Where to Get Stock Samsung OS

My S5 is SM-G900F. Where can I find the most recent stock OS?...

On XDA [Tool] Frija - Samsung firmware downloader/checker or Samsung Firmware Downloader to download directly from the Samsung servers.

Their paywall policies varies apparently randomly depending on the device & age of the OS but I used both sammobile.com & updato.com to download stock Samsung OS. Some users recommend samfw.com.

They all have flashing instructions using Odin3 in their respective download pages.

@curiousrom @kurtn after a few reboots in the process I finally managed to backup and then wipe everything.
Now whenever I try to flash a ROM it gets stuck or it reboots so I guess this is the end of my S5.
Let's search for a new phone I can afford that supports LOS.

It has been amazing to use such a magnificent ROM. Thank you so much @haggertk for your awesome work.

Goodbye fellow S5ers.

So, did you try to flash the most recent stock Samsung OS with Odin3 or not? :unsure:

If so, does it work properly or not?

I have also experienced crashes when the system was accessing the external SD card more frequently than usual.

I can confirm that the kernel from Luis' crdroid ROM does not show this behavior.

For those who want a more convenient way to fix their filesystem than using a Windows PC: You can use TWRP for that.
You find the repair option under Wipe -> Advanced Wipe -> Repair Filesystem
For me it sometimes worked only after the second attempt.

Hello guys! Can you please let me know the Linux kernel version of this ROM as I would like to install in on my S5 in order to use it as a portable checkra1n device for jailbreaking iOS. Unfortunately, the most recent official kernel (from the 6.0.1 update) does not work and checkra1n returns an error. Thank you!
 
S5 LineageOS 17.1 Stock Kernel Version

Hello guys! Can you please let me know the Linux kernel version of this ROM as I would like to install in on my S5 in order to use it as a portable checkra1n device for jailbreaking iOS. Unfortunately, the most recent official kernel (from the 6.0.1 update) does not work and checkra1n returns an error. Thank you!

As you can see in the attached screenshot of > Settings > About phone > Android version, on S5 LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-03-14 it says:

Kernel version
3.4.113-lineageos-gf6e14b9
#1 Sun Mar 14 04:10:29 UTC 2021

Kernel source code: https://github.com/LineageOS/android_kernel_samsung_msm8974/tree/lineage-17.1

I have also experienced crashes when the system was accessing the external SD card more frequently than usual...

I don't have that issue when transferring hundreds of photos & videos from internal sdcard/DCIM/Camera to external SD Card/DCIM/Camera.

I just moved without issue 326 files for a total of 2.69 GiB @ 19 Mib/s using the awesome MiXplorer file manager as you can see in the attachment.

That's on a Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-03-14 + Open GApps Pico + Magisk 22 + TWRP 3.5.0 recovery and a SanDisk Ultra 64GB microSDXC UHS-I Card Class 10 formatted in the S5 itself in November 2020 using the stock LineageOS Files explorer & set as portable storage.

I was not trying to troubleshoot the issue here, but merely pointing other users to an easier fix when their filesystem is corrupted by this issue.

That said, because you provided such good info, I might as well:
I am using s a Galaxy S5 G900F LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-02-21 + Open GApps Pico + Magisk 22 + TWRP 3.4.0-0 recovery and a Kingston Canvas Go! Plus class V30 A2 microSD formatted via TWRP, also set as portable storage.

I experienced this several times a day over at least three consecutive lineage releases. Also for those wondering, the behavior was the same on FAT32 and exFAT.

I have captured a few last-kmsg files. When I find time I intend to file a bug report. After checking if the bug occurs in the latest release of course.

I see there are multiple changes in store related to the external SD card in the build scheduled for this weekend. Will be interested to see if this resolves my continuing issues with system crash during app use of the SD card and seemingly related need to "repair" the SD card.

S5 LineageOS 17.1 klte & Variants Update 2021-03-28 - Camera Option Save to SD Card is Back

I OTA updated my Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-03-14 + Open GApps Pico + Magisk 22.0 + TWRP 3.5.1_9-0 recovery to build 2021-03-28 & everything went smoothly except that Magisk 22.0 did not survive the update.

I tried to uninstall & re-install the Magisk app as described in the Magisk help here but it did not work.

It was the same as posted previously in Magisk 22.0 Not Surviving OTA Update when OTA updating to 2021-02-28: I had to rename Magisk-v22.0.apk to Magisk-v22.0.zip & flash it with TWRP.

Of note the option in stock Camera (Snap) > Settings > Storage > SD Card is back after a 4 months hiatus as you can see in the attachment.

