On 2018-08-19_2149 version,
bluetooth connection
--- to big jambox - ok
--- to plantronics legend - media plays ok, recorder - ok (records thru headset and plays the recording back)
<bluetooth works> when not making phone calls
--- making phone calls when connected, creates loud static noise as if transmit and receive is reversed creating speaker feedback.

I do appreciate all the hard work you are putting into this ROM for older model.
Thanks,

New Builds Coming Soon

Hey guys, I am still digging on this bt call audio issue. I swear, this bt bug has become my unicorn, lol. I have found some changes on LOS's gerrit that look promising. They mostly deal with the audio processing in the hardware_samsung project, which hltex uses. Some of the commits are a pre- and post-processing rewrite, a removal of some unneeded bt_sco_profiles, removal of the out stream resampler, and a few others. I also went ahead and pulled in the commit that @macs18max used to fix bt call audio in the S6 and A3, even though Kevin Haggerty says it is NOT needed for hltex. The builds are running now, I should have them uploaded for testing in a few hours.

[EDIT]Guys, I have also added a commit to enable Always On Display feature for all hltex variants[/EDIT]

New builds delayed

Alright guys, I know I said I was going to get some new builds up, but I may have to push them off until tomorrow. The extra feature I added, Always On Display, is working great. Except that it makes turning the screen back on kind of like a game of Russian Roulette, lol. I think it is the screen blanking option of AOD that is causing the issue, but I am going to have to take a bit of time to test it out and make sure it works properly. If I can't get AOD working by tomorrow morning, I will just run a set of builds without AOD, and mess with that later.

Shane,

Your patience and steadfastness continue to inspire me in my projects at work. No need to apologize for 'delays' or having your real life get in the way of things. Without sounding too much like a fanboy I just wanted to encourage you to pace yourself. Although I switched to your Nougat version (which is super duper stable and continues to make my phone the envy of many a iPhone user) I keep tabs on the Oreo builds to see if the elusive BT bug has been caught.

Nougat was a win! Oreo and/or Pie are just gravy on the proverbial turkey.

Thank you so much for your time and dedication and I know I speak for many of the XDA followers that we all owe you a debt of gratitude.

Dave

New AOKP Oreo Build

Hey guys, I FINALLY got a chance to get new builds up. These have the potential bluetooth bug fixes I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. They do NOT have Always on Display support. I tried to add that, and it works, except it makes the device difficult to wake up. :/ I tried a few different fixes for the issue and couldn't figure it out. These builds also have the latest upstream changes from AOKP and LOS, except for an update to the build fingerprint that I didn't find the commit for until I had started the builds. Please test these builds out and let me know if there is any change or improvement to the bluetooth bug.

Hi
I currently have an issue where I'm unable to send messages but I'm able to receive them. I've read articles online stating that it's an SMSC issue, in which case I'm planning to resolve said issue with the service provider. But I'd also like to know whether it's possible that it's an issue with the ROM as it was previously working on my previous ROM ( stock ). Just want to cover all my bases.
Thanks.

Yes I had updated my modem(nordic one since it seems it works best) and baseband before installing the custom ROM. I mean my data's working, I can receive and make calls and Mobile data too works fine.
As for the APN, i thought that issues like no data access pertain to a wrongly set APN.

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you. I am at wits end on this bluetooth bug. My guess as to what is going on is that it is due to us using old proprietary blobs. Unfortunately, those blobs are all we have. Samsung will not release the code to let us compile them ourselves, and they are not going to release updated versions of them. This device is too old. Even in the LOS 16.0 unofficial thread, the BT bug is listed under known issues, and lists it as a "Bug since Oreo". I am not saying that it is impossible to fix, I am just saying it may not happen, unfortunately. On another, but related, topic, I am working on Pie bring up. Once I have something ready for release, I will start a new thread for it. Beyond that, lets keep Pie out of this thread, as asked by the moderator above. Thanks for all of the testing you guys have done!

    Glad to know that I am not the only one pulling my hair out with this damned bug. Like I said before, it has to be something in the BT blobs. I hate proprietary software! I have dug through several bt snoop logs submitted by different users, and I can't find anything that is specifically causing it. And my own troubleshooting is very limited, as my Note 3 is no longer in active use, or having active service, so I can't even test bt calls.

