Settings seem a bit bare compared to 14. In 14, for example, you could remap different functions to the front buttons. I guess that wasn't an AOSP feature. I also flashed addon-su for 14, but the root option doesn't appear.
It has less options because LOS15 is still under development and about the rom itself has already root, so you don't need to flash anything, just grant the root permission when it prompts to you

SD as Internal Storage seem work, but the settings app at 40% stops, then I go to Archive and gives me "SD as Internal Storage".
:confused:

hey guys
first of all thanks for the effort you put into this rom! it's running smooth so far but the problem is that I can't get root. I tried with and without flashing of the su from 14.1 but terminal and titanium don't find it. also there's no root option under developer options.
thanks in advance for any help :)

As I've already said, this rom is pre-rooted with a Magisk 14.1 addon (which is better cause safety-net isn't triggered) and the option isn't there as LOS15 isn't finished yet. These builds are Alpha-builds.

so I have to install Magisk to use su? Or is there no way to use it till now?

Is it still possible that my Lineage OS doesn't detect my SIM-card? Because it shows up my sim card isn't inserted...
Does Settings>About phone>Baseband Version display unknown? And did you come from Touchwiz 6.0.1? If it never detected your SIM Card on Lineage, you need to flash stock MM 6.0.1 and use it for a bit of time before switching back. If it just doesn't work recently, check your Baseband version ;)

I completed the setup, and I don't know why, but lineage itself wanted me to reset the phone (as in wipe Dalvik, cache and data), After done that, it worked fine, even my SIM-card, but thanks for your reply! ;)

Do you know at least what does "pre-rooted" mean? You haven't to flash anything, just flash the rom and you will have root without doing anything else.
yes I know what pre-rooted is supposed to mean but I couldn't get root permission neither with titanium nor with typing "su" in the terminal. That's why I asked if there's something I have to do to get root.
(typing "su" returns not found)

EDIT: solved it by flashing magisk :good:

I don't know why, but I can't get google play to work. Are there more people over here who have the same issue? Or is there already a solution to this problem?

I love having Android 8 running. I'd just like the option of using the hardware buttons as menu button back

    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.
