    There is a latest build came out. Can you install this and confirm if the issues persist??

    #79916

    Just downloaded and installed again. Same issue. But then realised its still the 6 April version. That’s the one o tried last time. I love the software but can’t hear calls. And the speaker doesn’t work.

    #79917

    Did a reset. Speaker works and volume slightly higher. But noticed vol controls don’t work. Maybe this is why its low,?

    Hello, I’m running this ROM on my S8 since yesterday and I would like to make some bug reports.

    So :
    – Bluetooth glitch for speakers. (while the NFC is working correctly to be able to pair with my headphones, I can’t put my phone in my pocket or else, the headphone will lose signal)

    – Kernel panic on playstore (while installing all my apps, it was kernel panicking during the entire install and rebooting on loop)

    – mobile access point not working (not able to activate at all)

    – call application not working with bluetooth (if I try to use my headphones to make calls, it won’t work at all, I have to go back to normal mode)

    – call application proximity sensor is not working (my jaw is pressing against all buttons when calling)

    – System shutdown not working. If I’m trying to turn my phone off, it will reboot and not turn off

    Thanks for the ROM!

    It’s working very smooth and the options it offers are just to good to switch back.
    But it still has some bugs. I encountered the following:

    • Phone constantly reboots while it’s installing apps from the PlayStore

    • Wifi-Hotspot can’t be activated (neither with the button nor via console command)

    • System won’t turn off when i press the button to shut it down (instead it instantly reboots)

    • Touchscreen is too sensitive (always activates while having it in my pocket or while making calls)

    • Some widgets don’t work correctly (5×5 widgets are displayed as 3×3 and so on, mostly happened with music players and weather apps)

    • Bluetooth connection is aborted constantly (can’t make it work with any other pairing device)

    I downloaded the ROM-File on 18th July from your GDrive link (don’t know if that’s the latest version).
    Hope this feedback may help you with the developement!

    Best regards
    Renricom

    EDIT: Tried out the fingerprint sensor and it doesn’t work (i know it’s a known issue, just wanted to add it).

    Added a new build from 18th June 2019.
    The hotspot is not working by default but can be enabled by enabling ROOT and executing the following commands on the phone:

    su
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    ifconfig wlan0 up
