So. Since 7.1.1 is going to take a while. id like to give you guys something to mess with. This is not to be mirrored to a thread on XDA to avoid confusion

Here is my Lineage 15.1 Treltexx build folder : GoogleDrive

To follow updates and when new builds are posted/changelogs for them, join here : https://goo.gl/c836TF

This is only for N910C/N910H. it is basically a public ALPHA. i post builds there almost everyday to test on my own device.

Q : Why LOS 15 not LOS 16 Which you worked on ?
A : The LOS 16 is in a much worse state than 15.1 and i dont have the knowledge to fix it properly yet

Q : Can i use this as a daily driver ?
A : Probably not, unless you dont use your phone for calls

Q : Can you build for XYZ
A : N910S/L/K and N915S/L/K Trees are kinda ready, but until i fix some common bugs i wont be compiling for them

As of 6/3/2019 BUILD #2 The bugs are :

NO SIM Card support whatsoever
NO NFC
NO OFFLINE GPS
VIDEO RECORDING IS UNSATBLE AND ONLY WORKS IN FOOTEJ

And possible other undiscovered bugs.

everything else like camera, OMX, Audio should be working fine

idk have fun i guess. xoxo

EDIT :

BUILD #3 Is avalible.

- Working GPSD (Location now works. Not offline GPS Tho)
- Working baseband (The modem loads and wont crash the phone, however it will not read simcards yet)
i forgot to mention, fingerprint is working

EDIT 2 :

Simcard fixed. Build will be updated later

This is an unprovisioned simcard to be clear. hence why it shows no signal i belive. once i get time ill try it on my main simcard and see how it goes. previously we didnt even get IMEI

I can mess around with that rom and test with everyday tasks cos i use my note4 for media player(music,video...etc)/IRC/Email/Websurf... but not for call/message.
nvm I have N910S variant and i will wait!
//i saw fingerprint driver in new helios5433's code. will fingerprint sensor also work with new tw 7.1.1?

How to report new Bugs..

If the bug does not have notes, or not listed then follow these simple steps
Method 1 : provide a logCat (Mobile) OR Use LoggingKit.zip Then provide detailed explanation of the problem and how to recreate it

Method 2 : The ROM has an Auto Logcat service, Using any root explorer, navigate to /Data/HeliosLogger/Refined**.txt And Upload that file with a detailed explanation of the problem (Especially for FCs!)
P.S : That file is backedup on each boot. since 6.0

Is this custom firmware suitable for you ?
  • You are able to understand the nature of custom ROMs and especially Ported Roms with Higher Android Version, and that they are never truly Bugless
  • You are ready to give up on some functionality (bugs) and ready to sacrifice on some ease of use in some areas (mentioned below)
  • You are ready to use a ROM that will have basic CAMERA functionality (1080P recording, 3rd party camera is almost mandatory)
  • You are able to understand Basic "English" and have the ability to understand AND follow instructions
  • You are not a nit picky person who is on the hunt to find Bugs that do not affect daily usage severely (Legit bug reports are welcome)
  • You are capable of Finding 3rd party apps that might fix some bugs that might show from this rom
  • You are Aware and take responsibility for any Damages caused by YOU or the CustomFirmware weather thats a failed alarm or a 2018 note 7

If the Answer to the above questions was "YES" please continue with the Post. if the answer to ANY is "NO" Please go Here And install a different Firmware. if you Lied and still felt obliged to spam the thread with reposted questions, lazy questions, stuff that are in F.A.Q and so on, i encourage everyone in this thread to IGNORE YOU and skip your question as it was never there.

Thank you very much Anan.

Lineage 15.1 works fine on my N910CQ, but the CPU temperature does not drıp below 75 degrees Celcius, device heats up too much and at 75% full battery, remaining battery time is sjown as 2 hours and 40 minutes.

Bluetooth LDAC drops frequently when I stream music to the headphones.

I installed the Mega Gapss package on it and they work.

Waiting for RR Oreo :)



This is only lineage 15.1 build. RR Oreo build will be posted later at night. im working on fixing some of the bugs

Which exact package did you flash? I flashed magisk, gapps Pico (only to learn that play services constantly crashes then flashed full gapps. Same result..

