And LOS?
Do you have Magisk or any other SU related addon installed?

Sorry I don't really know. I just installed the ROMs from this thread. Is there any way to just reinstall PlayStore with an apk?
Should that work?

---------- Post added at 10:15 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:01 AM ----------

Which Version (Date of Build) of LOS and Playstore are you using?

Interesting: When I want to download something using the Browser this app then also stops working.
So does it have something to do with downloading files/saving them on my phone?

Thanks for all the help so far.

Maybe I don't have enough space on my internal storage? But how can that be? I wiped everything.... there should be the OS and Gapps only? Any suggestions?

For those of you who want to directly Flash the latest version of TWRP via ODIN:
1) Download the latest TWRP IMG (or if you want to use LOS 15 you need this version)
2) Convert the IMG into a MD5 (I used this)
3) Flash the MD5 using ODIN as instructed on the first page of this thread
4) ???
5) Profit

There are .img and .img.tar files on the TWRP website. It's possible to directly flash the .img.tar file in Odin :D so no need to convvert files :silly:

Hi,
after half a day I still don't have a running version.
Can anyone recommend a stable OS that might work for me?
I am not sure whether I am doing something wrong. Last thing I used was TWRP "twrp-3.1.1-1" with "Odin3 v3.10.7".
I tried "lineage-14.1-20171022-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte" with various Gapps (open_gapps-arm-7.1-mini-20171101, &micro &nano, Full_Dynamic_GApps-7.1.x-20170121).

When I connect my phone to my computer the internal storage is empty.
It shows no folders. Any problems with this? And when I want to recover my Whatsapp Data it says "not enough space" although tons of room left on the drive.
Playstore always shuts down... :(

Because you didn't installed the correct usb/adb drivers. Check windows update, install it and restart the OS/phone.

No extra files needed but the 25 build is homemade so there is no integrated updater support after flashing it.

I need some help, I can't understand very well what I need to do:
-First I flash with ODIN the recovery.tar.md5 in download mode
-Then I have to flash, with ODIN again the update TWRP in download mode
-And finally I can flash the custom rom
Are these passages correct? If there is something wrong please explain to me

I use the following setup right now:

* TWRP from 22.10.2017 (which is LineageOS 15/oreo compatible)
* lineage-14.1-20171025_075150-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte.zip
* Magisk 14+
* Xposed 82.2 systemless
* Viper4Android systemless
* NanoMod (NoGapps)
* Systemless Busybox
* some other gimmicks ..

No error or something it works without any problem, just ensure you do full wipe and a cache wipe afterwards.Only problem with this build is that the integrated LineageOS updater doesn't work. :eek:

Well, i do have a very similiar config:

* TWRP 3.1.1.-1
* lineage-14.1-20171025_075150-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte.zip
* addonsu
* MicroG (NoGapps)
* Patched Framework.jar (SuperuserMod)

The biggest issue with this ROM imho is the crappy camera !
I can't manage to get a fluid Video recording in 1080p/30fps, which does't depend on the app (LOS 'stock'-camera, open camera, ...)

Any hints ?

btw: LOS 13 was perfect regarding this point

Hi all,
I've updated my phone from hennymcc rom (lineage-14.1-20170602-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte) to the last rom from ayke (lineage-14.1-20171022-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte).
TWRP flash (3.1.1-0) + wipe dalvik
New rom is working very fine.
I've notice one improvement on fingerprint scanner (with Flip Flap activated), previously was going in deep sleep when closing cover and it was hard to reactivate it after. Now it is not staying in deep sleep but after open the cover I need to close and open the cover to reactivate fingerprint scanner.
Thanks again for that great work.

The problem is that the camera quality is depending on how proper the driver is implemented, LOS/CynogenMod always had troubles with that because Samsung not provided anything needed on source code for a 1:1 implementation - that said, no homebrew/home-cooked rom can compete with the Stock camera quality or driver. There are a lot of mods and people claiming that they fixed it but nothing is true because this is a driver thing and no software or app can fix this. Same goes to Wifi / BT these components are highly depending on closed source drivers which Samsung refuse to release. So no there is nothing you can do and don't waste your time on it, I already did this and it's always the same.

Thanks, I've made the same experience with Sony devices !

Just wondering why the cam driver in LOS 13 was far better ???
So even homebrew drivers can reach the quality of the stock driver, at least in LOS 13

From what I know LOS 13 (which is CyanogenMod not LOS) adopted the driver from another smartphone/driver, last time I checked GitHub it was taken from another branch which explains then the difference in the quality. Theoretically it can be back-ported and re-adopted again but that's not an easy task and takes a lot of time and effort. The thing is not really much people care much about our device - in other words there isn't enough manpower to maintain such changes (I think). However only workaround is to use app which providing own (generic drivers) like camera fv-5, which might made some small changes in quality.

Most of the time the devices are 'dead' in support after 2 years, there are people which maintaining the changes from Android <-> to LOS but that doesn't fix **** in 99% of the time, it's just maintaince to 'provide' something without fixing anything because as said that's another story and a task which requires huge skills. That said it's normally not worth (except security related fixes) to switch to newer ROM's because they not changing anything which improve your usability.

The builds by @Panzerknakker are quite stable and fairly recent: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=profile&uid=961840155545583234
@ayke enabled OTA in his builds but he updates them not as often anymore: https://aykevl.nl/android

Last but not least, there is the original build by @hennymcc which is also rather outdated but he only supports builds he tested on his phone himself: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=673368273298979943
However, I think his main focus is currently at the LOS 15 build: https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...t/g800f-m-y-lineageos-15-0-g800f-m-y-t3678205.
Maybe there will be no new LOS 14.1 build by him.

These are all of the current active maintainers of builds I know of.
(No worries, they all use the same codebase)

@ayke , @panzerknacker , @hennymcc

Do we have a chance to see a backported cam driver in LOS 14.1 or (imho would make more sense) in LOS 15 ?
The one in LOS/CM 13 was a least 10 times better ... ;)

    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)
