Thanks a lot for your reply Kootarsh. Does this mean that using LOS 16.0 or 14.1 would solve the problem?
Someone here reports the same issue for LOS 14, 15 and 16. I think the only ones that do not have this particular issue would be non-Lineage based but stock/OneUI like FloydQ. Those ones though have other issues (like fingerprint not working in many applications). You can check the issue list for all available S7 flat ROMs I've created (the list is still in development, but gives some useful info).

Thank you for your followup Kootarsh and additional info. I see that I might have to bite the dust and go back to stock rom. I have tried to find a stock download for the herolte, but have not been able to. In case a stock becomes the unavoidable solution, do you know where I can find it?

Thanks

Thank you so much for keeping this device alive! I have been trying to install an update since my first flash. First, it would get stuck in a boot loop. I tried factory reset and then flash, it would boot no problem. After restoring data, bootloop. SAme thing over again with restoring data and boot, bootloop. Finally booted fine after restoring complete nandroid backup and then flashing new update twice. Who knows. But now, it freezes when I try unlocking homescreen. Notifications say SD card cannot be found.

Could it be that all my problems are related to adopted storage? How do I update with a system on adopted SD?
(I am only trying to update from LOS 17 from 2020 to LOS 17 from 2022 from the same thread. No upgrade.)

Can anyone help? Internal storage isn't sufficient, I definitely need the SD. I'd also like some security updates though...

Thanks!

My S7 was running years without of any problems with the official LOS 14.1 (Android 7.1.). The only reason to skip it: It was no longer maintained and therefore a 'unsecure' device. I decided to go for the not official LOS 17.1 and since then the echo and other things are present.

The issue list is only about Android 9+, as S7 has official stock ROM Android 8 available, so most custom ROMs with Android 8- just tune/modify official kernel and some system components, this is why the issue list is different in this case.
I believe the above mentioned issues for older LOS may been not of the same cause or were there before official release of stock ROM of related Android version.

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