Tried installing the latest LOS 16 but the installation failed with Error:7.
I've read in this thread that a too old version of TWRP could be the culprit, however did actually use the newest version v3.4.
I rolled back to TWRP v3.3 after which I successfully installed LOS.

    Introduction

    LineageOS 16.0 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9.0 (Pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device. The port for the Exynos7580 based devices was created by @Stricted and I along with many contributions from other people in the Android community.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

    What works
    Calls, SMS, Mobile Data
    Camera
    NFC
    WiFi
    Bluetooth
    Torch
    Sensors
    GPS
    SELinux Enforcing
    HWC​
    What doesn't work
    IMS services (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc). Samsung has their own proprietary implementation. It is not really possible to easily port that to LineageOS.
    Installation
    Install the latest TWRP (Available Here)
    Make a full backup (just in case something goes wrong)
    Do a full wipe (Cache, Dalvik Cache, Data, System)
    Download the latest LOS build and transfer it to your phone
    Install LOS
    If you are installing GApps do it at the same time (preferably in the same install queue)
    And finally boot, the first boot can take several minutes as it optimises all the apps
    Downloads
    Latest official releases HERE
    Latest unoficial releases are uploaded HERE

    Hi,

    So it finally happened, the hard work that @Stricted and I have put in has meant we are finally going official:
    https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/a3xelte

    Official builds will start tonight and should be available tomorrow, you will not be able to dirty flash the official builds until you have flashed a migration zip that I need to create so please wait a couple of days for me to test the update path. You can always do a clean flash if you want to switch to the official branch sooner.

    Best regards,
    Danny

    To update to official from my relases:

    Download the migration zip attached to this post.
    Download the latest nightly: https://download.lineageos.org/a3xelte

    Flash the migration zip and the official nightly in the same zip queue in TWRP.

    Reboot, enjoy.

    Regards,
    Danny

    Hi,

    I'm uploading a new release now.

    Along with the usual security updates I finally fixed HWC on our devices (many hours of reverse engineering and debugging went in to this fix with lots of help from @Stricted), so from this release you can expect a smoother UI and you should see some power savings!

    I spend a lot of my free time bringing these improvements to our devices, if anyone feels like buying me a coffee or a beer my paypal donation address is:

    Code:
    Changes in the 07/07/2019 release:
    [INDENT]Fixed HWC (Improves UI fluidity and power usage)
    SELinux cleanup (thanks [user=8184192]@Stricted[/user])
    Migrate to new HIDL LiveDisplay and Touch HALs (thanks [user=8184192]@Stricted[/user])
    July Android Security Patch and other LOS updates[/INDENT]

    Regards,
    Danny

    @Mobb_Deep73 and @silokki WiFi tethering should be fixed in the next OTA. ;)
