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?

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.

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?

S3 Boosting Speaker Volume - TWRP Flashable Zip



Once during a call the other person could barely hear me. Same when trying with the Record app. After wasting time tweaking the settings to no avail I used a vacuum cleaner on the little mic hole next to the USB port et voilà! A simple pocket lint problem. Just don't use max vacuum power so not to damage the rear speaker.

All the stuff below done on S3 i9300 running 100% stock LineageOS 14.1 build 2018-08-03, Open Gapps Pico & Lineage ARM super user add-on. No custom kernel.

Turning on the stock AudioFX app you can create a Custom profile by dragging up the bars as seen in the screenshot and when listing using the stock Music app you can toggle off/on AudioFX to hear the small speaker volume boost.
View attachment 4564709

Following this tip made in this thread a while ago:



@ArdaCsknn and @Elton47 are probably right as I read a comment by an other user about getting distortions at 63. So what I did:

1- Disable AudioFX & listen to a song using the LineageOS stock Music app at max volume on speaker.
2- Using a root enabled file explorer make a backup of /system/etc/sound/m0
3- Using a root enabled text editor like the excellent QuickEdit open /system/etc/sound/m0.
4- Under <device name="speaker"> replace 57 by 62 in this line: <ctl name="Speaker Volume" val="57"/> & Save.
5- Hard restart the S3 & listen to the same song & the speaker volume is noticeably louder.

For people not rooted (or lazy) I made these 2 TWRP recovery flashable zip attached to this message (one to boost & the other to return to stock) using the ZIPme app. Note that both speaker boost volume methods will not survive a LineageOS update & must be done again after a firmware flash.

Thanks :good: @ArdaCsknn for the detailed post & screenshot but I want to stick to 100% stock LineageOS & it's kernel and these 2 methods do exactly the same as the Boeffla kernel sound tweak does in this case.

A link to this post was added to LineageOS S3 i9300 Known Issues Workarounds.

BTW the LineageOS 14.1 for S3 i9300 build 2018-08-03 update has nothing of value for the S3 really & if you are running 2018-07-26 it's not worth the trouble as seen in https://download.lineageos.org/i9300/changes/ . I did update just so I can test & post in this thread while using the current latest version.
***

I know this is an old post, but I wanted to highlight this amazing solution to the low speaker volume problem. The .zip flash on TWRP works perfectly, thank you so much !

Now, does anyone know how to use the top-ear-speaker at the same time as the main speaker to get a bit more volume ? I know it's not great for longevity, but it's an old S3 after all...

S3 Boosting Earpiece Volume

You are welcome.

First try to clean the earpiece grid with some cotton and a little bit of alcool after using a vacuum cleaner.

Follow the instructions in the post you quoted and in the file /system/etc/sound/m0 modify <device name="earpiece"> <ctl name="Output Volume" val="57"/>: replace 57 by 62, save & reboot.

Thank you so much for your answer. Sorry for the confusion : I meant using the earpiece at the same time as the main speaker, to get some "stereo" effect (but actually the goal is to get more volume because it's firing in front of you). I know many other devices have stereo mods, but I don't think the S3 does.
Thank you :)

Maybe it's possible by modifying the mixer_paths.xml.

Check this post made for the S5 for inspiration but don't download & flash files from that thread!

I did not search thoroughly the XDA forum for similar threads for the S III.

    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.

    Getting help

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

    F.A.Q.
    Root?
    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:
    Yq7qXCO.jpg


    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...)

    Hi!

    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.
