Note: This is not a ROM based on the ROM shipped with your device. Exynos variants such as International (F), International Dual(Hybrid)-SIM (F/DS), Korean (N) ONLY. In NO way it is compatible with Snapdragon variants including but not limited to American(U/U1/A/T/P/V), Chinese(0/8/6), Hong Kong(0), Japanese(SC-*), Canadian(W) variants.

LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1 (Oreo), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

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.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Device Info:
  • Galaxy Note 9 (Exynos): TBD

What's working:
TBD
  • This build is an official LineageOS build. Compliance with our device support requirements is enforced and guaranteed. That means including but not limited to these hardwares will work:
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Mobile Network (Calling, Data, etc.)
  • Audio
  • USB
  • GPS
  • Camera
  • Fingerprint Sensor
  • NFC
  • Etc. Check device support requirements for more.

What's not working:
  • Applicable exceptions granted in device support requirements.
  • Obviously Samsung's own features such as Samsung Pay, KNOX, Theme Center, Game Launcher, etc. won't be ported to LineageOS. We may have our own implementation to similar functions, though.
  • Iris sensor does not work because AOSP upstream does not support that yet.
  • IMS services (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc). Samsung has their own proprietary implementation. It is not really possible to easily port that to LineageOS.

Instructions:
  • Make sure TWRP has been installed and functional
  • Download the latest build (and optionally gapps)
  • Download the compatible vendor image (https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=284041)
  • Reboot to recovery
  • Wipe data and cache (required if you switch from other ROMs)
  • Flash the vendor image
  • Flash the latest build (and gapps)
  • Reboot
LineageOS updater will handle updates automatically (OTA).
If you upgrade manually from older official releases to newer releases, you don't need to wipe your data or reflash gapps.

Reporting Bugs:
  • https://wiki.lineageos.org/bugreport-howto.html
  • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
  • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /proc/avc_msg.
Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues.
Please use LineageOS BUG tracker to report BUGs. BUGs reported in the thread could be ignored due to large number of posts.

Flashed, stuck at bootlogo. Doesn't even loop?

Tried flashing with noverity, tried with magisk, without magisk. Maybe vendor is bad?

Thank you @jesec for the effort.. This is exactly what I was looking for.

I tested this on N960F/D got stuck on bootsplash as well, I tried both Stock Vendor and the provided Vendor Images, with or without magisk with no luck.

I tried restoring boot image from previous backup (this might sound stupid) but I got past the splashcreen into Lineage Loading screen, it would stay for a minute then reboot to recovery.

For people who got stuck in the bootsplash
To exit the bootSplash freeze use the download mode button combination: Down+Bigsby+Power until screen goes off then recovery shorcut Up+Bigsby+Power,

Did anyone manage to make this work?

spen is for touch wiz aka Sam experience

for the rest if the android world it's a mouse pointer.

You maybe answer the sensitivity level but there is also the need to some kind of powering off the 500KHz signal send when not using the pen.

Then can we use the sensor to activate the pen ? What about the Bluetooth button ?

The wacom screen could be initialize from the begining with Project Trebble. What's the differences with LOS for S9s ?
