Thanks for this ROM! But i have two problems, things that i flashed on my 2017G:
-lineage-16.0-20220128-UNOFFICIAL-axon7.zip by nonicktoday
-A2017G_OreoModem
-A2017x_LineageOS15.1_UniversalBootstack_v2_by_DrakenFX
-Open GApps Micro

The first problem is NFC, i can enable it in settings but i can't scan any tag or card. "NFC Check" said that the device is supporting NFC but i need to enable it, when i turn it on in settings, nothing changed.
Second problem is the PC driver for Axon MTP or USB. I can't get propper driver for Win10 "stock driver didn't work for LOS" Have you some advice for me to fix NFC?

Any of you getting GPS with this rom? I'm not on my 2017G.
Wifi works. Did i maybe screw up the OreoModem ?
[edit] Ah after 15 minutes outside, I see 3 sats. No lock yet. Same device got a lock reasonably fast with ZTE android, without SIM/Network.
[edit2] Or did google cripple GPS locks in this android version, when no SIM is inserted?
[edit3] checking up on phone after 40 minutes outside, at some point i got a lock.

Well there are helpful threads here on general GPS tech and gps issues.

One thing I think I learned is that a 'cold fix' takes a long time. That's when your gps daemon has no cached list of satellites. That first lock should be done with unobstructed sky view, and can take a long time to build the cache.

Another is that inaccurate system time can cause problems getting a lock. Ensuring that your system time is accurate before trying to use gps might help. This can be done by selecting a network time protocol server with low ping times to you. This can be set in /vendor/etc/gps.conf I'm not sure if that value is completely independent of the android system NTP timesync.

i tried out this fix and so far it appears to be doing it. but i haven't travelled so far to the spots where it happened, so it still could be just a fluke.

edit: turns out it did nothing for my gps issue

hello can you make a los rom for oppo a71 mediatek rooted + twrp sorry for my bad english
Hi and welcome to XDA, Shoko7. I'm going to leave this single post of yours in place only this time - as there is no Oppo A71 section and there probably just isn't enough demand to create one. I just wanted to let you know that you only get to ask that question exactly once. I can't answer for the OP of the thread, but it is generally discouraged to make such a request, and it's a pretty big request.

I also deleted the duplicate copy of this post you accidentally created. While it's good that you edited the post to contain nothing, in the future you should also Report your own post to have us moderators delete the duplicate.

Please don't take this public statement as any kind of negative. Since I decided to leave your post in place, I just wanted to post publicly so that everyone who would potentially see your post also hopefully sees this one and they don't bother reporting that particular post again, plus I wanted to give you some advice so that you know what you can expect, and what we expect from you.

Cheers,

I made an updated version of LineageOS 16.0 with the latest changes.

Changes:
  • Updated LineageOS 16.0 source with ASB May and June picked
  • Device name renamed to "ZTE Axon 7"
  • Switched to A2017U's MMS user agent profile
  • Enabled Burn-In Protection
  • Fixed missing prop for audio amp
  • Fixed navigation bar issue

Download
Any chance you could explain what the missing prop for audio amp was? Or better yet share the source code or commits? Just trying to understand what exactly has changed.

Cheers.

really? it's been a while since I flashed another custom rom to the phone I admit. (previously it was on an older build of crDroid).
Neither launcher nor gmail (from opengapps stock) get dark mode, and there is no setting to change it either in the apps.. which they should have? On crDroid everything had dark mode.
Do you have any advice on how to get those dark again?

Nevermind, just installed a different launcher and will figure out a solution for gmail ^^
thanks for the up to date build :)

Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in the products you find here before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Your warranty will be void if you tamper with any part of your device / software.


    Warning:
    This ROM will not work on devices that have not installed the O bootloader and appropriate modem package below. Also does any build from now on require a vendor partition, by doing this you will lose the ability to flash official builds provided by ZTE. Any failure in this process of flashing or repartitioning could lead to an unrecoverable bricked device.

    What's not working:
    SELinux is permissive

    Instructions:
    Attention! The bootloader needs to be unlocked!
    Attention! You'll need a vendor partition!
    1. Install the Universal bootloader and your model specific modem. Download
    2. Flash vendor creation tool. Download (unnecessary, if done already)
    * On first flash the device will reboot, just reboot to recovery and reflash the zip.
    3. Update your version of TWRP. Download
    4. Perform a backup of your current ROM. (optional)
    5. Wipe system,data and cache (optional) [Needed if coming from another rom!; always good to avoid bugs]
    6. Install the ROM. Download
    7. Install GApps. (optional) [Recommended -> Open GApps (arm64) (9.0)]
    8. Reboot.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, didn't notes that LineageOS pushed the new CAF display,media and audio HALs to github. Since our display/media blobs are still based on an Oreo CAF tag, these cause issues with newer P CAF HALs. Next build scheduled for today.