Review of v3 so far on N910C
[✓] streamed 1080p hevc from remote server to the phone then had vlc transcode it to a Chromecast (working upnp and rendering stuff well ? although the limits of the HW start to show when you set vlc to x4 playback xD)
[✓] drivedroid boot UEFI Arch to Thinkpad x220t
[✓] wifi
[✓] magisk 19.2 & SafetyNet
[✓] YouTube 1080p
[✓] screen recording
[✓] sound and mic that's not used for calling
[✓] gapps camera
[✓] transferred app to phone via Bluetooth
[X] Fingerprints don't get added, but HW works (similar situation to previous ROMs)
[X] gapps video starts up a recording then when you hit stop the app freezes and the video functionality is inaccessible (until a reboot), open camera fails to write a video successfully.
[50%] RIL recognized an old unprovisioned sim (Receiving sim adapter to help test in the future)

Also, here's some nice results of this ROM (ROM threads, not oreo) before I took a nandroid backup xD
I forgot to turn it off after I used it last xD
Edit: that's with all battery optimization turned off. Great work!! ???

[50%] RIL recognized an old unprovisioned sim (Receiving sim adapter to help test in the future)

Damn, you went all in, thanks for the excellent report. im curious about this unprovisioned sim thingy. i also have one, and i tried it and yes indeed ril connects to it. when i plug my working sim its ****s itself. im still looking into it but its for sure the same issue we face in 7.1.1 TW. perhaps a fix will be common. i hope
Im unsure about fingerprints either, the validity server is unstable af. it does work here but after few days of usage i need to re-register the fingerprint. not sure whats up with that but i want to try and take the validity app and FP service from N910F snapdragon, since they got a more uptodate version. will see how it goes

hopefully ill have RR up there after EID. i might throw in AEX too

I can mess around with that rom and test with everyday tasks cos i use my note4 for media player(music,video...etc)/IRC/Email/Websurf... but not for call/message.
nvm I have N910S variant and i will wait!
//i saw fingerprint driver in new helios5433's code. will fingerprint sensor also work with new tw 7.1.1?

if there is enough demand, ill compile an N910S test build (since we have a private N915 test version aswell.

Fun fact the SLK variants had ril much much longer before C/H ever did. tho it is the same state with the 50% working thingy. regarding fingerprint, the driver was always there. the issue is the system side that connects the driver to the phone itself. our validity service FP is from LP/MM only. it does not support anything higher

This one

Which exact package did you flash? I flashed magisk, gapps Pico (only to learn that play services constantly crashes then flashed full gapps. Same result..

Go to Open Gapps webpage and select

ARM -> 8.1 -> Super ( as this Lineage build is 32 bit - I installed AnTuTu benchmark and looked up if it was 32 bit or 64 bit from system info - I read it somewhere that was the easiest way to determine OS type )

Notice the message that shows up after flashing this Gapps -> it says make Google Dialer the default Telephony app otherwise phone will restart in each call you receive. So, after reboot, that was the first thing I have done.

Build in experimental folder. Audio incall needs work. Tmw I’ll get to it. I’m practically dead right now, good night

RIL Fully fixed boys. This fix applies to Lineage 16 Aswell.

Whoah. This is big news man! You don't let anyone rush you though. Release it when you feel its ready.

I know you have the standards that make us all love your roms ;)

Based on my findings so far, there isn't. Most Google Camera ports with HDR+ and such are only for 64-bit phones with Camera2API (Samsung Note 5, Note FE, Note 8, Note 9, etc.) and not for 32-bit phones without Camera2API (Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Note 3, S5, etc.). If you try to get it from APKMirror (the latest update for 7 0), you'll just have very basic camera functions (taking photos and videos) with Lens Blur. Till further findings, there is no hope for that Google Camera to be found ever.

Thank you so much for useful information.

Awww got so excited to try the experimental builds on my N910H.

AOSP Extended flashed okay, ended up in a bootloop.

Lineage OS would not even flash, threw out ERROR: 7 on TWRP.

