html6405, [N5100] The firmware started, the bug with the screen rotation disappeared.
Bugs: Remained, imei, the microphone is quiet,Windows 10 sees it as n5110 when connected to pc.

bug, the problem is in the brightness slider, you have to twist it by 50℅ Maybe this is not a bug, I just compare it with android 7 .

The battery does not hold, there is no hold as in RR 5.8.5.

    Thanks,
    microphone should work now, RIL is hard to test for me because I don't own this device.
    I've made a change where I think that a problem could have been.
    I have no idea why the camera is pink in your case, if I test this rom on a n5110 it's working fine.

    Please just update via OTA and test the mic and ril again.
    If the baseband is still unknown, please provide me a modem log (just use the syslog app)
    that I can try to debug it.

    Yes I think this is the problem,
    I'm sure that we can hack this, if there's time for it.
    Okay, thank you. I hope so. :)
    thx @WolfAyron for your donation :).
    Your welcome! ;)
    the problem is in the brightness slider, you have to twist it by 50℅ Maybe this is not a bug, I just compare it with android 7 .
    If I understand correctly what you said, then I also noticed this. If I use the brightness slider in the pull down notification panel, the 50% does not equal to the 50% that I set on the notification bar. Setting the brightness by sliding my finger on the notification bar to the half of the screen, it sets the Brightness in Settings or in notification panel to apprx. 86%.

    The battery does not hold, there is no hold as in RR 5.8.5.
    I also noticed, that the battery runs out pretty fast. I charged the device to 100%, unplugged, went to sleep and in the morning the battery was at 87%!
    Perhaps something does keep the CPU running in background?
    I installed BetterBatteryStats, so hopefully I'll be able to provide some useful information.

    And one more thing I also experience the 2-3 sec screen wake delay. It was also present in Lineage Android 7.1.2.

    I can improve the auto brightness, just have to define a new array for this,
    many things run different than in android 7.
    The battery could suffer under a the randomly restarting ril deamon.

    html6405, [N5100] Hello, I think we still need to work on optimizing the battery, for example, look at the n5100 core on RR 5.8.5, the microphone is quiet and differs from the drain.
    Unfortunately, there is no time to send a log.
    Bugs: Does not see imei, GPS, Bug with Open Gaps arm / nano writes "error sending voice analysis" I think it will be necessary to change the battery, in rr5.8.5 it holds a charge. :unsure:

    There is slight problem even with latest update today when you end apps they not actually ending but still in advance task killer. You will see every thing is still running even if you end them.

    What do you you mean should I look? RR5.8.5 bases on LOS14.1 and is different.
    the microphone is quiet and differs from the drain.
    Isnt it working with the last update?
    Does not see imei
    WIth the recent version? Actually it will get hard to get this running without any logs or a n5100,
    and the frequently starting ril deamon will consumer much more battery,
    so we could disable it for the moment or one of you has to provide me with logs.
    The best solutions would be some donations, then I will buy a n5100 for my own and could better work on it..

    Update 24.02.2021:
    • Fixed front camera and videorecording for it, had to make changes in Kernel and camera hal.
    • You have to set the front camera resolution to SD 480P!
    • Fixed GPS for N5110 and N5100, maybe RIL is also now fixed, I can't test it.
    • Fixed some Selinux issues.
    • Removed open camera because someone complained about it, included gCam.
    • Improved battery performance through some optimizations (for example wifi)

      Hello!
      Great job with this ROM, it made me look for a new fancy s pen for this ancient monster.
      Is there a way to remap the s pen button? Now it's set up as back and this makes it unusable with note taking apps cause instead of activating the action I set it up for on the app it just goes back or closes it :LOL:

      Well, I would really like to be a part of this. So can you make a summary of what needs to be done in order to get LOS 18 to boot? And probably a simple task so that I can see whether I can help with code :)
      I've made already the HAL's, device tree's + Kernel almost ready (there are some drivers missing, but this won't be a big thing), so it's prepaired.

      The bigger thing will be to get rid of the text relocations and some more hack's to get GPS and RIL working.
      (N5100 RIL BLOB's should also be ready, N5120 need's many frameworks_opt_telephony hack's).
      So to bring it up I won't need any help, I think it would take more time to explain someone what's to do next than if I would do it by my own.

      But where I could use help is to hack the GPS BLOBS to make them compatible for the n5100 and n5110,
      debug the kernel panics and fix them, there are already many fixed, but there will be much more.
      So the Kernel is the most important part to get a stable ROM.

      The next thing where I would appreciate help is to write down all selinux rules,
      this is alway's much work (but this step is only important as soon the ROM is stable).

