I don’t know if you noticed that, on LOS 16.0, I used Magisk 19.3, and it worked well, Magisk 20.x always gave some problems, on LOS 17.1, Magisk 19.3 didn’t work, 20.x was a problem, however, Magisk 22.0 finally fixed all the problems for me, works perfectly on both LOS 16.0 and LOS 17.1
thanks, i did flash again and camera and other problems solved, just i have 1 problem and it is banking apps , even i didn't install magisk and i have fresh lineage rom but still bankings apps says your device is rooted, any solution for this? i used magisk hide before flash fresh rom but couldn't hide root, don't know what to do

it is not enough to just use Magisk hide, some apps require extra configuration, I also faced this. you can test the following:

Uninstall the app, open the Magisk, hide the Magisk from the system in the settings, install the app, select the apps you want to hide, before opening the app the first time, force the stop, clear the cache and clean the storage, then you starts the app.

Many applications, mainly banks, can see root even if you check to hide and block access, requiring a 100% certified android phone. Doing this the app starts to see the phone as vanilla, without modifications, this is usually the most radical attempt to hide the root of the apps, it worked for me, since my bank apps also only worked by doing what I said

Any cell phone that has removed the original system, loses the '' original certificate '', its '' identity '', so to speak, even without Magisk, it will not be seen as vanilla, Magisk is used for both cases, to control root in apps, but also to hide root in others, every phone that has been modified, it is mandatory to have Magisk if you want it to work 100% like the original system

thanks alot , it worked, in magisk i did hide from bank app, android accessibility suite ,carrier services ,google go , google play services, then tried and bankng app started without problem , previously i only hid Google play services and bank app, which caused the bankingapp doesn't start, but now I also hid a few other android and google apps, and it worked.

Привет всем. После звонка звук идет из динамика вместе с наушниками, можно как-то исправить. Спасибо.

Translation: Hello everybody. After the call, the sound comes out of the speaker along with the headphones, you can somehow fix it. Thank you.

Hello good people, i'm new to all this stuff... i have note 4 910c version and i installed in this order lineage-17.1-20210304-UNOFFICIAL-treltexx.zip, open_gapps-arm-10.0-pico-20210507.zip and Magisk-v22.1.zip
problem is most of VR (virtual reallity) apps (google carboard, fulldive VR...) does not detect any of my head movement... view is stuck in one position... any help? i tried "Sensor test" app and sensors seems all works fine in there (accelerometer, gyroscope,compass...)

Edit soo far i notice: when i turn mobile data LTE (H+) only works for 20-30 seconds then it switch to Edge (slow internet), music player does not have search (or am blind), samsung gear vr not included (not working only detects like mouse when i connect phone to gear), s pen same act like mouse, when i go to fingerprint to set up phone restarts (i dont really need but i tested), video camera recording not working in default camera app... and there is no 4k setting... max is fhd.

About the Gear VR settings, I can't answer, because I never used it, maybe it must be because Android is pure, without Samsung's modifications.
About LTE, many had problems and solved it by formatting the phone again.
Video recording operation in the main app has never worked due to the implementation of samsng being proprietary and this will be very difficult to implement in Lineage, the immediate solution is to use the Footej Camera app, the only one that records videos for the time being.
Because it uses software and not hardware, the Footej app also records only up to FHD. Future updates will try to fix all of these problems

A future correction would be to improve the audio drivers, On my phone, I did not have any problems of leakage of bluetooth audio to the speaker, but the sound problem still gives a loud burst as soon as it puts some audio for thousands of seconds, both by the wired headset, as by bluetooth. In LOS 16, this occurred very rarely, and the burst was much lower

Thank you agtherluyd for your respone...
i don't care about official samsung gear vr apps anymore i heard facebook destroyed it for old devices, but why vr apps from google store don't detect any of my movements while on stock rom works normally and i tried lieange os 16 last night its the same for example when you launch cardboard app view its stuck in one postion, while lineage os 16 on my samsung galaxy S4 same google vr apps works normally tracking every movement...

