Lineage-16.0 (Android Pie) Nightly

New builds contain an open-source camera hal that has been added to the FP2 lineage source. Please check if your cam still works as before.

Why? This enables us to separate camera from media server - a security feature introduced in N.
Who? This work has been done by other guys, too, on other msm8974 lineage devies. Namely responsible for that work that I “copied” is Michael Bestas, sultanxda, and others. Authorship on the commits are as usual retained. Chain can be found here: https://review.lineageos.org/c/LineageOS/android_device_fairphone_FP2/+/248270

First tests reveal no problems or differences for me

I use Lineage with Gapps paket nano. It is the same problem other people mentioned here. After booting there is no SIM unlock. But when I turn the screen off and on there it is.

Will LOS 16.0 also get the Lockdown feature?

It’s not there yet - wait for next build :slight_smile:

AptX - actually I had to remove it from FP2. Original fairphone does not have it, so I am not allowed to ship it.

13 posts were split to a new topic: aptX codec removed from official LOS 16.0

I had wlan disconntions. I don’t know if it really helps. But it seemed that they are gone after I removed the spaces in the name.
Old name : “This Is My Wlan”
New Name: “ThisIsMyWlan”

Confirmed for LineageOS 16.0 for microG.

While the most left volume setting correctly mutes the alarm, as the icon next to it indicates, the setting one step to the right gives a sound with LineageOS 15.1 for microG, but not with LineageOS 16.0 for microG.

Keyboard issues and home/task buttons don’t work:

Every now and then (several times a day), the keyboard does not show up anymore when the cursor is set in a text field. At the same time, the home and task switcher buttons don’t work anymore (pressing them triggers the optical highlighting of the button, but nothing happens). Back button works though.

I need to reboot the phone or switch the keyboard in system settings from Gboard to AOSP, to get everything going again.
(I first thought it has to do with Gboard, but it also happens with the default AOSP keyboard as well.)

Any ideas on how this could be fixed :thinking: ?

Using OpenCamera currently, it’s starting with resolution and ISO information. ISO reads ISO100 after I flashed todays LoS (2019-05-20). This leads to much darker pictures than before the new HAL. Using the stock camera app is not showing this problem (ISO on auto).

Where can I configure ISO setting in OpenCamera ;)? A dumb question I guess…

Using the stock camera app still has an out of sync flash by the way :-/.

With the “-/+” icon above the flash settings icon.

Wow, that was easy ;). So the new camera HAL is working like a charm here.

I noticed something funny :smiley:

Sometimes the quick settings icon to enable/disable wifi shows the torch symbol instead of the wifi symbol.
So far my best guess at when this happens: wifi is enabled but hasn’t connected to any network yet.

By now I’m pretty sure the icon for “wifi on, unconnected” is wrong (torch symbol). Those for “wifi on, connected” and “wifi on, connected but no internet” are ok.

Is there any reason why this topic is in the #participate:dev category? Isn’t Lineage OS 16 official yet?

Perhaps because it’s in active development (nightly) and because I don’t find the new forum categories very intuitive :-D.

Active development just means it isn’t outdated and nightly are LOS stable releases.

Is it possible to switch the mobile network manually?
If I try to switch off automatic selection, there is an error, that no other network was found and it’s swichted back on.
Does anyone knows a workaround?

Cheers

Does anybody know if it is possible not to force the home screen icons into shapes? On LOS 15 that was possible in the home screen settings, but I can’t find that option anymore.

Scheint mit Trebuchet nicht zu funktionieren. Unter
Einstellungen für den Startbildschirm -> Form des Symbols ändern
hat man nur Kreis, Quadrat, Squirkel und Tropfen zur Auswahl.
Ich nutze Lawnchair. Da kann man unter
Einstellungen -> Design -> Icon-Form
auch “nicht ändern” oder “keine”
einstellen.
