Well, if you success in your project we can be sure that nobody will stay with emui installed !! Their camera app is really good, would be awesome having it with L OS :D

If I understood @papsi177 correctly, he won't continue working on CM13 due to CyanogenMod being dead. His new project LineageOS 13 for Honor 7 is exclusive to the People supporting him financially.. So there won't be a project like this anymore.. right? @papsi177
 
I'm using the ROM now for 1,5 days and I'm over all happy with it! Thanks a lot to @papsi177

Bugs I experienced:
*SD-Card: It isn't possible to complete setting the SD-Card as internal storage --> Settings App crashes when trying to move data now (shown in the pictures). PLEASE fix this one, it's so bad just having 10GB of internal storage :(
*Charging while OFF: Recharging Phone when "Off" automatically Boots to Recovery --> A small Charging Animation would be nice :)
*Camera: Colors in Videos made with the Stock Camera aren't accurate --> Footej Camera is the best replacement so far! Instagram works fine, haven't tested Snapchat yet. Since Footej Camera is really comfortable, I don't care, although the original EMUI Camera App would be nice to have (Also the Photos App- I don't like the One from Google..). Also Camera Zoom isn't working --> I don't use it because it's bad anyway...
*ADB: Using ADB, 'adb devices' shows devices as offline --> may be affected by Xposed but I personally don't care.
*WhatsApp: WA isn't available in the App Store --> installed it from the internet, works fine for me

Features I miss:
*Multi Window: Missing Multi Window, which is available in official CM13 in the Developers Options. I would really love this one.
*Fingerprint Gestures: I do miss the fingerprint gestures from EMUI, especially the Swipe-Down-To-Open-Notification-Panel --> All Apps I tested weren't as accurate as the original feature. But to be honest, this isn't that important.
*Smart Key: Smart Key isn't usable with CM13, as long as you don't get yourself Xposed and Xposed Additions --> Xposed fixes that!

Missing Features I don't care:
*IR Blaster: Who uses this?^^
*All the EMUI Features: You might get most of them with Xposed, but who needs that?^^

Everything else works fine, I already love it.
Using Nova Launcher, Xposed N-ify, Pixel Navigation Bar, Pixel Icons as well as the Google Assistant and most of the Goggle Pixel Stock Apps, my Honor 7 looks and feels like a new Google Pixel. It's fantastic. (look at the pics :cool:)

I really really please you @papsi117 to fix the SD Card Bug, in order to use my phone as usual. Of course, minor fixes like the Charging Animation, the Multi Window Feature, Fingerprint gestures and the Camere App would be nice, too, but not as important as the SD Card Fix.
Thank you a lot!!


P.S. If anyone has an idea how to fix the problem with the SD Card, or to add the Multi Window Feature, Pls share it with me :)

is there a working google assistant which is the real deal? not like using duo or whatever? is it worth trying?

when i installed this rom, i copied / backup my sd to pc first, then formatted sd card with rom format method, and put back all files.... i had around 40gb so with your 10 gb data should feel like no time...

i was using ir blaster now and then when i am at other peoples houses ....

as for lineage, this rom right now is safe for daily driver, i have been using it for like a week now. since you're on vodafone,

you might want to remove mein vodafone app if you are using bluetooth devices, as i had the issue that it's not gonna get into deep sleep because of that.

I could not agree more to those. :D :good::good:

Btw, if i have time , i will post fix for IR sensor on my blog for shared rom.

Hey. I am really interested in building Lineage OS 14.1 for our Honor 7, like some other guys in this forum too. I have already downloaded the repo.. No I will start, but it seems there are some problems with the framework and some other things. If there is anyone who can give my a how-to for building this rom, it will be really nice. PS: my building skills are ok.

THX for support

Yeah, it is the real deal, at least it's looking and working like the one on the pixel.. to enable it, you need Xposed and the Android N-ify Module which you can easily find in the download section of the Xposed app..
With N-ify on your phone, you just need to download another Xposed module called assistant enabler.. and voila, long pressing the home button will open you google assistant... I really love it



since you're on vodafone, you might want to remove mein vodafone app if you are using bluetooth devices, as i had the issue that it's not gonna get into deep sleep because of that.

I didn't observe that one, maybe I'll try later today, if I have this issue, too..

In my case the battery consumption is quite OK, could always be better of course.. If I'm not watching videos with brightest screen possible, playing 3D Games the whole day, or Rebooting every 5min due to Xposed modules I want to try, battery lasts one day and that's enough for me.
BTW I'm using Greenify and don't have many apps installed...

