I've tried connecting a controller to my phone but I don't get any input.
It used to work on JDC team's optimized lineage OS nougat ROM.
Is this a Resurrection Remix issue or an Oreo one?

Love the ROM thank you so much for all your hard work. Just wondered though if the Bluetooth to phone conversationalist had been fixed please or is it still a work in progress. No pressure though I think your ROM is absolutely fabulous. Thank you again.:good::cowboy:

Only ROM and gaapps.
But version of magisk in aroma is only 16.0. you will want to update to 17.1. but you can do it in magic manager easily, just apply directly.

Anyone experience a problem with not seeing all the wifi connections possible ?
I can see my home wifi ok, but if I create a hotspot off another phone, I cannot see this in the list, also creating manually doesn't connect it.
Any ideas ?

    Resurrection-Remix-N-3.png
    Resurrection Remix 6.2.0
    Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505 (jfltexx)
    Release 06 - 12th September 2018
    Code:
    #include
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     * And other random stuff no-one reads.
     */
    Intro

    This is a straight port of Resurrection Remix for Galaxy S4 i9505.
    It is based on oreo 8.1.0_r43 plus latest code from LineageOS 15.1 and Resurrection Remix on 10th September.
    Security updates up to September are applied.
    Substratum can be used with the integrated theme engine.
    Root is not integrated. Latest Magisk beta is recommended.

    All hardware support issues will be similar to BB's AOSP 8.1 / Side's OptLOS 15.1.
    DOES
    • GPS, orientation and acceleration work, though is a bit slow to get a fix. You MUST use an app to cache A-GPS data before initial fix. i.e. GPS Locker.
    • NFC - works on my bluetooth headset to instigate connection. Needs testing into further (pay etc.) functionality.
    • Camera. Photos front / rear. Video front / rear. In-built Snap fully working. 3rd party apps fully working.
    • Bluetooth music works.
    • Viper4AndroidFX and other Magisk hosted sound mods work.
    • Don't tell me.
    DOESN'T
    • GLONASS.
    • Calls using bluetooth headsets are garbled.
    • Treble-ised implementation. Erm. No.
    • Don't tell me.

    Installation
    Required for installation:
    Recovery - Latest version of TWRP - 3.2.2-0
    Firmware - Lollipop supporting bootloader and modem / non-hlos. Look in _Bon_Bon's great MODEMS and BOOTLOADERS collection
    Gapps - a latest version of Open Gapps 8.1. Either Pico / Nano or use a Config-Gapps file to customise a Super Gapps install​
    The following are "best practice" recommendations for installation, you may be successful using your own routine.
    1st install - " clean install "
    • Make a full nandroid backup <always backup!>.
    • Fully wipe device (At least system, cache, dalvik and data. Recommended - fully clean by wiping internal and external SD).
    • Install Rom.
    • Install desired root solution. (recommended - Magisk).
    • Install Gapps.
    • Install JDC aroma addon. <optional>
    • DO NOT Wipe cache and art / dalvik (rom is partially pre-deodexed).
    • Reboot.
    • Wait for 1st boot.
    • Enjoy.
    2nd and subsequent installs - " dirty flash "

    • [*}Uninstall all Substratum overlays.
    • Make a full nandroid backup <always backup!>.
    • Properly remove previous root solution (recommended - flash Magisk uninstaller and UnSU).
    • Wipe system, cache and art / dalvik (wiping system is ESSENTIAL for Magisk).
    • Install Rom.
    • Install desired root solution. (recommended - Magisk).
    • Install latest Gapps (recommended - Update with latest Gapps for every dirty flash to claim back system storage space).
    • Install JDC aroma addon. <optional>
    • DO NOT wipe cache and art / dalvik (rom is partially pre-deodexed).
    • Reboot.
    • Wait for app optimisation.
    • Enjoy.
    While dirty flashing may be possible for some updates, be prepared that progress means you will occasionally need to clean install updates (usually when settings files are changed)!
    Nandroid backups are your friend!​

