    Replaced with official builds.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9.0 (Pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    Code:
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you 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.
     *
     */
    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.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

    LineageOS 16.0 Install Guide


    Note: LineageOS for Galaxy S4 Active is provided with no warranty. You are installing this software at your own risk. You may be violating your warranty.


    Download LineageOS and gapps zips and put in /sdcard


    Latest build: http://www.mediafire.com/file/nxgfl6b9z545ql2/lineage-16.0-20190723-UNOFFICIAL-jactivelte.zip/file

    Builds Archive

    Google Apps (MindTheGapps is recommended. Pick ARM, not ARM64)

    Before you install LineageOS: Preparation
    (Optional. If you want to start fresh, these can be skipped)
    Install Easy Backup & Restore from Market, run it and backup your stuff.
    Boot into recovery. Make a full backup. You will need this backup later if you decide to go back to your previous ROM and data.
    I suggest using this TWRP: http://www.mediafire.com/file/18vo85kssa8caqq/twrp-3.2.3-0-jactivelte.img.tar.md5/file

    WARNING: Many apps will Force Close crash if you restore data from a previous ROM.

    Install

    Boot into recovery.
    Wipe data and cache.
    Flash lineage-16*.zip.
    Flash gapps*.zip.
    Reboot phone.
    After you setup your Google account, reinstall Easy Backup & Restore from Market in order to restore most of your apps, call log and SMS history.

    Warning:
    Do not restore backup data of system apps!

    If you restore a bad backup with cached settings in telephony.db in data/data/com.*.*.telephony it can break MMS.
    It seems that restoring backups can also break Calendar sync.

    Upgrades

    Upgrades from previous builds of LineageOS 16.0 are the same process as install, except you do not need to wipe anything. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to even wipe cache and dalvik-cache when upgrading between LineageOS 16.0 versions. You only need to wipe if you are doing a major upgrade, switching to a different ROM entirely, or attempting to fix bugs caused by bad backups or corrupt app data.

    This ROM should be fully working, as in there's currently no known broken things.

    No problems with wifi on first boot here. Also dialer code works fine here.

    May I ask what gapps you used? If you used OpenGapps, I don't recommend any other packages than pico or nano. OpenGapps are known for replacing critical system files in Lineage with their own, thus causing all sorts of issues. That's why I stick with MindTheGapps personally.

    I used pico gapps, wifi and sim problem aside, everything is working fine on the phone.

    I've installed it today without gapps - everything is working fine, but sometimes I encount freezes of systemUI, and if I try to mod anything in system folder or to clear the system with SDMaid then sometime Wi-Fi (sometimes Bluetooth or mobile internet) do not launch. This bugs fixes with the phone reboot.
    Also "Led notifications" for apps (even stok one, such as messaging or missed phones) do not work, but work for battery.

    But, however, thanks a lot for this android!

    I wonder what is SisUI in the quick settings, can anyone explain it?


    PS: sorry for my English a lot.

    Could you test:
    1. Audio Mod from @wilsonhlacerda that improves speaker and mic,more info:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=79522919&postcount=798
    And maybe you can even use it to replace default file ()when building new releases? (example: mixer_paths-LOS2019-IncreaseDualSpk_IncreaseBothMic_Fix-byWilsonhlacerda.xml)

    2. whether there is a bug with bluetooth (when you turn it on you call log will be cleared) observed in earlier versions of LineageOS sources (14.1)

    thanks in advance

    Hi @arco68 thanks for this new updated LOS for our devices!

    Good to see you building it! I already know your good work to S4 Mini (my girlfriend's backup device; thanks!) and thus I also know how good you can contribute to S4 Active community.

    I myself have an S4 Active I9295 as my daily device (currently with LOS14.1, thanks to @_JaSoN_ and @tsvetkov_vlad and old developers of it) and sure I'll try your LOS16 now!

    By the way, my girlfriend main device is also an I9295 but unfortunately last week it started to fail SIM phone calls audio (I did some tests and it seems the audio hardware is dead....thru bluetooth audio works fine). Then she is currently using the I9192 with your LOS16 for SIM calls.

    ---------- Post added at 02:19 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:32 AM ----------

    I've just seen that you suggest to use your own (really yours?) TWRP v3.2.3 on OP. Why it and not the official TWRP v3.3.1? Or even the official v3.2.3?


    Have you detected any problems with v3.3.x? Or with official TWRP in general?

    Hi, just re-flashed this rom cause of SMS not working and unfortunately something happened weird.
    Reddit, Twitter and other apps including XDA Labs doesn't let me sign in and doesn't sync i think? Both twitter and reddit works on my TB3-850M while my I9295 doesn't, i did a restore of my stock rom and both apps let me in and refresh the feed.On my first install of this ROM everything works fine except for SMS, i've been doing re-flashes and wipes all over again however the problem doesn't persist, I hope someone helps me on this matter.
