LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1 (Oreo), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Dirty Flashing from 14.1 did not work for me. Device boots completely but hangs after 20s of usage. Maybe there is an incompatible app, thats making my device crash. I'll try it from scratch in some days again. But thank you for all your work!

This will be my daily driver from today on. Thanks so much kyasu! Switching on and off Bluetooth and WiFi seems to interfere somehow, but everything else seems to work fine for the moment!
Did you consider posting a donation link @kyasu ?

Big bug for me. If you set screen lock as pattern or pin you can't unlock phone because SystemUI crashes so I can't add Credit Card to Android Pay.

EDIT: OK work but there is some delay. If the process interrupted you don't able to unlock screen. To fix this you must Reboot to Recovery and go to Advanced-->File Manager. Navigate to /data/system and delete all locksettings databases.

Camera LED doesn't work too.
Pin works fine here. Also led flash is working fine for me with footej camera app. Switching flight mode off from power menu does not work, but there is also the quick settings tile for this, so nothing to worry about. This is very stable and some features work even better than with los14.1 (torch tile, switching cameras delay...).
One more thing: Switching selinux to enforcing works also for me, so no problem using Netflix and other apps, which depend on this.

I don't think the wakeup delay problem is specific to the Korean version. I'm experiencing this bug on an international Galaxy S4 LTE-A. On stock the keys light up right away and the screen immediately after. On your roms the keys light up immediately, but the screen takes about a second to wake up.

Thanks for all your work, nonetheless. This is a great ROM, thanks for keeping ks01lte alive.

When I try to set pin settings froze. I rebooted phone and tried to unlock, but it's relocking continously. You only set PIN from settings and it worked?
Yes I did nothing special. I just changed to a pattern, unlocked once and changed back to my pin. No problems whatsoever.
I have the wakeup delay too with the international version, but I am already used to it since 14.1 :cool:
