Hi,

here you can find my version of LineageOS 20 for our Samsung Galaxy S3 (I9305).

This is a alpha build, also from the LineageOS side, there are typical functions still missing, so don't install it if you want a completely stable and completed ROM and don't report my already listet bugs!

Attention:

Sometimes it needs another reboot to find the sim card.

When you have BitGapps installed, you have to reflash them after every update!

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
  • Tethering via WIFI and Bluetooth
  • much more...
  • Random reboots
  • NFC
  • SD-Card can't be formatted as internal storage, this will cause a bootloop
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.
I would recommend to use microG instead of BitGapps,
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 :)

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

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.

Does the tmobile s3 need a different rom? I'm upgrading all my old phones I just found. You happen to be working on all the phones I have.

I'm sorry to tell you that the T-Mobile S3 has a different chipset (Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960) so this is not compatible.
This device never reached a higher android version than 7, I would love to bring Android 13 to this device, but I don't own this model.

Are you in the US?

Hello,
the volume of voice recordings (e.g. whatsapp or signal) has always been too low for me in Lineage OS. In order for my interlocutors to understand me properly, I always had to increase the volume by changing the mixer_paths.xml in /root/vendor/etc/. Here is the video:

Unfortunately this file does not exist in Lineage OS 20. Does anyone know how to increase the volume of voice recordings here?

I'm so grateful you have brought my N8000 and i9305 back to life!

My children are learning and playing on my N8000 tablet. I have donated for N8000.

I re-wiped and installed your latest on i9305
20.0-20221108-HTML6405-i9305.zip
MicroG

Disabled animations
Android UI is running fast!

I tested YouTube app. It works but drops some frames on 360p, and any higher quality levels it drops a lot of frames.

scrcpy working nicely (not used with YouTube of course)

I'm still testing etc. It looks like i9305 will be useful with your ROM :)

-------------

Regarding your 3.4 kernel for "S3" (probably i9300?)

@html6405

Please excuse my ignorance about kernels on Samsung Android.

Kernel Q1. Can your 3.4 "S3" Kernel work on S3 LTE i9305?

No Q2: Would you be able to compile 3.4 kernel for i9305?

Yes Q2. If I install html6405_kernel_-e48ea6b54b22-m0-3.4.zip Must I also install boot_img_3.4.img

Yes Q3. In what order do I install the kernel zip and boot_img zip?
