Hello, I have a j500m. Everything works fine. However the sound in the ear speaker volume is very low. I already reset the system and reinstalled and nothing to solve. The first time it was fine. Can you tell me where the audio files are for me to take a look at?

It's REALLY smooth, way more than LOS 17.1, but I really disliked its... well, Samsung interface, so I returned to LOS.
But congratulations on this amazing work. I never thought my J5 would run so buttery smooth.

    In such cases it could be possible that a CSC feature is causing this issue. Try to remove CscFeature_Audio_ConfigCallVolumeSteps from /system/omc/customcsc.xml

      F.A.Q

      Q: How to root it?
      A: Grab Magisk from here.

      Q: Splash screen gets more and more greenish when I try to boot. Is that normal?
      A: Of course not. This means you're not on Marshmallow bootloader & Modem. Flash any MM stock ROM first before you flash this ROM.

      Q: ROM booted but there is no gallery, clock etc. Why did you removed it?
      A: I didn't, YOU debloated them in aroma installer. Reflash the ROM again without wiping data and this time don't debloat them.

      Q: There is no CSC folder in /system. How to add CSC features?
      A: This ROM is featured with OMC, a new multi CSC solution. Locate to /system/omc and add your features to customcsc.xml.

      Q: My GPS does not find my location. Any fix?
      A: Download GPS Test app from Google play, run it, go outside and wait 10 minutes.

      Q: Do I have to clean flash when there is a new update?
      A: No, flash it over a previous version is ok.

      Q: I enabled screen recorder in aroma but I can't find it in settings. How to run screen recorder?
      A: You can find it's settings in settings > advanced features > screen recorder. To start recording, pull down quick settings, search for Screen Capture tile, extend it and select screen recorder.

      Q: XYZ app does not work/force closes and I want create a log to help you. How can I create a logcat?
      A: I'm glad you'd like to help. Follow this xda tutorial or download any logcat app from Google Play.

      Q: Why still no Oreo or Pie port?
      A: Samsung won't update any MSM8916 device to Oreo/Pie anymore.

      Q: Why I can't enable 4G in second SIM?
      A: Galaxy MSM8916 modems don't support dual LTE.

      Q: I've enabled navigation bar but I don't like it. How can I remove it?
      A: Reflash the ROM select everything you did before except nav bar without wiping data.

      Q: Do I have to flash Galaxy A8 2018 mods, recoveries etc. when I use this ROM?
      A: NO! This ROM will not transform your Galaxy to an A8. Only flash mods, recoveries etc. meant for your device variant.

      Q: Mobile data does not work on my J500H...
      A: Upgrade to SEP 8.5 ROM v3.5+

      SEPerience-ROM v5.0 is here! Please read

      f6oy4sbw1gb3hghzg.jpg


      After couple of weeks of hard work here is it, the final update of SEPerience-ROM A8 2018 Port!

      Now I have some words to say about SEPerience-ROM:
      The development of SEPerience-ROM started on January 2018 with the help from my friend @corsicanu. :) I have to be honestly, I felt like a noob at this time, so the first version of SEPerience-ROM was more like a stock-based ROM. And the first release was on 25th February 2018 for the Galaxy A3 2015 (SM-A300FU).
      From time to time I've added new features to the next versions, besides that I've collected more and more experiences how TouchWiz works. At a certain point I've decided to add more devices and variants to SEPerience-ROM. First the support of SM-A300Y then on 9th May 2018 the support of the Galaxy J5 2016! Well the first version of SEPerience-ROM for J5 2016 was awful and full of bugs as I didn't own this device but the next version (v1.5) allowed the J5 2016 users to enjoy SEPerience-ROM too. This support of J5 2016 woke up the attention of the J5 2015 users. So, I got some private messages from J5 2015 users on XDA and Telegram to add support for the Galaxy J5 2015 too, which I did finally on 29th May 2018: the community of SEPerience-ROM got bigger and bigger over time. My favourite work I did for the J5 2015, to be exactly J500H, was the mobile data fix. A lot of J500H users are now able to enjoy TouchWiz 7.1.1 based ROMs with working data traffic.
      However, like in every community, there were dark times for SEPerience-ROM, either here on XDA or in Telegram. Yes, I’m talking about unfair behaviours from the community like respectless, kangs, haters etc. towards to developers. I won’t tell names to avoid a discussion.
      Nevertheless, such events didn’t demotivate me to carry on the development of SEPerience-ROM.
      Before we reached the end of 2018, my friend @corsicanu requested me to add support for the Galaxy A5 2015 to my ROM. Which I did on 30th November 2018. At this time SEPerience-ROM supporting 4 devices now, all with same SoC. I thought this was now the final for my ROM but I saw a lot of improvements was still missing which are included in this update.

      Now I can say: SEPerience-ROM reached it’s final state and there is nothing more to improve or to add… Maybe we’ll meet us in an other Galaxy soon… ;)

      I want to give all my thanks to @corsicanu, @ananjaser1211 and @BlackMesa123 for their help, contributions and support in this period of time. You guys rock!

      Also, all lot of thanks to my testers:
      @mechamon86 @Nealy. @naeem hannon @EBY @Freak3672 @josephpatrick for testing the Unified build for you all.
