... Wiped everything according to hennymcc's guide at the first post of the thread and in TWRP formatted /Cache and /Data partitions with F2FS according to this guide, and than installed the zips.
Now the phone definitely feels faster than ever, but I'm not sure whether the battery life is a bit shorter. ..

Sorry for asking: I understand that formatting to F2FS some extra step to be done, which potentially speed up operation.
How compatible is it in terms of TWR backups?

Doesn't it make sense to reformat also the (external) sd-card ?

Hi @starbright_, since the normal TWRP "nandroid" backup by default is not a bit-wise copy of the partitions, you can restore it back on a F2FS formatted partition. I did not try it yet, but in the TWRP settings, you can tick
"use rm -rf instead of formatting"
and afterwards restore your backups.
As far as I know, most of the SD cards are formatted in FAT32 or exFAT - this allows for example to read them from a Windows system card slot. At home, we use Linux and only sometimes Windows (for the tax declaration and Odin :eek:), and you never know what the phone expects - I do not know and did not research whether there's a restriction in LineageOS in general or for our S5 mini in particular. I do can imagine that it works if you use the SD card as an extension of your internal storage, however.

With general performance (not a gamer) I am satisfied.
I have the bigger performance problems while loading maps or rendering them (this I can't distinguish). But if I get it right, reading is not speed up with fs2fs.

No mobile data after update to LOS 14.1

For those who wondering where this is released:
https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=201249
Thanks to @Panzerknakker.
@Panzerknakker, @hennymcc @all:
I have a problem with one of the three S5minis we have in our family. After updating to LOS14.1 the phone is not able to switch to mobile data when WiFi is disabled. A second S5mini has no problem to switch to mobile data when WiFi is disabled.
I checked several things:
- APN is correct and the same on all S5minis
- Baseband is the same from https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s5-mini/general/baseband-sm-g800f-t3354355 on all S5minis. I tried several basebands, nothing changed
- I tried several versions from @Panzerknakker, nothing changed
- changed the SIM-card to different phone, works fine in the other phone. Other SIM-cards also don't switch to mobile data in the S5mini with the problem above

If I check seetings - about the phone - status - status SIM-card the staus of mobile network says connection will be established and isn't changing for hours.

I don't know what to do to get mobile data running.
SMS and calls are working fine on the phone.
Any hints?
Thank you!

Flash stock rom and see if the issue is still there. If yes it's more probable that it's an hardware issue, if not it's more peobable that it's a software issue.

I will try it.
Do you have a link with a short explanation how to do this?
The phone is having TWRP 3.2.1.0 as recovery. I think, I first have to make a backup with TWRP, than replace the recovery and flash stock rom, right? After flashing stock rom it is only necessary to boot until the first run manager starts. Afterwards I reflash TWRP and recover the backup, right?

It's easier than you think. Just wipe system/data/cache/dalvik and then flash the stock rom with Odin. If the rom goes on bootloops, go again into recovery (this time it will be the stock one) and wipe data/cache.

I did following:
- backup of data within some of the apps, that do prvide backup of their settings
- backup with twrp to external SD-card
- backup of data/media to external SD-card
- wiping system/data/cache/dalvik
- flash stock rom with ODIN 3.12.10
- phone started, made initial setup
- started browser and opened Google succesfully!! Mobile data was working.
- shutdown of stock rom
- flashed TWRP with ODIN 3.07
- wiped system/data/cache/dalvik/internal
- recovered LOS14.1 with TWRP
- copied backup fram data/media back to internal data/media
- wiped dalvik/cache

Phone started succesfully, all apps where working as before
BUT: I still don't get mobile data! :(

Any hints?

I had this issue on both our S5 minis, when I put CM/LOS 14.1 onto them the first time about a year ago.
I resolved it finally by using Samsung's phone recovery within Kies to put the original FW on.
Rebooted and set it up basically.
Then installed TWRP with odin.
Wiped everything. I think I had even to do some repartitioning to get LOS flashed.
Installed LOS 14.1 and set it up, no gapps, no apps. Checked mobile data worked ok.
Then installed my apps one after another from scratch.
I did not restore with TWRP and restored only some apps (not system apps) with Titanium Backup.
Since then mobile data has been working on both Minis flawlessly.
Good luck.

Uh, that is not what I wanted to read. It's my wife's phone ... ;).
But your description sounds familiar to me. The second S5 mini which does not have the problem with mobile data was installed pretty similar to the way you described.
I only avoided the installation of stock rom. I didn't do a direct update from CM13 to LOS14.1. I wiped everything within TWRP and then installed LOS14.1 and GApps at one time before booting the first time.
Well, unfurtunately, I have to do it this way. I will let you know, if this helped me out.

Well, made a complete backup with TWRP and also a backup of data/media.
Wiped everything (system/data/cache/dalvik/internal, NOT SD-card) within TWRP.
Installed lineage-14.1-20180116-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte, latest OpenGApps and LOS-root-package from first post.
Wiped dalvik/cache again.
Phone booted succesfully to LOS14.1, finished setup manager.
Phone succesfully switched to mobile data! :)
After installing some more of the previous installed apps, the phone is still running fine.
Should have made more backups with Titanium. It is much easier to restore apps TB as I thought before.
Thanks to @Andrea224 and @Panzerknakker my problem is solved.

To me that problem is still strange, because it happened only when performing a direct update from CM13 to LOS14.1. As @Andrea224 said it is a software problem. It was not necessary to go back to stock. Only wiping everything and reinstalling LOS14.1 helped to solve the problem.

Good to know and mostly good for you. I really forgot to suggest you a direct LOS14.1 clean flash.

    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)
