Hi,

I appreciate your work and am looking forward to upgrade my S4 to Pie.

I am not really an Android dev, but from time to tine I try to build Android from sources (last time it was lineage 14.1 for the S4). I'm wondering whether you will (eventually) make all of your code available for people to try to rebuild your work. I can understand your frustration w.r.t. the Oreo port being used without proper credits. For me its pure curiosity, plus the (currently theoretical) option to apply simple fixes to the source code, that makes me ask for this.

Regards,

Daniel

    No.

    Sources will not be available. Only the kernel will be,as GPL forces to. People must understand that we are not kids . We say something and we keep it.

    Totally acceptable, we should be happy that we still get an working Pie for our old beloved S4 after all what happened. Keep up the good work guys @side @Buff99

    I like this I have one request in advance

    please develop an alternative to Supersu 2.8.2 R5 because I don't like magisk the same as having an app that is like SuperSu but newer and updated of course please I would like a tool option to choose system full root or systemless without it damaging the boot which is difficult to do but system mode saves more battery it could be made systemless but system mode the root app so it is not deleted

    ---------- Post added at 04:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:27 PM ----------

    I am asking for developers to please make a newer version of the SuperSu root app I could flash into this and so I can choose system mode or systemless I would be grateful to be able to use both ways any version of android

      Some of you may know me at S4 forums. As promised, I will support S4 for yet another year and bring up the Android Pie.
      So here we are. In this thread I will give you a small bite of S4 pie.
      Some of you may have some questions.... So lets get it started.

      Before first boot

      1) Is that AOSP ? Is that LineageOS ? What is it?
      - This is 99% pure AOSP sources with some LineageOS additions under the hood in order to allow our old S4 boot the Pie.

      2) Is that an Alpha-beta-gamma-etc version of Optimized LineageOS 16.0?
      - Maybe... But actually no... However it will surely be the base for my OptLos16.0 releases.

      3) What to expect from it?
      - NOTHING. ITS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR DAILY USAGE.
      IT'S JUST A PREVIEW
      ... A SMALL BITE FROM THE ANDROID 9 PIE.

      4) Whats working?
      - It boots and charges. Nothing else is working. NOTHING. The only thing you can do is explore the UI, move around and such. It's just a sneak peak.

      5) Whats NOT working ?
      - EVERYTHING. Camera, GPS, nfc, wifi, vibration....
      NOTHING WORKS.

      6) Can i report bugs ?
      - Hell no. There is no reason to report bugs. I know what's NOT working so I can fix it when I have time. Repeat with me...
      IT'S ONLY A PREVIEW.

      7) Why did you release this, you attention whore?
      - S4 is dying from one day to next. Users are kicking out their devices....Give me ONE reason to NOT release a preview... There are only a few of us left who still use S4. I want to provide all the fresh stuff I can.
      I promised(https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=77404240&postcount=1690) and I delivered.

      8) "If JDCTeam were still active they would not let you release in such early stage"
      - I know. Sorry guys. Our S4 is dying. I don't listen to "rules" when its a need.

      9) Will it ever be stable?
      - Yes. That's a promise.

      10) So how do i install it?
      - I used the latest official TWRP and simply wiped & flashed the zip. No special technique or circus.

      After first boot

      1) It's laggy. WTF mate?
      - Of course it is. And its not Pie's fault. There is much stuff missing inside. Do not expect anything.

      2) I pressed power button and it doesn't wake up
      - Yes. That's what happens to old devices. Same happened to Oreo when it was first released. I will fix it soon. Relax people. Patience. Please remove and re-insert your battery again. Set the screen time-out long so you don't encounter it.
      For now DO NOT LOCK / SLEEP YOUR DEVICE.

      3) I had random reboot / freeze / SystemUI crash
      - Yes. That's normal. Although it didn't happen to me.

      4) I cant find the recents menu
      - Neither did I. Since ADB is disabled for now i cant debug it. Could be launcher. Try Nova. Patience.... the best will come soon.

      In conclusion
      I would like to thank:
      • Every Optimized Lineage / CM user that is / was active at forums and pumped me up to bring Pie to S4.
      • Every OptLosOreo Slack member that helped me in his own way.
      • Every code stealer. I want you around guys.
      Specially:
      @Creeper36 The guy under the hood who's always supporting me for 3 years now. He is back !
      @Buff99 My other half on optlos15.1. No buff - No RR for JF - No updated kernel.
      @Patrick x The most loyal member. Been with me since day 1 of telegram.
      All others from OptLosOreo Slack team especially Splesher, JMvstheworld, RuKaDa, Tim, SalimPS , Kesaras (I wont tag em to avoid spam).

      Thanks again!
