A new update is out, read the changelog carefully before flashing it.

If you face a bootloop after flashing it, you may need to perform a clean installation

SELinux enforcing is applying, this means your device is protected and limits access to software execution.
Some sepolicy denials still need to be addressed but this will be in the next update. I need to release this version for testing purpose and reporting bugs.
Thank you daviiid99 for another update. Does this mean that now we can use banking apps without using magisk hide?

Thank u so much. On all of ur updates one thing i forgot to mention is overheating and battery life reduction. If those problems are fixed i say this is the best custom rom for j5 series. Good luck with all your work.

The latest update out there improves that aspect, but if it would be something extraordinary and I believe that it would be the ideal point of this rom, which consumes less battery and therefore generates less temperature, thank you very much for keeping our devices updated (Google Translate)

The battery usage may be related to Google Apps, for heating I need to address some denials

I need to check it, could be GApps heating the device and draining it faster. Idk

1 - As a previous comment said to be able to remove the apps so that they occupy less can be a solution or only have the fundamental apps for their operation, I think you are using the oppengapps v.11 pico.
2 - I have seen some developments of other cell phones that were developing the kernel, according to I have seen that it improves the work of the processor by lowering the temperature of the processor and obtaining better use of the battery
3 - Make an undervolt if possible in this version

Gapps included in the rom maybe the reason causing the heat. because on bliss rom from jenslody battery life and the temperature is excellent. so if u could release an update without gapps that would be amazing.. always grateful for your hard work and dedication 😍

I'll not remove the GApps cause flashing the wrong packages could lead to a bootloop for most people

But I'll address some issues for sure

First of all thanks for the dev for maintaining our device active through this development

I'm keeping up with this topic and I want to use this ROM as soon as possible!

The Bluetooth in the "Not Working" section says that it is in this state for enforcing builds... are there permissive builds that Bluetooth is working properly? What about the Hotspot feature?

I'm sorry if this has been asked already around here

Yes, bluetooth is working only on permissive builds for now.
I'll fix it for the next release

Hotspot it's just a pain, tried some workarounds with no luck.

    New update is out, this time is a permissive build of LineageOS 18.1

    Enforcing builds have a high power consumption and memory usage so I'll keep them on testing

    Is there any chance you could make an android 12 ROM ?
    If you check my GitHub I've been working on it since day 1

    This will take some time until I address everything , sorry guys

    It's just our adreno 306 being slow, nothing I can do to improve it.
    I've tried to update the Adreno drivers to latest but the improved performance was just a bit

    This device never was good for gaming.
    Great! I installed "Perfomance Tweaker" from Play Store, need "ROOT"! As CPU change "Interactive" to "Perfomance", if you want to play the app "Rush", he almost tooks to open, maybe 1 min or 2 min! Normally! Because of Adreno 306 is very older, but it still GOOD! What if J5 can to run with Call of Duty Mobile from LineageOS 18.1? He almost "nothing happen" you must to use the "very low graphics", it still good, not lag much! 25 fps - 33fps, it works with Xbox Controller! WARMING! If you want to turn off the smartphone with Perfomance CPU? It waste your battery! It must to change "Interactive CPU" it will not happen!

    And Hotspot? It "ALOMST" work!! Only one time, if you use mobile data with hotspot, it is fine! But if you want to turn off the hotspot? It give error, you need to restart normally!

    =================
    I am using from LineageOS 18.1 with Permissive!
    OS: Android 11 - 15.11.2021 - Only a few issue "Hotsopt"
    Games: All working, no lag, not always! 20FPS to 44FPS if you use Call of Duty Mobile, ONLY "USE PERFOMANCE CPU" from Play store "search: Perfomance Tweaker", change it perfomance.
    ==================

    Lineage0S 18.1 with Enforcing:
    - Do NOT working and Issue: SIM Card and Hotspot
    - Game: All games are crashing constlanty!

    Thank you for guys! I hope you fix soon about that?

    Day #2 of using this rom, and I found some another problems:
    - If I want to record something with camera and I press record button on any camera app (LineageOS default camera or Open Camera by Mark Harman) it crashes after one second (no idea why). Both camera apps can take and save photos fine, but as I said there's a problem with video recording.

    Btw I want to mention that I don't use any social media apps (for example Instagram, TikTok or other) on which you can record a video, so I don't know if recording on these kind of apps works properly. Also, I rarely use selfie/rear camera on chatting apps like Discord/Skype/MS Teams, but I could test it out in the coming days. (right now it's 01:28 AM while writing this comment)

    (my LOS version at the time of writing this comment: 18.1-20210830-UNOFFICIAL-j5nlte )
    I think I know why the camera crashes, mediaserver crashes, taking the camera down with it I also found that proximity does not work
    Thanks for the reports but this build is old and I fixed lots of these issues at this point. I'll release it asap.

    I've found a huge issue on my galaxy j5 (J500F - j5lte) which is, mobile network is disabled and it's showing no sim card.
    No offense but you should have read the thread before posting the already mentioned bug which the dev already knows about and trying to fix it.
