    LineageOS 17.1 for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (N910C/H/U/S/L/K | N915S/L/K | N916S/L/K)


    --> Personal Notes <--
    20210308 Update : I have released N910U builds with full sim support, they are available in the download section Sim calls / Data and SMS were all tested. it should be at the same level of bugs as other models now

    20210305 Release notes :
    Alright i finally have time to release the next set of builds, i have done alot of work again on Audio to make it more stable.
    and other fixes overall for modem / sim. i have used it for the past 3 days with my sim in it, and its alright.
    i have also made a magisk module which you need to flash if you want high quality instagram (and other apps) video playback. all info in F.A.Q

    I still have no idea how N910H will perform, so let me know if it works or not. if sim is buggy, try to manually force 3G APNs
    N910U Now can show baseband info but still will not load or detect simcards. so no progress there.

    We are down to few bugs, i am going to try to tackle some boring tasks in the next releases, like selinux and encryption, i am hoping to get us enforced soon, and maybe encrypted. after that i will probably re-do all our device trees. in case we ever get all the bugs resolved, we might apply to lineage official

    Big thanks to @Fuadmoin and @ISoreo for a ton of help with testing various Audio fixes

    old release notes

    2/17/2021
    This batch of releases should hopefully address the random reboots and sim issues faced by many, i have also did entire audio from scratch, which would be fun to experiment on, i could not test it fully so i am going to expect that some calling scenarios might not work, would love to know about them.

    i would like to also mention that the power management in this build has been re-done and settings > battery > profiles actually do use custom tunable similar to stock ROM, you may override the frequency i set for CPUs via HKTweaks but i personally think its better for over all stability and battery life

    i should also mention that performance in general is miles better than both 16 and 17.1 builds of the past, as i found a big flaw in the kernel

    over-all these set of builds carry a ton of improvements and fixes, and many missing commits that we should have had ages ago.

    Enjoy and do let me know how it goes, to report any issues, follow the guide below on how to capture useful logs

    2020 NOV
    Alright everyone, so i have taken the stable state of our lineage 16.0 trees and decided to just go for 17.1, i have basically observed the same bugs (wifi thing on idle, no video recording in default cam app and encryption) so figured it was worth it to just spend the extra time to upbring 17.1, i have noticed a ton of improvements myself, i dropped certain hacks, and repaired a bunch of stuff in the tree, and fixed some critical 16.0 bugs related to GPS, Wifi and a ton others. I hope you enjoy this release, and please let me know how it goes, i am basically down to 2 or 3 testers at this point as everyone i knew already left this device, and i personally suck at testing, i loaded my phone with gapps micro, nova prime launcher and my general social apps / debugging tools. and so far its solid, There are some additional notes make sure to read below regarding registering fingerprint, as it gets stuck but actually takes in the FP information.

    regarding continuing 16 builds, i dont know honestly, the build server i use is already crowded and building for 5 devices is too much to handle, last 16 build might be the last for a while.

    Hope you enjoy this release!

    Also BIG WARNING : Dualbootpatcher is no longer a thing with 17.1, it wont work ,dont ask me for support. the tool is deprecated


    Lineage 16 release notes :-

    Alright, it took a lot of work and effort, but finally our device is running Android Pie in a state that is considered "usable" by myself and the testers. There is still a lot of room for improvement but for now the current C/H build is good enough. S/L/K and U builds will follow later after the C/H one is tested, and while i get myself a server.

    This project is only possible due to the awesome people who helped me get my foot into AOSP development, which is very different from what I'm used to. In no particular order, our thanks to @Lunarixus , @ripee , @Stricted (especially for commits that fixed RIL) @tripLr , @bonuzzz and many others from various communities who helped indirectly by sharing their device trees on GitHub.

    I will continue to work on Lineage 16.0 and hopefully Lineage 17.0 in the future. I am enjoying AOSP more than TW at the moment.
    Expect other flavors of AOSP Pie to come out. I was going to release Havoc but it seems to have a problem with incall UI when you install gapps, so I'm skipping it for now.