    THE VERY IMPORTANT NOTES POSTED WITH THIS RELEASE !
    Install Notes
    1) DirtyFlashing from ALPHA 1 is possible , yet a clean flash is always much more recommended
    2) Its recommended to MANUALLY Wipe SYSTEM,DATA And CACHE when doing a clean install
    3) Busybox installation will take an extra minute or two
    4) if the ROM was stuck on splash, Update your Recovery to the latest available, (if none available wait for @DahakePL to add support)

    Special Notes (Very Important)

    Camera

    - SamsungCamera is very unstable, but sometimes takes photos (with all samsungs optimizations), For video recording use FootejCamera (included in the rom)
    - Video recorder in 3rdParty apps will only record upto 1080P 30FPS
    - Video recording will not work in Samsung camera at all
    - API2 Features like pro mode or brightness slider WILL crash the samsung Camera
    - Camera works flawlessly on 3rd party apps like snapchat etc
    - Camera VideoRecording might have issues with SOME 3rdparty apps Therefore record in Footej only

    Audio

    - EliteScripts app is mandatory for all users to have a "good enough" experience with Audio in this ROM use it to switch Audio states
    - N910C/H Audio will allow earpiece calls for those variants, and 3rdParty app Microphone support, Bluetooth audio will not work
    - N91xSLK Audio will allow earpiece calls for those variants, but NO 3rdParty App microphone support, Bluetooth Audio WILL work
    - N910U Audio will allow earpiece calls for those variants, but NO 3rdParty App microphone support, Bluetooth Audio WILL work
    - Audio State can be switched on the Fly without reboots using EliteScripts
    - Each Audio state can be used on any variant, with the difference begin what it allows, so C/H Users can pick SLK when they want to use Bluetooth Audio devices, And N91xSLK/U users can pick C/H when they want to use 3rd party recording apps

    Special Notes about EliteScripts App
    - This app is Inhouse made in less than 20Hours, expect bugs
    - QS Toggles are Slow to change QS Color only, but fast in changing audio state
    - The app WILL NOT work without Root
    - QS Tiles are hidden by default, press the top right menu to show them
    - When the QS is blue, the script has been activated
    - Run it atleast once before use at boot
    - Whitelist it from smartmanager battery optimizations
    - the app might FC if it was removed from recents or cleared ram in some scenarios

    Other

    - Sensorhub is disabled in this release intentionally, as 24 hours ago it was discovered that its causing some random reboots for few testers
    - Audio by default sounds near Stock, if you want to increase it, you can do so yourself by using 3rdParty apps, or magisk modules such as Viper4Android or DolbyAtmos
    - Adapt sound and SoundAlive will only work when N91xSLK/N910U is selected in Elite Scripts
    - ROM uses WQHD resolution by default, and boot animation will and forever will be Cut in half when you set to FHD


    Quick F.A.Q

    Q : Phone is HOT, battery is bad , how to improve ?
    A : You have full control on the kernel included, open EliteTuner and play with frequencies and various other tunables
    Q : Samsung Camera is usable ?
    A : It works the best for selfies, everything else is buggy
    Q : Will the audio ever be improved?
    A : Well i thought the camera could never be fixed, so only the future can tell
    Q : EliteScripts keeps FCing sometimes
    A : Always keep the app running in the background to use QSToggles

    This brings back the Audio setup that was present in 5.2.1 . with all its pros and cons.
    i.e No bluetooth Audio for N910C/H , relying on EliteScripts to switch audio states for supported variants.
    Read 5.2.1 Notes section for more information.

    Installation : Flash Via TWRP. No wiping needed.

    AFH: Download
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    2. Refined Nougat Echo FIX
    The fix is basically by Fully cutting of MIC 2/3 and lowering MIC 1 and earpiece volume. if you continue to have echo, lower your ear piece volume (volume while in-call). if you STILL have echo, tell the people on the other-side to stop being so sensitive

    P.S : This will disable any Loud speaker mods, i wont be making 3 other mixers for that, if you want to increase speaker volume, download some audio mod that doesn't contain Chinese back doors.