Hello everyone, I did a battery of tests with LOS 17.1, I think it is important to write also, besides what doesn't work, also write what works too, since it helps Ananjaser to have a better priority in the roms and thus save time. I did a new format, with gapps pico and magisk 22, to get a better idea of how previous bugs behave, and to notice what is stable, that is, the same thing in this format and the old one. Remembering that my phone is N910C.

*About Audio, testing with the same common earphone, and bluetooth earphone, I had a different behavior, in the previous format, there were still some audio bursts when I started some audio in both headphones, either on youtube, spotify or call, in the second format, those pops disappeared unbelievably, and I even forced the system, pausing a song directly and alternating repeatedly, there was no overflow. Only the configuration of the AudioFX is lost, however, another pause returns.

*About the reboots, in the first formatting, I did not experience this fact, however in the current formatting, it only restarts when it is below 20% and even then, only when it is in use, it stopped does not reboot, there were some people who reported that they were restarting independently of the battery percentage, mine only occurred on low battery (in energy saving mode).

*Mobile data works correctly, both on 3G and LTE, without any problem, behaving like any smartphone, I had no problems with app calls, both with or without bluetooth.

*The phone heats up a little more than in LOS 16 (Andorid 9), however, little, and the battery consumption is a little higher, which is expected, the performance is improved in LOS 17.1 due to kernel optimizations, it is more responsive. I experimented with games, videos and calls, I felt that the phone was faster in general tasks.

I had no major problems in relation to LOS 16, comparing to previous builds of LOS 17.1, this is the best without a doubt, for those who used the last build of LOS 16.0, I think you can now switch to 17.1, since the biggest serious problems have already been resolved for basic use, I think we are getting close to the stable version. As anan is busy, being the last visit to the forum on April 21, and this build is more than 2 months old, if he is not sick, or something serious, if he comes back, we will have great news in the builds.

I also got to test the builds of the user '' ripee '', he usually takes a stable build and makes his own updates, besides doing a preview of Havoc OS and Ressurection Remix based on the LineageOs ROMs that anan does, for whoever wants the link, is here, has for almost all
Samsung models. Without forgetting to mention that they are test ROMs, that is, no guarantee of stable operation, test at your own risk, although nothing else are modified versions of those that already existed here.


I tested the LineageOS 17.1 version (04.15.2021) and the RR version (05.01.2021), in the treltexx version (N910C), and both are practically the same as the ananjaser version, however the chip was not detected in either ROM apart from that, the behavior is practically the same, indicating that we are getting closer and closer to total stability.

I have a question. I have a 910c.
The screen mirroring, with a Mirascreen, does not work.
It is connected to a smartv, Samsung which does not have Mirroring.
The mirascreen device is connected to the TV with HDMI and Usb.
With the stock rom it worked.
I reset the Mirascreen device, I detect with the cell phone the mirascreen network to configure it. I configure it correctly.
I press the connection icon in the rom, and it stays there. It does not detect anything.
Mirascreen works correctly, it detects the connection between the cell phone and it, between the Mirascreen and the modem.
I install Samsung View, and it doesn't connect either.
Is there any solution?

Thx

If you want extreme stability, use it for basic purposes, or cannot format it, I recommend LineageOS 16.0 (11/01/2020), it is the last stable build with Android 9, it works very well, and despite being an older android , it perfectly supports all bank apps.
If you want the latest version of android, want the latest news, and are willing to format your phone with each new build, I recommend the latest version of LineageOS 17.1, already has Android 10, which is still super current, in addition to having several improvements in relation to LOS 16, how to be faster in general, in addition to some old bugs to be improved, in addition to being updated whenever possible by anan here on the topic.
In both roms, you can find some bugs, both have the problem of not being able to shoot with the standard camera app, having to use the excellent Footej (HDR function active in LOS 17.1), the audio is better in LOS 17.1 in what refers to bluetooth headphones, also in 17.1, the phone works faster and more fluidly, due to a kernel alternation that did not exist in previous versions , more functions to customize, in short, you decide which is the best use.
I recommend using LOS 16.0 if it is your only cell phone and you do not have much time or patience in case a bug appears, if you want new functions and enjoy all the speed of the phone, go to LOS 17.1
Hi, sounds good. Would you happen to know off the top of your head where I can find the latest stable build of 16?

