Is the compass working in the meanwhile? It's not possible for me to calibrate it. I know the function, and I know the move you have to do, but it never does work.

The compass works,but not as good as in stock rom. Take the app GPS status, there you'll see the progress of the calibration. With slow movements in each axis it's always possible to calibrate it... sometimes more movements than mentioned

Could the solution reported in "[Magisk Module] Step By Step Definitive GPS Solution (Global)" thread (https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-5/how-to/step-step-definitive-gps-solution-global-t3695769) be of any help? (I came across this thread via https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=75778773&postcount=309 a thread about lineage on Samsung Galaxy S4 mini). I don't know how to try it myself as I define myself as a newbie...

sorry maybe this is completely unrelated to compass...

Hi guys, first thank you so much for all the amazing development on this ROM. I tried to flash last two versions (jan and feb) but I have the same issue with both. Sometimes it is problematic to wake up the phone when instead of lockscrcreen appears this. It happens intermittently but in nearly half of the "wake up" tests. And the only way how to get rid of it is remove battery or wait few minutes and try again. Any idea what could cause it?

Seems to be the flip cover issue. Search for it in the settings and disable it. Even if you don't use a flip cover it might have been activated by a magnet.

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.
To everybody, who gets the same problem as I had:
Maybe you get another problem after solving the problem with the missing mobile data. The next problem I got that the same phone wasn't able to send SMS. Receiving worked fine. The reason was that the phone lost the SMSC!
Howto resolve the problem:
1. Go to Phone Dialer, and press: *#*#4636#*#*
2. Select Phone information
3. Scroll down to bottom of the screen, you'll see the field for SMSC setting.
4. [Optional] Click Refresh to see current SMSC number.
5. Change the SMSC number as you want. You need to find out the correct SMSC for each mobile provider on your own. Then, click Update.

After that, sending SMS works fine again.

Huge camera bug [s5 mini g800f]

Please be aware that Snapchat is unable to upload videos with any filters/sticker/scribbles etc. Only pure video can be uploaded. Tried everything under the sun to get it to resolve, even deleted the ROM's Google Camera, still zero luck. I've attempted this on several other ROM's all of them bear the same problem. After a few brief seconds the phone crashes and reboots. If you actually tested this ROM through you would have found this issue.

Not only this, the camera begins to lag severely as soon as you record on either Instagram or Snapchat. The video always comes out heavily pixelated for some reason too. I know these are ROM related because on stock ROM i never have pixelation or random crashes. Clean flash was done, every other app functions normal, even Whatspp can record video fine.

This is a major issue none of the developers have bothered to address and it has come to none of their attentions either. Do actually look into it because the OS is really good. The only reason I can't use it permanently is because of this. I also recommend you don't make this mistake on Lineage 15.0 Oreo because that would be extremely foolish.

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini SM-G800F
Lineage 14.1

Tbh, if you can't live with some compromises, then you should stay with the TW or CM13 as this device is one those less considered in the modding side. Quality and quantity are poor, so you have 2 decisions to take: stay on stock or live with bugs and issues.

P.S. hennymcc won't support anymore LOS 14.1 as 15.1 is out and he trying to make a decent build for us.

Well, the Gapps nano nor Pico won't work for me at least. After boot they give FC's. And NO, I didn't forget to wipe everything. I did wipe everything but extSD 3 times before flashing. After flashing ROM did wipe dalvik/cache and installed gapps, wiped dalvik/cache again and same result.

Edit:
Installed the TWRP from here and everything works https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...uide-tutorial-samsung-galaxy-s5-mini-t3669605
No error even with the small root enabler

About the compass... I'm using panzerknakker latest rom and the compass suffers from being VERY slow. Calibrating compass with GPS status and toolbox takes around 1 and a half minutes to almost fully calibrate, and while navigating with google maps app it is very laggy when I make a 90° (or more) turn... the visualization remains stuck for about 10 seconds before refresching to the actual direction I'm in and loses aGPS signal frequently when making a 90° (or more) turn. Do I have to logcat something?

If I rememver right, the logcat shows, that it can't store the calibration data. So calibration get lost.
No idea why access to compass is so terrible slow. Problems with i2c ?

I think updating to twrp-3.2.1-0-kminilte.img via Odin did the trick. (Odin would not letting me change reboot settings. But I just hit start and rebooted and seemed to have worked.)
Then I reinstalled the 20170819 hennymcc rom, rebooted, set up the phone and wifi, and then went into recovery and added nano gapps.

    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)
