sluggish calls when using bluetooth headset

Greetings,

I have flashed 17.1 (20201111) buid on my galaxy S7 (SM-G930W8). I have done so using twrp 3.4.0-0 & magisk 20.4. Everything seems to work fine from my short testing except when making calls via my soundpeats true air bluetooth headset, the audio drops in and out also the phone app becomes very sluggish; eg. when I try to use the speaker for audio there is a long delay when I select audio source while I cannot hear the caller and vice verse. Anyone else with this problem and is there a fix?

thanks in advance and best regards.

[EDIT]
Disable hardware overlays in developer options
Hi, is there any way to fix the color issues, tried playing around with livedisplay, setting RGB, but to no avail.
The colours in this game "Airport City" has turned largely blue + orange, where its original colour can be seen when at the app switcher interface.
Currently on the latest built as shown on the first page, with a fresh install

I also have this issue. Seems like it happens in other ROMs too https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=281187
Disabling HW overlay fixed it for me too but I assume it's not meant to work this way?

Left my phone, right my emulator

Hello,

I am trying to fix the low volume during calls but so far no sucess. I could not find on the whole forum the zip file to patch and in the etc folder I don't have the mixer-paths.xml file so that I could modify it manually. Any idea?

Thanks
 
Battery status doesn't get displayed

Hi, good job!
Except the known issues I recognized that even if I change the setting the percentage of battery doesn't get displayed in status bar. The battery icon doesn't change too after changing the setting. Fixing this would be very nice!
Thank you very much!!!

Seems to work for me no problems, I just checked all three styles with and with and without percentage work for me.
Not sure if apps/software would make a difference, mine are pretty standard (i think) - Magisk, Nova Launcher plus email, calendar etc.

I am kinda confused (forum update didn't help there, search is broken). But what is the current situation with echo during ordinary phonecalls?

According to the first post, echo issues should be fixed since 05.08.2020 release and according to system info in android I run 17.1-20201008 (from 10.08.2020, tenth of august 2020) but today a friend of mine said he heard himself while talking to me on my phone. I checked with others and they confirmed, when talking to me they tend to hear themself with a slight 1s-delay sort of in the background. Apart from the guy today, they just didn't think of it much in the past as the echo wasn't very loud and not that annoying and that they are kinda used to it as it tends to happen here and there all over the place with all sorts of phones over the years.

So what exactly is the current situation concerning echo on our beloved little device here? When Ivan wrote "Fixed echo in calls" for the 05.08. release, did he just mean it should be somewhat better now? Or should it be really fixed and I might have a different issue? If so, what should I do?

regards

P.S.: LineageOS 18 for S7, thread still missing, burt what is the condition of LOS18 for the S7? Usable? Major bugs / still missing features?

Please Help w/ Kodi Remote Control Yatse & Kore. Yatse was working up until over a month ago when I moved into my present residence. Kodi was initially w/ OSMC on my Raspbeery Pi 3B+ & Yatse installed on Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930F Running LineageOS 17.1 ( which I'm very happy with & haven't had any other problems with, However I Do Miss my Kodi RC Freedom! ). I've uninstalled Yatse & Reinstalled it... No go. Reinstalled OSMC / Kodi. Tried Kore RC & installed LibreELEC. All LineageOS Web Browsers ( ie. Brave, Opera & Kiwi Browser ) Surf the iNet Fine, But several other apps Claim No Network Connection! I don't have control ( ie. Authority ) of the Wireless Router! Clues that other Apps Complain about No Network Connection appear 2 Correspond w/ Both the Yatse & Kore RC Apps Consistently. When Trying 2 Add Host 2 Yatse RC it returns No Server Detected or if I Manually Attempt it , it Replies Unable to connect... or Kore says Couldn't connect to Kodi or Couldn't find any Media Centre on your Network w/ OSMC / Kodi. Same or Similar Messages w/ LibreELEC / Kodi. Of course I've Searched All Around the iNet 4 the Answer! I've Tried So Many things, But what have I missed? The Only things that's Changed iz my Location & the Wireless Router, again which I've No Authority 2 Change! As I've already stated I've Uninstalled & Reinstalled Everything eLse! Joining the Dots of the those Error Messages Suggests Wireless / WiFi Connectivity issue... I've poked around in the LineageOS Network Settings 4 anything that could affect my problem & I've Triple & Quadruple Checked Kodi Configuration etc... Please Help... I'm Climbing the Walls & Tearing me Hair Out! ;-)K

Yesterday I installed this version 17.1 of LineageOS on my Galaxy S7. Everything is running wonderfully. Therefore a big thanks to @Ivan_Meler for all the work!

Unfortunately there hasn't been an update since August, so the security patches are from August 5th and already a bit outdated. Hence the question: Are there security updates from time to time or has the maintenance of this project been abandoned?

There are new versions but it seems that these currently are still lost due to the move from the old to the new forum software... I think the most current version will return once the glitches are solved (current version was a 2020-11 version)

Does anyone experience microphone problems in hands-free mode? The mic in my phone does not work when I try to use video calls in Whatsapp or MS Teams.

    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):

    Using it for years to check if anything changes after updating my devices.

    So coffee and donations to help cover build/development server cost are as always welcome, Enjoy new build and new and reborn S7