Hi

This rom is working great for me, thanks vm to the devs. However, I'm having issues getting the smart key working as Xposed Additions doesn't seem to recognise the button, it does recognise the other like volume/power etc. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks

check with better battery stats, for me it said the device is never in deepsleep when i had vodafone active, which resulted in a one day charge. after freezing the app i get approximately two days. you can find some screenshot like one or two pages back.

i already figured out the xposed assistant enabler. had N-ify already

don't know if i want nova launcher + theme though... is it better?

greenify is on my list as well, not applying on everything though

I had exactly the same issue, so I downloaded additions pro and it works wonders.. look at Aptoide if you're clever ;)

I got used to nova launcher since I bought premium like 2 years ago.. I deleted the pixel launcher and I'm enjoying the pixel feel with nova, while also having the possibility to change everything I care about.. and as far as I know, n-ify does only change the notification panel (which is really useful by the way) and some other minor things

mobile network not available

After installing this unofficial CM13 I am not able to make phone calls.
I get `Mobile network not available`.
I tried both of my sim cards, both slots (all combinations with and without sd card), roboot doesn't help.

When phone starts I have to enter sim pin, that goes well.
After that a seen is shown where I have to enter the pin to unlock the network. After I enter the pin it displays That unlock was successful.
But it's not working.

Have you entered your SIM PIN at any time during the process?
I had the same issue: Removing the SIM card while device was on, and putting it right back worked fine for me.. I just got asked the PIN code and after typing it in, Mobile Network started working

No, I'll try.

@tomtomk99
When I take out the sim and put it back, I have to enter the pin. But after that the phone gets stuck on a back screen with dialog saying: "SIM card added. Restart your device to access the mobile network." with "RESTART" button that does not respond and back button or any other action does not dismiss it.

I have to press power button and restart manually. After restart, the mobile network still does not work.

---------- Post added at 03:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:10 PM ----------

Could be the cause of this that I didn't have the sim card inside during the installation process?

---------- Post added at 03:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:24 PM ----------

Now I'm not able to get to the screen where I could remove my added fingerprints (I added them after installation, during the phone setup).
I get to the screen where I have to confirm my device PIN, but nothing happens when I try to confirm it. :(

    --------------------------------------
    Troubleshooting
    --------------------------------------
    SD Card:
    - Several users had to format their SD card after flashing this rom by using the built in format-tool which is offered after setting up the device checking the notification bar.

    Camera App:
    - cm13 stock camera app does not work with zoom, and video quality is bad. We advise you use the camera app of your choice which should fix any poor quality
    - other camera apps like open camera has also no zoom functionality

    Smart Key
    - While Smart Key is an emui feature, it's not present in cm13. You can add and even enhance this feature using the xposed additions app to add functions to any key with rules when and what to act.
    You will need to "Allow External Devices" Option with "Miscellaneous" checked
    http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.spazedog.xposed.additionsgb

    EMUI Features
    - Since this is cyanogenmod and not emui, most of the emui specific features such as telephone cleaner, multi-window, knuckle-screenshot, screenshot-video-recording, huawai backup, permission master, etc. - you might love or hate are not available in this rom. with cyanogenmod you get the vanilla android experience, it is smooth and very stable, and up to the closest possible rom getting the original android experience...
    - A few features can still be used, such as smart key, most of them rely on having xposed modules

    --------------------------------------
    EMUI - Comparable Features on CM13
    --------------------------------------
    Smart Key

    --------------------------------------
    Other known issues
    --------------------------------------
    - ADB Device shown as "offline" for a few users (Maybe related to xposed?)
    - Recharging Phone when "Off" automatically Boots to Recovery
    - Apps which rely on Camera Core also have distorted colors on video
    - IRsensor is not working

    Btw, if i have time , i will post fix for IR sensor on my blog for shared rom.

    Sent from my HUAWEI HONOR-7 using XDA Labs
    Well, IR Sensor+PlayMarket Fix here Flash it via twrp over the rom. Try it, or you will wait 1000 years fix from community..

    yeah i assume tapatalk is quite an aggressive app, i have them on my hilbernation list as it's not of importance to see if there's a reply, but do you mean if aggressive doze is not activated it still won't go to sleep?

    i activated doze now to see if there's still all push messages i want to get as well as if it has a benefit.

    ...

    i tried to mirror on a host but it allowed only 250 per file which canceled out. any recommendations to put a mirror?

    ...

    i am not completely happy with this rom... mainly because i am missing the finger print swipe, the camera - hasn't found a replacement app there, and a few things which bother me.

    i feel not like flashing emui right now, but just because i would not be able to think about which rom/kernel i'd go for...........................................
    Well, actually emui has some cool feature to keep (camera app, IR remote app and some more things) but it is nothing compared of what I win with CM (smooth multitasking, root/xposed, better interface as I prefer stock android,...). And greenify is freezing app that I don't want to run in background, and I still get my WhatsApp (and more) notifications :)

    It's my choice, I wasn't using those fingerprint gestures so no big deal for me ?


    BTW I may have some clue to explain why pepsi was so strange : he already worked on another ROM for honor 2, and he has been insulted for his management of his releases on XDA,... That's why he doesn't like this community, and why he wants to stop public releases... Even if we were praising his work a lot. I feel sorry for him, but he's older now, he could forget the past and enjoy being a kind of "hero".
