ROM works without restrictions. It is not fully translated into Polish yet. Several applications can not install on Android 10 like: Disa, Messenger, Duo ... The system works fast. I keep looking for mistakes so that I won't find them. Thank you!

SD-Card detected flawlessly

  1. TWRP 3.2.3 (TWRP-3.2.3-lineage-15.1_j1_20181016_serranove3g.tar)
    EDIT: Correct TWRP is here https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...overy-samsung-galaxy-s4-mini-ve-unof-t3955165
  2. Full Wipe + Format
  3. Android 10 (lineage-17.0-20191208-UNOFFICIAL-serranovelte.zip)
  4. GAppsPico (open_gapps-arm-10.0-pico-20190928-BETA.zip)
Seamless procedure :good:

I used an old lying-around 2GB-card as source for installing the zips.
It was presented in "Storage" as expected.

Very stable

I've been testing ROM extensively. No crashes so far. Looks very stable.
Amazing work :good:

"Trust" doesn't seem to be working as I'm used to.
More specifically I was looking for the Trust icon (Privacy Guard) in the status bar that allows per-app-modifying the permissions of the running app. Does it have to be activated?
Thanks

- The unrolled bar shows the battery icon and its percentage (fig1). Only the battery icon is visible in the normal status bar (fig2). There is no way to set a different configuration (no other selection works).
- Styles & Wallpapers can set the custom style but it can not be named and checked, it is always Custom 1 and unmarked (fig3).

- 30% of the apps I'm using not available for this version
Are those available on a different phone or ROM running Android 10 yet?
I have a similiar experience like you. When imported from my Nougat phone nearly all of them work with no limitation so far. But for some of them I will wait until they are in the Playstore. It's not my daily driver yet - but a promising candidate:)
- reverse Tethering
Interesting! How did you do that on any other than this ROM? Just curious.​
- the letters in menu are sometimes "blurred" (screenshot)
Black wallpaper helped me. Worth a try.
EDIT: Black Wallpaper doesn't prevent blurredness. Just makes it harder to spot.​

Display doesn't look as sharp and rich in contrast as on my DualCore-S4Mini.Duos(GT-i9192)@LOS14 which was produced about a year earlier.
Probably hardware related. But who knows. Right now I'm a litttle bit reluctant to go back to stock just to check. Maybe you can help me out with your display experiences? And are there any (hidden) display values somewhere that I could manipulate?

I've written all this before. These bugs are source-side. Still under development.

- The camera does not save files to the SDcard. It only saves in the phone's memory.
Use open camera.
Settings > More camera controls > Use Storage Access Framework > Select a save location ( your SD-card)

what about i9192?
Don't have the device. Sorry

I just wanted to inform potential testers, I know it's an Android 10 issue and needs some time.

I used this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaQ7eAEqRDw
Works on Linage 16 latest Version. But not all Apps accept this connection.

No issue for me, but important to know, thanks. I'm happy I have a fast (2x PwBttn) and fully fledged shooter. Turned ISO to 800 and increased contrast/sharpness/saturation levels. Seems to keep the values permanently which I like.

TWRP 3.2.3 (TWRP-3.2.3-lineage-15.1_j1_20181016_serranove3g.tar)...?

serranove3g is for GT-i9192i
serranovelte is for GT-i9195i

What device have you?

GT-i9195i
You're right, I flashed the wrong TWRP! Actually I didn't know that even a DuoSim-QuadCore-Edition existed, until now. Probably even more rare than the GT-i9195i we have. But I should have noticed the "3g" - silly me.
That finally explains my initial problems with flashing. I had to delete the first two lines in the /META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary to make it run through.
Thanks for solving that mystery :highfive: . Puhh, I guess I was lucky I didn't brick the phone.
I will edit the quoted post of mine.
