FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
  • Currently using Samsung Stock 5.0.2 Rom. Installed CyanogenMod 13 and it boot loops. Stuck on the Samsung logo what to do?
You have to Install Samsung Stock Firmware (Indian). The reason is because the older firmware causes Modem Crash due to which CM boot loops. You can download firmware from following link.

A700FDDDU1BPA2

  • I have heating issues with my device. What is the reason?
On CyanogenMod 13 there are no heating issues. The device does heat if you use your device aggressively, like if you are using WiFi, LTE, 3G, Data Services, Games continuously then it is normal that your device heats up. It is due to the load on the CPU. It will happen in stock too.

Same with Electroflux003. Can't risk my A700FD yet but the frustration is getting real because sammy can't even update it to 5.1.1 unlike others say J7 2015. Seeing someone working on cm 13 for the phone is a godsend. Thanks jackeagle!! ☺

Yes Jackeagle is gonna bring it as you can see.. As he'z working with Testers and doesnt own the device, it will be delayed probably or will take more time.
@jackeagle Thanks a lot for compiling cm13 for Galaxy A7. Much appreciation for your work. Hoping you get more time to work on fixing RIL in this build.