      So if you're interested, you could help me with these things, but I will wait until there are some donations, I will only proceed on android 11 as soon I'm "zero" (I paid more for devices than I got), the demand is not high enough at the moment.

      Hi,

      here you can find my version for the n5120 on LineageOS 16.0.
      At first I want to thank @forkbomb444, @rINanDO, @ChronoMonochrome and all the others who are working on the exynos 4 devices, also big thanks to @prkfsz for donating me a n5120 and also the shipping cost.
      Also big thx to @cngbrick for donating a n5100.

      It already took me a few hundred hours and it will become more and more to support you with great updates.
      it's mostly based on my work on for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N80XX) devices.


      Here you can see how far everything is working:

      Boot
      Audio
      Bluetooth
      Graphics
      Main camera
      Wifi
      USB
      Video playback (HW/SW)
      OTA Updates
      RIL
      GPS, not sure if completely
      Tethering via USB, WIFI and Bluetooth
      consumerir transmitter
      Sensors
      • Bluetooth headset in a mobile call
      • Some apps because of deconding issues
      • GPS fix, but navigating is working fine
      • Maybe more
      If you are going to use Gapps,
      I recommend to use the pico package!
      https://opengapps.org/
      For the others, you can use microG if you want, I've enabled signature spoofing.

      If you want to pass the safety net check, root your device with magisk.

      Do you like my work?
      Than you can simply hit the thanks button and consider to spend me a coffee or a beer,
      I'm doing this in my free time and it also costs a lot of money to buy hardware.
      donate

      You could use a gps.conf from https://app.box.com/s/w57s1v1n3hie7l5lk28i for your location and replace /system/etc/gps.conf.
      Or you try GPS Server Optimizer app for a faster 3D fix.
      For both methods you need root rights.
      If you plan to encrypt your device, the first step is to backup all your important stuff.

      Reboot into recovery and choose:

      Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Data (check)
      Choose "Repair or Change File System" and afterwards "Resize File System".
      After this step, choose Reboot System and you can start to encrypt your drive.
      If you can't find this option in the settings by your own, use the search function and type "encryption" and you can start.

      but I hope this gets fixed.
      I won't promise this, because it's really much work to write down all rules and test everything,
      but we will see.

      Like on my other android 9 roms the people wanted as fast as possible android 11, so it also depends on what all people want to have.
      - The ROM is signed with userdebug keys. This severely reduces security as well, allowing anyone to replace (update) system apps.
      We only can sign it as user build, when we have all selinux rules written, so it depends on point one ;).
      - Encryption did not work for me. The logcat says something along the lines "no space for crypto footer". This is a known problem and I am unsure if the ROM developer can do something about it. Would be nice if it " just works"
      Yes this could be, but I know how to fix this, made this already for the Note 10.1 devices working.
      - I dislike the inclusion of several non-lineage apps in the system. The inclusion of Magisk Manager is not useful, as you still have to flash the install zip, which will install Magisk Manager already. I distrust this "Via" web browser and see it as redundant, as the Lineage browser is included as well
      Magisk Manger is included, because we need Magisk root to pass the safetynet check, it's more as a pointer to show the people how to root.
      (There were hundred questions how to root on my other roms, they dont read the initial post...)

      If we will have selinux enforcing once, I will remove it.

      Via is included because of many complaints of the surfing speed with the jelly browser, maybe I will remove it, I will think about it.

      OpenCamera is included because the gCam (lineage camera) is crashing sometimes, there are still problems with the camera hal, had to overwork it completely to even get the main camera working.
      While no deal braker, I would focus on this phenomenon as well.
      Hmm ok, we could play around with the cpu govenour, but this will influence the battery time as well, but at first I have to fix many other problems.
      Lineage 18.0 / Android 11 ETA wen?
      Haha I know that very soon many people will ask.
      You all will make the choice if i should concentrate on security things or bring android 11 up,
      I exactly know how it runs because I've brought it already to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 devices ;) (same chipset...).
      The firmware makes real fun, but believe me, LOS16.0 runs much more smooth.
      Anyway, I will bring it up sooner or later, for me is more important to provide you a stable LOS16.0.

      Thousand thanks to @cngbrick, he donated a n5100 to facilitate my development on the 3G version! :love:

      Thanks for your ROM. Tried to install it on N5110, but nothing worked, have you built it for this version? If not yet, than may I be able to change updater-script somehow? Want to test it very much, thanks.
      This version is for the n5120, but just wait a little bit,
      i will try to build a version for the n5110,
      I dont own this device.
      4
      Now I've bought a n5110 by myself (about 55€...), hopefully there will be some donations so that I can also buy a n5100 to support 3G in future.
      These devices are very rare to buy and some people still want 100€ for a n5100,
      but we will see if I can find something cheap.
