Hi !
Thanks for this ROM.
What is the step by step procedure to install it ? What i have to check and do ?
Thanks !
Regards.

just check the FAQ section under the first Post:

How do I install this ROM on my phone for the first time?

Here is a short tutorial how to install the ROM:

Install our TWRP recovery. See FAQ section in the TWRP recovery thread.
Copy the ROM ZIP file an external SD card
Boot into the recovery
Wipe cache and dalvik
Format data
Flash the ROM (and e.g. gapps)
Reboot to system

---------- Post added at 06:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:20 PM ----------

The TWRP decrypt looks for the trustzone like a failed attempt so it locks it for 1d as a safety measure. See the FAQ on the first page for more details.

If this happens you have to power the phone down. Wait a few minutes start your phone again, try to unlock it, if it fails and you get 86400 message power it down again. After 2 or 3 times of power down and start you should be able to login again (and yes complete shutdown, no restart). You don't have to wait one day...

Thank you!
OK, that means we have two options,
using the Rom without a lock, or with Lock and if the problem appears, using the off and on method described by Stef4n.
Until the problem is fixed in the future

by the way is it possible to Implement the new lineageos thermal profiles wich has been added to some xiaomi phones (review(dot)lineageos(dot)org/c/LineageOS/android_device_xiaomi_sdm845-common/+/275680) to our phone?
Or is it too difficult because of our exynos?!

This requires /sys/class/thermal/thermal_message/sconfig which we don't have. I guess it is a qcom thing.

Proximity sensor not working in apps

Hi, I have tried two different push up apps (here and here) which usually make use of the proximity sensor. The sensor does not seem to work properly with apps on the S10e (stock firmware) though. Even DevCheck does not seem to get the sensor activated. It works for phone calls and if I access the sensor menu through *# shortcut, it is also working fine.

Can anyone confirm (or perhaps kindly check for me) whether the sensor is working with apps in LOS?

Many thanks and keep up the excellent work!

My S10+ was before flashing the LOS 17 a vodafone branded phone. Does it make differences for a firmware update if i flash the DBT firmware or do i have to flash the VD2 firmware? Or is this only interesting if you run a stock ROM?

The latter: only relevant for stock.

can i use the build in updater of this rom?
Only when it is build by the official LOS servers (if it where, it would be an official LOS build).

thank you, no its this one from this thread here.
so updating works by flashing the zip over it by twrp?
its my first time i ve rooted the s10+, it was a lot more complex and difficult compared to previous galaxys.

my volume is very low sometimes, even with max out settings, it seems to vary. any fixes ideas to this?

This is sadly an issue that occurs with LOS roms on Samsung devices since the beginning of LOS. It has been pointed out by many users but the developers don't care unfortunately...

The microphone volume is also very low you'll notice I had the exact same issue with my S5 and A5 2017.

This really is the only thing that keeps me from flashing this rom

Ok, I finally managed to boot into LineageOS. I reinstalled it but skipped installing GApps this time!
I was trying to install GApps Stock before. Could that be a problem? I know the advice is GApps Pico, but I also want to have the other apps anyways, so decide to try GApps Stock.

With GApps Mini is seems to be working fine now. Not sure why GApps Stock didn't work though.

Hmm, now I have an issue during the first setup. When it's about to finish the setup, it starts checking information and then the screen goes black. I only see a small back arrow on the bottom, but that just vibrates my phone.
Taking a screenshot and rebooting still works and I also see the notification bar, but that's about it.

And during boot I also get the two Samsung warning screens: one telling me the phone is unlocked and I need to press the power button (or wait a little) and the other one with a red text about not running an official ROM. I guess the only way to get rid of these is by installing the patch from https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=81770511&postcount=561 ?

[update]
After some reinstalls and different GApps (also got GApps Stock booting fine), I am now in a situation where Google Play Services keeps crashing. During the initial setup I get to the screen where it's checking for updates and then checking information, then it flashes and restarts checking updates.
When I used GApps Mini I was able to finish the setup, but somehow I didn't have a keyboard installed other than Google Voice Keyboard. And that one isn't usable for entering passwords so I couldn't login to my Google Account and Google Play Store to install anything else. That's why I finally installed GApps Stock. And by skipping parts of the setup I could finish it. But still Google Play Services keeps crashing constantly, so I can hardly do anything.

