And can you add screen calling feature and gcam with HDR+ and nightsight one as inbuilt camera please !!!December 21, 2018 at 2:20 AM #63826
I installed the rom on the J500M (lineage-16.0-j4-20181117-NIGHTLY-j5lte).
It’s working fine on the device.
However, to configure the buttons (Settings> System> Buttons), there are only options to configure the power button and the volume button, there are no options to configure the home button.
So, if the screen phone is off, only the power button can turn on it; the home button will not take any action if the screen is off.
I have other devices with lineage 16.0 and this configuration is present in them.
How I can proced?
Is that a bug? Or the home button setting is somewhere else?December 26, 2018 at 2:17 PM #64440
