No, I use this now. Bugs in LOS 16 for Note 9, include broken signalbar and battery problem, scare me.

Even if you throw money at the devs, it seems very unlikely that a proper fix will be found for HWC. They have tried and failed so far.

The devs have also moved on from S9/N9 development it seems.

As Rainbow_Dash said, there will only be updates when there is a reason to update.

In any case, my offer is valid.
If someone can continue LOS 15.1 instead 16 (fix some bugs and include fresh Google security patches) - I willing pay for this too.

These gsi roms can cause all kinds of problems and you can solve only some if you figure out the proper base, vendor, etc. Hardly any of them would be a daily driver. Just imo.

Not entirely true, you can flash a generic version of OneUI, the Lineage builds are fine (im running one at the moment), and the AOSP ones are working just as well as the Lineage. Usually if you come from the suggested firmware/vendor then you shouldnt have a problem.

I tried for example yesterday the 9.0 Pixel Experience gsi. No suggested firmware, vendor etc(or are they listed on some place else?). It can't boot. Some people commented that an Oreo vendor is needed, but how can one know this and what's the logic behind this?

Would you share what treble roms have you tried which work good and with what pre-requisites?
Thanks!

Sure. A lot of the GSI's are based on 8.1 firmware thats why usually theyll suggest that, however ive had success with the generic OneUI copies from this link and also had success with the pixel experience, the lineage, the aosp and the generic android 9 builds

https://forum.xda-developers.com/pr...vice-development/pie-erfan-gsi-ports-t3906486

I think basically its best to flash a standard AOSP rom and then flash the GSI's over the top of those. Its been about a 50% success rate provided ive read and followed directions accurately. Best of luck!

It means that you should make sure that this specific version of baseband and firmware is installed on your device before you try to install LOS. You can check your currently installed version under Settings -> About phone -> Software.

I'm still on the original (heavily debloated) stock ROM because hardware compositor acceleration is currently disabled on LOS for the Note 9. So I don't think it is a good idea to use it as a daily driver.

Quick question before flashing

other phones.
But I need to know something for sure before I flash this since this is my daily driver and I need the full functionality of it.
So by default, this phone does not work properly on U.S Carriers and I need this to work on ATT/Cricket. I'm currently using the Detonator mod from other thread which gets me wifi calling, LTE, VoLTE, HD calling and so on. Just the features that the U.S variant has by default.
So my question is, will this have all of that seamlessly enabled? From my understanding, it's Samsungs stupid decision to disable such features on their international devices whereas any other phone maker wont have those restrictions.

Also sorry if this double posted. My internet is not the greatest.

    Note: This is not a ROM based on the ROM shipped with your device. Exynos variants such as International (F), International Dual(Hybrid)-SIM (F/DS), Korean (N) ONLY. In NO way it is compatible with Snapdragon variants including but not limited to American(U/U1/A/T/P/V), Chinese(0/8/6), Hong Kong(0), Japanese(SC-*), Canadian(W) variants.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1 (Oreo), 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. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    This it not a GSI. It is built on actual device trees

    What's not working?
    - Sometimes after setting the brightness to maximum, it doesn't want to lower its value and gets stuck. is fixed only by a reboot.
    - The signalbar always shows 0 bars,altho this has no impact or call quality or data.
    - HWC is currently disabled
    Obviously Samsung's own features such as Samsung Pay, KNOX, Theme Center, Game Launcher, etc. won't be ported to LineageOS. We may have our own implementation to similar functions, though.
    Iris sensor does not work because AOSP upstream does not support that yet.
    IMS services (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc). Samsung has their own proprietary implementation. It is not really possible to easily port that to LineageOS .

    What's working?
    Anything not specifically listed as not working

    Instructions:
    Make sure:TWRP has been installed and functional;
    you are on the CSA2 based vendor and fw
    Download the latest build (and optionally gapps).
    Reboot to recovery
    Wipe data and cache (required if you switch from other ROMs)
    Flash the latest build (and gapps)
    (optional) flash magisk for root
    Reboot and enjoy :highfive:

    Troubleshooting/FAQ:



    Q: I'm on a dualsim variant and (a) sim isn't detected.
    A: Try reinserting your sim and rebooting. This wierdly nuff only happens on some* dualsim variants and no one has sent me a logcat yet.

    Q: My mobile data (3G/4G) is not working/only 3g shows
    A: Go into mobile network settings and select/create an apn, also select 4G as the preferred network type.

    Q: How does this compare to GSIS?
    A: It's abit better but that's highly subjective. Both have their ups and downs

    Q: How good is the camera?
    A: Actually,(by my standards), pretty good. Almost comparable to stock. Ofc the aosp cam doesn't have the fancy filtering, features and stuff but by far not bad. Alot better than 8.1 roms anyway.

    Q: Safetynet doesn't pass?
    A: Yeah, i guess that's a thing. Go into magisk and download some module called props hide or something. Don't forget to run it from terminal. It should work from there

    Q: The rom isn't booting/camera doesn't work
    A: Flash/make sure you have the CSA2 vendor and fw, and try again. This has been tested. It's prolly something on ur end.

    Q: I have another bug; How can i tell it to you while slightly increasing my changes of it ever getting fixed.
    A: You can tell me what's going on either here or on telegram WITH A LOGCAT attached(required);if rom isn't booting at all attach /proc/last_kmsg.

    Q: I don't know what/how to logcat. Is it really necessary?
    A: Logcat or gtfo

    Q: How can i support you?
    A: Awwww thanks;On most of my posts on the left side there's a "donate to me" paypal button;. Send the seal some fish. Seriously. The seal realllyyyyy loves fish. You can do that,donations are more than welcome, or if you don't have any $ to spare you can also post here about how awesome i am (this surprisingly helps very much)