Also the fingerprint-scanner doesn't seem to work very well. When I press my thumb on it, it vibrates but doesn't increase the circular bar. After several tries, I get a message it didn't work in time. I had the same issue before using Ivans ROM, but it was working fine on stock ROM.

And I assumed this was a pure LineageOS, but I noticed a few apps I didn't see on other LineageOS ROMS:
- Aurora Store
- F-Droid
- UnifiedNlp

Could you please explain how you got GApps Stock working?
When I flash GApps Stock and want to restart to system after, It always boots to Recovery. GApps Nano for example works fine.

Great release, been loving the ROM, thank you very much!

I'm having an issue with frequent WiFi drops. The connection sometimes gets dropped completely, where the WiFi icon turns empty with an X indicator. My connection is generally quite weak, but I never ran into this issue on stock Samsung. Is it possible that the firmware update or the ROM itself had an effect on the radio? I am in North America and flashed the generic UK firmware. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, it could be. Different countries allow different frequencies to be used.

while calling my ear often accidently hits the "mute microphone" button. I havent had that before. Is there anything i could tweak with the sensors which disables the screen when holding the phone to the ear?

This problem was faced in the previous lineages 15, 16. A fix was found by correcting the values inside the "mixer_paths" file contained in system/vendor/etc . Have anyone tried this?

    Installation:

    How do I install this ROM on my phone for the first time?
    Below you find a brief checklist of the required installation steps. Installation is more complicated than other ROMs because we take device security very seriously. If you are unfamiliar with installing custom roms , please click the links and read the additional details there.

    • Confirm the firmware version
      • Check the top of the ChangeLog which firmware version is required for the ROM release to work well
      • Go to settings/software-update and update only if the new version matches the requirement!
      • Alternative: flash with odin/heimdall (details see below)
    • Unlock your device
      • Backup all data, unlocking will factory reset your phone
      • Enable developer mode to and enable the OEM-unlock switch there
      • Turn off device and boot to bootloader (hold VolumeDown + Bixby, then connect USB cable)
      • Follow instructions on-screen
      • Finish the initial setup after unlock. You must connect to WiFi, but can skip everything else. Do not specify a pin/pattern during setup afterwards, otherwise TWRP may cause the "try again after 86400 seconds" issue (see below)
      • Confirm in the settings that the bootloader is actually unlocked. (greyed out, telling you its unlocked)
    • Install our TWRP (official thread) | more details (thanks @AndrOdin)
      • Download our TWRP recovery and the vbmeta-disabled.img file
      • Unpack the .xz file with 7zip
      • Check integrity of TWRP (optional, but important for security)
      • Rename files to recovery.img and vbmeta.img; then pack both files together in a .tar archive with 7zip
      • Install Samsung USB drivers and odin, (direct link)
      • Start odin as admin, disable "Auto Reboot" and click "AP "to select the .tar archive
      • Turn off device, boot to bootloader and, once odin detects it, click "Start"
      • When the screen turns off, immediately hold (and keep holding) VolumeUp + Bixby + Power to enter recovery mode
      • When the secondary warning appears, release everything but VolumeUp
      • Swipe slider to allow for modification
    • Install LinageOS
      • copy the ROM ZIP file an external SD card
      • Boot into the recovery
      • Wipe cache + dalvik (wipe->advanced and select cache + dalvik)
      • Format data (wipe->format data, use the dedicated button, wipe->advanced does not work)
      • Flash the ROM (install -> select storage -> micro SD card and select the .zip file)
      • Optional: Flash GAPPS (e.g. OpenGAPPS)
      • Reboot to system

    How do I update LineageOS?
    Updating LinageOS is a lot less work and you can keep all user data. The process is similar to the last part of the installation:

