Thanks for the detailed explanation. AFAIK this vendor blob stuff was one of the reasons why our device doesn't go to mainline LOS, because of those non-PIE blobs?
PIE doesn't mean the code name Android PIE (or Android 9). It means position-independent executable

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Position-independent_code

I learned this from @Stricted when @ananjaser1211 asked this question about this clause (back in Sept 25, 2021)

I'm really sorry for making this sound like some "wen ETA" comment, didn't mean it.
Is there any technical issue that is preventing from our phone to run LOS 18 (Android 11) or LOS 19 (Android 12)?
I've seen many phones being discontinued for some reason for 11 and 12, maybe because of the works being required for the latest trees, I don't know, I'm just curious.
LOS17 might lose security updates soon (or did it already?), and our device can get slowly outdated soon..
Thanks. Much appreciated.
Haven't seen this reply until now i apologize. regarding why we are not on 18 or 19, it mainly comes down to the time i have allocated for this device, as i work on few others i dont find much time to do big projects for it, The galaxy tablet already runs lineage 18 (and i believe it ran 19 aswell) Thanks to @retiredtab massive contributions to the eyxnos5433 open source project.

the second reason i have not done 18 is i am still trying to make 17.1 as stable as possible, especially when it comes to audio and camera which so far been the most difficult on this platform since day one (all the way back in 2016)

eventually however yes i will be updating those devices to Lineage 18 (and then to 19 based on how 18 performs)

Official status is very complicated https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/exynos-unofficial-lineageos-17-1-04-30-2022.3937956/post-85688849 This list still applies today, the part about non-pie blobs was clarified by the lineage team so that atleast can be scratched off.

i think the biggest issue is just the overall instability some users face (Such as https://forum.xda-developers.com/m/bmportillo5.11338563/ or SIM related instability) and the worst one is the camera, without a working native camera this phone has no shot at being official and so far its sad to say that we are no where near understanding the issue to even be able to solve it. there are people much smarter than me working on this subject (exynos5420 team) and sadly we are coming empty handed so far

if/when however this issue is resolved, that will be enough motivation to scratch everything on that list i believe

Legacy devices like ours will likely NEVER be 19.1 official. See

https://lineageos.org/Changelog-26/

Let’s talk about legacy devices…​


If the Samsung Galaxy S5, where Kevin Haggerty is the maintainer and developer, can't be 19.1 official, there's NO WAY ours can be.
19.1 Official is out of the question indeed, i figured 18 might be possible however (assuming we get everything done before 18 is no longer in the official build roaster

19.1 as they mentioned includes ebpf which i know took a ton of work to get right even on devices with linux 4.4. i am sure we will see backports to 3.18 or 3.10 as there still a big dedicated developer base for it (on the snapdragon side) but probably takes more effort than its worth i guess

I suspect 18.1 will be deprecated from official status, if history is a guide, sometime 2nd quarter 2023 (April - June). I'm hoping when that happens, someone will continue backporting the security patches as 18.1 is the "last" official build for many legacy devices.

I own a few legacy phones, apq8064 , msm8974, msm8937, ...
Android 11 / LOS18.1 seems like the last for most of us. My MSM8974 has stopped receiving official LineageOS now and the developer discontinued work on it.
Similar to unlegacy android, maybe we should make a version of LineageOS based in 18.1 and merge security patches, until these devices are all gone. There's still large people using these phones on LOS. App supports wouldn't be much of an issue, as 5.0 can even still work, we have plenty of time that 11 works.

Ok, new problem: i come home and my mother said she texted me sms and i did not recive it, i restarted my phone and then all messages comes, and i got some missing calls... i don't know what happened, this is first time happening... i remmeber old problem with sms delay on LOS16 i fixed with terminal command "adb shell dumpsys deviceidle whitelist +com.android.messaging" but this now even calls i did not receive... i guess it has to do something with phone goes to sleep maybe some "battery optimization" or something and i notice even music app is sometimes choppy when screen is off... i will try put battery settings on performance to see if problems goes away...

