Unrelated question:

To install the ROM, I wanted to reboot into TWRP recovery and got greeted by the dreaded "Custom binary blocked by FRP Lock" screen. Luckily, I had just backed up everything this time, but this could have gone really bad (again).

Can anyone tell me how I can reliably prevent this? It seems that this randomly happens when I boot into recovery mode. Do I need to ask this question on a TWRP thread
You might look up this thread on XDA ([GUIDE][17.06.2019] RMM/KG bypass - Root/Install TWRP on Exynos Samsung after 2018 by corsicanu).
On this new forum software I wouldn't know how to copy links to other threads, sorry. So I gave you the cmplt title.

Hi all,

i'm switching between roms but allways returning to this great work. Thanks @Ivan_Meler hope you enjoyed my beer 🍻

The only issue i never solved (an was not able to find a solution on the net) is the echo for people calling me. Am i the only one facing this issue? Is there a known solution i didn't find? Thanks for any advice and a nice day to you all!

i am on the quest to find a rom for my herolte.
already showing flashaholic-symptoms 🤦‍♂️
priority #1 is nogoogleatall ‼️
#2 is rocksolid phonecall-function ☎️
the changelog is somewhat plausible to me
with that echo-issue 😿
but is it applicable on headset-use also?

I have the echo issue when not using headphones or headset, but I can work around it by using the original headphones which came with the S7.

The Network icon is not showing signal strength in the recent preview version of the ROM (maybe it did not even before).
make sure you have the latest baseband for your celphone, I notice that could happend too if you install "Intune company portal" when it create a profile we lost the celphone signa bars however even when there is a signal

If it doesn't boot, it's not a ROM topic, but an installation issue.
What did you do, and which TWRP you are using?
Have you allowed TWRP to install its System App? If yes, go back & disallow, as this will definitely block LOS from booting
This will be the same issue with other system apps which come without proper permission xml file. TWRP definitely needs to fix this.

Here a detailed Instruction:
========================================================
1. In your ROM, go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.

2. Now go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device)
You need to enable OEM unlock, otherwise you might end up with boot problems or be unable to flash later on.

3. Extract Odin to your computer.

4. Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.

5. Download a .tar image of TWRP for herolte.

6. Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] buttons while your device reboots.
Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.

7. [Optional] Install latest Bootloader / Modem firmware:
Open Odin and place the Bootloader in the [AP] and Modem in the [CP] slot.
Disable Auto-Reboot Option, then press [Start].

8. Open Odin and place that TWRP tar file in the [AP] slot.
Disable Auto-Reboot Option, then press [Start].

9. Hold [Volume Down] + [Home] + [Power] to get out of Download mode and immediately swap [Volume Down] to [Volume Up] (continuing to hold [Home] + [Power]) when the screen blanks.
If you don't see then TWRP boot splash try again from step 6.

10. At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
By swiping right, you will trigger dm-verity, and if you don't follow the next step you will be unable to boot!

11. After allowing modifications, go into Wipe and choose Format Data option
(no need to format differently and then format back again)

12. REBOOT back into TWRP recovery again using the option in the reboot menu

13. Download the latest ROM for your device.
Without exiting TWRP, transfer the ROM zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.

14. [Optional] Download the latest GAPPS for your device.
Without exiting TWRP, transfer the GAPPS zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
Important: Flash Gapps and Mods right after Rom Installation, no reboot in between!

15. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].

12. Wait 2-5 minutes for your device to finish setting itself up.

    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.
