I would have a few questions,

- why must TWRP be used, why not Philiz touch?
- gappas - is gapps just a google service, is anything other than the goolge service lost if it is not installed?

@Sly Fox007
- why can't your rum be used for everyday use?

I apologize in bad English

Only job oft recovery is to wipe and flash. If yours does, that's OK
GApps provides services for other apps. Many people run lineageOS without GApps. It's a completely different phone then.

Thanks for your reply,
on my phone Philiz touch 6 and everything works properly.
Is it because some people don't install gapps, that it slows down the phone or is it some other reason, I would ask if you can clarify a bit?

Thanks for the answer, I solved the problem with the volume on the headphones. As for charging the battery, what values should I set?

I have one question for everyone, do you use all the apps that come by default or do you change some apps with an app that work better?

    !! THIS IS A MODIFIED ROM, wait for orgert's build if you use that normally

    New build with April 2021 Security Patch

    Download: https://github.com/Mibo5354/i9300_builds/releases
    Thank you for your excellent work.
    Can it be installed on top of Orgert's?
    If you try to dirty flash it over orgert's it'll throw an error because it's signed with different keys.

    You'll need to clean flash it.
    You could use oandbackup to backup and restore your apps.
    @Sly Fox007
    I installed your rom, what I came across is a faint tone on the headphones, can it be amplified? I tried installing m0_speaker_Volume_Boost_62_curiousrom.zip, but there was no change.
    For volume and charging issues configure with SmartPack Kernel Manager or with an init.d script (example).

    Upgrading from CyanogenMod/unofficial LineageOS without wiping

    First time LineageOS 14.1 installation on your Galaxy S III:
    • Read the official Wiki page

    • Reboot


    Reporting bugs

    Bug reports belong on JIRA. See our wiki for more information on using JIRA.

    I do not check this thread regularly for bug reports. Using JIRA makes tracking down & debugging bugs a lot easier. Feel free to use this thread to discuss bugs, though :)

    • DO NOT report bugs if you're running a custom kernel
    • DO NOT report bugs if you've modified system files
    • DO NOT report bugs if you've installed xposed and/or other mods
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • See how to submit a bug report for the appropriate place to report your bug (NOTE: the majority of bugs need to go in the BUGBASH tracker, which is only open on weekends).
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues or bugs already reported on JIRA. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

    Phone Informations
    * Lineage version
    * Gapps version
    What you did:
    * Wipe data: y/n
    * Upgrade from previous official cm build: y/n
    * Restore with titanium backup: y/n
    You're using (if yes write which one) :
    * Task killer
    * Phone cleaner / Battery enhancer apps
    * Non-stock kernel
    * Modified kernel settings
    * Other mods
    Bug info:
    * Last version it worked on

    Getting help

    You can ask for help on our subreddit, on IRC: #LineageOS on Freenode

    Flashable zips to install/uninstall root can be found here. Download the "arm" variants.

    Robotic voice during calls?
    Try using the I9300XXUGMK6 modem. Instructions are here.

    GPS Issues?
    Probably a hardware issue. Try tightening the screws on the back of the device, or see this video for more information (thanks to @baltics for the link)

    The LineageOS team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!

    A little Oreo update for you all...

    Linux 4.17 will have support for the S3/Note 2. (So with a little bit of modification, you could install a regular Linux distro and use it on your phone!). I'm working on getting the notification LED driver submitted upstream - it should land for 4.18, probably along with support for the back/menu keys.

    I've gotten audio working, but it's in need of more testing. I also manages to test the camera:

    I've managed to successfully load the firmware onto i9300/n7100's modem. Currently I'm working on rewriting the kernel driver that RIL communicates with - Samsung's old implementation was unnecessarily complex, and they made some interesting design decisions in the way the driver behaves... Hopefully that will be done relatively soon - you can watch the progress here
    I've got a few updates for you all :)

    The bad news:
    A few things are broken with the HWC (Video recording is the main one at the moment). I've been quite busy recently IRL, so haven't had much time to work on this.
    Android 7.1.2 doesn't boot, something's super weird during very early boot (it hangs waiting for threads to finish before starting the system server). Fixing this is my priority for the moment.

    The good news:
    I understand a little better how the camera HAL works, hopefully I'll be able to properly fix video recording (instead of using a hack in frameworks like we do now).
    I may even have some more free time in the next few weeks (no promises...)

    Android O has a lot of changes, including to the kernel. Google supports as far back as 3.10 (five years old!). Backporting these changes to Linux 3.0 (seven years old!) might be possible, but no matter how hard I try, the kernel will have huge numbers of vulnerabilities. Going forward, more and more effort will be required to continue maintaining it.

    So, before working on Oreo I've decided to port i9300/i9305/n7100/t0lte to mainline Linux. This is going to take a while - I started working on this in earnest at the end of last year. Currently, there's no OpenGL support - so instead I've been using a traditional Linux distribution to develop on.

    Currently, there's a pretty neat list of things working (keep in mind, I haven't even attempted to boot Android on this yet...):
    • Display + panel brightness (on S3 and Note 2)
    • USB
    • Capacitive keys
    • Hardware keys
    • Sensors (on S3 only)
    • Wifi
    • Notification LED
    • HDMI (untested)
    • Cameras (untested)
    • Touchscreen (on S3 and Note 2)
    • Charging

    Fortunately, the lima project exists for OpenGL on Mali 400. So far, it can render spinning cubes - but I don't think it's quite far enough to handle Android yet...

    That leaves the main things left to figure out:
    • GPS (will require a lot of work - reversing the protocol used...)
    • Modem (I've started working on i9300/n7100, but it's not yet booting fully)
    • BT (should be super easy)
    • Audio
    • Note 2 sensors
    • Note 2 S-Pen support

    You can see my progress in my github repository.

    Builds are up! :)