    If you appreciate the effort behind this, don't hesitate to leave a thanks, provide constructive criticism and maybe consider donating some "totally not illegal stuff" over at my paypal

  • F.A.Q And Notes

    Q: N910H wont detect SIM / network
    A: This is due to it trying to force LTE, workaround can be found here , forcing network to 3G will make it work fine for now

    Q : High Quality in instagram stories etc ?
    A : You need to flash FakeDeviceInfo magisk module (which means you need magisk) . when instagram detects our device, it sends low quality video, the patch tricks it into thinking our device is Galaxy tab which plays back max quality\

    Q : Korean variants (S/L/K) have tube / robotic audio in calls
    A : this bug is unfixable for now as those models rely on stock audio hardware effects to fix this issue, but we cant use that and open source H/W does not support them

    Q : How to enable android 10 gestures
    A : First you need to enable navigation bar (this will disable touchkeys) then go to gesture settings and enable full screen gestures

    Q : Recommended camera app to use ?
    A : This Google Camera : Download or Footej2 from the play store

    Q : When registering FP, i dont see progress or vibration
    A : It is fine, keep enrolling your finger, and at the end it will show you pass. this seems to only happen with first enrollment

    Q: Whenever I try flashing any lineage- build, I get the following error in TWRP: Updater process ended with ERROR: 7
    A: Update your TWRP to 3.2.3 or higher available Here or newer

    Q : Device is too warm
    A : After first boot that is common, let the phone finish setting up and cool down

    Q : How to get google apps ?
    A : Go to Opengapps.org . Select ARM > 10 > [your choice] and flash opengapps*.zip after the ROM.zip

    Q : How to get Root ?
    A : Flash Magisk Root From Here

    Q : How to tune the kernel ?
    A : use HKTweaks app from @corsicanu : Github

    Cant thank you enough for your immense work on this abandoned but powerful device.. to others, it was totally unexpected that we would get this rom working in this condition for note 4. The development has been really positive and the rom is in a very usable daily state.
    Glad to be part of the family and seeing this rom from its inception to its release is heart warming.
    Cheers to all..

      Hi. I'll just add this as a warning. After I started using this rom (the latest version), Whatsapp banned my phone number for breaching its terms of usage. I have done absolutely nothing different than just installing it from the play store and talking to my friends/family. There must be something seriously wrong here. Hopefuly i will be able to recover my usage rights.

      it's ok for me, but they are banning ppl discretionary. my fb ac was just banned for "breaching" something too..... dxxx it

      Sorry to here about the bans, thats horrible, i dont know if facebook/whatsapp does any custom rom validation, previously snapchat would do similar things when it detected root / spoofed signature, but not facebook apps, it might be a new policy change ? i am not sure really, i am using whatsapp on a rooted daily driver, however i do have magisk hide enabled (did not explicitly hid the apps tho)

      maybe it is safer to enable magisk hide for facebook apps moving forward.

      hi all, @ananjaser1211,

      anyone using work profile with this rom? recently i installed island but found that there are some problems with the main profile.

      i cloned whatsapp into work profile but after a reboot or 2, the one in main profile didnt launched successfully upon boot by the boot completed broadcast but the one in work profile did started in the background and running properly. i have issued a ps command to see the running processes and it is confirmed that the one in main profile does not start properly. i then read the logs and found that both copies were called and tried to start during boot but for some reasons the whatsapp installed in the main profile failed to start after a few seconds without any error. no fatal error, no crash, nothing, just killed by the activitymanager. they both shared the same log entries except the main one being killed

      note that this only occurs after i installed island, and before that everything is fine. i also tried to install shelter but the same thing occurs. and that it is not affecting whatsapp but other apps too, and also a reinstall of the rom didnt help

      *** as to fix this, i manually send a boot completed broadcast to the WhatsApp's boot completed receiver in order to get it started probably in an init script

      does anyone have the same problem?
      Ill try it out next time im working on the device, had to take a hiatus as i am moving houses, it might be related to sdcardfs in the kernel, which had plenty of issues, ive resolved those last month but did not run builds yet, as i did not fix the random reboots some users face (especially two testers)

      there have been significant changes done to the kernel and the device trees in late april to handle memory leaks, cpufreq issues and sdfat/sdcardfs problems and introducing LZ4 zram driver, i will try island on the new builds, and go from there.

