This memory problem (apps can't write to filesystem) - is it still present? Is it a S5 or a LOS issue?
There are not much news here, so someone can come to the conclusion the development for S5 is frozen.
Hope I am wrong.
Would like to update from LOS 14 but still afraid about missing features. Can one of the current users create a short summery?
Thanks
The Operater is still tring to solve the problem. I wouldn't install this ROM on my phone because I already have trying it and this Storage Problem is a very big.
So you have to wait for an update.

@Andrea224
Have you already tried to fix storage problem?
So we can see if this is a very BIG problem or something you can manage.

First of all, I'm not a developer, so I can't fix things (I only build, which is different). Then, @spookcity138 seems to have fixed the storage issue and he released a test build for it (which I already tried). Maybe he or hennymcc will include this fix on LOS once it got stable.

Ok, I wasn't sure if you also develop some how.

But that's nice to hear! So we can hope for an update?

This is a test build and afaik memory storage should be fixed (on my side no problems until now). There's only an error message on boot but it doesn't cause any issue so far.
Thanks to @spookcity138 for the fix.
Well done! This ROM is already pretty good.
But there are also some bugs left which should be solved:
- We have a again this YouTube or Instagram Story zoom problem...
- The OK Google don't work. That's because the step to recognise your noise don't work probably. It just get the first time you say Ok Google. After that I don't recognize anything. This problem exist already in the 15.0 Version. But I don't know if the problem only exist on my device. Have anyone the same problem?

These are the 2 bugs which I already have recognise.


But some things are also better than in 7.1.2. For example the fingerprint sensor is working much more faster!

So for those who asking to install the ROM - The ROM is (in my opinion) stable but still have some bugs which maybe solved in the next update. The storage problem don't exist anymore. So you have to look if the bugs which are there are very bad or ok for you.

Thanks a lot for all developers!

There's only an error message on boot but it doesn't cause any issue so far.

This can be supressed by changing the props configuration, alternative you can use the MagiskHide Props Config if you like to do it with a pre-made list. I used Galaxy S6 and the message was gone.

What I noticed is that /system-priv apps folders (not the content) can't be deleted, I tried with Solid Explorer. The normal /system/apps folder are okay. I remember that we had this exact same issue (just with all folders) on the first unofficial build too.

Thank you @Andrea224, @spookcity138 and @IamEld3st for your great job!
But I've still got a problem with this ROM: The SD card is recognized and the free space is displayed correctly, but it is not accessable from the file manager. Even connected by USB the explorer shows not all file of the SD card or files that doesn't exist. I use a 64GB card formatted with FAT32 filled up to 10GB. Does anybody knows about this behavior?

Keep on this good work!

Hi Andrea,
I've tried your update on my kminilte (G800F), but your updater-script stops while saying: your device is recognized as "".
Overgone this by editing the script, not to ask for the device.

Code:
Afterwards, it takes a long boot and finaly asking von the SIM-PIN... given that, the LockScreen appears.
After unlocking: Setup Wizard keeps stopping.
What's going wrong?
Flashed your update with TWRP 3.1.1-1, before the nougat firmware Slim7 preexists.
Missed installing GApps... obviosly this is a requirement :(
But another question... is there a known problem with mounting the (exFAT formatted) sdcard?
Folder were shown with 0 Bytes and no access...

Many thanks for your support!
Gunnar

first off all you should take the twrp that was build for oreo v3.2.1.-0... https://dl.twrp.me/kminilte/ :D
Hi Andi,
I've done so... but without success.

