Hi,

here you can find my version for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on LineageOS 19.1.
At first I want to thank @rINanDO, @ChronoMonochrome for all your work which was reused here and helped a lot.

  • Boot
  • Audio
  • Bluetooth
  • Graphics
  • Cameras
  • GPS
  • Wifi
  • USB
  • Video playback (HW/SW)
  • OTA Updates
  • Tethering via USB, WIFI and Bluetooth
  • Sensors
  • RIL
  • NFC
  • Maybe random reboots
  • SD card can't be formated as internal memory, will cause a bootloop
  • Maybe more
I would recommend to use microG instead of gapps,
here you can find the installation instructions:
  1. Download Magisk 24.1 and flash it via TWRP (yes, flash the APK file), reboot
  2. Open Magisk and update the App (and do a reboot if it's asking)
  3. Enable Zygisk in Magisk
  4. Download and install microG installer in the Magisk manager, reboot
  5. Download and install safetynet-fix in the Magisk manager, reboot
  6. Check with a safetynet checker app and you should pass :)

Wanna improve your sound configs, control your charging current and more?
Now you can use my app to access all boeffla configurations, there will follow more functions.

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.

Originally posted in [ROM][UNOFFICIAL][11.0][N7100][Samsung Galaxy Note 2][LineageOS 18.1][ALPHA][TREBLELIZED]:

I just flashed the newly Android 12 LineageOS 19 build this morning.

It's currently a bit early to share my experience yet since I need some more time, but I already like to share my first impression.

First of all, I was surprised that I could just do a dirty flash over your current 18.1 dec build without any problems.
I did not perform a clean flash because I couldn't backup my Session messages, normally I always perform clean flashes.
I used TWPR 3.5.2 custom recovery to flash this ROM and only wiped Cache and Dalvik Cache/ART partition.
Everything went smooth. It didn't take too long for the first boot either.
Right after the first boot, just when it was booted, the phone rebooted.
After this reboot, I didn't encounter any random reboots yet.
Everything seems working smooth and snappy at the moment.
I can confirm that Magisk 23 is still working on this ROM. You just need to re-flash it after the first boot.
The only annoying thing I discovered is a blinking LED issue and the battery that last less longer, but that's maybe linked to the blinking LED issue.

Something I immediately noticed is that my notification LED is actually red now while charging and green when it hits 100%.
In previous 18.1 build, the LED always got a weird yellowish colour while charging.
Another thing that caught my eye was "Google Play System update" in settings.
I don't understands why it's there since it's supposed to be a degoogled ROM.
Google Play System updates is a part of the Google Play Services ecosystem.
I didn't install any GAPPS and this ROM didn't came with GAPPS pre installed.


- It (re)boots correctly
- Able to receive and sending sms messages and phone calls (didn't try SIM unlock yet. I used the workaround that is mentioned in the main post)
- Camera's
- Wi-Fi (both, 2.4 GHz and 5GHz)
- Video's (YouTube in browser)
- Sensors, except compass (phone rotates correctly)
- Charge correctly to 100%
- S-pen (just as a regular styles, no button functionality)

- An annoying blinking LED issue.
I never experience this before on any ROM.
Can be a coincidence, but after the battery drops below 75%, the notification LED is constantly blinking red, even when the screen is on.
I already tried to literary turn off all notifications options. I even disabled blinking LED option, but it still keeps blinking, even after a reboot. It only disappears after fully charging the phone but will come back in time.
I didn't find a way to fix this.


- Android 12 theme engine seems to be broken.
Some things like buttons (like emergency call button on lockscreen), text (search apps in launcher) and backgrounds in notifications icons in notification panel are still LineageOS teal.
Switching a wallpaper with different colours, but it doesn't change the theme colour of the device. Buttons, lockscreen clock etc. are still light blue. I try to add some screenshots to highlight this problem.
Also, the options to change the icon shape seems to be gone, even in developer settings.
Everything turned into circles after the update. Can't change it.

- USB (can't connect to pc (MTP))

- Extended screenshot beyond your screen

- There was a weird issue that my device is stuck at Samsung Galaxy II screen when turning on the device (not the LineageOS boot screen). I only had this once so can't describe how to reproduce it yet.
I just turned off my device in the power setting inside the ROM. The next time I turned on the device, it was stuck on that screen for 10 minutes. It was fixed by simply holding the power button for a while to turn off the phone.
After doing this, the phone rebooted normally again. I didn't got this issue again.



Besides the blinking LED issue, I had a very good first impression.
I really don't mind that some gimmick features are not working.
I only have this ROM for a few hours, so please keep in mind that I need more time for extensive and more in-depth testing.
Maybe there are some critical problems that I still need to discover.
I just wanted to give a quick update.

@html6405
If there are some specific things you like to try or things I need to keep an eye on, please let me know.

A big thank you to html6405 for this rom! Almost everything seems to work good.

The only thing i am missing is wake by proximity sensor. I use the app Waveup from F-droid for this. I know from trying other roms, that this is an unreliable feature. The sensor hardware is working, that much i know.

When using Lineageos 16, this is a built in feature in the rom, but it deactivates after every reboot. I have to manually turn it off and on every time to get it to work.

No big issue. Just glad to have latest Android on this device. I hope you get more appreciation from this than what you got from your Los 18.1 thread.

Let me know if you want feedback of any kind.

Happy new year!

It does work! I couldn't resist trying the future LOS19.

