@toystory2000 and @ryanvi did you manage to try out that build?

I would be very interested having SM-T727U support added to 17.1. Willing to test and assist with debugging. Also, I'll make a donation if you are still willing to add support.

I've downloaded the file you linked to and installed it. Everything appears to work fine. WiFi 2.4 / 5.0 working. Verizon LTE appears to work (testing limited to talking to Verizon sign up server).

For reference, I did have to take my device thru the SM-T727R4 firmware to achieve OEM Unlock status.

Thanks, RA

Yeah just watching YouTube for example, the sound difference is massive. Sound lacks depth and is very bright and tinny. I've tried things like VIPER to eq it which helps a bit but still not as good.

Its probably because stock comes with Dolby Atmos for the 4 way speakers built in

I did try to install atmos from another thread on XDA but I could not get the app to open

I am running the version from Dec, 26th and I am quite impressed how good it works. Very good job done!
I do have a question/problem with USB. It seems that MTP is somehow not fully functional. Copy more than a file I get an error and connection is lost - device is not seen anymore at (Linux)PC.
USB-OTG (so attaching an USB-Memory-stick) is not working, right?

It is true - Stock speakers sound like as they would be bigger as they are actually. That is very likely to some proprietary sound processing. But I would say the sound is awful now and no reason to blame the dev - that is out of his scope. Or is it possible to include that as binary blobs?
Nevertheless - if someone found a solution to improve that - welcome!

Could install Viper (via Magisk), but honestly - it doesn't seem to work. Anything special to set to get it working? Legacy or compatibility mode?
Mh, even AudioFx doesn't have any effect on the speakers. Can you confirm?

Hello all. i need help by installing this ROM on S5e-LTE.
It is not first custom ROM that i will install on different samsung and other devices.
I try to follow the official installation-guide on LineageOS-website. OEM unlock is done. i will flash "vbmeta" with odin, but it fails by image-verification: "Only official released binares are allowed to be flashed (vbmeta)".
What i do wrong?

Connect to WiFi and make sure oem unlock is still checked.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10 (Q), 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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    @Shade_of_RA I have already added support for all LTE models, in both branches, the active one and development. You can enjoy now.

    For my records and maybe it helps others too to complete a mostly spy-free Tablet
    Download a few files to PC:
    * Magisk 20.4 (latest stable)
    * from FDRoid.org Fdroid app and AFwall

    I flashed Magisk 20.4 (latest stable) directly after flashing the LOS.
    After boot the system I booted back to TWRP and spoofed the ROM as above mentioned.
    Booting into system again I installed FDroid and AFwall first. I configure the firewall to just pass FDroid. Most of my used apps are from there - some others I installed via Aurora - which accesses the Playstore with anonymous account.

    In FDroid I added a new packet source: mircroG.org/fdroid/repo.
    In installed from there the latest microG core, framework, Fakestore and Nlp backends.
    Give them rights to pass firewall and do microG selfcheck.

    Hello, can anyone help? I installed lineage, but I can't log in to the kindl apk. I can install but at login time the login screen does not appear. On my Mi 8, with lineage and root I can install and log in to kindle.

    Didn't used it for a while, so I installed it now on my LOS S5e. Although I don't give any login data it knows my name and starts synchronizing. That was a bit scary to me! WTF !?!? But it works....
    ( I am running it with Magisk 20.4 + microG - no gapps are involved).
