Dear Faltisal and members of the forum,

first I wish to thank you, Faltisal, for the great work! My old SM-J320F works like a charm now.
But, as far as I can see, without one crucial exception: GPS seem not to work properly. That means, it "works", but the results are similar to a random-generator … ;)
I have followed exactly the instruction from above (wiped data, system and cache first) and tried to install both versions, which I have found:
lineage-13.0-20180208-UNOFFICIAL-j3xnlte.zip
and
lineage-13.0-20171128-UNOFFICIAL-j3xnlte.zip

I have read many of the articles in this thread now, and it seems to me, that I'm the only one with this problem.
So, what may I have done wrong?
(I hope, this thread is still actual?)

Thank you
Christoph

Whats up everyone!

I was planning on trying this rom out on my SM-J320FN. I've used a few custom roms on other devices before so have basic experience but before I take the jump I just wanted to check the Gapps I need is the "ARM 6.0 Stock"? It's my main everyday use phone so I really can't afford to screw it up but I'm sick of using 5.1.1 and its lack of ability to use the external SD card properly (I have a 64 gig card which is basically used for the camera). I'm already rooted and know there are plenty of work-arounds for this using Xposed but I'd rather be on Marshmallow anyway ;)

Thanks :)

*edit* After choosing the package mentioned above I got into the OS and the pixel launcher would crash non stop. I managed to get into the playstore and install Nova launcher so I could at least use the system for a while. I installed Magisk and then uninstalled the pixel launcher and all is fine now. I read that installing older versions of Gapps would fix this but Nova launcher works fine so all good.

Thanks for the great Rom and everyone else who posted in this thread with help and info!

    Lineage OS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 6 (Marshmallow), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    Code:
    /*  
    * Your warranty is... still valid?  
    *  
    * I am 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 me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.  
    */

    Introduction
    Lineage OS 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). Lineage OS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

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

    Installation instructions

    How to use all benefits of LineageOS 13 with F2FS file system support

    What you need?

    -You need to download today's build and recovery with f2fs support you can find all necessary information on page 112. Official LineageOS thread post by djeman.

    How to flash?

    -After downloading twrp recovery from djeman link you need to flash it via Odin on same way like you flashed current TWRP recovery.

    Before changing file system:

    -Move today's build to sdcard(important) and opengapps pico 6.0 ARM package to sdcard(optional, if you want to have Google Play Store).

    Formatting from ext4 to F2FS (Friendly To Flash File System)

    -With next step you lose all your data stored on phone.
    Go to wipe and tap on Advanced Wipe, select all except SD Card and USB OTG and Swipe to wipe.
    After wipe completed, return back to Advanced Wipe and select(check) Data and Internal Storage and tap on Fix Repair or change file system, now tap on Change File System and tap on F2FS and swipe to change file system.
    Yay, you successfully changed file system to F2FS.

    Flashing LineageOS 13 build with F2FS support

    -Return to TWRP home and select install, tap on select storage select MicroSD Card locate zip file of LineageOS 13(5th August 2017. Build) swipe to install.

    *OPTIONAL
    You can flash opengapps package.


    To keep F2FS File System

    -Now go to TWRP Home-> Settings and check Use rm instead -rf it's VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE WHEN SELECT THIS TWRP KEEP F2FS PARTITION, AND don't change to ext4 when you Restoring backup(but not to possible to run older builds because they don't have f2fs file system support).


    I hope that's I help with this short guide and its is easy for beginners and all others who hates to read long long guides :D
