    CyanogenMod 13.0 for Samsung Galaxy J5

    Your warranty is now void.
    I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    thermonuclear war, or you getting fired, because the alarm app failed. Please
    do some research if you have any concerns about features included
    before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    Bugs and changelogs are in 2nd post !


    1. Make sure you have updated to stock 5.1.1.
    2. Download the ROM from the direct link for your device in the Downloads section below.
    3. Download 6.0.1 ARM GAPPS. (Nano preferred. Long-pressing the Home button will show Google Search)
    4. Transfer the zip files to your SD card.
    5. Reboot to recovery mode. ( Vol UP + Home + Power )
    Note: It is highly recommended to use TWRP Recovery
    6. Optional: Do nandroid backup.
    7. Full wipe /system, /internalsd, /data, /cache, as well as the Android folder from your external SD.
    Note: You will have to format data as well if you want to use data encryption
    8. Install CM zip and GApps zip.
    9. Reboot to system.
    10. Setup your device.

    LiveDisplay is a feature for adapting display colors for night usage.
    You can enable it by turning on GPS and data/wifi for some seconds.
    Then go to Settings -> Display & lights -> LiveDisplay -> Display mode and change from off to automatic.
    Then your phone will know when to adjust your display for night usage through your local GMT zone.
    You can also adjust Color Temperature for Day/Night modes.

    Enable Wi-Fi and check Settings->Display & lights->Cast screen->Enable wireless display, connect both devices, and play!​

    That's really frustrating for CyanogenMod to be shut down as a project upstream! No matter what, me, @#Henkate, and @ganesh varma will continue to support this device, and try our best to provide killer ROMs! :D
    Let me know below by commenting:

    Which is your most preferred ROM flavour?
    What are the features that makes this flavour unique to you?

    Thank you again for all the support throughout this year!

    A new build for J500F with the camera fix will be available in a couple of hours for testing. Nick seems to be busy with some work so I'll be building for other variants once the results come out for this build. The other variants will be followed in the upcoming days.

    Note: This will be the last and final build of CyanogenMod 13 as we are now moving to LineageOS. There will be no further development of this rom! :good:
    FINALLY! I have the 8GB variant, and the latest update disabled my ability to rollback. (it's an irreversible firmware update) I'm just waiting until this thing is usable enough.

    If you have an 8GB, it's literally impossible to install anything with all the bloat.

    Thank you for this useful comment!
    CM13 has the option to format externalSD as internal. Also, users that flash irreversible firmwares will be able to have an AOSP based ROM.
    Instead of just waiting for CM13 to be stable, you can contribute to make this work faster. Search and find errors through logcat, discuss them here so we can take a look on them.
    This applies to every user out there. That's why XDA is made for, after all!