      to be complexly honest i forgot everything ive done in april rush ive had, so i need to go back and read what commits ive done, i think it was mostly GPS fixes and auto detection for 3G/4G models (for N910H support)

      there is some iffy behavior in lineage regarding network bands, it defaults to LTE regardless of device support for some reason, meanwhile resurrections remix Q does not have these issues. i dont know, maybe it is better than i recommend using RR Q builds instead of LOS Q, once those are available, i have it running on my N910C and so far so good.

      will see, i expect to put more work into the device this week once my internet is hooked up to the new apartment.


      how is your N910U doing aside from island ? is the network stable, i did not follow up with the testers about it after fixing it

      Hi, I install LineageOS 17.1 on my N910U, but it's not works for running apps that needs 64 bits OS (like Fortnite). Is this viable? LineageOS 17.1 is a 64 bits OS? I'm not sure. why I'm use 64 bits Checker is 32 bits OS? I hope someone can clarify it. thanks you.
      This is a 32 bit device, so its a 32 bit OS

      hi

      thanks for your reply. just keep your time and setup your new home first

      haha, i can understand that. just a few weeks time i totally forgot what changes i have made before to the rom and kernel, it's normal and dont worry 😁

      regarding the n910u, it's absolutely a beast! no network problem at all. the only thing i observed is the battery but i think it could be my battery's problem and i have ordered a new one already. so lets see

      oh btw, i dono why but some times the settings could not be saved after boot like fast charging. and occasionally some changes i made to other apps were not persisted too. this is weird. but after i restored my rom backup or did a clean install then its fine

      other than that i have no complaint at all

      keep up your good works!

      regards

      Hello , all Samsung's Exynos 5433 ,
      I used this 17.1 but my battery life is nowhere near my oldest Roms .Many Thanks to this Dev for keeping our beloved Note 4 -N910C still alive. I used for years his Refined 3.5 and for 2 weeks am on this unofficial Anan Nugget 7.11 Rom that is beautiful and works flawlessly. I put exposed framework for rooting /v89-sdk 25 arm/ and it introduced some UI crashes and Samsung Experience Home restarts. Not a major issue is one time job every time after you restart your phone as it never happens again after that. Screen sometimes is delayed, blackening when you talk on the phone or slow wake up time trying to unlock the screen. Never figure that but otherwise i didn't notice any major drags or problems as it all working flawlessly. I would love to know if any UI customization's and Sensor Home Back and Resent button settings are avail to Nugget.

      Battery life on this REFINED_NOTE8_7.1_T2 is very good i use exposed Greenify ,PowerNap and Amplify modules. Regrettably the module of FAST DORMANCY is not working on 7.11 Nugget (as it improves somehow the battery life by simply disabling the Fast Dormancy) Battery life is not EXCEPTIONAL like in my old Nemesys Refined v.3.5 but is still very good battery life in normal usage in my case 2 days.

      Anyone knows what is the current state of progress on our N910? For Exynos 5433 is 64 bit CPU so do we have any 64 bit Roms available is it theoretically possible to be done if NOT why if YES what the benefit of that would be of such.

      If anyone is interested on this REFINED_NOTE8_7.1_T2.zip 7.1.1. Unofficial Nugget Rom here's the link.
      This is only for N910C and i flashed it by Recovery 3.3.1.0

      how should i install it? what is the installation method?
      its been a long time i haven't installed new roms on my note 4 and i have forgotten everything about custom roms 🤔
      I did this:
      1). I downloaded Lineage + FakeDeviceInfo(the header says what it is for), OpenGApps(optional, but better than Pico), Magisk, BusyBox(I don't have one from Magisk, but another one, if I need a link), the last TWRP.
      2). I copied everything into one folder on a memory card(say MicroSD/XDA).
      3). First I updated TWRP.
      4). I went to TWRP and selected "Selective cleaning" in the "Wipe" item.
      5). There I left a checkmark everywhere except MicroSD and deleted everything(with a swipe to the right).
      6). I returned to TWRP back(home screen ) and opened the "Installation" item and selected the Lineage firmware there and swipe to the right. After installation, I cleaned Dalvik-Cache and rebooted it into the system.
      7). Then I installed Magisk(I think you can do that). :) I also patched the kernels for Magisk v23(it also works without this, but still I wanted so).) You can not patch.)
      8). After installing Magisk and reopening TWRP in the "Installation" item, I selected GApps and with a swipe to the right + cleaned Dalvik-Cache and rebooted into the system.
      9). So I installed the further through Magisk FakeDeviceInfo and BusyBox.

