Probably AOSP issue. At least it doesn't work in CM11 either. No one really notices though as the culprit (libjni_latinime.so) usually gets overwritten quite quickly by a working version from gapps.

It gets overwritten from what app from gapps? I am missing swipe a bit :)

Notification Sound sometimes doesn't stop in lock screen. I think its not a problem of THIS rom only, but do you know how you can disable the notification sound?

Usually the CM11s camera is very good but i guess its still broken for I9506 (improper resolutions, no scene modes/postprocessing).
A reliable choice would be 'Google Camera' as it comes with predefined hardware profiles/proper resolutions.

Hi,

My data connection is not working w/ this rom, everything else seems to be fine considering as an alpha build...
I'm suspecting baseband, but I couldn't find standalone basedband for this phone on the net...
Is there any possibilty to update baseband w/o instlling any stock rom?
(I can remember, that I;ve found odin/recovery flashaable basebands for my older phone...)

thanks for your work!!

happy new year!!...

have any good camera app?

Camera Kk gives med real good pics..
Having problems with the cell reseption, works good for a while, then it suddenly lose all signals, and wont connect to the mobile network.

And when I check for updates to cm, it only shows cm11 updates, do i have to download it from this page, or can i use cyanogenmod updates on the phone?

I installed the latest kitkat 1 month ago.. i guess i got the newest baseband with that. Afterwards i flashed this rom, and it works. Of course its not perfect yet, but all works most of the time.

I had a reboot when i connected bluetooth to my car. After that reboot, it worked with the car too. I don't know why it rebooted but... its ALPHA :)

If you need, here you can find odin flashable modem for GT-I9506 (XXUCNK1), prepared and tested by me.
It include modem and NON-HLOS bin files. The file is a tar.md5, so is self-checking on odin the checksum.
Use odin v3.07 and select pda option... but if you already used odin, you know!

I'm not responsible for any damage... just to be clear!

    Back. Updated device to cm12.1. Also looks like found root cause of reboots. Should be fixed in cm12.1. At least using for 35 hours without issues. But don't have much time to maintain device further. Will try to keep it in working state, maybe something more (like Doze, livedisplay) if there will be some free time.

    @solk2
    Thanks for your great work :)

    Is there a ks01lte development for CM13 ?
    Or dies smartphone soon

    Will start after reboots will be fixed.

    The good news is the latest bugs might be fixed (at least simtoolkit works again) but that LiveDisplay gives me a hard time. It can't be disabled anymore and it's producing heavy black crush and color banding. Color precision is as low as my old 16bit tft display. It's horrible on low brightness. But that's CM general issue... If anyone wants to update maybe wait 1-2 days. I've seen more people complaining in #Cyanogenmod so i guess they will add a master switch soon.

    @solk2:
    Here is another crashlog from 20150312. It's freezing quite often here lately (probably still the same old bug). Also, there are some graphic glitches now and then.

    Sorry was busy with real life and didn't had time to work on CM. New country, new job.
    I know about graphical glitches. That's problem with EGL. Will update it soon. And will be working on merging Samsung LL sources with cm kernel.
    And this reboot was a complete reboot of device or soft reboot of interface?
    Coz if its soft reboot then I need tombstones and not kmsg as it nothing suspicious there.
    5
    Final build.
    I will push all commits if everything will work fine here.
    In previuos build the real root cause of deadlock is there but minimazied chances of encountering it. So it has cpu boost disabled. The real root cause is in ****ty samsung pieace of code inside of scsi disk driver. This wasn't encountered till thread migration was introduced. This ****ty part is full of races.