    • Backup all important files optional, but very helpful if something goes wrong)
    • Remove any pin/password/pattern to prevent "retry after 86400 seconds"
    • Copy the ROM ZIP file an external SD card or internal storage; download the new firmware files to PC (if needed)
    • Boot into the recovery, do not reboot until you've installed the new ROM and firmware
    • Flash the ROM (install -> select storage -> micro SD card and select the .zip file)
    • (Optional: Update GAPPS to the latest version)
    • Wipe dalvik and cache
    • Reboot to download
    • Flash new firmware with instructions below
    • (Optional: if you use Magisk, flash the new BOOT file. You can also do this in previous step instead of using Stef4n82's "BL.tar" file.)
    • Reboot to system


    How do I update the firmware?
    On the stock ROM you can update from the settings menu. You can't do this on lineageOS (yet), so ypu need to use use Odin or Heimdall instead.

    How do I update the firmware manually?
    Thanks to @Stef4n82's new instructions and repacked firmware files installation is easier than ever. Below you find a copy of his post:

    If you use Heimdall:

    1. Download the latest firmwarepackge for your device: "G97?F_Firmwareupdate_Heimdall_????.tar.gz"
    2. Extract the package
    3. Flash the firmware files with this command:
    Code:
    heimdall flash \
        --BOOTLOADER sboot.bin \
        --PARAM param.bin \
        --UP_PARAM up_param.bin \
        --CM cm.bin \
        --KEYSTORAGE keystorage.bin \
        --UH uh.bin \
        --DTB dt.img \
        --RADIO modem.bin \
        --CP_DEBUG modem_debug.bin

    If you use Odin:
    1. Download the latest firmwarepackge for your device: "G97?F_Firmwareupdate_Odin_????.zip"
    2. Extract the package and you will get an AP.tar, a BL.tar and a CP...tar.md5
    3. Flash the 3 files with Odin (tested with latest Odin 3.14.x)

    You can download the repacked firmware from the links below.
    1. S10
    2. S10e
    3. S10+

    If you don't want this repacked firmware packages and want to download the whole firmware by your own. Make sure if you flash it via Odin that you use this files:

    1. From AP_G97?FXX*.tar.md5 take the dt.img and create a new AP.tar
    2. CP_G97?FXX*.tar.md5
    3. Extract BL_G97?FXX*.tar.md5 and create a new BL.tar without the vbmeta.img.lz4


    Try again after 86400 seconds?
    With newer version of the Samsung blobs, if you unlock the storage (/data) with TWRP (ie. you enter your pin/password/pattern in TWRP), the trustzone thinks it is a failed attempt and will lock the storage unlocking for 1 day (86400 seconds). To prevent this do not enter your pin (press cancel) and you can still flash an update. If you tripped the trustzone you can either wayt for 1 day to unlock your device (do not power it off) or try rebooting the phone a few times (thanks @Stef4n82), or this slightly more detailed guide (thanks @Exilion90)

    You can prevent this completely by removing any pin/password/pattern before entering recovery. This does remove all stored fingerprints, so you'll have to set the up again after the update.



    3rd Party Software:

    How do I install Google apps?
    You can download and install the Google Apps from Open Gapps Project. You need ARM64 and 10.x. We suggest to always use the pico package. If you need additional apps you find them in the Play Store.

    Put the Open Gapps ZIP file on your SD card and flash it directly after you flashed LineageOS and before the first boot!


    Can I use GPay? What about other banking apps
    GPay as well as some other banking apps check if the device passes safetynet and will not start if it doesn't. Safetynet fails when the bootloader is unlocked and therefore this ROM will not run GPay and other applications that need it. This official LineageOS statement explains why safetynett will never by bypassed (by default).

    Safetynet used to be easy to bypass with Magisk, but since an Update eralier this year Google uses the TPM module and that can't be circumvented easily. However there might be a workaround with "MagiskHide Props Config", please check out this post and this one. (thanks @Stef4n82) Please note that this has not yet been tested and we can not provide any support. If you got it working on your device, please share how you've done it so we can add it here!

