@jrior001 Thats great news. Thanks for all your hard work! Much appreciated.

Can you say some words about the encryption problem? What was wrong with LOS' 15.1 way of doing it?
I saw you reverted the GPS blobs. Does that mean GPS fixing is faster now?

Edit: As to my question that I posted initially: Seems the problem is in front of the screen, found the answer already...

We missed a change in 15.1 prior to it shipping that pretty much put every legacy device using he encryption in a bad place that can't be recovered from.

For gps, yes it does seem to be locking faster and tracking better while driving.

Patiently waiting for feedback before I update the phone of my wife. She's still using LOS 14.1, is it possible to update to LOS 16 (the phone is encrypted)?

Its possible that may work, but it is not a tested and supported upgrade scenario. I would highly advise taking every necessary backup precaution should you attempt that.

What is the latest bootloader LineageOS works with?
I can confirm that it doesn't boot when coming from the last stock firmware:
Code:
ro.build.display.id=TOS373K - N2G48B

Regarding TWRP
Thanks a lot @jrior001 for giving us LineageOS 16!

Before I update, I have a few questions regarding TWRP:
  1. What's the difference between the TWRP version linked in the wiki and the official one? When upgrading to 15.1, the official version did not work
  2. Will TWRP be able to read encrypted partitions or does it still suffer form the problem you mentioned here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...&postcount=111

Regards,
Zapp

The one from the wiki decrypts 16.0 and 14.1 but nothing will decrypt 15.1.

Keep in mind the big red note in the OP if you are encrypted on 15.1, a full wipe/format will be requited to move to 16.0.

Awesome guys. Finally we have gps again. Thanks thanks thanks.

I did run into an issue today. I was making videos and photos of hawaiian hula performance and after that of my girlfriend with a beautiful hawaiian sunset in the background. It turned out to be to much beauty for the phone as it rebooted when trying to make a photo. After the phone turned on again all the videos and photos where nowhere to be found. That is all the info i can give at this moment. When i find out more i will give an update.

Update: The reboots occur very frequently when using the photo app. I have to say that I flashed over LOS 15.1. Am I the only one with these issues or can other people confirm the bug?
Update2: Just saw that I had HDR enabled. That might have been the problem.

I got a similar problem:

after upgrading from 15.1 to 16.0 following the howto under - removed - I get sometimes - it doesn't seem to be correlated with the use of a certain app - a very annoying crash:

The display goes black, then it shows the Lock Screen for one second, then it goes dark again... and so on.
There is no other solution than opening the case, removing the battery, putting the battery back again and then starting the phone.

This is a really really annoying bug, much more annoying then the occasional reboots of LineageOS 15.1.

Please fix that. I am willing to support the develpers with any informations, if somebody tells me what to do.
