This ROM is way beyond expectations, it's hardly believable that J500H is running Android 13 and it's somehow usable as a daily drive! (one SIM card though)

Many thanks mate, you're definitely a man with great passion for his job.

Hi, is it me or anyone also experienced a slow charging? I noticed that the device will takes like 4-5 hours or more to complete the charging. Device: Samsung-J500h

Tried this rom on my j5 as second device. Seems everything is working expect mobile data, messeging and calls. Sim card is detecting. I also configured apn and restarted phone. What could be the problem?

hello, I just installed your rom is very well done but what scares me is that my cell phone is down the battery and now to connect the loaded shows a question mark.
Is it normal in your rom? or is it a failure of my phone?

Thanks for this amazing ROM. I'm a mobile dev and did not have an Android 13 device before, this works really well for what I need it. Within minutes of installing I found multiple issues with my apps on Android 13 that I had to address asap.

The ROM is really stable, wifi works like a charm, battery life is literally impressive, GPS works fine for me. Haven't tested the mobile network. The animations are a bit choppy, but performance is otherwise impressive for a device this old.

    I had to delay the update for a week due to personal reasons, I hope to upload a new version soon :)

    Thanks.

    I hope you have not forgotten to add the 2G network to solve the problem of no sound on the second SIM card.

    Hello there, @daviiid99. Thank you for your great efforts in keeping this phone alive. Could you give us an estimate of when your latest release will be available or a time range?
    oh good manner

    I see your comments in most threads about j5 custom roms, so I imagine you know most of them, so I think this will be a simple question for you to answer: what is the most stable rom with the least amount bugs for the j53gxx (SM-J500H)?
    Hello, I also have a J500h


    lineage os 17.1 is also a good ROM, but it is outdated and consumes a lot of battery
    It is better to use lineage os 18.1
