Maybe we should describe the hole sequence in detail. Does flashing of latest FW via ODIN works independent from what is currently on S5 Mini? Under which circumstance is flashing with PIT required?
Once flashed original firmware it must be rooted and than in 3rd step install TWRP ? (I guess I need root for installing TWRP).
And howto do that? Honestly, (despite the initial post describing most points) I spend some time until I get this. Because not all points has been uptodate.
I am still on the old May 25th version, because I am not certain about the steps to do.

Good idea, would make things easier. Just one thing: TWRP has to be flashed (with Odin) before a root zip file can be flashed (with TWRP). The procedure may be different with flash fire, but I haven't used that.

please make the volte work.. evrythg else is suprb...:)

Add lines to build.prop:
Persist.dbg.ims_volte_enable = 1
Persist.dbg.volte_avail_ovr = 1
Persist.dbg.vt_avail_ovr = 1
Persist.data.iwlan.enable = true
Persist.dbg.wfc_avail_ovr = 1

And you will see by the code *#*#4636#*#* that all the communication switches, Volte, wifi calls, video calls are on.
But does this make any sense on our apparatus, I do not know. My operator does not support any of this.

in youtube videos, some files in the root folder is replaced to fix volte. but that will only work for stock roms.

editing build file dosnt work for me. is there any other way to make it work.

please make the volte work..

Asking it 4 times (in different threads) won't make it work any faster.

My carrier doesn't support VoLTE so I wouldn't be able to enable (test) it if I wanted to. Remember that all devs are doing it as a hobby and have limited time/resources to fix things. If you really want it fixed, consider learning how ROM building works so you can work on it yourself.

I also do not have the possibility to test VoLTE here.

So if you really want VoLTE to work you should at least try to test if the solution given by Oleggluk works for you. You can find more detailed instructions on how to change the build.prop here:
https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/root-working-volte-on-stock-oxygen-3-1-0.480128/

If you tested it and it works I can see if we can get the options in the build.prop by default without breaking non VoLTE setups (like mine).

Edit:
Maybe I misunderstood your last sentence and you already tried Oleggluk's solution. If you already succeeded in editing the build.prop file: do you see the "Enhanced 4G LTE Mode" setting that is described for the OnePlus?

i already tried the solution given by oleggluk. when dailing *#*#4636#*#* i see a volte provision switch. but there is no enhanced lte mode in settings.

The fingerprint scanner works a bit better at least - it gets turned off after you lock your phone so it doesn't freeze whrn you touch it while it's sleeping anymore. However it still freezes ocassionally so it's the same as on Touchwiz :)
Hi!
I have no issues with the fingerprint scanner on the stock Touchwiz rom.However in any other custom rom(mm/N) it works a while then wen it's really need, it's not work...

I completely agree.
Perhaps there are smartphones with the same sensor and custom firmware., Developers can they spy on the idea of how to do better.?

I did a dirty update now with the July,6th version. Just clean system, cache, dalvik - and flash the LOS-zip, gapps and root afterwards.

Ok, one more time, I hope it helps someone.
I just bought another refurbished device in the bay with Kitkat 4.4 and this was my way to the latest rom:
- let it update OTA to MM (to avoid the pit problem)
- after flashing, boot into the system and do the initial setup, shut down
- reboot into download mode (Volume-Down + Home + Power button), install the official twrp3.1.1 with odin and DON'T let it reboot!
- shut down the phone (remove battery), reboot into recovery mode with pressing Volume-UP + Home + Power button at the same time and release them.
- wipe all partitions except EFS (if it shows up).
- flash latest LOS-zip, gapps and root afterwards with addonsu-arm-signed.zip for 14.1 from the Lineageos Extras download page
- boot into system and enable root in the developer options - done

Have built a new version from the unchanged sources at
https://github.com/cm-3470/android_device_samsung_kminilte
Security level 2017/07/05.

lineage-14.1-20170721-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte.zip.md5sum:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=745425885120750928
lineage-14.1-20170721-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte.zip:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=961840155545584106

I use it on 2 SM-G800F with Spookcity_Kernel-N_v3.0.

I used the 20170622-version before and did a dirty flash. Magisk 13.3 was automatically reapplied after LOS installation. Also a nice side note: The introduced file manager bug in latest build (https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=72791907&postcount=1112) is solved again. No error messages while moving or deleting files.
Thank you for the Update!

THX for the LOS update @Panzerknakker...
@all - BTW now it's possible to use a theme with Substratum in Lineage OS without running into issues at a LOS update - in my case Swift Black 9.5
there was a big substratum change recently...

    Security Patch Level April, plz try
  • 59
    This is a LineageOS 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
    • 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
    • SELinux

    Non-working features:

    Known issues:
    • Camera crashes when switching from camera to video. Use Google camera or Open camera to solve camera issues.
    • See the Bug Report section of this thread.

    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 Download 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" (in newer versions: "AP") and select the recovery image (recovery.tar.md5)
    • Check that only "F. Reset Time" is set. "Auto Reboot" should be disabled to avoid a reboot into stock ROM.
    • Click on "Start": the recovery image should be flashed now. By flashing the recovery, your warranty will be void.
    • After the recovery flashing process was successful, power of your device, wait a few seconds and reboot into recovery mode (see instructions below).
    • Important: make sure not to boot into stock ROM, otherwise the stock ROM might remove the custom recovery again. If this happens, flash the recovery image again.

    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 ROM:
    • 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 the ROM 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:
    LineageOS does not have root support integrated by default. You have to download addonsu-arm-signed.zip for 14.1 from the Lineageos Extras download page and install it with TWRP.
    After that root access is still disabled by default. 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, ayke and mirhciulica for working on this ROM.

    Official TWRP 3.1.1

    I've worked together with the TWRP maintainers to make TWRP official, and it's finally here :D
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s5-mini/orig-development/recovery-twrp-3-1-1-exynos-t3626646

    You can download it from here:
    https://twrp.me/devices/samsunggalaxys5miniexynos.html
    21
    A new build is available:
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=961840155545570720

    It turned out that the patch found by Spookcity not only fixes Firefox but also the fingerprint bootloop. So the new build should be usable again.
    As the initial bootloops probably were also caused by the fingerprints it should not be necessary anymore to wipe everything (although still recommended).

    Changes:
    • Firefox crash&reboot fixed
    • Enabling the fingerprint reader does not cause bootloops anymore
    • Ambient display option added (disabled by default)