      These are beta builds!!! Stuff may be broken/missing/jank!!! You have been warned. Again.

      Code:
      *** Disclaimer***
      Your warranty is now void!
      I am not responsible for damages caused by this ROM
      YOU are choosing to install it!
      If you have any concerns about potential issues or features with this ROM, do your research!
      If you accuse me of causing problems with your device, you WILL be ridiculed!

      • More features coming soon! (P.S. Asking for ETA's is bad, unless you like NOT getting new features! ;) )

      Known Issues
      • Bluetooth does not work with some devices - This is a known issue that also affects LineageOS-15.1 Fixed?
      • You tell me! I have limited testing time, so the more reports I get the better. Please see below for proper issue reporting!

      Proper Issue Reporting
      • Make sure you are seeing the issue on a CLEAN install! If the problem pops up after a dirty flash, wipe data/factory reset and see if it still happens before reporting it
      • Make sure you have not flashed anything extra, such as 3rd party kernels, SuperSU, Magisk, Xposed, etc. These extra packages can cause their own issues. As above, try a full wipe and then only flash the ROM package and Gapps package, and see if the issue persists before reporting
      • In your report please include the following:
        • Issue you are seeing, and how to recreate it
        • Logcat/kmesg from right after the issue if possible
        • Build date of ROM you are running
        • Gapps package you have installed

      Installation instructions
      • Backup your data! (nandroid, TiBu, etc.)
      • Wipe Data/Factory Reset (You did backup, right?)
      • Flash ROM
      • Flash GAPPS
      • Wipe Cache/Dalvik Cache
      • Reboot

      New AOKP Oreo Build

      Hey guys, I was FINALLY able to get a build completed and uploaded! There are no huge changes in these builds, other than the requiste base updates pushed by AOSP/LOS/AOKP. The only changes of note are moving the VENDOR_SECURITY_PATCH_LEVEL definition to the common tree (shouldn't change anything, just makes life easier IF we ever have a vendor update (we won't lol)) and removing the CarrierConfigs from hlte/hltetmo trees. CarrierConfigs was duplicated into msm8974-common (one of the common device trees shared by this device and other Samsung devices built from the same SoC platform). This MAY help with the com.android.phone crash for Sprint (SM-N900P) users, though I am not positive, as I don't have a Sprint device to test on. In addition to CarrierConfigs being moved, it appears as though some changes were made to CarrierConfigs that may also help, though I have no control over those changes, as msm8974-common is pulled as-is from LOS source, so they have control of it. In any case, please test this build and let me know what you find. Especially you owners of Sprint devices! And, as always, thanks for being my guinea pigs!

      New AOKP Oreo Build

      Hey guys, I just pushed a new set of builds. The new builds have some updates from LOS upstream, and from AOKP. Some of the highlights are update to the latest 8.1 r46 base, adding SystemProfile Tiles to the QS tiles, and some fixes to the way QS tiles are handled. One change that I made was a minor fix in the bluetooth_vnd.txt file. It is a small thing, but it could fix the bluetooth issues. Sometimes it's all in the details. So please test this build, especially bluetooth performance. I know that audio playback via bluetooth works, but I have no way to test phone call audio. As always, a full changelog between this build and the 08/19 build is available on the download page, and thanks for testing!

      Hey guys, just wanted to touch base with you all. I haven't forgotten the Note 3. I have just been super swamped at work, and taking vacation with the family. This weekend I am going to at least try to get a new build up, and see if I can dig in to some of these on going issues like the Bluetooth, random black screen with time in a blue box, the crashes on Sprint, and the button backlights. I do have to work an extra day this weekend, so I may not get much done, but I am trying to get back to doing weekly or bi-weekly builds.

      I also have a question for everyone. How would you guys feel about me removing the sound boost from a couple of builds back and offering it as an add-on for those who need/want it? I have seen several reports of the volume being distorted since that volume boost went live.

      New AOKP Oreo Build

      Hey guys, the new builds are up! Download links are in the OP. The big change in this build is, of course, the potential bt bug fix. So those of you seeing the bt issue, please test and let me know how it goes!