    Good idea to read this F.A.Q While the rom is installing

    Refined Nougat 6.0 Notes :
    1- Recommended to boot in sound mode always (not vibrate or silent)
    2- Bluetooth calling starts working after 10 minutes of boot
    3- audio boosts are loud, better to try stock ones first
    4- Dirty Flash is POSSIBLE from 5.5/5.6
    5- Recommended to change edgelight mode to "SCREEN ON" only
    6- Recommended to enable small callUI in phone settings (loads faster while using apps)
    7- DT2W sometimes requires a tap then quick double taps
    8- 1080P is recommended for the smoothest UI (not really the smoothest gaming tho)
    9- If playstore is not installing upon a clean flash, reboot
    10- When GPS stops giving you accurate readings. pull the status bar and tap Kill GPS button (will be hidden at first)
    11- if GPS KIller isnt running, be sure it has ROOT
    12- Sometimes installing magisk will not bring the app. if you got no root, reflash magisk manually

    Refined Nougat 5.5 FA.Q :
    Q : How to use VoLTE on N91xSLK variants ?
    A : It will automatically work When you are on a network that supports VoLTE , and call someone who also uses VoLTE network and enabled device. Difference in audio is major (its like doing a 3rd party call in clarity, minus its bugs)
    Device will switch to 4G/LTE mode while doing the call.

    Q : How usable is Samsung camera?
    A : Its perfect and the recommended way to take Photos/selfies
    Most of the effects are working fine including HDR , Beauty etc

    Q : Sometimes Samsungcamera FC, why ?
    A : Dont move the exposure (light bulb) if you want to then you need to only move it by +/- 0.5 degree for it to work

    Q : Samsung camera doesnt save recorded videos.
    A : Use footej instead

    Q : How to send videos in Some 3rdparty apps that wouldnt save videos?
    A : Always record videos with footej, then pass it to the needed app. Programs like snap chat should work fine

    Q : How bad is the video quality with the whatsapp gif fix ?
    A : With the latest one, its very minimal and almost non noticeable

    Q : People say my phone is BUSY and cant receive calls while the phone is ON and not busy
    A : When using LITE ONLY mode in mobiledata options, you wont be able to receive calls As calls only work on LTE/3G/2G modes

    Q : My boot animation is cut in half HELP !
    A : Change resolution from FHD to WQHD in settings > display

    Q : Recommended kernel tweaks/CPU frequency stays high
    A : Check this post #213

    Q : I dont see any EDGE panels after installing
    A : Reboot the phone

    Q : I cant see edge lighting when screen on (only works on screen on)
    A : it wont work on screen OFF, and setup your edge panels to show notification on ALL APPS and reboot after that

    Q : How is battery Life ?
    A : It should be better than stock, if you dont like it tho, get a powerbank as its very unlikely to improve

    Q : Will fingerprint be fixed ? ever ?
    A : I will attempt to fix it, probably fail, but ill try

    Q : AOD
    A : I have no luck porting the driver yet

    Q : How to use dualboot patcher with this ROM
    A : I assume you read this Guide, Flash nougat as primary, SET kernel and DO NOT UPDATE RAMDISK, flash MM in secondary dataslot, and thats it. use latest TWRP always. For a FULL guide read this post by @omidr7

    Q : What to do after the rom is setup ?
    A : Go to samsung apps, let the phone update everthing

    Q : My phone does NOT boot help pls
    A : Ensure you have LATEST AF bootloader and modem installed, did all the wipes, and did your house chores,

    Special Notes (Very Important)

    Camera

    - SamsungCamera is very unstable, but sometimes takes photos (with all samsungs optimizations), For video recording use FootejCamera (included in the rom)
    - Video recorder in 3rdParty apps will only record upto 1080P 30FPS
    - Video recording will not work in Samsung camera at all
    - API2 Features like pro mode or brightness slider WILL crash the samsung Camera
    - Camera works flawlessly on 3rd party apps like snapchat etc
    - Camera VideoRecording might have issues with SOME 3rdparty apps Therefore record in Footej only

