LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device. All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. If you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

Code:
 * [B][U]Your warranty is now void.[/U][/B]
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or your 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 us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
(Please read them BEFORE posting anything in the thread!)
Q: Whenever I try flashing any lineage-16.0 build, I get the following error in TWRP: Updater process ended with ERROR: 7
A: This error appears whenever you try to flash an Oreo-based rom within a version of TWRP older than 3.2. Simply flash the linked below version 3.2 or higher, reboot back into recovery, and flash the rom zip again.

Q: Why is my phone warmer/hotter and the battery noticeably drained after flashing a build?
A: The wipe process that is a part of the installation procedure deletes some important configuration data, ie. BATTERYSTATS, which keep track of the battery's power level. These data ensure a balanced power management profile for all the hardware components of your phone. This is normal and nothing to worry about at all. Your battery drain will return to normal within a day or two.

If, however, you notice increased battery drain over a few days, check your signal. Android automatically re-directs battery power to the antennas to compensate for a weak signal from the tower to which your phone is connected at that time. If your signal is strong, check the following:
1) You missed one of the Wipe steps in the flashing procedure.
2) You are running an old bootloader or modem. Flash the most recent one listed for your variant under the links in the TWRP thread. Note: Use the "AP" button in Odin to flash ripee's combined BL_CP tar files.
3) How old is your battery? Official replacement Samsung batteries typically last around 1 year if you recharge them regularly, ie. once a day. Since the Galaxy S4 Value Edition over 5 years old, it is normal for your original battery to start failing, but official Samsung batteries should not cost more than USD 20 nowadays.
4) If all else fails, start over! Go through the entire installation procedure, including flashing a stock Marshmallow build, and going from there. Do NOT skip any steps this time!

Q: Will jfvelte ever receive official builds from LineageOS?
A: YES! The first official Pie build was released on 0818!

Q: How often will new builds be released?
A: There will be no further unofficial builds on a regular basis, only whenever a new feature or bug fix is being tested. Please discuss all future unofficial builds with me via pm or on Telegram.

Typically if you do not do a Clean Install then you are not allowed to report errors or problems. If you Dirty Install and you do have problems then you will be asked to Wipe All and Clean Install and see if the problems still exist. This is a DAILY changing rom and any bug that you found was not working on the previous day's build may be fixed with todays daily build. On a side note, the code implemented to fix that bug could potentially break something that worked on that previous build. So reporting problems on a day old build that you dirty flashed over whichever build of whichever rom you had flashed previously will not be accepted as a true error.

Problems known to happen after a Dirty Installation
1. A muddled up mess of a system. You are taking a rom and installing a newer rom with changes over the top of your old rom. Between these two periods of time during which you used your phone and created data, changed system options, and used apps. This is absolutely increasing the risk of causing problems somewhere in the system/data partitions. Some people have luck with Dirty Flashing. However, it's always hit-and-miss because of what we mentioned above about bug fixes breaking previously working functions. Dirty flashing doesn't only create problems if the source code of the system data and the system settings of the new build are significantly different from those of your previous build. That's not to say that Clean Installing won't ever create problems, but only bugs present on a Cleanly Installed rom are relevant for development purposes.

* Clean Install: Fully wiping everything and installing the rom onto a fully clean system/data partition of the phone.

* Dirty Install: Installing the rom and GApps over top of the older rom to save time and not have to reinstall all the user apps and tweaking system and app settings that usually take a lot of time to set up as you like.

I can't find the app stop option at startup as lineage os 14.1

I don't fully understand what you mean. I don't remember if this was a feature in 14.1, but if it was, it has been removed in 16.0.

If you want to disable an app so that it's hidden, you have to do it in its settings. You have to do this for every app you want to hide.

How is the battery drain and the speed on this ROM? Stability?
I have not changed the ROM on this phone for a very long time!
Currently I am still using CM13, which (except for a sometimes rather buggy camera access) works pretty well. The battery drain and speed is not perfect, but who expects this on a phone this old. It is enough to use it daily without pain.

But I can already say thank you very much for this ROM and for keeping this device alive. I am really suriprised to see a rather uncommon device still supported after so many years.

Strange that only lineage 15 and 16 don't work for me. All the other custom roms I tested worked, including lineage 14.1... Even so, thank you very much and sorry for the inconvenience

Its over 36hrs+ that I installed this rom & I didnt have any issue, its amazing and thanks to everyone who is making this happen.

I can't find the app stop option at startup as lineage os 14.1

You need to enable Developer options by going to Settings > About phone > scroll to the end and tap 7 or so times on Build number.

Then go back to Settings > System > Advanced > Developer options > Memory > Apps started on boot...
Then you can enable and disable for each individual apps including other permissions.

Respect and appreciate your efforts @ripee for making ROM for this device on Pie:good::victory:
Using your 1st build since a week and the device works without issues. Battery is definitely better than Oreo.
Thanks for release!
