Hi,

first of all, many thanks for the possibility to install a current operating system on my old phone. I tryed some other ROMs (without gapps) and alwas had the same problem: GPS does not work. I installed this ROM with gapps, and GPS worked. But the phone runs very slow, and I don't want the google tracking. Without gapps, however, GPS does not work. I have now installed microG in the same way as I installed gapp (with twrp, first install rom, then microg) following these instructions: https://old.reddit.com/r/MicroG/wiki/index
Everything runs good - except GPS.

What could I do?

Excuse me please if that is not the adequate thread to ask, since I suspect this is a general problem not related to this rom. Anyway I would be very happy if someone could give a hint...

Yes it is hard to get sattelite geolocation with this device. I just went outdoors and needed more than 5 minutes for a first fix.
For indoor location I installed minmicrog minimal and mozilla backend. It works after giving location permissions.

Hi Kurtn, thank you for your reply. I have tried outdoors and after about 10 minutes I got a location in Osmand~. But Indoors, no way.
I have 6 different location modules installed with microG: Apple WiFi; Deja Vu; GSM, Mozilla Location Service, WiFi Location service and Nominatim. With Gapps was very quick :-(

Hello everyone. I just noticed this interesting ROM for our S3. I have LOS 16 on my S3 and I wanted to upgrade to 18.1.
1. I have a dual band network. Will I be able to connect to the 2.4 GHz band? Or are there any issues with it?
2. How bad are the random reboots? Are they often? Also what is the cause for them @html6405 (please explain in details as for a dev).
Thanks in advance :)

Hi, sorry if I am OT but before installing this ROM and losing some things that I cannot save, I wanted to ask you if it was possible to update without formatting the latest official LineageOS for I9300 (Android 7.1.2) to the WPA3 protocol since with iOS 15.x Hotspot I can no longer connect to wifi. Thank you very much!

I would not dare upgrading with unsaved data in my phone. At least copy them to a portable SD.

@danielcuervog, I usually format all the partitions before flashing any custom ROM. If you don't mind losing your internal storage data, I would recommend you to try this method. And pls post the result...

Or try installing an older version of this ROM and pls see if the problem persists...

If you really have an i9300 (not a different S3 model), the vendor partition (original HIDDEN) should
have the same size.
If you're having a different S3 model, it could be that you have to expand the partition before.

I tried, but didn't work.

And if I flash the original pit?

Ok, this should solve the issue.

1635807794980.jpeg


It was indeed that. I had to flash a stock rom with the pit file, then flash the recovery and custom rom, and it worked. Well, it's time to test! And thanks.

@danielcuervog, I suppose you did what was mentioned here?


Yes! When I had other previous roms, I used that method for earn a little of space on internal storage.

Dunno if its the ROM or the problem with my phone (as it hit the ground many times), when compared to stock ROM or any other custom ROM, I feel like I get less Wi-Fi signal, especially upstairs where I get only 0-1 bars of signal strength.
Can you please clarify?

    Yes it is!

    My new challenge is finding a way to easily enable and disable root - Lineage doesn't seem to allow this anymore

    https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases

    https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-install-magisk/ On an i9300 you should be able to install Magisk by flashing the .zip file via TWRP. Scroll down to the section beginning with "Keep in mind it’s possible to patch the boot image on the fly on legacy devices having boot ramdisk through a custom recovery like TWRP" and follow the instructions there. I've used this method successfully on a number of devices.

    With Magisk installed you can grant root permission to and revoke it from any app. Magisk can also 'hide' itself so that the device still passes SafetyNet testing.

    Magisk does it.

    Unfortunately, it is not working yet. I have tested the following router settings:

    - WPA disabled: Works.
    - WPA + WPA2: Works.
    - WPA2 + WPA3: Refuses connection.

    To catch up on this: I have just installed your newest build (09.11.2021), and it now connects properly to my Wi-Fi even though my router is set to WPA2 + WPA3 (including dual-band 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz). Nice!

    Hi,

    here you can find my version of LineageOS 18.1 for our Samsung Galaxy S3 (I9300).
    At first I want to thank @rINanDO, @ChronoMonochrome for all your work.
    This Rom is based on https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/rom-unofficial-11-0-0-lineageos-18-0-alpha-20-10-2020.4179303/ .

    This is a early beta build, so don't install it if you want a stable rom and don't report my already listed bugs!


    Here you can see how far everything is working for now.

    • Boot
    • Audio
    • Bluetooth
    • Graphics
    • Cameras
    • Sensors
    • Wifi
    • GPS
    • USB
    • Video playback (HW/SW)
    • Tethering via USB
    • RIL
    • OTA-Updates
    • GSI flash
    • NFC
    • much more...
    • Tethering via WIFI and Bluetooth
    • BT headset call
    • Screen Cast, Chromecast did work, Samsung TV not
    • Random reboots
    • SD-Card can't be formatted as a storage expansion, your device will crash
    • Maybe more
    You could use a gps.conf from https://app.box.com/s/w57s1v1n3hie7l5lk28i for your location and replace /vendor/etc/gps.conf.
    Or you try GPS Server Optimizer app for a faster 3D fix.
    For both methods you need root rights.
    If you are going to use Gapps,
    here you can download them:
    Open Gapps
    For the others, you can use microG in future.

    Do you like my work?
    Than you can simply hit the thanks button and consider to spend me a coffee or a beer,
    I'm doing this in my free time and it also costs a lot of money to buy hardware.

    donate

    Great news, after a long time creating hack's to boot up the modem on the exynos4 LTE devices (also the i9305),
    I've finally managed to get the RIL working, this mean's that I will create an own I9305 build soon.