If selected it saves the photos & videos in the normal legacy path /external sdcard/DCIM/Camera/ instead of /external sdcard/Android/Data/org.lineageos.snap/Files/ as it did before it was disabled.

You can see the changes included in this update in https://download.lineageos.org/klte/changes/.

Or check on your device in the built-in Settings > System > Advanced > Updater > 3-dots > Changelog which will open in a mobile browser the same page as above.

Since that page changes all the time I attached a screenshot for posterity.

Thank you Mr. haggertk & to the entire LineageOS Team for supporting our S5's. :cool: 👍

Your problems with loss of Magisk on an OTA update are likely due to Magisk 22.0. I just did an OTA update to the 2021-03-14 build on my G900T with Magisk 21.4, and Magisk survived. I am on TWRP 3.5.0_9-0 though.

If you want to revert Magisk to 21.4, the custom channel URL is https://raw.githubusercontent.com/t...d863d3a15c6a2276b1061a280ece80ed7/stable.json

I believe the difference between the two Magisk versions is mostly a package change to merge Magisk and Magisk Manager into a single APK.

Magisk 21.4 survived updates on my S5 G900M, Magisk 22.0 not with both TWRP 3.5.0 as I posted previously and 3.5.1_9-0.

It's a minor annoyance, not worth rolling back Magisk for me.

BTW Magisk 21.1 Beta also did not survive updates as I posted way back in December here.

I noticed that the Camera's thumbnail preview does not work in HDR mode.

HDR preview works for my 900F. Have you still image at SD?
Yes. On build 2021-03-28 try close the Camera app, clear the Camera from Recents, start Camera, switch to HDR, take a picture: no thumbnail for me.

But the photo is successfully saved to /external sdcard I.D./DCIM/Camera/.

Edit: the thumbnail appears but only after a couple of seconds.

Maybe it's because I have 4,465 photos & videos in /external sdcard I.D./DCIM/Camera/ @ the present. :unsure:

This made me lol so hard, I spilled my morning coffee. 😂

Ha-ha.

It's now 4,486 files in the Camera folder as you can see in the attached screenshot of Simple Gallery Pro.

My external hard drive was full. It broke my heart but today I had to delete a bunch of awesome MotoGP races to make some room for them. :cry:

Official LineageOS 18.1 Launched!

FYI the Official LineageOS 18.1 is launched as you can read in this official blog: Changelog 25 - Exemplary Eleven, Ravishing Recorder, Captivating Calendar, Beaming Backup

The first batch of builds should be available starting 2021-04-01 if all goes well with with the LineageOS automated builder. Click on nightly even if the lineage-16.0 label has not been updated yet.

Note that the Galaxy S5 klte family is not included in the initial promotion but should follow eventually.

Edit: haggertk replied to me in the S5 unofficial 18.1 thread:

I'll probably ship in the coming week. They're ready, but I don't want to be the first set our the door on the infra. As it is, we're already flying this thing in direct law tonight.

    Official LineageOS 18.1 for the Galaxy S5 klte family Launched!

    FYI these haggertk's commits are now marked as Merged so it should be available in the next update if all goes well with the Lineage automated builder:
    And it's confirmed in the LineageOS build target list and the wiki pages https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/ also.

    The respective wiki pages include an upgrade guide.

    Thank you to the Lineage Team & Mr. haggertk for keeping our old S5 up to date. :cool: 👍

    S5 LineageOS 17.1 klte & Variants Update 2021-04-18 - Bump Security

    I OTA updated my Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-04-11 + Open GApps Pico + Magisk 22.1 + TWRP 3.5.2_9-0 recovery to build 2021-04-18 & everything went smoothly including Magisk 22.1 surviving the update.

    After the automatic reboot as seen in the screenshot > Settings > About phone > press on Android version > Android security patch level: April 5, 2021.

    The Vendor security patch level remains @ August 1, 2017 because the vendor is Samsung & it is not publishing security patches for it's S5 proprietary hardware related blobs anymore since August 2017.

    There are a bunch of changes in this update as you can see in https://download.lineageos.org/klte/changes/ but the ones with the word "intel" do not concern the S5.

    The klteduos 20210418 build failed as you can see in the LineageOS automated builder here so better luck next week.

    No official LineageOS 18.1 yet for the klte family until these haggertk's commits are marked as Merged top left instead of Active so patience is required:

    Hello friends,
    I am using the tuned kernel for screen flickering problem. Will it work if I upgrade from 17.1 to 18.1
    18.1 will most likely overwrite tuned kernel when you upgrade. @fbs will prolly update to support android R when LOS 18.1 klte officially comes out.
    3
    Why o why has my screen have to break now?

