Yes. Doesn't solve it completely, it's just better, had to go back to using a headset for video calls because it's not good enough, yet. This is probably the only thing about this experience that I wish did not suck as much as it does.

I've also had bluetooth disconnection issues (talking while driving, then if my internet signal disappears, the bluetooth disconnects. I think this is what is happening.) but I have changed to a higher version of the Bluetooth in settings, will test tomorrow if this is still the case
I have an original Stock ROM Galaxy S7 under Android 8.0
I experience the same random Bluetooth disconnections, while talking through on the phone in my car.
I've been experiencing these disconnections for the past 8 months.
They are all random, I was never able to replicate this issue myself.
Sometimes, I could have up to 3 disconnections in a row, other times it could be seamless.

Thus, I'm not actually sure it is 100% related to instabilitiea issues on this custom ROM.
The hardware may be at stake too...

This Problem with Bluetooth disconnection is new since my last update.
If I m in my Car, which try to force a connwction on known devices. I get permanently Bluetooth crash popup messages.

I have a permanently running Covid Trace app and Gadgedbridge with a ble connection to my pebble watch. Since my last update also the notification for phonecalls are not anymore that reliable like before.

Same here.
Build is not working.
After installing, Phone is booting untill full LineAge OS Logo appears, then screen goes dark and phone reboots into Recovery.
Had to install last build which is working fine.

First of all I'd like to thank Ivan for providing this ROM, I've been using it at least for a year now and besides some minor problems, which have all been fixed in the frequent updates, I'm genuinely satisfied.

Unfortunately, I have the same problem with build 30. I had to go even further back than build 29 for some unknown/dumb reason, which was my fault, so I'd like to know if there's any way, to download build 29?

What kernel does this work well with? Last year I tried it it decided to have a few major problems including random restarts, and I feel like its because of the custom kernel I had then.

Edit: Is it also possible to have an always on display on this rom?

Unfortunately, this ROM has also the issue with camera stopping working after 20 minutes of video chat (this is well known bug for most herolte ROMs). I hoped 17.1 would be stable enough but unfortunately not. The only ROM for herolte with Android 10+ I've found, that wouldn't have this issue is FloydQ which uses stock camera software. FloydQ works great in means of camera but it has issue with Fingerprint drivers. Fingerprint functionality works there only partially (in some applications it works, in others not).
Does anyone knows a ROM for S7 (herolte), that would have both - stock camera, and fully working fingerprint?

Does anyone has issues in Camera
1. Camera flickers and turns green
2. once it happens not able to access the camera
3. Happens during video call in What's app or Signal
4. Works normal initially suddenly the video will start flickering
5. Camera functional normal after restarting the phone again same issue happens
That's exactly the issue. It happens also in Messenger and I guess any video chat application.
 
Sorry for a bit buggy first releaser and delays, Had a little accident and ended up with hospital so i didnt include fixes that are on my local PC but still wanted to release somethig for the comunity, hope you enjoy it

Hi Guys!

I've installed last build dated 2022.02.14, but after importing messages into Messaging the old messages just pops up as "new messages" alerts without end. I used SMS Backup & Restore v. 10.15.004 to import the backup where it required status as default sms app to perform the task. After finishing I set Messaging back to default sms app, but then as mentioned, I get the alerts without end. It doesn't help just swiping them away, the same messages just keeps coming back as "new message" alert.

Does anyone have any idea as to why this is happening? A solution would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Hekja

A second thing. When doing calls first couple of times people talking with me did not hear any echo of themselves. But after that people talking to me hear an echo both without and with speaker turned on. Maybe it started after me putting on the speaker the first time.

    here it is August security update
    Nothing major in this one as i am still working behind the scenes on that huge update i talked about previously which involves rewrite of almost whole graphics and media stack (This will mostly affect android versions 11 and above tho so i would recommand update to that)(its almost finished but i still have to do a bit more testing just to make sure there is no regression)

    In other news android 13 should be released next month and since there were no major changes s7 should be running it soon after release with not too many issues and ill try to take a few days off from work to get it up and running on it once source is out

    Once again huge thanks to everyone who supported this project, helped cover build server cost and got me coffee with donations.
    This project wouldnt be alive without them as i do this in my free time as a hobby.

    Enjoy new builds and stay safe
