CyanogenMod 13.0 for Samsung Galaxy A5 (SM-A500FU)




Notice:
This ROM is created for Samsung Galaxy Galaxy A5 (SM-A500FU). Obviously it will not work on any other device.

Notice 2:
Uploading my files elsewhere (mirroring) is not appreciated.
If you need to add my files somewhere else, just use the links I have provided.

Disclaimer:

Code:
#include <std/disclaimer.h>
/*
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear
 * war, or the current economic crisis caused by you following these
 * directions. YOU are choosing to make these modificiations, and
 * if you point your finger at me for messing up your device, I will
 * laugh at you.
 */
If you have decided to install this ROM on your device, I [TheWhisp] cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your phone and/or for any other kind of inconveniences you may experience (bricks, late for job due to alarm clock not working etc.).
By installing this ROM, you accept this disclaimer.

What's not working / current issues:

* FM radio volume is broken. Don't adjust the volume when listening to FM - this will result in broken audio and unstable system
* Android Beam is not working (reading/writing NFC tags is working fine) - edit: some people say it's working, but I haven't personally tested this

Works in A500Y
Sorry, I took your zip, modify the installation script and installed in another variant. Your ROM works perfectly in A500Y except the camera does not capture photos. Sorry if that upset you . Apart from the browser downloads do not work, either file browser, and gapps crashed after installation. Anyway, good job, congratulations

I launched as a beta tester of this new rom

First look :

Importants :

1) Battery life is very low (fast unloading)
2) Random reboot
3) Very slow connection to the wireless network

Crash :

1 ) Privacy -> Blocked caller list -> Settings

Others :

1) Unlocking very slow sim card
2) Stop and reboot very slow
3) Files manager does not work
4) Long press on icon of drop down does not display the desired menu


Other things will be added progressively

Most of those issues are due to CM still merging their code and adding their features. So you should not waste your time looking for bugs just yet. I'm well aware of the situation
