I don't think this ROM will get an update in the near future because this just is less important since it already is quite stable.

Not really... The camera crashes very often and the 'camera restarter' app creates often a full gui freeze and i have to remove the battery (totally annoying) .

And sometimes the battery drain is enormous: from full to nearly empty (100% to 10%) only in a few hours. It happens over night or similiar times without usage.

And the '2g only'-mode is 'buggy', because i have a good network coverage (symbol in status bar) but i'm not reachable and can't call anyone, it's dailing forever without an error message.
The 2g mode is only working for a few hours after activation or after airplane mode on and off when it fails as described.

Hi, this ROM looks awesome! Just a few things I would like to clarify before I install.
Does SELinux matter? Because it is not working? I'm unsure of what that actually is, also how well does the fingerprint scanner work? Like is it the same as the standard TouchWiz ROM? Thank you :)

I can only say that fingerprint scanner is working better than stock.

SELinux should work just fine with this ROM.
SELinux stands for "security enhanced Linux" Whether it matters is up to the individual user. A quick Google search will give you more info on it, but it is a security feature.

It says "SELinux Status: Disabled" in developer settings.
But the developers of this ROM did mention that the SELinux feature would not be working... Are you aware of any function that SELinux actually has? I'm just curious, thanks :)

Well, there after 3 possible SELinux settings: disabled, permissive and enforcing.
It is a kernel feature, not a ROM feature. I an nearly positive that it is working properly and set to permissive by default.
I'm not going to go into exactly what SELinux is, but again a Google search will give plenty of info. You would want it set to enforcing for the most security. You need some app capable of switching SELinux mode for that.
I personally leave it on permissive.

Thanks for the info! It sounds to me that if it's not an actual feature of the ROM then it isn't much use to me, thank you for the help! :)

Hold the "enter" button. That works with Google keyboard and aosp keyboard (comes by default) I personally use GBoard and it shows up this way.

I know how to view the Emoji's but what I mean is that there must be something wrong with my NotoColourEmoji.ttf file, I have tried to change my Emoji's and I have looked at the permissions and everything is fine? I don't know what is wrong?

I think henny's is mainly trying to improve CM14 with the new marshmallow libraries. I don't think this ROM will get an update in the near future because this just is less important since it already is quite stable.

I also think that the focus is on cm 14 now.

Also, cm site is down. And lineage site is not up yet. So, these days nobody hets updates.

New security patches

Google published 94 security patches today. Is there any chance that someone can build a new image that includes these?

There is a very large chance that CM13 would not have updated to the latest security patches. SlimRom 6 is still running the November security patch. Therefore, someone would have to manually apply all of the patches. This would be a pretty large undertaking. It also, since the patches are geared to AOSP, is very possible that some of the patches would break something in the ROM.

The cm on my i9515 has a December security patch. Which is the newest I think?

My g800f has slim 6, updated this week. It only has a November patch.

Ahh,OK. Thanks. I assumed wrong obviously that with all that was going on with CM that they wouldn't have applied the newer security patches to their sources.

I haven't heard from him in awhile. I think he's really busy. I've said it before, but I will go ahead and d/l the sources and build an update for this. This is assuming that there are no major build problems as I don't want to spend a lot of time on it. I'll try to do it over the weekend.

    CyanogenMod is discontinued.
    This ROM is continued as a LineageOS ROM.

    Check the G800F LineageOS ROM for more info.



    This is a CyanogenMod 13.0 ROM for the Exynos3470 based Samsung Galaxy S5 mini (G800F/G800M/G800Y) by CTXz and hennymcc.

    DO NOT USE IT FOR G800H OR YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE

    Although G800F and G800H share the same name they are not related in terms of hardware due to the different SoCs used (Exynos vs. Snapdragon).
    Hence please do not ask for support or ROMs for the G800H.

