I came to realize by chance that the vibration of the tactile buttons remains even with the device locked and the screen off. (Lineage 15.1 build 2019/06/23).

I cannot reproduce this on my phone with a clean install of 23/06/2019.

Are you able to produce a logcat of your phone from boot as well as a dump /proc/last_kmsg and send it to me?

15.1 or 16.0

Hi there!
I am currently having a hard time choosing between LOS 15.1 and 16.0, I could use some help in choosing which one! Thanks in advance!

    Introduction

    Thanks to my very generous donors I managed to buy an A5 2016 cheap on eBay and have ported our new device tree and kernel to this device.

    This is far more stable and much snappier than the previous releases available as the new kernel/tree is much quicker.

    Features and Improvements
    Stable
    Fast
    What works
    Calls, SMS, Mobile Data
    Camera
    NFC
    WiFi
    Bluetooth
    Torch
    Fingerprint scanner
    SELinux Enforcing
    What doesn't work
    Some 2D animation stuttering (WIP)
    Occasional Camera HAL crashes (same HAL bugs as A3)Fixed in 27/05/2019 release
    VoLTE (will never work on LOS)
    You tell me​
    Installation
    1. Download the latest LOS build and transfer it to your phone
    2. Install the latest TWRP (Available Here)
    3. Make a full backup (just in case something goes wrong)
    4. Do a full wipe (Cache, Dalvik Cache, Data, System)
    5. Install LOS
    6. If you are installing GApps do it at the same time (preferably in the same install queue)
    7. Install Magisk if you want root
    8. And finally boot, the first boot can take several minutes as it optimises all the apps

    Hi,

    Uploading a new release now (27/05/19).

    This should fix any camera crashes (lost focus, hard lockups, etc), I have been thoroughly testing my new fixes and haven't crashed it yet.

    Google camera (from open gapps) is still buggy but in debugging it I think it is the app doing strange things rather than a specific hal issue, it is known to cause issues on other phones so i would still avoid using it, best results are with the built in camera app Snap.

    Code:

    LOS updates[/INDENT]
