  1. Update on this. I use FairEmail as my email client. Also doesn't play any notification sounds. I use QkSMS for texts and it's notifications work fine. Whatsapp calls do work - phone plays repeatedly the sound that was meant to be played for incoming messages. Did anybody have the same problem?
  2. I chose a particularly bad example nthat was easy at hand. Many times my pictures seem to have a varying focus inside the picture. I will try to find some more examples to post, would be nice to have others' opinions as I might be biased by what I read here at the forum. With Open Camera I always had to set the manual focus to a distance which was totally different than the real distance between the phone and the phto subject. So, I'm not sure anymore whether there's a software bug when talking to the camera hardware where the focus distances are not interpreted/calculated correctly;
  3. It's because some people are getting to take only out of focus photos, like I am. 😩
  4. Oh man. It must be that my camera is kaputt. (Maybe from the beginning?) I never could figure out how to get the camera to focus properly. All my shots are ridiculous, as if I was using a 2004 VGA phone camera 🤦‍♂️ Example: Taken of my new toy and my youngest feline from inside the garage. Such a garbage focus.
  5. By the way. Whatsapp notifications don't make any sound for me. No matter what I choose on the settings, it just doesn't play any sound. The visual notification works ok, though. Has anybody had the same issue?
  6. oh no! I should've asked around before jumping ship to AICP. I'm liking it too. Battery life's great. I hope all's well with @tdm , that this might be temporary, and that he keeps doing his great work on the ROM.
  7. The Fxtec signature didn't work for me. That's why I chose the Sony one. EDIT: Well, of course, I ran the props command and it showed the current signature my device had. I compared it to the Pro1 key available from the list and found out they were the same. So I didn't confirm the changes and tried safetynet and Gpay, both failed. Maybe if I had confirmed the props script (even though signatures were the same between current and new one), it would have worked? On the surface it seemed nothing was being changed, but maybe the script would still change something even if confirming wit
  8. I took the plunge and installed AICP Q yesterday (coming from LOs 17). I can't however check for updates. Did I do something wrong? EDIT: It means I'm now on the Feb 6th 2021 version. Checking for updates gives the error message below (Failure while trying to check for updates. Please check your Internet connection and try again later) Thanks
  9. Thanks for the guide. In order to avoid having to install an "unofficial" Magisk module (Gpay SQlite fix) I simply used "props" command (from Magisk Hide Props Config module) to change my phone's signature to that of a Sony Xperia 10 II (Android 10). This instantly allowed SafetyNet to pass and adding cards to GPay.
  10. For me it's 17.1 Currently running 20201214 (I think). Am updating now to 20210118. Thanks
  11. Hi All @EskeRahn, maybe this should be merged within the general LineageOS thread? Where it might get a better visibility. Thanks
  12. I have also been facing focus woes with the camera. Unfortunately didn't have time to test as @Jacob_S did., I only really use the camera when my wife's phone isn't available (battery died or left phone somewhere) and she wants to take pictures. Other than that only the odd document or work things, with some effort I can focus (involves distancing/approaching the phone to the object instead of relying on the camera focusing). Thank you @Jacob_S for the effort. Maybe your observations will help solve this issue!
  13. Being a former Priv user, I had gotten used to spontaneous reboots. Fortunately 17.1 has been rock stable these couple days. Even better than 16.0 (wifi connections are way more stable). Only problem I had is I ran out of battery completely yesterday, and when I plugged it in it started but the screen digitiser was not working i.e. the phone wouldn't register my tapping, swiping etc. I manages to use the keyboard to restart the phone, it started to work again. If anybody need to do this: open the keyboard, push the power button for a couple seconds to bring up the poweroff / restart
  14. I believe this sort of is the norm in the tech industry. Started all the way back with the IBM PC - a "disjointed mess" of ready-made components. Oh what a success it was eh? 😁 Most times companies prefer the fast-to-market path, rather than the "perfect product" path. I'm not one to judge which way is the best, we have examples of both approaches that could be deemed to have failed... Windows Me (time-to-market) and GNU HURD (pefect product) come to mind. The HURD could be ressurected at some point and find a successful path, wheeras Windows Me is already buried and forgotten.
  15. I did it with Magisk. on 16.0 I always flashed addonSU first, then Magisk next. Turns out Magisk has all you need for root.