    Working features
    • Internal Root
    • Brightness slider
    • Option to use soft keys
    • Additional settings (Buttons menu in settings)
    • HW accelerated GUI
    • Camera (pictures+video: Back+Front)
    • MTP storage
    • Flash Light
    • Bluetooth (A2DP, HFP, HID)
    • IR
    • Lock Screen
    • Sound
    • SMS
    • Initiate and receive calls
    • Wifi
    • Mobile Data
    • USB-OTG (Keyboard, Mouse, USB-Audio, Mass-Storage)
    • NFC
    • Hardware sensors (Orientation, Compass, Proximity, Acceleration, Hall sensor, Step counter)
    • Light sensor (needed for auto-brightness)
    • Pulse sensor (preliminary and very inaccurate. Works with Apps like Kardiograph)
    • SD-Card as internal storage (new Android M feature)
    • GPS
    • Multi-Window support (new experimental CM setting, can be enabled via developer settings)
    • Fingerprint scanner

    Non-working features:
    • SELinux

    Known issues:

    Disclaimer:
    • You flash this image at your own responsibility. I am not responsible for any damage that might be caused by flashing this image (bricked device, lost data, ...)
    • Flashing this kernel image will trigger the KNOX counter, so your warranty will be void.
    • Applications that use KNOX (e.g. "Private Mode") might not work anymore when returning to the stock ROM, as the device is regarded as compromised. Do not flash this ROM if you need those applications.
    • The image is only for Exynos3470 based S5 Mini variants SM-G800F/M/Y.
    • It might be instable, crash your device, drain your battery, or even might damage your smartphone (e.g. if an USB-OTG device drains too much power)
    • Some users reported that their touch-screen stopped working permanently after some weeks of usage. For some user's (two at the moment including me) NFC stopped working permanently. Probably this issues are not related to this ROM as also many stock user's complain about hardware issues (random reboots, black screens, unresponsive touchscreen) but you have been warned.
    • Backup your data before flashing and check if the original firmware is present (e.g. at SamMobile)
    Before you start:
    • Backup your data, like call history, contacts, sms, WhatsApp messages, favourite app settings that are on internal and external sd (by using Titanium Backup or other apps available on PlayStore). At least all internal data will be lost in any case. If you have bad luck you might also loose data from your external sd card.

    Download:
    • Odin3-v3.07 (it is contained in CF-Auto-Root)
    • TWRP 3.0.0 recovery image [25/03/2016] (AndroidFileHost Mirror)
    • The newest CM 13.0 releases as well as the latest TWRP can be found here:
      https://aykevl.nl/android
      -Credit and thanks to @ayke
    • CM 13.0 ROM for G800F/M/Y (Android File Host)
    • Google Apps (contains Google Play, ...) for Android 6.0, one of the following two is recommended:
      • Open GApps Project, Platform:ARM, Android:6.0, Variant: whatever you prefer (e.g. "mini" or "nano")

    Install recovery:
    • Reboot your device into Odin mode: turn off your device, then press Volume-Down + Home + Power button at the same time and release them.
    • Confirm the following warning message with the Volume-Up button.
    • Connect your device to your PC via USB
    • Make sure the device driver's are installed on your PC
    • Start Odin
    • In Odin select PDA and select the recovery image (recovery.tar.md5)
    • Check that only "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" is set
    • Click on "Start": the kernel image should be flashed now and the device should reboot afterwards. By flashing the recovery, your warranty will be void.
    • After the recovery flashing process was successful, power of your device. If not restart into Download mode and flash again or flash the stock rom.

    Before you flash:
    • You need the latest TWRP recovery (see above). Otherwise TWRP might not be able to flash the ROM. This is because TWRP checks now if the device is "supported".
    • Wipe the device to avoid problems with remaining files from the old installation (see instructions below). This also applies if you already installed an older version of CM 13.0.