    Btw the last links with
    Yet another ...
    And where the ...
    I don't get it. What are these links and things I can see there?
    Gerrit is the code review System used by lineageOS. Each change in source code has to be approved in that system, before changes get merged to official source code. The linked changes are not for lineageOS source code, but for the build servers. Hudson/build targets tells the build server, what device and version to build.
    3
    18.1 official is out for klte. The day has come!

    If you're looking for Google apps, MindTheGApps is the only one recommend for Android 11 atm. Our device is ARM, not ARM64. Don't forget to make a backup.

    S5 LineageOS 17.1 klte & Variants Update 2021-04-11 - Magisk 22.1 Survives!

    FYI I OTA updated my Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-04-04 + Open GApps Pico + Magisk 22.1 + TWRP 3.5.2_9-0 recovery to build 2021-04-11 & everything went smoothly including Magisk 22.1 surviving the update.

    There is no changes compared to build 2021-04-04 as you can see in https://download.lineageos.org/klte/changes/ but I wanted to test the TWRP & Magisk updates vs. OTA.

    Before the OTA update made a full TWRP backup then I used TWRP 3.5.1_9-0 to update to TWRP 3.5.2_9-0 as described in How To Update TWRP Using TWRP Itself then rebooted to recovery to check the version and finally to System. (screenshots). Changelog https://twrp.me/

    I used the installed Magisk 22.0 app to update it to Magisk 22.1 app, then Direct install method to update Magisk itself to 22.1. (screenshots) Changelog: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases.

    Of note in that Magisk page it says this but it was not my case: "RESTORE THE EXISTING MAGISK MANAGER BACK TO NORMAL BEFORE UPGRADING IF HIDDEN!".
    ***

    I was hoping for an upgrade to official LineageOS 18.1 or a security bump on 17.1 but that will have to wait for the next update I guess.

    Edit: FYI the LineageOS S5 klte family maintainer created a new thread here:

    [ROM][OFFICIAL][11] LineageOS 18.1 for Samsung Galaxy S5 (klte*)
    ***
    Code:
    #include "std_disclaimer.h"
    /*
    * Your warranty is now void.
    *
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    */

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of android, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock android for your device.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. If you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit the Wiki.

    Important Info
    WARNING: the official 17.1 build 20201101 is defective, causing a bootloop & got removed from the Lineage servers. The ROMs affected are klte, klteduos & kltedv.

    If you updated to 20201101 and are caught in a bootloop as reported by several S5 users in the pages #3 of this thread and the following pages: flash an older version like 20201025 without wiping anything (a.k.a. dirty flash) and you will not lose your aps & settings:

    1- On the S5 you can simulate a battery removal if you press Volume down + Power button for 10-20 seconds while frozen, in bootloop or Download Mode: the S5 goes black & turns off.

    If you keep on pressing the buttons until the Samsung bootloader splash screen appears & release them then S5 should reboot in System.

    Or remove the battery to turn it off.

    2- With the S5 turned off hold Volume Up + Home + Power to boot in recovery and either sideload the older version or copy to the S5 the older build as MTP is enabled by default in TWRP and flash it from there.
    ***

    To flash this rom you need TWRP version 3.3.1-0 or newer or the Lineage Recovery specific to your device model.

    Some TWRP 3.4.0 users reported fail to install LineageOS after a wipe. Rebooting to TWRP recovery after the wipe solves this issue.

    The adb command adb reboot sideload does not work in TWRP for the S5 as if you sideload a file afterwards it will fail as I tested myself with this error message: " command is: 'sideload' and there is no value". You must manually select in TWRP > Advanced > ADB Sideload > swipe to begin sideload then you can sideload your file. You must do the same for each files if you sideload more than one.

    The S5 maintainer haggertk recommends not choosing Internal storage for the Micro SD card (adoptable storage) when formatting the card in the device and posted about it here: "...my opinion is no one should use adoptable storage. It's a fragile mess and always has been since Google explicitly does not care about sdcards.".

    Some S5 17.1 users reported being stuck in an endless boot animation after restoring a 17.1 TWRP backup. A workaround tested by @wireroot & posted here is to flash the original LineageOS ROM that you were running when you made that backup right after the restore operation. This was confirmed by @jdrch in his post here.

    An other possible workaround is to flash "fix_rootfs_label.zip" that you can find here right after restoring the TWRP backup. Note: this was NOT confirmed yet by S5 users in this thread.

    EFS Partition Restore - @Eadn33 reported here in the old 16.0 thread that he could not restore the EFS partition with TWRP 3.4.0 but could with TWRP 3.3.1-0 on his S5 G900V. Other models may have that problem also but no other reports so far. See EFS Partition Backup - No Service, No IMEI & No SIM Card Fix for explantions.

