This is the NightOwl LineageOS 15.1 Android 8.1.0 Beta3 built from source for the Galaxy Note 1 GT-N7000/GT-N7000B

This LineageOS 15.1 based ROM is in Beta state and not ready for all day usage.
The main functions are working but there will be bugs!


Code:
Use my Roms only if you are sure about the risks of flashing custom Roms/Kernel to your device. I'm not responsible for any damage caused by using one of my files.

NOTE:
Because of the Rom Size and the ART runtime since Android 5 all Apps will need more space. If you want to install the rom together with Gapps you need to repartition your internal storage.
You can find more informations in the Howto Install section.


Changes:
Beta3:
* Updated los sources
* August security patches
* Fix mic-gain when multiple input streams are used
* Go settings without lowram flag set
* Acelerometer fixed

Older Changes:
Alpha2:
* Updated los sources
* April security patches
* First start wizard is working with installed gapps
* Youtube is working
* Added power profile settings
* Video playback mostly working
* Whatsapp videocalls working
Alpha1:
* First public release


Known Bugs Beta3:

* Installed gapps will cause a battery drain about 10%/h in standby
A part of the battery drain is caused by Wifi scanning which keeps Wifi always active.
Turn Wi-Fi Scanning off here: Settings -> Security & Privacy -> Location -> Scanning ->Wi-Fi scanning
This will reduce the battery drain but still something other (Ril?) is draining the battery too.
* If you get asked to instal/fix root/supersu in the recovery select no!
* Usb dialog not working. you can enable mtp mode in the developer settings
* Adoptable storage is not working (don't format your sdcard as internal!)
* Because of the rom size you need to repartition your /system and /data partition if you want to install gapps

How to Install:
If you are running a custom Kitkat(4.4) or newer Rom:
1. Copy Rom + Google Apps + recovery-twrp3.1.0-build2-isorec-n7000.zip + lanchon-repit-20170115-system=1536M+keep-data=6G+keep-sdcard=max+keep-preload=same+keep-n7000.zip to your external sdcard
2. Boot into recovery
3. Factory Reset + Format the /system partition
4. Flash the Rom zip file (without gapps in this step)
5. Flash recovery-twrp3.1.0-build2-isorec-n7000.zip
6. Reboot the recovery to enter the twrp isorec recovery
7. Flash lanchon-repit-20170115-system=1536M+keep-data=6G+keep-sdcard=max+keep-preload=same+keep-n7000.zip (Read the instructions in How to repartition your device!)
8. Flash gapps
9. Reboot

The steps to install it from an stock samsung rom are:
If you have already an samsung 4.1.x running you can skip step 1

1.flash N7000ZSLR1_N7000OZSLR1_BRI (or any other other 4.1.2) stock rom using odin
2.Copy Rom + Google Apps + recovery-twrp3.1.0-build2-isorec-n7000.zip + lanchon-repit-20170115-system=1536M+keep-data=6G+keep-sdcard=max+keep-preload=same+keep-n7000.zip to your external sdcard
3.flash PhilZ-cwm6-XXLT6-XSA-5.06.1.tar.md5 (https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=745425885120702299) to get cwm recovery with odin
4. boot into recovery
5. flash this kernel http://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/dl/?id=20863 to get an updated recovery
(this step will make your old rom unbootable stuck in the n7000 screen but you can boot into recovery with press and hold "home" and "volume+" buttons and power on your phone)
6. you need to reboot! your device now to recovery
7. you are now in the updated recovery and you need to do a factory reset + format the /system partition
8. Flash the Rom zip file (without gapps in this step)
9. Flash recovery-twrp3.1.0-build2-isorec-n7000.zip
10. Reboot the recovery to enter the twrp isorec recovery
11. Flash lanchon-repit-20170115-system=1536M+keep-data=6G+keep-sdcard=max+keep-preload=same+keep-n7000.zip (Read the instructions in How to repartition your device!)
12. Flash gapps
13. Reboot

Updating If you are running an earlier NightOwl LineageOS 15.1 alpha version:
1. Copy Rom + recovery-twrp3.1.0-build2-isorec-n7000.zip + lanchon-repit-20170115-system=1536M+keep-data=6G+keep-sdcard=max+keep-preload=same+keep-n7000.zip to your external sdcard
2. Boot into recovery
3. Flash recovery-twrp3.1.0-build2-isorec-n7000.zip
4. Reboot the recovery to enter the twrp isorec recovery
5. Flash lanchon-repit-20170115-system=1536M+keep-data=6G+keep-sdcard=max+keep-preload=same+keep-n7000.zip (Read the instructions in How to repartition your device!)
6. Flash the Rom zip file
7. wipe dalvik cache
8. Reboot

How to repartition your device:
Because of partition size limitations you need to repartition your device to fit the rom together with gapps on the /system partition.
My example repit file (in the Downlodas section) will also enlarge the /data partition because the default size is to small for android 5+ if you want to install some apps.

