Announcement from minz1: Oreo for the J7 is here!

LineageOS is an AOSP based 8.x.x ROM, with contributions from members of the Android community.

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am 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
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 *
*/
Bugs:
RIL
Wi-Fi
NFC
Camera
USB

What works:
Boots
On-Screen Navigation Bar

DISCLAIMER:
Lineage 15.0 is in no way, shape, or form, stable. Lineage 14.1 is mostly stable. If you want to use bleeding edge builds, flash 15.0. If you're looking for stability, flash 14.1. If you end up deciding to flash Lineage-15.0, updating TWRP is required.

Installation Instructions:
First off, make sure you are running the latest official TWRP. It will be continually updated with support for this ROM's features.
Secondly, ensure at the very least, you are on the MM update. If you are not, then flash the stock ROM via Odin, and perform a system update.
Thirdly, this ROM is ONLY for the SM-J700P, also known as j7ltespr, or the J7 2015 Snapdragon.
  1. Perform a factory reset in TWRP
  2. Select advanced settings under 'Wipe', and wipe 'System'
  3. Flash the LineageOS 15.0/14.1 ROM
  4. Install any other modifications (MindTheGapps (ARM), and/or Lineage SU)
  5. Wipe Dalvik & Cache
  6. Reboot and wait

Why did you run Lineage OS only for a variant of J7 2015? If this ROM does not work on other variants such as J700M and J700F, please put a warning, this will save several J7 bootloops

Well it says the damn model number of our version and you guys have a thread for your phone. No need of warning, just look.

Does this really work? Just so I'm correct, this is for the SM-j700p, I'm using that on boost mobile. I have that same j7 update so I will go ahead if this is real and try it out.


edit**

also how can I find out if I'm using your version of TWRP? I'm pretty sure I might be, but how can I know for sure?

& could you advise which GAPS to download?

In the post title, it says "J700P". I'll make it even more clear in order to prevent this.

This build here "works", but soon, after I get all of these bug squashed, there is going to be a build with everything working. And yes, this is for the J700P. I'm not entirely sure how you can tell if you're using my TWRP. If you aren't sure, reflash my TWRP.

any idea of the hugs involved? Could you create a rough list of bugs you have noticed. Also if you don't mind, do you know where I can get the stock room/other files so I can revert back to default. This is my main phone so I need to make sure I have what I need to make it operable again, just in case it becomes inoperable.

*Edit* also if you wouldnt mind showing me how to use logcat and whatever else I will need to properly test and help isolate things.

Just make a backup on twrp and save it to your pc if possible.