    Warning: do NOT select install TWRP app in TWRP as it will cause a bootloop.


    Download Links
    The Galaxy S5 klte variants currently supported by LineageOS are:

    klte - SM-G900F, SM-G900M, SM-G900R4, SM-G900R7, SM-G900T, SM-G900V, SM-G900W8
    klteactivexx - SM-G870A, SM-G870F
    kltechn - SM-G9006V, SM-G9008V
    kltechnduo - SM-G9006W, SM-G9008W
    klteduos - SM-G900FD, SM-G900MD
    kltedv - SM-G900I, SM-G900P
    kltekdi - SCL-23, SC-04F
    kltekor - SM-G900K, SM-G900L, SM-G900S

    Each respective download pages include a link to the official clean installation instructions and a link to Device info which includes a link about how to upgrade to a higher version. For example from official 16.0 to official 17.1 without losing your settings & apps.

    The wiki mentions only the Lineage recovery but several S5 users reported successful clean install or 16.0 > 17.1 upgrading while using TWRP instead.

    TWRP: https://twrp.me/samsung/samsunggalaxys5qualcomm.html

    Google apps (Optional. The S5 requires the ARM for Android 10 version because LineageOS 17.1 is based on Android 10 & the S5's ARM architecture.): https://wiki.lineageos.org/gapps.html

    As a rule of thumb the larger the Open GApps package, the more chance of a problem on first boot with the ever changing privapp-permissions.

    I prefer the smaller Pico package & just add the extra apps I need from Play Store and https://f-droid.org/ See Open GApps Package Comparison

    Some users prefer not installing any Gapps packages & use the Aurora Store v3 - a FOSS Google Play client to download apps from Play Store. Note that some apps may require the Google Play Services & librairies which are included in the Gapps packages & may not work properly or will not get timely notifications because of it.

    Root (Optional): The LineageOS AddonSU and Privacy Guard are deprecated in 17.1. :(

    Magisk which is the only root solution for 17.1 @ the present is not supported by LineageOS. See Magisk download & Installation instructions by the Magisk dev & also the excellent Magisk and MagiskHide Installation and Troubleshooting guide by @Didgeridoohan. Thread on XDA: Magisk General Support / Discussion.

    Magisk can be installed later at anytime so it's not necessary to install it during the initial installation of LineageOS.

    Bug Reporting
    If a bug is discovered, confirm it with other users in this thread & include your device model & build date (for ex. lineage-17.1-20201025-nightly-klte), then report it following the LineageOS wiki here: https://wiki.lineageos.org/bugreport-howto.html

    Known Bugs - Known Issues
    1- On an encrypted S5 17.1 + Gapps if Secure Startup is enabled it may fail to reboot or take a very long time to boot. See bug report here.

    From haggert's post here:

    ...there is some kind of timeout that hits ALL legacy devices - addition of gapps is seemingly enough to push it over the edge. Aside from first boot or upgrade, sometimes you'll be able to get in and sometimes not. I bet if you are able to decrypt in twrp and delete dalvik cache you'll get fully booted again.

    Bottom line, if you are encrypted, make sure to disable secure startup (go change the pin/pattern/password, even to the same thing, and say that you do not want to have to answer for the device to start). {bold by me}

    2- Not a bug really but some S5 users reported fail to boot on 17.1 or no SIM card recognized because they had an older baseband/modem. See S5 Odin Flashable Modem & Bootloader.

    Haggertk posted here about 17.1: "...I'm willing to bet that you have some L or earlier baseband. Except for the activexx build, you have to be running M baseband now." {bolding by him}.

    3- Google Backup cannot be restored if you use a 4x4, 5x5 or 6x6 lock screen pattern in LineageOS instead of the Android default 3x3 pattern. See the bug report here.

    4- Display accepts touch input while off due to proximity and screen does not turn back on after call bug report by @Eadn33. The bug was fixed with klte family builds 2020-11-13 or newer. Thank you Mr. haggertk.

    5- SMS reception notification delay depends on doze / unlock state by @wireroot. He posted about it in this thread here.

    6- Bluetooth Crashing - Some users reported having issues with Bluetooth in this thread: @KrautHolg here, @liquidraver here and here, @pmduper here, @navcar here and included a logcat, @badesh here and here, @mrmarioman who posted here.

    @KrautHolg created a report in the LineageOS bug tracker with a logcat here: Bluetooth repeatedly crashes with multiple devices for the S5 klte LineageOS 17.1.

