No solution, but a workaround: go to google.com navigate to your account settings and download contacts as vcf file
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.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...
I would not dare upgrading with unsaved data in my phone. At least copy them to a portable SD.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!
If you really have an i9300 (not a different S3 model), the vendor partition (original HIDDEN) should
@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...
Thanks @html6405. I tried it just to see what would happen. I'm not depending on the device as a daily drive, so if it had not worked at all it wouldn't have mattered. I am surprised at what does work, and not at all surprised by the bits that don't.Hi,
thx for your testing's, but I wan't to mention that this build is not meant to be installed on an i9305.
There are some hardware specific differences, this is why GPS, RIL couldn't work on this device.
The screen rotation is normal on my i9300, so I'm not sure if this is also a hardware specific aspect.
But I'm working on the LTE devices, it's not really easy to fix the RIL on Android 11, but I've already made some progress and hope to fix it completely soon.
Than I could publish an own build for the i9305.
