LineageOS 17.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device. This is a port by me for the Samsung Galaxy J7 2015 and is based on the great work of @danwood76 and @Stricted.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS GitHub repository. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit the project's Gerrit page. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Code:
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* 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.

There was a time that i thought Nougat and Oreo roms was the end of the line for J7 15, and then we had the really nice surprise of having Los pie, and now Android 10!
Thanks for your efforts Dario! :D

I tried Los17, really good but i returned to los16

-no way to disable dark mode when battery saver is on.
-no grid size option in home settings (default 5x5, i want 4x5)
@danwood76 just sent me a picture of a theming menu in the settings. You just have to dig deep enough by yourself. And I think the dark mode on battery saving mode makes clearly sense on AMOLED screens ;)

    LineageOS 17.1 (official) is out for J7 2015

    Download: https://download.lineageos.org/j7elte

    Don't upgrade by a dirty flash without flashing this zip to change build fingerprints before (otherwise you will face a bootloop). Thanks to danwood76 for that. If you flash the official build cleanly you don't need the migration zip.

    Migration zip: https://mega.nz/file/jIxjzKRK#qO68cJ_CTGFLBIkRBQZSsvHWIVk8vzd4etQKt80xsUk

    NOTE: You can't upgrade from the built in OTA updater if you are on an unofficial build. You need to flash a build from https://download.lineageos.org/j7elte first.

    Google Drive servers only allow a limited amount of people to download a file. I might switch to MEGA soon. I also have found a fix for video camera which will be included in the next update.