    OTOH @Eadn33 reported here that he does not have any problems "with a soundbar, music and hands free in car , or scan tool for car". I tested for 2 hours listening to music with Bluetooth headphones, received a call & also had no problems on my S5 G900M klte.

    So far nobody created a Bluetooth bug report with an attached logcat in the LineageOS bug tracker for the S5 running LineageOS 17.1. See this post about how to create one: S5 Bluetooth Crashing Bug Report?

    7- Fingerprint Scanner: Some S5 users reported not being able to register their fingerprints in > Settings > Security > Fingerprint. Contrary to the Lineage instructions the finger must be swiped down & not just "Touch the sensor". See the screenshot & the linked trick if you still can't register the fingerprint in S5 G900F Fingerprint Issue.

    Not a bug but some users reported the scanner not working on older basebands but working after updating it like @jackass5 in his post here. See S5 Odin Flashable Modem & Bootloader.

    Several users, including me, reported a higher battery usage after registering some fingerprints. See S5 Screen Lock Fingerprint Battery Tests @ Idle - BetterBatteryStat

    8- Camera (Snap) > Settings > Storage > if you select SD Card the photos are saved to /external sdcard I.D./Android/Data/org.lineageos.snap/Files/ but taping on the thumbnail of the photo you just took mistakenly opens /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera/. Additionally, Gallery does not see that Files folder but a third-party app like Simple Gallery Pro that does show the Files album.

    In LineageOS 17.1 build 2020-11-23 or newer the SD Card option was deleted instead of fixing the bug. See LineageOS 17.1 - In Camera the Option Save to SD Card has Been Removed in this thread.

    9- Call Forwarding Not Working - In both the stock Phone app or when dialing a code it's broken. See this post that includes a link to a bug report: S5 klte LineageOS 17.1 Call Forwarding Error. Thanks to @uyguremre for reporting the issue here.

    S5 U.I. Speed-Up Tip: Try those as fast as you can before the tweak: expand/close notification curtain, app drawer & scroll, recent apps & scroll, horizontal scroll fast between hope pages if you have a few, open Settings & scroll, etc.

    Then: Settings > Accessibility > enable Remove animations.

    Test again as you did before. Profit!

    Credits
    The S5 klte + variants LineageOS maintainer is @haggertk who valiantly supported the S5 klte family through LineageOS 14.1, 15.1, 16.0 & now 17.1. Big thanks for his perseverance & dedication. :cool:👍

    He is also one of the 9 LineageOS directors and maintains other devices as well as you can see in https://wiki.lineageos.org/contributors.html

    Many thanks also to the LineageOS team and all the contributors out there in the community that made the Lineage project possible. You can see their names or nicknames in the zoomable & searchable > Settings > About phone > Contributors.

    Haggertk seemed uninterested in creating an S5 17.1 tread on XDA or he is too busy maybe so I went ahead and created one using part of the OP of his old S5 LineageOS 15.x thread. If he wants a transfer of this thread's ownership I will gladly do it.

    FYI these haggertk's commits are now marked as Merged so it should be available in the next update if all goes well with the Lineage automated builder:
    And it's confirmed in the LineageOS build target list and the wiki pages https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/ also.

    The respective wiki pages include an upgrade guide.

    Thank you to the Lineage Team & Mr. haggertk for keeping our old S5 up to date. :cool: 👍

    S5 LineageOS 17.1 klte & Variants Update 2021-01-24

    I updated my Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-01-17 + Open GApps Pico + Magisk 21.4 Stable + Magisk Manager 8.0.7 & TWRP 3.5.0 to build 2021-01-24 via the built-in OTA Updater: everything went smoothly as usual & Magisk survived the update.

    Some of the changes that you can see in https://download.lineageos.org/klte/changes/ do not concern the S5 klte family (Motoactions, fastcharge & nvidia) and the others like the ones concerning android_packages_apps_ThemePicker (Settings > Display > Styles & wallpapers) are not dramatic but I updated anyway to be able to post in this thread.

    Thank you Mr. haggertk & to the entire LineageOS Team for supporting our S5's. :cool: 👍

    S5 LineageOS 17.1 klte & Variants Update 2021-02-14

    I updated my Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-02-07 + Open GApps Pico + Magisk 21.4 Stable + Magisk Manager 8.0.7 & TWRP 3.5.0 to build 2021-02-14 via the built-in OTA Updater: everything went smoothly as usual & Magisk survived the update.

    There are no important changes except maybe some time zone stuff for certain regions as you can see in https://download.lineageos.org/klte/changes/ but I updated anyway so I could post about it here.

    Thank you Mr. haggertk & to the entire LineageOS Team for supporting our S5's. :cool: 👍
