FYI the LineageOS S5 klte family maintainer haggertk

FYI, Privacy Guard is deprecated in Lineage 17 (Android 10) and above and a "no go" for me!
The app option "start at boot" should be in the hand of the user, not only for battery reasons.
Just another example of Giigle's dictatorship!

Therefore, I appreciate Lineage 14.1 a lot :) as well as...

Bluetooth Issues & LineageOS Versions?

...With this 14 I have no problems with BT...Does the 18 take care of this issue?


Search that 18.1 thread or ask in it: [ROM][UNOFFICIAL][11] LineageOS 18.1 for Samsung Galaxy S5 (klte*)

My Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 17.1 klte build 2021-02-28 @ the present does not have any Bluetooth issue but that varies for some users as you can read in [OFFICIAL] LineageOS 17.1 for Galaxy S5 klte + Variants > Known Bugs chapter.

I suspect that it's related to the build date & hardware revision of the S5 itself but users never include enough data points to troubleshoot the issues.

According to DevCheck > System: Manufacturing date August 25, 2015 for my S5 G900M.

And that's with the most recent S5 Odin Flashable Modem & Bootloader for my device.

I was told it was due to Samsung not releasing drivers. In my case it may be due to the device (car BT) which was second generation BT from 2005 . Many individuals have the problem, but my problem only occurs with this sole device. 14.1 works flawlessly but the 15,16,17 that I have tried all drop signal continuously.

A REALLY bizzare problem just popped up. I'd transferred a coupla photos to my Win7 desktop via bluetooth and all was well.
Tried it later on and the phone complains that it can't transfer an unknown file type. Huh?!?
I can transfer any other file, I can transfer a photo from another S5, but I can't transfer from THIS phone to ANY PC, via bluetooth. Un-paired phone and re-paired, no joy. Restarted phone, no joy.
**************** UPdate ************
Now it seems that ANY file going OR coming into the phone is 'unknown send failed"!

I found this in FiestaLake AFH
It seems like it's too late but I will say about this now. Thx for sharing this first!
It's completely same with the official one from LineageOS team, unless they added unofficial patches on the top of it before.
I do not remember the exact security date but it should be still new!
I will try to update them by time to time when I have enough free time.

    FAQ/Frequent Statements
    Q0: When ${THING}?
    A0: No ETAs. Don't ask.
    Q1: You list my phone above but there isn't a build uploaded, why not?
    A1: Haven't gotten around to it yet.
    Q2: But when will you get to building it?
    A2: Damn it, see Q0/A0.
    Q3: How often will builds be produced?
    A3: Whenever I get to them and feel like uploading.
    Q4: But ${THING} isn't working for me. I cannot live without ${THING}. :crying:
    A4: Not surprising, lineage-14.1 is still young. Some features aren't ported and some may still be buggy. Maybe lineage-14.1 isn't ready for you yet. And don't cry.
    Q5: Xposed/Magisk?
    A5: Don't know. Maybe, maybe not. I'll ignore you if you complain about something and are using them. Don't even think of talking about it.
    Q6: Can I complain about something?
    A6: I'd prefer not, but be prepared for me to ignore you.
    Q7: Can I report a bug?
    A7: Absolutely. Please ensure that you are running stock ROM and kernel. No Xposed or other hacky crap. Create a logcat.
    Q8: When will you fix ${THING} that I just reported?
    A8: Damn it, see Q0/A0. And if your ${THING} isn't something that bothered me, it probably just got shuffled to the back of the line.
    Q9: Can I donate?
    A9: Code, yes. Money, no.
    Q11: My bluetooth seems to mostly work except it gets glitchy when I turn my screen off, put it in my pocket, walk away from it by more than a couple feet, etc. Why?
    A11: Your OUI isn't recognized by macloader. We're doing the right thing for cm-14.x+ and giving EVERYONE the correct BT and WIFI firmware/calibration data. Send me the first three octets of your WIFI MAC address as well as the output of the instructions in this post.
    Q12: Can I dirty flash from CM to LineageOS?
    A12: The official timeframe for dirty-flashing from CM to LineageOS is over.
    Q13: HALP, I restored a TWRP backup and now cannot get my radio to work.
    A13: First, don't panic. You have a full backup, it's just that something weird is happening on boot of the restore. We can get through this. Go ahead and restore that nice, clean backup again (Yes, restore it AGAIN!), but DO NOT REBOOT YET! Using the TWRP file manager, delete these two directories:
    • /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/
    • /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/shared_prefs/
    Now you may reboot your phone.

    LineageOS recommends Opengapps. I use Opengapps mini. If you are running lineage-14.1 then you want ARM 7.1.

    Doesn't Work:
    • CM ThemeEngine - Not ported to lineage-14.x
    • VoLTE - Didn't work on cm-13.0. Didn't work on cm-14.1. Don't expect great things, even devices from the same generation as ours that had VoLTE on M (e.g., bacon) don't have it on N.

    Where is this Lineage os ?

    It will be LineageOS as soon as we finish standing up a new Gerrit code review instance (should happen today) and merge rebranding patches. Currently it is a 100% bare fork -- CM source == LAOS source.

    I'd expect official builds are at least a week away. There are a lot of offers for server time and storage space coming in, but no one really wanted to do much thinking along those lines yesterday during the holiday and step 1 really is getting Gerrit running.

    Suffice to say, cyngn's actions over the weekend accelerated our timeline. We'd been planning to be cut over to new Gerrit by New Year's, but by deleting DNS entries and disabling SSH access to CM gerrit really has pulled the rug out from under us.

    Please bear with us. If anyone is looking for general OFFICIAL LineageOS information/messaging, stick to these locations -- we control them:
    Builds are being uploaded to the usual place, all with filenames containing the 20161027 date.

    Changes of note:
    - Kernel update to 3.4.12. Ozzy is grinding through, only about 100 releases left to go.
    - seccomp-bpf. Well, this isn't exactly new to my builds, the last one or two had it, but I went ahead and merged it.
    - Dirty COW fix. Yeah, all of you probably are running rooted, but we don't want some rogue app doing root-level stuff without you being prompted now, do we? This may have been in the last build, I cannot remember the time of day that I kicked it off...
    - Anything merged into the greater cm-14.0 tree.
    - Oh yeah, some camcorder thing. It appears to be working for me. It should work for you. Or it may completely blow up. It is still under active review. Beware, dragons.

    Yes, I know that work is being done on cm-14.1 (Android 7.1). Not every project is forked yet, I don't want to deal with a frankentree, and I'd just as soon let that settle down a bit (first devices successfully booted only just last night). So no, no cm-14.1 yet. And no, I don't know when.
    CM-14.1 builds are going up. I updated the first post, but if you don't feel like clicking back, they are here. klte is up already and kltevzw will be soon thereafter. The rest will come in due time. All will have the date of 20161029 in the filename.

    If you want to dirty-flash upgrade from cm-14.0, you MUST flash new Android 7.1 gapps immediately after flashing cm-14.1 before booting the ROM or fail city will result.

    For those asking what's different from the @javelinanddart build, pretty much just everything that's been committed in the last couple days to the greater CM tree. I did compile this using MALLOC_SVELTE which may help with our relatively low-memory device. If this looks good over the next couple days I'll merge it upstream.

    Oh yeah, I also picked this unmerged commit that will let you actually change the status bar battery representation.
