hi, i decided to flash custom rom to my n910c so i choose this rom (treltexx version) but when i flashed it my mobile data doesnt work at all, same with fingerprint scanner, when i turn on mobile data i have small "x" at the bottom of mobile signal, i tried switching to 3g, 2g, and changing apn settings (resetting too) but still i wasnt able to make mobile data work, i can normally make calls and send sms, any ideas what should i try?

I already fixed it by flashing in odin my stock rom then flashing custom recovery again. after flashing custom recovery i then flashed the LOS and other resources and turned out fine.

    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.

    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


    regards
    Thanks, my bad ive missed it, ill get to it ASAP tmw.

    ill take a look at proton, my guess for now is, something ive done in the past month alleviated the issue, but im not certain yet

    earpiece is lowered to avoid echo in calls. you can try and increase it a bit by editing system/vendor/etc/mixer_paths_0.xml
    and increase the number in lines 436,437,438,439


    <ctl name="HPOUT3 Digital Volume" value="124" />
    <ctl name="HPOUT3L Input 1 Volume" value="32" />
    <ctl name="HPOUT3L Input 3 Volume" value="32" />
    <ctl name="HPOUT3L Input 4 Volume" value="32" />

    to like , 130 , 40 40 40

    if it is near flashing, it is dalvik cache rebuild and other "optimizations" android does, give it some time it should stabilize, i removed GPU overclocking and other stuff as they caused too much heat and issues

    also for now avoid using the battery profile slider in settings > battery as it seems to be buggy, and sets the phone to power saving, working on fixing that so expect a new build in a while

    im not sure what that means, did you switch to 3G mode as per the F.A.Q ?
    hello anan
    Actually, this doesn't affect my daily use, I just noticed the slight increase in battery consumption, but I'll do more tests, maybe with time it will stabilize, since the changes were many, the previous build already considered stable enough for use , even though many had problems, I almost didn't.
    I saw that you launched an RR version of the current build, I intend to use it, I've always liked RR, I like to customize, especially using the screen's pixel reduction mode, as it helps to save a little battery, I think it's unnecessary to use 1440p daily , with a 3220mAh battery, I think it's an unnecessary expense
    I intend to do more tests with LOS and then go to RR, so far without problems, practically the same as the previous build, maybe with less heat in heavy use.
    thanks for your work !

    I endorse the newly built version 20210630, after a few days use,

    1. It never reboot after screen on or after youtube run.
    2. Apparently faster booting, Compare the two same model N910U placed side by side in parallel for comparision.
    3. Lasting longer on battery, by using only facebook and screen off standby. The average hours can be up to 12 hours with 4 hours screen on. Compare to the earlier version which can only last 8 hours with 3 hours screen on.

    If compare to Samsung last 6.0.1 release firmware, which only last around 4-5 hours of use, constantly feel hot on battery cover. Samsunge purposely slow down the newly released firmware to push people buying new phone, according to news if my memory serve me right.

    This is alsmost a commercial production version. If you don't use camera video recording. the open google apps project stock version camera app still freeze if running video recording. However, the option of storage path now shows up and can be changed.
    Also endorsement, initially it seemed that the new version was using more battery, but it seems that consumption is returning to normal. The previous version was already very good for me, I never had serious problems like most here were facing, this version just makes it better.
    About the camera not recording native videos, unfortunately this is a problem made difficult by the Exynos chip of this generation, however I use Footej since the beginning, I got used to it and it has all the functions I need at the moment.
    There is very little left for total stability, the goal is to make LOS 17.1 as stable as possible and then start work on LOS 18

    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

    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

    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
