the sim is probably fine you just have to flash the stock rom or a working rom to get the sim working again in my case i can use the mibile internet but no phone calls or messages
I am getting the exact same issue. I just updated to lineage-17.1-20210325-nightly-a5y17lte-signed. Now my phone won't boot. It sits on the boot animation for a long time before eventually going black then rebooting into recovery.
Install and see if you can live with it. If you don't like it you could always switch to something else.I am using my A5 2017 now for more than 3 years and am still happy with it. I recently read that Samsung will stop the support. For me a good reason to switch to a Custom ROM. I am not totally unexperienced, I rooted and flased my old S Advance some years ago. But I never got that phone stable again.
I just want a stable ROM which I can use for the upcoming year or longer. From what I read the LineageOS is a good choice. But the current version 17.1 contains Android 10, Is that really suitable for this phone? Or maybe an older version is better?
Also the installation instructions in the Lineage site warn for instability and do not recommend installation for daily use... and that is exactly what I want to do. Use it daily just as now
Any advices? My phone had had all ofiicial Samsung updates and is now running on Android 8.0.0
That sounds a bit of an open door. If I move away from the stock ROM, there is probably no going back... I just want to install the most stable custom ROM available, I am not really interested in cutting edge but unstable features.
First off, lineage is really really stable, it's been around for a while and there's nothing cutting edge. Second, restoring the stock rom is really easy, as is flashing another custom rom
OK flashed it and upon early testing the stutter is still there. I will play around with enabling force vp9 codec and see if that helps.
