Ah ok. Do you perhaps know if they plan to continue developing this ? if not can I just compile Slim 7 and J500F kernel ? I'm guessing I'll need to modify stuff to get it working

Miracast/ Screen Mirroring in build 0.13/ J500FN

hey guys, anyone using build 0.13 on J500FN? :D
I heard that BT Audio works in this build. Does screen mirroring/ miracast work, too? :eek:

I wouldn't say *full* of bugs, I'm using it daily since install and it's only a crash here and there for SlimLauncher (which I don't use anyway)

For home button to work on lockscreen, you need to edit files in /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kl

Append Wake after Home.

Code:key 172   HOME WAKE
Save and reboot.

Credits to serdotlinecho that taught it in the topic of rom AOSP.
Should this make the phone wake when you press home button? Because it still doesn't wake on my side.

@EsromG5 this ROM is by far one of the smoothest (if not the smoothest) ROMs i tried on my J5.
0.15 build is great, but offline charging is not working.
are you planning future updates or did you drop the support to this rom?
And obviously thank you for your time ;)

    New update for F, M and FN models - To download checke link in post # 1

    It was a slow time to stop to correct the biggest mistakes, so now we are well advanced, so I and @SoUnd001 (thanks) were to update the other roms.

    Changelog for this new update slim7:
    • Fixed InCall
    • Fixed Hotspot
    • Fixed Audio over Bluetooth
    • New upgrades for slim7 build 0.13
    • New driver updates primas
    • Improvements to wifi
    • Improvements with new RIL for calls and more ...

    Persistent Bug:
    • Only FM for now.
    I think this update will end the discussion and shut up people who doubt other developers.

    For J500F / M users, you can install this update.


    Fixed installation without patch.
    Updated Slim7 sources.

    I need you to now logcat to errors...please, report errors and make logcat.

    As I said, I arrived here without knowing who the old developers were, so if I used their sources it was to help you and not get applause from anyone, donate to anyone who wants to, thank anyone who wants ... but who does not want, just go away.

    Thanks to the early developers for the initial work.
    WelI think it is just as good making normal roms. The in-call isue and other bugs are related across all N roms so that means that if it gets fixed on one then you'll have all the other roms fixed in a small matter of time and now you have 3 working Nougat roms instead of one non functioning rom

    Not at all. At the moment you have a lot of not working ROM that are not going to work, because if you look at their github, you'll see that authors most likely lack knowledge needed to make them work. Building every ROM available using the same base is a waste of time (and distraction for users) if one can't even fix your issues in one of them. Plus moving to newer version of android without having the previous one fully working is a suicide run. Nougat has a lot of complex changes in it's sources and it doesn't even fully work on some officially supported devices, so don't expect a good ROM of Android 7.1.1 anytime soon and flooding forums with multiple ROMs having the same issues is not going to help it.