Edit: ok i have some app called "brevent" i use that app for years to limit app working in background to save battery i will try to remove it maybe that app cause it...

Yeah same the first problem.
About problem 2, well note 4 is too old and the battery capacity is only around 3000mah so not much we can do to fix it.

Hi Anan, first of all, i would like to thank you for doing god's work and making these ROMs, i really like both the N7 port and this one, but i have a question about this one. Can you give us instructions on force enabling the gyro service from google VR services? Since Google VR Services doesn't have a shortcut, where am i gonna do that from?

I'm still using this like a modern day PDA along with my old cellphone. Recently I'm not receiving SNS messages from Telegram FOSS and Matrix (Element), not sure what's being wrong, the battery's also draining weirdly. (Don't think this is a rom issue though)
I should probably pop in my primary sim and try using this with cellular data and see if it happens again.
Cheers.

All the old builds can be found here https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=295265

i will add the link to the download section
Hi

Thanks for the files. I installed the one below, but it wont let me pass the lock screen, I am locked out basically :( I keep entering my passcode, the screen goes dark and it goes back to the lock screen. Is this a known issue?

The safe mode reboot does have the same issue too.

I went back to 0421 release and problem went away.

    In all honesty i am not sure, the LTE bands should be exposed, but i am not 100% sure as we do set tre3gxx at the init binary, which overrides whatever value is set in build.prop

    i know some countries had bands that work with N910H modem, which does support LTE at limited bands, but i dont know enough about this topic to advise. it will create issues moving forward as countries are phasing out 3G, i just dont know how we can tackle this.


    We set N910H to only use 3G via

    telephony.lteOnGsmDevice=0
    ro.telephony.default_network=0

    as a workaround to a bug in lineage that uses LTE by default on H, it does not really work as expected (hence why people manually disable LTE and switch to 3G APNs)

    i dont think this will interfere with attempts to enable LTE as per arya's guide.
    I have tried arya's method. After copying the file on the twrp recovery, then rebooting the phone. There's forbidden sign, any attempt to open the mobile network settings will shows up a message that says, "Insert SIM card. Insert SIM card to access network services."

    There's just blank white on *#0011# and *#2263# menus.
    Turning off and on airplane mode didn't work.
    *#0011# back once then key input Q021233 didn't work.
    *#0011# back once then key input Q0212633 didn't work.
    There's no "CP : TEST1" on the *#1234# menu.

    I need this to work. No 3G anymore in my country. And I guess my SIM card operates with LTE band 3. Is there any workaround that you can help me?

    [UPDATE]

    By flashing N910C Custom ROM and then set the band in 2263 RIL service mode I was able to enable my 4G for my provider with LTE Band 1 or 8. (Band 3 is not working)

    Goodbye obsolete N910H 3G ROM. I'm so happy. Haha.

    I haven't tried other Custom ROMs that based on N910C or even the stock version itself of N910C.

    My Custom ROM is Hani Base v1.01 here:

    0. Backup your important data.
    1. Enter TWRP Recovery mode. Install the latest version with Odin if you haven't.
    2. Wipe Dalvik, System, Data, and Cache.
    3. Backup Modem and EFS. (Very Important)
    4. Install the Custom ROM.
    5. Restore the Modem and EFS.
    6. Reboot to system Mode.
    7. Do usual initial setup, then turn on airplane mode to avoid Band 3 invalid SIM forbidden sign.
    8. The Secret Code (MMI code) of *#2263# is blocked with this ROM, so use 'Phone Info SAM v3.8.5' to bypass it with its root launch 0. I don't know any other apps that could bypass that. Put the APK in your storage so you can install it easily.
    9. Done.

    There will be 'KERNEL IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING' message in red text every time you boot. In other to solve this, you need to install the latest SuperSU 2.82 using TWRP. Here is the official thread of it
    From reading the last pages of there, we'll get the official site to download: SR5-SuperSU-v2.82-SR5-20171001224502.zip

    You could change between band 1, 5, and band 8 in real time with the 2263 code above within the service menu as long as you avoid band 3.

