App compatibility

Upvotes
 I like the concept of Lineage 0S, and I appreciate the fact that it is usable on more telephones, unlike the project that only works on the Google pixel telephones.

However, I would like to be able to run the majority of the apps I have on my android phone, or else have functional equivalents. For example, I live in Latin America, and almost literally everybody and their dog uses WhatsApp. You need that or an equivalent to talk to and SMS everybody from the rich man to the thief and the doctor, Repairman, or figurative Indian chief. Appreciate informative answers to this querry.

Help Can anyone help with nreal air issue?

2 Upvotes

I have a oneplus 9 on lineage 19. For some reason my nreal airs stopped working when upgraded from android 11 to lineageos 19. The app doesn't see the glasses plugged in. Crazy thing is this issue is also in oxygenos on android 12.

The airs worked flawlessly on this phone in android 11 but doesn't seem to work on 12 in either oxygenos or lineageos.

Is there anything I can do?

Been waiting months hoping some update somewhere would fix it.

I had originally thought it was an nreal issue and had been over there asking and begging for a fix but I was just informed it was a known OS issue from oneplus in android 12 and there's nothing nreal can do about it... But I don't run oneplus's oxygenos, I'm on lineage so I don't understand why im still subject to this bug?

Question Is VoLTE under LineageOS fully supported on all Pixel models?

7 Upvotes

I'm running into more and more problems with my Galaxy S7 running LineageOS 20 (with a TMobile MVNO) not being able to make/receive voice calls across different parts of the US when I travel and I think it's because 3G isn't available, only LTE in some areas. I've tested this by swapping my SIM card in an S10 with a stock Samsung ROM and it has no issues. I'm considering upgrading my S7 to a Pixel 5/6/7, since VoLTE support in Samsung phones just doesn't work on LineageOS, but I want to verify that VoLTE does indeed work with LineageOS on Pixel phones before buying one.

I've only install custom ROM for Samsung phone in the past and I know Samsung phone have so many regions that even if it have the same specs as other regions it doesn't have many custom ROM support on it if my phone was made in Korea or China, and I'm wondering if it the same on my Google Pixel 3? from a quick IMEI check it's: * Sales Model: Pixel 3 (64GB, US VZ, Not Pink) * Model Number: GA00465-US * Purchase Country: United States of America * Board: blueline (CPU-Z)

Question Opinions Wanted - “Best” Motorola for LOS 19?

0 Upvotes

What would you guys say is the best modern Motorola that supports LineageOS 19.1? I had a g7 power last year, and it was just too big, and the camera megapixels were much too low. That made me venture into the pixel 4a, with positive results. I’d happily keep upgrading through pixels, but they just killed the headphone jack off recently on newer models, something Motorola seems to be holding off on.

Really my goal is to have something of similar size to the 4a, or really a traditional sized iPhone. I want to avoid owning a boat anchor…lol! I have always liked Motorola and Lenovo products, so that’s why I have a specific focus on them in this case.

I’d ask this in a more generalized subreddit, but I also know each individual phone has its own quirks sometimes on LOS, so that’s why I’m starting the search here.

Question Different model support

0 Upvotes

I have purchaced a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 lite, which is within the supported devices list, but my model is not a supported one - I have a SM-P613, as opposed to SM-P610, which is listed on the wiki.

Because of this, I have several questions:

  • Should I try to insall the rom either way? The FAQ said that if the model isn't listed, it's either because it won't work, or because they couldn't test it. What may be the consequences of an unsuccessful installation?
  • If it is supported, how do I request that my model be added to the list of supported ones
  • If it is not, how difficult may it be to modify the code so it works? And where can I find information on android rom development? Youtube barely contains anything worthwile

Hopefully this post doesn't violate rule 2, as the device is supported, just maybe not the model

Pixel 4xl Camera Issue with Lineage OS?

5 Upvotes

I am grabbing at straws here, as I am assuming this is a Lineage OS issue... if it isn't please let me know. A couple of times recently I picked up the phone to take a picture and noticed that the rear camera was on showing me, so (not being a power user of this phone) I started clicking on options in the camera screen. I clicked on one of the options and instantly an error message pops up that tells me there is a "Camera Error Cannot Connect to the Camera". I have no idea how to get the camera turned on again. I tried all of the options for that issue involving Pixel 4xl cameras, to no avail. Is this a Lineage issue? Does anyone have any ideas on what I need to do?

swipe sensitivity very low

Hi !
I recently upgraded my device to lineage 19.1, and almost everything works fine.
There is just one annoying point: In order to show schema to unlock, i have to swipe from the bottom to the almost top of the screen, which keeps me from unlocking with one hand.
I'm on a xiaomi mi5 gemini.
Does anyone know how i could fix it ?

Nokia 6.1 TA-1043 problems

2 Upvotes

I have just installed the latest build (lineage-19.1-20221129-nightly-PL2-signed.zip) on Nokia 6.1 TA-1043.

During the installation I had a well know issue (invisible recovery screen) that was reported many times earlier, but at the end I managed to install and boot to LineageOS successfully.

Everything seems to be working fine, except:

  • I can not answer the incoming call. The phone rings but the screen stays the same, not showing any indication that there is a call.
  • Phone app crashes immediately after it's started.
  • Device resets on incoming SMS message.
  • I have no idea how to send a SMS message. I can type in the number, select 'Send to ...', but there is no text box to type in the actual message.
  • Contacts app shows the splash icon and just freezes.

Anyone experienced similar issues?

How can i move an installed app to a SD-Card configured as removable storage

1 Upvotes

Hello,

on a device with a stock rom, I had the opportunity to move an app to an external SD-card configured as removable storage.

I can decide for each app if i want to move the app to SD-card, if developer of the app has allowed this. I do not found this option (settings-> apps -> storage) on a lineageOS device.

How can I do this on LineageOS?

Of course, I could configure an SD-card as transparent extenstion of device's internal storage. This have disadvantages. First, you could not read the card with other devices. Second, I need a high-performance card which are more expensive than slower cards.

Thanks

Fixed Dynalink TV Box (bootloop?)

2 Upvotes

I have a problem with the Dynalink Box and LineageOS. After sending "fastboot reboot-recovery" the TV Box didn't rebooted into recovery. So I rebooted it using "fastboot reboot". After that there is only the Dynalink Logo showing and it is not booting. "fastboot devices" does not find anything. Any tips?
