Announcement from kyasu: [ROM][SM-G850W][sltecan] LineageOS 14.1 UNOFFICIAL for the Galaxy Alpha (S801)
LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.x (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM

 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.

 */
This is an unofficial LineageOS 14.1 build for the SM-G850W which is a Snapdragon variant of Galaxy Alpha and has an unlocked bootloader.
This ROM does not work with Exynos variant (SM-G850F) nor a locked bootloader (SM-G850A).

Instructions
  1. Make sure that your SM-G850W has the Lollipop bootloader and modem (The last installed stock ROM must be 5.0.2).
  2. Flash TWRP recovery via Odin.
    1. Use Odin without 'Auto Reboot' option.
    2. After flashing TWRP via Odin, reboot to TWRP recovery (Vol UP + Home + Power). Don't reboot to the stock image which restores the stock recovery.
  3. Boot to TWRP recovery (Vol UP + Home + Power).
  4. Optional: Do nandroid backup
  5. Wipe data / Factory Reset
  6. Install the ROM (CM zip).
  7. Install the Google Apps (Open GApps).
Enjoy!

Thanks a lot for your new rom. But, when will be available the rom for F and M versions? I'm pretty enthusiast about this

kyasu seems to only work on the Snapdragon variant. For the exynos, keep an eye on modpunk's work

Coming from the latest version of CM13.1, do we need to do a factory reset? Reinstall Googleapps?

Is anything less stable in this rom, than in the latest version of CM13.1?
What would be the best app, to backup and restore sms?

I've only used it a couple days now but so far all seems well.. As for SMS you could try SMS Backup & Restore

Thanks.
That's the app I use, for backup/ restore, but it takes hours to restore sms's using that app.