    Audio

    - EliteScripts app is mandatory for all users to have a "good enough" experience with Audio in this ROM use it to switch Audio states
    - N910C/H Audio will allow earpiece calls for those variants, and 3rdParty app Microphone support, Bluetooth audio will not work
    - N91xSLK Audio will allow earpiece calls for those variants, but NO 3rdParty App microphone support, Bluetooth Audio WILL work
    - N910U Audio will allow earpiece calls for those variants, but NO 3rdParty App microphone support, Bluetooth Audio WILL work
    - Audio State can be switched on the Fly without reboots using EliteScripts
    - Each Audio state can be used on any variant, with the difference begin what it allows, so C/H Users can pick SLK when they want to use Bluetooth Audio devices, And N91xSLK/U users can pick C/H when they want to use 3rd party recording apps

    Special Notes about EliteScripts App
    - This app is Inhouse made in less than 20Hours, expect bugs
    - QS Toggles are Slow to change QS Color only, but fast in changing audio state
    - The app WILL NOT work without Root
    - QS Tiles are hidden by default, press the top right menu to show them
    - When the QS is blue, the script has been activated
    - Run it atleast once before use at boot
    - Whitelist it from smartmanager battery optimizations
    - the app might FC if it was removed from recents or cleared ram in some scenarios

    Other

    - Sensorhub is disabled in this release intentionally, as 24 hours ago it was discovered that its causing some random reboots for few testers
    - Audio by default sounds near Stock, if you want to increase it, you can do so yourself by using 3rdParty apps, or magisk modules such as Viper4Android or DolbyAtmos
    - Adapt sound and SoundAlive will only work when N91xSLK/N910U is selected in Elite Scripts
    - ROM uses WQHD resolution by default, and boot animation will and forever will be Cut in half when you set to FHD


    Bugs

    - Offline GPS Navigation (Will only work with mobiledata or Wifi)
    - SmartView
    - IR Blaster
    - Fingerprint Sensor


    Quick F.A.Q

    Q : Phone is HOT, battery is bad , how to improve ?
    A : You have full control on the kernel included, open EliteTuner and play with frequencies and various other tunables
    Q : Samsung Camera is usable ?
    A : It works the best for selfies, everything else is buggy
    Q : Will the audio ever be improved?
    A : Well i thought the camera could never be fixed, so only the future can tell
    Q : EliteScripts keeps FCing sometimes
    A : Always keep the app running in the background to use QSToggles


    How to report New bugs

    If the bug does not have notes, or not listed then follow these simple steps
    Method 1 : provide a logCat (Mobile) OR Use LoggingKit.zip Then provide detailed explanation of the problem and how to recreate it

    Method 2 : The ROM has an Auto Logcat service, Using any root explorer, navigate to /Data/Refined_Error.txt And Upload that file with a detailed explanation of the problem (Especially for FCs!)
    P.S : That file is created on each boot, so if you reboot after your issue happens, the log is useless until the issue happens again


    Personal Notes
    Finally im able to bring to you, loyal note 4 owners the BETA 2, its another major step in my plan to fully discard custom rom users of Old, outdated, and horribly looking Marshmallow (very evil i know). i believe that with this update if you fit the criteria above then this may very well be suitable to be a daily driver, and so it was for my self for the past year. The camera isnt something to write home about, its serviceable at best but does do its job in some scenarios. the Audio is quite messy to be honest, but i think its matter of few days before new users can get used to it. until a real solution is found (one that supports all these variants is highly unlikley). This update was a tough one im not gonna lie, lost my data twice, the Audio real time switching was a headache to deal with and develop at the last minute. heck the entire test rom got leaked for 10 minutes ! but with team work i am quite happy to say that this is a good update. Ofcourse this does not mean this rom is gone, there is alot more work left to do, that im still willing to do. and my plans for beta 3 to not be 3 months away.

    Now to shell out. as you guys can obviously tell This has been a long project in the making, if you appreciate the work i have done, Feel free to buy me a cup of coffee @Paypal im kinda running out of, or simply by leaving good feedback, constructive criticism and a Thanks :good:
