Installation instructions:
1. Make sure you have TWRP installed on your device to be able to flash the rom.
2. Download the latest build from the link above and copy it to a place where you can find it later.
3. Optionally download GApps for using the Play Store and other Google related services from here: https://opengapps.org. Choose ARM as architecture and 9.0 as the OS version. The size of the GApps package is upon to you how much apps you want to have preinstalled. Copy this zip aswell to a place where you can find it easy later. If you download it with Chrome or with the Google Drive App it should be by default in the Download folder.
4. Turn your phone off and press Volume UP + Home Button + Power button at the same time until the splash screen appears. Then your device should boot into the recovery. There you wipe following partitions: Data, System, Cache, Dalvik if this is your first install. All of your installed applications get lost by this. Your photos, videos etc. won't get deleted if you haven't ticked the box for internal storage. As the kernel also supports F2FS i would change the filesystem for the cache partition from ext4 to f2fs for a better system performance. Now go to the main TWRP menu, click on install and go to the place where you have placed your zips and first select the rom and then click on the left button if you have downloaded the optional GApps package to add another zip to the queue. Now swipe the slider at the bottom to install and reboot the phone to the system. The first boot can take a while and after booting you could experience some lags because of the GApps initialization but they should disappear after some time.
4. Now you have successfully installed the rom and you're ready to use dotOS on your device. Congratulations! :D

Bugs:
- VoLTE (isn't working on samsung devices and won't work anytime in the future too)
- HWC isn't enabled yet (could lead to a bit performance decrease in apps with alot of layers)

Although we now have Windevine L1 our phone is not supported on Netflix or Amazon Prime (it is not on stock either).

There are some hacked versions of Netflix floating about but I don't think you really need HD on our tiny screen :).

Widevine L1 is even supporting 4K, isn't it?

L1 just enables a more protected version of DRM, it is carried out in a secure area of the CPU (mobicore). So yes it supports higher resolutions but neither Netflix nor Amazon support non certified phones, you may be able to get round it by changing the build fingerprint. I've not tested it because I have no need for HD video on a 4.7" screen :D.

Bug, or Problem?

Man, help me. I installed the Dot OS 3.0 (Pie) version, until I was able to use it for about 5 - 8 hours, but suddenly he started to stop the interface making me unable to use the phone, first I formatted it thinking it was just a bug , but it remained, I went back to version 2.5 of DotOS (Oreo) but still still giving the same problem ...: /

What exactly is the issue?

Did you wipe /data /system and erase the cache before installing?

Can you provide a logcat of the error?

The issue is the same, the UI interface always stops running and the phone stuck for 45 seconds, after I stop the UI and restart it, the phone stay normal, after aproximately 1 - 2 minutes the problem return and permance in a loop

Yes, I did have a full wipe, data, system, cache, internal storage, etc...

Where I can get the logcat?

You can produce a logcat using this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1726238

Did you install gapps?
If so try a full clean flash but without installing gapps.

Yeah, I tried this and works! The phone back to work perfectly. So much thanks :victory:
But, it's possible to install the xposed with this ROM?

You should be able to install the latest opengapps with DotOS without issue.

I don't think there is official Xposed for Pie, and I have heard that the unofficial is very unstable.
Why do you need xposed?

Yeah, I see the unofficial, I will stay in Oreo, but thanks for the answer :D

I need the xposed for the modules: LTweaks, Gravity Box, Xposed Edge.

Found a little bug

When you drop down the notification panel whilst in landscape and try to close it by tapping in the blank space below the "no notifications" text or around it, the menu bugs out, showing the tiles for a split second and then closing all together.

keep going..

Hello. I have been following dot OS for a long time. I've noticed that during both the trial of both stable and android pie .. The location is wifi hidden. I enter the user name and password manually, but does not recognize it. Although it appears to be a registered wifi network, the connection happens. everything is ok when wifi is removed from the modem interface. We wish to have a small share ..

    This update won't get rolled out via OTA for the next time as many changes in the dotOS team are happening now. I can only tell that much that we could get automated daily builds soon.

    thank you the rom is so smooth, i am happy to use it as my daily phone. but i have a problem with camera, my camera is so laggy, i tried install the other camera app and still got the same issue. i have to reboot the phone to use camera normally, so far my problem just with camera. The other things is so good

    The camera can crash when using google camera, you are best using the default camera app from the ROM.

    A reboot will solve the crash and make it work again.

    Unfortunately the bug is in the closed source HAL and only Samsung has the code for that.

    ---------- Post added at 09:25 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:23 AM ----------

    In general, firmware 8.1 and Android 9 are good, but in the new builds, the 8.1 line and Android 9 come with a reduced write right, the gallery does not display photos and videos from the memory card, and some applications do not have access to the storage, for example, ultronotes.apk (early line builds 8.1 problems nebylo) when will it be fixed?

    I cannot reproduce this issue in the latest DotOS build.

    Are you sure you don't have a corrupt SD card?