      LineageOS 17.1 for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (N910C/H/U/S/L/K | N915S/L/K | N916S/L/K)


      --> Personal Notes <--
      20210308 Update : I have released N910U builds with full sim support, they are available in the download section Sim calls / Data and SMS were all tested. it should be at the same level of bugs as other models now

      20210305 Release notes :
      Alright i finally have time to release the next set of builds, i have done alot of work again on Audio to make it more stable.
      and other fixes overall for modem / sim. i have used it for the past 3 days with my sim in it, and its alright.
      i have also made a magisk module which you need to flash if you want high quality instagram (and other apps) video playback. all info in F.A.Q

      I still have no idea how N910H will perform, so let me know if it works or not. if sim is buggy, try to manually force 3G APNs
      N910U Now can show baseband info but still will not load or detect simcards. so no progress there.

      We are down to few bugs, i am going to try to tackle some boring tasks in the next releases, like selinux and encryption, i am hoping to get us enforced soon, and maybe encrypted. after that i will probably re-do all our device trees. in case we ever get all the bugs resolved, we might apply to lineage official

      Big thanks to @Fuadmoin and @ISoreo for a ton of help with testing various Audio fixes

      old release notes

      2/17/2021
      This batch of releases should hopefully address the random reboots and sim issues faced by many, i have also did entire audio from scratch, which would be fun to experiment on, i could not test it fully so i am going to expect that some calling scenarios might not work, would love to know about them.

      i would like to also mention that the power management in this build has been re-done and settings > battery > profiles actually do use custom tunable similar to stock ROM, you may override the frequency i set for CPUs via HKTweaks but i personally think its better for over all stability and battery life

      i should also mention that performance in general is miles better than both 16 and 17.1 builds of the past, as i found a big flaw in the kernel

      over-all these set of builds carry a ton of improvements and fixes, and many missing commits that we should have had ages ago.

      Enjoy and do let me know how it goes, to report any issues, follow the guide below on how to capture useful logs

      2020 NOV
      Alright everyone, so i have taken the stable state of our lineage 16.0 trees and decided to just go for 17.1, i have basically observed the same bugs (wifi thing on idle, no video recording in default cam app and encryption) so figured it was worth it to just spend the extra time to upbring 17.1, i have noticed a ton of improvements myself, i dropped certain hacks, and repaired a bunch of stuff in the tree, and fixed some critical 16.0 bugs related to GPS, Wifi and a ton others. I hope you enjoy this release, and please let me know how it goes, i am basically down to 2 or 3 testers at this point as everyone i knew already left this device, and i personally suck at testing, i loaded my phone with gapps micro, nova prime launcher and my general social apps / debugging tools. and so far its solid, There are some additional notes make sure to read below regarding registering fingerprint, as it gets stuck but actually takes in the FP information.

      regarding continuing 16 builds, i dont know honestly, the build server i use is already crowded and building for 5 devices is too much to handle, last 16 build might be the last for a while.

      Hope you enjoy this release!

      Also BIG WARNING : Dualbootpatcher is no longer a thing with 17.1, it wont work ,dont ask me for support. the tool is deprecated


      Lineage 16 release notes :-

      Alright, it took a lot of work and effort, but finally our device is running Android Pie in a state that is considered "usable" by myself and the testers. There is still a lot of room for improvement but for now the current C/H build is good enough. S/L/K and U builds will follow later after the C/H one is tested, and while i get myself a server.

      This project is only possible due to the awesome people who helped me get my foot into AOSP development, which is very different from what I'm used to. In no particular order, our thanks to @Lunarixus , @ripee , @Stricted (especially for commits that fixed RIL) @tripLr , @bonuzzz and many others from various communities who helped indirectly by sharing their device trees on GitHub.

