Will there be an update of the first thread?

I've lost the overview :/

I only link ROMs on the first page that I tested myself. If you want a more recent ROM than the one in the opening post you can try any ROM you want but at least do not expect me to provide any support for it.

Does not see the sim card lineage20170819 lineage 20170820
:silly:
Enough to write each update the same thing! Instructions you already wrote to anyone who is not lazy.
Хватит писать каждое обновление одно и тоже! Инструкцию тебе писали уже все кому не лень.
Досить писати кожне оновлення одне і теж! Інструкцію тобі писали вже всі кому не лінь.
Genug, um jedes Update die gleiche Sache zu schreiben! Anleitung, die du schon an jemanden geschrieben hast, der nicht faul ist.
O suficiente para escrever cada atualização o mesmo! Instruções que você já escreveu para quem não é preguiçoso.
Suficiente para escribir cada actualización la misma cosa! Instrucciones que ya escribió a alguien que no es perezoso.
同じことを各アップデートに書き込むには十分です! あなたが既に怠け者ではない人に書いた指示。
Довољно је писати свако ажурирање исту ствар! Упуте које сте већ написали свима који нису лијени.

Gapps keep crashing

So, I was happy with 20170602. Then I noticed the latest build. Dirty flashed and all looked good for a sec then setup wizard kept crashing. Thought fair enough needs clean install. Wipped internal system cache and dalvik installed it then gapps arm7.1. After boot was flooded with crashing gapps bits.
At this point thought latest may be buggy. Went 1 down same and another one same.
Dirty flashed 20170602 - gapps work a charm.
What the heck am I doing wrong?
Twrp is 3.0.0 can that be a problem?

Do you use latest gapps?
Also you could try dirty flash from your working system WTHOUT wiping system (only the caches) and don't flash gapps again. Gapps stay when you don't wipe system.

Did a clean install (wipe system, cache and dalvik / installed hennymc's build, gapps and su) - all I tested was fine.
TRWP was 3.1.1 - but I used the gapps that are older (july, 22nd).

I am have same issue as KarsaOrlong. G800Y. Fresh wipe from stock. twrp 3.1.1. Latest Gapps (ARM7.1 / nano). On first boot the loader bar loops until I killed it after about 15 minutes, then on next boot 'setup wizard stopped responding' along with other messages that are similar for other google apps.

Please do like KarsaOrlong did. Wipe caches again and flash gapps. He reported it's working now.

"Setup Wizards keeps stopping"-loop

As a-dead-trousers already noticed I fixed the G800(F/...) model name problem and built a new release:

After a "Factory Reset"-wipe in TWRP v2.8.1.0 and an installation of lineage-14.1-20170819 I get the "Setup Wizards keeps stopping"-loop.
Any idea what causes this problem and/or how to fix this? TIA

You are using a very old TWRP, please get latest official (in original development) and try again.

How's the performance and battery life compared to stock rom (I'm running G800F with 6.0.1)? Regarding stock rom... I've no problems with the battery life (I get +48 hours with light usage which is excellent) but the performance (using Nova Launcher and all the Android/Samsung tips and tricks to reduce battery drain and enhance performance) has been bad for while now: some apps when opened load and load load before you get past the first screen. I'm hoping this ROM would bring new life to this phone that shouldn't be obsolete just yet.

Hard to say. I've got a battery life of around 4 days but most of the time I've deactivated WiFi and mobil data. Therefor I consider myself a non-normal smartphone user ;)
For a better performance you could use a different kernel. For instance @spookcity138's: https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...ustom-roms-t3626015/post72776086#post72776086
He's constantly tweaking it to get the most out of it.

On a side note:
I also use Magisk with the DozeGMS+ module. This might also help me achieving a longer battery life cause it puts Google Play Services in doze mode.

Oh, before i forget: If you deacivate WiFi to stop it from draining your battery, don't forget to also deactivate the search feature in Location (GPS). This keeps the WiFi running which also drains the battery.

On never versions of android this option is located under Location in the top right extended menu (the three dots)

    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)