Lanchon has made a tool which makes it possible to repartition your device in the recovery without loosing your data
https://github.com/Lanchon/REPIT

You need to have a working TWRP Recovery (CWM and Philz will not work)!
Make sure that you have at least 5GB free space on your internal sdcard0 before you start!
Make sure that your battery is charged and connect your device to the charger because repartitioning can take some time!
Installing the repit zip from the sdcard will fail the first time (because the sdcard is in use and can't unmounted) but the file gets copied to /tmp in this step.
After this select the repit zip to install from /tmp again and it should work

How to enable root:
1. Go to Settings-System-About phone and tip 7 times on Build number to enable the Developer options
2. Go to Settings-Developer options-Root access and set it to Apps and ADB
Don't install supersu (it will give you a boot loop!)

Thanks a lot for the Rom @bauner
Clean flashed it on my GT-N7000 now and so far couldn't find any bugs that aren't known yet :)
Since it's my 2nd Phone I can't test anything RIL related but I'll try to check for any other bugs.
Do you know if we'll ever be able to install Magisk to our Note / What's the reason that we can't install it? I've read something about our Devices Ramdisk being different.

Oh my!!! @bauner you're an absolute legend! Can't thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to try out the latest and greatest version of Android on our beloved Galaxy note!
I'll give it a try in a few days. I'm so excited. Thanks so much.
Cheers ?

whew my eyes...
btw first time trying f2fs installation on n7000, and it booted (unexpected as I see most of n7000 rom thread wrote nothing on f2fs support) gonna try it out
phone seems couldn't power on while charging with this kernel. Nice charging screen tho, love it
Thanks Bauner :D

EDIT: It seems won't boot (stuck at the charging screen) only if the battery is too low.
EDIT 2 : I don't know whether this is because of f2fs or what, I can feel that it performs much better than nougat (i mean on first boot of both rom)

The youtube video problem is known
The rom is a android go build which does not support split screen
Can you reproduce the signal loss or will it happen randomly?
Which camera setting will not work for you?

•Split screen

Split screen works perfectly, but to use split scrren, you need to set the low ram flag in build.prop to false

*You will notice a slight change in ui such as recents and screen off animation

Welp I also face this problem since months ago (during last year, running rros nougat)... Tried several time of clean install of nougat but didn't help, even with a different sim. Hopefully as for now the issue has not come back again for me on los15.
I tot I'm the only one facing this issue ._. as I'm expecting this is hardware related problem. I'm highly confident this is not software related. My sis and my mom they both using n7000 as daily driver with rros nougat running since clean install during earlier last year, and they didn't hv this/any problem until now. (My mom make many phone calls everyday. ) Guess should be due to the worsening condition of the modem chip, maybe is because of the heat released from CPU is too much?

Seems like it was unable to boot sometimes, when the phone is charging, even when it already charged full. Best to remove charger and boot. Else sometimes it will stuck at charging screen, then will need to reboot by long pressing the power button.
Sometimes shutdown or reboot, it will like stuck for a moment before reset.(should be kernel related?) Like if in TWRP, if press reboot, it will stuck there for around 5 seconds or more, in my case 15 seconds longest, before it really reset.
There's no thermal sensors detected. Can't see the temperature of system.
Until today still smooth like hell. No idea why haha I'm using lowram flag = false.
Surprisingly there aren't any MTP Host related FC Dialog anymore 0.0 I will try out MTP soon.
Overall, what a legend! Thanks OP! It seems like it is a joke to tell people that note 1 is running Oreo :laugh:
But not. :cool:

With the default /system partition size you will not have enough free space to install nano gapps.

To fit bigger gapps as pico with lineage 15.1 you need to repartition the /system partition too.

Thank you for this.

Anyways, my internal storage shows as corrupted in 8.1.0. Not able to access it. Did I miss something?


Apart from this, everything is working great! Thank you once again for keeping this phone alive @bauner. :)
