Line 1: Line 1:
-===== Samsung Galaxy S7 ===== 
-  * Codename: Project lucky, model SM-G930FD 
-  * Using in Japanese softbank network, needs these APN settings: 
-    * 3G APN: APN name: smile.world, Username: dna1trop, Password: so2t3k3m2a  
-    * 4G (LTE) APN: APN name: jpspir, Username: sirobit, Password: amstkoi, AuthType: PAP 
-  * rooting the Galaxy S7 with Linux 
-    * Samsung shipped 2 new major Android versions, 7 and 8.0 to the device. This seems to be the end, so in early 2019 I started to use LineageOS on the Galaxy S7. 
-    * LineageOS details: 
-      * https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/herolte/install worked for me, with one difference: after flashing the recovery image with 'heimdall flash --RECOVERY ..', the doc asks to reboot into recovery with "Volume Up + Home + Power". At that point, I can just switch off the device with "Volume Down + Home + Power". After turning it on again (pressing "Power"), and then immediately pressing "Volume Up + Home + Power", I was able to proceed. 
-      * I planned to go without any spying, but my dependency on google maps is stronger, so I installed gapps. 
-      * LineageOS 16 (Android 9) image I tried: [[https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s7/development/beta-lineageos-16-0-s7-herolte-t3842465|forum.xda-developers.com]]
