BETA-4 is up! Changes:
  • Updated buglist (please check OP)
  • Enabled sdcardfs for enhanced performance
  • Updated kernel source (3.10.89)
  • Fixed GPS bug
  • Fixed slow WiFi speed
  • Fixed SOD bug from earlier releases
  • Fixed screen recording
  • Switched to source-built gralloc module

Download link updated in OP!

[NOTE]: Due to the well-known eMMC bug on system partition of this device, this build is unrooted by default. If you want to use root, I'd recommend SuperSU or Magisk for systemless root
Don't use addonsu if you don't want to waste 5hrs of your life wiping system partition

Thanks

Can't power on the device while phone is charging offline. Need to disconnect the charge every time to turn it on.

Note: battery still charging on offline.

Boot into download mode by keep pressing power, home and volume down button and then click volume down button to boot into system or open recovery and boot from there. You can easily boot like this without disconnecting charger

Few questions to be sure

On this phone at the moment. Since you need to unlock boot loader to flash/root anything, so does flashing a custom rom's first step is to unlock boot loader as far as my research goes. However I searched and Google everything relevant to it but can't find a way to unlock it. Though came across some comments that it comes unlocked but am unsure about it. My question is does the bootloader really comes unlocked? A little confirmation to it will be great help. Thank you.

Simple thought: There's no such fact that we need to "unlock" bootloader for Samsung devices (except Nexus series)
For new devices starting from Android 5.0 and above, another step is to enable "OEM unlock" in Developer options, so that we can freely install any custom ROMs or recoveries we want

So this series doesn't have bootloader unlock thing? This won't brick in the process of flashing a custom rom right?

One more question . I want to root but the type of root interface I'm looking for only supports 5. 0+ versions of roms and mine is 4.4.4. So what if I flash a 5. 0+ rom through custom recovery without rooting first and then flash my desired rooting interface? Is it possible to do that?

This device only has 4.4.4 stock. Any above that will be custom ROMs, and they're all available in this forum
And of course, you don't need to root before installing any custom ROMs. The only thing you need to install ROMs is the custom recovery

So I just jumped in this ROM after Cyanogen 13 and the only thing missing is the theme manager. Previously when I had cm 13, I used that theme chooser to change the theme my device but before jumping in to this ROM I forgot to make the theme of cm 13 default. Now I'm stuck with this theme and can't find a way to change it. Is there any theme managers for custom ROMs available other than substratum.

    Lineage is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1.1 (N), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * I am 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 me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
     *
     */
    Lineage is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. Lineage does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.


    We'll not support users and answer questions from users which:
    • are running a custom kernel
    • have flashed mods
    • modified system files
    • didn't follow our intructions word by word
    • are unfriendly
    • And most important: DON'T READ THE OP


    What's working:
    • Everything except in BUGS/Not working list

    BUGS/Not working :
    • Offline charging doesn't work
    • STK hangs after choosing a subscription in the menu
    • Front camera displays 0,3MP instead of 2MP

    First time installing LineageOS 14.1 to your Galaxy Core Prime, or coming from another ROM:
    • Install TWRP Recovery
    • Reboot into Recovery using 3-button-combo (Vol-up+Home+Power)
    • Do a Nandroid backup! (Optional and only if you weren't running TouchWiz before)
    • WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition + format /system partition)*
    • Install the ROM from sdcard using TWRP Recovery
    • Optionally install the Google Apps ( get it here: https://opengapps.org ) (pico GAPPS recommended) (*)

    NOTE: First boot might take long time, due to deodexed build, so don't consider bootloop!!
    Upgrading from an older build of this ROM
    • Wipe system partition, wipe dalvik-cache but not data partition
    • Optionally install Google Apps (GAPPS) (link above)

    (*) NOTE: If you're about going to install GAPPS with ROM, install it right after you've installed the ROM, else you have to do a factory reset if you've booted the ROM first

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Taken originally from @doesntexits

    Q: ROM startup too slow?
    A: Nope, just because you haven't done a factory reset before installing the ROM

    Q: Dead touchscreen?
    A: Wrong installation method leads to this problem. Before restoring to stock through Odin, go to recovery mode (TWRP highly recommended), wipe everything in the Wipe section >> Advanced wipe (tick all system, data, cache, but not other storages, no need wiping dalvik/ART cache, as it already done by wiping data), then go to Download mode, restore stock, install custom recovery again and then, install the ROM you want

    Q: ETAs?
    A: See here: Link

    Q: Anymore models supported?
    A: SM-G360HU

    Q: Is init.d supported on this ROM?
    A: Every CyanogenMod ROMs support init.d, so be free at scriptings

    Q: Can you include ABCXYZ feature / Samsung Apps here?
    A: NO!

    Q: Can I use your ROM as a base for portings?
    A: Yes, you can

    Q: Server error in Google Play Store?
    A: Install latest Google Play Services manually first (might take long time, due to Lollipop's nature), then you can install apps from GG Play as usual

    Q: How to use adoptable storage feature? I see it's new in Marshmallow, and now it's Nougat
    A: Go to Settings >> Storage & USB >> Tap on the SD card label (not the eject icon) >> 3 dots menu on the top right >> Settings >> Format as internal and done!

    Q: Where's the MTP option in this ROM? I don't see it in Storage settings
    A: This feature has been moved to Developer settings since Marshmallow, and will reset to default (Charging) after everytime you unplug your USB (due to security reasons). Enable developer options first by tapping 7 times on Build number in About phone section >> Go to Developer settings >> Select USB configuration. The fastest way to do this is plug in your USB with your PC, scroll down notification bar and tap on "USB for Charging" or "USB is connected"

    Q: Where's the "running" section in Apps settings?
    A: It has been cut off separately to Memory setting and "Running services" in Developer settings. You can see the memory used by apps for a period of time and closing apps too, but they won't disappear in the menu, and in "Running services", still same as old-fashioned running apps section

    Q: My phone is slow as snail after installing ROM. I've tried restoring stock and do formattings but no help?
    A: I have answered this question. See this post: Link
