Thread cleaned , again.

May I remind everyone that this is a Development Thread

Topics of discussion should be related to the Development of this ROM.

ALL other discussion is neither necessary or wanted. (Especially ETA's)
Most of the questions are answered in the first post

Please let the Developers do their work.

I am sure that when something is good and ready for release , they will let you know.

Thank you

Hey and thank you for trying to help, but developers have to port Kernel, RIL and other sensors to get this working with CyanogenMod 13. CyanogenMod needs different drivers and files than stock Android. It's always hard to port AOSP or Custom ROMs, which are CyanogenMod based for devices with Exynos chips. If you look around for Exynos devices, you will see no one of them have an AOSP ROM.

So. We should wait :) But thanks for trying yo help ;)

Are there any chances that cm will fully work on s6 one day?:(

if we put the time in realtion it took to get the first booting build and compare it to other older exynos devices the answer is no. it will allways lack in terms of function. and there will never be any official nightly. And in some point it will no longer be demanded at some point in the future as newer devices will take the lead. and i knew qualcomn s7 would come with locked bootloader. srsly what did they expect.

If there is any news it will be here, but don't expect it soon, or frequently. That is just the nature of the beast.

Yeah I know. I can wait forever. Since first post is not updated with new updates, It's being harder to keep up with thread. Bunch of nonsense posts etc. Just wanted to know if there are anywhere to follow latest releases.

    /* FAQ */

    Q : Is this suitable for a daily driver?
    A : No.

    Q : How can I multi-boot?
    A : It’s only intended for developers. Don’t ask. Please. It’s more complicated than you could possibly imagine.

    Q : Which recovery should I use?
    A : TWRP or PhilZ Touch recovery will work.
    TWRP -
    PhilZ -

    Q : Which Gapps should I use?
    A : It’s not even worth it yet to install Gapps. However, OpenGapps is recommended.

    Q : I’m confused, microphone is listed working but call doesn’t?
    A : Stuffs like audio recording works. However, during call, microphone is inactive. So the person at the other end cannot hear you. This will be fixed in the near future.

    With 2D graphics, there are noticeable framedrops and tearing.
    Sorry for my absence lately, my daughter was born last week (#3 :) ) and am on paternity leave currently. Will be addressing incoming calls soon, I have tracked down the issue, just need to determine what is causing it.

    Graphics improved
    Deep-sleep fixed
    In-call audio(mic) fixed
    Sensors fixed
    Network type switching fixed
    Initial release
    Time for a status update. I've decided to try an oss camera hal based on current odroid 5422 sources.

    Last weeks I've been getting working all oss libs which cam depends on. Csc sw won't work due to lack of asm 64 sources.

    Built camera hal and added necessary sensor info. Camera hal do load. There's no preview. V4l2 nodes are wrong. I hope to be able to guess them right.
