Just tried the rom on my FN version. I flashed the rom, and after that i flashed bulgaricius's kernel for FN.
It took about 5 minutes to boot, and right after the boot the default language is Russian, and immedietly there were errors saying com.sec.phone... has stopped working,after i close that error, same error pops up right after one second, so i had to freeze that service in order to use the phone properly.
Cellular Data is not working,at least not for me
Wi-fi is working great, it even remembers the password that i entered, even after reboot.
Now i am no expert, but i mentioned that the default language was Russian, so that means that the ported firmware is Russian? and somewhere in J5 2016 Nougat thread someone mentioned that Russian firmware is super buggy and that person also stated that he kept seeing processes stopped errors n Russian firmware so can this be related?
Anyway, beside that ROM is... i have no words, it is so much beter than either LL or MM.
Super but really super fast,perfomance is great, and it also looks so nice.
I had to go back to MM because i need to make some calls at morning at work, but i have to tell you coming back to MM from this ROM feels like dying xD
Anyyway thank you guys for this brilliant rom.
:good::good::good::good:

HEY, Wait, for your FN u have to flash the specific kernel in Leviathan post... Check this out.

In my J500M cellular data works good, the only two bugs is, wifi not saving passwords and bluetooth... (wifi is fixed in source, waiting new version of kernel...)

"com.android.phone has stopped."
can't make phone calls. - no network no IMEI.
no IMEI after restoring NFS folder from working slim 7.1.1
--
no phone calls after flashing Leviathan. https://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/?id=20065#downloads
--
battery no longer charges from 0 to 100 in 2 hours like in stock 5.1.1 or 6.0 or Slim 7.1.1
--
I also had no calls & no IMEI on Lineage 14.1 / 7.1.2. Please point me to the fix if this is common for J500f on 7.1.2 ROMs.
