increase your dpi, probably around 390-420. it's under developer options
this happens as the ui adjusts dynamically for the media controls, linage can't do anything about it as it's an android 11 thing
Thank you! Set 390 dpi and now i have 6 icons. Any way 17.1 is better in this case, because more icons and the player does not interfere

This is excellent work. There are a couple of is one things different on 18.1 compared to 17.1 though.

There seems to be no way for me to activate magnification from accessibility. There was a triple tap option in 17.1, but 18.1 only has the shortcut option which does not show up like it does on a note 20. How can we get magnification working on the Note 3 with LineageOS 18.1?

Also, how do we open the recently opened apps window? on 17.1 we pressed and held the hamburger button on the bottom left, but that does not work for 18.1. Opening recently used apps window started working for me after a couple of reboots. GPS took one reboot to get working.

Thanks for your great work.

LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

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

Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

Device source code:
Kernel source code:

Build Compatibility:
The noted models are the only ones supported. If you have a model that isn't listed and ask politely then I might work to add compatibility.
BuildModel
hlteSM-N9005, SM-N900P
hltechnSM-N9008V
hltekorSM-N900K, SM-N900L, SM-N900S
hltetmoSM-N900R4, SM-N900T, SM-N900V, SM-N900W8

Downloads:
Installation Instructions:
Reporting Bugs:
Compatibility Notes:
  • 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.
Donations:
  • I absolutely don't personally accept them. If you really feel that this work deserves it, then find a local food bank or animal shelter/rescue and throw some money their way. You can also throw some the way of LineageOS, but we're actually doing pretty well right now.
I'm currently facing an issue with the GPS of the device (Not able to use Google Maps, Whatsapp Location feature or any other tasks related to GPS) what should I do??

This rom is excellent.

However, I noticed that the "Menu Button" options (Short press or Long press) under System > Buttons are not working.

Has anyone encountered the same issue and whether there is a resolution to fix it?

My device is HLTE, baseband is N9005ZSUGPJ2 and running on latest Lineage OS build.

Thanks in advance.

Hi. I am stunned to learn that SM-N9005 is supported by Lineage OS 18.1. I have not touched my N9005 for years and was thinking of getting rid of it. I have not tinkered with custom OSes in recent years, but if Lineage OS 18.1 works on it, then it may be worth reviving.

Now, probably the answer is no, but this ROM does not support S-Pen... correct? I would just like to draw some sketches on this device.

If the answer is indeed no, could someone recommend a ROM that supports S-Pen?

Thanks!

Well, the pen itself works but the main concern is samsung apps related to spen cannot be installed on lineage.
any third party apps should work, though.

    Hi, today I flashed the latest nightly build of this great ROM on my note 3 (SM-N900P), and everything seems to work amazing, except, when I try to download any app from the Play Store it says that I need to free up space on my storage, but my storage is 85% empty which means there is 27gb free space.

    I used nano opengapps. Did anyone have this problem? I need your help as I can't download any apps on my phone using the play store.

    EDIT: Also the lineage os camera app and music app are not working.

    EDIT 2: Clean Installed the new lineage-18.1-20210717 with latest opengapps and everything worked perfectly.

    Thanks for the quick response. Strange bug, it was crashing the UI as I mentioned even after installing the latest nightly, but once I reordered the buttons the bug disappeared. This may be useful to someone at some point.

    Thanks for the heads up on the OBB problem. It seems it this security feature that has been causing me my headaches with the few applications that aren't able to install.
    I have installed the newly released openGapps and my obb problems have gone away. Seems that mindthegapps didn't get the android 11 security right.

    On the other issue as mentioned by others here it seems to be a regression of the no-security used bug. For me a decent workaround is just using swipe to unlock.

    Something has changed for the worse in a recent update of this rom. Phone now heats up even during light use and battery life has become terrible. Stats show Android System using 43% of battery. Happening on two different phones running 18.1. Just typing this has caused a 3% reduction. Has anyone else noticed this change in heat and battery life?

    Interesting you say that as i had some crackling on the old baseband i was running although i've never really looked into it...

    I've just tested on baseband: N9005XXUGBOJ1 with no issues to report :)
    Well, thanks!
    That's great sharing this with us, very weird of baseband to cause that sound crackling. I'm going to upgrade my baseband to see if it is going to solve this bug.
    EDIT: Flashed Nordic Countries baseband solved the issue! Thanks man!
    I'm currently using RL1 bootloader (from latest EGY firmware) and QB1 baseband (from latest Nordic Countries firmware).
    They're the recommended ones from baseband and bootloader topic on general forum because they are the most
    updated ones till now. (FOR "N9005" MODEL ONLY, ALSO KNOWN AS "hlte")

    PS: for anyone who want to flash the bootloader and baseband I mentioned above, I've uploaded them again on the
    general forum thread for bootloader and baseband discussion in a reply, as all links in the post are dead.
    (FOR "N9005" MODEL ONLY, ALSO KNOWN AS "hlte")
    You can find them here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...g-firmware-for-sm-n9005.3582504/post-85128029

    Anyone else facing when there's music playing and a notification sound comes, comes some noise from the speaker?

    installed and have to say WOW this rom seems not only stable but smoother than los 17.1 for me everything works well my only complaint is for spen still not blocking touch inputs when use and have less priority than finger touch, but aside that I think Is perfect for daily use.
    device n900w8, install with twrp, los 18.1 mindthegapps and magisk

    Does QC working on hlte?
    in short: yes

    in long: all aosp-based roms can charge up to 1800mA max (compared to 1200mA on stock iirc). you can check the input current using battery monitoring apps like amplify or batteryguru
    if it doesn't go 1800 max, check your wall adapter(charger) if it's capable of at least 5V-2A output and/or your cable/charging port if it's damaged or not(or in the case of the cable, if it can deliver that amount of current or not)

    p.s. i've also read your reply on the abandoned havoc thread so i decided to explain it here instead