    For my provider in my current location, Band 5 is not available. So I could either use Band 1 or Band 8. As for my speed, Band 1 is much faster than Band 8.

    Have fun.

    Thanks @ananjaser1211 and everyone for the support.
    And I also hope for the best for the future of this Lineage OS ROM to fully support 4G band selection.

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


    --> Personal Notes <--
    20220430 Release notes :
    This is more or less a minor release, You can dirty flash it, Main key points is fixing encryption and few other minor things.
    Ive also included VR Support which enables Gyro sensor in VR, however it is VERY funky and you need to force enable the Gyro service in Google VR Services

    RR builds are compiled and will be released along side this, with the same changelog as 17.1 however ive also compiled FaceUnlock packages and enabled SystemInfo overlay

    I have also moved to releasing everything on sourceForge, and ive made Bootloader / modem update packages for those who need it, Head over to WiKi for instructions

    20220421 Release notes :

    Hey everyone! Glad to be back again for another release, This one has been in development for couple months now, and comes with massive upgrades and improvements, the most major is a full transition into Exynos7420 Oreo graphics drivers, which modernizes our device graphics stack significantly, and finally allows us to use proper OMX media codecs which solves many issues including the dreaded low quality playback! (You no longer need to flash FakeDeviceInfo)
    Further more the new GPU driver significantly boosts performance in games and UI which is always a welcome (including fixing graphical glitches in games)

    Other major fixes include full encryption support, Please refer to Updated TWRP to perform first time encryption setup, i must warn however, Encryption might interfere with future rom flashes, so only use it if you can keep your data backed up, as it will fully deny you access to it from TWRP.

    This release also includes fixes for the random reboots, and Audio leakage, sadly this does not address the tiny microphone quality, so that remains an issue, Please refer to bugs for an uptodate bug list and instructions on how to easily report new issues

    Big thanks to @Fuadmoin , @ISoreo and @TrisTanster for a ton of help with testing

    old release notes

    20210630:

    Builds for all variants have been updated, this release has been a WIP since April, ive done quite alot of changes for memory management, and added zRAM with LZ4 compression, to significantly improve our RAM situation.

    Ive also fixed a broken sdfat driver that caused random reboots, and over all did a clean up of the kernel, removed old commits, updated some drivers, and more importantly, ive removed "ALL" custom GPU modifications, as they cause graphical issues in most games, and overheating, this means there no longer is an option to overclock/undervolt GPU. for now atleast.

    finally, ive added a binary to help with N910H devices, which now allows them the option to go to settings > mobile networks > and pick 3G (full guide in F.A.Q) to fix SIM issues

    Change-log wise this is a "small" update, but it hopefully addresses various stability problems, i have not done much work in audio tho, nothing ready for release, but i will be looking into that moving further.

    03/08/2021
    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

    03/05/2021
    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

    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 : How to use Encryption ?
    A : First, head over to TWRP Thread And follow the notes for First time encryption setup (this involves formatting internal storage while using that twrp, This is mandatory as previous twrps did not create proper partition state for encryption), Then head over to settings > security > encryption > Encrypt Phone, the phone will reboot once or twice
    Warning : Encryption will prevent TWRP from reading your internal storage at all, And encryption is very sensitive, any untested customization or mods might brick the ROM, and putting your data at risk, only use if required

    UPDATE : You will bootloop if you did not set PIN/lockscreen in setup wizard before encrypting


    Q : How to Tune for Performance or battery life ?
    A : Latest release offers proper Power profiles which can be adjusted in Settings > Battery > EnergySaver and Performance. The slider will adjust MAX CPU frequency as follows,

    Power saving Big: 1.4GHz Little: 1.0GHz
    Balanced: Big: 1.7GHz Little: 1.3GHz
    Performance: Big: 1.9GHz Little: 1.4GHz


    Q: N910H wont detect SIM / network
    A: This is due to it trying to force LTE, Go to settings > network > mobile networks And change preferred network type to 3G, then enable and disable Airplane Mode. Here is a Video by @mvrul2k20 to explain the procedure

    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 (Recommended version 23.0 for better MagiskHide)

    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)

    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
