Aren't you using the permissive build?
Check your device Settings

Privacy>Trust
If SELinux is applying you're using enforcing
I am using enforcing right now. SIM Card is working only the permissive? I already tested LineageOS 18.1 with Permissive, I try to recovery lineageOS stock, after i back to reboot system? it appears constlanty recovery, never stop. it doesnt work to boot "reboot system" and i try to use odin TWRP Official. it works to boot system all good, but if i click "reboot recovery" it agian lineageOS too, it again doesnt work "reboot system" What is your opinion about it?

I already tested, it has one problem, if you install from Play Store "Rush" or "Farm Heroes Saga" the app is very low graphics right. I did playing it. It crash a lot, he tooks time to open the games. it's very slow. I did testing (Enforcing and Permissive). Can you fix about this?
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?

Hotspot was buggy with permissive and crashing with enforcing.

I'll look into it again, thanks

The links for the latest permissive build and recovery for j53gxx and j5lte don't seem to work. (other links work fine)

I also wanted to ask you something. How much time does it generally take to port a ROM like pixel experience to our device?

    Hello i'm also new installing custom roms and i've been following this guide, my phone is the j53gxx (SM-j500H) and i was wondering if i should use the recovery from TWRP or just the one from this post. Or it doesn't matter which one i use?
    Yes, you can use both to flash this ROM.