I've tried EVERY Oreo 8.1 distribution (AEX 5.4, RR-O 6.0, LOS 15.1) and also TWRP 3.1.1-0/3.2.1-0!
None of them work... maybe they have a problem with exFAT formatted sdcards?
(I never used it as "internal" with android, always used corresponding gapps "pico")

This "Alpha"-ROM (from first post, LineageOS 15.0 aka Oreo 8.0) works like it should.
Except from not showing the content of the sd in widows explorer (empty).
Strange.

last available LOS 15.1 build from @Andrea224 is lineage-15.1-20180506-UNOFFICIAL-kminilte.zip https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VZucQKPumyU-Y6OfP4qrrhZC_7TDnZ5f/view
why don't you just copy the content from your card to pc and format it FAT or FAT32 ? flashing every kind of rom takes much longer :)

I flashed the ROM from @Andrea224 and got the problem, that I'm not able to send or receive any media in Threema and that Backups in WhatsApp are completely broken... before I was using the version from the first post of this thread without issue...

I whiped the entire device before doing so (system/data)... Anyone experienced something like this?

Yeah same bug here. This problem was mentioned in the test build topic and if I remember correctly they assumed there are some problems with modifying existing files. Another for that example is the list whom you've called. It resets itself too, when it gets modified.

Use the latest build from @Andrea224, everything works (apart from the HR sensor)

As i wrote... already tried that version.

Can't live with the limitations of FAT or FAT32.. and why should exFAT be slower than the others?

    This is a LineageOS 15.1 ROM for the Exynos3470 based Samsung Galaxy S5 mini (G800F/G800M/G800Y).

    DO NOT USE IT FOR G800H OR YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE
    Please do not ask for support or ROMs for the G800H. G800F and G800H have nothing in common.

    Working features
    • HW accelerated GUI
    • Initiate and receive calls
    • Camera (only photos)
    • Flash Light
    • Sound
    • Fingerprint scanner
    • 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)
    • Wifi
    • GPS
    • Bluetooth (A2DP, HFP, HID)
    • Mobile Data
    • SMS
    • MTP storage
    • USB-OTG (Keyboard, Mouse, USB-Audio)
    • IR
    • NFC
    • Video reproduction is still sometimes a bit buggy on browser (Youtube works fine)

    Untested features:
    • SD-Card as internal storage

    Known issues:
    • USB-OTG (Mass-Storage): detected but the file-system is not usable and will be corrupted afterwards (--> do not connect your USB-stick at the moment)
    • SELinux not enforcing
    • Video recording is still buggy/not working (crashes)
    • Fingerprint scanner can only records 3 fingers and sometimes it could be unresponsive

    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)
    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.
    • 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.

    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, 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.

    Flash ROM:
    • Reboot into recovery mode (Press Volume-Up + Home + Power button)
    • 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.
    • Copy GApps and LineageOS ROM zip to your device's internal or external SD card
      • Connect your device via USB to a PC. You should see the device in the Windows File Explorer now.
        • If you do not see the device in File Explorer, make sure that MTP is enabled (inside Mounts, click on Enable MTP).
        • If MTP does not work from recovery, try to copy via MTP by booting your old Android ROM or just remove the external SD card and copy to it directly.
      • Select one of the two drives (internal or external SD) and copy the files to it.
        • Do not put the files into the data directory of the internal sd card, otherwise they will be wiped in the next step.
    • 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 LineageOS 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

    Hi everyone, now that I'm a contributor I've updated the main post and I've finally added my Gdrive folder link where you can find the last and the previous LOS 15.1 updates. I'll release them at least monthly/weekly, when the security patches are updated or if there's a new fix for the phone. Also, I'll post a changelog (even if short) about the update.

    Regards

    A short status update on Oreo:
    Lineage 15.1 finally left the staging area last week (which does not mean that it is already released).

    I just tried it and telephony, mobile data, wifi, audio and bluetooth are working.
    Camera is not working anymore (neither taking photos nor video recording) as the patches I applied to 15.0 do not apply anymore to 15.1.
    For some reason RIL (i.e. telephony) which was working in 15.0 is broken now but I did not take a deeper look at it so far.

    Camera video recording (with HAL1) is still not fixed in lineage. About 1/3 or 2/3 of the devices supported by lineage 14.1 only support camera HAL1 so the chances are quite good that this will be fixed in lineage in the next months.

    As long as camera (at least taking photos) and RIL is not working I will not provide builds for it. All source updates are pushed to github in case somebody wants to try it.
