hmh, I am sorry to say this but even resurrection remix rom 7.1.2 nougat works much better on the galaxy s6, than lineage os 15 even after patching the lineage os 15 kernel image, when the galaxy s6 then starts with android 8.0.0 oreo, it seems to work fine but after an half of a minute the phone is frozing and You have just a heavy unuseful stone in your hands, i don´t know why but I think, we have still to wait for a release that isn´t frozing your phone. Via TWRP I flashed the well working resurrection remix 7.1.2 nougat back. Maybe a resurrection remix rom 8.0.0 based also on lineage os 15 would work very fine. I hope it will release in the next time. 🙂
