't select LTE as my preferred network type, only 2G, 3G and 4G. I wonder if that also indicates a problem...

---------- Post added at 08:46 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:00 PM ----------

OK, I think I got it. I still see the "Access Point Name settings are not available for this user" message, but I have mobile data now.

What I think did the trick was:
  1. Go to "Access Point Names"
  2. From the menu, select "Reset to default"

For completeness' sake, I also did the following:
  • Rebooted the phone multiple times
  • Removed and re-inserted the SIM card multiple times (sometimes while the phone was running)
  • Updated Magisk via the manager

Thanks again for your help, @n2burns!

Update to my mobile data problem:

  • Turns out, mobile data only was up for a very short period
  • I now manually added an access point with my provider's settings, since none got configured automatically
  • This seems to have worked immediately, i.e. I have mobile data (now for real)
  • It seems to me that the message "Access Point Name settings are not available for this user" is shown if there are no access points configured (quite misleading)

Battery optimization settings possibly ignored?

Hi guys.
I love this rom; have been using it for months.
I'm currently on version 20201008.
There's just one thing that bothers me - when using Vanced, a green message saying "back online" comes up every few minutes when the display is on.
I'm only using WiFi, not data.
Also, apps (Vanced, Podcast Addict etc.) only seem to work for about 15 minutes after turning off the screen.
I've marked them as "unoptimized" through the Battery settings, but this doesn't help.
Any ideas?
15 minutes is just a little too short - can't fall asleep to listening to something, and have to keep turning on the phone's display to continue playback.

Thanks

    Does anybody have problems with the proximity sensor and the light sensor?
    Mine aren't working. Might it be the ROM or some hardware problem?
    (i already tried some apps to troubleshoot the sensors, but they are realy unavailable)
    Try DevCheck (here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/app-devcheck-1-19-system-information.3171427/ or in the appstore)
    It can perfectly read the Sensors (sorry for german language):

    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