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

    The Mobile network signal has indeed changed with 17.1, ive seen some commits to address, but so far they only break the indicator (0 bar always) , ill take a look at it and see if there is a way to fix it. we should not really face this issue since it only occurs on RIL blobs of Pie as far as i remember

    Thanks, i will take a look, i dont have a synology, but could you test PPTP if that is a thing ? a member on our group mentioned that VPN connections (manual ones, not via 3rd party apps) do not work, but i dont know yet what protocol he is using

    edit, i managed to find a free L2TP/IPSEC PSK connection, from vpngate website, with the given credentials it connects, I have tested PPTP with a website named "vpnjantit" and it works,

    so i am not sure what is causing it to fail on your end (and the guy in our group) i will ask for more information on the subject

    hi ananjaser1211

    you may try protonvpn too, it's free and you can switch to a different protocol within the app (should be 2 available), if needed

    btw, i have sent you a pm b4. pls read if you have time and i hope it helps

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


    --> Personal Notes <--
    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.

    F.A.Q

    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 : High Quality in instagram stories etc ?
    A : You need to flash FakeDeviceInfo v2 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 : 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

    Remember guys. It's all up to Anan. He's the one working his ass off doing exynos developement. He knows what he is doing and he will release the build when it's ready. Not a moment sooner. As these things go. Exynos was not supposed to even get nougat. But some miracle strings were pulled.

    Try not to pressure the man. He's doing this all for free.. Maybe send him a coffee/beer. And be patient.. It will be ready when it's ready :)
    There are people wanting the LOS 18.0 (Android 11), however, we are dealing with one of the first devices to have the Exynos as standard, and which at the time was an extremely complicated chip to develop ROMs, unlike the Snapdragons, which were standard in the note line until the 3.
    We are lucky that someone still insists on such a complicated chip and try to develop a ROM, the device is from 2014, and is receiving a system from last year, developed by one person, with all the problems faced, we are still very lucky.
    I'd rather they improve LOS 17.1 before going to 18, since from the 16-17 transition, everything was incompatible and was remade from scratch, we're almost at full stability, a little bit left, oh, many newer devices still haven't received Android 11 neither in official version nor in custom version.
    We have to thank anan for insisting on this device, which must be a lot of work, happy for a new build, eager to test.

    working on a new update to tackle some power issues (currently power profiles are broken, phone is either stuck on power saving or performance modes) and bunch of other enchantments,

    another thing is we finally figured out a fix for the issue were headphone audio might leak into speaker, and other audio related nonsense.

    there are also some GPS improvements, found an issue were we didnt have NTP servers working, that is taken care of now, there is one GPS crash left to fix and then we should be fine

    and finally, wifi direct has been fixed, aka p2p interface, this was causing intense battery drain in some scenarios, this also allows for wifi display to be used, but the feature has been removed from lineage 17.1 so if i can add it back ill keep it in the rom

    i am still trying to figure out a way to improve microphone quality / volume but so far no luck.

    Thank you so much @ananjaser1211 for your hard work

    the USB gadget driver in the kernel was significantly changed to work on oreo and up, so it might be something iffy there, i will have to look at the kernel and check, it is the usb function_fs and gadget drivers. i only use MTP when the device is on, dont think speed is slow (compared to my other usb 2 devices atleast)

    sorry , i mean the original usb driver from stock rom, not yours, it was an old problem that i wanted to know. it was about 20-25% slower. i will check the current speed later tonite

    sorry about that

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


    --> Personal Notes <--
    20210630 Release notes :

    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.

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

    old release notes

    03/08/2021Update : 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: 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 : High Quality in instagram stories etc ?
    A : You need to flash FakeDeviceInfo v2 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

    Lineage OS 16 [ 9-15-2019 ]

    http-i-imgur-com-FEDeu-CH.png


    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
