Introduction

LineageOS 17.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10.0, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device. The port for the Exynos7580 based devices was created by @Stricted and I along with many contributions from other people in the Android community.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

What works
Calls, SMS, Mobile Data
Camera
NFC
WiFi
Bluetooth
Torch
Sensors
GPS
SELinux Enforcing
HWC
What doesn't work (official blockers)
IMS services (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc). Samsung has their own proprietary implementation. It is not really possible to easily port that to LineageOS.
WiFi tether (hotspot) not functional fixed in 22/02/2020 release
HD headsets in call not working fixed in 21/01/2020 release
FP scanner has been reported unstable fixed in 22/02/2020 release
NFC HCE (GooglePay etc)
You tell me!
Known Issues
If you are running the latest update and are not able to enroll a fingerprint you may need to clear the fingerprint data using this zip (flashable in TWRP): https://mega.nz/#!6YZV2QTY!hOYYwrbkTPfThUIJUffOEQWMosdCxeqy_7JdGpY p3AA
There are still quite a few features that are not yet completed for LineageOS 17.1, these are not bugs this is a beta release.
Any hardware related issues will be ignored if you do not provide:
a) Logcat
b) proc/last_kmsg
c) data/tombstones
d) dmesg

Also do not under any circumstances post bug reports if you are using substratum themes or unsupported magisk modules or you have performed any system modifications


Installation
Install the latest TWRP (Available Here)
Make a full backup (just in case something goes wrong)
Do a full wipe (Cache, Data, System)
If this is your first time on a LineageOS ROM format data
Download the latest LOS build and transfer it to your phone
Install LOS
If you are installing GApps do it at the same time (preferably in the same install queue)
And finally boot, the first boot can take several minutes as it optimises all the apps
Do NOT install the TWRP app when prompted, this will cause a bootloop
Downloads
Latest releases HERE
OpenGapps HERE
TWRP is availableHERE
Magisk is available HERE
Thanks

Great work and thanks @danwood76 for bringing 'Q' to A5

Any one wanting to use MicroG with this rom and unable to patch the rom for signature spoofing using Nanodroid can flash this, either in magisk or twrp https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid...26312261707139
