Introduction

LineageOS 17.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10.0, 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​
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.​
You tell me!​

Known Issues
If you are running the latest update and are not able to enroll a fingerprint you may need to clear the fingerprint data using this zip (flashable in TWRP): https://mega.nz/#!6YZV2QTY!hOYYwrbkTPfThUIJUffOEQWMosdCxeqy_7JdGpYp3AA

There are still quite a few features that are not yet completed for LineageOS 17.1, these are not bugs this is a beta release.
Any hardware related issues will be ignored if you do not provide:
a) Logcat
b) proc/last_kmsg
c) data/tombstones
d) dmesg

Also do not under any circumstances post bug reports if you are using substratum themes or unsupported magisk modules or you have performed any system modifications


Installation
Install the latest TWRP (Available Here)​
Make a full backup (just in case something goes wrong)​
Do a full wipe (Cache, Data, System)​
If this is your first time on a LineageOS ROM format data​
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 optimizes all the apps​
Do NOT install the TWRP app when prompted, this will cause a bootloop
Downloads
Latest Official releases HERE
OpenGapps HERE(ARM, 10, nano)
TWRP is availableHERE
Magisk is available HERE
Thanks

Yes. You can flash this on any Exynos variant of the A7 2016.

You can flash gapps from https://opengapps.org/ I would highly recommend you flash the pico Android 10.0 ARM variant as it is the most light and jank free GApps package.

After you boot-up, you can download and install Google apps such as the dialer app. Make sure you set the apps like the Dialer and the Messages as the default apps in Settings -> Apps and Notifications -> Default Apps

Let me know how you feel the ROM is.

Fingerprint still not working

Hi

My fingerprint sensor is not working with this OS. Why ? Will you be fixing that in a future update

And thanks for this project man. Galaxy a7 2016 seems to be a very uncommon phone because almost no custom ROMs support it.

Hey, the FP sensor works just fine here. What's the problem? Which build? Can you provide logs please?

Well it's not working on my devices (sm-a710m variant). When I open the fingerprint setup well it's like the fingerprint sensor wasn't detected (I just get stuck on the "touch sensor" screen.
I wish I could provide logs yes but how :D Using bug report ?

https://www.xda-developers.com/what-is-adb/ this should help. What we need here is a logcat. Once you've followed the instructions in the above guide,

type in the following when u open the fingerprint registration settings page:

adb logcat > log.log

and send that log to me

Thanks for the link but I know what is adb and how to use it lol. I am not (that) noob in technology.
However am sorry it looks adb is not working on my phone. Is micro g needed to have adb working ?

    Hello. I'm curious about 2 things.
    Will there be a LineageOS 18.* build for this device?

    Has someone experienced random system crashes specially when the GPS is used (e.g. LiveDisplay is set to Automatic and location is on; Google tries to access your GPS even if location is off)?
    I can provide a stack trace and a symbolized stack trace if that will help the developers.
    Yep. We have already made a lot of progress over the months and things are pretty stable now. We plan on releasing after we level out some more inconsistencies. Here are some screenshots though to keep you chugging along :D

    About GPS, I am blind without a logcat. Googling how to get a logcat should help you get one from your device.
