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

Check the G800F LineageOS ROM for more info.



This is a CyanogenMod 14.1 ROM for the Exynos3470 based Samsung Galaxy S5 mini (G800F/G800M/G800Y).

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.

Important note: It is possible that flashing this ROM can cause efs partition issues. Therefore it is strongly recommended to make a backup of your efs partition before flashing this ROM. This can be done via TWRP.

Working features
  • HW accelerated GUI
  • Camera (pictures+video: Back+Front) (switching between camera and video-recording might crash the camera-app)
  • MTP storage
  • Flash Light
  • Bluetooth (A2DP, HFP, HID)
  • IR
  • Sound
  • SMS
  • Initiate and receive calls (the first ingoing call seems to have no sound)
  • 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
  • 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:

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 14.1.

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 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, Psyafter, spookcity138 and ayke for working on this ROM.

This is just a test build. CM 14.1 is not released yet and still instable. There are lots of known issues.

Here a short list of known problems:
  • First incoming call has no sound
  • Camera app crashes when you try to switch between camera and video recording mode (in this case: restart the app and recording will work)
  • Messages with "Browser crashed" will occur from time to time
  • The default browser does not always display all the text that was typed into a text field.

Hey ! :)

Thanks for your amazing job (all of you), I don't have any browser crashes since I use chrome and I remove the stock browser, I also don't have any crash with my camera. I use Google Camera for that. Here is a list of bugs I've noticed:

- Chrome (stable) has crashed the first time I've opened it (only one time, that's why I did say that I don't have any browser crashes)
- Sometimes, something like "MTP Host" crashes..
- In Allo, while sending a message, there's a little sound, that's not a bug since it's in the app... But that sound is garbled (I don't know if that word is correct, I've used Google Translate for it)

I guess that's all..

Also, I don't have robotic voice... :) Good bye ! And thanks again ;)

EDIT: About the "MTP Host" app.. it's the download app :/

Bugs

Hi there, thanks for your work on the rom really enjoying it and love Android 7.

Throughout my use I have discovered a bug with YouTube (not sure if it's the app or rom, but reporting anyway as did not happen on Mm) where changing into 720p causes the app to zoom into the upper left corner of the video. It can be remedied buy only using 360p but is rather annoying.

Again thanks for the work on the rom and all the best in the future. ?

I also experienced that with some internet players when watching HD content..

Well,as of now my sim card is not detected on CM14 for some strange reason. I seem to be alone in that. The robotic voice,if I remember correctly is linked to using the LP libs. Maybe someday we'll see official MM for the g800f. [emoji3]

You had changed the device tree as I remember and you fixed it last time ( I might be wrong I have no idea about developing) anyhow any help would be awesome because I need my phone for my work so I cant have that robotic voice... Thank you

    I already have a working LineageOS build. Last weekend LineageOS seemed a little bit unfinished. Seems they are finished now with the conversion to LineageOS.

    The last weeks I was working on the integration of the stock MM libs. The stock radio/audio libs did not work correctly but now it seems to be fixed. The first LineageOS build will probably be a 13.0 build. When the robotic voice issue is fixed I will release a 14.1 build.
    Still the graphic drivers (and also camera) libs from MM do not work yet and need some work.

    The 13.0 build might be released next weekend but that depends on how much time I have to work on this - might also be two or three weeks.

    In general supporting a (proprietary) Exynos based device like the G800F takes much more time than a (more open) Snapdragon based devices. This is also true for the officially supported S6 (zeroLTE) and the non-official S7.
    19
    LineageOS

    Here is a first LineageOS 14.1 build:
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=673368273298928045

    I did not have time to test this build so far - I just updated to the newest lineageOS, so hopefully there should not be breaking changes. I will have have time to test it this evening the earliest.

    The installation procedure is the same as with CM. Note that root is not available by default. You have to install addonsu-arm-signed.zip from
    https://download.lineageos.org/extras

    Features:
    * Migration to LineageOS
    * Robotic voice fixed
    * First call fixed

    There will be a new forum for LineageOS later. There won't be a migration build.
    17
    I think I fixed the robotic voice issue now. I just released the fix with the new LineageOS 13.0 ROM.
    The 14.1 ROM will come later. Not sure if it will be this or next weekend (or later).
    17
    OK, seems as if calls are fixed now. I might manage to build a new LineageOS ROM this week.
