The wife is not happy :) Only one sim works, the other can can send receive call but the caller can not hear her.
I will try to flash fortunave3g tonight as we have 13hrs (time zone) difference.
According to this:
With the exception of the camera the hardware is identical.
I just have to find the correct twrp version.

I had to keep trying after flashing 3 times and it's not booting and the wife started to panic.
But last night I managed to flash ve3g version of the rom and now the camera works. This morning I was told the dual sim still not working for calling. But after a lot of "do this, do that" it finally works.
The trick was to specifically set the calling preference for each sim.
I hope it stays that way, LOS is really a big improvement for an aging phone. Wife now happy :) Thank you.

What do you mean set it by setting the calling preference for each sim?
I also have an issue with unable to hear calls.

I'm not sure if would also work for you. We probably just got lucky.
What we did was:
set Calls preference to ask everytime,
set SMS preference to one of the installed sim, you can choose which sim
to use in your messaging app anyway.
And also changed the Preferred network type to whatever is actually supported by the sim.
I don't know for sure which combination of settings work,
we stopped tinkering when it started to work.

Getting Error 7 on TWRP 3.1.1-1 Trying to flash lineage-17.1-20210103-UNOFFICIAL-gprimelte.zip to my SM-G530w (gprimelte)


I updated to the latest twrp recovery version ( TWRP-3.2.3-lineage-15.1_j11_20190908_gprimelte.tar )and all went well.

First of all thank you to all. Thanks to itexpert.120. I'm New to this just a week ago.
Have a SM-G530W. Was running lineage-16.0-j73-20190906-NIGHTLY-gprimelte.zip with open_gapps-arm-9.0-stock-20181010-UNOFFICIAL.zip. Ran great.
Now running lineage-17.1-20210103-UNOFFICIAL-gprimelte.zip with open_gapps-arm-10.0-mini-20210128.zip.
Biggest file I could fit with the limited space.
Everything good but Android Auto. Play a no go. Installed from GApps, it installed but would not open. Tried lots of them.
Any Advice? Thanks again.

    LineageOS 17.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10.0, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed.

    Code:
    # Disclaimer
    # I am not responsible if flashing this ROM bricks your
    # phone or causes thermonuclear war and ends the
    # world as we know it. You have been warned.

    2.5. Make a full backup (just in case something goes wrong)
    3. Make a full wipe(System, Data, Cache)
    Code:
    # If you are already running LineageOS 16.0
    # (by Galaxy-MSM8916) you can make a dirty flash
    # (flash the build and the Android 10 GApps)
    # but a wipe is recommended
    4. Download the latest build and transfer it to your phone
    5. Flash the zip
    5.5. If you are installing GApps do it before booting to the ROM. Make sure to flash the correct architecture and version(arm 10.0)

    Do note that on boot device takes several minutes as it optimizes all the apps.

    You should provide logs when reporting any hardware-related issue.
