Today I created this topic for the development of a custom ROM based on CM12 for our dear A5 devices (all variants), but I need help to create the ROM, so if anyone is interested in this ROM and that he can help me create it, it would be used for the entire user community of A5 :D

For the moment, good news, we have only a TWRP build for A500F and A500FU (probably other variants) working with Lollipop and KitKat. You can flash directly the .img using Flashify.

-Thanks to @faust93 for the TWRP build :).

• Link of TWRP.img : >
https://www.dropbox.com/s/tgdweclpn25jf6z/TWRP_2.8_SM-A500F-SM-A500FU-LL.img?dl=0

This could really be great especially for those who have not yet received their devices Lollipop like @Dijinn with his A500M :p

Current CM12 ETA:​
-Waiting for helping people.

I'm here for it! And surely willing to help!

I was just about to write a 10 page long message about how it wasn't me but @faust93 who did the twrp but then my battery died XD. Anyways you corrected it, all I did was write some instructions all credit goes to @faust93 for the build. If I only owned this device there would probably be a build by me :p

Hey @CTXz , considering the fact that we own the phone, what if you could help us on the whole process of building it OR you build it yourself and share us the files so we can try them and return to you what happened? ;)

OK, so right now I am still in the learning curve of developing on ROMs. Infact i began not too long ago. However I might give it a try once i feel like i am ready. I am currently at poring CM12.1 on my MK802IV android tv stick, witch is completely out of dev resources making it extra hard. However samsung devices are allot easier because they actually share the LATEST kernels etc.

PS : You might wanna add something to the twrp part. Because @RVR here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/recovery-twrp-galaxy-a7-t3153369 posted a thread with his recovery.


Thanks man, when you start the dev of the ROM? I can help you if you need ;). Thanks a lot man :D

This recovery is for A7 but why you want to add this in first post?

Hi all,
I'm trying to build CM12.1 for A5F and have it almost working except RIL. Incoming/Outgoing calls are working (with custom RILJ) but no incall sound at all.. totally muted.
So it would be cool to get some ideas/advices from experienced ppl regarding this issue.

Not sure about A500FU. It seems that A5F/A5FU is somewhat different devices. I've tried LL kernel sources from A5FU but resulting kernel does not work on A5F.
So I think this ROM neeeds to be modified a little to work with A5FU. Stock kernel/initrd and sec-ril blobs at least..

@faust93 I think I found the solution to sound problem, have you verified your build.prop? change these lines on your build.prop

1. Persist.audio.handset.mic.type=digital replace digital with analog

2. Persist.audio.dualmic.config=endfire -- replace endfire with false

With this I think your CM12 problem can be fixed. Try and tell me if it's work ;)
