IMPORTANT INFORMATION


Hi all,


This is an unofficial Android 11 build for the Galaxy S3 (i9300).


The most of the ROM features are working, but the overall state might be not stable or not suitable for a daily use. This is an alpha quality build. Don't install this ROM as your daily driver.

This work is heavily based on works of forkbomb444 (thanks for device tree, kernel and device patches for LOS 14.1), rINanDO (thanks for device tree, kernel and device patches for LOS 17.1).
A huge credit goes to A$teroid, this wouldn't have been possible without his help.

What is working:
  • Boots
  • Audio (playback && recording)
  • Bluetooth
  • Graphics
  • Camera
  • Sensors
  • RIL (SMS, mobile data, calls) - untested, probably should work
  • Wifi
  • USB
  • Video playback (HW/SW)

What is not working:

  • GPS
  • Wifi hotspot
  • maybe yet something

Reporting bugs

When reporting reboots, please produce log below as follows
(using adb or terminal)
Code:
su
cat /proc/last_kmsg > /sdcard/last_kmsg.txt
and attach in this thread.

If reporting another issues
Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
A rough timestamp of when the issue occurred is also useful.

to quickly & easily capture logcat (Main log), Kernel log (dmesg) & Last Kernel log (last_kmsg which is important in case of unwanted reboot) without using a computer + adb or use a Terminal emulator on the phone:
  1. Root the phone
  2. Developer Options > Store logger data persistently on device > select All. More info about it here on developer.android.com
  3. Install the free SysLog. (screenshot)

    View attachment 4644180
  4. Reboot the phone & reproduce the problem(s).
  5. Open Syslog & select logcat, dmesg & last_kmsg. Add some significant keywords in the bottom including in Notes describing the bug & hit Take log.
  6. The individual logs + a .zip of all of them will be saved in /sdcard/Syslog. You must rename them .txt to be able to attach them to an XDA post like logcat.log > logcat_log.txt for example. Or you can choose Share which will .zip them & then you can attach to a post or upload somewhere & link to in your post if the .zip is too big for XDA's attachment service (20 MB max).
Done! And make the dev happy. :cool:
***

Bug Reports & Logs?
If the phone is not rooted you can grant this permission to enable Syslog using ADB (15 seconds ADB Installer) & a computer:
  • adb shell pm grant com.tortel.syslog android.permission.READ_LOGS
You can also install an app like MatLog to analyse the logcat, filter it, search in it, export files etc but Syslog is fast & easy. If not rooted grant permission for MatLog:
  • adb shell pm grant com.pluscubed.matlog android.permission.READ_LOGS
***

Just wanna drop in to appreciate the work still going on in the S3.

Used to use the S3 till it randomly died one day. Was also a threat maintainer for one of the custom roms for the S3.

Great to see this device being alive 8 years down. Great work!

I can't turn off button illumination and it says performance is impacted because serial console is enabled which, I assume, is your doing but still the battery is consumed rapidly. These are the problems I have seen so far, however this rom is getting really better.

Edit: In Whatsapp I can see the caller's and my own camera but my camera feed is not sent across to the caller. This may be a Whatsapp related problem I don't know. And thanks for your hard work on this rom.

At the moment there are no Android 11 gapps for arm phones, only for arm64 phones

Really looking forward to giving this rom a try, does anyone know if it has root? Or how to get root?

Thanks for all the hard work! It is heavily appreciated.

Error while flashing ROM

I encounterd Error: 1, unknown command [log] error.
I could fix it by removing the line:
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "m0" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "m0" ||
getprop("ro.product.device") == "i9300" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "i9300" ||
getprop("ro.product.device") == "GT-I9300" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "GT-I9300" || abort("E3004: This package is for device: m0,i9300,GT-I9300; this device is " + getprop("ro.product.device") + "."););

in : lineage-18.0-20201020-UNOFFICIAL-i9300.zip\META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script

could you remove the line by default so other users do not run into that problem?

Furthmore i could not flash any Rom with twrp 3.4.0, causing a "Failed to map file" error. Using twrp 3.0.2 fixed that.

Anyway thank you very much for this rom :)

    I tested the latest version of these rom “lineage-18.1-20210624
    I know it isn't final yet, but I would like to participate and display the problems you encountered. So we don’t find them in the version you participate here
    1- I can’t restart or power off the phone ( you must remove battery and power on the phone )
    2- charging battery light option active but not working.
    3- black screen when incoming calls ( Sometimes )
    4- USB Transfer file not working ( In windows not workning & Linux sometimes)
    5- videos in facebook not work smoothly ( I don’t know from rom or FB. App)
    6- rom sometimes froze and black screen then soft reboot automatic. (The Ram consumes 75% without any other apps )
    7- The battery consumes quickly
    8- I noticed in ( system Apps Info ) similar applications in the same name ( I don’t know its normal or not )
    9- multi-user not working fine , black screen when switch between users.

    I apologize for the bad language, and I hope my words reach to you
    Also apologized because I am a normal user and I am not a programmer

    MR @ChronoMonochrome
    You did a lot for this device and developed many versions, as many words are not enough to express thanks and appreciation for your great effort, and we hope that you will complete this great project so that it will be more stable and reliable, and it may be the last update of this device..
    thank you

    @rINanDO Connecting to a WPA3(-only) network does not seem to be working currently (tested with 20210608). A fix could be this commit.

    Hi everyone I have the samsung s3 currently running unoffical LOS 16 based on ChronoMonochrome rom.
    As I have a question about upgrading it from 16 to 18 without any side effects of losing everything as I use alot of the apps and I don't want to redownload everything and having to sign in all over again
    You always have to clean-flash to upgrade the LOS version, unfortunately. You'll need to use something like the Migrate tool to transfer your existing apps, contacts, sms messages, call logs, etc to the new version. This saves you a lot of work, but doesn't completely restore the original configuration. See the [APP][ROOT][5.0+][1st Nov 2020] Migrate - custom ROM migration tool thread for more information.