    How do I get MicroG with this ROM?
    MicroG is an open source alternative to GAPPS. , but unfortunately not recently updated and therefore not recommended.

    If you want to install it anyway, read this guide by @JoeRifle and this post (appendum) by @ned14 . Update: It has been reported that the new MicroG version works without issues. (thanks @ichmyselfandi)


    Does this ROM have root?
    Not by default. If you need root (eg. for AFWall) you can get it through Magisk.

    How do I install Magisk?
    Important security Advice: Don't flash Magisk modules or anything else which sets SELinux to permissive or you open your device for malware!

    Option 1 (recommended):

    • Download the boot image for Magisk: S10e -- S10 -- S10+
    • Verify the integrity of the file -> See INTEGRITY
    • Unzip the boot image using xz or p7zip
    • (Needed for Odin) Rename the file to boot.img and use 7zip to pack it into a .tar file
    • Flash the boot image to the BOOT partition using Odin, Heimdall or TWRP
    • Install https://******************/

    Option 2:


    Which camera app do you suggest?
    OpenCamera:
    Great open source app that supports a lot of the camera's features with the camera API v2 (select this option in the settings):
    • All cameras supported (except telephoto, this is a issue with the ROM)
    • Manual change of exposure, aperture, shutter speed, ISO
    • The (main) developer uses an S10e himself so you can expect good HW support :p
    You can get it from F-Droid or Play Store

    GCam Variants:
    There is no "official" GCam for this ROM, but there are some that work. Please read this excelent post by @ned14 for more details. The current recommendation is "GCam_5.1.018.177470874.41362666_IDan_N6_3.5_fix.apk" from (IDan). You need GAPPS, microG (post) or the Google Service Framework(post).

    In comparison to OpenCamera it sacrifices manual controls + extra lenses for:
    • simpler user interface
    • better single-shot HDR
    • better panoramas + photospheres
    • SlowMo video (1080p @120/240fps)
    I've also written a more detailed comparison. You can have both camera apps installed at the same time, so you can always choose the better one depending on the scenario.


    Getting Help:

    General:
    Before you post, please check this FAQ, use the search function and skim the few last pages of this thread. We want LinageOS to work on your device, that's the whole point of this thread, but this way you can get the fastest help. If you did not find an answer, feel free to ask here :) We do this in out free time and it may take us some time to answer, so please be patient.

    How to report a bug?
    To fix any bug we first have to be able to reproduce it. Please include all relevant information:
    • device (S10e/S10/S10+)
    • ROM version
    • is gapps/ microg/ magisk installed?
    • steps to reproduce the issue

    When in doubt it's better to include to 0much information than too little. A good example is @Sheffield Steve's bug report. Check out Simon's "How to Report Bugs Effectively" to write even better reports (and thus get better help).

    How to create a logfile?
    To get an even better insight into your issue, a logfile can help us a lot. On Android this is called "logcat". Short logcats are best. They contain less fluff which makes finding the issue easier. Here are the steps how to create a log with adb:

    • install adb drivers
    • open cmd and navigate to the adb file eg. cd C:\Users\<user>\Desktop\platform-tools
    • Connect your phone via USB
    • Select "Allow USB Debugging" on the popup on the phone (see below how to activate it)
    • Clear the log using: adb logcat -c
    • Start loggingwith: adb logcat | tee beyond.log
    • Reproduce the issue
    • Stop logging by pressing CTRL+c
    • Send us the log (in a PM)

    How do I enable USB Debugging?
    To enable USB Debugging you need to do the following steps:

    • Go to Settings -> About Phone
    • Look for Build number
    • Tap on Build Number several times till you get the message that Developer Options have been enabled
    • Go to Settings -> System -> Advanced -> Developer Options
    • Enable USB Debugging

    What is difference between this and Ivan's lineage os?

    The most obvious one is that we provide SELinux enforcing and care about security and privacy. For the rest I can't give you an answer as Ivan doesn't want to release the source of his device tree. It would be great if Ivan would join our effort and contribute.
