I can't use per-contact ringtones. I've dropped mp3s into /sdcard/Ringtones. When editing a contact and choosing a ringtone, my mp3 ones are present in the list but when you try to choose them, it's just that default notification sound. Calls from edited contact also get some kind of default ringtone instead of custom one.

Is that a ROM bug?

Btw here's a logcat of what happens when you choose a custom ringtone from the list pastebin.com/cJaexTAP

But no matter how hard I search, I can't find that update and even if it's over a year old I'd like to try that update

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1.x (N), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    #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.


    LineageOS 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. LineageOS 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 :
    • No FM radio (unsupported on this platform)
    • Offline charging works but NO animations
    • STK hangs after choosing a subscription in the menu
    • Bluetooth headset doesn't work with calls (confirmed by users)

    First time installing LineageOS 14.1 to your Galaxy Grand Prime VE, 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

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

    Q: ETAs?
    A: See here: Link

    Q: Anymore models supported?
    A: SM-G531BT

    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 could, but give proper credits

    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
    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 Marshmallow? I don't see it in Storage settings
    A: This feature has been moved to Developer settings, and will reset to default (Charging) after every reboots. 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"

    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: Can't install GAPPS?
    A: Install TWRP
    BETA-5 is up! Changes:
    1. Partially fixed HDR camera. If you want to take HDR pictures, just don't use other resolutions than 8MP
    2. Fully fixed GPS. Now it should function properly
    3. Hopefully fix random reboots during long mobile data usage
    4. Switched to new mali GPU driver. GPU frequency scaling implemented in kernel
    5. Fixed 720p60 video playback in OGYouTube and some other apps
    6. Downgraded kernel source for stability

    [NOTE]: Don't install RZ Kernel on this build. It'll stuck on boot logo due to old mali driver. I'll update it whenever I have time

    And FYI guys, I'm going on work with Oreo from now, so please don't ask about it till I release it. If you want to know the latest news, join our channel here: https://t.me/gpvechannel
