Hello dear Danny
I re-checked the volume up and down keys, it was a hardware problem and now it is fixed
Probably due to moisture or the use of alcohol for disinfection
I knew it was my duty to inform
Appreciate your efforts,
Mehdi from Iran
Hello dear Danny
Hi! Thank You for continuing to work on a3 2016.
Hi Alex,Hi! Thank You for continuing to work on a3 2016.
It's very interesting statement that zram is better than vnswap.
I did replacing vnswap with zram on another Samsung device and did not notice the difference: android_kernel_samsung_exynos7870
Maybe it’s because I didn’t do accurate tests.
I have minor notes for zram updating:
1. Need disable vnswap and zswap in config (see my commit: arm64: config: use zram instead zswap)
2. I think need apply next patches taken from Linux 3.15:
- UPSTREAM: zram: pass gfp from zcomp frontend to backend
- UPSTREAM: zram/zcomp: do not zero out zcomp private pages
- zram: cut trailing newline in algorithm name
- zram: check comp algorithm availability earlier
- BACKPORT: zsmalloc: require GFP in zs_malloc()
- UPSTREAM: zram: user per-cpu compression streams
Quite possibly because I also ran into this issue with vnswap, but this was extremely rare.Hi Alex,
Good to see you here, it's been a while!
I think part of the slow down with vnswap/sswap was caused by Samsungs user space driver doing something weird. The system is a lot better now under heavy RAM usage. Users on the j7elte were reporting lots of slow downs and UI crashes under heavy RAM usage which was solved after the switch to the updated ZRAM. The A5 seems a bit quicker to unlock with the fingerprint too, but it's difficult to say if that is just in my head
Thanks for the tips, I will look at pulling those patches in. The numbers in the "per-cpu" commit look promising (if reproducible on these devices).
Anything touch sensitivity related in those updates?
Just flash the new version without wiping anything and it will update.Hi,
Thank you for keep updating.
I installed this rom 2 days ago on my father's a310, luckily the last update was released the day after. How can I install the update without losing any data?
Also, today, multi task switch key (the left one of the home button) was not responding, restarting fixed it. If it happens again, how should I report the problem?
Yes, the lights were on.
you're right, I just tried it and the phone restarted
Greetings! I totally agree. I have had this problem since the update from 28-08-2021. Device A5. It was because of these accidental reboots of the smartphone that I rolled back to Lineage 17.1, although the 18.1 version works better.
I have a fix for this issue in my current tree. I was missing a patch for the sdfat driver.
Our devices don't have the necessary hardware to support Google cam. OpenCamera or snap (default LineageOS camera) are probably best for the moment.
Me too.quick chagerI doubt it will lengthen the battery life. I have always fast charged my S9 and the battery is still going strong.
Also I always fast charged my A3 before that and that battery lasted till I stopped using the phone.
However, the A7 may support the feature too. I will enable the feature in the next build and see if it works for you.
You need to contact the developer of that mod. Looks like it is missing a bundled library.