The overall impression is quite good, as the system seems to be more stable than the previous LOS18.1 for this phone. Still, the development options screen hanged a couple of times. At some point the system crashed and kept rebooting into recovery - fixed by erasing data partition. GPS works, although not well enough. The compass doesn't work in GPStest, but works in Compass app from Fdroid. I tried web browsing and viewing HD videos with Brave browser - very smooth experience. In order to access files on the phone I set up default USB mode in developer settings to files.

Two preinstalled applications are unsafe, contain trackers: camera and via. These had to be removed. Open Camera from Fdroid is installed - it works. The system web browser is preconfigured to ring Google; one may want to review its settings.

Installed Insular app (a sandbox made of the work profile) from Fdroid. The work profile works, but looses its filesystem after disabling and enabling it again. To bring the filesystem back reboot is required.

Phone encryption doesn't work, sadly. This is the same as with many previous custom ROMs for this phone.

A strange horizontal bar is seen at the bottom of the screen (nav bar home button??). Disable "Navigation hint" to get rid of it.

All together, it's an excellent result for the first attempt on LOS19. Looking forward to further releases!

Happy New Year everyone! Thank you html6405 for such an exciting present!

GPS works remarkably well, better than in the previous ROM, but compass doesn't work. I tried web browsing and viewing HD videos with Brave browser - very smooth experience. In order to access files on the phone I set up default USB mode in developer settings to files.
This are really great news, could some one else confirm that GPS is working?
I cant test it by my own...
If it's working fine, I will add it to the working list.

GPS seems to work better with "Force full GNSS Measurements" and "Use GNSS APIs" disabled in GPSTest. I also disabled "Force full GNSS Measurements" in "Developer options". From inside a room it locks on 3-5 satellites, although sometimes after a delay.

With GNSS it finds also Russian and Chinese satellites, but uses only the US constellation.

GPS performance, of course, is not as impressive as in new Samsungs, which lock on several constellations at the same time.

----------------
Added later... Still, GPS is not working well enough in this first release. It finds satellites slower than my ancient HTC DHD (ace) running cm13. Then it locks and in a moment loses the lock. I'll look into this in more detail...

Great, hopefully some one else can confirm this :), you're the only person so far.

Yes indeed - working GPS very important, and needs to be confirmed by multiple sources.

But kudos to the developer for making progress on this.

hello, dear! tell me, what is the battery life? I use rr 5.8.5, the battery lasts for a day of average use. I tried to install lineage 16 - the battery was enough for several hours( now I would really like to switch to this rom, but everything depends on the battery life. thank you for the answers!

Just tried: flight mode, screen off, location off, BT and NFC off, no GApps, just sitting on the desk starting with fully charged. After half an hour the estimated battery life is 10h, 6m. Not great. The battery felt fine last night for a couple of hours of experimenting with secure messengers, then fully charged, then down to 2% by morning. I'll try uninstalling the messengers in case they are draining the battery - wait for an update.

I could not find a way of disabling the clock on the sleeping screen. It disappears after a while, but the screen power consumption is suspect.

Well, this is the first alpha release, the things with power consumption might improve soon.

----------------
Update: I found a way to disable the clock on the sleep screen and the battery life increased to 23 hours, mobile network 1% (still the flight mode is on), phone idle 1%.

The method to disable the display was to press the power button while the notification panel is open...- perhaps another bug.

You should be able to disable the always on display in the quick settings (AOD) and give your test a retry :).
Just tried the AOD button: first enabled it and then disabled again... - it worked! Not sure, though, whether any of my previous attempts to modify the settings via adb played any role. I'll repeat timing of the battery with this setting. Thanks.

Theoretically it should be enabled by default (what I will change in the next build for sure), but anyway, it's good if you can turn it off yet.

With AOD button on then off the battery life is estimated as "more than 2 days left" (flight mode, idle). Let's wait for a little longer...
-------------------
Update: after 11h it predicts "5 days left" and counting! Very good! The graph shows slightly increased power consumption in the first hour, and then it goes almost horizontal. I think it will be more than 5 days at idle, perhaps twice as many.
-------------------
Further update: after 1 day 5 hours it says 9 days left. The way the graph in Battery Usage page goes makes me think that it will last about 20 days if left idle. I don't know what caused the quick discharge in the first hour; after that the graph is a straight line pointing beyond 20 days mark...
-------------------
Yet another update: 28 days predicted after 23 hours of idling. Very good! This is with all wireless interfaces off, Always On Display off and NavBar off.

For reference - Note 4 with cdDroid 9 under similar conditions reports 45 days.

I checked this rom. the sd card is not mounted as internal memory, the phone falls into the bootloop before the lock screen, after which the bootloop again. wipe data or format does not help
-----------------
udp. the backlight of the hardware buttons does not work, although it is enabled in the settings
-----------------
upd. the indication of charge percentages in the status bar does not work when the display is selected with a circle inside the icon

Simply remove the sdcard.

You're right, this will come later from lineageos.
upd. the indication of charge percentages in the status bar does not work when the display is selected with a circle inside the icon
Ok, this will also be fixed from the linageos side.

now I use the 7100 as the main device, I actively use it, I can quickly share bugs if I find them. is it possible to contact you directly without communicating on the formum? do you use a group of testers in telegram?

    Last update. random reboots are gone. everything is great ... but ... after a call (incoming or outgoing), the processor frequency does not rise more than 200 MHz, large lags begin. Changing governor doesn't help. reboot helps
    Thanks for your report, I will check this asap,
    some one reported a similar thing on LOS 18.1.
