Update

OK,Here is an update for the people who have been asking. There is no OTA with this,sorry. You'll have to flash this the old fashion way. All of the warnings from the original post stand,so please refer to that before flashing!
I have not tested this,but see no reason why there would be a problem.
Changes:
* Synced CM sources
* Used some Samsung MM proprietary libs that are working and are stable on my Slim builds: MobiCore,Wifi,Sensors,GPS,Bluetooth,Keystore & Fingerprint.

Nice work, but could it be possible for you to substitute the camera part with a more stable version (maybe from the many official 6.0.1 builds)?
Because the camera crashes are the last main problem for me with cm13 and drivin' me nuts...

Yeah, it's not really that simple. I removed the stock camera and the gallery app from my slim ROM builds, as this is suppose to mostly solve that issue. I didn't want to do that with this ROM though as I just wanted to build a "stock CM13" for people. My advise is to freeze or uninstall the stock camera app with a root uninstaller and see if it solved your problem.

I've deactivated the built-in camera app within the app menu and use an alternative camera app (open camera), but same stability issues as before.
I've uninstalled the built-in camera with Titanium Backup and use the Google Camera app.
I don't recognise any issues with the camera or mediaserver since I've uninstalled the built-in camera app.

Thanks for the Rom. Everything works fine so far.
I've uninstalled the built-in camera and gallery with Titanium Backup and use the Snap camera with Snap gallery since July 2016.
No stability issues anymore.

Nice... i've gave it a try, but after a successful uninstall with Titanium Backup i can still open the built-in camera app and the uninstall option can be used again and so on... Weird.

Strange, but this happens sometimes to system apps. Try to deactivate it first with TB and the stock gallery too (Einfrieren). Then take them manually out of the autostart options as well.
My next advice would be to use Lucky Patcher for deactivating/uninstalling.
Good luck

Hi!

Just a quick tip: all apps that are preinstalled are located under system/app and system/priv-app. Just delete the folder with the package name of the app you like to remove. After a restart the app is gone completely.

Thanks for the advice... Mysteriously, TB claims that it has deleted system/priv-app/snap/snap.apk but it was still there, so i've deleted it manually and i will see if this would help in future...

PS: It didn't helped...Camera crashes again :(

Try Uninstaller by jumubile, that was the only one that worked for me to uninstall system apps. I just froze the camera app with sd-maid, then the mediaserver crashed, I just used the MS-Killer and rebooted, then I installed Snap Camera HDR, no issues since < 8 Months ?

I read somewhere that you have to remove the gallery app too. I did this and didn't have any problems since. Maybe just change the apps? The packages I use are sourceforge.opencamera and simplemobiletools.gallery. Also make sure to grant permissions needed for the apps. No more ideas.

I kept the gallery app and it still works, so I think the people telling it's not working have a) not uninstalled/freezed the camera properly or b) not rebooted.

The detailed problem with the cm camera is that it crashes the mediaserver when you switch between video/photo or when you close or switch the current app.

I can confirm that I have had the camera issues on this phone for some time, and the following resolved the problem 100%:

Current build: 13.0-20161024-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte

  1. Freeze the Camera 2 app using Titanium Backup (TB)
  2. Reboot phone
  3. Uninstall Camera 2 app using TB
  4. Reboot phone
  5. Confirm Camera 2 app is no longer installed
  6. Install "Google Camera" app as replacement

Some things to note:
  1. When searching the Google Play Store for "Google Camera" nothing was returned. I had to use a web browser to manually load the Google Camera app direct link and push it to my phone from the web. You will have to log into your Google account to do this.
  2. I did NOT have to freeze nor uninstall the Gallery app - it's working fine after doing all this.

Hope this helps other folks, thanks for the suggestions to previous posters.

Tried this now (Freeze -> Reboot -> Uninstall -> Reboot -> Install Google Camera apk). Seems to be working fine :) fingers crossed, will check for some more time.

Battery drain problem solved

Today, Android 6.0.1 was released for the Samsung GALAXY S5 mini :victory: :victory: :victory: :
[link disabled]
Quote:
'Date Country/Carrier Version PDA
2016-12-14 United Arab Emirates 6.0.1 G800FXXU1CPK5'

It would be great if the develpers can fix all issues now, especially the camera and the very fast battery drain while the device gets very warm even if on standby.

About battery drain... It isn't this ROM problem. Normally battery drain in original (samung's|lollipop 5.1.1) ROM's is pretty good (after normal I had ~50% battery power left) but after flashing my AP and installing this ROM, battery drain grown up. There is a solution. After flashing, often battery after that process is discalibrated. But it easy to repair this problem. You need to install ROOT essentials form Google Play.

Now you need look for right function. [First button in first menu. There're instructions how to calibrate your battery.]

Problem solved :highfive:

Battery drain

I think that the issue may be caused by installed applications. I cleaned the data and cache (factory reset), switched off mobile internet, switched on wifi. Result is on the picture. The main reason of high power consumption is in the screen in my case.

If you live in a place where there is not no much phone coverage your battery consumption will be much higher as your phone keeps looking for signal.
I am currently using official 6.0.1 ROM and the battery lasts the whole day with just one charge at night. Where I live I have always 4G/LTE and a very strong signal...

    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.

    Here is the new build:
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24421527759885453

    Changelog:
    • Fixed lock-screen freeze
    • Fixed Infrared support

    New build released:
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24352994023702776

    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.
    * GPS works now
    * 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.