    Current issues

    Bluetooth
    • Calls made / received using bluetooth headsets are garbled.
    • Car connections may well be the same.
    Camera
    • fully working
    Root / Safetynet
    • The only tested and verified root solution is Magisk. Recommended: latest beta (17.1)
    • Lineage root did not work when attempted - may be re-visited in future.
    • Magisk / safetynet failing issues are beyond scope of this thread.
    • If you have Magisk problems refer to the Magisk support thread here.
    • Good thread of hints and tips for Magisk by Didgeridoohan here.
    Audio mods
    • The only tested and confirmed working audio mods are Viper4AndroidFX / V4fxmat / JamesDSP + Ainur Sauron + AML flashed in MagiskManager.
    • Viper flashed from TWRP does not work.
    Other Magisk mods
    • Font mods work fine
    Doze / Deep sleep
    • Deep sleep is easily achieved.
    • Doze works well when the system allows dozing.
    • Be aware of apps that prevent Doze from starting. These will be apps that keep the wifi or data connection enabled to allow some kind of server to run enabling remote access. Examples so far include Airdroid and AirAudio. If you want to run an app like this you will not Doze
    • To easily see if you are getting doze, look at your battery usage graph and when suspended if you have a near-horizontal line then you are dozing and getting the best possible battery savings when suspended.
    • Doze relies on an active connection to Google messaging services, so closing off all active data / wifi connections will (counter intuitively) stop doze and therefore cause more power drain. Doze manages the power states of your connections and stops wakelocks and alarms firing when suspended and batches them all together so everything fires at once minimising power usage.
    • Wifi seems to be less likely to achieve doze due to wlan_rx_wake wakelock. If this affects you try using data connection instead of wifi when suspended.
    Custom DPI
    • The rom is currently set at a non standard 420dpi. If apps are having problems change back to 480dpi.
    Themes
    • There is the basic Lineage themeing system built in.
    • There is also full OMS support, so you can install Substratum and use Substratum themes for oreo. For some themes the rom is treated as an 8.1 Pixel / Nexus rom.
    • I would not recommend mixing both theme systems. Most substratum themes seem to be built on top of a white basic theme, so if using Substratum set Lineage theme to white.
    • The first time you try to build and apply a Substratum theme it may correctly make the overlays and appear to apply them, but do nothing. If so reboot and re-apply the overlays again and they will work after this.
    Kernel
    • The current kernel is a fork of BB's AOSP 8.1. It has fast charging and added battery saving features from RR-N Buffcore but no added governors or schedulers.
    Permissive SElinux
    • The rom is currently set to be permissive i.e reporting SElinux denials but NOT enforcing them. It's simply too early to be enforcing as the rom / kernel is not finished. If it bothers you then try using a utility to flip enforcing on but be aware functionality may start to fail. If it really bothers you, do not use this rom and use one of the many other oreo roms that are set for enforcing.
    Spectrum
    • Spectrum support is enabled to allow switching between 4 preset performance profiles. (0=default Buff, 1=AOSP / OptLos stock, 2=Buff tuned slower, 3=Buff with linear tuned interactive gov).
    • Spectrum app needs downloaded from here.
    • OR install the Buffcore Aduitor from the JDC aroma package as spectrum support is built in.
    Battery
    • Battery life will currently not be quite as good as the final versions of RR-N, but still decent and usable.
    • Battery saving tips:
    • Go to Memory > apps started on boot. Disable "start at boot" and "run in background" for any apps that shouldn't be running all the time.
    • Disable Bluetooth / NFC / GPS / wifi & bluetooth scanning whenever practicable.
    • Test if wifi or data connection are more power efficient when phone is suspended. Phone connections can be wasteful in suspend when in poor reception areas. Poor wifi reception can also be wasteful. Often router bugs / mis-configurations can cause too many externally triggered wakeups on wifi .
    • Do what you can to get Doze running when suspended. Especially try NOT to use apps that keep a server running at all times as this will prevent Doze from managing your active data / wifi connection.
    • Go to configurations > misc > suspend actions. Set 2g / data off / gps off as necessary?
    • Install spectrum and choose a profile as documented in post #7.
    • Go to configurations > misc. Enable "sensor block per package".
    • Go to configurations > misc > system app remover. Remove apps not required / wasting power in background.
    • Use a kernel tuning app - Buffcore Aduitor / Kernel Adiutor / EX Kernel manager / etc. Change / tweak governor. Undervolt CPU speeds.
    Installation
    • During gapps install wifi could be difficult to get an initial connection. If you find wifi does not see any networks, try backing up to start of setup and going through again. Or reset the phone and setup will start again from the same point - hopefully picking up wifi networks.
    Not supported
    • Cannot / will not add MicroG support.
    • Xposed. Do not report bugs if you use xposed.
    • Alternate kernels. i.e. not Buffcore or Sidecore.
    Future
    • Treble-ised implementation. Erm. No. Not soon. Maybe never.

    Release 6 is uploaded now. Enjoy.

    JDC aroma flashable addon
    • This is an optional addon that needs flashed through TWRP after rom, SU and gapps.
    • Download from HERE.
    • It contains working tested versions of:
      Adaway, Arise, AudioFX, Bromide, Buffcore Aduitor, Eleven, Google Camera, Magisk, Magisk Uninstaller, Mixplorer, Snap, Toolbox, YT Vanced, Wallpaperpicker
    • The Buffcore branded version of kernel auditor is the full version. It has a settings page for boeffla wakelock blocker editing and a spectrum switcher page, so no longer need spectrum app, and other JF specific tweaks.


    Once last final gift to come.
    Wait a day or so.


    Bye.