      I will continue to work on Lineage 16.0 and hopefully Lineage 17.0 in the future. I am enjoying AOSP more than TW at the moment.
      Expect other flavors of AOSP Pie to come out. I was going to release Havoc but it seems to have a problem with incall UI when you install gapps, so I'm skipping it for now.


      If you appreciate the effort behind this, don't hesitate to leave a thanks, provide constructive criticism and maybe consider donating some "totally not illegal stuff" over at my paypal

      F.A.Q And Notes

      Q: N910H wont detect SIM / network
      A: This is due to it trying to force LTE, workaround can be found here , forcing network to 3G will make it work fine for now

      Q : High Quality in instagram stories etc ?
      A : You need to flash FakeDeviceInfo magisk module (which means you need magisk) . when instagram detects our device, it sends low quality video, the patch tricks it into thinking our device is Galaxy tab which plays back max quality\

      Q : Korean variants (S/L/K) have tube / robotic audio in calls
      A : this bug is unfixable for now as those models rely on stock audio hardware effects to fix this issue, but we cant use that and open source H/W does not support them

      Q : How to enable android 10 gestures
      A : First you need to enable navigation bar (this will disable touchkeys) then go to gesture settings and enable full screen gestures

      Q : Recommended camera app to use ?
      A : This Google Camera : Download or Footej2 from the play store

      Q : When registering FP, i dont see progress or vibration
      A : It is fine, keep enrolling your finger, and at the end it will show you pass. this seems to only happen with first enrollment

      Q: Whenever I try flashing any lineage- build, I get the following error in TWRP: Updater process ended with ERROR: 7
      A: Update your TWRP to 3.2.3 or higher available Here or newer

      Q : Device is too warm
      A : After first boot that is common, let the phone finish setting up and cool down

      Q : How to get google apps ?
      A : Go to Opengapps.org . Select ARM > 10 > [your choice] and flash opengapps*.zip after the ROM.zip

      Q : How to get Root ?
      A : Flash Magisk Root From Here

      Q : How to tune the kernel ?
      A : use HKTweaks app from @corsicanu : Github

      LineageOS 16.0 for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (N910C/H)

      --> Personal Notes <--
      Alright, it took alot of work and effort, but finally our device is running Android Pie in a state that is considered "usable" by myself and the testers, There is still alot of room for improvement but for now the current C/H build is good enough. S/L/K and U builds will follow later after the C/H one is tested, and while i get myself a server.
      This project is only possible due to the awesome people who helped me get my foot into AOSP development, which is very different from what im used to, in no particular order, Thanks @Lunarixus , @ripee , @Stricted (especially for commits that fixed RIL) @tripLr , @bonuzzz and many others from various communities who helped indirectly by sharing their device trees on github.

      I will continue to work on Lineage 16.0 and hopefully Lineage 17 in the future. i am enjoying AOSP more than TW at the moment.
      expect other flavors of AOSP Pie to come out, i was going to release Havoc but it seems to have a problem with incallui when you install gapps. so im skipping that for now.​


      if you appreciate the effort behind this, dont hesitate to leave a thanks, provide constructive criticism and maybe consider donating some "totally not illegal stuff" over at my paypal

      --> Quick Notes about this project <--
      • Starting from Lineage 16.0 , we enter Stable stage.
      • only the N910C/H versions are tested by myself
      • And only the C/H versions are available for now
      • Dualboot patcher support is added, install this rom as primary as always.
      • The kernel is fully customizable using HKTweaks by corsicanu : Github

      --> Known Bugs <--
      • AVC Encoder/Decoder is broken, therefore Stock camera app (and possibly some 3rd party cameras) will not record video. Use Footej Camera instead
      • OMX is not that stable in general, expect youtube to hang sometimes at anything above 720P
      • Hardware composer is broken, meaning we will fall back to GPU rendering for layers (possibly more lag and drain)
      39
      Few words to say.

      Our device is beyond capable in the right hands. This is something to look for in the far future when lineage 17 is more stable. obviously its extremely early for Q, as we are the 3rd or 4th Exynos SOC to boot it yet, and for the first time we actually ran lineage before the snapdragon variants. so there is that W

      This is thanks to help directly and indirectly from stricted and lunarixus, great guys both of them.

      Our device wont die on Pie
