hltetmo: https://crdroid.net/hltetmo


Installation Instructions: (copied from LineageOS)

Compatibility Notes: (copied from LineageOS)
  • External SD cards don't support POSIX (ext*, f2fs) or NTFS filesystems anymore. If this affects you then just bite the bullet, copy any data off you really want to save, and reformat as exfat.
  • The latest TWRP does work, but if someone has issues then perhaps try using the actual supported recovery.
  • If you are encrypted, even with insecure boot, you absolutely must format userdata on upgrade, as noted in upgrade instructions in wiki.
    • If you are not encrypted then disable lockscreen before upgrading and it *should* work without wiping userdata.
    • If you didn't disable lockscreen before upgrading then delete the lockscreen files and it *should* work. Use the power of search, I'm not going to help out with this one -- it's an unsupported path.
    • If you get terribly stuck then wipe userdata as our official upgrade guide notes.

Known issues:
* Ghosting/flickering item on sliding animation (Blur Issue)
Fix: Disable Blur from Settings->Display


EOL Announcement:

I've recently switched to Oneplus 8 Pro but Note 3 will still be on my hand for couple months. So I will continue to update the ROM till end of 2021 (DEC-2021).

Good luck to everyone. It's been a fun ride.

Nice to see a developer revisit this dinosaur of a device and keep it supported. I have been running LOS since android 10 as I found advanced features of other roms are too intensive for this phone now. Will be interesting to try out this rom! First time I've been excited to flash a rom in ages. I don't know how I'm still daily driving this phone :D

Issues I am facing on this ROM:
- Settings interface seems to freeze whenever I visit an app info.
- Unable to grant access privileges to app (e.g. Giving file access permission to browser, which just doesn't respond to my touches )

It seems that smart pixels causes some of the settings' interfaces not to work properly.
- 5ghz band not working :( ( the connection status remains 'Saved' if you are trying to connect to a 5ghz wireless band)
- More to be discovered

5ghz works fine on wifi and hotspot

    Hi!
    I'm already maintaining other crDroid ports, as @gj86 is stopping his work at hlte, I have spoken to him to take over maintainance of hlte devices and we have agreed to do so.

    So... for now on... I'll be taking care of hlte devices. There is however a problem with all this, the thing is that as I maintain some other devices I want to have a clean tree for all of them, so I'll be starting with a pure lineage tree and then as we Identify the problems, I'll try to port from @gj86's tree.

    I'll be needing your help with two things then:
    1- I only have the N9005, this is hlte, I'll need tests for hltechn, hltekor and hltetmo.
    2- I'll need you to identify things that break while I go back to a standard crDroid base with Lineage hlte based devices.

    Hope this way we can maintain the Note 3 in shape in the future.

    We still have to deal how we do all this movement here at xda (will we continue to use this thread or start a new one?) and at crDroid, should I publish directly at crDroid or publish here so that you guys can test it before it get's to everybody?

    I'd appreciate comments on all this.

    Regards!

    Thank you for your hard work. I am also trying to extend the life of my rom as much as I can while I have an OnePlus 6t for 2 years already :).
    Btw the Gallery on crDroid is horrible. In RTL it show all picture as black :-( (this renders the camera previews impossible as it uses only the stock gallery). The same for the "files" app (which is needed to select audio and such for other apps). Does the crDroid team hate RTL or what hahahaha, no offence.
