Hi,

here you can find my version of LineageOS 18.1 for our Samsung Galaxy S3 (I9305).
At first I want to thank @rINanDO, @ChronoMonochrome for all your work.
This Rom is based on I9300 LOS 18.1 .

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

Attention:
I would recommend to set the device to 3G, at the moment, you have to reset the APN settings after every boot to enable mobile data, I'm working on this.


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, 3G seem's to work fine, LTE causes sometimes troubles, I would recommend to set it to 3G.
  • OTA-Updates
  • GSI flash
  • NFC
  • BT headset call
  • much more...
  • Tethering via WIFI and Bluetooth
  • 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

If you are going to use Gapps,
here you can download them:
Open Gapps
For the others, you can use microG.

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.

First test build is online, have fun :).
Thank you!

Clean-installed lineage-18.1-20211008-HTML6405-i9305 and it's looking really good.

I've installed LOS and the same apps as when trying out the 19300 build. No Gapps or Magisk.

All of the things I observed as not working with the i9300 build on this device are now working:
  • Hardware buttons are now working
  • Home button now wakes device
  • Wifi connects automatically to dual-band network and seems stable
  • GPS is working. I haven't tested thoroughly, but it does see satellites, which it couldn't before
  • Camera works and photos are right-side up
  • Screen rotation is working correctly (once I turned on 270 degrees in rotation settings - other angles were already on).
  • Audio volume is still low on internal speakers, but fine on Bluetooth.
I haven't yet tested telephony (which didn't work on the i9300 build). Going to leave the device on for a while to see if it's stable.

Update: saw a random reboot after ~4 hours during which the device was continuously playing music via a Bluetooth speaker.

Thanks for testing, but you can't compare these two builds because of different hardware ;).
If you're facing a random reboot, it would be great to create a last_kmsg file and send it to me,
otherwise I can't debug anything.
Audio volume is still low on internal speakers, but fine on Bluetooth.
You could change the Speaker Boost Volume level from 6 to 7 in the /vendor/etc/sound/i9305 file,
this will increase the audio volume.
I will include this in the next build.

Yes, I wasn't intending to suggest that they are directly comparable - just confirming that everything that's supposed to be working is working. ;)

Telephony is working, I can now confirm. The SIM was visible but not active on reboot after inserting the SIM, and after a second reboot it became active.

If you're facing a random reboot, it would be great to create a last_kmsg file and send it to me,
otherwise I can't debug anything.
Good - I was going to ask just what logs you'd like me to collect re the reboots. I'll grab last_kmsg next time it random reboots.

There've been two random reboots since install, both while it'd been playing music over bluetooth continuously. The first was after ~4 hours and the second ~2 hours. I will just leave the device idle now and see if it happens when it's in deep sleep. There are no tombstone files, by the way.

You could change the Speaker Boost Volume level from 6 to 7 in the /vendor/etc/sound/i9305 file,
this will increase the audio volume.
I will include this in the next build.
Thanks! That does help (after a reboot). Still not loud, but it is more audible.

@html6405 - I have a logcat and last_kmsg from a strange half-hung event this morning. Should I upload here, or would you prefer a PM?

The device had stayed up without a random reboot overnight (and ~75% deep sleep). I connected the Bluetooth speaker and started the VLC media player. For a while, all seemed well. Then I pressed Home to send the player to the background, and instead, bootanimation started. Very briefly - didn't complete half a loop - then the screen went blank, hardware buttons were lit, and no response to buttons or quick press of power button.

adb could still connect to it, so I grabbed the logcat and last_kmsg before trying anything else. htop worked, but none of the running processes seemed to be using an unusual amount of memory or processor, so I didn't try killing any.

I had to force-restart (Power and Volume Down) to get it to respond.

Now it tells me there are new updates. Is that expected?

@html6405 - the 9 October OTA update dowloaded and installed via TWRP, and the system booted OK. I connected the bluetooth speaker and started playing music via VLC media player. The system rebooted almost immediately. The attached zipfile contains last_kmsg (called last_kmsg-2) taken after that reboot, plus the last_kmsg and logcat from the 8 October build, mentioned in my previous post.

Sure, I've set the audio volume to the maximum.

Ok, this was a modem crash, thanks for your log, I will take a deeper look into it.
I'm not sure why the crash happened.
@html6405 - the device got another OTA update today. Thank you - and I like the fact that they install automatically via TWRP!

It has had quite a few random reboots now, and ALL have been while it's playing music files continuously. It does this with LOS's music player and with the VLC app, and it doesn't matter whether the audio files are local or on a network fileserver, or whether the output is bluetooth speaker, wired headset, device speakers, or muted. After a variable length of time playing - usually 15-30 minutes - the device will suddenly reboot.

But it doesn't seem to do it when playing video continuously. I haven't tested this thoroughly, but yesterday VLC played video files from a network fileserver for over four hours without any reboot. I'll try it again today to see if that's consistent.

Do you need any more last_kmsg files - or only if it reboots under different conditions?
 
I'm testing this ROM right now, unfortunately I lost my SIM card day ago so can't say anything about mobile data etc. In 2 hours of listening music on youtube, using social media apps and browsing web there wasn't any reboot. I didnt encounter any major bugs, one thing that is happening to me is when i try to send photo (directly from camera, not gallery) in messenger app, when i click to send photo it is jest restarting messenger application, I will test how it is with other apps and edit this post. In overall this ROM is working really nice. Thank you for working on this ROM. Maybe it is now not the smoothest or fastest working ROM but it is usable and gave me "fresh feeling" of this old phone

    for the GSI there is no i9305 images
    Where to find em,or they are avaiable at treble info?
    The GSI from the linked thread and all coming GSI's should fit for all exynos4 devices.
    But I had no time to test it on the I9305, there will come updated versions soon.
