Hi,

Can you use encryption with this ROM? I flashed it yesterday, worked like a charm, and after setting everything up I enabled encryption. The process seemed to be going well until the final reboot, where I was asked to provide my password to decrypt, after which the system started booting up, but then got stuck, crashed and restarted in recovery without asking a password, thus not being able to even get access to my storage. If I restart it, it will again start the cycle (start - ask password - boot - crash - restart in recovery).

I'll just wipe everything and start again, but thought I'd share because I'd like to be able to use encryption in future, but not have my phone bricked by it :)

Thanks

EDIT: After wiping and installing again it did work, though I lost all data on the faulty encrypted internal storage

Is there a way to get VoLTE on this ROM or HD voice calling? I know it depends on the carrier and the ROM, but I was not sure if it is even possible with a custom rom.

Thanks

For the life of me I cannot figure out how to solve thr BiTGapps Error:1 when flashing, I tried rebooting back into TWRP and checking off System box on Mount tab but no luck still getting error, the install packages are all newer ones then the OS so no issues there.

SDK Android not supported or something.....Is there new flashing methods now in 2021? I havent flashed awhile lol

Edit:
Upgraded TWRP to latest 3.5.0.9.0
Downloaded latest Magisk Module 21.4

Tried flashing again, I can flash ROM + Magisk no errors! but when flashing the BitGapps I am presented with error.

Device is/was also encrypted! IDK if this makes a problem or not.

The steps I follow are as follows:
1) flash los17
2)reboot back into recovery
3)Go to mount and check system box
4)flash Bitgapps
5)reboot into system

Tried the steps above and still same error: 1 as before. Also realized that my Bitgapps was out-of-date on R17 so I downloaded the R20 (latest version), tried the above steps and STILLLLLL ERROR:1 but this time there was NO unsupported Android SDK version LUL

UPDATE: FIXED! was using wrong file for ROM

I noticed that IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack mobile broadband does not work.
APN Protocol=IPv4 and APN Protocol=IPv6 works but if I set APN Protocol=IPv4/IPv6, I only have IPv6 connectivity. I do get an IPv4 address but the IPv4 default route is missing.
Bash:
# APN Protocol = IPv4
ip route show table rmnet1
default via 100.115.55.1 dev rmnet1 table rmnet1 proto static 
100.115.55.0/24 dev rmnet1 table rmnet1 proto static scope link

# APN Protocol = IPv4/IPv6
ip route show table rmnet1
100.115.55.1 dev rmnet1 table rmnet1 proto static scope link
ip route add table rmnet1 default via 100.115.55.1 temporarily solves the problem.
I do not use any VPN client (or VPN based ad blocker) or custom firewall, that would mess with the routing tables. I have tested on LOS 18 with the same phone, SIM card, APN settings and everything works as expected.

Good morning,

I install new build and is the best.

Also flip cover work perfectly.

But call record says: impossible to record a call

Possible solution?


Thank you

Option for ambient display (always on) is not available by default you have to flash this through twrp with magisk installed.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/pi...enabler-magisk-module-android-9-t3857025/amp/
I just took a look at the module's github site, and while I'm a total Magisk n00b, it seems to literally only add this to the configuration:
Code:
<bool name="config_dozeAlwaysOnDisplayAvailable">true</bool>
Any chance @Ivan_Meler to add this to your tree?

I don't much like the new looks either, but FWIW: the search function is right in the top bar, you only need to limit the scope from "Everywhere" to "This Thread". Sorry for not actually responding to your questions, but I can't help there.

Wifi disconnection bug has worsened by a lot and i'm now locked out of my phone by the good old FRP lock. i'd stick to build 20 until this is resolved, FRP lock was happening in one previous build and was quickly fixed.

Taking a picture with FLASH ON didn't work, and when you deactivate the FLASH and try to take a picture with FLASH OFF, you can't take a picture. you have to reopen the camera app.
but still FLASH ON = can't take picture.

Overall Good, just bug in camera.

I reflash the rom with clean flash now, and set it up using mobile data. Still play store not working on mobile data.

Have you solved?
I also have the same issue. When connected in 4G, many apps don't see I am connected to the internet. They work instead when I am connected to a wifi network.

Are you aware of a solution?

EDIT: I solved by forcing in my APN settings to have only "IPV4" instead of "IPV4/IPV6" as protocol.
