A guide for how to install Lineage OS [ GSI ] on Samsung A10 A105F

Notes / Warning!
Use at your own risk, I’m not responsible for bricking your device.
Make sure to backup your important data before everything.

here is a summary of the steps I am going to show
you in this guide:
1. unlock bootloader
2. flash root file for magisk.
3. install magisk (app)
4. flash TWRP recovery via flashify app
5. install the rom with twrp
6. install gapps

let's get started.

samsung usb drivers:


root file:

twrp file:

magisk app:

flashify app:

our device is ARM 32-bit with 64-bit binder, AB so we need to download a64_bvN type.
direct link:

choose arm platform android version 9.0
direct link:

Enable Developer Options: go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.
Enable OEM unlock ( Settings -> Developer options )
How to Enter Download Mode:
Enter Download Mode ( Turn Power off the phone, Press and hold Volume Down + Volume Up keys together then while pressing these keys connecting the phone to PC with USB Cable Data, release all keys when Download Mode appears ).

Unlock Bootloader: In Download Mode you see the long-press Vol Up option to enter Device Unlock Mode. Unlock the bootloader ( that will wipe your device so be sure to backup of your data )
Read the description on the Unlock Bootloader screen then use Volume Up to select “YES” to confirm and “No” to cancel unlock bootloader and restart the phone.
After Bootloader unlock, the phone will reboot and make sure the phone connected to the internet or triggers KG State / RMM State Prenormal.

After installing root; the phone is not running samsung official software.
And android does not start.

version 64 does not work, only 32.

for install root and twrt use this tutorial: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a10/how-to/how-to-root-samsung-galaxy-a10-install-t4074343

Followed this same root guide and after flashed linage os 17.1 a64_bvN type with recovery. It worked successfully.


Despite not having service ,in the place im in right now, it also works. Both SIM cards work

Thanks a lot guys!

I successfully installed Linage OS 17.1 on my SM-A105FN.
Everything works, except face-unlock and nfc.
But that is fine and I can wait for a future update that might fix it.

Thanks for the tutorial!:laugh::good:

How did you do that, Could work on a105m?
I have made a thread of how to install it and the websites for where to get them. But if you want I'll leave one here because the one i linked in my thread is different.
(^ is for lineage os 17.1)

give me error 20 on gapps
install correct gsi image or gapps
Samsung Galaxy A10 is arm32 binder64-ab type (even though in the treble check app is says a only)
and make sure you factory reset after flashing rom. and BEFORE installing gapps

Thank you for the port, awesome job!
In my opinion it needs some improvements, like in sound, we lost quality, and maximum volume in respect to stock one.
Also the notification bar gets a small black bar in the top, stock one was using all the edges.
And maybe a little hand in some animations that runs randomly not smooth.
Apart from that, i think its a really good and stable ROM.
Any ideas in how to safely root, and maybe add it Viper4Android or some audio lib?
