Hi all!

I built a new ROM, this one is for GALAXY A3, this device is similar than the A5, I adapted the A5 device tree to make it compatible with A3.


CyanogenMod 12.1 Temasek Unofficial for Samsung Galaxy A3​

Currently supported variants:
* SM-A300F
* SM-A300H
* SM-A300M

DISCLAIMER
Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 * The ROM is under developement and have some bugs.
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 */


What's not working:
* Camera in photo mode (distorted preview) - Workaround: select another resolution to fix the issue temporarily.
* NFC features are not properly tested.

FAQ Section:


• Why I can't receive OTA Updates?
This option will be enabled when Stable builds will be released.

• Why I can't install the ROM?
Make sure you have Wipe all system/data, and if you downloaded the ROM entirely for the variant you use. You can also try to reinstall TWRP.
However if you still can't install the ROM, you may post on the thread to ask some help.

• Can I install this Builds on another variant ?
It's not recommended at all to makr that (Soft Brick risk)

• Can I install TouchWiz Apps on this CM Build ?
For now it's not currently possible, know that TouchWiz Apps are using Samsung Framework to work, this framework is not included on this CM Build.

No risk to brick it forever attempting this way ? I think there is only one difference in RAM size between both devices... but this is quite a big difference anyway ?

Just softbrick. You still can boot into your twrp recovery if rom fails. But first make sure you have a working twrp recovery and made backup using twrp so you can restore where you left off on your TW.

Looking fwd for a reply from smw who installed it on a 300FU. :)
Just rooted, installed TWRP and backed-up my 300FU, and hopefully this ROM might be gold for it.
If i have some time, maybe I will try it myself, although my dev skills are pretty limited, so other than "it works!" and "dammit, bootloop.." I can't provide any valuable feedback.

A300-H

I flash A3F version to A3H(sm-a300h) and have surprised because rom booted up and working without any crashes.

Problems:
  1. Wi-Fi not working but it's can be fixed by replacing /system/lib/modules/wlan.ko by attached one.(it's from stock rom)
  2. Device won't charging(it actually do but CM doesn't react when charger is connected and to update the battery status you must reboot device)
  3. Vibration doesn't working
  4. Auto-rotate screen not working

At the moment, that's all.