    Flash CyanogenMod:
    • Reboot into recovery mode (Press Volume-Up + Home + Power button)
    • If you come from a stock ROM, this is your opportunity to make a Backup of your phone(Backup, then select Boot, System, Data, then swipe to backup). Note that the recovery might fail to restore the backup when you want to go back to the stock ROM (for me it got stuck after a restore during boot. But the backup was made with a different version of TWRP, so it might work in general) - simply do not expect too much of it at the moment.
    • If you haven't copied the installation files yet, you can now copy the GApps and CyanogenMod zip to your internal sd or external sd (be careful not to put the files into the data directory of the internal sd card as this will be deleted in the next step). Be sure that MTP is enabled (inside Mounts, click on Enable MTP), then, from your pc, copy the files. If MTP does not work from recovery, try it directly from Android or remove the external sd card from the phone and put it into your PC.
    • Wipe Dalvik Cache, Cache, System and Data (inside Wipe -> Advanced Wipe). Do not report problems if you did not wipe those partitions as the problems are most probably related to this!
    • Install the CM 13.0 ROM zip-package
    • Install the GApps zip-package

    How to root:
    No SuperSu is needed as CyanogenMod already comes with integrated root support. Root access is disabled by default.
    You normally do not need root access. If you want to activate root access for apps, do the following:
    • Open the Settings menu, select "About Phone"
    • Tap on the "Build number" entry seven times. You should be notified, that the developer settings are now active.
    • Open the Settings menu, select "Developer options". Enable root access by selecting "Apps" in the "Root-Access" setting.

    In case you want to go back to the stock ROM:
    • lf you do not have the latest ROM for the G800F you can download it from SamMobile
    • Reboot your phone into Odin mode
    • Open Odin on your PC and connect your smartphone with your PC via USB
    • If you have a zip-file unzip it so that you have a .tar.md5 file
    • In Odin click on the PDA button and select the .tar.md5 file. Then press "Start".
    • Normally the stock rom fails to boot as the data from CM is still on the data partition. So after flashing the stock rom, reboot into recovery mode (it looks a bit different now). First wipe the data partition, then wipe the cache.
    • Reboot

    Developers welcome
    • At the moment the G800F/M/Y specific port of this ROM is only done by two persons (CTXz and hennymcc). Although Unjustified Dev also works on this ROM he does not own an Galaxy S5 Mini but a Galaxy Light which has a similar base but is different when it comes to camera, nfc and other components (maybe even slightly when it comes to audio and radio).
    • Help from other developers is always welcome. See the bug/feature section and this thread to see what is missing. Just give some short info (here in this thread or PM) that you want to work on some issue or feature so that work can be synchronized. Maybe there are also other devs that want to work with you on the same issue.
    • Knowledge in how the kernel works and good programming skills in C, C++ and Java would be nice but not necessary for all problems. At least you should be able to build the ROM and test your changes yourself but you do not need experience in porting ROMs.

    Thanks to CTXz for his awesome work on getting Marshmallow to the G800F

    Thanks to spookcity138 and ayke for providing new builds of this ROM.

    Thanks to Psyafter for some patches and working on the G800F.
    Thanks to Unjustified Dev from Team Regular for the initial work to get the G800F ready with CM.

    Changelog:
    • Fixed lock-screen freeze

    Changelog:
    Code:
    * Receiving calls works now
    * psyafter: SD-Card can be used as internal storage (new Android M feature).
       Can be used to store photos on SD-Card.
        IMPORTANT: the SD-Card will be formatted if you activate this feature.

    * Sensors work now (Orientation, Compass, Proximity, Acceleration, Hall sensor, Step counter).
       Light and Pulse sensors do not work yet.
    * Youtube/Screencast crash fixed
    28
    Call-in is fixed. Expect a new build soon.

    Remaining (major) bugs:
    * Youtube App crashes the whole system. This can be fixed by disabling the Youtube App and using Youtube in the Browser instead (the App MUST be disabled, otherwise the browser will start the Youtube App automatically). The crash is caused by the Youtube App, as it tries to find Screencast devices (seems as if the IGMP Multicast messages cause a kernel crash)
    * Most of the sensors (acceleration, light) do not work.
    25
    The BT call issue (only noise on the other end) is finally fixed.

    The new build with fixed BT calls and new camera app will come this week.
