LINEAGEOS 14.1


Intro:

There doesn't appear to be any active Lineage OS version for the Galaxy A500FU so I decided to try and build it myself using sources from @DeadSquirrel01. I successfully created the build and now it's up to you lot to report the bugs and for me to find them! Do not expect me to add any new features other than are already available on official Lineage 14.1 devices. Any new updates will likely only bring bug and security fixes.

Installation Instructions:

1) I recommend using TWRP recovery to install LineageOS
2) Make a nandroid backup in case you decide you prefer whatever you were on before
3) Wipe the system, data, cache and dalvik-cache
4) Flash the Lineage zip
5) Flash the GApps zip (Do this right after flashing the Lineage zip)

Downloads:

1) Open Gapps zip (Download the variant of your choice)
2) TWRP
3) Lineage OS

I'm testing it right now. How does it compare to DeadSquirrel's ROM in terms of bugs ?

I've been running it for the last 4 days.
In theory it should have the same bugs that were on DeadSquirrel's ROM as I haven't (yet) modified his source files.
These would include the torch slowness to turn on.
On the first day of using it, the touch screen would occasionally become unresponsive until i locked the phone then turned the screen on again. I haven't faced this issue since.

My build has the latest security patches and a few new features which you can read about from here:
Lineage Changelog
And every changelog since then...

As said in the post, I'd say this release is quite stable and suitable as a daily driver. I haven't faced any crashes whatsoever.

Went ahead and tested this.
No issue found such as the one you described.

I made and received calls from my a500fu running this build, and I also used a different phone to call and receive calls from my phone. Call audio was fine on both ends and no echo.

You can try and see how well this ROM runs on your a500f, no harm in that.

I think most if not all the sources are for a5 in general so this will boot on all a5 variants and may be quite stable.

Great work! @DeadSquirrel01 has also begun working on an Oreo version for this device. Maybe you could also look into that? It's not in a very stable state yet, tough, so it might require quite some work.

Thanks krmax44

If this is what you are referring to:
https://github.com/DeadSquirrel01/li...15_a5_releases
Then I'm sorry to say but @DeadSquirrel01 has stopped developing it and the final release is from february. The reason for this can be found in the commits.

I will release a 15.1 lineage os for this device eventually, however currently I'm trying to sort through some build errors for it.
